But each has tremendous problems inherent in translating them from the printed page to film. The two are Peter Benchley's the story of a great white shark which terrorizes a Long Island beach and Irving Wallace's Fan a tale of four kooks who kidnap the movies' top sex symbol for their own pleasure. is tough because it isn't easy to take pictures of a shark eating Fan present a different problem. By its very it's a sexy theme. It should be an X-rated film but it also should be a big one. MUST CHOOSE And not many X-rated films are bijg so the producers will have to make a choice do it or fudge a bit to play to the box office. Peter who wrote tells me that they are currently shooting the shark sequences off the Australian coast. He says they found plenty of great whites but none as big as the monster he tells about in his book To compensate for the lack of size they've resorted to some cinema trickery. For the big scene an ichthyologist is in a under to get a closer look they used a midget in a small cage beneath a small so they would all look full size next to the relatively small shark. has been a bonanza to Benchley. He says he just had a big thrill writing a check for to pay his income tax. he had been on the receiving end of some even bigger checks the paperback sale was and the movie sale was Casting for is still being done. Benchley says it looks like Sterling Hayden will play the Roy Scheider the police chief and Richard Dreyfus the ichthyologist. Benchley wrote three drafts of the screenplay and it is close to the production. But as is his has had nothing to do with the movie version of Fan except to sell it for another whopping sum. Columbia bought the rights and it's their problem now. HELD TALKS They did talk to him about casting. Wallace says he had a long talk with producer Lawrence Gordon on the subject. He doesn't want a feeling that it would be hard for the audience to accept anyone but a major star or a complete unknown in the part of the biggest star of all. He believes the movie of Fan if it is done can be a milestone for movies. can open up the whole glamor thing in he has disappeared. If it succeeds it will bring back women in movies this is a man's town He thinks that only two actresses of any repute around today could play his sexport Sharon Fields. The two are Candy Bergen and Jacqueline Bisset. But he really would prefer to see a complete unknown in the role. Walkout of producers at CBC radio continues MONTREAL More than 70 CBC radio producers remained off the job for a seventh day today in a dispute management over jurisdiction of program content. Talks were held today be- tween CBC management and representatives of the producers based in Quebec City and Chicoutimi but there was little indication of progress towards a settlement. The week-long walkout has forced cancellation of all lo- cally-produced programs on CBC's 17 radio outlets in Que- bec as stations replaced live programs with pre-recorded music. newscasts have not been affected since the producers are not needed for their broadcast. The dispute started when management fired freelance journalist Jacques Tremblay for what the CBC felt was a one-sided report on the union at strike-bound United Aircraft of Canada Ltd. plants in nearby Longueuil. The journalist was later rehired on the basis that he would do a follow-up Show Times Familiar in TV pil program presenting the company but the producers argued that man- agement had bypassed them in dealing with the matter.
