Fun The Salina Journal Thursday, January 30,1986 Page 19 Kahn hasn't pushed 'Clue'film The Far Side Gossip By ROBIN ADAMS SLOAN King Features Q. We enjoyed the delightful performance of Madeline Kahn as the mysterious brunette in the movie comedy mystery "Clue." How come there haven't been any interviews in the press in which she discusses this picture? -W.L. A. Apparently, she feels her role hasn't been given sufficient prominence, and consequently hasn't been going out of her way to help promote the film. Madeline was finally prevailed upon to attend an opening night party, at which she reluctantly and briefly posed for a tabloid. Breaking away, she commented to the photographer, "That's enough. Thank you very much—I guess!" Honoring a Memory: When Jimmy Stewart and his wife Gloria visit the Reagans at the White House, which they do fairly often, the couple always make a secret pilgrimage to the Vietnam Memorial. Gloria's son by her previous marriage was killed in Vietnam. The boy, Ned Maclean, was Tank McNamara Kahn Stewart actually raised by Jimmy, himself a veteran of' World War II and a reserve Air Force officer, and the family was very close. Q. It seems that every time I go to the movies or open a magazine I see Melanie Griffith with her clothes off. Isn't she getting sick of appearing naked all the time? - V.D. A. I posed that question directly to Melanie. After all, she played a porno star in director Brian De Palma's ultra spicy flick "Body Double." Then, she was seen posing nude in Playboy with former husband Don Johnson. "Thank God I don't take my clothes off," said Melanie when she told about her upcoming movie, "Cherry 2000." She plays a female adventurer in the wilds, not in the bedroom. Griffith reminds me she's all of 28, and a mother (of three-year- old Alexander) by husband actor Steven Bauer. It would appear she's ready to play things more conservatively. But appearances can deceive. Griffith's next flick is "Cross Cut" in which she'll take off her clothes once again—"only once." Q. Since teenage actor Timothy Gibbs made his movie debut as Mary Tyler Moore's son in "Something in Common" it has been pointed out that young Tim Mutton also achieved overnight fame by playing Mary's son in "Ordinary People," and that lightning may strike again. How does Gibbs feel about this identification withHutton?-K.B. A. I relayed your question to the talented Timothy Gibbs, and he doesn't love these frequent comparisons of the two Tims at all. Gibbs says he's a great admirer of Tim Button's acting, but he is quick to point out that their acting styles are quite dissimilar. "Something in Common" is a drama with a comedy twang, "says Tim.
