MADRID (AP) — \She's a'great actress and a great comedienne,\ boasts her director. It's like a dream come true, playing in a film with her. I love her; I've always loved her. I scrimped my money to see her perform in Los Angeles,\ sighs her young co-star. \She has a thin face, but it has elegance, with some distinction,\ verbalizes the professional photographer. \You can put Maggie in a sack and she'll still look good. It's the way she moves,\ says her designer. Object of all this affectionate attention is a skinny, frecklefaced redhead, Maggie Smith, who, at 36, is one of Britain's leading stage actresses and an international motion picture \star\—in the professional, not the Hollywood, sense of the word. She is making her first movie since \The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie,\ which earned her the best actress Oscar for . 1969. The new film is \The Widower,\ a story of an unusual romance between an older woman and a young man, played by 20-yearold Timothy Bottoms. It is filmed against the backdrop of Spain—Segovia, La Mancha land, El Escorial, Manzanares, the old-fashioned, the storybook country. \The film is a difficult attempt at synthesis,\ says the director, Alan J. Pakula. \It comically deals with passion,\ he added in his Madrid hotel suite, fighting off advised rest and quiet to kill a sore throat. \The comedy comes out of the characters of the two people. They are both totally withdrawn. Both are protecting their dignity, like two turtles. But they risk it. \The young man is a bit of a n ass. She is the original lady who slips on a banana peel. You're not afraid to laugh at her as well as be moved by her—a curious mixture of passionate romance and Buster Keaton comedy. She is totally absurd and incredibly romantic; she has great vulnerability and great strength. \That combination of facets, that Maggie has. \Why Maggie? She's a great actress and a great comedienne. That's why Maggie.\ Pakula, a - bearded 40-yearold, paused and recalled when Maggie had to cry through three-quarters of a scene— \really sob hysterically.. It's a funny scene, but it depends on real tears. \We started at 9:30 and went through to 6 o'clock. She cried all afternoon- even when she was off camera while we were shooting closeups of Tim. \She cares about the work; she worries a great deal. She's not a casual worker.\ A knock on the door interrupted. Maggie Smith entered like a red roan colt, somewhat spindly-legged in slacks and sweater. . • - \Reserved\ fits her well; some .say aloof. She is reluctant to give interviews, preferring her privacy and the weight of her work, but she agreed on this oc- casion. As she spoke, with that nasal quality and British accent, a vision of Maggie Smith floated from the room, out of Spain, onto the screen. There was Maggie Smith, the Scottish schoolteacher standing in front of her classroom, Miss Jean Brodie in her prime; there she was on the London stage, aristocratic elegance and comic carriage in \Beaux Stratagem;\ there she was in Los Angeles in \Design for Living,\ the show for which Tim Bot- toms saved his money to attend and adore. As she talked, she became the fic- tional paradox of which Pakula spoke: vulnerable and strong, romantic and comic. She spoke about her work and her Jove, acting. \The Widower,\ set for Columbia Pictures release next spring, is the first film she has made since \The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie\ three years ago. The reasons are practical—contract with the National Repertory Theatre, birth of her second child, a dearth of good material—but perhaps also emotional: she doesn't seem to really enjoy making movies. \1 look on the camera as the enemy face on,\ she says only partly in jest. \We had three weeks of rehearsal which I thoroughly enjoyed. Then Alan said we were ready to start' shooting. I knew there was a catch to it!\ She finds film a director's medium; the stage is hers. \The director has an illusion about what he wants that I don't understand. I can create an illusion on stage. I know what I'm doing there, the technicalities of it all. \We shot a crying scene. I continued to cry off camera. I felt rotten about the scene. I don't know ... You know, you possess a third eye,\ she says to Pakula. \I possess a third ear. \On screen, if I feel it was wrong ...\ her voice trails off and her long, thin fingers waft the air in search of a solution. \On stage, I can walk off and say to myself, 'Oh, you idiot. Next time, you'll do it right.' \The theater is 'easier' for me, ob- viously, though it is not easy. I worked in it more. It is totally different. I mean it really is. The theater keeps oii -going. There is joy in repertory; it is great living. \It is difficult in film. You have to hold on to what you do from nine in the morning until you finish at night. It sounds bizarre ... If you leave the set, you think it will vanish. In theater, there's always .some sort of contact; here, you just don't know what's going on.\ But, apparently, a role such as Lila in \The Widower\ was lure enough. SUPPORTS HUNTING WASHINGTON (AP) — Concerned over increasing antihunting sentiment, The Wildlife Society has gone on record in support of hunting in the United States. \Sport hunting is regulated to maintain healthy balances in wildlife populations,\ says executive director Fred G. Evenden. \In the wild, death rates must match birth rates because no population can expand indefinitely. If animals are over- protected, overpopulation results and starvation is the inevitable result.\ Mr. and Mrs. Lome McAdoo en- tertained at family dinner on Oct. 31.

