    Background: INTRODUCTION: One of the highlights of the film industry's year -- the Cannes International Film Festival --is being held in France with all its customary glitter and adulation. Nothing seems to change except the new films chosen each year to represent the best in the world of the cinema.

    SYNOPSIS: The beach at Cannes offers a selection of aspiring film stars displaying virtues. Or one may choose to catch up on the latest in French fashions. Professionals in the industry can be found soaking up the sun when they're not viewing or promoting a film.

    French enthusiasm for American films at the festival has always seemed inexhaustible, with a fierce struggle for seats at any Hollywood production. The first U.S. exhibit in Cannes was "The Postman Always Rings Twice", starring Jack Nicholson and Jessica Lange. Their presence dominated the interest of the crowds of film fans and the film, directed by Bob Rafelson, is strongly favoured to win the coveted Golden Palm award.
