Aborigine

actor's

bad deal

I LONDON, Fri. (S.S.):

I Ealing Studios are not per- mitted to pay Henry Mur- dock, aboriginal film actor, full Equity rates for his part in the Australian pic- ture "Bitter Springs."

The company said that they wanted to pay him the rate that the white actors were get- ting.

The Australian Department of Native Affairs, however, said that he must be paid only £6.

Murdock has a leading part in the film, and the situation is interesting film people in

Britain.

"Bitter Springs" is well on its i way to completion, and is likely

to get an Australian premiere before it is shown in Britain.

The operators hope to arrange a "bonza" Australian send-off before it gets its London show- ing towards the end of June.
