Page 2 The Salina Journal Sunflower Sunday. November 15.1981 TattletoJes Write RflUn Adam* Sou, King Features, 235 E. 45th St., New York, N.Y., 10017 Joining the list of actors who produce their own movies is Sally Field, who is set to do "Shower, " a comedy about four women reunited at a wedding shower. Sally will take both star and executive producer billing. Cloris Leachman is perturbed. The Academy and Emmy Award-winning actress did a movie called "Dear Lone- lyhearts" that was supposed to be a pilot for a series. The movie has yet to air, but Cloris is convinced that the role of an advice to the lovelorn columnist is perfect for her. Cloris Leachman That adorable chad actor Justin Henry, of "Kramer vs. Kramer" fame, has been replaced in toe movie version of "The World According to Garp" and the big question is — why? Nobody's talking, but a source close to the production let slip that when the producers looked at the first five days of shooting they found the 10- year-old's performance not up to expectations. Justin's been replaced by another child actor. Justin Henry Brooke Shields I'm puzzled by the discrepancy between the two images of Brooke Shields. One one hand, she's the knowing teenage sexpot; on the other, an untainted child. Which is the real Brooke ? — P.Y. That isn't a simple question because she plays both parts so convincingly — and each is for real. Of course, Brooke Shields is far more sophisticated than most of her contemporaries, but then, she exhibits a girlish naivete which can be quite surprising. For example, the personal stationery she still favors features a chorus line of dancing bears wearing top hats. Sweet, but far more appropriate to an unworldly kid than to the lushly ripening screen siren which Brooke has so surely become. John Huston is a great director, but why would they choose someone famous for making tough movies Uke "The Maltese Falcon" and "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" to direct a whimsical musical about orphans Uke "Annie?" — S.M. Although the choice might appear to be a strange one at first, producer Ray Stark, who's worked with John before, felt Huston's hard-edge style would bring a certain grittiness to the charming Depression-era fable. John Huston Julian Lennon What has become of John Lemon's older son by his first marriage? I remember he was in New York for a while with Lemon's widow, Yoko Ono. -C.K. John Charles Julian Lennon, son of the late Beatle by his first wife, Cynthia Powell, is one of the most popular boys in London these days. The 18-year-old Julian, as he's more familiarly known, is reported to have inherited around 924 million from his father and aeons to be spending it as fast as he can on lavish dinners and in nightclubs. Is there bad blood between Nancy Reagan and President Reagan's first wife, Jane Wyman? I heard that was true and I've never seen a photograph of them together. - N.C. You're quite right. Nancy and Jane do not speak to each other and Nancy will not be photographed with her husband's former wife. Furthermore, she doesn't even Uke to see pictures of Reagan with Miss Wyman. That's not unusual in remarriages, though. It reminds us of Richard Burton's current wife Susan demanding that all photographs of Burton with Elizabeth Taylor be removed from the playbill when he was touring in "Camelot." Jane Wyman Susan Saint James Susan Saint James seems too lovely a name to be true. Am I right? — T.B. The smoky-voiced star was originally known as Susie Jane Miller, admittedly not a name to set marquees on fire. She adopted her new name while modeling in Paris, because it seemed to generate more pizzazz. Susan explains, "I wanted a name with Saint- anything in it, figuring my chances of getting into Heaven would be greater!" The reason she spelled out Saint James is that she's adamant about avoiding abbreviations in any shape or form. Seams as if the idea has paid off. According to the ever-intrepid British tabloids that talented and temperamental superstar Faye Dunaway is trying for a second baby with her boyfriend, British photographer Terry O'Neill. The couple already has a 16-month-old son called Liam, and the Oscar-winning Faye is quoted as saying, "I've always wanted children, but in the past my relationships were too complicated, I've still got a few years left for children and we both love the name Claire for a girl." Faye Dunaway Robert Stack We were surprised to hear that Robert Stack is opposed to his young daughter taking up an acting career. Why? — U.N. Stack, who returns to TV via ABC's "Strike Force" series, wasn't especially eager to see his 24-year-old daughter Elizabeth take up acting. But he says he wouldn't dream of resisting once he saw how determined she is. Her roofer, one-time starlet Roeemarie Bowe and one of Hollywood's mo* visible stylesetters, was a bit more encouraging. Whatever, Elizabeth now calls New York home owe where she's busy appearing on aoap operas and in stage plays. Elizabeth recently completed one off-off-Broadway play in which she and the actor playing her boyfriend were called upon to turn into trees. ^^
