Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, April THE LETHBHIUUE Joan Wateri'ieid Debates on sex movies rage on When The Sting finally exits it will have chalked up one of the longest runs in local movie-house history. And from a film that seems to have offended none the pendulum will swing to a film that has activated protest from many. Certainly Last Tango in Paris has raised more hackles than the similarly controversial but cunningly touted The Exorcist. Tango got a respectful launching with a rave review from the esteemed critic Pauline Kael who called it" an extraordinary important film." From then on debates raged on the merits of a movie which makes the audience voyeur to frontal nudity, masturbation and sodomy. An Italian citizens' group succeeded in having the film confiscated temporarily on the grounds that scenes of carnal violence that last for several minutes go .beyond artistic The Catholic Church in Australia called on "responsible members of the community to boycott the film" The British Festival of Light group said it was determined to hound the film off the nation's But Father Domenico Grasso of the Pontifical Gregorian University upheld the film aesthetically and the validity, with some reservations, of the sex scenes. He concluded it was an appreciable work especially if people are mature, capable of grasping the idea And worthy of mention is the comment of Lord Harlech, president of the British Board of Censors who believes the film can be seen by civilized people without fear that it will degrade or dehumanize A work of art or classy pornography? The verdict is yours. Hockey permitting the second run of The Whiteoaks of Jalna will be set for 13- weeks on Saturday nights. If the mind boggles at a summer repeat of the CBC's 1972 financial and artistic disaster, take heart.

Fayr Robison is a veteran of Playgoer, Coaldale Little Theatre and Lethbridge Musical Theatre productions a-nd garnered a best supporting actress for her performance in Gently Does It.

The show is total family entertainment and offers the chance for a good laugh; a rare opportunity in the entertainment field these days. There have been occasions in drama and music festivals when the adjudicator has thrown away his notes and abandoned himself to the pure joy of the performance. Such was the case when Jerry Pokarney's L.C.I, band topped the honors at the Canadian Stage Band Festival in Edmonton. An immediate, spontaneous ovation greeted the youngsters and Tommy Banks who's no slouch in the field erupted into this band is better than mine." How is such a thing created? By a fine musician such as Jerry Pokarney who can communicate his knowledge and Now it's on to tht national competition in Toronto. If the funds can be raised. Can they? The kids, parents, the Pokarneys have swung into action. There's a bottle drive Saturday; a concert planned. The ideas are popping to get the necessary and well- deserved bucks. Now is the time for the community to get behind the effort. It has happened in the rural areas; will Lethbridge be indifferent? Dig out a dollar or a dime, and there are areas where the digging can be a little deeper than that! The kids aren't looking for a hand-out, just recognition of the talent and discipline that has taken them on the road to national recognition. You can help them along with your donation to the L.C.I. Stage Band, care of the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. And you will... won't you?
