Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRiDCE HERALD September 5, 1973 Famous players in famous plays set Oct. 29 NOTICE of MEETING PLAYGOERS OF LETHBRIDGE A Genera! Meeting of Playgoers of. Lethbriclge will be held Tuesday, Sept. 11, 1973 7.30 p.m. at BOWMAN ARTS CENTRE for the purpose of amending the constitution and to discuss activities for the year. All Members and Prospective Members Welcome. By PAUL GARDNER New York Times Service NEW YORK "The movies can no more do masterpieces j of drama than the stage can do masterpieces of literature, so let each concern itself with what it can do best." This Messianic statement on aesthetics, issued nearly 40 years ago by the prickly critic George Jean Nathan, was dis- missed recently with a tolerant smile by Ely Landau, an en- terprising producer who will launch his American film theatre on Oct. 29. Landau created the "Play Of The Week series for education- al television and also produced the film version of Long Day's Journey Into Night, which some critics believe surpassed the stage production. His current million pro- ject has echoes of ths Famous Players in Famous Plays series of Adolph Zukor, partiarch of Paramount Pictures, who back in 1913 filmed Nazimova in A Doll's House and James O'Neill in The Count of Monte Cristo, and a strain of the once-active subscription operation of the theater guild, which sent tour- ing companies to the dinkiest towns in the days before tele- vision. Realizing that "the ex- cept for'splashy musicals, had reached a dead end, and that Hollywood studios were no long- er buying the one or two seri- ous plays each season that Broadway offered, Landau de- cided to adapt for the screen eight heavyweight drams wit all-star casts that would b shown to subscription aud ences. "If a play is filmed with dis tinguished actors, it can captur definitive performances tha millions of people might neve said Landau, who will b showing Lee Marvin in Thi Iceman Cometh, Katharine Hep- burn in A Delicate Balance and Sir Laurence Olivier in The Three Sisters. These films, and five others will be seen in 500 theatres across tire country and in Can ada. Each production will be screened monthly at two eve- ning and two matinee perform- ances. The Landau series of Famous players in famous slays also includes Alan Bates Your Local independent Grocer 642 13th St. N.

"These films are not for ev Landau insists "They are specialized picture for specialized people. I think H. L. Mencken was w r o n j when he cracked, 'no one eve: went broke underestimating the taste of the American public.'' A few days ago, Daniel Mann completed shooting the fina project, Kurt Weill's musical Lost In The Stars, with Brock Peters and Melba Moore. Other directors include Peter Hall John Frankenheimer and Tony Richardson. Filmgcers wiE pay for a subscription to the evening per- formances. The movies be shown with intermissions and subscrib- ers will jeceive programs with articles about the playwrights, directors and actors. Landau's partner is not anoth- er movie distributor or studio but the American Express Com- pany which, like Reader's Di- ;est (now co-producing with Jnited has decided to get into films. "American Express will be a major force in the subscription Landau stated. "With ts hundreds of offices and sev- eral million card-holders who'll auotmatically receive subscrip- ion forms, it has the expertise in reaching the consumer that he etudios lack."

He :lephoned Lee Marvin who had one The Iceman Cometh 15 ears ago in summer stock. He began explaining the pro- ect. Suddenly, Lee Marvin ex- itedly interrupted him with the iagthy salesman's soliloquy in lugene O'Neill's Last Chance Saloon. Then the actor asked two questions: "Where do I do it?

Tolkien, the British scholar and author who died Sunday, may be published soon from an unfinished manuscript he left, his publishers claim. The Allen and Unwin publish- ing house said the manuscript, entitled The Sibmarillion, con- sists of a series of legendary tales. "The manuscript is a spokesman said, "as large as Lord of the Rings." Rings was the trilogy of leg- ends Tolkien published nine years ago. Tolkien, recently de- scribed. The Silmarillion as a sequel to that trilogy. "At the moment the legends are all the spokesman said. 'We hope and j anticipate that Tolkien's son. Christopher, will thread them together. "In the meantime, we hope to wing out a play written in verse and some other material landed over to us about two months ago." Tolkien, who died from the ef- acts of a perforated ulcer, will be buried at Oxford on Thurs- day. He was 81. Edmonton man killed in B.C. SICAMOUS, B.C.
