Mary Dibble
1121 South University
A GLANCE AT Mary's windows on any given day
gives one a crash course in suburban housecoat
chic. Madras. Massive polka dots. Incandescent
floral prints.
The look is prim, proper, uncompromisingly
upright. This type of clothing tells the world that your
money is old enough that it places you above public
disapproval.
Very few left-wing radicals on the mailing list.
Van Boven Shoes
17 Nickles Arcade
SERIOUS SHOES for serious people. Shoes that
say "I'm here for a purpose." Functional shoes.
Conservative shoes. Hush Puppies. Timberland.
For men, wingtips that get passed on for several
generations. Indestructible and business like.
For women, stern, no-nonsense, schoolteacher
pumps. Very Doris Day.
The Bagpiper
1200 South University
M UFFY, BUNNY, and Gretchen shop here exclu-
sively. Very pink and green and Madras prints.
Blazers and oxford-cloth shirts.
Stopping through the doors of this store is like
walking into a life-sized Talbot's catalog.
Motifs abound here. Whales, ducks, seashells and
the requisite alligators.

located in a converted house on Liberty, features
a range of merchandise and a personable staff which
make shopping (or just browsing) there a rather

in Ann Arbor stores.

ARGUABLY THE STORE which most efficiently
translates the sartorial tastes of the local
student population (male and female) into the
physical manfiestation of tangible clothing.

Denim from Levi's to Compliments.
In what seems to be a move upscale, the store now
stocks $44 jeans and $48 sweatshirts, along with the
basic Levi's and Generra items.
The upper level, the Grizzly Adams department as
it were, stocks a daunting array of outdoor gear. Ten-
ts and backpacks and other items that are flown in
from Yosemite National Park or someplace.

BAD BOYS
A suspenseful tale of torn loyalties in a juvenile
delinquent facility. From the director of Halloween
II; Bad Boys gives a little insight into the lives of
some troubled young men. It's not as trite as its title
suggests. (State Theater, 231S. State; 662-6264).
THE BLACK STALLION RETURNS
And return he does. The same production company
- Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope Studio - brings
you a return engagement of that cute boy and his
horse. Not as gripping as the first, but sequels never
are. (Movies at Briarwood, Briarwood Mall; 769-
8780).
FRANCES
Jessica Lange has come a long way from her King
Kong days, and this film shows it. Her tour de force
as Hollywood star Frances Farmer outshines the
lukewarm script.(Campus Theater,.1214 S. Univer-
sity; 6684416).

GANDHI
It is possible to live in peace, Gandhi said. Atten-
borough's three hour epic is never patronizing, yet
never particularly revealing, despite a remarkable
performance by Ben Kingsley as the Mahatma.
(Movies at Briarwood, Briarwood Mall; 769-8780).
HIGH ROAD TO CHINA
Hope and Crosby this ain't. This road picture stars
Tom (the Incredible Hunk) Selleck as Patrick
O'Malley, former WWI flying ace. His main objec-
tive after the war is to keep his fly-by-night pilot
school out of hock. So, he takes a job searching for a
rich young heiress' father. Bess Armstrong (The
Four Seasons) is the damsel in distress. (Ann Arbor
Theater, 210 S. 5th; 761-9700).
MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD
Martin Sheen-stars in this adaptation of Erich
(Love Story) Segal's novel about a man, woman and
child (oh noooo). (State Theater, 321 S. State; 662-
6264).
MAX DUGAN RETURNS
The latest (and probably the last) effort from Mr.
and Mrs. Neil Simon (Marsha Mason), this comedy
explores the fantasies and foibles of the American
Dream. Jason Robards is Mason's ex-con father who
is hell-bent on providing his offspring with anything

they could ever desire. (Movies at Briarwood,
Briarwood Mall; 769-8780).
THE OUTSIDERS
This week's teenage heartthrob, Matt Dillon is the
star of Francis Ford Coppola's new film about
pubescent problems. Based on the heart-felt novel of
the same name, the movie concentrates on a group of
Oklahoma youths growing up in the mid-'60s. (Fox
Village Theater, Maple Village; 769-1300).
RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK
Harrison Ford is Indiana Jones (isn't that just the
best name you've ever heard?), college professor
and amateur archeologist. This action-packed ad-
venture never slows, even for a moment. Fun, laughs
and fright await you when the house lights dim.
(Fox Village Theater, Maple Village; 769-1300).
SOPHIE'S CHOICE
Meryl Streep portrays a strong-willed Sophie, a
survivor of Auschwitz, who struggles to find hap-
piness in America. Kevin Kline also stars as Nate.
(Ann Arbor Theater, 210 S. 5th; 761-9700).
SPRING BREAK
Well, ours is over so we might as well enjoy a little
fun in the sun, even if it's only celluloid. (Fox-Village

