’’Killers Three”, released by
Dick Clark productions, was producea
by Dick Clark, and also stars Dick
Clark. This movie, of the Bonnie
and Clyde type, concerns'the
involvement of a trio in
moonshining in tne mounrains of
North Carolina. A poor setting,
unlike anything in North Carolina,
inept directing, and lousy acting
make this movie anything but a
desirable one.
”If He Hollers Let Him Go"I
Raymond St. Jacques, one of
Hollywood’s better character actors,
supplies enough talent to make this
one of the year’s better productions.
With its location in Southern
Georgia, this film shows something
of the bigotry, fear,and hatred in
Mr. Wallace’s south. The star
fights and wins his freedom against
these oppressive odds. All but the
staunchest of racists will
sympathise with his struggle.

On occasion. Rod McKuen’s name is
mentioned in casual conversation. One
quickly associates his name with the
recent release, "The Sea," an album
which takes its place along with
earlier recordings of his poetry. In
his newest album, "The Search of Eros,"
Mr. McKuen combines his writing and
speaking talents with his musical
ability. This results in a pensive
mood of"londlihess and love in the
age of Eroticism."
In the charming music, there is a
familiar underlying theme reminiscent
of "The Sea." There is a question in
one’s mind as to which came first,
Anita Kerr or Rod McKuen. The absence
of music is used extremely well by Mr.
McKuen. In some places, silence
becomes part of the music.
The two words "love", and "sex",
interchange throughout the album. The
emphasis is placed mostly on the
physical attraction between a man and
a woman. The mind falls back from the
limelight and gives way to casual
desires.
The music is simple and interesting,
the words meaningful, deep in emotion,
and blunt. Rod McKuen has produced
another album with which one can relate.
"I have to walk at night and be
with many. . . and give myself to many
strangers. . . I don’t know why. . .
I only know that people smile sometimes"
