Auditions tough ior Glen Campbell chorus line M~_ 4*JA«* •« A «4<M .« «... . _ _ .. 1 ;-J i *' Barbra's new musical movie Barbra Streisand falls into deep trance before psychiatrist Yves Montand in "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever," the Howard Koch-Jay Lerner musical comedy film opening Wednesday at Camelback Mall. By DON PAGE Los Afigetea Times Service LOS ANGELES -Itlooked like an Army recruit company in leotards. The shapely recruits were lined up in Studio B at Columbia Broadcasting System's Television City here, hoping to be inducted into the permanent chorus platoon for the Glen Campbell TV show. Who knows, maybe there's a Cyd Charisse in the crowd? "How about a Sid Caesar?" someone said, as a tubby little blonde limbered up. THE CAMPBELL producers ran a few inconspicuous ads in the entertainment industry trade papers and more than 200 girls responded. Choreographer Ron Poindexter assembled the ladies en masse and demonstrated the step they would perform for the audition. As the afternoon progressed, the selection narrowed. A number of perspiring, aspiring dancers failed their physicals. Now they would be called out of the crowd, six at a time, alphabetically. From the bulging group, a dozen girls would be chosen to participate in the final audition the next day. From that, only three would make the Glen Campbell Show — along with three male dancers from an- other audition in another hall (where there were decidedly fewer spectators). Puffing on a pipe, producer Jack Shea said, "You see the same dolls at every audition. They make a career out of it." THE LADIES were till, short stocky, sHm, curvy, clumsy, clever, hammy, graceful, swift and lovely in their movements. They could fill anything from the Campbell hour to the amateur hour. "First, they've got to dance well," Shea said. "Second, they've got to look well. Youthful." He puffed on his pipe. "Some of these girls I see are from five years ago. They're a little over the hill." Over-the-hills, though they danced well, were excused with a large number of under-the-hills and some, who never nude the grade at all. Poindexter, weary, asked the combo to change the tune once in a while. They did but the beat never changed. Nei- Movies in Valley Pllm* released after Nov. ' "icfura Association of 9 Am«rlc*.
