Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta i uoday. June LETHBRIDGE ACTOR PREFERS STAGE OVER MOVIES NEW YORK (AP) One minute Jon Voight is clowning, poking fun at himself. The next, he is deep into serious discussion of what he says really matters his family, the theatre, growing as an actor and as a person. Tall, blonde and slightly rumpled, Voight was homeward bound to Los Angeles after filming the suspense thriller The Odessa File in Munich. Ahead, he said, were months to relax and prepare a play for regional theatre. "I need to return to work on the he said. "It's the only place other than the classroom where I can do a thoroughly creditable job. I can feel myself stretching a bit and it refreshes me so that I can do the quick work required in films." Last year the 35 year old actor appeared as Stanley Kowalski in a revival of A Streetcar Named Desire in Los Angeles opposite Faye Dunaway, then took his own production company and the same Buffalo. GRADUALLY IMPROVED "I think it got better as it went along, although critics weren't necessarily in agreement. By closing night I was pretty good." Appearing on stage takes away the distance between actor and audience that comes in movies and "makes you feel more like a person." "I'd like to do more comedy, classics, not necessarily big stuff but something pertinent to today's situation." What he has in mind initially is a production of Tennessee Williams' Camino Real. "I can work with people I admire, get work for them some of the people who need work People in films can afford to do it, even if it means losing a little money." Eventually, Voight said, Art and cultural centres attract millions annually RED DEER (CP) Those seeking financial contributions for the arts should emphasize that 100 million Canadians annually visit artistic and cultural centres many more than those attending sports events, the Arts and You Conference was told during the weekend. Arnold Edinborough, journalist and member of the Board of Directors of the Stratford Festival, said 60 million visit museums, 20 million attend performances and another 20 million witness non professional performances plus many more who support unorganized artist endeavours. "It takes an immeasurable amount of pressure by a man who knows his facts and the position of those he wants a donation from to'convince businesses to get off their corporate he said. He urged art fund raisers to take their cue from charity and overcome business inertia which keeps donations from that sector at about 68 cents per of profit. Business is jubt beginning to awaken to its community responsibilities and the opportunities for public relations and advertising benefits from making donations, Dr. Edinborough said. An open discussion on fund raising prompted such suggestions as: on the income tax sheltering aspects of donations to the arts as advertising and public relations deductions. appeal to business people, as part of the community, to support cultural and artistic events as part of a healthy community. awareness among those seeking donations about the financial status of the company concerned.

His early plans included following the footsteps of his father, Yonkers, N.Y., golf professional. His scores were in the low 70s but his interest changed to painting, sculpture and drawing and he majored in fine arts at university. SWITCHED TO STAGE Then Voight found a new interest in dramatics and said he realized he could never express himself as well in drawing as he could in performing. Selective about scripts, he has appeared in Catch 22, Deliverance, The All American Boy and Conrack, in which he teaches school on an isolated all black island. In the Odessa File Voight will appear as a young German journalist who, for personal reasons, tracks down the commander of a Second World War concentration camp, a change from the happy go lucky but committed school 'teacher of Conrack. In Conrack he played against 23 scene stealing black youngsters who had never acted before, recruited from a church group. "They were genuine and wonderful Kids. Anything they did was perfectly believable that jargon of theirs had a wonderful poetry. It teaches you a lot about yourself to work with kids. "They could all sing and I can't, really. There's a scene where one student says, 'Conrack sing like a frog.' That's about right. As long as it's silly I'm fine, but if I have to be serious I'm in trouble. "One of the kids came up to me and said: 'You're shy, aren't you, Jon? I had a cousin that was shy.' Every day with these kids was like that. They'll teli you straight just what they feel." LIVES IN APARTMENT Voight's son, just about a year old, was born just before filming began for Conrack. "We've never had a house. It's time I thought about my son and got a house with a stream and trees." He plans to take a vacation with his wife Marsheline. read no scripts and relax. He takes his work