' 'Jazz Singer' Casting Jerry By FRED DANZIG UPI Slaff WriUr NEW YOHK iL'I'I'-An attempt to recreate the c-lasnc story, Tlie Jazz Sheer," on NBC-TV Tuesday niRht was so ohviously sirevre that it was a pity it was so cliclie-r'dde.i and oltei mis guided. The familiar utory by bamsoi aphaelson was adapted and modernized by Krnest tilucksmai a id Itjl'ih Nelson I producer and director, respectively, of Tuesday night's prese.itation. second in the new Star-Times series.! Jerry Lewis starred as Joey Itobips, Cantor liabinowitz's son, ho broke his father's heart by b eaking a family line of five gen erations of cantors to go into show business. Because there was only an hour tor the story, there was no time to explore the merits of the father-son conflict, or to present full portraits of each. Nor was there an attempt to resolve the ques tion, although the play did make the point that children cannot roam too far from their heritage. The conflict was set up in such lii:es as this, recited by the can tor, played by Eduard Franz: "If our young ones move away, who will be left to record the heart breaks?" Lewis said later on: "Without audience acceptance, I am nothing." The telescoping caused many of the serious scenes to take on burlesque-style dimensions, for every line had to cover too much ground. It had to try to present symbolic values as well as down- to earth ones, and when charac ters become open symbols, they make for troublesome dialogue. ' By burlesque-style scenes, I mean such things as: Joey's ar rival home during his father's birthday party, when his father slaps him for joking about ritual and says, "Better I should be Too Burlesque Lewis As Star deaq that my son should sing jazzed holy songs in my house. Get out of my house." Joqy gets. Later, when his father suffers a stroke before the start of Vom Kippur servicer. Joey tries to put off a bedside visit because he is about to make his TV debut. He tells his mother, backstage, that he can't because. . ."Just look all this." Someone shouts, "You're on, Joey." and he goes on to sing part of "Be A Clown," in clown makeup. It made me groan, it was so creaky. Lewis was convincing as an in secure, nervous, guilt-ridden com ic at the start of the how, but he pounded too hard on his big dramatic scenes. Molly Picon played his mother and gave it the old schmaltz, as did Kranz as the father. Ann Maria Albcrghetti was Joey's discoverer in the show and she had very little to do. A DRY BED FOREVER!

Emmy-Winning Writer Tosses In Sponge On Network War By VERNON SCOTT UPI Staff Writer HOLLYWOOD l'PH - Rod Serling, Emmy-winning TV scripl er, has thrown in the sponge in his lengthy war against networks and sponsors now that he's pro ducing his own TV series. "The sponsor is king in tele vision," Serling said grudgingly "And he always will be. It's a fact of life we must live with." This total surrender just about eliminates the rebellious young men who once fought tooth and nail for uncensored scripts. . Rod was one of the last of them. Trouble With Sponsors "I never got along with spon sors when I was a writer." he said. "That's why I'm producing my own show. There still are restrictions, but now I'm dealing directly with the sponsor and run ning into less trouble. "The situation finally reached the heights of stupidity when nor mal words couldn't be mentioned because they also were the names of competing products. I had to take a line out of a script that read," have you got a match?" The show was sponsored by a lighter company. "Nobody can be 'lucky' on a program that is sponsored by a cigaret firm, and criminals can't go to the gas chamber if the guys picking up the check manu facture gas stoves." Serling's new show. "The Twi light Zone," already has come a cropper with sponsors, but Rod doesn't fight them. "I'm too busy trying to prove 1 a pet theory of mine." he said. I Has Tremendous Scope j 'i believe we can tell a story I in the half-hour time restriction, and make it legitimate and in I teresting. This show is adult. meaningful. arresting drama which 1 hope will be both an artistic and commercial success." This log it mad up from information by Televition Stations and its accuracy cannot be guaranteed by the Ua Grand Observer. He described the program. based on science-fiction, fantasy and the occult, as being tilted off- center. Working 12 hours a day for the past seven months, Ser ling has written 21 of the 26 scripts. "The beauty of it is we're not restricted to any era or locale." he explained. "We go from a tramp steamer to a guy in an asteroid with a female robot, to a western. It has tremendous scope." At 34 Serling is a scarred vet teran of 10 years of TV writing, including "Playhouse 90." "The U. S. Steel Hour," "Studio One" and "Climax." "I began producing so I could write for myself, have a hand in the casting, and meet sponsors on their own ground." he concluded. NEWS CHUCKLES United Press International QUITE A SHOCK BRACKNELL.
