%itontmB tQBe Discreef About If London Corners the Gambling Market LONDON — (NEA) — Ringed by racetracks, riddled by betting shops and gambling clubs, London now rates second only to Las Vegas as the gambling capital of the world. Monte Carlo is nowhere in the picture, according to those who know the three cities. London was recently in the headlines when one casino, the Victoria Sporting Club, spent $50,000 to bring 178 gambling-mad Americans over here for a five-day junket. The Americans were flown from New York in a jet which cost $35,364 to charter. They were bedded in some of Lon don's ritziest hotels. And they were under no obligation to spend their money gambling at the Victoria club. (Most of them didn't, but took off for short stays in Paris, Rome and on the Riviera.) "The object of the exercise was publicity," said one of the Americans before leaving. "Still it shows that London is really in the running, whon one casino can afford to drop 50 Gs on one publicity gimmick." London is in the running, indeed. The annual gambling turnover has now hit the all- time high of $2.5 billion, according to the Churches' Council on Gambling, an interdenominational group 6B RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN Sundoy, Jun« if, Location Films Leave No Time for Sightseeing, Actor Laments Gamblers turned in their slips at one of Britain's 15,025 betting shops, known by the more genteel name of "turf accountants." Bookies, being legal, openly advertise their services at tracks. Racine He ^'th Fund A movie thriller currently attracting much attention features an automobile with retractable machineguns that enables the hero to dispose of his enemies. The Racine Health Fund, a United Fund agency notes that too many vehicles now on the road can "becomes equally dangerous weapons harming innocent people when safety measures are ignored. Therefore it cautions: ... Be sure seat belts are fastened at all times; even when just dashing off to the store for a loaf of bread. Accident reports show that two- thirds of the drivers involved in fatal crashes were within 25 miles of home. . .. Dont* drive when angry or upset. Your strong feelings cloud your judgments and may produce poor decisions that hurts others as well as yourself. . . . When traveling m strange territory, study road- maps and determine toll road exits in advance so that in- so-far-as possible, your actions will be precise and accurate, consistent with your normal pattern of driving. Some drivers arrange to arrive in unknown heavily traveled areas in daylight "non-rush" hours so that hazards posed by the unfamiliar are kept to a minimum. .... Arrange for regular checkups of both your car and yourself. Correction of defects found in either will make you a safer driver. headed by tiie Archbishop of Canterbury. Horse racing accounts for $1.7 billion, or two-thirds of this total. The legalization in 1960 of betting shops (there are now 15,025 in Britain) has given the big boost to betting on the races, which shows a steady upward trend. Soccer Popular Fixed-odds betting on soccer matches and the soccer pools, which are the closest thing Britain has to a national lottery, show a turnover of $364 million a year. Greyhound racing accounts for another $308 million, bingo for more than $100 million. Unlike Las Vegas, which makes no bones about its chief industry, London is inclined to be discreet about its weakness for gambling. For example, bookmakers are known as "turf accountants." IVIany have lace curtains in the windows of their betting shops and old hunting prints on the walls inside. As for the gambling clubs themselves, they have rejected the brutal functionalism of Las Vegas for the elegance of the French casino. The green baize tables in London clubs are carefully copied from Monte Carlo. So are the fringed, tambourine - shaped lamps which hang over the tables. Even the croupiers are imported from France. Like Quiet Game At one of the so-called "sporting clubs" in genteel Knightsbridge, patrons are reminded by notices not to slam their car doors when leaving the club in the wee hours for fear of awakening the neighbors. Like the decor, the games played are mostly of French origin, but recently, as a concession to American tourists, the swankier London clubs have installed blackjack and dice tables. Britons, who prefer roulette, still look askance at the noisy Americans with their shouts of "little Joe" and "snake eyes" at the dice table. As for the 178 Americans who were brought over here free by the Victoria Sporting Club, they resented the press description of themselves as "big-time gamblers." "Most of us are business or professional people of slightly above' average income," explained Dr. Edwin Rosenblatt of New York. "We like to have a flutter now and again, but I doubt that my wife and I will spend $150 between us in gambling on this trip. That would be true of most of our party." Despite dark looks from the U.S. Treasury, Harold Halpern, the chunky New York jeweler who arranged the Victoria Sporting Club outing, plans to bring other groups over from America to gamble in London. He is critical, however, of the slow pace of the British. "It takes a London diceman 10 minutes to stack $100 worth of chips into four equal piles," he explains. "A Las Vegas diceman could do it in 30 seconds." Halpern has promised to bring some Las Vegas dicemen to London with him on his next trip. Lee Marvin at Last Nets Some Movie 'Whoppers' HOLLYWOOD — (JP) — Some day," complains Cliff Robertson, the actor, "I would like to bo a corny American tourist, with the loud sport shirt and the gaping mouth, following a native guide around some foreign monuments." That is his reply to those who feel that he has got it made. As Hollywood's trav- elingest actor, Robertson has had one all-expenses-paid trip for far-off lands after another. To the travel - hungry, this seems like the ideal existence. Six-Day Week "It may look that way," said Cliff during a brief return to his Pacific Palisades home, "but that's not how it turns out. "In