M ONEY ISN'T EVERYTHING but it is essential
at Renaissance. While they offer a unique
assortment of quality men's and women's clothing -
many by Italian designers with unpronounceable
names - their price range indicates a fundamental
lack of concern for the student trade - at least that
segment of the student population that balks at
paying $225 for a shirt!
Very good clothing at outrageous prices.

GEAR FOR dancers and exercise fanatics.
Danskin, Capezio, etc. Jane Fonda is the store's
patron saint. The array of all-important aerobic
exercise stuff that this store carries makes it a mecca
for the Richard Simmons set.

ON THE CONTINUUM of Midwestern department
stores, Jacobson's places on opposite ends of the
spectrum from, say, Fiegel's. Very good merchan-
dise mixed in with the banal.
This store tries to be all things to all middle-class
people.

T HE LOCAL vanguard of the Gumby resurgence
features an eclectic mix of merchandise. The stuff
runs the gamut from cutesy unicorn and teddy bear
items to some of the most revolting
greeting cards in the region.

KLUTE (Alan J. Pakula, 1971)
Jane Fonda gives herself a workout as a call girl who
saw a man the police are looking for. She won a Best Ac-
tress Oscar. Donald Sutherland is on hand as a cop. The
whole thing is from the director of All the President's
Men. (Alternative Action; MLB 4,7:00).
FIVE EASY PIECES (Bob Rafelson, 1970)
Jack Nicholsn is a musician who decides he would
rather work on an oil rig. Karn Black, Sally Struthers,
and Susan Anspach are also in the cast. (Alternative Ac-
tion; MLB 4, 9:00).
CABARET (Bob Fosse, 1972)
Liza Minelli, Joel Grey, and Michael York all dance
around in Germany as Hitler rises to power. They do it
well. This adaptation of the Broadway musical is quite
entertaining. From the director of All That Jazz.
(Cinema 2; Aud. A, 7:00,9:15).
STAGE FRIGHT (Alfred Hitchcock, 1950)
The master of suspense presents a rather complicated
thriller about a young actress who tries to hide a mur-
derer the police are after. She ends up getting slightly
caught up in the whole affair herself. (Cinema Guild;
Lorch Hall, 7:00).
STRANGERS ON A TRAIN (Alfred Hitchcock, 1951)
Two men think of exchanging favors. The favor is
murder. Raymond Chandler scripted tonight's second
Hitchcock film. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall, 9:05).
SAMURAI FILM SERIES
The evening of Japanese action and excitement starts
off at 7:00 with Part 2 of Inagaki's Samurai and con-
cludes at 9:00 with Kobayashi's Rebellion. (Chambara
Film Society; Aud. B,7:00,9:00).
MY FAVORITE YEAR (Richard Benjamin, 1982)
Peter O'Toole garnered an Oscar nomination for his
role as an aging, Errol Flynn-like screen idol in this often
hilarious comedy that does to '50s comedy shows what
Raiders of the Lost Ark did for '30s serials. Well worth
seeing. (Ann Arbor Film Co-op; MLB 3,7:00, 10:20).
TEN FROM YOUR SHOW OF SHOWS
Your Show Of Shows with Sid Caeser and Imogene
Coca was the rough basis for My favorite Year. This
assortment of 10 classic sketches from the original
should be a good companion to the homage. (Ann Arbor
Film Co-op; MLB 3,8:45).
TEMPEST (Paul Mazursky, 1982)
John Cassavettes stars as a mob architect who wants
to quit. He takes his daughter and a new-found friend to a
Greek island to avoid trouble. The comedy is uneven, but
the locale is gorgeous, the storm sequence very good, and
the music enjoyable. (Mediatrics; Nat. Sci., 7:00,9:30).

