Sweet Sensations

T HESWEET tooth has the final
word, and as any dessert lover
knows, that doesn't just mean the end of
a meal. Sweets are a way of life for
some and an occasional privilege for
others, but almost all agree that sweets
fulfill the ecstacy of eating.
What is a sweet tooth and can it be
cured? No genetic or biological ex-
planation has yet been discovered and
the sweet tooth strikes all ages and
sizes. Sugar craving attacks occur
unexpectedly and the only known cure
is the immediate sweet consumption.
The more satisfying the sweet, the
more successful the cure and the type
of sweet directly affects the satisfaction

From ice cream to pastry to cookies
to candy, they all fit the bill for a sugar
craving cure. But every craving seeks a
special solution and in the world of
sweets, one selection from a wide
variety of confectioner's delights may
be impossible. To solve. this dilemma,
the combination of two ro more sweets
provides a viable option. Perhaps the
ice cream cookie sandwich or pie a la
mode will suffice. But if all else fails,
the tummy busting sundae is a sure
fire success.
Sweet tooth syndrome is alive and
well in Ann Arbor and when the craving
calls, sugar suppliers are plentiful.

MACBETH (Roman Rolanski, 1972)
Polanski conquers Shakespeare's classic story of
greed, revenge, and fear. From the director of Tess.
(Ann Arbor Film Coop; Nat. Sci. Aud., 7:00)
THRONE OF BLOOD (Akira Kurosawa, 1957)
Kurosawa takes the Macbeth story and changes it
around a little. The story is now set in Japan, and the
title character is a samurai. Toshiro Mifune (who
else - this is a Kurosawa film) stars. (Ann Arbor
Film Coop; Nat. Sci. Aud., 9:30)
THE GRADUATE (Mike Nichols, 1967)
The classic comedy catapu)ted Dustin Hoffman to
stardom as he plays a college graduate who makes
love to Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft) but falls in
love with her daughter (Katherine Ross). Mike
Nichols does a fabulous job at combining comedy,
drama and Simon & Garfunkel. (Cinema Guild; Lor-
ch Hall, 7:00, 9:00)
LIANNA (John Sayles, 1983)
The director of The Return of the Secaucus Seven
provides a story of homosexual awareness as a
woman leaves her husband to be with another
woman. (Alternative Action; MLB 4,7:00,9:00)
THE VERDICT (Sidney Lumet, 1982)
Kind of like Rocky, but with lawyers instead of
boxers. Paul Newman is a down-and-out lawyer who
gets an apparently easy malpractice case. He refuses
a settlement and decides to try the case, not knowing
all the forces allied against him. Entertaining and
inspirational. (Mediatrics; MLB 3,7:00,9:15)
CASABLANCA (Michael Curtiz,1942)
Another opportunity to join Ingrid Bergman on a
voyage to Rick's Cafe, owned by none other than
Humphrey Bogart. (Cinema 2; Aud A, 7:00,9:00)

ROLLERBALL (Norman Jewison, 1975)
Rollerball is a very violent sport of the 21st cen-
tury, and James Caan is one of its stars. Only thing
is, the powers that be would like to take him down a
notch or two for some nefarious reasons of their own.
(Hill Street Cinema; 1429 Hill, 7:00, 9:15)
Michael Caine plays Harry Palmer, spy, who finds
himself up to his neck in Scandinavian intrigue. Karl
Maiden and Francoise Dorleac also star. Third in
the series that started with The Ipcress File.
(Cinema Guild;.Lorch Hall, 7:00)
LONESOME COWBOYS (Andy Warhol, 1968)
A spoof of late shows and the wild, wild West that
will make the most risque of movies seem tame. You
have been warned. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall, 9:05)
ON THE TOWN (Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen,
Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Ann Miller and more in
a musical story of some sailors and their girlfriends
in New York for a day. Highlights include a dance
atop the Empire State Building and the song "New
York, New York " (not to be confused with the later
Sinatra tune). (Mediatrics; MLB 4, 7:00)
SINGIN' IN THE RAIN (Gene Kelly and Stanley
It comes again. What many consider to be the best
MGM musical makes another visit to campus. The
story deals with Hollywood's transition to talkies.
Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor star. (Mediatrics;
Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Robert Duvall, Diane
Keaton, and Talia Shire are but part of the cast in a
multiple Oscar-winning film about the world of
organized crime that many feel is better than the
original. (Cinema 2; Aud A, 8:00)
SLEEPER (Woody Allen, 1973)
Put you to sleep it won't, as Woody Allen visits the
future for some hilarious jokes about robots, cloning,
revolution, and just about everything else. Diane
Keaton plays Allen's reluctant lover. (Classic Fim
Theater; Michigan Theater, 6:00, 9:05)
BANANAS (Woody Allen, 1971)
The title is accurate enough a Woody Allen
manages to get involved in a Central American
banana republic revolution. Truly hilarious, and one
of the funnier things is wondering how Howard
Cosell's hair has gotten longer since his role in this.
(Classic Film Theater; Michigan Theater, 7:35)

THE DEER HUNTER (Michael Cimino, 1978)
Oscar's Best Picture stars John Savage,
Christopher Walken - who won an Oscar - Robert
De Niro and Meryl Steep. The subject matter is the
Vietnam War, and it is tackled in a gruesome, real
manner. (Ann Arbor Film Coop; MLB 3, 6:00, 9:00)
