    Sting film gives
look backstage
By Amy Doane
Of The Print
“Bring on the Night,”
definitely brings out a “behind
the scenes” look at Sting’s
new band and the musically
talented mastermind himself.
Sting’s movie “Bring on the
Night,” produced by David
Manson and directed by
Michael Apted, not only in­
volves Sting and his music, but
also allows the audience to
view his new band and the
work that' went into Sting’s
new album “Dream of the
Blue Turtles.”
The movie is filmed on loca­
tion in Paris, France and takes
a look at Sting’s new band.
What’s so wonderful about
Nothing, really, except for
the fact that Sting has taken
rock music one step further by
forming a band made up en­
tirely of black jazz musicians.
The movie doesn’t have a
need for a plot. It just lets the
audience sit back and have a
look at Sting doing what Sting
does best: make music. It’s
like watching someone put a
puzzle together. Slowly, piece
by piece, the puzzle takes
shape and after many trial-
and-error sessions it all comes
This is .what “Bring on the
Night” portrays. Each of the
band members are interviewed
and each voices their opinion
about the band.
One major point that is
questioned is why would a jazz
musician want to set aside his
work and mix his skills with
rock music?
One special twist in “Bring
on the Night” touches on
Sting’s ex-wife, Trudie Styler,
and the birth of their son. The
movie allows the viewer to see
Sting as a warm, caring human
being instead of a famous, im­
personal rock-star/actor,
which adds a personal touch to
the movie.
“Bring on the Night” has
humorous moments through
the movie along with nice
scenic shots of Paris, but most
of all it contains good music.
Sting obviously had a good
time putting together this
movie and the same would
seem to go for the rest of the
Do Your
Holley involves students
By Erik Conrad
Staff Writer
Although many teachers
want to help students gain
knowledge, few are truely able
in the class. Cariota Holley,
however, succeeds in this. She
is a dedicated Spanish teacher;
one person who is committed
to teaching.
Mrs. Holley gets students
involved in the learning pro­
cess with a special style. “I try
to involve them in the things I
think would be relevant,”, she
says. Her lessons are a blend
of language and culture from
both textbook and personal
knowledge. “I tell them
everything I know.”
In addition to teaching Mrs.
Holley has also taught in a
foreign study program spon­
sored by the Center for Cross-
Cultural Studies. A few years
ago Mrs. Holley saw the need
of community college students
to study abroad. She feels
there is a necessity for students
to be immersed in the language
and culture of a foreign coun­
try, whether they are beginners
or experienced in the
At this time, one other study
abroad program has been add­
ed to the list, along with two
other foreign work experience
programs available to students
at the College.
Even though Mrs. Holley
does teach Spanish, it is not
that language which comes se­
cond nature to her--it is
English. Havana, Cuba, is the
place of her birth. Her reason
for coming to the United
States is that she received a
scholarship to study at Birm­
ingham Southern College in
While in the U.S., she
taught herself English—with a
little help from her friends and
classmates. “Anybody can do
it,” she says, “if they try hard
enough.” One of her favorite
Spanish proverbs is: “Lo que
mucho cuesta mucho vale,”
which translates to, “That
which costs much is worth
Mrs. Holley’s family con­
sists of her husband James and
her son Stephen. She has been
married for 30 years; the same
length of time she has been
teaching, she points out.
Throughout her teaching
career, she has taught every
level of education, from
elementary to college.

In the fall of 1971, Mrs.
Holley came to the College.
Since then, she has taught
Spanish classes in addition to
being in charge of the Spanish
language study abroad pro­
When asked what makes
teaching exciting for her, she
responded, “my students.”
She explains that every day her
students are different, and
that it is exciting for her “to
see the light in their faces as
they learn.”
Mrs. Holley . maintains a
bond with her students. She
says that she is willing to give
help to her students any time.
The bonds she makes with her
students are also long-lasting;
even today she keeps in touch
with students she has had in
past years.
Plays are ‘warm and caring *
By Thad Kreisher
Entertainment Editor
Drama, drama, and more
drama. In the light of their
major production for this term
“The Increased Difficulty of
Concentration”, the Theatre
Arts Department is presenting
two one-act plays. The plays,
“The Puppet Master” and
“Ludlow Fair”, are set to run
December 10 and 11 at noon,
and December 12 at 7:30 p.m.
in McLoughin Theatre. All
performances are free.
“Ludlow Fair” is to be
directed by Joe Schenck, the
man who assisted Jack Sheilds
in directing “Increased Dif-
ficuty.” Although this is
Schenck’s first attempt at
directing, he has a long list of
credits including assistant
director, stage manager, and
actor,'' •'
The play stars Diana Bauer
and Leslie Roschelle. It’s
about an evening with two
girls discussing their problems,
Mr. Right and life in general.
“Ludkjw Fair” ran once
before at the college in 1973.
Then it was, in the words of
Arts instructor Sheilds, “A
great success,” as he hopes it
will be now. Sheilds is also
concidering booking the play
around to area high schools
for publicity.
“The Puppet Master” is a
“warm and caring play”
directed by Marlese Baird,
who ran sound for “Increased
Difficulty”. According to
Sheilds it’s about “a pair of
puppets who find a touch of
their humanity, but fear to get
unstrung”. It stars Joe Schen­
ck and Leslie Thomas.
