FRIDAY
CINEMA
Adam's Rib (Old A&D, 7 and 9:05) -
Husband-wife lawyer team takes op-
posing sides in trial of accused would-
be husband-slayer. 1949 battle of the
sexes comedy is prized by some as the
quintessential Tracy-Hepburn vehicle,
but three decades removed, it comes
across laborious, unsophisticated and
creaky, creaky, creaky.
Joe Hill & Sacco and Vanzetti (Angell
Hall Aud. A, Joe Hill at 7, Sacco at 9) -
A pair of foreign-produced entries, each
focusing on American political mar-
tyrs. Both films have remained under
circulatedĀ° since' their release and,
reportedly, are rather underwhelming
as well.
The Devil is a Woman (MLB 3, 8:40
only) - Early Josef von Sternberg-
Marlene Dietrich collaboration.
Alice in the Cities (Nat. Sci. Aud., 7 &
9) - Much-acclaimed film by German
director Wim Wenders about the
European wanderings of a,
photographer and his child companion.
A Clockwork Orange (MLB 4, 7 &
9:30) -Kubrick's distortion of the
Burgess novel suggests violence is not
only fun, it's also moral and necessary.
Memorably directed, brilliantly acted,
but nonetheless one of the few truly ob-
scene films of our time.
SATURDAY
November 4
CINEMA
The Seven Year Itch (Angel, Aud. A,
7 & 9) - Happily-married man finds
himself succumbing to the lures of a
blonde bombshell. Billy Wilder's
famous 50's comedy is a bit shopworn
today, but still good for a large share of
laughs. With Marilyn Monroe and the
much underrated, now-forgotten Tom
Ewell.
13th International Tourney of
Animation (MLB 3, 7, 8:40, 10:20) -
Annual collection of prize-winning
animated films.
Seduction of Mimi (Old A&D, 7 &
9:05) - Marxist factory worker runs
afoul of Sicilian Mafia on one hand, his
estranged wife on the other. Over-
praised, leeringly unfunny comedy by
Lina Wertmuller, with its hero
grotesquely overplayed by the usually
excellent Giancarlo Giannini.
The Shoot Horses, Don't They? (Nat.
Sci. Aud, 7 & 9:15) - Apocalyptic
1930's dance marathon serves as a
metaphor for an interminable, high-
budget exercise in dime-store existen-
tialism. Ruinously overblown, Sidney
Pollack's stodgy production
claustrophobically smothers fine per-
formances by Jane Fonda, Susannah
York and Gig Young, yet strangely ac-
centuates a perfectly ghastly one by
Michael Sarazin.

MONDAY

November 6
CINEMA
Mad Love (Angell Aud. A, 7 only) -
Profoundly obscure 1930's horror flick'
starring Peter Lorre in purportedly
"One of his greatest roles" as a mad
doctor. Have they forgotten M so
quickly?t
Of Mice and Men (Angell Aud. A, 8:15
only) - Fine adaptation of the Stein-
beck novel. Burgess Meredith and Lon
Chaney Jr. hone the George-Lenny
relationship to a comi-tragic fineness,
and the'film in general remains
remarkably faithful' to the book - a
Hollywood rarity.
EVENTS
Chuck Mangione, Hill Auditorium, 8
p.m.
TUESDAY
November 7
cinema
The Human Condition, Pt. III: The
Soldier's Prayer (Old A&D, 7:30 only,
admission FREE) - Japanese film
about a prisoner of war during the
Russo-Japan conflict of tie early 20th
century.
Straight Time - (Angell Aud. A, 7 &
9) - Quite recent Dustin Hoffman film
about a professional criminal whose
trail through life leads only down,
down, down. The film vigorously
eschews the standard crime film good-
man-gone-wrong sentimentality, yet in
pursuit of that goal the picture becomes
as arid, sparse and uninvolving as any
film in recent memory. Hoffman brings
all his talent to bear in creating his ex-
con protagonist, but succeeds only in
producing a hero one not only can't
sympathize with, but ultimately can't
care about one way or the other. I
WEDNESDAY
November 8
CINEMA
A Separate Peace (Nat. Sci. Aud., 7 &
9) - Film adaptation of John Knowles'
soupy but best-selling novel about love,
hate, sex and coming of age at a boys'
prep school. Possibly well-done. but
definitely genre - proceed with
caution.
Bonnie and Clyde (Old A&D, 7 & 9:15)
Not only a brilliant film but also one
of the most historically pivotal works in
the annals of cinema, effectively tor-,
pedoing Hollywood's tyrannical con-
cept of "the wellmade film" perhaps
forever. Artistic and archival bravos to,
all involved.
I Want a Solution and The Mummy
(Angel Aud. A, Solution at 7, The
Mummy at 9) - A pair of Egyptian
films, products rarely seen anywhere in
the Western world, much less Ann Ar-
bor. The latter film sounds like it might
provide a fascinating contrast to the
multifold American camp-horror films
on the same subject. Admission to these
showings is FREE.

