Ggjesburfl Registe^Mdil; Galesbufg, 111. Wednesday, June 27, 19/3 p New Movie Talents Spawned by Television Roles By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NEA)-Cur- fcntly shooting here is a movie with the tentative title of "Newman," whieh shows how important TV has become in training new talent for the big screen, The Lively Arts "Newman" stars George Peppard, whose Banacek series for NBC has made him once again a hot feature film property. His costar is Roger Robinson, who hit it big as the drug addict in "The Marcus- Nelson Murders," the exceptionally fine TV movie. Producing "Newman" is Richard Irving, who came out of TV — he produced the first Columbo and parts of The Name Of the Game ~ and the director is Richard Hcf- fron. "I DIRECTED THREE Ban- accks and Toma, a pilot for a new series which has sold," Heffron says. "This is my first feature. I think the Ban- aceks helped me get this job, because George and I got along so well." Roger Robinson, who plays Peppard's detective-partner in this police movie, credits "Marcus-Nelson" with his big push. Out of that he got a leading role In "Willie Dyn'a- mile" and now "Newman." lie comes Ifrom a Seattle suburb called Bellevue which he says was a good place for a black youngster to grow up in — it was almost like living in the country. His father worked in a steel mill but wanted to be a singer and he thinks that may be one reason his parents divorced when he was six. His mother raised the chil* drcn and, after they were grown, she went to college, got her degree, and now is an elementary school teacher. "She's proud of me," Robinson says, "but I'm more proud of her." > HE WANTED TO act and tried Hollywood when he was very young, but all he could get was extra jobs. So he went into the Navy. "I played the oboe in the admiral's band at the Brooklyn Navy Yard," he says, "and I studied acting in New York whenever I could." He did many off-Broadway plays. After his discharge he came out to Hollywood again and made a movie. It was such a disaster he won't even name the film — "it was a horrendous experience, the people weren't nice and the New Beginnings Roger Robinson, left, takes a second crack actors are starring in a movie currently at a movie career and finds co-star George being shot in Hollywood called "Newmian." Peppard, right, "the complete pro." The two picture was a bomb." HIS NEW FILM career is' different. He says he's been working with nice people like Telly Savalas and Peppard. "George is a complete pro," he says. "He knows so much about this business I think he'd make a great director." He still lives in New York and now that he has some money, he's planning to indulge himself — travel and learn to play the piano. "Having money," he says, "gives me the time and the capital to do a few things I've always wanted to do. Otherwise, the money isn't important — I did without it for so long that it doesn't mean that much any more." Serving as technical adviser NBC Plans Roberto Clemente Film Drama By RICK DU BROW HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - A film drama about the life of the late baseball star Roberto Clemente, killed Dec. 31 in a plane crash while on a mission to help„Nicaraguan earthquake victims,,is planned for NBC-TV this coming season. Television In Review The network says its 90- minute presentation about the legendary Pittsburgh Pirates' player will deal in a major way with his off-the-field activities, and NBC-TV programming vice president Lawrence White adds: "The story of Roberto Clemente—the man—is at once enormously inspiring and overwhelmingly tragic. Through nearly two decades of major league stardom, Clemente never forgot his roots or his people, particularly youngsters. No charitable activity was too small to merit his attention, and, in the end, it was one of McGUIRES «• GALVA Family Night Join Us Every Thursday Night During The Summer For Family Night SMORGASBORD FRIED CHICKEN - MEAT BALLS & SPAGHETTI RAVtOlA Salads — Relish Roundtable — Garlic Bread Our Own Baked Rolls SERVING 5 PM - 9 PM GROUPS BY RESERVATION ONLY Adults $1.95 — Children Under 10 — 95c ; Phone 932-205? these missions of mercy which|and will (be a pilot for a possible series. —The two-part, four-hour production "Dr. Frankenstein," a new video adaptation by tragically claimed his life."

