Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Delay seen in highly-touted Fall shows Writers' strike worries TV brass By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD The lights ire burning late in the offices e aired, otherwise the public will be forced to do something drastic, like talk to each other. And there's no profit for the networks in human conversa- tion. So the network executives are even now considering al- ternatives. With a little imagin- ation and ingenuity, they can come up with some acceptable substitute programs. You might be interested in some possibil- ities for fall viewing: THE MARCEL MARCEAU HOUR, 60 minutes of pantom- ime. This is such a natural that all three networks are bidding for the services of the great mime, who could be the "73-'74 PROGRAM IS INTERRUPTED INDEFINITELY DUE TO DIFFICULTIES WITH WRITERS season's answer to Mike Con- nors. THE DENNIS THE MEN- ACE FESTIVAL. Re-runs, you see, can be used, and there are certain to be many hours of your old favorites back again. Besides Dennis the Menace, you'll be able to renew acquaint- ances with some other delights from the past OZZIE AND HARRIET, SUGARFOOT, RICHARD DIAMOND and all those grand old timers. NASTURTIUMS I HAVE KNOWN is sure to make the top next fall, assuming that the networks can find a botanist who can ad lib. Ad libbing you see, is O.K. anything is O.K. as long as there's no script, or written anything. DEAN MARTIN PRESENTS GLEN CAMPBELL PRESENT- ING BOBBY DARIN PRE- SENTING THE ROLLER DER- BY is a sure winner. In fact, you can make a bet now Roller Derby queen will win an Emmy. They were all set to sign a deal for AN HOUR WITH THE WORLD'S BEST WRESTLERS, but they had to cancel it they found out wrestlers worked from scripts. Otherwise, though, sports will be big. The networks are even now considering televising oth- er sports events, and we are certain to see the INTERNA- TIONAL QUOTT CHAMPION- SHIPS, THE NATIONAL AAU FIELD HOCKEY FINALS and THE WORLD'S BEST CURL- ERS. Music shows will proliferate, as long as the MCs can ad lib don't need scripts. I under- stand ABC has plans for THE BOBBY BREEN HOUR, CBS is working up THE MRS. MILLER SHOW and NBC is all set for SIXTY MINUTES WITH JAMES McCORD, WHO ALWAYS SINGS. Some of last season's hits will be back. ALL IN THE FAMILY doesn't need a script they can just yell at each other. THE WALTONS will return, with 60 minutes of crying. THE MOD SQUAD can chase each other, without a script. And Dean Martin can ogle as well as ad lib as any other way- So, despite the strike, it looks like another banner year for television. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Star for 25 years has pleii ty lo tell Doris plans autobiography By VERNON SCOTT HOLLYWOOD Doris Day, at liberty from her cancelled television show this fall, will begin writing her autobio- graphy. But what can a movie star write about that hasn't been poured into a book a hundred times before? A great deal, if Doris choos- es to write the truth. For more than a decade she was among the top 10 box- office attract ions. From 1960- 64 she was No. 1 in populari- ty, surpassing such as Cary Grant, Elizabeth Taylor, John Wayne and Elvis Presley. At one time she sold more records than any other singer. She was also nominated for an Academy Award in Pillow Talk. "I don't think those things are very important'', she said. "I'm happy that people enjoy- ed my work and that I was a MORTGAGE, MONEY AVAILABLE!

Peo- ple began to think of me La the same terms off-screen. "At one time, that may have been a desirable image, I don't know. But I never did anything to encourage that reputation. It still persists today, and I've got a grown son." Doris could write about her only child, Terry, 29. How she tried to shield him from the limelight. How the Manson family had originally intended Terry and his friends to be murder victims. She could also describe the tragedy of husband Marty Melcher'a death in 1968 and the subsequent financial and legal problems which assailed her. Doubtless she could provide good reading alwut her co- stars, who included Clark Gable, Ronald Reagan, Rock Hudson, Frank S i n a tr a, Jimmy Cagney, James Stew- art and Richard Widmark. Perhaps the most remark- able element of Doris' career is its long span. Her first movie, Romance on the High Seas, was released in 1940. Combining motion pictures and television, Doris has been a star for 25 years. A major star. Her contemporaries were Betty Grable, Susan Hayward and Esther Williams. And Doris still is on the sunny side of 50. NORMAN J.
