« GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Wed.,June 1.1J77 'Goidenrod' about rodeo rider By JOAN HANAUER UP1 Television Writer NEW YORK (UPD-Earlier this spring CBS broadcast a movie starring Michael Moriarty as a hockey player, which may have turned off many viewers who rank hockey right up there with tiddlywinks and girls volleyball as a spectator sport. The film, "The Deadliest Game," turned out to be a sensitive and beautifully acted study of right, wrong and individual responsibility. Now CBS is offering "Goldenrod," to be shown tonight at 8, Channel 7, following the career of a rodeo rider. Again, don't be fooled. The film only incidentally deals with bucking bro'ncs and rambunctious bulls. "Goidenrod" is a love story -- about the love of a man for hli sons, and theln (x him, about the troubled love between a man and woman, about success and failure and humanity. Tony LoBianco stars as Jesse Gifford, champion bronc-bust- ing rodeo rider, husband of an attractive and submissiveblond wife, played by Gloria Carlin, father of two sons who adore him. When Jesse hurts his hip in a rodeo accident, he can neither face the reality of his lost championship nor make plans for any kind of future. His wife is sick of trailer living -- she prefers "a place that stays put" to the finest trailer on the rodeo circuit. A woman who has always taken- orders, she sees life slipping away. When a wealthy rancher who also rides the rodeo circuit appears and insists she run away with him, she agrees. The boys refuse to leave their father, and physically run away from her. Hsr hurt that she means so much less to them than does their father keeps her firm in her resolve to leave. Jesse teams up with a dirt farming character named John Tyler Jones who drives an expensive car, drinks too much, and has a sly kind streak he hides beneath squalor and a high-pitched mumble. The character is played by Donald Pleasence, who is a delight to watch. The father and oldest son work out their difficult relationship. The boy has the strength of innocence, and eventually he and his younger brother -- with help from Pleasence -- get Jesse squared away. Along (he way Jesse learns what it means to resign his championship, and the dictatorial ways he assumed went with it, in order to allow his sons and eventually his wife to become persons in their own right. It's the acting that carries the day in "Goidenrod." The actors manage to rise above lines such as, "Son, there's more than one way to be a man," to turn in performances of depth and warmth. LoBianco in particular combines a macho spirit with a wide streak of real compassion for a film that reeks of sentiment but skirts sentimentality. Lee Van Cleef plays role of good guy By JAY SHARBUTT AP Television Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) -After a 12-year absence, Lee Van Cleef, the lean, hard-eyed Old West gunsel of "High Noon" and later Clint Eastwood's "For a Few Dollars More," is returning to television. Irony attends his return. He just finished playing a modern hit man in a movie filmed in Spain. Now, he'll play a modern U.S. marshal guarding an ax-hit man who is testifying against a,syndicate boss. Van Cleef's show, airing Sunday on NBC, is a series pilot called "No Where To Hide." He plays Ike Scanlan, protector of an informant to whom the mob wishes to render a .357 Magnum salute.
