Notable Figure for Screen Play

HOLLYWOOD—Eugene Frenke,

producer of the motion picture ver-
sion of "Royal Hunt of the Sun,"
in an exclusive interview, said the
play by British author Peter Shaf-
fer, who also wrote "Five Finger
Exercise," "The Private Ear, the
Public Eye" and "Black Comedy,"
was purchased for the screen by
MGM for $350,000 when running
for a year and a half at London's
West End and on Broadway.

However, Metro dropped the op-
tion because the studio heads felt
that the anti-clerical angle was too
touchy. Frenke then bought the
motion picture rights directly from
the playwright in London. The
producer who most recently com-
pleted "Sylva" by Vercors at Uni-
versal in Hollywood and currently
is preparing at MGM "Feast of
Freedom," both from screenplays
by Dalton Trumbo, made a deal
with .Philip Yordan (author of
"Anna Lucasta") to write the sce-
nario to Shaffer's epic drama and
also act as co-producer.

Richard Burton and Marlon
Brando both were interested in the
central part of Francisco Pizarro,
the Spanish conquistador responsi-
ble for the rape of Peru and the
enslavement of the Inca empire in
the early 16th Century. Philip
Yordan, who had Robert Shaw
under contract from an earlier
film, "The Battle of the Bulge,"
