About The daily Nebraskan. ([Lincoln, Neb.) 1901-current | View Entire Issue (Feb. 7, 1975)
Some great movie viewing is on TV this week
and Aunt Hannah recommends:
Ch. 4 (cable), 8 p.m. and Ch. 7, 10:30 p.m.:
Frenzy (movie, 1972). After more than 50
movies and nearly as many years of directing
them, this latest from Alfred Hitchcock is,
amazingly, one of his best. Despite his
"popularity," Hitchcock is one of the most
cinematic of the great cirectors. Frenzy is scarey,
deceptive and humorous.
Ch. 3, 8 p.m.: Cool Hand Luke (movie, 1967).
Back for the umpteenth repeat but still a decent
little film, with Paul Newman and an
Oscar-winning performance by Geroge Kennedy.
Ch. 12 (ETV)2:30 p.m.: Theater in America:
The Widowing of Mrs. Holroyd. Encore
TV Aunt Hannah
performance of the D. H. Lawrence drama, with
Frank Converse and Joyce Ebert.
Ch. 12 (ETV), 7:30 p.m.: Masterpiece
Theater: The Black Dog. The second adaptation
of an A.E. Coppard short story in the PBS series
entitled "Country Matters."
Ch. 12 (ETC), 7 p.m.: Hollywood Television
Theater: Requiem for a Nun. Intense William
Faulkner drama of murder and Southern racism,
with Sarah Miles as Temple. Strong stuff.
Ch. 6, 11:30 p.m.: Sorry, Wrong Number
(movie, 1948) Classic '40s mystery -mellodrama
starring Barbara Stanwyck. She overhears a
murder plot while listening in on the telephone.
Ch. 3, 12 midnight: Tomorrow. Tom Snyder
and guests examine lesbianism.
Ch. 7, 3 p.m.: Double Indemnity (movie,
1944). Barbara Stanwyck again in another bleak,
film noir mystery from the '40s. Similar to
Sorry, Wrong Number, but this time Stanwyck is
doing the plotting.
Ch. 12 (ETV), 7:30 p.m.: Ascent of Man Part
six of the series, entitled "The Starry Messenger"
and dealing with the history of astronomy. Much
of the focus is on Galileo.
Ch. 12 (ETV), 6:30 p.m.: Arabs and Israelis.
The second in this series of close-ups on the
Mid-East conflicts. This one focuses on the
women from both sides whose husbands have
been killed in the fighting.
Ch. 12 (ETV), 8 p.m.: An Hour With Dick
Gregory. Channel 1 2's Mai Adams hosts this
interview in which a variety of minority issues
Ch. 3, 9 p.m.: Sandburg's Lincoln. Hal
Holbrook portrays the 16th president in the
second of this series taken from Sandburg's
Ch. 7, 3 p.m.: Touch of Evil (movie, 1958).
The moyie of the week. Brutal, brooding
semi-B-picture directed by Orson Welles, and one
of his best. W Welles stars as a sadistic, corrupt
cop in a dingy Mexican border town. Also
starring Charlton Heston and Marlene Dietrich.
Ch. 7, 10:30 p.m.: Wide World Special Profile
on the Charles Manson murders in 1969.
Perpetual host Peter Lawford interviews two
members of the Manson "family".
Ch. 6, 11:30 p.m.: Come Back, Little Sheba
(movie, 1952). Well done, depressing little movie
about slovenly housewife Shirley Booth, who
won an Oscar for her role.
Ch. 4 (cable), 10:30 p.m.: The Petrified
Forest, (movie, 1936). This was the movie that
gave Humphrey Bogart his big break. He plays
fated killer Duke Mantee in classic mid-'30s
Warner Bros, production.
Ch. 10, 11:00 p.m.: Easy Rider, (movie,
1969). You've been away for some time if you've
never seen this one. Life and death vision of the
American hippie from Dennis Hopper and Peter
Fonda. The tremors that this movie set
reverberating through American movie trends
have finally subsided, but this remains one of the
most important films of the '60s.
Jazz artist to perform tonight
Jazz specialist Rich Matteson will perform
tonight with the UNL Lab Band at 8 p.m. in
Kimball Recital Hall, at the 17th annual Portraits
in Jazz concert.
Proceeds from the concert, sponsored by the
professional music fraternity, Phi Mu Alpha
Sinfonia, will support freshman music
scholarships. Tickets cost $2 at both the
Westbrook Box Office and the door.
The Jazz Lab Band, directed by Dennis
Schneider, will premiere UNL assistant professor
Randall Snyder's "Bay Area Rapid Transit" and
a new jazz piece by graduate student Noyes
Matteson's career as a low brass specialist has
included public school teaching, professional
arrangements, performances and recordings in all
idioms of jazz.
According to Sinfonia member Steve
Herboldsheimer, Matteson is one of the best jazz
msuicians around, able to "pick up a horn and
blow the socks off it." '
Matteson, who directs the jazz lab band
program and teaches improvisation at North
Texas State University in Denton, performs on
valve trombone, bass trumpet, euphonium, tuba
His performance will include a Duke Ellington
medley and Tommy Dorsey's "I'm Getting
Sentimental Over You."
Herboldsheimer said if the concert is as
exciting as last year's, the "audience, will be
practically out of their seats."
This afternoon, there is a low brass clinic and
workshop on jazz improvisation at the School of
Music. Low brass defines a general classification
of instruments including tuba, baritone
trombone and bass trumpet.
Matteson will be a guest, clinician tomorrow
for a jazz band workshop to be attended by 20
junior and senior high school bands.
