The special is the tenth in THE AMERICAN PARADE series of programs dealing with crucial themes in American social and constitutional history. The series, produced by CBS News for the Network, is being presented over a three-year period. On May 17, 1954, the Supreme Court altered the course of American history when it ruled that racial segregation in public schools was 'inherently unequal" and ordered desegregation "with all deliberate speed." That landmark decision was titled Brown vs. Board of Education, but the Brown case, of Topeka, Kansas, was only one of five that were consolidated by the Court for judgment. It was Briggs vs. Clarendon County. S.C. another one of the five which began first, proceeded under the most dramatic circumstances and, in the final judgment, most influenced the Court's decision. "With All Deliberate Speed" .recounts the story of what happened in Summerton, S.C. (in Clarendon County) between 1947 and 1952 the dramatic confrontations over civil rights that led ultimately to the Supreme Court decision. Winfield portrays the Rev. J.A. Delaine, a poor black minister who had to wage his struggle for civil liberties even among his own congretation, and Randolph plays a white Federal judge. Waites Waring, a native South Carolinian, whose highly controversial dissenting opinion upheld the case of the black plaintiffs. Winfield, who was nominated for an Oscar for his role in "Sounder," has also been fea tured in "Hustle,""R.P-M.," and "The Lost Man." On television he starred as Roy Campanella in "It's Good to Be Alive and recently portrayed Jim in "Huckleberry Finn." Among John Randolph's many screen credits are "Ser-pico." "Earthquake." and "Little Murders." His stage career, spanning almost 40 LARGE SELECTION ofPAPBSACXS NOW AVAILABLE BARRON'S BOOKS M1N.MGH productions, includes roles in "Come Back, Little Sheba," 'The Sound of Music" "Paint Your Wagon," and "Inherit the Wind." He has many television credits, including the specials "Collision Course." "The Missies of October," "Pueblo" and "A Continual Roar of Musketry." Page Out of History Paul Winfield stars in "With All Deliberate Speed," the dramatic story of the school desegregation case that led to the momentous 1954 Supreme Court ruling that all public schools must desegregate "with all deliberate speed." The special, tenth in a series of THE AMERICAN PARADE programs on crucial themes in American history, will be shown Wednesday, June 16 at 9: 00 pm on channel 12. A Night To Remember Bisque - Greenware COMPLETE CERAMIC! FACILITIES SPRINGFIELD CERAMICS 759-3567 Paul Winfield won't soon forget the night of Saturday, Nov. 8,975. The actor has a memento to remind him of it: a scar resulting from nine stitches taken in his right eyebrow. Moreover, he will recall that was also the night CBS burned the house down. The occasion was the filming of "With All Deliberate Speed," a special dramatizing a little-known civil-rights legal battle in South Carolina. The first of two scenes being filmed that night in rural north Florida called for the Rev. DeLaine (Winfield) to be sitting in his bouse when he hears gunshots: he lunges to the floor, a bullet shatters the window, and he returns the fire with his own rifle. On the fifth take, about 10: 30 p.m., the timing between Win-field's dive to the floor and the remote-controlled breaking of the window by a special-effects device was just a fraction of a second off and a shard of glass caught him above the eye. Winfield was rushed to the nearest hospital, in Thomas-ville, Ga., about 25 miles away. When he returned about 1: 00 a.m., stitched, bandaged, and the corner of his face swollen like a bird's egg. Winfield pronounced himself fit enough to continue work and the next scene was set up. That scene called for the house to be burned to the ground and for DeLaine to save his family from the flames and plead with firemen to save the house. The ramshackle house bad been purchased, and arrangements made, by CBS News just for that purpose. Now, with a fire truck from the Monticello Fire Department standing by along with a couple hundred local residents who heard of the unusual goings-on and had gathered from miles around to watch the biggest bonfire in Jefferson County history was ignited. While the cameras kept rolling, the actors went tough the dramatic scene over and over without stopping. By 2:00 a.m., 45 minutes later, the house was a charred, smoking heap and the unrepeatable footage was safely on film. Later, Winfield was to say that the first thing he thought of when his eye was cut was, "Can we match this?" Because of the logistics of filmmaking, scenes are shot out of consecutive order. Thus a scene to be shot the next Monday, with Winfield's face swollen and discolored, might well take place in the film before scenes that were shot earlier, before the injury. With the magic of makeup and some artful camera-angling, however, Winfield was able to continue, and all was made to match. Randolph Indentifies With Waring It's unlikely that veteran actor John Randolph has ever had the attachment for any of his scores of role that he has with that of Federal Judge J. Waites Waring, whom he portrays in "With All Deliberate Speed." "I identify very closely with Judge Waring," says Randolph, "so closely that it's painful, and that's why I'm so excited about playing him." Randolph knew Judge Waring and, like him, is also a native South Carolinian. Perhaps most important. Randolph greatly admires Judge Wa-ring's courage in upholding constitutional principles. "He was quite old when he was appointed a Federal judge by Roosevelt." says Randolph. "I don't think he had more than eight or nine years on the bench, but in those few years he changed the face of the South." "With All Deliberate Speed," the tenth in THE AMERICAN PARADE series of special programs on American historical and constitutional themes, will be broadcast Wednesday, June 18 at 9:00 pm.
