Jewish game-show host CHUCK
BARRIS insisted on one script
change in GEORGE CLOONEY's
movie adaptation of Barris' best-
selling autobiography in which he
claims to have been a CIA assassin.
Barris insists he's thrilled with

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,

Clooney's directorial debut which
opens in Detroit on Jan. 24, and
he's relieved the movie hunk lis-
tened to him when he asked for the
minor modification.
He says, "They had me into
drugs in the script, and I was never
a druggie.
"My daughter died of a drug
overdose, so I asked for that to be
taken out."

In more spy news, legendary funny-
man HARPO MARX also is alleged
to have led an extraordinary double
life — he was an American secret
agent at the same time as being a
top Hollywood star.
Papers released by the U.S. govern-
ment reveal the Marx brother smug-
gled secrets out of the Soviet Union
while on tour there in the 1930s.
Marx was inducted into the shad-
owy world of espionage after he was
personally invited to the Communist
state in 1933 by dictator JOSEPH

STALIN.
FBI director J. EDGAR HOOVER
was so pleased with Harpo's services to
his country, which involved smug-
gling sensitive documents in his socks,
that he sent him a letter in 1949
thanking the comic for his "loyal past
services to the country"

LEONARDO DiCAPRIO made
his mom's dreams come true on the
set of his new film Catch Me If You
Can by introducing her to BAR-
BRA STREISAND.
The actor's mother was on the set
when Streisand paid a visit to see her
husband JAMES BROLIN, who
also stars — and DiCaprio decided
to make her day.
He says, "Mom loves photo
opportunities so I had to go up to
Babs and ask her if she'd pose with
my mom. You have to do those
things for your mom."
