Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Joan Waterfield rriaay, October 12, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Forty Carats: new material modes Bows in Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau holds the bow ana is the centre of attention during his visit to the Peking Physical Culture Institute. Mrs. Trudeau stands beside at Peking her husband. This photo is from Hsinhau, the official Chinese news agency. FORTY Carats is a comedy of new maritial modes and manners from Pierre Barillet and Jean Gredy, the team that wrote Cactus Flower. On Broadway it starred Julie Harris as a middle-aged lady wooed and won by a 22-year-old lad. In the Leonard (Butterflies Are Free) Gershe screen adaptation it's Liv Ullman who succumbs to the fatal combination of ouzo, the enchantment of the Bay of Aphrodite and young Peter Latham (Edward Can love survive in the colder climate of New York. For Liv who belabours us with the fact that she is forty? Of course! Since Peter arrives, very handily, as escort for her 17-year-old daughter and a filthy-rich 47-year-old oilman turns up to square the roman- tic triangle. Who's whooing whom? The situation is piquant, ripe for brittle, delicate and very human comedy.

'Canadians are REGINA (CP) "You can cook a frog so slowly it won't even know it's being cooked." "And said Mel Hur- tig, founding member of Committee For an Indepen- dent Canada, "sums up exact- ly what's happening to our country." Mr. Hurtig, an Edmonton publisher, spoke to a small crowd of about 25 persons ol "MUSIC UNLIMITED" Playing In The YORK HOTEL Friday, Saturday Under New Management here on the problems foreign ownership. Most of his 90-minute speech dealt with what he calls the ''colonial mentality" of Canadians. "We are thinking more and more like Americans and we don't even realize it." He cited several cases as evidence. handed. Possibly because Liv Ullman is sadly mis-cast as the woman caught at a critical juncture of her life. Miss Ullman suggests at most a dewy late May in the September-March romance. Not that she doesn't work hard. But this very good actress, her style honed by Ingmar Bergman, is at odds with the material. Edward Albert and a lovely young actress Deborah Raffin too suffer from never being able to develop their roles into believable young people. But then again there's Binnie Barnes and Gene Kelly. Miss Barnes was up to her Anne of Cleve-age with Charles Laugbton in the Private Life of Henry VIII. Through the 30s she could be found sparkling as the wise cracking friend of a hundred stars. Age has not withered: she is irresistable as the scatty grandma; in the 40s as so traumatic for Liv, she provides a joyful trumpet to welcome the 60s. Likewise Gene Kelly as the weak but attractive failed husband and father. The song and dance charm, shaded by seedieness, deepends into a first rate characterization. But over all one keeps hop- ing the director will start snapping his fingers, impor- tuning his players to pick up the pace. Miss Ullman's clothes by Jean Louis are, by the way, quite gorgeous, even the Anna Karenina get-up in which she confronts Peter's parents. And that's about as heavy- handed as this critique of a movie that is a pleasant enough diversion for a hundred minutes of your movie-going time. ULLMAN: A graceful beau- ty had her first triumph (1966) in Bergman's Persona. Last seen here in The Emigrants, she's had a tough time in Hollywood up to now. Lost Horizon in which producer Ross Hunter hoped to launch her as a new Ingrid Bergman, is a bomb. Forty Carats is hardly a firecracker. To appreciate more fully her delicate talents look for her in Bergman's Cries and Whispers, scheduled to play- here in the near future. McCALLUM: Not Sandy this time, but brother Neil who has a fine acting career in England. He has been seen on Canadian TV in various im- ports, notably the Trial of the Chicago Seven, in which he played the prosecutor. Back in the 60s Neil was in Lethbridge to give brother Sandy some points on his role in the Playgoer's production of Gently Does It. Sandy, in- cidentally, won the festival best actor award for his portrayal. Now Neil has turn- ed producer with Sullivan's Law, a successful series on British Television, starring Ian Cuthbertson, last seen here as Dr. Arnold in Tom Brown's Schooldays. FESTIVALS: The Alberta Festival Committee has kept alive the one-act festival while the old regional three- act drama festival has gone down the drain in the morass that is Theatre Canada. It may be the last hope that what was excellent in the engulfed Dominion Drama Festival should endure. The start, it feels must be made again at the grass roots. Anyone interested in the crea- tion of a zone committee is asked to contact the Bowman Arts Centre. 327-2813. Paramount film Trial ends shllllS publicity LABOR CLUB Corner 2nd Ave. and 13th St. N.

Provincial Court Judge John Enns said he will give his decision Oct 26. The defendants, Odeon- Morton Theatres and United Artists of Canada, were charged with possessing and displaying an obscene film. Police seized the film May 25 after it played for two days at a Winnipeg theatre.

(Reu- ter) Filming of Paramount's sequel to the Oscar-winning movie The Godfather began here last week under conditions of secrecy worthy of the Mafia itself The lakeside set, lavish es- tate of the late industrialist Henry Kaiser, is barred to reporters and the production staff has been memoed, "keep your mouths shut." The extraordinary "no publicity" order issued last week by Paramount ex- ecutives has led to speculation that the studio is hoping to avoid stirring up the west coast crime syndicate. But Paramount spokesman Bob Goodfried denied this in Hollywood recently. "Ab- solutely untrue." he said. "The picture is going smoothly with no obstacles. If we choose not to seek publicity, we have every right to do so. That is the way we want it." He refused, however, to ad- vance any reason for the news blackout. The Paramount crew plans to spend three weeks filming at ruggedly beautiful Lake Tahoe. high in the Sierra Mountains on the California- Nevada border. Actor Al Pacino. who in the first picture took over the Carleone Mafia family on the' death of Marlon Brando, in his role as the Godfather, con- tinues as the new head of the family in the sequel. But there will be a new twist: a younger Brando will be played by actor Robert Deniro. The first Godfather film began just after the Se- cond World War, but the se- quel will flashback to 1915 when the Mafia leader played by Brando was a young man. The new film will carry the Mafia family's story up to the present. Diane Keaton and Robert Duval also have roles in the film. After Lake Tahoe, the production crew moves to Las Vegas. Los Angeles, the Caribbean. Miami. New York and finally Sicily to complete the 16 weeks of filming. The film will be released in about 18 months.
