individual making his own
decisions. Yet he expressed
mixed emotions about leav-
ing the label of Embassy
Pictures behind, a trade
mark connected with him for
39 years, with a total of 491
pictures to his credit either
as distributor, producer or
both.
The career of Levine reads
like a Horatio Alger story.
Born in Boston, Levine was
working from the time he
was 14 running the gamut of
occupations from shining
shoes to managing a restau-
rant.
He was a Boston film dis-
tributor, and in 1959, Levine
acquired the epic "Hercules"
in Italy and spent $1,500,000
\ on promotion, saturating the
country. He grossed, jointly
with Warner Bros., more
than $9,000,000 on the inex-
pensively made film.

The rabbis taught: It says,
"You shall not hate your
brother in your heart." (Le-
viticus 19:17). For a man
might think: I must not
strike him or beat him or
curse him, but I may hate
him. Therefore it says, "In
