of every show she was ever in.
This sort of intimate detail is
considered important.
Stage books, which deal with
the behind - the - scenes milieu,
are vastly unimportant books.
Deprived of significance, they
have a duty to be entertaining
or they have no reason to exist.
This book fails in every quali-
fication.
Some books are even enjoy-
able because they are so bad.
But this kind of stupidity em-
barrasses rather than enter-
tains. The only nostalgic and
enjoyable chapter deals with
her association with that mas-
ter of the Broadway musical
Cole Porter. And the title of the
book betrays something the
witty, acerbic Porter never in-
tended:
My Heart Belongs.
You bet it does. To the pub-
lisher.
ARTHRITIS DATABANK
IS STARTED
STANFORD, Calif. (P) - A
NorthaAmerican databankof
facts about thousands of arth-
ritis patients has been estab-
lished among eight medical
centers throughout Canada and
the United States.
The pilot project for the
American Rheumatism Associ-
ation Medical Information Sys-
tem is being funded by an
$854,000 three-year grant from
the National Bureau for Health
Services Research. Dr. James
Fries, assistant professor of
medicine at Stanford School of
Medicine, where central com-
puting facilities will be, be-
lieves it will benefit both pa-
tients and physicians. It will tell
physicians what has happened
to patients after they have re-
ceived specific kinds of treat-
ment.

MM's 'Peter Pan':
A show for the kids

though their choreography was
precise enough, it was poorly-
timed as comedy and often tedi-
ous as Indian footwjrk. They
were altogether uninspired.
Of course, there is music,
plenty of it. The myriad songs
were accompanied simply but
adequately by Lynda Hamilton
and Terry Stombaugh. They
were wisely brought into the
show, contributing sets (as a
bed) and laughs, in addition to
piano and percussion.
Not to be left unmentioned is
the consistently versatile and
crowd-pleasing Kathy Badgerow.
Playing three or four very dif-
ferently personified members of
the animal world, her work was
well-motivated and truly enter-
taining. Her crocodile looked
hungry enough to be scraping
our plates. Fortunately, she in-
stead carried Captain Hook off
into a sea of applause, leaving
our desserts for ourselves.
Which brings us to dinner, a
most important element in any
dinner theatre. The food was
good .and plentiful. And don't
worry, oldsters, there's more
than milk up at the.ebar, al-
though minors are limited strict-
ly to soft beverages.

Sweetly enough, each plate
was accompanied by a bag of
flavored sugar to drive your
sugar count wild. Cinnamon
coffee gratefully accompanies
the sweetness of a show like
Peter Pan.
As "Family Dinner Theatre,"
I wonder if the dinner wasn't too
elaborate or too late for the
kids. My guarantee, however, is
that none of the kids are going
to drop off the sleep, and they
are so hooked on the activity
before them, they won't even
bug you for another tart. And
if they spill their water, it's all
part of the fun.
This show has some weakness-
es, which can be overlooked,
and some problems in concept,
covered over by energy on the
part of the actors. With good
food under your belt, and the
lovely little ones quiet for a
change, these flaws are easily
borne.
If only Tink hadn't been so
stuck in that jug. Peter Pan
needed that freedom of move-
ment to make it more than a
good substitute for a baby-sitter.

FRIDAY, MAY 21
THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD
(Michael Curtiz and William Keishly, 1938)
MLB 3-7 & 9
Arguably the most enjoyable film ver made, it is that rare
movie in which everything comes together: the brisk direction,
the delightful character acting, the wonderful technicolor,
Korngold's sumptuous score, de Havilland's purity, Rathbone's
vilany; there aren't enough adjectives to properly describe this
picture. Above all, it is Flynn who makes ROBIN, HOOD the
exhilarating experience that it is; in his finest performance he
created a screen character that will never die.
THE CONFESSION
(Costa Garvras, 1970) MLB 4-7 ONLY
An -exact step-by-step demonstration of how the Communists at
the Stalinist "show trials" were made to confess to imaginary
crimes. A great, neglected movie subject inteligenly presented.
THE CONFESSION was Costa Gamras' triumphant follow-up to
Z. Yves Montand, Simone Signoret. French, English subtitles.
THE CONFORMIST
(Bercardo Bertolucci, 1970) MLB 4-9:30 ONLY
One of, if not the, most beautiful films ever made. The story of
a fascist in Italy during ww II who loses the one thing he really
values because he hasn't the courage to save it. Jean-Louis
Trintignant, Dominique Sanda. Italian, English subtitles.
