As "sweet smoke" was passed

It looked like a farce, at first,
and maybe it was. But some of it
was real-at least to some.

By JOHN LOTTIER
and STEPHEN FIRSHEIN
Does your ten-year old Kel-
vinator refrigerator's inside light
work? If you're blind, you'd better
hope not.
'Wait Until Dark,' now playing
at the Michigan Theatre, is the
story of one pretty, young, chic,
easily excitable blind girl (Audrey
Hepburn) and her quest to be-
come the "best blind woman in the
world"-her pitfalls, her victories,
her struggles, her travails.
Directed by real-life hubby Mel
Ferrer, the movie is a psychological
study in terror that keeps the
viewers glued to their seats, and
their eyes riveted to the silver
screen, during each sanguinary
episode. Adapted from the Broad-
way play of the same name,
"Wait" is reminiscent of former
film landmarks like "Repulsion,"
"Psycho," and "Macabre," noted
for their New Wave approach to
bleeding.
Alan Arkin as the greasy psych-
path par excellence from Scars-
dale; Richard Crenna, (Walter
Denton of "Our Miss Brooks,") as
the killer caught in the middle;
Jack Weston as a glassy-eyed,
obese-obtuse side-kick who dies a
cruel, unnatural death under the
wheels of a furious Tempest; Ef-
rem Zimbalist, Jr. as Audrey's
photographer-husband with the
best winter sun tan east of the
i Adirondacks; and Samantha Jones
ias the curvaceous corpse in the
clothes closet.
Fate would decree that these
principals wind up in a bizarre web
of conspiracy surrounding the
tmysterious disappearance of a
dope-filled, music playing rag doll.
The plot is simple: Samantha
Jones flies Air Canada to Ken-
nedy International Airport, where
she gives this doll to a photographer
(Efrem, Jr.) and is subsequently
killed by her partner Alan who
blackmails two recently released
convicts (Dick and Jack) to re-
trieve the doll from Audrey
(Efrem's wife), who has had the
doll stolen by Gloria (the kid up-
stairs who looks out for Audrey
when Efrem is away taking pics).
But Audrey doesn't know the doll
has been stolen, or why everybody
wants it in the first place.
One sunny day, Efrem goes on
an asignment, leaving his wife de-
fenseless. Then Alan, Jack, and

Dick go to work on poor Audrey ...
The tension mounts: Will Au-
drey thwart the sinister designs of
the trio? Will Gloria get through
to Efrem before Alan gets through
to Audrey? Will Alan get Jack be-
fore Jack gets Alan? And what
about Dick's conscience? Do you
think we're going to tell you? You
should live so long-unlike most
of the people in the picture, but
not all.
The upshot of all this nonsense
is that "Wait," is well worth wait-
ing for. With razor-sharp perform-
ances by Audrey, Alan and Jack,
nice support from Dick and the
kid, and a real bust from Efrem
(but he isn't around much any-
way), the picture is the best sus-
pense film to come out of Holly-
wood (even though it was filmed
in New York City) in a long time.

BOB
IDYLAN'

By RICHARD FRIEDENBERG
Cinema Vrit6 in its fullest
glory is the form of this portrait,
"Don't Look Back," of early Dy-
lan. Except for the beautiful set
up shots in concert, the film is
frought with sound, focusing, and
lighting problems which do notI
detract from the effect at all dueI
to the subject interest -and an
able job of editing.
A shaky handheld camera
brings out the retarded adoles-
cence exhibited by the singer. In
"interviews" with a science stu-
dent trying to be friends and a

Time reporter trying to do his job
(odious as some may believe it to
be), the ubiquitous cameraman
catches Dylan's very two-valued
opinions-i.e., what he's got to
say is not only where it's at, but
much too where it's at to let the
rest of the world in on. Except
his friends.
Oft seen and heard Joan Baez
is almost the antithesis of Bob's┬░
self-rightous rage - unassuming
smiling, unambiguously living in
a separate room. Cut to her face
-"Well," (yawn) "I guess I'll go
to bed" (door closes).

an artistic-tempered father image
for young lost Bob is shown in a
very good scene haggling over
prices for Dylan's prowess. Per-
haps the most interesting scene"
in the whole show is a small party
in which the just-then-blossoming
Donovan modestly plays a song-
blushing all the way-then relin-
quishes the guitar-with stars in
his eyes-to Dylan, who, maybe
despite himself, is obviously im-
pressed by the novice.
All in all it's an excellent pic-
ture of Bob Dylan - the very
young writer-singer very impress-
ed with himself.
