maniac, and wants to die when
she is 80. The movie begins to
r'rn down. Maude tells Harold
that to be too moral and too con-
cerned with death is to miss a lot
life has to offer. So she becomes
his apostle of Life and preaches
to him (and to the audience)
about how he must "L-I-V-E!"
about how life is so wonderful.
As she talks Cat Stevens is spew-
ing the same line on the sound
track. Then the camera takes us
on a lukewarm, worn out tour of
ebullient Life as we follow Harold
and Maude through an amuse-
ment park, watch them fall in
love and witness a fireworks
display with their arms around
each other.
The film becomes a lost ven-
ture when it decides to turn
morose humor into a touching
story of loverbetweentgenerations.
It loses more when the Affirma-
tion of Life sermon begins. Bud
Cort's earlier film, Brewster Mc-
Cloud, is much livlier because it
is an absolutely mad thing to
watch, and it never lets up on its
zany comedy. Which is also why
the National Lampoon is success-
ful when it isn't overly disgust-
ing.
-DAVID GRUBER
Funny Girl
Wayside
Funny Girl is a rather dismal

one-woman show. The film relies
on nothing more than Barbara
Streisand trying to wing it alone
and carry the whole movie with
her. The film is made from the
famous Broadway play with Bar-
bara Streisand playing the role
of Fanny Brice, a vaudeville
singer who is trying to make
good with the Ziegfield Follies.
She marries Nick Arnstein (Omar
Sharif), a special small-time
gangster. Sharif, totally miscast,
changes the entire point of the
character.
Almost every shot is held too
long, the action moves tediously
and myriads of pointless scenes
go on interminably. One keeps
hoping during the course of the
film that Streisand will pull it
off and at least account for a
viewable film, but nothing ever
really breaks. I'm sure that
Streisand is a gifted actress and
singer who is capable of making
good films in this genre, but this
film definitely doesn't provide it.

The Prosecution, in its opening
statement Wednesday, cited Hunt
and Liddy, another White H o u s e
aide, as central figures in t h e
case.
They were alleged to have con-
ducted electronic eavesdropping of
conversations at the Democratic
Party's headquarters and also
smuggled a spy into the political
headquarters of first Sen. Edmund
Muskie (D-Me.) and later Sen.
George McGovern (D-S.D.)
The prosecutor, Earl Silbert, said
that Liddy was hired by the Presi-
dent's re-election committee to
conduct legal intelligence gather-
ing operations during the e a r,l y
months of the presidential c a m-
paign last year, but that the poli-
tical intrigue which followed was
far outside the scope of his job.
For his work, Silbert said, Liddy
was paid $235,000 in 100 dollar bills.
Apart from Hunt, five of the ac-
cused have admitted being inside
Democratic Party Headquarters but
have denied criminal intent.
In other news, Senate. Democrats
unanimously named Sen. Sain Er-
vin (D.-N.C.) a former judge, to
head a major Senate investigation
into alleged political espionage and
sabotage by Republicans during the
1972 election campaign.
