WALTHt SCOTS Want the facts? Want to learn the truth about prominent personalities? Want informed opinion? Write Walter Scott, Parade, 733 3rd Ave., New York, N.Y. 10017. Your full name will be used unless otherwise requested. Volume of mail received makes personal replies impossible. Q. Is it true that we will soon have a deluge of boob on the sex life of trie late H. L Hunt, the Texas billionaire, now that the true story of his various families has been told?--L. L, Houston. A. H. L. Hunt, the oil tycoon, was one of the most colorful, controversial, and politically conservative characters in U.S. history--also one of the wealthiest. At least three H. L. Hunt biographies are in preparation which are sure to reveal his double life. Q. One of the key battles for Texas delegates to the Democratic National Convention next year will be between Sen. Bentsen of Texas and Cov. Wa//ace of Alabama. Who will win the majority of the Texas ^delegation?--Tom Bell, Houston. A. Probably Bentsen. Q. / understand that Rex Harrison can't keep a wife, that his fifth has now called it quits. Whafs wrong with Harrison anyway? They used to call him "Sexy- Rexy," and say he was such a great lover.--Mrs. /ohn L. Owens, Seattle, Wash. A. Rex Harrison is well on his way, marriage-wise, to becoming the Mickey Rooney of the geriatric set. His current wife, Elizabeth, formerly married to actor Richard Harris, plans to sue for divorce. PHILIPPE DE GAULLE ELIZABETH AND REX HARRISON Q. It is said that the film "Rooster Cogburn," starring John Wayne and Katharine Hepburn, is a bomb and will not even recoup the cost of the negative, is that so?--Diane Fletcher, Pasadena, Cai A. According to people who have seen the film, it's a bore. Whether or not it will recoup its negative cost remains to be seen. Q. Charles de Gaulle, the /ate President of France, had a son named Philippe. Whatever became of him? Did he really join the Foreign Legion?--8. Mitchell, Bridgeton, NJ. A. Philippe de Gaulle, 53, is a vice admiral in the French Navy. Q. Of all the advisers Richard Nixon had, one of the best .was Richard Moore who was special counsel to the President. Mr. Moore when'I knew him, used to run KTTV, a TV station in JLbs Angeles then owned by The Los Angeles Times. He is married to lane Swift of the meat-packing family. Moore is an altogether decent man. He was represented at the Watergate hearings by Herbert "Jack" Miller, who is now Nixon's lawyer. I have heard on occasion that torn by his guilty conscience regarding the Watergate coverup, Richard Moore became"Deep Throat." And that it was he who supplied Bob Woodward, coauthor of "All the Presidents Men" with vital information. Is Dick Moore "Deep Throat?"^-F. W., San Marino, Cal. A. Richard A. Moore, Yale Law School, class of '39, met Richard Nixon in a Los Angeles TV studio in 1950, later became his TV campaign adviser. After working one year as special assistant to Attorney General John Mitchefl, he was appointed special counsel to Nixon on" April 21, 1971, advised the appointment to the Supreme Court of Justices William Rehnquist and Lewis Powell. Says Richard .Moore: "I am not now nor have I ever been Deep Throat. I have never met, spoken to, or communicated with Bob Woodward in person or by phone, telegraph, mail, or geranium." During the Watergate hearings, Moore's performance on W was so masterful--he so touchingly portrayed the stumbling, absent-minded, befuddled college professor -- that · many of his admirers, aware of his natural alertness and sharp intelligence, felt strongly that he should have been voted a special Academy Award for the best performance by a supporting player in 1973. Q. If Robert Vesco, the financier who escaped to Costa Rica to avoid prosecution in this country, greases the right Washington palms, won't they let him back into this country?--P. Hathaway, Santa Barbara, Cal. A. It is highly doubtful that Vesco can buy his way back in. He is too notorious, especially at this time. Q. Anita Pallenberg, the girlfriend of Keith Richard of the Rolling Stones, was recently deported from /amaica on a 1 drug charge. Richard has one of the most beautiful homes in Ocho Rios. Now that Anita can no longer live there, is Richard's mansion for sale? Or will he get a substitute for Anita?--D.T., New Orleans. · A. The Richard home overlooking Cutlass Bay in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, is valued at $125,000, has not as yet been placed on the market. Chances are Richard will keep it. KEITH RICHARD WITH GIRLFRIEND ANITA PALLENBERG Q. Ho//ywood is making films based on the life of Clark Cable and Carole Lombard and W.C. Fields and Errol Flynn. How truthful will these films be? Will they show, for example, that Gable wore false teeth, was unfaithful to his wife, that Fields was an alcoholic who kept a mistress, and that Flynn was a cocaine addict?--Morris West, Pasadena, Cal. A. Probably not, although it would be impossible to make any sort of accurate film about W.C. Fields without showing his love for the bottle. chairman of Ihe board, ARTHUR H.
