Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Saturday, Juns 2? 5974 Actor, Soviet government partners in TV program LOS ANGELES (AP) Actor Chuck Connors and the Soviet government are partners in a one hour television documentary made in the Soviet Union last winter. "We expect to take that documentary and sell it in a capitalistic Connors said Wednesday. He said he and his producer, Larry Stewart, will get 70 per cent of the profit of Peace and Friendship and the Soviets will receive 30 per cent. Connors made the documentary with an all Soviet crew after being invited to the Soviet Union by Communist party Leader Leonid Brezhnev. The two met in May. 1973, at a San Clemente party for the Soviet leader by President Nixon. JAZZ FESTIVAL NEW YORK (AP) The Newport Jazz Festival, which hasn't been in Newport since 1971, started its third season in New York City today with something for everyone except lovers of the outdoors. The festival, which moved to New York when Newport, R.I., said "enough" to crowd disturbances, for the last two years has sprawled over the metropolitan area, with concerts in Central Park, Shea Stadium and other under the sky arenas. This year, however, almost all festival events will be CHUCK CONNORS indoors in midtown Manhattan. Festival goers will be able to hear jazz of just about every style and every era, from the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to the experimental jazz of Milford Graves and Teo Macero Cotton. STAGE PROTEST LONDON (AP) Jewish demonstrators released white mice in the audience and bombarded the stage with broken glass and leaflets last night during a performance of Spartacus by the Soviet Bolshoi ballet. Police grabbled with the demonstrators who shouted "Free Soviet Officers dragged three persons from the London Coliseum theatre but Scotland Yard said there were no arrests. Collector of old movies also has home theatre I run a very simple business. Do you know who I am? WOODSTOCK, Ont. (CP) Most people go to the local theatre to see movies but a Woodstock man steps into his basement, chooses one of 360 motion pictures and flicks on his projector. James Smith has collected movies for more than 30 years and uses his basement to store, repair and show them. Mr. Smith's collection, valued between and includes authentic versions of the Battle of Britain, The Flight for Liberty and The True Glory which depicts the Allied march to Renovating? Kitchen and Bathrooms THE NOOK Westminster Plaza Phone 329-0700 victory in the Second World War. Mr. Smith has comedy films such as McHale's Navy and Charlie Chase and westerns with Gene Autry and John Wayne. He also has 20 full- length color feature films including The Untamed World and Reap the Wild Wind. Mr. Smith said he is not out to make money from his collection it's a hobby. "I've been collecting the shows and movies since I was a kid. It's really no different than collecting stamps or coins." He shows the movie for company and for the occasional benefit. "Sometimes I end up showing the same movie that the late show has on." The lack of newer movies in Mr. Smith's collection is explained by his belief that "pictures made years ago were better, especially the acting." "In the old days youngsters were sent to school and came out trained actresses and actors.

It was Jean Gascon's last production as artistic director of the festival, a post he gives over this summer after seven years to Robin Phillips, young English director who intends to pump new life into the Stratford theatre scene. Life has been by no means lacking under Mr. Gascon's direction, and it bubbled to new vigor in Stratford's Avon Theatre with the 19th-century French operetta. Apart from Offenbach's toe- tapping music, Mr. Gascon brought to the production characteristics of the City of Light known to everyone, if only by reputation. The sets by Robert Prevost of Montreal ranged from the Gare de 1'Ouest, complete with steam-puffing train, to the wine velvet Peacock Alley of the Grande Hotel.

