Francis Ford Coppola's first film, which doesn't automatically mean it's good. TONIGHT FOR SURE! was directed by the 22-year-old filmmaker before he hooked up with Roger Corman and made his first official film, DEMENTIA 13 (1963). This picture is a nudie western (not graphic, however, and

no worse than most R-rated pictures) about a pair of dirty old men who sneak into a burlesque house and rig the electricity supply to go out at midnight. Pretending to be members of the League Against Nudity, the two men actually lead a comic life of perversions, one peeking at women with a

telescope, the other imagining he's seeing naked women everywhere. The film experienced a short revival in 1982, but its only purpose is a cinematically historic one. Carmen Coppola, who also scored the NAPOLEON revival, contributes an especially annoying score. Needless to say, Coppola refuses to

recognize TONIGHT FOR SURE! as a skeleton in his closet.
