LUFT (Copyright, 1961, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.) CURRENT ANNUAL DIVIDEND--PAYABLE QUARTERLY HOLLYWOOD  Marlene Dietrich, appearing for charity last Chanukah, has now been cast for quite a: different role in Stanley Kramer's forthcoming motion picture, "Judgment at Nurenberg." Miss Dietrich will portray the widow of a German General, executed by the Allies after an earlier war crimes trial, to testify post- humously to protect his honor as a soldier who was forced to follow orders. The still glamorous Marlene, born Maria Magdalene van Losch, descendant of an aristocratic family and her- self daughter of a high army officer, in real life has shown nothing but contempt for the Nazis, time and again re- fusing to return to Germany after Hitler's rise to power in 1933, even though the propaganda ministry had prom- ised her the highest honors in the cinema 'of the Reich. Helping the U.S. war effort instead as an entertainer and moral booster on many fronts, Miss Dietrich returned to Germany only once during the immediate post-war period to make a picture for American director Billy Wilder, "A Foreign Affair," in which she portrayed an unrepentant Nazi, cashing in on the turmoil of the aftermath. Recent trips to both Germany and Israel have shown Miss Dietrich vividly where her friends and admirers are. Her former countrymen are still sore about Marlene's allegiance to the cause of freedom. While in Germany last summer, I read in the "liberal" Frankfurt press a rather cynical item stating that the time had come to  forgive Marlene Dietrich for "her past errors," which doubtless meant her much cirticized loyalty to America during the Nazi era. Stanley Kramer announces that "Judgment at Nuren-' berg went before the cameras at Universal-Interna-[ tional Studios February 22, with Kramer once more daub-I ling as producer-director. Author Abby Mann, meanwhile,! has revised and enlarged his original television story, in his screen play maintaining the same plot line but adding: characters and changing some of the fictitious names of "Judgment at Nurenberg." Judy Garland (Mrs. Sidney Luft), making her movie comeback in the first dramatic part of her career, will essay the role of Irene Hoffman, a thirty-year-old German girl who has spent 12 years in a Nazi prison for a perjury she didn't commit now appearing against the former judges of the Reich who framed her at the height of their power. In retrospect, we learn that she befriended a Jew- ish man (in life Miss Garland is married to one) who was executed under the Nuremberg law for ' Rassenschande," a crime against the pollution of the purity of race: Irene's only offense had been that she told the truth, namely, the denial of any intimate relations with the elderly Jew who the Nazis were eager to liquidate. Other stars to appear on the screen are Montgomery Cliff, also portraying a G e r m a n and another witness against "justice" in The Third Reich, this one sentenced to sterilization for some vague reasons. Burt Lancaster, for a change portraying a "heavy," is Janning, former German Minister of.Justice, and now heading the list of four defendants in the box, which also includes Werner Klemperer (currently portraying Holly- wood's Eichmann) depicting one German judge Otto Hahn, the very same role he created on television. Also repeating his part is Maximiliam Schell (brother of Maria Schell) who appears as a German Defense attorney. Need-i less to say that the culprits plead "not guilty" because "they were told to do it," meaning committing atrocities and genocide. Stanley Kramer is certain that the Germans of today won't like the slant of his picture. Nonetheless, he is deter- mined to take a location crew to Germany later in May to shoot background scenes on the site in Nuremberg in- volving only one of the principals. Among those certain not to go abroad for exteriors of the picture are the stars comprising the American con- tingent such as Spencer Tracy as Chief American Judge Haywood. It was Tracy who most recently scored highly in another Stanley Kramer epic, Inher t the Wind, also representing the juristic profession, in the robe of a character based on famed Defense Attorney Clarence barrow. Last, but not least, Richard Widmark will enact the American Prosecutor in "Judgment at Nuremberg.'! Your JTA Hollywood columnist hopes to attend some of the production in Nuremberg upon returning from a junket to Israel in May. I also may trek to Switzerland where Arthur Brauner of Central Cinema Corporation, Berlin, is preparing his Eichmann picture, entitled "Blut" (Blood), from a scripti[ by Meyer Levin to be recorded in German and English.i] Brauner, himself a former D. P., wants to make it eleartJ that all profits from his film will be given tothe victims!] l of Eichmann. il Norman Israel is the producer. The performances of "Capt. Noah" will take place at the Center, Fourth & Spring, on Sunday afternoons, April 9 and 16 at 1:30 and 4:30 p.m. Tickets are 50c for children and $1.00 for adults. They may be pur- chased from any cast member, at the Center or at the door at performance time. Telephone reservations will be accepted at MA. 4-8431.

This was inter- preted to mean that such Israelis will be able to re-sell through banks at the free rate part or all of such sums to persons traveling abroad who do not have foreign currency accounts. Another change provides that, effective April 1, any person may receive unlimited foreign currency for the import of books and periodicals at a higher ex- change rate. At the present time, only book importers 'receive foreign currency allocations at higher rates for that purpose. Financial experts pointed out that each such step toward liberalization meant the inclu- sion of other categories of foreign currency receipts and foreign currency purchases in brackets higher than the basic exchange rate of $1.80 per dol- lar. Such moves, they added, brought closer the establishment of a single realistic rate of ex- 2hange. Passover Greetings Aronson's Hardware Company ABE ARONSON LEONARD ARONSON R. J.
