Investor-Owned, Taxpaying Utility" I 35 West Penningtoa Street A TUCSON SAMURAI Arthur Lourant, one of Japan's most popular film and television actors, says that his most unusual role was as a Japanese medieval warrior (above), "and no one seemed unhappy that the part was played by a Negro, a former pants presser from Tucson, Ariz." Former Pants Presser Has Gome A Long Way By GENE BROOKS "Man, what a way to make some change. And things are getting better, too. This time, I co-star with a King cobra--next time Brigitte Bardot." The happy actor is A Lourant, 30-year-old Negro who has become one of the Japanese movie industry's top box-office attrac- tions since leaving Tucson in Tokyo exclusive Tacht- and the then-segregated Dun- kawa residential district, an bar school, now Spring Junior in town apartment, a souped- Hl 8 up Thunderbird, plenty of Lourant, with more 'than yen in the bank, and an ad- 30 Japanese movies to his credit, plus a top-rated television series and several Tokyo radio programs, left Tucson today after his first hometown visit in years. He was co-starring with the cobra and a bevy of "some kind of harem chicks" in New Delhi, India, for a new Japanese film, when he was called home last week by the serious illness of his mother, Mrs. Pearl Lourant, of 1045 NT. Anita Ave. His mother is better now, and Arthur today is on a jet plane en route to Hong Kong where the a has moved to continue filming. "Man, that producer has been bugging me to get back --more than $250 worth of phone calls in three days, and that's in dollars, not Japanese yen," Arthur laughed. Since leaving Tucson to enter the Army in 1950, this self-made man, modest, soft- spoken and affable, has acquired proficient use of six languages, a home Priest Fights Salacious Literature NEW, YORK (J A Jesuit priest has begun a fast that he says will continue until the city acts to stop the sale of pornographic literature. The priest, the Rev. Morton A. Hill, who is affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, explained the fast in a sermon yesterday at the church at Park Ave. and 84th St. He started living on only water at 6 p.m. last Friday. Father Hill noted in an interview that Mayor Robert F. Wagner promised last July to establish a program designed to curb and eventually eliminate the traffic in pornography. Nothing has happened to date, the priest said. An aide to the mayor said last night that "a number of things have already been done in this area, more are being contemplated, and an announcement on the subject will probably be forthcoming this week." Father Hii! said the New state penal code forbids the dissemination to children under 18 of material that of pictures of nude or partially denuded figures to exploit sex, lust or perversion for commercial gain." He said such literature leads to sexual violence and cotics. miring throng of teen-age movie fans. He was a presser in a dry- cleaning plant when he entered the service with no idea "what his eventual work would be. After combat duty in Korea with a chemical company that laid smoke screens on the front lines, Lourant found that he liked the Orient so much that he asked to be discharged in Japan. Just for fun, although he couldn't play it, he bought a beat up trumpet at a pawn shop but eventually learned to blow a few notes. While he was sitting in with a Japanese band one night, a top producer approached Lourant and signed him for a minor role as a musician in a film. That appearance, in 1955, in a potboiler called "Funky 1 Jazz," led to continuous theatrical commitments. He now speaks and writes several Japanese dialects plus the classic language and dubs his films in Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, Korean and Cantonese-Chinese, and, of course, English. His films are getting widespread U.S. showings, mainly in art theaters where they are showcased by the Toho and Nikkatsu Companies, Japan's most prestigious production companies. He has another Japanese film brewing, "The Black Sun," to be completed early year, then France for the movie with BB. A role with Marlon Brando is in the works in Hollywood. Lourant disparages many Americans, many of them former military officers, who have retired in Japan and taken out citizenship. "Yes, life for a Negro is sometimes difficult in the States--I've encountered absolutely prejudice since leaving the service and living in Japan--but I'm anxious to come home and' work, no matter what conditions are," he said. "Incidentally, most of my films in Japan are in color-how's that for-type casting? 1 he asked.
