    They're no Clarke Gable 

    The outcome of the president election remains uncertain in Ohio and elsewhere, but regardless of which candidate wins, the loser may have a future in film.

    First, Michael Moore proved in Fahrenheit 9/11 what an interesting leading man George W. Bush can be. Now, Director George Butler's Going Upriver: The Long War of John Kerry is about to do the same for the Democratic presidential contender.

    The feature-length documentary is loosely based on the best-selling book Tour of Duty by Douglas Brinkley. The film is sure to spark protests from the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, who would prefer that Kerry, their former comrade, be left up a creek without a paddle.

    The movie will open Friday, Oct. 1, at one of the cinema complexes in Montrose. Watch for the listings.
