Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, June 7, 1974 Choice of plays for festival fans STRATFORD (CP) The Stratford Festival's 22nd sea- son, which runs to the end of October, has been launched with more than 40 per cent of its tickets sold. Bruce Swerdfager, general manager, said this advance ticket sale is about equal to that of last year's festival at this time of year. And despite poor reviews for one of last year's festival broke previous box office records. This year, audiences are being offered a choice of roll- icking farce, high Greek drama, romantic love, and in the On the main festival stage, the program includes: The Imaginary 17th- century farce and satire on hypochondria, directed by Jean Gascon and starring William Hutt as the invalid, and Pat Galloway as his saucy housemaid, Toinette. tale of the prince of ancient Tyre who loses his wife and daughter only to rediscover them years later, then borne down by grief and troubles. Nicholas Pennell stars as Per- icles, and Mr Gascon again directs. Love's Labor's fairy- tale romance, directed by Michael Bawtree. starring Mr. Hutt, Mr. Pennell, and Miss Galloway again. It is cast in the popinjay dress style of the 1820s. July 23. with Edward Atienza. Douglas Rain, Martha Henry and Powys Thomas, 'all of whom have important supporting roles in the other plays. This is the story of King John of Magna Carta fame, though it deals with another part of his life. PLAY PRAISED The production of Love's Labor's Lost, which opened Wednesday night, won praise from most of the theatre critics Urjo Kareda of the Toronto Star called it "the best show QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg. PHONE: 328-7684 in town so far this summer." Myron Galloway of the Montreal Star wrote that it is normally a tedious play, but "what has in the past seemed tiresome has miraculously disappeared." Herbert Whittaker of the Toronto Globe and Mail said the play is a sad comedy but the production "teaches us to love Shakespeare's strange wedding of romance and conceit." "One leaves Michael Bawtree's pro- duction determined to return." But Dave Billington of the Montreal Gazette, found the production labored and nearly lost, with stilted acting and heavy emphasis on the stylistic interpretation. Economist to make U.S. home LONDON (CP) Canadian- born Harry Johnson, one of Britain's most respected and outspoken economists, says he's returning permanently to North America. High taxes and steeply- rising living costs, says Johnson, make it futile and impossible to continue working and living, even on a part-time basis, in Britain. Johnson has been professor of economics at the London School of Economics (LSE) since 1966 and has occupied the same position at the University of Chicago since 1959. He is classed, however, as a British resident. The 51-year-old academic cited recent tax changes in- troduced by the Labor govern- ment as the immediate cause of his resignation from LSE and his decision to be based permanently in Chicago in future. Described by The Times to- day as "one of Britain's two or three internationally prominent economists.'" Johnson says it has become clear that living standards of senior academic personnel here will be progressively reduced by increased taxes and inflation. NOTICE PUBLIC HEARING Pubic UtiBKes Boon!

DATED AT the City of Calgary, m 1he Prov- ince of Alberta, this 28th day of May, A D 1974. PUBLIC UTILITIES BOARD No. 909 John J. Bowlen Building 620 7th Avenue, S.W., Calgary, Alberta M. H.

Need contributions from big firms to aid the arts OTTAWA Operating costs of the arts is expected to quadruple during the next five years and the Canadian Council hopes big business will provide a substantial share of the needed money. A background paper prepared by the council for a meeting with 65 businessmen today estimates the operating needs of the arts will increase to S175 million by the early 1980s from a 1972 level of million Capital requirements for construction of new facilities should remain constant at about million a year. The report, prepared with the help of 11 businessmen from across Canada, says the private sector of the economy must play an important part in funding the arts "in order to keep the thrust of our society private rather than public." To maintain a proper balance between public and private assistance, the report suggests a formula for operating funds under which the federal government would pay per capita, the provincial governments and municipalities and private sources per capita. However, the report said private sources should play a larger role in providing money for construction of new build- ings and other capital projects. It suggests 50 per cent of such funds should come from private sources, 25 per cent from municipalities and 25 per cent from the federal and provincial governments. Efforts should also be made to encourage corporations to purchase works of art for new buildings.