seriously. "I'm experimenting and I want the freedom to experiment and fail. Acting is getting to whatever is the most distorted part of you and stretching to give your best performance, maybe even do Hamlet. "But I want to do stupid things too stupidity is rampant today. "Most of all, I want to do a lot of different kinds of things and grow." Train holdup held to mark last run A b by Mann times changing Film writer claims fiction can't match real incidents LOS ANGELES (AP) "In these times, fiction can't live up to what's happening in real observes film writer Abby Mann, who has specialized in converting actual events into screen entertainment." "Take the Patty Hearst story. A screen writer couldn't imagine a script so bizarre. Or Watergate. If it were done as a movie, it would be heavily dramatic." Mann points out that even The Exorcist was based on a real-life event, as were such hits as Patton, The French Connection and Papillon. The trend is favorable to Abby Mann, a former reporter who knows how to dramatize the news. His first movie script, Judg- ment at Nuremberg, won Mann an Oscar. He did his own legwork on that one, interviewing German judges about their activities during the Nazi regime. His next assignment is to chronicle the plight of the In- dian in the United States today. His producer: Marlon Brando. At present, Mann is over- seeing the filming of Mike Frankovich's production Report to the Commissioner, based on the James Mills novel. He says it's not just another movie about corruption in the New York police department. "It's a reflection of our society, showing how a young white cop. a white undercover policewoman and a black pusher are destroyed, by the establishment because they try to go against the system." Mann said the Brando project began when "Marlon TITO IS 82 BELGRADE (Reuter) President Tito celebrated his 82nd birthday Saturday with every appearance that he intends to stay at the helm as long as possible. Yugoslav leaders say there are no plans for succession. called me one day to ask if I would like to write a script about the Indians. "I have attended trials in Sioux Falls and St. Paul and I've talked to a lot of Indians in those areas. I'm beginning to understand that prejudice is so immense that murders of Indians are sometimes not prosecuted. "It's making it hard for me to dramatize the story without making it melodramatic." Brando will play a white man. Production is expected to begin in November, with real locales and Indians being used. EDMONTON (CP) Masked bandits on horseback "held up" the last passenger train to run between Edmonton and Dawson Creek, B.C. But the Mounties were there, "arrrested" at least one of the troublemakers and then put him back on the train at the next station. Mayor Bob Elliott of Beaverlodge, Alta., took part in the holdup and captured a member of the Grande Prairi.e Chamber of Commerce on the train. The gag holdup was a noisy ending for the 500-mile passenger route to the north operated by the Northern Alberta Railway Co. (NAR) since 1912. The passenger runs have been dying quietly with less than people travelling the track last year. Some days, there wasn't even one passenger, said NAR General Manager Ken Perry. The last train pulled into Edmonton Saturday morning after leaving Dawson Creek the afternoon before and travelling through the Peace River country. Freight service will continue. "It's a painful thing to lose said locomotive engineer Bill Fee. It's an apex to finish as an engineer of a passenger train." Now he'll probably work on fneght trains. On the last run was first- time passenger Bert Hughes who lives west of Edmonton. paramount STARTS FRIDAY WILLIAM PETER BIATTY'S THE EXORCIST JosffihE Lfunf andAiro Emiassj present An Ittlo Ziiigarelli Film ADULT i COLOR An Avco Embassy Release Transit fare increase causes big 'nightmare' FRANKFURT (AP) Young leftists angered by a big increase in Frankfurt's public transit fares have turned the West German city's rush hours into a commuter's nightmare and caused more than in damage. Authorities raised the fare to 35 cents from 27 cents last week to help finance the new public transport system which links streetcars, buses and commuter trains in a 30-mile radius. The new fares are among Europe's highest. Young demonstrators took to the streets last week, demanding free rides and saying they represented the working man against "exploitive" city istrators.

Damage to trains, tracks and businesses is more than authorities estimate. Protesters have caused another damage, to new computerized ticket vending machines at streetcar and subway stations. The protesters usually wait until rush hour and then mass along tracks in the middle of the street until police move in. Armored riot trucks run interference, spraying water and tear gas into the crowd as the streetcar glides along behind. Youths follow, hurling fruit and paint at the vehicles.
