(NEA) "Zandy's Bride," shooting on location here, is a love story set in the 1870s. There has to be complications to any love story and this one has several. One of them is Susan Tyrrell. The Lively Arts She plays a semi-Spanish girl who temporarily comes between Gene Hackman and Liv UJlmann. Susan is the brilliant young actress who won an Academy Award nomination last year as the blowzy barfly In John Huston's "Fat City." This isn't a big part but she wanted it. She wanted, mostly, to work with director Jan Troell. She says she saw his great film, "The Emigrants," and immediately sat down and wrote him a letter. "IT WAS THE first letter Vke that I ever wrote," Susan says. "I said I'd lie down on the railroad tracks for him. A couple of weeks later I met him in Los Angeles. He'd seen 'Fat City' and said he'd like to work with me, too ; " So it came to pass. She's playing a tramp here, as she did in "Fat City," and that's the only thing she doesn't like. "I don't want to be a tramp the rest of my life," she says. "I want to go to Europe. I don't want to make any more American films. They do heavier stuff there, a better level of awareness, especially for women. "I hate playing something less than I am. It's humiliating to play someone who is below me. I want to play someone who has a lot of colors to her." THERE IS MUCH more to Susan Tyrrel^ than meets the eye — and ithere's plenty that meets the eye — and probably a lot more to her than meets the ear, too. She's a complicated woman, full, of unexpected twists and turns. You think you have her pegged as an unsophisticated, up-to-the-second sort. "Drugs have shown us a lot of things," she says. "I think we're in a state of shock right now from what we did to ourselves — overdosing, hurting ourselves. But there's no doubt in my mind that the religious, the spiritual and the visual doors that they opened are there and you have to treat them with extraordinary respect. "DRUGS MAGNIFY where Here U Schedule Susan Tyrrell ... another tramp role you are. If your head is a garbage can that's what gets magnified." But there's the old-fashioned girl in her, too. She has a boat. She says she is happiest when she's on the water — "the land makes me sad." And she talks about Disney ' and animation. "I was a Walt Disney baby," she says. "All of us, the acid generation, were. I used to cry every time I'd see Dumbo. I believed everything. My father was an agent and he got a\l the drawings. I had 65 from 'Fantasia' in my room." Now she writes songs. She sculpts. She sails. She acts. And, mostly, she lives. in Corner Bar Prairie Piayeri Prairie Players will present their third children's show, Beauty and the Beast, this weekend at the Prairie Players Theater, 6$8 W.

By RICK DU BROW HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - On Aug. 3, Gene Roche bows in as costar of a returning ABC-TV summer series, "The Corner Bar," and a lot of viewers will look at him and say: "There's that guy from the commercials."

Commercials are a tremendous source of income for performers, and the public knows that. But the same public would probably be very surprised to see the list of acting credits for some of the veteran performers who do commercials but are not major headliners.

Roche's credits, according to the ABC-TV summary, include performances in San Francisco productions of "O'Casey, Brecht, Beckett and Ionescu plays. He played ... in 'Waiting For Godot' for two years." In New York, he appeared in such stage productions as "Under Milwood," "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," "Mother Courage," "Blood, Sweat and Stanley Poole," "All in Good Time," "Great Day in the Morning," "In the White House" and "The Price." Has Movie Credits Too He also has movie credits, among them "Slaughterhouse Five" and. "Cotton Comes to Hairlem." Furthermore, he is in the forthcoming film "W" with Twiggy and in the soon-to-be- re 1 e a s e d "Newman" with George Peppard. He has also been in a number of television shows. In Roche's case, as with many character performers; doing commercials is a way to provide a measure of security that only a relatively small percentage of actors and actresses have. Roche, by the way, has nine children ranging in age from 19 to one. He and his family live in a 13-room farmhouse in New York state, and when "The Comer Bar" iarrives Aug. 3, Roche's wife, children—and peers—will be tuning in with the knowledge that, while commercials have-been helpful, it (took plenty of acting years for him to break through. Professionally speaking, Gene Roche has been around. The area drained by the Amazon River is so extensive it would cover three-fourths of the United States.

(UPI) Attorney Joseph Levin Jr. said today he has asked a federal court to dismiss a $5 million damage suit he filed on behalf of two young black girls sterilized by a federally funded clinic. "I cannot tell you why I'm seeking the dismissal," Levin told a UPI reporter. Levin said his dismissal petition offers no reason for the request. He said it was filed Monday in the court of U.S. District Judge Robert Varner. The petition asks for dismissal of the suit "without prejudice," which would permit it to be refiled at a later time or in a different court. Levin and attorney Morris Dees Jr. filed the suit last month, accusing a local poverty agency of illegally sterilizing Minnie Relf, 14, and Mary Alice Relf, 12. The suit claimed the girls and their mother, who can't read or write, thought the clinic was giving them "some sort of shots." Levin and Dees later asked Varner to disqualify himself from the case on the ground Demolition Derby STRONGHURST — The Illiana Demolition Derby will be held at the Henderson County Fairgrounds here today at 8 p. m.

The attorneys accused Varner of saying the sterilizations possibly were performed because the girls had had children, or perhaps venereal disease. The 5th U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals at New Orleans refused Monday to disqualify Varner from the case. COUNTRY MUSIC SHANGRI-LA INN 421 East Main EVERY THURS., FRI. & SAT. NIGHTS THURS.
