S—B THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS THURSDAY, JANUARY Watching TV 6:C0 6:30 7:00 Town Illinois MISSISSIPPI MUD made these actors look like statues, but it was all in a day's work for Steve McQueen, right, and Rupert Crosse who were making location shots at C arrolton. Miss. Making Film Of Faulkner Novel IS.v BOP. THOMAS HOLLYWOOD i APi •••• The new Stove McQueen movie is dedicated to the proposition lh;it a work of William Faulkner ran Ijc successfully converted b> film. History is against this thesis, since a Faulkner vehicle has rarely been successful on the screen. The efforts have been: "The Story of Temple Drake," 19.'!o from "Sanctuary," "Today We Live," From "Turnabout". "Intruder in the Dust." 1949; "The Long Hot Summer," 1957; "The Tarnished Angels," j 1957 from "Pylon", "The Sound 1 and the Fury," 1958: and "Sanctuary," 1900. The new effort is "The Reiv­ ers," the late Mississippians's last novel, which won him a Pulitzer Prize in 1963. It is a 3ie .tureso.ue tale involving an 11- year-old Southern boy who runs with i Nee. •ouiiK adventurer ind learns about away and lile.

The reason for! his success: "The Fox." his i first feature after escaping from j the grind of directing "Ben Cas- j ey," "Gunsmoke" and other TV I series. j Rydell had recently returned J from location filming in the; Faulkner country near Carroll-; ton, Miss, I i Rydell was asked why the Faulkner • magic, which drew him a Nobel Prize and other j honors, has largely escaped i capture on I he screen. i "Maybe because his writing is j so textual," the director mused. ; "His words are brilliant and rich; they look marvelous on the page." "But films are not primarily a verbal medium."

The premiere show of the CBS scries opened with a hefty serv- in'; of song by Campbell, of course, and along came Bobbie Gentry and John Hartford. Before the 60 minutes had gone by they had covered most v of the numbers that made their reputations and then some. The Smothers Brothers were there -logically since they are not only the producers of the new series but it was from their summer replacement series that Campbell's career took off. Campbell's attractive singing style and skill on the guitar are especially easy to take. Miss Gentry with her husky, true voice and John Hertford, whose sensitive, pensive face illuminates the sad lyrics of his ballads are interesting to watch and hear. ! The studio audience—or maybe it was a laugh track- screamed wildly at the comedy. However, it did seem that there must have been a better way to amuse the audience than to , dress Tom Smothers in a cow- I boy suit and put him astride a \ real live hippopotamus which he treated like a horse. Or a better j way to handle a monologue than ', to dress Pat Paulsen in an i open-fronted shirt, put a guitar I in his hands and make him read ! an over-blown and almost i desperate piece about the history of the folk song. ! But as long as Campbell and his musical friends are promi- for Wednesday nights during the rest of the season. The appearance of the Smothers Brothers on Campbell's show illustrates one of the curious convictions of producers who book guest stars on television shows. For some reason, they believe unanimously that it is a real treat for viewers to see singers and comedians who have weekly network series of their own as guests on other singers and comedians weekly series. Thus we encounter Carol Burnett in a Lucy episode, and after awhile there's Lucy on Carol's show. Or Tom and Dickie Smothers show up on "Laugh in." And pretty soon Dan Ro wan and Dick Martin return the visit. The truth is, it's not much j of a treat, and besides, it is i bound to lead to over-exposure ' of a special sort. Another TV custom which has long since staled is the business of having stars with a show coming up appearing on an as sortment of programs on the same network for the sole purpose of plugging their project. The game shows and the early morning and late evening con versation shows are widely used for this purpose. It seems that at least twice a week Johnny Carson must struggle with some performer awkwardly attempting to sell some TV product. Eydie Gorme was the most recent Carson guest with TV plugs on her mind, but she was better than most because she could at least sing a song or two. Too much of the time, the guest has little of interest to contribute—neither quick wit nor a good anecdote— and the viewer suffers right along with Carson. NEWS BKIEI i m Reivers" seemed to be a good j Faulkner* work for film adapta- ! tion because of its wealth of humor and action. But the rambling novel had to be made more visual and simple by script writers Harriet Frank Jr. and her husband, Irving Ravetch, who also functions as producer. They also adapted "The Long Hot Summer" and "The Sound and The Fury." CHANDLER, Ariz. tAP) — Television star Art Carney isn't i interested in attending a sewage ' disposal plant dedication here. Carney, who has played sewer worker Ed Norton on the Jackie Gleason Honeymooners show for 10 years, turned down the invitation from Mayor George Nader because he "wants to dispel his association with the sew- erman . image," business manager William McCaffrey explained. The mayor had even offered to engrave Carney's name on all the manhole covers in the city. STANDOUT IN A CROWD is actor Gregory Peck whose smiling face can be seen above heads of Formosans in the Keelung marketplace. Peck is in Formosa shooting location scenes for a new movie. Cast Strips Naked In Play At College By STEVE WILUSTROM ANN ARBOR, Mich. (APi Six actors and four actresses were arrested Sunday at the University of Michigan after i performing in a. play in which they stripped naked. | They were ordered to appear ! in District Court in Ann Arbor ; today on indecent exposure charges which carry a maxi-' mum penalty of one year in jail' and a $500 fine. Police did not release the names of those arrested. The members of the New York company, the Performance Group, removed their clothes for 15 minutes a third of the way through the .'iVi-hour play, "Dionysus in '69," and for 20 minutes at: the end. Advance billing that the actors would "kiss and fondle each other from head to toe" created a furor among state legislators. State x Sen. Gilbert Bursley, Ann Arbor Republican, said Sunday night "some of my colleagues will no doubt be shocked" when he reports to the state Senate this week. However, University President Robben Fleming, who did not attend, defended the play in a statement Saturday, in which he said nudity was difficult to describe as obscene, and at question was "the context within which nudity occurred." Academic and professional people regarded the play, a con­ temporary version of Euripides' "Bacchae," as worthy of serious consideration, Fleming said. NEWS BRIEF LOS ANGELES, (AP) - Comedian Bob Hope 's eye ailment was treated successfully Tuesday but he probably will remain hospitalized for several days, his doctors said.
