New Releases

All These Women (Lido): Generally regarded as a private joke. Ingmar Bergman's first colour film allows photographer Sven Nykvist to experiment, and as usual does a remarkable job with splendid sensual effect.

Assault On A Queen (St. James): Straight-forward adventure about a hold-up of the Queen Mary by an assorted crew in a renovated submarine.

Duel At Diablo (Regent): A western directed by Ralph Nelson. best known for his "Requiem For A Heavyweight" and "Lilies Of The Field."

Trunk To Cairo (Paramount): Based on the recent Egyptian spy scandal.

Walk Don't Run (Majestic): Routine comedy set in Tokyo during the Olympic Games.

Currently Screening

Georgy Girl (Embassy): Fast-moving attractive film about the new morality although the sentimental ending attempts to have it both ways.

One Million Years Bc (Plaza): An incredible amount of work has gone into the making of prehistoric animals, if nothing else, and the result is what could be the most curious comedy ever made.

Greatest Story Ever Told (Cinerama): The least said about this effort the better. The only relief is in spotting your favourite Hollywood stars.

Doctor Zhivago (Kings): An epic in the grand style which despite some blunders is made tolerable by Rod Steiger's performance.

Torn Curtain (Princess): Alfred Hitchcock's inflated reputation can only be further injured by this banal film.
