Axelrod, who is big and 48, had cut his finger trying to open an ice bucket and make himself a drink. "What a country," he murmured. "It can send three men and a mashie niblick to the moon and can't make a safe ice bucket." Axelrod has written his first novel in years (among his plays and screenplays are "The Seven Year Itch," "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?" "Breakfast at Tiffany's" "The Manchurian Candidate" and many others). Drunk as Usual Its title is "Where Am I Now When I Need Me?" It's about Hollywood and films and show people. The central character, Harvey, is forever writing suicide notes and failing to die up to them. The big scene comes when Harvey, drunk as usual, stumbles out to receive an Oscar wearing only his glasses and one beige sock. The next day he writes another suicide note. This one doesn't take either. Axelrod, touring the country for the novel, was asked about London, where he and his family have been living for three years. He loves it. The people are courteous, the streets are safe at night, and he prefers it by far to Los Angeles and New York. He was born in New York and lived there most of his life. A Long Way People in London are so polite they actually seem to like to queue up. "Maybe that's a flaw," said Axelrod. "They seem to have an absolute compulsion to queue up. My daughter loves to. She goes out of her mind. She thinks it's democracy or something." Axelrod, who wrote more than 400 radio and TV scripts, including MUSIC CENTER AHMANS0N THEATRE CHAKIRIS STRITCH s FOR RESERVATIONS 656-9333 ANDREWS oiars in weekdays&bun. $5.50. J4.50.

He sold his first radio script when he was 18 and was assistant stage manager for a revival of "Kind Lady" on Broadway back in 1940. Mel Ferrer was the stage manager. He has directed for both stage and screen. He likes writing novels, he said, and may keep at it. "You're your own director, producer, editor, sensor, prop man, leading man," he said, "you do it all." On his last two films, he was producer and director as well as the writer. "Yes, I eliminated everyone, the producer, the director," he said. "I also seem to have eliminated the audience." Axelrod got a renewed sense of the comfort and safety of London living when he arrived in New York recently. He was mugged on W. 69th St. one evening, about 10 o'clock. In the Back "This man came up behind me and struck something in my back," he said. "I don't know what it was a gun, a knife, an umbrella and said he wanted bread. I told him I wanted bread, too. I raised my arms and said 'power to the people.' He went away." Trying to explain his funny, peculiar novel, Axelrod said "it's a comment on the lunacy of Hollywood, a mythical place." He tends to miss the old days of Hollywood. "I never had any problems with things as they were.

Axelrod has a son studying at the University of California, a son in Boston University, and a daughter, 15. A stepson, Jonathan, is in his early 20s and has sold three screenplays. "He's marvelous," said Axelrod. "He'll be great." It was suggested that he must be something of a millionaire by now but Axelrod, like most millionaires, resisted such a thought. "Who's a millionaire?" he asked, "it's a state of mind. It's an opinion ... I live like a millionaire." He was asked if he had a Rolls-Royce while he and his wife were cavorting in London. "Of course, I have a .Rolls-Royce," he said. "Who better?" 5?W The overwhelming, ' absolutely shattering i in-depth investiga tion of sexuality in America today... and how it got there.