Papp Public Theater Thinks National NEW YORK (AP) — Just because he's now the busiest showman in- New York doesn't make Joseph Papp feel ful- filled. An arch' apostle of drama for everybody, the small, often flappable but rarely beatable Papp is waiting, willing.and wanting next to service \the whole United States of America.\ Papp savors ripe, round phrases. If that aim sounds like arrant overreach, a certain credibility is detectable in the record of past ac- complishments. On the way to getting where he is today, Papp has bewildered, stunned and overcome dragons of op- position with incredible efficiency. The National Endowment for the Arts recently awarded the Shakespeare Festival-Public Theater complex, which the extelevision technician heads, $125,000—the largest grant it ever has given a drama group. The New York State Council on the Arts contributed $200,000 to the operation, again the largest allocation. As a third benefice, once bureaucratic reitape is unsnarled, the city of New ' y* rk pays $2.6 million to Papp for his year-round premises, and then rents it back to him for $1 annually. Such fiscal coups simply attest to what one eminent target of his appeals sue- cinctly terms \an awfully persuasive ability to keep you from saying no.\ In another significant move, the Papp forces invade big time commercial Broadway- which has been a frequent Chase Manhattan Plans To Build Syracuse Bank SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Chase Manhattan Bank, second largest in the nation, announced plans Wednesday to form a new bank in Syracuse. For Chase, it would be their first bank outside the New York City area. Chase has assets of $26.3 biUion and deposits of $22.5 billion. Only the Bank of America is larger. James H. 1 Harris, Chase senior vice president for planning and expansion, revealed the plans at a city hall news conference with Mayor Lee Alexander. Harris said his firm's plans depend on approval from state and federal banking authorities. Harris would be board chairman of the new bank—Chase Manhattan Bank of Central New York. The new bank would have capital funds of $2 million and would operate from the yet-to-be-completed Carrier Tower office building, he said. Harris said- Chase expects to expand throughout central New York. He said Syracuse was selected at the starting point because of its size and central lo- cation. Three straight starvation winters in New York State hunting areas have reduced the deer herd to its smallest size of this century. target of his criticism—with the Bee. 1 premiere of a whippedup \Two Gen-' tlemen of Verona.\ The show, which was part of the outdoor Shakespeare Festival in Central Park last summer, has a score by Gait McDermot of \Hair\ fame, and an adapted text by John Guare^ who won the 1971 Drama Critics Circle prize for \The House of Blue Leaves.\ \Hair\ also began at the Public, but went on to global glory under other auspices. \We'll go anywhere,\ Papp asserts. \You can't say you're opposed to commercial theater, just bad theater. The justification for us with this move is that we own the production 100 per cent, and every penny of profit will go for promotion of this kind of work we feel is important.\ Although some critics regard Papp as primarily a smart fund-raiser with a flair for the sensational, others admire him as a catalyst of youthful, un- hackneyed creativity. The opening agenda in the sprawling center of Lafayette Street currently attests to his assertion, \There's no shortage of the things I want to do.\ Six plays, ranging from Brecht's \Jungle of Cities\ to a musical diver- sion, \Don't Fail Your Lovin' Daddy, Lily Plum,\ and a piece of stark militancy, \The Black Terror,\ are on or in rehearsal. Papp also is starting a Sunday series to \tap a constant turnover of black talent\ of music, poetry and dance. Proliferation expands further with four visits by Pierre Boulez and members of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra who want to reach an audience different from Lincoln Center's mink-and- champagne set. Although the assortment of stage exhibits ranges from agitprop abrasion to an occasional excursion into such period blandness as Pinero's \Trelaw- ney of the 'Well',\ Papp asserts \There is just one thrust to this theater. I know where the nose is.... \I look for the plays that are very deeply human to begin with, that are essentially related to major crises and that have the capability of appealing to a large, large audience.\ If that ambition of developing into a national theater is realized, \it will be nothing like England's National which primarily deals with old plays.\ Asked if he ever envisioned such growth when he initiated-that workshop in 1953, Papp replies: \Well the whole thing is no larger really now than it was then. Just because we're doing more things doesn't make it any larger. The important thing is that I'm still able to relate myself to every important thing at every moment.\ Papp brings the conversation around to that pending major interest of developing a national theater s \so that I can begin to deal with the problem, of providing proper opportunity to the serious playwright; playwrights who have something to say about the world. \Listen I don't want to sound presumptuous or pompous but it's a fact RESIDENTIAL TELEVISION SERVICE GENERAL ELECTRIC Monochrome and Color Televisions and Stereos General Electric Service Dealer We sell We service 1900 FORD STREET OGDENSBURG, N.Y. 393-5511 McFadden Memorials MONUMENTS MARKERS STATUARY COME IN SNO SEE US FOR HIGHEST QUALITY AT LOWEST PRICES Ph. 393-5720 WeDon't Employ SaIesmen-800 State St-Ogdensburg- we are the only organization that is ready to do something like this in the country. \There are a lot of capable groups, capable people doing very interesting things.
