Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Page S Monday, June 17 CORA GREY A portrait of faith and family Cora Gray is a remarkable woman who has raised 13 children in Windsor, Nova Scotia, Two of her sons went into the ring; Stuart, died at (he height of his promise as a boxer, and Clyde fights on, gaining fame and fortune. Cora Gray's story, one of devoul faith, courage and daily hard work and adversity, is the subject of The Grays of Nova Scotia. It is a moving film portrait by renowned film maker Don Shebib and it will be telecast on the CBC-TV series Of All People, Monday at 10 p.m. Of All People, produced by Ross McLean, is the kind of TV that moves critics to applaud, To quote a Toronto Star story on last year's series: "It's all about what the TV m e d i u m should occasionally be, but seldom is: Real people talking about themselves, their dreams, their realities, their thinking, their feeling." Don Shebib accomplishes this essence in his film of Cora Gray, One of Canada's most outstanding m a j o r directors, Shebib received the best feature film award for Goin' Down the Road in the 1970 Canadian Film Awards.

Cora Gray's faith and courage unfold in gramc after frame. She speaks of how, with one son dead, she'd like to see her son Clyde stop fighting. Clyde is currently C o m m o n w e a 11 h an d Canadian welter'- weight boxing champion. He is also earning money, perhaps beyond all his youthful dreams while growing up in Nova Scotia. But Cora Gray is proud of him as she is proud of all her children. It isn't because of the money he makes, although she does recognize money is necessary to free one of debt and provide three meals a day. How does a woman bring up 13 children with no running water or labor saving appliances, on very little money scraped t o g e t h e r f r o m h e r husband's job and her own work as a charwoman? Somehow Cora Gray did, and somehow she retained (he calm and marvellous qualities of faith and compassion while doing so. She says. ''As a Christian, I could handle all the problems that came by praying and turning to the Bible. I've had a good life. We've been very poor as everyone knows. There'd be mornings when there was just enough breakfast for the children and none I' o r myself o r m y husband." One of the m o s t remarkable aspects of this remarkable woman, with all her hard ceaseless working, is how she finds the constant energy to encourage and support her family. The opening scene in the film is Cora recalling how one of her sons, skiing the local hill with only barrel slaves, outdistanced all Hie other skiers with their new skis. She is telling this story t o h e r y o u n g grandson and il sums up her philosophy, and her inspiration to those around her. And possibly to Ihose who will see her in The Grays of Nova Scotia on Of All'People. Monday. 10 p.m. on CBC-TV.
