Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Actress sues prisoner husband for divorce Joan Waterfield's Friday, November 15, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Entertainment eye Reynold's role in The Longest Yard great ESTES PARK, Colo. (AP) Actress Sue Lyon has filed for divorce against her husband, convicted murderer Cotton Adamson, her lawyer said Wednesday. The lawyer said their year- old marriage is "irretreviably broken." The couple was married Nov. 4, 1973 at the Colorado, state penitentiary in Canon City. At the time of the marriage Miss Lyon said she would petition the state legislature to change rules to allow conjugal visits. Her efforts were un- successful. Joseph Jenkins, Miss Lyon's lawyer, said the divorce papers were filed Tuesday in Larimer County district court in Fort Collins.

HOTEL NEXT WEEK NIGHTLY LOUNGE ENTERTAINMENT Maurice Trockstad MOONSHINE" TAVERN: He said the actress, who starred in Lolita at the age of 14, moved to the mountain resort town of Estes Park about a month ago. She had been living in Canon City and visiting Adamson regularly. ASKED A WEEK AGO Jenkins said Miss Lyon ap- proached him "about a week ago and asked me to file the divorce papers." Miss Lyon was unavailable for comment. Adamson, 34, was sentenced in 1964 to 20-to 40-year terms on convictions of second- degree murder and aggravated robbery. The couple met through a mutual friend while he was a prisoner in the Los Angeles jail in 1972. He had escaped earlier from the Colorado prison's medium security sec- tion, officials said. The 28-year-old actress was married twice previously, first to Hampton Fancher HI and then to Roland Harrison. She and Harrison had a daughter, who her lawyer said is with Miss Lyon. ESTABLISH PRIZE A Karl Boehm prize for young conductors was es- tablished by the Austrian ministry for education and the arts in honor of Boem's 80th birthday. The winner must be an Austrian and under 35. Burt Reynolds has long headed my "unfavorite actor" list, a slot long occupied by Tony Curtis. Yet Curtis survived his fan- tasy phase (The Prince Who Was a Thief, Son of Ali Baba, Black Shield of Falworth) to give superb performances in The Defiant Ones, Some Like it Hot, Sweet Smell of Success and the Boston Strangler. Right now he could use a good role and a good director. Right now Reynolds is riding in The Longest Yard with those two entities and it looks as though he will survive the Cosmopolitan centrefold, his much publicized romance with Dinah Shore and his almost indecent exposure on talk and game shows. It's a great role; Paul Crewe pro footballer and kept man who gets shoved in the slammer for pinching his mistress' car. Crewe (Reynolds) is forced to get a team together from the inmates to meet that of the guards coached by head guard Captain Knauer (Ed The bestiality of "in- side" and the brute force of the game are interwoven in a gripping conflict that gives not even a token nod to human dignity. Crewe just can't win; the guards can get the cons on and off the field; the warden (Ed- die Albert) who's backing the convicts will supply his own brand of cold vengeance if they lose. Caught in the crunch, Reynolds certainly gives his best performance to date and lays solid claim to a place in the "new breed of star fir- mament." Eddie Albert, always great, surpasses himself as an expo- nent of cold eyed menace and his scene with Reynolds as they confront each other over throwing the game is one of the best seen on the. screen this year.'" Great supporting perfor- mances too from Lauter, Jim Hampton, Bernadette Peters and Harry Caesar. But mostly a great role for Reynolds, a great directing job by Robert Aldrich and a taut realistic script by Tracy Keenan Wynn. A look back now to last week's Toronto Workshop's production of Ten Lost Years. A remarkable show that deserved a full house and there has been much regret expressed by those who miss- ed it. Which must be cold comfort for the company and Allied Arts Council, the local spon- sors.

The audience took the coffee break to buttonhole anybody who would listen to their own personal reminiscences of the Depression; "high" on memory it was hard to get them back into the theatre. But the warmth of the applause which greeted the players and the second act left no doubt about the response. As this tour closes the com- pany and Ten Lost Years will travel to London and Joan Littlewood's Theatre (where Taste of Honey and Oh, What A Lovely War debuted) across into Europe and wind up in Russia. Around town: The Folk Arts Festival should provide a fine concert this weekend. The only criticism of the show in prior years has been its length, this year a tightly knit production is promised. And a nod here to a generous spirit. Wes Stefan currently starring as Nikos in "Zorba" has taken over the emcee duties from Jim Elliot who had to bow out due to business pressure. Young Jim Green, a former student at the Jolliffe Academy and during those student days a memorable partner for Esther Murillo, now with the National Ballet has been appointed ad- ministrative director of the Saskatchewan Dance Theatre. The group is Canada's youngest professional dance company. The liveliness anticipated yearly from Christmas pan- tomime should be enhanced by Hazel Skaronski who has joined the cast of Cinderella. Hazel who scored earlier this year in Playgoers "Breath of Spring" will play a somewhat pixilated fairy godmother.
