Raquel Welch enjoys 'the fruits of my labors' in the rollicking Four Musketeers ‘“What could be better than The Three Musketeers’ the ads ask, and go on to answer, ‘The Four Musketeers.’ I agree,” wrote Vincent Canby of The New York Times about this month’s rollicking HBO comedy premiere. Among the gang of swashbuckling stars in this light-headed farce—which includes Charlton Heston and Faye Dunaway—is Raquel Welch, who confessed shortly after the premiere of the film: “I used to feel embarrassed around recognized performers.” Although renowned as a sex symbol, Welch, a veteran of 25 films, had found she “didn’t know how to live up to my image” and saw herself faced with a future as either “a superwoman or the mayonnaise spread between two guys in an adventure film.” Her break came when Richard Lester offered her the pivotal role of Constance, the queen’s dressmaker, in his ribald remake of the Dumas’ classic. Welch jumped at the chance to play the clumsy klutz, a role that tastefully blends sex appeal and humor. Welch’s first day on the set nearly proved her last, however. A minor plot disagreement set her packing to Madrid and Lester needed all the psychology he had learned as a student at the University of Pennsylvania to convince her to return. Besides garnering critical approval, Welch earned her first legitimate acting award—a 1975 Golden Globe. “I’ve survived all the smirks and sneers and barbs of the people who thought I was an expendable sexpot, and now I’m enjoying the fruits of my labors,” she said.

Sports Dr. J takes on the NBA Julius Erving of the New York Nets does not fill his sneakers with helium. Nor can he take a flying leap from midcourt, change a lightbulb in the ceiling and then, on his way down at last, dunk a basketball with only one finger. It just seems that way. Now that the ABA has merged with the NBA, Erving will finally get a chance to win over those few remaining doubters who argue that he has excelled as a pro because he has not competed against the finest pro players. After he had led the Nets to their second ABA championship earlier this year, Erving was asked if he felt he could be as spectacular if he was in the NBA. His answer of “Yup” was as | brief as could be. Dr. J is not monosyllabic. It’s just that he knows that the best thing for him is to let his passing, rebounding, dunks, reverse layups, double pumps, and his behind-the-back and through-the-hoop shots do the talking. This month HBO subscribers will be able to see Dr. J and Nets take on the N.Y. Knicks on the 7th and the Seattle SuperSon-ics on the 24th as HBO 'brings you another exciting professional basketball season. Herman Weiskopf 7,24 DAN BALIOTTI October explodes with sports events on HBO HBO’s sports schedule is packed with exciting events this month, ranging from the explosive action of NHL hockey and NBA basketball to special, exclusive looks at some of the newest sports competitions. What’s new? Well, one of the newest and most innovative events is called sports acrobatics, an intriguing spinoff from gymnastics. For a special look at this new sport HBO will bring you the second world championships in sports acrobatics on Oct. 11 from West Germany. Having glimpsed Olga Korbut, Nadia Comaneci and other topflight international gymnasts, you might just feel that you have seen it all. A few minutes of watching sports acrobatics, however, should convince you this is something totally different. Some of the most creative athletes in the world—both male and female—will take part in these championships. The athletes will compete in individual events and in pairs, trios and foursomes, combining their strength and grace with skills in balancing and tumbling in a refreshing variation of gymnastics. The Soviets are the early leaders in developing this exciting new sport. But American athletes have recently plunged into the fray and you will be seeing them as well. HBO viewers will have a unique chance on Oct. 18 to see the national roller skating championships from Fort Worth, Texas. These skaters perform the same graceful routines as their compatriots on ice—but in this case no frozen finish is needed to polish their performances. The always-colorful International Horse Show from the L.A. Forum will be on HBO Oct. 5 and 9. And on Oct. 23 we’ll bring you another Canadian Football League clash, this time between the Edmonton Eskimos and the Montreal Alouettes, the teams that met in last year’s title match. All this, plus great basketball and hockey from arenas around the country, means it will be an October to remember for HBO sports fans. Detroit takes on Los Angeles on Oct. 26. * S*. •'

His dialect impres- sions are unchanged since he won America’s heart on the Ed Sullivan show in the late fifties. Cohen stepped into the spotlight in such glamorous New York night spots as the Copaca-bana and the Latin Quarter. “I never had to suffer like a lot of the boys in show biz,’ he admits. A garment salesman until he was 42, he first climbed on stage when a friend facetiously introduced him as a professor of languages. Before his stage career, he was the joke-ster at his cronies’ stag parties. But for public ears he cleaned up his act. “I’m not a prude, but there is a time and a place for everything,” he told On Air. His secret of success is “nev- 1 er underestimate an audience. The 74-year-old Cohen sheds his gray salesman’s suit when he comes offstage. Spurred on by a pacemaker, his eyes twinkle and he is again the kindly Jewish uncle while he tells a tale.

