“We are extremely proud of this record and feel that we have been foresighted enough to come up with the quality product that can do this kind of business.” It has been more than a year, or since July 5, 1971, that the Company has been able to bill a million dollars or more every week. Greenfield said. Earlier this year Warners had an unprecedented run of eight consecutive $2,000,000 weeks. This is sure to be, Greenfield predicted, the company’s biggest year in profits and performance. The two $3,000,000 weeks were due, he said, to the continuing big-money engagements of nine Warner pictures which are now in general release. . These are: “A Clockwork Orange,” “What’s Up, Doc?” “Come Back Charleston Blue,” “The Summer of ’42,” “Billy Jack,” “Klute,” “The Cowboys,” “The Candidate,” and “Super Fly.” A new way to break into Creative field A great opportunity has finally opened up for anyone new to - or trying to break into — a Creative field within any area of the entertainment industry (TV, radio, motion pictures, stage, recording, etc.). Entertainment Industry Explorers, a nonprofit Professional and social Organization has been formed by Ken Eisenberger, member of the Writers Guild of America, West and the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. He will serve as the first President. The educational benefits of membership include guest Speakers; Creative workshops; informational tours; and a newsletter listing job opportunities, courses related to the entertainment industry, and announcements of general interest. The contract, placement, and referral Service will attempt to connect talent with the need for talent. Evening meetings will be held twice a month at the Robertson Recreation Center in Los Angeles, and other committee meetings, workshops, tours and parties will be scheduled at other times and locations each month. Anyone may call (213) 274-0066 and leave their name and address for further Information and an application or write to the following address: Entertainment Industry Explorers, P.O.

The Publisher Hollywood Studio Magazine Thank you for sending me some copies of your fine magazine for review in FILM INDEX. We shall certainly be listing it in our annual periodical survey in an upcoming issue. In the meantime have you thought about distributing your magazine here in Australia? I distribute Film Index myself to retail outlets here and also handle some U.S. publications like Film Fan Monthly, Action and Views and Reviews. I would like to start off with a standing order of one hundred copies of Hollywood Studio Magazine and I would also be interested in back copies if these are available. J. H. Reid 10/2 E. Mosman Street Mosman Bay Australia 2088 Hollywood epitaphs can be stränge! Articles on death, graves, tombstones and the like I find particularly distasteful, mormid and ghoulish, but casting this aside I find this continuing myth of Harry Cohn being “one of the most hated men in Hollywood” particularly vomitous. Like the incorrect spelling of his name - Cohn, not Cohen, the Statement strikes at a man who worked hard and made movies that will live and be classics from then to eternity. The Statement maligns a man who unlike many a mogul of the movie industry, Harry Cohn made sure that after his death many of his “9-5” employees, the people no one ever writes about were taken care of and insured security for the duration of their lives. Harry Cohn if hated was hated by the high salaried incompetents that he himself justily held in contempt. No one argues that he was a complex man, but with a little more research by Mr. Taylor it would have been found out that Mr. Cohn was loved by the little people, the common man and woman who diligently worked for good salaries but for money scorned at by the fast talking con men of Hollywood who quickly made a loud noise when deflated by a pricking pin of confrontation and truth.