The producer of the drama that was filmed in England, Hunt Stromberg Jr., says: Victor Frankenstein is a young man and he's usually shown as a 50-year-old. Our creature isn't the Boris Karloff figure with the lumbering walk and the bolt through his neck. When he's first created he's beautiful. He's a sympathetic victim, a victim of greed and evil." Portraying Dr. Frankenstein is Whiting, who-starred as Romeo in the Franco Zeffirelli movie version of "Romeo and Juliet." The male creature is played by Sarrazin, and the female creature — Prima — by Miss Seymour. NBC-TV quotes Stromberg as saying: "Isherwood always liked the Mary Shelley story and felt it had never really been done properly." (T.A.) for "Newman" is a burly ex-Los Angeles Police Department sergeant named Dick Reed. He has worked with Peppard before. When George did "The Pendulum" in '68, he rode with Reed for a few weeks to get the feel of police work. Reed remembers the day when he was trailing some bank rob* bers who used machine guns. Peppard was riding with him that day. " I TOLD GEORGE," Reed says, "that if there Was any action he should get the hell out of the way. We got a call another bank had been hit so wc went over there. I told George to get lost. "My partner and I went into the bank. I turned around and there was Peppard, a shotgun in his hands, guarding one o£ the exits. He was doing it right too. Luckily, the gang had left. But he had seen there was an unguarded exit so he had picked up the shotgun and gone to work." When Reed retired, Peppard called him and asked him to come in and help the writers with the "Newman" script and he's stuck around as T.A. He's found a few mistakes and earned his pay. He likes it. Queen' Julie Tries a Role In TV Series By VERNON SCOTT HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - The reigning queen of the American theater is starring in a television situation comedy.

"Someone once told me that a good definition of actors is that they are somnambulists without recollection," she said. "I'm not sleep-walking however." Julie was perched on a couch in her rented mountaintop home above Hollywood. Her long, reddish-blonde hair hung straight below her shoulders.] Her blue eyes, set in a freckled face, were pensive—as always. A Youthful Image Long revered by other performers and the darling of critics, Julie is disarming. Her five-foot, four-inch stature gives her a youthful image. I don't think I'm an exalted person," she said, sipping a glass of ice tea. "That's for kings and queens. I've been lucky to have worked in some wonderful plays." Luck is a loose word when applied to Julie's performances in "Member of the Wedding," "I Am a Camera," "The Lark," "Little Moon of Alban" and "The Last of Mrs. Lincoln." Now she is co-starring with Richard Long in "Thicker Than Water," the new ABC-TV half- hour sitcom. "I'm enjoying it," she said with conviction. A Couple of Emmys Julie also won a couple of Emmys, for "Little Moon of Alban" in 1959 and "Victoria Regina" in 1962, "I feel as if I'm doing live television once more because our show is shot in front of an audience," she said. "Whether it's television or movies or theater it's my obligation to always do the best I can. By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb — I was interested in your column about boils, and it reminded me of my case. I'm 75 now. About 55 years ago I used to get large boils on my hands and arms. The doctor was a member of the club I still belong to and made a serum from the pus in my boi.V$. He gave me ihrec or four injections of the serum. I don't recollect how many days apart, but the boils disappeared forever. I wonder why the same remedy can't bo applied today. Dear Reader — Your letter touches on an interesting facet of medical history. The direction of medicine, like most other areas of science, follows the course of events. Fifty-five years ago we didn't have antibiotics, and before the days of antibiotics great efforts were made toward developing "stock vaccines." These wore made pretty much as you describe them. It was a natural outgrowth of developing a smallpox vaccine from cow pox, and the whole idea was to cause the body to develop an immunity to different infectious agents. With the development of antibiotics and their remarkable effectiveness, work in this area was minimized, compared to what might have resulted. The usual approach is to use antibiotics instead of worrying about the pos sibility of using a "stock vac cine." Possibly without antibiotics there would have been many more vaccines developed, which 1 in turn might have produced better results in preventing diseases. Immediately the dream of many investigators of venereal disease comes to mind — the thought of having a vaccine that would immunize a person against having the various venereal diseases. If a person could be successfully vaccinated against the possibility of developing gonorrhea or syphilis, and perhaps other venereal diseases, it would certainly be a great boon to mankind. This is not a now or original idea, and there has been considers- able work done on it, and no doubt someday this will be accomplished. Dear Dr. Lamb — I am 51 years old, and because of stomach, heart, and liver trouble, along with the tendency toward diabetes, I quit all alcoholic beverages completly. I also quit smoking eight years ago. My doctor told me coffee was aito bad, so I cut down to two cups a day. When I told him I was drinking tea he said tea was almost as bad as coffee. > I am not yet in a wheelchair by any means, but I would like to live as long as possible. Without generalizations, Dr. Lamb, could you tell me, on a scale of ten, the relative danger there is to a person with my medical problems of drinking tea versus coffee. Dear Reader — It depends on how it's made. Your doctor's comment is based on the fact that both tea and coffee contain caffeine and related drugs. As ordinarily brewed, a cup of coffee contains about twice as much caffeine as does a cup ol tea. This has to be a generalif zation because some people drink weak tea and other? drink strong coffee. But, that's your ballpark figure to guide you. You might consider trying decaffeinated coffee. Latex flows between the bark layers of trees rather than in the wood like sap.
