Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tutsday, October 9, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Top conductor decided early on music career WASHINGTON (AP) James DePriest, 37, has con- ducted all the top U.S. sym- phony orchestras and many in Europe, but his career is not without obstacles. "I decided on music as a ca- reer and conducting particu- larly when I was already in my he said "I think things have gone exceedingly well." At about the time DePriest, one of a handful of black con- ductors, made his decision on a career, he was stricken with polio and spent a year recuperating, wondering whether he'd ever be able to stand again. Today he walks with the aid of two metal braces and an arm crutch and conducts sitting on a high stool, his forceful arm movements in no way hindered by the paralysis of his legs. DePriest says of his progress so far, "luck is a very large part of it FILLED IN FOR OTHERS On half-a-dozen occasions, Town Country Music NOW ON THE AIR SPORTS NEWS a.m., a.m., p.m. and p.m. with BRENT SEELY WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY It's a grubby, violent, dangerous world.

Befriended by conductors Leonard Bernstein and Antal Dorati, he has had the contin- uing support of his aunt, singer Marina Anderson. DePriest on Nov. 12 will start his third season as associate conductor of Washington's National Symphony, a post to which Dorati named him. He says he took the post with some reservations, since an associate conductor often is given only chores the top man doesn't want Dorati, however, has given DePriest direction of the orchestra's summer season and the oppor- tunity to conduct four weeks of concerts each season. DePriest was-a pre-law stu- dent at the University of Pennsylvania and might have gone on to law school, but decided against a legal career "at a time when Iliad no idea what I wanted to do." He did some film-making and dabbled in mass commu- nications for a year, then after six months in the military, he entered the Philadelphia Con- servatory in his home town OFFERED TOUR He played piano in his own jazz quartet, did some arrangements for Stan Ken- ton, then was offered a state department tour, teaching and lecturing in the Far East He consulted Bernstein, to whom Miss Anderson had in- troduced him Bernstein, he recalls, told him: "Go on the tour You'll be able'to do all the things you have been doing, and you'll find the one thing you cannot do without." It was in Bangkok in 1961 that he was invited to conduct a symphony, and, he says, "I stood in front of that orchestra and it was an absolute revela- though I had been do- ing it in my sleep all my Me." It also was in Bangkok that polio struck, followed by a year recuperating and study- ing scores and records.

It's what he describes as an "aura horror" movie It is based on scientific (of at least pseudo scientific) fact that every living thing gives off an aura which can be photographed. Kirlian photography, developed in Russia, are the basis of this concept. "The Kirlian Force" takes this idea one step beyond science. What if the aura could be willed to act on its own? How does that grab you? From that idea, Rustam and his team have dreamed up a spooky story about a man Jim Button who sits quietly in his living room while his aura rushes around town knocking off his enemies. This is a major step in Jim Button's career He's the man Hollywood always stuck in frothy little comedies and he always did well by them. "I was ,always the comedy he says, "but Hollywood would never let me do anything serious. Now I even get to do a kind of Dorian Grey finish all the sins my aura has committed settle on my face at the end." The film ends with a nice horror touch As Button's body is being cremated, his aura is still off doing dirty deeds But there's one more switheroo which you'll have to see the picture-to find out. I'll tell you, however, that the way is left open to a se- quel Rustam is an Iraqi, who grew up wanting to get into the film business and, in par- ticular, the Hollywood film business. When he was 20, he emigrated to the United States, settled in Chicago and studied film He got into the" film laboratory business and prospered some more.

Shirt tails showing, he is sprawled out in unbuttoned comfort on a divan in one of the Kennedy Centre offices rather like a plumber taking a breather from a nasty tangle of gurgling pipes. He gives the distinct im- pression he carries an over- stuffed lunch pail, whistles on the job, and has a standing after work engagement at the local pub, where he regales his mates with slight- ly bawdy anecdotes. "Well, I certainly don't con- sider myself an he says, accentuating the second syllable as he hoists himself into a semi recumbent position "I'm a craftsman, cut from a family of mechanical engineers and foundry workers. My father was a Scotch Presbyterian and my mother was a Jewish refugee. The family combined the worst of all possible worlds for a career in the English theatre. I should have been an engineer myself. That's what my father wanted I know now I was wrong to revolt against him." Dunlop is doing too well these days to throw over his career for a monkey wrench and overalls, although he takes proletarian delight in entertaining the notion. His production of Meliere's imported from the Young Vic, bailed out New York's Circle In The Square for four sell out months this summer, and has since moved on to a regular Broadway house Currently, he's in the thick of final rehearsals for "Sherlock a turn of the century concoction by American Actor William Gillette, who proved so pop- ular in the title role that he was still playing it at age 74. "I'd just as soon not be in- volved with theatre that is supposedly 'heavyweight.' I can't be bothered with the ar- Dunlop says, coloring the word even more the se- cond time around "A lot of theatre companies behave as if they're there for their own benefit, not an audience's." Dunlop is an unabashed pop- ulanzer and he makes no bones about it His first com- pany, the Picolo, operated un- der a circus tent made out of shrouding and was a perky lit- tle success in Manchester, un- til the local Conservative club repossessed the locale He followed that up in London with the Pop theatre, so nam- ed because of its cheeky approach to the classics, and because the company featured a lot of pop singers paramount Now Showing at and p.m. FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT ZANY BARBRA DOES IT AGAIN Bartora Streisand FAMILY Sake" paramount cinema TONIGHT and WEDNESDAY at and p.m. RESTRICTED ADULT India Bttl Tradition of Sopkistitttu) British Comdy Show Times Tuesday, October 8 PARAMOUNT THEATRE Short Subjects 7 00 9 05 FOR PETE'S SAKE 735 945 LAST COMPLETE SHOW 9 05 FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT PARAMOUNT CINEMA Short Subjects 7 15 9 20 NOT NOW DARLING 740 9.45 LAST COMPLETE SHOW 9 05 RESTRICTED ADULT COLLEGE CINEMA Short Subjects 7.00900 DIRTY MARY CRAZY LARRY 9 as LAST COMPLETE SHOW. 9 00 ADULT NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN GREEN ACRES DRIVE IN CLOSED MONDAY AND TUESDAY Leslie Phillips Joan Sims college cinema TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY at and p.m. ADULT.
