Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12-THE L.ETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, September 27, 1974 Pianist to try modern ballet MONTREAL (CP) The fingers of Pierre Nadeau have pounded the keyboard with French-Canadian rock, titillated the audiences of international jazz and some day will be wowing the con- noisseurs of ballet. For "le gros star of the Ville Emard Blues Bantf isidered one of Canada's greatest jazz groups, no project is too dif- ficult, providing his musical genius can be taxed. CFCN Announcement Mr. Mike Scott Mr. E. W. Chapman. Pres- ident of CFCN Television, 'is pleased to announce the ap- pointment of Mr. Mike Scott as Programming and Operations Supervisor at CFCN Television, Lethbridge. Mr. Scott moves into his new position with nine (9) years of Broadcasting experience in both Radio and Television of which the last four (4) years have been at CFCN-Television in Lethbridge. Mike was recently chosen by his peers as the Lethbridge Media Representative to sit on the Public Relations Com- mittee of the 1975 Canada Winter Games Society. He is also an active member of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Scott will still con- tinue with his sports in- volvement, both on air and in the community and looks forward to serving the community in his new position. Pierre was former backup man for Quebec superstar Robert Charlebois, the singer who wen Paris audiences with a combination of rock-edged crooning and a Montreal Canadiens hockey sweater. And before that, Nadeau de- lighted the teeny-bopper set by playing at dance halls with a band called the Vikings. Now he is considering a res- pite from rock and jazz to try his hand at music for a modern ballet. It is not out of character, since Nadeau is working towards his doctorate in music at the University of Montreal. "What good is a doctorate in music going to do me now? I just want to reach that point. Whatever I do, I like to reach the highest point. It's like making love." Pierre confided in an inter- view that aside from his son Andre, his first love is com- posing rather than perfor- ming. He favors the romantic composers and said they have influenced the way he writes jazz. Chopin "played blues, you know, but they just didn't call it blues then." As for the 15-member Ville Emard Blues Band, Pierre is extremely confident. "We started in August of last year and now we're the No. 1 band in Quebec.

Don't Delay Act Now! Getting into the act A spectator joins in Thursday outside Borough Hall in Brooklyn as Angela Scarpa performs a belly dance during lunch event sponsored by the Brooklyn Arts and Cultural Association. Still active at 74 Film stunt man defies age LOS ANGELES (AP) Harvey Parry is oldest stunt man still working in films. "Of course I don't do the heavy stuff any says Parry, slim and muscular from almost daily workouts in the gym. "But I just did some falls and car work in that Universal picture, Earthquake. "Turning over a car is pret- ty easy nowadays. You've got torsion bars, steel roll bars, seat harnesses, helmets and all kinds of things to protect you. "In the old days it was different. All you had was a rope around your waist. You carried a knife to cut the rope in case you had to get out of the car in a hurry." "The pay is different, from to for a car turnover today versus in the 1920s." He intends to keep working as long as he can. "Maybe it's my Scotch he ex- plained. "When I get a movie location, I take my wife along and it makes a great vacation for us." Parry started falling early, as a tumbler and champion diver in his home town of San Francisco. He became a cir- cus aerialist and clown, then a family friend got him a job at Fox studio in 1919. "I started out as a prop Parry recalled, "but soon I was doing stunts. In those days everybody did them, including the director, and nobody got paid extra." Parry displayed photographs of some of his more spectacular stunts. One was a racing car crash in On the Beach, in which his auto appears engulfed in flames. He explained that the fire was caused by a gallon of gasoline in a container on the side of the car. The flames flashed over quickly. Another spectacular was in the 1962 How the West Was Won, in which Parry and two other stunt men fell in a crashing water tower into a buffalo stampede. The bulldozer pushing over the tower backed off too soon, and all three men were in- jured. Parry with a broken heel. Standing ovation given pipe bands NEW YORK (CP) For the first time, the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and the Welsh Guards Band are touring North America together. They started in Providence, R.I., a week ago and wind up in Boston Dec. 8. In the process, they will appear in 11 Canadian cities starting Thursday night at the Forum in Montreal. The Argylls and the Guards band received standing ovations at New York's Madison Square Garden for their performances during the weekend. The pomp and splendor highlighted by precision marching, pipers, drummers and dancers, and the ability of the band to play everything from the Old Grey Mare to Jesus Christ Superstar, brought the house down. After the Montreal appearance, the band will per- form Friday in Ottawa's National Arts Centre and Saturday at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto. The remainder of the Cana- dian schedule: Hamilton Sept. 29. London Oct. 2, Winnipeg Oct. 16, Saskatoon Oct. 17, Ed- monton Oct. 19, Calgary Oct. 20, Victoria Oct. 26, and Van- couver Oct. 27. "But fortunately the buffalo separated and we didn't fall on he added cheer- fully. Parry, who broke his back in 1935, falling a couple of feet and landing on a wood block, says he has been going easy on the riskier stunts. But just the other day he was at it again, playing a drunk staggering through heavy traffic in The Front Page. Symphony announces first concert The Lethbridge Symphony Association has announced its concert series for the 1974-75 season following the first meeting of its board of direc- tors this week. The symphony will present its first concert Dec. 2 in Lethbridge under the direc- tion of Lucien Needham.

Canadian films appreciated SORRENTO (AFP) The Italian press and public are showing appreciation for Canadian films being shown in this year's Sorrento Inter- national Film Festival. An article in the newspaper II Giornale d'ltalie described Canadian cinema as "that un- It said the true value of Canada's "youthful commer- cial cinema" had not been recognized here and that the festival was filling this gap. The festival, which opened Sept. 20 and will end Sept. 28 with the presentation of Golden Mermaid awards, has 11 Canadian films in com- petition, six in French and five in English. So far, enthusiastic audiences have applauded Claude Jutra's Kamouraska, Donald Shebib's Between Friends, Jean-Pierre Lefebvre's Les Dernieres Fiancailles, Peter Pearson's Paperback Hero, Gilles Carles' La Mort d'Un Buckeron, John Wright's The Visitor, Paul Almond's Act of the Heart and Marcel Carriere's OK, La Liberte. Still to be viewed are Denys Arcand's Rejeanne Padovani, Andre Forcier's Bar Salon and Ted Kotcheff's The Appren- ticeship of Duddy Kravitz. The newspaper 1'Unite said there were "tangible differences" between Canada's English language films, not only in the terms of the language difference com- ing "from two different cultural traditions, but also the content. French language films were "more sociologically and politically while the films in English were "more frivolous and more The newspaper Paese Sera said French language film "is without doubt more ac- tual, richer and more It was the aggressiveness of someone colonized by an English speaking majority which ran things but was always apt to appear to be an appendage of the United States, the paper Fatal crash CALGARY (CP) Erik Johansen, 32, of Edmonton, died in hospital Wednesday from injuries suffered in a single car accident earlier in the day at nearby Airdrie.
