%6 Golftsburg R^istftf'MQiL Gbltilairg, 111. Monday, May 14, 1973 Franco Zeffirelli Ho By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NEA) There is that tendency, these days, to smile pityingly when you say "ttollywooa." Oh, sure, it used to be a great place, but them days are gone forever. Hollywood? It's a has-been, folks, a relic with smog. The Lively Arte Just ask Pauline Kael, and her sister of the skillet. If a movie is made in Hollywood, they automatically hate it. Hollywood is a bad word, like "love" or "home" or "family." It was, therefore, a plea­ sant surprise to talk to Franco Zeffirelli, the great Italian director, and discover, that he's a Hollywood fah. He wit making his first extended visit here and his assessment of Hollywood was enough to re-create a feeling of pride in the old hometown. "HOLLYWOOD still means something around the world," said Zeffirelli, a charming, handsome, fair-haired Italian with a fine command of English. The man who made "Romeo and Juliet" was here for the opening of his new film. "Brother Sun Sister Moon." "I think." he said, ."that the best contemporary cinema is being done right here in Hollywood, or at least in America. It started with 'Easy Rider* and 'They Shoot Horses' and 'French Connection,' and that lovely film, 'Sounder.' "Hollywood has found its own style again. In the '60s, you had an invasion of foreign things. Now you are going back to your roots, building a new dignity after a period of critical decay. Hollywood was bearing the cross for the rest of the world but now you have more confidence in yourself." ZEFFIRELLI reports that he's found things in Hollywood SO much to his liking that he "IT tan Paul McCartney Isabel Martinez de Peron Beatles Won't Try To Make Comeback The j Juan D.

But Sunday's nationally televised $10,000 winner-take- Television In Review all tennis match between 55- year-old ex-champ Bobby Riggs and Margaret Court, 30, the world's top female player—on Mother's Day, yet—added a READ THE WANT ADS! and, what with his flair for Mrs. Court with some flowers promotion, almost singlehand- during the introductions, edly turned the Southern California event into a man-i versus-woman "showdown hopes to make a film here shortly. "I'd love to Wofk here," he says, and you can tell he means It* "The people are so helpful. I've been asked to do something and, as soon as I have a gap between my commitments, I am coming." What that something will be, he isn't sure.. Bobby Fryer wants him to make "St. Joan," but he isn't sure he likes that idea. Another possibility is "Much Ado About Nothing,"" the Shakespeare comedy, and Zeffirelli would like to do that—hold on to your wigs—with Carol Burnett. "I ADORE CAROL," he says. "She'd be a perfect Beatrice. I saw her five years ago and I said then that this is a complete star, a lovely actress. People said I was mad, that she was just a comedienne. Nonsense. She's a full actress and 'Pete 'n' Tillie' proved it. She's human, ! When Video's "CBS Sports Spectacular" series grabbed the event, showed it live Sunday, and the good-natured production—even aside from whether one was rooting for Mrs. Court or Riggs—was an altogether delightful television happening. Just What Tennis Needed the match began, it quickly became clear that Riggs had more weapons than one-upmanship. He played beautiful tennis. In effect, the match was over in a matter of minutes. Riggs almost immediately had Mrs. Court playing his type of game, although she is normally a power player.

Because of jthis single match, he has put 'some razzmatazz into tennis on the home screen. All that tennis has to figure out is how to keep him in front of the cameras. On the other hand, it is likely that, after Sunday's match, women's tennis, at the moment, is, to many televiewers about as intriguing as a junior varsity basketball game. ft is mystifying to me how Mrs. Court allowed herself to be corralled into such a match, with so much to lose and so little to gain. Played Right on the Nose But CBS-TV certainly played its production right on the nose. It began with a montage of Riggs and Mrs. Court in individual tennis action and a musical theme of Barbra Streisand singing "I Am; Woman, You Are Man." j There were interviews with! sports and show business celebrities in attendance about who they thought would win.
