HOTEL NIGHTLY LOUNGE ENTERTAINMENT LILLY LARTER Joan WaterfielcTs Friday, December 13, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Entertainment eye Movie about daring gambler lacks This apparently is the season for concentration on gamblers as human beings and Robert Altman is riding the wave with California Split, a varied concept that fails to engross. Not without its virtues "Split" is pretty rootless in script, a series of vignettes, each rather splendid but with the whole lacking the "cohesion" that would satisfy. To add to the confusion the film is dedicated "To Bar- bara." Which is okay since adding to the plus factor are first rate performances by Barbara Ruick as a Reno bar- maid, Barbara Colby in a brief girl Friday cameo, Bar- bara London as a disgruntled horse player and Amy Pren- as Barbara the warmly human prostitute. Probably with the ensuing wackyness what the movie really needed was Barbara Streisand. The stars George Segal and Elliott Gould are first rate with Gould dominating the ac- tion as a seamy Runvonesqe character who will bet on anything and ride with the breaks. Where the conflict could have arisen is with the self destroying sickness of the compulsive gambler (Segal) GOOD STONEWARE POTS By Bogner, Camber, Elliot, Weaver and Roger W.

LOYAL ORDER OF MOOSE NEW YEAR'S EVE FROLIC Music By "THE LONAIRES ORCHESTRA" Noisemaker, Hats, Lunch T.50 per person Contact: J. BOBAK 328-3156 L. SPACKMAN 328-7544 but the writer skitters away from any real sociological comment. There's the standard brutality and some con- siderable humour especially in Gould's split of the win- nings with a nervous hold up man and his snappy analysis of the Reno poker circle. What Altman brings to his film is a great sense of at- mosphere at the tables, the track, in the players. And adding to that atmosphere is Phyliss Shot well, a piano bar player who grinds out the oldies but goodies in an enchanting whisky husky voice. There's great effect too in the use of multi layered sound, but this gets played out and the audience is left as Segal is when he finally hits the jackpot, empty and un- satisfied. If you missed the initial showing of Arthur Miller's After the Fall the opportunity returns Sunday (Ch. 9, 10 p.m.) What a strange play from the author of All My Sons, The Crucible, Death of a Salesman. It would seem evident that Miller is attempting to excor- sise a personal horror by plac- ing it within the context of the horrors of Belsen and the McCarthy witch hunt The ambivalence of this self revelation seems to be measured down to the last syllable of text. Within is to be found some of Miller's best writing yet some of the most florid junk he has penned. A great cast, with Christopher Plummer who too often seems plummy mouthed at full strength. Fa ye Dunaway's characterization of Maggie (the Marilyn Monroe and sur- ely there's no argument about that) is highly intelligent, technically polished. The hands are nerveless, the mouth spouts the eyes are flat and cunning. But there is no warmth, no vulnerability which was inherent in Monroe. This is the cruelty of Miller; the eternal Adam whose Eve is the destroying mother, the sensual unsupportive wife of the McCarthy victim, the guilt ridden German, the mindless gratifier of his sex. He is the Adam who waits for the next bite of the apple, the next fall while we wait for another great Arthur Miller play. I hesitate to suggest that any viewer move from the CBC Wednesday line up. This has been the highlight evening of the week with Musicamera (this week the delightful Les Feux Follets dance troupe) followed by Malcolm Muggeridge and First Person Singular (the Pearson Memoirs) but the dramatiza- tion of the 1962 Cuban crisis (Ch. 11, 7 p.m.) does tempt. Undoubted painstaking detail, a cast of fine actors (notably William Devane, Martin Sheen and Howard Da Silva) and a fine writer. Stanley Greenberg, should assure success It remains to be seen if the flavor of pagentry that assails such undertakings will allow the dramatic urgency to triumph THIS WEEKEND At the LEGION Friday, Cabaret: "THE SABRES" Saturday, Cabaret: "THE SABRES" Vimy Lounge: "DAVE GORDON" MEMBERS AND INVITED GUESTS ONLY W CANADA WINTER GAMES GIFT CERTIFICATES AVAILABLE NOW!
