'!if*:*8itf^ Fiancee Of Wesley Man MR. AND MRS. Fred Longoria of Greenbush, Mich., announce the engagement of their daughter, Vicky, to Sgt. Duane Kunkel, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Kunkel of Wesley. Sgt. Kunkel is stationed at Wurtsmith Air Force Base in Oscoda, Mich. Their wedding date has been set for Sept. 4. BY Dick Godfredsen First I would like to thank the old pro (THC) for filling in for me in his inimitable way the past couple weeks. Far from "Minding", I appreciate it and enjoy reading his comments again as I am certain do most of you. The local screen really has a contrast in the two latest attractions. The "X" rated'and notorious "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" followed by the very "G" rated Disney release "The Aris- tocats". This is fine and as it should be. Everyone to his own taste without the aid of censors who would tell us what we can and cannot see. It is just as easy to stay home from a film you don't like as it is to turn off the knob on the TV when it has a program that does not meet your fancy. But you should have that choice. As was the case with THC, this reviewer also thought that "The Babymaker" was a fine, well-made film. They tookavery off-beat subject (a hippie girl agrees to serve as a baby maker for a sterile woman) and turned out a film that could have been dirty, but wasn't. A bit soaper- ish, perhaps, but quite touching in places and the performances were such that the people came alive. Barbara Hersey is a beautiful, talented young actress and she made the hippie girl completely believable, Colin Wilcox was.; .even; better.:,as the: woman who could not have a child of her own but was willing to settle for one that is her husbands and that she can raise as her own from the moment of birth. Her eyes are so expressive she barely needs any other acting tools. Phyllis Coates, who was a serial jungle queen back in the early 1950s, had a brief part as the mother of the hippie girl. Was nice to see her again. Although I had seen "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" once, I went again to watch the pretty girls and to check the local audience reaction to an "X" rated film. I must admit enjoying the picture more on second viewing, probably because I caught it from the beginning this time and the think plot held together much better when viewed in the correct sequence. Sexy and bloody though it may be, you could never call it dull or boring. I heard no adverse comment from the few people I have discussed the film with. The Tuesday nite crowd was above average in size, for a week nite, and a well behaved audience it was. The moralistic little narration after the violent climax no doubt had much to do with making the film more palatable. The outlandish characters were well played with John LaZar giving a wildly funny performance as the chief wierdo in residence, "Z-Man" or "Super Woman" as he called himself, depending on his proclivities. Dolly Read and Cynthia Myers are two extremely attractive young ladies, and they filled the lead parts in good style. The music was quite interesting to someone unfamiliar with Rock, and it added to the show business setting. On the subject of "X" rated films, the Triple X theatre in Mason City has not caused the Park 70 to stop showing an "X" film once a month. There was one last week called "Thar She Blows". Not bad. This is the time of year when we see many lists of the "Ten Best" films of the past year. This is to advise that you will not be bored with any such listing in this column. "Motion Picture Herald" just released a list of the ten best box office stars for 1970. Paul Newman headed the list. And last year was the year of "WUSA", too. It must be his blue eyes. Iowa Lakes C.
