Job outlook improves
for college graduates
BETHLEHEM, Pa. (A) - Things are a little rosier for today's
college grads, with hiring reported up for the first time in three
years, the College Placement Council reports.
But despite the job improvement - a six per cent increase over
a year ago with teachers omitted from the survey - employment
prospects were described as still "mighty tight" by the council.
Positions remain down from 1969 when available jobs were
nearly twice as plentiful.
Based on the number hired, the council said college students
found the greatest number of openings in merchandising; federal,
state and local governments; public accounting; and chemicals and

International Shakespeare Cinema Festival


Akira Kurosawa's
with Toshiro Mifune
THRONE OF BLOOD is the most acclaimed of Kurosawa's ver-
sions of Western literary and dramatic classics adapted to Jap-
anese settings (the others are THE LOWER DEPTHS and THE
IDIOT). This action-packed version of Shakespeare's MACBETH
is set in 16th century Japan during the Sengoku civil wars. As in
Kurosawa's other period films, he goes beyond the normal limits
of the genre, betraying neither Shakespeare nor the Japanese
milieu in which the play is set. Kurosawa's "Macbeth", as play-
ed by Torshiro Mifune, is no ordinary villian, "too full of the
milk of human kindness." Instead, he is seen as a simple soldier,
as physical as his horse, full of exuberance and fire. His "Lady
Macbeth" is played by- Isuzu Yamada, the fiendish landlady of
THE LOWER DEPTHS. Masaru Sato's music is a creative blend
of classic Noh music and Western musical forms.
"No doubt about it now: Japan's Akira Kurosawa must be num-
bered with Sergei Eisenstein and D. W. Griffith among the su-
preme creators of cinema .. (THRONE OF BLOOD) is a
nearve-shattering spectacle of physical and metaphysical vio-
lence, quite the most brilliant and original attempt ever made
to put Shakespeare in pictures . . . Toshiro Mifune (the star of
both RASHOMON and SEVEN SAMURAI) . . . is surely the
most prodigiously cinematic actor since Doug Fairbanks . . The
structure of the film is stark but never static: Kurosawa impels
his drama with demonic drive. From its first frenzied episode of
plunging stallions and roaring knights, the film hurtles doom-
ward lie a gr at bloc oulde flung fro a catapult. The
spectator scarcely has time to realize, as the images deafen and
the noises decorate his imagination, that he is experiencing
effects of cinema seldo matchedineir headlong masculine
power of imagination." --Time
