Produced for only million, 11 has already gross- ed ?15 million. But don't go expecting Walt Disney type family entertain- ment. If tiiere's a lesson to be learned from Willard, now showing at the Paramount The- atre, it's that one can't be too careful about choosing one's friends. The friends in this case are rats hundreds of them. And despite a reasonably strong script and a more than credit- able performance by Bruce Da- vison as Willard, they steal the show. Willard is a 27 year old who is treated by his invalid mother and his boss as if he were about nine. His only es- cape is into a world where he is the boss, a world peopled (if that is the right word) by rats. He trains them and they be- come his allies in fighting the insensitive and cruel people who surround him. The end- ing, as it inevitably must be in this kind of a movie, is tragic. It is at times a gruesome and almost macabre movie, de- finitely not recommended for people who can't stand rats. The violence level is about av- erage for movies these days. Bruce Davison gives a sensi- tive performance as Willard. He manages the body move- ments of an insecure nine-year- old very well and resists the temptation to over-play the part of a man whose mind is just on the verge of coming completely apart. Willard fans will be hapyy to know a sequel entitled Ben is planned. leaves The Red Tenl (which has been shown in Leth- bridge, to small The Racing Scene and Peter Rabbit and the Tales of Beatrix Potter. The last film, a high- ly acclaimed ballet based on Miss Potter's children's stories, comes to the city next week. The lack of family films puts theatre operators in a tough spot. Bob Shaekleford of Leth- bridge Theatres Ltd. says the situation has reached the point where it really can't get much worse. Getting movies for the drive- in is a particular problem. Booking restricted adult mo- vies into the drive-in is out of the question, as it would elim- inate the youngsters the drive-in's biggest fans. This year Mr. Shaekleford found the distributors simp I y could not come up with enough good family films and he was forced to dip into some of the older movies. Stan Bates, CFCN-TV station manager, says the outlook is much the same for television. According to his figures there are 87 Hollywood movies pro- duced for theatres this year that fall into the general audi- ence category and which will be available for television. But the startling fact is that 90 feature length movies were produced specifically for tele- vision. It will be interesting to see what happens next. More re- stricted adult movies? More re- 1930s? A total to five films were runs of passed by the provincial motion picture censor board in August j as family entertainment. Two of them are German language films. That film classics of the i sons who paid to see thrre musicals Anne of One possible reaction may be, Green Gables, Mary and Jane turning away from movies j Eyre. and television, back to family activities such as handicrafts and music right in the home It may happen. Going back briefly to the een The O'Kcefc Centre in Tor- onto also had a good season. Katherine Hepburn, in Coco, was the big drawing card; the jorship board ratings only I brought in during the three films were classified as second of her engage- ment there, then went on to gross in the third and final week. The Royal Shakespeare Com- pany, the Canadian Opera and the National Ballet of Canada helped (along with other pro- ductions) to bring in adult fare. Fifteen got an "adult not suitable for chil- dren" rating. There were 10 re- stricted adult movies, including The Love Machine and Panic in Needle Park, a about drug users.

Organized by Bruce Barrow, the group as yet has no name, although it does have plans made for its first concert. The choir's debut will be in early December when it pre- sents Prelude to Clirislmas at the Yatcs Memorial Cen t r e. Comprising 25 picked voices, the mixed choir has another concert planned for the spring. The group is sponsored by the Downtown Rotary Club. Mr. Barrow, who resigned as or- ganist and choirmaster at St. Augustine's Anglican C h u r ch last year after coming to Leth- bridge to take up that post in 1951, continues to teach music in the city. A new local television series Reese and Friends starts tonight at on Chan- nel 7. A test film for the series (made mostly just to test mi- crophone placements and other details) accidentally got on the air last week. The show's real debut is slated for tonight. Theatre Calgary's first play of the season opens a three- week run next Thursday at the Allied Arts Centre. The play is Neil Simon's Pla- za Suite, starring Donald Davis and Rita Howell. Although un- able to bear the cost of taking a play on the road, the com- pany is looking for a regional audience. It is offering a group rate (10 per cent off) to groups of six or more who have to travel 25 miles or more to attend. Theatre Calgary's season will include Brendan Behan's The I Hostage, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and a new Canadian play James Nichol's The House on Chestnut Street. Along with some Shaw and Molnar and Richard Nash's The Rain- maker, it looks like a well- balanced schedule of plays. Reports from across Canada would seem to indicate theatre generally is in pretty good shape. The Charlottetown Fes- tival ended its 10 week sea- son with new box office rec- ords. The festival drew per- people and million during ihc 46-week season. Note for radio has a number of new shows lined up for this fall. One of the big changes takes place Monday when Pclcr Gzowskie takes over as the host of This Country in the Morning. Gone is which has helped fill the morning hours for the past few years. Bruno Gerussi has moved to the west coast to act in a television se- ries, but will continue to con- tribute the odd feature to the new show, which will be some- thing of a combination of Ger- ussi! and Matinee.
