Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta
Ex-wood carver now radio star TORONTO (CP) Charlie Panigoniak was selling wood carvings at the northern Hud- son Bay community of Rankin Inlet when he met CBC pro- ducer Doug Ward. But it wasn't so much the carvings as the 26-year-oid Eskimo's voice that Ward was interested in. Panigoniak, he had been told, was a fine singer. So the two went to the radio station in the tiny Northwest Territories community about 350 miles north of Churchill, Man., where Panigoniak, ac- companying himself on guitar, delivered a few of his songs. And that is how Panigoniak recently came to be playing and singing in a CBC studio in Toronto. His recordings will be broadcast by stations across the N.W.T.' Wearing sunglasses against the bright studio lights, Pan- igoniak talked shyly in hesi- tant English about his music, his is his and about his trip to the city. He wasn't exactly sure what it was that he liked about To- ronto, he said, but it had something to do with the size and the bustle. It was quite a change from his home at Eskimo Point (pop: 200 miles north of Churchill. Panigoniak learned to play the harmonica as a boy and progressed to guitar and ac- cordion. He and his brother-in-law, Mark Kakahmee, who is recording with him in Toron- to, have played together since 1967 when Panigoniak began writing songs. "I don't write them he said. "I make them up and they're all in my head." MA GEORGESON'S SOUTHERN STYLE FOOD TAKE OUT OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 11 A.M. to 9 P.M.

PHONE 327-3191 match the frenzied crowd re- action this East Coast Ameri- can group has always cap- tured through sheer volume. But recently this four-man barrage of sound has begun to inject musical order and stage professionalism into live per- formances and its latest album, We're an American Band, released last month, in- dicates that even in the recording studio Grand Funk has become highly sophis- ticated in its music and pro- duction. But while this, their ninth album, may lack the drive of earlier recordings, all million- sellers, a recent appearance at Varsity Stadium in Toronto combined the band's new- found sophistication with its old ear-splitting impact. Promoters regarded the two-hour show as the finest Grand Funk has ever given. Few of the fans who jammed into the stadium would disagree. The professionalism and control of the performance surprised many onlookers who had seen Grand Funk shows disintegrate into chaos in the past. Visually exciting, the group employs a complex lighting system, which includes col- ored spots and flashing stage lights, to bring the psy- chedelic atmosphere of the discotheque to the outdoor concert arena. The musicians' stage clothes are designed to com- plement the effect. Lead gui- tarist Mark Farner, wearing only tight silver trousers and waist-length hair leads the wall of sound and array of color with frenzied stage an- tics. Mel Schacher on bass, Don Brewer on drums and Craig Frost, the organist, provide an ironclad backing to Farner's ALLIED ARTS COUNCIL FALL PROGRAMME OF CLASSES All Fall Classes will commence the week of Sept. 17.

In the past, Grand Funk Railroad has been poorly re- ceived by critics. But follow- ing the concert here, radio stations were buzzine with en- thusiasm. Theatre grads staying at home MONTREAL (CHI Eastern Canadians are about to get a unique look at one of the country's most valuable theatre graduates of the National Theatre School. Traditionally. NTS grads have left the school and gone on to theatre companies of Canada, the United States. Great Britain and France. Starting Monday in Montreal, however, a group of 12 of the graduates came together in public in a new bilingual company called NTS Troupe 1. The initials stand for National Theatre School and Ecole National de Theatre. For the next seven weeks, in the Maritimes. New- foundland. Quebec and On- tario, audiences will see the troupe, made up of five French speaking and five English-speaking actors and actresses. All are more or less bilingual. For the tour, they have a program of four French, one English, and one bilingual. Two of the plays were premiered here Monday. Labiche's 19th century French farce L'Affaire de la Rue de Lourcine and a bilingual con- coction of mime, song and throwaway lines called An Ab- surd Revue for Children. L'Affaire demands classic performances and gets them particularly from Jacques Rossi as an hilarious, red- nosed chef who wakes up in a nobleman's bed and in the middle of an imagined murder. 6hot' in movies By BOB THOMAS LOS ANGELES (AP) The hottest new film director is a giant of a doctor who gave up medicine to write best-selling science fiction thrillers. Michael Crichton, who stands six-foot-nine, has his own version of how he be- came a director, "black- mail.' Crichton, 30, is both author and director of Westworld, a futuristic film that has drawn good reviews and sensational business. MGM has reported that in test engagements in Chicago, Detroit and Cleve- land Westworld earned slight- ly over million in 275 theatres. MGM, which hasn't had a winner in many months, is making cautious predictions that the film will gross million. It all conies from a film and a director that hardly anybody wanted. There was little fear and much amusement in Holly- wood when Crichton an- nounced he planned to be- come a film director. It didn't make sense that a Harvard Medical School graduate who was already a success as an author would meddle in a field he knew nothing about. But Chrichton decided to learn. He studied Robert Wise during the filming of the Crichton book. The Andro- meda Strain. He watched other directors. "But I still found it tough to get a job as a he said. "So I decided to become a director the only way I "Barry Diller (ABC film chief) wanted to buy a book I wrote under the name of John Lange, Binary. He wanted someone else to direct it, but I put a rider in the contract that the director had to be me.'' Crichton directed Binary, which was retitled Pursuit as a Movie of the Week starring Ben Gazarra, E. G. Marshall and William Windorn. It ap- peared on ABC last season and was well received. But the attitude of the stu- dios was that Crichton could not be trusted with a big fea- ture. He wrote an original script about an adult playland in the middle of the Sahara Desert and submitted it with himself as director. He tried it on ev- ery studio except Warner Brothers, which already had turned him down as director of his own book. The Ter- minal Man. MGM TAKES CHANCE Only MGM agreed to let him 3 MINERS KILLED BUDAPEST (AP) Three miners were killed Sunday in a coal mine near Komlo in southern Hungary when a rock face collapsed and buried them under tons of rubble. direct Westworld, and then only it the him was made in 30 days on a budget. "I was looking forward to letting off the fast pace of making a television he said. "But when I got on a feature I found myself work- ing even faster." Despite a complicated pro- duction involving modernistic sets, desert, and western and medieval scenes, Crichton made Westworld on budget. Yul Brynner and Richard Ben- jamin deferred their salaries in return for a share of the profits. Their future looks good right now. Crichton, who stole time during medical school to write, has turned out 15 books so far. but he admits his liter- ary output has lagged since he began directing. He hopes to remedy that. "I always wrote books that would make good movies." he said. "Now I can make the' movies without writing the books. So now I think I should write books that will make good books." As for his non-existent med- ical career, Crichton says he has no regrets. "I'm frequently glad I went through med he said. "One thing, it helped me as a film director: you get accus- tomed to having your feet hurt."
