Jeremiah Johnson seeks his by leaving the sea and painful memories of war to head for the high country and life as a mountain man. This lonely saga of Johnson has been made into a visually lovely if at times slow moving movie by director Sydney Pol- lack. He's got a pretty sure thing in the box office appeal of Robert Bedford who obviously relishes his role as the early 19th century dropout. Bedford in his own life goes to the mountains of Utah to escape the Hollywood rat race so its is believable that he brings ?o his characterization the indelible sound of private experience Better still though Geer and Stefan Gierasch who midwive Bedford through his tough apprenticeship. Geer is absolutely wonderful as Bear Claws, a tough and feisty old codger of the sink or swim school whose idea of fun is to lead a grizzly into his cabin and let Johnson cope. Likewise with tfwe (Gier- a mountain man of low ethnics and high courage dis- covered rirst buried up to his neck in sand, playing his own brand of mountain madness to the hilt. And what a relief to find the love intelest, an Indian maiden bartered in pride by her Flat- head chief father is not a pretty little Mexican masquerader speaking with unforked tongue. Delle Bonton has a pure con- vincing beauty and, as the gen- tle bride, makes an impressive debut. Where the film languishes is in the compression of the time of learning and the ultimate creation of Johnson the legend. Much more could have been made of the early learning pro- cess with Will Geer. Less con- fusion might have been creat- ed to explain the relentless pur- suit of Johnson by the Crow. Was it for the despoiling of the sacred burying ground or the slaughter initiated by Uwe? There are too many shots of horsemen emerging hazily from brush and butte, too many silent confrontations Yet one can applaud the honest intent of the director to give better in- sight into Indian white rela- tions and one would have to have a tin-eye indeed not to get drunk on the visual splen- dor of a free and noble ter- rain. t SURE THINGS seen this past week on Channel 13, That Certain summer will certainly pick up an Emmy, May 20, as best TV movie of the year. Awards already garnered in- clude the Silver Nymph, (best TV (International Tele- vision Festival, Monte Carlo) Golden Globe (Hollywood For- eign Best Director (Di- rectors' Guild) and Best Ori- ginal Teleplay (Writers Guild) More telling than any award is the giant step taken by tele- vision in the- handling of the delicate subject of homosexual- ity. Hal Holbrook again proved his superb talents as an actor; no other could have brought such force and subtlety to the role. No less were the contribu- tions of Martin Sheen's sensitive performance; Hope Lange as the still-loved and loving wife; Scott Jacoby, the young son re- pelled b> a situation that de- fies his understanding. The butt of the cheap joke, the subject in That Certain Summer moved from a twilight imposed by society into a new day of understanding and com- passion. A BUSY: That's MurM Jolliffe. Together with regular classes she's rehearsing the numbers to be included in Art Council's Sunday Afternoon at the Yates, drilling her corps de ballet for Pineapple Poll to be staged during the Playgoers Festival Week and readying her dancers for the annual Evening of Dance in early June. There's well deserved pride, too, in that a former stu- dent Esther Murillo has not only received a Canada Council grant for study but has now pined the National Ballet com- pany; in another, Jane Lee, now married and with her dan- cer husband in a Peruvian company; that daughter Carol will study this summer with the Royal Academy in London; and that Vanessa Plettell has re- ceived a tuition scholarship at the Banff School of Fine Arts.

Miss MinnelH would say only that her mother died owing "a .substantial sum" which she has been clearing for more than a year. "People had fooled Mama and taken advantage of her so she said. Miss Minnelli, 27, was in top form for a camera session wearing a pants suit, fox fur and diamante studded "my Happy Hooker ihe called them.
