C. Because Stagecoach was first released in 1939 and because it really started the trend towards the "classic" westerns as we know them today and because the current remake of this famous film has just been shown at tho local theatre, it seems fitting that a few comments be ad ded to the last week's rather voluminous review. Time magazine really touched off the controversy with a rather flippant and caustic commenta •ry. This is what it says in part "In this ill starred remake, Bing Crosby plays Thomas Mitchell'; doctor role with more flippan humor, fewer .prickly insights novie suggests once more that present film, I have only a sin- [ollyWood's twice-told tales seUj gle comment, i: e., the selection 'not-the past as much as lufTdef it." Here we have the mart, wise-cracking critic employing clever alliteration to •-.loud the issue. The review closes with this caustic comment: "In case they don't know what they have missed, the oast ought to sit home some night and catch the real hing on. the late show." As if ,hey hadn't. While iiiy recollection of the of Ann Margaret as the hard- boiled prostitute was a mistake. While her one scene with Ringo, as he attempts to escape, is effective and well done, she could scarcely match the faultless portrayal of Claire Trevor who played the original version. There's an old saying that "comparisons are odious" and in the present case, I think this applies. Thefe are so many basic improvements in the making original movie is a bit hazy and of motion pictures today and never having seen the original film on TV, I would like to make a few comments of my own. In the first place, Time's comment (also in the review) that the pic- there are so many aspects to the various roles and their significance, that I believe many professional critics are going to fall on their faces in their appraisal ture is "dull going" is far off, of the new Stagecoach. base—the final scenes of the Indian attack on the stagecoach are thrilling and realistic, if a trifle implausible. IN THE SECOND place, how could comparison be made between the original black and white edition and the handsome, gorgeous technicolor background of the current production. As I won't comment on Jerry Lewis' 3 on a Couch as I know I'd bs very biased and the preyues of Promise Her Anything indicate that this might be adult fare, but I'm looking forward to Modesty Blaise, A Fine Madness and Born Free. A good line-up of current releases. HP* '' 1964 MERCURY Monterey 4-door, Breezeway roof, Power Steering, Multi-drive transmission, radio, two-tone turquoise and white top. 1963 AMBASSADOR 4-dr.
