When one sees a heading on a book
proclaiming that it is "The Great
Bestseller," it is only natural to
want to take a closer look at the book.
Usually a disappointment follows, but
occasionally you may be fortunate
enough to encounter a book that is
surprising in its scope.
A nonfiction book that has captivated
almost a million readers with its uncanny
understanding of the human animal is
Games People Play by Dr. Eric Berne.
The games that Dr. Berne writes of are
not the simple, mindless variety that
are meant to entertain, but the
complicated, serious games that we
play with one another throughout our
Dr. Berne feels that most people
are constantly playing games with
each other, in both their family and
their business relationships. We all
put forth a supreme effort for the
purpose of ultimately winning the game
that is the most important to us. Games
People Play explains the power that
our everyday facades can obtain over
us, but it also gives an escape from
playing the games whenever we set our
minds to do it
William Shakespeare died in 1616.
However, his works continue to live
with the Burton productions and most
recently, with Franco Zefferelli's
sensitive re-creation of "Romeo and
Juliet." The Bard's tale of two "star-
crossed lovers" of Venice caught in a
family feud between the Montagues and
the Capulets seems strangely pertinent
in 1969. For Romeo, a Montague, and
Juliet, a Capulet, defy tradition and
It is shortly after their marriage
that Romeo slays Tybalt, a kinsman of
Juliet's. Romeo does this to avenge
the death of Mercutio, a witty, profound
commentator on Queen Mab and various
other subjects. The story ends on an
ironic note when the feud is dissolved
only after the death of the two lovers.
Leonard Whiting, 17, and Olivia
Hussey, 16, play the young lovers and
treat Shakespeare's lines with reverence
and skill beyond their years. John
McEnery, as Mercutio, is superb.
The color photography is effective
and does not result in an overd»se of
triteness. A Shakespearean purist
could fault the film. Lines are
transposed and the balcony scene is
overplayed. One might say the effort
is more Zefferelli's than Shakespeare's.
Yet, there was no medium of this sort
in the seventeenth century. We think
William would appreciate this powerful
translation from stage to cinema.
