THE CEREMONIAL MAN
Colonel Eric Hefford. C.B.E., D.S.O. retired from twenty-four years of army life, looked around him at the crumbling British Empire and stepped deftly on to the band-wagon
He set up shop selling Independence Celebrations to any new nation wnich cared to call, and eight have so far obliged. Prime Ministers are awed by the pomp and precision he can bring to chaotic rehearsals of Governors and Field-Marshals and thousands of flag-waving children. Always they recommend him to other newly emerging countries. Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Jamaica, Malta, Guyana, Barbados have been through it all with the Colonel. This time it was the turn of Mauritius. producer, ADAM CLAPHAM

A film by HENRI-GEORGES CLOUZOT with PABLO PICASSO
This film is possibly the most famous art film made since the v war. At one point the director speeded up his cameras so the work of five hours is compressed into a few minutes, and a painting literally grows before our eyes. In another exciting sequence Picasso completes a picture just before the film magazine runs out.
The film ranges over the various styles adopted by Picasso during his career, and if ever the creativity of an artist was caught by cameras in the very act, this is the film in which it was done.
