Tonight's best bet:
Ann Arzor Film Co-op
Aud. A, 7, 9
This 1971 film from Joseph
losey isn't a bad flick once di-
rector Joseph Losey gets past
some first reel jitters. In fact,
if only the original L. P. Hart-
ley novel had been better, this
could have been one hell of a
HaroldtPinter did an admir-
able if stilted job with the
screenplay, given the hollow-
ness of the Hartley book. Lo-
sey's direction, basically, is
nothing short of impeccable.
All, however, seems strangely
in vain. Frankly,this almost
trite story of a rich socialite
(played well by Julie Christie)
who takes advantage of the ado-
leicent crush of a 13-year-old
boy (Dominic Guard, who will
impress you) to carry on an af-
fair with a poor farmer (de-
pendable Alan Bates) just
strikes me as a waste of time
and superb talent.
Harold and Maude
New World Film Co-op
MLB Aud. 3, 7:30
There's nothing like a good,
weird film to brighten up the
day, and Hrold and Maude is
iist that. Who would ever think
that a film about a young boy
(played by Bud Cort) and an el-
derly I-dy (Ruth Gordon) who
share licorice at a funeral
could be a soccessfol motion
picture? Yet, somehow, this is.
