Transcript MS. SAME' GARTH ■ Eyes that Mystify - Form - Face ft Figure &mt Producer Barry Knight and writer- director Gorton Hall are to be commended for their courage in tackling the subject of a boy's homosexual awakening, exploring it in depth, and not letting the material get out of hand. It's a dangerous topic, and if treated superficially can spell cinematic disaster, something that more than one major studio has learned the hard way. Perhaps the reason The Experiment succeeds where other films have failed is because it was not bound by the restrictions of the MPAA code and depicts the sexual encounters as graphically as necessary, particularly BiJly Joe's first hesitant approach to homosexuality. Apropos evolution, The Experiment is further evidence that producers for the so-called "pornographic market" are not afraid to take risks in elevating the whole genre to new levels of legitimacy. Another recent film from Jaguar, Deep Compasion, also made this attempt, and while it was less successful in achieving its aims, nonetheless it was conceptually a giant step in the right direction. The makers of both films are to be applauded for their daring, for affirming the belief that audiences do not park their mentalityAat the door of a porno theatre but wand and expect something to involve their nqinds as well as their libidos. Now, with the release of Marlon Brando's Last Tango in Paris, there is no longer any distinction between explicit sex scenes in films made for the general and porno markets. The only difference is the frequency of these scenes. Audiences will no longer have to pay $5 for what they can see for $3 down the block, but the foresighted makers of The Experiment have a movie to meet this new challenge. In addition to having a solid and mature script, The Experiment has very substantial production values. Filmed on location near Palm Springs and Indio, Barry Knight's photography captures the scenic beauty of the area as well as the intimate dramatic scenes with skill and sensitivity, making full use of every sophisticated camera movement audiences are accustomed to in general release films.

Editor- Steve Jonsson 4615 MT. VERNON HOUSTON, TEXAS 77006 524-5612 the character to life in a very real and understated performance. He has keen competition from Joel Daniels, in the role of Gary. Daniels almost steals the picture with a natural and offhand portrayal, capturing exactly the right mood and communicating it to the audience with small gestures and facial inflections. The Experiment was directed by Gorton Hall from his original screenplay, and he also plays Billy Joe's father. Hall dominates his few brief scenes with such a comanding screen presence that he almost bursts the seams of the small role. This is not be be confused with overacting. On the contrary, it is an obvious abundance of talent being squeezed into the confines of a small character. Fortunately his writing and directing capacities allow him full vent, and he makes the most of the opportunity. Jimmy Hughes is seen as the salesman and Robert Weaver as the tourist, with David Blair, Tony Ross, Dave Craig, Peter Thomas, and Eva Faye completing the cast. The Experiment is the first major production of 1973, and if it is any indication, this year may prove to be the most exciting yet for gay filmmakers and audiences alike.
