Various of pro-Polanski protestors outside film festival STORYLINE Acclaimed film director Roman Polanski was in his third day of detention after Swiss police arrested him Saturday on an international warrant as he arrived in Zurich to receive a lifetime achievement award from a film festival. Authorities in Los Angeles consider Polanski a "convicted felon and fugitive." The director had pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse in 1977 with a 13-year-old girl. He was sent to prison for 42 days but then the judge tried to renege on the plea bargain. On the day of his sentencing in 1978, aware the judge would sentence him to more prison time, Polanski fled to France. He hasn't set foot on U.S. soil in 31 years, and he's avoided countries that might extradite him. He won an Oscar for The Pianist in 2003, and he had actor Harrison Ford collect it for him. "He fled this jurisdiction to avoid sentencing," said Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley. "It took this long because he was a fugitive. Well, now he's no longer a fugitive," Cooley added. Now, Polanski is in a Swiss jail awaiting an extradition hearing. Polanski was interviewed by ABC News in 1994: "I think at that time I had a hard time to persuade myself that it was wrong, because I don't think anybody was hurt," Polanski said at the time, adding, "Later on I realised, you know, it's just, you know, I was too close to the forest to see the trees." Polanski learned his trade in Poland and earned global acclaim with his first Hollywood feature, "Rosemary's Baby," released in 1968. The following year his actress wife, Sharon Tate and their unborn son were murdered by followers of Charles Manson. The film "Chinatown" followed in 1974 and then three years later, the unlawful sexual intercourse with 13-year old Samantha Geimer (GUY-MER) during a photo shoot. "He asked me to, like, change and change in front of him and stuff. It didn't feel right," Geimer said during a recent interview. Geimer, now in her 40s, said she has forgiven Polanski and dropped her charges against him. "If he could, I'm sure he'd go back and he wouldn't do it again," Geimer said in the interview. There have been strong shows of support from the film industry and even from the French government, who've rallied around the Oscar-winning director. Polanski's lawyers say they will put up a fight to prevent him being extradited back to the US. An international tug-of-war over the 76-year-old director escalated Monday as France and Poland urged Switzerland to free him on bail and pressed U.S. officials all the way up to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the case.

Roman Polanski, Film Director leaving fashion show UPSOUND: voice over STORYLINE: Director Roman Polanski was arrested by Swiss police when he arrived in Zurich and the Oscar winner now faces possible extradition to the United States for having sex in 1977 with a 13-year-old girl, authorities said on Sunday. Polanski was due to receive an honorary award at the Zurich Film Festival, when he was apprehended Saturday at the airport, the Swiss Justice Ministry said in a statement. It said US authorities have sought the arrest of the 76-year-old director around the world since 2005. Polanski fled the US in 1978, a year after pleading guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with the underaged girl. The director of such classic films as "Chinatown" and "Rosemary's Baby" has asked a US appeals court in California to overturn a judges' refusal to throw out his case. He claims misconduct by the now-deceased judge who had arranged a plea bargain and then reneged on it. The Swiss statement said Polanski was in "provisional detention for extradition," but added he would not be transferred to US authorities until all proceedings are completed. Polanski can contest his detention and any extradition decision in the Swiss courts, it said. Polanski has lived for the past three decades in France, where his career has continued to flourish, and he received a directing Oscar in absentia for the 2002 movie "The Pianist". Polanski has not been extradited from France because his crime reportedly was not covered under treaties between the United States and France. He has avoided travelling to countries likely to extradite him. For instance, he testified by video link from Paris in a 2005 libel trial in London against Vanity Fair magazine because he did not want to enter Britain for fear of being arrested. In Paris, Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand said he was "dumbfounded" by Polanski's arrest, adding that he "strongly regrets that a new ordeal is being inflicted on someone who has already experienced so many of them". Those comments referred to the fact that Polanski, a native of France who was taken to Poland by his parents, escaped Krakow's Jewish ghetto as a child and lived off the charity of strangers. His mother died at the Auschwitz Nazi death camp. Polanski worked his way into filmmaking in Poland, gaining an Oscar nomination for best foreign-language film in 1964 for his "Knife in the Water". Offered entry to Hollywood, he directed the classic "Rosemary's Baby" in 1968. But his life was shattered again in 1969 when his wife, actress Sharon Tate, and four other people were gruesomely murdered by followers of Charles Manson. Sharon