Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Written By Bill Fmet Coin5 Down The Road Profiles Big-City Coldness By JOAN KOWiMAN Herald Entertainment Writer Down the Koad arrived in town Friday night loaded down with honors and the kind of critical acclaim accorded few Canadian films. Currently at the College Mall Cinema, the movie won the 1970 Etrog for best Canadian-made feature film. Its stars, Doug McGrath and Paul Bradley, were named best actors. And, last but not least, Bill Fruet, a Lethbridge born actor-turned- writer, won the award for best screenplay.

There is no doubt about it. it i< a good film, perhaps the finest produced so far in Canada. Al- though it lacks the sleekness, of American films in its techni- cal side, it has a strong spine of integrity. But a great film it isn't. McGrath and Bradley are Pete and Joey, two Maritimcrs who take off in a garishly- painted old car for the big lights and swinginc life of Toronto. Upon their arrival, Pete, en- cumbered ith dreams far past his capacity to fulfil, tries for a job at an ad agency because he liked to watch the TV com- mercials back home. The agen- cy's personnel director, astound- ed at Pete's naivety, suggests he return to school or to the Mari- times. Eventually both Pete and his sidekick land a bottling com- pany job, one that is superior to their previous jobs only hi that it pays more mousy. They ogle the girls on Yonge Street, peruse store ads, take rides in Toronto's old-rich sec- tions, but none of it's for them.

Joey gets a girlfriend preg- nant and they enter into a pointless marriage. Both men are laid off their jobs and the duo. now a three- some with Joey's wife (Jaync sink into a bog of boredom and frustration. Tlie nightmare peaks when the two rch a grocery store and are forced back to the road again. Coin' Down (lie Road is a touching movie. It mercifully has no philosophy to expound, no explicit crilici'srns lo make. It settles on the lives of two down-and-outcrs and watches as the city, in a revel of indif- ference, pushes Ihem slill farth- er down. What the film lacks is bite. It is too episodic, with no final crushing dramatic scene which could have distilled the two men's grinding frustration. As Pan! Almond did with the Gaspe Peninsula in Isabel, She- bib seems so taken with the landscape the grimy, self- congratulatory ugliness of To- his camera dwells on it without furthering the ac- :ion. What raises Com' above most films, Canadian or Am- erican, is its ring of truth. Big cities, and Toronto in )articular, have foreclosure signs where a heart should be. Toronto accepts no lOUs, not from its own and certainly not from a Maritimer.

In his report lo Ihe closed ses- sion of the assembly's political committee, Erik Blumenfeld, a Christian Democrat from Ham- burg, West Germany, stated that governments must be pre- pared to he tough. "I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the fabric of society' is, in most of oar countries coming under in- creasing strain, due to the oper- ations of extremist political mi- nority groups, who start as quasi-social revolutionaries, but who rapidly slide into militant gangsterism to attain their aims." Then Blumenfeld said: "The tragic death of Minister Laporlfi of the Quebec govern- ment is only one recent instance of a whole series of violent and illegal actions of this kind. Gov- ernments must be prepared to be tough with militant groups that act outside the law and they must act soon enough and firmly enough to put a stop to their illegal activities at the earliest is the moment when initial threats are made, since to wait for violence itself is to be too late." Predicts Hike In Montana Coal Production BILLINGS, Mont. Montana should be producing 20 million tons of coal annually within 10 years. This is the prediction of. Ernest Thurlow, mineral devel- opment manager for the Bur- lington Northern railway. He said Montana has at least 22 billion tons of surface coal. As to reclamation, he said "one of the most exciting pros- pects is in the development of new water resources. The cool seams generally are aquifers and therefore, when exposed, will furnish water to fill res- ervoirs that will be planned as part of the reclaimed land- scape after mining." YOUR PHILIPS DEALER WITH SERVICE RADIO and TV 302 13th SI. N. Movie Column Film Business Not Dead HOLYWOOD (Al'l If the film business is ailing and Uie star system is dead, somebody forgot lo tell Paul Newman. The actor's company, New- man-Foreman, with producer John Foreman, has a new film in release, WUSA, and is com- pleting another one. Sometimes a Great Notion, which Newman took over as director midway in shooting. Newman-Foreman has also completed They Might Be starring George C. Scott and Joanne Woodward, and Puzzle of a Downfall Child with Faye Dunaway. There can be no doubt about the firm's sol- vency, since it shares in the bonanza Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The Newman office at Univer- sal was abuzz with activity, in- cluding Ihe First Artists Co. which he formed wilh Barbra Streisand and Sidney "No immediate plans: we're waiting until our projects de- velop." Newman took a lunch break from his cutting of Some- times a Great Notion to discuss the state cf the industry. WANT CHEAP FLICKS "All Ihis talk about making another Easy Rider is so much nonsense, said the actor. "Nat- urally the studios want you to make pictures cheaply. But it can't always be done. "I've never made a picture for million, but if I thought it was necessary, I would. 'The important thing is to make pictures any price. I can save money; I made Rachel, Rachel for and the latest gross on that picture is million.' He pointed out that Some- Jmes a Great Notion was budg- eted at million despite an important cast e w m a n, Henry Fonda, Lee Oregon location. with six days of retakes ai a hiatus when he broke an .inkle, the film only cost million. Gasoline Presents Hazard WASHINGTON (API New evidence from experiments with mice suggests humans may bo faced with a child-bearing haz- ard from breathing a chemical used as an additive to leaded gasoline, a Massachusetts re- searcher reports. Dr. Samuel S. Epstein of (ha Childrcns Cancer II e s e a r c h Foundation in Boston said the chemical, trimethyl phosphate, is used in leaded gasoline at the rale of one gram per gallon "lo stop spark-plug fouling by the but that some of it is released, unburned, through a motor car's exhaust. H.e told a conference spon- sored by the National Research Council and several other agen- cies that when male mice re- ceived the chemical and were mated with untreated females, the embryoes produced quickly died in the mothers' wombs. The researcher said while the chemical had so far been ad- ministered to mice only by injections or orally, there's ''a good likelihood" that similar findings will be aclueved in ex- periments now being planned wherein the mice will inhale the chemical. "But of course, I didn't take any money for the Newman said. "That's what the companies want nowadays foi us to take part of the risk by working for less money. "I'm perfectly willing to do that, is the important have to make somo sacrifice, loo. The comp imcs have to give a lillle on Iheir side." WUSA cost million, which Newman said was "loo much. But he is more enthusiastic about the picture than anything he has done in years. "I was so high on (his film and what it has to say that four months ago I made a decision to put my name on it as produ- he said. "That was some- thing I hadn't done on Butch or any of the other productions 1 have been associated with." The tide WUSA comes from its Soulhcrn radio station run by a superpatriot.
