The rah a "sleeper" for the weekend movie at the Algona last week. Africa, Texas Style is a current release (May 1967) and features Hugh O'Brian, John Mills and "bad-man", Nigel Green, in a technicolor, African jungle film which shows some very unusual shots of "roaring" wild animals in their native habitat. There is even a plot in this exciting, well directed and expertly "shot" picture which concerns the problem of domesticating wild animals to feed the hungry natives who are decimating the animal population. There is the usual "western" fight between the cattle men and sheep men, in this case the cattle men and wild animals. Do I make myself Clear? Never mind, the details are unimportant. The important thing about Africa, Texas Style, is the wild animal angle and the dangers and exciting experience of trying to "rope" them. The Motion Picture Herald sums it up as follows: in this vehicle, even if all the jokes don't come off—If the screenplay at ttmes seema a bit contrived, the seven kida a little too cute at times and the dialogue predictable, etc, etc." I'd go a bit further—its one of the most tiresome, poorly written, and thorough* ly uninspired motion pictures. I've seen in many a moon. How they could talk a number one comic, (Bob Hope) into such a bunch of rubbish, is beyond me. And, in my book, including Phyllis Diller in the cast, is adding insult to injury. Sometimes, when 1 look ait some of the awful comedy routines on TV, I wonder if my sense of humor is a little warped, especially when the applause comes on loud and clear. But I'll stand by my 'guns and protect my rej tion for what it's worth. UI ft Servicemen ............ » ......... tense action, some remarkable camera work and the always intriguing fend- scape of Africa. The photography, unquestionably a dangerous feat amid the close-up actions of charging animals is suburb." There you have it folks, this ought to pull you away from your commercial infested TV sets with their tiresome "reruns". Now That Eight On The Lamb, has departed (with litr tie regret on my part) I can safely level my "both barrels" on this atrocious film. The Motion Picture Herald, being a trade publication, always softens its review and gives it a "very good" rating. But it "back pedals" with, and I quote, "There are some bright and funny moments COMPLETES COURSE FT. MONMOUTH, N. J. (AHTNC) — Specialist Four Kenneth D. Durant, 22, son o f Mr and Mrs. Milo R.
