I Obviously it takes inex- ijaustible energy and a certain amount of nerve to at- $2mpt this after hours cnter- (fiinnient (at '10:45 p.m. after 'SUncle Vanya"). Dressed in denim street- clothes, walking casually from < microphone to a book-laden S taircase to a table, he moves dpsily from country-western toT. S. Eliot to "I Can't Give. Tou Anything But Love, llaby" (including a quick cho- nus on the piano). Have i aniuel Beckett and "Blue J uede Shoes" ever appeared di the same bill before? i The ultimate criterion of s uch a virtuoso entertainment i > the quality of the performance. Not surprisingly, the i ctor's readings are superla- i ve. He turns the love 'song <f J. Alfred Prufrock into an ejctremely actable dramatic monologue and his Beckett ^rom "How It Is") is unforgettable—a harrowing pic- lure of the desperation, fright ajnd hysteria of a man dying. I The surprise of the evening is Williamson as a pop singer. Backed by a terrific six-piece |lectrified combo, he sings ef- Bortlessly. Were one not aware of the actor's previous accomplishments ui the theater, one would accept him completely as an American pop star. Pinocchio A musical play (or children ,, Onstage!

Tues thru Sat. Golden Bills COUNTRY CLUB AND RESORT 6901 East Broadway • Mesa i/ 2 mile south of Apache Trail on Power Road taken up with a period western love story from the female perspective. Unfortunately, Miss Miles' lust-in-the-dust pyrotechnics are never fully realistically . characterized, and the viewer never quite understands her motivation in runniHg from hubby, getting involved with train robbers — led by Burt — and ultimately charging his batteries and "bringing him around to want her. There's also the other plot- line, dealing with the reason Burt previously spent eight years in the cooler for manslaughter. He'd wasted the man who raped his Indian wife, Cat Dancing. Truth will out, as the cliche goes, and subsequently we learn via the children he fathered in the marriage to the Indian maid that lie is equally guilty of her rage-inspired throttling. At least we understand his heavy, guilt-laden heart and why he's been putting off Miss Miles' ultimate winning advances. At the risk of sounding like "THE:; MAN WHO LOVED CAT DANCING," (PC)! Starring Burt Reynolds, Sarah Miles, Lee J. Cobb, Jack Warden and George Hamilton. At Cam- clback Mall Cinema and Cinema Park Drive-In. a Burt Reynolds fan, we would say the lengthy, turgid and tiring tale (a case of Eleanor -Perry over-writing the script, some of which sparkles, nonetheless) does provide him with an acting role in which he's able to con- :vey mature, emotional depth and credible portraiture. As the Jay Grobard of Marilyn Durham's well-received best seller of the same name, Reynolds definitely proves he can act his way out of a Cosmopolitan center spread. (Unfortunately, I d i d n 't read the book. Those who have and advised of same, seem to have found it far more absorbing and exciting than the filmization to this reviewer.)

Sat, 9 A,M, to Noon Crocker is a disappointment, save for two gem-like sequences where the feisty English actress projects mightily with facial expressions rather than verbalisms. Director Richard Sarafian should share honors for his involvement with these scenes. The disappointment with Miles lies not in her predilection for (and seeming cnjoy- ment of) masocWsm, fcul to i portrayal so devoid of clear- cut realism, one wonders if she ever really got to understand the character (or Miss Perry's uneven adaptation of the novel read and enjoyed by millions). A copout could be that the David Whiting-Gila Bend tragedy subconsciously shook her so that she never quite could shake it off before the cameras. Yes, the Arizona locations (and the Utah ones, too) are visually spectacular and enhancing to the tale. John Williams' musical score in ear- rewarding. And small character delights by Bo Hopkins and Jack Warden are appreciated. Bui "The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing" will generate its box-office steam strictly from the headline-hot star pairing. It is slightly less thrilling otherwise. Dip & Dine What a way to wind up a week!
