$ JfelejkujgJ^ Thursday, June 14, 1973 in % VEftNON SCOTT HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - The caste system in motion picture- television employment is mofe deafly defined amoiij* directors than it is even for actors. If a television director decides to try movies he's out of luck. Producers have refined the distinction among directors further by separating them into dramatic and comedy categories. • A prime example is a youthful and excellent director named Jerry London who has been at the helm of "Hogan's Heroes," "Love, American Style," and "The Brady Bunch," to name a few. "But when 1 wanted to direct a 'Mannix' episode or otner dramatic shows the producers would ask to see some of my dramatic work on film," London said unhappily.

Vet producers say they are looking for new, young talent. They won't let you get away from the stigma of situation comedy." With nowhere to go but more sitcoms, London, together with "Brady Bunch" producer Lloyd Schwartz, raised $700,000 to make their own motion picture, "Goodnight Jackie." The film was shot in 17 days on location in various parts of Los Angeles. We didn't take any salaries ourselves," said London. "Our actors worked for scale and a piece of the profits or deferred payments."

They're all professionals who know what they're doing. "We were able to work fast because most of our crew was picked from television crafts men we'd both worked with before. Fortunately we made the picture during the television hiatus, so they were all available. Budget Moves "My apartment was used for one of the locations. We supplied pur own wardrobes and shot at the houses of friends. "Wendell decorated one bedroom for a scene with things from his own house. We cut corners wherever we could, but made sure we didn't gjive that feeling up on the screen." Neither man has illusions that the finished product will rank with "The Godfather" as a boxoffice hit. But the partners are convinced they have an entertaining, quality picture nonetheless. "It will appeal to young people," said Schwartz. "They're the ones who go to the movies. And it is something you can't see on television." London has more at stake than simply making ^a good movie for profit. "I think we have the ingredients of success," he said. "This picture will help | convince the guys who ask to see some of my dramatic work.
