Page 12 Garden City Telegram Wednesday, November 30, 1977 Actor Wanted "Rain and Slush—and Stuff" By JAY SHARBUTT AP Television Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) - In recent years, this town has filled up with expatriate New Yorkers who work in TV and constantly gripe you can't get good corn beef on rye anywhere in Beverly Hills. But Frank Gorshin, the impressionist, actor, comic and singer, isn't one of them. In fact, after living here 22 years, he packed up his family last August and moved to Greenwich, Conn. Greenwich isn't far from Fun City. It's mainly known as the place to which New York advertising executives take the 5:40 train each evening. If the train is running. Why did Gorshin, 43, move out East? "I don't know," said he, here recently to tape an NBC "Just For Laughs" special, act in a "Wonder Woman" chapter and appear in a CBS salute — to.air Dec. 1 — to Elizabeth Taylor. "I guess I just got tired of the sun day after day. I wanted slush and rain and stuff." He commenced laughing about this odd desire. "There's a lot of truth to it, because I'm on the road a lot and see different parts of the country at different times of the year. But when I come back here, the weather's always the same. "It gets boring. I don't want to put the place down, but after 22 years here I miss all those seasons." Another factor in his East Coast move: He likes to act. Living here close to the film industry may sound ideal, "but I wasn't getting to do as much of it (acting) as I'd like to," he said. "And it's kind of frustrating. So I thought maybe if I get away from it, it might give me a healthier state of mind." Gorshin, a Pittsburgh native who began his career at age 17, is well-known for his night club impressions of big stars. At least 50 are in his mimic's portfolio, from James Cagney to Lee Marvin. Alas, the fame is a mixed blessing. He says producers and directors, unless they're fans and know he can act, sometimes are hesitant to offer him roles not involving impressions. "They may be afraid that if they had me on a show, I'm going to do Kirk Douglas or Burl Lancaster," he mused. Gorshin, who recently began a new role as a non- impressionistic spokesman on TV for RCA's new line of home video recorders, was asked about one of his most memorable acting parts in television. That, of course, was as "The Riddler," the cackling loony of ABC's famed "Batman" series of (he '60s. Has his enduring identification with the character hindered his career? "No, I don't think so," he opined. "I've certainly done enough different things as an actor. And I actually think it's helped me because it's still in reruns around the country. "I do a pretty clean (night club) show, I don't do any blue material. And families aren't afraid to bring their kids. So I'm always reaching new kids because of the reruns. "And they all want to come and see the Riddler."

Keith Sebelius has announced he will conduct the second half of his annual listening tour of the "Big First" district beginning the week of December 5. Sebelius said the second leg of the listening tour would cover 28 counties in the western portion of the district and total more than 1,300 miles. He concluded a tour of 29 counties visiting with more than 2,000 citizens the week of Nov. 28. "We expect the citizens of the western portion of the 'Big First' to be concerned over the same problems; the farm crisis, the social security and energy bills and inflation. If anything, the frustration will probably be higher because the farm crisis is so crucial the farther west you go," Sebelius said. Sebelius urged as many citizens as possible to attend the public meetings.
