What one gossip columnist has been saying about his feelings toward Faye really has him in a dander. It's not true, he insists, that he ever predicted Ms. Dunaway might end up in a mental institution. "I certainly don't feel that way. I know Faye's eccentric and she knows that. We have a lot of fun laughing about it, In fact. ' Neither he nor Faye feels the gossip chronicler's distorted report was any laughing matter.

Norman Brokaw. "They did go a little astray at first," admits the press agent, but now they want to put together a tight, worthwhile package that will take Spitz places." What they're putting together is a "Mike Douglas-type show" involving guest stars and audience participation. Where they'd like Mark to go with it is to supper clubs around the world. Before he goes, he'll have to master the art of charm. Universal Studio's president Sid Sheinberg hopes he won't have a problem on his hands. "Earthquake," the epic due for fall release, includes sequences so realistic that it seems a major quake actually is occurring. A warning will be flashed across the screen asking audiences not to panic in alarm that the action, is all make-believe. But what would happen, worries Sheinberg, if a quirk of fate occurred, if a real earthquake took place while the movie was playing in theaters and moviegoers sat calmly at their seats, convinced there was no danger.
