3D Monday, October 20, 1980-Iowa City Prw-CltUen V I) U 1 :;t' AP lamphoto Co-author of book Actress Ingrid Bergman, co-author with Alan Burgess of the book, "Ingrid Bergman; My Story," was in New York recently promoting the new release. Maverick is back By PETER J. BOYER AP Television Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) - It appears Uie past Isn't irretrievable, after all. What's done and gone, ain't. "Maverick" is coming back. Oh, joy unspeakable. "Maverick!' is coming back to prime time series television. Please say this isn't a cruel joke, like the time my sister swore that leap year meant there were two Christmases. No, NBC promises that this is true. "Maverick" will be on NBC's fall schedule. And it will be the real "Maverick," with the real James Garner, not the anemic, prissy imitation that ABC and CBS tried to peddle recently. Ah, the Tall Dark Stranger will once again work cons and dodge trouble from Natchez to New Orleans, mangling the myth of the Western Man along the way. Much of that roaming -will be done on trains. Bret Maverick hates horses almost as much as he hates guns and fists. The 1981-82 TV season ought to start on Sept. 14. That's 47 weeks, from tonight. I'm actually looking forward to a new NBC series. I'd better get a grip on myself . OK, there is that dark possibility that the new "Maverick," with the real James Garner, won't live up to its glorious past. Nan, this will be just as good. Garner has had all these years to polish that act. Worked on it for six seasons , in "Rockford Files." In fact, the suggestion that "Rock-ford Files" was a modern "Maverick" is no revelation. For "Rock-ford," Bret Maverick traded in vest and hat for a polyester shirt and loose sport jacket, got into the P.I. business and simply kept on being Bret Maverick cool, but not studiously so, and never, never unduly courageous. In that sense, the new "Maverick" will be "Rockford Files" returned to its original place in time. Meta Rosenberg, who produced "Rockford," will be back with "Maverick" (which is being made by Garner's production company in association with Warner Bros.). Now, to make "Maverick" perfect, Garner will have to find a spot for Joe 'My Three Angels' production slated at Mid-Prairie A colony of convicts comes to the aid of a French family in the Mid-Prairie High School production of "My Three Angels." The play wul be presented at 8 p.m. Nov. 7 and 8 by MPHS Thespian Troupe No. 1846. It is set in French Guiana, with the French family trying to make a go of it in their rented shop. Three convicts come to the rescue in the family's time of hardship during the Christ-mas season. Cast and crew members are selling advance tickets. Tickets will be available at the door for $2 on both nights. Santos (Rockford's cop buddy), for Stuart Margolin, Rockford's sleazy, yellow-hearted pal, and for Noah Beery, Rockford's innocent father. Santos could be a sheriff or a saloonkeeper, Angel could easily carry his spineless con act to the Old West. And Beery, of course, could play Maverick's oft-mentioned, never seen Pappy. Or maybe Pappy Maverick was supposed to be dead. No matter, "Maverick" itself was supposed to be dead. They've got to bring back the song : "Who is that tall, dark stranger there? Maverick is his name. Dum da de dum (I've forgotten the words here), luck is his companion, gamb-lin' is his game..." If something happens to this, if "Maverick" doesn't show up on NBC next fall, I'U have my vengeance against Fred Silverman, just as I had against my sister those many years ago. And Silverman's mommy won't be there to clean the peanut butter out of his hair. VOTE NOV. 4 ELECT MARY CONEIN Clerk of Court Paid tor by Conk tin Comm. Virginia Suhoaer. Tnaa.

