'Fanny' Portrays
Tragic Love
THE FRENCH are supposed to have a word for it.,
Currently, the words for Love, Life, and Happiness are all the
same-Fanny. A delightful picture, and a surefire hit, "Fanny" has
everything needed for boxoffice success: warmth, humor, and a
tender, if somewhat tragic, love affair.
An adaptation of the famous Marcel Pagnol trilogy, "Fanny"
centers on the lives of four inhabitants of the Marseilles waterfront.
Leslie Caron is Fanny, a beautiful young girl, who is deeply in love
with Marius, portrayed by Horst Bucholz. He returns her love (much
too well as it turns out), but is unable to resist the lure of the Sea.

ONE of the truly marvelous subtleties of the
United States government is the way it can
say almost anything, and still assure you that
it doesn't mean what it says.
For instance, the Berlin crisis has elicited a
larger draft call, much extra spending, and
fierce "do or die" speeches. And if you agree
with such measures, you are expected to be-
lieve in their earnestness.
But if you think that only idiots or maniacs
would seriously suggest such policies, then you
can be let in on the big secret: actually, the
government agrees with you-and there's no
reason to argue, is there-and we're just say-
ing those nasty things so that those who expect
to hear nasty things won't be disappointed.
THIS EXPLANATION is reassuring; maybe
government leaders aren't such fools as
they seem to be. True,' during the election
campaign, Kennedy had urged support of
groups planning to overthrow Castro, and
everyone said, "Can't you see what he's doing?
He doesn't believe in that stuff, only he has
to appeal to the semi-literate popular American
notions of realpolitik."
And then the President went ahead and did
invade Cuba, making one wonder if maybe the
November speech-making wasn't a lot more
honest than we had all thought.
On Thursday Dean Rusk praised the South
Korean dictatorship for its steps toward democ-
racy. He cited "the vigorous and prompt steps
that the new military government of Korea
has taken in its efforts to root out corruption,
to create a new atmosphere for national recon-
struction and to provide a firmer economic
base for democracy."
Almost, it sounds like they're making the
trains run on time. And the letters people in
the United States receive from Korea have
lines cut out, presumably where undemocratic
tendencies have been spotted.
THE NEW YORK TIMES explains that the
United States decided to support the mili-
tary dictatorship only when it seemed to do
otherwise would hurt the Republic's army. The
government's values are, you see, sound.
Now, if the government were held responsi-
ble for what it says, people might like to blame
it for admiring the South Korean regime in
public. Not that the United States should go

to war against the South Koreans-only, not
show so much special admiration.
But such criticisms would be pointless, be-
cause those informed enough to know that the
Korean generals aren't approved for the Patrick .
Henry label are also informed that the whole
thing is a ruse, something the intelligent
shouldn't stoop to criticizing. Anyone who does
THIS SORT OF GAME used to be called The
Emperor's Clothes. All who were 'in,' under-
stood that actually he did so have clothes on.
Anyone who said that a high official should
know better than to run around naked was
marked as unsophisticated, if not actually de-
When John Foster Dulles carried out for-
eign policy, potential critics learned that there
was a secret strategy, and that the man wasn't
foolish, but rather (small comfort) arch-con-
Now Kennedy would like to enjoy immunity
from criticism because regardless of what the
critic might think, the President agrees with
him, only because of pressures from the masses
-you know, the masses-such Truths as the
critic believes in can't be mentioned publicly.
IT IS NOT AT ALL CLEAR who is being fooled,
by this. Obviously, somebody is, and whether
it's the critic or the public, the trickery is just
as equally bad.
If Khrushchev knows that the United States
isn't going to go to war over Berlin, what point
is there in fooling the public? And if the Rus-
sians actually think we might fight in Ger-
many, what good is it that deep inside its
heart the administration disagrees?
The only reason for the administration to
fool people is because it thinks it has to. And
if Unknown Powers in the government can
force Kennedy to publicize the war prepara-
tions, maybe they can, in time, force him to
go to war too.
Please don't think that this editorial at-
tempts to criticize-far from it. Actually, the
President agrees with every word written here.
But the masses you see-if they ever thought
he did, they would get all upset. And so we
must all continue to lie-ethically-for the
good of our democratic system.

