Fun The Salina Journal Saturday, January 25,1986 Page 21 Van Johnson prefers private life The Far Side By Eugene Sheffer Gossip ; By ROBIN ADAMS SLOAN ! ; '', ' King Features ! Ql We hear that veteran stage and screen actor Van Johnson is something of a hermit. Why does he keep to himself so much? — H. J. 'A. Johnson, vtfio'll be 70 this; year, is, to ;pijt' it mildly, a very private per- sbru -Van has had his share of ill- txesSes over the years, and he likes to take 'things easy when not working. He" .recently completed a stint in the Broadway production of the hit mu-. steal-?La Cage aux Folles." During the,engagement, he kept very much to:himself. He spent most of his offstage time in his New York apartment painting, doing needlepoint and, says one associate, making regular visits to a "fat farm." Q: Has comedian Steve Allen been haying eye trouble that threatens his sigjit?-A.C. IAr-There were reports in early November that Allen had undergone catafact surgery in Los Angeles (Cataracts are an eye disease that cgri'cause partial or complete blind- Johnson Allen ness if not properly treated). However, the true story seems to be more grim, although happy results are expected. The former host of NBC- TV's "Tonight Show" is said to have been operated on for colon cancer. He cancelled all his professional appearances during a period of recuperation. But he's expected to be back in shape, ready to roll, in the near future. Q. I keep wondering if Roger Moore will star in another James Bond movie. My friend says he will, but I say he won't. — H.V. A. You are right. Or, at least, it seems that way. Roger told me just a while ago that he's f inally had it with 007. He says his decision is definite, positive and irreversible. Roger is 58, and has starred as Bond in seven flicks over 12 years. Critics remarked that in the last flick, "A View to a Kill," Moore looked obviously too old as 007. Anyway, Moore (who recently underwent painful knee surgery) says he's eager to take on other film assignments. Now we'll have to find out who the "new" James Bond will be. I'll keep you posted. No Lady, No Sale: A famous singer/dancer pranced into Bloomingdale's in Manhattan with her personal maid in tow. When a sales clerk in the linen department was too busy to give her immediate attention, Mme. Star sent over her maid with this message, "My lady wishes for you to wait on her immediately." The salesperson, not one whit intimidated, replied in syllables audible throughout the area, "She may be your lady, but fortunately, she isn't mine. Please tell her she'll have to wait her turn just like everybody else!" Classified ads get results. "Check this guy out, Lois.... Artificial for sure.'
