t his? Oh no!

You crazy gals!
E GODS! Things are just falling apart on the truth-and-beauty
front these days as news filters in about those poor, poor Charlie's
Angels. Last week, just as we were.going to press, Sue Ladd, Cheryl Ladd's
mother-in-law, announced that the winsome semi-star and her husband
David had agreed to a separation after a seven year marriage. "I'm sure
they are still in love and are trying to work things out," noted the meddling
All this, of course, after the Farrah and Lee disaster and the recent
dissolution of Shelly Hack's latest affair. Shelley is the newest and least at-
tractive of the rotating stars on the four year old Charlie's Angels teevee
program. She replaced Kate Jackson, whose marriage (sez the National
Enquirer) is also sliding fast. All kind of makes your head swim, doesn't it?
There's more. The New York Daily News reports that the last of the
original stars of the show, Jaclyn Smith, says she hopes to leave the series
next year to seek a career in movies. This would leave her with one year to
go in her contract, but she claims to be frustrated, and, well, what-is a con-
tract in these modern days but your name on apiece of paper?
Aaron Spelling, producer of the show, says of Jaclyn's pnouncement,
"That's the silliest thing I've ever heard." The producer of Charlie's Angels
said that. Don't you love it.
En core appearance
for Elvis Presley?
WHAT WON'T THEY .dig up next, those investigators probing the
mysterious death of Elvis Presley? Well,. it just may be Elvis him-
self. In order to determine the exact nature of the death, Tennessee Attorney
General William Leech announced that his investigators are prepared to
subpoena a heretofore secret autopsy report and/or exhume the body. "We
cannot rule it out," said Leech. "If an investigation points in that direction, it
will be done."
Two years ago, when the King of Rock-n-roll handed in his portfolio, the of-
ficial report was that he died from a heart attack. Recently, news leaked out
that Elvis's personal physician indiscriminately prescribed all sorts of
r'ecreational chemicals, and the suspicion now is that Elvis was awash in all
sorts of drugs at the time of his demise.
Ignorance in these matters oft times being bliss, Elvis's family announced
that it will fight any attempt to put their noted relative in the spotlight once
again. "We ought to let his memory shine and leave this stuff alone," said an
attorney for the Presleys. "Elvis is dead and nothing can bring him back."
Except, perhaps, the Tennessee Attorney General's Office.

LIFE MOVES CONSIDERABLY FASTER out in California, don't you
know, and when youngsters here in the midwest are charging about through
the cornfields and dancing new-fangled dances, youngsters out there are
being trendy and taking all sorts of fun drugs. This smilin' gal here is Carrie,
15, posing with her mom, Carol Burnett, and the current People magazine
tells us all about how Carrie used to use nearly an ounce of marijuana every
day two years ago. How she must have scored and scored, because by sum-
mer of last year, at the age of 14, she was ingesting a fantastic host of phar-
maceuticals including quaaludes, cocaine, and all the rest of those things
Elvis evidently used. "First you take the drug, then the drug takes you,"
reflects quotable Carrie. But her Mom didn't suffer these transgressions
gladly, and last January cut off daughter's $4 weekly allowance."There was
a time when I wished Carrie would have an accident and be in a body cast for
six months," Carol remembers. Eventually this matter worked itself out, as
these things do, and Carrie's stay at a Houston drug treatment clinic proved
successful. The reformed adolescent blames her walks on the wild side on
always being thought of as Carol Burnett's daughter. "I wanted my own
image," she says.

Notes from all over
suffering Tammy Wynette, singer of mournful songs, lost $20,000 in cash, $6,000
in diamonds, and 50 credit cards after burglars ransacked her hotel room in
Princeton, Indiana, last week. Last fall she was abducted by a masked man who
then released her and kept her Cadillac,. and in the interim she's had nasty
phone calls and the other sorts of harassments only visited upon you when you
are really talented and famous.
Bovine Dolly Parton-, meanwhile, was crowned "a native symbol of
America," by the ever-discerning Los Angeles city council.
guitarist for the British rock group, The Who, ripped open his hand while at-
tacking his instrument with that crowd-pleasin' full-arm swing. He left.
the stage fora quick sew up job, and finished the concert at New York's
Madison Square Garden.
Not nearly so good at recovering from accidents, it has taken the group
Lynyrd Skynyrd two years to revive their act. Five members of the group who
survived a Buddy Holly-esque plane crash in 1977 have formed the Rossington-
Collins band, and will record for MCA records.

THE SELLING OF A POPE, 1979 continues this week with more
promotional garbage going on sale all across our fair land. The tee-shirts
'shown here will be pushed on residents of Philadelphia as the head of the
,Catholic church begins his American tour on October 1. The untapped
possibilities for souveniers are legion, including shirts reading "Who in hell
is JOHN PAUL II?" and "My parents saw the pope, and all I got was this
lousy tee shirt."' But in other parts of the country, plans proceed apace for
papal welcomings. Since a lot of ill people try to crowd near such a figure as
the pope, Boston city hospitals are making elaborate plans to cope with an
expected 50 per cent increase in heart attacks and medical emergencies. In'
arefreshing change of pace from all of this carrying-on, CBS and NBC both
announced that they would refuse to interrupt regularly scheduled pro foot-
ball games to broadcast a Sunday afternoon Mass from Washington D.C.
Since CBS lost $1 million in commercial revenues by broadcasting the
inauguration of John Paul I-the current pontiff's predecessor-they have
chosen instead to offer viewers "highlights" of the Mass at halftime during
one of Sunday's games. A feeling of unease sweeps marching band fans


AW, GEE, TENNESSEE, you old rake. This is playwright Tennessee
Williams pawing actress Maureen Stapleton while bemused actress Irene
Worth looks on. They were all together in New York at a party pushing
somebody's new book and having just another wild, wonderful evening,
like they always do.

Kenji Mizoguchi's


Two peasants leave their wives in war-torn feudal Japan-one dreaming of
martial glory, the other of riches. Dreamily poetic images throughout, espe-
cially the sequences of the succubus with her alluring gestures and seductive
dress and music. The title in English-"Tales of a Pale and Mysterious Moon
After the Rain." With MACHIKO KYO and MASAZUKI MORI.