Julie Andrews is also on hand for the very funny goings-
on. Very, very, funny. (Mediatrics; Nat. Sci., 7:00;9:15.
IF (Lindsay Anderson, 1969)
Three students (led by Malcolm McDowell) at a
British private school, try to escape the school's rather
heartless system of maintaining discipline. (Ann Arbor
Film Co-op; MLB 4,7: 00).
O LUCKY MAN (Lindsay Anderson, 1973)
Malcolm McDowell again teams up with Lindsay An-
derson. This time the situations are quite lighthearted as
McDowell takes a comedic trip up the business ladder.
(AnnArbo Film Co-op; MLB 4,8:45).
HAIR (Milos Forman, 1979)
This film has too many virtues to give them all in a few
lines. The music is brilliant. The choreography by Twyla
Tharp is brilliant. The acting is brilliant. And the story
just kind of sneaks up into a very powerful one. Just
brilliant. Go! (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall, 7:00,9:15).
GALLIPOLI (Peter Weir, 1981) -
Mel Gibson of The Road Warrior stars as one of two
naive Australian track stars who enlist in the British
Army in World War I and head toward disaster in Turkey
at the tragic battle of Gallipoli. (Cinema 2; Aud. A, 7:00,
9:00).
DELIVERANCE (John Boorman, 1972)
This compelling film from James Dickey's novel tells
the story of four Atlanta suburbanites who want to raft a
river before a dam tames it. It should have you hanging
at the edge of your seat. Burt Reynolds and Ned Beatty
are half of the foursome. (Gargoyle; Hutchins Hall, Rm.
100,7:30).
THE LONGEST YARD (Robert Aldrich, 1972)
Burt Reynolds again. This time, he goes to prison and
decides to get involved in the football team, with some
humorous results. Entertaining comedy, if not great.
(Gargoyle; Hutchins Hall, Rm. 100, 9:30).
THE LAST WALTZ (Martin Scorsese, 1978)
The last concert given by The Band is chronicled in this
film. As concert pictures go, this is a good one, but it
helps to like concert films. The band is joined by Bob
Dylan, Neil Young and others. (Hill Street Cinema; 1429
Hill Street, 7:30, 10:00).

Chaplinesque heroines rebel against the trappings of a
male society. Czech with subtitles. (Ann Arbor Film Co-
op; Aud. A, 7:00).
VALERIE AND HER WEEK OF WONDERS (Jaromil
Jires, 1971)
The second film in tonight's installment of the East
European Film Festival chronicles the mystic period of a
young girl as she enters adolescence. Also Czech with
subtitles. (Ann Arbor Film Co-op; Aud A, 8:30).
ADVISE AND CONSENT (Otto Preminger, 1962)
Allen Drury's novel is the basis of this film that has an
all-star cast including Charles Laughton (in his final
role) and Henry Fonda. The story sounds familiar as a
presidential cabinet nominee has to deal with his past.
(Cinema 2; MLB 4,7:00, 9:30).
THE DIRTY DOZEN (Robert Aldrich, 1967)
A dozen convicts get a second chance in World War II
when they are sent on a dangerous mission behind Nazi
lines. Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson and Donald
Sutherland are in the cast. (Hill Street Cinema; 1429 Hill
Street, 7:00,9:30).
SAN FRANCISCO NEW WAVE (1982)
Fancy graphics and New Wave musical groups are the
chief attraction in this compilation of 11 films with such
titles as Hello Skinny and Dead Kennedys Live. (Classic
Film Theatre; Michigan Theatre, 5:30,8:45).
THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION
(Penelope Spheeris, 1981)
X, Circle Jerks, and Fear are but some of the groups in
this film which combines interviews and concert footage
to depict the punk music scene in Los Angeles. (Classic
Film Theatre, Michigan Theatre, 7:00, 10:15).
YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU (Frank Capra, 1938)
A Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway play serves as the
basis for a comedy about a slightly madcap and eccen-
tric family living in New York City. (Cinema Guild; Lor-
ch Hall, 7:00,9:30).
