A selection of campus film highlights

The Twelfth Annual
Ann Arbor Eight,
Millimeter
Film Festival
You're not going to see the usual
bunch of home movies, vacation
shorts, and birthday parties in this
festival of 8mm film. For twelve
years this festival has been
providing an outlet for the ever in-
creasing .number of amateur film-
makers who have turned to the inex-
pensive format of Super-8. The sub-
jects for past festivals have included
straight drama, documentaries,
comedy shorts, stop-motion
animation, and drawing on in-
dividual frames. (Thursday, Feb. 11
through Saturday, Feb. 13, Sunday
Feb. 14 is winner's night; Lorch
Hall, 7:00,9:00).,

To Have and Have Not
(Howard Hawks, 1944)
NRt really based on the Hemingway
novel. This is the movie that brought
Bogart and Bacall together, on
sieen and off. Bogart plays a
cynical fisherman, who, with Walter
Brennan as his alcoholic first mate,
gets tangled up with the bad Nazis
and the good resistance fighters.
(feb. 11; Michigan Theater, 3:00,
7:00).
McCabe and Mrs. Miller
(Robert Altman, 1971)
Warren Beatty and Julie Christie
star in a dreamlike portrait of life in
the Northwest around 1902. Preten-
ding to be a gunslinger, Beatty goes
about setting up a brothel in the old
town church. "Many critics have
picked this film as among the best
produced in the '70s. (Friday, Feb.
12; Aud. A, 7:00, 9:15);
Pat and Mike
(George Cukor, 1952)
Perhaps the best of the many Spen-
cer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn
collaborations. Tracy is a hustling
trainer who sets himself the task of
transforming a school teacher into a
great athlete. A very funny, and
very modern film. (Feb. 12; Hut-
chins Hall, 7:00,9:00),

Bread and Chocolate
(Franco Brusati,1978)
The story of an Italian immigrant to
Switzerland, played by Nino Man-
fredi, who keeps getting into im-
probable situations. He strives for
the good life of chocolates and wat-
ches, but is constantly forced into
worse circumstances.The im-
migrant's plight has never been
more clearly shown, as we watch
one man fight to keep his dignity,
when all he wants is a chance to be a
success. (Saturday, Feb. 13; MLB 4,
7:00, 8:40, 10:20).
Dersu Uzala
(Akira Kurosawa, 1975)
Dersu Uzala is a lonely hunter in the
snowy forests of Siberia. He latches
onto a Russian exploring expedition
and becomes their unofficial guide
and saviour. Kurosawa's film is
filled with grace, the warmth of
human friendship, and an absolute
awe of the natural world. (Feb. 13;
Aud. 1, 7:00, 9:30).
Man of Marble
(Andrzej Wajda, 1977)
The controversial Polish director
Wajda has created a work of some
embarrassment to the Polish gover-
nment:A student, for her graduation
film project, sets about filming the
life of a worker-hero who has recen-
tly fallen from the good graces of the
ruling party. Originally finished in
1972, Polish censors delayed general
release until 1977. (Sunday, Feb. 14;
MLB 4,7:00).
The Mark of Zorro
(Rouben Mamoulian,1940)
The original classic righter-of-
wrongs swashbuckler. Tyrone
Power and Basil Rathbone do battle
as the forces of good and evil
(respectively)., Zorro is a
mysterious avenger of the working
peasants in early California, who
through his personal charm, and
quick sword, established that the
best things in life are movie fan-
tasies. (Feb. 14; Michigan Theater,
3:30, 5:15, 8:45).
Fellini Satyricon
(Frederico Fellini,,1970)r
A typically bizarre Fellini
fin-and not' one of his best. But
flawed Fellini is still more in-
teresting than a lot of other directors
at their best. This time the master of
film fantasy puts the warped, twised
world of decadent Rome on the
screen with mixed results. (Wed-
nesday, Feb. 17; Michigan Theater,
4:00,7:00,9:15).

Leaving it to
the Kingbees.

