A death

By WENDY GOODMAN
I T'S DIFFICULT to believe that
nothing has been written in this
paper about the death of Melvina
Reynolds. A folksinger with a political
conscience and a feminist before her
time, Reynolds, in her mid-70s, passed
away two weeks ago. I, for one, am
deeply grieved.
Reynolds, who didn't start writing
until she was fifty years old, was best
known for her song "Little Boxes,"
which has been recorded by such
folksinging greats as Pete Seeger and
Victor Jara.
Some of her tunes, like "We Don't
Need the Men," are said to have been
made up on the spur of the moment in
front of an audience:
", e and niedt II, lot-I'n .
0g. toI6ilnuard in 1i1nnjhnve .
Why is it that a-woman like this could
leave unnoticed? Perhaps it is a sign of
the alleged "growing apathy" of the
seventies, or perhaps it is because
Reynolds was involved in a struggle;
she used her songs to enlighten and
educate, not just to make a buck.

Friday, April 7
HAROLD AND MAUDE
(Hal Ashby, 1971) 7 and 10:20-MLB3
A charming love story of a necrophiliac teenager and an 80-year-old lady.
Their meeting and their romance is a lovely modern fairy tale set aglow by
some sharp, fresh jabs at motherhood, the military, psychiatry, and com-
puter dating. Music by Cat Stevens. A cult film that people see five or six
times. RUTH GORDON, BUD CORT, VIVIAN PICKLES.
WHERE'A POPPA?
(Carl Reiner, 1970) 8:40 only-MLB 3
Two brothers (GEORGE SEGAL and RON LEIBMAN) promise their dying
father they won't put their mother (RUTH GORDON) into an old age home
and become stuck with this senile psychopath. A marvelous satire on mother
love, exhilaratingly directed by Reiner, and a beautiful comic performance by
Segal, "the best light comedian in American movies."-Pauline Kael.
Tomorrow: Zeffirelli's ROMEO AND JULIET

EXPRESSIONS-
THE TALKOFANN ARBOR

Sonny Rollins, long recognized
as one of the all-time titans of
the tenor sax, continues to be
a questing, exploring, ever-
young and always-changing
artist.
Easy Living comes as
close as possible to pre-
senting the many facets of
today's Rollins-from the
beauty of the title tune to
the beat of Stevie
Wonder's "Isn't She
Lovely," with super-
assistance from players
like George Duke, Tony
Williams, Paul Jackson.
