Not, it should be hastily added, via the casting director's couch. But having negotiated several TV series with reasonable success, having reached a oar* eer impasse, he Jumped it the opportunity to display his discreet physique across the centrefold of CoemopoUtan. This exposure paid off In numerous appearances in game and talk shows. At every turn of the dial Reynolds was to be found quipping coyly with in-studio audiences, exchanging desperately unfunny one - liners with Carol Burnett and Sonny and Cher. Was it worthwhile? The answer must be in the affirmative as the Reynolds beef-cake is served up in Deliverance one of the most highly-effective movies of the year.

But the rigors and terror of the trip into the hinterland destroys the male ego and offers only man into beast as the price of-survival. Reynolds as Lewis is an easily defined character but exceptionally bandied in counterpoint to Jon Votfht's Ed. They're the two ends of the taut string on which dengfe the other two members of the party. They are Bob (Ned Beatty) who is brutally sodomieed by idiot mountain men and Drew (Ronny Cox) who is the last to sever the link with civilisation. The confrontation of the four with their inadequate selves and the immensity of nature is stunning suspenseful moviemaking. But the real star is nature,, assaulting the eye and the senses in the magnificent photography of Vllmos Zslg-mond who, surprising enough, has not received an Academy Award nomination. Neither has writer James Dickey who may be spotted in the small role of the sheriff. Director John Boorman has picked up a nomination and Deliverance is up for the best film Oscar . . .

Royal Trust sponsors drama series TORONTO (CP) - Royal Trust Co. has purchased total sponsorship of the National Dream, CBC television's docu-menary-drama series based on Pierre Barton's books about the building of the CPR.

Mr. Berton will appear as host-narrator of the series, which features William Mutt as Sir John A. Macdonald and John Colicos as William Cornelius Van Home. HOLLYWOOD (AP) - "The thing that bothers me most about television is that no one really has a free choice." Darren McGavin, TV movie star and a veteran of three series, is turning toward producing and directing his own theatrical movies. McGavin, who starred in the ABC Movie of the Week, Night Stalker, the highest rated movie for television, said: "I think it's important to remain active in television. I don't want to withdraw. Move the medium. But it's a matter of choices." He organized his own company, Tauresn Films-S.A., and recently completed his first production, Mothers Day, in Nova Scotia. Ron Howard, Bobby Darrin, Patricia Neal sad Clorls Leachmen star. Would McGavin, the star of nearly a dozen TV movies, make films for television? He replied: "As a producer working within the framework of cinema, trying to reach an audience with truths, I find television not to be the area. I don't want to be crimped." McGavin, a feisty, loud-talk ing, red-haired Scotsman from Spokane, - Wash., said he went into moviemaking-financed independently from the studios- for freedom and control. KNOWS OWN MIND "I want to do what I want un der the :conditions I want. As ah actor, director and producer. I don't know if we'll accomplish it, but that's what I want." He contends that if producers had more freedom it would improve television and the movies. "What you would have is an upsurge in creativity," he said. "What you have now is a paucity of creativity." McGavin, the lead in the series Mike Hammer, Riverboat and The Outsider, said He thinks audiences have been exposed to so much television that they already know the plot of every potential show. "It's very difficult to involve an audience today because they're so jaded by all the nonsense that has been thrown at them," he said. "I think the only reason an audience goes to something is to be touched, to be altered, to be consumed." In the current season, McGavin starred in three ABC Movies of the Week, Say Goodbye Maggie Cole, The Six Million Dollar Man and The Night Strangler, a sequel to The Night Stalker. "If an actor can remove himself from that ego necessary to be an actor, he can look to the primary responsibility to attend to the intent of the script. Some actors can work with other ac- tors, but they can't help a block working toward the reso- script because they don't have lution of the play.
