Entertainment The Salina Journal Friday, January 24,1986 Page 22 Marquee Briefly Live in Salina "Painting Churches" and excerpts from "The Taming of the Shrew," studio drama productions, Marymount College Little Theatre, 7:30 p.m. Salina movies A Chorus Line: The Movie — Director Richard Attenenborough, who won the Oscar for directing "Gandhi," brings to film the hit play. On the stage, "A Chorus Line" consisted of a series of monologues and musical turns played against a bare theater wall. The movie, however, tried to be more, and according to New York Times critic Vincent Canby, failed. He calls the movie "fatally half-hearted. From time to time the action is interrupted by ... 'flashcuts,' which are simply shorter versions of flashbacks, and which interrupt the narrative flow as effectively as a loud snore." Even the singing, according to Canby, has been "recorded to ear-piercing intensity. Almost everyone appears to have been directed to overreact." — Mid-State Cinema, Rated PG-13 A Nightmare on Elm Street-2 — Subtitled "Freddy's Revenge," this sequel is all Freddy's — the monster with the shriveled face and 6-inch steel fingernails. This time he wreaks havoc on the life of Jesse, an ordinary teenager. Freddy even, in one particularly bloody scene, emerges from within the boy's body. It's "as stomach-turning as might be expected, but it has a lot going for it: clever special effects, a good leading performance (by Robert Englund) and a villain so chatty he practically makes this a human-interest story," writes New York Times critic Janet Maslin. There are even touches of humor — "as when the pet bird goes wild, attacks its mate and then explodes, leaving behind only a puff of feathers. 'It's that cheap seed you've been buying,' someone in Jesse's family explains.' " — Vogue, Rated R My Chauffeur — Review unavailable. — Sunset Plaza Cinema, Rated R Out of Africa — Meryl Streep and Robert Redford star in what could be the movie team of the year. Streep plays the Danish baroness-novelist Isak Dinesen (whose real name was Karen Blixen). She operates a coffee farm in Kenya in the early part of this century. Redford is a maverick pioneer who steals her heart, despite her love for her husband. The film is based on Dinesen's autobiographical novel by the same name. It's a "big, physically elaborate but wispy movie," writes Vincent Canby in The New York Times. Streep is intelligent, intense and obsessive in her role, but "with the exception of Miss Streep's performance, the pleasures ... are all peripheral ..." — Sunset Plaza Cinema, Rated PG Runaway Train — Jon Voight stars as a two-time loser determined never SALINA WORKS!

He is accompanied in the prison break by Eric Roberts. The two hop a train to escape, and discover it is out of control across the Alaskan wilderness after the engineer dies. Variety calls it "a sensational picture. Wrenchingly intense and brutally powerful ... is fundamentally serious enough to work strongly on numerous levels." The two are joined by Rebecca DeM- ornay and are tracked by railroad officials and eventually the law. The action is pitched at maximum intensity throughout and the "images are invariably strong, bold and muscular." — Fox, Rated R Troll — A family moves into a new apartment, unaware there's a troll in the basement. The little monster takes over the body of daughter Wendy and then goes about trollify- ing the neighborhood. It's "a droll little fairy tale-horror flick," according to Cox News Service critic Eleanor Ringel. "The movie isn't the blood 'n' guts teen-trash its ads suggest — it's more like a Muppets' nightmare — but there are some unsettling scenes ..." The movie stars Michael Moriarty and Shelley Hack as the parents, Sonny Bono (who gets turned into a forest) and June Lockhart as the wise-cracking witch upstairs. — Mid-State Cinema, Rated PG-13 — Compiled by Lori Brack TV movies, specials 7 p.m. — Disney's Living Seas, NBC, Salina Cable Channels 3 and 4 John Ritter is joined by guests including Laura Branigan and Simon LeBon as they take a light-hearted look at the mysteries of life in the ocean depths. 7 p.m. — Midnight Cowboy, WGN, Salina Cable Channel 11 Dustin Hoffman, Jon Voight (1969).
