Firesign Funnies - (Cinema
Guild, Arch. Aud., 7:30 & 9:30)
- A collection of filmed Fire-
sign Theatre skits. The products
of the reigning geniuses of aural
comedy, who proved a lot less
funny visually in the one seg-
ment of this group I've seen,
Martian Space Party. I think
it was a little disissusioning
to find that the complex and
enveloping universes of the
group's recordings were really
just the product of four guys
standing around making weird
noises. If you cherish the quali-
ty of imagination, perhaps you'd
best avoid this presentation al-
together.
Dr. Strangelove - (Ann Ar-
bor Film Co-op, MLB 3, 7:15
& 9) - The recent chic of
detente does nothing to dim
and, in fact, only illuminates
the timeliness and brilliance of
Kubrick's ultimate Bomb para-
noia study. Obviously more than
a period piece, his hilarious and
terrifying film will be played
and replayed so long as mass
hysteria and brute force are
employed as substitutes for hu-
man intelligence and human
love. A work of genius. **

Images - (Ann Arbor Film
Co-op, Ang. Aud. A, 7 & 9) -
A prime example of how Rob-
ert Altman in his early direc-
torial career ripped off left and
right from other filmmakers
and still received perpetual
credit for being daring and orig-
inal. This surrealistic study of
a young woman's psychological
disintegration carps liberally
from Polanski's Repulsion and
Fellini's Juliet of the Spirits,
but still comes across as a rea-
sonably absorbing, frightening
film - which is hardly surpris-
ing, considering its exceptional,
(if uncredited) sources. Much
of the credit for Images' effec-
tiveness should go to star Su-
sanna York, whose portrayal of
the tormented protagonist con-
tains far more innovation and
insight than anything dreamed
of by her golden-boy director.

The Discreet Charm of the
Bourgeoisie - (Ann Arbor Film
Co-np, Ang. Aud. A, 7 & 9) -
Lois Bunuel's intricate, often
hysterically comic fantasy of a
group of French aristocrats who
are forever sitting down to din-
ner and fovever being inter-
rupted by various wildly "bizarre
but determinedly deadpan oc-
curences. The film is an im-
mense dream-within a dream-
within a dream absurdity that
lacks the bite of some of
Bunuel's earlier savages on the
privileged, but is at the same
time considerably funnier. ****

Five Easy Pieces- (Ann Ar-
bor Film Co-op, Ang. Aud. A,
7 & 10:30)-I don't think films
can tackle a more important
theme than the difficult, often
implacable gulf separating the
intellectual and the physical in
human relations. One wants to
root so hard for the makers of
Five Easy Pieces for their sim-
ple willingness to grapple with
the subject, but the sad fact
remains that their finished pro-
duct fails dismally to provide
even an initial insight to the
dilemma, much less offer a
solution. As one watches the
oil field labors of brainy, self-
spurned underachiever Robert
Dupea, one can't help reacting
to him more as a self-indulgent
brat than an alienated aesthete,
and it thus becomes rather dif-
dicult to sympathize with his
admittedly universal hangup.
Much of the problem lies in
Jack Nicholson's performance,
which is so unrelentingly nas-
ty that after a while you just
want to punch him in the nose.
Psych-Out-(Ann Arbor Film
Co-op, Ang. Aud. A, 8:45 only)-
A quite dreadful little film about
life among the hippies, Holly-
wood style. The only interesting
item about this low - budget
orphan is that .it was the last
salad film made by Jack Nich-
olson before his leap to fame
a la Easy Rider, and makes you
realize how much he must ap-
preciate being a full-fledged
star. *
Queen Elizabeth II, the great-
great-great-great granddaugh-
ter of King George III, is also
a second cousin seven times
removed of George Washing-
ton.
Battles between guards and
strikers resulted in 10 deaths at
the Carnegie steel mill at
Homestead, Pa., in 1892.
It was Chief Tecumseh who
urged the Creek Indians to
fight the whites in Louisiana in
1812.
A Nike missile explosion May
22, 1958, at Leonardo, N.J.,
killed 10.

WASHINGTON (AP)-There's
a lot of buck-passing when it
comes to the $2 bill. Despite
government predictions that
"the two" would be warmly re-
ceived by the public as a par-
tial substitute for the $1 bill,
it so far has been a flop -
hoarded but not spent.
More than 210 million twos
have been delivered by the gov-
ernment to banks, but relative-
ly few have found their way into
general circulation, officials
say.
MILLIONS of dollars worth
apparently are being hoarded
as collectors' items, especially
those issued April 13, the first
day.
Although officials aren't giv-
ing up on the $2 bill yet, there's
a lot of finger-pointing on who's
to blame for the poor recep-
Clarence Selin, the Treasury

Department's project director
for the $2 bill, said, "We have
no problem in saying the bills
are being accepted by people.
They are not being distributed
by banks and retailers as fast
as we would like to see it
done"
BUT AN OFFICIAL of the
Riggs National Bank, the larg-
est in the nation's capital, said
yesterday that most customers
won't accept two. He called on
the government to do something
to promote them.
"When our tellers give them
out, most people return the
twos and ask for two ones,"
said assistant Riggs vice presi-
dent Tom Brooks.
"People don't want twos be-
cause they are afraid they will
get them mixed up with ones,'
said a teller at Madison Na-
tional Bank here.
