Array The bucks stop here on UBC payroll
Today's $64,000 question costs almost
$8,000 more than it did two years ago.
The question is: Who is the highest paid
official at UBC? The answer is not who you
.might expect.
Administration president Doug Kenny
runs a poor second in earning power compared to assistant surgery professor Patrick
James Moloney, who pulled down a whopping $71,096 salary for the 1978-79
academic year. It is the highest salary ever
paid at UBC.
Kenny had a hefty pay cheque in his own
right, collecting $68,215 — only slightly
more than Joe Clark earns as prime
He is also one of 10 university professors and administrators who belong to the
elite 60-Grand Club, according to UBC's financial statement released this week.
Kenny was closely followed in the upper
wage-earning bracket by medicine head
John Herbert Dirks ($65,963) and pediatrics head Henry Dunn ($63,861).
Vice-presidents Chuck Connaghan, Michael Shaw, Erich Vogt and William White
received $62,384 each, while special advisor
to the president Charles Bourne hauled in
Ecology professor Crawford Holling
barely squeaked into the 60-Grand Club,
earning $60,000 on the nose.
The figures also show that 69 people on
salary at UBC earned more than $50,000, a
major swing from 1977 when only 27 belonged to the 50-Grand Club.
But there were no women professors with
salaries large enough to make the top
twenty-five. In fact, only one woman
ranks among this year's 69: Mavis Teas-
dale, who collected $54,724 as an associate
professor of pediatrics.
The salary information is available in
UBC's financial statement, which the university is forced to publish under the provisions of the Public Bodies Financial Information Act of 1961. Besides publishing a
table of all salaries paid to university employees, it contains UBC's balance sheet
and statement of revenues and expenses, as
well as the money spent on supplies and services.
The book is available in the special collection section of the main library and can
be bought for $5 in the bookstore.

AMS morality
worth $2,000
UBC's Alma Mater Society has
been threatened with more than
$2,000 a year in bank service
charges if they refuse to redeposit
some of the society's short term
loans in the SUB Bank of Montreal
The AMS moved its short term
deposits from the bank last year to
a credit union to protest the bank's
investments in apartheid South
Africa and the military junta of
But bank manager Stuart Clark
now says the bank might be forced
to start charging the AMS for services it has always provided free
because they are losing too much
money on the AMS account.
He said the bank has traditionally
not charged for services on the
AMS daily account, night deposits,
foreign exchange and drafts because
it is a non-profit organization
representing the students — and
because it had a substantial collec
tion of short-term deposits at tne
Glenn Wong, student board of
governors member, said the bank is
trying to pressure the AMS into
choosing between its morals and its
pocket book.
"They're putting the squeeze on
us and trying to hit where it counts
— money," said Wong, a former
AMS finance director.
He said the bank is entirely ignoring the moral issues involved in the
AMS decision and viewing the question with a profit and loss mentality.
"They're dealing strictly in
money terms, but the AMS has to
think about money and principles."
But Clark said when the student
representative assembly decided to
withdraw the short-term deposits,
the bank was left losing money on
the AMS services and on AMS
loans which he claimed were
granted at favorable rates with an

SFU students protest

An anti-cutback committee at
Simon Fraser University has called
for a student protest against a proposed research park on campus.
The student and staff against cut-
backs committee has been
distributing leaflets outlining opposition to the park for the past few

have always thought it was amusing that the so-called educated
masses up there would devote so
much time to running up and

"It's not a silly statement by the
bus drivers," said Dr. Bill
Buchan, staff physician at the
UBC family practice unit.
He said the problem of jogging

UBC's director of intramural
sports said that air pollution along
University Boulevard has little impact on intramural jogging programs.
"I don't think the traffic we've
had during the noon hours has
been heavy enough to cause a problem," said Nestor Korchinsky.
He said the intramural runs are
now taking place along Wesbrook
Mall and through the university's
residential areas rather than along
the boulevard, but most joggers
prefer the boulevard as a matter
of convenience.
this decreased funding is going
directly into the subsidization of
corporate research and profits,"
the leaflet states.
Companies will pay $1,000 per
acre in annual rent for property
which could command up to
$15,000 per acre on the market, the
committee said.
The university stands to lose
about $11 million over 10 years in
the deal even if land prices don't go
up, according to the committee.
The SFU student society has also
passed a motion condemning the
research park.
"The society has taken the position that the present scheme is a
direct subsidy to private corporations at the expense of post-
secondary education," said external
relations officer Doug Fleming.
The only confirmed tenant for
the 80 acre research park is B.C.
Telephone, which made $12 million
iii profit during the first six months
of this year and which stands to
gain substantially from the rent
agreement for the research park,
the leaflet states.
SFU student leaders have charged
that corporations are being subsidized while students are being cut
back. The budget allocation for
their library is more than $500,000
short of what is needed, they said.

Admin fails to halt nuclear debate
An administration attempt to
sabotage a nuclear energy debate at
Simon Fraser University will not
stop the event, student leaders said
A meeting Thursday morning
between SFU administration president George Pedersen and dean of
student studies Bill Stewart ended
any hope the administration would
keep a three-week promise and
deliver the $2,000 to help sponsor
the event.
But student society external relations officer Doug Fleming said
the money would be found.

on," Fleming said.
Stewart said funds were withdrawn because the speakers were all
against nuclear development.

Chaplain knocks
campus crusade
The "Dynamic Sex" campaign
by the Campus Crusade for Christ
directly reflects the North American
happiness culture, a UBC minister
said Thursday.
"In North America today in
terms of religion they (religious
organizations) are offering people
everything. Success in business,
health, wealth, happiness," said
Rev. Don Johnson, chaplain of the
Lutheran Campus Centre.
"It makes me feel ill at ease to
hear my fellow Christians say that if
you come and believe, all these exciting things will happen to you,"
Johnson said.
Responsibility, struggling, and
"picking up crosses" as well as enjoyment are all components of life
according to the New Testament, he

Crusade speaker Rusty Wright,

Theatre Wednesday, did not address himself to the issues people

"Inflation will not be met (in the
budget). Class sizes are increasing
and there is a problem with overcrowding," said Fleming.
"No tutorial is supposed to have

he said.
Fleming also said the whole

"Christians need to cut through
old concepts that hang heavily upon
us and learn to celebrate our bodies
in new ways," Johnson said.
The promotional aspects of the
lecture puzzled him, Johnson said.
The talk was preceeded by a "silly advertising campaign, trying to

he said.
Bank forecloses

options of AMS

understanding the AMS would remain a customer.
"If the AMS decides to alter its
practice, then we will too," said
The AMS currently places its
short-term deposits at the Vancouver City Savings Credit Union,
but student politicians Bruce Armstrong and Craig Brooks will introduce a motion at Wednesday's
SRA meeting to have that policy
Armstrong, who is also a student
board of governors member, said
the AMS should stop "sitting on
the fence" and bank entirely with
the Bank of Montreal or take their
business to a more politically
satisfactory bank or credit union.
"If the AMS doesn't want to
bank with them, then they should
pull all their money out. But does
the AMS wish to pay for this policy,
and if they do, who are they going
to get the money from and where
are they going to bank?"
He said the cost of switching to
an off-campus bank would result in
service charges, carrier and armored
car bills, and a total inconvenience
cost of more than $12,000 per year.
"We'd have to hire somebody to
carry our money, it's unreasonable
to ask our own employees to take
the personal risk."

