Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thundoy, S, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGE KERAIO f Actor predominated production Shakespear's King Lear given full epic treatment By VICTOR STANTON STRATFORD, Ont. (CP) The Stratford Festival gavo Shakespeare's King Lear the full epic treatment in the blood- and-thunder tradition Wednes- day night in a spectacular pro- duction highlighted by William Hutl's towering performance as Lear. The third productin of the fes- tival's 20th season, it was the first in wliich an actor predomi- nated. In the previous nights' pro- ductions of Shakespeare's As You Like It and Alfred de Mils- set's Lorenzaccio, the actresses Shelly as Rosalind on Monday night and Pat Galloway as Tuesday night's Lorenzaccio the standouts. But as Lear, Hutt was an indomitable stage presence. A capacity audience gave him the first standing ovation of the three opening performances. Both Miss Shelley and Miss Galloway, along with Elizabeth Shepherd, gave fino support "ROBERTS and AKA1'' Professional Tape Recorders and Stereo JACK'S RADIO T.V. SALES SERVICE 302 13lh St. N.

Director David William garnished the produc- tion with such gory on-stage de- tail as the squishing underfoot of a freshly-plucked-out eyeball and the plunging of a hatchet in a man's back. As with the two previous pro- ductions, critics did not come to any consensus: Urjo Kareiia, Toronto "It is an alert and handsome production hut it will not haunt us. Hutt's wealth of physi- cal and vocal technique is fre- quently intrusive." Jim C I e Til c n t s, Hamilton (the production) soars more than it stumbles. William Hutt gives a per- formance that sprawls across the emotions." refer C r o s s 1 e y, Winnipeg Free Hutt has given us a dynamic and power- ful Lear just the proper touches of sublety." Don Braid, Kifcliencr-Waler- loo Lear comes down like a wounded duck. Me (Mr. Hutt) emerges as half a Lear at best." Zelda Heller, Montreal "Tin's may not be Lear entirely as you have dreamed it. But it is Lear as he will haunt you for a long lime to come." William Glover- Associated David Wil- liam's only partially-resounding triumph must rate as consider- able accomplishment."

NEW YORK (AP) -i- Dental surgeons at Brookdale Medi- cal Centre have removed an impacted tooth from the jaw of a 16-year-old youth and im- planted it in his twin sister's mouth. Dr. Norman Cranin, direc- tor of dental and oral surgery at the Brooklyn hospital, said it won't be known for four or five years whether the tooth, a molar, will take root or be rejected by the recipient, Janet Ramsay. Tlie donor, John Ramsay, had six extra teeth that had formed but could not grow normally. Three were re- moved here and one was planted in his sisters' mouth, in place of a just-removed ab- cessed tooth.

Cale might best be known for his writing of Eric Clapton's hit single "After Mid night." This number, along with II others, appears on a recording which can best be described as impressive. The album's music is mostly slow rhythm and blues, with touch of country mixed in.
