Bob Robert Culp Carol Natalis Wood Ted Elliott Gould Alice Dyan Cannon Hnrst Horst Ebersberg This controversial new film is a slickly made, superbly acted, deftly satirical but vaguely sick comedy exploring two couples who get comically caught up in the modern sexual revolution. Boo and Carol, Ted and Alice an odd quartet, ever there was one are youngish Southern Caltfornlan's.

members of that affluent society whose denizens are variously known as Beautiful people," "Young Marneds" or just plain "Swingers." Like many of their breed, thoiich, their sophisticated facades cover a mire of neuroses, insecurities, boredom and a fear that this year's swinger may well be next year's square, and out of t-'ieir dread of not being With It, they constantly seek to recharge their batteries with a variety of kinky contemporary kicks in ordr to keep their imaz lighted up and the vacuous lives justified in their own minds. It's somewhat in this spirit that Rob (Robert Culp). a documentary filmmaker who affects beads and modified hippie trappings, and wife Carol (Natalie Wood) journey to one of those quasi mystical Southern California group-1 therapy "institutes" designed to improve personal relationships by shared experiences and a devotion to tniti at all costs. Raskins la'er In this sublime revelation and "freed" of old restrictions, Rob announces to Carol that he had a sexual liaison with a 20-year old blonde the night before jiM a purely physical thing, mind you And Carol, similarly free, revels in the announcement, forgiving him immediately, praising him for his candor, in fact, and een pressing for all the details of the affair. She thinks it's so groovy that -he tells Ted (F.Sliott Gould) and Alice fpyan Cannon).

Rut Pisa Tower Work Still No! Started I PI, Italy (AP) It will hei at least another year before is begun to prevent the' world-famous leaning tower of Pisa from leaning any further, i Federico Tornar, president of a government-appointed save-t he-lower organization, said Fri-: day the project will get under' way sometime in 1971. What the project will be, spe-i cifically, has still not bepn de-; dded. The Italian government is conducting a competition for th best idea on how to stop the white bell tower from leaning. So far more than 3.000 proposed plans have arrived in Rom for scrutiny by a government committee of experts. Fifty-one million dollars has been set aside for the work.

The's include one to the ground around the i tower and another to erect statue next to it to biid it I up. There is L'ttSe chance of the tower coHapsmc before the government makes up its mmd which of the plans to adopt. The tower, now 17 feet off center, is not expected to increase its lean by more than a millimeter during 1979. A nililliiiaT 1 1 IS SHOW STARTS 4 4S FEATURES!
