here are some actors
whose egos necessitate'
a wide-angle lens.
Then there are actors like
Michael Lembeck.
Of course, Lembeck works
hard at keeping 'in focus. He
has to in a business where life
can be a blur of bluster.
But then, Lembeck has
always had a positive frame of
reference. His .dad, the late
Harvey Lembeck, was one of
the business's more respected
comedic actors, a down-to-
earth player with larger-than-
life talents.
Larger than life . . . In a
business of blow-ups, where
actors storm off sets if
theiregos haven't been strok-
ed with silk, where prima
donnas prime for publicity
with forced smiles and
platitudes, Lembeck is a
startling reminder that all
that shines can be gold.
Lembeck has , starred
recently in the title role of
"Mike," a pre-Broadway
musical about the late legen-

show business impresario
'Mike lbdd.

"I cut my teeth on theater,"
smiles Lembeck, 39, who 15
years' ago graced the stage
along with John Travolta in
the musical "Grease" and has
appeared in New York produc-

and "Angry Housewives!'
Anger seems a misplaced
emotion with this actor,
perhaps best known as the
amiable Max Horvath on
television's long-running
"One Day at a Time!"
There were times when
"One Day at a Tillie" needed
as much patience on the part
of the actors as its title sug-
gested. Those were the days
when star Mackenzie Phillips
had a much publicized drug
problem.
"That experience taught
me patience," says Lembeck.
"You learn a lot when work-
ing with an addicted person."
Not all addictions are pain-
ful. Lembeck has been hook-
ed on show business for so
long, he can't remember the
time when "five minutes"
meant anything but "curtain
about to go up.'
"I have a particular love for
performers in the theater,"
says Lembeck. "There's
