Kid, I'm gonna
make you a star'
Mark Deming provided a good laugh for all those attend-
ing the Robert Altman lecture at Hill Auditorium last week.
In front of one of America's premier filmmakers, here was
a young kid trying to ask the standard question of how to
break into the film business. Mark was so nervous though,
that he could hardly utter a word. He stood alone in front
of the huge crowd babbling, stuttering, mumbling, and
twitching. If he had a baseball in his hand, one might have
mistaken him for 'Bird' Fidrych. To break the tension and
hasten Mark's return to his seat, Altman asked him if he
was by chance auditioning for a part.
Several days later Deming received a call from his
brother who had spotted a small article in the Detroit Free
Press stating that Altman was looking for the kid who gave
the five minute monologue. Through the Free Press and the
University Activities Center (UAC), the two parties were
put in contact and it was over the telephone that Altman of-
fered Deming a small role in his upcoming film 'The Wed-
ding'.
"He thought I was very entertaining," said Deming,
"And he suggested that I meet with his casting director
Gary Bushnel in Chicago." Deming and Bushnel met over
lunch, and the eleventh grader from Douglas McArthur High
School in Saginaw, Michigans was offered a role as a wed-
ding usher.
What is Deming's advice for those aspiring fame in
Hollywood?" Go to an Altman lecture, act nervous, and hope
you get lucky."-

rock edge gives an indication
of things to come. The ballads
have even more backbone, from
Mark Jordan's "'two Lives," to
Convay-Miller's "Three Time
Loser," and especially Jackson
Browne's "My Opening Fare-
well." Bonnie's and Browne's
approach (and success) in mu-
sic is very compatible and she
has the ability to prove his
strengths as a songwriter, even
with one of his lesser known
numbers.
Sweet Forgiveness amounts to
the most encouraging signs
that Bonnie Raitt is still alive
and kicking it out, as she will
no doubt prove in her Ann Ar-
bor appearance this weekend.
Raitt performs Saturday night
at 8 in Hill Auditorium, bring-
ing with her veteran blueswom-
an Sippie Wallice, the Detroit
born composer of "Woman Be
Wise" and other blues classics.

Wallace has performed with
Raitt at the 1972 Ann Arbor
Blues and Jazz Festival and in
concert last year at Hill to great
acclaim.
Also joining Raitt will be Mar-
tin, Bogan and Armstrong, one
of the last remaining black
string bands performing original
swing, ragtime and blues.-The
band travelled extensively
throughout the Midwest in the
early 1940s, eventually record-
ing in Chicago, before juke box-
es killed the demand /for live
music and consequently split up
the group. Reassembled in 1970,
the veteran performers offer a
wide range of music from the
first half of the century.
