The Idaho Free Press The News-Tribune, Saturday, February 28,1976 -- B-4 Ask Dick Kleiner Music to anger Gail Farrell, Jim Roberts and Mary Lou Metzger are featured on the "Lawrence Weik Show," broadcast Saturday evening at 6 on Channel by bick Kleiner DEAR DICK: I am in complete accord with your reader who wrote about music on TV shows. I don't understand why they spend millions on a movie or TV show and then drown out the dialogue with a lot of noise that's supposed to be music. Last night I tried to watch Police Woman but had to give it up because of the ridiculously loud noise. The only way to enjoy TV is to lake up lip reading and turn off the audio. To say, as you did, that we'd miss the music if it weren't there is true -like we'd miss the plague or the seven-year itch. --ROBERT E. Virv'SON, Tucson, Ariz. I still say you'd miss the music. But you're right in that often they go overboard widi it. It's like everything else in movies and television -- some producers have good (aste. some don't. And sonic figure tliey'll economize on (he budget by hiring a cheap composer to do the score -- and that's when they get cheap and overdone music. UKAR DICK: Please tell me whether Ann-Margret's husband, Roger Smith, played Rookie years ago on the old show, 77 Sunset Strip. I think he did. --ELAINE SADLER, Mobile, Ala. Think again. Smith was on the show all right, but he wasn't Kookie. Edd Byrnes played (hat memorable character. DEAR DICK: I've been looking for several years for an album of Tony 1'aslor's best recordings, if one was ever made, lie's the only one of the old-timers I don't have at least one album of. Tony had several great recordings, like "Let's Do It," ".Making W'hooppee," "Massachusetts." I'd like any info on such an album. --A.T. Thompson, Gainesville, Tex. My astute readers will correct me if I'm wrong -- 1 was wrong once back in '57 -- but according to the information I can find, there hasn't been an album put together of Pastor's big hits. In fact, the only album t can find that has any of his work on it is "Rig Bands Greatest Hits, Vol. 2." which includes Pastor's "Indian Love Call." DEAR DICK: Could you please tell me when Omar Sharif was born'.' Also, what was the first movie he was ever in and what are some of his more recent movies? -- A N N I E BALLARD, Cleveland, Tenn. Sharif was born in '32 and made his movie debut in something called "Goha" in '59. Among his latest movies: "The Last Valley," "The Horseman" and "The Tamarind Seed." DEAR DICK: During the '30s, my brother and I attended Saturday matinees at our local (heater. We would set a few cartoons, an Our Gang or Charlie Chase comedy, a seria'. chapter, a Pete Smith specialty, Movietone news and two westerns, all for a dime. We each had our favorite cowboy star -- his favorite was Tom Keene, mine was George O'Brien. Are they still living? -WENDELL L. ROBINETTE, Sockton, Calif. You do bring back the good old days. Today you see one feature and it costs $3 to $4.50. But anyhow, to your question Tom Keene died in '63, but George O'Brien is still with js He's 75.
