! 13. Seen at the ALGONA By T. H. C. Ironically, my first appearance in this treasured column of cinema criticism since my involuntary disappearance two months ago, is the result of witnessing a showing of Ecco, a film 1 have been passing up for" many months, due to its contents and the adverse criti-' cism from all the professional reviewers. Truthfully, there is no sound reason for its making, much less showing, such a revolting exhibition of violence, sadism and gore as is here presented to the unwary public. I know our genial manager Langfitt had misgivings about the reception of the film and certainly it would not help the B.O. biz nor add to the "image" of the, theatre. And to add to the surprises, I can't conceive of an actor of the stature of George Sanders having a hand in the unsavory dish. But all 'this is beside the point—it's Top Gift stamps at Dunn's store Top Gift stamp* will fa* given by the new Dunn't SON Save Market in Algoni, prrni* dent William Dunn announced. Stamps were put into the firm's stores five years ago. "We felt they were a necessity in the present food operation," Mr. Dunn explained. Stamp catalogue* are available in the store and orders for merchandise from the catalogues may be placed with the store manager, he added. ALOONA (Iowa) ADVANCt—3 MONDAY, JAN, 17, 1966 to 'S SURE-SAVE ON YOUR FINE New Building We were proud to have furnished all the materials and building equipment for your beautiful new grocery store. MILLER Lumber Co. been here, folks have seen it (or parts of it) now what were my personal reactions? Well I only closed my eyes three times during the most revolting (and unnecessary) scenes—I couldn't even witness a Mexican bull fight, you'll remember. There were sequences of real beauty and some were interesting to see, such as, for example, the Portugal whale fishing sequence as well as the witch initiation in England. Previous films of this nature, such as Mondo Cane and Malamondo, have been equally as,sensational but have lacked the uhappeHz* ing aspects of sadism which EC* co seems to constantly promote. There you have my oafidid comments. Instead of the "Adults only" sign so prominently displayed at the box office and in the newspaper advertise; ments, 1 would suggest a better one—"Stay away." But there are better days— and nights—in the offing. The Ipcress File is one of the better ones and staged a long run at the Downtown World in Minneapolis. It is booked locally Sunday thru Wednesday, Jan. 23-26. The Hallelujah Trail should prove interesting top, although I haven't seen either one. So let's forget EccO and look for better things in the future.
