TUBOAY, NOVIMm ZQ. ANDERSON DAILY IULLETIN 'Mean Streets gets it's raves NEW. YORK (AP) - Thirty- year-old film director Martin Scorsese batted around his hole! suite, like a hyped-up moth, talking in funny rapid-fire bure':s, fram sheer joy and ner vous energy. He had a hit movie — "Mean Streets'." E got raves from some important critics at the 1Mb New York Film Festival recently, .and opened in New York soon after. Scorsese is one of those few, bright, young directors who are making it — for now. In today's film market, it's often either hit or miss. And for every Scor- sese, there are hundreds more, still scrambling tor financing, trying to put a big deal to'geth- . er and wondering it they'll spend the rest of (heir lives as anonymous hustlers. "It's an exciting time in film. The young have a chance. But it's a time for buccaneers, a period of hot air," says Andrew Sams, film critic. However, for Scorsese, the years of hustling were worth it. The scene at his St. Regis Hotel suite looked like a struggling film makers' fantasy: roses on the table, Italian pastries, a steak for lunch, choked down between appointments. New scripts are pouring in for his consideration, along with potential money offers and III Hollywood old acquaintances with good ideas. Scorsese paced, bit .bis nails, fidgeted, laughed and joked, sometimes cringing at ihat unmistakable sound of'Success -r- a constantly jangting\ telephone. "Before, people would say my films were great, but they wouldn't offer money. Suddenly people are asking me to do all the things I've wanted to do — snd right now!" says Scorsese, a tiny man, wii>h enormous, expressive eyes, right out of a Goya painting, and lips so pink he looks as if he just Jinished a raspberry ice stick. To get money for making his film, Scorsese went the route of independent financing. By chance, he met Jonathan Taplin, a 26-year-old independent priducer, who was able to get outside Morey. They shot "Mean Streets" u 27 days for $350,000, with $20<V »p in deferred costs. It's now bringing back muct} more in theaters. ' Scorsese grew up in New York's Little Italy, an asthmatic child from an Italian-American family. He couldn't play sports, so his father took him to the movies. His world was wrapped up in the Roman Catholic Chun*, a tough and exiting street life, pop music and 'jlia. in and asthmat- next, These autobiographical el nren'ts come together in h movie — violent, tunny, te lured with street ta'.k and lacet with a religious sense of guilt.

When asked what the lo point of his career was, i deadpans his answer in a typ eai lightning kind of humor. "It was 1965 to 1972. N Really. I was never happy wi toe result of my films during th'at time," he says. His struggle brought forl award-winning shorts like "Th Big Shave." It meant gigs a film editor on films like "Med cine Ball Caravan," assistan directorship in "Woodstock and jobs making commerda in Icelandic , and Flemish, a though he didn't speak the Ian guage.

We are a nation built on electric energy. Our entire economy hums !o the iune of generators that run all industries. Wiihln 10 years we must build as much new generating capability as we've built In our entire history. We must have trillions of BTU's of heat available from some fuel to provide the power needed in the 1980's -and use the fuel in a way that causes a minimal impact on the environment. Obviously such a massive program creates the opportunity for differences of opinions and priorities. Our promise to you is simply this: We recognize the necessity to preserve the environment for future generations {our children will live here, too) and will take every responsible measure to do so. Wa also must recognize the need for electric power-and will taka every responsible action to make sure it's available. In fact, we are obligated by law to do so. In fulfillment of these two objectives-we'll do our best to strike an acceptable balance between environmental considerations and the need for ad* dltional electric power.
