Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta nini'iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimtf111"'!"1"-'1- Joan Waterfield NTERTAINMENT LYE E IT would probably amuse Sttnely Baker, an actor-director of estimable worth, to find his Innocent Bystanders topping the theatre marquee Above the unnamed second feature. Especially since the anonymous second billing was for Vittorio De Sica's masterful The Garden of the Flod-Contln-to. Well, Mr. Baker's work will have to wait for its viewing; "Finzl-Continis" requires that it be seen alone, without companion feature or distracting short. The film deals with the historical tragedy of Jewish-Italians at the close of the thirties, the gradual erosion of their rights as citizens to the final round-up which is handled with a correctitude, infinitely more chilling lhan S.S. strongarm-ing. , In this large framework is placed a few months (allowing for flashbacks) in the lives of two Jewish families of Ferrara. One is comfortably middle class, aware of the growing azfi-Semitism, yet with a father willing to compromise rather than face reality. The Finzi-Contiriies, on the other hand, have long retreated from a distasteful world, enjoying their fine books, paintings, family retainers behind the walls of their magnificent estate. As the film opens, it seems to be the springtime of life. The camera lingers lyrically on the fresh clear colours of the garden, the spotless tennis whites of the young people gathered for an afternoon on the court, Never have the young seem-ed so artlessly beautiful. But the odor of decay has already beset the garden. It is in the hint of incest between Ml col Finjd-Oomini and her brother Alberto, in his wasting illness and his relationship with a male friend, in the.unrealized court ship of Giorgio. Micol (Dominique San-da) Is doomed. Her tragedy is not that she is Jewish and it is 1938. It has little to do with the maelstrom that is engulfing Italy outside the enchanted garden, the banner-waving rushes to hear H Duce, the Nazi flag in the bicycle basket, the war oi nerves waged in anonymous phone calls to Jewish homes. It is played against the dark drama outside climaxing in final breakdown of the grandmother (Inn Alexeis) in Micol's arms, a moment that is unbearably painful in this beautiful film. De Sica has made the film at almost too leisurely a pace but this is justified in an impact that lingers for many hours. And his handling of his actors Lino Capolicchio (Giorgio), Helmut Berger (Alberto) and the stunning. Miss Sanda is achlngly acute. The Garden of the Fintt-Continls is a treasure that catches a vanished time and people.    RODEO: Cliff Robertson may have won an Academy award, yet the reaction of most moviegoers is generally "Cliff Who?" However Mr. Robertson is not facing an identity crisis. He comes on strong as actor-director-writer-producer of J. W. Coop and does very nicely in- Now!

In the title role he is a cowboy on the comeback trail after years in jail, arid the la-comic Robertson style works well in conveying the alienation from contemporary society. His eye is acute for the dusty trail, the small western town and the people of the rodeo circuit. Let's hope this talented man gets free rein to direct again.    CUT-UP: Shirlee Gordon of The Albertan has already lambasted the powers-that-be for the commercial crunch laid on Camelot. A similar affront was served the National Theatre of Britain's production of Eugene O'Neils's Long Day's Journey Into Night. It well behooves the viewer to write sponsors applauding their good taste in commercial insertion or cirtizing, as in this case, a crassness that was insulting to the production and those watching. Not that the transition of the O'Neill masterpiece to the small screen was that successful. This grimily obsessive play, even in the hands of Olivier and Cummings, is too large for the small screen. That is why television Is not the threat to theatre originally envisioned. Indeed it is supportive, creating a desire for direct involvement in the human situation that only the theatre can offer. *   MOVIES: In town, The Poseidon Adventure which is packing them in everywhere and has Shelley Winters, 20 pounds overweight challenging for the Academy's best supporting actress award; The already-reviewed and excellent Deliverance; On Channel 7, two for movie buffs and the debut performances of two great ladies of the screen, Katherine Han-burn and John Barrymore in Bill of Divorcement (1932) and Ingrid Bergamn and Leslie Howard and the original Intermezzo (1936); and at the uni- LABOR CLUB CORNER 2nd AVE. and 13th ST.

She said outside the courtroom she was not satisfied her son died of an Overdose of drugs. Testimony at the first inquest last month indicated Whiting apparently fell' and hit his head. Reynolds testified that it was "about 9:30 or 10" the morning after the alleged beating when Miss Miles returned to her room, found Whiting dead, and summoned Reynolds. He said Whiting was lying on the. floor, "in an awkward position with his hand bent up behind him with a plastic pill bottle tightly girpped in one band." "Pills were scattered everywhere," he said. Reynolds said they called police a short time later. Miss Miles sobbed as she described Whiting as a "man who had fits of depression" and who once had tried to commit suicide in England.
