Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta .1974-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-7 Movie on Kennedy slayings may be controversial one By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NBA) "The Parallax View" is cer- tain to be one of the most controversial films of the year. People will certainly read things into it, things about the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and Sen. Robert Kennedy. But the man who made the film, director Alan J. states flatly that "No message was intended." The film purports to show a major conspiracy behind the assassination of a U.S. senator, a man much like Bobby Kennedy. It, therefore, gives aid and encouragement to those who have long held that the murders of John and Robert Kennedy were, in fact, conspiracies. Pakuia would like the world to know his movie is "a tall that's all. He is not, nor has he ever been, an ad- vocate of any theory about the assassinations.

I would have to classify myself as an agnostic about the conspiracy theory. SUSPICIOUS "If there is a point at all to the film, other than to enter- tain, it is simply to make everybody a little more suspicious. I like to think that when you see the film, you're a little more suspicious of the person you came in with." Inevitably, there is a com- parison, at least in terms of content, with an earlier movie, "Executive which was even more strident in its advocacy of the con- spiracy theory. There can be no comparison with the respective artistry of the films. "Parallax" is infinitely superior.) Pakula says he knew about "Executive but made a point not to read the script or see the movie. Even though "Executive Action" was released long before they were made at roughly the same time. Actually, they began shooting within a week of each other. But Pakula is a slow and painstaking workman, so his film took much longer to shoot and to edit. "I he says, "that I spend more time in the editing room than most directors spend shooting." FOURTH FILM He says he sometimes wishes he could speed himself up. He would like to make more movies "Parallax" is only his fourth film but Ms slowness mitigates that. "Where some directors can do two or three pictures a he says, "I'm lucky if I can do one in a year and a half. It's too bad because there are so many films I want to do but I can't change my habits." He's now he spends a long time in preparation, too a far out farce. He admits this is probably a reaction to the intensity of "Parallax." "Working on that he says, "I got my screws so tight that I need to loosen them and doing a far out farce is one way to do it." Canadian composer dies at 87 QUEBEC (CP) Canadian composer Leo Roy, 87, died of natural causes in hospital Monday.

Made film director Alan Pakula News ad results in reunion i EDMONTON (CP) A gov- ernment error which tore apart a family from Southampton, England, for 54 years was recently corrected by a newspaper adver- tisement. Philip Jones, 64, of Edmon- ton, and his brother Bill of Barne, Ont., were reunited in Southampton last month with four sisters they lost touch with 30 years ago. The family was separated when the father died during the First World War The British government, mis- takenly believing he had killed himself, cut off benefits to the mother, who consequently sent the boys to an orphanage. The two boys were part of a shipload of orphans sent to Canada in 1920. They remain- ed in touch with each other but contact with the sisters in England was broken by the Se- cond World War. The reunion occurred after Philip's wife Olive, placed an advertisement in a South- ampton newspaper in an ef- fort to locate her husband's family.
