2-ALGONA (Iowa) ADVANCE THURSDAY, AUG. 25, 1966 Seen at the ALGONA By T. H. C. -.-f hur§day and Friday "Born Free" 7:00-9:07. —Saturday ' "Born Free" 1:30-7:00-9:07. —Sunday Thru Wednesday "The Ten Commandments'" 2:00 and 8:00 p.ni: Desoite some rather "hike warm" reviews by most of the professional critics, I found A Fine Madness an entertaining and diverting picture. It cast' Sean Cdtt^ery in a comedy role a departure from his Jamer Bond roles in which he plays the "heavy." He still surrounds himself With a trioi of attractive women — Jean Seberg. Sue Amp Langdon and Colleen Dewhurst but his male supporting cast i r equally effective — Patrick O'Neal. Vernon Peters and Jackie Coogan. The plot is simple enough, to be easy to follow. An unsuccessful poet Connery finally accepts an invitation to give a lecture before a womans club for S200. Beseiged by collectors, he is double-crossed by his wife who spends the money to send him to a psychiatrist. From there on. the action is fast and furious and it all adds up to a pleasant evening's entertainment. BORN FREE, which comes tc the Algona for the weekend, re ceived a warm welcome when i1 played at the Gopher theatre in Minneapolis a few weeks ago as attested by the long lines oi waiting patrons who lined up a box offirq. The success of Daktari on TV shows the inter 2st the public has iri African an- mal features. This should be mother family film and bids air to do a goid box office biz. That perennial Biblical favor- te, De Mille's Ten Command- nents, makes another appear mce this next Sunday (Aug. 28 hru 31) and is always an inter esting and semi-authentic pre entation of the life of Moses t's a super-spectacle and invol- •es such trick photography as the opening of the Red Sea. This should make good Sunday "see ng" fare, if you are interested n this sort of thing. All I can say is that it's probably better than an Ed Sullivan re-run. Next week we'll review the September calendar. FAMILY MOVES TO ALGONA Royal Mold, assistant vice-president of the Iowa State bank, Algona, moved his family here from Osage last Saturday.
