Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta PAOf 3 Can't stump the Chief Don Galloway discovers HOLLYWOOD (NBC) Don Galloway of star- ring Raymond Burr on the NBC Television Network has a favorite game he plays. It might be called "Stump the but it's a game he's never won. It is Galloway's delight to dig up obscure facts about unre- lated topics ranging from the feeding habits of pumas to the building of bridges, and spring them on Burr to see if he can contribute anything to a discussion about either pumas or bridges. "I've never yet stumped him Galloway says with a laugh. "He'll add some obscure fact to what you al- ready know and you say to yourself, "This man can't pos- sibly know that much about that many things. He must read an encyclopedia in his spare time. Either that, or he has an all-absorbing sponge in place of a brain. The guy never forgets anything he's ever AVOIDS TRAPS Burr is well aware Gallo- way's desire to channel him into areas where he will have to say, "I don't know a thing about that." So his efforts to keep from getting trapped are equally amusing to onlookers. As a matter of fact, it is ex- tremely difficult to slump "Chief Ironside" since pre-show business days were spent in such varied occupations as for- est ranger, ranch hand, radio announcer, salesman and a dozen other temporary jobs which contributed to his spe- cialized knowledge in many fields. In addition to a naturally re- tentive mind, Burr has a high- ly developed sense of competi- tion. If somebody is an expert, he wants to be a better one. When he began to grow orchids on a small sunporch, the early results intrigued him. Soon, having purchased a new home, he built several conservatories to expand his orchid collection. Before long, when he would meet friends for dinner, he would bring an exquisite or- chid for every lady in the party one a different variety. When he went in for land- scape gardening, Burr not only planted terraces of flowers which thrive in California, but he imported tropical trees and plants he was convinced would do well, given his attention. CREDITS READING With architects, he discusses the marble he wants used around the fireplace in his bed- room. With gardeners, he spe- cifies exactly the mulch he wants on the new bulbs. With the builders of his swimming pool, he gives orders for the engineering of the outdoor pool. Where did he learn it all? Ac- Curtis finished with vampire pics despite success By JERRY BUCK LOS ANGELES (AP) Dan Curtis has had it with vam- pires. Vampires have been good for him, and he has been good for them, but when he finishes di- recting Dracula in England he is going to drive the stake. From ABCs Dark Shadows to The Night Stalker, Curtis has made those fly-by-night crea- tures if not respectable at least sympathetic. In the last two years Curtis has emerged as television's pre-eminent maker of horror films, a chilling genre not always successfully trans- ferred to the home screen. The Night Stalker was the highest-rated TV movie ever shown. Its sequel, The Night Stran- gler, also racked up high points, as did The Norliss Tapes on NBC, For ABC, he made such classics as The Picture of Do- rian Gray and Frankenstein, and is finishing The Turn of the Screw, starring Lynn Redgrave. At the end of April he re- turned to England to begin Dra- cula. he said, "that'll bo the last vampire picture I'll ever make. "I've been successful, but I think I've run out of things to do with vampires. Unless some- one comes along with some- thing new I'll never do an- other." PALANCE STARS Jack Palance plays Count Dracula in the two-hour movie for CBS and Simon Ward co- stars as Arthur Holmwood. "I wouldn't have done Dra- cula if Palance hadn't agreed to do Curtis said. "I won't fall for all those cliches done before. I took all the stupid things out of the novel. We made him a human being. Admittedly he's terrify- ing, but when he goes in the end you'll feel sorry for him." Curtis, a large, ragged man with a massive head, said be- lievability is the key to the hor- ror film. "When you do a picture like Dracula you must remove all the unbelievable he said. "He won't change into a bat, but he will wear the cape when he goes marauding. It would be a mistake to cliange that." "Some producers don't care about the story. It's juet an ex- cuse to get a couple of quarts of blood on the screen. That's not what scares. It's a mood, a feel- ing, a whole ambience." The viewer must also feel a twinge of sympathy for vil- lain. "It has to have more ele- ments than those that Curtis said. "You must have certain human dimensions that make you care, or, in my opin- ion, it fails.' Curtis, a brusque aggressive man, is impatient with, critics of horror films, but also feels frus- trated that he has been typecast into that field. He has, on occa- sion, expressed a desire to make a Western or a love story. "Everylime I turn around I've got that label laid on lie said. cording to Burr, watching, lis- tening, eavesdropping on ex- perts and above ail, reading. Galloway has about given up, he admits. "I tried word games but his vocabulary is phe- nomenal. Then I made the mis- take of trying geography, for- getting how much Ray has travelled." "One day I said to him that I thought his island in Fiji was probably the most beautiful place in the world" Galloway says. Burr came back with the answer: "As it happens, you're right. And I know, because I've been every place in the world." Galloway says: "If you're go- ing to stump an expert, pick somebody other than Raymond Burr. He out-experts any ex- pert I ever met."