Tate was eight months pregnant at the time. Polanski went on to make another American classic, "Chinatown", which was released in 1974. In 1977, he was accused of raping the teenager while photographing her during a modelling session. The girl said Polanski plied her with champagne and part of a Quaalude pill at Jack Nicholson's house while the actor was away. She said that, despite her protests, he performed oral sex, intercourse and sodomy on her. Polanski was allowed to plead guilty to one of six charges, unlawful sexual intercourse, and was sent to prison for 42 days of evaluation. Lawyers agreed that would be his full sentence, but the judge tried to renege on the plea bargain. Aware the judge would sentence him to more prison time and require his voluntary deportation, Polanski fled to France. The victim, Samantha Geimer, who long ago identified herself publicly, has joined in Polanski's bid for dismissal, saying she wants the case to be over. She sued Polanski and reached an undisclosed settlement. Zurich Film Festival organisers said on Sunday that Polanski's detention had caused "shock and dismay," but said they would go ahead with Sunday's planned retrospective of the director's work. Otto Weisser, a friend of Polanski told reporters "I am ashamed to be Swiss, that Swiss is doing such a thing to brilliant fantastic genius. That million and million people love his work, he's a brilliant guy and he made a little mistake 20 years ago." "What a shame for Switzerland", he said.

FIRST LADY OF FASHION HONORED BY THE CFDA Michelle Obama keeps feeling the love from the fashion world. She was honoured with a special tribute from the Council of Fashion Designers of America board of directors for her contributions to the world of fashion. Although she was missing from the crowd at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts on Monday (15 JUNE 2009), Obama's presence was felt throughout the star-studded ceremony, which included Heidi Klum, Blake Lively and Kirsten Dunst. Klum said that Mrs. Obama's style has revolutionised political fashion: "I think it shows that beauty and brains can also have a lot of style. And that not just a lot of women who are in politics have to wear dark blues and grays and dark greens and it's all a bit sad. I think that she put a lot of colour into politics and I think that a lot of women admire her for her beauty, for her brains, but also because she has a lot of style." Designer Michael Kors has had the honour of dressing the first lady. "I think she likes playing around with clothes, expressing herself," said Kors" I think she knows that fashion's a big part of expressing yourself. And it doesn't mean that you're any less intelligent or brilliant because she's all of that." The evening's host, Tracey Ullman, poked fun at Mrs. Obama's preppy looks: "She looks fabulous in most things and I love when she met the queen in a cardigan. That killed me." Designer Anna Sui was also celebrated on Monday with a lifetime achievement award. She says Mrs. Obama caused a shift in trends. "I think she's made it more egalitarian and I think that's good," said Sui. "We were going the wrong way. It was just getting too luxe and too extreme. And now there's a whole new style and it looks so fresh." Three designers that Mrs. Obama has been known to wear - Narciso Rodriguez, Jason Wu and Thakoon Panichgul - also received CFDA nominations. "I think Michelle Obama has really transformed how America looks at fashion," said Wu. "And it's been really great that she's being honoured tonight and as a young designer I'm just so thrilled that we have a first lady that has such great taste." 'Top Chef' host Padma Lakshmi commended Mrs. Obama fearlessness: "The fact that she's not a twig. The fact that she has curves. The fact that she loves to wear bold colour and is not afraid of fashion and really seems to enjoy fashion while retaining her own identity is I think really, really applaud-able." Obama accepted her award via a pre-taped video speech. Wearing a crisp white button-down shirt and two strands of pearls, she spoke of fashion as an American "art form" with "ingenuity and craftsmanship that contribute so much to our economy and culture." "Designers from Levi Strauss to the reigning 7th Avenue giants have had a global influence, exporting not just fashion, but the American spirit as well," she said. "I want to thank you all for making fashion liberating, inspiring and most of all fun." The evening's other big winners included newcomers Rodarte, Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Keith Christiansen, Curator Department of European paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art: "To tell you the truth there, a detail in the picture that immediately convinced me and it may seem like an incidental detail but it is precisely because it was so incidental, excuse me if I make my point (walks over to point to painting) along the edge of the rocks here, there's dense cross hatching, almost awkwardly dense cross hatching. When I looked and I thought that this is exactly what we find in Michelangelo's earliest pen drawings, this precise kind of hatching, nobody but Michelangelo does this. And then as you look to the face of Saint Anthony to the hands and so forth, all of these remind me of aspects of his earliest sculptures from 1490-92.

