E-i Wednesday. February 20. 1974 HONOLULU ADVERTISER 'Serpico' made extraordinary by Pacino Advertiser review By WAYSE HARADA ' Advertiser Entertainment Editor "Serpico," at the Royal Theatre, is an ordinary cop movie made extraordinary, thanks to Al Paci- no's brilliant portrayal of precinct graft. Based on Peter Mass" true story about Frank Serpico, a gutsy officer who finally opened up investigations into New York police corruption several years ago, the the man who says no to movie is exceedingly il luminating in its rough-and-tough action scenes. It captures the essence of Serpico's style a man of honesty, integrity, courage, dedication, and perseverance in a volley of swift, exciting foot-ages.

Advertiser addendum: some sex. some violence, some nudity, occasional ly blunt language. ing a gang of rapists, or pursuing narcotics pushers. Pacino's creation is a movie-watcher's delight, a kook of a cop who wears many disguises, exhibits an earring on his right ear, studies Spanish in night classes, and takes ballet lessons and reads Isadora Duncan's life story in his leisure. INDEED, he's no ordinary cop the cops shoot at him, thinking he's a hippie and Pacino isJha 4 ,V4 LfwH I - fSMU- Am:, did company in the supporting ranks. For instance, Tony Roberts as the plainclothes-man who shares Serpico's perseverance, is quite believable. Ditto Jack Kehoe, an officer on the "take" who tells Pacino that one who doesn't take money can't be trusted; Cornelia Sharpe and Barbara Eda-Young as the girls who momentarily share Serpico's life and thereby act as sounding boards for his frustrations LEST YOU get offended, "Serpico" presents a cop as a real fellow human and in moments of sheer anger, the language is:, foul yet rightfully necessary. The crimes and the crookedness and the cor- ruption have been explored many times in", many other films, both on the big screen and the telly, but Serpico's unmitigated ambition to be, in simplest terms, an honest cop, has never been so explicitly and imaginatively showcased before. And as the parting note says on the film, Serpico, till this day, has chosen to flee to Switzerland, where r - he was last reported. 11.-What, after all, does a marked man do?

CALL OR WRITE FOR ALL DETAILS layers his character with the drive, the stamina, and the zeal of a clean-living, law-abiding officer. He refuses, for instance, to accept a free lunch at the neighborhood deli. Thus, he cannot take graft hundreds, initially; thousands, eventually like his fellow officers. Thus, "he's a salmon swimming downstream, going against the customary "system." And for the longest time, he maintains a sealed lip attitude, amidst a devastating game of ostracization from his compadres. For this acting job, Pacino has been nominated in the Best Actor category in this year's Academy Awards. Indeed, he has risen in the ranks of true American acting ( giants. From a brilliant performance in Fame in Needle Park," wherein he was unfortunately compared to then-surfacing Dustin Hoffman, to his powerfully aware interpretation of one of the sons in "The Godfather," where he was overshadowed by Marlon Brandon, Pacino finally is standing on his own. BUT HIS SERPICO is blessed with a screenplay by Waldo "Midnight Cowboy" Salt and Norman "Joe" Wexler, which is laced with the fervor and the seediness of N.Y.P.D., stretching from murky ghettos to picturesque Greenwich Village. Director Sidney Lumet, who has been snubbed in this year's Oscar race, injects a firm hand and flair in his ability to tell an action story. And while "Serpico" is perhaps 90 per cent Pacino's show, he gets splen- Marjorie Trumbull will perform Eleanor Roosevelt's famous speech on the United Nations during the Mayor's Symphony Ball Friday night at the Sheraton-Waikiki Hotel.
