Bochner runs into snags in Alberta movie idea HOLLYWOOD (CP) Lloyd Bochner, if you count the years from his first ap- pearance on CBC Radio, has been an actor for almost 40 years, and now he'd like to produce a film in Canada. He has the story and the lo- cale lined up. He thought he had the finances arranged. But he has run into snags OR both sides of the border that make it difficult for him to proceed. Without giving any secrets away, Bochner talked about his film idea over lunch on the terrace of FrascaW's Res- taurant on Sunset Boulevard. It would be shot in the moun- tains of Alberta and British Columbia, an outdors drama. But a recent Canadian gov- ernment tax ruling, coupled with labor-union agitation here, now makes it diffcult for him to proceed. Bochner made his radio net- work debut at the age of 11 in Toronto and before and after a stint in the Royal Canadian Navy and at the University of Toronto, where he graduated in sociology, he was a busy actor. Orchestra holds head high OTTAWA (CP) The Na- tional Arts Centre orchestra's successful European tour shows it can hold its place among the best in the world, conductor Mario Bernardi said on the or- chestra's return to the capital. It arrived from a five-week, five-nation tour during which it won plaudits in Warsaw, Lenin- grad, Moscow, London, Paris and Rome. While the orchestra has trav- elled widely in Canada, playing 55 cities from coast to coast in its four years' existence, the importance of the international tour is the self-confidence it gave the players, Mr. Bernardi said in an interview. He formed the orchestra in 1969 when he came to the arts centre from the Sadlers Wells Opera in London, where he was musical director. Bom in Kirk- land Lake, Ont., and now 42, Mr. Bernardi received his early musical training in Italy. The tour was doubtless highly successful, he said. STARTED COLDLY "The most immediate success was probably in Moscow. The most challenging success was in Leningrad, where the audience started out rather coldly and where we really won them over to us by the second night. "We also had a great success in Rome, too." There were many incidents along the way that were mov- ing, he added. A young Russian who missed part of the concert in Tallin went to Riga to hear the half he couldn't hear in his home town. "He went home by bus be- cause he had to go to school the next day, and that was a six-or seven-hour trip." The orchestra played two con- certs in both Leningrad and Warsaw. Mr. Bernardi said he had been told that if the first wasn't a success, the hall would be half empty for the second. But in both cases, the orchestra had capacity audiences for the second concerts. i "In Poland, there were a dozen or more sitting on the floor and in the aisles because ever seat was taken." He said he was proud of the way the orchestra played, sometimes under trying circum- stances after travelling all night by train, or in as soaring Bath were not designed for concert music. It was the first Canadian or- chestra ever to play in Warsaw, and the first foreign orchestra ever to open the Versailles Fes- tival near Paris, he added. A highlight of the tour was play ing Prokofievs classical Sym phony in the hall in Leningrac in which it had its "premiere in 1919, and in Moscow where Pro- kofiev's widow attended tb concert. A list of the shows he has been in reads like a catalogue of the dramatic arts in ada and the U.S., in radio, tel- evision and on the stage: the Stratford, Ont., Shakespear- ean Festival, G.M. Presents, Kraft Theatre, Studio One, Bonanza, Hawai Five-0, the Richard Boone Repertory Theatre, Sunday at Nine. He usually plays the "heavy." He proudly calls himself a professional Canadian here and is generally acknowl- edged as the leader of the Ca- nadian community in wood, though that community is only a loosely knit group. Many Canadians come here and immediately merge into the great melting pot. But it galls Bochner a bit to find now, when he has a good idea for a film about Canada to be made in Canada, new dificulties have been thrown in his way. The chief dificulty is a rul- ing by the national revenue department in Ottawa chang- ing the way in which movie- makers have been able to write off part of their expen- ses against revenue for tax purposes. These capital-cost allow- ances have been perhaps too generous, in the reviews Novelist, actress argue f over pornography, sex LOS ANGELES (Reuter) Henry Miller, father of the modern erotic novel, says "j'niography is killing sex." Miller, 81-year-old author oi the novels Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, told a news conference at the Ameri- Film festival dates booked OTTAWA (CP) A two-week festival of Canadian and for- edgn films will be presented by the Canadian Film Institute at the National Arts Centre here this fall.

But 21-year-old actress Linda Lovelace, the star of the por nographic movie Deep Throat took issue with Miller at a later news conference. "I think sex was daad and films like Deep Throat are bringing it back to she said. Miller announced he is about to publish a new book called In- somnia, or the Devil at Large which describes his infatuation with a young Oriental girl he married recently. "I think the sexual element is only part of he said. "It's an important part but it fsn' the whole thing. Today it's in everything." He added: "I prefer obscenity to pornography. "Pornography is sly but ob- scenity is forthright. The other seems a bit dirty to me." "What I like best is erotic lit- erature. Erotic literature unti now has used good language. It titillates because it doesn't use bad words." Groom charged with kidnapping SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (Reuter) A 20-year-old mar on his honeymoon was charged Monday with kidnapping and raping a hitch-hiking woman after leaving his bride asleep in their motel room.

Wheat-growing region faces drought PEKING (Reuter) The im- portant wheat-growing area of northern China, faced with a drought for the second year running, has made major efforts to increase its water supplies, the New China news agency reported today. The agency said a record number of wells were sunk in the area between last October and April. There have been increasing reports that the northern region could be in for a lean year be- cause of lack of rain following ast year's worst in decades. Fears of drought have been impressed by several Chinese eaders to visiting foreign dele- gations recently, informed :ources said. DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A. HOSACK Certified Dental Mtohcnli 5th St. S. Ph. 327-7244 Uthbridft government's opinioo. The ruling severely restricts the write-offs. This has hurt the movie-pro- duction industry in Canada and the government says it is having another look at the rul- ing. A modification may be made. Bochner says the ruling penalizes people who want to make films in Canada. It now would be easier for him to make his film in Idaho or Washington state. But, being a professional Canadian in Hollywood, as he says, he really doesn't want to do that. LLOYD BOCHNER green acres drive-in Mwer Mtprtt Or. Coutt.
