ANN ARBOR THEATER
210 S. 5th; 761-9700
BROADWAY DANNY ROSE
Woody Allen is back with Mia Farrow, New York,
Insecurities, and even some loosely organized
crime; who would ask for more?
TERMS OF ENDEARMENT
A widow (Shirley MacLaine), tries to settle some
of the confusing points of a mother/daughter
relationship with her daughter (Debra Winger).
MOVIES AT BRIARWOOD
Briarwood Mall; 769-8780
AGAINST ALL ODDS
Not nearly so existential as some have said, but
quite intriguing, especially to those with a strong in-
terest.
THE DRESSER
A critically appealing drama turns around a pair
of actors wrestling to interpret Shakespeare. Oc-
casionally very intense.

FOOTLOOSE
A modern cultural thing viviantly expressing
American youth's predilection for freedom. A
possible successor to Flashdance.
HARRY AND SON
Paul Newman (girls sigh) returns to star in,
direct, co-produce, and co-write this potentially ap-
pealing melodrama. Robby Benson co-stars.
REUBEN REUBEN
Tom Conti cuts an erotic swath through the college
lecture curcuit as a philandering poet just trying to
earn a buck. Co-eds, housewives, and the east-coast
atmosphere combine to stimulate his creativity.
SILKWOOD
Karen Silkwood discovers disturbing things about
her plutonium plant. When she attempts to expose
them, she mysteriously dies in a car accident.
UNFAITHFULLY YOURS
English humorist Natassja Kinski joins the stun-
ning Dudley Moore in this sometimes sultry comedy.
Lots of romance and jealousy, some love, but not
much death.
CAMPUS THEATER
1214S. University; 668-6416
BLAME ITONRIO
Siskel blamed the director, though Ehbart felt the

end of this seductive flirt-flick justified the means.
But who knows where their thumbs have been,
anyways.
FOX-VILLAGE THEATER'
Maple Village; 769-1300
ANGEL
High school honor student by day, happy hooker at
night: oh, that ubiquitous angel. Not recommended
role-model material.
GORKY PARK
Can a jaded Russian agent detective save Russia
and the girl he loves from an international smuggling
scheme? '
ICE PIRATES
Star Wars may have had seven good years, but it
seems that its luck has run out. It's called a "space
comedy," but parody may be closer to the mark.
RETURN OF THE JEDI
Third in a series of space-age flicks that combine
action, amusing scenarios and charismatic charac-
:ters in an enjoyable, albeit mindless, movie.
THE RIGHT STUFF
To quote Davey Marlin Jones, "The Right Stuff
just doesn't have it." A good amount of public
patronage, however, has proved that contemporary
astronauts are still appealing.

AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON (John
Landis, 1981)
The third film to have some input from Landis in
two nights. Here he takes an amusing look at the
legends of werewolves. The best part is the
humorously grotesque makeup. (Mediatrics; MLB 4,
7:15,9:00)
ORDINARY PEOPLE (Robert Redford, 1980)
Timothy Hutton is a teenager wracked with guilt
when his brother drowns in a boating accident while
he watches. Mom is incapable of loving him, Dad has
difficulty understanding him, Judd Hirsch is the
psychiatrist who can. Excellent melodrama, worth
seeing. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall, 7:00, 9:15)
RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (Steven Spielberg,
1981)
A fine opportunity to see a fast-paced, splendidly
entertaining homage and rejuvenation of '30s serials
before the sequel comes out this summer. Indiana
Jones battles the Nazis, making the film a con-
tinuation of German movie weekend. (Ann Arbor
Film Coop; MLB 3,7:00, 9:15)

HISTORY OF JAZZ ON FILM (PART II)
Jazz, jazz, and more jazz from the collection of
David Chertok, owner of a comprehensive selection.
Part I was shown in November. (Eclipse Jazz, MLB
3,8:00)
IN THE SHADOWS OF THE EARTH
Lots of information on this film. It is a Tunisian
feature. It is in Arabic. And it has subtitles. (cinema
Guild; Lorch Hall, 7:00, Free)
TRIAL OF THE CATONSVILLE NINE (Gordon
Davidson, 1972)
A Berrigan family prvject. Daniel and Philip were
part of a group of nine arrested for destroying draft
board files. Daniel wrote a play about it, and
someone else decided to do a movie. (Alternative Ac-
tion; East Quad, 8:00, FREE)

