was foxy turn she wiped up a roomful of toughs dont get the idea this is just violence said the writer director Jack Hill but it was too late i had that idea after watching an hour of violence no its More than violence Hill persisted the film has a lot of social message you just happened to come on a Day when people were hitting each Othen but we have a lot to say about the role of Blacks in our society Hill incidentally is he says he has one message his own pet message which he gets across in his films nobody smokes on camera he made one exception in this one one Man smokes but he has a horrible cough he went Back to work to supervise a scene where Pam Grier turned the tables on her attackers and conked heavy across the Back of the head with a trash can Pam Doest mind the violence Label she says there will always be room in our society for whats come to be called Black exploitation Al films our culture loves violence Pam says and likes to see it its Good that there Are other kinds of Black pictures now but this kind of movie will always be popular Shes getting a reputation As a Beautiful girl with a Lovely figure and a Handy Gal to have around in a Brawl but that not what

says Grey blustery skies he smiled slightly when asked if he stays with his expeditions from Start to finish almost never he said then began laughing except for example the Antarctic shows there was absolutely no commuting possibility there a thin Silver haired some what frail looking Man of 63 Cousteau is in his sixth season of regularly making under water specials for television 24 of them since 1968 alone they have drawn critical and popular acclaim both Here and abroad and made him a unique kind of television Star a status he bears with a gentle detached air of amusement a retired French naval offi cer and graduate of the French naval acad Myat Brest he has explored nearly every Ocean area in the world most of his travels aboard the Calypso a former minesweeper he has converted to an oceanographic research ship do he and his colleagues make the expeditions primarily As scientists or As documentarian that a very Good question but its there that lies the originality of this setup he said this is the first time i think in the world that a lasting research organization is entirely funded by television normally you have a scientific expedition funded by a government or an institution and whatever photographic or cinematographic work is done is a byproduct but Here it is exactly the reverse science is a by product of television in my expeditions Ever since its funding by television in 1967 before that i had other ways but since 1967 Ive had a financial setup which combines All the Money i can get from this country or England or France Germany and Italy its about enough to finance the expeditions we make its not profit making organization and in not going to get Rich by it but we Are very satisfied when we Are successful in both research and our film work what scientific results do the expeditions yield quite a lot said Cousteau who is i of the oceanographic Institute of Monaco whatever findings or experiments or measurements we make during the expeditions Are exploited he said he also gets Many re search requests from other organizations at expedition time but i cannot satisfy them All if by Chance some requests fall into line with what were doing yes we take them on Cousteau interest in the undersea world got its biggest impetus after world War ii when while still in the Navy he helped found an undersea research group for the Navy he was asked Why he now concentrates on documentaries for television rather than pure oceanographic research i do it because this is a Basic philosophical approach that i have he said its substantiated my conviction that Sci Nece should never Drift away from the understanding by the people his place the believers Book store open monday thru saturday am to pm Lindale Plaza 118 w Lexington ave High Point no Dinah
