By lEONARD KLIE .......... Catholic News Service BRANFORD, Conn. (CNS) Catholic attorney Walter Bansley was surprised when a trial he once argued became the basis for a Hollywood mo- tion picture. Bansley was a special pros- ecutor for the U.S. Marine Corps when he participated in the case that provided the plot for "A:" Few Good Men," recently nominated for an Oscar as best picture. In 1986, Bansley was sent to the Guantanamo Bay Naval Air Station in Cuba to defend Marine Lt. William Adams, who allegedly ordered several men in his platoon to perform a disciplinary "code red" on a private who reportedly shirked duties and leaked in- formation about a potentially volatile international inci- dent. The private almost died after being assaulted by 10 Marines. During the case, which was later dismissed on other grounds, Bansley ar- gued that Adams could not be blamed for the attack because the men were acting on im- plied, not direct, orders. Bansley said he does not consider this case the most 'Howard's End,' 'Lorenzo's Oil' win Awards NEW YORK (CNS) "Howards End" and "Lorenzo's Oil" are among the movies named to receive 1903 Christopher Awards. The Christopher Awards are given annually to honor producers, directors, writers and illustrators whose work exemplifies "the highest val- ues of the human spirit," ac- cording to the New York- based Christophers. Father John Catoir, director of The Christophers, in an an- nouncement of this year's awards, praised the winners for using "their creativity and God-given talents to educate and enlighten audiences as well as entertain them." Four movies, seven televi- sion specials, 10 hooks and two outstanding individual achievement awards were to be recognized at an award ceremony Feb. 25 in New York. Winners receive bronze medallions. "Howard's End," which has been nominated for an Oscar for best picture, is based on E.M. Forester's novel of class divisions and human bonds. "Lorenzo's Oil" is the story of a mother and father who, through perseverance, help find a treatment for their son diagnosed with a rare and ul- timately fatal disease. Also to be awarded are "Enchanted April," which deals with friendships and the rediscovery of marital love, and a film based on the hit Broadway musical on South African apartheid, "Sarafina!" In the television category, NBC won three awards in- cluding one for "Sister Thea: Her Own Story," a documen- tary on Franciscan Sister Thea Bowman who worked for the rights of women and African- Americans until her death from cancer in 1990. Other NBC award-winning programs included "A Town Torn Apart" and "Jonathan: The Boy Nobody Wanted." CBS won two awards for "Miles from Nowhere" and "Against Her Will: An Inci- dent in Baltimore." ABC won for "The Broken Cord" and the Independent Network won an award for "Father/Son." Book authors honored in- clude Marian Wright Edel- man, for "The Measure of Our Success: A Letter to My Chil- dren and Yours," and Eric Silver, for "The Book of the Just: The Unsung Heroes who Rescued the Jews from Hitler." Dr. Vincent Fontana, medi- cal director and chief pedia- trician of the New York Foundling Hospital, is to re- ceive the James Keller Youth Award for 30 years of com- mitment to children and for his pioneering efforts in the advocacy of child abuse pre- vention. Named for the founder of The Christophers, the award is given to individuals who have made a significant con- tribution to the well-being of young people. The Christophers are also honoring Robert Schwartz, president, CEO and chairman of the board of the Metropoli- tan Life Insurance Company, with a Life Achievement Award for his corporate lead- ership and community ser- vice. Father Catoir said he hopes the awards remind the recipi- ents "to keep striving for ex- cellence" because "the world needs their best efforts." exciting of his career. "I must state candidly that my recent notoriety embarrasses me," he said. "I would prefer to be known for other accomplish- ments, but Hollywood has sealed my fate, at least for the time being." Actor Tom Cruise plays a character based loosely on Bansley in "A Few Good Men." Bansley said Cruise's portrayal of himself bore some surprising similarities. A high school athlete, Bansley said he often met with other trial lawyers on the softball field and basket- ball court like the Cruise character did in the movie. He also commented on Cruise's partiality for Yoo- Hoe chocolate drink in the movie.
