SS-Pahn Bech Post, Friday, November 1, 1!?03 Why Shoot Part Of Che Movie In Puerto Rico? By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NEA The question before the cast is this: II southern California cm be Bolivia, why can't It be Cuba? Richard Fleischer is shooting "Che," the film biography of the idealistic Cuban revolutionary, Che Guevara. The script takes Che to his death in Bolivia. They are shooting the Bolivian sequences at the Twentieth Century-Fox ranch, deep in the San Fernando Valley. m wm to w a 1 ' V mum m m m I l W J7I V" k i ' 11 H L r- ,9 11 JOHN BOYNTON But, tot the Cuban part of the film, they are going to Puerto Rico. Nobody is quite sure why. The ranch, a vast hunk of wilderness, can look like almost anywhere. Down low. It has grasslands and pasture and countless westerns have been shot there. But you struggle up; doing the last part on loot, and here the terrain is rugged and mountainous, with craggy, treeless peaks looming In the distance. People who have been to Bolivia say it is an exact double. This is especially true where they are shooting, because thCV have hnllt a dirt marl to nowhere and a few thatched-roof huts. Omar Sharif, as Che, charges out of a hut with his men and they shoot up the road where a Bolivian army truck appears. The men fight a rear guard action as Sharif escapes. Rudy Diaz leads a mule loaded with supplies. They set up for another scene. Sharif and Fleischer scramble down into a gully, where a frailer is parked. This is the only place they can relax, and get Into the bliss of air conditioning and out of the hot California sun. Sharif, with his black beard, looks like the pictures of Che, although the Cuban didn't have many pictures taken. He Is trying to look and act as much like Che as he can. He took out a couple of letters he had received and shoved them across the table. They were letters from people who had met Che. Sharif says things like the letters are a big help in his characterization. "It's terribly hard to play a real person," he said. Next he'll play Christopher Columbus for Edward Dmy-tryk, and possibly after that he'll do Julie Styne's musical based on the life of Valentino. More real persons. Sharif makes his home in Paris. He hopes that by mid-1970, he'll be financially secure enough to stay there most of the time and only do a picture or two a year only those projects which rxcite him. "I like Paris," he says, "because it's so central. You fly an hour and you're in Rome or London or Madrid. But here, In Los Angeles, you get on a plane and fly four hours and where are you? Texas."
