Road Shows Waning 1 ; By BOB THOMAS Associated Press Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — A glance at the movie release schedule for 1969 indicates that the film companies' passion for roadshow attractions is cooling. The reserved-seat movie became popular with movie firms after the historic accomplishment of "The Sound of Music," which pushed through the $100 million barrier during its sensational three-year run. That prompted the companies to seek other attractions that could be shown at advanced prices in a single theater for long periods. But it wasn't that easy. No other film has come along to combine the magic elements of "So'und of Music," and millions have been lost in trying. The economic reality: Though you can earn fantastic profits on a roadshow, you can also' lose enormously, because of the high cost of producing and exhibiting such films. Only about one in three road­ shows appears to score, and there are apparently no rules for success. It used to be that the presence of Julie Andrews insured a hit—witness "Sound of Music," "Hawaii," "Thoroughly Modern Millie." But even she is fallible, as demonstrated by the disappointing returns for "Star!" Big names and rave reviews aren't necessary. The no-name "2001: A Space Odyssey" drew many poor reviews, yet it has caught on with the young generation. But the all-star "Shoes of the Fisherman" is doing only fair business. "The Graduate," "Bonnie and Clyde," "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Odd Couple" proved that pictures don't have to be road-shows to attract monumental grosses. In fact, such hits constituted better investments because of lower cost and faster play-off. Twentieth Century-Fox continues to place faith in the road­ show. And with good reason: The company had had the most profitable ones. Coming up for 1969 is "Justine," based on Lawrence Durell's novels. "Hello, Dolly!" is also a hopeful entry, provided an arrangement can be worked out with David Merrick, who controls the release date. Paramount, currently prospering with "Romeo and Juliet," has two big musicals ready for 1969: "Paint Your Wagon" and "Darline Lili." Also the Harold Robbins saga, "The Adventurers." Warner Brothers has high hopes for the all-star "Madwoman of Chaillot." The new year may also bring the made-in- Russia "Tschaikowsky," then again, maybe not. United Artists is bringing out two made-in-Europe road- RENT AN ELECTRIC WATER HEATER $195 PER MONTH Free 100 AMP 240V Service Special offer for Illinois Power electric customers.

ILLINOIS M§*\ POWER COMPANY shows? Stanley Kramer's "The Secret of Santa Vittoria" and the war film, "The Battle of Britain." Columbia is offering a large- size Western, "McKenna's Gold," and a space epic, "Marooned." Universal has a Shirley MacLaine musical, "Sweet Charity," and the all-star "Airport." Even the new network- backed companies are getting into the act; CBS Films is spon-. soring "The Royal Hunt of the Sun." MGM, prospering once more with "Gone with the Wind," hopes that "Ben Hur" will have similar success on its reissue this year . Also coming from MGM: a musicalized "Goodbye, Mr. Chips" and the epic 'Alfred the Great." HOME'S AQUEDUCTS In the year A.D. 97, the nine aqueducts of Rome supplied the city with 30 million gallons oJ water a day within the walls and 20 million gallons outside the walls, according to the Ency­ clopaedia Britannica. Bowling is said to have originated in Egypt some 7,000 years ago Television I Review . . . j By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - One of the nice things about midwinter television is the return of CBS's "21st Century." The show explains the most complex scientific and mechanical advances so that the average person can understand them and even makes the explanation interesting. The season premiere on Sunday concerned the broad subject of simulation. For a half hour it showed men pretending to conduct a space war by pushing buttons that controlled imagi- nery spacecraft zooming around the sun. Men safely on the ground simulated the Qying of aircraft which were still on the drawing board. Men practiced landing on the moon's surface and walking around almost weightless as if they had reached there. The film, made in laboratories and on proving grounds, was instructive and fascinating. Walter Cronkite, the program's host, seemed to be having as much fun—simulating landing a plane, turning a back flip when pretending to be a moon-stroller —as the audience. Earlier, the Bing Crosby golf tournament was encountering tough luck with the weather. ABC concentrated for two hours on the third, inconclusive day of play. The finals scheduled Sunday were set back after stormy weather delayed the first day of play. Even on Sunday viewers could see water squishing out of the shoes of the players. There were a few glimpses of the celebrity players in the pro- amateur paring the most dra matic being the sight of poor Jack Lemmon trying to hack his way off a rocky beach at the ocean's edge. The visual coverage was excellent but the reporting staff chattered every moment. Now ABC expects to devote only one hour—from 6 to 7 EST tonight—to the tournament windup. CBS's "Children's Film Estival" was another returning show, this time with a series of three short fantasies, all without words. They told of a French boy's affection for a merry-go- round horse, his dreams about a model airplane and his search for his lost dog. Kukla Fran and OUie again served as hosts and explained each film—after each was over. It would have helped young and adult viewers had the explanation come in advance. "Down on the Farm" on NBC Saturday night was a loving and nostalgic look at the disappearing "family farm" of America —the chores, the kitchen, the fields, the fairs. It compared that life with the mechanized farm factories of today and tomorrow. The hour was carefully researched, loaded with statistics but the hard facts were so adroitly served up along with the warm and lofty sentiments about being close to the joys of nature that it was very pleasant viewing. Gasoline Spilled Into The River EAST ST. LOUIS, 111. (AP)— A barge collision spilled about 100,000 gallons of gasoline into the Mississippi River at East S3t. Louis Friday, the Coast Guard said. There was no fire. Officials said a —southbound tow struck an empty barge moored at the Socony-Mobile Co. dock, rupturing a tank and spilling the gasoline. The barges were doused with foam as a precautionary measure and separated, the Coast Guard said. The river current and evaporation dissipated the gasoline.
