1 1 I - y'jm nil , f Director Larry Gordon, left, confers with Burt Reynolds on set of "The End," film about death. LARRY GORDON ROLLS HIS DICE BY CLARKE TAYLOR NEW YORK Larry Gordon was a gambler shooting dice in Vegas, before he became a film producer. This may have something to do with why he was connected with "The End," a film about death that major studios passed by until Burt Reynolds committed himself to the project; "The Driver," ostensibly an action film with non-action stars (Ryan O'Neal, Isabelle Adjani and Bruce Dern) and "The Warriors," now in production with a cast of unknowns and dealing with a seamy side of city life that most New Yorkers would prefer to forget. - Standing on the set of "Warriors," Gordon reflected on his busy and not-altogether successful summer not so much on "Hooper," which apparently is making everybody happy, or on his earlier film "Hard Times," which the Museum of Modern Art has just sanctioned a classic for its archives. '''Hooper is great I loved it. 99 PGE Q tf ?

"If we'd had Clint Eastwood in the film, we'd have been forgiven everything and they'd have said, 'It's- another Eastwood film about driving cars.' If we'd had Steve McQueen, we'd have been compared to 'Bullitt' or 'The Getaway.' We were treated as an art film rather than an action film. "We took a unique approach to standard material. We'd go the same way again, but with a different cast we might have attracted an audience. I believe in returning investors' money and if 1 could make 'The Driver' again ' I'd try to rectify it for a commercial market.
