through the tenuous shield of
the rich, but drawing inexorab-
ly nearer to them. Shirley Mac-
Laine and Kenneth Mars, bet-
ter kknown for their comedy
role sare stunning in their per-
ceptive interpretation of the
uptight couple, with a support-
ing cast nearly as good. Des-
parate Characters is a thinking
man's film, and don't let that
ca:egorization put you off; this
is probably the best single of-
fering of the summer. ****
Rebel Without a Cause -
(Ann Arbor Film Co-op, Ang.
Aud. A, 9 only) - Nicholas
Ray's high school delinquency
tale is th most notable genre
film of the '50's, every element
of which is relegated to insig-
nificance by its star and its
director. Forget the cornball
script with its troubled - teen
cliches, forget the bad acting
by some of the kids and most
of the adults, the hokey sets
an the general Hollywood men-
tality pervading the preceed-
ings Ray's vision of a night
and a half in the life of a youth-
ful loner ignores those cellu-
loid boundaries and transcends
itself into an ethereal legiti-

macy all its own. Under his
eye, his characters glide and
dance through an ecstatic - de-
monic Walpurgis Nacht, where
the young are immortal and
the only death the sudden death
of morning. Ray found the per-
fect extension of his dark li-
turgy through James Dean, who
instinctively understood truths
most trained actors didn't, who
never grew old and thus worn
out, who instead remained as
eternal as the night - spawned
moonchildren of his director's
rite. ****

er Band, Charlie Daniels Band,

gie Band, Rock, $1.00 students,

Mr. Flood's Party - Eric
Glatz, Country, no cover.
Modern Times - (Ann Ar-
bo- Film Co-op, Ang. Aud. A,
7 & 9) - Man vs. machine in
this immortal, deceptively sim-
ple humanity study. Charlie

Chaplin's funniest film is also
his best. ****
Everything You Always
Wanted to Know About Sex -
(Peoples' Bicentennial Com-
mission, MLB, 7, 8:30 & 10) -
Woody Allen's disjointed com-
edy is less a parody on Dr.
Reuben than on various movie
genres (the horror film, the
Italian film, etc.). An extreme-
ly mixed bag, with the Allen-
starring episodes faring con-

siderably better than those in
which he doesn't appear. The
film is far less than the sum
of its parts, but certainly con-
tains something for everyone.
Second Chance - Chopper,
Top 40, $1.00 students, $1.50
Blind Pig - Larry Mander-
ville and Friends, Jazz, $1.00
Mr. Flood's Party - Stony
Creek, Bluegrass, 75c cover

ings, Jessi Colter, Tompall, The
Outlaws Band, $7.50 and $5.00

Gimie Shelter - (Ann Ar-
bor Film Co-op, Ang. Aud. A,
7:15 & 9) - Billed as the dark
side of Woodstock, this film
chronicles The Rolling Stones'
1969 American tour, culminat-
ing with their apocalyptic free
concert at Altamont. Gripping
and horrifying, although there
has always been some lingering
doubt as to how much of the
documentary may have been
stage - managed by the film-
makers. An absorbing rock
psychology study nonetheless.

One day the scariest thing about cancer may be the needle
that makes you immune to it.
The theory: build up the body's defense to fight off a
disease naturally.
Dramatic research in this direction is going on right now.
Scientists are working on mechanisms to make the body
reject cancer.
And the promise for the future is staggering.
