From James Michener,- we have
come to expect bland historical
novels .written in the style of the
author's Quaker missionary herit-
age. From Julie Andrews, we have
come to expect sickeningly saccha-
rine performances and. a starched
high-collar carriage. In Max Von
Sydlow, we have come to expect an
actor who straits to follow his di-
rector's instructions by .properly

Christ. Together, they have in

Village Theatre) produced. a

Drivers said the cars had their
