Given such a wordy script, director Frank Perry was forced to find settings of sufficient zaniness to keep the movie from becoming a mire of words. It was an exercise that seems to have kept Perry from the indulgences that have marred his last few pictures.
One scene, in which Bridges conspires with a ranch hand (Harry Dean Stanton) over a game of electronic tennis, is a gem of comic understatement. It's become quite clear that any movie with Bridges is a movie worth seeing. He doesn't overplay his roles, but he revels in them, and his enthusiasm infects his co-stars especially Waterston, who's usually too limpid for my taste but who does well as a visionary Indian. They are buoyed up (not just supported) by Clifton James and Elizabeth Ashley as a rancher and his wife, by Slim Pickens as a livestock detective, and especially by Charlene Dallas as Pickens' assistant who goes from Baby Doll to Vixen to seduce the clues that lead to the rustlers' capture. "RANCHO DELUXE" Rated R.
At the D. W. Griffith. "Rancho Deluxe" is an extravagant free-verse poem of a movie no rhyme, no reason only an ability to create wonderfully absurd characters and to make every one of them endearing. The story of a pair of modern-day Montana cattle rustlers (Jeff Bridges and Sam Water ston), it was written by novelist Thomas McGuane Sporting Club," "The Bushwacked Piano," "Ninety-Two in the and it is above "all a writer's movie brimming with dialogue that demonstrates a love of words and an ability to spin them out by the yard.
It's not so much that McGuane has an ear for the way people talk as that he permits them to put their fanciful ideas into the lushest language while still keeping them ordinary, plain folks. McGuane's is a world in which every man is a poet OPEN LETTER TQ MY FELLOW TJEW YORKERS As an immigrant with very little formal education.

"At first all went smoothly, but when an orchestra member read aloud some anti-Semitic things Wagner wrote, all hell broke loose. We got bomb threats, yet the police said they wouldn't protect us unless a bomb actually went off. Under the circumstances, we had to change the program. believe Wagner used anti-Semitism as a ploy during his time.
There's certainly nothing anti-Semitic in his music Most people hated Jews in the 19th century, and, besides, Wagner in all probability was half-Jewish himself. To me, the Israelis are absolutely wrong in banning any music." There's been talk about his return to the Met Opera in a couple of years, "but it will have to be in a German opera I got type-cast in Italian opera last time I was there. Anyway, what I'm doing now is the most important thing. Everyone should be proud of one thing he did with his life and I must say I'm immensely proud of what I did in and for Los Angeles. kilt tilt in Ho sicrht-readin?

By BILL ZAKARIASEN Conductor Zubin Mehta, in the midst of a whirlwind four-week tour with his Los Angeles Philharmonic, tried to relax for a few hours in his mid-town hotel room by watching the Michigan-Ohio State game on TV. Mehta had coincidentally conducted the previous two nights in Ann Arbor and Toledo respectively. "Everywhere I went, there seemed to be torchlight parades." That night- he and the orchestra were to play in West Point, but Mehta couldn't remember off-hand where they'd be playing Sunday.
They will, of course, play the first of their three New York concerts tonight at Carnegie Hall. The energetic Mehta is an old hand at touring, either with the L.A. Philharmonic, the Israel Philharmonic (of which he is also music director), or guesting in opera and concert all over Europe. "I want to tour Russia again, but they don't want me there because of my pro-Israel stand." Though born in the third-world subcontinent of India, Mehta has been for most of his professional life an ardent supporter of Zionism. In concert: Two orchestral concerts this weekend were of considerable interest.
The Scottish National Orchestra made its New York debut Friday night in Carnegie Hall under its music director Alexander Gibson. They sounded just like their numerous recordings a strong, clean band (marred only by a lack of brilliance in the violins) led by an assured, energetic gentlemau of the baton in the Beecham mold. Gibson gave classic, yet still romantic architecture to the Elgar "Enigma" variations and knowingly accompa--nied the splendid pianist John Lill in Beethoven's "Emperor" Concerto. The Scotsmen saved a world premiere for us New Yorkers Iain Hamilton's "Aurora," a supeibly orchestrated slice of atmosphere which riveted the attention until its disappointingly inconclusive final page. The New York Philharmonic program under Pierre Boulez gave a fine performance of Stravinsky's "Symphonies for Winds," then sunk to the doldrums with a meandering rendition, of the Brahms Violin Concerto.
