Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, LETHBRIDGE Returns after year layoff Actress finally lands role HOLLYWOOD (NEA) Carol Lynley is one of the most beautiful girls in Hollywood, maybe in the whole world, at least west of the Rockies. And yet she hasn't made a movie since she was in mortal jeopardy as part of that jolly crew aboard the SS Poseidon. Why not? "There just aren't any roles for Carol says. "I read every script there was last year and there were only two decent parts for girls 'Gatsby' and 'Day of the Locust.' I didn't get those so I didn't do anything." She took a year off. Mostly, she went to Ireland. Even though her real name is Jones, she's Irish a great- grandfather went from Wales to Ireland to build a quarry, which is still there. So she went back to Ireland, saw Pop group cancels tour LONDON (Reuter) The Jackson Five pop group has cancelled a planned tour of Britain for fear of a repeat of riotous scenes at a recent David Cassidy concert which resulted in the death of a 14- year-old girl. Promoter Danny O'Donovan. who arranged the tour, said the Jacksons are "extremely concerned and disturbed by" the tragedy at Cassidy's concert.

Most people think all Irishmen live in potato patches, but there are quite a few who have a good life." Now she's found a part she likes, in Menahem Golan's "The Four Deuces." What she likes about it is simple "I play a heroine and that's nice. "There aren't many parts for heroines any she says. "I play the richest, most beautiful, most intelligent girl in the world." What does she do to be heroic? "I'm rich, beautiful and she says. "Isn't that heroic She has a nude scene in the picture, but it won't be quite what it appears to be on the screen. "I'm not really nude at she says. "When they shot it, I wore bikini pants and pasties. big pasties. I won't do a totally nude scene at least, not in this picture. Maybe, if Zeffirelli asked me Carol, as one of the survivors of "The Poseidon has already agreed to do the sequel to it. This probably will shoot in the fall. She says she agreed on one condition that she can wear something other than the shorts she wore through the entire "Adventure" shooting.

Women film crews moving in HOLLYWOOD (NEA) The day may not be far off when a new movie opens carrying this ballyhoo line: "THE FIRST FILM MADE BY AN ALL-FEMALE CREW." More and more, women are infiltrating Hollywood studios. In years gone by, when you visited a Hollywood set the only ladies you saw were the script girl, the hairdresser and the wardrobe mistress. Today, there are women everywhere some even doing heavy physical things, such as manning the big lights and working as grips and carpenters. OUTNUMBERED They are still outnumbered, of course, but the change is startling. And Hollywood is actively looking for more feeling, as they did with blacks and Chicanes, that women are a minority and siiould be encouraged. But, as with those earlier minorities, the problem is to find qualified women. It isn't easy for anyone man or women to acquire the necessary qualifications in the more skilled film trades. You just can't walk in off the street and get hired as a film editor, for example, or a cameraman. So women who want to work in movies are finding it tough. But it can be done. "We had one girl who qual- says Bob Allen of Local 728, Studio Electrical Technicians. "And we had another who got right to the top and then her insides came apart and she quit. It's heavy work." "We'll hire any qualified person pink, yellow, black, blue, male, says Dan Slusser, of The 20th-century Fox personnel department. Then he goes on to explain about that key word, "qual- ified." "There's a certain amount of prerequisite knowledge needed. There are trades that require inherent knowledge. You can't become a cameraman overnight or a soundman or an editor. But there are other film trades laborers, grips, lighting which require no knowledge, but you have to be able to work long hours and suffer through less than desirable conditions." NO TRAINING For many of the crafts, no training is needed. A girl can pull lighting cables as well as a man if she has a certain amount of physical strength. The problem is that the unskilled trades require that physical strength, while the skilled trades require training.

Jerry Smith, of Local 659, International Photographers, sees more and more opportunities for women in the coming years. "There are limitations in our craft." he says, "regardless of sex. Some gals can handle it better than some guys. Once the gals get their time in and become qualified, they do a good job." Smith says he anticipated some trouble at first, when the first women reported to work on camera crews. But it didn't happen. "I thought our men would be like animals toward them" he says, "but they weren't. They like having girls The use of women in film starts at the top. With increasing frequency, women are producing films. "Claudine" has an. all-girl production staff. So does the new release, "Policewomen." Its producer is Marilyn Tenser, who did the earlier exploitational film, "Super Chick." "Times for a woman making says Miss Tenser, "are getting better and better. More women are getting into it all the time. There seems to be no handicap to being female actually, I've found that nobody cares if you're a guy or a gal or in-between." She says, however, that there were no women on the. crew of "Policewomen." She would have liked to have some "but I wanted the most capable people I could find, and I couldn't find any women who were qualified." She says she wouldn't hire a woman over a man, just because of sexual considerations. It just depends on the qualifications of the candidate, she says. While there are still few, if any, women directors, there are increasing numbers of women writers jn both movies and television. Ann Elder, who works mostly in TV, is bullish about the future for women writers. HOTTEST TIME "It's the hottest time lady writers have ever Miss Elder says. "This is a supreme time for girls to get into the business." She says she has only once been turned down for a job because of her sex. And, more often, she has been hired for the same reason. "Being a girl can work to your she says. "Being attractive doesn't hurt." Miss Elder is currently writing the next Lily Tomlin special and she says Miss Tomlin is all-out for the cause of women in entertainment. One of her co-producers, Jane Wagner, is a girl and there are others on the staff, although Miss Elder is the only writer among the eight doing the show. Women in film face the same problems which have hampered women in other fields the long hours mitigate against a woman combining housewifery with her career. In film, this situation is magnified because the hours are erratic at best. "A lot of girls don't want these erratic says Slusser of Fox. "The work is hard and the hours are long. If a TV show is up against a deadline, the crew has to work far into the night." SENIORITY POLICY It's also an industry where there is a strong seniority policy. The bottom of the ladder is rough. "The film Slusser says, "is great if you're at the top the pay is good, the conditions are good. But it's really tough at the bottom." limits to attend festival OTTAWA (CP) Two Inuit from Cape Dorset in the Northwest Territories will attend the World Animation Film Festival in Zagreb, Yugoslavia, June 10 to 15 as part of the Canadian delegation, the northern affairs department announced today.

Alien, of the Electricians' Union, says he is currently processing "15 or 20 applicants." If they pass, they'll have to begin as the lowest of the low. From there, they graduate to Group Three, and so on until they become Group One, the top of the heap. Many of the unions have apprenticeship programs which, while not designed specifically with women in mind, are being used to help women get started in the industry. Smith, of the Camera Union, says there is one woman currently attending his union's apprenticeship program. It isn't going to happen next week, but someday there will be as many women as men working on film crews.
