Holfo vood Morals --. - -,: Have 'Bright Look' Scheuer 100 Scripts Get Clean Bill; Mann Discusses Roman Fall " r : BY PHILIP K. SCHEUER Hollywood is cleaning housrvThi is the word from Geoffrey Shurlock, administrator of the Production Code. The effects, however, will not really begin to show till 1963.. .: , "It looks as if many of these questionable and border-! line subjects have had it in Hollywood," Shurlock declared. "There's a brighter look all around in the pictures coming up." Of 100 scripts recently submitted to the MPA for approval, not one dealt . with gangsterism, juvenile delinquency, dope addict tion or an illegal operation. "And only six of the 100 are really bothersome. We're getting such good co-operation from produc ers that I'm sure all the problems will be resolved from the' code's standpoint before-these pictures are seen by the public." . , FILM FESTIVALS: ARE THEY WORTH THE EFFORT? "I read with great interest your Aug. 5 (Sunday Calendar) article," writes Irving M. Levin, director of the San Francisco International Film Festival. "Your report on the Berlin festival, which I also attended, is excellent. But upon rereading. I am unable to find an answer to the question posed by the title." 13 there one? Mr. Levin, who is hardly unbiased, thinks there is: "Festivals are, of course, worth the effort." He cites these benefits: opportunity to compare filmic techniques, acting and direction, and to gain in-; sight into the culture of each nation and of its progress ' in the art of motion pictures. Also the attendant publicity, which "spreads this information around the ! world."- 'We are all striving to emphasize the motion picture r' a3 a true art form," Mr. Levin adds, and I concur. Of this column he asks "a positive approach" and "a sound endorsement." Well, let's say I ain't agin' 'eni . Guinness Heads for Roman Fall As a starter, Anthony Mann has landed Alec Guinness for his "Fall of the Roman Empire." This is the "El Cid" director's next for Samuel Bronston. Sir Alec will portray Marcus Aurelius. In London recently, Mann reeled off a whole list of hopefuls for the rest of his principals, mentioning Kirk, Douglas, Sophia , Loren, Stephen Boyd, Richard Harris, Albert Finney, John Giegud and Terence Stamp.-Wellt could be. - "We are taking Rome at the -greatest moment of its history, of the empire and philosophy of Marcus Aurelius," Mann explained. "He recognized the empire I; must tan unless it trained its barbarians to become Roman citizens; that it was not walls or armies or frontiers that counted, but rather the education of all, the making them a part of you. It was the Pax Romano time, a kind of United Nations. "What will we try to say? That it was all closely aligned with today. Rome carried the .seeds of its own destruction; the army was bought and the senate, which refused to support the great experiment, was bought. It doesn't matter who or. what you are,: if you don't change with the times you are destroyed." Mann said he has found his ancient Rome in Sagunto, Spain, well preserved on a mountaintop outside Valencia, and a Roman aqueduct in Segovia. 'Valley of Swords' New Biggie One of the bigger productions I wasn't able to get to, outside Madrid, was "Valley of the Swords." Although the actdrs were mainly Spanish they were led by Venezuela's Spartaco Santoni as Fernan Gonzalez, "count and unifier", of Castile in the ninth century-such far-from-home North Americans as Cesar Romero, Broderick Crawford and Frankie Avalon were also actively participating. Linda Darnell had had to bow out because of illness and was replaced by Alida Valli. The heroine, the infanta, was played by Mexico's , Tere . Velasquez. The cumulative battle between the Spaniards and " th Moors of Abderraman III was directed by Javier Set in Carazo and employed the customary "cast of thousands' The Spanish-American co-production was headed, on the American side, by Hollywood's Sidney Pink and Richard C. Meyer otherwise Cinemagic, Inc. X.' "3 GE.NE T1ERSEY appears in "Advine and Conufnt,'' to screen today at a score of theaters and drive-ins. Story Verne' Basis of New Film Thriller Irwin Allen's film produc tion of Jules v erne's "Five Weeks in a Balloon" opens next Tuesday at Los Ange- lest Hollywood, Olympic, Century and other theaters and drive-ins. . Red Buttons, Fabian, Barbara Eden, Cedric Hard- wicke, Peter. Lbrre, Richard Haydn,' and Barbara Luna costar in this science fiction story of & flight across East Africa in a giant wicker basket , ... Fabian and Hardwicke plan to pilot their ship into the African interior to claim land for the British crown. Rivals in this effort are a group of slave traders who want to, keep the land for themselves and the slave trade," so there is a race to see who will make the claim first. Buttons plays a news paper reporter along for the ride. 'Bird Man' Now in Multiple Run "Bird. Man of Alcatraz" is now playing in a multiple run, including ' Orpheum, Pix, Olympic, Van Nuys and other theaters and drive-ins. Burt Lancaster, Karl Maiden, Thelma Ritter, Neville Brand, Betty Field and Ed-mond, O'Brien star, in this story based" on the life of Robert Stroud, a federal pen itentiary inmate since 1900.
