Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, March 20, 1974 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD-7 Official hypocrisy singer's target MOSCOW (AP) On a raw and snowy night 60 persons, several with tape recorders, crammed into a small living room to hear a concert by a man who might be called the Soviet Union's Bob Dylan. The man, Alexander Galich, is known to millions of Russians for his songs on social and political themes. But unlike the American Comic book hero back WINTHROP, Mass. (AP) The man who says he filled the original Superman mold has dusted off his cape and jersey, shed 87 pounds to fit into them, and is ready to fill the role of the comic book hero once again after 30 years of relative obscurity. Mayo Kaan, 60, a health- club owner in this Boston suburb, says he was discovered in 1935 in a Boston health club by the creators of the cartoon character who talked him into posing for them. This was followed by a trip to Hollywood and a couple of movies, including a Superman epic called A Trip to Mars. After a brief stint selling war bonds, and making some public appearances, Kaan returned to the health club. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Phone 328-4095 folkrock star, Galich in concert does not get splash publicity. He has been ostracized officially and his songs go unpublished. Most of his bitingly satirical songs are anti-establishment. Galich, 55, pokes fun at offi- cial hypocrisy, laments the apathy of the Soviet masses, evokes images of labor camps and Soviet tanks around Prague Castle in Czechoslovakia, and contrasts the humdrum existence of the proletarians with the rosy picture painted by the sloganeers. real name is draws on his own Jewishness to sing soulfully about the Jewish exodus from Russia and the tribulations of those, like him, who are left behind. OUSTED BY UNIONS In late 1971 and early 1972 Galich was expelled first from the official Writers Union and then from the Union of Soviet Cinematographers on the grounds that his songs incited Jews to emigrate. "I was accused of propagat- ing Zionism, of connections with anti-Semites and of consorting with Galich told a recent concert audience. Gahch's expulsions from the creative unions deprived him of his state salary and any chance to publish his work, even if it met standards of ideological purity. Since then he and his wife have been living on a monthly pension of 60 rubles Though Gallon's songs are not officially recorded and distributed, they circulate all over the U.S.S.R. through a phenomenon called or "self- recording SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES CARDSTON Mayfair "A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS" in color.

But to his Italian- American neighbors in Brooklyn, Vincent Gardenia is king of the hill. "Vinny was always tops, even before he was such a big says Sal Alba, a baker who has known Gardenia for 40 years. "The people who knew him since he was a little IriH uritH think Vinny always did the right thing." Gardenia, known as Frank Lorenzo to an estimated 50 million viewers of television's All in the Family series, doubts he will ever leave Brooklyn because, "to me, this is reality." "When I get finished with a picture or shooting the Bunker series, I look forward to the hassle and reality of he said. "Most of my friends who have known me since I was a kid are here." Gardenia, unmarried, lives in the predominantly Italian, middle-class Bensonhurst sec- tion of Brooklyn, sharing a home with his sister, her hus- band and their three sons. Walk into any shop in the neighborhood and you're likely to see a picture of Gar- denia over the cash register or On n 11 a Trail. On a recent Saturday, Gar- denia went to the neighbor- hood drugstore to fill a pre- scription for a nephew who had the flu. shouted the druggist, Mike Mucelli. The two men embraced. said Mucelli, me and the wife went to the mov- ies to see Bang the Drum Slowly the other night.

