PAGE TWELVE ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,1963 "Torn Jones' Draws Crowd At Premier Ry ROI5 THOMAS A!' Mnvtr-THcvisinn Wrllrr HOLLYWOOD (AT 1 ! — A crowd of crlchntirs lurmxi on I for the p?-rvir\v of tlir bitost and possibly the prr.-ilrst rxuniplf of Kntrlish film making, "Tom Jones." The best picture in 10 years. . . The most most iniM.uinntive film since Citizen Kane . . . Mainiifi- «nt, . . Thrsc wnv a few of the comments overheard in t h o crowd. They \\err deserved. "Tom Jones" is (he kind of movie that is seen nil too rarely, find seldom from Hollywood any more — a tasteful, brilliant exercise using all the film medium's attributes to the fullest. "Tom Jones." Henry Fieldinp's precursor of the modern novel, could have been made into a musty costume drama. But producer-director Tony Richardson and screenwriter John Osborno used unlimited imagination to bring it to lusty life. The opening sequence, depicting Tom's illegitimate birth, is done in silent-movie technique, titles and all. Chases are speeded up, Mack Sennett-style. Some comedy scenes are done with the characters fro/en in still photos. The camera focuses in on single faces for a plot point. Actors deliver asides directly at the audience, or sometimes, merely a knowing wink. At one point Tom, to shield a scantily clad floozy, put his hand over the camera. A narrator, rich in wisdom, underscores the action with rare comments and sometimes insists on fading out on seduction scenes in orler to avoid offense and the wrath of the censor. "Tom Jones" is not for everyone. It may be too lusty for children; it is openly bawdy, not dirty. Some American adults may be bewildered by the profusion of accents. Diverted Acres Can Be Used for Pasture CARROLLTON — Beginning Oct. 1, most of the acreage diverted under the 1963 feed, grain and wheat stabilization programs will be released from program restrictions on grazing, according to announcement made by Edward J, Meagher, chairman of the Illinois Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation committee. This authorization does not extend to diverted acreage which is devoted to wildlife food plots, or diverted acreage on which grain or oilseed crops have, matured in 1963. Meagher explained that the grazing. restrictions are being relaxed as part of the general effort to keep provisions of farm programs in line with practical farming operations and to allev- ( iate, to some extent, the shortage of forage in areas containing spotty drought conditions. Meagher further explained that no harvesting or other removal for any purpose of a crop on the diverted acres is authorized. Hospital Notes CARROLLTON — Mrs. Frances Freeh of Carrollton was admitted Tuesday to Boyd Memorial Hospital for surgery. Admitted Tuesday as medical patients were Jeffrey Moore of Greenfield and Mrs. Laura Mae Price of Carrollton. Dismissed Tuesday were Mrs. Hazel Wagener, Mrs. Mildred Vinyard and Mrs. Sarah Israel of Carrollton and Miss Rita Joiner ol Rockbridge. t - ,...i: i ..: irau TfeUST US-OVER 4 MILLION HAVE-SINCE 1898 300 EAST BROADWAY Our Large Purchasing Power Makes This Offer Possible! * RENEW YOUR HOME FURNISHINGS AND SAVE, TOO!