The story line of La Vie Parisienne doesn't matter much, a tale about a Swedish baron who comes to Paris with his wife, wanting to see the city's night life rather than its cultural offerings. It's the music, dancing and comedy that draws people to French operettas. Douglas Campbell plays the baron with just a touch of pomposity but with much more devilishness on his mind. Mr. Creley plays four different roles, each seemingly suited to his special brand of nificent facial expressions and comic timing. But cast and story aside, the fun of this production was in Mr. Gascon's direction. So many comic routines were piled on each other that the audience was left chuckling throughout. When the baron begins to get tipsy at a party and sings about his head beginning to turn, even the chandeliers spin, and finally the whole dinner party revolves on a stage turn-table- It is six years since Stratford has mounted a full opera or operetta in the Avon Theatre, but this year it has decided to let the one work run through the full summer season, with Sunday performances to attract the tourist trade. TORONTO (CP) Curtis Jonnie is a man caught be- tween two cultures. Better known in music cir- cles as Shingoose, Curtis is a Canadian Indian who has spent most of his life in a white man's world. Since leaving the reserve at Roseau 40 miles south- west of age four, Shingoose has been in- volved in one form or another with music. For 20-odd years he has drifted through North Ameri- can cities looking for roots but finding relatively little to tie him recently. Within the last few years, au- diences have begun to take an interest in his work. name itself is the clan name of several hundred western been on the receiving end of racial prejudice and mentions that in a white society he has had a lonely life. But he does not dwell on it. The music that he writes and performs, contemporary narrative Indian folk with a hint of traditional chant, is In- dian-oriented but does not spit controversial fire against the centuries-old inhumanity of whites to the Indian. GAVE UP BITTERNESS Shingoose said in an inter- view that his music used to be bitter. "I would sing songs like: 'Red man, white man's time is and point fingers. I got out of that and started making my music a personal experience." Indian folk music has not really been developed in the Canadian recording industry and it generates curiosity among industry personnel. Shingoose's own product is scheduled to be recorded in July at Toronto studios with an album slated for Septem- ber release. Second guitar tracks will be played by recording artist Bruce Cock- burn. The album will not be cyni- cal in nature, Shingoose said, but rather "very controlled, very light but with a lot of truth." It will carry a mes- sage with a "positive image of what Indian people are" really all about." "I want to destroy the myths of what 'Indian' is. We don't put any emphasis on na- tionality or our pious beliefs, it's just there." When the occupation of Wounded Knee, S.D., by mili- tant Indians occurred last summer, Shingoose wrote a song about it. The com- position was heard by Johnny Yesno, at that time host of the national CBC radio program Our Native Land. Yesno had the singer perform the work on his show the following week. Response was en- thusiastic. More recently, Shingoose appeared in a seven-minute sequence of a television docu- mentary on the controversial James Bay hydro project. The documentary was first shown last November and rebroadcast several weeks ago. His musical background started when a missionary heard him singing and de- cided to use his voice for hymns during her prayer services on the reserves. Shi- ngoose was four years old at the time. ABANDONED BY MOTHER He was abandoned by his mother, who left the reserve to marry a white American, and the youngster became a ward of the missionary, then the Children's Aid Society and finally of the famous Boys' Town in Nebraska. Shingoose received exten- sive musical training while in the care of the missionary, and it continued in Boys' Town's concert choir which toured the United States and played syndicated network TV shows. He also formed the in- stitution's first rock band in 1964. Later there were other groups, cities and club dates. In Washington, D.C., the ac- claimed rock guitarist Roy Buchanan heard Shingoose's bass work and asked the In- dian to join his own group. CURTIS JONNIE Shingoose now works, be- tween club dates, at the In- dian Centre of Toronto as a social field worker. He said Indians are looking for lead: ership, someone who has the ability to work for their inter- est. He sees his role as in- fluenced by destiny. "There are maybe a thou- sand Indians on my reserve. I often wonder how it was that I got picked to receive the education and experience if it wasn't for some kind of energy pushing me in a cer- tain direction. "As I grew older I became interested in the new Indian intellectual. I began to realize I could play a very important role in being spokesman for both Indian people and white people. "I'm right in the middle of both cultures, I understand both. I'm directing my music toward both." Funtours 4 days World's Fair KING OF THE TREES The gorilla is the largest ape in the world.
