The hallmark of the pro- ject appears to be excellent properties, excellent caste, excellent directors but low budgets, which mean a relatively rapid shooting schedule. They are making The Man in the Glass Booth, for example, in 25 days, Arthur Hiiler is directing the Robert Shaw play, with a cast headed by Maximilian Schell and Lois Nettleton. Schell admires the AFT project, because he says it means good casts on good See Hazel 1220 ST.

Phone 329-3000 plays, He says he would never do this part on the stage "It's too long and too tiring'' but welcomes the chance to do it on film, He is bald and bearded for the part. His leading lady, Lois Nettteton, is changed too. Her blonde hair is a few shades darker, and she is using an accent, "This is (he hardest ac- cent I've ever she says, "and I've done a lot of accents." It is so hard that she's afraid of losing it fiom day to day. So she Isn't taking any chances she's speak- ing with her accent even off camera, day and night. She's playing a Sabra (native-born Israeli) lawyer, The part was written for a man by Shaw and played by men on stage. Nobody knows why it was changed for the film and she and Killer decided that there should be just a slight accent, "I had never been to she says, "and I knew no Israelis, I had no idea of their speech patterns. From what I could fjnd out, there were many different accents in Israel." She began studying up on Israel and Israelis "I always like to immerse myself in my roles" and went to various Israeli agencies in Los Angeles. At one, she met a young Sabra girl, recently arrived for a tour of duty here, "She had just the accent I Lois says. "I got friendly with her and we spent an entire day together, I taped her and I'm copying the way she talks. From time to time, I play the tape to refresh Nobody talks much about how much money the ac- tors are making for these AFT projects, but It isn't much, Fiddler finds a voice at last HOLLYWOOD At long last, the part of Tevye in Fiddler On the Roof is in the hands or the voice of the man who was meant to do it, Robert Merrill is doing Fiddler here for the summer and it's a joy to hear those songs sung by a man with a great voice, And Merrill says that Joseph Stein, who wrote the book of Fiddler, told him when he wrote it that he had one man in mind for the part as he wrote it Robert Merrill, "He said he was afraid to approach me." Merrill says, "J might have done it, if he had, I'd turned down other Broadway shows along the way, but this is He has long said no to Broadway offers, feeling (hat one career was enough. His one career has always been grand opera. But now, with his summer free, he has come out to do Fiddler here, because it doesn't conflict with his operatic commitments. Merrill says opera in New York is in bad shape. The Metropolitan, he says, is having financial problems due to a tremen- dously high overhead. "It's near the disaster he says. "It's depressing that the richest country in the world has lo beg and borrow to keep culture going. Canada has more money for opera than we have He says the Met is starting to cui corners and he's afraid the quality of the company will suffer. George Montgomery was in town. That doesn't happen very often. Like so many actors Montgomery has turned producer and he makes his own movies Mostly, he makes them overseas in the Philip- pines, Spain, Yogoslavia. "My agent says if I'd only stick around for a Montgomery says, "he could get me a TV series But he says he can't stick around His movies are low-budget affairs and it costs less to shoot elsewhere.
