Take the Money and Run
(Woody Allen, 1969)
Like a one-man version of Monty
Python, Allen fills the barest of plots
with the most inventive humor. This
time Allen plays a small-time hood,
trying to make it in the big-leagues of
crime. Naturally he's a failure.

The Color Purple
By Alice Walker
Washington Square Press
Celie is black, female, 14, and
southern. Celie is in trouble. Her
mother is dying, her father rapes her,
and she is ugly and uneducated. Celie is
in trouble.
The opening scenario for Alice
Walker's prize-winning narrative isn't
a particularly happy one, and the first
hundred pages or don't get any better.
Repressed, frigid, obedient Celie tells
her tale in letters to God, probably
because no one else will listen. She tells
of her joyless marriage to a husband
who she refers to as Mister and whose
highlights
very provocative positions. (Satur-
day, July 16; Auditorium A, 7:30,
9:45).
The Wizard of Oz
(Victor Fleming, 1939),
Sure, you've seen it on TV. But seeing
it on the big, big screen of the
Michigan will be more than worth the
price of admission. Judy Garland
singing "Over the Rainbow," the
Munchkins, the Wicked Witch of the
West, colorful sets and-
costumes...There's no film like this.

5:00, 7:00, 9:00).

A Provocotive New Film From
The Director Of "Return Of

previous children she must raise. She
tells of her troubles and her survival
drive. She tells everything she can, and
with Walker at the helm, that's a lot. All
the hate and mistrust people can hoist
on each other emerges through the
pages and the years.
But this fast-moving novel is one of
redemption and liberation - probably
one of the most inspiring modern books
ever written in dialect. Also, while The
Color Purple might initially seem a
topical book - black feminism et al -
the range of insight and feeling Walker
covers is sometimes amazing.
Celie's struggle to love and be loved
reminds the reader of what's really im-
portant - and how to appreciate it.

Body Heat
(Lawrence Kadsan, 1981)
This is the perfect weather in which to
see Body Heat. A neo-film noir classic
with intelligent women, a grisly crime
of passion, and a small town lawyer in
over his heaad. A marvelous first film
by University graduate Kasdan. With
William Hurt and Kathleen Turner in
Bobby stays
a bachelor
(Continued from Page 10)
McGowan as Peter are funny as the
couple who divorce for the sake of just
living together.
Todd Hooly as David and Janis
O'Connor Maier as Joanne are also
good as the most conventional couple.
Company is loaded with talent, as the
singing voices attest, especially the
harmony of the three girls who sing
"you could drive a person mad, you
could drive a person kook" during
which they perform a marvelous dance
routine rivalling the Supremes.
The only thing lacking in Company is
the script Sondheim left for the com-
pany. The plot itself is banal and vapid.
But the songs he provided are lyrically
funny and the score is melodious.
Technically, the play is superb and
director and choreographer Gary
Garrison, along with the cast and crew,
have created a fine production.
