An inmate at Zurich jail today

Genevas - (Gnomes of Zurich): A lifetime achievement gong trip to the Zurich Film Fistival has ended up with moviemaker legend Roman Polanski behind bars.

A 31 year-old US arrest warrant was brought out of cryogenic stasis to nab the 76 year-old fugitive from American justice.

The Pole's detention ahead of Sunday night's presentation ceremony has dismayed festival sponsors, although not quite enough to help post a reported $5 million bail.

The tiny Alpine dictatorship's residents have long had something of a tight-fisted reputation when it comes to financial largesse.

But tonight's proposed whip-round of the ceremony audience may bring in enough $$$s to pay for an attorney's taxi ride to the Zurich jail where Polanski is being held.

Sharon Tate was once his girlfriend.