the first place, you work a six-day week on foreign locations. That leaves Sunday for sight-seeing. But the kind of pictures I do—lots of action, and I'm in every HOLLYWOOD—(^)—"The acting business is like fishing. If you're really desperate to land that big catch, you'll never make it. But if you play it cool, you might come up with a whopper." The allusion came quite naturally to Lee Marvin, who would rather fish than act- almost. He was poised to leave for a deep-sea tournament in Mexico and he exulted over finding a rare, imported fish hook in a hardware store. You'd have thought he had won an Oscar. And he might do just that. The talk around town is that Marvin will be a front-runner for the Oscar next year because of his role in "Cat Ballou." Not only that, he comes on like a tropical hurricane in "Ship of Fools," according to preview reports. "I've been acting for 18 years and I've been in pictures for 15," he said. "I waited a long time for this to happen—and now I get two in a row! Boy, it feels good! Had the Opportunity It feels especially good because now I can die happy. Even if I blow the whole thing, if nothing happens afterward, I will at least have had the opportunity to make it to the top. If I hadn't known that chance, I would have been frustrated to the end of my days." Son of a New York advertising executive, Lee didn't think much about acting until after his war service in the marines. He got interested in a Little Theater in Woodstock, N. Y., studied at the American Theater Wing under the G.I. Bill and apprenticed in off- Broadway and television. His first film was "You're in the Navy Now" with Gary Cooper. "I played an endless number of angry young men," he said. "How far can you go playing angry young men?" He saw an out in a tele vision series, "M Squad." His reasoning: "Everybody knew me, but nobody knew my name. Every young actor should do a TV series to establish himself. That's the only way you can stand out from the crowd." That Big Catcli His labors for "M Squad," have brought him a half million dollars, that gave him the independence to wait for that big catch. Lee was 40 before it arrived, but the wait was worth it. Producers are already looking at him through different eyes. Columbia has signed him to four pictures in five years at more than double his previous salary. Other companies are sending him scripts — to star in. Marvin, 41, and no longer angry, figures he'll continue his fishing strategy. "1 might just get lost and come back in October and see if it's all true," he said. "If they're still as eager then as they are now, then I just might be able to stretch my luck for a few years." Actor Finney Forms Production Company LONDON — UP) — Stage- screen star Albert Finney has set up an independent production company for films, plays and television called Memorial Enterprises Ltd. As a first project, the company has rights to a new script by Shelagh Delaney, in which Finney will appear and also direct. Russ Movie 'Hamlet' Wins Prize in Italy BOLOGNA, Italy — (3>) — Soviet director Kozintev's movie version of "Hamlet" has been selected by Bologna for its annual award as the year's best intellectual film. The award was given for the Red "Hamlet's" high technical value and modem treatment. Sign Poitier to Star in Movie in Britain LONDON — (JP) — American actor Sidney Poitier has been signed for the Columbia movie "To Sir, with Love," about the experiences of a Negro teacher in a London East End school. Production is expected to start in Britain about August. Seeks Actor to Play Mandrake in Movie ROME — i/P) — Director Duccio Tessari is going to England soon to try to find an actor to cast as Mandrake in his movie based on the adventures of the comic strip magician. Tessari wrote the script himself. scene — leaves me too tired to dash out and stare at cathedrals. "There's no time after the picture is over, either. I come right home to take care of business matters, or 1 head for another picture." Among h i s recent films: "633 Squadron" (England), "Love Has Many Faces" (Mexico), "Masquerade" (Europe), "Up From the Beach" (Europe). Will Go to Moscow He'll be traveling through next January, too. He leaves soon for the Moscow Film Festival, then does "After the Fox" in Rome, followed by The Sand Pebbles" in Formosa and Hong Kong. "See my suitcase," he said, pointing to the bag lying on the dining room floor. "I just throw it there when I come home; I don't have time to put it away." Why does Robertson do all this travel? His reply was frank: "I'm not one of the golden six." He referred to the half-dozen or more top stars who can pick off the plum roles in American-made movies. "Good Old Cliff" "I take what's left over, and that's usually a picture abroad". Cliff remarked. They all know me as the great utility player. 'Good old Cliff,' they say, 'he can do anything.' "Well, I'm tired of pinch- hitting in the ninth inning. I'd like to be in there as a starting pitcher one of these days." There is a good reason for Robertson to keep working: he has an expensive hobby. He became enamored of vintage airplanes and now owns four: two English Tiger Moths, a Mes.sorschmidt and a Spitfire. He flies them whenever he gets a chance. "I also fly in a balloon sometimes," he added. He got dunked once in an oceanic balloon race, but that failed to dim his enthusiasm." Nearly Gave Up, Rodgers Recalls NEW YORK —(/P)— Celebrating the 40lh anniversary of his first successful Broadway show, Richard Rodgers recalls how he almost quit composing. Me and Larry Hart had been trying unsuccessfully for seven years to make a name for themselves when luck turned in 1925. Rodgers' father urged him to seek a more stable livelihood than the theater, and the young songwriter went out and.goti a job with a children's clO%-C ing firm, at $50 a week. The day before he was to start, the Theater Guild invited the Rodgers-Hart team to write music for an intimate, revue, to be called "The Garrick Gaieties." After that hit premiere, Rodgers sent his resignation to the textile' company.
