Premier Week Orgy Continues Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Thurs., Sept. 12, 1974 ft FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS 'Harry 0' Said Best Of New Shows Tonight NEW YORK (AP) - The prbmicrc week orgy of new ncl- ,work TV Aeries resumes tonight, with ABC and NBC each selling loose Iwo new ones. I'd have lo say ABC's "Harry 0" with David Jaiissen is the best of the lot. Then comes ABC's "Paper M o o n 1 ' a n d then NBC's "Sierra" and thai one Just because of the scenery. Judgment is temporarily NBC's "Movin' withheld on On" because advance peeks weren't possible before deadline time. "Harry 0," about a former cop retired on disability pfly because of a bullcl in his bac'k, is in Hie genre -- Krench- for lliird-gcncnition imitations -- of Ihose fine old detective movies of the 1940s. Yon know Ihe kind -- Ibe private eye wa'klng down the misty street, hard-eyed, p u f f i n g on a cigarette, his off-screen voice saying, "No mailer how hard I tried, I couldn't get Ihe Strom- boli affair out of my mind." Same deal Janssen's new series, in which he plavs a somewhat seedy private detective in San Diego who usually takes buses -- a TV first, a blow for ecology -- en route lo solving various crimes, Tonighl's salvo has Harry at ENJOY OUR DELICIOUS BUFFET Both Noon and Evening Bring the family!

Probably a client. Harry sighs. His off-screen voice says, "Where I wanted lo be was Idaho Falls, Idaho, because that was where Ihe circus was playing that duv." WHIMSICAL UAMIiLE I gave the show a Grade-B at that point. It could do no wrong from then on. And it didn't, as it whimsically rambled through a yarn about a daft maiden -nicely played by Julie Sommers -- and her search · for her AWOL Navy brother, he accidentally involved in a jewel smuggling _caper. "Harry mightiest may not be the show on eaiih, but HIGHWAY 71 NORTH KEG. U.S. I'M". Off. Call AMIE STONE For Reservations 443-432I : ' 4434323 WOW! LOOK AT ABC NOW!

Christopher Connelly and Jodie Foster slar. ®7:3O it's a pleasant way to blow an hour and I'm sure that's all decent person would ask of it. "Paper Moon." based on the movie of the same name, has Christopher Connelly and Jodie Foster at large as a charminj con man and his 11-ycar-ok p a r t n e r i n rube-swindling, 1930s-style. . Tonight's episode is flim-flam flimsy, and concerns how she cons him into buying a house -- Coors Beer Application Is Rejected LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- An application for a permit to sell ^oors beer wholesale in Pulaski and Sebastian counties was rejected Wednesday by the stale Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. The Adolph Cpors Co. of Golden, Colo., which brews the beer; opposed the application in correspondence ABC Administrator II. E. Brians. Coors previously has refused to expand its market to Arkansas, saying it was selling all the beer it could produce in its existing inarkel area. Samuel H. Perrin o[ Fort Smith applied for Ihe permit. Brians said Perrin had planned to buy Ihe beer at retail in Oklahoma, pay the Arkansas tax when the beer was brought into the state and then sell the beer at "wholesale." Brians said Perrin would have paid about beer. His $8 a case (or the "wholesale" price . _ ______ ____ and how he Dwindles the^ cash j would have been higher, of course, and the retail price in \rltansas would have been slill ligher. Brians said Coors contended t lacked facilities to provide he Arkansas market adequate- y and also cited problems ot -- and settling down. It all comes to naught and justice is served, but the funny lines are few. It's a fair opening try, but far more script work is needed. NBC's "Sierra" comes from the Jack Webb works, is filmed in the Sierra Nevadas and has the usual Jack Webb cast of young, competent, but undistinguished actors, this time playing dedicates forest rangers. The scenery is breathtaking, but the generally laggard script may cause you to exhale and change channels before the rescue commences. The show could be a passable 30 minutes, but it seems too long at an hour. It doesn't make the Dog-Alert advance warning list of bad shows only because I can't knock the Sierra Nevadas. Tonight on KODE-TV Channel 12 Script Prepared Without Archie LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Can it be the same without Archip Bunker in "All in the Family"? Norman Lear, executive pro ducer, said Wednesday that i! Carroll O'Connor does not re (port for work on Thursday he will be written out of the popu lar CBS comedy series. O'Connor refuses lo cross a picket line of striking elec Iricians at CBS. Taping of the show has been suspended since Aug. 21. ; Lear said an alternate script! without Archie is in rehearsal' and will be taped Friday night if O'Connor does not appear. O'Connor's current absence is unrelated to an earlier walkout over a contract dispute. During that time O'Connor missed two shows and returned July 30 ,in trme to deliver one line at the quality control. Coors is brewed with fresh spring water rather tha.n dis- illed water.
