Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD i uesday, November 12, 19.4 Burton plays Churchill in TV 'special' LONDON (AP> The first time Richard Burton met Win- ston Churchill, the great man wanted to use the actor's dressing-room toilet. "1 was playing Hamlet at the Old Vic." Burton recalls. "He came backstage during one of the intervals and said. 'My Lord Hamlet.' bowed and asked. 'May I use your la- Churchill, Britain's war- time Prime Minister, dominates Burton's life now. The Welsh born actor plays him in The Gathering Storm, a 90-minute television special fOVPrino rhnrvhilj's rtSe tO o power at the start of the Se- cond World War. It will be carried by NBC- TV in the United States on Nov. 29. and at about the same time here to mark the 100th anniversary of Churchill's birth. A co-production by the British Broadcasting Corp. and the American Hallmark Co for the tatter's Hall of Fame series, the RICHARD BURTON special was shot at Churchill's country home, Chartwell, and such other British locations as 10 Downing Street, the residence of British prime ministers.

Burton considers among the big challenges of his 25-year career. He confesses it has given him some shivers. "I don't want to do a music hall impersonation of the he said in an interview. "That would be buffoonery. You can't impersonate a man so famous and well-known to everyone as he was. "The only thing is to try and represent him." Burton, temporarily gray- haired for the part, has dubb- ed Churchill's famous voice on film four times, his best- known effort for television be- ing Winston Churchill: The Valiant Years, an ABC-TV series aired in the U.S. from 1960 to 1963. But The Gathering storm is the first time the actor actual- ly has appeared on screen as Churchill. He has researched Churchill's life in exhaustive detail, steeped himself in it to the point where "I find myself playing him even when I'm not acting." "I insisted on rehearsing for about two weeks wearing the type of clothes Churchill wore and smoking a Burton said. Burton is 48. In the televi- sion special, he plays Churchill from the ages of 62 to 67. Made up for the part, Burton bears a close resemblance to the man. His hair is slicked back to resem- ble Churchill's near-baldness, he wears a rubber halter at the back of his neck to make it look shorter, his stomach is well padded, his craggy Welsh features are smoothed out to give him Churchill's famous bulldog look. Burton gives the impression of just killing time, taking on non-stop movie com- in a coming film he plays an aging even a four- week stint at his old alma mater, Oxford, lecturing on literature. He is returning to the stage and working on writing no autobiography. He has been widely quoted in British newspapers as say- ing he is off the bottle now after years of heavy drinking. But he still likes to down a brandy or martini or two. Would he and Elizabeth Taylor ever get together again? "I expect." he said. "We are flesh of one flesh and bone of one bone. This is a tem- porary aberration. I don't know why we got divorced." That was before the an- nouncement last month of Burton's engagement.

How can they be different? By the people they use. Take Wally Warner, Assis- tant Superintendent of Transportation, Pacific Region. Wally is concerned with increasing the on-time re- liability of our freight trains.

People spurred by the fact they're part of the world's largest investor- owned transportation company. Is this the kind of thinking your firm can use?

Dick Neilsen of the Neilsen- Fems Ltd. production com- pany which produced.the series said the Tolstoy program was shot in the Soviet Union under the terms of the cultural treaty. He said the request to film was originally rejected by the Soviets until the external af- fairs department intervened and obtained permission un- der the treaty. Mr. Neilsen said the Tolstoy segment was the highlight of the series for the production crew. The Soviet state committee on television screened the film in August and agreed to broadcast it. A Third Testament was also produced in French for the CBC's French television net- work. Time-Life will distribute the series throughout the world with the exception of Ger- many, where separate dis- tribution arrangements were made.
