THE MARQUEE By Barbara Bladen Oaklander Peter Carpenter got- his acting start and his producing inspiration from another Oakland show business promoter Russ Meyer. The similarity ends there.

But in- being auditioned by Meyer for his film 'Vixen' and he noticed me standing with her in a photo. When he asked if 1 was an actor, she said yes, although I'd never acted in my life, never siudied acting or even thought about it. I got a role in this film but she didn't. That's how I got into the business." Unlike the good old clays of H o l l y w o o d when studios searched tor new faces and then groomed them for stardom, there is neither money, interest nor many studios anymore. So Carpenter figured he'd made his first and last film unless he set about to make himself into a star. During -"Vixen" he got an idea for a story in which he would play the lead. He sat on the sidelines during shooting and made friends with the camera crew, telling them of his idea and asking their support. With Chris Marconi, he wrote "Blood Mania" and formed Jude Productions Company. added a good acting We've done a n d d i r e c t i o n , great business everywhere its played so far. So I guess the formula works as entertainment. "When I'd finished shooting I didn't know how to gel distribution, but figured I could market my f i l m like I did the slacks. I packed up the color slides and a portable projector and went around knocking on doors." His second feature, just completed. is "Point of Terror," with a thhird due to begin in March, "Middle of Midnite." Number Four will not be a sus- end called "Legend of Vol-| canos." While he continues to star in his own films, a major studio offer has been made for him to star opposite Michael J. Pollard in Warner Bros.' "Dirty Billy." "Blood Mania" costar Maria de Aragon steps into a major role in "Cages" because of Shelley Winters' favorable impression of her performance. "The industry is in bad shape. The people in Hollywood don't care about films. They're only worried about lining their pockets," he said.
