The book was a success. The movie is a monster success. Maas thinks that maybe, since the theme dealt with a man's battle against corruption, that the timing was right. Timing is everything in the movie business. People, sick to death over what's been happening in Washington, delighted in the movie about one man winning out over the forces of official evil It's oversimplifying to say success is just a question of timing It was, of course, a crackerjack movie Maas had a lot to do with that He had written "The Valachi Papers" and was unhappy with the way the movie version of that came out. So, when "Serpico" was sold, he insisted on some i ontrol. The first few screenplays weren't right, he >avs. so he "structured" the <-creenplay that was finally used You might be interested in knowing what's happened i to the real Serpico. Peter Maas says the ex-cop is 38 now, living in Switzerland. He went there to get "things sorted out in his and Maas doesn't Peter Maas made people think of behaving better.

"He still does pretty good with the girls." Maas says. "Only now they're Swiss and Swedes and French, not Americans." Maas says the movie's effect has been a healthy one "It's made people think of behaving better." If "Serpico" was one of the pictures of the year, maybe "For Those I Loved" will be one of the pictures of the century. That, anyhow, is the perhaps over-optimistic hope of the author of that book, a tragic man named Martin Gray The book tells the story ol his life the Warsaw Ghetto under the Nazis, concentration camps, then worse He survived World War II's greatest horrors, came to New York, made a fortune, went back to France, married and had four children and then his entire family was wiped out in a forest fire in the south of France t Still, he manages to be an optimist His book was a huge hit in Europe and is doing fairly well here. It will be a movie, with the script done by the noted Yugoslavian writer director, Alexander Petrovic. could be the picture of the century." Gray says. "It could be another "Gone With the Wind."
