Fun The Salina Journal Thursday, January 23,1986 Page 19 McNichol wins good previews The Far Side Crossword By Eugene Sbeffer Gossip By ROBIN ADAMS SLOAN King Features Q. I've followed Kristy McNlchol's career since she was a little girl — growing up on "Family" on TV. Will she ever do another series? — F.C. A. That would be hard to say, but she has none planned at the present time that we know of. But you'll soon be able to enjoy the talented McNichol in a new motion picture, "Dream Lover." She portrays a young girl frightened by repeated nightmare fantasies — and turns in what pre- viewers are calling her best performance yet. Q. I'm a hockey fan and I remember a wonderful film Paul Newman made some years ago called "Slap Shot." Are they ever going to make another movie about my favorite sport?-R.M. A. Hot young star Rob Lowe will be on the big screen as a hot young hockey player in "Youhgblood." It's all about big league ice stars — with NHL great Eric Nesterenko of the Chicago Blackhawks portraying Tank McNamara McNichol Lowe Bob's dad (as well as acting as technical advisor). Q. I've read numerous references to an actor named Philip Bosco in which he's always referred to as the world's greatest undiscovered star. Is this an inside joke of some sort? A. That's considered by many to be an accurate assesment. A professional actor for over 25 years, Bosco has continually garnered awards and raves, both on and off Broadway, in such productions as "Come Back, Little Sheba," "Heartbreak House" and "The Caine Mutiny." Though his film credits include "The Pope of Greenwhich Village," "Trading Places" and "Heaven Help Us," stardom has somehow eluded him. Happily, Bosco has now been given his first starring screen role and billing in "Flanagan," co-starring Geraldine Page. It's about a 53-year- old New York cabbie who's an aspiring Shakespearean actor; it's a success story of self-realization. Bosco says of preview raves and early critical response for his emoting, "While it delights me to see the good acceptance, as far as I'm concerned, it's long overdue!" Q. I remember the brouhaha when actress Sylvia Miles deliberately dumped a dish of pasta on drama critic John Simon's head at a bash because she didn't relish the things he'd written about her. Are Miles' party manners still so impulsive? — D.K. A. Sylvia Miles is still worth watching. I ran into her at a recent shindig, and noted that she positioned herself at a table in a section adjacent to the buffet spread. This way, whenever she craved added nourishment she didn't have to walk over to the buffet like everyone else. Sylvia had only to swivel around in her chair, reach behind her and choose.
