PAVILION, SELSEY. "THE FAR HORIZONS." featuring Fred MacMurray, Charlton Heston, Donna Reed and Barbara Hale is an exciting Western telling of one of the epic expeditions in America's history. In the year 1803, President Thomas Jefferson, by the purchase of 500,000 square miles of the Louisiana territory from the French, has more than doubled the size of the United States. An expedition is needed to explore and map the new territory, and the film tells the story of this perilous venture. It is an exciting saga of a band of fearless men who open up the territory although faced with almost overwhelming odds—fierce Indians who are determined to drive them from the land, extreme weather conditions and trouble from Renegade white men. Dirke Bogarde and Virginia McKenna form a fine romantic team in their new film "SIMBA." a gripping production in Eastman Colour which deals with the dangers of everyday lives of farmers facing the Mau Mau menace in Kenya. With hope and ambition in his heart, a young Englishman arrives at Nairobi airport. First there is a smiling girl whom he had met in London. and secondly there is terror. "THE SEVEN LITTLE FOYS," with Bob Hope and Milly Vitale, is the story centres of a young song-and-dance man who does a single act, and is determined never to marry. A beautiful Italian dancer, Madeleine, has other ideas and he finally marries her. They live happily together for several years and raise a family, then he returns to his first love —the stage, and a disaster overtakes the family. How he courageously overcomes all difficulties and is re-united with his family makes a touching film.
