Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, August 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Joan Water field Thunderbolt, Lightfoot film top entertainment Post vacation check up on the local entertainment scene Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, the Clint Eastwood Jeff Bridges starrer is rough, violent, sometimes very fun- ny, and holds up as solid enter.- tainment Eastwood is his usual whispery gorgeous self, a cer- tain bet for strong box office response But his limited input works well because of the early es- tablished interaction with Jeff Bridges which creates a warmth that lifts the movie well above the routine action yarn The comedy drama gets off the ground (the Montana prairie) with a bang as George Kennedy goes gunning for Thunderbolt (Eastwood) in a neat story reversal that offers a thieves fall out situation for openers The affable Lightfoot (Bridges) inadvertently rescues Eastwood Then in an entertaining switch Kennedy Bridges Eastwood joined by Geoffrey Lewis re organize to do a re play ol the heist Against some broad comedy a wicked cat and mouse game mushrooms allowing Kennedy to roll his characterization from some highly entertaining, if sour, fun to the grimly brutal Bridges and Kennedy are standouts in the rambling but generally engrossing film, but Geoffrey Lewis as Goody just about runs away with the show as the immensely likeable fourth partner whose face is a running gag of ex- pressions The down beat ending is a bit of disappointment It turns the popular "Treasure of Sierra Madre' trick, that is the money gets lost at the climax, or, in another twist, the price of the heist comes to high As it does in this case with Bridges succumbing to a massive beating Disappointing, and the only disappointment in Thunder- bolt and Lightfoot since one could hope that as Bridges and Eastwood ride into the sunset SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES Theatre "AMERICAN GRAFFITTI" in color Friday, Saturday, August 23, 24 Friday shows at 7 00 and 9 00 p m ADULT FORT Theatre "YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE" m color Starring Sean Connery Friday, Saturday, August 23, 24 Friday show at 8 00 p m ADULT PINCHER Theatre "JUDGE ROY BEAN" in color Starring Paul Newman Friday Saturday, August 23, 24 Friday shows at 700 and 9 00 p m ADULT-NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN Theatre "SERP1CO starring Al Pacmo Friday, Sasturday, August 23, 24 Friday shows at 700-915 pm RESTRICTED ADULT Drive In 'SHOW DOWN in color Starring Rock Hudson and L-ean Martin cnday and Saturday August 23 24 Friday cartoon starts at 9 15 pm FAMILY in that white cadillac we could have hoped for a parlay into another film with the Three Musketeers is a raunchy not that touches just the right beat of the moviegoers pulse The casting of Raquel Welch in what might be classed a pretty hoary film vehicle gave some indication that it was going to be all for laughs And it is With an out- standing cast that has Michael York as a riotous D'Artagnan, Oliver Reed, Frank Finlay and Richard Chamberlain as the Musketeers, Simon Ward as the Duke of Buckingham and Jean Pieere Cassel as a finely decadent Louis XIII The improbables are Miss Welch Faye Dunaway and Charlton Heston, but it all works splendidly in high camp against magnificent sets The disappointment here is that not enough is seen of the pure Marx Brothers comedy of Messrs Reed Fmly and Chamberlain However this is but half of this nutty fruitcake, more is to come in The Four Musketeers sequel It s quite an experience to stand in the foyer of the Yates and watch a smiling audience exit brimful of the pleasure it found in the show This was the aftermath of the Wednesday evening per- formance of Damn Yankees Backstage the cast was as happy knowing it had put across a dandy show And it was Sheer escapist fun, the cast putting out as a team and some truly exciting star lights Like Sherri McFadden showing she's going to make it on the professional stage as she covered a missed cue with aplomb Like the unbeatable comedy of Mike Day and Marlin Howg, bringing down the house with "The Game Like Mark Campbell sure and lunny as the coach Like Tony Dimnik dominating his stage, sleight-of-hand and all And David Mann, Tricia Matheson, the nutty sisters of Faye Diedzic and Lee Remhardt And the wonderful- ly affecting close of "A Woman Doesn't Know" of Rhonda Ruston and Chip Schott Yes it s great to see the audience leave happy For the kids it s even better to see that audience pour in and pack the Yates for their show It s a super double-sudser at the Drive-In Back to the 40 s romance in The Way We Were with Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford as the mismatched couple eventual- ly torn apart by repercussions from the Hollywood blacklist era And Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams, a thoughtful appraisal of the lost middle age year with superlative performances from Joan Woodward and Martin Balsam.
