Transcript and Silliness Films FEBRUARY 7. 1986 / MONTROSE VOICE 19 stances and mannerisms seem stiff and contrived. Power is a major disappointment because it makes its point about candidate manipulation early, and then fizzles out fast. After the first 45 minutes, we learn nothing new or interesting about Pete's manipulation and the movie starts to get sleepy. That's when they try to throw in a little intrigue with the subplot of Pete being followed and harrassed. It's a minor diversion that's really never resolved or pursued. In the end, we have a fair idea of a lot of really good actors standing around with little to involve themselves in. The director seems to have let this one slip out of his grasp, and it's really too bad. As for the actors involved, they will hopefully turn up in something that fits their talent more appropriately—with more power to them. □ Uphill All the Way Ordinarily I wouldn't make much mention of a film of this nature, but there may be a lot of unknown "Hee Haw" fans out there who get into Roy Clark and Mel Tillis. These two country boys were in town recently to promote their little, independent comedy/ western, and they were obviously very proud of their effort. Roy had been holding on to this property about two bumbling con men for over 12 years, and when Mel asked him about the same script, they decided to do it together. It's a very basic comedy in the style ofDisney's Apple Dumpling Gang or a Tim Conway movie, but with a few madams and fiesty language thrown in for laughs. Since the press material seems aimed at a family audience, I asked the two why the main town setting seems to have an abun dance of whores (who everyone seems to service) and quite a few sexual connotations. Mel replied that he had watched the families at a preview and they all seemed to enjoy it. I guess kids have been sufficiently jaded by television. Strangely enough, several other big names appear in this silly little home-spun flick. Burl Ives is the sheriff ("We got him out of retirement," said Mel), and Trish Van Devere is a lady in distress (with very little to do). Glen Campbell pops up briefly as a calvary officer, but the real surprise is Burt Reynold's unbilled cameo as a card shark. "I just called him up and asked him, and he said yes and showed up the day he was supposed to," said Mel. "He's a really great guy, but he likes to fix his hair in the camera lens too often," he quipped. I wonder if Burt will be in my movie if I just "call him up and ask him?" I asked to myself. Both Mel and Roy seemed pleased with the way New World Pictures is handling their movie, calling them very "young and aggressive." They admit that things would have been a little funnier if they could have left in some of the things they cut out, but they are still pleased with the final product. Mel says that they are not "trying to make a statement at all." That was fairly obvious when watching the film. With a $3.6 million budget, a cute but childish script, and a lot of television experience, Mel and Roy have produced a product for what they called their "Hee Haw fans and theouter fringes." Complete with plenty of corny country songs like "Is We Goin' Somewheres" and "Stonin' Around," Uphill All the Way comes off as ,a mild diversion for those that are easily entertained.