THURSDAY
November 9
CINEMA
The Cruel Sea and The Law (Angell
Aud. A, Cruel Sea at 7, The Law at 9) -
The Middle East film series continues
with these entries from Kuwait and
Iran. FREE admission.
Battle of Algiers (Old A&D, 7 & 9:15)
- Gillo Pontecorvo's enthralling, epic
re-creation of Algeria's struggle for in-
dependence from the French. Forget
the fact that the Algerians are probably
worse off economically and politically
now than they were then; It's still fun to
bask in the sheer good-vs.-evil roman-
ticism of it all..
Commercial Cinema
The Big Fix (Campus) - Richard
Dreyfuss stars as an ex-Berkeley
radical working as a detective who fin-
ds himself drawn into murder and
political intrigue in the seventies.
Goin' South (State) - Jack Nicholson
starred in and directed this amiable but
very lightweight western-comedy about
an ex-criminal hooked up with a pretty
but frigid young wife. John Belushi has
an amusing (if small) role, and the
movie rates slightly higher than most
television fare.
Comes a Horseman (Michigan) -
Starring Jane Fonda and James Caan,
this is one of the new wave of "up-
dated" westerns that try to undercut
-the Old Romanticism with the New
Reality. A fair effort.
Carnal Knowledge (Fifth Forum) -
Mike Nichols' interesting but
ultimately sterile examination of
changing sexual mores in the last 20
years. Focusing on the divergent lives
of two college buddies in the fifties
(Jack Nicholson and Art Garfunkel),
the picture offers more heavy
moralizing than it can support.
Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of
Europe? (Briarwood) - We heard it
was Ray Kroc, but you'll have to see for
yourself. With Robert Morley, George
Segal, and Jacqueline Bisset.
Midnight Express (Bria1~wood) - A
brilliant adaptation of the true story of
Billy Hayes (Brad Davis), a 22-year-old
American arrested for possession of
hashish in Turkey and put through the
hellish rituals of the Turkish penal
system.
The Boys From Brazil (Briarwood)
- A Marathon Man-type story with
many clones of Hitler and a notable ab-
sence of supra-thriller.ideas. The Nazis
are the bad guys. With Lawrence
Olivier.
Animal House (Briarwood) -
National Lampoon's fun but unscathing
look at college life in the early sixties. A
lot of the jokes aren't that hysterical,
but the movie's message - "Be
Crazy!" - seems apt for our time.
death on the Nile (Fox Village) - An
Agatha Christie thriller.
Up In Smoke (Fox Village) - If
marijuana doesn't damage your brain,
' then how come so many junior high kids
think Cheech and Chong are funny?

CINEMA
Children of Paradise (Old A&D, 7 and
10:15) While occupying Nazis tried to
hunt them down, director Marcel Carne
and his film troupe spent three years
hopping through wartime France,
filming wherever and whenever they
could. The resulting film about the lives
and loves of 19th century theater people
is one of thewmost vibrant, ecstatic
tributes to the human spirit ever put on
film. Unquestionably one of the half-
dozen or so best movies ever made, and
almost certainly the most enjoyable.
Don't miss this one.
Far From the Madding Crowd
(Angell Aud. A, 7 & 9:30) - Julie
Christie, Alan Bates, and Peter Finch
star in John Schlesinger's adaptation of
the Hardy novel. Seldom-seen and
reportedly about as slow-going as its
literary counterpart.
