Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta lolurdqy, Oetobtr 31, 1970 THE LCTHMIDOI HESALB 7 Glenn Ford TV Festival Erupts NEW YORK (AP) Glenn Ford, who has made 128 feature films half of them during his 33 years as an actor, is no stranger to the television audience that buckles into movie broadcasts. But until re- cently the Portneuf, Que., na- tive resolutely ignored regular television. Suddenly this fall, the net- works seem to have erupted in a veritable Ford festival. The conversion came about after be bad been signed by CBS to play the lead in one of its made-for- TV film features.' "It started six or seven ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bids. 328-4095 months ago when I signed to do The Brotherhood of the Ford explained over breakfast eggs during a New York stop- over. "It was a good solid script with people like Maurice Evans and Dean Jagger working with me. "Everybody had toH me that I was going to hate the work- too much pressure, shot too fast -in five weeks instead of three or four months. As it turned out, I enjoyed the very things that bothered my friends. In theatre films, you sit around by the hour while they are making the master shot and then break- ing the scene for closeups. In television, you shoot for 15 min- utes or so, and then get on to the next thing. Anyway, it was five of the most enjoyable weeks I've ever spent working." When it was over, CBS execu- tives in Hollywood asked about series and be agreed. There was a little more to it than a simple love affair with TV techniques. "Quite frankly, I was tired of Ford admitted. "I suppose I could work in films every day in the year, but these days they don't make many films in Hollywood.

That's the real tiring looks better than aainled backdrops but be- fore this thing blew up I'd been away from home seven months out of the year. "I have a nice home and I want to live in it for a while. With this series I can stay home go to work 10 minutes away." Ford's passion for his home is unusual for an actor. A bachelor and somet h i n g of a swinger after the breakup of his long marriage to dancer Eleanor Powell, Ford designed and built most of his Beverly Hills home with his own hands. Further- more, he's a gardening nut, and may possibly be the only man who has been arrested recently for keeping chickens in his own back yard which abuts the back yard of the elegant Bev- erly Hills Hotel. Ford apparently tackles ev- erything with the same all-out dedication. Once hs had decid- ed to get into television, he dove all the way in. In addition to ticking off CBS's Thursday night movie season Ford nar- rated a prc-season documentary special, America accepted an unlikely invitation to appear in an ABC country-style music and comedy called Howdy, and even embarked on a trans-conti- nental personal appearance tour designed to hone public interest in the forthcoming Glenn Ford Show. This is still in the planning stage, and is expected to he a half-hour comedy-drama about a police serg e a n t who volun- teers to work with underprivi- leged children. Off camera, Ford is a quiet- mannered, quietly-dressed man who would not stand out in a crowd. He is one of the lucky ones, like John Wayne, whose rugged features abs orb the years like blotters and who probably mil look in another 10 years just a b o u t the way he does now and has for the last decade. His real name is GwyHyn Ford, denoting some Welsh an- cestry. He grew up in Santa Monica, but there are telltale traces of Canada in his speech although, when he's on as an actor, the pattern never surfaces. He crowded a lot of acting experi- enced into his early years, but really hit his film stride after the Second World War military service. Leaving Home Has Dratvback Mainly Food EDMONTON (CP) A fev- en-year-old girl decided to leave home and live under a friend's porch but she found that setting up a new apart- ment means buying a lot of groceries. She went to the corner store and tried to walk out, with- out paying, carrying these necessary stables: 85 paper plates, 50 packages of gum, 50 rolls of fruit candies, 24 can- dles, TV dinners, ice cream, cheese, milk and cookies. The storekeeper stopped her and police returned the girl to her parents. Boy Committed For Murder CHILLIWACK, B.C. (CP) A 14-year-old boy :was com milled here lo sland Irial for non-capilal murder.

Whether it is nobler to suf- fer the 60-minute earlier aris- ing of British standard time or sleep later under the tradi- tional Greenwich mean time, that's the rub. In any case, a government white paper published .Thurs- day dodges the slings and ar- rows of a partisan public. The white paper says a sampling shows public support for BST against GMT, but leaves the decision to Parliament. "The final decision must be ultimately a matter of per- opinion and experi- the white paper said. "This paper does not attempt to draw any conclusions either for or against British stand- ard time."
