Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta March 1i, LETHBRIDOE HERALD-7 Canadian film V second biggest O.C5 money-maker TORONTO is pouring in for Cry of the Wild, a Canadian film about wolves that has already earned more than million in tfte United second to The Exorcist on the New York money charts in January. The National Film Board (NFB) feature, the work of film-maker Bill Mason, is being distributed worldwide by American National Enterprises, which is getting 50 per cent of the take. The NFB is getting 42.5 per cent, with 7.5 per cent going to producer Ralph Ellis who paid for editing, music, script and narration for the film which was made from leftover footage of an NFB television special called Death of a Legend. Mason shot the film as an in- dictment of human behavior wolves while living with the animals in his family home in Quebec. Cry of the Wild opened in Montreal and grossed in its first week. A French- language version is set to open in 20 Quebec centres. Ellis said in an interview from London, England, that Final run WINNIPEG (CP) Indian, by British Columbia writer George Ryga, and Black Comedy, by British playwright Peter Shaffer, will form the final offering of the 1973-1974 season at the Manitoba Theatre Centre. The pair of one-act plays .runs from May 3 to 25. the success story began in Alberta when Calgary theatre- owner Hector Ross told him to stop fooling around in Toronto and to try test screenings in Western Canada. In March, 1973, the film was screened in several Edmonton theatres and the producer was overjoyed at the results. "From the box-office figures in Edmonton, I could tell the picture could be a hit with the right kind of Ellis said.

Greed, goofiness keeps TV give-away show tops LOS ANGELES (AP) What makes them write in by the thousands and wait up to three years for tickets? Why do they stand in line for hours, put on weird costumes and forget their inhibitions? Why do they risk for a possibly bigger a booby the curtain? Some critiesV have tried to explain it, chalking it up to greed and goofiness. It happens on Let's Make a perennially popular game show seen five afternoons a week on ABC and. syndicated to stations one night a week. Millions of people watch it and love it; and therefore Let's Make a Deal is an important show. So important that five years ago, when NBC refused to meet Monty Hall's price for a-new contract and he took the show to ABC, it virtually wrecked NBC's daytime schedule. Suddenly, ABC was a power to be reckoned with in the daylight hours. Game shows have come into their own in the daytime schedules with Let's Make a Deal in the vanguard. The soap opera is starting to creak with age. Hall, master of ceremonies for Let's Make a Deal and one of its originators with his part- ner. Stefan Hatos, over the years has formulated what he believes are the answers to the show's success. Z SUCCESS REASONS A youthful-looking 50, Hall says: "People are eager to get on the show for two reasons. The primary reason is to win a prize. But we also have a tre- mendous number of people who just want to see the show becaue it's a highly entertaining vehicle. "Since it did become a show of 'dressing people's own volition and not because we asked them get into the spirit and come to a costume party. "It helps the show, because they're much less inhibited and better able to have a good time." Hall said the nature of the game is to keep the bird in the hand or go for the bird in the bush. he said, "it be- comes a gamble." "When a contestant trades in a bedrdom set hoping to get a new car behind-the curtain and wins four pigs instead, she kisses he said. "They come to have fun, win or lose. They wouldn't kiss me if it was Agreed. "I also have my definition of greed. Greed is when the other guy wins. When you win it's fun, participation, gambling." MC operates on personality. It's the toughest commodity find. So when you do break through and become a success, you can make a long career of it." Although he tapes six shows a week 52 times a year, that doesn't seem to keep him busy. He appears on variety shows and situation comedies. In April, he flies to Florida to take a special, Monty Hall at Sea World; In addition, he's active in philanthropic causes. He goes all over the country to donate his time and effort, often, as he says in his new biography, Emcee Monty Hall, for little or no thanks. Hail said he doesn't believe his family life is affected by his schedule. "We're a very close-knit family. We pursue family life with as much vigor as my business life." His wife, the former Marilyn Pottel, was a well- known actress in Canada and has now turned to writing. Their daughter, Joanna, is a young actress who is appearing in light-opera roles. Son Richard is an "A" student at Yale University; and the youngest, Sharon, just 9, "hasn't done too much yet, but she says Hall. Franco-Chinese relations ruffled by French film PARIS (Reuter) Just 10 years after Charles de Gaulle re-established diplomatic links with Peking, Franco- Chinese relations appear ruf- fled by a film comedy in which the puritanical Chinese succumb to the charms of the French capital. The Chinese Embassy here issued a press statement warning that the film, Les Chinois a Paris (The Chinese in posed serious prob- lems for relations between the two countries: French Maoists handed out leaflets outside some of the 33 cinemas in the Paris area where the film is shown, charging that it insulted both the French and Chinese peo- ples. The film itself, though it pokes harmless least in Western the dedi- cated Peking revolutionaries, is a scathing attack on the al- leged traditional flaws in the French character. Based on a work of political film imagines the future occupation of France by the Chinese army, though events represented are only a slightly veiled account of what took place here during the German occupation of 1940- 1944. The Chinese were particu- larly galled at what they con- sidered parallels between their Popular Liberation Army (PLA) and the Nazi oc- cupation forces of yesteryear. Yet none of the Chinese sol- diers in the film is armed with anything more lethal than paper flowers. The only violence involved is that used by French police who will- ingly and enthusiastically serve the occupiers. The film itself abounds with episodes and in-jokes directed at all sectors of opinion but none is as outstanding as the sequence which is reported to have unleashed the ire of Pe- king. It is a spoof on a modern Chinese revolutionary opera in which French collaborators create .a modern version of revamped to align itself with Marxist-Leninist ideology. The sequence was filmed in the Paris Opera, with Bizet's classic played in a version representing a guerrilla cam- paign in which gum-chewing, long-haired American GIs op- pose the "Red Women's De- tachment." Peking saw this as ridicul- ing "the fruits of the cultural revolution." French authorities are also portrayed unflatteringly. French 'generals are seen squabbling among themselves as-each accuses the other of having lost the key which would unleash the "force de frappe" (France's nuclear striking And the French at large are portrayed as opportunists, cowards, gluttons and sex-ma- niacs. At the end of the film, the Chinese leave France ex- hausted after indulging in a wild 'round of debauchery which takes the film's cam- eras into bordellos, gambling casinos and transvestite nightclubs. "The French have been eat- ing, drinking and womanizing for cries the Japa- nese actor who plays the Chi- nese commander-in-chief. "My men can't take it any longer." "We are the ones who are really said Gilles Durieu. publicity chief for the film. "We worked night and day on Les Chinois and now that we thought we had earned a rest, we are completely over- run with buyers from the U.S., Britain and everywhere else you can think China."
