After a honeymoon to Yellowstone park and the Black Hills, they are at home in Algona. The text for this weekly movie sermon is Violence. While an exhaustive survey of the subject would be impractical or even impossible for this limited column, we might skim the surface since it is such a moot question today. First of all, I think war is the chief cause of civilian violence and because wars have been continuous with the history of the human race, it follows that we will have an increasing amount of violence. The present racial disorder contributes to the surge of .violence. Increased publicity by magazines, newspapers, radio and TV brings the subject home to the masses with startling clarity. Bringing violence down to the screen, we quote an editorial in the August 16 issue of the Motion Picture Herald,' trade publication of the motion picture industry. I quote from a part of this editorial: "It is time to blow the whistle on excessive violence on both the theatre screen and the home TV receiver. "For too long the motion picture industry has maintained an ostrich-head-in-sand posture on the matter of the implications of brutalizing and de-humanizing violence in films. In fact, it has been customary to either ignore the issue or assert that conclusive evidence is lacking that violent entertainment stimulates violent actions by the spectators. "Abroad, notably in Great Britain, there is nothing new about strictures on violence in motion pictures. For a dozen years British censors have been generally much more concerned about violence than about sex. "If voluntary measures are not taken to control violence where it should be controlled — in story selection, script writing, directing and in the cutting room — it is a cer- < tainty that controls will be forced from the outside. These controls might come in the form of a revival of censorship but more likely would refill from protests of an a- rous«4 citizenry. "f w years voices have been raised fbout violence in TV show* an<| in certain movies. Hardly anyone listened because, despite a mounting crime rate, especially among the young, violence was not considered a national problem in the United States. "This Summer of 1967 . . . this long, hot summer . .. has changed all that." What brings the whole subject of violence home to local cinemaddicts ; s the booking of two "violent" pictures, Bonnie and Clyde this month and the St. Valentine's Day Massacre next month. Let me make myself quite clear. I do not blame the local theatre for booking these pictures because they have proven themselves money makers and after all, profits are essential to any business. Oldsters will recall, quite vividly, the swath of crime perpetrated by one Clyde Barren and Bonnie Parker; how these two wandered into life of petty crime, then lure, f feared that ««d Clyde' knemi L-—well what to make of iff fence, and make* • .statement with it'— i ,_, fence ia not necctsartly p** (titrated by shambling cat* men or quivering p*ychop*tlii but may also be the casual/ ?,» eisy expression of only Hlghfe ,• ly aberrated cltttent, of jtt* folks, "1 had become so surfeited and preoccupied by violence in daily life that my reaction was as excessive as the stint* ulus. There are indeed a few moments in which the gome goes too far, becomes stock* shockery that invites standard revulsion. And yet, precisely because 'Bonnie and Clyde' combines these gratuitous crudities with -scene after . scene of dazzling artistry, ore* cisely because it has the power both to enthrall and ap< pall, it is an ideal laboratory for the study of violence, a subject in which we are all matriculating these days." Mr. Morgenstern concludes his remarks with: "There is, in the depiction of violence, a thin red line between the precisely appropriate and the imprecisely offensive. Sometimes a few too many frames of film may mean the difference between a shot that makes its point concisely and one that lingers slobber- ingly. "These few frames or- scenes in 'Bonnie'and Clyde* will hardly change the course of human events. When we talk about movies, even artistic movies, we are not talking about urban-rnewal programs,, nuclear nonproliferation treaties or rat-control bills. Art cannot dictate to life and movies cannot transform life, unless we want to retool the entire industry for the production of propaganda. "But art can certainly reflect life, clarify and improve life; and since most of humanity teeters on the edge of violence every day, there is no earthly reason why art should not turn violence to its own good ends, showing us what we do and why. The' clear danger, of course, is ' that violence begets violence in life and engenders confusion in art. It is a potent weapon, but it telids to aim the marksman." Not having seen Bonnie and • Clyde I have no comments, but the above just about covers the film. It will be inter- .; esting to note the local reac- ; tion. I doubt that it will encourage .any display of violence in;Algona. And it will i be especially interesting to • note how an historical incident will be .treated on the screen. The picture will be shown at the Algona Theatre Thursday thru Saturday, September 21-23. Almanac- (Continued from Page 1) Burt, Ford Trk.; W. E. Ley Mtr.

What effect will a picture of these unsavory characters have on the younger generation? This picture has caused a wave of controversy in movie circles. Joseph Morgenstern, film editor for Newsweek, reconsiders a review he wrote a week previously with these remarks. And I quote again; "Last week this magazine said that 'Bonnie and Clyde,' a tale of two young bank rob" bers in the 1930s, turns into a 'squalid shoot-'em for the moron trade' because it does not know what to make of its own violence. I am sorry to say I consider that review grossly unfair and regrettably inaccurate. I am sorrier to say I wrote it.
