this one every night for a
week. Cecil B. DeMille's 1952
Oscar winner for best picture
is a delight for the whole fami-
ly. And what a cast! Charlton
Heston, Betty Hutton, Cornell
Wilde, Dorothy Lamour and,
of course, James Stewart as
2 the clown with a past. Pure
hokum but enjoyable all the
way. Introduce your kids to
this one immediately."
The King of Comedy . . .
"Robert DeNiro is, and I love
this name, Rupert Pupkin, a
schlemiel of the first order.
Director Martin Scorese


created a biting satire of the
state of celebrity in this coun-
try. Pupkin is an untalented
man who kidnaps talk show
host Jerry Lewis and cons his
way to hosting his late night
program. This is one of
DeNiro's best and most
overlooked performances. The
scene where he shows up
uninvited at Lewis' weekend
home is sure to give you the
willies." 111
