Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, June 21, 1974 THE LETKBRIDGE HERALD Joan Water field Goldie Hawn shows talent in latest movie Goldie Hawn is a unique talent and true heir to Judy Holliday, with the same enchanting mix of innocence and shrewdness found in the late Miss Holliday's characterizations. They yet have to find a Born Yesterday, Phfft or Solid Gold Cadillac for Goldie, but The Sugarland Express goes a fair way to giving her showcase material. "Express" races through crash-bang comedy as Goldie persuades her husband to bust out of jail and get on a mad ride to Sugarland, Texas, to recover their soon-to-be- adopted baby. Enroute a highway patrolman (Michael Sacks) is I run a very simple business. Do you know who I am? picked up and the three are pursued by police captain Ben Johnson, a kindly man who has a hard time riding herd on his trigger-happy posse. Material for comedy? Yes indeed. In car chases that may be the final wrapup of the stock thrill initiated by Bullitt. In the deft eyeing of improbable yet appalling real people who link into the widely-puolicized glory ride; on TV reportage; of Goldie and her trading stamps. The cast, top and bottom, is first-rate. You'll dote on Goldie Hawn in a film that would have been impossible to make without her, William Atherton as the husband, weak but immensely likeable, and Michael Sacks, an actor to watch as the uptight young of- ficer who breaks through his mould to become warm and human. And did you ever see Ben Johnson put a foot wrong? Johnson has been around since early John Ford westerns, got Academy award recognition for his performance in The Last Picture Show, but this time he's even better. All this enthusiasm for a dandy movie that falls apart at the end in a tragic shoot-out a la Bonnie and Clyde. Admittedly the story is bas- ed on a true incident, but if ever a movie cried out to forget fact and heavy social commentary this one does. Enough is said and truthfully with the light but penetrating touch.

Tonight the curtain rises on the R. I. Baker school produc- tion of The Clown and His Cir- cus and at its fall the youngsters will say goodbye to their mentor Murray Robison. How fortunate these young people have been to be guided by the director of Coaldale Little Theatre. As with that group Murray has always resisted the "flash success" preferring to make for himself and those who work with him a place of discovery. It is typical of him that his delight in tonight's production is not in the play as it was originally written, but what his young players have found and created. It is also typical that this nationally recognized director should choose to give his assistance to the Playgoers' recent production of Breath of Spring by working backstage and in the lighting booth. Now at the close of his career as a teacher at Baker, let it be hoped that it will not be too long before audiences are given the delight of another Murray Robison production; and that young people will continue to be ex- posed to the Robison philosophy. It's a good and giving one. If you note some peculiar happenings these warm evenings in front of the Bowman Arts Centre be assured that it is only the Playgoers in rehearsal. The hilarity afflicting the cast is the product of the vehi- cle Priscilla Pringle's Predicament or All's Swell That Ends Swell. A melodrama written on waves of alliteration by Ed Bayly, it is to be staged out at the Ex- hibition Pavilion during Fair week. Travelling? Even the short distance to Calgary will be particularly rewarding with the Bolshoi Ballet at the Jubi- lee Auditorium July 8 and 9. The entire company of HO will travel west in chartered jet and bring with it a full compliment of scenery, costumes and other accessories. Twelve top stars, prima ballerinas and leading male dancers of the Bolshoi will be supported by the corps de ballet and a lull symphony orchestra recruited from Canada's leading symphony companies. A varied program will include Act Two from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, Walpurgis Night from Gounod's Faust, Act Two from Giselle and the Third Act from Don Quixote together with highlight selec- tions from ballets to the'music of Chopin, Glinka, Prokofiev, Gliere, Delibes and Gluck. Still in Calgary, Palisade Arts will present four com- edies at the Centennial Planetarium theatre, The series opens with Campbell Smith directing Who's Who by Waterhouse and Hale to be followed by Noel Coward's Private Lives (director Kenneth The Owl and the Pussy Cat (Harold Baldridge) and I Do, I Do (Michael Run starts July 3 at 8 p.m., more details available from Ken Dyba at 264-2030. Head north to Edmonton and you can take in part of the season of Alberta Barter Theatre which performs at the outdoor theatre located behind Corbett Hall. There are no fixed admis- sion charges and seats cannot be reserved in advance, the admission system is very simple; if you can't afford to pay, the box office will accept trade goods instead. The theatre finished its 1973 season with about a ton-and-a- half of cast-off clothing, so if you roll up to the theatre with that old pair of jeans you've been meaning to discard, ex- pect a starving artist routine from the students operating the front-of-house. Whatever, a buck-fifty will always get you in. And for stay-at-homes, This Country in The Morning offers the opportunity to hear an old friend.

Record 13.5 million eligible to vote OTTAWA (CP) A record 13.5 million voters will be eli- gible to cast ballots in the July 8 election, Chief Electoral Officer Jean-Marc Hamel says He based this on the 13.35 million names on the prelimi- nary voters list issued last week, and which is to be up- dated in the next week. The preliminary list's total is up about 255.000 from the official list for the Oct. 30, 1972 election. The figures were included in a welter of statistics released by the chief electoral officer.

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Screen Actors Guild in the United States is asking its 000 members for strike authorization. Ballots were sent out this week to learn whether guild members are willing to set a July 1 deadline for reaching a contract settlement without a strike. The AFL CIO union is ask- ing motion picture and televi- sion producers for a 25 per cent increase in basic minimum scales and a signifi- cant improvement in the way actors are paid for TV reruns. The guild is asking that ac- tors be paid 100 per cent of their original salary every time a television show is repeated on the three U.S. TV networks during prime time. At present, the first time a show is rerun, actors get 50 per cent of the minimum scale of a week plus-15 per cent of the money they earn above scale. The residuals decrease gradually with each further repetition. Spokesmen for the union and the Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers said Wednesday they are optimistic about reaching a settlement without a strike.
