Page 2 The Sallna Journal Sunflower Sunday, November 22,1981 Tattletales Write Robin Adams Skua, King Features, 235 E. 45th St, New York, N.Y., 10017 Robert De Niro's already shelled out a mammoth $2 million rebuilding an apartment in New York City, Robert De Niro Sometimes life imitates art. Daryl Anderson, who plays Animal, the Trib's photographer on "Lou Grant," has become an active amateur photographer on his own. Recently, Daryl was driving by a fire near his L.A. home and snapped some shots. The Associated Press bought one of them for $50, marking Daryl's professional debut. Daryl Anderson Is it true that actress Michelle Phillips is pregnant by Warren Beatty and she's set on getting out of movies to become a domesticated mother? -M.N. Michelle, who already has an 11-year-old daughter, plans to be a mother, but not an especially domesticated one or one who's out of the Hollywood picture. As I told you a while ago, she and her current boyfriend, Hollywood actor Grainger Hines, expect their firstborn in February. Warren Beatty, Michelle's boyfriend of some years past, is in no way involved. Michelle Phillips Klinton Spilsbury Whatever became of Klinton Spilsbury, the young actor who recently played the Lone Ranger in the movies? Was Ms performance so bad that he can't get another role? — L.L. Hollywood producers have one overriding consideration about actors — how they deliver at the boxoffice. Spilsbury in "The Legend of the Lone Ranger" didn't. His performance in the title role wasn't all that bad. But masked man fans were turned off because the producers hassled Clayton Moore. Anyway, Spilsbury hasn't ridden into the sunset. We hear he's all set for a part in Bo Derek's new movie. A couple of years ago Christine Lahti starred opposite Al Pacino in "And Justice for All," but I haven't seen much of her since. Is it because she's so tall and today's short leading men don't want her towering over them on screen? — J.A. Miss Lahti's absence from the screen is not due to her almost 6-foot height, but to her taking only those parts that appeal to her — often on stage. Her next film role will be opposite Richard Dreyfuss in "Whose Life Is It Anyway?" and although she's taller than he is, you won't be able to tell. Dreyfuss plays a paraplegic confined to a hospital bed. Christine Lahti Henry Fonda Isn't Henry Fonda going to get the "Mommie Dearest" treatment given Joan Crawford in a new biography of the great actor? Doesn't the book tell what a terrible father he was? — L.N. Not necessarily. Fonda was not the greatest father in the world to his children, particularly his most famous offspring, Jane and Peter. He was emotionally aloof, rarely showing affection and given to long silences alternating with explosive temper tantrums. All this is detailed in "Fonda: My Life," by author Howard Teichmann. But, says Teichmann, Fonda was no "Daddy Dearest." Lynn Redgrave has been set to star in "Teachers Only," a mid-season NBC sitcom from Johnny Carson's production company. Just weeks ago, Lynn was bumped from CBS's "House Calls" after a dispute with Universal that she says was due to her desire to breast-feed her daughter on the set. She's suing Universal over the matter. There don't seem to be any problems on her new set, though. Manager-husband John Clark reports that Lynn will bring her daughter to work and no one at Carson Productions is even concerned. Lynn Redgrave Rudolf Nureyev Do you think that great dancer Rudolf Nureyev will do another movie? I remember that his last about the dancer Nijinski was a disaster. — F.D. Nureyev's next movie will be a non-dancing one called "Exposed" in which he co-stars with Nastassia "less" Kinski. She plays a girl from Wisconsin who conies to New York to be a model. She meets Nureyev, a man of mystery, who is actually a terrorist. It sounds like an interesting departure — ballet to bombs. Your column mentioned that "Woman of the Year" star Lauren Bacall has been having a romance with her leading man Harry Guardino. Is that still going on or has there been too much togetherness? — J.J. It seems to be the romance of the year and the pair are planning a two-week vacation together the beginning of December. Jamie Ross, Guardino's understudy, will take over for him, but the producers have come up with a real surprise attraction as BacaU's replacement — Raquel Welch. Raquel, while admitting that her selection "came out of left field," also points out that she should have no problems as she sings and dances in her act when she plays Las Vegas and elsewhere. Lauren Bacall Dudley Moore, star of "Arthur" and "10," la aet tor his tin, dramatic role, "Six Weeks." Moore juat can't work enough these days He's scheduled to make two more films within the next nine months, including "Dangerously." Dudley Moore
