Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 3, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta E Joan Walerfield NTERTAINMENT LYE E IIIIBIIIIIIIiliilllB! rpHE comment of Maura K. .Wedge, now rehearsing with the cast of Man of La Mancha for next Thursday's opening, that It was Ann Shcri- dJan who encouraged her to pur- sue an acting career brings warm memories of moviedom's "omph." girl of the forties. Miss Sheridan came to Holly- wood in 1933 and her brand of forthright wise-cracking humor proved that there was more to the former beauty contest win- ner than just a pretty face. Movie buffs will recall with pleasure her appearances in The Glass Key (with Alan Angels With Dirty Faces, They Drive By Night, The Man Who Came to Dinner, King's Row. For this filmgoer a special memory is of several second features, pre-riating stardom, in which Miss Sheridan appeared with a fine actor called John Lithe. They were neat, well- made "B" films, often the bet- ter half of a double bill. Miss Sheridan seems to have nad the knack of picking win- ners and backing her good ad- vice with practical assistance. Producer Ross Hunter whose movies (Airport, Pillow Talk, the "Tammy" series and other socko soporiphics) have grossed millions is another case in point. Hunter was washed-up as an actor when, after a serious illness, he found that his con- tract had not been renewed and no studio was in the market [or his acting talents. Sheridan told him to learn his trade and got liim a job as a dialogue director with Univer sal. She was a fine actress she must have been a warm 4nd wonderful woman. SHAW: If the current CBC promos are whetting your ap- petite for the Wil and Wisdom of George Bernard Shaw with Christopher Plummer and Gen- vieve Bujold be advised that it will not be carried on the local station. However before an as- sault is launched on Seven you should be aware that the time period is covered by the com' munity service KCINOVfSION. HOWEVER: Wendy Hiller, whose distinguished acting car- eer spans four decades, from a Shavian beginning in the 1930s' is the special guest star in the CBC-TV Sunday at Nine film drama, the veteran and the Lady which will be seen here Nov. 12.

It was not until 20 years later she did win the Oscar for her portrayal of the hotel manager- ess in Separate Tables. its PAST: One of the brightest notes of late summer was the successful but brief run of High River's W. 0. Mitchell's play The Devil's Instrument at the 300-seat Studio Theatre of the National Arts Centre, Ottawa. The play, about life in a Hut- terite colony, may be recalled from its presentation in CEC Radio's "stage" series of yes- teryear. Ron Harlman who several years ago directed Madwoman of Chaillot here staged the drama with an amateur cast from the Onatrio Youtheatre. The production was one of 18 regional works presented this summer by the group. FUTURE: Might it be sug- gested that The Devil's Instru- ment would make an ideal vehi- cle for director Murray Robison whose delicacy of touch has been too long absent from the local stage? There are many hard-work- ing youngsters active in Theatre for Children, delighted to be in- Mickey Spillaiie book lakeu out of circulation JACKSONVILLE, Fla.

But whoever heard of being banned in Jack- Spillane's latest book, The Erection Set, was taken out of circulation at the public library for evaluation when a self-ap- pointed, anti-smut committee complained.

STRETCH: That's what the entertainment dollar will have to do this month. The latter part of next week Musical Thea- tre's 10th anniversary produc- tion "Man of La Mancha opens at the Yates; the film version of Fiddler on the Roof will start its two week run, and Thursday and Friday Theatre One of Montreal will be on stage at the University. Before the budget bends remember that such a feast is rare enough to hang the expense. GOLDEN BOY: Robert Red- ford as The Candidate follows Goldie Hawn as "Butterflies' exits the downtown Cinema.

For the kids: And in answer to the eternal cry "there are no films for the youngsters "a Disney double bill topped by the delightful Dumbo, and the good news that is family rated and it's buck night every night for the young'uns. FOOTNOTE: The rarity of the two Peter Bogdanovich films, Last Picture Show and What's Up Doc playing side by side locally previously comment- ed on will be matched when the Israeli actor Topol matches his appearance as Tevye against the lightweight but entertaining fluff of his detective in T h c Public Eye.

The witness said "the man does not have a single shred of evidence to prove that he has been a former Japanese sol- dier."