Charles Boyer and Maurice Che-
valier are Cesar and Panisse, two
crochety old chums. Their favorite
occupations are cheating each
other at cards, calling each other
names, and waiting for an unsus-
pecting bypasser to kick a derby
hat placed over a large brick.

dreams of seeing "the lands be-
neath the winds" and runs away
to Sea. Shortly afterward Fanny
learns that she is expecting his
child. Panisse offers to marry her
and to raise the child as his own.
She accepts him, partly to avoid
a scandal, but mostly to spite
Marius who seems to have for-
gotten her entirely.
Marius later returns to find
Fanny happily married to Pan-
isse to whom she is devoted. He
trys to induce her to run away
with him, but is prevented by Ce-
sar, his father. Panisse offers to
let Fanny go - on the condition
that his son and heir is to remain
with him. Marius wants the child
he fathered, but Fanny will not
leave Panisse in any case.
In the end - happy though
somewhatsugary-Panisse him-
self suggests that Fanny marry
Marius after his death. He is an
old man and knows that his days
are numbered. He also knows that
Fanny and Marius are still in love.
* * *
ACTING in a picture with Mau-
rice Chevalier is a dangerous prop-
osition. Whenever he appears, he
is certain to steal the show -
and "Fanny" is no exception.
Chevalier's portrayal of Panisse
completely overshadows the efforts
of the other members of a fine
Both Leslie Caron and Charles
Boyer, deliver excellent perform-
ances. Miss Caron was a most de-'
lightful (and delectable) Fanny.
Although no longer cast as a great
lover, Charles Boyer handles his
character role almost as well as
Horst Buchholz does not fare
so well. Although his performance
was adequate, it was unconvincing.
He lacks the maturity needed to
convey the emotions felt by a
young man torn between two loves.
The color photography was ex-
cellent, in fact, a little too good.
The spectacular shots of Mar-
seilles and environs actually seem
to detract from the picture.
It is very easy to find faults in
a motion picture - acting, photo-
graphy, plot or direction. Yet,
there is a class of pictures that
transcend their faults and are
great pictures in spite of them.
"Fanny" is one.
-Barry Wolman

flaw in "Dondi" -- it is an
abominable movie.
There's this little orphan Annie
type, see, that this United States
army group picks up in Europe. He
follows them to America (don't
ask me how) where this rich
cynical guy (David Janssen) who
is really a softie underneath begs
his girl friend (Pattie Page) and
a host of other people to help keep
Dondi (who by this time has been
lost in the wilds of New York.)
Everybody, Walter Winchell in-
cluded, puts on a big campaign,
Dondi is found, ,boy marries girl,
and all is well.

THE ACTING is on the level of
a mediocre high school theatrical,
matched only in its lack of ex-
pressiveness and inanity by the
uttersbanality of the dialogue.
It is a comedy in which there
is nothing to laugh at, a melo-
drama in which one sympathizes
with nobody, and a romance in
which nobody is really in love.
The total emotional and intel-
lectual impact of the movie is
less than that of a television soap
opera. Everybody loves the little
kid; and a smart public relations
operation helps keep him in the
If this is the level of the comic
strip, there is serious doubt that
many metropolitan newspapers
are trying to maintain even a
sixth grade intellectual level;
Hollywood certainly isn't.
IN CONTRAST to the idiocy of
the top-billed feature, the pro-
gram also includes a beautifully
conceived and photographed movie
called "Serengeti." This movie
photographs the wild-life of the
Serengeti animal preserve and is
an articulate and intelligent ap-
peal by the father-son photo-
graphy team to preserve this area.
The movie traces their efforts
to count and trace the migration
of the animals. They show how the
present boundaries of the area
must. be changed in order to pre-
serve the animals.
It is not the bloody, gory thing
that is advertised and is cer-
tainly far more worthwhile ar-
tistically than the idiocy with
which it is paired.

