All week long
COMMERCIAL CINEMA
Bluebird - (The Movies,
Briar vood) - Much - ballyhoo-
edL U. C. - Russian producion of
Maeterlink's fairy tale-play,
with Elizabeth Taylor, Jane
Fonda and other notables.
The Missouri Breaks - The
superstar pairing of Jack Nich-
olson as a noble outlaw and
Mailon Brando as a psychotic
killer hired to track him down
is about the only thing this
muddled, meandering Western
has ging for it, and it's not
enough. Director Arthur Penn
presents us with a series of
stunningly gorgeous visuals and
then proceeds to do absolutely
nothing with them; the firm
just rambles along, often inco-
herently and never compelling-
ly - a pistache about one third
Altman, one third Peckinpah
and three thirds tedium. Bran-
do'sdeterminedly weird por-
trayal of the brilliant, half-
mad "regulator" provides some
sparks of life to the still-born
proceedings, but his character-
ization has relatively little to
do with the general tone of the
film. and seems more an exer-
cise in self-indulgence; and the
script provides precious few
scenes for he and Nicholson to
play against each other. Sad-
dest of all is the borderline hack
job turned in by Arthur Penn
-once considered the brightest
and most original of American
direcors, but now seemingly
lost and wandering in an artis-
tical wilderness not even his
own **
Goodbye, Norma Jean - (The
Movies, Briarwood) - The lat-
est biographical offering on
poor Marilyn Monroe; all vul-
tures are cordially invited to
attend.
Sparkle - (State) - Semi-
musical which purportedly is a
thinly disguised biography of
the Supremes.
All the President's Men -
(The Movies, Briarwood)-Less
a specific chronicle of Nixon's
downfall than a precise and
remarkably absorbing look at
the step-by-step journalistic de-

tective work that undid him-
and in the process probably
saved us as a nation. ****
T h e Romantic English-
woman - (Fifth Forum) -
The awesome directorial tal-
ents of Joseph Losey are wast-
ed on this foolish soap opera
triangle involving a wealthy
British couple (Glenda Jack-
son and Michael Caine) and a
criminal fugitive (Helmut Ber-
ger) A poorly - acted pseudo-
Pinteresque slapdash that is al-
most worth seeing for Losey's
visuals alone - but not quite."
Story of 0 - (Campus) -
This French cinemazation of
the famous porno bestseller wa-
te-s down the domination tone
and much of the violence of the
whips - and - chains original,
emerging as a splashy, bauzy
love story that suffers not so
much from moral depravity as
from dullness. **

American Graffiti - (Fox
Villge) - The death of the
Age of Innocence, seen through
ch ? incredibly sensitive eyes of
George Lucas. One of the most
thoroughly enjoyable films ev-
er made, and ultimately also
one o fthe saddest. ****
Friday
CINEMA
And Now For Something
Completely Different - (Ann
Arbor Film Co-op, MLB 3, 7,
8:45, 10) - Filmer collection
ofT Monty Python skits which
bombed out when released in
the U. S. several years ago, but
no's being recirculated due to
the group's newfound TV fame.
Unfortunately, belated success
does not automatically sancti-
fy a failed original, and this

HOWARD HAWKS' 1941
BALL OF FIRE
Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck star in this hilarious tale of a linguist
who is attracted by the colorful slang of a beautiful singer. A comedy of
language and human relations that stands as one of the most realistic and
telling looks at American culture ever put on film.

SUL LIVAN'S TRAVELS
Sullivan is a successful director of lioht-hearted Hollywood comedies, who begins to wonder if
he shouldn't instead be making films about the real lives of real people. But, sheltered as he
is by his mone and position, Sullivan has no idea who the real people are or what they're
really like. To find out, he travels through the seamier parts of America, with comic and
often startlina results. An excellent social comedy in the Caprs style, starrinq Joel McCrea.
