Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta A WARM WELCOME AWAITS YOU FRIDAY, AUGUST 21, 1970 LISTINGS FOR SATURDAY, AUGUST 22 TO FRIDAY, AUGUST 23 Warsaiv Ravaged By Ruthless Nazis Rape Of Poland Documented Sept. 1 marks the 31st anni- versary of AdoU Hitler's invas- ion of Poland. The invasion triggered the holocaust of the Second World War that was to rage throughout Europe and most tlie globe before it ended in tlie summer of 1945. To mark this occasion CBC television will present Septem- ber '39, a special one-hour doc- umentary that graphically il- lustrates Hitler's brutal rape oJ Poland dui'ing that fateful month. It will be telecast Wed- nesday, Aug. 26 at p.m. on CJLH-TV, Channel 7. The film was produced in 1 postwar Poland after years of' searching film archives scat- tered throughout the world. Most of the footage in the final, edited version is from Polish, German, Hungarian and Czech- cslovakian sources. The Eng- lish language narration is spoken by the late J. Frank Willis. Tlie documentary begins with rare footage of the carefree life in Poland during the sum- mer of 1039 as Warsaw's 000 citizens went about their normal lives, confident that Hitler1 would honor his pact with Poland and, if he didn't, Poland's armed forces could easily repel any German ag- gression. These films show a smiling people lulled into a false sense of security as a storm, steadily gathered on their frontiers. Tlie initial scenes contrast sharply with the horror and carnage of the Fuehrer's blitz- krieg, or lightning war, which ravaiged Poland beginning Sept. 1. The superbly trained and equipped armies of the Third NAZIS GLOAT IN DEVASTATED WARSAW Reich struck swiftly on several iroats along the fron- tier, and ended with tlie capitu- of 'Fortress Warsaw' a month later. The once-proud metro- polis the last, desperate out- post of resistance lay in ruins following a relentless iege. Just-days after the invasion started the Luftwaffe ruled the skies and the Polish air force was annihilated. The documentary contains startling scenes of German air power in action raining de- struction on Polish forces and and ruthlessly strafing helpless refugees on choked highways. The Fuehrer himself is pictured in a private railway car outside Warsaw impatient- ly awaiting the city's fall so he can begin his victory march. A particularly moving se- quence depicts the horror of the last cavalry charge in history as Poland's crack cavalry made a gallant but futile counter- attack and was wiped out by Hitler's mechanized war ma- chine. The siege of Warsaw is pain- stakingly documented. The film shows a city in ruins, bulg- ing with refugees, -constantly under fire from the Luftwaffe and heavy artillery, its food and medical supplies almost non-existent. Then, mercifully, the siege lifts and Warsaw and Poland capitulate. The Fuehrer has his victory march through empty streets. September '39 was directed for the Studio of Documentary Films, Warsaw, by Jerzy Bos- sak and Waclav- Kazmierczak. Producer is Frederick Gavsie. Music is by Andrzej Markow- ski, conducting the Cracow Philharmonic Orchestra. Eng- lish version is by Film House, Toronto. Weil-Known Face To Appear In Film Jeff Thompson, the Marlboro Man, whose face has been seen by countless millions viewing the cigarette commercial, has been cast in Warner Bros.' "The AU-American star- ring Jon Voight. Thompson, a former cowboy and ranch owner, will portray the father of Anne Archer and husband of .J_aye P, Morgan in the film, which Charles East- man is directing from his own screenplav on location in Vaca- ville, Calif. GUEST Singer Dionne Warwick, foremost interpre- ter of songs by Burt Bach- arach and Hal David, joins guests Tom.- Jones, Barbara Eden and Jose Feliciano on the Eugelbert Special Thursday night, Au- gust 27, on CFCN-TV, Channel 13. Griffin Falters The withdrawal of Arthur Treacher last week (Aug. 14) from tlie Merv Griffin Show was part of a wholesale change in the late-night talk program because of low au- dience ratings. Griffin, seen nightly on KFBB-TV, Cable Channel 11, had his long-time producer Bob Shanks cut from the roster by CBS. Prior to this, a director, writers, bookers and air talent were given the heave-ho. Shanks had been with Griffin since 1962, when the show died in a daytime spot on NBC-TV and later when it was syndi- cated by Westinghouse. Treacher, Griffin's sidekick for eight years, and a veteran movie and stage actor, was, like the others, a victim of the ratings of two other late-night hosts Dick Cavett and John- nv Carson. "Carson on NBC-TV is still the king of the couch set, but Cavett, who started last year1 on ABC-TV, has been easing up the Nielsen scale. He hasn't passed Griffin yet. Along with the personnel cuts, there are plans for the Griffin show to dispense with the desk- and-sofa routine and move into comedy-variety acts. There are indications Griffin will move his headquarters from New York to Angeles, presum- ably because guests are more available on the West Coast. Evidently Cavett (not seen in Lethbridge) is tlie one to watch. He takes time with his guests and, unlike Carson, 3ives them a chance to talk out. And he has an increasingly faithful number of fans among tlie young. PLASTIC PERMA CASE LUNCH KIT Extra larne capacity, prac- tically indestruclible, assort- ed colors.