Austerity Received Badly

De Gaulle Spurns UN Aid

swift return from his trip to Tunis is for
him no failure of a mission. The failure is
General de Gaulle's.
When the current Tunisian crisis broke out,
the French certainly appeared to be the in-
jured party. President Bourguiba blockaded
Bizerte and fired upon French aircraft attempt-
ing to keep up communications at a time when
the French had already reduced their strength
at their great naval base there from 40,000 to
8,000 men. De Gaulle's policy in Algeria was
setting a patterns that could be even more
easily followed in France's relations with in-
dependent Tunisia.
$ut Bourguiba, an exemplar of "gradualism,"
acted with the impetuosity of a man breaking
into a hornet's nest. The hornets emerged.

independent status is the very question in dis-
But de Gaulle, a truly great man in his
great moments, has always been somewhat
contemptuous of the United Nations. As re-
cently as last April he said in reference to the
United Nations venture in the Congo that
France "did not wish to participate either by
her men or her money in any present or pos-
sible enterprise of this organization."
HAMMARSKJOLD was given notice that the
French did not care to have him even
come to Paris at this time. In Tunisia, the
Secretary General's car, which carried the blue
and white flag of the United Nations was held
up by French paratroopers and searched.
The question was scheduled to come before
the Security Council yesterday afternoon on
a Tunisian complaint. (The meeting was boy-
cotted by the French delegation.) The French
reiterate their hope that the situation may be
settled between Tunisia and themselves.
Certainly it would be settled sooner if they
would avail themselves of the facilities readily
available to them on the East River and if they
would pay a reasonable respect to the office,
temporarily held by Hammarskjold, that rep-
resents humanity's best hope for peace in such
a crises as this.

FAR-REACHING political reper-
cussions could result in Britain
from Chancellor Selwyn Lloyd's
new austerity measures aimed at
meeting this nation's recurring
econmic crises.
There is fairly widespread dis-
appointment here on the grounds
that the measures are the same
old remedy and that the promised
new long-term approach has not
There are some observers in
Westminster who go so far as to
say that' Prime Minister Harold
Macmillan has lost his old Zip
and buoyancy, that the present
Conservative leaders have lost
their last chance to show they can
reshape the British economy to
match the modern world.
* * *
THERE ARE EVEN forecasts
that the government might have
to hold a general election in six to
twelve months because of a wave
of strikes and other troubles which
might result from what the labor
leaders call the gross injustice of
the latest austerity measures.
When Labor leader Hugh Gait-
skell denounced the Chancellor
and the government for losing a
great chance of appealing to na-
tional unity there were roars of
support from the Labor benches
in the House of Commons.
But from Macmillan's point of
view what is more disturbing for
him politically is that a consider-
able of his Conservative followers
are, either openly or privately,
deeply disappointed with the
Chancellor's 'seeming lack of a
long-term economic policy.
* * *
THIS added to the disruption
in the Conservative ranks over
the question of Britain's entry
into the European Common Mar-

ket represents the biggest threat
to unity in Tory ranks in recent
The Labor opposition and the
Liberals have given warning of
an all-out attack on the govern-
ment in the economic field. The
trade unions are indignant at the
wage-restraint policy which they
feel is not to be matched by com-
parable sacrifices in the higher-
income groups.
It remains to be seen how the
public in general will react to
the new taxes and the new re-
strictions on credit.
Labor will undoubtedly harp
increasingly on what it calls the
injustices of Tory rule and on
Tory inability to solve the eco-
nomic troubles.
IF AN ELECTION were forced
by political circumstances within
the next year, would the nation
prefer a spell of socialist planning
in place of traditional Tory policy?
Maybe not. The answer is dif-
ficult to assess until the reactions
to the new situation have had
longer to take shape.

