Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Favorite play draws big crowd TORONTO (CP) Georges Bizet's Carmen, a 99 year eld favorite, kindled its familiar fires Wednesday as the Canadian Opera Company presented the third production of its five week Toronto season. A near capacity audience at the seat O'Keefe Centre broke into frequent applause for title role star Mignon Dunn, a New York mezzo soprano. Singing opposite her in the tenor role of Don Jose was Er- manno Mauro, an Edmonton trained singer.

Black Windmill is a fair enough espionage melodrama a British effort that holds up well to the last thirty or so minutes. The cast is excellent, with Michael Caine as an agent whose son is kidnapped by a fellow spy. For Caine this is a potboiler, a far cry from the challenge of his great work in Sleuth. White Dawn due to exit Saturday could be your best movie buy with Timothy Bot- toms, Warren Gates and Lou Gossett as three whalers stranded from their ship and rescued by Eskimos. In introducing "civilation" to their rescuers they are ul- timately destroyed. A fine adaptation of the James Houston novel that perhaps tries a little too hard. The adult rating, because of a very limited nudity precludes youngsters attending a film that would give them some in- sight into the Eskimo culture. Too bad.

The Waltons, Sun- day last had a hard time holding interest with the in- volvement with the backwoods members of the family. But nothing was lost in the superb performance of Beulah Bondi as the matriach of the mountain clan. The 84 year old Miss Bondi who came to films from the stage in 1932 has always specialized in elderly ladies, both symapthetic and grumpy. This performance should make her a hot contender for Emmy recognition. As should Hal Holbrook's Lincoln. An unscheduled offering in this week's television, the portrayal was the first of six hour long specials made for NBC under the umbrella title of Sand- burg's Abraham Lincoln. The specials, three of which are to be aired this season, three in 1975 76 are based on Carl Sandburg's Pulitzer Prize winning group of books on the Civil War President. Watch for them. All sold out. The Charlottetown Festival production of Anne of Green Gables brought here by the Allied Arts Council to play the Yates Saturday Sept 28. The ready sale of tickets is a pleasing surprise. A disap- pointment too for the many who would like to see the show but are too late at the box of- fice. Which serves to make a point. In the main the local theatre goer is a last minute ticket buyer. So sponsors are often left on the day of the per- formance with the realization that they have a slim chance of breaking even. The "we'll get our tickets at the door" thinking is a common local syndrome. A little hustle would ensure the seat of your choice and relieve a lot of ten- sion attending the gamble of presenting the performing arts. And hustle you will have to if you are going to snag the last few tickets for the White Heather Concert which will pack the Paramount Tuesday. Better move before the S.R.O. notice goes up for the Alex- ander Brothers and their tartan crew. In comparison with the highly painted and supported doxy that is American television, the Canadian networks are like the little girl with the curl on her forehead and with the behavioural range of very, very good to horrid.

The psychology part may be questionable, but the drama is excellent and should be greatly supportive of Cana- dian theatre. This week Stratford Festival players were on stage; next week the show travels to Charlottetown (and it's good thinking to pull in our regional theatres) for ex- cerpts from Anne of Green Gables, Johnny Belinda and Kronborg 1582.

'White House wanted Nixon to tell all' NEW YORK (AP) The Times says that during negotiations over President Nixon's pardon White House lawyers unsuccessfully tried to persuade Nixon to make a full statement on his role in Watergate. Quoting what it described as a reliable source, the news- paper says in a dispatch from San Clemerite, Calif.: "Mr. Nixon was asked by President Ford's lawyers to make what the former president regarded as 'a public confession of criminal guilt." He angrily refused, and subsequent negotiations between the two camps caused a delay in reaching an agreement on the eventual pardon.'' However, the newspaper says that John Hushen, deputy White House press secretary, said in Washington Monday night that the White House did not seek a statement from Nixon in conjunction with his pardon. "There was no quid pro quo regarding the Hushen is quoted in The Times. "There were no re- quests or demands that he issue a statement. There was no negotiation and no delay." The Times says the negotia- tions began last Thursday at Nixon's residence in San Cle- mente. Participating were Ford's representative. Benton Becker: Nixon's lawyer. Her- bert Miller, and Ronald Ziegler. a Nixon adviser and. former White House press secretary. The newspaper says the White House wanted a full statement from Nixon to satisfy Congress and allow Ford to grant the pardon without major criticism. Nix- on is reported to have joined the talks and refused. But The Times says a com- promise was reached last Saturday night after a series of telephone calls between Washington and Califor- nia. Tax evader receives pardon NEW YORK A fed- eral judge, citing President Ford's pardon of former president Richard Nixon, cancelled on Thursday a 30- day prison sentence he had given a tax evader four days before the pardon. Judge Marvin Frankel left standing a fine and ear's probation for Craig Braun. 35, a designer of record albwn jackets who ad- mitted evading in tax- es in 1967. Acting on a defence motion to reconsider the sentence in view of the Nixon pardon. Frankci agreed that Braun's pnson sentence "cannot josUy be executed." He nullified his order that Braan surrender next Monday to start serving the unson term. ELRANCHO THE OUTRIDER TAVERN PRESENTS STORMIN SWEET RAIN in the..
