HAMLET (Laurence Olivier,
1948) Nat. Sci. 7:00 & 9:30 p.m.
The King of Denmark has been
murdered, and how will Prince
Hamlet avenge the death? Successful
film adaptation of the Shakespearean
tragedy, with the text cut down to
feature-length size (a complete stage
performance usually takes around
four hours). With Olivier, Eileen
Herlie, Basil Sydney, and Jean
ROXANNE (Fred Schepisi,
1987)Michigan Theater 9:10 p.m.
Never before have nose jokes
seemed so harmless. Rostand's
Cyrano de Bergerac , the story of an
articulate cavalier in dire need of
rhinoplastyis updated for the '80s.
Steve Martin sweetens this adap-
tation with a fine performance as
C.D. Bailey, the local volunteer fire
chief, and Schepisi's production
values aim high, so you want to like
the film a lot more than you do.
This film needs a villain, or at least
a cynical voice to counter all the
connubial bliss at the end. With
Martin, Daryl Hannah as the title
character, and Michael Pollard.
SEVEN YEAR ITCH (Billy
Wilder, 1955) MLB 4 7:00 & 9:00
Fun in the Fifties: A married
man (Tom Ewell) loses his self-
control when Marilyn Monroe
moves in upstairs. A film that pays
tribute to the male gaze: Marilyn
takes bubble baths, talks like Betty
Boop, and bats down her dress as she
stands on a breezy subway grating;
Ewell loiters about, snapping off
one-liners and foaming at the mouth.
Based on the play by George
Axelrod. (See Story, Page 5).
SUMMER NIGHT (Lina
Wertmueller, 1987) Michigan
Theater 11:20 p.m.
Silly Marxist parable of Italian
politics from the director of Seven
Beauties . A beautiful tycoon
captures a Communist Robin Hood
and holds him for ransom. Given
the director's reputation, you can
probably guess the sexual
misadventures that follow. Some
funny moments, but Wertmueller
should keep the dialectic to herself.
In Italian with subtitles.
WHALES OF AUGUST (L.
Anderson, '1987) Michigan Theater
Lilian Gish, Bette Davis, and
Vincent Price face their golden years.
THE MEANING OF LIFE
(Terry Jones, 1983) Nat. Sci. 7:30
& 9:15 p.m.
Criticism of this or any other
Monty Python picture is pretty
much irrelevant by now, since
revival groups can always find
enough semi-enlightened Americans
who consider British dark comedy
the cultured alternative to
homegrown slapstick. Fortunately
the fragmented sketches work as well
as some of the best moments from
the troupe's TV show. Featuring
the machine that goes "bing," the
quest for the little fishy, and Graham
Chapman's john thomas.
POOR BUTTERFLY (Raul
de la Torre, 1986) MLB 3 7:30 &
Singer's conflicts during Peron-
SHOOT THE PIANO
PLAYER (Francois Truffaut,
1960) MLB 4 7:00 & 10: 20 p.m.
Early Truffaut. Piano man gets
caught up in the underworld. Leslie
Halliwell: "Fair copy of an
American film noir ." With Charles
Aznavour and Nicole Berger.
SUCH A GORGEOUS KID
LIKE ME (Francois Truffaut,
1972) MLB 4 8:40 p.m.
Screwball comedy about a female
inmate (Bernadette Lafont) who
confronts a mild-mannered social

THE BOY FRIEND (Ken
Russell, 1971) Michigan Theater
A troubled theater group puts on
a vacuous musical. Sandy Wilson's
stage play, a staple of bad
community theatre everywhere, is
brought to the screen by Russell
(Tommy , Crimes of Passion ,
Gothic ). Leslie Halliwell: "An
artistic disaster of some signif-
icance." With Twiggy, Christopher
Gable, and Max Adrian.
(Monte Hellman, 1971) MLB 4
Cross-country race; Easy Rider
imitation. With James Taylor and
Dennis Wilson (beginning and
ending their respective film careers
in one fell swoop) facing off against
