Wed., March3,1976 CREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE 33 Pofsy Kelly still active Can Susan Succeed? By JOAN HANAUER DPI Tdtvlilon Writer NEW YORK UPI) - Can Sunn Clark succeed as a prosecuting attorney for NBC after Anne Meara failed as a defense counselor for CBS last fall? The verdict is up to the network, but one piece of evidence will be audience reaction to the two-hour pilot of "McNaughton's Daughter, to air March 4, 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. NBC says the premiere is the forerunner of a three-part mini-series of one-hour dramas. If the verdict Is favorable, Susan Clark will have the starring role In a new series next fall. Miss Clark, who did so well as Babe Didrlkson Zaharias in the CBS movie "Babe" last year, is a charmer as the daughter of a famous defense Come to the Family Place!

What Miss Clark will need to put her show over the top is better writing than Miss Meara struggled with in "Kate McShane." In the pilot, at least, she's got it. The plot has some of the fascination of watching lady wrestlers -- District Attorney Ricardo Montalban assigns McNaughton's daughter to prosecute a woman accused of first degree murder. The gimmick Is that the accused is Grace Coventry, as in "Grace Coventry's Crusade Against Hunger" --a woman of saintly aspect who wears a nunlike hood in her much- publicizedmoney-raising efforts for starving African children. Vcra Miles plays the outwardly serene and actually supremely bitchy Grace Coventry with a chilling competence that warms the heart. There's nothing like a really rotten villainess to compel attention. Ralph Bellamy plays the old defense attorney with his customary larger-than-lifeflair. Mike Farrell, who plays B. J. Hunnicutt on "M-A-S-H" and usually is typecast as a television Mr. Nice Guy, is convincingly slimy as a famous defense lawyer with the scruples of a snake. There's no question of whodunit -- the lady did it with her vial of African arrow poison. But why? And how to prove it? That's what Miss Clark must discover -- and, of course, does. Miss Clark plays her as part tomboy, part clothes horse, moving with coltish grace and easy good humor. It's an old-fashioned kind of show, complete with courtroom drama and the obligatory car chase, that likely will have more appeal for the older segment of that 18-49 audience Chief Red Cloud Geronimo Indian portraits exhibit at Greeley Mall The Greeley Mall is hosting an exhibit of historic Indian portraits through Saturday. The collection of 132 portraits is the nucleus of the Peace Jubilee Collection, first shown at the Indian Congress of the Trans-Mississippi Exposition in Omaha in 1H98. F. A. Rhinehart, official photographer for the exposition, took 500 portrait photographs of the leading Indian figures of the day during the Peace Congress, and the 132 now comprising the exhibit provide a graphic piclurization of many of the best- known Americans whose names have become legendary. Among the photographs to be displayed arc those of the famous Apache chieftain, Geronimo; Red Cloud, war chieftain of the Sioux; White Swan, Custer's Crow scout; and Chief American House, the great Indian orator. Book reviews Indians from a majority of Ihe American tribes gathered at the Peace Jubilee in 1898 under federal sponsorship as a means of confirming the cessation of hostilities between Ihc red men and the whites, and their gathering gave Rhinehart his opportunity lo put together the unparalled collection. The Historic Indian Portraits collection lias been prepared for exhibit by William M. and Vera P. Iteiske of Salt Lake City. The two are authors of the illustrated book "Historic Indian Portraits," regarded as the definitive work of its kind on the American Indian of the 19th Century. The photographs, along with other documents, books and displays relating to Indian culture, will be on exhibit during Greeley Mall hours, Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There is no cliarge for admission. By United Press International Patsy Kelly's face may be Ihe one that sparked the coinage of the old saying, "She's got the map of Ireland on her..." And her voice during decades of stage and movie roles had a stridency that evoked grins among millions in her audiences. She appeared in 65 motion pictures, starting in Ihe pre- Depression days of the 1920s. Her pasty complexion, oval countenance, lank hair, authentic Brooklyn dialect and carefree smile hulped her achieve status as the ideal foil to female stars going back to Jean Harlow. Patsy was the girl who always seemed to be in the role of the Irish maid in an aristocratic household. Or the dressing room confidante of the high-strung actress who was about to go on stage. She reached her greatest popularity as a comedienne in 24 farces with the late Thelma Todd. Patsy was forever exasperated in her roles. In her early years she found it hard to accept that she was a girl. Her parents sent her to a tap dancing school to keep her off the streets. And at age IS she inipprl (ho rplohratpii Frank Faye in his vaudeville act at the theater thai was the summit for that craft -- the Palace in New York. She appeared on Broadway in Earl Carroll's "Vanities" and then went to Hollywood. There, for 15 years she was with Hal Iloach, the redoubtable master of the comedy motion picture. She also was one of the most durable of character actresses. In 19G7 she had a straight role in "Rosemary's Baby." That was followed by a number of television cameo performances. Now, at age 67, she is working on a television series called "The Cop and the Kid." During the last several years she has been appearing in theatrical road shows of the revivals of "No, No, Nanette" and "Irene." I^st month she was given a surprise birthday parly. Among the guests were two old friends, Kuby Keeler and Jane Powell. Arthur I (alley's latest novel, "The Moneychangers," will be dramatized us a four hour NBC-TV movie with Uoss Hunter producing.

Tenth St. (Across from "Ted Chefs") Growing (Up) at 37. by Jerry Rubin. (Evans) A leader of youth revolution of the 1960s discovered, as he approached middle age, that he no longer was sure he knew all the answers. Over the next few years he re-examined his values with the help of consciousness-raising therapy such as "RST." This highly personal account of the experience is thoughtful and seems honest. The former Yippie has changed. He has decided, for instance, that his famous slogan, "Kill your parents," really meant, "Kill theparents- in-you." The Last European War, by John Lukacs. (Anchor Press- Doubleday) Here is another study of World War II, this one by a respected historical philosopher. It covers the war's first half and its emphasis is not on events but on what the author terms "historical movements" -- the sentiment of nations, the cpnvergence of thoughts and beliefs, the relations of state. The approach results in many intriguing reflections and cogent conclusions that are often arguable but always stimulating. The Running of Beasts, by Bill Pronzini and Barry Malzberg. (Putnam) This recycling of Jack the Ripper puts him in modern dress and boasts some clever twists that add excitement lo a rather worn manhunt format. After three women are murdered in a small town, a psychiatrist speculates that the killer suffers from a mental disease that makes him unable to remember his actions. Four locals immediately decide they arc the Ripper, complicating the efforts of police and the traditional amateur detective newspaper reporter. The Ninth Man. by John 1-ree. (Doubleday) In the tense, early days of World War II, a White House security aide begins to suspect that a German agent is loose in Washington with the specific assignment of murdering the President. He is the ninth man, the one that escaped when eight spies dropped off by U-boats on the beaches of New York and Florida were captured.
