Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 1, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Mirch 1, 1975 Analysts advise investors to avoid cable TV stocks By THE CANADIAN PRESS New federal policies proposed for the cable televi- sion industry have caused several analysts to recom- mend that shares of cable companies be avoided. The analysts say they are having a difficult time recov- ering from a sudden succes- sion of good and bad news for the industry. The Canadian Radio-Tele- vision Commission (CRTC) recently approved subscriber rate jncreases of up to 33 per cent for cable TV systems in the Toronto area. All four cable companies whose shares are traded operate systems in this area. But shortly after the ap- proval, the commission pub- lished a series of proposed new policies for the industry, requiring companies to spend 10 per cent, rather than the current average of three to four per cent, of gross revenues on local programm- ing and suggesting that their role in future pay TV ventures be severely limited. "It is up and down. You don't know where you one analyst said. The analysts said the actual effect of the new policies on company profits may not be that bad, but they said in- vestors are upset by what they see as a fundamentally negative attitude toward cable TV held by the CRTC.

"They are taking away any opportunity for glamor and growth and using cable as a source of funds for programming." Peter Legault, an analyst with MacDougall, MacDougall and MacTier Ltd. of Toronto, has calculated that the rate increases granted would add 16 cents a share to profit of Maclean- hunter Cable TV Ltd. of Toronto and the requirement to spend 10 per cent of gross revenue on programming would reduce profit by 27 cents. Mr. Legault said the net ef- fect on Premier Cablevision Ltd. of Vancouver would be a decline of about 20 cents a share, since the rate increase applied only to a small part of the company's cable systems. Canadian Cablesystems of Toronto comes out about even, he said but emphasized that the rate increases will become effective in March or April, but the programming spending requirement may not become effective until late this year. The commission will hold hearings on this and other pol- icy proposals starting April 6. After the hearings, there is usually a delay of several weeks before it announces decisions.

Yet Robert De Niro pulled it off, augmenting his reputa- tion as the most promising new actor in films. De Niro is the electric per- former who made strong im- pressions in two of 1973's most acclaimed least, Mean Streets and Bang the Drums Slowly. Francis Ford Coppola chose him to portray young Vito Corleone in The Godfather, Part II, an assignment that should have given De Niro pause on two counts: 1. He would be portraying the younger version of the character created unforget- tably by Brando in The God- father. 2. He would have to play nearly all of the role in Sici- lian, a dialect he didn't know. "It was an interesting prob- lem and something of a chal- lenge to me as an said De Niro. "I guess I should have been more cautious about it, but 1 thought it was worth a try." PHOTOGRAPHY "For that Personal Touch" 416-13lh St. N.

He was in New York for talks about future films, tak- ing a breather from the film he is making in Parma, Italy, 1900, directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, who made Last Tango in Paris. Another Brando connection, and there are more. De Niro's first acting teachers weie Stella Adler and Erwin Pisca- tor, who were also Brando's. There is no physical resem- blance. De Niro is skinny with a narrow face and floppy black hair parted in the middle. His thoughtful approach to a role is Brandovian, as he prov- ed in Godfather II. "I didn't want to do an imi- tation of Brando, yet I wanted to make it believable that the man I played could have de- veloped into the older Don he said "I met with Dick Smith (who created the Brando The slicked-down hair seemed natural; that was how they wore it in those days. "We decided to do a little with the cheeks', suggesting the padding that Brando used. I went to the same dentist and he fitted me with a dental piece to push the cheeks out a little. "I also used a suggestion of the hoarseness that Don Cor- leone had later. These (Mafia) guys seem to get hoarse as they grow older." Learning Sicilian was diffi- cult. He had picked up some Italian while playing a Mafia lieutenant in the 1971 movie The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight. "But Sicilian was something the actor said. "It is much more stac- cato, far less rhythmic than Neapolitan Italian. "I took my tape-recorder and talked to Sicilians in Cali- fornia and New York, and then I went to Sicily. "I even went to the town of Corleone. When I went into a bar, I was hesitant about men- tioning the picture because I didn't know what the reaction would be. "But they seemed to be proud of The Godfather and complained because it wasn't filmed there." De Niro, 31, is a native New Yorker who passed Up college in favor of acting school. Some years he spent as much time on unemployment com- pensation as he did on salary but he never thought of being anything but an actor. Like Brando, he never would work in television or summer stock. Women air views on touchy film New York Times Service NEW YORK-Gael Greene "loved" the movie. Mrs. Ring Lardner Jr. .considered it a "putdown of humanity in general." Betty Friedan call- ed it a "tip-off of the women's and then stomped out of the screening room. They were among the 100 women "opinionmakers" who gathered the other night, at the invitation of Eleanor Perry, the screenwriter, and her daughter, Ann Bayer, a writer, for what was billed as "an evening for wives and other women." The event. was a special screening of the controversial film. "The Stepford Wives." It was.followed by an "awareness session" in which the women were invited to air their feelings gripes, praise or otherwise about the film. "The Stepford which stars Katharine Ross and Paula Prentiss, is based on Ira Levin's novel about a group of suburban husbands who learn how to have the perfect wife: They kill their real wives and replace them jwith identical, lifelike automations who love cooking, housekeeping and the other traditional wifely roles, and abhor anything vaguely related to feminism. Because the film includes a consciousness-raising session, and frequent differences to the women's movement, "The Stepford Wives" is one of the first films to deal with feminism in any manner. Its reviews were mixed, and women critics generally liked it while men critics generally hated it. And so, Columbia Pictures asked Eleanor Perry, one of the film industry's more vociferous feminists she was also the screenwriter of "Diary Of A Mad Housewife" to host the screening in the hopes it would drum up interest among other women. "Finally, a movie that is not about two guys and their Miss Perry said before the screening began. "I wonder if film makers know they may be shutting off half their audience with that kind of film women who may not YAMAHA ORGANS I New and Used COLLEGE MALL Phone 328.3694 want to go to 'two guy1 pic- tures." And then the film began. And before it was over, the frequent hisses, groans and guffaws from the crowd in- dicated that perhaps Colum- bia had made a mistake if they thought these women opinionmakers would like "The Stepford Wives." "I think it's completely said Linda Arking, a writer who was the first to speak up in the "awareness session." "I couldn't believe the film, ft dumps on everyone women, men, suburbia, ft confirms every fear we've ever had about the battle of the sexes, and it says there is no way for people to get together and lead human Bridge results Wed.
