The Exorcist
The Movies, Brlarwood
Director William Friedkin
(French Connection) has said
that this movie was intended to
scare people. It is the story of
how a little girl (Linda Blair)
becomes possessed by the Devil.
The little girl masturbates
with a crucifix, turns her head
all the way around, and swears

a la Jack Nicholson.

Dumbo
New World, Nat. Sci. Aud.
Sat., 7:30, 9:30
Walt Disney made Dumbo
(1941) right after Fantasia and
just before Bambi. Along with
Snow White, Dumbo is one of
the nicest feature-length Disney
"irnation films.
Dumbo is an elephant who
runs away because his ears are
too big. (This may sound ridi-
culous, but imagine how whack-
ed out the writers must h a v e
been to come up with a color
motion picture about this kind of
thing.)
The film is a lot of fun, and
at times is pretty funny as well.
If you have kids - or even
plan to have any - don't miss
it. Refreshing changes are al-
ways a barrel of laughs.

Rebel Without
A Cause
Cinema Guild, Arch. Aud.
Sat., 7:30, 9:30
-In Rebel Without A Cause
(1955), it's easy to see the
James Dean magic at work -
without him, this picture would
have gone absolutely nowhere.
With him, from the very first
minute he appears on screen as
the misunderstood new-boy-in-
town'with-the-trouibled-past, the
movie shoots to the moon and
back in a matter of seconds as
the Dean mystique makes its
way through even the most mun-
dane screenwriting.
It's an old story - the high
school knife fights, the c a r
races, the girlfriend of the
gang leader who loves him, but
James Dean puts in a new ele-
ment: reality. When the troub-
led Dean approaches his father,
embracing him, trying only to
communicate - it's as if we are
viewing a privileged moment,
something out of "real life".

East of Eden
Cinema Guild, Arch. Aud.
Fri., 7:30, 9:30
James Dean was simply one
of the finest actors Hollywood
ever produced, though his ca-
reer was short-lived due to a
tragic automobile accident that
took his life in September of
1955. Dean's very first picture
was East of Eden (1954), but
you'll find that hard to believe
when you watch this profession-
