Cassc ove movies to return
By Mark Kjeldgaard
Popular taste is hard to understand
sometimes, because it is filled with
contradictions. The same people who love
great films adore terrible ones. For example,
Love Story, Gone With the Wind and Doctor
Zhivago are all playing in the Weekend Film
Series this fall and all three will draw big
crowds, as they have done before.
Gone With the Wind keeps blowing past,
and after 34 years of circulation it still draws
masses of fans.
Its theme merits close attention, for it
thoughtfully documents the ruin of the
Confederacy. In Scarlett O'Hara, the South
assumes the hardened depravity of a woman
who has been repeatedly degraded, and that
is the core of the film's seriousness.
The movie has a few Hollywood flaws:
Scarlett has an overbearingly Irish father; the
romance is driven too hard ("Oh, Ashley!"),
and the screeching and eye-rolling of
Scarlett's stereotypical slave gir,l is downright
painful. Nevertheless, Gone.With the Wind is
rewarding overall, a,nd'its prominence as
entertainment is culturally sound.
Doctor Zhivago's perennial success also
compliments the popular taste. Like Gone
With the Wind it characterizes a displaced
aristocracy and is a romantic tragedy set
against a backdrop of cataclysm.
Unfortunately, it suffers from awkward
explanatory lines, the plague ot historical
films ("You're not a Bolshevik, are you,
Pasha?") and from too much of Maurice
Jarre's sugary music during reunion scenes.
Visually Zhivago is a marvel. David Lean
uses the wide screen movingly, surrounding
the personal affairs with vast action and
emphasizing the sad insignificance of the
lovers before the revolutionary avalanche.
Everybody seems to like Doctor Zhivago
and it's worthy of admiration.
What, then, can we make of Love Story's
Love Story is insubstantial. Its music is
worse than gushy - it is ugly, and the script
is jumpy, like the book. The whole mess
relies on trite responses to familiar items.
Three successful romantic movies. All
three are based on books, two good books
and a rotten one. Likewise, two movies are
good and one is rotten. Why, then, does
Love Story rank as a sentimental favorite
alongside Doctor Zhivago and Gone With the
you have my word
Wind? My explanation is: people are
attracted to romantic tragedy by their
fondness for emotion. A good film offers a
reason for feeling, and a bad one offers an
It's a great new football program from the Daily Nebr
askan, with a detailed roster and interesting reading.
And it's only 100. Pick up First Down from Corn Cobs
on campus before the game.
