Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, December 20, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Joan WaterfielcTs. Entertainment eye Youngsters film need look suggested Maybe the movie makers should take a tip from Robert Miller's Girl from Petroyka and give a closer scrutiny to the film needs of youngsters. Youngsters that could be termed half past Disney and quarter to Billy that are of an age to relish the totally romantic. Not that Girl from Petrovka will break box office records; not that it is properly keyed to a great potential audience. But there are overtones of the old time movie movie, the kind of romance that had in the thirties Robert Donat rescuing the lovely aristocrat (Marlene Dietrich) from the revolutionary forces in Knight Without Armour. Such memories of movie going in the early teens. Of course our hero would not confess that he got a masters at Harvard and a mistress at Radcliffe. Nor would there be a bedroom scene although here it is most delicately handled. And not to suggest that such excision implies cenorship or that thirteen year olds are incapable of coping with the elements of life far removed from the chaste kiss. But what's wrong with gen- tle romance? And all the elements are to be found in Girl From Petrovka. Hal Holbrook is the Moscow correspondent for the Chicago Tribune, Goldie Hawn a will o the wisp living in the city without residency papers. Romance blooms in the black market. Eventually Goldie is sentenced to five years for im- moral behaviour, Hal goes back to America to write a book instead of casting himself, in classic style, into the Moskva. Not everybody's samovar but the performances are so rich that the ambling story and the "what might have been" can be forgiven. It is standard to refer to Goldie Hawn as delicious. And even with that Russian accent she's enchanting but she's something more; a proven actress of sensitivity and depth. There's inspiration also in the casting of Hal Holbrook, a fine actor who succeeds well as romantic lead. There's joy too in Anthony Hopkins as the black marketeer cum athletic coach. Hopkins has got to be one of the best actors on any shore, his top rare film appearances give us little op- portunity to appreciate him. Not a great film, just a rather nice one that deserves its parental guidance rating, that with the rough edges softened could have reached We are pleased to announce that our DINING ROOM Prompt 1 Courteous Service is now FULLY LICENSED back to a more romantic era and reached out to a larger audience. Pantomime is one of those happy miracles that come along to pump life into local theatre by creating the total family audience. Now a Christmas tradition at the Yates it has been spon- sored on all but one occasion by the Allied Arts Council. It's truly a family affair with Muriel Jolliffe as writer director choreographer producer, husband Ray heading the stage crew and stage manager, daughter Carol on stage and Grand- mother Carson in charge of costumes. When the production, this year Cinderella, takes to the stage on Boxing Day, it's sheer joy. It's joy for the immediately enchanted children and hilarious fun to see proper business man and staid matron in those packed audiences rise and give their all to the "the itsy bitsy spider" or "you put your whole self out and shake it all about." Pantomime wouldn't be the same without that audience participation. But there wouldn't be pan- tomime without the real sacrifice of the participants, the good people who have sewn far into the night, painted sets on a day which meant dining al la delicatessen rather than shar- ing the festive bird. And hours of rehearsal while we com- We recently completed a major renovation and remodelling pro- gram and are happy to announce that our secluded dining room is now fully licensed for your dining enjoyment..

Representational art making big comeback TORONTO (OP) Representational art is mak- ing a strong comeback in response to the demands of collectors, says the publisher of a new collection of recent .Canadian works. Bob Burdett, executive co- ordinator of the Roundstone Council for the Arts, said the demand for representational art, in place of abstract works, amounts to a mania. The council, initially financ- ed by some major corporation subscriptions and now trying to finance itself, has just published its second collection of current works, Canadian Artists in Exhibition II. It retails at which in- dicates the expense of publishing books about Cana- dian art. It is the second volume to be published by the council this year, and in future the council intends to put out one volume each year indicating the trend of the latest works of Cana- dian artists.
