So Hal Holbrook studied at becoming Lincoln in mood and thought, just as be had studied at being Mark Twain for the Broadway stage. The role captivates and costs just as it once cost Raymond Masscy who played Lincoln in "Abe Lincoln in Illinois." They used to say Masscy was so much a prisoner ot the part he wanted to be assassinated. Now Holbrook is Lincoln, the nation's IGth President, in a scries of one-hour specials for NBC.

For Holbrook, the 12 weeks of f i l m i n g was a contest of identities. He became sad and lonely and depressed, isolated from bis family in New York, kept from his friends here, literally imprisoned from early morning to night in the Lincoln mask. "iven his weekends, sailing lone to Calalina Island, be iroocied and studied his lines ·xnd played them back on a ape recorder. Still he was aware of the illu ion. "Television moves too fast," ie says now. "There was never 'ully time to live out the life of i character, as in a play. Scenes come and go loo quickly ind moods and attitudes must :e changed. One show was literally nothing but Lincoln tell- 'ng stories and jokes." Worse, he worked at the jiarl against the backdrop of Water- ate and the ordeal of another president, Richard Nixon, who compared himself to Lincoln An independent who leans to- SOL11) TKUST "Mr. Lincoln liad a dcep and solid trust in the people.

Holbrook's intense mastery Twain, wliich won him Bi-oad- Tony award, almost scuttled his career. For six years afterward lie was offered few roles under 70 years or age. The turning point was his starring role in "The Senator TV Fie is established now ami holds no fears about his role as Lincoln. To become Lincoln visually, Holbrook, 49, lean with a crag gy jaw and wavy gray hair, uiv dcrwcnl a three-hour transfor nialion every day.

Then he hat to endure agonizing itching during (he long, hot hours of film ing. "Once you gel that inakeuj on and you look like a face of a $5-bill, you say, 'Holy God I've gone 'and clone it.' Ever; time you open your raout! you've got lo pull it oft. Yoi can't be self-conscious. Yon ca be historical. You can't souni like a man giving speeches." Holbroolc wanted to humanize ·mcoln and not play him as a aint. He began by looking for the igbt dialect and went to Gen- ryvllle, Ind., not tar from where Lincoln spent his adolescent years. "After I got the voice, I saw him as a big farmer," he said. "You could almost smell the sweat and manure. He was un- gainly, he had big knuckles, his movements were unrefined. "There is a great humanizing clement in awkwardness. He was a giant. He became vulnerable." British Symphony Seeking Sponsorship LONDON (AP) - A leading iritish symphony orchestra, eeling the chill wind of in- lation, is asking commercial irms to sponsor its concerts. It could lead to a new era of music in Britain, where commercial sponsorship is at jresent confined almost entirely to sport. · The Royal Philharmonic, in an appeal aimed at all British pusiness firm, says it cannot fufill all its artistic plans and remain solvent. London has five full-lime orchestras -- more than any oilier city in the word. Only one of these, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Symphony, is supported entirely by the state. The other four -- the Royal Philharmonic, London Symphony, London Philharmonic and New Philharmonic, each receive a subsidy of more than 100,000 pounds or $240,000 a year from the government backed Arts Council. But the Royal Philharmonic is still no paying its way. A spokesman said it needs another 195,000 pounds or 5468,00 a year to avoid bankruptcy vithout cutting its programs. The orchestra, founded in .946 by the late Sir Thomas Beecham, plays regularly at he Royal Festival Hall beside .he River Thames, gives concerts in provincial towns, makes at least one overseas .our a year and gives special concerts for children and indus- ,rial workers. Rudolf Kempe is ts principal conductor, dividing lis time between Ihis orchestra and the Munich Philharmonic in Germany. ORCHESTRA APPEALS The orchestra is.appealing tc businessmen's h e a r t s anc heads. In a specially prepared booklet it asked firms to sup port its concerts "for reasons of social responsibility," bu also tried to sell the idea as an advertising proposition. A spokesman admitted tha 1 this is not easy. "If a commercial company sponsors a sports 'event, it can rape advertisements around he arena and get a lot of valu- ble publicity on television,' he spokesman said. "You can't ery well put advertisements .round a concert platform, and symphony concerts are not television material anyway. "But we still think, quite geti uinely, that a firm that gets its lame on our concert programs would derive a lot of usefu publicity. We received somi 3rompt inquiries when \v launched the appeal,. which i: promising." The Royal Philharmonic say: it needs 25,000 pounds or $00,001 a year for recording projects 4,000 pounds or $9,600 to com mission new work and 11.00 pounds or $24,600 for what i calls "rare and comple works." Its programs for the Roya Festival Hall for this winter ii elude new, specially commis sioned works by British con posers David Bedford, Justi Connolly and Gordon Crossc. The first show in the series, Mrs. Lincoln's Husband, okcd at Lincoln the family lan in the White House. Sub- equent shows will examine incoln as a prairie lawyer, a igncious analyzer of people, a irewd politician, commandcr- ri-chief during the Civil Wur ml as a post-war president limning for reconstruction in ic days before his assassina- :on. The series focuses on Lin- oln the man. avoids the momentous events of the Douglas ebates, the Gettysburg Ad- Iress, the assassination. "I had a gieat desire to widen Ihe image of myself beyond Mark Twain," Holbrook said. 'II was a groat stumbling block. I had to become known or something else. I'm not putting down Mark Twain. I still do it and love it, and it's an awful feeling if people think that's all you can do." His nortray'al of Twain was something of an accident. He :iad been traveling around the Midwest doing two-men shows. When his first wife became pregnant, he returned to New York. "I didn't want to sell hats to make a living," he said, "so I began to develop Twain which we had done as a sketch. It was just something to do to make a living . . ." When he's not Mark Twain,not Abraham Lincoln, he is simply. Hal Holbrook, a father at home and a .sailor on Long Island Sound. SEPT. 15 -I ADMISSION $1.00 CHILDREN under 12 FREE i FREE! . . . .
