Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Joan Waterfleid Friday, ociootr a, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Superstar: Sputter and spark Thus spake Norman Jewison: "1 will follow Cecil B. De Mille into the desert and there will be wrought there a miracle play for moderns. For there is with me a ready-made audience ol the young who feel that parents and leaders ol the state are blind, dumb and deaf to them. "Let there be added to their number the agin with-its and the frankly curious and the box-office will wax mightily." And so docs Mr. Jewison br- ing to the screen Jesus Christ, Superstar. Yet il might have been remembered by the director that the miracle play belongs in the market place. How stunningly effective could have been its transition to the screen, seen played against the lire-escapes, water hydrants and decaying brownstbnes of New York. Placed self-consciously on "the scene." the rock opera QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dentil Mechinle Cipllol Furniture Bldg. PHONE: 326-7084 offers more sputter than spark. Visual excesses overwhelm and consume what was communicated, and with some sincerity, by the original project. The idea of strolling players enacting the last days of Christ is right-on historically The dusty bus, the unpacking of props, the issue of minimal costume additions to jeans and muscle shirts fine! How ironic then to find Christ pictured as if fresh from a Victorian bible- bookmark how sad to see His disciples mere nonentities m a picnic put-on, complete with gestures caught in the frame, of Da Vinci's Last Supper. Even the musical score which so captured the im- agination in 1969 seems to have thinned, with lyrics that are too often doggerel What then is to be taken from a film that seems to offer only a sequence of numbers1' Carl Anderson. Who is simp- ly magnificent as Judas, in spile of on-rushing planes and planes and a final get-up that suggests Little Richard in his prime. Anderson's perfor- mance gives what the film as a whole lacks: something to ponder.

Yvone Elliman and "I don't know how to love Him" is in itself a revelation and there is a nice performance, curiously believable, by Philip Toubus But something honest is gone. It's lost in the quirky camerawork, in the camping- up of Herod's song, in the too real scourging. The shifts from the theatrical to the ab- surd to the reality of nail and blood are not only dis- concerting but in the final analysis rob us of the great "mystery." NEXT: Another film for Jewison whom its hard to forgive for the miracle of that bus (how did that many pack into and that last attenuated sunset with its silhouette of the cross. This time it's the Ord Wingate Story. General Wingate was a brilliant if erratic second World War military leader and has been described as a combination of Lawrence of Arabia and General Ration. It will be interesting to see what he'll make of that' McCALLUM: Sandy, that is. protege of Coaldale Little Theatre's Murray Robison, later discovered by Tyrone Guthrie at a provincial drama seminar in Olds. Latest news of Sandy comes in a review of his performance as the Fool in Lear at the Globe Theatre in San Diego Critic Jonathan Saville writes: as for Sandy McCallum. he has shown himself in the other two productions of this season's Shakespeare festival to be a superb comedian His Old Gobbo in Merchant of Venice is dehciously droll, his Sir Eglamour an entirely different sort of role in Two Gentlemen of Verona is elegantly courtly and absurd But I would never have ex- pected the deep wiy melancholy, the perfection of tone, the pathetic and ul- timately indescribable oddncss he brings to the role of the Fool. You simply must seo lum: you'll never forget this transcendant pertor- mance." High praise indeed, yet un- derstandable when one remembers his performance, with Peggy Mallalieu in Well of the Saints for Coaldale. It would be good though to see Sandy return to Canada, to Alberta, perhaps, with Citadel. Edmonton or Theatre Calgary LUCY: And a heartening gesture to the cast of Lethbndge Musical Theatre's Mame. A surprise gift of an autographed picture complete with good wishes from Lucille Ball who stars in the movie version. Lucy's costumes have been commented on earlier but those for the local production look to be truly outstanding with something like 17 changes lined up lor local star Nora Rose. A far cry from the distressed burlap which plagued the chorus of last year's Man of La Mancha. AHEAD: October 20-21 the annual operetta of Southminster junior Girls Choir. Only, for the first time in 20 years it won't be an operetta Director Anne Campbell bowed to the wishes of the youngsters and they will stage this year Joseph's Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. Special guests will be the Anne Campbell Singers and the Teen Clefs. The Singers will offer The Tale of a Mouse, The Teen Clefs The Grasshopper, with the Junior Girls in Fly away Crow.
