If you attend the movies solely to be entertained, -^tj.— • wtf that Manager Rieb is doing everything possible to limit "aduH movies" to adult audiences. 1 have seen him per- sonalty checking all question- Able Juveniles at the door to make sure the picture being Shown is for adult consumption. This ift more than most theatre managers are doing in the larger Cities. I asked a Minneapolis manager, when 1 noticed what were plainly teenagers, buying tickets how he diecfced and he replied, "All we can do is take their word for it." { ' Censorship is always an ugly word and even the Su- >reme Court of the United ites seems unable to cope wu'"-. the problem. Getting back to the local level, it is strictly .the duty of the par- entts to see that their children stay away from "adult" movies. It has never been definitely proved that any book or motion picture has affected Hhe morals of any minor. However, our present society is geared to this notion. THAT WE ARE "in" for a cycle of so-called adult films, is definite. We cain't expect itheaitre managers to ignore (this trend since it is plainly a money maker for the box office. Boycotting the theatres wont help. So why not use a little parental authority and keep the youngsters from the itheaitre when adult movies are 'being shown? And if you're an adult and of a sensitive nature, stay home yourself which you're probably doing anyway. Then we'll all be happy. No adUll wants to read books or see pictures which are geared to the juvenile mind. AMSe is the type of picture which is difficult to review. To some, it may seem to be an utterly worthless portrayal of a heartless^ philanderer who thought only of his own pleasure and enjoyment. To others, myself included, it was a sharply and beautiful honed performance by Michael. Clai- ne,,wiith a rather sympathetic ending. After discarding various "birds" (women) our hero finally realizes Ms useless quest with these words, "If they aifllt got you one way, they got yoU another." In another 'jjstide ;<He. concludes, "I wish for once I could do good in me dreams — new must come from the in- aide." If you missed Caine's expert performance and Bill Nautfhton's. wit and iritelli- feno0 in writing both the play and the screenplay, you probably gave Alfie a poor Hating. But there was more to it than meets the passing eye. you were probably disappoin' ted, but if occasionally you •like something different and thought provoking such films are important. the mother of Bancroft and feode resident*, Mrs: FTed Antoine, §1 of Ayrshire, died there last Wednesday.

My readers will recall my argument with Mr. Gill following his down-grading of the picture w'hioh was so pop- ulair, How The West Was Won. Here is Mr. Gill's review of The Servant — "The screenplay is by Harold Pinter and a smashing job he has done of it. A perfect match is the dkection of Joseph Losey; tthe subject matter has the richly dark and elegantly spooky quality with which Henry James upfiols- tared his tales." Bqatey CA>wther, celebrated prttk for the New York I, 'has this to say — Servant is a picture •that carries implications so profound and so darkly re- flectovfc of a creeping sickness in »oiciety that seems sheltered and secure that I can understand how it might stagger a man." And finally Judith Crist, of the New York Herald Tribune, comments as follows — Tanatomy of corruption I,in brilliant detail. Dirk seifVaint is a tarilli- pojrtrait. Sarah Miles is fat devil's assistant extroord- as Vera, thead b»ck and teeih bgred in sex- ual'appettte."
