The Gold Rush
For 30 years the price of gold remained fixed at 35 dollars an ounce. Most of the world's gold seemed to be safely locked away in Fort Knox, and in many countries private citizens were forbidden to buy or sell gold. Now, gold is fetching more than 100 dollars an ounce, and gold mine shares are booming. Why is gold still so important, and what does it mean for the rest of us? DAVID TAYLOR reports from the South African goldfields, and BRIAN WIDLAKE examines the international gold market. With PAUL GRIFFITHS and ROBERT MCKENZIE

Fernandel with Gino Cervi
Sylvie and Manara
In a small village in the Po Valley a permanent state of feud exists between the parish priest Don Camillo and the Communist mayor Peppone.
This screen version of Guareschi's famous satire is beautifully handled by Duvivier, and Fernandel, in a part that might have been created for him, gives one of his most richly comic performances as the indomitable country priest, Don Camillo.
They fight their battles in the cause of the betterment of the Northern Italian community and Camillo comforts himself in his frequent times of crisis with intimate little conversations with the Almighty.
Director JULIEN DUVIVIER
