TONIGHT: HORROR IN MLB
(7 & 10:30)
Does this film really need a blurb? Often cited as the most
frightening film ever made, PSYCHO tells of a secretary who
absconds with $40,000 and comes upon a lonely motel near a
gothic house inhabited by a strange young man and his pos-
sessive mother. Need we continue? will you ever shower
again? If you've only seen it on TV, you've never really seen
it! Chilling music by Bernard Herrman (CITIZEN CANE,
TAXI DRIVER). Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, Vera Miles.
LE BOUCHER (The Butcher)
A butcher returns to his home after a decade in the army.
He meets and falls in, love with a schoolmistress and then
brutal knife murders begin to plague the countryside. Brilliant
and stylish study of the dark side of human nature, Stephane
Audran turns in her usual stunning performance. "Alfred

EUMIR DEODOTO is an art-
ist in decline. Several years
ago, his jazzy rendition of "The
Theme From 2001" was an en-
joyable hit, and the follow-up
album, Deodato II, contained
fascinating rearrangements of
"Rhapsody in Blue" and "Nights
in White Satin," as well as
some exciting original music.
But ever since he switched
labels from CTI to MCA, los-
ing producer Creed Taylor in
the process, Deodato's music
has come more and more to'
sound like sophisticated muzak.
In that respect, his new album,
Very Together (MCA-2219), is
his worst effort to date.
Deodato appears to be bog-

DEODATO has included five
originals. With the exception of
"Univac Loves You," all are

fortunately, they just don't go
anywhere. "Univac Loves You"
is a pleasant slow piece that
uses "Holiday Inn Room Keys"
One can only hope that Deo-
dato rediscovers the magic that
graced his earlier music. He
may be making these albums
too quickly. This one sounds I
as if it could have been writ-
