To Our Readers
A belated welcome back to Ann Arbor. Because of the
production time needed, Weekend doesn't reappear in
Friday Dailies until the second week of the new semester.
Besides all of the Magazine's regular features - music
and film reviews, in-depth cover stories, interviews, The
List - this term we have a new columnist, John Logie.
His column begins on Page 8.
Your comments, criticisms and suggestions are
always welcome. Write to Weekend Magazine Editor,
420 Maynard St., Ann Arbor, MI 48109.

Clint Eastwood must whip a bunch

the ultimate test of American
valor... Grenada! At the Fox Village

LADY AND THE TRAMP
The best and most unabashedly
romantic cartoon Disney ever did,

meek flower shop handyman who

innocence. Directed by Rob Reiner.

parked," quips Kirk, as they set off
into yet another strange, old world.

THE THREE AMIGOS
John Landis' Western spoof isn't
really as bad as you've heard it is;

harmless. Martin Short, Steve
Martin, and Chevy Chase are three
dandy moving picture actors who
must recreate their legendary exploits
for keeps when a small Mexican
village hires them for protection
from a bandito. At the Movies At
