I IKE Albec's Wno's Afraid of Virginia The Buys ill Hie Haml tickles the [uiiny bones while lacerating the mind. "You show me a happy homo- sexual and I'll show you a gay says one character, in a line which distills the witty acridity of the movie. A profile of the desperate, self loathing lives of homosexuals, the film slates its case with rare perception: the homosex- ual lives as an exile in his own country and blames himself for the banishment. A stiletto longued New York- er (Kenneth Nelson) holds a birthday party for his hated and feared close friend (Leonard Invited to attend are five other homosexuals, ranging from the muscle bound dunce to the sweetsy hipswinger. Unexpectedly turning up is a former school mate, a "straight" married man whom the host suspects of being a "closet queen." What started out to be a binge among friends turns into vi- cious group dissection. The host forces his guests to play a game in which each must telephone a person with whom he was once in love. Although he tries to maintain control, it is the host, who is overturned in an avalanche of truths he could not face before and still cannot master. Originally an off Broadway and London hit. The Boys in the Band touches on all the cruel aspects of the homosexual's life: his over reliance on youth and good looks and his panic at get- ting old; the use of drugs, booze and pills; the promiscuity; the plight of the married man who surrenders to his latent homo- sexuality; the bitchy jokes told at I he jokester's expense. The movie asks no quarter for homosexuals. It goes beyond the harshness of biblical injunction or a question of whether or not the state has any place in the nation's bedrooms. It creates the landscape of men for whom any penalty so- ciety might mete out through law would be second-hand. The harshest punishment they exact themselves. The Swimming a Flench jet set murder and mush movie starring Alain Dc- lon and Romy Schneider ran for two days at the Paramount Theatre. It finished yesterday. Let's hear it for Thursdays, it NOTES: The Lethbridgc Com- munity College's closed circuit radio station, CLCC, went on the air with five hours daily of pro- gramming last week Letlibrldge Tccn Clefs The got favorable reception last week when they taped a CBC radio show in Calgary. The 18 girls, with conductor Anne Campbell and piano accompan- ist Jeffrey Caiman taped the program between two rounds of the satirical Funny You Should Say That. It is not known when the Teen Clefs' segment will be run on the national radio net- work. It was obvious from the amount of applause by the aud- ience at the University of Cal- gary Theatre that the group is gaining in fame, which undoubt- edly will be enhanced when they appear in December for their second annual show at the Calgary jubilee auditorium A three week exhibition of works by Ted JIagcll Lethbridge artist who died in 1064, was shown last month at the B.C. Provincial Museum in Vic- toria. It was apparently the lar- gest and most comprehensive collection of his art, examples of which can be seen in the Lethbridgc SUelcli Club's collec- tion at the Bowman Arts Cen- tre Oh! the rock musical which has played to critical disgust and large ticket sales, will be shown in Edmon- ton Tuesday on a national clos- ed circuit TV hook-up. Since it is not a movie, provincial cen- sors cannot get their scissors on it. However a change of ob- scenity could be laid by the morality squad after the show- ing. Tickets cost each (and will be handed out in plain brown HADIO: CIIEC-AM has been his 53 weeping violins. Instead the station is offering more mid- dle of the road music, more vocal selections and the less raucous numbers from the rec- ord charts. This is the rule up to 10 night- ly when AM merges with CHEC- FM and acid rock wreaks its unfettered vengeance. The better easy listening sound of AM, however, is not to be confused with the after- noon and evening news reading which features pauses in the middle of one-syllable words. Every so often the Herald re- ceives a telephone call from someone frothing at the mouth over the Phone liiil Show on CJOC radio. Criticisms usually centre around the two hosts' prejudices, bad man- ners or mistakes of information. The daily morning show is often guilty of these failings. Callers themselves are just as often to blame for their ten- dency to repeat the same argu- ment ad ridiculum or give ar- guments which have never seen the light of logic. But these criticisms aside, the Phone Bill Show should, in my opinion, be retained at all costs. The public has little enough hold on the media. All the mass media, including TV which has no such public vent as the phone in shows, can distort their news at the whims or in- competence of editors and re- porters. Such shows (and let- ters to the editor) are the last I means for an individual to get producing a better sound these mass attention. Even though days, notably in its music. radio and neKSpapers can and Mercifully disappearing rehearsal, which lasted three hours, "a miracle." There is still room in the orchestra for more strings and southern Alberta residents can do their bit by buying mem- berships for the 1970-71 season. It would be a shame to let all that spirit go without fair-sized audiences.
