An abundance of gypsy extras willing to work 10 hours a day for plus an hour for overtime vs. daily for Hollywood extras. Latest of the companies to visit Almeria is Harry Spikes, a western starring Lee Marvin. Director Richard Fleischer ex- plains: "This is a 'traveling western' in which the characters move from one town to another. It would be impossible to make in the United States, because the building of western sets would be prohibitive. There is one in Tucson, Arizona but that's about all. "Here in Almeria, the west- ern sets are all standing. And hey are not just building fronts, either. I can move right into the bars and banks and shoot the interiors." Several key personnel ot Harry Spikes are English: the rest are workers from Madrid studios. Lee Marvin, making his first film in Spain, com- mented that the locals are just as efficient as Hollywood crews "and they get the work done without making a big thing of it." Filming in Almeria has its drawbacks, admitted Fleis- j cher. Dies at Albert Campbell, 63, former chairman of Metro- politan Toronto, died late this week.

HONG KONG (Reuter) The death of Chinese-American film star Bruce Lee in July has cre- ated a vacuum in the lucrative film industry here which loca] studios will find hard to fill. Lee, whose swashbuckling epics have become known as "eastern died of an undisclosed illness. He was only 32, and on the threshold of in- ternational fame. Kaymond Chow, head of the oolden Harvest Co. and Lee's >usiness partner, described his death as a big loss to the in- dustry. Run Run Shaw, president of lie Shaw Brothers Organiza- ion, Hong Kong's biggest pro- duction unit, bplieves one of several actors here will fill .he vacuum in due course. But ic declines to speculate on who t might be. Of the leading martial arts actors in Hong Kong and Tai- wan, Wang Yu, Chen Sin, Chen Kuan-tai, David Chiang and Ti Lung are probably the most eli- gible candidates to compete for the top spot. They all have talent and have starred in the highly profitable blood-and-thunder epics, popu- lar throughout Southeast Asia. Among these actors, Wang Yu stands out as the No. 1 con- tender. A black belt in karate, Wang was the first Chinese ac- tor to star in a film which grossed over one million Hong Kong dollars The- One-armed He has wide film experience and excels in the Chinese mar- tial arts, although he never matched Bruce Lee's popular- ity here. If Wang's karate and martial arts cannot please Lee's fans, they may turn to Chen Sin and Chen Kuan-tai, who are tradi- tional Chinese boxers.
