"Broadcast Neu00,s" is wmthwhile comedy Jane is promoted to the bureau's managing editor posi- tion and has a final moral dilemma when Tom invites her to share a week's vacation with him on a Caribbean island. Her ultimate decision is consistent with her professional code of ethics. Written, produced and directed by James L. Brooks, the comedy plays very well, partly because the situations are well conceived and the characters defined enough to care about. The movie opens with a thumb- nail picture of the trio as youngsters which seems awkward at the start but which gains in resonance as the movie progresses. Aaron, the oldest, is shown graduating from high school, an overachiever roundly hated by his classmates. Tom is in grammar school, where his bad grades are helped by sym- pathetic women teachers, while Jane is a precocious little girl obsessed with the precise use of words. The interaction between the three is a pleasure to watch, with Brooks making a gruff ted- dy bear, Hurt conveying the smooth superficiality of the calculating self-promoter, and Miss Hunter winning sympathy as the perfectionist who demands most from herself and who cares more about her job than her personal relationships. ttt VINCENNES American National Bank Bicknell - Sandborn Vincennes Drive-in Facilities - Member F.D.I.G. A Full Service Bank RUXER Miss Hunter's performance compensates for the character's vulnerability by affecting a tough exterior, talking out of the corner of her mouth in tradi- tional hard-boiled journalistic style. She is also given to moments of sobbing aloud when she is alone, then com- posing herself and going about her business. It Is a telling pic' ture of a modern woman, game- ly struggling to be an indepen- dent person in spite of the penalties attached to such a status. The comedy also succeeds on the level of the depiction of a news bureau which is done with enough realistic veneer, yet wRh a controlled satiric thrust that outdoes the wild ex- aggerations of the film "Net- work." Judy becomes the movie's mouthpiece in criticiz- ing television news as being more concerned with the image and its packaging than with the news story itself. The result is a romantic com- edy that is both funny and wor- 'thwhile.

By HENRY HERX USCC Dept. of Communication NEW YORK (NC) -- "Broad- cast News" (Fox) is a likable romantic comedy that centers on the morals and ambitions of young, upwardly mobile pro- fessionals trying to make their way in the world of network journalism. At the story's center is Jane Craig (Holly Hunter), a pro- ducer in the Washington bureau of a television network that bears some resemblance to CBS. Her colleague and best friend is Aaron Altman (Albert Brooks), a top-notch, award- winning reporter who yearns to become a network anchorman. Complicating their lives is Tom Grunick (William Hurt), a personable newcomer at the bureau who comes across con- vincingly on the tube as he reads the teleprompter texts of stories he barely understands and couldn't possibly write. Charming in his seemingly unassuming, country-boy man- ner, he is confident that he can make the grade as network an- chor. Though Tom represents everything Jane's professional journalistic standards reject, she is attracted to him, as are hhe rest of the women in his wake. When she finally suc- cumbs to his charm and agrees to spend the night with him, she finds Aaron needs her more after making a disastrous test in the anchor slot. However, Jane is furious that Tom agrees and calls off their rendevous. The conclusion is precipitated by the network's firing many of its Washington bureau staff as an economy measure. Aaron is resigned to the fact that he will never make a network anchor and goes off -to try a local station out West. Tom is sent to the network's London bureau as part of his grooming to become the net- work anchor.
