The $l(i-million production, in color on the wide screen, is a reverent picturization of tiie first 22 chapters of the Hook of Genesis, starting with a magnificent interpretation of the creation of the world and continuing through t h e Bible stories of Adam a n d Kvc, Cain and Abe, the Tower nf Babel, the destruction of Sodom a n d Gomorrah, a n d the saga of the p a t r i a r c h Abraham, ending with h i s near-sacrifice of his s o n, Isaac. Huston, the director, also plays the part of Noah and i? heard in the narration and as the voice of Cod. The cast also includes George 0. Scott as Abraham: Ava Gardner as .Sarah; Richard Harris as Cain; Peter O'Toole in a triple role as three angels, and Michael Parks as Adam. \ lovely now Swedish actress, lilla Uergryd, is introduced in the role of Eve. * * * The first San Antonio showings of one of the most praised Biblical films of recent years, THE GOSI'KL ACCORDING TO. ST. MATTHEW, are set for Thursday at the Laurel. Directed by Pier Paolo Pas- olini, the picture was filmed in southern Italy with a cast composed mainly of Italian peasants and working people very much like the actual people among whom Jesus walked during His ministry on earth. The dialogue is in English, however. The part of Jesus is played by a young Spanish actor, Enrique Irazoqui. The picture exactly follows the story of Christ as it is told by Si. Matthew in the first Gospel, without any attempt to fic- tioni/.e ni- to add romantic incidents. The picture has been highly praised by both religious and secular commentators since it was first released in Europe in 1!)G4. It was acclaimed by Life Magazine as "One of the great films of all time." * * * The true story of General Charles Gordon, heroic de- fender of the city of Khartoum in northwestern Africa, is the basis of KHARTOUM, the big picture t h a t opens Thursday at the Majestic. C'harllon llcslon plays the role of General Gordon, who commanded Sudanese a n d Egyptian troops against Arab forces in the ;!17-tiay siege of the city in 1884-85. Laurence Olivier appears as the Mahdi, the fanatical Arab leader who directed tiie siege. Other leading roles are played by Richard Johnson, Ralph Richardson, Alexander Knox, Michael llordern and Nigel Green. The picture, filmed on location along the banks of the tipper Nile, is replete with .spectacular battle scenes. * * * A highly acclaimed new Swedish film, DEAR JOHN, opens Thursday at the Josephine. The film, a dramatic love story about a young sea captain on weekend shore leave, stars Jarl Ktille in the title role and Christina Schol- lin as his love interest. Film critic Judith Crist described "Dear John" as "A truly adult love story! It is a beautiful film, finely made." * * * WHAT'S UP, TIGER LILY? BIENVENIDOS, SEMBRADORES DE AMISTAD COMB SEE!

With commentary and additional material by comic Woody Alien, it is described by Allen in these terms: "Well, now, let's sec. You might call it a bottled in Bond spy drama.

Ford is doing it now, in Columbia's "The Long Ride Home." "An outdoor action film," Ford says, "docs something for an actor that no run-of-the- mill drawing room drama can do.
