"We bought it new," she said -- she could afford it because both "The Happiest Girl in the Whole U.S.A." and "Funny Face" are gold records -- "and it has a large bedroom, a mobile phone, two TV sets, quadraphonic sould, etc. We have two drivers and Stan drives and I can drive it. It's power everything and it's really easy to drive after you get the feel of it." DONNA, who comes f r o m Mount Airy and High Point, N.C., was born Yvonne V a u g h n which she decided was too melodic. After giving up her job as a high school English teacher in Los Angeles, she turned to singing and song writing and -- in only five years -- became a new overnight success. They've gone all over the U.S. A. ("except Montana and the Dakotas") in their bus, followed by another bus transporting six male musicians. "We used to have two girl musicians but the boys couldn't get along with the girls and we dropped the girls." A sign on the front of the bus announces "The Fargo Coach." Singers Tammy Wynette and George Jones ("Mr. and Mrs. Country Music") and Bill Anderson and his wife 'All My Sons 9 outdated but - ' DONNA FARGO 'Who Gets Custody?' Loretta Lynn also have buses. Rumor has it that Bill and Loretta might be splitting. "I wonder," said Donna, "who gets custody of the bus?" NEW YORKERS have a reputation (or not wanting to "get involved," but how about British actor Peter Bull's story of what happened after he was mugged in London?: "Bleeding and shatterr- ed, I took refuge in a rather smart restaurant -where the manager tried to eject me. When I appealed to others there, a man said he didn't want to get involved. The manager said he would call the police if I didn't leave. I said that's exactly what I want you to do. He led me into what I was told was the office -- and I found myself locked out, in the alley. "All those quiet months in New York -- and then to have it happen in London!" By ROBERT C. WYLDER A r t h u r Miller's f i r s t important play, "All My Sons," now playing at the Huntingdon H a r t f o r d , misses its original context. Set in. 1947 and first produced in 1948. while the wounds and glories of the Great War were still fresh in mind, the play depends a good deal upon the attitudes current at the time. Those attitudes h a v e changed .considerably now, two quite different wars later, and the play loses some of its impact as a consequence. Still, it's a 'powerful drama displaying a lot of the skills that Miller perfected in his later work. Even if it is emotionally overloaded at times, it is solidly crafted, building tension scene after scene to the final, crashing climax. There's enough theatrical meat in the play to sustain it despite the change in context. A GENERALLY first- rate cast at the Huntington Hartford gets credit for much of the impact of the local production. Jack Klugman makes Joe Keller, the father, real or s y m b o l i c , of "all my sons," a believable and sympathetic character. His portrayal is neatly balanced between the sham and the genuine, with the result that Joe appears in all the frus- Earl's Pearls Today's Best Laugh: A woman said she's entering her dog in several shows: "I don't care about him winning -- but I do want him to meet some nice dogs." Wish I'd Said That: Someone described a shady character: "He's the kind who'd sell used coloring books to kids." Remembered Quote: "Playing golf is a lot like raising kids. You keep thinking you're going to do better next time." -- Herm Albright. Earl's Pearls: Modern inventions are wonderful. Once we had to dig the burned toast out of the toaster. Today the burned toast pops up automatically. . A fellow wanted to buy one of the new compact cars, but mentioned that the price seemed a little high. "Well," shrugged the salesman, "if you want economy, you have to pay for it." That's earl, brother. trating complexity of a fallible human being in trouble beyond his ability to cope. Broken by his own weaknesses but not really a bad man, Joe Keller is what we have as 'the tragic hero in our times. He is not Hamlet, nor was meant to be, but he's a compelling figure nonetheless as K l u g m a n develops him. Sada Thompson is excellent as Mrs. Keller, driven to the point of breakdown both by her certainty that her older son, missing in action for three years now, will return and by her knowledge of her husband's guilt in supplying defective airplane parts to the military, an act which resulted in the deaths of several pilots. Miss Thompson maintains a controlled tension that fairly cries for release. She gets a maximum effect from a minimum of outward effort, but lets the inner turmoil show through. PETER COFFIELD plays Chris, the surviving son, with concentration and force. Joanna Hall as his intended bride is attractive and effective. In a minor part Stephen McHattie is superb, a small smouldering fire that bursts into flame at intervals. .Glenn Jordan directed. "All My Sons" asks much of both director and cast, for it presents in a short span of time so com- plex a series of problems that the untangling uses : up all the time and emotional energy available, leaving little for the detailed delineation of character and none for the erection sn- ssvormc of nuances.
