J-roni (Centre lOowmati PUSSYCAT, Pussycat, I Love You, is an Italian made love story with not much love and a great deal of silliness. The sets are flamboyant; so are the costumes. Now if direc- tor writer Rod Amateau had only found a reason for putting people in among them, Pussy- cat might offer more than a remedy for insomnia. The story of a young Roman couple, notably of the husband and his philaiiderhigs, the mo- vie scrambles about from dim- witted satire to non gag lines, dotted among scenes of un- dressings and re-dressings. When even the director's eye senses all is not well, he brings in his triple threat: John Gavin. Mr. Gavin, who in Hollywood used to play the page to Rock Hudson's Good King Wences- las, has come a long way in act- ing p r o w e s s. He used to say lines as if they were entombed in porridge. Now he arches an eyebrow every so often. The timing of this flourish may be imcomprehensible, but, I mean, can Lassie arch an eyebrow? This Pussycat should have done what most Romans do: stayed in Rome. Jean Simmons won an Aca- demy Award nomination lor her starring role in The Happy Ending. She lost out (to Maggie and it's rather a shame. She should have at least won a congressional Medal of Honor for service above and beyond the standard of this acerbic mo- vie. The movie, which appeared earlier this week at the College Mall Cinema, concerns a mid- western housewife who after 15 years of marriage is getting through nuptial blitz on pills and booze. Her husband (John-Forsyte) loves her; there are no money problems. But marriage Denver style is getting her down. Eventually she ducks out for an unan- nounced trip to Nassau where she meets an old school friend and the friend's married boy- friend. (It's that kind of movie: the eternal vows of marriage arc taken as licences to Along the way she encoun- ters a burnt-out male who leads her down that well known path he realizes she's not rich. Result: She walks by the ocean, she wades in the surf, she is Free. In a kind of updated nod to Nora of Ibsen's The Doll's House, the wife returns to her home city, but not to her fam- ily. She lives by herself, gets a job in a department store and takes night courses. "Don't you eve. get her husband asks her. "Yes, very, but not as lonely as when we were she says. If there is any valid message to the film it is that one: that marriage can spawn the most virulent form of loneliness. What frustrates the movie is, first, its interminable length, and second, that it offers no trenchant reason for tire wife's unhappiness. Mother's Day SMORGASBORD JOHNSON'S of ST.

But no reason is underlined, and it causes (lie movie to be nebulous and completely insuf- ficient (in much the same way that The Rain People Jean Simmons, always a tal- ented actress, has played simi- lar roles before, almost as if she were taking up the slack in "women's pictures" where Lana Turner and Susan Hay- ward left off. This portrayal isn't so different that it war- ranted a nomination. As for director Richard Brooks (Miss Simmons' hus- he treats marriage as if it were utterly ugly. He keeps pounding away at it, and parti- cularly at women. Men may fool around, but women, in their desperate attemptto stay young, are stupid and disgust- ing. Mr. Brook's view of marriage is too unhappy and inhumane to be acceptable. NOTES: I finally saw the Raqucl Welch Special last Sat- urday on television. Miss Welch seems to be in a special league, as far as some men are con- cerned. They figure criticism of her b; a woman must eman- ate from jealousy. Be that as it may, Miss Welch has a fine frame grant her but she sure could do with tal- ent for something more than walking and breathing. See Ra- qucl answering questions in de- mure wittiness. See her siding, hear her sing flat, see her try to charm an apparently disin- terested John Wayne. Actually the best thing that could be said for the special was immortal- ized in One Million Years, BC, a movie of pre historic tribes starring Miss Welch. Said Ha- quel in a deathless phrase: "Hooga Booga Munga Bunga." Theatre Calgary is asking subscriptions now for its 1970-71 season.
