While he waited for times to change he won an Emmy—at the age of 20—for the punch lines he wrote for the Smothers Brothers TV show. He also wrote jokes for Sonny and Cher and he learned magic tricks that didn’t work (but broke up his audiences anyhow). In the meantime America’s appetite for humor resurged. Martin’s name is not yet a household word in comedy, but that condition is bound to be shortlived. Last month he hosted NBC’s Saturday Night. His zany On Location routines are in demand on college campuses. He has even left his Los Angeles homeland and moved to Colorado’s Rockies where he is regenerating his sense of humor and is writing a movie for Paramount. Home Box Office viewers will be able to see how all of that bizarre goofiness paid off when Martin appears On Location this month from Los Angeles. Presto—a new star. 19,22,25,27,30

A mixture of fact and fiction about the last church-sanctioned exorcism in America, The Exorcist may offend you. Packed with explicit special effects, this film is certainly not recommended for children. Rated “R”, which means those under 17 should not see it unless an adult is present, it will be shown on HBO only at night. However, The Exorcist, based on the best-seller by William Peter Blatty, is an exciting thriller which explores a little-known area of the occult. Controversial and acclaimed, The Exorcist has a unique place in cinema history. 3

Premieres f B Must Die Darren McGavin is one of the few actors who ever interrupted a successful acting career to go to acting school in order to learn to be a successful actor. Appearing as a would-be assassin in a revolution-torn banana republic this month on HBO in B Must Die, McGavin came to acting after a stint as a scenic designer at Columbia Pictures proved unrewarding. A bit part in A Song to Remember led to his first acting career, which McGavin stopped—to his agent’s chagrin—when he concluded he wasn’t learning acting technique from his roles. After he graduated from Lee Strasberg’s Actors’ Studio, McGavin worked on Broadway and in live television. During two seasons on network TV McGavin managed to star in two prime time series (Riverboat * and Mike Hammer). McGavin recently starred as a down-and-out newspaper reporter in The Night Stalker, the most popular movie ever made for TV. November 26,29 Darren McGavin in B Must Die Joe Don Baker stars in Mitchell Joe Don Baker has made a career of his unique mental and physical attributes. Starring this month on HBO in Mitchell—the fast moving tale of a maverick cop on the prowl for a big city narcotics ring—the six-foot, 200-pound pugfaced Baker has repeatedly applied his coarse features and imposing size to his advantage. Armed with intelligence and acting talent far beyond the stereotype for such a figure, Baker has become one of the most sought after rugged heroes in Hollywood. Born in Groesbeck, Texas, Baker began his acting career while a senior in business administration at North Texas State. After landing a small part in a university production, Baker realized that acting provided him “a marvelous chance to escape from this world into another. Three years at Lee Strasberg’s Actors’ Studio prepared him for the film and TV roles he earned in Hollywood. Baker’s big break came when he was offered the role of Buford Pusser in Walking Tall. Adding an extra dimension to the character of the highly popular law-abiding sheriff beyond his physical appearance, Baker became recognized for the talent that he is. 28 IP
