i Seen at the ' ALGONA •y T. M. C. 4-AIOONA (tttwt) ADVANCt MONDAY, APRIL M, IfM This is the tihie of year when every critic—professional, amateur or just the "side-walk" variety, piits in his "nickel's worth" about the Academy Awards. Hie big show in Hollywood followed the usual lines of boredom, waiting for the big decisions which came after 1 had long since retired. A dance number by Cyd Charisse was a welcome relief but the rest was routine. There was little doubt about the best picture, after Sound of Music had broken all box office records and, was such a general favorite. It wouldn't have been my personal choice although enjoyed it once, largely because of the wonderful photography and the singing of Julie Andrews. But was it really the "best". Technically, did it rank with Dr. Zhivago, The Pawnbroker, Ship of Fools? Lee Marvin seemed a popular choice for best actor in Cat Balou, from the ovation he received from the audience but for my money Rod Steiger (Pawnbroker) ^arid' Omar; Sharif (Dr. Zhivago) were much more effective in more substantial roles. 1 saw {Cat Balou in Minneapolis months ago and truthfully, thought it Was very crude and superficial—even for the satirical' comedy it was supposed to be?' - V- '•' ^ ' * They gave Julie Christie the best actress Oscar for her performance in '" Darling which didn't register in my book. Her role as Lara in Dr. Zhivago seemed much, much more effective. There you have it, from my point of view. Most cinem- addicts probably haven't seen many of the films since the big road show productions do not make the smaller theatres for at least a year. When I read Times' comment on Harper, I knew I was "in" for it, I, quote: , "Hired killers,, bagmen, juvenile, cops; mysterious servants and religious nuts tumble over one another in Harper, and the (i * Fenton girl to Minneapolis Miss North Iowa Band Queen of 1965, Marilyn Alt, recently completed resident-training at Professional Business Institute in Minneapolis as a medical as- sistant-receptionist. She is now working with Dr. H. Friedman ophthalmologist, in Minneapo lis. She is the daughter of the Lawrence Alts, Fenton. Bulldog ALGONA TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY IRONIC TWIST OF FATE! STARLITE DRIVE IN ,,Rock Hudson Prentjss Ho WAIO HAWKS HIM aris Favorite Sport?" SECOND FEATURE convoluted plot demands an audience's unwavering attention). By combining flamboyant suspense with a sunbaked slice of life and lots of good mean fun, Director Smight makes eve|ry clue a pleasure to follow." I have a. "one-track" mind when it comes to the movies; as soon as they bring in an assortment of characters who may,.or may not contribute to the action or plot, I'm lost. I enjoy a movie like Hud (one of Paul Newman's best) because it is a character study and I am able to follow the action from beginning to end. Harper is a fine picture, beautifully photographed, expertly acted and intelligently written and directed. Maybe if I saw it again, I could piece together the various actors and actresses and put them in their right positions. Actually, the plot is quite simple and involves the kidnapping of a millionaire and the ransom money. In the end, almost ev eryone in the cast is involved while Newman is put squarely in the middle, as a gum-chewing gumshoe (detective). Lauren Bacall, as the millionaire's flippant wife, Janet Leigh as Harper's wife, Shelley Winters as an ex-mistress of the missing victim, Pamela Tiffin as the daughter and Julie Harris as the dope fiend, round up the feminine contingent while Robert Wagner and Arthur Hill contribute effectively to the masculine part of the cast. Harper is brand new and current and adds to the prestige of the local theatre.
