TUESDAY

8:30p.m.-Freud. John Huston directed this ponderous rendition of the early life of the great pioneer in psychoanalysis. This is not really a very good film, but Montgomery Clift does a creditable job in the difficult title role, and Susannah York is a stunning leading lady. It's good fare for Clift fans and Social Relations majors. Channel 4.

8:00p.m.-The Alamo. This is an ultimate American film. John Wayne produced, directed, and starred in a twelve million dollar salute to chauvinism, racism, and what he feels is the American way. The money was spent on a full-scale model of the Alamo itself and the lavish staging of a full-hour battle sequence. A large part of the film is offensive, but much of it is exciting and fun, and it is worth watching if only to see John Wayne get skewered on a crowbar by one of Santa Ana's mean minions. It is something many of us have wanted to do for years, and it provides much vicarious pleasure, although you have to wait until Friday and Part II to see it. Channel 38.

WEDNESDAY

6:30 p.m.--The Call of the Wild. Jack London's junior high school classic of beasts and the beast in us all becomes a stirring melodrama in the hands of the unlikely duo of Clark Gable and Loretta Young. The film version loses the real feel of the hot bolld of the novel, but it has an appeal of its own, as it makes little pretense of following the drift of the book. The magnificent Jack Oakie is alone worth the price of admission which, of course, is free. Channel 27.

11:00 p.m.--The Eleanor Roosevelt Story. An award-winning documentary of the life of one of the most unlikely giants on the recent American scene. Archibald MacLeish wrote the script.
