Glenda Jackson, Susannah York and Viwen Merchant, stars of the first American Film
Theater presentation , The Maids.
Film theatre begins '75 season
By Greg Lukow
The Second Season. That's the billing the
American Film Theatre is giving its 1975 series of
motion pictures taken from great theatrical
The season begins Tuesday with the
presentation of Jean Genet's The Maids. This
year the films are being shown exclusively and
for one day only at the downtown Stuart
Theatre. Vie Maids will be followed by four
more films, one each during the next four
months. They are: Tiie Man in the Glass Booth,
March 4; Bertholt Brecht's Galileo, April 8;
Jaeque Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris
(from a screenplay by Eric Blau), May 6; and
David Storey's In Celebration, which completes
the series, June 3.
There will be three showings of each film on
these days. In addition to the regular
subscription showings at 2 and 8 p.m., there will
be special 5 p.m. presentations for which tickets
will be sold on an individual basis. This showing
was arranged at this time by the AFT and the
Stuart theatre so that Lincoln senior high
students and classes can take advantage of the
films in the series. The 5 p.m. presentation is
open to the general public as well, and will be the
least expensive of the show times.
Tickets for this 5 o'clock showing are $1.50
each, and can be purchased a week in advance.
Subscription rates for the 2 p.m. pertormances
will cost $12.50 for adults and $10 for students.
Evening performance subscriptions will cost $20.
The first film, The Maids, stars two-time
Oscar-winner Glenda Jackson, along with
Susannah York and Vivien Merchant. It is the
story of two maids who act out a love-hate
relationship with their mistress. It deals with
themes of illusion and reality and the search for
ones place amid the roles that society forces
upon people. Genet himself was a social outcast
(he once was sentenced to life imprisonment, and
was saved only after a pardon was requested by
fellow intellectuals) and he has been called a
"poet of alienation."
The Man in the Glass Booth stars Maximillian
Schell as a New York Jew accused of having been
a Nazi concentration camp commandant. If a
special pre-release preview film can be any
indication, his performance will be magnificent.
Galileo start Topol Fiddler on the Roof) as
one of history's great rebels in this drama from
Brecht's epic theater. The movie is directed by
Joseph Losey, who knows the play well since he
directed the original American stage version in
In Celebration is a funny, caustic look at
attitudes and alienation within a British family
relationship. And, of course, Jaeque Brel's
fascinating, contemporary music should be well
known to Uncolnites, with the current
Community Playhouse production being an
No big names, but music good
There are no really hi? names in town this
weekend, but there is no dearth of good music
One act that continues to please a lot of
people (myself included) is the dependable
Biuegrass Crusade, appearing at St. George and
the Dragon this weekend. St. George's tends to
y 'yfl E
grow on people after a while, since the lower
level is blessedly free of gimmickry and bright
lights. The people could be a bit livelier, though.
The Bijou Review is performing at the
Rendezvous Lounge. Weil-known to Omaha and
Lincoln audiences, the Biious are nothinc if not
polished. Having only heard them once, I will
offer no evaluation of their musical charms,
other than to say that friends of mine who have
heard them more than once have been fairly
John Walker and Pete B'akeslee are picking
along at the Red Rose Lounge Friday and
If these selections leave you colder than our
current execrable climate, may I suggest that
since Lincoln is finally getting a couple of new
movies into town, there are worse tilings to do
with the weekend that blow a few hours in
contemplation of the silver screen?
In particular, I point to Murder on the Orient
Express, starting today at the Plaza 4 theater, as
a good choice. It has garnered generally favorable
reviews, and as a confederate oi mine remarked,
it isn't very often you can see so many for so
long m such a little set.
