Of this list, only two, Dr. Strangclovc and Hard Day's Night, has been shown at the Algona, and that one, I'm forced to say. left me "cold". 1 saw it twice because 1 heard that it was a good show and again, I'm forced to admit that 1 could sec little of great merit. True, it was satire and well clone but 1 have yet to talk with anyone who would agree that it should be placed in the list of the "ten best." Here is Crowther's review of Dr. Strangelove: "As grotesque and "sick" as was the satire projected by this film — insane and incompetent Air Force generals and top government officials cause the destruction of the world by a nuclear bomb — it was an extraordinary cinematic creation, excitingly written, directed and played by Peter Sellers, Sterling Haydcn, George C. Scott, Kccnan Wynn and a large cast." I MADE a special effort to sec One Potato, Two Potato and again I must disagree with Bro. Crowther's judgment. I found it boring and utterly unsavory in theme, altho it showed clearly the racial problem. Here is Crowther's review: "By virtue of a clear and cogent screenplay and a business-like nautralistic style, this urgent drama of a white mother's anguish when she is faced with having to give up her child because she has married a Negro was the most forceful and impressive American- made drama of the year.

It'was a good show but didn't merit that distinction. Here are Crowther's comments: "The big surprise of the year, was this rambunctious and wildly free-wheeling comedy presenting the mop- haired Beatles, the Liverpool rock-and-roll quartet. It was farce in the old Marx Brothers manner—that is, extravagantly eccentric action, blended with a clatter 01 crazy dialog—giving an illusion of complete spon- aneity.
