De Grunwald Turns Profit With an Idea By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-Anatole tfe Gronwald Is the fair-hatred boy of the film world today. He did it with a staple, golden De Grunwald got the idea aft* er a movie company spent $40 million filming and beating the drums for "Cleopatra," starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. His idea: To make another picture using the same stars — but leaving out the Nile River and the asp—and costing $36,750,000 less to produce. There were no costly delays, no big rows. Anatole, an old hand at handling temperamental stars, brought the picture — "The V.I.P.S"-in on time-at its budgeted price of $3,250,000, which includes $1 million for Miss Taylor, now her standard fee for a film.

But the real winner is producer De Grunwald. His glossily spun cinematic taffy .is expected to gross $16 million in America alone, up to $25 million or more on the world market. Now all Hollywood doors are open to him. How did he pull off his big coup? "It wasn't easy," recalled Anatole, a soft-spoken, grayhaired man with the easy friendliness of an affable English sheep dog. "It was difficult in that everybody in the world was offering them something. Both Miss Taylor and Burton are choosy, and their business matters were terribly complicated. "Finally, it boiled down to one thing-they liked the script." De Grunwald feels the astronomical sum paid to Miss Taylor was well spent. "I'll save money on unimportant things," he remarked, "but I'll never save money on scripts or actors."