talked to (Pedersen) this morning
and we concluded that no administration funds would be provided," Stewart said.
Debate organizer Alan Timber-
lake denied the charge that the debate would be one-sided.
"We have people from both
sides, but it's meant to be a discus
sion, not any of this pro-anti kind
of bullshit," he said.
"The main problem was opposition from the physics department.
Other departments are
enthusiastic," Timberlake added.
The opposition was organized by
physics professor and board of
governors member Klaus
Rieckhoff, who said money should
not be contributed to such an "ill-
thought out, poorly planned enterprise."
"The university did the right
thing. (The debate) did not meet the
criteria to pass the board of governors," he said.
Timberlake was not enthusiastic
about the fate of the debate, but
Fleming said the student society
would try to stage the debate without administration help.

Harry hammers home complaint
Vancouver city, council is developing a big brother attitude, furniture dealer Harry Hammer told
400 people in Law 101 Thursday.
"I feel an encroachment of government into personal freedom,"
said Hammer, who has been charged with gross misbehavior under
city bylaws for opening his furniture store on Sundays.
Hammer attacked individual
council members Harry Rankin,
Doug Little and Bernice Gerard, for
opposing him.
Gerard is "the great exponent of
tolerance, religion and Christianity," he said.
"If she is so concerned with the
nudity at Wreck Beach, then why
the hell does she go there?" he asked.
'Pornography glorifies dominance'
Pornography is a form of hate literature that glorifies male power
and dominance over women and
whose profits are reaped by men,
says a women's studies researcher.
Jillian Ridington told a lunch
hour audience of 25 at the women's
resource centre on Robson Street
that pornography is degrading and
aimed at making women feel unimportant.
"It creates two mutually exclus
ive casts of people and promotes inequality," she said.
Ridington called soft-core porn,
like that found in Playboy and Penthouse magazines, sexist and
offensive and said it should be
ignored. Hard-core pornography
that explicitly presents females in
physically subservient roles causes
women to think they must suffer in
order to please, she said.
Materials that depicted females in
dominant roles are equally degrad
ing because they are products of
scenarios imagined by men, she added.
Ridington said pornography contributes to sexual harassment and
rape and in essence condones all
form of female abuse.
Pornography is not a question of
censorship versus freedom but one
of whose freedom is being protected, that of the pornographer or
that of the public, she said.
Hammer said council has used
"political arguments and technicalities" to make an example of his
business. He has been charged under city ordinance 247 rather than
the Lord's Day Act, which prohibits commercial businesses from
being open on Sundays.
The Lord's Day Act must
be enforced by the provincial attorney-general, who has termed it "archaic" and has refused to enforce
it, he said.
Hammer said his main argument
with city council was their inconsistency in enforcing laws.
"The laws should be the same for
everyone. Gambling is supposed to
be illegal in Canada, but horse racing is okay. What is sacrosanct
about Sunday? Anyone's faith is
purely a private matter."
Making Sunday a day of rest is
tantamount to imposing a state religion on the populace, Hammer
said. Page 4

Our winning choice, for the official with the fattest bankbook, is
. . . Patrick James Moloney, a UBC assistant surgery professor.
His price? A whopping $71,096 for 1978-79. His is the highest
salary ever paid at UBC.
But let's not forget poor old administration president Doug Kenny. He wags his tail close behind with $68,215. He's in the
$60-thousand-and-over kennel with all his vice-presidents and five
university professors.
But that's shovelfuls more than a dog's life.
Students should seriously question whether this expensive administration and high-salaried professors are giving us our money's
worth. What with tuition fee increases, educational cutbacks and
soaring inflation, why should these fat cats, er dogs, live in comfy
financial security?
There should be a law about leashes on this campus.
AMS blackmail
Blackmail is the newest bank game on campus.
The Bank of Montreal has the Alma Mater Society with its back
against the wall. The bank is crying because the AMS removed its
short term deposits last year because of the bank's investments in
South Africa and Chile. Now, the bank plans to put on the squeeze
and charge the AMS possibly more than $2,000 a year for services
it previously provided free.
Such poor sport, petty tactics are totally uncalled for. The bank
pays no attention to the moral reason — an oppressive junta and
apartheid nation — that caused the AMS to shift to a credit union.
Instead, their own pockets manipulate their profiteering actions.
The bank should take an inward look at its own moral priorities
before griping about lost revenue.
Unfortunately, the AMS does not emerge as a blameless knight-
in-shining-armor victim in this issue. Instead of waffling with a
weak half-way step in a moral decision, the society should have
ended all financial dealings with the Bank of Montreal. The AMS
too, gripes about the $12,000 inconvenience cost if a banking shift
were made.
But in putting money and convenience first before moral conscience, they're no different than the Bank of Montreal.
Birds of a feather, as they say.
Soviet dissident tells of brutality
Human rights
denied in USSR
For 12 days he was force-fed through a tube in his nose
— he had been on a hunger strike. The feeding tube was
thicker than his nostrils, but they kept pushing it up,
pushing it 'til the cartilage cracked, 'til blood gushed
forth, 'til the pain was unbearable. Even the guards who
had strait-jacketed him, and who held him down, could
not take it after 10 days, and tried to persuade the doctor
not to go through with it. But the doctor, a woman, was
afraid of the authorities. He lived for 12 days in a world
centred around the pain of his nostrils and pharynx.
He had gone on the hunger strike because the authorities had forged an accusation against him, had not read to
him the charges against him, and had refused to allow him
the defence lawyer he wanted.
He is Vladimir Bukovsky, the well-known Soviet dissident who was exchanged for the leader of the Chilean
Communist Party, Luis Corvalan Lepe on Dec. 18, 1976.
Implicit in this exchange was the admission, for the first
time, by Soviet authorities that there are political prisoners in the USSR. At the time of his release, Bukovsky was
A sane man in a

