Seen at the ALGONA By T. H. C, I have a now "boss" — James Dougherty, who succeeds Lloyd Gray as man''per of the Algona and Stariite theatres. This continues a chain of managers which dates back to the days of Norman Rice and the old Call theatre — 30 years ago. And the present column has been running approximately that long — certainly a pillar oi' persistency — if nothing else. Algona has always been a good theatre city and we trust Dougherty will find it a pleasant community in which ices of a male James Bond, the to live and work. | officials employ a rather sexy fc* Modesty .Blaise, a current re- male (Monica Vitta) for the task, lease which opens at the Orphe-'The rest is routine spy stuff — urn theatre in Minneapolis next ihcredttable, unbelievable but week, blew into the local play- none the less exciting if you are house, unheralded and without interested in such goings-on.

She is ably supported by a good cast although Dirk Bogard of Darling, is the only actor that rings a ball with me. FOR THOSE WHO are always clamoring for good, clean, family pictures, Mary Poppins, which comes to the theatre this weekend, is the answer to your prayers. Here is an entertaining and clever film which should appeal to juvenile and adult alike, a unique circumstance. Boost clean, wholesome pictures by your cooperation. The month continues with some outstanding pictures, beginning with another Sean Connery episode and continuing with Born Free, an exciting animal film, and ending with The Ten Commandments — none oJ vhich I've seen. And as a 'sneak" note — I saw The Russians Are Coming in Minneapo- is last week and its on the September calendar. Don't you dare miss this one — a real "sleeper" and you'll laugh your head off. FROM THE National Observer of Aug. 15, 1966 — Once upon a time Hollywood was the film-production -center of the world; more movies were conceived, filmed and paid for there than anywhere else on earth. Not any more. True, Hollywood is still where the big money is, but the cameras are rolling in London and Paris. Why? Because that's where the talent is, for one thing. Also, production costs are lower in Europe than in the United States. Result: Of the 50-odd films now before cameras for the seven major American film studios. STARLITE WED. Thru SAT.
