"t "lr" 24 The Boston Globe Xut-duy, October 30, 1973 THE ARTS Walter Matthau 'goes straight' as a bank robber in 'Charley Varrick' By George McKinnon Globe Staff I don't want to give away the plot denouement but there is a chilling variation on the typical case sequence in "Charley Var-rick" that involves a battle between an old airplane and a car. With this trick ending, director Don Siegel, who specializes in expert, violent and fast-moving crime FILM REVIEW thrillers such as the enormously popular "Dirty Harry" winds up his in-' triguing hard-bitten, offbeat new movie at Cinema 57. Walter Matthau, who plays the title role of a small-time bank robber, drops his usual comedy stance for a straight dramatic role and manages to get a warm touch that has you almost hoping that crime will out. The plot, somewhat implausible and jumbled, has Charley and his young accomplice, expertly played by newcomer Andy Robinson, as a couple of hoods who prefer to knock over small Southwestern banks for comparatively little loot rather than have a mass police chase on their hands. Unfortunately they hit a Nightly & All Day Sunday (Except Sat.) lyland House ROUTE 20, WAYlAND, MASS., 35B-4080 Just 5 Minute off Rte. 128 FREE: 4 ENORMOUS SALAD TABLES WITH YOUR ENTREEI 5.35 ROAST PRIME RIBS OF BEEF Four enormous tables packed- with Gourmet Goodies, Salads, Homemade Breads, Relishes, Marinated Mushrooms, Alaskan Shrimps, Imported and Domestic Cheese, a tot of fixings and mixings, and then MORE.

WE NOW HAVE ENTERTAINMENT NIGHTLY AND SUNDAY FEATURING ELLIE BOSWELL small town bank that is used as an outlet for Las Vegas money to be sent-out of the country to be "laundered." The plot device is that Charley, when he discovers the loot is $750,000, knows he has to return the money or the Organization, more to be feared than the cops, will get him. As in all Siegel films there is constant violance but a sharp clear focus and quick action prevents you from dwelling on plot inconsistencies. Joe Don Baker does well as the sadistic killer sent by the Organization to track down Charley. Peking' opera comes to Boston NOW THRU WED. RETURN TO FOREVER FEATURING CHICK COREA THURS. THRU SAT.
