Fun The Salina Journal Thursday, January 16,1986 Page 19 Hawn, Russell still plan to wed The Far Side Crossword By Eugene Sheffer Gossip By ROBIN ADAMS SLOAN King Features Q. Whatever became of Goldie Hawn's plan to marry actor Kurt Russell? Did he dump her for some younger woman? — R.P. A. Bite your tongue. Goldie and Russell are still inseparable, still talking marriage. But, and this is a large "but," they haven't set any wedding date. Both have been up to their winsome eyeballs in work. Hawn recently finished her latest comedy, "Wildcats," due to be released in February. Kurt's making an action flick titled "Big Trouble in Little China." Goldie tells me she and Kurt will soon move to Colorado, where they've just built a house. As for a specific wedding date, I'm afraid you'll have to be patient, very patient. Q. Was actor Jack Lemmon's recently publicized trip to Cuba for political reasons that reflect his dissatisfaction with the Reagan administration? — G.S. A. Lemmon, his wife Felicia, his Tank McNamara Hawn Lemmon son Chris and daughter Courtney were invited to visit Cuba in early December. The invite was extended by officials of a Latin American film festival. Normally, U.S. citizens face restrictions in traveling to Cuba, but invitations to cultural events are normally okayed. Lemmon, being honored for his work in films, chose to show "The China Syndrome" and "Missing" in Havana. Both have strong socio-political messages. Jack says they were chosen because "I wanted to show that we can make f ilms in this country that criticize our government." Any political discussions in Cuba were ruled out by the actor. Q. Since we're senior citizens, it isn't too surprising that our favorite movie of the past year was "Cocoon," which we loved despite that unbelievable ending. Any chances of a sequel? —L.M. A. I ran into Jack Gilford, one of the gifted actors who made this film so memorable, at a quiche-tasting at La Fondue restaurant in Manhattan. Jack told me that though there's been some talk of a screen follow-up, he doubts that a "Cocoon 2" will ever unravel. "In my opinion, it would be foolish to attempt such a sequel, mainly because the first movie was so wonderful; plus the fact that sequels are seldom as effective as the originals." He added with a wink, "Please tell that nice lady who wrote the question that 'Cocoon' was really an adult fairy tale, so she shouldn't take the (final) space ship sequence so seriously." * * * Got a question?
