His current group is the Lancia Team, composed of members of the world champion Italian Blue Team and other top flight Europeans. Sharif, an international bridge star since 1964, when he was captain of the Egyp- tian team in the World Bridge Olympiad, said "from time to time I will write about games with the stars of the several worlds of bridge, society and the movies. But mostly I will try to convey to our readers the way to have real fun play- ing bridge." The audience is willing, wanting and waiting to laugh as Sidney Poitier and Harry Belafonte, who teamed previously in Buck and the Preacher, join Bill Cosby in a comedy revolving around the search for a winning lottery ticket. And in Uptown Saturday Night, somewhere between Cosby and ho hum Poitier, a real hoot of a movie could have been found. It might have been an all black "Sting" but peppered as it is with comedians whose regular stand up routines clock five laughs a minute, it's wound- down by the sheer weight and numbers of com- ics. The story line is certainly cute. Taxi driver Cosby and steel worker Poitier get together for a super night on the town. At Madam Zenobias, a classy joint for high tone dudes with a fast moving crap game "behind the red door" Cosby hits a winning streak. But a hi jack of the club not only picks up the loot but Poitier's wallet with the lottery ticket. So far so good. The chase is on via Sharp Eye (Richard Pr- Geechie Dan (Harry Belafonte) in "Godfather" face putty, and Silky Slim (Calvin And so should be the fun once the audience is freed from what Allied Arts Council EXHIBITION of PAINTINGS from the Buchanan Collection Bowman Arts Centra Gallery Oct. 26th Nov. 22 Open Men. thru Fri. 2 to p.m. Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. Belafonte calls "the linguistic But Poitier is not only split in his roles of star and direc- tor, but in his approach to his vehicle. There's warmth at the level of Rosalind Cash as Poitier's wife countered by Flip Wilson in his regular routine as the impoverished preacher always ready to pass the money plate. Cash's reality sits ill with Wilson who builds his humor on exaggeration of old black life styles. Cosby, now, is with Cash because he does not mind the ethnic laugh lode. But Poitier locks in to the eye ball rolling, foot -'shuffling yassuh man, the image of everything the modern black wants to wipe out. And while the Sting had the Bedford Newman combina- tion up front, its real strength was in its great collection of unknown faces in matchless character .studies. The weakness of Uptown is in too many "well known's" com- ing across as Charles Bronson currently seen in the second rate suspenser Mr. Majestyk has made his reputation and his fortune as a granite faced killer in European quickies; Now in Death Wish he is getting the type of critical reaction that used to greet his "supporting" roles in American made movies. Here's Judith Crist on Death Wish: "What makes this fantasy work is the superb performance of Charles Bronson complemented by that of Vincent Gardenia and of every member of the cast. The breathtaking denouement and tidy twist resolution will satisfy every base instinct "we liberals are heir too." Sounds like a crackerjack, but be warned that it is brutal- ly explicit in many sequences, and the audience reaction to its sense of urban justice may cause considerable anger. Live on stage this week, another production from the Lethbridge Community College's Harlequin Players. Director Betty Sorenson has chosen excellent material for her players, Charlie Brown in 1972, The Fantastick's in 1973. This year it's Aesop's Fallables, a rock musical spoof of the famous tales, The quality of the prior productions offers promise of another fine show. Opening its run at the Yates, it will travel out to schools in Magrath, Pincher Creek and Taber. But what about our city schools? The offer was made but as in the case of Theatre Calgary Caravan's "Richard there has been no reac- tion. Is the thinking that the local kids can find their theatre at the Yates? Surely there is a realization that many families just don't have the bucks to go to the Yates. And the fact should be faced that interest created by ex- posure within the schools will create audiences and large audiences will keep ticket prices down. forward to the season and pan- Looking Christmas tomime, the one show in the year that families will attend en bloc. This year it will be Cinderella, as always written, choreographed and directed by Muriel Jolliffe. Now a great local theatrical tradition it has been spon- sored since its inception by the Allied Arts Council which in the face of mounting costs is still fighting the battle to keep ticket prices low and offer theatre for everyone. And still an opportunity to see professional theatre as Citadel Theatre returns to the boards tomorrow evening with their production of "The Deadline precludes com- ment on Thursday's perfor- mance but two hundred years have not diminished the lustre of Sheridan's work and local support will enhance oppor- tunities for future professional companies to visit the south.
