Mondoy, July 2, 1973 .Author Susann Wants Hand inFilm *f By KliElMER HOLLYWOOD (NBA) , t> J<a<ct{iieftine Susann Is dealing ., from feftiWig'th this time, !'* "This time," she says, "it's ""going ito be ddiBferent.'' ^ iMss Susann as the lady £-whose books are automatic '1ftesil >*eJier8 amid the movies *"ftiaicte from them are, so far, The lively Arts ; tuitarttttic bombs. That's the " area She wants to change and she feds she has the muscle :'*to do it. *" Her new book (is "Once Is Not Enough." It's her third ~ novel and the third that became the Number One bestseller, a feat (that hasn't happened before, It's like a rookie becoming Most Valu- aMe Player his first three years in the big leagues. And, like her earlier ones, it will undoubtedly become a movie, although Xhis time she's dicftatiing strong terms. SHE HAS SET Ithree conditions for the movie stale and ithey aire firm land steadfast conditions. First, she is insist­ ing tot she write the screen* play, after consulting with the dftredor. Second, she and whatever studio buys the book wM agiree on a list of 10 mutually saifefacftory directors and the ullfcimaite choice must come from that list Third, she wartts a percentage of the gross. She got a $1.5 million sale ifirom her second book, "The Love (Machine." This time, she says, she isn't concerned about upfront money like that. She feels that if the pic toe is good — and with her doting the script and OKing the director she feels it has a shot — then ithe percentage of the gross will take care of her financial requirements. Another novel which has Hollywood excited is "The Covenant," by a delightful young woman from New Orleans named Paige Mitchell. She uses settings she knows — New Orleans and Mississippi, with the emphasis on Jewish communities in both places — and it should make a cmckerjack film. Her book already has been sold (to producer Stanley Jaffe) and is destined to become a major movie. Miss MiibcheM hopes it turns out beater than previous efforts to show the South on film. "THE SOUTH HAS never been honestly captured on lilm," she says. "I hated •Sounder' — it is a Disney lilm for liberals. It presented a distorted view of blacks in the South. "The hero (Paul Winfield) was arrested for stealing food for 'his family. That would never happen — the South is a paternalistic society. Blacks could be arrested for sassing a white woman but never for stealing food for their fam* fly." She says she cannot think of a single motion picture which presented a true picture of the South — "and certainly it wasn't 'Hurry Sundown.* " When it comes time to make "The Covenant" into a film she wants to be for away. She has no yen to mess with the screenpky. She isn't even overly concerned with the casting — "I don't think in terms of actors.'' This is rather curious, because she is now associated by marriage with the Hollywood community. Her husband is Abe Glronis, a screenwriter. BUT, AFTER A childhood in New Orleans and 14 years living in Jackson, Miss., she thinks of herself primarily as a southern girl. She says the reason why so many sou/therners write books (isn't because they're brighter or more literary than people from ©tther sections "but it's because they have more to write about. "It's all around them," she says. "All you have to do is walk around with a notebook and you'll find stuff for novels. It novelists need conflict, that's why southerners are novelists — lite there is always a conflict." Rattlesnake Religion The band played and the snakes swayed at the National (spotted coat) is Rev.

And after this brief series, he will return in the four-part tale "The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club," which begins Dec. 2. In between these two serials, "Masterpiece Theatre" will loffer "a three-part thriller called 'The Man Who Was Hunting Himself,' by N.J. |Crisp." That begins Nov. 11, and will probably give veteran viewers of "Masterpiece Theatre" more reason to blink a bit at the title of the series. But back to Wimsey.

Bass and four other men were dancing, dapping and singing when he reached to take the fivenfoot rattler from one of the 400 other people at the service. The snake struck him just above the right wrist. As Bass shook the snake loose, its fangs ripped open his arm and blood streamed into his hand. He continued singing and Jumping for about three minutes, then the venom began to make itself felt and he was taken to the edge of the yard of the liti'le chunch. Other members of the group gathered around Bass and began praying and shouting over him. After a while, he was helped inside the home of the Rev. Listoh Pack and the prayer vigil continued. Later, several men were seen carrying Bass from the house, but no one would say where he had been taken. "I don't know Now Playing Thru Wads.