" AM VERY ALARMED at signs
that the United States, Great
Britain, Japan and other free
world countries are toying with
the idea of recognizing Commu-
nist Outer Mongolia and admit-
ting it to the United Nations. This
could only mean another vote in
that world forum against the
free world, whose position has
already been greatly diluted by
the admission of new so-called
neutral and pro-Communist na-
tions. We can ill-afford any fur-
ther erosion of our position in the
United Nations."
-Sen. Hiram Fong

Another possibility is that the
Toryism of Macmillan and Lloyd,
as represented by the traditional
pattern of the Chancellor's auster-
ity plan, could be rejected by the
up-and-coming young Conserva-
tives in Parliament and at the
October annual party conference.
That could lead to a radical
revamping of Conservative eco-
nomic policy and a sweeping
change in the leadership, perhaps
with men such as Duncan Sandys,
Iain Macleod, and Reginald Maud-
ling coming to the top.
* * *
MEANWHILE, press comment
on the Chancellor's measures is
on the whole unfavorable. His
newspaper friends agree he is
likely to produce a short-term
answer to Britain's recurring prob-
lem of living above its means.
But on the long term, there is
widespread disappointment. The
Conservative Daily Mail fails to
see how the Chancellor of the
Exchequer's proposals will produce
a more competitive British in-
dustry with more drive and better
Lord Beaverbrook's Daily Ex-
press sees the austerity measures
as a feeble palliative. The Labor
Daily Xerald calls the new plan
"disgraceful and disastrous." The
tabloid Daily Mirror shouts "Mid-
summer Madness."
* * *
THE TIMES, of London, is not
unduly critical, but it says that
all will depend on Lloyd's ability
to continue administering his rem-
edies courageously and if neces-
sary harshly.
The political correspondent of
the Guardian, however, more
hopefully sees more that is new
in the Chancellor's statement.
Lloyd is seen "groping toward
national planning and a govern-
ment wages policy."


'Taming of the Shrew'
Boisterous, A musing
THE UNIVERSITY OF DETROIT players offered an enthusiastic
and boisterous "Taming of the Shrew" Wednesday night.
Charles Noel is brilliant as the confident and mercenary Petru-
chio who assumes the task of courting the shrewish Kate. He is being
paid not only a handsome dowry by the anxious father but a sub-
stantial fee by the lovers of Bianca, Kate's younger sister.
Since the father will not give Bianca's hand until the acid-
tongued Kate has been married off, the lovers, Gremio (Richard
Ramos) and Hortensio (Richard Halatek), pay Petruchio to "woe her,
wed her, bed her and rid the house of her."
Kate, as played by Mahalla Lenzi, is a lively and spiteful shrew.

THE UNITED STATES, busy revitalizing a
military posture designed to prevent a hot
war, is now faced with the necessity of devel-
oping diplomatic and economic offensives to
win, not just deter, cold war.
President Kennedy has laid down specific
plans for increasing the military deterrent.
His and Secretary Rusk's references to the
possibilities of negotiated settlements in the
East-West conflict have been highly general-
ized. But they have been immediately seized
upon as implying that they will not come up
with alternatives.
O LEAVE the situation stagnant would dash
a great many hopes, and promote a feeling
of futility which could eventually weaken the,
very widespread support which the military

offers the West a very good opportunity for a
diplomatic attack and a propaganda victory.
Khrushchev has laid himself wide open to
an offer from the West to talk about the status
of Berlin if he will talk about the status of the
captive countries of Eastern Europe.

to give Eastern European hopes of eventual
liberation a shot in the arm, to assure them
of world concern for their plight, and to stir
within them a determination to hang on in the
hope that, after all, liberation may just possibly
be brought about through some means other
than war.

underdogs in the satellites, but such liberation
