Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta ihurtday, June LETHBRIDGE Latest MGM film release nostalgia trip for patrons By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NBA) Thanks to MGM, a good many Americans are embarking on a nostalgia trip these days. They go to see the studio's current release, "That's a collection of numbers from some of the great MGM musicals. Sudden- ly they are whisked back to the '30s and '40s. curious thing is that it isn't only the audience that is having a case of the galloping memories. It's happening to a lot of the actors, too the people who were involved in those glorious musical films of that glorious era. VIEWED FILM June Allyson is one of those who is suffering from a bad bout with the past. June, who still looks great and is still un- der 100 pounds, saw the film in which she's very important and it brought back floods of old times. One of the snippets in the film has June dancing and singing to that great standard "Thou Swell." "I she says, "that we filmed that number right after I married Richard." Richard, of course, was Rickard Powell. Most people think of him as Dick Powell, but. to June, he always was and remains Richard. They were married 17 years when he died. "He was the greatest man I ever she says. "My se- cond marriage, -I wasn't so lucky." June spent 13 years at MGM They were good years LABOR CLUB Corner 2nd Ave. and 13th St. North WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT In The Clubrooms Thursday, June 20 "JERRY" June 21 and 22 "Linemen" Members and Invited Guests APPEARING NIGHTLY I N E R MARG OSBORNE 733-13th St. N.

She did everything from musicals to comedies to dramas. She remembers doing "Lit- tle Women" in '49 for director Mervyn LeRoy. Elizabeth Taylor was also in the cast. What sticks in June's mind mostly is one conversation with Liz. "She came over to me one June says, "and said how she wished she could trade faces with me. Her ex- act words were 'I'd give anything to look like you.' Coming from that exquisite face that was quite something." Her first film for MGM was "Best JFoot in which she recreated her Broadway role She remembers that, too, es- pecially her first few days on the Culver City lot. "I was brought out from New she says, "and tested and they signed me. Then they said I should go home and rest and they'd send a doctor over to see me. I said why, I don't need a doctor. And they said, 'What about your They were fooled, of course, by her naturally husky voice and tried, unsuccessfully, to change it. She says they also tried to change her smile "I closed my eyes when I smiled" but they couldn't change that, either. She says there was both good and bad in the old studio system. She liked the way the studios took performers and taught them "every day I learned She also liked the way they guided the careers of their contractees. "But they she says, "to make everyone conform to an ideal. I couldn't or wouldn't conform." She continued to be herself and she's still herself. Don't get the idea that June Allyson is living solely in the past. She's a very modern person and looks forward to a lot of acting yet to come. "I want to be she says. "But it's hard to find parts at my age. Please write me a television series that's what I want to do most now." I run a very simple business. Doyouknow who I am? June A Hyson memories, memories Room at top for for talent Broadway slogan proven NEW YORK (AP) Terrence McNally and Sammy Cahn are new witnesses to one of 'Broadway's most hallowed slogans. The one about room at the top for talent. In age and temperament it would be hard to find men less alike than the two who arrived comcidentally to critical cheers and salutary box of- fice activity. McNally, who looks like a slightly rakish cherub of 34, is the of Bad Habits, a comic caper which redeems a disaster a decade ago when his first play- flopped on Broadway Cahn, 60, resembling a weathered Shangri la lama, is writer and performer of Words and Music "My whole life is a fantastic Cahn said, describing his odyssey from the im- migrant slums of New York's old Lower East Side to become a Tin Pan Alley celebrity and winner of four Hollywood Oscars. "I never counted how many I then there also have been thousands of he said. Besides hits such as Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen, Three Coins in the Fountain, Love and Marriage and The Second Time Around, Sammy acknowledges his pre eminence in composing special material for such stars as Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. WRITES AUTOBIOGRAPHY Between catnaps that are the apparent source of his headlong ebullience "I have a marvellous ability to sleep just 15 minutes" Cahn has been writing an autobiography entitled I Only Know What I know. "I think it's going to be a rather lovely he said, "because every chapter starts with a fragment of one of my lyrics Less outgoing is McNally who embarked on his career of dramatist casually. He grew up in Corpus Christi, Tex where his father is a beer distributor, arrived at Columbia University deter- mined to become a journalist. He wrote a play, This Side of the Door, that earned a production in a New York drama workshop run by Richard Barr and Edward Albee. Later he was hired to tutor author John Steinbeck's two sons during a 13 month world cruise By 1965 he had completed an off beat script, And Things That Go Bump in the Night. -It was a hit at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, a dis- aster on Broadway Actress dies PARIS (Reuter) Pauline Carton. 89, French stage and screen acress. died here yesterday- She was best known for her comic roles in most of the films and plays written and directed by Sacha Guitry.

Missing, that is, at least un- til the first of an expected three million or more visitors this season arrive on the ex- position site on St Helen's Island in the St. Lawrence River, reached by bus and subway from downtown Montreal. Man And His World promoters say this year's ex- position promises to be bigger and better than last year's, and it will grow to a climax in 1976 when Montreal is host to the Olympic Games But still it is not up to the mark achieved in 1967, the Centennial of Confederation, when Expo 67 was a recogniz- ed international world's fair. There was a slump in activity in 1968, and many who return- ed that year were disap- pointed, but the show has been growing. This year, there are 13 pavillions sponsored by foreign governments the same as last year with In- dia and Haiti replacing dropouts Japan and Austria. The French, Russian and Chinese governments have major shows, but the U.S. and Britain still have not returned Entrance charges are the same as last year for a single day ticket to all the pavillions, or a ticket good for repeated visits until the show closes Sept. 2. college cinema NOW SHOWING AT P.M.
