Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, June 8, 1973 THE LE1HBRIDGE HERALD 13 Drive-in screen tested By BOB THOMAS LOS ANGELES (AP) A new icrcen will be tested this summer to help drive-in movie theatres avoid legislation pre- venting X-rated films from being seen from streets outside the theatres. The device would limit vision of movies to these sitting in their cars inside the drive-ins. Cities in several states, in- cluding Montana, Massachusetts and South Carolina, have ap- proved or are considering laws which would curtail drive-in of- ferings, and theatre executives fear the practice will spread. "What could we do, build a 30-foot fence around our drive- asked one executive. "That would not only cost a fortune; the ecologists would attack us for creating eyesores." The problem was viewed as a major one in the Industry since drive-ins contribute 25 per cent of movie income in the United States. The drive-in committee of the National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) took the mat- ter to the research centre of the Assocation of Motion Picture and Television Producers. TO BE TESTED The new screen, which took a year to develop, will be tested this summer at the Century Drive-in Theatre near the Los Angeles International Airport. Robert Selig, chairman of NATOs drive-in committee, ex- plained: "Dr. Wilton Holm, director of the research centre, and chief scientist Petro Vlahos came up with the concept for a contain- ment screen made of nickel coated with chromium. The screen is made up of two-foot- square modules which are cast from dies by an electroforming process. "The casting creates a series of lenticulations or bumps which control and turn the image in- ward. From outside the theatre, the screen will look black." The new screen was devel- oped with loaned by drive-in owners and is esti- mated to cost between and plus installation. "That's Selig ad- mitted. "But when you put that expense against the endless legal costs of fighting legisla- tion, it's not bad." Show faces catastrophe MONTREAL (CP) The or- ganizer of an international envi- ronmental festival here says the festival is headed for "catast- rophe" because the Ontario government has not come through with promised financial assistance.

'.'If we don't have it, it's going to be a big catastrophe." Mr. Huot said the federal gov- ernment has contributed 600, the Quebec government and industry, on which the organizers had counted heavily, has given little more than so far. The budget was originally but it has been reduced to the "emergency level" of Mr. Huot said. And the festival, called the first Inter- national Film Festival on the Human Environment, is short of that figure by The testival approached 108 companies, most in the Mon- treal and Toronto areas, but only seven have contributed. Mr. Huot said he hopes indus- trial contributions will continue to come in before the festival ends Sunday. The festival includes 130 films chosen from close to 400 sub- mitted from around the world. Mr. Huot said the organizers had counted on money from in- dustry to advertise. "Instead, we've been able to do almost no advertising at all and it shows in the attendance."

JULIE ANDREWS Julie plans to live in England LONDON (Reuter) Singer Julie Andrews, who has spent most of the last 10 years in the United States, said yesterday she intends to make her per- manent home in England. The 37-year-old star revealed her plan when collecting her Emmy award for the television series The Julie Andrews Hour. The British-born singer said she and her second husband, American film producer Blake Edwards, are looking for suit- able schools in this country for her children. "My husband gave me a taste of American life and now it is up to me to show him what England has to offer." she told reporters. "We want to live here permanently although we will keep our home in Switzer- land as well." She is renting a house in Lon- don while filming on location Eor a television spy thriller The Tamarind Seed, with Omar Sha- rif. After that she is due to go to Paris to make a film before returning to England. MILAN, Italy (AP) The Italian press, movie directors and writers have sharply criti- cized an appeals court decision declaring the film Last Tango in Paris obscene and sentencing its stars, director and producer to two months in jail. Following the decision Mon- day in Bologna, the movie was banned throughout the country. The film's director, Bernardo Bertolucci, said the court deci- sion was "a Fascist and reac- tionary action.'' Bertolucci also announced :hat he and the producer, Al- berto Grimaldihave appealed Jie sentence to the court of cas- ation, Italy's highest court. The court stayed the sen- tences pending appeals. The stars of the movie, Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider, did not attend the trial.

GAMES: Television game shows range from the unabash- ed greed of Beat The Clock to the classy Password and Jeop- ardy. Their hosts are similarly disparate. Consider the hysteri- cal Gent Wood with old pro Allen Ludden. Two new entries to the lists, one a big budget American production, the other a more humble Canadian offer- ing are good additions to the genre. The Pyramid is a polished package with celeb- rity guest working with contest- ants to crack the b'g prize. It's a toughie calling for quick thinking that offers a challenge to the viewer. Host Dick Clark keeps things moving smoothly and the calibre of stars is simi- lar to that found on Password, more concerned with the game than promoting their latest rec- ord movie. CTV's Eye Bet, seen at noon here, offers little finan- cial reward but lots of movie Waiting game in Poland WARSAW (AP) Shopping or dining out in Poland re- quires a lot of time, patience and a dash of ingenuity. In most major Polish cities, women average about three hours just waiting in lines to buy their food. Getting a table in some state restaurants can take up to 40 minutes. The main problems are a shortage of shops and a lim- ited labor force and Polish citizens have developed a sys- tem to cut down on waiting tame. It's called changing lines. Picture this typical shop- ping scene: The long line at the bread Free on bail Former major league baseball player Jerry Pnd- dy was free on bail in Los Angeles after declaring through his lavryer that he is not responsible for at- tempts to extort from a ship company by allegedly placing bombs aboard one of its luxury liners. counter in one of Warsaw's major food stores is making its usual snail-paced progress. A mother half-way up the line, turns to the man behind her and asks: "Will you keep my place I'm going to queue up for meat across the room. It's shorter there. I'll be back be- fore you reach the counter." The man agrees, but a few minutes later he turns to the woman behind him and makes a similar request. In a flash he's off to a third line. When the speed of the lines is misjudged, positions are lost. People try to claim their places anyway, and others ac- cuse them of butting ahead. However, shoppers who have the .line-switching system down to a fine art claim they can get positions in four lines at the same time. buff-oonery. Clips are mainly garnered from low-budget Ital- ian movies and the cut-ups can be hilarious. Best thing Eye Bet has going for it is host Jim Perrry.
