Chayefsky Denounced Vanessa Redgrave's Venom

By JOSEPH POLAKOFF

WASHINGTON —
Three-time Academy
Award winning playwright
Paddy Chayefsky died at
age 58 of cancer in New
York on Aug. 1, but the
Bronx-born humanist lives

permanently in the hearts
of those who remember,
perhaps above all, his re-
buke to Vanessa Redgrave.
While Jews and others
stormed for years against
the actress' espousal of the
PLO and her insults of Is-

rael, it was he who delivered
what hopefully was the
fatal blow to her abuse of
her exposure in public
media to exude her anti-
Zionist venom.
In front of millions of TV
viewers at the 1978
Academy Award cere-
monies before presenting
the Oscar for the best screen
play, he rebuked Redgrave.
As TV critic Tom Shales
later reported, Chayefsky
denounced her "for using
her acceptance speech as a
forum for anti-Zionist clap-
trap earlier that evening."
"I am sick and tired of
people exploiting the oc-
casion of the Academy
Awards for the propaga-
tion of their personal
political propaganda,"
Chayefsky declared.
Shales reported "some
cheered this, some booed,
but Paddy Chayefsky
had again had his say, or
rather his roar."
Described as "a
passionate man in an in-
creasingly passionless age,"
Chayefsky, whose first
name was Sidney, was also
characterized as "a mensch"'
who "with the possible ex-
ception of his own death,
never took anything lying

down." In his way, like some
others in the forefront of the
defense of Jewry, Judaism,
Zionism and Israel, it can be
said he was "a front-line
soldier" for ideals in which
he passionately believed
and did not hesitate to pro-
claim.
At his funeral service,
Herb Gardner, the playw-
right, quoted from "Gideon"
one of Chayefsky's plays,
that "it is passion that car-
ries a man to God and
makes real such things as
beauty, love and God."
Rabbi Joseph Sternstein,
long-time American Zionist
leader was chosen by the
Chayefsky family to recite
the traditional prayers and
psalms. And Arnold Fors-
ter, general counsel of the
Anti-Defamation League,
spoke of the playwright's
unstinting support in
battles against "injustice,
racism, bigotry and for civil
rights — as an American
and a Jew."
In keeping with his
support for Jewish
charities, his family
urged that in lieu of flow-
ers contributions could
be made to New York's
Federation of Jewish
Philanthropies.
The American ORT Fed-
eration published that it
mourned "the passing of a
fellow member and con-
tributor whose consistent
support for Jewish
youngsters in ORT's global
network of vocational/
technical schools was in
keeping with the
humanitarian spirit that
characterized his writing
and his life."

merce with three violations
of the anti-boycott pro-
visions of the Export Ad-
ministration Act by inform-
ing Saudi Arabia about
"another's business rela-
tionships with Israel."
Meyer also is charged
with failure to report to the
department receipt of a
boycott-related request
from Saudi Arabia.
He faces a fine of up to
$10,000 for each violation,
revocation of validated ex-
port licenses, general denial
of export privileges, and/or
exclusion from practice be-
fore relevant department
agencies.
According to a letter
dated July .2 that was sent
to Meyer by Richard M.
Seppa, acting director of
the Department's Office
of Anti-Boycott com-
pliance, Meyer, during
January 1978, "received
a power of attorney, in-
cluding an affidavit,
about business relation-
ships with or in Israel
from Saudi Arabia."
Seppa's letter also said
that Meyer in January 1978
furnished information to
the Saudi Arabian govern-
ment via the Saudi Em-
bassy in Washington. In
March of that year Meyer
furnished an affidavit to the
Saudi government through
its consulate in New York
and in September 1978 he
furnished the affidavit to
agerits in Riyadh
