And Steve McQueen. And McQueen has charisma. He is one of the few (Paul Newman is another) in the era of the non-actor who has that genuine toe-curling, knock-'em-in the-aisles, star-quality that is a legacy from the golden days of Hollywood. It's a bonus that he is also very good at his trade. Here^he amd Ali MacGraw make their debut as a twosome that has box-office-rocking potential. For that reason alone The Getaway is worth seeing. The vehicle, as a launching pad to this is, a slam-bang chase with McQueen and MacGraw lugging around $500,000 in loot, on the lam from both sides of the law. It's an entertaining movie, thanks to its cast, overloaded at times with heavy symbolism, and too often plainly disgusting. So see it then if you will, for the best of reasons ... for its verve not its nerve. * * * OSCAR: This is the 45th year of the great Hollywood production colony awards.

MEMBERS AND GUESTS ond look at one of the top con-| tenders, Cabaret, .and first screenings are scheduled in the near future for others, notably the Poseidon Adventure. There are no special effects nominations this year, visual or sound, which may be puzzling in that the very special appeal of the Poseidon Adventure, now breaking box office records everywhere, is in this particular category. It's about time, too, that an award for stuntman of the year was offered.' With the increase of film violence, the return of the classic chase scene, and so many movies beefed up by the sheer excitement of stunt action, some recognition is justified. After all, the guys and the gals can't get insurance; they should at least have a crack at an Oscar! * * - * SERENADE: Wednesday at tlie Yates mezzo-soprano Nora Rose in. recital This is part of the University of Lethbridge concert series. Mrs. Rose will sing a group of Elizabethan love songs, folk songs and operatic arias. She is a charming artist and a fine actress. This latter quality always adds extra dimension to her performance. Her accompanist, John Scarchfield, is in the mould of Gerald Moore, with total sympathy to both performance and performer. An added delight will be an opportunity to see and hear the harpsichord which is being brought from the University for the recital. BLAH: From Blues to total Blah in the 30-minute follow-up to Wednesday's special on venereal disease. CBC evidently felt some danger that viewers might switch off at the conclusion of this highly - effective production, just might decide to do a little thinking for themselves, just might have their own family rap session. So what did we get? A post discussion that could be likened to a group analysis of the arsonist while the"whole town burns down.

Judge Joel Tyler found the defendant corporation guilty of two counts of promoting obscenity and ruled it could be fined up to twice the amount of the profits the movie has grossed since it opened here last June. The fine will be set later. The city brought' the obscenity proceeding against Mature Enterprises Inc. in a test case as part of its drive to clran up Times Square. The trial was held without a jury.

The, big beasts, weighing up to nearly a ton, are simply hungry, and the open spaces, in and around Anchorage have an abundant supply of the foods moose like best, such as willow and birch shrubs. Residents of Anchorage are used to the annual visit of some 800 to 1,300 moose, but they've learned to avoid being blase about it. "My daughter demolished a four-door sedan," one city official explained. "She hit a moose who kicked the car to pieces trying to get off the hood." North gas well \ tests continue ; CALGARY (CP) - Gulf Olj Canada and Mobil Oil Canadi announced here that their joint wildcat well in the Mad-kenzie Delta 60 miles nortij west of Inuvik, N.W.T., oaf flowed gas in three tests ootv ducted through casing perforations between 7,000 and 8,000 foot. ?

A ',( >l INl 'Dnn.L [TEXACO]' It's bad luck to wear new boots on pole BOSTON (AP) - It's bad luck for a powerline worker to wear new boots when he .climbs a pole. Maxie Compton of Sumter, S.C., bucked the superstition and lost last autumn when he wore shiny new boots up a pole and a loose line sent 23,000 volts of electricity through his body. The jolt left Compton partly paralysed, his body badly burned and partially blind. However, he is determined to overcome the disabilities. "When I get out of here, I'm going to climb one more pole," he says, "and I want my wife to take a picture of me doing it." Compton, 33, is undergoing rehabilitation in the spinal cord unit at the Boston University Medical Centre. Even though his doctors say it will be a "long haul," they say he is making a remarkable comeback. LAVENDER: At least a dingy mauve. Purple Play house, an eagerly anticipated offering for a Sunday evening, Not to fault Barry Morse. He was in rare Tod Slaughter form as Sweeney Todd, the instant pie-filling innovator. Sets, atmosphere were just fine for this initial retrospective of Victorian Melladrasma. But, Mr. Morse aside, the players obviously did not understand the genre. However, another look this week may find the players catching the coat-tails of another fine old stager, Tony Van Bridge ... not hanging on to them. *  * IN BANFF: And on stage tonight at the provincial one-act festival, Lethbridge Youth Theatre's Bowman Players and their production of Babel Rap. Festival weekend offers six plays and workshops with Theatre Calgary's Harold Bald-ridge (acting-directing), George Dexter (design) of Edmonton's Theatre Three, and J. E. Cost-ley (community theatre). The plays will be adjudicated by Esse Jungh. Good adjudicators, and Mr. Jungh is outstanding, are not easy to find. Dr. Brian Tyson of the University of Lethbridge, who served this same office at the local regional festival, was splendid, critically astute to the benefit of the participants, entertainingly informative for the audience.    WRITERS: It is interesting to note that the winning plays in the one-act festivals in Medicine Hat, Red Deer and Lethbridge were all works by Oana dian playwrights. And its good to see that Theatre Calgary will include in its season, and opening this Wednesday Leaving Home by Canadian . David French. Without too much flag waving, something good is happening which may encourage more writers to get into the act. The provincial playwriting competition is at least an opportunity to get a decent and free appraisal of your work. Deadline for script entry for adult competition, one-act or three is April 16.
