Of butterflies

and

freoedom!

By JAQUES
DETROIT-Butterflies are free and flying around the Fischer
Theatre tonight and for the next few weeks. This play, which
opened last year with Keir Dullea, of 2001 fame, to rave notices
and many awards, has come to Detroit with David Huffman in
the leading role. He is marvelous.
The story centers around his escape from mother and Scars-
dale to Greenwich Village. Not much for openers, until you realize
he's blind. The secret is well-kept until a girl from next door,
played by Kristina Callahan, barges in and makes a few rude com-'
ments. The sensitivity of the writing allows the audience to laugh
at their own slips in conversation. How often during the day do
we use the word 'see' when we mean something else? It's only
embarrassing when you're talking to a-blind person.
The intricacies of the plot aren't very much so. Mother leaves
at the end to go back to Scarsdale, by this time refusing to take
her son along. Girlfriend has succeeded in getting cast in a nude
play and plans to move in with the director-she's the butterfly,
of course. But the whole play is worth the last scene.
Remember who the mother is! Gloria Swanson is 71; she re-
tired from the movies in 1932, and mosti of us have only seen her
on the Late Show. P.S.-Go see her in person! Treat it as a joke,
a reminiscence, a bit of nostalgia, or a museum curiosity when you
go in. When you come out, you have seen a performance, and you
won't forget it.
She takes the last scene of what hes so far been a pretty pre-
dictable little play and really socks you with it. We've been given
hints all through the evening, but when she leaves the stage, she's
turned around the overprotective-mother cliche in a very convinc-
ing fashion. This releases Mr. Huffman, who has not made a mis-
move around his little world all evening, except when someone else
moves something on him, and then proceeds to go beserk. The
controls break down when his girl walks out, and as she stops to
say goodbye-there is another flash of playwriting which is very
exciting.
I don't think this is the greatest play ever written. It is very
nearly the worst directed, which doesn't help. But see what theatre
really can be-go and see it. There's some life in the magnificant
'invalid yet!

" 'JOE' is not merely an extraordinary film; it is a
small artistic miracle. Only rarely inthe turmoil of
human events does a work of fiction speak so clearly,
with such brutal directness to the core truths of the
condition of life that no matter what one's beliefes,
there is no denying its validity. 'JOE' is approached
for sheer impact and importance only by'Z,''PATHS
OF GLORY,' and the final scenes of 'EASY RIDER.'
No one conceiving this film, a year ago, could have
known how loudly it would speak today. It is a one-
in-a-million."
