AWWWWWWVWVWWWV When The Boys Meet The Girls was a "sleeper/' Originally released in December 1965, it tiasn't been given much publicity that I can recall although it must have played "first run" theatres somewhere along the line. While I'm on the subject* 1 note by the Minneapolis Tribune that Flight of the Phoenix, which played locally some weeks ago and which was released about the same Time as when The Boys Meet The Girls, is getting a "first run" at a lead* ing downtown theatre in Minneapolis. Just what's going on? Getting back to The Boys Meet The Girls, this cozy little film is based on George and Ira Gershwin's Girl Crazy and while the movie version differs quite radically from the original stage production, the most popular songs are introduced on the screen, including I've Got Rhythm, Bidin' My Time, But Not For Me. The picture is a curious mix jure of old and new and introduces such popular (but not for me) groups as Herman's Hermits, Sam the Sham and Davis and Reese. They're welcome to these newcomers but I'm wondering how you can possibly suit the Gershwin fans (which are the oldtimers) and the modern "rock-and-rollers" all in one picture. Harve Presnell has a fine voice and makes a adequate screen hero but Connie Francis s net my "dish" and I thought fer entire- personality very displeasing. She must have got the role from hsr singing and not tier acting ability. And Liberace didn't add much to the entertainment department but there again, I may be prejudiced since I'm not a fan of his. Altogether, all things considered, When The Boys Meet The Girls was a rather relaxing evening's entertainment and was certainly a "family" type film. Maybe some of our movies improve with age; in this case, 'yes." Gomittees for 0.O.P. meting are selected C. R.
