)eepness of 'Loving Couples'
feeds Audience Participation
AMEND HOUSE BILL:
State Senate Votes
For Sunday Liquor
By AVIVA KEMPNER
Essentially two difficulties in
reviewing "Loving Couples" are
that both deep introspection and
several viewings are necessary.
Labeled "an adult motion picture
from Sweden," the movie offers
sophisticated entertainment for
the audience which is accustomed
to the films of Fellini and Berg-
man, or just interested in pro-
The plot revolves around three
pregnant women ready to have
their babies, and the different
ways by which they reached their
common condition. The movie be-
gins with hospital scenes of the
three preparing for their deliver-
ies. These continue throughout
until the end when they give birth.
The flashbacks make up most
of the movie, and the returns to
the hospital are marvelously done.
'The Happening' Only
A Series of tMishaps
By ANN MUNSTER
"Another day when nothing is
going to happen," the lament with
which actress Martha Hyer gives
us our first glimpse of what "The
Happening" has to offer, is pro-

queness and cinematic" merit is.
probaly the enormous degree of
prowess required to pack such a
huge amount of motion into the
film while carefully keeping out
any significant action.
In another early scene Miss
Hyer admires Sure shot (Michael
Parks) for ,being able to awaken
without remembering whether or
not he had made love to her. She
sets the scene for a foursome out
on a lark which none of them
has the joie de vivre to appre-
.And the bodies which lie strewn
all over the set in the first scenes
are another aspect of the grotes-
que display of obscenity and ab-
surdity which fills the screen, vir-
tually uninterrupted by human
Both character and action are
so exaggerated as to be beyond
all credence. The satire is aimed at
no significant targets, and is lack-
ing in internal logic.
With the Supremes in their us-
ual good form, sounding very
much like an ensemble of pussy-.
cats, most of the actors deviate
from' their customary screen im-
ages. Anthony Quinn in particular
creates the impression that the
whole caper is giving him such a
The only consistency which the
movie displays is the complete
boredom which plagues all char-
acters at every turn and twist of
In a sense, "The Happening"
lives up to its name. The entire
plot is composed of a series of re-
versals, leading to no ultimate cli-
max. But the thrills that this kind
of activity is supposed to produce
in its participants are quite ab-
sent, from both actors and aud-
"It was all a fake," Anthony
Quinn's lament as he discovers
that absolutely no one, not even
his mother, is willing to exert any,
effort to save his life, is an apt
description of this movie.
The film rings falsely as a take-
off on twentieth century cyni-
cism. These actors are too bored
with life to succeed as comic
characters. And Anthony Quinn
never manages to cure his head-
The four students on a caper
are so lacking in originality that
they end up following the middle-
aged gangster turned successful
executive as though he were the
Pied Piper of Hamlin.
For instance, a seduction is par-
alleled to nurses holding down
Each woman reminisces about
her childhood and the separate
stories become connected later be-
cause they come in contact with
each other. One woman, Angela,
has been brought up and influ-
enced by her spinster aunt Petra.
But Angela does not listen to
her aunt's warning, nor follow
her aunt's own personal experi-
ence. She is a member of an
upper class Swedish family which
hardly practices what it preaches,
so she gets a "new teacher"
whose lessons she cannot easily"
The other two women are both
members of the lower class. Their
distinction as servants is constant-
ly emphasized. One of them is
willingly seduced by her "master"
and the other suffers from her
hate of the wealthy class. Their
background contains stories of
past seductions, disappointing
marriages, and the whims of the
The movie contains a bold
treatment of many topics. All the
aspects of sexual experience from
homosexual to adulterous are ex-!
One sees the decadence of the
Swedish welathy class in the early
The problems of rivalry between
the sexes, what is love and hap-
piness, and equality between class-
es are all raised in the movie.
The lines are often very reveal-
ing, and even sometimes over-
whelming. The symbolic use of
food (in scenes similar to "Tom
Jones"), dogs and other numerous
elements are consistent.
After seeing the movie the
meaning of the title appears
ironic. All the babies are not pro-
ducts of 'loving couples'. Maybe
the need for people,, irrespective
of their social class, to feel is the
requirment necessary for a rela-
tionship of love.
Even if the intended points are
unclear, the frank and excellent
treatment of the subject matters,
plus the excellent acting, merits
the close viewing of this movie.

The Sunday sale proposal, sup-
ported by Detroit Democrats, is
sought by city business and con-
vention interests. The provision
would allow county boards of
supervisors to approve Sunday sale
of liquor by majority vote.
Liquor could be sold by the glass
after noon on Sunday in establish-
ments which derive 50 per cent of
their receipts from food, enter-
tainment or other services.
If a county board refused tloj
act on the issue, a referendum
could be forced by petition of 10
per cent of the county voters.
