'No Way To Treat a Lady'
by Daniel Okrent
IT'S A WEEKNIGHT in Ann Arbor, during the summer. You
don't have anything to do, of course. The University Musical
Society has a sparse summer schedule, and there's no PTP to
attract you. Generally, the selection of films is second-rate, 'as
the theater people seem reluctant to risk an expensive-to-rent
film because the major portion of their audience is home for
vacation. Still, there are a few semi-gems among the chaff. No
Way To Treat a Lady is a good way to treat a blah evening.
It is not a cinema masterpiece, for sure. Nor is it even good
as pictorial literature. The screenplay is adapted from a novel
by William Goldman, and the peaks and valleys of Goldman's
on again-off. again writing are evident. Familiar stereotypes
prance across the screen like Goldman's gang in Boys and Girls
Together and would be a bit bothersome, were they not treated
with the correct self-spoofing that Goldman is able to convey.
It has a Goldmanesque endirig, seemingly tacked on to the end
for want of anything better. But who cares: the whole thing is
fun while it lasts.
Much of the credit is due to Rod Steiger, who has been given
the chance to portray his incredible versatility. His seven roles
are almost autobiographic, as they seem to embody a film his-
tory of Steiger's wondrous career. He plays, mainly, a criminal
psychopath who uses various disguises to gain entry into the
homes of his intended victims, and many of them are brief
replays of some of the actor's excellent previous performances.
AT ONE MOMENT he is the convincingly flitty Joyboy that
he played in The Loved One, at the next he has the smooth
urbanity of Komarovski in Dr. Zhivago. Thrown in for extra
measure is a neat Barry Fitzgerald, and the other cameos show
that this man can squeeze gorgeous caricatures out of pat roles
like no other actor working today. We are even treated to a good
straight-facing of W. C. Fields.
What else? As Steiger skips about town strangling frumpy
single women, either widowed or otherwise unmarried, he is
chased by honest cop George Segal, whose frankly labeled Jew-
ish mother, played by Eileen Heckart, is a yiddishe mama of a
vastly improved and updated quality. Not a repeat of the common
fresh-from-the-pale Gertrude Berg type, George's mom is a
second-generation personification done up in kreplach, l1tkes,
and-accurately-bouffant hair aptly tipped with a steel-gray
beauty shop job. She's lovely.
LEE REMICK is ready-mix frosting, thrown in to satisfy
Segal's frustrated libido. Her MacLean's toothpaste wholesome-
ness, poorly mixed with hints of sophistication (she tells that
Randy Beautiful, whom she has been sleeping with for a while,
"wanted my body, not my mind") is nothing worth raving about.
Her breasts come through nicely in her first costume, though.
I haven't said much about the director, Jack Smight, because
he didn't do much. His technical repertoire consists of some
rather tedious jump-cuts, and quick zooms.,Every so often his
camera pans on an impressive police department telephone-
tracing switchboard. But he does show a sense for good sight
gags, he keeps up a quick pace to keep things from getting boring,
and he generally lets his actors show their skills fully as much
as they deserve.
Like most Steiger films, this one is worth something be-
cause it is, clearly, a Steiger film. Surely that alone is worth an
Azin Arbor summer night.

budge, and on the .grassy campus
outside where perhaps 500 to 600
supporters and opponents of the
demonstrators milled about.
One reporter said that several
newsmen had observed policemen
kicking and clubbing students al-
ready knocked down.
A senior faculty committee also
condemned the latest outburst of
student disorder on the school's
Morningside Heights campus,
calling on all students to disasso-
ciate themselves from those "who
are clearly intent upon the de-
struction of the university."
The executive faculty commit-
tee said the action of students,
who barricaded Hamilton Hall
early yesterday was "destructive
of all efforts to create a climate
of mutual discussion."
The committee skid the action
was part of "a politics of confron-
tation" and that those engaging
in such politics "bear the major
responsibility for resort to the

a broad base of students seek a

and more than 200 injuries. The

From Wire Service Reports
Police raided the San Francis-

night to clear the administration
building of protesters and ar-
rested 27 students.
An orderly sit-in started in the
building during the afternoon.
The number of students dwindled
from 200 to 26 by night. The last
26 decided to remain in the build-

Reston said he thought Hum-

to a question by a student
whether Humphrey as Presi-
dent would "continue the divis-

"I can't conceive in my mind
what you would do as Vice
President under Johnson," Res-

into his office and tell him you
intended to go to Ann Arbor
and denounce his policies.
"Images don't count," Res-

the facts about Hubert Hum-
phrey are that he has always
had to choose between loyalty
to the President and support of
his policies. He chose loyalty.
I have always thought he nated
When asked later whether
his statement was based on
speculation or first-hand infor-
mation, Reston seemed to mis-
understand the question. "I
don't want to be dogmatic
about this," he said. But, when
pressed, he said, "I do have
first-hand knowledge of what
Hubert Humphrey think.."
