Trip Home Actor John Randolph and his wife, actress Sarah Cunningham, right, a Greenville native, chat with Mrs. Eoline Cunningham, Sarah's mother, during a trip home to Greenville Thursday. The Randolphs, who now live in New York and Hollywood, return to South Carolina once each year. During this year's trip, Ran dolph is taking a short vacation from his role In the new "King Kong" movie. COLUMBIA (AP) - The chief justice of the South Carolina Supreme Court said Thursday he will try to convince Gov. James B. Edwards not to insist that passage of judicial reform legislation be accompanied with new disciplinary procedures for state judges. Chief Justice J. Wood-row Lewis told House and Senate leaders he will try to persuade the governor that the Supreme Court already has the "inherent" power to discipline judges. Meanwhile, several top legislators said Thursday another attempt should be made to enact judicial reform this session. They agreed to recommend the addition of nine circuit judges to the existing 16-Judge system. The new judges would be elected this year before the legislature adjourns. Actor John Randolph, Wife Take Time Off In Greenville By SHARON TODD News Arts Editor Actor John Randolph, taking a few days off from trying to capture the giant gorilla in Dino de Lauren-tis' new version of "King Kong," and his wife Sarah Cunningham are in Greenville this week on their annual trip to visit Ms. Cunningham's mother. Ms. Cunningham, a native Greenvillian and her husband, both veterans of stage, screen and television, come back home once each year to visit Mrs. Frank Cunningham, a resident of Pendleton Manor Nursing Home. . Randolph will be returning to California today to complete his scenes in the new "King Kong" movie to be released in December. He is working in the movie with Jeff Bridges, brother of Beau Bridges, who he worked with in the movie "Gaily, Gaily," set for broadcast Friday on WLOS-TV in Ashveille, "In 'King Kong' I play Capt. Ross, the man who leads the expedition that finally makes the capture," Randolph said. "When I left we were in the middle of the capture sequences." Randolph said the movie has been updated and King Kong climbs the World Trade Center Building in Chicago rather than the Empire State Building as In the original version. The actor said the movie is being filmed by Paramount at the MGM studios on Backlot 2 and six miniature stages are being used. "It is exciting the way . the sequences are being blended," he said, "everything is in proportion and when you see the scenes everything is joined together, but it's all done by composition." Randolph said the $23 million film is the most expensive movie ever made. The "assimilated Greenvillian" has recently completed another film, although much less expensive, which he is just as excited about. Randolph will portray Federal Judge J. Waites Waring of Charleston in the CBS television American Parade program, "With All Deliberate Speed," to be telecast June 16. The drama special is about a black minister, J. A. Delaine, and Waring who between them set in motion a legal case concerning segregated school systems (the Clarendon County, S.C. case) which reached all the way to the Supreme Court. Randolph met Judge Waring in New York in the late 1960s after the jurist had retired. Before he began work on the film, which was shot in Tallahassee, Fla., he came to South Carolina and talked to a number of people who had worked with the judge. The veteran actor said , he is very much at home in historical films, having appeared in the television specials, "The Missiles of October," "Pueblo," "Collision Course" and most recently "F. Scott Fitzgerald in Hollywood" along with his wife. Randolph also had featured roles in the movies "Seripico," "There Was A Crooked Man," and "Earthquake." Ms. Cunningham has worked with her husband-many times through the years as well as having an outstanding solo career. "We are now appearing together in a Sominex commercial," she said, "where I tell him how much I love him." The actress is a graduate of Furman University and appeared in several plays there and at Greenville's Little Theatre. Randolph also had worked at the Little Theatre, taking a role in "Life With Father" several years ago. Ms. Cunningham, who was a co-founder of New York's Ensemble Studio Theatre, said she has worked "mostly on stage" during her career, having appeared on Broadway in such plays as "The Visit" and "Toys In The Attic." Recently she has been working in television, however, and has taken guest roles in "Baretta," "The Rookies" and "Starsky and Hutch." She was one of the leading players in "The Family Holvak," a series that was not picked up by the networks.

The family court judges would be elected during the 1977 session. The bill that was vetoed by Gov. Edwards called for the addition of nine judges to the circuit Court and establishment of a new statewide district court system with 50 judges. House Speaker Rex. L. Carter, D-Greenville; Rep. Robert Kneece, D-Rich-land, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee; and Sen. L. Marion Gressette, D-Calhoun, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said they would try again to gain legislative approval and the governor's signature on a statewide system of justice mandated by a 1972 constitutional amendment. If Lewis can convince Edwards of that, one of the main roadblocks to the passage at this General Assembly session of legislation making far-reaching revisions in South Carolina's courts system will have been removed. Edwards vetoed the judicial reform bill, mainly because it did not contain a disciplinary provision. And he has said publicly he would not sign any subsequent bill that does not include some means of reprimanding judges, short Even if Gov. Edwards does so, there is no quar-antee the legislature will approve a second version judicial reform legislation before it adjourns in the next few weeks.
