March 16
Trouble in Paradise (Aud. A, 7 and
10:20) Mirian Hopkins and Herbert
Marshall play two high-society jewel
thieves in this romantic romp directed
by Ernst Lubitsch, the master of the
sophisticated sex comedy.
The Shop Around the Corner (Aud. A,
8:40 only) Another sex comedy by Er-
nst Lubitsch, that art deco Eros of
Hollywood filmmakers. This one's set
in Budapest, where James Stewart and
Margaret Sullivan find each other
through a dating service.
Buster and Billie (Nat. Sci., 7, 8:45
and 10:30) A popular teenage boy falls
for a poor, ragged girl who serves as
the local school's sexual outlet. A bleak,
heart-rending sexual tragedy on the or-
der of the Last Picture Show.
High Anxiety (MLB, 3, 7 and 10:20)
One of Mel Brooks' best comedies - or
worst; the debate is fierce among
Brooks fans. A lovingly. detailed parody
of Hitchcock suspense thrillers, with
Cloris Leachman, Harvey Korman, and
Brooks himself.
The Producers (MLB3, 8:40 only) Mel
Brooks' first movie offers two extraor-
dinarily funny performances: the late
Zero Mostel as a crooked Broadway
producer, and Gene Wilder as a
neurotic CPA. Together, they tangle
with Nazi fanatics, crazed acid freaks
and a gay butler named Carmen Ghia
in their quest for the perfect tax ripoff.
Dirty Harry (100 Hutchins;. 7 and 9)
Clint Eastwood, who has the steely good
looks of the Great American Hero and
the acting technique of a file cabinet,
plays a police inspector battling a nasty
urban terrorist.
17th Ann Arbor 16mm Film Festival
(Old A&D, 7, 9 and 11) Continuous
showings of this year's contestants in

what is considered the finest amateur
film festival in the United States. Each
show features an entirely different
selection of films each night of the
March 17
Two short womens' films, both at7
and 9 at Aud. B, Angell: The Fight
Against Black Monday, and With
Babies and Banners (an entry in this
year's 16mm Film Festival).
To Have and Have Not (Aud. A, 7 anO
9) Lauren Bacall, that slinky blonde
pantheress, made her screen debut in
this film as Humphrey Bogart's love in-
terest. Based ever so loosely on a short
story by "Papa" Hemingway.
Gone With the Wind (Nat. Sci., 7 only)
Verily, the most watchable four-hour
film ever made. Vivien Leigh's 193E
portrayal of Civil War-era heroin
Scarlett O'Hara remains as charming
and powerful as ever; she still holds her
own against Clark Gable, that burly
mustachioed embodiment of The Eter
nal Macho.
Rocky (MLB 3, 7 and 9) Sylvester
Stallone is alternately bestial and en
dearing as the small-time prize fighter
who gets a chance to go the distance
with a Muhammed Ali type. A sweet lit
tle tale combining romance, good clear
violence and The Little Engine Tha
Young Frankenstein (MLB 4, 7 an
9:15) The best, most heartfelt parody o
that venerable Hollywood film icon, the
Frankenstein flick, barring The Rocky
Horror Show. Gene Wilder takes Basi
Rathbone's place as Son of Franken
stein, and Peter Boyle, of all people, is
his monster.
Ann Arbor 16mm Film Festival (Ol
A&D, 1, 7 and 9) See Friday's listings.


March 18
Ann Arbor 16mm Film Festival (Old
A&D and Aud. A, 7, 9 and 11) Winners of
the festival will be shown at both
locations. There are three separate
shows, all different.
March 19
The bonus (Old A&D, 7 only) A recent
film directed by Sergei Mikaelien,
about construction workers who refuse
a pay bonus in order to protest working
conditions, and what happens as a
result. Sounds like Social Realism,

n This lurid, 1938 exploitation film, osten-

horrific tale about a sweet little girl

death knell of the "spooky movie";

stars Alec Guiness, Sessue Hayakawa,
and William (gagh!) Holden.

On Saturday, March 17th, a Univer-
sity tradition - with revisions made -
will be revived when the University
School of Music sponsors a dance at the
Union Ballroom which they say will be
their biggest event of the season.
Mark Koehneke, the chairman of the
event said that the dance is called "A
Soiree," meaning an evening party or
gathering. "The idea: for the dance
comes from the "J-Hap, which used to
be the biggest annual dance at U of M
from 1872-1960," Koehneke explained.
The "J-Hops" of the past were spon-
sored by the junior class in honor of the
graduating senior class, although this is
not the case now. "Even in the 30s and
40s, when fraternities and sororities
were so popular, the "J-Hop" over-
shadowed their events as it was "the"
thing to go to on campus, and often at-
tracted over 2,000 people," Koehneke
With this spirit the students of the
School of Music intend to continue the
"J-Hop" tradition with Saturday's "A
Soiree" in hopes of generating enough
proceeds to buy P.A. equipment which
cannot be obtained through the ad-
ministration because of their tight
budget. The P.A. equipment will be
used by the Jazz Band and for outdoor
concerts by the other School of Music
bands and orchestras.
The always-energetic Jazz Band will
provide the evening's beat, keeping in
the tradition of the 30s and 40s sound,
but occasionally exploring many other
different eras of music.
"A Soiree" begins at 9:00 p.m. on
Saturday and will last until 1:00 a.m. at
the Union Ballroom. The dress is semi-
formal, and tickets run $7.50 per couple
and $4.00 for singles. Tickets can be ob-
tained at Ticket Central, the School of
Music or at the door. The evening in-
cludes food, door prizes, a dance con
test and, of course, the Jazz Band -
reason enough to check it out.
Prof. Robert Schechter of the
University of Texas at Austin has been
awarded the 1979 Donald L. Katz Lec-
tureship in Chemical Engineering from
the University of Michigan.
He will deliver the Katz lectures at
the University March 29-30.
The.lectureship, inauguarated in
1971, is awarded annually by the
University's department of chemical
engineering to a distinguished resear-
cher in the field of chemical
engineering and petroleum technology.
It is named for Prof. Emeritus Donald
L. Katz, a leading authority on oil and
natural gas energy.
