Next came Elvis on Tour, a study of Presley in motion Filmed at a cost of it is expected to gross between million and million. Let The Good Times Roll is the most ambitious project of Cinema Associates, a partner- ship of Abel and producer Pierre Abidge.

"We have television shots of all the major figures of the e r Truman, Stalin, Khrushchev, Richard Nixon in a priceless bit from the Checkers said Abel. "We also show kinescopes of television dancing cigarette boxes, Dinah Shore's kiss, Guy Madison shooting at the camera." All this is prime nostalgia for anyone over 35. But they rarely go to the movies; it's the 17-35 crowd that supports the film in- dustry. That doesn't worry Abel and Levin. "The younger crowd will find in the music the roots of what they enjoy Levin said.

"At least two U.S. entities will be buying services from Telesat until they have been able to establish their own sys- tems and so we have a signi- ficant export an export that was not envisaged at the time Telesat was 'conceived." Mr. Turta said the sale is significant because it does not involve "any disposition of non- j renewable resources and what! is most important is that it is completely secondary to our primary task of serving Can- ada."
