Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Friday, November 22, 1974 Hoffman, Redford star in movie on Watergate WASHINGTON (Reuter) Dustin Hoffman said Thurs- day he will star with Robert Redford as Washington Post reporters in the movie version of the Watergate in- vestigation. Hoffman told the national press club he will play Carl Benstein and Redford will be Bob Woodard in the film All the President's Men based on the best selling book of the same name by the two. reporters. Woodward and Benstein covered the Watergate story from its beginning and were the first reporters to link the break-in at Democratic head- quarters with top officials of the Nixon administration. Redford owns the movie rights to the book. Joan Waterfield's.. Entertainment eye Money no movie quality guarantee As Mr. Micawber said, "In- come twenty pounds, expen- diture nineteen, nineteen, six result: happiness; expen- diture twenty pounds, ought six result: misery." Which Dickensian wisdom could well be applied to the financial excesses found in film and television; quality TROJAN Is Coming has never been guaranteed by the pound or dollar. Indeed some of the finest work to come out of Hollywood have been the low- budget certainly the major best in television has been produced when the money factor was low, the quality of talent and creativi- ty high. That's why those millions paid by NBC for The God- father still and will continue to rankle. Still an interesting contrast was presented between the film as shown here in Canada and its American "world premiere." Both networks carried the disclaimer that the material shown might be disturbing to some. But NBC went to ex- treme lengths to ensure that no-one would be offended, to the extent that even a con- ciliatory note to the Mafia was sounded. There was no apology of course for the inde- cent cost of the thing. An interesting contrast in editing too. The American network excised much of the violence and even the brief upper nudity of Michael's bride. No so in Canada. Everything was there; Son- ny's shattering death, the last kick through the windscreen as Carlo was garrotted. Maybe we're tougher up here. But having jumped the gun on NBC's the question remains: How much did that cost? And was it worth it? But back to gentler climes, to Dickens. The gusto in characteriza- tion and plotweaving of the prolific Charles have made his novels ideal cinema material. Most filmed has been A Christmas Carol with Oliver Twist running a close second The latter survived successfully into a musical version, the former had only indifferent success in transi- tion despite its star Albert Finney. The Old Curiosity Shop will be a musical too, re-titled Quilp with Anthony Newley starring. David Copperfield is remembered best in the splen- did George Cukor (1934) ver- sion and Tale of Two Cities if nothing else provided meat for impersonators in Ronald Colman's classic speech as he mounted to the guillotine. Now there's a new version of Great Expectations (David Lean did it magnificently in 1946) primarily intended for American television and you can see it tonight (7 p.m. NOW dial anyone in Alberta for fifty cents or less Friday midnight to 6 a.m. Monday FRIDAY MIDNIGHT...

Special 6-month rale plan to April 28.1975. Channel 9) Certainly this edition has called on the cream of Bi.tish actors; Michael York (Cabaret, The Three Musketeers) as Pip; Sara Miles as Es'teDa. There's James Mason, Margaret Leighton, Robert Morley, Anthony Quayle. And it's all timed just right for family viewing. More Dickens; this time in the University of Lethbridge Readers Theatre presentation of A Christmas Carol at the Library Dec. 1 and 6 A nice example of town and gown co-operation and what could be the beginning of a charming Christmas tradition in this city. Back to television and more for family sharing in the charming Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. A delightful adaptation of the book by Roald Dahl (hus- band of Patricia Neal) it was no great box office success, possibly because parents tend to send the kids to "childrens' movies" but rarely share them with them. Transferred to the smaller screen it should delight all ages and offer an opportunity to appreciate the great talent of the under-rated Gene Wilder. If you're a Julie Andrews fan, and who could dislike the delectable Miss Andrews, you'll want to catch Julie and Jackie "How Sweet It is" (Wednesday, Ch. 7, 6 p.m.) There's no greater pleasure than watching two professionals do what they do best and Jackie Gleason and Julie Andrews do just that, superbly, in this variety special filmed in London. It's an old-fashioned music hall format with which Julie is completely at home: after all she toured in her early years with her stepfather Ted Andrews and her mother. The tribute to Gleason works just as well with the nostalgia never descending to the maudlin A first-rate show A super television week. And if you have seen Zorba and The Longest Yard there's no reason not to stay home, put up your feet and enjoy Richard Burton as Churchill, Anne Bancroft in a special (her last in 1970 won an Em- the estimable Stanley Baker as Robinson Crusoe, a re-showing of That Certain Summer with splendid perfor- mances from Hal Holbrook and Martin Sheen, a special on Monsters and every week Malcolm Muggeridge.

Expo '74 was loser SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Expo 74 may be a loser but the city that hosted more than five million visitors will come out ahead, the general manager of the recently concluded world's fair said today. "It's becornming more and more evident a deficit will be experienced, but this is in- significant compared to the offsetting economic advan- tages of the taxes and the million economic Peter Spurney said. Mr. Spurney said the Expo Corp's undetermined deficit "would be made up by the guarantors who pledged million on which the banks loaned for Expo." If Expo can't repay the full sum. he explained, "the banks call the guarantors." Spacecraft Hearing Jupiter MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.
