Valley's Premiere xThe Godfather' Based On Best-Selling Novel llie Utah Valley premiere showings of Paramount Pictures1 "The Godfather," starring Marlon Brando in the title role, will open in Technicolor Wednesday at tha Paramount Theatre in Provo. The motion picture is based on Mario Puzo's novel, one of the top best-sellers of all-time, with more than 500,000 hardcover and 10,000,000 paperback copies in print With each copy of the novel sold, a new casting director was self-appointed and in barber .shops, beauty parlors, barrooms and at supermarket checkout counters, countless "experts" explained why their favorites were best-suited to play the title role, Don Vito Corleone. The signing of Brando, one of the screen's most charismatic and versatile stars, put an end to the speculation, only to trigger a new wave of discussion on the casting of the other major role, Limited only by the desire to find the best available talent, producer Albert S. Ruddy and director Francis Ford Coppola tapped all areas of the entertainment field to complete the starring cast for "The Godfather." Al Pacino, cast as Don Corleone's youngest son Michael, was an award-winning performer on the New York stage; James Caan, who plays the eldest son, Sonny, already had been recognized by serious film-goers for his work in such films as "Lady in a Cage," "The Rain People" and "T. R. Baskin." Two distinguished vocalists were signed to make their screen debuts in "The Godfather." Morgana King, one of the top Jazz stylists, portrays Mama Corleone, and recording and nightclub star Al Martino is seen as singer Johnny Fontane. Broadway performers Richard Castellano and Diane Keaton, both seen in the film version of "Lovers and Other Strangers," were cast respectively as Clemenza and Kay Adams. Other accomplished screen actors include Robert Duvall, as Tom Hagen, Academy Award-nominee John Marley, as Hollywood film mogul Jack Woltz, Sterling Hayden as McCluskey and Richard Conte, as Barzini. Following a year of preparation, "The Godfather" was photographed on locations in New York City and Sicily and in Hollywood from a screenplay by Puzo and Coppola. More than 120 locations in Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island were utilized, including Radio City Music Hall, Mott Street in New York's Little Italy, an ancient church on Mulberry Street, an abandoned diner on Christopher Street, numerous tenements, a deserted air strip in Mineola, an Italian restaurant in the northeast Bronx and the deserted Best & Co. department store in Manhattan. The noted Italian film composer Nino Rota, whose credits include "La Dolce Vita," "8," and "Juliet of the Spirits,' created the music for "The Godfather." Gray Frederickson was the associate producer and Gordon Willis, the director of photography for the film.

Gunn McKay has announced that the Atomic Energy Commission has issued a draft environmentaal statement on a proposal to lease about 25,000 acres of AEC-controlled land on the Colorado Plateau of Utah, New Mexico and Colorado for future production of Uranium ore..

The Utah Congressman also said the AEC statement was being circulated to federal state, regional and interested private groups or individuals for comment to be factored into a final environmental Policy Act of 1969. x He noted copies of the statement are available for public inspection at the AEC's Public Document Room in Washington, D.C, and at the AEC offices in Grand Junction, Colo., and Albuquerque, N.M. Copies may also be obtained by writing the Assistant General Manager of Environment and Safety, Atomic Energy Commission, Washington, D.C, 20545.

Podesta, assistant secretary of Commerce for Economic Development. The other four counties slated for the job development program include three in Michigan and one in Indiana.
