Israel Film Gets 'R' Rating at Cannes Show;
`Tsimmes Talent' Has Numerous Revelations
By GEORGE FRIEDMAN
(Copyright 1970, JTA, Inc.)
Any lingering doubts about Is-
rael's coming of age should be dis-
pelled by the "R" rating given by
the Motion Picture Association of
America to a newly imported
Israeli film, "The Dreamer." An
"R" rating bars persons under a
certain age, usually 16 or 17, unless
accompanied by an adult. The dis-
tributors and productr Ami Artzi

ing—admission to all, with parental
guidance advised for minors.

at the recent 1970 Cannes Film
Festival, is said to contain a love

requiring foreign film distributors

raeli earnings there, a practice
followed in a number of other
A better solution might be the

East and related current events
and personalities, especially if the
rights to appropriate but already
used titles can be obtained. Con-
sider the possibilities:
