The Marrying Kind
(George Cukor 1952) Nat. Sci. 7
A couple seeking divorce (Judy
Holliday and Aldo Ray) undergoes a
change of heart in court. Baby-
boom vintage Cukor. Screenplay
by Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin.
Born Yesterday (George
Cukor 1950) Nat. Sci. 9 p.m.
Mistress of a junk tycoon
acquires sophistication at the ex-
pense of her lover. Ironic choice
for "Judy Holliday Night," since
the role was first offered to both
Rita Hayworth and Jean Parker.
With Broderick Crawford and
The Postman Always
Rings Twice (Tay Garnett
1945) MLB 4 7 p.m.
De rigeur adaptation of the
James M. Cain novel about a
scruffy drifter (James Garfield) who
reluctantly helps his lover (an
exceptionally alluring Lana Turner)
dispatch her troublesome old
husband. Seems dated now (and the
voiceovers don't help), but it
contains moral dynamics--actions
have consequences, fate catches up
with you--that buoy to the surface
even in our own day (F a t a l

Tampopo (Juzo Itami 1987)
Michigan Theater 7 p.m.
The title character (the name
means "Dandelion" in Japanese)
enlists the aid of two truck drivers
to bolster the sagging fortunes of
her noodle restaurant. Wicked
satire of commercialism and filmic
conventions, including standard
narrative forms. Highly

Casablanca (Michael Curtiz
1943) Michigan Theater 9:20 p.m.
Winded warhorse about a cynical
nightclub owner (Humphrey
Bogart) and his frustrated desire for
a woman (Ingrid Bergman) who
apparently wants to forget their
past love affair. Appropriate film
for soldiers worried about loyalty of
wives and sweethearts back home,
and more than a little reminiscent
of Hemingway. But anyone who
hasn't seen it at least once deserves
to be alone. With Peter Lorre and
Sydney Greenstreet. Ronald Reagan

Those needing proof that the
campus cinema is in trouble should
take note of this James Bond title,
which for some reason received
more than the usual polite smile
after its release last summer. I
won't buy it for a second--this is
just the same old double-not spy
fantasy, with the sexism and
xenophobia we've grown to

Paratrooper boot camp in Israel.
Working Girls (Lizzie Borden
1987) Aud. B 7 & 9:30 p.m.
Mopey verite imitation about a
bisexual photographer who moon-
lights as a prostitute for an
exploitive, golddigging madam.
Borden grinds out a feminist
metaphor--society forces most
women to become whores in one
way or another, so what's wrong
with becoming a real one?
Watchable but too obvious and
shallow to be taken seriously.