0

By Mitch Cantor
First there was "The Munsters,
1980," then there was "Escape
from Gilligan's Island, " and now,
"Leave It to Beaver Once More."
Beaver and Wally, though now
grown up, are still residing with
June and Ward in residential Saline.
Tonight the two brothers, along
with, buddies Eddie Haskell and
Larry Mondello, are out for a night
on the town. The event? An All-
Ages admitted Kingbees concert at
the Second Chance.
Beaver: Hey Wally, are the Kingbees
real famous or something?
Wally: Naw, they aren't big or
nothing. They got a little recognition
two summers ago with a couple songs
from their debut album. They're a bit
more well-known around here than they
are anywhere else in the country,
perhaps. Actually, they have a new
bassist and drummer-only lead singer
and guitarist Jamie James is an
original. I don't know if they will sound
the same.
Larry: Hey, Wally, are these the
Kingbees coming out now?, I thought
there were only three of them, but I see
five up there.
Eddie: Eh, you little weasel, these are
the Americatz, the warm-up group.
What' ja do, sleepwalk in here?
Americatz: Hi, we're the Americatz.
(50 minutes later)
Beaver: Hey Wally, why have they
been playing the same song all this
time?
Wally: They haven't been, but you'd be
hard pressed to tell. There have been
mostly oldies here, from when you were
just a tyke, like "Rockabilly Boogie"
and an old Gene Vincent song-and
they've thrown in a few originals. Un-
fortunately, they're a bit one-
dimensional-not too good at really
pulling together that fifties sound. (The
Americatz exit).
Beaver: Hey Wally, why did people
cheer when they said they were ending?
Eddie: Eh squirt, why do you have to
ask so many questions? Eh, Larry,
wanna play a joke with me? See that
beautiful girl over there? I'll go talk to
her, and while she's busy staring into
my eyes, you slip this sugar pill into her
drink.
Larry: Why would that be fun?
Wally: Hey, Eddie, what is that, a lude?
Eddie: Eh, I'm just trying to have a lit-
tle fun. Besides, these Kingbees are
taking a long time to get out here. Can't
a guy have a little fun anymore?
Beaver: (50 minutes later): Hey,

Wally, I guess this is them coming out
now, huh?
Wally: Yeah, that's, them all right.
Eddie: They've really got that three-
piece sound down pretty well, don't
they Wally?
Wally: Yeah, it's pretty much that
straight ahead sound that was around
when we were growing up. It's sort of
nice for a change.
Beaver: Yeah, and that Jamie James,
he doesn't dog it when he sings. He
really puts everything into it.
Wally: Yeah, he's sort of an early John
Lennonish rocker when he really gets
into it.
Larry: Are these all new songs, Wally?
Wally: Some of 'em are. But some of
'em are also from the first
album-"Ting-a-ling," "Shake-bop,"
and "No respect." As a matter of fact,
here comes "My Mistake."
Larry: Wow, that guy must have a lot of
energy to still be moving like that after
an hour.
(The Kingbees exit.)
Beaver: You think they'll do an encore,
Eddie?
Eddie: They should, after that recep-
tion.
Beaver: Eh, here they come. Hey neat,
Wally, Jamie's coming into the audien-
ce.
Eddie: Yeah, he probably figured you
squirts would get a kick out of it.
Wally: Eh, watch it, Eddie. I mean
leave the little squirt alone.
(Kingbees exit triumphantly.)

Slave is never dull

ONCE AGAIN, Second Chance is
presenting another soul concert
with the appearance of Slave tonight. It
promises to' be an , exciting
evening-because if nothing else, Slave
is never dull.
The band is best known for their
ability to perform pure, vigorous funk,
which is evident on hits like "Slide,"
"Watching You," and most recently
"Snap Shot." However, they are also
capable of softening their sounds to in-
clude pieces such as "Just a Touch of

Love" and their latest hit, "Wait for
Me."
Originating in the state of Ohio, which
boasts such acts as Lakeside, Heatwave
and Zapp, Slave is on its way to
becoming one of the premier soul
groups in the country. The band offers a
variety of styles and sounds which were
impressive enough to earn them
Record World's R&B Album-Top New
Male Group and NATRA's "Male
Group of the Year" after their debut
album in 1977. -Elizabeth James
