•B The Salt Lake Tribune, Thursday, October f>, I960 Checking the Channels Robert Young Can Remember S.L. By Richard O. Martin Tribune Staff Writer Thirty years ago actor Robert Young, now known to mi!lions as Jim Anderson on television's "Father Knows Best" show, joined a touring theatrical company in Ogden, Utah. The name of the company was the Moroni Ol^en Players, a group well-remembered in Utah. Mr. Young Mr. Martin played his first performance with the company in Provo, then came to Salt Lake City to play in the old Salt Lake Theater. "I remember I was awed by the Salt Lake Theater," he told me in a telephone interview \Vednesday. "I'd never played in anything but small theaters. I remember I was terrified by the size of the theater in Salt Lake City." He - appeared with the company in Salt Lake for a week, then went on the road for 16 weeks. "IT WAS an unforgettable thrill/' he said. "Nothing has measured up to that, quite, since then. This was my first acting job that paid real money. This ; startled me because I was beginning to think acting was a job that was non- income producing." Since then, of course, Mr. Young's career is a matter of record ... 80 movies, radio and television series and the like. But now, temporarily at least, he's out of a job and he likes it. After six years show, "Father Knows Best," has been dissolved — at least Bobt. Young as far as new productions are concerned. The series now being presented over CBS consists of the best of the shows produced during the past six' years. And Mr. Young is presently pondering just wha't the future will hold, although he's not hampered fey .possibilities. They include another TV series; perhaps a season o£ six hour-long specials; possibly more motion pictures or everi a Broadway play. WHY DID he wind up the "Father Knows Best" series while it was still receiving top viewer ratings? - • "At the end' : of the fourth year," Mr. Young said, "my partner, Eugene Rodney and I, decided to go one more year with the show. Our thinking was geared for five years, partly because the children in ihe show were growing up, partly because we were afraid we wouldn't be able to keep up the quality of the scripts—and because we were both physically tired. "BUT AT the end of the fifth year there was so much pressure that we decided some what reluctantly to go another year. The sixth year was definitely the wind up as far as we were concerned." But the best of "Father Knows Best" will continue running for some time to come. A total of 104 shows have been scheduled for rebroadcast. A THURSDAY night special is worthy of notice if you happen to be a Victor Borge buff (and, for the record, J am). The on Channel 4 at 8:30 p.m. Guests will include Japanese singer Izumi Yukimura ("The Toast of Tokyo"); Kabuki dancers Shiko Yagi and Chushiro Sato, and pianist Leonid Hambro, BOKGE sequences will Include "Pianist to Pianist" in which the musical comedian will conduct an imaginary interview with Franz Liszt; a comedy takeoff on the "Minute Waltz" with Mr. Hambro, and a sketch in which Grieg's Piano Concerto is "popularized" for performance in Latin America by giving it a bull fight character. THURSDAY'S SEASON PREMIERES: Five season premieres will be aired on Ch. 5 Thursday night.
