Little Big Man": Movie Review
By RICHARD NEWMAN
Little Big Man Is a film
that many people have been
anxiously awaiting, mainly be
cause of the presence of one
man-Mr, Dustin Hoffman, Hoff
man received much accalim for
his role in “THE GRADUATE”,
Mr. Hcrffman offers another
sterling performance in "Lit
tle Big Man”, In fact, his
portrayal of Jack Crabb Is the
highlight of the film.
Jack Crabb Is a 120 year old
man who happens to be the only
living survivor of Custer’s Last
Stand, The film begins with
Crabb as a child. As a lad of
seven, he Is captured by the
Cheyenne Indians, Jack Is
adored by the Chief of the tribe.
Old Lodge Skins (who happens
to be played by a real Indian,
Chief Dan George), The scenes
that take place in the Indian
camp are so realistic that one
wonders how much time was put
Into this movie.
The next phase of the movie
Is the weakest in the film. The
25-year-old Crabb Is subject
ed to all sorts of people, in
cluding a “hanky-panky” mini
ster’s wife, and young boy who
thrills at Crabb’s gun-twirling
exhibit. Crabb’s gun-twirling
escapades account for many hil
arious incidents. This phase
of the film, which takes the
white man’s side is well play
ed but lacks much of the life
and warm-heartedness of the
Indian sequences.
The climax of the film is the
Battle of the Little Big Horn,
The scene is staged well and
features Custer and a cast of
thousands. The battle scene
comes at a very good time, be
cause things had become ra
ther boring during the prece
ding scene. And of course,
the white men are defeated and
Jack Crabb survives.
“Little Big Man” is a film
that everyone should see, not
only for the acting, but for
its content of pure American
history.
Some like it soul and some
like it rock.
The RMSH 1971 Junior-Se
nior Is coming May 7. Many
students have been wanting to
know what kind of band there is
going to be, what kind of music
they play, et cetera,
“Company” Is the name of the
nine-member group. Their
manager, Mr, Richard H. Wil
son, said, “ 'Company’ plays a
variety of music, specializing
In progressive rock. They
also play soul and some psy
chedelic, They like the music
of 'Chicago’, ‘Blood, Sweat, and
Tears’, ‘Santana’, and ‘Sly and
the Family Stone,’ but they en
joy playing the music of other
popular groups.”
Also, brass is often used in-
the group’s songs and they pro
vide their own light show. The
types of lights used are color
ed, black, and strobe.
According to Mr, Wilson,
