AlfMM MOMDAV f~~r~_rf~IBP^% f i We western dnemaaddiets in. coming into out own again-after a long and protracted "dry spell", with the •ppeaftnce of two outstanding "cpw operas". 1 mention Wif Wagon, which has just completed what 1 hope was » successful (and profitable) run at the local theatre, While basically the sama at the former "classics", High Noon and Shane to name but two, these latter entries move along a slightly different vein. There is a welcome touch of humor, for example, which mty or may not be a bit corny, according to your taste, but it is refreshing at least. War Wagon, was based on a historical event, the introduction of the famed Catling Gun, named after an American inventor and "which consisted of a cluster of barrels, usually ten, revolving by a crank and loaded and fired once each, during the revolution of the group." While this historical event 1 may or may not have followed the plot of the present, War Wagon, it is interesting to note that it is at least a fair example of what might have happened. Getting back to the original premise, since western movies occupy a favored spot in all TV channels, they ALGONA ENDS. WED. JULY 19th Be on the lookout for these desperate characters!

While in Minneapolis recently, I was thrilled with the latest contribution to the current revival of the west' ern, Eldorado, with John Wayne, again the "lead" and Robert Mitchum as the supporting actor. There was even a rather tender love story involved between the "shootin" and enough laughs to relieve the tension. As I said at the beginning, we western fans should welcome the return of the "cow opera" with their wide vistas of rolling prairies, their sure and quick "draw" heros 'and their low-down, sneaking bad men. At least, it's a pleasant change from sex. While I'm on the subject of sex, the latest film depicting the vagrancies of our sexual mores is a comedy called, A Guide for the Married Man, with Walter Matthau, Robert Morse, inger Stevens in the leads and an imposing cast of supporting players, including Jack Benny, Jan« Mansfield, Phil Silvers, Ben Blue and many/many others. Despite a questionable theme or plot, the film is done in good taste and with remarkable direction by Gene Kelly. Next to the Russians Are Coming, which was a riot last year, I would nominate Guide for the Married Man as the comedy triumph of 1987, so far, at least, and not likely to be overtaken. If you can't wait to see it on the local screen, its currently on view at the Downtown World in Minneapolis. And even if you see it there, I'm sure you'll want to repeat it again at the Algona. Speaking of current releases, Up the Down Staircase, just opened at the State theatre in Minneapolis, and is scheduled for local showing Sunday thru Wednesday, July 30 to August 2, which is further proof that we are getting our fair share of what the movies have to offer. 5-Gonorations A family reunion was held recently in Hedrick to celebrate the golden wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. „ Lester .Smith. • Great-great- igi^ndinother;: ;^Mrs.: Iteyid * Wolf,"Wihfiel'd;* her daughter 1 , Mrs. Lester Smith, Hedrick; Mrs. Smith's son, Dale, Pekin; Dale's son, Terry, Hedrick and Terry's son, Ricky represented the five generations of lowans present.
