The movie may be inconsequential, but in some ways that's a strength. Without hauling in a lot of deep meanings, it remembers with great warmth a time and a place. The time, the summer of 1964. The place, Erie, Pa., where life for young people centers around music, around records, around the radio, and especially around the incredible phenomenon of the Beatles. It's ROGER EBERT Universal Press Syndicate the kind of world where the owner of an appliance store can say, "I don't think I want to live in a country where you have to work on Sunday" without suspecting he will ever have to. The owner's son, Guy (Tom Everett Scott), lurks in the store after hours to play records loudly on the turntables and accompany them on the drums. His friends have started a band, and when the drummer breaks an arm, Guy joins the band just before it gets its big breaks. They have one song, written by their lead vocalist, Jimmy (Johnathon Schaech). It's called "That Thing You Do!" and it's a good thing it's a good song (written by Adam Schlesinger) because boy, are we familiar with it by the time the movie is over. "That Thing You Do!" is a rags- to-riches-to-oblivion story, the Festival / Towns get to promote selves FROM PAGE D1 In 1992, the Penners organized the Kansas Sampler Foundation. Its mission is to educate Kansans about their state and to establish a self-help network for rural communities. "As Dad and I traveled around the state, we became really affected by the story of the rural communities and their plight. We also were disturbed by the lack of knowledge that most Kansans had about their state," Marci said. Linda Yohon, who has attended five of the festivals as a representative for Stockton, said it's impossible to leave the festival without learning more about the .state. The Stockton booth this year will focus on the town's new museum and hunting and fishing opportunities in northwest Kansas. "The festival is educational, yet you're out in the elements and you meet new people. It's just fun," Yohon said. "I can't support it enough. It's a great way for small communities to promote what they have." Marilyn Helmer, who owns a store in Lincoln that offers Kansas-made products, said the festival "is a fixture on our calendar." T VIDEO REVIEWS She said the event resulted in two bus tours to Lincoln County this past year and a number of new visitors to her shop. "I credit the Penner family with doing more to save rural towns and rural businesses more than any other thing we've done," Helmer said. "The festival not only exposes who we are, it's a network for us." Other exhibitors from north- central and northwest Kansas will include: Brown Grand Theatre, Concordia; Dane G. Hansen Museum, Logan; Nicodemus Historical Society; Hillsboro Historical Society; Beloit Tourism; the towns of Lucas, Russell, Abilene, Oberlin, Marquette, Moundridge and Lindsborg; and the counties of Cloud, Graham and Osborne. Also planned are stage shows, including videos on individual towns, performances by an Amish storyteller, the McPherson Pipe Band and Indian dancers, demonstrations on handling rattlesnakes by a group from Sharon Springs and stone post cutting by Vonada Stone of Sylvan Grove, and historical presentations on black women by Angela Bates- Tompkins of Nicodemus and legends of the old West. More than a dozen food booths also will be on the grounds. Characters make 'Fargo' one of year's best films By ROGER EBERT Universal Press Syndicate FARGO (R, 98 m., 1996) is a crime story crossed with human comedy and with characters who are perfectly written and played; it's one of the year's best movies. Frances McDormand stars, as a pregnant small-town police chief who finds herself on the trail of a desperate car salesman (William H, Macy), who has dug himself into a pit of fraud and conspiracy so deep that he fairly vibrates with fear and guilt. The movie is violent, bloody, sweet, charming and surprisingly funny, and McDor- mand's performance is one of the most engaging and lovable of recent years. Rating: Four stars. if- «J 4» <f TWISTER (PG-13, 117 m., 1996). Wall-to-wall tornadoes and great special effects, in a movie very thin on plot. Storm chaser Bill Paxton brings his fiancee (Jami Gertz) along as he visits his first wife (Helen Hunt) in the middle of a Midwestern field where she's looking for tornadoes. They find plenty—at least five, including the biggest of all, the dreaded Finger of God. There's no time for plot, but the action is nonstop (the director, Jan De Bont, also made "Speed"). Skillful entertainment, but mindless. Rating: Rating: Two and a half stars. Sal'c Streots Fair Taxes GARY SWARTZENDRUBER For State Representative District 69 Pol. Adv.

Appropriately enough, the name of the band is the Wonders, although it starts out as the "One- ders." My favorite scenes take place in Hollywood as the band is breaking up and Guy has time on his hands. He meets his longtime idol, the jazz great Del Paxton (Bill Cobbs), gets to join him in a session, and learns from him a basic lesson: "Bands come and go." In the annals of pop music, 1964 was a fairly innocent time. Bands broke up because of girlfriend problems, not drugs and murders. A guy could still run a record company out of his briefcase and get air time by personal visits with disc jockeys. It wasn't all organized, it wasn't all big time, and if it was all hype, well, it's always been all hype. Starting At fora limited nmt only Clavinovc? DIBITM.
