Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, June 1, 1974 New York premiere in July Glowing reviews for Canadian film By WILLIAM BORDERS New York Times Service MONTREAL A brash Montrealer named Duddy Kravitz is facing his big test in New York this summer, and a lot of Canadian hopes are riding on his success. Duddy, a likable hustler, is the hero of a comic Canadian novel called "The Apprenticeship Of Duddy which has just been made into a movie The film, starring the American actor Richard Dreyfuss. opens in PANEL DISCUSSION GOVERNMENT INVOLVEMENT and LIMITATIONS f RESOURCE PEOPLE t HARRY STROM. BILL WISE i WERNER SCHMIDT A SPEAKERS RULON LELCHFIELD, ART DULLOCK GORDON DLANCHARD and FRANK ROMEKE JUNES p.m. HAT New York in July With gross receipts of in the six weeks since its release here, "Duddy Kravitz" is doing extremely well for a Canadian film, attracting crowds and glowing reviews in 12 cities from Vancouver to Montreal. But, as is often the case with the culture of this self- conscious country, many people here will judge its real success in terms of the American reaction that follows its New York Premiere. Moreover, the chance that it is getting in the United States, where Canadian films are not often shown, could have broader benefits as well for much of Canada's precarious English language film industry. Paramount, which is planning to spend half a million dollars promoting the film in the U.S., expects to open it in New York about six weeks from now and in two dozen other American cities soon after that. Some of its fans here predict that the picaresque figure of Duddy Kravitz, who is a kind of Jewish Holden Caulfield, will ultimately become as familiar in the U.S. as he is here, where the novel, first published in 1959, is now studied in some schools. The "apprenticeship" of the title is Buddy's flamboyant coming of age in tne streets of the tough Jewish working class neighborhood that belongs to neither of Montreal's two more visible worlds the French and the Anglo-Saxon. Mordecai Richler, 43-year- old author of both the novel and the screenplay, is the son of a junk peddler and the grandson of a Rabbi who came here from Poland Singing evangelist gaining popularity Whoop-up performer Nashville recording star Blake Emmons will be performing in Lethbridge during the first three days of the Whoop-up Days celebration, July 15 to 17. The Canadian-born country and western singer will appear in the Whoop-up Days parade and is expected to appear in shows at the Exhibition Pavilion.

Phobia: Petrified frightened by a young 4 Toastmastw vut and toasted meat Art price rise said NEW YORK (AP) Art is a world currency traded by thousands of people each year and its value is generally skyrocketing. Experts here say prices for European and American 19th- century paintings and moderns, including pop art. have increased as much as per cent in the last 15 years. They describe rising prices as "fantastic." "Because of changes in the economy, more people are thinking about investing in what goes on their floors or walls Then the economic law of supply and demand applies demand is on the rise so prices keep going said John Marion, president of Sotheby Parke Bernet, one of the best-known art auction galleries in the United States. The role of Japanese collectors was cited by Marion as an example of the international art market. The Japanese collectors began advertising in New York newspapers early last year for opportunities to purchase paintings, especially those of French impressionists and old masters. "They bought quite a bit at he said. "Then they weren't around for about six months. Now they're back again. And there is an influx of dealers from the Middle East, representing oil money that wants to buy ancient art." Another aspect of international art collecting as investment is explained by Fred Woolworth, owner of Coe-Kerr Gallery. He says Americans sometimes forget to look back to the days of the Soviet revolution and of war-torn Europe. "People fled catastrophe carrying jewelry and rolled- up canvases. Their money was worthless but they got a new start in life by selling art they'd collected." Recent prices indicate renewed interest. A Tiffany Wisteria lamp that sold 10 years ago for sold at auction this year for Some collectors visit a gallery to ask if a painting or sculpture or porcelain figure is a good investment. Woolworth said. When Picasso prints which sold for in 1969 are sold four years later for many investors see the art market as more sure thing than chance. "Real collectors buy paintings to live with. People are nervous today about loaning paintings or sculpture for a show, with their names on them. It might leave them open to art kidnapping, political stuff." Art "kidnapping" occurred last April when 19 old masters were taken from the Irish mansion of Sir Alfred Beit, including masterpieces by Verneer, Rubens, Goya and Velasquez Police, after painstaking investigation, recovered all the paintings and arrested a British heiress in connection with the theft. By SILVIO DOBRI Owen Sound Sun-Times OWEN SOUND, Ont. (CP) Don't tell Walt Gibbons he can't do it. By his own admission it might take the 29-year-old singing evangelist a bit longer than the average person to achieve his aims, but with persistence, he succeeds. Walt Gibbons is blind, and although this has held him back from his chosen vocation, the ministry, he has built a strong rapport with young people through his stamina, his singing and guitar work. At the age of six, Walt told his mother he wanted to be a missionary. But he later found that no one wanted to train a blind person for the ministry. He was told he would be a burden on the students and was politely refused. Every North American seminary of the Protestant denomination turned him away with one exception. The New Jersey-born ministry aspirant was accepted at Waterloo- Lutheran University, but again Walt found his acceptance was limited. After graduating in 1967 with a master of divinity degree, no one would give him a ministry to work in. Nor could he become ordained. Only recently was he offered a ministry in Manitoba, with ordination to take place next May. For the last three years, Walt has been working with the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship, singing and speaking to audiences wherever he goes. His uninhibited enthusiasm is contagious and he is quick in building a rapport with people Packing two guitars, he has visited 156 Ontario high schools during the last school year, performing for student assemblies and special concerts. "I like to get people involved in things and music is one way to get everyone he told one school The self-taught guitarist has a soft-sell approach to religion.
