Enjoy JACESOMILE’S BEACHES | < > _ OUB FILM FOLK BY LEON GUTTERMAN (Copyright, 1950, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.) HOLLYWOOD The story of Samson, the Dan ite judge and shepherd, is famil iar to the folklore, music and art of peoples of every land. Na tions have always had their sym bol of strength . . . one man in whom destiny fused strength and weakness, wisdom and folly. “I tell the story of such a man in ‘Samson and Delilah,’ says famed producer - director Cecil B. DeMille. “Samson, who lived 3,000 years ago, was a judge of the Jewish people and in his soul was a dream. The dream of free dom . . . freedom for his people who had been in bondage to the Philistines for forty years.” In bringing the Samson epi sodes to the screen DeMille says he knew he was dramatizing a story that has been a best seller for 3,000 years. “For what book,” asks DeMille, “has sold more copies than the Bible, or has more profoundly influenced the lives of the people?” According to the motion picture Por Bumper to Bumper Serice Reynolds Pure Oil Seaside Service Station New Beach Bivd. and Ist Street PHONE 9180 JACKSONVILLE BEACH, FLA.

They are set against a background of conflict between two civilizations and embittered by the forces of ty ranny. Here is a story of the strongest man on earth destroyed by a woman, a dark-eyed ball of fire named Delilah. “The project is one that has been in my mind with varying intensity since 1932,” explains De t Mille. “But always, ever since my father read it to us in the course of his nightly readings from the scripture I have been fascinated by the immense pow er, humanity and beauty which I felt coursed through the Samson story like a vein of lighted pow der.” In 1932 novelist Harold Lamb wrote the treatment for DeMille which formed the basis for his screen play. All during those months of preparation one vital fact was kept in mind: the Bible must not be changed in any par ticular. It wasn’t.
