Sylwester Chęciński in the maze of film production decisions about the Szare Szeregi

  1. Jakub Zajdel ORCiD:


The author describes press reports on the preparations of Sylwester Chęciński for the film about scouts from Szare Szeregi. The scenario was based on a bestseller written by Aleksander Kamiński entitled Kamienie na szaniec (Stones for the earthwork). Although the press assured that Sylwester Chęciński had already started working, the film was produced only eight years later, and the director was Jan Łomnicki. An interesting topic of these considerations are personal relationships. Andrzej Wajda was working on the screenplay for Kaminski’s book with Valentin Jeżow. In turn, the movie Agnieszka 46, directed by Sylwester Chęciński, was severely attacked by Zbigniew Załuski. Valentin Jeżow and Zbigniew Załuski became screenwriters for the film Legenda (Legend) directed by Sylwester Chęciński. It is not clear from the press notes whether Sylwester Chęciński stopped the preparations for the film about the Szare Szeregi for this cooperation or was forced to abandon them for the Polish-Soviet co-production.
