Tues.,Jan. 19, 1971 THE MIAMI NEWS 5-B 'Gimme Shelter'--a beautiful, honest film "Gimme Shelter" Is the Maysles Brothers and Charlotte Zwerin's spectacular film about the Rolling Stones last tour of the United States. The film covers the Stones from their Madison Square Gardens' concert (where their album, 'Get Your Ya Yas Out" was recorded), to the recording studios in Muscle Shoals, Ala., to their free concert at Altamont, Calif. The film is a documentary.. It was in the process of being made long before the Altamont tragedy took place. You flash through getting the festival together with Melvin . Belli, and his super busy houseboat, Michael Lang (of ' Woodstock fame), Rockey and Chip Monk. The Stone's original idea was to give a i ( SUSAN DRINK free concert at Golden Gate Park, but the city wouldn't permit it, so Altamont Race-way was offered as an alternative. What happened at Altamont, is history already but hearing about it and actually seeing it happen before your eyes on the screen, is something else again, You see the murder, and everything else as Jagger and the Stones see it The film does not begin to analyze, synthesize or theor- iy ize why the Hell's Angels got out of control, or why the black man who was killed was carrying a gun, but you see it all happen. The film is . constantly bouncing back and forth from the Stones that night to all that went before the people, the hotel rooms, helicopters, raps, groupies, and Jagger watching a replay of the Altamont concert on video tape. , , All of the technical aspects of the film are perfect. Each frame of the movie could be blown up into an expressive still photograph. The shots of the faces of the people going to Altamont, the Stones onstage in New York, the Jefferson Airplane, Tina Turner, all of it. "Gimme Shelter" has the same heaviness as "Easy Rider." You watch an event that had so much love and concern going into it, and even though all the right people are In the right place at the right time, something still goes wrong. "When Jagger sings "Street Fighting Man" he stops because there is fighting in the crowd. He tries to talk to the people. He struts across the stage, being beautiful, strewing rose petals, singing and dancing, but it still isn't enough. Keith Richards freaks out and stops playing in "Under My Thumb," and as he is screaming at the Hell's Angels to stop pushing and shoving people, the murder is happening. In the film the killing is shown in slow motion as Jagger watches in the studio on video tape. The expression on his face ends the film with a sad, lonely, disappointed feeling. It's that unique combination of the best of times, and the worst, of those very rare, very beauti-the good and the bad. ful, very honest films. Let's "Gimme Shelter" Is one of hope it comes to Miami soon. Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones Movie review Bloody 'Soldier Blue' wallows in brutality By HERB RAU Miimi Ntwi Columlntit "Soldier Blue" makes up for all the blood that didn't drip in a thousand earlier U.S. Cavalry film epics. Except this one's no epic. The blood not only drips in "Soldier Blue", it squirts and gushes as the cavalrymen, portrayed as sadistic raving maniacs,' massacre an Indian village. Heads and limbs are lopped off, bullets splash brains, and knives and spears and arrows fly in and out of bodies. There's rape and maiming and various and sundry other types of brutality and bestiality as the story wallows in what it ostensibly abhors the atrocities of war. This Is a sickening portrayal of violence. The screenplay is based on the infamous Sand Creek massacre of 1964. But the producers pander not only to some audience somewhere that might be fascinated with blood baths, they've inserted a dreadfully cute romantic comedy with Candice Bergen and newcomer Peter Strauss as the protagnonists. Neither is believable. Not Strauss in the title role as an army private who is all that remains of a detachment of soldiers delivering a white woman to her fiance after she's lived with the Cheyen-nes. And not Candice Bergen, as the foulmouthed blonde who lived as a chiefs squaw. They blew it with "Soldier Blue."

That's when an electric freezer spells convenience. And for economy, you can stock up in quantity when there's a sale on. In fact, you get double economy because the no-flame, no-fume electric power that runs your freezer is one of life's great bargains. The average price paid per kilowatt hour by FFi-served families today is one-third less than it was back in 1957. In these inflationary times, that should warm the heart of any budget-conscious Floridian. 'I
