Miss UUmann was fined 450 but her jail term was sus- pended. In 1972, the actress stopped at a police roadblock while driving home from a party, and a po- liceman asked her to take a blood test to determine the amount of alcohol in her sys- tem. She failed and was con- victed of dunken driving and sentenced to the jail term. In an appeal case, two doc- tors, both close friends of the actress, testified that Miss Ull- mann was "deeply depressed" and added (teat a jail term would cause "irreparable dam- age" to her health. The Norwegian Supreme Court suspended the lower court jail sentence and turned down an appeal May 19 by the state prosecutor. EILAT, Israel (AP) Actor Burt Lancaster and his son are going to star in a television movie about Moses. Art director Luigi Basile, here to check location sites, said shooting is scheduled to be- gin in August in Jericho, and to move to Eilat in September. The f ilm will be entitled The Lawmaker. Burt Lancaster Jr. will play MDses as a young man, and his father will fill the role of the older Moses. LARCHMONT, N.Y. (AP) Harold Hastings, 54, one of Broadway's leading orchestra conductors, died in his sleep yesterday, apparently of a heart attack. He conducted the Broadway hit A Little Night Music as usual Tuesday night. Hastings had conducted Broadway musicals presented by Hal Prince since 1954, in- cluding Pajama Game, Damn Yankees, and Caba- ret. DORCHESTER, England (AP) Author and broadcaster Kenneth Allsop died last week from a massive overdose of barbiturates, an inquest was told yesterday, but the coroner returned an open verdict be- cause he said there was no in- dication of how the overdose was taken. Allsop, a television news com- mentator, lost a leg in the Sec- ond World War and his doctor testified that he had been in acute pain ever since. He was accustomed to taking a mixture of barbiturates and aspirin to relieve the pain, the physician said. An autopsy showed the 53- year-old Allsop had four times the lethal dose of barbiturates in his blood at the time of his death. A book, the collected works of Dorothy Parker, was found open on his bed when his body was discovered, the inquest was told. Two passages in the Amer- ican journalist's book had been underlined. The first read: "There is nothing good in life that will not be taken away." The second said: "Mrs. Parker says she can find no other means of dealing 'with the pain of being." Found dead in trailer CHICAGO (AP) Voltaire (Volly) deFaut, 69, longtime jazz clarinetist, was found dead in his house trailer in subur- ban South Chicago Heights. DeFaut recorded his final record last spring. DeFaut was born in Little Bock, Ark., but spent almost all of his life in Chicago. He was playing the violin at 6 and the saxophone and clarinet at 14. In the 1920s he played with the popular New Orleans Rhyrhmn King and the Detroit bands of Isham Jones and Jean Goldkette. In that same decade he recorded with Jelly Ball Morton and Muggsey Spanier. Singer cleared in drug case MIDDLESBROUGH, England (Reuter) Texas-born pop singer Johnny Nash was cleared yesterday of possess- ing hashish at a nightclub here last September, after police evi- dence was found to be conflict- ing. Judge Maxwell Gosnay said there was a conflict regarding the presence of a piece of hash- ish in a suitcase, and instructed the jury to return a verdict of not guilty. Nash, 32, -who also has a home in Jamaica, gave a Lon- don address. tt.tl.-CnM hi tali W Snill Oijtcfl" "REAL TREASURE" CAN BE YOURS with Whih't DtKclir SEE LOCAL DEAIM HIM AIOUT THE SUPER-SENSITIVE TKANSMlTTEMECtlVEt tix MtHl Dlttflm Designed for Mom, Dad and the Kids The CO1NM ASTER '4 is a Transmitter-Receiver, light-weight. for ease of handling and operation Detects Gold Silver and Copper nuggets, rings, eoins. jewelry, guns, strong boxes and other metaU.

The ques- tion was posed by Cervantes in Don Quixote and the answer: We can. The stage musical drama Man of La Mancha was a very good thing, indeed, and its Broadway production picked up a Tony and the Drama Cri- tics awards tor best produc- tion of 1965. Since then it has been produced successfully the world over, not tew so on the local stage. Now in Arthur Killer's pic- turization there is to be found too much and too little. To much confusion; com- pounded for the moviegoer not familiar with the original pro- duction in the cuts from Quixote to Cervantes to Qui- jana; in the lingering se- quences that mark arrival at prison and the inn. Too little excitement; In the overture, marvellously thril- ling on stage, but here lack- lustre, in songs dropped or de- livered without fire. Sophia Loren in the dual role Aldonza-Dulcinea particularly suffers. Physically perfect, she has been allowed to sing her own songs and her breathy whisper takes the wallop out of the trollop. Peter O'Tooole is a favorite actor. But here his remote, nerve-ends showing approach to the classic character is not persuasive. And why shoot the transifguration of Cervantes into Quixote half-face and in shadow? On stage this is pre- sented directly to the audience involving them in the mystery. And James Coco, well, is James Coco. Certainly not Sancho Panza, devoted squire. Much of the fine and leaven- ing humor slips by Mr. Coco and the audience. Lacking most is the quality of naivety, a necessary adjunct to the madness of Quixote. Missing, too. is the telling stroke in the choice of the prison madman to play the humane padre against the horror of the In- quisition. There are lifts of course: In the tilt with the Gino Conforti's Barber's Song, in Harry Andrews as the Gover- nor Innkeeper. But they are too few and the production is too long. DISASTER: Soylent Green came and went, quickly, praise be. If O'Toole overworks his nerve ends, Charlton Heston seems to root his acting in his neck muscles. And %vMle the pollution was probable in 2020, it was surely reasonable to ex- pect that dress, trucks, guns would not be so outdated. But perhaps director Richard Flei- sher was being meaningful.

Robinson's final screen appear- ance deserved a better vehicle than Soylant Green. But even there this fine actor stood alone in quality. His "going without being sentimental, re- called those last performances of Spencer Tracy in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, Rob- ert Donat and Inn of the Sixth Happiness. A legacy of this fine actor has been left in the book Edward G. Robinson's World of Art.
