Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, March 1, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Joan Waterfield Old movies still the best f It may be difficult to reconcile six Academy Award nominations with The Way We Were but there should be no doubt that audiences will eat up this romance of the forties. It's an answer, in part, to the cry. why don't they make movies the way they used and that's the rub. For The Way We Were is more just a movie-movie than any real depiction of what it was like thirty years ago. And if that seems confusing, just think back, all you old- time moviegoers to all those Bette Davis, Susan Hayward- Joan Crawford weepers. It's got the stars, Robert Redford and Barbra Streisand, a fine supporting cast including Viveca Lindfors who is just too good for this movie and all kinds of romantic tugs-of-war. Redford is the All-American golden boy, navy lieutenant turned screenwriter; Streisand up to her wedgies in protest marches. He's for status quo, she for social change. Into the stew is tossed the Hollywood blacklisting, all more bouquet garni than good solid meat and potatoes. And this -time director, Sidney Pollock who gave us the wonderfully evocative They Shoot Horses Don't They, is content to stay with his stars, front and centre. The time, the place and most of the people are way in the background as Streisand and Redford talk, talk, talk. Oh, how they talk, yet there's no real dimension to their characters. But they are so attractive, and Redford, particularly, proves that he is more than just a pretty boy, giving flesh to a role that is given the barest skeleton by the writer. And yet, this is all pretty carping from one who saw Now Voyageur eight times and loved every weepy moment. A movie-movie, but so what! Does every film have to have depth and significance. The heck with it go and enjoy. Last year The Harlequin Players of the Lethbridge Community College made their debut in the community with their production of You're a Good Man Charlie Brown. The players showed that they had a remarkable zest for and understanding of the Charles Schultz' cartoon characters. The colorful and simple sets intelligently left as much to the imagination as the live actors did in their portrayals. It was a delight and a triumph for director Betty Sorenson Now the group is back this coming week with a musical of rare warmth, The Fantasticks. No large chorus in this show, just a troupe of players and a lovely score. With happy memories of "Charlie it is fair to anticipate a show worthy of the definition of family entertainment.

Barry, son of Mrs. Ward Clark and the late Dr. Clark, and his wife were home for Christmas. He was born here, and educated here and at McGill and Harvard. He is best known as an artist and has been occupied for several years in tilm writing and production, latterly for the Disney company in Hollywood. He wrote next Sunday's show, Ringo the Refugee Racoon, nearly two years ago. More television. Commander Lloyd Bucher, a headline name once. How quickly we forget. But there's superb drama in Pueblo (Wednesday, Ch. 11) and the story of its skipper, sent on an1 ill-defined mission in an ill- equipped craft. History has and passed the whether Bucher should have surrendered his ship. Story concentrates on Bucher, his early life in orphanages, his surrogate home in the navy. It's all brilliantly interpreted by a fine cast led by Hal Holbrook, an actor of immense subtlety and force. And that cast, the writer and the director prove again that the perfect fusing of ail talents can produce superb television. A good viewing week on the whole The Grammy Awards Saturday (Ch.

TVs 'All in the Family' producer to leave show By JERRY BUCK LOS ANGELES (AP) This is the week John Rich packs it in and leaves All in the Family. Unless you watch the credits, you may not be familiar with the name. But Rich, with his 18-hour days, is as responsible as anyone for New Ontario television network ratings are low TORONTO (CP) -Thefirst ratings of the new Global Television Network, issued Wednesday by BBM Bureau of Measurement, show the network, whose coverage extends only over southern Ontario, so far has attracted a low percentage of viewers. But Al Bruner, network president, said higher ratings were "not expected so soon after, the network began operating. Global began telecasting Jan. 6. The bureau's ratings, con- ducted between Jan. 21 and Feb. 3, show Global got 2.5 per cent of the viewing audience in Toronto, but better in other centres. In Ottawa, it received 6.5 DANCE WHERE: Native Friendship Centre 324 4th St. S.

Global also has plans for television stations in Edmonton and Vancouver. Opera star does show minus tenor BOSTON (AP) Soprano Maria Callas has added Boston to a worldwide comeback tour, without a tenor. Miss Callas, 50, started her comeback in Europe last fall with tenor Giuseppe di Stefano, 52. But di Stefano had a cold Wednesday night and Miss Callas went on without him. A representative of the office of impresario Sol Hurok said di Stefano hopes to have recovered from his cold and be able to sing with Miss Callas Saturday in Chicago. She will appear at New York's Carnegie Hall next Tuesday. THIS WEEKEND at the LEGION SINCLAIR AND INVITKD QUESTS ONLY the success of this top-rated CBS comedy series which is also seen on the CBC network. He's produced or directed every show since its debut in January, 1970, most often doing both. In the beginning he directed -37 consecutive shows. He's also the host at the tapings, doing the audience warmup. Rich, 48, who says the job "turned my hair gray and put 20 pounds on leaves Tandem Productions at the end of-the week to set up his own production company. One of his many functions on All in the Family was to keep its comedy topical, despite the fact that the shows are taped six weeks before airing. "Topicality comes to you by reading the he said. "It's not by any magic or manipulation. We're just careful of what's in the newspapers. We have our people talking about what America's talking about." In a show taped last fall Ar- chie Bunker got locked in the cellar when he went down to check his empty oil tank. Rich said: "The original concept was that Edith failed to call the oil people. His line was to be 'Thank you, Edith.' In rehearsal I thought that was too much responsibility to put on Edith and changed it to 'Thank you, Arabs.'" The next day the Yom Kippur War broke out in the Middle East and by the time the show was on the air six weeks later the United States had a full-fledged energy crisis. Last summer, when the Wa- tergate hearings were under way. some people thought All in the Family was reshooting the reruns to include Watergate jokes. "Things were being said the winter before and we had included them." Rich said. "By summer everything was up to date." Earlier this year they taped a show in which Archie rushes to the hospital after eating some mushrooms he thinks are contaminated. The day of the taping stories began to break that the Food and Drug Administration was recalling cans of mushrooms. LUNCH HOUR SPECIAL! From Noon P.M.

While trade activity continued to favor the U.S. at the start of 1974, government experts predict the high cost of world petroleum will drive the country into a substantial trade deficit before the year is over. The country had a trade sur- plus of billion in 1973, the first surplus in three years. The cost of imported petro- leum products was up sharply in January, but the value of U.S. exports also increased substantially. The January trade surplus of million compared with a record surplus in December of million and was a big improvement over a monthly deficit in January 1973 of million.
