Jeff Johnson (left) and Tony Cecere (right) serinade the Diag this week with French horn duet
favorites. Their music can be heard floating through the Diag on sunny days this spring.

(Continued from Psge 5)
cism be brushed aside with the
alibi that this flick is science
fiction: the foundations of sci-
ence fiction - imaginative
speculation, alien-ness, removal
in space and or time-are no-
where to be found. That the
film is set in a future century is
irrelevant: it could just as well
have been set in 13th century
China, 18th century Ireland
(remember A Modest Propos-
al?), or 20th century
(fill inryotr favorite continent).
For a filmmaker who has
been called visionary, Boor-
man's visions seem limited to
two: one of barbarian feudal-
ism, and one of technocratic
feudalism. Space limits me to
just one comment on Boor-
man's perception of a society
where women are whole and
strong: paranoia strikes deep.
Save your money.
-Marnie Heyn
The Sting
The fascinating aspects of The
Sting are limitless: you could
spend days trying to figure out
what makes this film so success-
ful and never come up with the
right answer because there is
none. The movie is utterly de-
void of cinematic talent and
completely claustrophobic.
The screenplay by David Ward
is strictly third-rate stuff -
most of the "plot tricks" a r e
about as hard to figure out as a
three letter crossword puzzle.
Stars Paul Newman and Rob-
ert Redford smile, sweat, swear
and swing a lot, but you know
underneath- it all they're just
bluffing until the paychecks are
cashed and the percentage man-
ey starts rolling in.

Glass Menagerie
Gay Liberation, MLB 3
Fri., Sat., 8
The Glass Menagerie is an
emotionally - charged - Tennes-
see Williams-deluxe full of real
people and real feelings. This
version, originally produced for
television last season, is far and
away the best adaptation of the
famous Broadway and Holly-
wood melodrama.
On the screen in 1950, Kirk
Douglas was the gentleman
caller who changed the lives-
briefly-of a fragile mother and
her two "marvelous children."
In this production, 1974 Tony-
Award winner Michael Moriar-
ity plays the shy caller with
more believability than Douglas
could ever hope to generate.
Sam Waterston, who plays Nick
Carraway in this year's Great

Gatsby, gives a fine perform-
ance as the overprotected son
who skips out to a movie every
time his mother goes on an
emotive binge full of worry and
Waterston's narration provides
the structure for this excellent
TV movie which features an out-
standing Katherine Hepburn in
her latest and what many have
now called her greatest role.
As the lonesome Southern belle
with her cracky voice and age-
less smile, Hepburn will leave
you totally breathless.

Philadelphia Story

The Philadelphia Story (1940)
is probably one of the funniest
and best loved Katherine Hep-
burn comedies ever made.

ald Ogden Stewart from the suc-
cessful Broadway play by Philip

Cary Grant
Barry, Philadelphia is a fancy
tale concerning the idle rich and
their idle brains-Hepburn, a
spoiled snob separated from
hubbie Cary Grant for over two
years, finds herself close to an-
other wedding day and not
exactly sure she wants to go
through it all over again.
The love of her current life
(Roland Young, with .hat never-
ending waxy smile and wavy
hair) is a total sap, so she falls
for a reporter covering the big
matrimonial celebration (James
Stewart) in typical Hepburn
fashion: they get drunk and
Kate swoons.
As the wedding day approach-
es, Kate finds herself in love
with not one but three different
men. Whom she will choose-
Cary, Jimmie or Roland-is half
the fun; the other half is con-
tained in an absolutely top-
notch supporting cast that in-
cludes Ruth Hussey, John Hal-
liday, Mary Nash, Virginia
Weidler and Henry Daniell.
