Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Frenchmen not aware Film-making flourishing in France TiMMJay, October 15, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 7 PLENTY OF CHOICE Moscow has more than restaurants, cafeterias and cafes. By VINCENT CANBY New York Times Service NEW 5 Frenchmen may not know it, but film-making is flourishing in France. That, at least, is the impression given by the selection committee for the 12th New York film festival now in progress here. Of the 21 programs, eight are French, including Jean-Pierre Melville's 1949 film adapta- tion of Jean Cocteau's "Les Enfants Ternbles." Because the festival's two entries by Jacques Rivette add up to 7Vz hours of film is 4Va hours and "Celine and Julie Go Boating" is 3Vz one might be able to prove that the French are occupying almost 50 per cent of the festival's total screen time. Which seems like a lot of time to devote to the films of one country when the United States and England are represented by only one entry each and Russia by none. However, the first two French films seen indicate that the selection committee could have done a lot worse. The opening night spot, which in the past has been given to films by directors of the Order My only Promise onOct. is to bo your servant not your master, and to serve you hon- ourably and hon- estly if Eloctod.

"Don't Cry With Your Mouth his second feature, is not exactly a revelation but because of the directors whose work it recalls (Renoir, Truffaut, the film evokes im- portant heritages. It's almost as if the festival felt that since it's now in its 12th year, it ought to show us what the youngsters have learned from their elders "Don't Cry With Your Mouth Full" is a pastoral comedy of today (which some might consider to be f riviolous if not downright contradiction in terms) about one summer in the life of a robust 15-year- old girl growing up in a small Actress back in hospital ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) Actress Susan Hayward has been admitted to hospital for further treatment of an un- disclosed condition, authorities said today. In July, Miss Hayward was released from the hospital after undergoing a biopsy to determine if she had a brain tumor. Her physician said test results were confidential.

Annie, beautifully played by Annie Cole, an actress with a remarkable ability to appear simultaneously cheerful, self- absorbed, and loving, is as ripe as the landscape she inhabits. She loves one young man, who leaves to do his military service; but without any fuss she gives her virginity to another young man, more or less because she feels it's time and because he makes her laugh. Bernard Menez plays this role with great comic effect, coming across as a sort of fussy, fraudulent Don Juan. The second French film seen at the festival was Louis Malle's fine, tough, unsen- timental drama, "Lacombe, Lucien." The film arrives here hav- ing already been labelled unfortunately, I think a masterpiece in Paris It's a beautifully considered, com- plex, disquieting film but I think to go around calling it a masterpiece may well set up audiences to expect something they aren't going to get, something more finished, more like a last word on an important subject Malle's film really isn't great enough to be a masterpiece It's almost open-ended. "Lacombe, Lucien" is about a strong-shouldered, none-too- bright, 17-year-old French farmboy who joins the gestapo in a small provincial town just four months before the collapse of the German oc- cupation of France in Oc- tober, 1944. Thus, for a few swaggering months he enjoys the power and the prestige of the conquerors paramount DAVID SCHURMANN, MARGARET BARTON STARS OF THE RIVALS' Citadel Theatre play at Yates Oct. 24-26 TONIGHT thru SATURDAY "ASHTON COURT" AT THE INERS 733- 13th St North Members and Invited Guests Only!

Sheridan bought an interest in the Drury Lane Theatre in 1776 and gave up writing in 1779 He was elected to Parlia- ment in 1780 and his interest in theatre declined as his interest in politics increased. He did renovate the theatre in 1791, but was mined when it burned to the ground in 1809. He died in 1816. The Citadel cast includes David Schumann as Captain Absolute, Richard Parrington as Sir Lucius OTrigger and the coachman and Margaret Barton as Mrs. Malaprop.

They nearly wrecked his house, but Seow is convinced they did the job. Seow's wife, Khor Ah Kiew, said her husband was delirious for several months with an ail- Congress to meet shortly TOKYO (AP) Vice- Premier Teng Hsiao ping of China says the fourth national people's congress will be call- ed shortly. Kyodo news ser- vice reported here from Peking. Teng made the disclosure to a group of Japanese ex- ecutives of newspapers af- filiated with Kyodo in Peking's Great Hall of the People. Kyodo added The agenda of the congress might include naming a new defence minister and a new president of replace Liu Shao chi ousted as a "capitalist roader" during China's cultural revolution in (he late 19605 Convening the congress has been delayed. Kyodo (footed Teng as saying, because of the country wide dnve to dis- credit former defence minister Lin Piao and the an- cient Chinese sage Confucros. ment that doctors and hospitals in the northern city of Ipoh were not able to cure. Finally, the 64-year-old merchant decided the trouble was evil spirits, and his 55 year old wife sent for the media. From all over Perak state they came, in six cars. The plan was that the media would ferret out the spirits, flght them and place them in bottles, which they would throw in the sea 20 miles away. As scores of neighbors watched, they dog holes in the floor to get to spirits hiding there. They rushed upstairs and down, screaming and gesticulating, for about four hours, damaging furniture and fittings. They set up three tables in front of the house to burn crates of red Chinese prayer papers. Some went into and one fell into a drain, pushed, he said, by evil spirits He emerged un- harmed. "My husband is having good sound sleep for the first time in Mrs. Seow said. "It has worked."
