Kenji Mizoguchi and Akira
Kurosawa are Japan's finest
filmmakers, unless you prefer
Inoshiro Honda's direction of
Godzilla. Mizoguchi (with a Z)
has consistently turned out
beautiful jidai-geki (historical)
films, realistic tales set within
Japan's past.
Friday's Sansho the Bailiff is
set in 11th century feudal Japan.
A family's separation occurs
when the father is exiled. The
two children are kidnapped and
sold as slaves to the brutal bail-
iff, Sansho.
Mizoguchi studied-color tech-
niques in the U. S. in 1954, re-
turning to Japan to make Tiara
Clan Saga in 1955, one of his two
color films. It is a samurai epic
set in medieval Japan, slated for

livan society's production of "The

Saturday night.
In 1954, Mizoglichi directed The
Crucified Lovers, Sunday's offer-
ing in which the young and beau-
tiful wife of a rich 18th century
printer becomes involved with
one of her husband's employes.
Social restraints and the brutal
reaction by court society forCe
the lovers to flee, but they are
finally captured and crucified.
The scenery is especially po-
etic - a foggy lake, glittering
water, distant mountains.
Westerners' avid interest in
Japan's exotic beauty, her tur-
bulent and exciting history, will
be ably satisfied by this year's
Kenji Mizoguchi Festival.

Key Largo (Fri.) - There are
enough stars in this picture to
keep you entertained indefinitely
-Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Lionel
Barrymore, Edward G. Robinson
-but don't expect too much from
the script.
John Huston directed and co-
authored with Richard Books this
1948 melodrana about a deport-
ed gangster on the lam (Robin-
son) who terrorizes a Florida
hotel with his buddies.
Claire Trevor won an Oscar
for her portrayal as the saucy
mistress of the paranoid Eddie
G., but it is Bacall who holds
the inexplicable attraction. She
convinces Bogie to rebel against
the forces of evil, which he does
because she is the widow of an
old wartime buddy.
Although a bit preachy, Key
Largo is still a lot of fun and
well worth the effort.
The Roaring 20's (Fri.) -A
fine tribute to the gangwar!
speakeasy era, Raoul Walsh's
1939 Masterpiece comes across
the screen as first-rate enter-
tainment, with fascinating char-
acterizations and brilliant ideas.
Bogart has a secondary role to
the electric James Cagney in a
tale concerned with the rise and
fall of two small tie hotshot
gangsters. Cagney has never
acted better, and this is one of
the few pictures Bogart was al-
lowed to die in once he became
big box-office.
There's never a dull moment
in Walsh's classic, and it's quite
thrilling to see Bogie plugged
full of hot lead.
To Have and Have Not (Sat.-
Sun.) - When Lauren Bacall
was 19, she landed a big part in

this film, and her leading man
fell in love with her - even
though he was married at the
time.
Caught in the middle of a shab-
by adaptation taken from Hem-
ingway's novel, the two act
beautifully together looking so
truly in love.
Directed in 1945 by Howard
Hawks, the story centers around
a sarcastic captain of a small
cabin cruiser working out of
Martinique shortly after the fall
of France. His courage is tested
when he's asked to smuggle a
Free French leader aboard his
ship.
Walter Brennan plays an af-
fectionate wino buddy to perfec-
tion but again it is Bacall who
outshines everyone in the cast.,
Casablanca (Sat.-Sun.) - This
is the definitive Bogart: the ro-
mantic lead: the subtle, soft-
spoken nightclub owner Rick,
who is tortured by his past and
trembles at the prospects of the
present.
As the hard - skinned - white-
jacketed - big shot, Bogie gives
his best performance on record.

War II movies. Closely Watched
Trains, a Czechoslovakian pro-
duction directed by Jiri Menzel,
is definitely one of them.
It seems almost impossible
that halfway normal life went on
in the Nazi-occupied countries,
bit, somehow, it did - people
did, for example, become old
enough to seek their first job.
This is what he see in Closely
Watched Trains - a basically
lazy boy who becomes an ap-
prentice train dispatcher at a
small station west of Prague.
Although the ending is one of
those standard explosion scenes
virtually required of every war
movie, for once it actually fits
in with the plot that surrounds
it - a light, yet quite serious
look at coming of age in the mid-
dle of war.

A star - studded winner of
countless Academy Awards. War,
revolution, intrigue and freez-

not quite as good as these, is still
one of Kelly's best.
It is noteworthy in th-At it is a
cinematic musicsl, not just a
iflmed version of the 1944 Broad-
way show from which it is adapt-
ed. Kelly (co-directing with Stan-
ley Donen) filmed much of it on
location in New York.
On the Town is a clever, live-
ly light musical about three sail-
ors (Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and
Jules Munshin) on a 24-hour
leave in New York.
The music is by Leonard
Bernstein, with lyrics by Betty
Comden and Adolph Green (Sing-
in' in the Rain). With Ann Miller
and Vera-Ellen.

Clockwork Orange
Campus
After seeing Clockwork Or-
ange, you'll never be able to lis-
ten to Beethoven's Ninth again
without getting flashes of Stan-
ley Kubrick's masterful study of
violence.
Kubrick's film, theoretically
set in the future, has elements of
science fiction - but, perhaps his
symphony of brutality is a logi-
cal extrapolation of the present.
Malcolm McDowell stars as
the hero - victim whose person-
allity requires that he round up
his "droogs" - fellow - aggres-
sors--and brutalize innocent peo-
ple in various ways.
Finally sent to jail for murder,
he is offered "salvation" if he

submits to the government's ex-
rrimental rehabilitation pro-
gram. E-merging somewhat less
than 'human, however, he faces
the film's bitter and thought-
provoking conclusion.

It is doubtful that any animat-
ed film will ever reach the ar-
tistic stature and fame that Fan-
tasia has. Who can ever forget
W a 1 t Disney's Mickey Mouse
starring as the harried .Sorcer-
er's Apprentice, pursued by live
mop poles? Or the great black,
yellow - eyed demon of A Night

Fantasia is the Disney artists'
epic conception of classical mu-
sic favorites such as Tchaikov-
sky's Nutcracker Suite - fantas-
tic visions indeed.

Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains,
Sydney Greenstreet and. Peter
Lorre are among the supporting
cast trapped in wartime Casa-
bllanca, waiting for a way out
before it is too late.
The film is. melodrama in top
form, with superb direction by
Michael Curtiz (1943) and a
smashing script by the Epstein
brothers and Howard Koch.
Many say this is one of the best
films ever made; it is certainly
among my choices for top twen-

ing cold weather surround this
Russian Love Story.
The screenplay has been ac-
curately described as tortuous,
but apparently millions of view-
ers have felt that love conquers
all. However, the stunning cine-
matography by Frederick Young
makes the film worth seeing. Ju-
lie Christie, Omar Sharif, Alec
Guiness, Geraldine Chaplin, Rod
Steiger.
