Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD TuMdiy, October 8, 1974 Neptune lady big feature at Ice Capades Oct. 10-13 When the curtains part and the darkened arena comes to life for the mystical "Atlan- tis'" production in Ice Capades, a bikini clad Nep- tune lady is seen swimming serenely in a giant bubble. It always takes a short period of time for the audience to realize that there is a real, live girl in the bubble, not just an optical illu- sion or a movie projection. The beauty's name is Mary Pinelli, a member of the Ice Capades corps de ballet, who takes off her skates and turns swimmer for this segment of the show. She'l! be one of the -stars when the ice capades opens a seven performance run at the new Lethbridge Sportsplex Thursday night. To glide glamorously on top of the frozen surface for part of the show, and then sub- merge into the bubble for her featured spot takes some moving on Mary's part. But it's after her subaqueous number that she really has to take the plunge. Full show makeup must be touched up, consisting of false eyelashes, I Ke izza 329 5th Strwt S., Phone 329-3434 EVERY Wednesday Is 329-Sth Street S.

UNIQUE FEATURE The development of this ex- traordinary feature, the only one of its kind in North America, required some eight months of experimentation and correction to bring to the ice. Designed by Ice Capades production designer James Trit'.ipo, the- five "foot diameter bubble weighs 350 pounds when empty, and pounds when filled with water. Using a one and one half inch pump, it 'takes approx- imately one hour to fill the plexiglass bubble and 45 minutes to heat it to a comfor- table 72 degrees. In order to keep the required 436 gallons of water crystal clear, a special battery powered filter system is used. Mary's three minute routine requires that she enter the bubble four minutes before it is moved into view of the audience, and remain an extra.minute as it is moved off the ice to the backstage area. While "on she tumbles, twirls and spins in a series of graceful ballet poses, coming up on the backrolls for a breath through the eight inch air space on top. A system of lights on the bottom of the tank keeps the swimmer oriented. Without them, she would find it difficult to tell top from bottom. Singer dies IMOLA, Italy (AP) Ebe Stingnani, considered a classic mezzo-soprano, has died at age 67, her family said Monday.

S. 327-3625 Flip saves effort for TV audience LOS ANGELES (AP) "Yes, if I wanted to take all the opportunities that are open to me, I could make another million a says Flip Wilson. "But why? "What do you do with money after you have enough? I would only be prostituting my talent, and I wouldn't be giving my best effort to the audience I care most about the television audience." Wilson has a record com- pany and a television produc- tion company but says, he does most of his work in his den at home. And he avoids industry events, except for an oc- casional benefit, and declines the fortune he might earn in Las Vegas, films and concerts. "Television is my he says. "I think it is the greatest thing there is. Sure, I could go out on a weekend and play a concert before people. But I might come back tired and if I was doing a television show, I wouldn't be giving my best shot to 30 million people. "I'm not interested in films at the moment, either. You work a year and a half, two years on a movie, and if you're lucky, it will be seen by 12 million people." Wilson will appear in four NBC specials, the first appearing Oct. 18. Fellings latest movie 'Amarcord9 top rated New York Times Service NEW YORK "Amar- Federico Fellini's latest film, apparently his biggest success since "La Dolce is, says the director, about "a.tiny village with people suffocating in it, with one year representing a whole life span." In the ver- nacular of Romagna, the area of Italy that Fellini comes from, "Amarcord" means "I and this is Fellini's look back at his adolescence in the 1930's. Critics have compared the film to novels by Proust, .Balzac and Sherwood Ander- son. In New York last week, Fellini rejected all such com- parisons. "Critics are paid to do he said. "I make pictures to tell a story, to tell lies and to amuse. I don't make intellectual com- plexities about my work." Then he added, as if offering a confidence, "I make pictures because I sign a contract and they give me an advance." Surrounded by his American representative, screenwriter, interpreter and press agent, he asked, in perfect English, "Do you mind if I speak in And then proceeded to jump back and forth between languages. It was suggested that perhaps he could talk about his use of improvisation. "Improvisation is almost a way of offending a creative he said. "It's like say- ing that the people whojmt the first men on the moon were trying to make an im- provisation. I always make a script. My pictures are very scientific, mathematical, precise like an operation." Then he admitted, "my intention before saying 'ac- tion' is to await a little miracle. What you call im- provisation is waiting full of faith, hope and respect. The first three weeks the actors are left in the waiting also the producer. For two or three weeks, I am directing the pic- ture. After that, I have the feeling the picture will direct me." Fellini does not hold to the script as to a sacred relic. "It's stupid to be so fixed to what was written a year before without knowing the face of the actor, without knowing if you will fight with the producer. "Making a picture is like making a high jump into a swimming he said. "You have to breathe. You have to know you go into the water not onto the stone. But when you jump, you have to abandon yourself." Quoting from a Chinese proverb, he said he made movies "inten- tionally without intention." But in Fellini's case, he is making movies drawn from his life. "It's a world I he said, "but it's not autobiographical in an anec- dotal sense. It's not important to decide if it really happened in the life of the author. Everyone testifies about himself. We want to define things. That is our sickness. I don't believe in definitions. Sometimes I give symbols, but to say, that is real or that is fantasy I feel lost. he said, choosing bis least obviously autobiographical movie, "in a sense is autobiographical and very contemporary.
