The bestseller, which recount- ed the personal problems of an airport's staff and customers, and the plight of a bomb-dam- aged plane, was a press release mixed with a story of Sloan- Wilson depth. Everytimt- the plot started to move, Zap! back to air traffic control or the runway cleaning depart m e n t for technical ex- planations. The movie, starring Dean Martin and Hurt Lancaster, mercifully takes a leaner look at the story the marital pec cadilloes of pilots, stewardesse. managers and customers, one o whom plans to destroy the plane so his wife can pick up a hugi insurance policy. What is astonishing about the film is that such poor actng should have been allowed to ge on the screen. Jean Sebcrg as an airline's public relations chief, can't act worth a plugged fuselage. Martin, a pilot with a stewardess on the side, eman- ates concern by looking as ii someone had added too much mix. Helen Hayes could have swept the board clean with a crisp, underplayed portrayal ol a wily, aged stowaway. Instead she's all obviousness. The movie spends half its time introducing a myriad of char- acters and bogs down in explan- ations of creaky marriages, the pregnancy of an unmarried wo- man, and intimations of new re- lationships among the unhappy. It is only when the damaged airplane, fighting snow and fac- ing a closed airstrip that inter- est arises. Even then director Iloss Hunt- er never suggests when he can roundhouse. A priest, crossing himself as the plane wobbles for home finishes the action with a slap across the face of a whin- ing fellow passenger. It's a cheap joke, about as cheap as the piles of snow which descend on the airport during the film. There's hardly a flake of it that's believable. (It looks like sand with a dye It must be galling to the wel- ter of leads Jacqueline Bis- set, Maureen Staplcton, Dana Wy liter, Van Heflin, George Kennedy that Airport 'gets off (he ground only when the plane does. The Adventurers is one of those men's magazine stories (The Island Where Every Wo- man's Available, Devil's Woman) dumped on the screen. Based on Harold Bobbins' no- vel, the movie de- pends on the ancient idea that a man who can't love should make a lifetime out of doing the next best thing: trying. You don't make love to a wo- man. You make love at a wo- man, says an orgy mate to the hero, Bekin Fehmiu. To Bobbins, that's enough ex- cuse to have Fehmiu, as. the confused native of an embat- tled southern American repub- lic, try out every woman he msels. According to The Adventur- ers, all women capable of say- ing no are living outside this galaxy. Fehmiu, as Dax Xen'os, sees his mother raped and gets his revenge by helping a new lead- er take over the country. He leaves after the murder of his father, and removes him- self to Europe, three marri- ages and a run up the bed- ladder of wealth. .As a straight adventure story, The Adventurers has its inter- esting but it clearly junches out sex and violence :or boxoffice appeal. There's an embarrassing love scene with Olivia De Havilland, who is a more intelligent ac- cess with her clothes on. Can- licp. Bergen, as a poor little girl, has her first love af- air in deep red lighting effects and to the tune of fireworks. Srnest Borgnine lumps in for out of blootl-and-Iust books, and probably The Adventurers w pull in a pile too. Today t book and movie are call entertainment. In better time they might .be charged seduction with intent to rob.

CFCN's Color Cove, the five-part color show on Whoop- Up Days, lias been pretty hard to hack through. The two-hour daily program, with co-hosts Joan Watcrfield and Stan Bales, loses pertenancy because the cameras are stuck on the sta- tion's stage and near environs on the fair grounds. There are no shots of the exhibits, the midway or the youth coffee- house, shots which would give the shows more flavor of the surroundings. And some of the interviews have been a series of answers separated by inane questions. The resident Teleswingers, Barbara Barker, and local guests, plus the Klaas Graats group relieves the tedium somewhat, but not enough to make viewers stock through 120 minutes every day. riday, juiy 54, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HEUAID MINUS ONE REGULAR DANCE Saturday, July p.m. POLISH HALL MUSIC BY THE WESTERNERS MEMBERS AND INVITED GUESTS PHONE 327-1448 NEW PATRIARCH MOSCOW (AP) Russian Orthodox Church officials will assemble next May to elect a iuccessor to Patriarch Alexei vho died April 18.
