(Copyright, 1965. JTA, Inc.)

HOLLYWOOD—Josef Auerbach,
a veteran film producer for almost
50 years. who guided "Ecstasy." the
first Hedy Lamarr picture (when
the actress' name was still Hedy
Kiesler). in Czechoslovakia in the
early 1930s, fled to South America
when Hitler rose to power, made
a comeback in Hollywood with the
re-release of "Our Gang" comedies,
and won an Academy Award last
year for his French-made . short
subject "Chagall," now is execu-
live of the million-dollar feature,
"The Theft of the Mona Lisa." Cur-
rently before the cameras in Paris
and Rome, the film has Oscar-win-
ner George Chakiris co-starring
with French-Czech actress Marina
Vlady under Michael DeVille's di-
Auerbach said the original
screenplay, written by Vienna-born
Hollywoodian Walter Reisch, is
based on the 1911 theft from the
Louvre of the Da Vinci masterpiece
which brought out police in every
country of Europe and created a
worldwide sensation.
Kirk Douglas, due to the extended
shooting schedule in Israel of
"Cast a Giant Shadow," a Mirisch
picture in which he essays the
part of Col. Mickey Marcus, had
to cancel his guest star appearance
in Paramount's "Is Paris Burning?"
as General George S. Patton, hero
of World War II.
Paul Graetz, producer of "Is
Paris Burning?" announces that
Orson Welles has been signed for
the role of the Swedish consul
general who convinced De Gaulle
that the German commander was
willing to save the city against
the orders from Hitler.
Joseph E. Levine is producing,
in England, "The Idol," with scenes
to be photographed on location as
well as in the studios of London.
Serving under Levine as acting
producer is Leonard Lightstone
with director Daniel Petrie guid-
ing such players as Kim Stanley,
John Leyton and Michael Parks
(the latter the "Adam" from De-
Laurentiis' "The Bible"). "The
Idol" is based on a story by Ugo
Liberatore with a screenplay by
Millard Lampell who dramatized
"The Wall" for Broadway five
years ago.
Janet Margolin will not forget
her first scene in Joe Levine's
"Nevada Smith" currently before
the cameras in Mammoth, Calif.
The sensitive young actress, most
recently a Jewish refugee in "Mori-
turf,'' had a 3 a.m. call on location
in the California Sierras, at an
elevation of 8,300 feet, to the off-
stage accompaniment of 300 bellow-
ing cattle. At four o'clock in the
morning she was involved in a
knife fight between Steve McQueen
(portraying Nevada Smith) and
villain Martin Landau.
Milton Berle has re-negotiated
his 30-year NBC-TV contract to
a non-exclusive basis and now re-
turns to television in a big way,
with six shows already set and
three pending.

Hostile Crowd Squelches
Aussie Neo-Nazi's Speech

NE JTA)—The first
public rally was held here Tuesday
by the Australian National Party.
Complete with jackbooted and
brown-shirted troopers, the meet-
ing in a Melbotu-ne public park,
lasted exactly 15 minutes before a
continued uproar from a hostile
crowd forced its closing.
The principal speech was de-
livered by Juris von Rand, "state
leader" and national organizing,
secretary of the Australian neo-
Nazis. He outlined his party's
"policy" from a mound bedecked
with swastika-painted rocks. Von
Raand, who came to Australia from
Germany eight years ago, said that
one of his party's main aims was
"to justify many of Hitler's poll
cies." He said that Hitler "was not
as evil as he was painted."
Concerning Jews, he said his
party was "not violently anti-
Semetic, but we don't believe that
anything like six million Jews were
killed in Germany and, anyway,
most of them were probably
criminal types or diseased."

That quadruple threat to the
music profession, MANTOVANI,
conductor, composer, arranger and
violinist, brings his renowned con-
cert orchestra to Detroit's Masonic
Auditorium for a single perform-
ance on Oct. 9.
