PAGE 6 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE TV CAMEOS: Frank DeFeljm ' A Show That Was Haunted From the Start By ED MISURELL FICTIONAL ghost stories and real ghosts have fascinated mankind for centuries. Oh, so you're a skeptic—you don't believe in ghosts, eh? Well, you may he in for a couple of surprises if you tune in some weeks hence when NBC-TV presents its spirit- hunt telecast, "The Stately Ghosts of Kngland." "From the moment we began to shoot the show," said its producer-writer-director Frank HeFelitta, "we ran into msny eerie happenings which I can't find any explanation for to this very day. Cameras broke down. Some of ' our color film developed by dependable labora- . lories came out in dark green tones despite the fact that our cameramen were top-flight.and so was their metering equipment. * * * "CREW members were involved in car accidents. Lights blew up, and automatic .equipment left on at night had been switched off in the morning .even though no one-was .-near .it' in the intervening hours. "Particularly odd," continued DeFelitta as he leaned on his desk in his New York office, "was what happened when we wanted to film a clock striking twelve—the witching hour—in one of the big halls in one of, Ta in and spotted the title; 'The the mansions. We had our cameras ready and waiting— and every clock in the house struck twelve except the one we were trying to shoot. "It's true you might say the pendulum jammed. So did we. But it's also pretty weird, isn't it?" * * • * THE stockily built producer pointed out that in doing the show, he didn't take a position either way on the existence or non-existence of ghosts. "What we did do is to have the people who claimed to have seen manifestations tell about them on the spot where these appearances occurred. These people are good people and take the subject of their ghosts very seriously. After spending a month with them in their stately homes at Longleat, Salisbury Hall and Beaulieu, I have to believe them." • Even the idea for doing the • show ' came about in an odd :' Stately Ghosts of England,' on a shelf near me. The book detailed the experiences of Tom Corbett, a well known British clairvoyant and financial adviser to prominent people. "When I saw the price—$6.95 —I was about to put it down But after flipping through it, I bought it. I read it that night and found it intriguing. Shortly after, I saw a movie starring Margaret Rutherford, the great English actress, and thought if I could tie them together some way it would make a good TV show." DeFelitta presented his idea to Julian Goodman, 'his boss at NBC, and was given an O.K. to go ahead. "One of the toughest parts of the job was getting to see Miss Rutherford," said the producer. "When I went to England, she was working on a picture and was shielded by people to keep guys like me away from her. I bought ten dozen roses fashion, DeFelitta pointed out.; which cost 5100 and sent them ' "I had ducked into a bookstore ' to her dressing room with a one night to get out of the ' note. She invited me in to •n:pt«-:H-,ioii by Kinp Features Syndicate Producer Frank DeFelitta talks to Margaret Rutherford during the filming of NBC-TV* "The Stately Ghosts of England." Behind him is Tom Corbett, well known British clairvoyant. thank me. When I told her about my idea to do a show on ghosts with her in it, she said she didn't have the time. In addition, she said she believed in ghosts and didn't want to offend them." After DeFelitta convinced her that he intended treating the subject seriously, the actress finally consented. "At the three mansions, all hundreds of years old," he said, "Miss Rutherford is on hand to brief the audience on the legends and historial traditions which form the basis of the hauntings." Looking back on the mishaps that occurred before he wrapped up the program—and the thoughts of a ?150,000 show going down the drain—De­ Felitta smiled quickly and said, Now that it's over, most of- my worries were unnecessary. After all, Tom Corbett told me that the ghosts liked what we were doing and that everything would turn out all right. Do I believe in ghosts?" he asked, still smiling.,. '"Well; I'll leave it up to you to "judge for yourself." Hospital Notes ADMISSIONS: Hazel Barnard.
