Denis Tuohy talks to William Ross

William Ross was born in Wolverhampton at the turn of the century. As a young man he emigrated to the United States where he worked as a naval architect until his retirement. For more than 50 years the main driving force in his life has been Theosophy, a system which seeks after spiritual truth but which values the search itself more highly than any particular religious conclusion.

This week: The Biggest Crap Game in the World

"It's the biggest crap game in the world. Millions of dollars are contingent on the right or wrong decision." - Louis Deke Hayward, European Manager, American Independent Pictures

Movie men talk about the Cannes Film Festival. Time was when the Festival was a prestigious showcase for the world's best films. Now, 25 years on, it is almost irrelevant. Today Cannes is the place people go to wheel and deal. At this year's Festival John Pitman and a Man Alive team follow the fortunes and misfortunes of a young girl producer; two men - one English, one American - who spent £200,000 of their own money on a feature film; and the men, with millions to play with, who could make or break them.

Stars like Peter O'Toole, Gina Lollobrigida and Princess Grace still came and the Festival itself went on somewhere in the background. But money - big money - is really what it's all about.
