The Idaho Krcc I'rcss Tire News-Tribune, Thursday. January 3u. 1375 - li Television in review 'Archer 9 misses mark By Frank S. .Swrrllon NEW YORK 'Ui'll - In Ihe b r i l l i a n c e of the Southern California sun, the hard-boiled gumshoe has thrived. There is Dashiell Ilammolt's Sam Spade, Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe and finally, Koss .MacDonald's Lew Archer. These authors raised mystery writing --Die stepchild of literature --lo art. Their dcleclives are, perhaps, the lasl American heroes. Their men live by a code in Ihc neon society of Southern California. Siimebody hires Ihe dick, and like a bulldog he sinks his teeth into a case. These private-eyes are loners, Ihe lasl freelancer*, Ihe last of individuality in a society swallowed up by huge corpora- lions, shopping cenler living and easy morality. Tonight, NUC offers "Archer," starring Brian Kcilh. NBC has Lew Archer, but it's nol Ross MacDonald. In fact, Paramount Pictures Television, .which created Ihe show, will not be using any of (he author's 27 novels, according lo NBC. The show only bears Ihe name, "Archer." The rest is old cars, (ired tele-plols and the lalcnls of Brian Keith. Based on the first show, NBC has a turkey and not a peacock. In Ihc first episode, "The Turkish Connection," a velvet- voiced con man uses Ihc guise of an underground movement lo swindle the rich. He cons a child of wealthy parents inlo joining Ihe movement. The son or daughlcr then contacts Ihe family asking for ransom. The family pays, but murder is what they (jet. As Ihe show opens Archer gels oul of a heal-up convertible, walks inlo a posh Beverly Hills IIDIIIP to meet his clients. Their son lias wrillen he needs $50,000 lo gel oul of a Turkish prison. After taking the case, Archer gels into his rusty car, finds the kid, photographs him, and Ihen seems lo forget about his hoy for (he lira! )5-minutes. In that time. Ihe kid is murdered, Archer shows the cops his photos, finds the mastermind, and convinces an editor of an underground newspaper lo i n f i l l r a l e (he con man's headquarters. Days later, Ihe villain is captured. If TV represented realily.

J5minute, sound and cnlov film on crossing safely. "Lucky You." is the title of Ihe !Gmm production (lull is aimed directly al Ihe heart of the problem--driver awareness. Normnii D. Nelson, director of safely for UP, said Ihe film was designed for maximum appeal to Ihe inexperienced youthful driver. «!o may ignore the potential danger at railroad crossings. To accomplish this, Nelson said, the film takes a different approach from most safely films by using humor at the beginning lo pave the way for a message that is deadly serious. Giving Ihc film lasting impact is ,1 scene of an aclual grade crossing collision between a late model sedan and a train which vividly demonstrates ihe effccls of p i t t i n g a 1,000-pound aulomobilc againsl a 300.000- poimd locomolivc. Nelson said prints of "Lucky You" have been placed in UP's film library and are available on a free loan basis for showings. Showings may be scheduled by writing (o Audio Visual Services.

But (he screenwriter of "Archer." David P. Harmon, seems to know nolhing about plot or character. He assumes everyone knows who Archer is. The gumshoe's rusty car and his cheap suil are Ihe symbols o[ decadence. Just who is Archer? And wlial are his mulivcs' Archer just pops onto the screen. The other characters lire Ihc ghosts of mildewing scripts. As [oracling, Brian Keilli is so low-keyed he seems asleep. Bui this may be the faull of Ihe director.