Though their biggest hits came before 1970, Peter, Paul and Mary don't view themselves as a nostalgia act, capitalizing on a feeling of deja vu for the 1960s. The trio consisting of Peter Yarrow, Mary Travers and Paul Stookey recently reunited to perform a benefit concert for Democratic Sen. George McGovern, in Sioux Falls, S.D. The concert is part of an ongoing reunion of the three musicians that began in 1978, though they got together once before since their retirement from performing together in 1970. . "We did a big concert benefit for Sen. McGovern during his presidential candidacy in 1972, Yarrow said. "It was called 'Together Again' and held in Madison Square Garden. We reunited and so did Simon and Gar-funkel and Nichols and May." "We were together for 10 years," Yarrow continued. "Naturally, after being apart for eight or nine years, people are bound to see us as part of their personal history and feel nostalgic. But our concerts are here-and-now experiences. Unless the concerts were contemporary, meaningful experiences, we wouldn't do them. It would be reiterative; it would be yesterday." The trio emerged from the Greenwich Village folk-music scene of the early 1960s, popularizing songs such as "Blowin" in the Wind" and "Don't Think Twice It's Alright" by a then-unknown singer-songwriter named Bob Dylan; later in their career, Peter, Paul and Mary helped another young unknown named John Denver, recording his "For Baby" and "Leaving on a Jet Plane." They were active supporters of the civil rights and anti-war causes of the 1960s, proponents of the protest music movement of the period and one of the most popular groups of the pre- and post-Beatles era. "We sure were raw energy back at the beginning," Yarrow said. "By the end, we were a little more in control of our idiom. Each phase of our being together had its own strength. It took a long time to be able to have the rapport we have. '.'In the beginning, we had raw emotional energy which we transmitted to music of the human condition.

We acquired a broader palate from which to play." , . In 1970, after 10 years of recording and performing, Peter, Paul, ana Mary parted company. They were no longer unanimous about the direction in which they wanted to proceed; each recorded solo albums and worked on other projects. "We decided we needed time to individualize our lives," Yarrow said. "We had irreconcilable points of view. Paul had had a revelatory religious experience and wanted to do the Lord s work. Mary and I felt differently. Instead of feeling unanimous, we felt differently about what we wanted to share in life. , "We needed time away from each other. Two years ago, we decided we needed to be together again. We missed each other. We found we could have the best of both worlds. Now the group is only a portion of our lives. We can save our individual advocacies for our individual work and maintain a certain limited place for individual advocacies within the group." The trio got together in 1978 to record an album, "Reunion," and decided to make it stick: "We love being together; we love singing together. What the reunion turned into was a feeling that we wanted to continue -singing together, for perhaps 25 or 30 concerts a year. There was such a great hunger for the closeness we share in our music." While Peter, Paul and Mary concerts still draw the faithful who remember their music of the 1960s, Yarrow said the trio is reaching a new audience as well.

To some people It might be the chic thing of the moment but we're not a passing whim like disco." Since reuniting two years ago, the group has kept active performing In support of political causes, particularly in the areas of alternative energy and nuclear power. The McGovern benefit concert is the only such appearance for the candidate the trio has made this year. "We don't think unanimously In the context of the presidential election," Yarrow said. "We've discussed It a lot. I personally am very worried about the possibility of a repetition of the Nixon years. "Which is why we're going to Sioux Falls for Sen. McGovern. In the areas of our concerns, he represents the point of view we've traditionally felt was identical to our own. This is a person we feel is very close to the attitudes and feelings we hold to be important. "It's all part of a continuing process," Yarrow said, "a continuing commitment." ooooooooooooooooooooooooo O RED STALLION LOUNGE O O UVt COUNTRY MUSK NIGHTLY 0 O THIS WEEK: O O Mon.-Thur.: THE DALE THOMAS SHOW O O Frl.-Sot.l RADIO FLYER O O Next Weeki TIME PIECE Q 0 From 4-tt30 Dailys Draws 40' Monday-Tuesday All Night q O Pltehr'1.75 50' Frosted Mugs Pitchers '1.75 Q A Calebroto your birthday at tho Red Stallion a Frae Drink Card entitlos you to a 2 tor 1 V OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO STOP BY AND SACK THE COLONEL And Try Our Tuesday Dinner Special.
