riMMTirii -"innmi i I l' B-8 TIMES-ADVOCATE, ESCONDIDO, CA., FRIDAY, MAY 15, 1981 Canada's role in hostage escape focus of CBS special flUIIIIIIIII. ? SOFT I WATER I By JERRY BUCK LOS ANGELES (AP) Just as the Canadians were able to spirit six U.S. Embassy employes out of Iran during the hostage crisis, so did the producers of Escape from Iran manage to make Toronto look like Tehran. Stanley Rubin, the executive producer, and his crew found so many places to stand in for Iranian sites that they began calling the city Tehronto. Rubin even canceled plans to shoot the exterior scenes in a Middle Eastern country. Escape From Iran: The Canadian Caper, which tells how Canadas ambassador to Iran, Ken Taylor, and his staff rescued the six Americans and got them safely out of the country, will be broadcast at 8 Sunday night on Channels 8, 2. It was an all-Canadian production with the exception of producer Rubin, director Lamont Johnson, and one member of the cast. Gordon Pinsent, one of Canadas top stars, plays Ambassador Taylor. Tisa Yang, the only non-Canadian in the cast, plays Pat Taylor, because of the special requirement that she be Australian-Chinese and speak with a New England accent. "The Canadians are the heroes of the piece, and be- ' Oliver ' Boyfriend ' under way in Vista NORTH COUNTY - They dont plan small in Vista. Maybe the facilities in Brengle Terrace Park are currently inadequate for theatrical productions, and maybe the adult education department of the Vista Unified School District is slightly underfunded for a season of outdoor musicals, but the plans are well under way for such a season that may make Brengle Terrace the Starlight Bowl of North County. Oliver and The Boyfriend, two upbeat, family-style Broadway musicals have been chosen for presentation in late July. Kathy Logan, drama instructor at Vista High School who has staged Cabaret, Fiddler on the Roof and Man of La Mancha among others, will direct. The first round of auditions were held this week and cast members will be enrolled in a Vista Adult Education theater class starting July 6. Backing the project are Jack Price, Vista school district superintendent; Jim Porter, director of parks and recreation; John Downey, director of adult education; Vista Mayor Gloria McClelland and Marge Cosh, president of the school district board of trustees. Price is a devotee of theater and Downey has been involved as a performer and director of theatrical projects in other corhmunities. Porter has promised the parks district cooperation for constructing lighting and other necessities. The plan is for each show to have three performances on two weekends, with full sets, costumes and a small orchestra, Downey said. Logan will have the support of several colleagues. Ken Gammie, band director at Vista High School, will conduct the orchestra. Ed Perez, a professional dance instructor from Stage Seven dance studio in San Diego, will be choreographer. Richard P. Deussen, a graduate student in technical theater at San Diego State University will design the sets. John Mensching, who worked on Cabaret and several Palomar College productions, will design the lighting. Jazz, symphony share stage at UCSD concerts cause the man who started the movie, Les Harris, is Canadian, we felt an obligation to do at least part of it in Canada, said Rubin. We started out thinking of Tehran as a desert town. But we soon learned its a modem city and that it snows there. In fact, the day they got the hostages out there was snow on the ground. It was art director Carol Spier who convinced Rubin that he did not need to go to Egypt or Israel to film the outdoor scenes. She turned a large buildinng on the Canadian National Exposition grounds into Tehran Airport. Portraits of the Ayotollah Khomeini and slogans in Farsi, the Iranian language, were posted, and men in military garb were stationed as the six Americans went through immigration posing as Canadians. The Board of Education building in Scarboro, in north Toronto, was the site of the American Embassy. West Park Hospital was the chancellory and its cafeteria was the consulate. Many other buildings were used as various sites in Tehran. We were under a lot of pressure to get this movie out, said Rubin. We started in January and we wont get the answer print until two days before it goes on the air.
