Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, August 2, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGfc HERALD 7 Joan Waterfield Television's star returns to form Actress Shirley MacLaine returns to show business Robert Altman who made the highly regarded M.A.S.H. hasn't exactly covered himself with glory in the meantime. Thieves Like Us heralds a return to form It is a quite exceptional film, totally involving, with people so real that despite an occasional brush with sentimentality it impresses with its subdued control and excellent performances. The story concerns three Bowie (Keith Caradine) Chickamaw (John Schuck) and T-Dub (Bert Remsen) who break out of a minimum security prison into Depression era Mississippi and the usual bank robbing joyride. Usual? Hardly. Since Altman with a fine script and players shows a remarkable and unusual restraint He is sensitive to the obvious pitfalls of violence, choosing to keep in the mam, the killing off screen and concentrate on the futility of his protaganists Keith Carradine is an immensely attractive young actor, an older John Boy Walton on the wrong side of the law, essentially rather nice, a product if not a victim of the times The impotent dentist of M.A S.H second banana in TV's MacMillan and Wife, John Schuck is a gross and murderous drunk who scores some of the films most compelling moments. Shelley Duvall reflects the current inclination to portray the Depression teen ager as a pallid waif But what might have been a banal characterization comes across with a rare sweetness in her halting but all too human groping for contact and love The cast is uniformly excellent John Remsen, the limping T Dab who wants to make just enough to capture his ripe and bleached blonde. Most particularly Louise Fletcher as Remsen's sister in law who shelters the trio, threads the macabre situation with a nagging preoccupation with her children's table Looking For a New Exciting Experience in Entertainment and Food?

Music Friday and Saturday Banquet Facilities Corner 13th St. and 2nd Ave. N. Relax in air conditioned comton manner, and finally betrays Bowie Altman has opted out of the usual Blue Grass music score and has threaded his film with excerpts from radio programs of the thirties. The interpolations works well except in a jarring counterpoint of a dramatization of Romeo and Juliet to the lovemaking of the young couple. One may argue again at the climactic over kill, with the post climax of the pregnant Duvall's dreary journey to Texas and her dumb rationalization of her relationship to Bowie, with the length of the film. What cannot be argued is the rare good taste of Thieves Like Us Or that Robert Altman has handled his vehicle with quiet compassion and insight that achieves a quality of grace. It is unfortunate that Thieves Like Us should be caught at the tail of the slick but highly entertaining Sugarland Express and the depressmgly arty Badlands. A minor classic, it would be better served by better timing. Though deadline precludes a viewing of The Three Musketeers, this campy romp is recommended, on the basis of gathered comment as high style entertainment For moviegoers not averse to the Drive In marathon there's-a good weekend double bill The eighth James Bond flick Live and Let Die is a respectable addition to the series This time 007 tackles an alliance between the Veteran actor hospitalized with emphysema WALTER BRENNAN Show Times OXNARD.

STRETCHES NORTH The longest river in Canada is the Mackenzie which empties into the Arctic Ocean despotic ruler of a Carribean and the Harlem mobs. All the gimmicks are there and this must be the funniest of the lot and while Roger Moore lacks the dead pan strength of Sean Connery he's suavely effective with the double entendres. Second feature is The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing, based on Marilyn Durham's best selling novel of love and high adventure in the American West with Burt Reynolds and Sarah Miles. In town, though briefly, Bus Murdoch, city recreation director of the late 40s. Now a Santa Barbara, Calif., business man, Bus is taking time out to arrange an Alberta tour of the Gazebo One Theatre production of Godspell. Gazebo one a Santa Barbara proving ground for young professional talents has already among its graduates Timothy Bottoms, star of Paper Chase and Love And Pain and the Whole Damn Thing. The interest of Bus in the theatre will be remembered from the Recreation weeks of years past which gave the performing arts a lively community showcase Now the interest runs to a second generation with son Brad appearing as the Christ figure in the current production, which is scheduled for the Yates late September. Back to movies and Black Harvest being shot here for play on television come fall. A viewing late night of the daily rushes at the Paramount convinces that the critical pen should be discarded in face of the interminable work connected with any filnr. production. Locals employed as extras will appreciate that they also serve who only stand and wait and wait and wait. Apart from the local involvement the movie is to be anticipated for the always excellent Ben Johnson and a young actress (Lisa she appeared in the excellent My World and Welcome To It) who in her young career has always been a delightful departure from the cutely smarmy. The joke was on Bob Shackleford though Watching a youth enter the then closed cinema he was about to ask "howcome" when he realized it was "Harvests" Ron Howard. LOS ANGELES (AP) At night at the Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Shirley MacLaine belts out, If My Friends Could See Me Now. The song provides a suitable theme for her return to show business. For the last few years the redhaired actress has been playing other roles as world traveller, best-selling author, political activist. True, she did attempt a television series and a couple of small-scale movies, but they seemed half-hearted ventures and ended as failures In Las Vegas, friends are seeing a new Shirley rather, the entertainer that she was earlier in her career. Autopsy on mummy planned TORONTO (CP) An autopsy will be performed on a Egyptian mummy at the Royal Ontario Museum next month to determine how he died A team of medical and archeological specialists. including 11 United States experts and a numser of Canadian as hematologist Dr Gerals Hart of East Toronto General Hospital and Nicholas Millet, curator of the museum's department of to spend two days unwrapping the bindings around the mummy.
