After operating my night club El ( hico for more than 40 years. I was forced to close it Tuesday. The reasons? Well, taxes first. And then what with the situation in the subways, the danger on the streets, the difficulty of findins a cab after midnight, hardly anybody wants to be a target in New York late at niihf which is when a night club operates. Also, it is impossible to hi the boss of a place you own yourself these days. For example, waiters work a five-day, 35 -hour week and their new union gimmick is three weeks vacation plus $20 extra per week to make up for the meals and tips they don't get durinsj their vacation! I fought this for three years and can't take any more. So I gie this place to the unions and creditors and will start a new life somewhere else and with GJ'a help will make it. I want to My ood-by and thanks for tbi la-t favor. You were a ereat hein to me in Dast vears. Benito Collada.' And so another landmark in New York's niht life history fades frosn our scene. ThU is the season in ni?ht life, hnwever, when the prom kids a-e oiakinz their reservations to descend in hi groups on the night cluns. All dressed in their pretty eowns and their white dinner ia?ke:s. manv of the kids make three nisjht flubs in one nijrht. This fu.-rh?- confuses rtieht club operators, who wonder where the kid ket their monev since their parents J.n'c make three nights ciuto in a year. Em Tunnel, new secondary coach for My Giants, in Kenny's Steak Pub: "I don't see why a defensive back ever gets hurt. I never a hurt in my life. If you break things down, a defensive back will on! have bodr contact 10 or 15 times durinz a game. I don't say he d esnt have to work. Chasing those decoys around is. tough eiiough. Iut mostly it's running up and taking a second grab on a raoner that a linebacker or a lineman. has grabbed already. Yet it' almost impossible to find outstanding defensive backs. If bad Willie Wood and Herb Adderly I wouldn't even have to go to practtce. I was with a lady in a caS last ntsrht an 1 a bus brushed fenders with us. O ir driver was furious. '"If I didn't have a lady in my cah VI teil you off." he ye! fed at the bus driver. "Please go right ahead," pleaded my lady. 'I don't want to spend the rest of the night wondering- what you were goinsr t teil him" ... A noted dram critic was in a local saloon yesterday saying that he owes everything to h-s wife. ''Not so fast." . said Mike the bar- tetKle--. '"You have a tab here from yesterday A husband and wife we know recentlr reconciled and the missus is optimistic about the reunion, partly because daddv is trving to be a real pal to their son. In fact, the other day he even went skate-boardfosj with him. We asked how the trip turned out. "Well," was the answer, "the doctor says we can take the cast off in a couple or weeks .... Our Place, a new discotheque m E. 4Sth St., opened nigfct before last and proved a jumping, lively spot in an otherwise dull ntahborhood. tt Here's the news from the new movie magazines. Read 'em and cringe: "Burton Tells Why Liz Wants Love Morning, Noon and Nitwit," ''How Ladv Bird Really Feels About Jackie." "The Party That Made Patty Duke a Woman", "Elvis Must I Sin as Marlon Did?" . . . Rudy Ost, whose Les Champs restaurant is a boxing for Clay, five for Liston and nine for Airwick. BARTON RESERVE 3r MOVIES Good Acting Marks 'Signpost to Murder1 By KATE CAMERON . -f s 3 wiiiw i irirff in '' ' f- - ' Ww ii When I saw "Signpost to Murder' on the London stage two or three years ago, it seemed to have maintained an exciting atmosphere throughout the action. On viewing the MGM film based on the Monte Doyle play, some of the tension seemed to have gone from the original drama, even though the screen-play was the work of so knowledgeable a plav- writrht as Sally Benson. In watching the moves made by a well-seasoned -3t in the murder mystery, I was distracted by the background of the action. Most of it was contained within the glass walls of a most peculiar house, outside the windows of which a huge waterwheel moved continuously to the accompaniment of a grinding noise and the fall of water. The setting became more absorbing than the figures in the drama. THE PLAYERS, under George Englund's direction, perform their roles with competence, but they might have made, a deeper impression on the audience if it hadn't been for that busy wheel rotating just outside the two-storied windows of a house n the edge of an English village. The action resembles that of "The Desperate Hours," in which a whole family is kept captive by a criminal. In "Signpost"' a woman, keeping a lonely vigil for the expected return of her husband from Holland, finds herself shut up with an eseaped convict from a nearbv mental hospital. THE PLAY BETWEEN the frightened woman and the man. who tries to impress her with the idea that he is neither a crinun--! nor insane, takes up most if the time of the action. Joanne Woodward and Stuart Whitman oer-form well together, and they are assisted by Edward Mulnare and TODAY'S CROSSWORD ANSWER IS O L B OMBR !5iU Vf ClTjO R Y TON Eft omb l ejrae H Of J t G B$J BllO U PllD AMB COJSEjCiRAmBW API ASH OOJ SiE "mm ells (Puzzle on page 70) HOTKIJ Wit RMTit HiMS Joanne Woodward and Stuart Whitman Murray Matheson, as meiical attendants of the nearby asylum. Suspense is well maintained up to the final scene, when a com p'ete and surprising change takes place in some of the characters involved.
