Bionic buddies

Lindsay Wagner is flexing her muscle both socially and careerwise of late—she’ll appear in both CBS’s Halloween movie The Two Worlds of Jenny Logan and in its Scruples miniseries. Recently divorced from actor Michael Brandon, she went to an L.A. party for singer Peter Allen with Henry Kingi. But don’t leap to supercharged conclusions, he says; it’s “just a friendship.” He was her stunt coordinator on the Bionic Woman series.

Cool Carradines

Making Westerns can be a dusty business, so the three showbizzy Brothers Carradine plopped into a bath together after a long day’s shooting on The Long Riders in Clayton, Ga. David, 42, Keith, 29, and Robert, 24, have teamed up for the first time to play the gun-slinging Younger brothers in the film about American outlaws. There’s more brotherly horseplay—James Keach co-wrote the screenplay; he and brother Stacy will play Frank and Jesse James. And Nicholas and Christopher Guest are the nasty Ford brothers. Is there dissension on the set? Just a touch of sibling rivalry.

Nureyev’s patron

International jeté setter Rudolf Nureyev never worries about a bed in Paris. One is always waiting for him in the apartment of long-time pal Douce François, the tin heiress. The two have been platonic sidekicks for years and enjoy pas de deux-ing in public on occasions like this opening of Apocalypse Now. So attentive is Douce that when Rudi said he’d like a pied à terre of his own, she found him one on the Seine. He bought it, and now she’s supervising the decor.


The perforated silhouette was not the handiwork of Barry Gibb (toting a .45-caliber tommy gun) or brother Maurice (with the .357 Magnum) but of a G-man at the FBI’s Washington headquarters. However, while on a tour of the firing range during a concert stay in the D.C. area, the singing brothers made their own mark, impressing instructor Charles Smith Jr. (right). Gun fancier Maurice, who owns a Colt Python and practices regularly, scored well, but Barry outgunned him with a three-shot pattern that could be covered by a quarter. Is that what “number one with a bullet” means?

Scorsese takes a wife

Snapped outside a Rome hotel with his new mother-in-law, Ingrid Bergman, 64, and his bride, Isabella Rossellini, 27, director Martin Scorsese, 36, looked like a character off one of his own Mean Streets. But he’s not at all, says Isabella, whom he wed with Robert De Niro as best man. “He agrees with my ideas about the emancipation of women. If he had been authoritarian, repressive, I promise you I wouldn’t have married him.” In fact, says journalist and sometime actress Isabella, if she doesn’t act in his films it’s not because he’s hard to work with, but “I don’t want Martin to be condemned to always dreaming up parts for an Italo-American.”

Star warriors

Lt. Gen. James H. Doolittle, 82, the retired World War II flier who led the first U.S. air strikes against Japan, turned up at the Beverly Hilton recently for a salute. It wasn’t for him, though, but for Brig. Gen. (Ret.) Jimmy Stewart, 71, who had served under him as a bomber squadron commander in the Eighth Air Force in ’44. Doolittle was there to present Stewart with the L.A. Philanthropic Society’s Outstanding American Award. So he refrained from pulling rank as Stewart barked orders—or rather drawled suggestions—for Americas’ current ills. “Lowering our voices would help a lot,” declared the actor. “I’m afraid we’re going to shout the country to death.”
