Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Fridgy, Mny 5, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 His big chance and he blew it LONDON (AP) A spec- tacular musical version of Gone Wilh thu Wind opened lo ovations in London Wednes- day night, and Rlidl Butler's horse made it truly memora- ble. As the burning of Atlanta got under way, 'Charlie (he horse suffered a large-scale attack of first-night nerves which they had to clear up in the interval. "My said a spokes- man for Drury Lane Theatre, "Charlie has been rehearsing for fmir months without ever showing signs of stage fright. APPEARING NIGHTLY In The "AZTEC" Lounge At The EL RANCHO WM. JAMES ROGERS Star of TV and Radio, ly returned fiom Cross Can- ada Tour wilh "Ann Murray." "It was his big chance, and he blew it." The first night audience ov- ercame' giggles at Charlie's unscheduled production and erupted in cheers and ap- plause for Joe Layton's pro- duction of the Margaret Mitchell epic of the American Civil War. Charlie has an understudy named Nellie ready lo step into the breach if his weak- ness persists. As for the reviewers, the musical is a triumph or a horc, depending on which newspaper critics you read. But it's spectacular, they all agreed, and should be in for a long run. Montreal ballet in New York NEW YORK (AP) Lcs Grand Ballets Canadiens from Montreal opened its fourth en- gagement here, dancing the same thing it has danced every time it has been here, the rock opera, Tommy. With Tommy was the Ameri- can premier of Ceremony, a I s h o r t e r work. This will al- ternate with a jazz and rock ballet, Hip and Straight, as the companion lo Tommy through the month that the company will now spend at the City Centre. All three are choreographed bv Fernand Nault.

A 4 4 .loan Waicrfield E NTERTAINMENT LYE pADDY CJIAYEVSKY, who won an Oscar for his script of The Hospital, may have derived his approach from existential therapist Rollo May. In his book Love and Will, May writes: "Death is the symbol of ultimate Impotence and finiteness" and further, "Sex is the easiest way to prove our vitality, to demon- strate we are still 'young', at- tractive and virile, to prove we are not dead Chayevsky's Chief of Staff ot an inner city medical centre (George C, Scott) contemplates the first and opts for the sec- ond Physically, If not spiritually, refreshed he returns to the jnoiiument to malpractice and depersonalization. It's the final eopout in a story thai begins, briskly and harsh- ly, then falters and is carried to its conclusion by the sheer force and intelligence of the ac- tors. The hlack comedy, however, turns tattle-tale grey possibly because it does not pursue an essential truth but merely em- bellishes the documented fact that large metropolitan hospi- tals are over-crowded, under- staffed, ill equipped, bu- reaucratic places where the patient becomes faceless and is merely his sickness. Scott is in great form Diana Higg silkily voices her sometimes shocking lines and there's a peach of a per- formance from a young actor (Robert Waldon) as the senior resident. The Hospital reinforces the warning given in The French Connection; that despite Mayor John Lindsay's promotion of New York as 'Fun City', it may not be wise to visit even if you wouldn't want to live there. If you must go have your medical insurance number tat- tooed on your arm don't gel mugged and if you land up in hospital stay out of room IlDfi! 1- 0 LOOK ALIKES: Movie and television families are made up of the most unlikely in- gredients. Allotting for disparate looks in theatrical parents, it would seem likely that the off-spring cast would have some common physical denominators this apart from the mandatory red hair of the. Life With Father brood. Perhaps Central Casting al- ready has a file of possible cine-siblings. With this in mind, I offer {gratis) these suggestions for probable pair-ups; George C. Scott and Roy S c h e i d e i (French Martin Landau (ex-M i s s i o n Impos- sible) and Bradford Dillman; Mike Kellin, a fine character actor antl the voice of many commercials, and Harry Guardino; James Franciscus (Longs tree t) and Richard Chamberlain (Dr. Kildare gone Any more for the collection? and how about the distaff side, got some ideas?

Coal is key to well-being of province EDMONTON (CP) The Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy has been told that coal companies should be "realistic" when they project expected increases in coal con- sumption. H. S. Haslam, a Vancouver mining consultant, told the in- stitule's annual coal meeting that people in the coal industry "get carried away with possible good prospects for marketing vast known reserves." Mr. Haslam said, however, that Alberta's coal reserves could be E key to the well-being of the province's economy, pro- viding the raw m a t e r i a 1 for massive gassification plants and power generation facilities. He said coal reserves in the Yukon will not be developed un- til those of Alberta and British Columbia.
