Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Little Prince cute, harmless musical film By VINCENT CANBY New York Times Service NEW YORK Stanley Donen's first musical film in years.

"What is essential is invisi- ble to the and "it's only with the heart that one can see clearly" are two of its zingers. I wouldn't go so far as to call this level of anti- intellectualism dangerous and reactionary. I suspect it's harmless and no more simplistic than a lot of the stuff that is so piously pronounced in The Trial of Billy Jack. Yet where The Trial of Billy Jack is just more of the same Billy Jack that we know enough about to avoid if we want to, The Little Prince is an important disappointment. It's a disappointment because the subject matter a fable about a neurotic aviator and the extra terrestrial boy who teaches him about life and love is not the sort of thing designed to bring out the best in Donen. He's a bright, clever, sophisticated director (Seven Bridges for Seven Brothers, Singin' In the Rain, Two for the Road) whose talent looks strained, most phony really, when he wants to be most sim- ple and sincere. "The LittleTrince seems to have beer, as fated for foolish results from the start as Marie Antoinette's attempts to get close to the soil by dressing up as a milkmaid at the Little Trianon. Yet The Little Prince is not without importance and deserving of our attention, if only aural. It is the first new musical score by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe since Camelot and their first original film score since Gigi "New" may be a somewhat misleading word. The Lerner (lyrics) and Loewe (music) collaboration hit its stride in the mid-1950's with My Fair Lady and the team is still writing in that style melodic, romantic, and witty in the way of writers for whom words are as much shape and sound as meaning. DELIGHT The score of The Little Prince is a sheer delight, a recollection of kind of exper- tise that is. in its way. as ageless as Chaplin's. I wouldn't be at all surpris- ed if some of the same people who found Chaplin's A Countess from Hong Kong old- fashioned, simply because he dared make a movie that wasn't according to contem- porary fashions, will also call The Little Prince score old fashioned. However, it's a throwback to a Broadway idiom that Lerner and Loewe still know best.

Linda Harrison Zanuck, 29, a film actress, asked for a court order restraining her husband, 39, son of former Hollywood tycoon Darryl Zanuck, from getting in touch with her or her spiritual ad- viser. She said that when she left Zanuck last September because she was afraid of him, Zanuck went with a friend to the Risen Christ Foundation of Vincentii Turriziani. Mrs. Zanuck, who filed for divorce from her husband two months ago after five years of marriage, called Turriziani her "minister and spiritual adviser." Zanuck, former president of his father's 20th Century-Fox studio, was fired by his father. He now is an independent pro- ducer. Mrs. Zanuck claimed that her husband punched and kick- ed the guru, smashed a statue and struck him on the head with it.

The automaker is expected to close all but one of its six auto assembly plants, idling almost assemblers. One source said plans are to shut the plants from Dec. 2 to Jan. 6. Those shutdowns might force layoffs throughout the Chrysler system, sources said, throwing another 50.000 or more workers off the job. Chrysler would neither con- firm nor deny the reports, but a source who asked not to be identified said the firm ordered "zero" parts from suppliers for next week STUDY SLEEPING SICKNESS Nearly 140 experts met in London to discuss the latest progress in research into one of the world's greatest sleeping sickness.
