CM" POLITICIANS FROM PAGE THREE defensive as he marched down East era Parkway in Brooklyn with run ning mate Herman Bad 1 Ho by his side Members of the crowd turned thumbs down, shouted "Go home" and bel lowed "Four more years!" in support ot Dinkins. But the Republican-Liberal candi date downplayed the reception, say Costner panting for 'Hot Summer' nn evin Costner wont even get undressed in his own movies. (The posteri-1 1 or you saw in "Dances With Wolves" belonged to a body-double.) So I you can imagine how happy he is to find out that a sex scene from one of his early B-movies may again find its way into theaters. Ul 1 The year was 1979. The film: "Malibu Hot Summer." Its producer, kUEric Louzil, well remembers the day the 24-year-old Costner took off his shirt Fifth Ave.

Cuomo, Mayor Dinkins and the Rev. Jesse Jackson joined hands and led the Fifth Ave. parade after Dinkins, as expected, won the endorsement of the Central Labor Council, an umbrella group of New York unions. Previewing a strategy Democrats will employ all fall, Cuomo repeatedly painted Giuliani as a political disciple of Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush, out of step with heavily Democratic New York. "Mr.

Giuliani, whom I know, has been a very firm supporter of the new federalism, of Bush, and Reagan and conservative Republican policies. He believed it for a whole lifetime, and still does. Well, those policies are killing New York," Cuomo said. Cuomo downplayed the asbestos problem, Parking Violations Bureau scandal and other cises dogging Dinkins this summer, saying it was time to "get back to substance" jobs, crime and education, issues on which he says Dinkins has excelled. Giuliani, who marched with the Uniformed Firefighters Association three hours later, shot back: "The governor has been governor the last 150 years.

Any problems in New York are primarily more the responsibility of the governor than any former President" Giuliani also found himself on the ing it was a sign of strength that he even bothered to campaign on Dinkins' political turf. "What we are doing is taking the campaign to his base because he cant take it to ours," Giuliani said. "He is fighting to hold on to some remnant of what he had." By contrast, the Brooklyn crowd enveloped Dinkins, who marched about two hours later than Giuliani, carrying a 3-foot-high wooden ankh, a traditional symbol of peace and life, that was carved by the Crown Heights Youih Collective. At Nostrand the crush became so intense that Dinkins found himself in parade gridlock, surrounded by a confused crush of cops and paraders. "I hug him! I kiss him! I love him!" said Christiana Davis, of Bedford-Stuyvesant, who rushed past police to give Dinkins a bear hug.

Dinkins told reporters that now, with the general election only two months away, he hoped he would finally be compared to Giuliani and not to "Utopian circumstances." GEoacE Rush Si MM) Like a rare vintage wine, "We had a hard time getting him to do it His co-star, Leslie Brander, was the wife of the director. She was topless. Kevin was really uptight about kissing her. We had to give him a bottle of wine to mellow him out" Around the time that he was due to shoot "The Untouchables," Costner tried to buy the rights to "Malibu Hot Summer." He hoped to host a barbecue where he'd burn its negative. Back then, the schlockmeisters at Troma films wouldn't oblige him.

But now that Louzil wants to recycle Costner's love scene in a new flick called "Silent Fury," Troma is on Costner's side. "Kevin Costner did that scene for that particular movie," said Troma veep Michael Herz. "Out of deference to him, we're not licensing that scene." "They're worried about Kevin suing them," says Louzil, who promises that "the scene will be in my movie. I have other "Malibu" footage that was not used in the final cut" Louzil envisions a scene in "Silent Fury" where an amorous couple pops the old Costner flick into their VCR. "Who's a better the guy will ask, "me or Kevin? Cheap exploitation? Louzil pleads guilty but argues that "any film that uses a star is exploitative." "I'm sure we'll be hearing from him," Louzil predicted.

Costner's production office told me that they had made him aware of "Silent Fury." But since he's directing "Wyatt Earp" in New Mexico and racing to beat Kurt Russell's "Tombstone" to the theaters he's too busy at the moment to worry about his cinematic skeletons. Writhe comment Madonna, who turned 35 last month, shows no signs of encroaching middle-age modesty. Glenn O'Brien, who edited her book, "Sex," has written the text for a 36-page picture book that will be sold on the Materialist's "Girlie Show" concert tour. O'Brien told me the stage's central prop will be "the world's largest go-go ys 1 Bill Gallo's cartoons stand the test of time. Here are some of his more memorable ones.

pole." a larger version of the sort of pillars that decorate many striptease establishments. "I think it's safe to say there will be some writhing in the show," said O'Brien. A number of the dancers will have their heads shaved. Some clothes will come off. "But nothing illegal.

Nipples will be covered by a thin layer of vinyl. The concert is really a history of girlie shows through the ages. It has elements of vaudeville and the Hollywood musical." Of course. Madonna's biggest influence was Clarissa Pinkola Estes, feminine-empowerment author of the best seller "Women Who Run With the Wolves," said O'Brien. Then he suppressed a laugh.

Incidentally Three years ago, socialite-activist Lilly Lawrence moved to the Waldorf from the Essex House so Nikko U.S.A. which owns the Essex, could renovate her $10 million duplex penthouse. Now Lawrence has returned. But she isn't about to drop her lawsuits charging that Essex staffers defamed her with vulgar racial epithets. She's also looking for a new location for a fund-raising lunch she had planned for Mayor Dinkins: "I didn't want to subject anyone to the indignity of walking through a Nikko lobby." Jim Sheridan, who scripted Miramax' "Into the West" used to live in New York and direct plays.

Now that he has returned to Ireland to direct Daniel Day-Lewis and Emma Thompson in the film "In the Name of the Father," Sheridan misses New York, but not its theater "Imagine the apex of your career being a good review from New York Times critic Frank Rich.

KEEP THIS ONE UNDER your hats 'cause nobody is coming out front with it, but the whispers are that Fox-TV is planning a two-part, four-hour miniseries on the lives of Sonny Cher.
