Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Wednesday, September 9, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Laughter Is Still His Business t New Godfrey Cambridge Loses 'Weight' But Not 'Wit NEW YORK (AP) "Hie "new" Godfrey Cambridge sprawled in an easy chair in a hotel lounge, drinking a diet soda and not Ihe least bit tempted by the peanuts on the table in front of him. The "new" Godfrey Cam- bridge: still husky, wide-eyed, with that impish grin carrying TODAY'S SHOW TIMES PARAMOUNT Short Subjects "Kelly's Heroes" Last Complete Show PARAMOUNT-CINEMA Short Subjects "Don't Drink (he Water" Last Complete Show COLLEGE CINEMA Short Subjects "Sleeping Beauty" Last Complete Show GREEN ACRES DRIVE-IN "Never a Dull Moment" "Fastest Guitar One Complete Show TONIGHT CFCN CHANNEL 13 P.M. COLOR PBOGBAM EVEBf SUI1DAV silent laughter across his face the face isn't so round anymore. The "trim" Godfrey Cam- down to ISO pounds from a pre- vious peak of 360. But, though he's lost his weight, he hasn't lost his wit: laughter still is his and his pleasure. 'Laugh to keep from crying" is his working motto. "I don't think anybody's attacked any- body while laughing." The peppery, animated black comic has made a show busi- ness success out of that not-so- common sense. His two current films are of a rare breed: all- black, including the director. He still gets a top fee for a night- club date or TV appearance and he recently did a television spe- cial. To Cambridge, a laugh is a laugh is a or white. Cotton Comes To Har- lem, a deetc-tive comedy, is not "to bring the races he says. "I only ask, 'Did you have fun? Go see it and have I fun.' There's nothing you see today that doesn't have a mes- you look hard enough. Even Wizard of Oz can be seen as a message film. Films now are a jom-ney through anxi- ety." Not Godfrey Cambridge films. He'll do almost anything for a joyful response from an audi- ence. Like plan a mide scene with a luscious-looking lass in Watermelon Man. Or play in whiteface. In the 1961 off-Broadway play, The Blacks, he played the char- acter of Diouf, who turns into a whits blonde wig and white-faced mask. Cam- bridge won an Obie Award for it. In the current film Waterme- lon Man, he plays a white insur- ance who wakes up one morning to find he's turned black. He doesn't consider that unu- sual film experience exceptional however.
