He was just a showstruck Aussie kid when they serenaded radio listeners back in the late ’50s with Sugartime and other honeyed melodies. But now pop singer Peter Allen is way up from Down Under, and the McGuire Sisters (from left, Chris, 56, Dorothy, 54, and Phyllis, 51) were on hand to catch his act at Carnegie Hall.

Playing a sour 16-year-old—even if it is on one of the season’s hottest series—can get a girl down. So Paper Dolls’ Nicolette Sheridan, 20, welcomed the opportunity to cut up in her spare time.

British actor John (Elephant Man) Hurt made his debut in a school production of Maeterlinck’s The Bluebird. Now he fancies a Peacock—Donna, that is, the American actress Hurt wed last month. The newlyweds are blissfully awaiting the bow of Hurt’s next film, 1984. For John, it was a good year.
