This is the story of the evolution of a primitive machine-two wheels and an engine-into a gleaming, glamorous, sophisticated piece of engineering. And the driving force was speed-the winning machines sold. That was how the Japanese industry conquered the motorcycle world-but can the Europeans make a comeback? Narrator TONY BRITTON

A new series of recent and distinguished foreign films opens with a richly-photographed and compelling Cuban film, an award winner at Chicago and Biarritz film festivals.
A rich plantation owner decides to demonstrate his spiritual grace and his concern for his slaves by inviting 12 of them to dinner on the eve of Holy Week. Unfortunately, by the end of the meal he is too drunk to inform his brutal overseer of the holiday he has promised them. The slaves revolt and as the violence escalates, the plantation owner's religion and paternalism evaporate.

This vividly portrayed story of New York in the 1930s tells the dramatic life stories of five of the millions of inhabitants of the Great City. Most especially, of Danny Kenny , a newsboy who becomes a champion boxer-knowing that the likely result is tragedy. Also involved in his struggle for fame and fortune are his girlfriend Peggy, his composer brother, a dancer-Murray Burns - and Googi, a gangster who tries to dominate and corrupt Danny. The result is a typical atmospheric Warner Brothers movie.