Deneuve and Crenna star in Dirty Money Catherine Deneuve, acclaimed as the most successful French actress of her generation and as one of the most beautiful women in the world, turns up as a French crook’s moll in Dirty Money, which premieres this Catherine Deneuve in Dirty Money month on FIBO. Workhorse actor Richard Crenna, who has made dozens of TV and screen appearances —he is probably best remembered for his part in The Real McCoys—is a crooked Paris nightclub owner in this action-packed cops and robbers tale with a French accent. Filled with double-crosses and romantic tangles, Dirty Money also boasts a spectacular drug heist scene in which the stuntman who fills in for Crenna jumps from a helicopter onto a moving train. Famed French actor Alain Delon is a tough cop who is out to get Crenna but finds himself falling for Deneuve in this quick-moving story of robbery and romance. October 15,18,21,26 10 Pam Grier in The Arena The stunning Pam Grier, the hottest black female star in Flollywood, is the star gladiator of The Arena, the action-packed female version of the Spartacus rebellion story that premieres this month on FIBO. But just a while ago Grier was a switchboard operator at American International Pictures. One day a passing producer noticed her striking features, popped filmdom’s favorite fairy tale line—“you ought to be in pictures” —and offered her an audition. After a few bit parts, she struck gold as the female avenger in Coffy and has stayed on top since. October 22,28 Pam Grier is the star of The Arena Premieres Elliott Gould makes a comeback in the offbeat cold war thriller Who Overnight stardom and next morning “has been” are common conditions in Flollywood, and nobody knows that better than Elliott Gould, star of Who?, the bionic thriller that premieres on FIBO this month. Gould is an FBI agent based in Berlin who must determine if a top American scientist is who he claims to be or if he is actually a spy. Trevor Howard, head of the East German secret service, is Gould’s nemesis on the other side of The Wall. In 1969, however, the big question was “Who is Elliott Gould?” After starring in six major pictures in less than 15 months, Gould, his marriage to Barbra Streisand and his love affairs were gone over with a fine tooth comb on TV talk shows and in magazines across the country. But then things suddenly fell apart. His personal life collapsed, his career came to a standstill and there were rumors of drug use and mental breakdowns. But recently his career has started coming f together again for the rumpled, 38- : year-old actor. With his successes in Robert Altman’s The Long Goodbye I and California Split, and the recent Harry and Walter Go to New York Elliott Gould is once again heading for the top. 8,12,14,1

Two superstars of cinema—Marlon Brando and Jack Nicholson—are teamed together for the first time this month, as HBO brings you the drama of The Missouri Breaks. Described by Time as “Brando’s likely successor as the best and most powerful actor in films,” Nicholson won a long overdue Oscar this year for his work in One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest. During the shooting of The Missouri Breaks he and co-star Brando brought their own unique form to that tale of Wild West vigilante law, overpowering the plans of director Arthur Penn (Bonnie and Clyde). The superstars’ coup d’etat began when Brando arrived at the Billings, Montana set a few weeks into the filming. Although he was earning a whopping $1.25 million for his five weeks work, Brando declared he was bored with his part as written. He persuaded Penn to let him “have some fun” with his character—a vigilante for hire—and soon he was sporting an Irish accent and wearing bizzare attire. Brando followed with further liberties until it was not uncommon for work on the eight million dollar production to stop at his every whim. Brando’s unique view of his role brought him critical acclaim. Wrote Richard Schickel, the film critic of Time: “The picture belongs to Brando. The crazy daring, the reckless bravado of his work simply overpowers everything else on the screen. You groan, you shake your head, you laugh wildly at each new lunacy, but you cannot help being fascinated by the man. Nicholson—who plays the head of a gang of horse thieves Brando has been hired to eliminate—watched with interest the antics of the master enfant terrible. Once after Brando had argued away an entire day of shooting, Nicholson shrugged, smiled, and softly said, “Another day, another 20 grand. 17,21,25,30 Superstars Brando and Nicholson in Missouri Breaks Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Lloyd in The Missouri Breaks

HBO goes to Nashville Premieres Nashville, the acclaimed story of politics and country music which premieres on HBO this month, boasts two dozen stars in its cast. But there are actually 25 stars. The unheralded man is Richard Baskin, who wrote the music for almost half of the film’s 27 tunes; arranged and conducted the entire score; and coached stars Lily Tomlin, Henry Gibson, Karen Black, Barbara Harris and others. The 25-year-old music prodigy literally stumbled into his debut position as Nashville’s music director. Gwen Welles, who plays the no-talent singing waitress, approached Baskin to write her songs after learning director Robert Alt man required the 24 principals to find their own material. De termined to record each song live on the film’s set, instead of taping later in a studio, Baskin developed a way to capture each singer before a live audience, thus achieving a rare sense of authenticity. Vincent Canby of The New York Times joined many other critics in giving Baskin “ma- redit for the Vs success. 10,14,18, 23 Mandingo: The searing scandal of the South This month the man who took on Muhammad AN takes on the South, as Mandingo explodes on HBO. Heavyweight boxer Ken Norton stars in a no-holds-barred look at the brutal degradation of life on a Louisiana slave-breeding plantation. When it was published in 1958 as the first of a five-part saga, Kyle Onstatt’s torrid and explicit Mandingo was an instant hit and it has since attracted more than ten million readers. Like the book, this box office blockbuster rips away the Spanish moss covering pre-Civil War decadence. After movie mogul Dino De Lau- Heavyweight boxer Ken Norton stars in Mandingo. rentiis secured the film rights in 1970, he packaged a production that hinged on hiring World Heavyweight Champion Muhammad AM as the battling Mandingo. Ali was considered essential to the film and when he withdrew for religious reasons the proposed production collapsed. Producer De Laurentiis chalked that up as only a minor setback, however. Since he couldn’t get Ali, he signed the boxer who had beaten him—top ranked contender Ken Norton. De Laurentiis then cast James Mason as the vicious master of Falcon-hurst. Perry King stars as Mason’s crippled son, Susan George plays King’s lustful wife and Brenda Sykes is featured as King’s slave lover in this blazing melodrama that premieres exclusively this month on Home Box Office. 31
