§*At£ONA (Itwa) AOVANCI THURSDAY, OCT. tO t t«M Seen at the ALGONA By T. H. C. A second viewing of the first half of Virginia Woolf (I saw the entire picture in Minneapolis a month ago) confirms my previous judgment, i.e., by concentrating on the performance of Taylor and Burton, you come away — not especially exhilarated, but at least with the feeling that you've seen two superior actors. I presume there are instances of marital bickering such as are depicted in this picture, including even the obscenities and fre- QUent use of blasphemous words, put they scarcely lend themselves to a restful evening at the movies. But sometimes a glimpse at what's going on in some households is revealing, I've always been sonttwhat repelled by the scenes' of excessive drinking, but Since it mirrors a cross-section of our human vices, perhaps we should be allowed to see it on the screen. THE SCENE between Burton and Segal in the garden is a masterpiece of restrained acting — and Burton displays the technique that has lifted him into the front ranks of a gifted actor. Taylor is attractive, even as a flowry, fat wife, given to abusive language and indiscreet actions. Virginia Woolf at least opens the door to adult entertainment which in my book is a step in the right direction. With strict supervision at the box office, there, certainly can be no harm in adults viewing adult plays such as are being shown on our metropolitan stage. There are, and always will be, Walt Disneys for the kiddies. The Return of the 7 looks like Want a strong boot that's lightweight too?
