Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Written By Bill Fruel Goirf Down The Road Profiles Big-City Coldness By JOAN HOWJIAN Herald Entertainment Writer Coin' Down the Moad arrived ill town Friday aighl loaded down with honors and Hie kind of critical acclaim accorded few Canadian films. Currently at the College Mall Cinema, the movie won the 1970 Elrog for host Canadian-made feature film. Its stars, Doug McGrath and Paul Bradley, were named best actors. And, last but not least, Bill Fruet, a LeUibridge born actor-turncd- writer, won the award for best screenplay.

There is no doubt about it. it is 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 Maritime-re who take off in a garishly- painted old car for the big lights and swinging 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 lie 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 bis sidekick land a bottling com- pany job, one that is superior to their previous jobs only in that it pays more money. They ogle the girls on Yongo Street, peruse store ads, lake in Toronto's old-rich sec- Jons, but none of it's for them.

Both men are laid off then jobs find the duo, now a three some with Joey's wife (Jayne sink into a bog of boredom and frustration. The nightmare peaks when the two rcb a grocery store and are forced back to the road again. Goin' Down the Road is a touching movie. It mercifully has no philosophy to expound, no explicit criticisms to make. It settles on I he lives of two Uowfl-and-oulers and watches as ihe city, in ;i revel of indif- ference, pushes them still farth- er down. What the film lacks is bite. ]t is too episodic, with no final crushing dramatic scene which could have distilled the two men's grinding frustration. As Paii! Almond did with the Gaspe Peninsula in Isabel, She- bib seems so taken with the landscape the grimy, self- congratulatory ugliness of To- liis camera dwells on it without furthering the ac- tion. What raises Com' above most films, Canadian or Am- erican, is its ring of truth. Big cities, and Toronto particular, have signs where a heart should be.

Short "Going Down The One Complete THE HAGUE (Renter) The death of Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte was cited here Friday at the opening of the IGth annual session cf the North Atlantic Assembly as an in- stance of gangsterism threaten- ing the fabric of modern soci- ety. tn his report lo the closed ses- sion of the assembly's political committee, Erik Blumenfeld, a Christian Democrat from Ham- burg, West Germany, stnted that governments must be pre- j pared to be lough. 1 "I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the fabric of society' is, in most of our countries coming under in- creasing strain, due to the oper- ations of extremist political mi- nority groups, who start as quasi-social revolutionaries, but v.'ho rapidly slide into militant gangsterism to attain their aims." Then Blumenfeld said: "The tragic death of Minister Laporte 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 slop 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 I10LYWOOD (Al'l If the film business is ailing and 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 Rewman took over as director midway in shooting. Newman-Foreman has also completed They Might Be Oiant-s, 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 Ills bonanza Butch Cassidy and Ihe Sundance Kid.

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 lo reclamation, he said "one of the most exciting pros- pects Is in the development of new water resources. The coal 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."
