MUSICAL SOONERS — Shirley Jones and Gordon Mac Rea head the bill at Plaza Theater tomorrow through Wednesday when they entertain movie goers in Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Oklahoma." Movie Fare Music, Suspense, Drama Scheduled To Film "Les Girls 59 In Europe For Video NEW YORK (AP)-"Television series are like streetcars," said actor Larry BIyden. "They come along every so often, and then its up to the actor to decide whether it will take him where he wants to go." BIyden Is a versatile performer equally at home playing a heel (Sammy in "What Makes Sammy Run?"), a singing, dancing leading man (Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Flower Drum Song") and assorted bookeepers, scientists, reporters, suburban husbands on assorted television anthologies. About three years ago, along came a projected TV series to be adapted from a book called "Les Girls." BIyden, who had been turning a disinterested shoulder to five or six series ideas a year, decided that the series, retitlcd "Harry's Girls," was his streetcar. So, next week, BIyden (who plays Harry) and three beautiful young actresses (who play the girls) depart, for a year of filmmaking in Europe. A grass widower, BIyden has already rented a flat in London, and expects that he'll be doing plenty of traveling around the continent for location shots. "Why should I turn down an opportunity to become rich and famous?" he asked expansively. "Besides, I like the idea of the series; it gives me a chance to live abroad for a while; a chance to work with European actors and an opportunity to see a lot of theatre in London and Paris, even Germany, Russia and Scandinavia, if I'm lucky." The assignment on the show which will be an NBC Friday night entry next season will not make him a complete expatriate. He expects to fly to New York every five or six weeks, mostly to visit his two children, aged five and two, who live with his former wife, Carol Haney, the dancer and choreographer, in Mew Jersey. BIyden, born Larry Blieden in Houston, also welcomes the television series because it gives him a chance to get back to comedy roles. He's been having trouble recently with that old actor's problem, type-casting. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Entertainment at Ottawa's two theaters, beginning Sunday will include musical comedy, suspense and biography. "Oklahoma" with Gordon Mac Rea and Shirley Jones, singing Rodgers and Hammerstein's music will start at the Plaza tomorrow and run through Wednesday. "Oklahoma" has delighted millions of movie goers and it was entertaining Broadway audiences long before the film was made. The biography of one of the American screen's tough guys will begin at the Hillcrest Drive- in Sunday, starring Ray Danton and Jayne Mansfield in "The George Raft Story." Also running at the Hillcrest will be the •uspense-filled "Twenty Plus Two." Both shows run through Tuesday and both are first run in Ottawa. "I Thank A Fool," starring Suaan Hayward and Peter Finch and "Damon and Phythias," starring Guy Williams and Don Burnett will run from Thursday through Saturday at the Plaza. The Wednesday through Saturday attractions at the drive-in will be Jules Verne's classic "Five Weeks In A Balloon" with Red Buttons, Fabian and Barbara Eden and "Swinging Along" with Ray Charles, Roger Williams and Bobby Vee. "Gigot," starring Jackie Gleason, and "Gay Paree," featuring the musical voices of Judy Garland and Robert Goulet will wind up this week's bill at the Plaza. "Gay Puree" is an animated, full-length cartoon. Steve" McQueen of TV fame stars in "War Lover" which runs with the action - packed drama "Siege of Syracuse" ends this week's movie amusement at the Hillcrest.

The final nails are being driven into the structures of next sea- •on'i schedules and, once again, comedy is king of the channels. Of tome 86 prime-time evening •howi next fall, 28 fall into the comedy category. Second most popular category will be the dramatic anthology. There will be 1 of them, an increase over this season, so they may herald the trend. There will be 15 variety shows, weekly and Bcmiweekly. It promises to be a lean year for horse opera—only seven remain, although two of them will be N minute ihowi. Apparently the brave efforts of the three networks to schedule news and actuality programs in prime-time slots haven't worked out too well. Sole survivors next season will be "CBS Reports" and some Chat Huntley and David Brinkley specials. There will be six game shows, including a return to the old- fashioned super-prize quiz show on ABC called "100 Grand." Action-adventure will be the lure of 14 series, alx>ut par for any season. The May 23 episode of CBS' "The Nurses" uses the thalido*. mide pill tragedy as the headline theme for its drama, and goes on to extract plot and point from the birth of a deformed baby, altogether a chilling subject. By next week just about on quarter of all evening televisio series on the networks will be repeating shows—not including th feature movies which were repeats to a lot of the audieno when they first reached televi sion. Usually they start in lat May or June.

Mouse Roars Again Just For Laughs It's still not too late to watch the natives of the Grand Dutchy of Fenwick see their plans run afoul when they decided to go to war with the United States and lose in order to have their bankrupt little nation rehabilitated. There are still plenty of laughs in store for the audience attending tonight's performance at 8 in Memorial Auditorium when the all-school cast of Ottawa High School presents "The Mouse That Roared." The play centers around the mythical little country that is bent on getting U.S. aid after falling in battle to American troops, but the accidental capture of the top U. S. scientist puts Grand Fenwick in a terrible fix —they win the war and problems continue. The play features Anna Machin as Grand Duchess Gloriana anc Terry Wollen as Tully Bascom the two leading characters of the comedy. Tickets will be on sale tonight at the auditorium box office for the OHS senior class-sponsorec production. NOW!
