Wilmington left out the two most honest films on the subject ever to come from Hollywood. "Ulzana's Raid," directed by Robert Aldrich and "Jeremiah Johnson," directed by Sidney Pollack. Paradoxically, in these classical Westerns, Burt Lancaster and Robert Redford, respectively, confronted two of the most formidable Indians ever to ride the screen.

No one in the two-story apartment complex about 1 1/2 miles west of Santa Monica Airport was injured, but two Santa Monica police officers who rescued the surviving passenger, and a resident who helped them, were treated for smoke inhalation.

Woody Allen, Ginger Rogers, Sidney Pollack and Milos Forman said today it is sinful and immoral to turn old black and white movies into color without permission.
