JAMES MUD 18 BACK Although t was forewarned, t had to see it to believe it— LUV Was one of the Worst movies it his been by misfortune to witness. It would be almost impossible to imagine a motion picture with Jack Lenv mon as a "lead" that wouldn't have a few "highlights" of humor or pathos but what few opportunities for such moments there were, were completely defaced to the slow, painful, almost pathetic lapses of direction and dialog. The Broadway stage play was a success and how a sophisticated "hit" could be turned into one of the most dismal films of this, or any other season could be almost completely obliterated is 'beyond the wildest imagination. I said I was "forewarned" but I don't always agree or support the professional critics of Time and Newsweek. In this case, both were right. One sample: "Luv is too good a comedy to die this way; people who have never seen it, would do better to find a road company of the play." And a final comment from movies ever made and surely one of the slowest . . . The failure of the actors is no more susceptable to analysis m ° re say? NO MOTION PICTURE in my memory, has received the publicity, the comments (pro and against) as has the bloody, unappetizing, unsavory story of Bonnie and Clyde, two youthful bandits of the 1930 MEET YOUR FRIENDS WHERE THE ACTION IS! QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT NIGHTLY TO PEOPLE WHO GET MAIL THAT DO ESN T TO THEM !*<*« Usually the letter has gone astray because of an error in addressing. Telephone calls must be "addressed" properly, too. One figure dialed out of order and you'll get a wrong number or no number at all. So ... please dial carefully—the time you save will be your own, Northwestern Bell in Iowa era whose specialty was rob' bifig banks. This column devoted its entire space to comments from the Motion Picture Herald and both Time and Newsweek, 1 a few Weeks ago. Even the Des Moines Register columnist, Donald Katil, gave it his entire attention a few days ago. it was with v such confused and contridic- tory reports, that your reporter attended the opening of Bonnie and Clyde at the Al' goiia Theatre. And 1 must say that it was an exceedingly well directed, expertly .acted production, with touches of pathos and humor sprinkled throughout to minimize the violence and bloodshed. To the oldsters (myself included), who have lived through this era of violence, there is a certain nostalgic appeal and to youngsters, there is a lesson that the "wages of sin are death." There is only one criticism — the subject of sex could well have been down-graded instead of playing it up at both the beginning and end of the film. But except for this, Bonnie and Clyde was surprisingly entertaining and neatly produced. Next month the St. Valentine's Day Massacre will give Us another bloody view of violence in the now almost for- )eriod of the prohibi- Capone days. In the meantime, we have Jerry Lewis' latest picture, The Big Mouth, to relieve our minds. Time marches on.

DONALD KAUL, popular columnist for the Des Moines Register, gives the Cinema; Art Series, a "plug" "jn^this,. Monday's column. I quote the ' entire paragraph: News of still other film societies comes pouring in. The Neonickelodeon Society at Iowa State is presenting an exceptionally fine series of films. Cornell College in Mt. Vernon has a good series for students and faculty. And even ALGONA has jumped on the bandwagon. That's right! Little Algona, town of 5,700 with no college crowd to help boost attendance, has a group that's sponsoring a series of fine films. And they call Hollywood the film capital of the world. —Donald Kaul What 'ya mean, Donald, "little Algona" — jumping board for such notables as your own Harvey Ingham and Gardner Cowles.