all sorts of drugs
serving a 12-year term in prison. He was then 33, and had
spent 11 of the previous 13 years in Soviet penal institutions — labor camps, prisons, and special psychiatric
There were about 2,000 men in the psychiatric hospital
in which Bukovsky was held. About 150 of these were perfectly sane (when they were arrested), and who were in re
ality political prisoners. Most of them had been diagnosed
as suffering from "creeping" schizophrenia, a non-existent disease which some Soviet psychiatrists invented to
enable the authorities to imprison dissidents on ostensibly
medical grounds. Almost any behavior could be said to be
a symptom of the disease. Paranoia was another common
diagnosis for the sane man. As Bukovsky tells us, "in a
socialist state that is supposed to be perfect, there can, by
definition, be no social condition that could create true
dissenters. Therefore, the dissenter is crazy, sick." A sane
man in a psychiatric hospital is pumped with all sorts of
drugs and punished with brutality.
Bukovsky will be talking about psychiatric abuse at
UBC from Oct. 1-15. He is an expert on the subject, not
only because he personally experienced confinement in a
psychiatric hospital, but also because he made a special
study of numerous Soviet cases, and wrote Manual on
Psychiatry for Dissidents. It was largely through the work
of Bukovsky that the West acknowledged and condemned
the fact of psychiatric abuse in the Soviet Union.
In his book To Build A Castle — My Life as a Dissident
Bukovsky tells of his expulsion from university for behavior that did not "correspond to the character of a Soviet student" — that is, for helping to organize poetry
readings in Mayakovsky Square in Moscow, for involve
ment with an orthodox literary group, for issuing a review
called The Phoenix, and for what authorities called
"western decadence."
He describes the early stages and growth of the dissident civil rights movement in the Soviet Union. The
Soviet constitution guarantees human and civil rights, but
these rights are denied in practice. Bukovsky's fight with
the authorities concentrated largely on constitutional and
legal issues. He tells also of life in the camps, of the lives
and attitudes of the people in the USSR, and in fact, contends that without labor camps, illegal businesses and the
black market the Soviet economy would collapse.
One of the most terrifying insights into Soviet society
Bukovsky gives in his excellent book is his statement that
the vast majority of Soviet citizens are perfectly aware of
the real repressive nature of the Soviet state, while behaving as if they believed every word of Soviet propaganda.

male students here. His attitude to
women as expressed in his letter
would appear to be that they aren't
really people, just playthings.
He labels "over-reactive" the sentiments expressed by Kate Andrew
and Sally Thorne in their excellent,
down-to-earth, non-hysterical article about sexual assault at UBC.
And he invites women to "Please
girls, don't get mad, get even."
Perhaps it is because Chris K.
fears women might take him up on
his desire to "see a few more in
stances of women attacking men on
campus" that he is afraid to reveal
his last name.
The only attacking women
should be doing of men who have
sexually assaulted them is with a .38
aimed straight at the balls.
If we who advocate fighting back
are going to get stuck with the label
"castrating bitches" we might as
well live up to the name.

Apocalypse Now seePF3 GRANVILLE ISLAND
In 1900 it was a mud-flat that
disappeared at high tide. Now it's
40 acres of prime land gradually
being shaped into Vancouver's
answer to Greenwich Village.
Who would have thought that a
lowly mud-flat had a future worth
$20 million of federal funds?
The Granville Island project
planners had to fight hard for the
realization of their Utopian dream.
They told fairy-tales of an idyllic
land where butcher, baker and
candle-stick maker would mingle
with actor, art student and intellectual; where children would
play creatively in adventure
playgrounds, and old folks would
stroll arm-in-arm by the scenic
tug-boats. "The Great Cultural
Exchange" beneath the bridge.
People laughed but someone
must have done something right,
because it's working.
Even though the "cultural exchanging" is serenaded by a
heavenly car-chorus from above,
and the ongoing construction
makes the head ache, Granville
Island is drawing throngs of people curious to see how it looks
after the four-year federal facelift.
A friendly Muffin Shop proprietor reports a customer-count
of over 900 on Sundays. "That's
more than one person per
minute!" he says. Business at the
many specialty stalls and food
outlets of the Public Market is
definitely thriving.
There is some concern that the
summer success will not continue
into the winter, but most owners
are optimistic. "People like the
casual atmosphere — it's
something Vancouver has needed
for a long time." But how are they
going to heat the monstrous cement barn when winter arrives?
What makes Granville Island
different from the suburban
Super-Valus or the Gastown
boutiques? Project Manager Allan
Hammond claims the difference is
the unique concept of weaving industrial, creative and domestic
elements into a balanced self-
supporting community. The idea
is the inverse of typical urban
planning. Rather than divide the
area into separate sections for
separate uses, the Norman Hot-
son Architects worked from the
premise of a communal "town
square," where everything happens in one place.
There is a personal feeling to
Granville Island that is reminiscent
of the old village square.
Strangers smile and share tables
in the eating space provided at the
Public Market. Competing shop
owners call each other by their
first names. The B.C. Hydro bus
driver who brings a bus around
the loop every 15 minutes introduced me to the head of the
janitorial staff.
And all the while, a little tot
happily munched on a stolen apple beneath a market display
table. Even with the dust and the
noise, the charm is working on
business-women, bank-
managers, funky types and senior
citizens alike. Apparently all folks
like feeling integrated.
Theatrically speaking, Granville
Island will have something for
everyone, providing the highbrow theatre patrons can adjust
to the idea of heading down near
the chain-forging factory for their
dose of culture.
The Arts Club, long outgrown
its Seymour Street cubbyhole,
will open a new 440-seat complex
on October 4 with a Sherlock
Holmes thriller, The Incredible
Murder of Cardinal Tosca.
ARTS CLUB . . . high-brow entertainment in the boonies
The new building is a strange,
angular counterpiece to the old industrial warehouses. But inside a
"thrust-stage" maintains a touch
of the old Arts Club intimacy. The
theatre isn't quite completed yet,
so remember to feel a little sympathy for the actors during these
opening months. While you sit in
relative comfort, they are changing costumes amid sawdust.
The other big theatre complex
is the Waterfront Theatre,
scheduled to open in a year. It will
provide a home for 3 Vancouver
companies: Westcoast Actors,
the New Play Centre (devoted to
emerging Canadian play-wrights)
and Carousel Children's Theatre.
The gaps between season performances will be filled with jazz concerts and dance festivals or
whatever else the public
demonstrates an interest in.
But if this busy little island
becomes the theatrical heart of the
city, where are the culture-starved
masses going to park their cars?
There is no bus service at night.
Project Manager Hammond
claims the parking facilities are
adequate for the present time.
Maybe they'll install parking
meters on the docks.  Row to a
GRANVILLE ISLAND . . . drop under the bridge, you'll be glad you did
curtis long photos
show, anyone?
The Vancouver School of Art
plans to join the cultural forces on
the Island next fall. Finally the
divided sections of the VSA will
unite under one 5 million dollar
roof. And the 450 full-time
students in every aspect of art,
from ceramics to media-
communications, will have some
much-needed elbow room.
Tom Hudson, VSA's Dean of
Instruction, says the public will
see much more of the school and
its activities than it has in the past.
The gallery and exhibition area will
be open to the public and there
will be a public corridor through
the centre of the Art School.
The philosophy of the school is
stretching towards a wider,
public-oriented image but it is unfortunate that the VSA was forced to succumb to the council
order dictating that the school be
named after Emily Carr. The talent
of the great Canadian painter is indisputable but it is inappropriate
to re-name the school after her.
Instead of demonstrating the
diversity of the school it narrows
its image. It seems Grace McCarthy was determined to find a mate
for the Captain Cook School of
There is one wrinkle yet to be
ironed out. The Public Market
wasn't intended as a student
cafeteria and not many starving
artists can afford to dine at
Mulvaney's every day.
The official Granville Island
philosophy is to worry about the
problems when they arise. The
flexibility of the plan is the key to
the great potential of Granville
Island. The old and new clash but
eventually mesh together in an
energetic blend of industry and
It's fresher than Gastown. It's
spontaneous and alive. It's
blatantly part of the city, in the
midst of the action, not buried like
the subterranean fashion malls.
It's rather ugly, but the "ugliness"
has been paradoxically turned into
a positive feature.
Go down and mingle. Go and
celebrate the Chinese Moon
Festival on September 30. Walk
by the water and watch the cars
go over the bridge. Listen to the
seagulls and look at the lights on
the boats at night. And loosen
your shirt.

