Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Young Canadian actor stars in adventure yarn Dumas pere's great romantic novel The Corsican Brothers has provided the stage and screen with one of the meatiest swash-buckling stories ever, a great adventure yarn the whole family can enjoy. An adaptation of the novel, ' with the young Canadian actor Rick McKenna as the twin brothers Louis and Lucien, is the sixth production in the Purple Playhouse series, for telecast Sunday, April 1 at 9:00 p.m. on the CBC-TV network. As a result of a vendetta on the island of Corsica, the twins have been cursed from infancy by a man their father killed -each shall henceforth feel the pain of the other's suffering. The curse follows the brothers from boyhood through manhood, and even the pangs of unrequited love strike both. When Louis as a young man leaves Corsica to seek the woman he loves in Paris and in defending her honor engages in a duel with a master swordsman, Lucien feels every cut of the sword that pierces his brother's body. Realizing that Louis is in mortal danger Lucien leaves Corsica to avenge him. As Robertson Davies explains in bis introduction, what gives the play its special appeal is this sympathetic bond between th� brothers. It's been staged in -the theatre ever since the 1850s and played in Canada in the 20s, when Martin-Harvey starred in the dual role. On thep screen Dustin Faraum starred in the silent version (1919) and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. in the 1940 version. Later there was The Return of the Corsican Brothers (1953) with Richard Green, and a French film in. 2960 starring the British actor Geoffrey Toone. Rick McKenna, who has appeared in such CBC-TV productions as The Family and The Discoverers, is a 23 year-old actor from Belleville, Ont., who says be is still studying bis art. The Corsican Brothers proved very demanding for him, he says, "I needed a lot of time alone to get the change in character, but in television that's not always possible. There's always something going on. It was very taxing. On one day I had to change character three times, and it's not done with make-up. It's not a subtle change, but very obvious. We establish the difference in the brothers right away, in the first scene showing the brothers grown up. One brother, Louis, is leaving Corsica for Paris to find one woman. The ether, Lucien, is surrounded by women. He has an avarice for sensuality. Louis is restrained, the idealist. So we see the basic separation of the two' immediately." I Another dual role Rick .McKenna (left) stars in the dual ro!e of the Corsican Brothers (Loots and Lucien) on CBC-TV's Purple Playhouse, Sunday, April 1, 9 p.m. With him in this scene is Frank Aldous at the moment when Lucien in Corsica, feels the pain of Louis in France, who is fighting a duel.

Lack of jazs on music scene brings lament NEW YORK (AP) - Clark Terry, a veteran trumpet player on the NBC music staff, laughed when asked what would happen if he were given an hour's time on a network and complete control of things. "I'd put some good stom-pin'-wailing jazz back on the scene," he said. "There's a great need for it- There's a tremendous lack of jazz on TV. It's almost a wasted scene nowadays." A typical answer for Terry, a respected studio sideman whose professional life has been devoted to playing good jazz, trying to pass on what he has learned to younger musicians and having as much fun as possible while doing it MM 1 Tuesday, April 3 1:00 cLet's Make a Deal Q AnotHer World: ID General Hospital 0 Movie: Three Guns for Texas 1:30 Q Hollywood's Talking 0 Truth or Consequences fB One Life 2:00 O Secret Storm 0 Nancy Miller 0 Our Lives 2:30 O Ed Allenn (s) Somerset 0 Oinah's Place Q Mike Douglas 3:00 r Take 30 0 Another World 0 Three On A Match 3:30 0 Edge of Night 0 Whats the Good Word 0 Dating Game 4:00 0 Family Court 0 Joker's Wild 0 Split Second 0 Anything You Can Do 4:30 0 Buckshot (7) Drop In 0 News 0 Bewitched 4:55 (g) News 5:00 9> Hollyood Squares 0 Password O News 5:30 r CJOC News. 0 News 0 News 5:55 0 News 6:00 0 Cousin Maude 0 Mission Impossible c News 6:30 0 Beat the Clock 0 Bridget Loves Berate 0 Truth or Consequences 7:00 0 Temperatures Rising 0 Help Inc. 0 Bob Newfaart 0 Movie: Lord Love a Duck 7:30 3 Headline Hunters 0 Movie: Family Flight 0 Hollywood Squares 8:00 0 The Seasons 0 Mary Tyler Moore 8:30 0 Flip WDson 9:00 0 Kreskin 0 Hawaii F:v?-0 0 Marcus Welby 9:30 0 Ian Tyson O Front Page Challenge 10:00 0 News 0 Tuesday Nile 0 News 0 Marcus Welby 10:30 0 Movie: Old Man and the Sea 0 Tonight Show 11:00 n News 0 News 11:20 f7) CJOC News (g) News 11:30 O Crossfire 12:00 0 Merv Griffin Show (7) Stampede Wrestling 1:00 0 Movie: Tcrazthawk Wednesday, April 4 3:00 3:30 1:00 O Let's Make a Deal 0 Another world 0 General Hospital 0 Movie: Live Now, Pay Later 1:30 0 One Lite 0 Hollywood's Talking 0 Truth or Consequences 2:00 0 Secret Storm 0 Klara's Korner 0 Our Lives 2:30 O Ed Allen 0 Somerset 0 Mike Douglas 0 Dinah's Place _ Take 30 0 Three on a Match 0 Another World Z Edge of Night 0 Dating Game 0 What's* the Good Word 4:00 O Family Court 0 Joker' Wild 0 After School Special "Alexander" 0 Anything You Can Do 4:30 (7) Drop In 0 News 0 Buckshot 4:55 c Star Trek 5:00 0 News 0 Password 0 Hollywood Squares 5:30 0 News O News, Wthr., Sports 0 News 6:00 0 NHL 0 Bob Newhart Show 0 News 6:30 0 Tn'th or Consequences 0 Elvis from Hawaii 0 Beat the Clock 7:00 r Oral Roberts 0 Movie: Farmer's Daughter 8:00 0 Cannon 0 Mystery Movie 8:30 O Sports Week 9:00 O 0 0 9:30 0 10:00 0 o 0 10:30 0 ID 0 11:00 O 0 11:20 0 m 11:30 0 12:00 0 Lawrence Welk Manirix Owen Marshall Jason King News The Wattons News Tonight Snow Movie: Black Scorpion Sports Beat '73 News News News CJOC News Crossfire Merv Griffin Movie: Son of Cleopatra Cown't help what A.M.A. travel service sa!d, you still cown't stay at Buckingham Palacel A.M.A. WORLD TRAVEL SERVICE located at 603 5.h Avenue South Phone 328-1181 or 328-7921 All enquiries we come Plenty of free parking ot rear of building MERCHANT PRINCE CMPORIUM CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 523-6980 A GIFT SHOP with unique items from around the workl and WIG BOUTIQUE Featuring the latest In to ales* heat resistant wtys Added attraction - Wig service provided ;
