Sharif, Andrews team up
What do you get when you cross
Omar Sharif with Julie Andrews?
Nothing. Unless you're Omar Sharif,
in which case you get a lot of frustration.
The proof is in The Tamarind Seed,
one of those mildly entertaining,
backrtd-basics-movie movies that is
equal parts runaround spy drama and
The movie was directed by Blake
Edwards who used to do all those
mid-'60s pseudo-slapstick comedies like
The Pink Panther and The Great Race.
Some of his light sex comedies such as A
Shot In the Dark, were well ahead of
their time and had a lot of influence on
the American comedy in the last decade.
. But The Tamarind Seed (don't ask
'about the title, it doesn't matter
anyway) is way behind the times. Miss
Andrews, with her nauseating ly perfect
British enunciation, throws out a lot of
dumb lines like "I've just had one
miserable love affair and I don't intend
to have another."
Sharif (is he really that good look
ing?) uses all his suave powers of
production and pretty boy charm as he
counters with lines like "You like me,
don't you?" She does, but they don't.
At least not until the film Is nearly over,
when we get one of those very boring,
waking up'in the morning, sheet pulled
descreetly up to the shoulders, token
love scenes we've all seen a million
Julie isn't exactly singing "Do Re
Me" in this movie, but all talk and nO
play make Omar a dull boy. :
German director F. VV. Murnau's
1922 expressionistic horror classic
Nosferatu will be shown at Sheldon
again this weekend as part of their
HorrorFantasy Series. If you didn't see
it last semester, do so. this time around
because it's probably the second best
vampire film ever made.
The best may well be Vampyr a 1932 ,

Carl Dreyer, also showing this weekend