Friday, September 28, 1979 APOCALYPSE NOW
"Apocalypse Now is intended as a
film opera," says Francis Coppola.
"Although it is set during the Vietnam war, it could have taken place
at any time, in any jungle where the
civilized encountered the primitive.
"I have attempted to make a the
atrical-film-myth dealing with the.
theme of moral ambiguity. The film
was made in a faraway location
with hundreds of film artists who
were all close collaborators. Indeed,
much of the journey of making the
film was the mirror image of the
story we were making — no one
was left unchanged."
Coppola set himself a goal: "tc
make a broad, spectacular film of
epic action-adventure scale that,
however, is also rich in theme and
philosophic inquiry into the mythology of war and the human condition."
Within these objectives
Coppola's production, neither politically-based nor documentary in
design, achieves a brooding and
ominous journey into darkness. It is
a philosophic, inquiry into the
human condition and the mystique
of war, shot on Philippine locations
that give the appearance of battle-
shattered Indochina.
Working in the Philippines some
10,000 miles from the United States
was a frightening but exciting aspect of this complicated, time-consuming, multi-million dollar project.
While assembling the multinational cast, including thousands of
extras, some of them Vietnamese
refugees, Coppola also was intimately involved with his technical
staff in scouting locations among
the far-flung, sometimes impenetrable jungle islands of the Philippines.
Using helicopters and light
planes, they searched the exotic
islands for terrain that looked like
that the U.S. forces had fought
through along the Mekong Delta, in
mountainous Cam Ranh, on An-
nam beaches and in the green hell
of the Cambodian jungles.
When it was finally over, Coppola
and his team had logged a lengthy
criss-crossing series of trips across
the breadth of the Philippines from
Olongapo on Subic Bay near Manila
to Baler in Quezon on the far Pacific
coast, then back to Iba on the
South Sea facing Mainland China,
and finally to the wilderness at Pag-
sanjan, long famed for its danger-
ous, rapid soaring canyons and uncharted, tangled jungles.
Locating appropriate sites was
merely the beginning of this cinematic journey. In order to achieve
as authentically as possible the look
on film of Vietnam of 1969 — a canvas on which both war and human
conflict were to be dramatically
played out — Vietnamese villages,
U.S. military installations and an
Angkor Wat-style temple hacked
out in the jungle were among the
major sets that were constructed.
In Baler, a coconut plantation became a Vietnamese village with 70
huts and a 250-foot pier leading into
the sea. It was to be the target of
destruction in attacks by gunship,
rocket helicopters, A-5 jets and napalm in the depiction of the first
helicopter war ever staged on film.
Capturing this battle sequence
required the expertise of 450 technicians, actors and extras, a helicopter squadron, a small armada of
naval craft and more than 100 assorted vehicles. This motley movie
army "invaded" the peaceful-looking fishing town with its single attraction of a surf-filled beach — a
condition integral to the battle —
by sea, by air and by heavy trucks
the Vietnam war through the eyes of the victors?
laboriously driven over the Sierra
Madre mountains.
The proper placing of hundreds
of people, the precise detonation of
explosions, the setting of ensuing
fires and the mounting of the helicopter attacks at exact camera
angles at the right moment demanded perfect timing. While more
than just one take was required, the
results of this series of thunderous
attacks was awesome. The shock
of gunfire was followed by flames,
and smoke filled the sky until the
sun was blotted out.
A second location at Iba, set on
desolate coastal sands, was transformed into the site of an American
military installation. Complete with
all the accoutrements of an army
staging area, this set was complete
with soldiers' barracks, supply
depots, armament dumps and even
an amphitheatre (which was destroyed and later rebuilt at Pagsan-
But disaster struck. After two
months of filming, Typhoon Didang
(Olga) burst on May 16, 1976 with
enough force to halt production on
Apocalypse Now. The 40 inches of
rain that deluged the islands over a
period of six days destroyed many
of the film's standing sets, especi
ally in Luzon. A two-month hiatus
was called during which much of
the cast and crew returned to the
rest and relaxation of their Stateside homes while some of the technical crews remained to reconstruct
the demolished sets. The company
then was reassembled, cameras
rolled and filming.continued for the
ensuing 10 months.
A third location found Coppola's
"army" at Pagsanjan, a village two
hours out of Manila in Luzon's
mountainous jungles. It was here
that the Angkor Wat-style temple
ruin was built as the setting for the
final dramatic sequences of Apocalypse Now.
The U.S. Department of Defense
declined to cooperate in what it presumably still considered to be a sensitive situation, but Coppola's team
was assisted by the government of
Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos, supplying necessary military
hardware and machinery and helping to simplify the complications of
these particularly exotic areas.
Complications such as erratic telephone communications between locations and the outside world, frequent power failures, equipment
breakdowns   added   to   the   great
strain on personnel working in overpowering heat, high humidity and
at primitive locations.
An example of "making do" was
the acquisition of 15 helicopters
needed for a sequence showing an
American attack on a Viet Cong-
controlled South Vietnamese
village. Unfortunately, there were
only 24 operational choppers in all
of the Philippines, and many of
them were being used in actual missions in the revolutionary guerilla
war being waged in southern Mindanao. When the helicopters were
freed for the film between their real
engagements, it was necessary to
paint them with U.S. markings in
the morning and repaint them with
Philippine Air Force insignia at
Another victory for American ingenuity was scored by the discovery of two essential PBRs (Patroi
Boats, River), the naval transport
needed for the upriver journey of
Capt. Willard (Martin Sheen).
Willard is the film's tough, young,
cynical army captain, ordered to
seek out and "terminate if necessary" the command of Col. Kurtz
(Marlon Brando), a brilliant career
man. Kurtz has forsaken the army,
the war that has disillusioned him
and his family to retreat into a Cambodian jungle enclave as the leader
of a fighting unit of renegade soldiers and painted, worshipful,
native Montagnard tribesmen.
The boats used for this journey
turned up only after an extensive
search unearthed several confiscated Vietnamese craft in Thailand.
They seemed to be in perfect shape
except that they lacked engines,
and the motors ordered from the
U.S. proved to be unadaptable on
arrival. But ingenuity made the
PBRs and their engines functional
for the perilous upriver trip.
Casting of many hundreds of bit
and extra roles was done in Manila,
with parts assigned to Filipino, Vietnamese and American non-professionals. Among the more frustrating tests the casting unit made was

