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, 231 S. 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-
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.(State Theater, 231S. State; 662-6264).
FLASHDANCE A beautiful and talented dancer
supports her creative endeavors by working as a
welder by day and a dancer by night. Now that's
moonlighting. (Fox-Village Theater, Maple Village;
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

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. (Ann Arbor Theater,
210 S. 5th; 761-9700).
The same director that brought us the wistful
comedy Gregory's Girl, brings us this new humorous
film. With music by Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler.
(Campus Theater, 1214 S. University; 668-6416).
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).
This week's teenage heartthrob, Matt Dillon is the
star of Francis Ford Coppola's new film about

the same name, the movie concentrates on a group of

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).
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.

Zero Mostel puts on a Broadway show starring Gene
Wilder. It was so bad it was good, which was not what
Gene and Zero intended. Oops. The Wilder/Mostel
chemistry is superb in a classic comedy. (Classic
Film Theatre; Michigan Theatre, 7:00, 10:30).
A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO
THE FORUM (Richard Lester, 1966)
Comedy in ancient Rome with Zero Mostel, Phil
Silvers, Jack Gilford, and Buster Keaton. Stephen
Sondheim provided some catchy music and lyrics.
Excess was never so fun. (Classic Film Theatre;
Michigan Theatre, 8:45).
this romantic comedy which won an Oscar for Best
Foreign Film. French with subtitles. (Cinema 2;
MLB 4, 7:00, 9:00).
LIFE OF BRIAN (Terry Jones, 1979)
Jesus he is not, but the folks from Monty Python
will do their best to make you think he is in their
spoof of the life story of Jesus. Brian is out to topple
the Roman Empire. (Classic Film Theatre;
Michigan Theatre, 5:30,7:15,9:00).

Humphrey Bogart is one of a trio of gold prospec-
tors who meet with the dark side of human nature.
Huston won Oscars for Best Director and Best
Screenplay. (Alternative Action; MLB 4, 7:00).
CASABLANCA (Michael Curtiz, 1943)
The Hollywood classic with Humphrey Bogart and
Ingrid Bergman comes to Ann Arbor. Bogart plays
Rick, a cafe owner. The cafe attracts intrigue and
excitement. It might be a good idea to see this before
the new TV show with David Soul. (Alter-
native Action; MLB 4, 9:30).
THE BICYCLE THIEF (VittoriodeSica, 1949)
A poor man searches for his bicycle - an intricate
source of his livelihood-after it's stolen, de Sica's
cinematic study is one of the masterpieces in Italian
cinema. (Ann Arbor Film Co-op; Nat Sci, 7:00).
THE CLOWNS (Federico Fellini, 1970)
Some say this is a fluffy spoof of documentaries -
others see it as a great look inside Fellini, helping us
to understand why he is awed by the circus. Let's
compromise and call it fluffy insights into Fellini's
personality. (Ann Arbor Film Co-op; Nat. Sci., 1970).
THE MALTESE FALCON (John Huston, 1941)
Humphrey Bogart's third film of the evening
regrettably conflicts with one of the other two. He
plays Sam Spade in this one, and the famous private
eye gets mixed up in all kinds of things as he sear-
ches for that black bird. Entertaining. (Cinema
Guild; Lorch Hall, 7:00).
DOUBLE INDEMNITY (Billy Wilder, 1944)
Film noir at its trickiest is the best way of
describing things as Barbara Stanwyck teams up
with an insurance salesman to eliminate her
husband. Wilder and Raymond Chandler combined
efforts on screenplay based on James M. Cain's
novel. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall, .9:00).
STAR WARS (George Lucas, 1977)
No one could predict how amazingly this fantasy
would take off. The intergalactic adventures of Luke
Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo will delight
even the most cynical viewer. (Mediatrics; MLB 3,
THE 39 STEPS (Alfred Hitchcock, 1935)
Robert Donat journeys from London to Scotland to
search for the 39 steps. He must find them or he'll be
in trouble. A spy ring, you see, has framed him for
murder. It's not Hitchcock's best, but it does keep
one enthralled. (Cinema 2; Aud. A, 7:00,10:30).
THE LADY VANISHES (Alfred Hitchcock, 1938)
Margaret Lockwood plays a young lady who meets
the charming Mrs. Froy on a train ride from a small
village. Then, Mrs. Froy disappears and everyone
gets involved in the international intrigue. (Cinema
2; Aud. A, 8:40).
1900 (Bernardo Bertolucci,1977)

caster and others tell the story of two conflicting
Italian families. Italian with subtitles .(Gargoyle;
Hutchins Hall, Rm. 100, 7:30).
THE PRODUCERS (Mel Brooks, 1968)
Laugh to the sounds of "Springtime for Hitler" as
FAME (Alan Parker, 1980)
One of the most ingenious, thought-provoking
motion pictures to hit the screen in a long time. Not
only will your intellect be stimulated, you cannot
help but be totally entertained by the singing and
dancing. (Ann Arbor Film Co-op; MLB 3, 7:00, 9:30).
PYGMALION (Anthony Asquith and Leslie
Shaw's play about Eliza Doolittle's education in
walking and talking correctly is translated to the
silver screen. This is the play, not the musical, so
don't start humming "The Rain in Spain" in the
middle of it. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall, 7:00, 9:00).
1900 (Bernard Bertolucci,1977)
See Friday's listing. (Gargoyle; Hutchins Hall
Rm. 100, 7:30).
CHARIOTS OF FIRE (Hugh Hudson, 1981)
The Oscar king of 1982 returns. This finely crafted
film chronicles the story of two British runners in the
1924 Olympics who jog for more than just the exer-
cise. The film is well worth seeing at least once. The
score by Vangelis is the most emotional part of the
film. (Cinema 2; Aud A, 7:00,9:15).
FINAL EXAM (no one takes the credit for it)
Final exam week on this fictional college campus
is a little more trying than most, as a maniac stalks
the campus killing people. Thankfully, this is only a
film. Or is it...? (Mediatrics; MLB 4,7:00).
SWAMP THING (Wes Craven, 1982)
It isn't fine film, but it is a whole lot of fun. There is
a good deal of gentle spoofing of the typical horror
film and a lot of enjoyment packed in as the comic
book character comes to the screen in a film that
slipped in and out of theaters far too fast.
(Mediatrics; MLB 4,8:30)
BURN! (Gillo Pontecorvo, 1970)
The British hire adventurer Marlon Brando and he
becomes a mercenary in this look at the 1840
rebellion against the British in Portugal. (Alter-
native Action; Nat. Sci., 7:00).

time, he finds himself in the midst of Mexico's
upheavals in the early 1900s. (Alternative Action;
Nat. Sci., 9:00).
RICHARD PRYOR: LIVE IN CONCERT (Jeff
The hilarity of Richard Pryor is evident in his first
concert film. Not recommended if you find profanity
in large quanities unfunny. (Alternative Action;
A SLIGHT CASE OF MURDER (Lloyd Bacon, 1938)
Edward G. Robinson plays a beer bootlegger
during prohibition who tries going straight but finds
it difficult when he sees four corpses around his
dinette set. From the play by Damon Runyon and
Howard Lindsay. (Cinema 2; Lorch Hall, 7:00).
