sought for John Ware movie W.dnusdny, Jun. 28, 1972 THE IETHBR1DCE HCTALD _ 19 By GHEG Ml'INTYIlE Herald Siaff Writer Chief Mountain Studios Ltd., a Raymond-based film com- pany has launched a drive for to produce a movie about pioneer southern Alberta negro cowboy John Ware. Albertans arc being offered a chance to invest from S100 to each toward the film, said Duane Forsyth, president of Chief Mountain and produc- er of the proposed film. The script, to be written and directed by General Film Cor- poration of Las Vegas, Nev. is based on Albert a Lieuten ant- Governor Grant MacEwan's book "John Ware's Cow Coun- try." Mr. Forsylh, z school teach- er at Raymond, 20 miles south of Lelhbridge, said in an inter- view he hopes filming will start this fall ant) the movie will be ready for international distri- bution by mid-1973. Outdoor footage is to be shot at High River, Alia., where John Ware came in 1882 from South Carolina where he was born a slave in 1845. He moved on to the Duchess area, norlh of Hrooks to set up a large ranch. Ware became renowned for his character and ranching abilities. His cabin has been preserved as part of Dinosaur Provincial Park. Mr. Forsylh said Ware's daughter Nettie, who lives at Vulcan, is one of the principles in Chief Mountain Studios and I.t.-Gov. MacEwan is enthusias- tic about the possibility the story of Ware will become a movie. A trust fund has been opened at Royal Trust Co. in Leth- Ijridgc, said Mr. Forsyth to ac- cept investment in the film. Eighty-five per cent of invest- ment money collected will be kept in the fund and 15 per cent will be spent CM preliminary operating costs. The CTV television network has expressed interest in taking over the film if Chief Mounlain is unable to raise sufficient money by Sept. 30, he said. Two prominent negro actors, Greg Morris of the television series Mission Impossible and Woody Strode, former Calgary Stampeders all-star football player, have been approached to play the role of Ware, said the producer. Lome Green of Bonanza and Wally Cox of movie and tele- vision fame have also been ap- proached U> be in the cast. None have yet confirmed, how- ever, he said.