TWILIGHT ZONE - THE MOVIE (Dante, (Dante,
Landis, Miller, and Spielberg, 1983)
A spooky and occasionally funny way to start the
weekend off. Four segments, each by a different
director. The Dante is good, the Spielberg and Landis
not so good, and the Miller excellent. (Ann Arbor
Film Coop; Nat. Sci. Aud., 7:00, 9:15)
A BOY AND HIS DOG (L.Q. James, 1975)
An adaptation of Harlan Ellison's story about a boy
and a dog looking for food and companionship retur-
ns for the second in two weeks. Why? (Classic Film
Theatre; Michigan Theater, 7:05, 10:30)
DARK STAR (John Carpenter, 1974)
The Halloween director did this SF film spoof while
still a student at USC. If nothing else, it should in-
spire Film-Video concentrators. (Classic Film
Theatre; Michigan Theater, 9:00)
THE WARRIORS (Walter Hill, 1979)
Innocent until proven guilty is not how the judicial
system works in the world of youth gangs. The
Warriors are falsely accused of killing a rival, and
all the other gangs decide to kill first and ask
questions later. (Cinema 2; Aud. A, 7:00, 9:00)
DAS BOOT (Wolfgang Peterson, 1982)
World War II. German youth learn cynicism when
put to work as sailors in the claustrophobic confines
of a U-boat. German with subtitles. (Cinema Guild;
Lorch Hall, 7:00,9:40)
CABARET (Bob Fosse, 1972)
Price, Waterhouse spent a lot of time in this
Cabaret as they tallied up the results for the eight
Oscars it won. Good music. Good cast of Liza Min-
nelli, Joel Gray, and Michael York. Good story set in
Germany during the rise of Hitler. (Alternative Ac-
tion; MLB 4, 7:00, 9:15)
ANIMAL HOUSE (John Landis, 1978)
National Lapnpoon is responsible for this
disgusting mess which happens to be one of the fun-
niest movies of the past decade. See it for the first
time or see it again. It remains hilarious.
(Mediatrics; MLB 3,7:00, 9: 00)

THE WOMAN IN WHITE (Peter Godfrey, 1948)
A thriller with a plot too convoluted to even try and
describe here. If you want to find out what it is, you'll
just have to see the movie. (cinema Guild; Lorch
Hall, 8:45)
THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD (Stuart
Walker, 1935)
A novel which Dickens never finished is the basis
for this thriller which Cinema Guild claims has never
been shown in Ann Arbor. Yet they do not call it an
Ann Arbor Premiere. The makings of another
thriller, perhaps? (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall, 7:00)
EXODUS (Otto Preminger, 1960)
From the novel by Leon Uris about the birth of
Israel comes a film with Paul Newman and Eve-
Marie Saint. She plays a nurse, he the leader of the
resistance. (Hill Street Cinema; 1429 Hill, 8:00)
LOVES OF A BLONDE (Milos Forman, 1965)
Forman, director of Ragtime, Hair, and others,
takes a look at love in one of his films made before
his emigration to the U.S. Czech with subtitles. (Ann
Arbor Film Coop; MLB4,7:00) t
THE TIME MACHINE (George Pal, 1960)
Rod Taylor is a scientist who invents a time
machine and promptly puts it to use. The H.G. Wells
novel of the same name is the source material.
(Classic'Film Theatre; Michigan Theater, 2:45,
7:00)
TIME AFTER TIME (Nicholas Meyer, 1979)
A wonderful, light-hearted movie about Jack the
Ripper. He uses a time machine found in H.G. Wells'
basement to travel to modern-day San Francisco.
Wells includes a chase scene and falls in love with a
bank teller A minor gem from the director of Star -
Trek H. (Classis Film Theatre; Michigan Theater,
4:50,9:05)1

POINT OF ORDER (Emile de Antonio. 1964)
A look at the Cold War of the 1950s consisting of a
documentary look at the Army-McCarthy hearings
of 1954 which led to the downfall of the staunchly anti-
Communist Senator. (Ann Arbor Film Coop; Aud.
A., 7:00)
MILLHOUSE: A WHITE COMEDY (Emile de An-
tonioi, 1971)
Millhouse, as in Nixon's middle name. And the
subtitle gives a correct impressionthat the film-
maker finds a lot of humor in the man's life.
Checkers and more. (Ann Arbor Film Coop; Aud. A,
8:45)

EHTNOGRAPHIC FILM SERIES
A weekly series of anthropological films continues
with "Les Maitres Fous" and "Trobriand Cricket:
An Ingenious Response to Colonialism." (UM An-
thropology Department; MLB 2,7:00, FREE)
WOMEN'S STUDIES FILM SERIES
Another weekly series continues. "The Com-
muters" looks at a subway station as middle-class
men go to work and women come to work as
domestics. "With Babies and Banners" documents
the role of women in the 1936 GM strike in Flint
where workers sat inside instead of picketing out-
side. (Womens Studies Dept.; MLB 2, 12:00 noon,'
FREE)
SUMMER OF '42 (Robert Mulligan, 1971)
Another film about WWII, in a week-that is full of
them. This one, an adaptation of a Herman Raucher
novel, chronicles the growing up of a teenager in
New England during the war. (Hill Street Cinema;

THE WHITE ROSE (Michael Verhoeven, 1982)
The first Ann Arbor premiere of the week is the
third film to deal with Germany and Nazism. It takes
