At the Movies West Side Story Work of Film Art "West Side Story" m u s i stand forever as a work of film art which proves h o great a motion, picture can be. There have been great dramas, and great musicals, but "West Side" deserves a separate niche for combining and realizing all the potential ly against a brick tenement, magic of the movie camera. It explores a socio-econo- mic theme without preaching, details .a tragic love story without moralizing and above all approaches the audience with the implicit idea that it has a story to tell intelligent people. And it hits with the impact of bare knuckles beating vain- Objects Now in Space By JOHN TROAN ScrJpps-Howard Science Writer WASHINGTON, July 10 The U. S. reported 198 objects now are whirling through space. -The total includes seven se- cret satellites launched by the U.S. Air Force and four semi-secret Russian satellites. Five of America's secret seven pass over the entire So- viet Union each day. The oth- er two miss only the extreme northern fringes which har- bor one of Russia's atomic test sites. _ The U.S.' .satellites, at least four believed to be experi- mental reconnaissance ships, are orbiting from 130 to ;miles up. Russia's semi-secret satel- lites criss-cross the entire U.S. daily at altitudes of 124 to 930 miles. -The Soviet Union says they carry only to make scienti- fic studies but 'some U.S. space experts suspect Russia is .seeking to.- -perfect "sky spies" similar to those this country is working on. all, 44 satellites are in -orbit around the earth- The .U.S. has put. up 38 of these and Russia ,five.1 One was launched jointly by the U.S. Britain. In addition, three U.S. and two Russian vehicles are or- biting the sun as artificial baby planets. The 149 remaining objects in space are celestial junk They are burned-out rockets Sandia and pieces of launching ve- hicles that trailed satellites into orbit. JEROME BOBBINS' great stage work comes to the screen and its completely flexible medium in a blend of dance, music and acting that s total theater. So well mesh- ed are the parts they do not ntrude their individual fea- ,ures but instead make up the whole, intact. Natalie Wood is more ac tress than star for the first time. Rita Moreno, however, shades her slightly in a great- er depth projection that strikes Latin sparks from the asphalt wilderness the setting. Russ Tamblyn has waited a long time for a role big e n o u g h for his excellent talent and makes the most of it as leader of a gang. George Chakiris as leader of a Puerto Rican gang is a new find along with Richard Beymer. "WEST SIDE STORT" scored to the restless music of Leonard Bernstein and carried by the nimble cho- reography of Mr. Bobbins, The. narrow arena of slum streets, alleys and fire es capes is explored by really excellent photography, and color work that contrasts in- dividuals against their grey concrete backgrounds. "West Side Story" is a new standard of iilm excellence which will .not be topped easi- ly. It deserves every one of the 10 Academy Awards it re- ceived.
