Levine's 'The Lion in Winter' Scores Triumphs
BY HERBERT G.
(copyright 1968, JTA, Inc-)
HOLLYWOOD—Joe Levine did it
again! After the outstanding suc-
cess of "The Gradaute," with an
Oscar for his director and five
Golden Globe Awards to his credit,
and some $80,000,000 from domes-
tic box office receipts alone, he
comes up with a new sensational
winner, "The Lion in Winter" —
promising to garner Academy ac-
colades for the two stars Kath-
arine Hepburn and Peter O'Toole,
and for director Anthony Harvey
and playwright-screen writer
James Goldman. Termed by some
a 12th Century "Virginia Woolf"
dramatization, "The Lion in Win-
ter" on the surface deals with the
struggle for supremacy between
Henry H and his wife Eleanor of
Aquitaine and their three sons
Richard, Goeffrey and John, a
quintet of greedy and power-
hungry hyenas constantly at each
other's throat; yet as Miss Hep-
burn summarizes on the screen,
"just an ordinary family, with its
ups and downs."
Levine had a hunch that an un-
conventional story dealing with the
youth of today, such as "The
Graduate," was something audi-
ences wanted to see everywhere.
Long lines at box offices from
New York to Los Angeles, show
that the filmmaker's judgment
was right. With "The Lion in Win-
ter," he vigorously delves into a
love-hate conflict laid in the Moyen
Age but developed with the deep
psychological knowledge of today
and in reality, a historical image
of our time.
The production program of Le-
vine Avco-Embassy surpasses the
keenest estimates. Currently in re-
lease is "The Producers," the Mel
Brooks farce starring Zero Mostel
and Gene Wilder. Being completed
in England is Levine's modern
