Golesburg Register-Moil, Galisbura, III. Thursday, Moy 17, 1973 7 Television Can't Afford Bronson Even for Mini-Series HOLLYWOOD (NBA) You may wonder why Charles Bronson, that International hero, doesn't do a television series. Ilia aniwir is simple: he costs too much. And he admits It. with a kind of understandable pride. "They don't hound me to do i series," ha says. "When they find out what I earn they donH bother me. I don't think T*e Lively Arte I'll aver do one — not even a mini-series. Besides the money thing I don't like them.

HE WAS shooting another of his (formula?) movies, about a cop and a gangster. This one is called "The Complete State of Death," and it's being directed by Michael Winner, who was at the helm of Branson's "The Mechanic." Winner is one of the fastest directors. He prides himself in his speed. As usual, he was ahead of schedule and the schedule called for 78 Los Angeles locations in 46 days. He was shooting in Echo Park, a little oasis of apart' ments, built around a lake, only an orange-throw from downtown Los Angeles. By the afternoon, he would be finished here and move to a location in Pasadena. He'd shoot a scene and, within 10 minutes, be ready for the next one. Bronson didn't have much chance to relax and get the sun. He kept moving his chair and his picnic basket full of snacks around, following the sun. "WE'RE MOVING right along," Winner said. "I'm a week ahead of schedule. On most productions, there's a lot of time wasted on lighting. I always lean on my lighting cameraman. "We're doing 30 scenes a day. I heard of a much cheaper film which is doing only eight. That's ridiculous — if we can do 30 perfectly well they surely can do more than eight. I don't work fast to save money. I enjoy working quickly." Bronson shifted his chair again and stuck his face up to catch the sun. "I have no desire," he said, "to do anything more important or weighty. All that is so much nonsense. That's why Shakespeare isn't successful with the general public. The best acting isn't groaning or yelling or crying. The best acting is subtlety. "ACTING — IF you're successful at it —is the greatest ON THE GO — The fast pace of shooting "The Complete State of Death" keeps English director Michael Winner, standing, and Charles Bronson on the run from one setting to another in Los Angeles. NEA career in the world. If you're not successful, it's terribly frustrating.

Bronson has sold himself. Around the world, he's probably today's most successful actor although his reputation here has yet to catch up to the rest of the world. Even though overseas he's the biggest, he and his wife, Jill Ireland, would rather stay here and work here. He always can find something to do here, which is why he's in "The Complete State of Death" at the moment. IT IS, AS Winner says, "a meat - and - potatoes picture." The English director accuses Hollywood of being "scared to take chances these days and artistic ideas are out — Hollywood is sticking to the tried-and-true." This film is a production of the famed Italian movie­ maker, Dino DeLaurentiis, the first of a slate of seven he is planning to make in the U.S. "Los Angeles is my least favorite city," Winner says, "but economics dictate that we shoot here. The crew lives at home — we don't have to put them up in hotels." He shot the earlier "The Mechanic" here and says he is able to find places in Los Angeles that have never before been filmed. •T SCREENED 'The Mechanic' on the so-called Bel Air circuit," he says, "and people asked me where I had shot it. " 'What do you mean, where did I shoot?' I said. 'I shot right here in Los Angeles.' They didn't recognize their own city."