"You really played a great part and it must have been tough because you never did go much for baseball." "When they told me to go to third said Gardenia, "I had to ask them where it was." Gardenia took the pre- scription and started to leave. "Ciao, Vinny said Mucelli. "Remember me to the family." Gardenia said his neighbors are all working people. One drives a cement truck, an- other operates a gas station and another is a utility worker. When Gardenia won a Broadway Tony Award in 1972 for his supporting role in Prisoner -of Second Avenue, his neighbors gave him a horn- blowing, pot-drumming procession. To show his thanks, he and his sister Con- nie gave a party for some 80 neighbors. STARTED EARLY Gardenia, whose real name is Scognamiglio, got his start at the age of 5 when he worked with his father in the Italian theatre. His first English- speaking part came 25 years later in a summer stock production of Burlesque. Gardenia said the 10 shows he has done as the efferves- cent neighbor of Archie Bunker have done the most for his career and that he is proud of the role. "Frank Lorenzo is not a stupid Gardenia said. "He speaks perfect Italian and English. I think it's an asset to the Italian status." After lunch, Gardenia went to Sal Alba's bakery several blocks from his home. "I remember how your fa- ther used to do all the Italian love said one elderly customer. "My wife says you remind her of him when she sees you on television." Gar- denia's father died in 1965. Gardenia said that Alba and his family started his busi- ness from nothing and "have made it into one of the best shops in Brooklyn." Asked if stardom would cause him to move out of Brooklyn, he smiled and said: "These are my friends. They know me since I was a kid. "The people who pay you accolades on the way up are the same ones against you on the way down. I think I can handle what's happening to me now but it's all liable to end tomorrow. Everything around you changes and if you start to believe it you can be in real trouble." HAMILTON GOES CANADIAN RCA Canada has scored a first with the signing of country star George Hamilton IV to an exclusive worldwide contract This is the first time an established Americn artist has signed with the Canadian subsidiary of an American label. Merrie England centre will cost million Rumors are in the air again that the Beatles may reunite for at least one more album, this latest report coming from drummer Ringo Starr. Observers of the British rock group have repeatedly speculated on the reunion of the Beatles, disbanded since 1969, but to date nothing has materialized. Archie Bunker's neighbor king of hill in Brooklyn LONDON (CP) Merrie England, brainchild of history buff Warwick Charltpn, is an attempt to present history as an exciting experience for both children and adults. Combining entertainment and education will be a physical recreation of 15 historical periods on a 45-acre site in the Midlands. The idea, which will cost about million, first came to Charlton during a lecture tour of the United States He rebelled at the idea of the Englishman as an unemotional, bowler-hatted gentleman not given to fun. "Then I realized that we English too have the wrong idea of Charlton said. "I thought that we needed to rediscover the sort of people we were in order to know what we are." Backed by a giant entertainment organization, Merrie England began to take shape after three years of careful planning. Visitors may approach Merrie England as the Romans did, in a 500-seat galley. Other systems of transport are chariots, sedan chairs, carnages, horse- drawn buses, an electric train and a mono-rail each in its own period. PLENTY OF ACTIVITY Most people will probably prefer to work their way through the ages with no skipping. But there is bound to be shuttling back and forth in order not to miss the Roman chariot races, the battles of the Plantaganets, corontations, archery contests and maypole dances. Wherever feasible, the public will be invited to participate. Rising above the scene will be Camelot, the pinnacled, crenellated castle of the legendary King Arthur. This will be a 260-ropm hotel entered by a draw-bridge and the scene of revelry in the banqueting hall and on the battlements, where up to guests will watch an ox being spit-roasted and then devour it as they cheer their knights in jousting tournaments. A focal point will be a 65- acre artificial lake Here a full-scale reproduction of Sir Francis Drake's Golden Hinde will be berthed and those who board her will be met by a crew in 16th-century costume and by the painters and musicians who accompanied Drake when he circumnavigated the world. Spanning the lake will be a replica of London Bridge as it was in 1630 feet long and complete with shops, stalls and sideshows. At one end of the bridge will be the Elizabethan period, dominated by the Globe Theatre and the Mermaid Tavern. The Globe will stage a never-ending rehearsal, with Will Shakespeare himself on the scene and with members of the audience getting the chance to jump up from the pit and declaim. After a stroll over the bridge, stopping to watch craftsmen at work and perhaps buy a sample of their labor, the visitors will be in the Restoration period, where they can rest their feet and let modern technology portray a parade of events starting with the death of Cromwell and including a spectacular Fire of London. "We are going to have split screens, stereophonies, laser techniques and other means of producing Charlton said Hopes he can British director Robin Phillips, who, starting this fall, succeeds Jean Gascon as artistic director of the festival company at Stratford, Ont., was in Ottawa this week to talk to the Canada Council and others about the future of the Stratford Festival after it con- cludes its 22nd season late in October. Phillips wants to make something more distinctively Canadian out of the Stratford Festival, whose forte has always been Shakespeare and the European classics.

Literature too will have its place To illustrate The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan a series of nine circular mazes has been devised, each representing a stage in the Progress. "Unlike other mazes, this one is not flat, but like a castle, on different said Charlton. "You will reach the Celestial City if you succeed in passing through all of them. But if you are not an exemplary Christian there will be a separate exit from each maze."
