MONDAY, JANUARY 20, 1969 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS -B Television RevieW . . By CYNTHIA LOWBY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) — "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" found a creative film editor who put on film a lot of pictures, maps, documents, paintings and such, then ran it fast and succeeded in sketching 200 years of American history in 2Va minutes. The film was such a hit that the Brothers ran it twice, then persuaded their man to tackle 1968 in the same fashion. He did —and it took him four minutes to scurry through the highlights of a single year. The film was run Sunday Qight and while it seemed to be slightly loaded on the editorial Bide—it slowed down, for instance, at Chicago at convention time—it still added up to television's brightest yearend roundup. NBC's latest . "world premiere'^ feature, a movie-length drama broadcast Saturday night, not only took considerable liberty with courtroom procedure in its murder trial, but committed the dramtaic sin of not having one admirable chai-- acter among the leading players. "Trial Run," like so many of these two-hour shows made for television, rambled casually, took short side trips away from the main plot and in general had all the earmarks of a one- hour television show padded to fill another 60 minutes. James Franciscus, remembered tenderly as the idealistic teacher of "Mr. Novack," played a hard-nosed, short-fused young attorney so ambitious that he was unscrupulous in his methods and faithless to Ms friends. The head of his law firm was played by Leslie Neilsen as a brusque, driving egocentric. Then there was Janice Rule, again cast as a neurotic—this time the boozy, wanton wife of the boss. Diane Baker played the senior lawyer's private secretary without much warmth or conviction. The author never seemed able td decide whether he was telling about the young lean's handling Beatles Going Broke?-; c ary Granth_65 London (AP)—John L e n-n o n said in an interview published today that he and his fellow Beatles will be broke in six months if their organization— Apple—gr*es on losing money ai the present rate. Lennon's statement immediately brought a denial that the company was in deep financial trouble but an admission that its management is undergoing cha.n;e. The interview with Lennon was published by a pop mus'c weekly, Disc and Music Echo. It it the 28-year-old Beatle was quoted as saying: "We haven't got half the money people think we have. It's been pie-in-the-sky from the start. Apple's losing money ev­ ery week because it needs close running by a big businessman." The $2.4 million company was set up with interest covering music publishing, television, shops, movies and electronics. Its headquarters in London s Savile Row—bought for $1.2 million a year ago—has' a staff of 30 to 40 persons. "Apple needs a new broom and a lot of people there will hwve to go," Lennon said. . An official of the companycommented: "Let the quote rest." But later Apple issued a statement saying managerial changes were being made. "We have our businessman and we're doing out - streamlining," the statement said. "Our records are hits. . Our misses are magnified. Our fu- true is magnificent." A spokesman added: "Whai John said in the interview was true. What Apple says now is turo. The mimes they lire a'changing." , After a meeting at Apple headquarters Wednesday night, Beatle George H arriso n "weighed in with what he called a clarification of Lennon 's remarks. "Apple has plenty of money— we all have," Harrison told newsmen. "When John said we were losing money he was talki -o- -o- -o- ir^ aly.'Ut 'jiving too much away to the wrong people. We ha\ •• given too much to iharity. \\>. 've iust been too generous and that's going to stop." Rumors circulated 'hri)ii"h London's pop music world thai Harrison and Lennon had a fierce quarrel that broke up rehearsals for a Beatle television spectacular last weekend. A colleague who did not wish 1o be named denied that the two stars came to blows and said i': was "just a personal tiff." lie added: "Life among the Peatles has never been completely peaceful. but they have always managed to patch up differences."
