He wanted a variety of experience, and in the "first six years after leaving Canada he appeared in three Broadway plays, a dozen movies and a number of roles on television. "When 'Bonanza' came along 1 got into it by the sheer circumstance of being there at the right time,'' he said. "I thought, well, you don't know how long it is going to run. We didn't think it would last long. The first scripts were bad." WEEK Black 4 Whit · U«C«tlMlvfciStrviM · UkrSctiAraihUt CALL 344-3637 W. Vo.

"When ' B o n a n z a ' ran three years and then five years I was past my 10 year limit," he said. "But it didn't make me unhappy. I was at peace with myself." To an actor, television series means steady work in a profession not noted for its permanence, and a successful series can make a performer wealthy. Yet it also is the cause of a lot of grumbling by performers that it is a grind and its too confining. "What's so bad 1 about a little confinement?" asked Peter Graves of CBS' "Mission: Impossible." "With the production slump and high unemployment in Hollywood I know about 80 per cent of the Screen Actors Guild would like a little confinement now." Graves, beginning his fifth year in "Mission," said he has little sympathy for actors who complain about being trapped in a series. "The most trying times in my career have always been the periods of Inactivity between assignments," he said. Other veteran series actors surveyed feel the same way. Milburn Stone has spent the last 17 of his 68 years playing no other role except Doc A d a m s on CBS's "Gunsmoke."

"I'm going to work as long as I feel good, and I'm feeling better all the time," he said. "I don't ever want to retire. I've always said the only kind of a retired actor I'd want to be is a dead actor." Stone, who modeled his gruff portrayal of Doc after his own grandfather, said, "I don't yearn to play anything else. Not any more. I wouldn't want to finish my career doing anything else. I'm finding out new things about Doc all the time." Resting between takes on the "Mission" set, Graves said one thing that keeps the series interesting for him is his constantly changing role. "It's the role playing within role playing, he said. "I adopt * different undercover role playing," undercover role every week. This week I'm an Insurance investigator and next week I'll play a pool shark. It changes, whereas my brother is Matt Dillon every week." His brother is James Arness, the star of "Guns- TV Movies Thursday "Adam's Woman," 11:30 p.m., Q with Beau Bridges and John Mills.

I think Jim now believes he's got the greatest job In televi- sionl" The rotating series, such as NBC's "Mystery Movie," has been a boon to actors in relieving the weekly tedium and has helped lure such stars as Rock Hudson and George Peppard to the medium. Hudson is returning in "McMillan and Wife" on the Sunday "Mystery Movie" and Peppard will star in "Banacek" on the Wednesday "Mystery Movie." "Stars hate to work shows back to back," said producer Leslie Stevens, who helped create the rotating concept with "The Men From Shiloh" and "The Name of the Game," "Actors are like thoroughbred horses. They fall apart if you don't give them time off." Arthur Hill is beginning his second year in "Owen M a r s h a l l , Counsellor at Law." On ABC, but before that he spent years on Broadway in such long running plays as "The Matchmaker," "Look Homeward Angel," "A Death in the Family" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" "It's the same with actors in long run plays," Hill said. "After a few months some can hardly wait to get out. I've never been of that breed. I want it to go on and on." Some actors, like Greene, have turned to movies as "a stretching exercise." He was a Russian agent in the TV movie "Destiny of a Spy" and a taciturn farmer in the TV film version of John Steinbeck's "The Harness." Others, like Michael Landon of NBC's "Bonanza," have turned to writing. "I took up writing because I wasn't really busy enough," he said. "When I'm not busy enough, like most people, I begin to get depressed." Is he bored with the series? "It all depends on the episode. If it's fun or has something you can get hold of it can be great. It's like any other Job, you have good w e e k s and bad weeks." SUNDAY GAZETTE-MAIL