When they had gotten to know
one another, it had been dark. Then
she had invited him over and so he
had come. She had shown him her
flat and the tablecloths and the bedding and also the plates and forks
that she had. But when they sat
Who? she asked, Pi - ca — ?
Well, then not, he sighed and
suddenly without a transition said:
You have probably had an accident
at one time?
How is that? she asked.
Yes, well, he said helpless.
he  said,   because  of
across from one another in broad
daylight for the first time, he saw
her nose.
The nose looks as if it were sewn
on, he thought. And it doesn't look
at all like other noses. More like a
piece of fruit. For heaven's sake! he
thought, and those nostrils! They
are arranged perfectly unsym-
metrically. The one is narrow and
oval. But the other yawns almost
like a chasm. Dark and round and
unfathomable. He reached for his
handkerchief and dabbed his forehead.
It is so warm, yes? she began.
Oh yes, he said and looked at her
nose. It must be sewn on, he
thought again. It seems so misplaced in the face. And it has a
completely different tone than the
rest of the skin. Much more intensive. And the nostrils are really without harmony. Or after a completely
new type of harmony, it occurred to
him, as with Picasso.
Yes, he began again, don't you
also think that Picasso is on the
right path?
Translated from German by Monika
Oh, because of my nose?
Yes, because of it.
No, it was like that right away.
She said this with complete patience: it was like that right away.
My word! he had almost said.
But he only said: oh, really?
And nevertheless I am a pronouncedly harmonious person, she
whispered. And how I just love
symmetry! Look at my two geraniums by the window. To the left
stands one and to the right the
other. Completely symmetrical. No,
believe me, inwardly I am completely different. Completely different.
With this she laid her hand on his
knee, and he felt her horrible intimate eyes burning as far as the
back of his skull.
I am thoroughly meant for marriage though, for living together
with someone, she said quietly and
somewhat bashfully.
Because of symmetry? escaped
Harmony, she corrected him
kindly, because of harmony.

He stood up.
Oh, you are leaving?
Yes, I — yes.
She brought him to the door.
Inwardly I am really very much
different though, she began once
Ah yes, he thought, your nose is
an exaction. A sewn-on exaction.
And he said aloud: Inwardly you are
like the geraniums, you mean to
say. Wholly symmetrical, yes?
Then he went down the stairs,
without looking back.
She stood by the window and
looked after him.
Then she saw how he stood standing below and dabbed his forehead with the handkerchief. But
she did not see that he was grinning
with relief at that. That she did not
see because her eyes were filled
with water. And the geraniums,
they were also sad. At any rate,
they smelled that way.

Juno and the Paycock
By Sean O'Casey
At Studio 58
Until Oct. 20
The two problems are related in
that Studio 58 has chosen to open
its fall season with Sean O'Casey's
Juno and the Paycock.
Juno and the Paycock was
written and set during the Irish civil
was of the early twenties. It deals,
at least ostensibly, with the tragic
destruction of a poor working class
family in Dublin.
But there is a curious feeling of
having seen the Boyles before. The
father is an indolent drunkard, the
son a maimed veteran of the civil
war, the daughter a pretty but naive
husband-hunter, and the mother
Juno is both leader and provider for
the family.
The problem is that the Boyles
are not a family, but a misrocosm of
the Irish nation. Their faults represent the faults of the Irish culture;
their tragedy is the tragedy of the
Irish people.
If these parallels were presented
in the context of a human situation,
Juno and the Paycock would be
a great play. But the characters are
sacrificed to make statements
about the Irish condition that now
seem mere truisms. They seldom
rise above what they represent to
become human.
When the Englishman Bentham
swindles the family out of their promised inheritance and impregnates
the daughter Mary (surely a classic
example of English oppression), only Juno is allowed a human reaction. Father and son can muster
neither rage for Bentham's deceit
nor compassion for Mary's situation. Both are confined to the
scope of what they represent. The
father rushes off to drink away
what little money they have left and
the son whines about the shame
brought upon him.
As the Boyles' tragedy deepens,
an acute awareness of the forces
that have caused the horrendous
situation in Ireland appears but it is
difficult to feel any empathy for the
characters on the stage.
The problem is familiarity with
the problem in Ireland. O'Casey is
offering no new insights into the
problem, and neither is he showing
how people caught in such tragedy
might be affected. The play leaves
us reminded, but unmoved.
It is unfortunate that Studio 58
has chosen Juno and the
Paycock to open the fall season.
They have wasted a thoughtful and
professional production on an
uninteresting play.
Under the direction of Anthony
Holland the actors give consistant
and sometimes inspired performances. Particularly notable are
the performances of Gabrielle
Jones as Juno and Robert Metcalfe
as Joxer Daly. In Juno's final soliloquy, Jones manages to juxtapose
tragedy and triumph with startling
The integration of set design,
lighting, and costuming is equally
superb. From beginning to end we
are inside a broken down tenement
house in Dublin. No detail is omitted.
If you want to see an excellent
production, see Juno and the
Paycock. If you want to be
enlightened, forget it.

A bird in the ballet

SWAN LAKE . . . classic story of boy-meets-bird retold
Friday, September 28, 1979
The National Ballet of Canada's
Swan Lake that opened Tuesday
night is a variation of the classic
boy-meets-bird story.
The boy is a handsome young
prince and the bird is a wonderful
white swan doubling as a beautiful
maiden from dusk to dawn. If the
problem of presenting a swan as his
fiance to his domineering mother
isn't enough, the poor prince must
also contend with a nasty old witch
(The Black Queen).
In a masterful piece of deception
the latter suceeds in having the
hapless Prince seduced by a vampire with plumage (The Black
Swan) who the Prince, blinded by
lust, believes to be his Swan
The Prince realizes to his horror
that he has doomed his love by this
betrayal and rushes to beg her
forgiveness. The Swan Queen, being pure of heart, forgives him but
the die has been cast and he must
leave her or die. He elects to remain
with her and her feathered compa
nions drive the wretched hero off a
cliff to his death.
Silly you say! Perhaps. Yet in the
skillful hands (and feet) of the National Ballet it sends chills up the
spine and puts a lump in the throat.
Beneath this admittedly implausible plot lie the elements of great
drama: good versus evil;
materialism versus the spiritual
ideal; romantic versus profane love;
and the betrayal of principle leading
to destruction. Swan Lake contains
all of these themes and presents
them with a sensual opulence only
possible in that marvelous combination of theatre, dance and music
that is ballet.
The production is a sumptuous
feast. Desmon Heeley's sets and
costumes alone are almost worth
the price of admission. Tchaikovsky's music is romantic with a
haunting quality that lingers hours
after the orchestra stops.
Vanessa Harwood was superb in
the    dual    role    of    the    Swan
Queen/Black Swan. The role is a
great challenge in that it requires
not only masterful technique but
also a versatile actress capable of
interpreting the opposite roles of
the sweet and demure Swan Queen
anr1 the brash seductive Black
The technically difficult role of
the Black Swan involves some head
spinning maneouvres which were
executed with smooth precision
and confidence. At first encounter
the White Swan didn't draw a
tremendous amount of sympathy
but her poignant response to her
betrayal was felt throughout the
Tomas Schramel gave a fine performance as the Prince though
there were moments in which he
seemed a trifle shaky. Several variations by members of the company
were very pleasing. There was a
lively czardas (by permission of the
Bolshoi) for those who like Russian
folk and a spunky Spanish variation

