farce explores the evils of television.
Tight, funny, but only arguably suc-_
cessful as a philisophical indictment of

terrific performances by Peter Finch,
William Holden, Faye Dunaway and
Robert Duvall. ***1/
Buster Keaton Night (Old A & D, 8:00

length film The General. Taking place

THE TALL BLOND MAN
WITH ONE BLACK SHOE
(Yves Robert, 1975< 7 IO:15-MLS 3
Buggings, break-ins and surveillance are the objects of timely satire in this
hilarious farce. A young violinist unknowingly becomes the decoy in a cut-
throat battle between political spies. They turn his life into total -mayhem,
but the tall blond man remains a naive and lovable modern-day Buster
Keaton, as he narrowly escapes peril at every turn. "This is one of the
funniest movies within recent memory.,Its so crammed with funny moments
it's impossible to pick a favorite."-L.A. TIMES. PIERRE RICHARD, MIRIELLE

SILENT RUNNING -
In a film that foreshadowed STAR WARS by five years and captured some of
its appeal, Bruce Dern gives a fine performance of a space botanist, Lowell
Freeman, who is obsessed with his cargo of plant specimens from defoliated
Earth. Dern alternates between desperation and dedication but is upstaged
somewhat by his, mechanical co-stars. Director Trumbell was responsible for
many of the special effects in 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.
