Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, March 15, Joan Water field Newman, Redford good combination There's good news tonight. Paul Newman and Robert Redford are back together, reteamed for the first time since their runaway success in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. And in their second film together The Sting they prove the most inspired teaming since Edmund Lowe and Victor McLaglen turned up as Flagg and Quirt in What Price Glory? back in 1926. The Sting turns back the clock to 1936. In a country grayed by breadlines and soup kitchens there are still the boys skimming the cream from an economic cow just about gone dry Redford is a barn cat, a grifter working a handkerchief and wallet con" that keeps him in girl- and-gambling bucks till he- a numbers racket courier The take is too big. It prompts his partner Luther (Robert Earl Jones) into retirement, propels him into death. Hooker (Redford) and Luther have strayed into the territory of bigtime Irish mobster (Robert Shaw) who lays out a contract on the pair. Vengeful. Hooker teams with super-conman Henry i Newman) and a host of Luther's friends to take Shaw tor half-a-million dollars. It's beautiful. Laid out like a Saturday Evening Post serial from set up to sting. Maybe a chapter or two too long, but super entertainment as 'the mark' is hooked and ingeniously drawn through pride and greed to the bite And the cross current of con-and-contraci allows for enough plot twists with a great up-beat ending to send the audience home very happy indeed. There's a wealth of fine performances, from Eileen Brennan as a madam and Newman's mistress who fronts with a kiddies carousel; from Charles Durning as the "bunco" squad detective on the take and Dana Elcar as the federal agent wash in a sea of "skimmer" hatted G- men. And Robert Shaw, full of a great controlled rage and with a flat Irish accent that dispels for ever the charm of Barry Fitzgerald is a "mick" mobster out of the days of Dion O'Bannion. Then there are Redford and Newman What a pair of charmers. Redford is the challenger and while one can applaud his performance it must be admitted that it has to be viewed as highly intelligent, carefully put together to exploit the quick smile the nifty gesture. Newman, easy and smooth, is still the champ. Let's face it, you either dig Woody Allen or his brand of satire is not for you. If you're an Allen fan (if you're not you could be missing a lot so start working on it) his Sleeper is a joy He's writer, director and star of the wackiest comedy of the year And from his strange surreal mind has come slapstick, sight-gags and just plain sillieness enough to keep the audience rocking. Woody is "little chap" whose minor operation is parlayed into a 200-year deep freeze sleep. De-frosted he finds himself deep, in a devious plot to overthrow dissidents, and Diane Keaton a poetess IPLAINSMAN] HOTEL 4 I I Y Presents "BROWN SUGAR" from Winnipeg Monday thru Saturday Playing OLD ROCK N' ROLL and FUNKY ROCK N' ROLL j A 4 A I I J HOTEL Red Coach Lounge Preterits Nightly for your listening pleasure RON ROWE IN THE TAVERN "ANYTHING GOES" THUHS..

I'm still laughing at his description of Howard Cosell. right out of Clockwork Orange' "You Dirty Every impersonator, the most amateur or super-professional has had a go at Jimmy Cagney. A vaudeville dancer he made his first movie, Sinner's Holiday in 1930. Taking the last walk in Public Enemy, second banana with Joan Blondell to Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell in Bushby Berkly extravaganzas, Bottom in Midsummer Night's Dream, George M. Cohan in Yankee Doodle Dandy, gangster, cop song and darice man, his cocky walk and punchy personality made him a star in the era of great stars. Now he comes out of a dignified retirement to receive the American Film Institute's Life Achievement. The telecast (Ch. 13, p.m Thursday) is one for all moviebuffs, for younger moviegoers who may wonder what the great days of Hollywood were like and for all who would appreciate a great craftsman.

All to be eagerly anticipated, but a look backward to last Saturday, to the LCC's Harlequin Players production of The Fantasticks.
