Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 31, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 31, 1970 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 7 Glenn Ford TV Festival Erupts NEW YORK (AP) - Glenn Ford, who has made 128 feature films - half of them westerns- during his 33 years as an actor, is no stranger to the television audience that buckles into movie broadcasts. But until recently the Portneuf, Que., native resolutely ignored regular television. Suddenly this fall, the networks seem to have erupted in a veritable Ford1 festival. The conversion came about after he had 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 Bldg. 328-4095 months ago when I signed to do The Brotherhood of the Bell," Ford explained over breakfast eggs during a New York stopover. "It was a good solid script with people like Maurice Evans and Dean Jagger working with me. "Everybody had told 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 breaking the scene for closeups. In television, you shoot for 15 minutes 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 executives in Hollywood asked about a series and he agreed.

"Quite frankly, I was tired of travelling," 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. They make GLENN FORD . . . Love Affair them in Sprin, South America, Yugoslavia. That's reasonable- the real thing looks better than painted backdrops - but before 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 -and go to work 10 mir,.utes 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. Furthermore, 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 Beverly Hills Hotel. Ford apparently tackles everything with the same all-out dedication. Once he had decided to get into television, he dove Leaving Home Has Drawback Mainly Food EDMONTON (CP) - A ?ev-en-year-old girl decided to leave home and live under a friend's porch but she found that setting up a new apartment means buying a lot of groceries. She went to the corner store and tried to walk out, without paying, carrying these necessary stables: 85 paper plates, 50 packages of gum, 50 rolls of fruit candies, 24 candles, TV dinners, ice cream, cheese, milk and cookies. The storekeeper stopped her and police returned the girl to her parents.

In addition to kicking off CBS's Thurs day night movie season Ford narrated a pre-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-continental 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 be a half-hour comedy-drama about a police serg e a n t who volunteers to work with underprivileged 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 will look in another 10 years just about the way he does now and has for the last decade. His real name is Gwyllyn Ford, denoting some Welsh ancestry. 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 experienced into his early years, but really hit his film stride after the Second World War military service. Boy Committed For Murder CHILLIWACK, B.C. (CP) -A 14-year-old boy was committed here to stand trial for non-capital murder. Melvin Glen Spanton of Ha-ney, B.C. was charged following the death Aug. 23 of Karen Marie Fex, 14, of Silver Creek, B.C. The girl was found badly beaten on the bank of the Fraser River about 50 feet below the Trans - Canada Highway in Hope, 90 miles east of Vancouver. She died several hours later in hospital.

Whether it is nobler to suffer the 60-minute earlier arising of British standard time or sleep later under the traditional Greenwich mean time, that's the rub. In any case, a government white paper published Thursday dodges the slings and arrows 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 personal opinion and experience," the white paper said. "This paper does not attempt to draw any conclusions either for or against British standard time."

Robinson IF IT'S A GOOD MOVIE YOU'LL SEE IT ON CFCN-TV � CLIP THIS AD FOR FUTURE USE ^ sj Britain went to year-around daylight time-or BST-two years ago. In a survey of 7,000 persons, the white paper said, 51 per cent favored the new system, 39 per cent opposed it and 10 per cent had no preference. BST lost out in Scotland, where it would mean children going to school in the dark. ECLIPSES OCCUR Lunar eclipses occur when the orbits of the earth and moon line up approximately in the same plane, and the moon swings into a 900,000-mile shadow thrown by the earth. records, fingerprints and other data. Across the country he added, checks are being made in connection with warrants Issued last week for the arrest of five suspects in the murder of Mr. Laporte. The minister, responding to questions by former prime minister John Diefenbaker, emphasized that the 300 members of the RCMP's anti-terrorist squad are all bilingual. The question of language qualifications has been raised in criticism of the federal police efforts in the investigation. He also told Mr. Diefenbaker that the government is keeping under continual review the possibility of offering a reward for information but so far has felt there are good reasons not to do so.
