All Week
COMMERCIAL CINEMA
The Hazing (Campus) An el cheapo.
production that chronicles a fraternity
hzing gone nightmare. Awfully
bad. *1/2
-Flesh Gordon and The Groove Tube
(State) Flesh Gordon is neither very in-
ventive nor very pornographic. Its
kIggest similarity to the original Flash
Gordon is the size of the budget. The
Cjroove Tube is an uneven, scatological -
stirization of television, with then un-
known Chevy Chase. **/2
Another Man, Another Chance (Mich-
igan) Unseen by this reviewer, this new
ftlm by Claude Chabrol of French New
Wave Fame appears to be some sort of
sestern. With James Caan.
Heroes (Fifth Forum) Quite simply,
5 vehicle for Henry Winkler, and
tothing more. *1
Darby O'Gill and the Little People
(Fox Village) A sachirrene-injected

kid's' flick from the Disney assembly
line. Steer clear.
Star Wars (Briarwood) George
Lucas' labor of love is nothing less than
a total success. With spectacular spe-
cial effects and great non-acting per-
formances. ****
Looking For Mr. Goodbar (Briar-
wood) Not nearly the film it could have
been. Richard Brooks' laborious direc-
tion makes this a heavy-handed,
"meaning"-laden production, and he
lays the superficial insight on thick; the
kind of film you wouldn't ever want to
sit through again. Diane Keaton is ex-
cellent though. **1/2
Bobby Deerfield (Briarwood)
Lethargic, go-nowhere story of an emo-
tionally frigid race-car driver (Al Pa-
cino) who learns to loosen up via his
terminally-ill girlfriend (Marthe
Keller). **1/2
Oh, God! (Briarwood) Joke: God
(George Burns) takes the witness
stand, promising to tell the truth "so
help me, Me." If that isn't warning
enough, let me just say that the above is
one of the best jokes in the film. *1/2

CINEMA
Murder She Said and Murder Most
Foul (MLB 3, 7:00 and 8:40, respective-
ly) Agatha Christie's Miss Marple is
portrayed by Margaret Rutherford
with great warmth and wit in these
decent comedies. Both directed by
George Pollock. ***
Reefer Madness (MLB 3, 10:20) The
high campiness of this early-1900s anti-
marijuana film is fun for about five
minutes; unfortunately, the film's a lot
longer than that, and it gets mighty
tedious. **
The Big Sleep (Old A&D, 7:00 and
9:05) Adapted from ' the Raymond
Chandler novel and directed by Howard
Hawks, this incredibly complex thriller
is one of the classic Bogart-Bacall
flicks. ***%
Rebel Without a Cause (Angell Aud
A, 7:00 and 9:00) The one and only
James Dean takes on the world in
Nicholas Ray's classic story of teen-age

desperation. With NatalieWood. ***%/2
Bad News Bears (7:30 and 9:30) This
story of a kids baseball team stars
Tatum O'Neal and is occasionally fun-
ny. Bring your kid sister. **/z

TONIGHT! Friday, December 2
MISS MARPLE NIGHT
In the 60's, Agatha Christie's detective Miss Marple was transformed on
the screen by Margaret Rutherford in a series of comic gems. Ruther-
ford's Marple-far from the sedentary, prim, old maid of Christie-
became an energetic, daring, and-ingenious adventurer-an old lady who
seemed both to have done it all as a Girl Guide and to have retained
her stamina and enthusiasm for doing it all over again. With her sidekick
Mr. Stringer (an extremely mild-mannered sort, elated and horrified at the
thought of great deeds), she stalked a host of friends like a bassett
hound on benzedrine. The kind of movie the British do best-literate,
highly entertaining, with superb performances.
MURDER SHE SAID
(George Pollock, 1962) 7 only-MLB 3
On her way home, Miss Marple sees a girl being strangled on a passing train,
and in no time flat the old snoop is a "maid" at nearby Ackenthorpe
Hall, loaded to the eaves with suspects. Nawsty bunch, too, which doesn't
stop her from unmasking a killer. It's an Agatha Christie special,
sprinkled with the whodonit queen's matchless red herrings and dominated,
start to finish, by the grand comic sweep and rubber-faced sparkle of
Margaret Rutherford and a frightfully apt cost.-
MURDER MOST FOUL
(George Pollock, 1964) 5:40 ONLY-MLB 3
A murderer lurks in a second-rate travelling actors' troupe, and an incognito
Miss Marple joins the company to expose the killer's identity. Rutherford's
audition, an outrageous reading of "The Shooting of Dan McGrew," is a lesson
in the demanding art of high comedy. With Ron Moody, Stringer Davis.
REEFER MADNESS
(Leo Gasnier, 1936) 10:20 only-MLB 3
Originally titled "Tell Your Children," this anti-marijuana propaganda film
seen today is a hilarious camp comedy. The weed is described as "the
new drug menace which is destroying the Youth of America!"

A presentation of electronic music tomorrow night in Rackha'm Auditorium
at 8 p.m. will feature student compositions with simultaneous dancing (above),
and one film. It's bound to be stimulating.

Against All (MLB 3, 7:00 and 9:00) An
absolutely superb film. Werner Herzog
based this 1975 effort on the Kasper
Hauser legend, in which a young man
appeared in a small German town with
no memory or knowledge. At once com-
passionate and deeply disturbing.
Every Man for Himself offers a splen-
did performance by Bruno S. who as the
innocent, child-like Kasper, is nothing
short of brilliant. ***'9
Clair's Knee (Old A&D, 7:00 and 9:05)
An oddly compelling film by Eric Roh-
mer, about a suave young diplomat who
becomes infatuated with a young wom-
an's knee. *** '
Dirty Harry (Angell Aud A, 7:00 and
9:00) Clint Eastwood wields his metal
phallus in this, the best of the Dirty
Harry series. Directed by Don
Siegel. **1/2
All the President's Men (Nat Sci Aud,
7:00 and 9:30) A neat romanticization of
the Woodward-Bernstein saga. Hoff-
man and Redford go scampering about
a nicely-photographed Washington in
search of THE TRUTH. Well-directed,
with fine performances. All in all, one
helluva good movie.*

REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE
Director-NICHOLAS RAY (1955)
Ray's vivid portrait of teenage frustration and rebellion in the 50's is his best
known film. JAMES DEAN'S sensitive performance did much to create his
tragic image, which has become legend. NATALIE WOOD'S "girl-next-door" and
SAL MINEO'S psychotic side-kick round out the trio. Insightful and thought
provoking, this film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture.
