Dog Day Afternoon - (Fox
Village - Sidney Lumet's 'film
about an actual bungled bank
robbery strikes a very tenuous
balance between farce and trag-
edy. But the electric perform-
ance by Al Pacino as the ex-
hibitionistic "brains" of the rob-
bery and John Cazale as his
silent, psychotic sidekick make
this a better film than it de-
serves to be. **
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's
Nest, The Hindenburg & The'
Sunshine Boys - (The Movies,
Briarwood) - Beginning of a
blockbuster month at Briarwood
(Barry Lyndon is due in another
week or so). The Hindenburg
and The Sunshine Boys are un-
previewed at this time, butI
probably a good bet for the
theater's (presumably) one dol-
lar daytime price. As for One
Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest,
the most awaited film in years
emerges as an earnest, osten-
sibly faithful re-creation of the:
novel, but somehow manages to,
reverse the book's philosophicall
point almost completely.
Romeo and Juliet - (Michi-
gan) - Shakespeare puristsz
howled with rage when Franco
Zefferelli's film was released:
Imagine, having 15 and 17-year-
old kids play the parts of 15'
and 17-year-old kids! Well;
here's one instance where the
public has it all over the elit-
ists; Romeo and Juliet is the
greatest love story to date on
film, something millions of mov-
iegoers know'even if most lit
professors don't.,**

- filmly based in logical plots,f

gift for gags. Leave the nihil-

Marnie - (Cinema Guild,
Arch. Aud., 7 & 9:05) - Al-
fred Hitchcock's last really
first-rate film was unaccount-
ably blasted by the critics when
it came out, perhaps due to
the marginal thespian abilities
of star Tippi Hedren. The story
involves a beautiful kleptomani-
ac (Hedren) and a wealthy book
publisher (Sean Connery) who
coerces her into marriage, then
uses Freudien techniques to dis-
cover the root of her klepto-
mania and her corresponding
terror of men. That's essen-
tially all there is to the plot,
but Hitchcock spins his direc-
tor's web so skillfully that you
don't realize it; the film seems
as complex and suspenseful as
the tautistxmurder and intrigue
thriller. One of Bernard Herr-
mann's best musical scores aids
considerably towards this end.
Greetings - (Cinema II, Ang.
Aud. A, 7 & 9 - Early 1969
Brian De Palma satire contains
a fair share of -dated images
(LBJ, evade-the-draft, computer
dating) but still merits atten-
tion as one of the most un-
pompous spoofs ever produced.
Even the greatest satires usu-
ally contain a certain air of
self-inflated superiority, an ele-
ment totally absent in Greet-
ings. De Palma has a charming-
ly disarming style that seems
to say "Kick me" along with
everyone else - but not too
hard. A gentle, funny film which
is standing the test of time and
taste extremely well. ***
Horsefeathers - (Couzens
Cafeteria, 8 & 10) - The Marx
Brothers utterly destroy the
American university. Not their
best film, but probably their
funniest. Groucho's anatomy
lecture ranks among the lunatic'
interludes of all comedy. ****
Young Frankenstein - (Medi-
atrics, Nat. Sci. Aud., 7:30 &
9:30) - Mel Brooks' best film,
due to its solid, cohesive story
line. It seems that the more
chaotic Woody Allen's films are,
the more successful (Bananas),
while the opposite is true of
Brooks - Young Frankenstein
and The Twelve Chairs standing
superior to the more anarchistic
Blazing Saddles and The Pro-
ducers. I think Brooks' true
genius lies in comic narrative
