    Background: While Miss Carole Lesley - Britain's 'cheesecake' delegate to the Cannes Film Festival - lies in purdah in her hotel apartment at Cannes, suffering from what a local medico diagnoses as an acute case of Festival Fever, 'beefcake' in the persons of Mr. Richard Todd and new rising actor Paul Massey risen to the occasion.

    Cocktails and canapes are dispensed to all comers at the reception held in honour of Orders to Kill, the only British Film entered for the Cannes Film Festival, but noteworthy among the absentees is Miss Jayne Mansfield who in company with her much publicised husband Mickey Hargitay has dealt a body blew to all other three dimensional stars hoping for fame at Cannes.

    This is not Britain's day at Cannes - or so it would seem as the other nations showing their filmic wares queue up to extend the boycott. Even the Russian 'Star' promised for one reception turned out to be nothing but a twinkle.

    Reports of the film Orders to Kill were enthusiastic.
