8-C THE BAYTOWN SUN Wednesday, December 1. 1982 'Little Man' Guided Newhart Into CBS Series By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NBA) — America — maybe even the whole wide world — should give thanks to the little man on Bob Newhart's shoulder. Most of us have never met that sterling gentleman. We probably wouldn't know him if we tripped over him. And yet, because of that creature, we have Newhart back with us again, on his new CBS series, "Newhart." "1 have a little man who sits on my shoulder," says Newhart. And, when Newhart says someting you are inclined to believe him so you look at his shoulder but there is nothing there. Not even dandruff. "And my little man tells me if the time is right to do something, or if it isn't. So I'ar, the little man has never been wrong." It was the little ma:a who told him back in '61 that he should do a comedy variety series. He did, and it was modestly successful. Then, in '72, the little man nudged him in the neck and whispered something about doing a sit-com about a psychologist, and "The Bob Newhart Show" was a rousing winner and ran for six merry and profitable years. "It was still going strong when I quit it," says Bob. This time, though, it wasn't the efforts of the shoulder stowaway who told him to stop doing the series. "I was simply burnt-out," says Newhart. "I couldn't do anymore and, for a year or so, I didn't do much of anything. And I certainly knew I wasn't going to do another television series." In the four years since "The Bob Newhart Show" went off, Bob Newhart did a couple of movies, which he says were bad. "I did 'First Family,' " he says, "and that should have been good but somehow wasn't. And I did'Lit- tle Miss Marker'with Walter Matthau and that wasn't good, either," He filled in between those two unfortunate movies by doing a lot of personal appearances — and even more golf. He is one of Hollywood's more proflific golfers. "But," he says, "I gradually came to understand that doing that television series had been the best fun I had ever had. I realized that I missed it a lot." So, with the little man on his shoulder egging him on, he concluded that he should do another series. "I believe now," he says, "that in the back of my mind, I always knew I would do another series some day." Then came the problem of figuring out what series to do. There were not many potential candidates. In the time after the first show went off, they hadn't sent him any ideas because he was so adamant about not doing any. So there was no backlog of ideas from which to pick and choose. "At first," he says, "there was some talk of updating the characters and situation of 'The Bob Newhart Show.' We'd make it four years later and my character would have become a teacher. "But half the fun of a TV show is the gamble, the risk, the seeing if you can make it all happen again/ , A Gift to the AMERICAN CAMCER SOCIETY: ..MEMORIAL T PROGRAM means so much in cancer control. CHRISTMAS CRAFT BAZAAR- MISS mi Friday Dec. 3 12-8PM 4508 Chaparral 428-1425 Homemade Christmas Decorating and Gifts Hollywood Costumes Finally To Be Preserved HOLLYWOOD (NEA) — "Hollywood costumes," says Fred Hayman, "are an endangered species." What he means is that all those lovely costumes you have seen in the movies for half-century or so are disappearing. Wearing out in forgotten prop rooms. Gathering dust in boxes on the floor of studio storage rooms. Being eaten by moths in attic closets. And, until he came along, nobody cared. Hayman is a movie buff. He is also th? man who runs Giorgio, one of the shiniest jewels in the Rodeo Drive collection of great boutiques. Giorgio is where the elite shop. It is so fancy it even has its own perfume. But Hayman likes to say, simply, that he is in the clothing CINEMA 6 . SAN JACINTO MALL 420 2116 hei't!." .i POLTERGEIST*, ^Heidi's business. So clothing — and especially Hollywood costumes — are near and dea* to his heart. Consequently, he is doing something about finding, preserving and displaying all those long-forgotten costumes. It's been a dream of his for a long time, this idea of saving the great Hollywood costumes. It came to fruition, at least partially, when the Maple Center, a Los Angeles health group, named him their man of the year for a charity affair. Hayman accepted and turned it into his opening blow for«the preservation of the costumes. He staged something he called "The Hollywood Designer: A Costume Retrospective," and got dozens of top stars (mostly his customers) to model dozens of the all-time great Hollywood costume designers' creations.

There was the dressing gown Lauren Bacall wore in ' 'Designing Woman," the luscious black- and-red beaded thing Julie Andrews displayed in "Star!," the tan silk gown worn by Natalie Wood in "Gypsy." And on and on and on. It was hard finding the costumes Hayman wanted. Often, when he did find one, it was badly worn or damaged. He says they had to rebead many, repair many, rework many. A few were so far gone they were simply copied from scratch. "My aim," says Hayman," is to find a permanent home for all these lovely costumes." He says that these, and others, have permanently influenced American fashions — perhaps even the fashions of the entire world — and they deserve a better fate than to be forgotten, or, worse, thrown away. There has long been talk of a Hollywood museum, but, so far, it has never been more than just talk. Now Hayman hopes to get something started, perhaps beginning with costumes and ultimately expanding to include much more than that. He says he's talked to the mayor of Beverly Hills about possibly using Greystone, a mansion in that city, where the American Film Institute used to have its headquarters. Now it belongs to Beverly Hills, and is only being used sporadically for parties. Hayman, a Swiss native, has long been a big movie fan. When he first came to America, he went to movies day after day, hour after hour, as a cheap, convenient way to learn English. Today, many movie stars are his friends. He deplores the de- parture of glamour from the Hollywood scene. As a movie fan, he remembers the good old glamorous days, gone but not forgotten. "There are not enough well-dressed stars today," Hayman says. "So I think it is our job to retain the glamour in museums and in collections. " He believes the Hollywood influence on fashion is still strong. He says that clothing designers all over the world go to see movies to get their inspiration for new creations. "And the classic Hollywood designs are always fresh," "ie says. "Jean Louis' 'Gilda' dress, the one worn by Rita Hayworth, is as beautiful and commercial today as anything I have in my store."
