14 THE GAZETTE, SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 1963 wBtiams sups -J New Movies In Town Bedazzled, P.J And The Biggest Bundle Of Them All GAZETTE GUIDE TO THE MOVIES hastily-arranged set-up for a divorce case.) P.J. (Peppard) is engaged toy William Orbison, a tycoon of highest (and lowest) order, ostensibly to protect Orbison's beautiful mistress from the revengeful schemes of his wife's neurotic family. The intrigue lies in the fact that Orbison is not all that he seems to be (though Raymond Burr in the role pretty much fills the screen whenever he is present, and gives the fleeting impressioa that Orbison just more than he seems to be). A great deal happens in the film, and really very little. The plot line is thin but Sustained.

The color photography is colorful. The actors are adequate to their roles. Thought never intrudes upon the action. In short, a good film, well conceived, and as well realized. To be seen, enjoyed, and forgotten.

DAVID LOBDELL OF THEATRE TICKETS ALL "FAMOUS" THEATRES TICKET IN EACH BOOK incredible gufuffles you have ever seen on the screen until they finally well, no. That would be telling. The day I saw it I was in a pretty dour mood, and none of the gags seemed the slightest bit funny, but I imagine that under other circumstances this could be wildly entertaining.

George Peppard, playing his usual virile, clean-cut, all-Amerfcan self, is hard-luck, levelheaded rnuscleboy, an ex-Marine turned private eye turned professional scapegoat, down to his last legitimate buck, (at the beginning-of the film we see him hired out as the anonymous partner in a aaaaaaa i-aaaaaa mmm A 1 RICHARD BURTON THE OXFORD UNIVERSITY DRAMATIC SOCIETY ELIZABETH TAYLOR.

Thinkers will no doubt admire Cook and Moore for their daring in this film, while true believers will be surprised or even offended.

But whatever one's thoughts about the Bible aod the frank conversations, Bedazzled still has the ludicrous situation comedy appeal that will bring the guffaws. JAN WRIOHT THE BIGGEST BUNDLE OP THEM' ALL (tt th Capital): Watch your mood before you go to this film. If the stars are right you will find it the most hilarious comedy of the season; if not it will simply seem i very long bore. The biggest bundle of the title is a heist of a platinum shipment worth $5 million. But the film is liberally larded with puns and triple-entendres, and most of the time the subject is Mis Raquel Welch's obvious and ample physical talents.

She is either to good natured that she takes it ill without turning a hair; or so stupid she doesn't understand that she is the butt of all the yuks. The film features the most inept team of bullion thieves you have ever encountered. Hiiaded by Vittorio de Sica and Edward G. Robinson, and featuring a spreading Godfrey Cambridge, Dave Kaye and Francesco Mule, the group bumbles through the most KENT Carry on Screaming. LOEW'S P.J.

BEDAZZLED (At the Avenue): Those two bright British satirists Peter- Cook and Dudley Moore (who helped create the original Beyond The Fringe) have combined their talents again to bring us their first full-length feature film.

Cook wrote the screenplay and Moore wrote the music for a story they both dreamed up, and the two male leads are played by none other than Cook and Moore. The result is a clever text, hilarious scenes and impeccable performances. The theme is the not unfamiliar one of innocent-sells soul-to-the-devll in-ex-change-for -seven-wishes. The innocent (Moore) is a short order cook eating his heart out over a waitress (Eleanor. Bron).

The devil (Cook) is a modish fellow with headquarters in a Soho discotheque where he hangs out with the Seven Sins (including gorgeous Raquel Welch as Lust). While tempting Moore at HQ. the devil snips buttons off brand new shirts, scratches records and reseals them in their plastic wrappers, and tells Moore how he used to be an adoring angel in heaven until he got bored stiff. Then as Moore's seven wishes unfold on the screen, we see the most promising romantic situations turn, sour on him. The cleverness of Bedazzled is that it combines biting satire with hilarious situation comedy, and sharp jabs at TODAY SUNDAY ORIGINAL (1 I VERSION An Unusuo.
