Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, 15, 1972 THI LRHBRIDOI HOLALD 7 Film not obscene court decides EDMONTON (CP) Odeon Mid-Western Ltd. was acqtiit- led Ui provincial Judge's court on a charge of showing ob- scene entertainment, the movie "Without a Stitch." Judge Luclen Maynard a aid In a written judgment that de- spite Ills personal views on the "the actions of various censorship boa-ds lliroughout Canada in permitting the show- Ing of the film can be con- sidered to be representative of contemporary community standards." As a result, "the film is not obscene" within the legal defin- ition, which considers the un due exploitation of sex to be obscene. The film, passed by the Al- berta Film Censorship Board, was seized by police Feb. 1 after ft hnd nm for a week. In deciding to acquit the com- pany, Judge Maynard said, "when practically all the pro- vincial censorship boards ap- prove a film as in the case now acfore me, what better evi- dence can be presented as to .he accepted community stand- ards throughout He added, that in Ms view, permits issued by the board Mnstitue a better lest of ac- ccpable community standards "than cither the evidence of statistics ir of experts." CHIDEp GOVEHNMENT Judge Maynard chided the provincial government for pros- ecuting in a case where the product in question, the film, has been approved by another government agency. 'I feel that a prosecution un- der these circumstances is contrary to Hie basic ary principles of natural Just- ice." He said If a film Is obscene under the definitions of the Criminal Code, the provincial government "should not issue a permit lo show it In the place." Are you looking for more out of life?

YE E It's best bib and tucker for the Symphony Women's League Harvest Flair Ball at the Holi- day Inn Saturday Night. The ball heralds the new sym- phony season, is the culmina- tion of months of work by sym- phony supporters, and Is part of a year in-year out pattern of effort that keeps the symphony alive. The growth of the Lethbridge Symphony and Chorus over the years more than Justifies their existence but, defenceless as they are against Inflation, it is tough sledding. A rise in ticket costs Is against public interest and al- though more could be done by private donors there is no real alternative to government sub- sidy.

The title's a trifle condescending but Ihe motive is pure. Check your favorite record store. UPFRONT: Lois, Harry and Hugh at Holiday Inn's "Pub." Lois (Dongworih) is a tiny, striking singer with a gutsy voice that can belt out an old favorite or pull in the audience with sentimental ballad. There's solid musicianship from Hugh (electric piano and organ) and Harry (guitar vocals) .hrough the evening and the sets with Lois gain from the easy humorous rapport between the performers. Friendly kibitzing with the audience and recogni- ion of personalities doesn't hurt a bit either. HYLAND FLING: Frances Hyland, the pride of Reglna, has taken to directing of late, notably Crab Dance at the Van- couver Playhouse and The Ot- tawa Man at this summer's Len- noxviUe, Que., festival of Cana- dian plays. This fall she will be teaching at the National Theatre School In Montreal where she will also take a technical course to im- prove her directorial skills. Tuesday, September 19 it will be Hyland, the actress, when she stars with Tony Van Bridge in George Bernard Shaw's You Never Can Tell on CBC-Radio (CBR, The Shaw play was seen here at the Yates when the Allied Arts Council brought in a Uni- versity of Calgary production- The Shaw Hit with sex, free- (hinking woman, class, educa- tion and democracy, (all those marvellous words, words, words) Is 8UU lively and rele- vant and Is perfect radio fare.

Sev- eral new players make their debut. one to note is Gregory (super-beast) Walcott. The few that survive the carnage prob- ably regre It the audience certainly did. LOVERLY: Julie Andrew on for 24 weekly hours. The debut show featured lush overblown sets and some super special ef- fects mostly notably the Liza- Julie-Mary Poppins trio. Main drift was through Julie's stage and screen hits and that having been accomplished, and with the excision of some of the gimmicks, the show should set- tle down very pleasantly. Greatest asset is Alice Ghost- ley who makes the perfect (oil to the charming squeaky-clean Miss Andrews.
