Seen at the ALGONA By T. H. C. I have the reviews of both Time and Newsweek before me and neither give Cincinnati Kid the justice that it deserves in my' humble judgment. Both reviews compare it with The Hustler, a picture I never did get around to see. As so often happens when the "pros" get started kicking a picture around, the argument centers around a questionable point—whether pool is a more interesting game or in the words of Newsweek, "A pool game, with its newlonian neatness of colliding balls, is intrinsically more pho togeriic and dramatizable than a poker game, whose celebral subtelties shine silently behind poker faces." All of which seem quite be- s'.de the point. To a pool devotee and this may be the case but how about a poker player? While I could scarcely be cal led an expert at either game, '. found Cincinnati Kid a. most engrossing picture. I have never quite understood the popularity of Steve Me Q'leen nor is his work in. the present production outstanding although the card duel between McQueen and Edward G. Robin- son is a tension filled battle of wits and subtly guarded small alk—about health, luck, worn- jn trouble and anything that night make an opponent's mind .vander. Ann-Margaret lends color and voluptuous charm as the unfaithful wife of Karl Maiden wlnle Tuesday Weld plays a more subdued role as Me Queen's futile girl friend. The picture is bsautifully photographed in rich, exquisite tech- nicolor and the acting is superb right down to the performance of Rip Torn, as a vicious southern gentleman whose pleasures include a Negro mistress, an in* door pistol range and fixed cards games. A quick look at the March calendar looks promising although I fail to see Ship of Fools listed. It was previewed as "coming soon" and while I have never seen it, I have been chasing it around the various Minneapolis theatres for three or four months. My advice is "see it" when it comes to the local theatre. Bulldog an AHS representative Deim), a geisha girl .(Carol 81«> ALGONA ENDS VVFD.. MARCH 2 Dori&JDav Rod Taylor •Color by DELUXE You'll want to see Never Too Late with Paul Ford and Connie Stevens, as well as the new James Bond, Thunder ball, with Sean Connery and a lot of vil- ains and pretty girls. It's in. its Oth or llth week at the Min- leapolis Orpheum. I'll give it good rating although it's stric- ly "way out" entertainment ike U.N.C.L.E. on TV. Then there's Bob Hope and Tuesday Weld in I'll Take Sweden, Marlon Brando and Yul Brynner in The Saboteur and That Darn Oat, a Disney standout. March looks .like the real beginning of a rush of truly outstanding pictures. And the Starlite Drive-In opens April 1. P.S. Manager Langfitt has just informed me that Ship of Fools will ba shown, locally, as a double feature, starting about 9 o'clock for three days, Thursday thru Saturday, March 3 through 5th. This picture has been widely acclaimed by the critics and is up for an Academy Award. Don't miss it.
