Richard Kiley who made "Man From La Mancha" famous and won great reviews for his singing as well as acting, has come to Hollywood to make his pitch for the movie version. He'll co-star with George Peppard in "Pendulum." Julie Christie is back in Hollywood and just as excited about Warren Beatty's Oscar nomination as she was for her own.

The producer of "Lawrence of Arabia," Sam Spiegel, will throw all his talent and lots of money into a film about Russia during the period that led up to the Russian Revolution ol 1917.

He's taking his finished film, "Green Berets," over to Vietnam for previews in front of the toughest audiences he can find. He'll make personal appearances and leave himself wide open for all criticism. In the end, Wayne will then be able to cut his film to the best of all criteria. Don't be too supriscd when you learn Omar Sharif has signed a recording contract; he has several offers as a result of his impressive singing in "Funny Girl."
