Nolan, pause before a . Ryan, who plays Lt. Commander Vaughn and production scene is lo be shot at Mystic; Conn. American literary classic aired on KBTV Tuesday NOW APPEARING T ART ESSERY SHOW COUNTRY MUSIC GROUP A I? T I- S ' S E i ? f . S H t) " A great country music group from Canada. We've heard them and Know they are good! You'll love them! Appearing 9 to 1:30 Tuesday thru Saturday 8 to Midnight Sunday RED STEER Academy Award-winning actor Cliff llobertson stars as '"The Man Without A Country" in an upcoming 90-minute film adaptation of the Edward Everett Hale American literary classic; first published in 1863. The film will premiere as a special television presentation sponsored by Eastman Kodak Company Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., MST, on ABC-TV and KBTV, Channel 9; Denver. As most readers will recall, the story centers around Philip Nolan, a young Army lieutenant who declares in a moment of angnr: "Damn the United Stales! I wish I may never hear of the United States again!" Nolan's wish is granted and he spends the rest of his life at sea aboard naval vessles, never hearing of his homeland again until on his deathbed. It makes for a tale of both historical and contemporary interest -- especially timely now as the nation begins to prepare for the bicentennial celebration in 1976. In bringing Nolan to the screen, Robertsoni will be working with a particularly distinguished cast and crew, including veteran actors, Robert Ryan, Beau Bridges, and Peter Strauss. The film was shot last fall entirley on location at Mystic, Conn., Newport, R.I., and Fort Niagra, N.Y. II has been a long-time pet project for Producer Norman Rosemont who compiled a beautiful "concept book" -- summarizing the proposed film -which helped lo win Kodak sponsorship before production began. "The book was almost as big as a desktop," recalls Roger K. Morrison, Kodak's director of media. "It was one of the most thoroughly prepared and researched presentations I've ever seen, with magnificent line drawings to indicate key scenes. "In presenting the film," says Morrison, "Kodak's main goal, of course, must be to inform potential customers of our products and we hope for a very good return on our investment. '"The Man W i t h o u t A Country' will be colorful, entertaining and fast-paced. It should have wide, universal appeal. But it will also be a 'thinking person's show, offering something of educational and cultural value over and above good entertainment." And while a large viewing audience is expected, Morrison adds that Kodak is interested in "who" as well as "how many" will be w a t c h i n g . "We're hoping for a strong representation from the youth market because we think that this presentation will be of special interest and value to youth," he says. "We'd like teachers and librarians to encourage youngsters to watch, and we've been making an effort to make them aware of the broadcast." The story of 'ganges Safari' By JOHN SrNOR Copley News Service Now and again I search through the sixth-grade boy's English homework papers in hopes of finding a guest column. For this boy writes a little like 1 imagine Somerset Maugham did when he was 11. His compositions are usually full of blood and thunder, set in some exotic foreign land, and involve some remarkably defined characters and colorful dialog. (As a matter of fact, I have one of his stories on file and n You deserve a.break today The Big Mac. A triple-deck sesame seed bun, two juicy all-beef patties, lettuce, cheese, and a special sauce. It's a meal in a stack. For very little money. The kind of big break you deserve. So get up and get away to McDonald's. 2440 8th Avenue ·McDonald* can hardly wait until next Thanksgiving. You will be amazed at the story of the first turkey eaten in this country.) Anyway, I was stacking up papers that had collected on a table in the living room the other day when I ran across the tale of "The Ganges Safari." A little nugget of a story, although a bit violent, perhaps. (And right at this point I would like to remind Mr. Sam Peckinpah of the film industry that all movie rights are protected under copyright law, although we are perfectly willing to sit down and negotiate at your pleasure, Sam.) The story of "The Ganges Safari" begins on a swelteringly hot day on the Ganges River. ... "A swelteringly hot day on the Ganges River in India as Commander H. G. Huntalot (footnote: of the Southampton Huntalots) is sitting in the compartment atop his elephant. "His porters walk behind and in front of him, their every step an eternity of pain, while Huntalot has iced tea and tea cakes at leisure while the porters plan ... a