Though Vasey said many of the audience don't understand the music jazz buffs are addicted to the sound of the wailing horns the socie- ty has brought to the city in the last 13 months. Vasey has been credited with organizing the enterprise almost from initial phone calls and promo- tion to pouring coffee at con- certs.

The Hovel coffee house becomes a jazz with couples dancing under cedar beams at the back of the aisles where psychedelic posters line the walls.

Paramount purchased the United States distribution rights and planned an exten- sive promotional but theatre managers com- plained about the lack of promotion before the movie opened at two New York theatres Sunday with relative- ly small audiences. By the New York movie with the exception of the heavily- read tabloid New York Daily were giving the film outstanding reviews. The movie wasn't drawing on Broadway at the Forum which can seat and on the posh East it filled about half the 411-seat Baronet Theatre for some performances. But the Baronet manager said he expects the reviews will help immensely and he expects the Canadian film to run possibly a couple of months. The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz is an ethnic drama about Jews in written by one of produced by one of them and directed by a Toronto Bulgarian. a time when Hollywood is fiddling around with suspense and od- dities from the worlds of sex and the here come the Canadians with a very down-to-earth view of people as they writes Archer Winsten of the New York Post.

The film is the story of 19- year-old Duddy played by Richard a pusher who wants to get make the money by hook or crook. There are a half-dozen per- formances of award or Winsten says. Dreyfuss is in the title role. Vincent Canby of the New York Times says the film the fantastic and often moving of Duddy's ad- ventures.

He is one of the country's most widely-practised theatre and this summer alone his work has taken him through eight from the time of King John and Magna Carta to the in the context of Shakespeare. who now makes his home in designed the sets and costumes for the modern music version of Hamlet which opened July 1 at the Confederation Centre in Charlottetown. He also has designed the Stratford Festival production of King John which opens next week in Ont. For the up-beat he wanted something which clearly had the flavor of when.the story of Hamlet was supposed to have taken place DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC HOSt HOSAPK Certified Mechanic I 304 Sttl St. 327-7244 at Kronborg Castle in Den- mark. But it also had to be to go with the ballad and rock music composed by Cliff Jones of Toronto. So Hamlet appears on the Charlottetown stage in a black the tradition for the mourning close-fitting leggings and a silvery zipper open to show singer Cal Dodd's broad chest. Others in the cast appear in jump-suits. Shakespeare's original play calls for many changes of from castle to ban- queting to graveyard and to private chambers. For Jackson designed three pieces of stage-high sculptured walls and a rolling platform which can move smoothly from one position to another. Jackson said in an interview he wanted something modern about the texture of those sculptured pieces and found it in the concrete ribbing of a new office building. He reproduced the texture in foam and depended on stage lighting to give it added dramatic effect. From Jackson flew directly to Strat- ford to put the finishing touches on King the Shakespeare play written in tha lolo lIlOAe fno Irinn who died in 1216. This the decision was to do the play in traditional style of the early English history. So when the play goes on stage next Tuesday the au- dience is expecting to see dou- blets and ecclesias- tical robes sweeping to the and colors perhaps taken from old English manuscripts. Jackson was born in England and after his military in art colleges and with the Old Vic Theatre in London. He came to Canada in 1955 as head of the property department at the Stratford Festival. Since then he has made his home in in Van- couver where he was resident designer for the Playhouse Theatre in and Toron- to He moved to Ottawa recently because of the increasing activity of the National Arts and be- cause it's a convenient place to live for Canadian and foreign travels.

Canby .writes. Jay Gould in the Wall Street says the film has the humor characteristic of chiefly self-irony with Jews laughing at the Jews with an affec- tionate toleration. Jerry Oster of the Daily News writes that movie is so crowded with props and twists of plot that its portrait of a potentially interesting young creep is blurred and Howard Kissel of the Women's Wear Daily says Duddy Kravitz a sophis- enormously entertaining view of a Sticky just as of Bach and other classicals have weathered the passage of time. But he said with a tinge of sadness the big band era will never again enjoy the pop- ularity it had 30 years nor will a newcomer ever emerge capable of duplicating the great old sound. Mr. Venuti may be right on the second but as to a lack of interest in the big he may have been sell- ing the audiences of the '70s short. The swing era is but many of the dynamic bands which built it are still often bridging the gap between old and new music with an updated style More and there are instances of jazz societies spr- inging up in North America while looking ahead to progressive jazz as opposed to are also tending backward to the origins of the jazz of which the big band era is a part.
