ArPPEN For the week of
ApriI6 through 12

April 6
Fata Morgana (Aud A, 7 and 9)
Werner Herzog observes life in the
ahara desert.
The Turning Point (Nat Sci, 7 and
9:15) A few stunningly executed ballet
numbers by Mikhail Baryshnikov make
this film well worth seeing. Aside from
the dancing, there is a dull,-forced plot
about the mid-life crises of an aging
ballet star (Anne Bancroft) and her
housefrau friend (Shirley MacLaine)
who envies her success and indepen-
Everything You Always Wanted to
Know About Sex, But Were Afraid to
Ask (MLB 3, 7 and 10:20) "Everything
you always wanted to know about
Woody Allen but were too embarrassed
to laugh at."-Cream Magazine. Not
one of the Bespectacled One's best.
What's Up, Tiger;Lily? (MLB 3, 8:40
only) Woody Allen, fresh from his early
career as a gag writer, took a trashy,
sexy Japanese spy flick, erased the
soindtrack, and redubbed it with his
own dialogue. The result is a
creamingly funny parody of the secret
gent genre. Highly recommended.
Small Change (Old A&D, 7 and 9:05)
Francois Truffaut is one of those rare
artists who can recall, in his portraits of
children, what it was really like to be
very young, without sentimentality or
condescention. Which is exactly what
Small Change is about.
A Big Hand for the Little Lady (100
Hutchins, 7 and 9) Henry Fonda plays a
timid homesteader who gets involved in
a poker game in Laredo, where men are
men, women are women and the stakes
are very, very high.
April 7
Outrageous (Aud A, 7 and 9) The tired
Id maxim that madness is the only
sane response to the insanity of modern
life is trotted out again in this story of a
schizophrenic young woman and a
professional cross-dresser who defy the
"normal" world by setting up house
together. Sweet transvestite Craig
Russell does a series of excellent im-
personsations of Carol Channing, Judy
Garland, and other female biggies

along the way.
Steppenwolf (Nat Sci, 7, 8:45 and
10:30) Max von Sydow portrays Here
mann Hesse's brooding, attractive
middle-aged hero whose tortured
psyche erupts in a spectacular battle
between Id and Superego, with a little
help from a friendly demimondaine and
a few funny yellow cigarettes.
Paths of Glory (MLB 3, 7 and 10:20)
An anti-war film by Stanley Kubrick,
about a French army division involved
in the Battle of Verdun during WWI.
Kirk Douglas plays a humanitarian of-
The Killing (MLB 3, 8:40 only)
Melodrama about a group of criminals
who victimize a race track. "Direction
by Stanley Kubrick, a newcomer at that
time, is unnecessarily arty but in-
teresting. "-Movies on TV.
. A Slave of Love (Old A&D, 7 and 9:05)
An Ann Arbor premiere of Nikita
Mikhalov's film about personal life in
Russia during the Bolshevik revolution.
April 8
Fireman's Ball (Aud A, 7, 8:30 and
10) A party tossed by a group of
Czechoslovakian fire fighters disia-
tegrates into gleeful chaos. Directed by
Milos (Hair) Forman.
Repulsion (Old A&D, 7 and 9:05) A
scary. Freudian psychological thriller
by Roman Rolanski about a psychotic
young manicurist (Catherine Deneuve)
whose fear of her own sexuality causes
her to murder the men whom she unwit-
tingly leads on with her beauty. "Yes,
I've gone out with girls like that, and, to
tell you the truth, they make me
sick! "-Roman Polanski.
April 9
The Mask of Dimitrios (Aud A, 9:30
only) Peter Lorre plays a fastidious,
cat-loving mystery writer researching
a novel on an international crook. In the
process, he (naturally) runs into Syd-
ney Greenstreet, and the two character
actors do their usual funny, baroque
pas de deux.
_The Undercover Van (Aud A, 11 only)
A Joseph H. Lewis film noir about an
undercover G-man (Glenn Ford) who
must get the goods on a racketeer and

still keep up his identity as a normal
family man.
The Lost World (Old A&D, 7 only)
Willis O'Brien, whose brilliant
miniature work made King Kong rage
through New York, created a
prehistoric jungle complete with bron-
tosauruses for this superb silent fan-
tasy based on Conan Doyle's novel.
With dear old Wally Beery and Bessie
So This is Paris (Old A&D, 8:15 only)
Silent sex farce directed by Ernst
Lubisch, with Myra Loy.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
(Aud A, 8:30 and 10:45) Tour-de-force
adaptation of Ken Kesey's novel about
a mentally impeccable freewheeling
individualist (Jack Nicholson) who gets
himself committed to an insane
asylum, then proceeds to set its tyran-
nical administration on end. A winner
of multiple Academy awards, all well-
David Copperfield (Old A&D, 7 and 9)
George Cukor takes on Dickens, along
with a handful of Hollywood's finest:
WC Fields, Basil Rathbone, Lionel
Barrymore, Maureen O'Sullivan, and
the unbiquitous, obnoxious Freddie
Black Orpheus (MLB 3, 7 and 9)
A lush retelling of the Orpheus myth,
set in Brazil during Carnival (Rio's an-
swer to the Mardi Gras). Very
fashionable among the art film set
during the 50's, it's still very pleasing to
the eyes and ears. Directed by Marcel
Camus, with a soothing, somewhat
existential score by Antonia Carlos
La Notte (Aud A, 7 only)
Michaelangelo Antonioni directs yet
another study of modern alienation and
lovelessness, with Marcello Mastroanni
and Jeanne Moreau.
Illumination (Aud A, 9 only) About a
young physicist who realizes that
science is not the answer to life's
mysteries. What you say, engineer?
Ohayo (Old A&D, 8 only) Sponsored
by the Center for Japanese Film

April 12
The Little Foxes (Michigan Union
Assembly Hall, 7 and 9) Bette Davis
portrays Regina, scion of a wealthy
Southern family, a bitch supreme who
stops at nothing to satisfy her greed and
ambition. Adapted from Lillian
Hellman's play.
An Evening with Timothy Carey at
Old A&D: Tweet's Ladies of Pasadena,
at 6:30, and The World's Greatest Sin-
ner, the story of an insurance salesman
turned evangelist, with music by Frank
Zappa, at 9:30. Timothy Carey, noted
character actor and director of both
films, will speak after each showing.
Day for Night (Old A&D, 7 and 9:15)
A look behind the scenes of a French
film compnay which is shooting a
trivial meloidrama, while the lives of
the actors and technicians involved are
anything but mundane. Truffaut, who
directed, also plays the director of the
melodrama, with J.ean-Pierre Leaud
and Jacqueline Bissett as two actors
who fall into an abortive romance.
