THEATERS. ARTS 28 (vtninfl Journal, Wilmington, Dl., Tuwday, Aug. 23, 1977 Film Clips 3U MakeN ival List oSo Films oYo Fest up their goals. They may well sue-, ceed where others, have failed, simply because they can finance their own projects and don't have to depend on the judgement of others who control the no stranger to controversy while helping to define the outer boundaries obscenity. This year's entry of "Salo: The 120 Days of Sodom," the last film by the late Pier Paolo Pasolini, continues that tradition. The festival tried to get the film last year, but United Artists had distribution rights worldwide and didn't want to besmirch its corporate image in this country by showing the film. The movie is now for sale by U.A., and the festival is dealing directly with producer Alberto Crimaldi. Its selection is not yet official, and it also still must be passed by U.S. Customs. Last year the festival had to yank "In the Realm of the Senses" at the last minute because of Customs disapproval, but that film has since been cleared and shown in this country. On the festival committee this year are Richard Corliss, Roger Greenspun, Charles Michener, Susan Sontag and Richard Roud. If you went to the movies In July you were helping to set a record. It was the best month ever in terms of ticket dollars for the U.S. film industry. "Star Wars" is pacing the field and did 18 per cent of the business that month. Other strong films across the country have been "The Deep" and "Orca," followed by "The Other Side of Midnight," "New York, New York," "Smokey and the Bandit" and "The Spy Who Loved Me." The latter did spectacular business during its opening weeks. You may or may not be excited to learn that the Osmond family is animation festival running Sept. 26 to 30 and a retrospective of 10 American pictures (not yet named) Oct. 3 to 7. Opening and closing night programs will be held in Avery Fisher Hall ($4 to $10) with the rest of the screenings at Alice Tully Hall ($2.50 to $5.30), Among the foreign entries will be this year's Grand Prize winner at Cannes, "Padre Padrone," from Italy, directed by Paolo and VictorioTaviani. Other films of special interest will be: "The Devil, Probably," from France, directed by Robert Bresson; "The Truck," from France, directed by and starring Marguerite Duras; "The American Friend," from West Germany, directed by Wim Wcnders, starring Dennis Hopper, with dialogue in English and Partially shot in the U.S. Also, "Bollwiscr," shot for German television by Rainer Werner Fassbinder; and possibly "The Man Who Loved Women," from France, directed by Francois Truffaut and "The Obscure Object of Desire," from Spain, directed by Louis Bunuel. The New York Film Festival is By MARGARET CRABTREE Selections for the 15th New York Film Festival have been announced, and those who would like to travel up for the event should start making their plans now, One of the three United States entries has already played in Wilmington. "Citizens Band" (not bo be confused with "C. B. Mamas" now at the Edgemoor) was generally a flop around the country and has been pulled from release. Directed by Jonathan Demme, "Citizens Band" is a lightweight comedy, a sort of "American Graffiti" on wheels. It even stars "Graffiti" grads Paul LcMat and Candy Clark. The movie was pushed for inclusion in the festival by committee member Susan Sontag. The second United States entry is "Roseland," directed by James Ivory, shot entirely at New York's Roseland Ballroom. It stars Geraldine Chaplin and Christopher Walkcn. The other entry from the U.S. is a rookie directing effort by Martin Brest, called "Hot Tomorrow," about a writer obsessed with death. Dates for the festival, to be held at Lincoln Center, are Sept. 23 through Oct. 9, with a special going Into the film-making business. Actually, the Osmonds are sticking their finger into just about every aspect of the show business pie that doesn't conflict with their desire to provide clean family -type entertainment. The Osmonds are nearing completion on a 52-acre Entertainment Center near Orem, Utah, where everything from movies, to records, to television shows and sports specials will be produced. The first film has been budgeted at $2 million, and will star the youngest of the Osmond brothers, Jimmy, 14. "Adventures of the Great Brain" will begin to roll next month. Two other pictures are also being planned, one to star Donny Osmond, 18, another to feature Jay Osmond, 22. The Osmonds speak plainly in expressing the type of film product they will turn out: "As businessmen," says Alan Osmond, 28, general vice president of the empire, "we want to help clean up the sickness in the industry . . . Immorality. Violence for violence. Sex to sell films. We don't need that. We want good entertainment. I don't label it family entertainment." Over the years, the Osmonds have proved that they have the sound business judgement to back Last Longwood Show Scheduled Sunday THEATER GUIDE The Chamber Brass of Down-ingtown, Pa., will present the final concert in the summer music series at Longwood Gardens at 7 Sunday night in the open air theater.
