32 The Pittsburgh Press, Wed., March 5, 1975 'Stepford 'Sheila 'Influence' Due LIKE GRANDFATHER, LIKE CRANDSON John Drew Barrymore, left, followed his father, the late John Barrymore ("the Great Profile") into acting. Now John Blythe Barrymore. 19, John Drew's son, is making his movie debut in a forthcoming David Carradine picture, "Around." Box Offices .Perk. But Film Changes Slated By EDWARD L BLANK ' Press Drama Editor Odds and ends from here and there: The Oscar nominations helped inflate boxoffice revenues for all the films involved. The blockbusters hardly needed the help, but "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore" at t h e Kings Court won a reprieve on the strength of its jump. It had opened d i s a p p o int- ingly. Unless "Alice" holds well this week, though, it will be replaced next Wednesday by "The Stepford Wives," in which Katharine Ross and Paula Prentiss play wives who move to a strange .New England MISS NEWNAN ' town where all the women behave like domesticated automatons. One of the women, Britisher Nanette Newman, is the wife of the picture's . director, Bryan Forbes. . "Harry and Tonto" finally vacates the Forum and Encore to make room Friday for "Sheila Levine Is Dead and Living in New York." . ' . . Art Carney's nomination for "Harry and Tonto" caused business for that longrunner to spurt, too, but the backlog of pictures waiting in the wings necessitates a change. John Cassavetes' "A Woman Under the Influence," witty Gena Rowlands and Peter Falk, follows "Amarcord" into the Manor. LOUIS MALLE'S French "Lacombe, Lucien" won the British Society of Film and Television Arts award as Best Picture. Joanne Woodward was Best Actress for "Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams" (a 1973 film released in England last year) and Jack Nicholson Best Actor for both "Chinatown" and "The Last Detail." Not only has Buhl Planetarium scratched the evening performances of , its sky shows on Mondays and Tuesdays, but the entire building is closing at 5 p.m. on those days henceforth. Monday and Tuesday evenings tended to be sparsely attended during most months. The planetarium will be open every night during the Thanksgiving-Christmas period only. Puppeteer Peter Arnott's performances of "The Bacchae" and "The Medea" at the Museum of Art Theater, Scaife Gallery, this week were sold out well in advance to teachers and students. On the strength of this show of interest, Arnott may be asked to return for more performances at a later date, according to Jerry Clack of Duquesne University's Classics Department and the sponsoring Classical Association of Pittsburgh. Even playing to eapacity at $1 per seat, the shows this week will bring in only $400. The rest of Arnott's expenses are being paid by the A. W. Mellon Educational and Charitable Trust. IN CONJUNCTION with performances of "Pantagleize" in Stephen Foster Memorial Hall tomorrow through March 22, the University of Pittsburgh plans a couple of related events. Director David Rinear will moderate a discussion of the show at 8 p.m. March 19 in the hall. And a couple of films on' the theme of political madness, Charlie Chaplin's "The Great Dictator" arid Laurel and Hardy's "Double Whoopee," are slated at 8 p.m. March 18 in Room 223 of Lang-ley Hall on campus. Who can figure big business? "Wherels Poppa?" a boxoffice disap-pointnfent when first released in' 1970, has steadily built a following and draws consistently well in revival theaters and campus-area showings. Having finally acquired a name for itself, so to speak, "Where's Poppa?" is going into national re-release but with a new title: "Going Ape."
