JOYCE HABER Hunter Rosa Hunter is fat (not literally) and happy with "Air- port under his belt (it passed the $59 million mark last wteek). But now; he's 'itching to start another project, . still untitled, which would reteam the producer with his "Airport, partner, George Seaton. geatbn has written the original screenplay for , - wnat Koss describes as "a woman's story" . (natch, that's what Hunter does , so well). , - "It's tied in with the ac: . tivfets and militants,";, he explains. It , will probably , be the .first movie, oh the ' subject ever to get a G rat- 5 ing. His movie,, "The Pub- lie ;Eye,t;with Mia .Far-ro w, won't start until springy because it requires much exterior shooting, ; - Ross - says, "and -1 can't trust the British weather till then.": iy:;i,r:j: Another. project Ros3 is waxiner enthusiastic about: ,, would costar Helen Hayes and ter has a special in, at least. Miss Sinatra just happens to' be the daughter of you-know-who and Nancy Sr., Nancy's been Ross' ever-so-steady, charming companion about town for absolutely eons ? ' James ''Maronwanted' to'' introduce his lady-friend, . Jacky Hutton, to Beverly Hills highlife, but in low key. : He chose the wrong day to take her to lunch at the Bistro: They were settling down for a hamburger when Ellen Blume Graham arrived to photograph some of the' restaurant's top female, clientele for a West magazine layout. As the ladies trooped in,-among them Audrey (Mrs. Billy) Wilder, Fran (Mrs. Ray) Stark and Frances (Mrs. Edgar) :Bergen, James started presenting Jacky by a phony name. He finally gave up. Jacky Spells her name that way so's not to be confused with that other rich jet-setter called Jackie. , Charlotte's We Sold Jacky's the South African heiress who's been Mason's playmate of late on his worldly locationing: He gave her a 55-foot junk while they were in Hong Kong for "Yin and the Yang." Next month, Mason lectures (with Jacky present) at London's National Film Institute; then they travel to Toronto for the world premiere of his movie, "Spring and Port Wine." But still no wedding bells, says James . . , ; ; ' ' That classically wonderful children's (and adult's) author, E. B. White, refused to sell his airy talc,, "Charlotte's Web" to Walt Disney for half a decade. Now White has finally sold the rights, not to Disney, but to Edgar Bronfman's relatively new company, Sagittarius. The children's bestseller will be a feature-length cartoon . . , ,.:.""
