Marquee [.Salina movies ; ~ Baby — Secret of the Lost Legend :— William Katt as a sportswriter ; and Sean Young as his paleontologist wife adopt a baby brontosaurus ; on an African camping trip in this •fantasy-adventure, and then risk '. everything to reunite it with its r mother and to keep evil scientists ; from subjecting it to ruthless exper- timents. The "fabulous dinosaurs :will delight pre-adolescent au- ;diences, but the film is otherwise .just one more bad bwana/good ; bwana jungle adventure," say USA > Today reviewers Jack Mathews and •Mike Clark. — Mid-State Cinema, ; Rated PG ;'.- Friday the 13th Part V - This is ; the fifth in the series of phenomenally profitable slash-and-hack horror films. Their principal appeal, says New York Times reviewer Vin• cent Canby, is the spectacle of new, fresh-faced Hollywood actors in ; their early 20s playing teenagers, -who'get chopped up by a masked : fiend using a machete. This one, set • in a bucolic half-way house for disturbed children, "appears to have •^been paced by a metronome — a ijoke followed by a murder followed ;by a joke followed by a murder, un- ;til all but one of the featured players have been exterminated," says Canby. "It's worth recognizing only as an artifact of our culture." — iSunset Plaza Cinema, Rated R '•:'. Mask — Eric Stoltz is Rocky Den- ;nis, the 16-year-old afflicted with a rare bone disease which balloons •his head to twice its normal size. •The movie is based on a true story. .'.'Anyone looking for a good, up- .{ifting cry should be well satisfied ;by ... Peter Bogdanovich's tale ...," jvrites Variety. "Beautifully acted -and executed ... Stoltz ... brings a •lively, life-affirming personality to !his role without a trace of self-pity. "Equally fine is Cher (the mother), ;who perfectly suggests a hard exte- ! rior covering a wealth of conflicting : and confused feelings." - Mid"State Cinema, Rated PG-13 f- Nightmare on Elm Street — John iSaxon and Ronee Blakley play the ^parents of a young woman (Heather •Langenkamp) being stalked by a •long-dead murderer who has re- •iurned from the grave to wreak ihavoc on teenagers. Vincent Canby ;:ln the New York Times says "the iihonster is played by Robert Eng;Iund, but what he looks like is any•body's guess, since he wears a lot of •masks that are about as scary as Shose worn by extremely small Irick-or-treaters on Halloween."— ;8l Drive-In, Rated R I Police Academy 2 — The misfits from the original movie are as•signed to clean up a dangerous •neighborhood. Mike Clark of USA Today says "... no one concerned ;'with this endeavor broke much of a Sweat concocting the story line.... : With no story to speak of, 'PA2' is •.Wholly dependent on its individual gags (like) Bob Goldthwait as a Speech-impeded psychotic who loves TV's 'Family Affair.' In fact, Goldthwait's screen debut is such a •pear-classic that it'll deserve recognition long after the film is forgotten. In other words, anytime after ;May 1." — Fox Theater, Rated PG- 13 /Porky's Revenge - The original "Porky's," says Janet Maslin of the New York Times, was, for better or "worse, something new. "But its pee- phole humor and its brand of friendly, adolescent sexual antagonism have been imitated enough to make "Porky's Revenge" just another brand-name teen-age movie." The same characters are back in the third film of the series, "having now grown into the oldest high school seniors in America. They continue to play dumb practical jokes on one another and on their teachers, who remain sex-crazed numbskulls ... Some of it is funny, but it's also entirely predictable ... The best thing about the film is its soundtrack." — Sunset Plaza Cinema, Rated R The Slugger's Wife - This Neil Simon script concerns an attractive wife whose career is overshadowed by the immense celebrity of her husband. So he decides she must leave home to do her own thing. She is a rock singer, played by Rebecca De Mornay, and he is an outfielder for the Atlanta Braves, played by Michael O'Keefe. He, of course, suffers a slump when she leaves. Says Bob Thomas, movie critic for the Associated Press, "The rock songs, though ably performed, become noisy and repetitious. What saves 'The Slugger's Wife' from striking out entirely are the attractive performances. Michael O'Keefe is believable ... and Miss De Mornay is equally appealing ... Randy Quaid, as the happy-go-lucky shortshop, again impresses as one of Holly- wood's ablest young character actors." — Vogue, Rated PG-13 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre — This gory, violence-ridden cult film has become a drive-in classic. A murderer stalks his victims with his revved up chainsaw. — 81 Drive-In, Rated R — Compiled by Lori Brack Movies and specials 6 p.m. — Walt Disney World's Happy Easter Parade, ABC, Salina Cable Channels 9 and 10 Joan Lunden and Rick Dees are co-hosts for the 14th annual Easter parade from Florida's Walt Disney World. 7 p.m. — Florence Nightingale, NBC, Salina Cable Channels 3 and 4 Jaclyn Smith, Timothy Dalton (premiere). A 19th-century English noblewoman sacrifices the privileges of aristocracy to study nursing and emerges as a national heroine by revolutionizing British medical care. 7 p.m. — Superman n, ABC, Salina Cable Channels 9 and 10 Christopher Reeve, Margot Kidder (1981). While saving Paris from a nuclear explosion, Superman unwittingly frees three powerful villains who were originally imprisoned by his Kryptonian father. 7:30 p.m. — The King's Thief, Salina Cable Channel 41 Edmund Purdom, Ann Blyth (1955). Vitorino Mexican rocker has weighty act MEXICO CITY (APJ - He rocks to the beat of Bill Haley and the Comets and rolls like Fats Domino, and at 348 pounds, Vitorino has landed heavily on the Latin American music scene. He exploits his weight to push his act and bills himself as "348 pounds of Rock." "Whatever Vitorino has in weight, he also has as a good singer and composer," the specialized "Musical Notes" magazine said. Others have compared him to Fats Domino or Barry White. Vitorino, 35, whose style is similar to such 1950s stars as Bill Haley and the Comets, said he is the first purveyor of authentically Mexican rock music. He made his debut in November, and his songs quickly grabbed airplay on the radio while he became a familiar figure on the major television programs in Mexico. His songs include: "No te voy a rogar," or "I'm Not Going to Beg"; "Somos Rockers," or "We are Rockers"; and "Es el rock y escu- chen," or "It's Rock, and Listen." "My secret has been the creation of a new sound, without imitating anyone — something really ours, since never before has anyone made Mexican rock which would respect our roots," he said in an interview with The Associated Press.
