Some movies worth seeing
No author

   The past few days I've been scrounging around trying to see as many movies as possible. The only three worth mentioning are those that still may be showing by the time you read this.
   A Touch of Class is one film that is worth seeing. The two characters, George Segal and Glenda Jackson, are perfect as a zany New York couple. The craziness that flows is delightful. While the viewer might laugh aloud at only a few lines, the movie as a whole isn't a side-splitter, but it does leave one with an "up" feeling when the movie is over.
   Paper Moon, however, is a more intense kind of comedy and follows punch line with either another punch line or a chase sequence. It's a lighthearted story of a bank robber and a bratty kid, set in the depression and beautifully done in black and white. It is also an excellent movie.
   However, better than either one is M*A*S*H. My stomach ached, and it wasn't from nausea. If you like the TV show and aren't offended easily M*A*S*H is the movie for you. Elliot Gould and Donald Sutherland are superb as "Hawkeye" Pierce and "Trapper John" McIntyre. This award-winning movie is possibly the funniest ever. Go see it.
