Listen, man! I've just come back'
from the most "here's a bullet in
your eye, bub".scrub game. It's got'
a knuckle in the ribs for all of us
"finger" haters, a suave spit in:

held the last Film Festival.
And there's this Michael Caine
guy with the glasses mild-1
mannered demeanor, anal eye to
eye gal. He. whips up the eggs
and chops the green peppers like
momma never. did, eyes the
beautymark on her right 'cheek'
and tells her, "I'll cook you the
best meal you ever had." Cut.
"That was the mohhhst delicious
meal I ever ate." He gets up,
walks to her chair and stands in
front of her. "Good." Pause. He
bends down and kisses her. "'Don't

off for him. He bends down again
and kisses her .. . as camera pans
away and off to unshaded light
bulb. Cut.
On, James!
It's, got this buckle under,
British stiff upper lip, soft lower
lip humor that leaves "Tom Jones"
in the stables and Bond under the
tables. It's got the gee whiz in-
fightings of our invisible govern-
ments-i.e., the psych side of life.
It's got the mood of a manny out
with the pram-i.e., the functional
side. It's got the sharp click, bang
sound of things-i.e., adventure.
See, it's like, this. Caine is put
on a new case. Help get the
stolen scientist back-the brain
drain is giving the government a
headache. He picks his way
through several odd lobs tossed at
him, gets the job done and gets
himself in deeper trouble with the
CIA in the process. How he cures
this headache and a bigger one
I'll leave you to find out.

"Cat Ballou" (it had nothing but
Jane Fonda). "Goldfinger" we
should have let lie. "The Collec-
tor" shouldn't happen to a nice
girl. We've got "The Ipcress File"
-the BFOC for the semester.
Now you'll know that if you
should ever be trapped in a Skin-
ner box, you shouldn't have told
your boss, "I didn't come to the
supermarket to talk about mush-
rooms and broads."
If you should ever find you are
being tailed by a Negro, you can
be sure he's from the CIA. Which
goes to prove that there is no
discrimination in Washington, as
long as it only shows on the road.
Yesssssir! It's got the image.
It has satire-underplayed, shifty,
tense and debonair. It has non-
action-but suspense you can roll
up and carry home. It's got the
camera-a "Techniscope" wide-
screen for blocking every fore-
ground against every background.
Sidney J. Furie, director of the
day, must have got such a cramp
in his tongue from making this
filter-tip thriller, that I am sure
it is still balled up there in his
mouth. Only Hitchock has ever
done better throughout one film
whose :single intent is to brush a
little load off a back, stop that'
little twitch over the left eye orI
move the date in the next seat a
little closer.
You've heard, now go and see.
Savor those split infinitives
Bond didn't even know how to
write a sentence. Wallow in that
shot that quacks at you and
makes you want to bark back. The
unusual composition, the weird
angle, the reminiscent cornball
music - there's that- knuckle in
the ribs again.

The Alba Reyes Spanish Dance
Company, which performed at
Rackham Aud. Friday night, suc-
ceeded in captivating its audience
through the particular flavor and
style of the Spanish dance. The
seven dancers performed 13 di-
verse and well-balanced numbers
against a velvet drop and with a
minimum amount of accompani-
ment: singer, Paco. Ortez; gui-
tarist, El' Castellano; and pianist,
Nino Garcia.
Whatever seemed lacking in
visual and audio effects was well
made up for by the womens' color-
ful costumes-colors ranging from
flowing white and mint green to
shocking pink and the ever-
effective contrast of red and black.
Simplicity in properties forced
the audience's attention on the
dancing, which put great demands
on individual ability. In most
cases the troupe held its own. In
a few cases, i.e., the opening num-
ber, it didn't, due to sloppy foot-
work and a lack of, adequate bal-
let training.
The corps, dancing to music by
Domenico Scarlatti, attempted a
semblance of Spanish classical
dancing. More individual coordi-
nation, greater emphasis on syn-
chronization of arm and leg move-
ments, and a more unified sense
of direction, would have made the
number more effective. Instead
one saw unfinished steps and/or
sloppy fifths and unpointed toes.
Alba Reyes was at its best in
folk and flamenco dances. In the
latter the dancers showed much
crispness and precision. Of par-
ticular note was "De Canela y
Clavo," danced by the company's
female lead, Maria Alba. The
beautiful Miss Alba, who has great;
stage presence and a great sense

temper in dance, combined this
quality with well-controlled move- By MELISSA FOSTER

fered an equally exciting counter-

part to Miss Alba's flamenca. {
In "Un Recuerdo de Zaragoza,"
a Spanish folk dance, and two
Colombian folk dances, "Pasillo"
and "Guabina," the company cap-
tured the unique expression of
gaiety and spontaneity, combined
with gay agile movements, which
characterize folk dancing.
The finale, "Fiesta Flamenca,"
was itself the "pellisco" of the
program. The crescendo from the
castanets and syncopated hand-
clapping and footstamping and
the whirl of the girls' white:
dresses with long, tiered trains
gave the appreciative audience
cause for many an ole.
It is hoped that Alba Reyes will
return. One would wish for more
attention to details of footwork
and coordination in future perfor-
mances. But the company can
capture the fiery mood and temper
which make Spanish dancing fas-
cinating.

From the "classic" approach of
Handel of the first number to the,
more contemporary types of- the
last two offerings, Taylor man-
aged to demonstrate not only the
versatility of his company, but
also the wide scope of dance styles
composing modern dance,
Throughout the evening, Taylor
demonstrated his philosophy of
dance-and it is relatively unique
-over and over again. Oddly
enough for modern dance, Taylor's
approach finds its roots in ballet.
The end result is a concept of
modern dance which is hardly of
that dark and groping breed so
often known as "modern dance,"
but which instead is only "light
and refreshing."
Paul Taylor's compositions also
include one other quality which
distinguish them from many styles
of modern dance - his exquisite
use of humor. And it is this deli-
cate use of humor which comes

creeping into his compositions at
odd moments, making them en-
tertaining and unique.
Paul Taylor has a simple ap-
proach to his dance: it is basically
dance for dance's sake, best illu-
strated, by his first number, a
,pattern dance with a little plot to
give it direction.
In this particular number he
used mainly long dance strides,
with various ballet-like steps
thrown in for variety and a mild
spoof in. the third part for sea-
soning. This dance also showed
Taylor's superb knowledge of
music in relation to dance, its
clean precise structuring.
, His second number-"From Sea
to Shining Sea" - was probably
the high point of the evening.
Aside from some structural vague-.
nesses, it proved quite delightful,
making a rather eloquent comma

ment on present-day society.
His third and last number of
the evening was perhaps his weak-
est part of the program. It didn't
seem to have any particular direc-
tion, though it was well-done and
had some well-conceived moments.
For the most part, however, Paul
Taylor's company provided an en-
tertaining evening of modern
dance, stimulating and beautifully
performed.