KRESGES Paris best place for movie binge By VINCENT CANBY New York Times Service PARIS An American in Paris for the first time in several years was less likely to be impressed by President Valery Giscard d'Estaing's well-publicized walk to the Elysee Palace 10 days ago than by the easy availability of Frais Du Bois so early in the season and of movies, of a larger number and a greater variety, than one is apt to see in a year in New York. Curing the week highlighted by Giscard d Estaing's promenade (which is, after all, the sort of thing Harry Truman did all the a movie nut here had his choice of an estimated 220 different films (he might have 90 in New York) being shown in commercial theatres, as well as of several dozen being shown in the regular programs at the cinematheque Francaise. FESTIVAL HAPPY Individual theatres have gone festival happy. There were festivals devoted to the films of Bergman Garbo, Peckinpah, Fellini and Godard. All in one week. The Studio Marigny was presenting a festival of Tom Jerry cartoons and the Studio Parnasse a program it called a Festival of Great American Films, including "McCabe and Mrs. Miller" and "Dr. Strangelove." This festival was not to be confused with the festival at the Boite a Films, which was called simply a festival of the American cinema and included such things as "Five Easy "Deliverance" and "They Shoot Horses, Don't I haven't seen any official figures, but Paris would seem to have more movie theaters per capita than any other city in the western world. It's a place in which to realize one's wildest dream of a movie binge. Pariscop, the local version of Cue magazine, lists 324 theaters in Paris and its immediate banlieus. Many look rather like our old nicklodeons, small, shoe-box shaped parlors with hard chairs, but there are lots of fancily decorated multiple houses, either big old theaters that have been converted into two or more smaller theaters or brand new constructions. The Quintette in the Latin quarter is actually five theatres with one roof. The result, of course, is that almost any kind of film will eventually have a commercial release here. They may not become successful but at least they get the chance to be seen. BIG HIT One of the biggest hits at the moment is George Roy Hill's better known at home as "The Sting." The highbrow critics as well as the members of the public adore its vitality. While the average Parisian's movie madness has transformed motion picture exhibition into one of France's most booming cottage industries, production here isn't terribly exciting. The best news at the moment is that Luis Bunuel and Jacques Tati have already completed or are completing new works. Bunuel. 74. keeps saying he's going to retire but he keeps being brought back from Mexico by his producer. Serge Silberman. to make just one more. He is now finishing the "mixing" (sound with image) on his new comedy, "The Phantom of Freedom." Asked the other day what iris about, he cautioned his listener not to be confused by the title. "I once made a film called 'Un Chien Bunuel said, "but it was about neither a dog nor Andalusia." There may be no phantoms and no freedom in his new work, but people connected with the production describe it as full of Bunuel's thoughts about this permissive age. Jacques Tati's new film, which was shown out of competition at the Cannes Film Festival, should not, I think, be called "a film" which prepares the viewer for another one of Tati's extraordinary, visual meditations upon the lunacies of civilization. "Parade" is not a film in the sense that "Mr. Hulot's "My and "Traffic" are films. Tati prefers to call his new one "a which it most gloriously is. "Parade" has its genesis in a television show Tati did in Stockholm. It's the record of that appearance, the setting being a circus ring, with Tati, as himself, performing some of his classic mime routines among the other acts, including a troupe of mad jugglers, supplemented by audience reaction, particularly that of an absorbed little girl in a blue dress who may be Tati's greatest fan and critic. It's a very special, very funny film that ultimately becomes very moving as an informal but joyous statement by a unique talent. Festival off to good start NEW YORK (CP) Two New York drama critics agreed today that Canada's Stratford Festival at Stratford. Ont.. is off to a good start this year with its opening night production of Moliere's last play, The Imaginary Invalid. Clive Barnes, writing in the Times, called it a "sprightly beginning" and said the play had a "kind of slipper'd ease" about it since the Canadian company already had taken it on a lengthy Australian tour. He added: "Too often comedy at Stratford is played to the self-congratulatory obbligato of Canadian character actors furiously character acting. Here, while the histrionics were still slightly overloaded, it all seemed in scale with the production." He praised costume designer Tanya Moiseiwitsch and the acting performances got the 22nd festival "off to a healthy start." He found Miss Galloway's characterization of the saucy maid Antoinette "most effective" and credited William Needles. Richard Curnock. Pamela Brook and Pernell with good performances.
