Combined losses of more than for five major film companies. Up for sale: Paramount's 52- acre studio and 150 acres of 180-acre MGM. Feature production temporarily halted on the 20th Century-Fox lot and at Warner Brothers. The bad news won't quit. The Writers Guild reports only 118 screenwriters were em- ployed last December, com- pared with -218 the previous year. Daily Variety says. "Never before has the town seen such a crisis.'' In a time ot artistic and tech- nical innovation, Hollywood has lost its magic touch for luring the mass audience. Tho young form long lines outside a few boxoffices, but most of their eld- ers stay home, many of them watching TV. RECEIPTS DOWN Despite a tremendous popula- tion surge, last year's boxoffice gross was 24 per cent below that of 194D (though the highest since A trade magazine says "1969 represented an all- time low in the number of movie patrons." Foreign returns, normally half of Hollywood's take, have been disappointing, too. Last year, U.S. companies made 226 movies in the United States and abroad, six fewer than in 1968. Before the Second World War, when B pictures were still profitable, Hollywood An Old Argument OTTAWA (CP) It has al- ways been a matetr of argu- ment on Parliament Hill whether an MP can get more done for his riding and region as an opposition member or as a government supporter. The opposition member can raise the roof and thereby hope to bring public attention and government aid to his constitu- ency problems. On the other hand, he can also arouse gov- ernment hostility with too much criticism. A government supporter has quicker and easier access to ministerial ears. But if he wants to remain on the government side he is implicitly discouraged from using the weapon of public criticism. CONFLICTING EVIDENCE There is some recently con- flicting evidence on the subject. In the 1968 general election, Newfoundland returned six Con- servative MPs and one Liberal. The six Conservatives rap the government in the Commons al- most constantly. The Liberal is Transport Min- ister Don doesn't rap the government at all, at [east not in public. On April 21, the federal and Newfoundland governments signed an agreement under which Ottawa will pour in grants and loans into the province in the next two years. WESTERN ADD This for instance, with in federal aid earmarked for farmers of all :hree prairie provinces under the wheat acreage reduction program. The financial aid to New- xmndland will be spent for 'economic expansion and social adjustment1' in "special areas requiring special ;he agreement says. The money will go for roads, bridges, schools, residential land and the like.

The reported job- less by the AFL Hollywood Film Council are 42.8 per cent of the behind-the-camera work- ers represented by an amalgam of unions. President John W. Lehners says he believes it's the highest number of unemployed in Holly- wood history. SEEK ANSWERS Are there answers to Holly- wood's welter of woes? The in- dustry thinks so. They include hard-headed business practices films at persons aged 30 and under who are 75 per cent of today's cessions by the workers them- selves. To cut costs and stimulate production, Screen Actors Guild directors have approved several contract modifications. By one, a star no longer will be paid while a double represents him in so-called reproduction shots before principal photography begins. Richard Walsh, president of the International Affiance of Theatrical Stage Employees, says there will be a "flexibility of crews that will save a great amount of money." Tough, aggressive manage- ments are bringing traditionally free-spending movie-making into the computerized, cost-con- trolled world of big business. Conglomerates have moved in. Gulf and Western Industries has taken over at Paramount, Transamerica Corp. at United Artists, Kinney National Service at Warner Brothers. Today's no-nonsense approach because of chang- ing public tastes, film projects on which millions have been in- vested. budget limit on most films, to for spectacles that not long ago cost three times as much. if any further super- star salaries of against 10 per cent of the gross. Julie Andrew's Star! bombed at the boxoffice. So did Sweet Charity, for which Shirley MacLaine received and a percentage. But The Graduate, in which a then-unknown Dustin Hoffman starred for has grossed AIM AT YOUNG Meanwhile, an industry that once mass-produced movies for a mass market is slanting the great bulk of its product toward the young. The 1968 boxoffice bonanza The Graduate started the cycle. Another landmark was last year's Easy Rider. Made in seven weeks on a borrowed the film has grossed and the end is no- where in sight. What magic ingredient lures the young? "Themes and stories that these young people find rele- says Jack Valenti, presi- dent of the Motion Picture Asso- ciation of America. Sex is treated candidly. An executive listing his studio's up- coming films said: "These are not the bland love stories or comedies you see on TV or in movies of the past. They're sharp, incisive comments about married life and extramarital life." But sexual frankness may be losing its appeal. In Variety's annual estimates, the No. 1 U.S.-Canada moneymaker i s 1969 was Walt Disney's The Love Bug, with Run- ner-up was Funny Girl, with Indeed, Hollywood may be running the whole youth trend into the ground.
