BRIMSTONE AND TREACLE (Richard Loncraine,
1982)
The week starts off with an Ann Arbor Premiere.
The Police provide the musical score, and Sting
stars. He plays a devilish figure who intrudes upon
the home of a writer and publisher of the spiritually
uplifting. (Ann Arbor Film Coop; Nat. Sci. Aud.,
7:00,8:40,10:20)
THE TIN DRUM (Volker Schondorff, 1979)
The novel by Gunter Grass is the source material
for the 1980 Oscar-winner for est Foreign Film.

(Classic Film Theater; Michigan Theater, 7:00,
10:25)
ERASERHEAD (David Lynch, 1977)
The best word to describe this is unusual. Very,
very unusual. It's a black comedy, which you will
either love or hate, and sad to say, seeing it is the
only way to find out which. (Classic Film Theater;
Michigan Theater, 8:45,12:10)
POLTERGEIST (Tobe Hooper, 1982)
Great fun and wonderful entertainment if you can
stomach the well-done but often times stomach-
turning effects. A house is taken over by the coffin-
dwellers beneath. (Alternative Action; MLB 4,7:00,-
9:00)
MONTY PYTHON'S THE MEANING OF LIFE
(Terry Jones, 1983)
A hilarious look at the stages of life - from birth to
death- by the British comedy troupe. The film is
very funny, but it is also in slightly poor taste in
spots. Not for the easily offended, therefore, but fun-
ny all the same. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall, 7:00,
9:00)

Sinatra, Shirley MacLaine. Red Skelton. John
Gielgud, and others, "Around the Stars in 80 Days"

ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD (Michael Curtiz
and William Keigley,1938)
Errol Flynn swashbuckles his way through Sher-
wood Forest with Olivia de Havilland and Basil
Rathbone in a version of the classic story of a bandit
who takes from the rich and gives to the poor.
(Alternative Action; Nat Sci. Aud., 7:00, 9:00)
PORKY'S (Bob Clark, 1981)
Teen-age humor about sex and the like. Maybe it's
real good, and the movie is funnier than clips make it
seem, but this is one movie I am proud to have not
seen. (Hill Street Cinema; 1429 Hill, 7:00, 9:00)
THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH (Bill Wilder, 1955)

vacation.- What fun. (Classic Film Theatre;
Michigan Theater, 7:30)

Hawks, 1953)
Especially when the blondes in question are
Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell. This wonderful
comedy includes the song "Diamonds are a Girl's

Marilyn Monroe look-alike contest. (Classic Film
Theatre; Michigan Theater, 9:40)

9:00)
AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN (Taylor Hack-
ford, 1982)

7:00, 9:15)

THE FACE OF ANOTHER (Hitoshi Teshigahara,*
1066)
The Japanese film series rolls along. Following an
industrial accident which severely disfigured his
face, a man gets a new one which seems to do very
little to help. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall, 7:00,
FREE)

TERS (Once in Seven Collective, 1979)
