Fun The Salina Journal Saturday, January 11,1986 Page 21 Sheen filk in on dad's TV film The Far Side Gossip By ROBIN ADAMS SLOAN King Features Q. I caught the name of Charlie Sheen, one of my favorite young actors, among the credits for the recent made-for-TV movie, "Out of the Darkness," yet I couldn't spot him. Was Charlie's part scissored? — K.P. A. If you watched very carefully, you'd have seen him ansering the door of a tenement building in one scene, with a face full of shaving cream. The story behind it is cute: Charlie showed up on the set to visit and spend time with his dad, Martin Sheen, who stars as Eddie Zigo, the real-life cop who captured the Son of Sam killer. When the actor who was set to play the agitated man-with-the- shaving-cream didn't show, Charlie eagerly said, "Let me do it, dad." He later quipped, "This scene finally gave me the opportunity to slam a door in my father's face!'' Q. Was Elizabeth Taylor really so distraught at the death of her close friend Rock Hudson that she fell off Tank McNamara Sheen Taylor the wagon?—I.P. A. In a word, no. Elizabeth (as she prefers to be called, not "Liz") delivered a heartfelt speech at the memorial service at Hudson's Beverly Hills home after his death. Her closing line to the mourners gathered was, "Now, let's all go upstairs to the patio and lift a glass in memory of our friend." Taylor, a veteran of widely publicized bouts with booze and pills, was careful to add one more phrase. "I will," said Elizabeth, "have my Perrier (water) and you have anything you want." Q. One of the main reasons I enjoyed the new movie comedy, "Vol- unteers," about Peace Corps shenanigans in Thailand, was to once again view scenery of that beautiful country, which I've visited on several occasions. Is this the first time Thailand has been seen as background in a major movie? — H.O. A. Sorry to disillusion you, but the footage you admire in "Volunteers" wasn't filmed in Thailand at all, but embodied several cleverly recreated locations in Mexico. These speical sets included an entire native Thai village, a jungle opium king's palace, and an intricate, life-sized suspension bridge integral to the plot line — all ingeniously created and engineered by American and Mexican technicians. One crew member recalls, "Just about every conceivable problem, coral snakes, torrential rains, overall bad weather, bugs and lots and lots of mud, dogged our tracks from the beginning. Maybe it would have been easier to film in Thailand!" # ft & Got a question? Write to Robin Adams Sloan at King Features Syndicate, Inc., 235 E. 45th St., New York, N.Y. 10017.
