The fiVlovies by Gene Siskel Mad Dogs5 and ONE OF THE more stunning porformnncos in "Woodstock" wns Joo Cocker wnil-ing "With a Little Holp From My Friends," or "from mo friends" as tlio Englishman says It. Now ho has n film all of Ills own. "Mad Dogs and Englishmen," at tho Esqulro Thcator, Is n documentary of Cocker's recent American tour with n wild assortment ;of moro than 40 musicians, groupies, children and pets. ITheir stop at Chicago's Ara-gon Theater Is represented iby only one of tho film's 114 'minutes. "Mad Dogs" Is distinguishable from other "rockumen-tarics" because it deals almost exclusively with tho musician and his music. Thero are few side trips to cultural comments. Aside from Cocker and company performing 14 songs, tho film's high point is an interview with Cocker in which ho explains how he came to .employ his herky-jerky,' I 'almost spastic arm move-! ments while yelling his I iballads-it's a habit picked .up from practicing guitar playing without a guitar in front of a mirror. He also casually mentions that his energetic performances play a crucial part in his life "If I hadn't been a singer, I'd probably murder somebody." Providing a moody counterbalance to Cocker's ebullience Is Leon Russell, the group's pianist and con-- ductor. Russell's contribu-' tions indicate a major talent certainly worth a film of it's own. Rating: three stars. DONALD SIEGEL'S "The Beguiled," at the Roosevelt Theater, is a poorly executed perverse idea. When Clint Eastwood, a severly wounded Union ; soldier, is nursed to health by ; a confederation of Southern I belles studying at the ram-, shackle Farmsworth Seminary for Young Ladies, the ! ladies, led by headmistress . Geraldine Page, have a prob-. lem. They ought to turn him ; over to the Confederate sol- diers, but he is very attrac-! tive and they have been a ' long time without a man.

If tho film had boon given a moro malevolent tono, ono related moro directly to tho Indies' longings, in tho spirit of William Wyler's "The Collector," for example, it would linvo succeeded. Rating: two stars. REMAKING a classic story with a younger cast is quite tho thing theso days of tho youthful audience. Franco Zeffirelli's "Romeo and Juliet" 1968 is the box offlco success responsible for tho trend. A youthful Macbeth is duo later this year. This w e ek we have "Wuthering Heights" at neighborhood theaters with a gang of theatrical adolescents badly playing tho principal roles. Tho age of the actors is, of course, meaningless. Sir Laurence Olivier was 32 and Merlo Oberon was 28 when their fino "Wuthering Heights" was released in 1939. Talent is more important, Movie CARNEGIE - "Lickerish Quar-tot" (X), 7:45 p. m.. 9:40.
