Kippax went on: "Thero is Miss Tanya Moiseiwitsch's autumnal set, its gold and verdigris hinting at the dust and decay into which old monomaniac Argan's house is falling. "And there is Argan himself, played by Mr. William Hutt with the robustness and vigour needed to bring his hypochondria within humanity while preserving all that is ridiculus in the character. "Mr. Hutt is at the centre of a fine ensemble, playing with splendid agility and verve." ORBIT CYCLE Mars takes 687 earth days to orbit the sun once. THE NOOK will be Opening Soon!

"Eat he urges in the voice of an Eastern European grandpa, "you'll write better." The temptation to pat that vulnerable face and hug those rounded shoulders is strong. It's a reaction the New York actor has learned to live with. "An extraordinary number of people stop me on the street and say 'I love Gilford says, dropping the characterization, "and I don't know how to cope with it. I say to my wife, 'What the hell is that? What if they really mean they love Dozens of "warm, small, schmaltzy roles" account for this public affection, but with his performance in the film, "Save the Gilford has taken a turn away from sweet parts. The result: an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor, and a starring role on Broadway. The dress manufacturer Gilford plays in "Save the Tiger" is a tough man "who survives under the worst possible circumstances. During the first reading, I felt something wasn't going well.

That was the year CFCN gave you an alternative to television viewing in Southern Alberta. What has happened in the past five years is history! Now CFCN TV, Lethbridge, is on the threshold of further- ing its commitment, responsibility and involvement in Southern Alberta. On the morning of Friday, March 1st, at CFCN TV. became the first Lethbridge television station to telecast in color from its studios. CFCN TV was also the first to bring you colorcasting back in 1970, with the live, color telecast of the Whoop-Up Parade and featured programs from the Exhibition Grounds.

You'll see the news of the world, the nation, and all of Southern Alberta, reported not from Calgary but from the new all color studios of CFCN TV, Lethbridge.

Mike Scott and Leo Dow are experienced reporters, with a desire to interpret the news of the day, to formulate opinions and ideas and to share their information in news, sports weather and agriculture with you, nightly on the CFCN Evening News. On April 1st, at take a closer look at the CFCN Evening News and discover our new way of looking at television news. Who knows? We might just see eye to eye. CFCN Evening News A new way to look at television news movie, I not only got an Academy Award nomination, I got the role I'm doing now in Sunshine Boys' (Neil Simon's comedy on Broadway) "I play a cantankerous, nasty old Gilford says with relish. "Ten years ago I wouldn't have been offered this part. But I like to play mean parts. It's wonderful." So, too, he says, is the Oscar. "I understand George C Scott's attitude towards the Oscar and I respect him for it, but I don't share his lack of enthusiasm. If you feel you've been deprived, you're happy about the nomination. I've been around a very long time and it's taken me a long time to get recognition." Forty years in the business. Everything from vaudeville to nightclubs to theatre to film. "I started as a mimic in amateur night shows. I was very shy about my acting in the beginning, but it was the Depression and we had no money. My father left when I was fourteen. If a friend of mine didn't shame me into going on the stage, I wouldn't have done it. I did imitations of Jimmy Walker, Laurel and Hardy, Georgie Maurice Chevalier. "My first performance was in an amateur show in the Bronx Opera House, a burlesque house, in 1934.1 was paid a dollar and I split first prize with a professional dancer who had the night off from his job. I had no set routine. I didn't even know you were supposed to have things worked out before. Whatever came to me, I did.'" Gilford attributes his durability in the business to the fact that "I never had the sense to quit! I even waited to get married because I was afraid I'd marry someone who'd say, 'Why don't you stop this nonsense and get a job? You haven't worked in six months.' There are periods like that, you know. But my wife is Miss Show Business. She'd never think of asking me to quit." Not even during the 10 years when, as a result of the witch- hunting era in Hollywood, Gilford was blacklisted. "It was a horrendous thing, that blacklisting, but I don't like to talk about it because it makes me look like a martyr. There were no movie offers but there were small paying jobs on Broadway.