Wide of man looking at Michelangelo's 'Torment of Saint Anthony' MICHELANGELO'S TEENAGE TORMENT An exhibit showing what is believed to be Michelangelo Buonarroti's first painting marked the start of a summer-long exhibition at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art on Tuesday. Michelangelo known for his sculptures and drawings was an accomplished painter before ever learning to carve marble. He studied in Florence during his youth and it is during this time the work on display 'Torment of Saint Anthony' comes. The work is a copy of a well-known engraving of the time named 'Saint Anthony Tormented by Demons' by Martin Schongauer (1448-1491.) Experts believe Michelangelo was 12 or 13-years-old when he made it. The two works hang side by side at the exhibition for comparison. Keith Christiansen curator for the department of European paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art says he believes the painting is Michelangelo's first because of the "almost awkwardly dense cross hatching". "When I looked and I thought that this is exactly what we find in Michelangelo's earliest pen drawings, this precise kind of hatching, no body but Michelangelo does this," Christiansen said. The Met will show 'Torment of Saint Anthony' until early September. APTN (Copyright 2009 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

Performance Saxon 'Battalions of Steel' METAL HAMMER AWARDS HONOUR THOSE WHO ROCK Rockers including Saxon, Antrhax and Anvil gathered in London Monday (15 JUNE 2009), for the seventh Metal Hammer Golden God awards. Guitar virtuoso Steve Vai made a special appearance at the Indigo2 venue to collect the 'Riff Lord' award. On the red carpet, the Grammy award winner had advice for newcomers to the rock scene. "Well there's a lot of distractions in the music business and there can be a lot of distractions in life," Vai said, "but if you love the guitar than everything else is gravy. Nothing else is as important as you're relationship with your guitar." In addition to the award show, thrash metal icons Anthrax played a rare intimate show for 500 fans, as part of three hours of live music on gig-boat stage HMS Anthrax. Widely considered pioneers of the genre, Anthrax say for them, it's all about the music. "We didn't know we were pioneers until about a month ago." insisted rhythm guitarist Scott Ian, "You can only realise you're a pioneer until about 20 years later when people tell you you're a pioneer." "When we were doing that stuff it was just because we love music so we never really thought about it at the time," he continued. Enjoying a new surge of success thanks to big screen documentary 'Anvil! The Story of Anvil', Anvil picked up the 'Metal as F**k' award. Steve "Lips" Kudlow from the band was delighted to accept it, despite their years of obscurity before the film: "It's not even a question of overdue or not overdue or expected or unexpected, it's just the whole thing is a miraculous turn of events that is unbelievable and I am...I couldn't be at a better place in my life and at a better age to appreciate it with full open heart. It's just amazing." Anvil also played live at the ceremony. The night's big winners included Iron Maiden, honoured as 'Golden Gods', and given the title 'Best UK Band' for the second year in a row. Slipknot won 'Best International Band' and 'Best Live Band'; Def Leppard were named 'Legends'. Saxon picked up the 'Spirit of Hammer' award - the group's Bill Byford explained why: "They're telling me that it's for being together for 30 years. That's what it's about, so that's cool." Lamb of God won 'Best Album' for 'Wrath', while Marilyn Manson was honoured with the 'Icon Award'. Marilyn Manson, Def Leppard and Slipknot did not attend.
