The unique Katherine Hepburn

funny Alec Guiness invents a
magical fabric in the two high-
lights of this weekend's local.
array of films. Over 15 different
movies are being screened to-
day through Sunday. Here's a
quick look at what's offered:
Long Day's
Journey Into

Arch. Aud.
Cinema Guild is handling the
honors for the Hepburn extra-
vaganza Long Day's Journey into

McDowell is purportedly "cin-
ema's most over-sexed director,"
while the Baille film is adver-
tised as an off-beat version of
the Tibetan Book of the Dead.

Fri.,
Aud. A
Cinema II grabbed some Garbo
for their Friday night offering,
vintage 1930 Clarence B r o w n
directing the immortal Greta in
O'Neill's Anna Christie.
This film doesn't have much to
offer. Its only claim to fame is
the fact it was . Garbo's first
talkie. She sounds beautifully
husky but the script is just too
rusty.

subtitles) ends Cinema II's mov-
ie weekend, and last is far from
least in the case of this French
film. Based on a story by Emile
Zola, the picture promises to be
serious entertainment as it un-
folds the tale of a young woman
who tries to provide for her fam-
ily and alcoholic husband.
Slaughterhouse
Five
Sat., Sun., 7 and 9:30
Nat. Sci. Aud.
UAC Mediatrics begins its fall
season with Kurt Vonnegut's
Slaughterhouse Five (1971), a
film not to be missed if you've
never seen it before. Adapted
from the best-selling novel with

Cinema. -weekend ff.

Night, adapted from Eugene
O'Neill's stage play by veteran
director Sidney Lumet for the
screen.
Lumet's Child's Play w i t h
James Mason endured a brief
run here last summer and of-
fered brilliant technique for a
thoroughly wasted script. Journ-
ey promises much of the tech-
nique and a powerful, emotion-
ally-charged screenplay t h a t
wears on the viewer like Hep-
burn's adiction.
Watch for Jason Robards as
one of the sons and a somber
Ralph Richardson as the father.

Cinema Guild shifts gears with
the Ann Arbor debut of 'three
films by Curt McDowell includ-
ing the much-heralded Pornogra
Follies and Bruce Baille's Quick

impact on the screen.
Women In Love (Fri., Sun.)
emerges as a banal -caricature,
and Music Lovers (Fri., Sat.)
can't get anywhere with Dr. Kil-
dare (Richard Chamberlain) try-
ing to play Tchaikovsky. Both
have incredible visual impact
though, and when he learns to
stop ego-tripping all over the
place, Russell will emerge as one
of his country's finest directors.
Sunday, Bloody Sunday (S a t .,
Sun.) is a different kind of mov-
ie about a hetero/homosexual
love triangle with poor Glenda
caught right in the middle. Peter
Finch is excellent as her aging
lover. You can't find a better
director around than John Sch-
lesinger, who did MidnighttCow-
boy and hasn't been able to for-
get it since.
Sunday is a moody, temper-
mental film that will probably
bore the hell out of some people;
it still stands as a landmark in
Jackson's acting career.

Blume in Love
The commercial theatres have
lined up an extremely dull pro-
gram. The only exception starts
today at the Michigan. Blume in
Love, starring George Segal, Su-
san Anspach and Kris Kristof-
ferson, fails as a movie but enter-
tains anyway, mainly due to Se-
gal's virtuoso performance.
You may remember Susan An-
spach from Five Easy Pieces as
the pretty girl who lived at Nich-
olson's family house. She cannot
act and proves it here.
Kristofferson is very cute and
does quite well with the slop
that was dished out to him as
dialogue. And George Segal is
George Segal - if you like him
you'll love him here.
Lost Horizon
The Campus on S. University
has captured the Ann Arbor pre-
miere of Ross Hunter's Lost
Horizon, and they can have it.
This film has lost so much money

The Man in the
White Suit
Sat., 7, 9
Aud. A
The pace picks up as we see
Alec Guiness sensationally por-
tray The Man in the W h i t e
Suit. This film, though frequent-
ly hilarious, is seldom shown in
Ann Arbor but Cinema II w a s
smart to get hold of it. The
story concerns poor Alec as a
devoted scientist, who discovers
a fabric that won't rip or get
dirty.
Directed with class by t h e
popular Alexander Mackendrick
in 1951 (Lady Killers, Sweet
Smell of Success are two of his
previous efforts), the film is a
good vehicle for Guiness, who
plays the role with aplomb.

Glenda Jackson stars in three
movies being shown by N e w
World this weekend - Women in
Love, Music Lovers and Sun-
day, Bloody Sunday. The first
two are Ken Russell productions,
so watch out. Like fellow con-

has the habit of taking great
works of art (like the D. H. Law-
rence novel) and nullifying their

This musical misinterpretation
of James Hilton's fantasy novella
doesn't come close to the 35-year
old Frank Capra version, which
was shown here last year at Cin-
ema Guild. Capra woild faint if
he ever saw what Ross Hunter
did to Shangri-La.
Paper Moon
The State Theatre refuses to
let go of Peter Bogdanovich's
Paper Moon, which must be get-
ting pretty yellow by now. Tatum
O'Neal outclasses her father
Ryan (she's only eleven) but the
picture is so cute it falls on its
face.

The Fifth Forum Last Tango

run at the Campus. Marlon gives
100 per cent and this film out-
shines everything else being pre-

ately, almost everybody has seen

obviously drawing blood.

lems on his mind in California,
circa 1962. The big beat of the
Beach Boys and the hot cars and
the fast women are all here, but
the picture is pointless.
This film is so well done all it
needed was a script. What we
are left with is supposed to pass
for cheap thrills - and it does,
beautifully.

Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl

the Wayside Theatre off Washte-
naw. The latter stars abvery
funny George Segal as a befud-

former is the old story of Fanny
Brice and Nicky Arnstein (played
by Omar Sharif).

Glenda Jackson
SEPTEMBER 14-16
Glenda Jackson is more than one of the finest and most power-
ful screen actresses of our time. She represents a new kind of
cultural presence and influence.
Every one of he.r performances has forced open new space in
film for the expression of women's experience. In each, she
vividly realizes an image of women's conscious strength and
unsentimental sensuality and tenderness.
We have assembled thre.e of her finest films to present them in
a new perspective; with some joy, we dedicate this weekend to
women's struggle.
