Astln, director of the Bureau of Standards since 1050. Ills brother, Alexander, is director of research for the American Council of Education. And Astln himself has tutored analytical geometry and differential calculus. But of all his accomplishments he is most proud of Preludes," It's a story about a kind of love In America everyone experiences and no one talks about," Astln said. A critic has called it a tragic comedy about the death of the American dream. I find that pretty satisfactory phrasing. I think it's better to let the film speak. If you want to write an essay, you write an essay. I'll tell you what it means to me. For the first time it was an opportunity to do things my own way. It's an unfortunate thing in our business that the creative actor is unable to do this. I was willing to pay the price. I turned down everything else for six months and even put in my own money. I certainly don't regard it as a sacrifice but as an extraordinary opportunity to Jive well. To my way of thinking, that's what life Is all about. we find a way to be truly ourselves. I wrote, directed and produced it and acted in it. It was the most direct way to say what I want to say on film. I wanted to create a piece of cinematic art, just as people want to write a short story or paint a picture. It's a cinematic One had the GUTS... fine had th HUNS d Sr- "film VU7 i r..-ROBERT .

Simply, without any frills, rcrhapa like the Zen Buddhists. I guess If includes' has any appioach, it's that. On the surface it's a simple story. I don't say I tell U like it is but as It 1 because I was once an English graduate student. I'm loath to reveal the plot because I'd like people to find It out for themselves." About The Addama Family: AU television Is something of a compromise. But within the limits of television, I was able to get quite a bit across. TV is light entertainment and advertising and it shouldn't be criticized on other grounds." About his chosen career: "If I'm able to do creative things as an actor I'm where I belong. If not, I'm not where I belong. Then I'm Just earning a living. I could have been a mathematician. When I 6peak of acting I mean being part of the creative process. I've, never considered myself as just being an actor. "There's a real magic to the cinematic art if you're able to bring it off. I would say ivs a marvelous way to live. It's so richly rewarding it's worth the struggle, compromise and. privation one often must endure before one can reach the artistic endeavors." John Astin may yet prove to be Hollywood's first actor-mathematician. If you stop to figure it out, it all seems to add up. , , T OR IQYE Cf IYT" "SHA1AKO" U ! 1U HI t tM. MM. Mr tfi.
