Toral Toral Toral
(R. Fleischer & T. Masuda, 1970)
Lorch 7pm Japanese Studies/CG
free
A fine war film about the events
leading up to the Pearl Harbor attack,
told from both sides. With Jason
Robards, Jospeph Cotton and E. G.
Marshall. Will be sure to make you
enlist.
Barefoot in the Park
(Gene Saks, 1967)
AudA 8:00 & 10:00 Med
Robert Redford and Barbara
Streisand star in this Neil Simon
comedy about newlyweds and their
new apartment. Apparently they

MLB4 7:00/DBL CG
Rogers and Hammerstein musical
about a carousel barker (George
MacRae) who falls in love with

" . " . " *
It's a Wonderful Life
(Frank Capra, 1946)
MLB4 9:15/ DBL CG
The holiday season can't begin
without seeing this Frank Capra
classic. Jimmy Stewart wishes he'd
never been born and gets to see what=
life would have been like without
him, with the help of an angel named
Clarence. Lionel Barrymore's Potter
is one of the most despicable villains
on screen while Stewart and Donna
Reed are one of the most adorable
couples.
Peeping Tom
(Michael Powell, 1960)
MLB3 7:30 & 9::15 AAFC
Unsettling picture about a mentally
disturbed filmmaker who
photographs women while he kills
them, then takes pleasure in watching
the films afterwards (read: the viewer/
voyeur is an implicit participant with
the filmmaker). Should make you feel
guilty next time you rent a Friday the
13th movie.

(Victor Fleming, 1939)
Mich 7:00 & 9:00 MTF
A young farm girl has a Freudian
dream wherein she kills her mother-
fighue(the Wicked Witch of the
East)<and goes on a quest for her
father-figure (the Wizard) with the
hel, of impotent men (Strawman,
Cowddly Lion, Muchkins) and while
keeping her virginity (red shoes).
Phallic symbols abound with the
rainbow and the Tinman's nose.
S A T U R D A Y
Something Wild
(Jonathan Demme, 1986)
Hillel 7:30 & 9:30 HSC
Melanie Griffith is a wild woman
with kinky sex toys who kidnaps and
liberates repressed business tycoon
Jeff Daniels. Brilliant film that
doesn't slow down and is almost
stolen by Ray Liotta (Goodfellas) as
Griffith's ex-lover.
Satanis
(Ray Larent, 1972)
MLB4 7:00 & 9:45/DBL AAFC
Documentary on San Francisco's
New Church of Satan. Will make you
a convert.
Vampyr
(Carl Dreyer, 1932)
MLB4 8:30/DBL AAFC
An eerie mood piece that turns the

typical vampire hunt into a religious
war. Not like any other vampire film.
Cocaine Fiends
(William A. O'Connor, 1938)
MLB3 8:00/DBL Med
In the same vein as Reefer Madness
but not as idiotic. A racketeer hooks a
sister and brother on blow, telling
them it's "headache powder." Lots
of corny poses.
" " " " " "
Rock'n Roll High School
(Allen Arkush, 1979)
MLB3 10:00/DBL Med
A sadistic principal ("the principal is
your pal") vows to put an end to her
students' obsession with that evil
called rock'n'roll. Luckily (if you like
them), the Ramones don't feel like
turning down their amps.
The Masque of the Red Death
(Roger Corman, 1964)
AudA 7:30/DBL CG
Roger Corman's best film is a mixture
of Edgar Allan Poe and Bergman's
The Seventh Seal, with Vincent Price
torturing innocents and throwing
orgies while his village is wiped out
by the Red Death.
The Name of the Rose
(Jean Jaques-Annaud, 1986)
AudA 9:05/DBL CG
Sean Connery, F. Murray Abraham
and Christian Slater star in this
adaptation of Umberto Eco's pedantic
novel about a 13th-century monk
who investigates some murders in an
Italian abbey ("I'll have holy water -
shaken, not stirred").
S U N D A Y
Sherlock Jr.
(Buster Keaton, 1924)
* Mich 7:00 FVS free
Buster Keaton's amazing surreal
comedy where he plays a projectionist
who transports himself onto the
screen to solve ajeweltheft. Good
ammo for those who argue Keaton's
better than Chaplin.
The Playboy of the Western World
(Brian Desmond Hurst, 1962)
AudA 7:00 CG free
Eloquent adaptation of J. M. Synge's
classic satire about a boastful youth
who charms a small Irish village with
