58 Aklaub2!irribtntt Tues., Jan. 25, 1 966 f? v Niqht Sounds jfo has been about 18 years since Rusty Draper began entljtaining folks in these parts. You may recall he was a! miinstay at Will King's out oh Geary. Street in San Francisco. During his stay at that club, Rusty built up tremendous Bay Area following that remains to this dayHe went on to become a recording sensation his records have sold in the millions and he is a solid draw on the nightery circuit. Rusty hasn't lost any of the warmth, earthiness or feeling for an audience that projected him intqfthe limelight. He's the same lovable redhead whom everyone remembers. He's as busy as ever on the nightery circuit with ap-, peajrances all over the world. He's liable to be in London one night and Jackson Hole, Wvfeminsr the next. He came to the Safari Room in San Jose, where he is currently appearing through Sunday night, directly from Mexico City, a long hop in anyone's show biz itinerary. Recently, Rusty entertained the troops in Saigon and calls it "a most thrilling ex-p e r i e n c e." In most instances he worked alone and without amplification for his guitar. Shows of this type depend a great deal on the performer's ability to improvise under existing conditions., No problem forRus-ty. He's a pro at making the best of a situation. As hard as he works on stage, he :i-w- probably worked even harder for the American troops in Saigon. They loved every minute of it. Although he features some of the old favorites hi his act, he never lacks for new material and is regularly adding new songs to supplement the old. He has also remained active in the recording field. His next recording "I Just Destroyed the World I'm Living In," will be released soon. All in all, it has been a great 18 years for Rusty Draper. He shows no signs of slowing, and could possibly go another 18 years. That's all right with me, and probably with thousands of others in the Bay Area. Looking for a pleasant mid-week diversion? Suggest you drop into the Maya Cocktail Lounge of the La Morena Restaurant at 1229 23rd Ave.; Oakland. Eddie Diaz serves the best margarita in town which is reason enough if your hooked on margaritas. But an even better reason is Carlos and Manuel," now appearing there Wednesday-through-Saturday nights. The setting is lovely, an air of friendliness prevails and you'll enjoy the vast repertoire of Mexican songs Carlos' and Manuel offer. And if you have a favorite, chances are they know it. Just ask. You'll find them quite accomodating. .... More change at the Holiday Inn. Innkeeper Bob Walker, who is bringing an entire new image to the Inn, is having the dance floor moved this week. It will be relocated directly in front of the fireplace in the Den of ThefRed Lion room. This will almost certainly give the room an increased intimacy, and at the same time the danjje floor won't be as remote from the cocktail lounge as previously. The change should be made in time for the weekend swingers RUSTY DRAPER Eron 4 AAdmi mn, bieir By ALAN WARD Sam Landy, slim, dark and dapper, is the perfect type for a big-time movie gambler. That's as it should be. Sam for more than 30 years has been a gambler of consequence and currently is a vice-president of the Dunes Hotel and Country Club in Las Vegas. But it is Landy's association with the movies, the roulette wheels, blackjack " and crap games of Las Vegas, which is the theme of this composition. The stylish chap from Vegas, who as a young man consecutively was a dealer, student rabbi and a high school physical education instructor, dropped into The Tribune for a quick hello, and remained 90 minutes on-finding his interviewer had an academic but non-working interest in the science of gambling. Landy's knowledge of the bright and dark sides of gambling in the Las Vegas manner is so encyclopedic he has acted as technical director and adviser' for 20th Century and M-G-M pictures featuring a pastime lightly referred to as "games of chance." And, so completely does he symbolize the tight-lipped, polished casino boss or games , attendant he DQqqqiji DODO And quite a change at Sanford's Restaurant in Mont-clair. The plush dinery has new carpeting to set off several fine improvements owner Sanford Cohen recently completed. In addition, Sanford has expanded the menu to include many new dishes. The excellent service remains unchanged in fact, it is even more appreciated in thenew surroundings. PERRYGRAPHS: Sahara-Tahoe's big showroom opens May 12, a 1,200-seat theater restaurant .-T .

In real life Landy is far from tight-lipped. He is pleasantly loquacious and talks with a fluidity and precision attributable to his rabbinical training. In fact, so at home is Sam on the lecture platform he has given hundreds of talks on gamblingor gaming? throughout the nation. He calls himself "The Professor of Chance." He has a sense of humor and of the dramatic. He is about to make a recording of his patter. He may prove another Allan Sherman in that field. . . Sam invaded the movies as technical director and part-time actor years ago with the movie "Any Number Can Play," starring Clark Gable, Alexis Smith, Wendell Corey and a few other notables. . ' "The best, the most authentic gambling picture ever filmed," said Landy. As he tells it, he experienced a few problems with writers, but inasmuch as he was given carte blanche by Louis B. Mayer he contrived "casino scenes with which his fellow pros could find no fault. "For example," related Landy, "in the original script one of the dealers made reference to 'Lady Luck'. I threw it out. It. wasn't authentic. Every bit of gambling equipment used in the picture could have belonged to a big-time gambling casino. I wanted it right,' and it was." Other pictures with a strong gambling theme to which Landy ; loaned his - talents were "Powder River" and "Please ROAST-PRIME RIBS of BEEF from the CART PRIME RIB ROOM Believe Me." In the former he taught Corrine Calvert "how to properly deal cards. It wasn't easy .. " Miss Calvert," said Sam, not ungallantly, "at firsi was all thumbs." Landy, who in our sustained conversation tried, delicately but obviouslyiojsneak in small plugs for the Dunes, looks on gambling such as- practiced in Nevada with a forthright attitude surprising to a layman who has read or listened to glowing promises of huge winnings awaiting visitors to her neighboring state. "Most : people," said Landy without batting an eye, "shouldn't gamble. That is, if they want to make money, or break even. They don't know how. They'll permit themselves to lose far more than they'll allow themselves to win. In other words, they lack guts when the luck is ."running in their direction." 'Music' Sounds Its Last Farewell After - extending the run of its successful production, "The Sound of Music," several times, the Diablo Light Opera Company insists that three additional performances just scheduled will be the absolutely final ones. After two Sunday matinees on Feb. 6 and 13, and an evening performance on Feb. 12, at the Walnut Creek Civic Arts theater, the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical will close. - The production opened in September and moved into the Civic Arts Theater last month.

In fact, he wouldn't ThTreTa mustached dealer for a casino he'd operate. "People don't entirely trust men with mustaches," he explained simply, an observation which shouldn't add to his overall popularity. He has positive theories on the manner in which money cart be won at a casino, but this writer doesn't intend going into that matter at length. He'd rather give it serious thought, not to mention a couple more interviews with Landy. Who knows, maybe that system REALLY works? . - Just before he departed, bound for Las Vegas and the Dunes (with perhaps a speech or two along the way) Sam hurriedly mentioned the luxurious spa of which he is a vice president; has a multi-million dollar theatrical production going, and if I d care to visit Las Vegas one of these weekends , Incidentally, Sam never has smoked, doesn't drink and hardly ever gambles. He hasn't time for games of chance. He is too busy running the Dunes and making speeches on ad vantages -and-disadvantages -of gambling. The thought struck me that Sam Landy and the late Clark Gable must have gotten along swimmingly making "Any Num- Jjer-CanJ'lay' Filmmaking Course at S.F. Museum NOW APPEARING - !
