Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, 3, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Wants to be himself in show biz Female impersonator plans change HOLLYWOOD (NEA) One of the hottest club acts these days is when Barbra Streisand, Judy Garland and Phyllis Diller come out and entertain then they all turn out to be Jim Bailey, doing his devastating impersonations. If you get a change to see Bailey in action, grab it quick, because he won't be doing it too much longer. Bailey says he hopes that, sooner or later, he'll be able to give up the impersonation business for good. He wants to be just himself, appearing as Jim Bailey and entertaining the public as Jim Bailey. Bailey objects, understandably, to the old term "female impersonator" for what he does. It has come to be sort of a sleazy term. He'd rather that you call what he does "character enactment." Whatever it's called, it's a smash. But it was only designed as a kind of stopgap, a gimmick with which he could establish himself. Gradually, he plans to faze it out of his act. Already he's dropped his Mae West "character enactment" completely. Bailey is a Philadelphian and his early goal was to be a concert pianist. But, after seven years of study, his teacher said, fou don't have you ever considered So he considered singing. He was doing fair to OK as a singer, but no more. That is when he decided he had to Cannes international film festival event has purpose Help raises Canadian portrait photographer Youseff Karsh joins skating champion Karen Magnussen and Muscular Dystrophy Associationspostenchild Catherine Rowe in celebrating a complete sell-out of a recent Ice Capades benefit show.

Doldrums on Broadway deepen as season ends NEW YORK (AP) Broad- way's doldrums deepened ominously during the 1973-74 season now ending. Although box-office gross was up about million to million from the previous June-May season, there were many signs that Broadway is in for a long illness. Revivals and rehashes were big, along with shows snared from off-Broadway and regional groups formerly snubbed. Just 10 of 53 exhibits could be termed native originals, and only two promised backer payoff. The profession's awareness that the old theatrical grder DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS HOSACK Certified Dtnttl Mechanic S 304 5th St. S. Ph. 327-7244 has changed drastically is evident in the five-day summit conference called FACT this week at Princeton, N.J. It is sponsored by the League of New York Theatres and other trade agencies. Research specialists have been invited, along with prominent people in public and private philanthropy. "Unless we all get together, we will sink said one member of the steering committee. The annual spate of prizes also reflects Broadway's pitiful regression. The Tony Award for best play went to The River Niger, which actually arrived last season from off-Broadway's Negro Ensemble Company. Best musical was Raisin, derived from Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun and first done by Wash- ington's Arena Stage.

Theatre owners tried to keep customers coming between legit productions with stop-gap bookings of such other luminaries as Liza Minnelli, Bette Midler, Josephine Baker and Sammy Davis. Most were profitable, but there was less reward from revivals of such past hits as The Desert Song, The Iceman Cometh, A Streetcar Named Desire and The Pajama Game. Given okay OTTAWA (CP) The Canadian Radio-Television Commission (CRTC) has approved a bid to transfer 71- per-cent of the issued shares of CFAX Radio 1070 Limited ot Melco Management Ltd. of Victoria. The commission requires as a condition for approval, that within 90 days the new owner must submit proposals for providing increased coverage of local live community events and public affairs. The decision was effective immediately By VINCENT CANBY New York Times Service CANNES, France Almost anything you want to say about the just concluded, 27th Cannes international film festival is true, including the fact that the telephone service is sometimes so bad that people communicate between hotels via telegram. However, there is probably no other event on earth that could bring together, under one metaphorical roof, such dissimilar American achievers as Jack Valenti, Lind tDovelace, Susan Sontag, Verald Damiano and Izzy Stone. Cannes is an event with a purpose. These people did not necessarily show up at the same parties to eat the same pate but, at one point and another, they were all here, along with Francis Ford Coppola, whose film, "The won the festival's grand prize, and Jack Nicholson, who was named the best actor for his performance in "The Last Detail." Some of the other Americans who made it a point to be on hand were Robert Altman, whose "Thieves Like Us" was in the festival competition, Elliott Gould, Buck Henry and Irwin Shaw, the only American on the festival jury this year. Shaw's novel, "Evening in draws upon the author's visit to the 1970 festival. TOPLESS SUNBATHING What attracts everybody? The spectacle of topless sunbathing isn't all that fascinating, at least after a week or so. It isn't the opportunity to stand in the crowded lobby of the Carlton Hotel on a cold, rainy morning, everyone pointed in the same direction like grumpy seagulls, looking toward the door, waiting for the sun to appear. It isn't the great French cooking, which often isn't that great, especially since so many Americans, unused to SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES Theatre "MASSACRE IN ROME" in color.