Page Friday 5 Sneezy does make
the people cry
Sneezy Waters is the kind of guy
you might expect to find in a bar in
Strathmore, Alberta or somewhere
else sufficiently removed from the
world of urban cool.
Rather than make cowboys cry in
their beer, Waters and his Excellent
Band play music that can only be
loosely termed "country". So they
come to Vancouver and make city
slickers cry in their beer.
Not that Waters is overly fond of
melancholy odes to pain and sorrow. He wants people to dance and
get off their asses. And Friday night
at the Commodore they danced to
everything from Jimmy Cliff to
Hank Williams.
Central to the Excellent Band's
sound is that ultimate country-
western instrument, the pedal steel
guitar. Long abused and relegated
to cliche status, in the hands of the
Excellent Band the steel guitar
becomes the perfect accompaniment to any popular tune.
Another concession to popular
taste reflected in the band's line-up
is a wailing, jazz-tinged sax that
gives Waters' sound some of the
funk usually lacking in country
Waters himself plays a subtle and
rhythmic guitar that blends in well
with his adaptable vocal style. He
seems able to cover almost any
material and put his own stamp on
To describe his music as "country" is unfair and a disservice. While
he is best known for his renditions
of Hank Williams tunes, Waters'
musical base obviously extends
much farther.
The strength of his music was
shown Friday by the diversity of the
audience. There were caterpillar
drivers from Surrey, Kitsilano
cowboys, and people who just like
to party.
Perhaps you could call his music
simply "North American". It
reflects the diversity of this continent and its people.
you can take Sneezy out of the country, but
Nicaraguans reap benefits from punk
The concert was billed as a
benefit for the war-torn nation of
Nicaragua. The main benefit that
country enjoyed was being
thousands of miles away from one
of the most pretentious musical offerings to hit Vancouver's
punk/new wave audience.
Saturday night's main course
was The Pointed Sticks. The group
is inevitably billed as Vancouver's
best new wave band. They blend
sophisticated stage presence, articulate vocals, and tight ensemble
playing into an energetic and stimulating musical experience.
Any band that wants to go places
must develop a slick presentation
delivered with apparently effortless
ease. The Pointed Sticks are going
places if you believe the latest rumor of a hefty cash advance on a
contract signed with Stiff Records
(the people who got Elvis Costello
on the charts). But on their way to
the top the boys seem to be developing style at the expense of
The first number of the set warmed the band up to its high-rev gear
while lead singer Nick Jones expounded on the perennial problems
of teenage angst:
"/ wish I had some cash.
Then I would go get smashed."
It wasn't until the quintet launched into the familiar favorite The
Real Thing that the place really
started to rock. A natural for top 40
radio, with proper exposure the
song could go places on the North
American charts. The Marching
Song followed on its heels and had
the audience marching in that curious up and down dancing pattern
that most notably sets off the
punkers from the horizontal style
favored by the disco crowd.
As songs came and went, the

SUBterranean homesick Blues
"It's not blues and it's not new wave; I've
called it blue wave."
These are the words of Tom Lavin, guitarist
and leader of the Powder Blues Band. Powder
Blues appeared in SUB auditorium Wednesday and thoroughly impressed almost 200 people. Not surprisingly, though.
A look beneath the surface of Powder Blues
may startle those who consider them just
another local band. The band's personnel includes Dave Woodward, formerly of Down-
child, on tenor saxophone and Duris Maxwell
of Jerry doucette's band on drums. Local
buffs will recognize Gordie Bertram from the
Foreman-Byrnes band, joining Tom and Jack
Lavin on guitar and bass respectively and
Wayne Kozak on saxophone and Willie Mc-
Alder on piano.
There were the usual technical problems —
this time the drums didn't arrive on time. The
band opened without them, with a piano and
bass instrumental. Other members of the band
appeared as the third and fourth numbers rolled along, and the drums finally appeared during the fourth number.
The band was loose and confident on stage.
Great solo efforts came through on Since My
Baby Left Town and Hear That Guitar Ring.
Probably the most notable song of the set was
their cover version of Caldonia. Powder Blues
can play their blues as varied and as well as
Downchild or Led Zeppelin.
local "blue wave'
sional sophistication into showcase
Those who saw the recent Sticks
gig at the Commodore can appreciate the fact that the band is flirting
with a media image high in energy
but lacking in emotional contact
with the audience. Last Saturday
night in Legion Hall No. 179, under
the benign smiles of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, The Pointed
Sticks delivered a highly polished,
reconstructed Mersey beat. Let's
hope they remember that beyond
the bright lights of the video porta-
packs there is a flesh and blood audience that got them where they
are today.
The Modernettes opened the
show, and many fans hailed their
presentation as the highlight of the
evening. Their music showed more
musical ability than the Dishrags,
who played behind them.
The all-woman Dishrag trio gave
a remarkable demonstration of explosive musical energy totally lacking in discipline, rhythmic variety,
or coherence. The lyrics bore little
resemblance to English and were
delivered with such abandon as to
be a totally useless appendage to
the music.
The audience was visibly bored.
The Dishrags have energy but until
they temper it with changes of pace
and wit it will amount to little more
than noise.
Anyone who motored to the Cars
concert instead will have another
chance to catch The Pointed Sticks
in the SUB ballroom Oct. 5.

