Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Margot Kidder would like to buy Canadian ranch Canadian actress has hit on her hands By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD Funny thing about movies. Actors search for The Right Script and insist on The Best Director and then the picture bombs. On the other hand, they sometimes do a litUe something just for the money and find themselves with a hit on their hands. That's what's happened to Margot Kidder. Since she came down from Canada, she's been CTV to telecast All-star football game on June 27 The 1973 CFL All Star Game between the champion Hamil- ton Tiger Cats and the best of the rest of eight teams in the Canadian Football League tele- casts Wednesday, June 27, on the CTV Television Network from Ivor Wynne stadium in Hamilton. This is the fourth annual in the modern version of the dream g a m e in Canada with the sensational Chuck Ealey, rookie of the year in the CFL last year, quarterbacking the Tiger-Cats along with Schenley Award winner, George Henley, leading the defense, against the best four players from each of the other eight teams. The All Stars will have such offensive talent to call upon as, quarterbacks Ron Lancaster and Don Jonas, running backs Mack Herron, George Reed, Ike Brown and flanker Gerry Shaw. Add this list to outstanding receivers such as Jim Young and Peter Dalla Riva and the All Stars should be in a good position to make up for the last minute heartbreaking 23-22 loss to the Calgary Stampeders in the third annual game, last year in McMahon Stadium. The All Stars will be coach- ed by John Payne, the new head coach of the Saskatch- ewan Roughriders, who took over for the departed Dave Skrein, who led Saskatchewan to the final last year. Jerry WiDiams, who coached record setting teams in Cal- gary before coaching Philadel- phia of the NFL and then tak- ing the Tiger-Cats to the Grey Cup championship in his first year, will handle the Cats in this all star battle. The telecast on CTV, will fea- ture the special half-time show from the field, reminiscent of the outstanding half-time show presented during the Grey Cup game last year, that set a stan- dard that will be hard to top. ABC Wide World of Sports will expand to twice weekly n nothing but Pops movies like "Gaily, Gaily" and 'Ouackser Fortune Has a Cou- sin In the Bronx" and TV shows like James Garner's Ni- chols. Then, just because she was in Jove with the guy, she did "Sisters" for young director Brian DePalma. It turned out to be her first hit. "It's nice to be in a she says, "but it didn't start out :hat way. The script wasn't so not but the idea was all i n Brian's head. When we shot it, ,t was all very confusing. It never seemed like it was going to be much." But it was fun to do, she says, because she was wiih friends. At the time, she and Brian were living toge'her that's over and also in the cast was Jennifer Salt, one of her best friends. To make it all sweeter, Mar- got has a piece of the picture. Since it's a big hit she may ultimately make a large hunk of money. "If I males a fortune, which I she says, "I'd like to buy a ranch in British Col- umbia. I'm still nationalistic about Canada, as far as buy- ing land is concerned." She has a brother who is a working cowboy in Brilish Columbia. There were five children in the Kidder family and theirs was an unusual childhood. They grew up all over Can- ada, as their father, a mining engineer, moved around. She says he was more of an ad- venturer, hated working for big companies. He'd quit and move on and they moved with him. "It was a good she says, "because it taught me to be adaptable and [hat's very good for an actress.

My mother de- cided I had to get out so they went into debt to send me to a fancy boarding school in To- ronto. 'Then I'd come home on va- cations and get into knife fights in town the English kids against the French kids. It was interesting." Even though she was always something of a tomboy the idea of play-acting was always there. She says she often sat by the window and pretended she was frail and sickly. It WES the start of her acting car- eer. She's very honest about what acting means to her. She says she enjoys the act of act- ing but likes the life style the acting profession gives her even mere. that Hitchcockian scary film, could give her a double dose of that life style.
