Flamboyance Is Out for Newscasters "I doubt that the big - name newscasters of 50 years ago - even 30 years ago - could get a job on a network today. A Floyd Gibbons or Walter Winchell would come in and audition now and he would be a joke funny." Chet Hagen is talking about the changes that have taken place in reporting over the past half - century. He calls them "startling." As producer of the news and sports segments of NBC's four - and - a - half - hour Big Event: "The First Fifty Years," Hagen has spent the past four months replaying tapes of the newsmen of a bygone era. "Most of the early newscasters were flamboyant," he says. "All were very dramatic. The delivery was much more rapid than today. None of the newscasters today has anything of that rapid - fire overblown delivery the old special events reporters had." In a way, Hagen misses some aspects of the older ways in newscasting. "In the early days kids had fantasies about growing up and going into that kind of work," he says. "I know I did."

I felt that every reader would have a different idea as to show Rhett should be played on the screen, and I didn't see how I could please everybody." So said Clark Gable of his starring role in "Gone With The Wind," to be colorcast in two parts as a "Big Event" Sunday, Nov. 7 (8 - 11 p.m. NYT) and Monday, Nov. 3 (8 - 10 p.m. NYT; 9 - 11 p.m. PT) on NBC - TV. Gable went to Hollywood in 1930 and quickly established himself as a premier talent, winning an Academy Award as Best Actor for his performance in the 1934 romantic comedy, "It Happened One Night." His public image as dashing, dangerous and adventuresome captured the hearts of literally thousands of readers of Margaret Mitchell's best - selling novel, "Gone With The Wind," and when news of a potential film based on it reached the public, there was near unanimity among fans of the book Clark Gable must portray the hero, Rhett Butler. Two - and - a - half years elapsed between publication of the novel and the beginning of filming and public consensus appeared to grow larger month by month. A dismayed Gable was even teased by fellow actor Spencer Tracy on the MGM Lot when Tracy greeted his friend with, "Hi - ya, Rhett!" 1 Channel 2 Ml I 335 TrolRnger St Burlington our new phone number it 2284571 Tuesday, November 2 7:00 pm - Election Coverage: Walter Cronkite anchors CBS coverage, with Roger Mudd reporting on activities in the South.
