Mv26,_ .1973 Old Film Glamor Rarely Shines on TV HOLLVIfaC«)v(tJI»l) - The old Hcdlywtfod, und the glamor thai made the town famous, art represented on television chiefs ly by movie reruns. But then is mtlc otytafyle Hollywood gla­ mor in the weekly entertainment series on Che hometube. Televistoa In Review Video's primary goal in its regular weekly shows is to find a performer or vehicle that will wear well, rather than to seek a program that might be brilliant at times but erratic. This conservative outlook is Hideout Lounge LIVE MUSIC FRIDAY & SATURDAY FEATURING Luv-N-Country 9 P.M. - 1 A.M. based oh (be constant network search for shows that will guarantee some consistent and sizeable share of the audience— for sponsors. There is, of course, a good deal of glamor on video in the many special programs, and in some of the guest stars on regular series. And it is true that old-style, big name Hollywood luminaries are no guarantee of ratings success in their own weekly television shows. A number of these movie stars have failed in their series attempts, although usually because of a wrong dr inadequate program concept. In the end, however, regardless of the various reasons and qualifications, the fact is that very few weekly video stars radiate the kind of glowing charm and rare individuality that added up to a sense of glamor and romance in so many old movie Headliners. The few television stars who have these qualities are easy to pick out. They would Include, for instance, Dean Martin and NOTICE Eagles and Auxiliary "Galesbvg's Members F«teS" FRIDAY, JULY 27 ALMOST FREE FISH FRY 50* Per Plate START SERVING 6 P.M.

And Peter Falk, whose home screen "Columbo" character—an amiable, feisty, dumb-like-a-fox detective — would fit into any era of moviemaking end delight audiences. And Rock Hudson, who turned to video as a police commissioner in the "McMillan St Wife" series. And there is Raymond Burrone of the best movie villains for years, but now a television hero after starring in the "Perry Mason" and "Ironside" series. And, although Doris Day's weekly CBS-TV situation comedy wasn't so good, you have to give the lady credit for holding the video audience for a reasonable run with some of the same qualities that made her a major movie star for years.

Before all that she was flighty and acted strange and she admits it. "The last time I was here," she says, referring to her Friday ELKS FAMILY BUFFET Teen Dance Viola Opera House Sun., July 29 7:30 to 10:30 Rock n' Roll Boogie Band One of Iowa's Best visit to promote "Ryan's Daughter," "I was anti-gringo, because I didn't know any of you. That made me insecure and insecurity makes people act strangely." . NOW SHE SEEMS much more relaxed, more mature. She says it's because now she feels at home among Americans — so at home, actually, that she has bought a home in MaJdbu and plans to live here much of the time. It could be something more than merely feeling at home, however. Living through the nightmare of Gila Bend could very possibly have made her become more serious, which seems to have happened. She won't talk much about Gila Bend, about the suicide) of her manager, David Whiting, and the ensuing investigation which got a bit sticky. Alt she'll say is that it made the part in the picture much mode difficult and it already was difficult. SHE ALSO SAYS that she is more difficult and it already go on working — "When something like that happens, there are only two things you can do. You can either cower in the corner or you can go out and face the world." She's facing the world, obviously. No corner-cowering for Sarah. She's not that type. She gives the impression of being a frail little thing but she's steel. She says that as a girl at England's Roedean School 1 , she was a star athlete. She rode, she played tennis and lacrosse and cricket with such verve that she once broke another girl's leg. THAT BACKGROUND helped during the "Cat Dancing" filming. She did her own stunts. She had to fall off a horse three times, once landed on a pointed rock knee- first. They took 14 stitches in the knee and, after that, whenever she did anything the stitches popped open. Also making the part tough was that, for the first time, she signed a contract before she read the script. When she did read it, she says, her temperature rose. She loved the book and had had a fantasy about doing a western but the script was inferior to the book and they had to work on it every day. "Cat Dancing" and another Miles film were released at almost the same time. First put was "The Hireling," an English film and you get the feeling it's closer to her heart.

MIAMI , (UPI) — Reputed underworld financial wizard Meyer Lansky won another skirmish with the government Wednesday when a federal jury acquitted him of two counts of tax fraud. In '50 years of legal skirmishes, the ailing, 71-year-old Lansky has been convicted in federal court only once—and that sentence of a year and a day for contempt of a federal grand jury is under appeal. Lansky served three months in jail in New York for gambling in 1953, and has served several short sentences on other local charges, Lansky is free on $250,000 bond pending the appeal. After nearly four hours of deliberation the jury returned its innocent verdict to U.S. District Judge Joe Eaton, i Lansky, whose ailments include heart disease, hardening of the arteries and prostate trouble, had been allowed to go home and rest, in anticipation of a longer deliberation. Lansky and co-defendant Dino Cellini had been accused of conspiring to defraud the government of taxes. In addition they were charged by a grand jury in New York of filing false tax returns in 1967 and 1968. Cellini is a fugitive believed to be in Rome, and federal prosecutors have privately expressed doubt whether the offenses are indeed extradict- able.
