The fourth of five films in celebration of the legendary actress's 80th birthday with Charles Boyer For Countess
Walewska and other patriotic Poles, Napoleon was their possible saviour from the Cossacks. But when the Emperor visits Poland he is more inclined to pursue the beautiful Countess than the warring Cossacks. Her fellow nobles urge Marie to make
'the supreme sacrifice' to save her country. Thus begins one of history's great love stories.
Screenplay by SAMUEL HOFFENSTEIN , SALKA VIERTEL and S.N. BEHRMAN Based on the novel Pani Walewska by WACLAW GASlOROWSKI and a dramatisation by HELEN JEROME Produced by BERNARD H. HYMAN Directed by CLARENCE BROWN

Our sense of humour baffles them, our politics bother them, our preoccupation with tradition bemuses them.
Apparently, we don't wash, and we are morose and miserable even on holiday. On the other hand, we are polite, and kind to animals. Each week, Derek Jameson looks at the way foreign TV reports this country.
Tonight he looks at reports on sex, food and fashion in Britain and discovers that
'continental men have sex lives - Englishmen have hot water bottles'.

John Savage and Willie Nelson
This award-winning movie is based on the incredible true story of teenager Victor Herman who visited Russia with his parents in 1931. As a fine athlete Victor was persuaded to stay in the Soviet Union to take up training opportunities he would not have in his native Detroit. It was 36 years before he was allowed to return home - and 18 of those years were spent in Siberian labour camps. This is the story of his experiences....
Screenplay by Alan Sharp
From the book by Victor Herman Produced by Christopher Pearce Directed by Warris Hussein