Friday, September 28, 1979 Brubeck talks
Struggling jazz musicians take
note. Dave Brubeck was once as
down and out as you are.
An established musician even
before his four year stint in the army
during World War II, Brubeck
found himself both out of -uniform
and out of work in 1946.
"It was frustrating, says
Brubeck.  "The big band era 'was
£xcttt4we uttewiecv
over and suddenly there were no
dance halls anymore. Jazz as I
knew it was in decline and most of
us were struggling."
But the composer of such
classics as "Take Five" and "Uns-
quare Dance" didn't struggle for
long. The rebirth of jazz in the early
1950's put Brubeck's career back
on its feet. During this period he
played with many of the prominent
names in jazz and had many brilliant
sidemen, including Vancouver's
own Wyatt Ruther.
By the time younger audiences
began turning away from jazz in the
mid-sixties Brubeck had become a
giant, an established and untouchable talent who remained
relatively unaffected by the changing reputation of jazz.
"The really big performers didn't
feel it", he says. "The greats like
Oscar (Peterson) and Ella have
always had a more or less continuous following."
Did Brubeck suffer?
"I didn't, but my sons did. It was
hardest on the young guys who
didn't have any kind of reputation."
Brubeck sees the present prosperity of the jazz scene as a permanent situation rather than a temporary phenomenon. "It's been
building for a long time. It started in
the early fifties when stage bands
reappeared in a big way all over the
When Brubeck went to school in
the late 1940s jazz was little more
than a four letter word in most
university music faculties. "Now
you have places like North Texas
State with sixteen full stage bands.
The level of musicianship in some
of those stage bands is
phenomenal, according to
Brubeck. "Kids are coming into colleges now with solid jazz experience
from high school and even earlier.
Interest is high."
Brubeck feels this new approach
to musicianship is reflected in the
work of younger jazz-rock fusion
artists like Herbie Hancock and
Chick Corea. "Herbie's great. They
both have tremendous facility and,
more importantly, their own
heritage to draw on."
Brubeck always includes plenty
of young blood in his own group,
including his own son Chris on bass
and trombone this time round.
Brubeck shies away from giving
career advice to young musicians.
"It's always a difficult choice to
play music at the expense of other
things in your life. Some of the best
musicians just can't do it. I know
some guys, great musicians, but
you can't count on them to get to a
rehearsal on time in their own
town, let alone on the road." The
commitment to play or not to play
can   only come   from   within,   he
Attitude, not talent, is to Brubeck
the? most important aspect of a
musician's character. He meets
musicians in virtually every major city who are "as good or almost as
good as the professionals in L.A. I
once jammed with some musicians
in Salt Lake City who were just
great and I told them they were
good enough to go to L.A. And
they aid, and they made it. But I've
seen other guys just as talented
who can't handle the lifestyle."
Brubeck's own lifestyle even at
middle age remains fast and
relentless. "I come home at
Thanksgiving and Christmas. I
spend two days out of three playing. The third day is spent on the
road." He allows himself the luxury
of playing warm countries during
the winter months.
How does he relax? His answer is
typical of jazz musicians
everywhere. "Music is my escape.
It almost rejuvenates you
sometimes. On my last tour we had
some all-nighters, which are harder
on me now than when I was young.
Some nights I'd go onstage feeling
tired. But you know, it's almost like
magic. I love performing."
He also keeps himself occupied
while travelling by composing.
Brubeck's life on the road does
not, happily, exclude his family. His
sons have always been an important and natural part of his music-
making. At home the atmosphere is
the same. "Sometimes when my
18-year-old comes home from
school we'll sit and jam, do two
piano stuff," he says.
Perhaps this unique amalgamation of family and career partly ex-
master jazz artist advises young musicians
plains Brubeck's musical longevity,
his ability to maintain the kind of
schedule that regularly ruins the
lives and health of other musicians.
Health is an important part of
Brubeck's philosophy of survival. "I
guess that's my main piece of advice. Just live as healthy a life as
possible, both at home and on the
road. Take care of your body."
Brubeck's newest project is a collaboration with two old friends,
Richie Davis and Joe Lewis. The
new album is called La Fiesta da la
Posada and marks Columbia's first
major entry into the digital record
The digital method is a new and
distortion-free technique of studio
recording currently revolutionizing
the industry. He tells Vancouver
jazz fans as well to watch for re-
releases of his work with various
people in the early fifties, including
Wyatt Ruther.
Dave Brubeck promises a little
old, a little new for his upcoming
Vancouver concert. The current
band line-up includes the well-
respected Butch Miles as well as
Jerry Bergonzi on soprano and
tenor saxes. The concert will be at
the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on
Oct. 5.
Cars stall engines at live Coliseum concert
How can you reconcile unforgettable music with a forgettable performance?
You can't.
The most sparkling aspect of The
Cars concert in the Coliseum Sept.
22, was the costumes and jewelry
worn by the band members.
Resplendent in diamond and gold
earrings, neck chains, rings, and
disco-glo threads,   the boys from
CARS . . . worth a few minutes on AM or FM
Boston shone under the spotlight.
The band's costumes and instruments showcased a flashy, yet
co-ordinated red, white and black
color motif. They've even
developed a Beatlesque stage symmetry with Elliot Easton's left-
handed guitar against Ric Ocasek's
What they haven't developed is
an onstage persona. Their poise
was rigid and unemotional to the
point of nonexistent. On many of
the songs they seemed on the verge
of letting loose, but then at the last
instant they opted for a visual static
But the music hypnotically
pounded against the consciousness. Impressions of Velvet
Underground, Bowie, Roxy Music
and early rockabilly were sprinkled
throughout Ric Ocasek's carefully
concocted pop perfections. The
songs confidently balanced artistic
creativity with equal amounts of
commercial clout.
Ocasek's repertoire, fluid and
unstuffy, was played fast and
furious by a band of technically experienced musicians. They didn't
even break the accelerated pace to
introduce the band members.
Individually, the band members'
musicianship sporadically shone.
Elliot Easton, on lead guitar
couldn't resist frenetically forcing
the sound out on You're All I've Got
Tonight and Candy - 0. With the
latter song, bassist Ben Orr's strong
tenor showed that he's simply one
of the most talented voices in
popular music today.
David Robinson's percussion arrangements on Double Life and
Let's Go constructed some of the
strongest thumping and deliberate
drumming you are likely to hear
among contemporaries. On
keyboards, Greg Hawkes filtered in
and out of songs, a synthesizer riff
here, an energetic echo there.
Ric Ocasek's harsh and eerie
Bowie-esque vocals on Nightspots
were sinisterly spotted by his uncanny rhythmic intrusions on
rhythm guitar.
The energy and spirit of The
Cars' performance cannot match
that of their songs. It's this extreme
contrast that forces a more critical
appraisal of their stage show, or
lack of one.

From PF 3
the search centred on "types" to
play the Montagnards, the Vietnamese mountain tribesmen famed
for their ferocious, wartime exploits. Finally 250 Ifuago, a primitive
tribe living deep in a northern province, were recruited to portray the
natives allied with Col. Kurtz.
Apocalypse Now is the sardonic
motto of Brando's G.I. and Mon-
tagnard unit that is scrawled as
grafitti on the riverside cliff of his
jungle camp and brings into sharp
definition the character of often laconic but sorely tried men who took
part in that war. As general in command the bearded Coppola, who
lost some 60 pounds while slogging
through the humid jungles and
even flew a helicopter in overseeing
production, says that Apocalypse
Now has twice the scope of any
film that I've done, including the
two Godfather films together."
"It was a tough project, taking on
a tough subject," he says. "Vietnam is a microcosm of war in
modern times and the themes that
were evident — the use of men, the
use of dope, the technology of napalm, the struggle, the politics of
the struggle — all come together to
put an audience through an experience, frightening but violent only
in proportion with the idea being
put across — that will hopefully
change them in some small way."

