    THE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL HAD ITS USUAL GLITTERING START IN CANNES MAY 7 AS A GALAXY OF FILM PERSONALITIES ARRIVED FOR THE SHOWING OF ITALY'S "BOCCACCIO 70"; ONE OF MANY ENTRIES COMPETING FOR THE GOLD PALM LEAF - A VALUABLE PRIZE OF THE CINEMA.

    AMONG THE MANY CELEBRATED ARRIVALS SEEN WERE 'OSCAR'-WINNER SOPHIA LOREN, WHO STARS IN THE FILM, KIRK DOUGLAS AND KURT JURGENS.

    "BOCCACCIO 70" HAS FOUR OF THE FAMOUS TALES RETOLD BY DIFFERENT DIRECTORS: DE SICA, FELLINI, VISCONTI AND MONICELLI. BUT AS THE FILM WAS OVERLONG - IT RAN FOR FOUR HOURS - IT WAS DECIDED, AT THE LAST MOMENT, TO CUT THE SECTION DIRECTED BY MONICELLI.

    DIRECTOR MONICELLI WAS SAID TO BE "VERY ANGRY" OVER THE DECISION AND TO BE IN "DEEP CONSULTATION" WITH A LAWYER.
