bv EDVARD RADZINSKY translated by GERRY MAY with David Buck. Kika Markham John Justin and Catherine Lacey

Nearly everywhere in the world film directors are subject to interference from Head Office.' In the USSR, where the film industry is State-owned. the motives may be different from those which prevail in Hollywood and London but the pressures are the same.

The Film Makers, which was a great success on the Moscow stage about four years ago, tells the story of a young film director who is making a rather adventurous film and who faces a crisis in both his professional and his personal life.

Edvard Radzinsky , the author, is himself a well-known Soviet screen-writer, and his sardonic view of ' the film makers ' is certainly based upon his own experiences in the studios.
