4D Awards given 3 4-H clubs t at Burt meet 1 stopped «t the Downtown World Theatre in Minfte*> otis, a few weeks ago, to nave a quiet smoke in the <Jonv> fortabie, luxurious balcony lounge. Tfce ftl« AMJS Two For The Road, which, with the exception of some very •attractive rural English scenery, I found dull and extremely tiresome, invoivmg a couple (Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney) in a ten- round bout with marriage. Sample of the dialog, on witnessing a bride and groom emerging from a church; She "They don't look very happy": He "Why should they? They just got married". Adding insult to accident, the time honored institution of marriage, takes quite a beating. Is this an adult picture, not fit for juvenile consumption? Something for the censors to ponder. In line with my policy of "hands off" any picture which might hurt the local box Office (a practice 'frowned upon by most movie critics) I passed up my judgment until after the film was shown here. I'm not sure that this is the ^ right course. If you liked Two program;' Cheryl Kruse is For The Road, I'm glad you lporter did: 1 didn't! I passed up the Blue Max When it was being shown at road-show prices, but I did drop in for an hour ait the ilooal theatre and found it to be an exciting and beautifully photographed film of World War I. That is, if this type picture interests you, which it doesn't me! Nothing bores me quite as much as a recital of past wars (Longest Day) because it reminds me of the tragic fact that wars has never solved \aniytbhing, especially foreign wars. All 'the blood thats been shed on foreign soil has netted us very little. That's the reason I avoid such movies as The Blue Max. If you feel otherwise, you enjoyed this one. The only way to help such synthetic melodramas to a climax, is to reveal once more, the unstart- ling news that the Kaiser's forces are about to lose the war. And incidentally, to kill the hero who portrays the traitor to our cause. That brings us to Hawaii, another overlong, 3>/2 hour road-dhow production which could easily have been reduced to a scant two hours. However at the moderate local price (not $2.65 or 4.25). Hawaii is a good show, featuring Julie Andrews as the suffering wife and Von Sydon as the Puritanical parson. The theme or plot tries to reduce James Michener's 900 page tome into a neat concise package which is, of course, an impossibility. So the film wanders off in four different directions until the viewer is bewildered and completely conlPusted. However, the main plot seems obvious despite wind storms, Conflagrations, errupflions, street fights, shark attacks, luiaus, lavalavas and assorted shouts, the central theme is clear, that the islanders are more Christian than the. Christians themselves. With their religion in ruins, the Hawaiians are open to all the blessings of civilizations: whisky, syphilis and economic exploitation. By films end the nlation in only 50 years, has Withered from 400,000 to less than 150,000 souls, and the parson is forced to assume the white man's burden of guilt. That's a pretty heavy dish to swallow and S'/fe hours is •a 'long time to digest such a cinematic meal, ANNIVERSARY — Mr. and Mrs. Henry Iverson of Story City were honored guests on October 15th on the occasion of their 59th wedding anniversary. Also it was the 83rd birthday of Mr. Iverson and the 82nd birthday of Mrs. Iverson. Procrastination is our best labor-saving device. If you can put it off for a week, you can put it off forever.
