Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Canadian theatre group receives reviews' ADELAIDE (Reuter) The Str.atford Theatre Company of Canada received 'good reviews' in Australian newspapers today for its performance here of Moliere's farce, the Imaginary Invalid. William Hull, in the role of Ardan, especially caught the fancy of the critics. The Stratford, Ont., company took nine curtain calls after its opening performance here of this major stage piece of the Adelaide Festival of Arts. Writing in the Advertiser, drama critic Mary Armitage says: "The French are reported to be finding Mohere rather a strain. The South Australians look like making him a prime, peoples-type, festival fun- show. LONELY? at home? knowing what to do? friends and Companions?

Director Jean Gascon presents an adroit, essentially Anglo-Saxon romp for all seasons. But William Hutt's argan must be its star. He is a big, craggy actor (for a rough comparison try Ralph Richardson) with a splendid range of voice and humors, from pawky to tender "We would likely have had a more rewarding view of the play's toinette (Pat Galloway) as the highly praised Kate of Stratford's Taming of the Shrew." 'KING' OF STAGE In the News, John Kirby writes: "Hutt is the undisputed king of this production and he deserved every bow he took before the enraptured audience. "Nicholas Pennell, still trying to live down the success of his role in Television's Forsyte Saga, delivers a beautiful performance heavily disguised as the odious Thomas Diafoirus.

Gene Autry going strong at 66 Ex-cowboy multimillionaire By BOB THOMAS LOS ANGELES (AP) On the first day of filming the spectacle Earthquake, a real quake measuring a lowly 3.5 on the Richter scale shook the city. Said one of the movie crew: "Do you suppose someone is trying to tell us Regardless of omens, Universal Pictures is going ahead with plans to fool with Mother Nature. The new film will stage an earthquake that virtually destroys Los Angeles. Earthquake is the result of Hollywood's determination to top a hit. When Airport became Universal's biggest moneymaker of all time, the town's studios tried to figure why. Their deduction: audiences enjoy films about a group of people facing a common danger. Universal commissioned a novel from Godfather author Mario Puzo, then handed the project over to producer- director Mark Robson, whose beginnings as a film editor nelped qualify him for all the trick photography of Earthquake. The cast has Charlton Heston, Ava Gardner, George Kennedy, Genevieve Bujold, Lome Greene, Richard Roundtree, Barry Sullivan, Lloyd Nolan, Marjoe Gortner. Executive producer Jennings Lang said the studio -is "starting a new company to devise ways to enhance films so they will offer something more than people can get on television." By JOHN BARBOUR LOS ANGELES (AP) Only 45 years ago the young cowboy from Oklahoma stepped stiffly from the railway coach he'd ridden across the country, checked his guitar and his ase and began poundi v York's sidewalks 1" a job. He wantc _ He wore a broad-brimmed hat and boots, just the way he dressed back home. Today. Gene Autry is 66. He dresses like the conservative businessman he is He owns a string of radio and television stations, a hotel in Palm Springs and the California An- gels baseball team He hopes to win an American League pennant in a year or two. He once owned the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco and a number of other hotels. In short. Gene Autry is a multimillionaire. He doesn't sing for his supper anymore, and even if he did, his fans wouldn't recognize the voice. It is deeper now than that of the white-hatted cowboy tenor whose movies were built around his songs. He has come a long way from Tioga, Tex., where he was born, and the Oklahoma ranch where he helped his father, and the railway ticket offices where he learned Morse, wrote train orders and sang to his guitar to pass the long night hours. It was in the Chelsea, Okla.. railway station, just outside Tulsa, one night that a fella came by, name of Will Rogers. "He came in one night to send his column back to the Autry remembers, "and he heard me playin' and smgin', and he said, 'You know young fella, you ought to get yerself a job on the radio "Later, on, when things got pretty rough on the railroad, I said, well, if Will Rogers thought I was good enough to be on the radio, maybe I should take a shot at it." He started on station KVOO in Tulsa. and also played to civic clubs. The depression was on and he was only working part time on the railway.

From there to New York. He made on record for Victor and then signed with American Record Corp. which produced records under private labels for big chain stores. In his first recordings for American he scored a big hit with That Silver-Haired Daddy of Mine. The parade of hits continued with songs like Mexicali Rose. The threads began to draw together. The movie industry in Hollywood was blooming with sound. "The last movie I made was in 1962 or somewhere around Autry says. "I couldn't tell you the name of it, tell the truth. I made so many. Let's see. I made 56 for Republic, one for 20th Century and the serial, and I did 40 for Columbia in which I was a then I did 100 halfhour shows for television.'' Gene likes to take a visitor through his scrapbooks of the singing cowboy days. He his records have sold almost 40 million copies, with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer the biggest hit. paramount cinema 8th St 4th Ave South 327 5100 STARTS TOMORROW 6 Academy 6 Award Nominations aBEDFORD TOGETHER!
