A

sure

fire way to

kill

the' weekend

blues

By LESLIE WAYNE
Arts Editor
One look at the ads at the
bottom of this page, or any,
other page of today's Daily will
show that the prospects for this
weekend's entertainment are
pretty bleak indeed. Sure, you
can go to see Faces or Charley
and have a good cry, you can
get drunk again (so what's so
different about the' weekend) or
you can study with your girl-
friend til the UGLI closes and
get a greasy pizza from the jug.
YEECH.
Although something can be
said for spontaneous on-the-
spot decisions, this is pretty
sloppy thinking. I mean you've
got about fifty-fifty chance for
success. What's really needed is
PLANNING. Planning--the es-
sence of a good weekend. How
can you fail with a weekend
chock full of goodies and sur-
prises that will pop up hour
after hour, minute after minute?
So in the name of advance
planning, I humbly put forward
this guide. Granted it isn't per-
fect; you can adopt it to your
personal tastes and desires. But
it's Easter weekend, Passover
time-and you can celebrate in'
the following manner:.
FRIDAY NIGHT:
MC-5 homecoming at the.
Grande Ballroom. Despite the
fact the Uncle Russ Gibbs' prices
are outrageous and the Grande
is filled with obnoxious teeny-

Hail Joanna
Every now and then a movie cdmes along
that gives one the feeling that things are
going to change. They don't really or at
least very slowly and haltingly, for habits of
mind and operation in so expensive a medi-
um as that of feature film are relatively
fixed, and the tendency is to do it the old
way. But% then The Graduate suddenly
breaks through, or Bonnie and Clyde, and
a few more people get the chance to do it
their own way. This year it may well be
Joanna, which Twentieth Century-Fox is
releasing, that will signal, another change
of direction. In technique it is fresh; its
spirit is contemporary; its attitudes are
youthfully free of cant or moralizing.
The movie was made in London, and it
tells a relatively simple story. It's all about
a pretty, leggey, teen-age girl called Joanna
who comes to London to study art and who,
let us say, is inclined to diversify her affec-
tions. It would be Wrong to call her promis-
cuous because, the word has a moralistic
ring. There's nothing bad' or wrong about
Joanna. She enjoys sleeping with whoever
happens to strike her fancy at the right
moment. Her view of reality is slightly
askew, mainly because she's almost childish-
ly caught up in a fantasy of who she is.
Michael Sarne, a twenty-eight-year-old
former pop singer and composer, photog-
rapher, journalist, book and film critic, wrote
the story and directed it; Michael Laughlin,
a twenty-eight-year-old American from Illi-
nois produced it; and, very importantly,
Walter Lassally, the brilliant young camera-
man of Tom Jones, photographed it. They
all somehow provide the conviction that
they knew exactly what they were doing and
how to do it. It's as though they said to each
other: "Let's make a. story about a crazy,
cheeky, beautiful girl, the kind who comes
to London and wanders into spmeone's bed,
who shows up at parties in Chelsea, who
seems built by nature to wear mini-skirts,
who doesn't understand a thing, and yet is
somehow lovable. And let's tell about the
people she runs into, and what happens to
them and to her because of them."
That's about all the movie does for its
two-hour length, but it does it so winningly,
with such tender, tolerant understanding
of the girl, that it is a joy to watch., For a
while, one is not even much aware of the
fact that a story is being told. We meet
Joanna casually; catch glimpses of her here
and there; suddenly are catapulted into one
of her girlish fantasies; see her yawning,
running, talking to someone at a party;
learning about life from a serious young
artist; being rejected by a boy who is as
diversified in his affections as she is inclined
to be: visiting a girl friend about to have an
abortion. In Joanna's little world, both black
and white are equally beautiful. Her best
girl friend is a beautiful black girl, whose
brother, handsome and arrogant, Joanna
falls most in love with. The black girl has a
boy friend, Lord Peter Sanderson, a young
man dying of leukemia who doesn't want
his friends to know about it, or grieve over

s AlPert
him when he goes. What helps make. the
movie so pleasing (rather than pleasant) is
that it doesn't make a "thing" out of its
racial mixing.
The film is helped immeasurably by Gene-
vieve Waite, who plays Joanna as though
playing herself. Maybe Miss Waite is
Joanna, for I can't separate her from the
role, and I don't ever want to meet her,
because it might spoil the spell she has cast
over me. Miss Waite makes you understand
why all those intelligent, talented young
people wanted to tell Joanna's story. And
she is wonderfully abetted by those who
play the people who flow in and out of her
life, such as Donald Sutherland :as Lord
Peter. Because we are made to see everyone
through Joanna's hazy view, Lord Peter Is
a modern-day saint, even though he is
rich, idle, and hedonistic. He just wants
people to enjoy life while they have it, and
he contributes what he can to that enjoy-
ment. Then there is Calvin Lockhart, as
the black nightclub owner, with a streak
of innate violence, who has his pick of girls
but likes best the complaisant Joanna; and
Christian Doermer, who won't let his birds
interfere with his pursuit of art. In a fan-
tasy ending, these and others (and here, I
think, Mr. Sarne was perhaps influenced by
the ending of Fellini's 81/) perform a show
business salute to the happy-sad-go-lucky
spirit of Joanna. A little too cheeky, maybe.
But providing the ambience, the beauty,
the nostalgia, the charm, is that limpid
photography of Mr. Lassally. And, for mood
there is Rod McKuen's score which has a
"sound" and some simple, evocative songs.
Joanna doesn't say anything "important,"
but it's right out of today, or perhaps what
young people think is today. In its way it
is brave and bold, and I hope it does well.
