Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Octobtr 2, 1974 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Quebec singer seeking stardom By PAUL GESSELL MONTREAL (CP) Scrape together a few thousand dollars, find a singer you believe has talent and voila, a producer has a new Quebec recording artist aiming at stardom. For Quebec Francophones, the pop music scene is peopled by many flash-in-the- pan singers who razzle-dazzle their audiences with singles and then return to obscurity. Yves Vincent and Stephen Wallack, who formed the record company Vibration so Stephen's sister June could have a label to record on, are determined their petite, raven-haired singer composer will not die at the bottom of a radio station's teeny-bopper music charts. "She's said Vincent. "What she says is FOR SALE! THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR An International Daily Newspaper At The CHRISTIAN SCIENCE READING ROOM Corner 12lh St. 4th Ava.s. Open 12 Noon to 2 p.m. Tues.. Thurs.. Sat. different, her voice is different." And they hope the invested in producing an upcoming single will pay off. They were forced to form 'vibration because of the difficulty in getting June, who has been travelling the Quebec nightclub circuit, onto another label. The two ambitious men behind Miss Wallack are aiming for the day when they, too, can present an album. "When we get that album together, we should have a thing like said Wallack as he surveyed the crowd of people listening to London's new releases. "We're trying to get something lined up on the said Wallack "Just think of the thousands of people who would see said Vincent. Once June gains a large Francophone audience, Vincent said, she will record in English 'If RoberJ Charlebois, the uncontested king of Quebec pop music can sing in English, why not June Wallack? "But it's much easier to start in said Vincent. "There's too much competition in English, especially from the United States and Britain."

INVENT SPORT To give the film its eye appeal, they decided to invent a sport for the people to go nutty about. In the original story (William Harrison's "Rollerball published in Esquire Magazine) the game was only sketchily outlined. Jewison decided to show it fully. So a new sport had to be invented. I watched while it was played, on a huge, bowl- shaped wooden track. There are two teams, 10 men per team. Seven of the 10 are on roller skates, three on heavily-armored motorcycles. To start the game, a cannon -fires a grapefruit-sized can- nonball. The bowl is like a gigantic roulette wheel and the ball travelling at 180 miles per hour, weighing eight hurtles around the rim of the bowl like a roulette ball. When it begins to drop, one of the men on skates picks it up. Then the fun and mayhem begins. The mail with the ball grabs hold of a bar sticking out of. the back of one of the motor- cycles. With his team-mates running interference, he speeds around the track, try- ing to stuff the ball-into his goal, built high up on the lip of the track. The opposition, of course, is trying to prevent that and anything goes. They try to crack him with their motor- cycles, hit him with their spike-studded gloves, mash him with their roller skates. Anything. And everything. That accounts for the red lights. As the game progresses, more and more players are killed, fewer and fewer are left to play the game. Jewison likens the game to the antient Roman games, where death was the after- noon's glory. Harrison says the game is a hybrid "it has elements of everything from roulette to basketball, football to the Roller Derby." "We tried to construct a game that has never been played." says Jewison. "The rules are still changing as we go along." Jewison isa Canadian, so he thinks in terms of ice hockey. He says, at the moment, ice hockey is "the most brutal sport we have." "The more brutal it gets." he says, "the bigger the audience. Last year it got to Ore point where it wasn't even hockey any more. I think that's the way sport is going." Rollerball. then, is the sport of the future if brutality is what you want. And. apparently, the fans like it. They played several exhibi- tion games here and invited thousands of Munich residents to come and watch. They caught on quickly and became WEDNESDAY NIGHT at the LEGION "The Metros and Invited If involved. They adopted one team or the other, began rooting for their favorites violently. There were cases where these "fans" of a sport that has never existed before jumped over the barrier and tried to get at some of the players. HAZARDOUS Shooting the scenes for the movie has been hazardous. The players have been recruited from the United States, England and Ger- many. They are expert skaters U.S. Roller Derby players, roller hockey players from Europe, stuntmen from all three places. Several have been injured as the game has been played. They play on a track that was specially designed to fit the Olympic Basketball Stadium (this is the place where the U.S. basketball team was robbed in its final game with the Russians in It cost to build. Why here? Jewison says a futuristic film demanded futuristic architecture, which the stadium is. They needed an oval hall and the stadium is that. too. Jewison says they had to convince the mayor of Munich and the Olympic com- mittee to let them shoot here. Jimmy Caan is the star, playing the greatest Roller- ball player of them all. It's a tough role. Even though a stand-in does the hardest skating, he does a lot. "I'd never roller skated he says. "Oh, a little when I was seven or eight, a kid in New York. I did some practicing on a flat track and then I saw this place and I nearly died." He says he's been hurt and he's been frightened during the shooting. But. bruises and all, he's sticking in there. Just like every good Rollerball player. Interest in Nazis declining ROSENHEIM.

The wispy, sweet-faced Gibson had left the show a year and a half before it went off the air, at the end of the 1972-73 season, but the impact of Laugh-In on the viewing public was so strong that Gibson seemed locked into character of the poet. This was despite the fact that he hasn't spouted his rhymes for a couple of years, "frankly, because there has been no demand for them." Gibson was one of that mad troupe of second bananas who supported the insanity of Dan Rowan and Dick Martin. A Philadelphian with a degree in drama from Catholic Univer- sity, he made a hit in 1962 with his poems on the Johnny Carson show and was invited back 25 times. He repeated the character on Laugh-In, also playing a stuffy parson on the show. He left Laugh-In after 3% years "because I didn't think I was growing." Others of the original cast also departed Goldie Hawn, Arte Johnson, Joanne Worley, Judy Came. Also later additions Lily Tomlin and Alan Sues. Only Ruth Buzzi remained with the show to the end. "I don't think any of us was Gibson remarked. "After all, we were only on- camera tor a minute sometimes seconds at a time. And we all played every kind of role." But the role of the poet clung to Gibson, hindering his efforts for versatility. He did guest appearances on variety shows and played roles in television films, but always in the same image. Then one day last year his agent told him to report for an interview with Robert Alt- Student wins MONTREAL (CP) Trapper Dan, a film directed by Christopher Windsor of Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, has won the Norman McLaren prize, top award at the sixth Canadian Student Film Festival here. The prize is accompanied by a cash award donated by Famous Players Ltd., the country-wide theatre chain. Two young Montreal film- makers took top awards in their separate categories. Joyce K. Borenstein won first prize (and for Revisted, a nostalgic science fiction animation short, while Veronika Soul won kudos in the experimental category for Tales From the Vienna Woods. In the scenario category, Frank G. Bushe of Ryerson In- stitute in Toronto took the top award with his film, Fragments.

Toronto and Halifax. man, director of M.A.S.H. When Gibson walked in the office, Altman took one look at him and remarked, "I'm so glad. I was afraid the Laugh- In image would be too strong." The director was making The Long Goodbye, a Phillip Marlowe detective yarn with Elliott Gould. He cast Gibson as a sinister psychiatrist. Altman next cast Gibson in his new movie, Nashville.