Friday, September 28, 1979 Multiple poisonings reap little effect
This is a beautifully shot film but
the plot, based on a "true life"
crime, tends to become too complex.
Violette Noziere
Starring Isabelle Huppert
Directed by Claude Chabol
At the Varsity Theatre
The film opens with a scene in a
pre-Second World War Parisian
bar. Violette Noziere in black furs
and flaming red hair is obviously
bored by talk of Mussolini and the
The feline grace of Isabelle Huppert is superb. When one of the
young fervents tries timidly to stalk
her she turns around and attacks,
"So do you want to make love with
me?" His male ego is caught on the
raw so he calls her a whore. She
simply leaves, throwing coins on
his table as she goes.
Violette's two lives become apparent when she returns home. It is
not to a luxurious mansion that she
returns but to a two-room flat she
shares with her working class
parents. All traces of the
mysterious woman are removed
and she becomes once more the
good virginal girl that papa adores.
The seemingly happy household
is also divided. Violette is the product  of  Madame  Noziere's affair
with a rich gentleman, leading
Maman to want her daughter to
marry well and escape the lower

and flaming red
Violette juggles her opposing
lives with skill until she finds she
has gonorrhea.  This threatens to
Undead haunt shopping centre
Dawn of the Dead is certainly not
for the squeamish. For well over
two hours the audience is captivated by the death and destruction concocted by writer-director
George Romero. And what a concoction. The result is a film both
fascinating and repelling at the
same time.
Dawn of the Dead
Directed by George Romero
Showing at the Coronet
Dawn of the Dead is being touted
as the sequel to Romero's 1968
Night of the Living Dead. Those
who have not seen Romero's earlier
effort may find Dawn of the Dead
to be initially confusing.
There are a lot of questions about
the origin of the Undead that the
film never attempts to resolve. The
only explanation given is an
ominous "When there is no more
room in Hell, the Dead shall walk
the Earth!"
There is no real plot to Dawn of
the Dead. Basica'ly, the film's four
leading charades search for a
sanctuary to escape the eventual
takeover of earth by the Undead.
On their way (to Canada?), they
stop at a shopping centre to
replenish fuel and supplies. The
catch is that centre is infested with
an army of the Undead who have a
fetish for human flesh. And the on-

ly way to permanently stop the
Undead is to blow their brains out.
A major factor that makes Dawn
of the Dead so enjoyable is that the
film refuses to take itself seriously.
All it aims to be is an entertaining
horror spectacle and that's exactly
what it is — a spectacle. Some
scenes are ghoulish to the point of
being repulsive but overall the film
is a winner.
The most controversial aspect of
Dawn of the Dead is its debatable
parody of consumerism. Romero
has a heyday depicting the lost
souls in the shopping centre to be
typical consumers — programmed
individuals, not unlike dummies in
the displays.
Dawn of the Dead has flaws. The
editing is sloppy at times, the
writing is hardly up to par, and the
performances are passable at best.
But the film is not a flop. It is a
shocking film that will numb your
senses and leave you dazed after it
has ended. Like this summer's big
hit Alien, Dawn of the Dead is
suspenseful. Romero's fast-paced
direction is the key element that
holds the film together. Another
director would have turned it into a
sloppy mess.
After a debacle of horror films
such as Prophecy and The Brood,
Dawn of the Dead is a welcome
relief. Dawn of the Dead should not
be missed.

disrupt the balance comp etely but
also offers her a means of excape.
Monsieur and Madame Noziere are
conveniently told that she is a virgin
and that the disease is hereditary.
Her parents must be cured, but
Violette has decided they should
also be killed. So she calmly takes
her medicine and watches her
parents swallow the poison she has
prepared. But they only suffer a
mild case of "food poisoning."
Death having failed, love enters
Violette's life. She falls head over
black heels with a prospective
lawyer who is looking for a rich lay.
In her passion, Violette steals from
her poor parents, prostitutes herself
and contacts her rich natural father
to supply the lawyer with cash.
Her lover soon becomes
discontented with mere hundreds
and wants Violette to prove her love
with thousands. The only way she
can think of getting the money is to
again try to murder her parents.
She uses the trick of the poisoned medicine once more but her
parents are a little skeptical after
their last bout of poisoning. In a
convincing and even touching manner, Violette looks straight into her
dear papa's eyes and swears that it
is safe. Minutes later, he is writhing
on the floor, soon followed by the
Violette is arrested but tries to
escape the murder charge of her
father by concocting a tale of a
"crime of passion." She claims that
she was raped repeatedly from an
early age by her lustful old dad. Her
mother lives on to vindicate her late
In all crimes, and escpecially in
"whodunnits", there must be an
element of surprise. In Violette
Noziere it is no great secret who actually committed the crime; nor is
Violette's end surprising — she is
sentenced to walk barefoot in a
black shroud to the center of Paris
to be beheaded.
Although there is a twist to the
end of her story, what is intriguing
in this film is the why? The simple
monetary motive is only a fraction
of this question.
It is toward this pivotal point that
Claude Chabol directs the film.
Along the way he does a very good
job. Images that contrast and complement are subtly placed side by
side. He gathers together the great
issues of politics, human relationships, class questions and justice.
Within this structure Isabelle
Huppert is stunning in her portrayal
of the sophisticate, the whore, the
innocent and the jailbird with equal
Violette Noziere has all the requirements and elements of a very
good film. If at times these
elements become complex, it is a
momentary flaw. The whole effect
of the film soon erases this defect
and one is left intrigued rather than

The EPl 100 has become the industry standard for bookshelf loudspeakers. Leading consumer and
audiophile publications have consistently given the EPl 100 their top ratings. It does everything you
want a loudspeaker to do, and it does it all in a compact cabinet!
The EPl 100 offers EPI's celebrated Linear Sound: a pure, uncoloured, natural sound from top to
bottom. With no artificial boosting of the bass to impress the innocent. And all the nuances at the
treble end that, on most speakers, just fade away.
The Model 100 doesn't just deliver the Linear Sound of EPl straight ahead, either. In fact, up to
15,000 Hz, the speaker's off-axis dispersion is down an average of only 3dt.
And, unlike nearly every other speaker, you can listen for hours to the EPl 100 without suffering
listening fatigue. The reason is EPI's "minimum distortion" — both harmonic and intermodulation.
With its excellent dispersion and EPI's Linear Sound, we'd say the EPl 100 is clearly the finest
speaker you can get for the money.