mutiny! "They reach the deeper jungle by nightfall and all bed down for the night. The chief porters and Francs, the French gun-bearer, as they eat their scanty morsels of food, plan to attack Huntalot and his fellow hunters. ."The only thing Huntalot did for the natives was give them pith helmets to shade them from the sun. '"I don't want those heathens goin' crazy from stroke,' said Huntalot. "The helmets would come in handy -- much gunfire would be present. "Huntalot's friends came, luckily enough, the next morning, for the uprising would be that night. "Midnight. The non-mutineers hid in he trees, as the mutineers loaded their arms, brandished their swords, and started making queer noises as to awake the hunters. "'MALGWASI!' (footnote, 'Fire!' in English), screamed the Indian leader, and the whole thing turned into a free- for-all. "In ten minutes, every white man was murdered or grieviously wounded. The supplies were carried off, and loaded on elephants to be driven away. "Huntalot, struggling for breath, gasped, 'You'll never get away with this, Francs!' "Francs, -a suave Frenchman, slightly Americanized, smiled, happy to be free and yelled to the dying Huntalot: '"Au revoir, Boobbie!'" THE END. HOTLINE Celebs gather for party By NANCY ANDERSON Copley News Service HOLLYWOOD - I ask you where but at the Photoplay 'Gold Medal Awards party could you find Edd Byrnes, Franco Zefirelli, Chad Everett, Ben Lyon and Paul Lynde all dancing, drinking and stepping on each other's toes during one, glorious, madcap evening? I ask you now! This year's Photoplay party was held at the Beverly Hills Hotel following a taping of the awards ceremony on The Merv Griffin Show, and, good grief (or perhaps the exclamation "My stars" would be more appropriate), what a mixed bag of celebs attended! Sue Ane Langdon was there wearing so much gorgeous Indian jewelry that 1 thought for a minute she was Ann Miller. Ann Miller, on the other hand, wore something quite different though equally expensive and eye catching. Richard Thomas squired Sian Barbara Allen, his steady girl, while David Birney came stag, since Meredith Baxter, his steady girl, was away from Los Angeles doing a play in Dallas: Bill Elliott came straight to the party from the hospital where he'd been visiting his wife, Dionne Warwicke, and their new baby, a second son. Bill was in the delivery room when the baby was born and confessed-that he'd never realized the power of a woman until he witnessed the birth of his child. Among the guests were two Oscar nominees, Susan Tyrell and Robert Duvall, the second of whom had accepted a Gold Medal earlier that night for "The Godfather," proclaimed by Photoplay readers to be their favorite picture of 1972. Duvall's appearance on the Griffin show climaxed a little drama with as much suspense as some of the scripts in contention for the Oscar. Currently making a picture at MGM, he'd arranged to be free and at the Griffin show by 8 p.m. to accept the medal for the winning film, a Paramount production. However, at about 7 o'clock, he was informed that MGM couldn't and wouldn't turn him loose in time to pick up the award. An impasse developed which was resolved only after Duvall sent word to the top that he'd either be released in time to honor his Photoplay commitment or he'd refuse to give interviews or in any way cooperate with the MGM publicity department in promoting "The Outfit," his Metro picture. The edict did the trick, and he arrived at the Hollywood Palace where Griffin is taped in time to be the final guest on the show. 'Sounder' draws $14,401 in 27 days in Greeley HOLLYWOOD -- Radnitz- Mattel's "Sounder" has passed the $11 million mark in domestic box office gross, it was revealed by Peter S. Myers, vice president, domestic distribution, for 20th Century-Fox. In 427 engagements, the film has grossed $11,316,592 with amazing strength in smaller situations, where the film is just beginning to play, adding greatly to this figure and comparing favorable with such recent Fox recork-breakers as "The French Connection," "Patton," "M-A-S-H" and Butch Cassidy." For example, in Waterloo, Iowa, the first two weeks saw a gross of $11,557 compared to $11,637 for "Palton" and $6,637 for "The French Connection" while the first two weeks in Sheboygan, Wis., tallied $9,675 compared to $6,566 for "M-A-SH," $4,105 for "Patton" and $3,023 for "Butch Cassidy" over the same period. The first three weeks in Fort Smith, Ark., grossed $11,281 compared to $11,087 for "The French Connection" and $8,049 for "M-A-S- II," and Grccley, Colo, saw the Kadnitz-Ritt film draw S14,401 in 27 days compared to $11,157 for "The French Connection."
