"The most enjoyable aspect o'f working with special said Gerry, "is the satisfaction of seeing the completed work fit smoothly into the rest of the production." Among his various pro- jects, Gerry has dealt with handling and filming a diamondback rattler, to be seen in one of the episodes (as well as other exotic the use of black powder, and explosions for fires and flintlock pistols and rifles. "It's particularly risky working with venomous snakes. All the scenes with the rattler were filmed un- der glass because of the toxicity of the commented Holmes. "Even after a snake like that has been milked of its venom there is enough retained in its system to seriously hurt someone, so we took many precautions. The first time I ever work- ed with snakes was in Morocco handling what is probably the most dangerous of all reptiles the Cobra, I'm happy to say nothing amiss happened but those things are as fascinating as they are frightening. CAUTIOUS "Safety is always my biggest said Gerry. "It doesn't matter Agent 99 doesn't miss grind of weekly series LOS ANGELES (AP) Barbara Feldon divides her time among her home, her boat, her studies, writing and television. Barbara, Agent 99 on Get Smart for five years, is hostess on Dean Martin's Comedy World, a Thursday night summer show on NBC. She taped her appearances in such places as London, San Francisco and Great Gorge, N.J. The show features comedy performers from around the country and in London. Since leaving Get Smart in 1970, Barbara has made numerous appearances on TV movies, specials and game shows. She says she doesn't miss the regu- larity of a series. "It's the best of all possible she said. "Consistency is not something I'm fond of. I love variety." It permits her to pursue a life-style suited to her interests. Last summer she bought a 43foot cabin cruiser, Ciopinno and took up navigation. That is in addition to her study of art and history. WROTE FOR DINAH She lives part of the time on the boat, anchored at Marina Del Rey. It is there that she does her writing. With actress Joan Darling, she "wrote for a Dinah Shore special and for the Public Broadcasting System. She said: "I thought, my profession is acting. Writing is fun. I write just for myself." Most of her work has been in comedy "It's my favorite" but Barbara doesn't consider herself a comedic actress. She said: "I began as a dramatic actress. The first thing I did was opposite George C. Scott in East Side, West Side. When Get. Smart came along I fell into that and I'm thought of as a comedic actress. "Dramatic acting can be great but you can't spend the whole day weeping in your bandages. Comedy has a pace and a style to it. You can improvise like musicians. I love the energy and vitality of it. what, kind of effect you're looking for; there is no room for misjudging. "For he con- tinued, "I handle all the shooting scenes with the old flintlocks, rifles and pistols and black powder. "This black powder is the basis for dynamite and for every shot explosion, or whatever, I always experi- ment elsewhere and take my calculations for application in the studio. When I tell a director what will result from this or that effect, he can expect exact- ly that. He'll know where flying rocks are going to fall; how much smoke to expect, and how effective an explosion will look. I'm working on the same floor where these effects are be- ing created for the camera and I can assure you there is a very small danger fac- tor involved." Holmes picked up most of his training in England handling effects and props, learning along the way. He worked mainly for feature movie presentations and television. Since coming to Canada he has been work- ing in television and was the property master for Paper Chase, a feature movie filmed in and around Toronto. No matter what the pro- ject is for the Gerry concluded, "I'm satisfied with it only after I've surmounted the problems thrown my way." Gallery films stars at their Just don't film the swimming pool. "It's too said Fred Astaire as he invited a CBC-TV Gallery cameraman to film everywhere else in his magnificent Beverly Hills home. It was movie great Astaire himself who answered the door and he couldn't have been more gracious or kind, said CBC- TV executive producer Sam Levene of the interview. The Fred Astaire interview at his home and other interviews of mostly old time Hollywood stars will make up one of the 13 half hour programs of Gallery to air on CBC-TV beginning in January, Levene has just returned to Toronto from the week's filming. Interviewer while in Hollywood was Richard Lamparski who wrote the books Whatever Became Of And instead of studio interviews the director Ene Riisna and her crew interviewed and filmed the stars in their own homes, homes own their own surroundings where possible.
