walked into my office at the
Goldwyn Studios to discuss
with this . column the
dilemma of the artist in a
controlled society such as
the Soviet system. Pusep is
Jewish and his ethnic back-
ground and religious belief
today•makes him something
like an outcast in Russia.
Anti-Semitism, a latent
disease in his home country
since the days of the Czar,
suddenly has been propelled
again do the forefront after
the 1967 war in the Middle
East. If an artist of Jewish
origin wants to survive in
his profession and as a
human being, he has but one
choice — to demonstrate
that he is a completely
devoted Communist, which
means he must prove his
anti-Israel position. Pusep
says thati5therwise the cre-
ative artist is condemned to
lead a miserable life and
eventually be forced to
leave Russia, as he did in
1974.
Every thought and
expression is controlled by
the state, his philosophy
guided by the principle of
the Soviets who, since the
'days of Lenin, employ the
stage and cinema as the
strongest propaganda force.
A craftsman in the theater
and a filmmaker can only
function if he expresses tht -
views of the USSR
government.

assimilation, says Pusep,
you enter a land of unlim-
ited opportunities. Being a
mouthpiece for the cause
has some interesting ben-
efits, such as government
subsidy for the creative. art-
ist. You don't have to worry
about jobs and about
money, a problem the
actors constantly face in the
West. If you combine your
talent with a straight busi-
nesslike attitude, you
always will work and eat
but sacrifice your integrity
as a free agent. Pusep con-
eludes that he made his
choice rather to starve and
remain responsible for his
own success or failure.

"Treblinka," a book by
French-Jewish journalist
Jean-Francois Steiner,
deals with the sufferings
during World War _II when
the Russians and the Jews
fought side by side to rid the
world of Nazi oppression.
Darryl Hickman, the for-
mer child actor who bought
the novel originally pub-
lished some 10 years ago,
says he wants to produce a
feature film from the stir-
ring account of one group,
the only one ever to success-
fully escape from the
extermination center of
Treblinka.

Erich Maria Remarque,
who after war's end wrote a
most powerful book about
sufferings in German con-
centration camps, is the
author of "Heaven Has No
Favorites," now made into
a motion picture by Sydney
Pollack under the title of
"Bobby Deerfield" for a
joint Warner - Columbia
release. The late
Remarque's novel is the
only one of his dealing with
a simple man-woman rela-
tionship without - touching
upon the fury of war as he
did in his very first one,
"All Quiet On the Western
Front," and with the plight
of the homeless victims as
he did "Arch of
Triurriph."

The bittersweet romance
of "Bobby Deerfield" deals
with a Grand Prix racing
ace portrayed with restraint
by Al Pacino and an exuber-
ant woman on the brink of
death essayed by Swiss
actress Marthe Keller. Pol-
lack transposed the picture
against the background of
an Alpine mountain village
to move on to Florence,
Paris and the lake country
of northern Italy.

Joseph Wiseman portrays
a company - attorney of
Loren Hardeman I (Sir Lau-
rence Olivier), head of a
giant automobile factory at
odds with his own clan in
"The Betsy," from the pen
by Harold Robbins who also
serves as co-producer of the
picture based on his best-
selling novel. Emanuel L.
Wolf, head of. Allied Artists,
presents the film also star-
ring Robert Duvall, Kath-
arine Ross, Janice Rule and
Ed Herrmann. The
screenplay is by Walter
Bernstein and William Bast.
