give her a divorce, said one coun

The couple looked understandably
Tuesday's chapter was built
around a blind mfddte-aged wife
who wanted her husband to devote
more time to her. Her husband
protested he was working hard so
he could build a secure future. AH
three counselors bullied the wom
an a little and then called for a
compromise that didn't sound as
if it would work at all. The wom
an continued to look unhappy. So
did her husband.
Obviously, this sort of thing is
not only shoddy farce, it is also
dangerous. It presupposes that a
quick aerial view of any human
being's problems can result in
valid counsel. It pretends that life
can be beautiful if only you listen
to big daddy who knows all the

DRAMA UNFOLDS BEHIND
CAMERAS OF NEW MOVIE
By VERNON SCOTT
UPI Staff Writer
HOLLYWOOD (UPD More
drama unfolded behind the cam
eras of a new movie than regis
tered on film when a mother and
daughter were reunited after IB
years of bitter separation.
The daughter was Venetia bte-
venson. a sultry blonde newcom
er. The motner was Anna Lee
star 20 years ago. They were
playing mother and daughter in
I he picture.
'At first the tension and the
emotional strain was terrible,"
Venetia said. "I hadn't lived with
my mother since I was five years
"My , parents were divorced.
and I lived with my father. Moth
er and I corresponded a little bit,
but we were never friends. And
when we did see each other we
usually had an argument."

Venetia said the basis of her es
trangement from her mother was

close. And it was a shock play
ing her daughter on the screen,
because I've never felt like her
daughter in real life."
Venetia added she suggested
her mother for the role in "Big
Night" in which she co-stars with
"I left my father's home to live
by myself when 1 was 15,'' Vene
tia went on. "I missed having a
mother. Teenage girls have a spe
cial need for a mtlher's advice,
and dad wasn't able to fill the
"Mother and I always looked
more like sisters because she's
so youthful appearing. She acts
young, too. And I act old.
Mother Pictured Differently
"My own picture of a mother
has always been -a good-natured,
elderly woman with an apron and
a twinkle in her eye. It's pretty
different from having a glamor
ous actress for a mother."
During the filming of "Big
Night" Venetia and Anna talked
things over, and the coolness they
felt for one-another gradually
gave way to friendship.
" 'Friendship' is the word, tod,'1
the blue-eyed actress said.
"We just completed a second
picture together, 'Jet Over the At
lantic,' but this time we don't
play mother and daughter. Moth-,
er didn't try to help me with
scenes, and I didn't expect her
to. ' Nor is there any feeling of
competition between us.
"We will be seeing a lot more
of one another now, trying to
know ourselves better."
Her relationship with her moth
er has given Venetia doubts about
raising a family of her own.
She recently divorced actor
Russ Tamblyn. They had no chil
dren. "I really want to be married
again," Venetia concluded. "And
1 want to have children, too. But
the only thing that bothers me is
what kind of a mother I'd make."
