Tora! Tora! Tora!, 20th-Cen-tury-Fox's $25-million re-enactment of the "day of infamy" doesn't fix the emotional tone of that long and bloody conflict. It is nevertheless a fabulous spectacular and far more honest than, might be expected of a film striving so expensively for epic stature. " For once, both sides assume human dimensions. The Americans fear Japan will attack, but they allow crucial danger signals to be lost amid endless chains of command. In fact, seldom have Americans at war seemed so infuriating-ly muzzy-brained, or so human, as in Tora! The movie rejects the usual sneaky-treacherous-Jap depiction for a look at the minds behind the attack's strategy, at the stern Japanese military discipline and the devious defeat of the diplomatic corps by the armed forces. History textbooks have a tendency to wrap up incidents in neat teachable bundles. In Tora!, Pearl Harbor is seen as a battle fought by men slogging their way through bureaucracy and data, often us ing good reasoning to come up with the wrong conclusions. A Japanese admiral stops a second wave of planes from heading for Pearl because he deems they will be necessary in the war ahead. Had he sent them, they might have wiped out docking installations and the essential American aircraft carriers, absent during tha attack. Eecause similar incidents have happened before, an American officer stalls for confirmation that a Japanese submarine has tried to slip into the harbor. Immediate reporting of the known facts to higher-ups might have given American planes time to get off the defenseless landing strips. The official statement of the Japanese declaration of war, which the emporor wants delivered, according to the Geneva Convention, prior to the attack, is held up by a two-fingered typist in the Japanese embassy in Washington. The message is received by the n o w-enraged Americans 55 minutes too late. An American officer believes, rightly, that Pearl will be attacked on Sunday, immediately after peace negotiations have ceased. But his estimation is one week early, and his entreaties go unheeded. The first part of the film deals with the planning and mis-planning on both sides. In the second part, the onslaught is the star and the scenes are exactingly vivid, although, strangely not particularly gory. Parked together in clusters and long lines (again for what seemed sound defense reasons), American fighters are readymade targets for the horde of oncoming Japanese bombers and fighters. A few lurch up feet from the ground, only to be exploded by expert Japanese air fire. The awesome U.S. Pacific fleet, huddled together and deprived of its air cover, can inflict only minor damage on the free-wheeling planes. The harbor becomes a fiery cemetery of everturned hulls, plummeting submarines and devastated battleships. There are flaws in Tora! The Japanese, many of whose facial expressions range from solemn to woeful, seem overly endowed with foresight on the subject of America's potential for war. But all told, it is an excellent movie of a terrible and terrifying entree to a war. * * � The title of There's A Girl in My Soup says it all: nothing. A comedy with all the snap of a soggy cracker, it marks one more rung in the decline and fall of once - great comedian Peter Sellers and one bad mistake by last year's Academy Award winner, Goldie H a w n (whose career was not enhanced last week by her flatulent TV special, Pure Goldie). Based on the stage show of the same name, There's A Girl follows the bedroom exploits of a middle aged, English TV host who almost, but not quite, gives up his collection of girls for one daffy, butterfly - type layabout in the small person of Miss Hawn. Cactus Flower, for which she won the supporting - actress Oscar, was an engaging plot soldered with clever humor. There's A Girl shuffles about from scene to scene and puffs its way to an unmotivated ending. When the writing goes limp, which is often, vulgar humor is ladled in, with Miss Hawn either in undress standing up or in dress bottoms up. Only occasionally is her refreshing brand of pixie comedy allowed film time. Sellers has a gift for making a farce of stupidity in high and low places, as he did in the Goon Shows and his early British movies. Since Hollywood got its hooks into him (The Pink Panther, What's New, Pussycat) about all he has been allowed to poke fun at is Peter Sellers. There's A Girl follows in the same inglorious line. The film suggests a similar numbing process is being handed to Miss Hawn, the once-champion North American kook in Laugh-In. NOTES: Tora! Tora! Tora! (the words used to signal Japan's success at Pearl) has been nominated for five Academy Awards, in such areas as art direction and special visual effects . . . There's A Girl didn't get nominated for anything . . . Movie fans who like to predict Oscar winners are going to have trouble this year. Four of the five films nominated for best movie have been run in Lethbridge, but in the area, for example, of best actress, only one has been shown: Love Story . . . Women in Love, which has won four nominations, has been rejected by the Alberta Motion Picture Censor Board. The movie version of D. H. Lawrence's work was presented twice to the board and rejected both times because the producer would not B.C. student held in Italy VENICE, Italy (AP) - Police announced today they had arrested a young Canadian tourist found selling 570 grams of hash ish.

Gel mora out of lit* - Take th� family to a rnovi* allow cuts in it. Poor old Lawrence. To the rest of the world he may be a writer of genius; to the Alberta censor board; he's just another dirty, dead Englishman . . . Things could be worse though. In South Africa, the two-hour M*A*S*H was scissored down to 25 minutes and The Christine Jorgen-sc'n Story was shown only to segregated audiences -- women for the early show and men for the late. It's difficult to understanding the reasoning, particularly in the latter case. Does the South African censor figure an integrated audience would suddenly erupt into an orgy of sex-change operations? I mean, the lighting would be too dim.
