o'clock Leon Redbone walked on stage
at the Ark Friday night and
brought an immediate laugh
from the audience by just say-
ing, "Good evening, everybody,"
.. .. in the characteristically strange
way for which he's known. Al-
though I missed the nautical
garb he wore during his last visit
here, he still wore shades, and
his songs were the same.
He began with an old Jimmy
Rodgers' song, "Looking Through
Old Love Letters," and told the
audience with his unique, I'm-
putting-you-all-on grin, that it
was his favorite song.
Redbone's voice sounds 1 i k e
the old 78's from which his songs
come - it's difficult to believe
the resemblance without hearing
him in person. He sings blues
and old popular tunes like "Mar-
='' : e" and "Beautiful Dreamer,"
all accompanied by his expert.
finger picking. He is, above all,
a really fine guitarist. Jimmy
Rodgers seems to be one of his
favorite songwriters - he men-
tioned that he knew many of
Rodger's songs and did, several
of them, including "T.B. Blues."
In spite of Redbone's obvious
talent, his first set was not as
exciting as it could have been.
There was a bit too much repeti-
tion in chord progressions, which
he himself commented on, but
more importantly, the m o o d
throughout the set was the same.
He seemed most of the time to
be in a very private state of

the old
mind, totally out of touch with
the audience. He played bits and
pieces on his guitar between
songs, as if he were letting it
take him wherever it would.
The second set was a marked
change. His rapport with the aud-
ience increased, and by the third
song it was apparent that he was
more into his material. He add-
ed a harmonica, which he plays
well, and for one song, "Come on
in my kitchen," he used the
bottleneck guitar. Possibly t h e
high point of the set was "Don't
Let It Bother You," one of his
livelier songs and an excellent
example of his fine guitar work.
The audience responded enthus-
iastically and continued to do so,
and Redbone's own enjoyment
was apparent. This mood and the
high quality of his music lasted
for the remainder of the eve-
ning.
There were also humorous mo-,
ments during the performance.
Some of the blues Leon sang
could be taken either with amuse-
ment or great seriousness, but
the way he did them, straight-
forward and without any at-
tempts at humor, made them in-
variably funny. "Mother, t h e
Queen of My Heart," about a
man who gives up playing cards
after turning over his cards to
see his mother's face reminding
him of her deathbed plea not to
gamble, brought a lot of laugh-
ter from the audience. Leon is
known for being somewhat of a
character and probably a large

78s
part of the audience came to see
someone they had heard describ-
ed more in terms of a novelty act
than a serious performer. I was
glad to see, though, that while
there were the usual in-character
remarks and laughs that I can
only describe as Mephistophel-
ean, Redbone did not play up his
bizarre quality nearly as much
as the last time, he was here,
and his considerable talent and
musicianship came huch more
to the forefront.

By WILLIAM MITCHELL
My home town newspaper al-
ways makes one remark at the
end of its movie critiques - a
one-liner that goes something
like: "If you are an Elliot Gould
fan you'll love this movie" or
"If you like violence this movie
is for you." Hickey and Boggs
might easily fall into this cliche
-in , other words, "if you liked
the old TV series I Spy you'll
love this film" - except some-
how there's more to it than that.
True enough it does star Ro-
bert Culp and Bill Cosby a n d
they are detectives, but there
ends any similarity with their old
TV series. Where they were once
internationally suave super
sleuths moving briskly along on
wine, women, and money, they
are now Los Angeles bound,
third-rate private detectives who
drink beer, are divorced, and are
perhaps, a better description,
definitely destitute. Seedy is,
perhaps, a better description.
Forest fires barn
more than trees
-.

Along comes a limp-wristed
gentleman who offers them em-
ployment and a considerable
amount of money if they will lo-
cate his girlfriend for him ("A
switch-hitting sweet lips?" in-
ciires Culn) and they're o f f .
They soon discover that this "girl-
friend" has a suitcase full of
stolen money that a lot of other
people would like to get their
hands on, including several un-
derworld organizations, the, L.A.
Police Force, and Hickey a n d
Boggs, who are in it for t h e
$25,000 reward, you see. Beyond
that, the plot turns out to be as
elnsi! e as the girlfriend. B u t
don't worry. The rather nebulous
story line is not nearly so im-
portant in this movie as t h e
action and the characterizations,
both of which are well done and
plentiful.
When the underworld organiza-
tion starts looking for the girl-
friend and the suitcase, t h e y
don't mess around. They call out
the "troops" (or "torpedoes"), in
this case, three goons who seem
to have an uncanny ability to be
in the same place at the same
time as Hickey and Boggs. Af-
ter a few encounters, the torpe-
does deside to eliminate the com-
petition. Their methods are di-
rect - high powered machine
guns imaginatively mounted on
the rear deck of a station wagon.
Hickey and Boggs are armed
with pistols, also apparently high
powered since they invariably
hold their guns with both hands,
but they obviously feel a little
shooting at people - Culp, in
fact, closes his eyes to pull the
trigger. However, everyone is
usually a poor shot, so b o t h
sides expend a lot of ammuni-
tion shooting up the scenery in

spectacular fashion. It is by
no means dull stuff.
Cosby and Culp both turn in
fine performances as the two
downtrodden detectives. T h e y
manage to portray weary, burnt
out men with remarkable ac-
curacy, conveying a keen sense'
of "the glory that was" - their
clothes are several years out of'
style, they drive a beat-up Thun-
derbird, and they eat most of
their meals in a chili burger
stand. Somehow you know that
life was not always this grim.
The famous Cosby-Culp rapport
and repartee is still there, but
it seems a little deflated, as if
their sense of humor is the only
thing _ keeping Hickey and Boggs
from going completely insane. It
would not be hard to do.
There is a third character
worth mentioning, and that is the
city of Los Angeles itself, rot-
ting in the hot California sun-
shine, so decayed it seems ready
to fall into the ocean of its own
accord. And it is filmed in colbr,
which heightens the illusion of
pervasive gangrene. There is one
particularly fine scene in an of-
fice building where the L.A. smog
is compounded by yellow plastic
shades at the windows to give a
truly jaundiced effect.
Robert Culp also directed the
picture, and one would have to
say that, all in all, it works very
well in the genre of detective
film, thanks to the stark realism
with which he has infused every
element of the movie. It is sus-
penseful, well-performed, a n d
even a little disturbing at times.
I must admit quite frankly that
when I went to see Hickey and
Boggs I was prepared to watch a
rehashing of the old I Spy
scripts. But I was pleasantly sur-
prised.
