ROANOKE, Va 4AP-A /ma* wfco fooled tike eity of Le*tt£te*u Va.. iato faetoevisg he was goiog to fUm a Civil War epic there says be was DoerdY a toady man ^ [^ things g«t out of control. An "bpea letter to ihe people of Lexington, Va.'* was seat by Mel Greenberg to the Roanoke Times from Hilis- boro. Ohio, where Greenberg, 52. is being held on a charge of defrauding an innkeeper. Greenberg. a widower, said he was manager of a motel in Pasadena. Calif., until the motel closed in 1973. Greenberg said he then made a bad investment in a bakery, tried the massage parlor business and then began driving around It All Got Out of Control the country. While seated in a restaurant outside Lexington, about 50 miles north of here, he asked two other customers on June 3 if they knew of any land that could be leased for about three weeks. They said there was plenty of land and asked what he needed it for. Greenberg said. "I answered with the first thing that came to mind." he said. "That 1 was from California and 1 was from Universal International and we were interested in making a pic- ture." Greeaberg said a real estate woman to whom he was later introduced asked who was io the movie and "1 had to think real fast." he said. "I said Burt Lancaster. Kirk Douglas. Audrey Hepburn and Phil Silvers." The next day 80 per cent of the town knew" about the film. "I realized things were getting out of hand, and I was about to leave town." The real estate woman spoke to an innkepper and soon he had a suite. "Up until this tune i was paying cash for everything, and I had not broken any laws that 1 knew of." The innkeeper was "a fantastic host" and "it really made me feel bad because his loss was a considerable amount because I signed for everything." Telephone calls started pouring in from those seeking parts in his movie, some from out-of-state. "Everything was getting out of hand with all kinds of stories that I was filming nude scenes and many said, wMefc supposedly pay other sex acts." he said. The sheriff and commonwealth's attorney started checking his credentals. Greeflberg said he told them talk about the sex and nude scenes was all wrong. He said he told them when a girl auditioned for the one nude scene in the movie, another girl was present and "when she exposed her body" it was "usually for a moment." Wives, girlfriends and children were brought in to audi- . tion for the nude scene, he He kf i the wgbt of June 9 after having dieer in Roaa said. AA 1 drove all night." he wrote, "looking for a small town with a cabin to cook by j a ake. "i was tired of running and 1 was relieved when the Hillsboro. Ohio sheriff's department knocked on my door around midnight." Greenberg said. He won't fight extradition to Virginia. Greenberg said, add ing that he's aware of "the hostility that awaits me" on his return. Wrong Mike, Mark Get Unaddressed Card SOUTH ST. PAUL. Mian. (AP) -- A post card mailed in Montana was delivered to Mike aad Mark Gustafson of South St. Paul, even though it had no address whatsoever. The correspondence part of the card mailed at Custer Battlefield National Monument said. "Dear Mike and Mark. We have been to Wisconsin and now we are going to Colorado." It was signed "Mom." Somehow the card got deliv- ered to the Gustafson boys. Mike and Mark. Their mother. Mrs. Philip Gustafson. thought the Postal Service deserved commendation for the effort. She said there was only one thing wrong in the way the card was handled. Mrs. Gustafson had not been in Montana and had not mailed the card. It was intended for some other Mike and Mark -- somewhere in this broad land.
