Million-Dollar Gate TNT's telecast of the Marcianc- Moore heavyweight championship fight on Sept. 21, 1955, brought the million-dollar gate back to boxing. The bout grossed more than $1,300,000 and the million- dollar TV gate has been achieved several times since. This points up the fact that the most successful theater TV sports events have been the major championship fights. But even these fights, when they have not been strong attractions, have not done well in closed-circuit theater TV. In the Marciano-Cockell and Patterson-Harris heavyweight championship fights the public did not respond sufficiently and many theater exhibitors lost money.

Why Westerns A/lost Popular Fare on Video By JAMES BACON HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Everybody knows that Westerns are the most popular fare. on television. But why? Let's look at "Tales of Wells Fargo," consistently one of the better horse operas. Dale Robertson, the Oklahomaa who stars, lays it all to teamwork. Practically all the present crew has been with the series since it started three years ago. Nat Holt Producer Producer is Nat Holt, an old timer at making action pictures. Director is Earl Bellamy, long associated with Holt in moviemak- ing and now on his 68th "Wells Fargo" segment. Chief writer is Frank Gruber, among the most prolific of Western writers. Everyone is compatible. Soreheads were weeded out early. Each show is filmed in two and a half days — two a week. That leaves no time for temperament. Featured actors are TV and movie pros. Robertson, who owns 51 per cent of the series, won't hire the new crop of Actor's Studio talent. Sweat-SUrted Idiots "Sweat shirted idiots," he calls them. Both Bellamy and Robertson are against memorizing scripts and long rehearsals. "I don't want anyone on th« show 'Jstening for cue lines," says Robertson. "The viewers sense the unnaturalness immediately." Seldom is more than one take needed for a scene. Secret; Talk Natural "Once you repeat a scene, the actors lose spontaneity," say a Bellamy. "The whole secret of making Westerns is to look and talk natural. If an actor fluffs a line, let him fluff because it's natural to fluff. It's unnatural to be letter perfect." Informality is encouraged. Robertson helps keep things informal. He never takes himself or bit acting seriously. But this year he will gross more than one million dollars from th* series — and that's serious money.
