'Reds,' 'Raiders' up for Oscars
HOLLYWOOD (UPI)-Warren Beat-
ty's epic. Reds and Henry Fonda's
touching On Golden Pond led nominees
announced Thursday for Oscars to be
presented at next month's 54th annual
Academy Awards show.
Beatty picked up three nominations
for Reds, the saga of journalist John
Reed and the Russian revolution-for
best actor, best director and best
The picture, which took Beatty nearly
three years and $40 million to produce,
is competing for 12 awards-including
best picture, Diane Keaton for best ac-
tress, Maureen Stapleton for best sup-
porting actress and Jack Nicholson for
best supporting actor.
Fonda and Katharine Hepburn were
nominated as best.actor and actress for
their triumphs as an aging couple
facing his death in On Golden Pond. The'
picture won a total of 10 nominations,
including best picture and Jane Fonda,
Henry's daughter, for best supporting
Neither Fonda nor Beatty has ever
won a competitive Oscar, although
Fonda got an honorary award last year.
Miss Hepburn is the only performer to
win three Oscars for leading roles. Jane
Fonda has done it twice, Miss Keaton
and Nicholson once each.
Ragtime and Raiders of the Lost Ark,
the year's biggest moneymaker, both
collected eight nominations, followed
by Chariots of Fire with seven.
Besides Reds and On Golden Pond,
nominations for best picture went to
Atlantic City, the story of an aging
gangster who falls in love with a young
woman; Chariots of Fire, a touching
film about two English Olmypic track
stars; and Raiders of the Lost Ark, a
high-action spoof on Hollywood's old
Best actor nominations also went to
Burt Lancaster for Atlantic City,
Dudley Moore for Arthur and Paul
Newman for Absence of Malice. Lan-
caster won an Oscar in 1960 for Elmer
Gantry. Newman has never won an
t sBest actress nominations also went to

The French Lieutenant's Woman.
Other nominees for best supporting
actor are James Coco for Only When I
Laugh, John Gielgud for Arthur, ian
Holm for Chariots of Fire, and Howard

sentimental favorite for his role in
Ragtime, did not get a nomination.
Other nominees for best supporting ac-
tress are Melinda Dillon for Absence of
Malice, Joan Hackett for Only When I
Laugh and Elizabeth McGovern for
Besides Beatty, nominations for best
director went to Louis Malle for Atlan-

confiding about her career as a
burlesque queen, it would have made
the fragility and vulnerability shades,
rather than the central impression, of
her character, and hence more star-
tling and affecting.t
Kit Carson (Thomas Mahard) also
suffers from a lack of credibility.I
Mahard goes all out to wow the plebest
by being just as slick and professionalt
as they come, but in the 'midst of strut-t
ting his Equity Actor stuff, he somehow1
'neglects to develop his character intot
anything beyond the usual, "Son, I got
stories you wouldn't believe" sort of
person. He doesn't believe his tales
either, but is not amiss to basking a lit-
tle in the warmth of one's admiration if
he gets someone who does believe him.
Kit Carson, must passionately and
emphatically believe his own stories if
he is to be a success as a character.
That he believes them enough to keep
on telling them is evident, if only from
the comment, made in wondering
pleasure to Joe, "You're the first per-
son who's ever believed me." Mr.
Mahard, however, in going for the most
obvious interpretation of Kit-As-
Storytellgr, offers us a character with
no dimensions, with'none of the inner
ideal of living the time of his life that he
shares with Joe, and one whose act at
the end of the play has no
devastation-and no significance.
Finally, and most importantly, Paul
Eblen's Joe, although. competent,.is
disappointing. Joe is a very difficult
character to do anything with, the
more so since he is not-contrary to
what- we expect and want. from
heroes-a very sympathetic being. He
tells us repeatedly that he is a°
"student," that he wants to find out
''how things work." Certainly judging
from the way we see him first, we get
the impression of someone who acts a
certain way merely to see what will
happen, and then gets drawn into ac-
tion, not unwillingly, perhaps, but inad-
Like Nick, he is not a philanthropist;
he wants to find out. When he does find
act, however, there must be a certain
intensity to his actions; when he fails in
shooting Blick, his "I always wanted to
shoot someone," is a funny line, and
may get a laugh. But it should not be
played for a laugh, which is what Mr.
Eblen did, not just with that line but
with his character all through the
production. Joe, according to his inter-
pretation, is a nice guy, a little stange,
but basically good-hearted..
Still and all, despite these faults,
there is some nice acting-Greg
Jbara' s Tom alone is worth almost the
price of admission-and on the whole,
this is the most intelligent, well-
thought-out, and distinguished pieceHof
theatre that the department has
brought us this year. It is playing
through the 13th at the Power Center,
and anyone who wishes to have any
faith renewed in University theatre
