Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Joan Waterfield Friday, October 5, 1973-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-9 Superstar: Sputter and spark spake Norman Jewison: "I will follow Cecil B. De Mille into the desert and there will be wrought there a miracle play for moderns. For there is wilh me a ready-made audience of Ihe young who feel lhat parents and leaders of the stale are blind, dumb and deaf to them. "Let Ihere be added to their number Ihe agin wilh-ils and Ihe frankly curious and Ihe box-office will wax mightily." And so does Mr. Jewison br- ing to the screen Jesus Chrisl, Superstar. Yet it mighl have been remembered by Ihe director lhal Ihe miracle play belongs in Ihe market place. How stunningly effective could have been its transition to Ihe screen, seen played against the fire-escapes, water hydrants and decaying brownstones of New York. Placed self-consciously on "Ihe scene." Ihe rock opera QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Dtnul Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg. PHONE: 328-7084 offers more sputler lhan spark. Visual excesses overwhelm and consume whal was communicated, and with some sincerity, by the original project. The idea of strolling players enacting the last days of Chrisl is righl-on historically. The dusly bus, Ihe unpacking of props, Ihe issue of minimal coslume addilions lo jeans and muscle shirls fine! How ironic Ihen lo find Christ pictured as if fresh from a Victorian bible- bookmark, how sad to see His disciples mere nonentities in a picnic put-on, complete with gestures caught in the frame, of Da Vinci's Last Supper. Even Ihe musical score which so caplured Ihe im- aginalion in 1969 seems lo have Ihinned. wilh lyrics lhat are too often doggerel. What then is to be taken from a film thai seems lo offer only a sequence of numbers? Carl Anderson. Who is simp- ly magnificenl as Judas, in spite of on-rushing planes and planes and a final gel-up lhal suggests Little Richard in his prime. Anderson's perfor- mance gives what Ihe film as a whole lacks: somelhing lo ponder.

Yvone Elliman and "I don't know how to love Him" is in itself a revelalion 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 shifls from Ihe theatrical lo Ihe ab- surd lo Ihe reality of nail and blood are not only dis- concerting bul in the final analysis rob us of the great "mystery." NEXT: Another film for Jewison whom ils hard to forgive for the miracle of lhat bus (how did lhal many pack into and lhat last attenuated sunset with its silhouette of Ihe cross. This time it's Ihe Ord Wingate Story. General Wingale was a brilliant if erralic second World War military leader and has been described as a combination of Lawrence of Arabia and General Patton. It will be interesting to see what hell 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 deliciously 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 wry melancholy, the perfection of tone, the pathetic and ul- timately indescribable oddness he brings to the role of the Fool. You simply must see him: you'll never forget this transcendent perfor- 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 geslure to the cast of Lethbridge Musical Theatre's Mame. A surprise gift of an autographed piclure complete wilh 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 outslanding with something like 17 changes lined up for 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 Southtninster junior Girls Choir. Only, for Ihe firsl lime in 20 years il woh'l 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.

(AP) Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango In Paris has been nam- ed the worst movie of the year by the Harvard University Lampoon, a humor magazine. The Lampoon said only the flip of a coin gave that award to Last Tango In Paris instead of The Poseidon Adventure, which received "the very respectable consolation prizes of worst film of the century (for the century ending and worst performance by a cast in toto." The Lampoon chose nine other film5; as the worst of the year, in ii> ,-r: The Candidate. The Getaway. Sounder. Deliverance. Play It As It Lays. The Emigrants. What's Up. Man Of La Mancha and The Man. The magazine gave its Kirk Douglas award for the worst actor of the year lo Robert Hedford.
