(i iiKKKI.KV U'ulo.) THIHUNK Snl.J . l»7i Lemmon plays Olivier role in TV show NKW Y011K lllHtl - Take a Itritish play starring Laurence Olivier and turn it into an American television drama with Jack Lemmon and the result provides television with some of its best, if not brightest, moments. There's no way NBC could have gotten farther away from cops and comedy lhan with its presentation of the Mobil Showcase version of John Osborne's "The Entertainer," which airs March 10, 9-11 p.m., Eastern lime. 'The Enter- tainer" is effective but grim entertainment. NBC advises parental discretion because the show is intended for mature audiences. Aside from protecting immature sensibilities, how sweet it is to hive a television show actually shaped for adults and not for some retarded demographic composite of a post- teenager. The locale has been switched from a British music hall to a vaudeville theater at a cheap Pacific seaside resort during World War II. Lemmon plays Archie Rice, a middle-aged vaudeville performer whose search for success is as desperate as it it doomed by his own incapacity. Sada Thompson plays his wife, Phoebe, who finds her marriage as much a failure as Lemmon does his career. Ray Bolger wafts through the two-hour drama as Archie's father, hovering near senility but still the dandy he was in his heyday, when he achieved the show business success that has eluded his son. There's nothing cheerful about "The Entertainer," with its cast of unlikable people and its thoroughly downbeat view of life. That doesn't make its message any less worth expounding. Lemmon's performance well may be the best of his career. There's no Mr. Nice Guy in his Archie, who probably enjoys humiliating his wife even more than seducing a beauty contest winner with a rich father. Revolution in south begins at Moore Creek By SAM FOGG United Press International New England began the battle for freedom at a bridge at Concord. For the South, the first revolutionary test of arms came at a bridge over Widow Moore's Creek in the North Carolina swamps 200 years ago The fray on the morning of Feb. 27, 1776 lasted only three minutes and ended in a rout of forces loyal to King George III. It lacked the patriotic impact of a Concord or Bunker Hill but the victory by North Carolina militia and minutemen disrupted British plans for a military takeover of the southern colonies. Events leading to the clash at the crossing of Moore's Creek 18 miles from Wilmington had been set in motion by North Carolina's Royal Gov. Josiah Martin late in 1775. Angered at the rising rebelliousness of his subjects which had forced him to take refuge aboard a British warship off Wilmington, Martin evolved a strategy whereby British regulars coming from New York and England would join forces with loyalists in the colony, restore the authority of the Crown and stamp out revolution in the entire South. The patriots were equally angered at the bombardment and burning of Norfolk, Va., on orders of British Gov. Lord Dunmore and Martin's proclamation of Jan. 10 that rebellion must be put down with armed might. The governor dispatched a brigadier general inland to recruit recently arrived Scots for a Royal Highland Emigrant Regiment along with others loyal to the King's cause. The provisional colonial government countered by creating two regiments of militia under Col. James Moore of New Hanover County and Col. Robert Howe of Brunswick County and six battalions of minutemen, with Richard Caswell of New Bern and Alexander Lillington of Wilmington leading two of them. Martin's emissary, Donald McDonald, rallied 1,600 Highlanders and Tory sympathizers at Cross Creek in mid February, far short of the 4,000 that had been anticipated. Bearing their traditional claymores and dirks, they set out for the Cape Fear area to await a rendezvous with British redcoats. Moore, an unsung hero of the American Revolution, cannily dispersed his minutemen and militia to block the -move. Caswell at the head of wo Rangers reached the Moore's Creek bridge above the confluence of the Black and Cape Fear rivers ahead of the loyalists and dug in. Lillington and Col. John Ashe arrived with reinforcements on the night of Feb. 25 to swell the patriot forces to about 1,100 men plus two cannon known as Old Mother Covington and Her Daughter. Moore led his troops to the rear of the approaching Highlanders. Against the advice of older soldiers, two hot-mettled captains, Alexander McLeod and Farquard Campbell, won permission to lead an assault on the bridge. Swinging Highland broadswords, 80 of their men stormed the creek.
