My Neighbor Bernle Goetz 

By Myra Friedman with Michael Daly 
Myra Friedman was napping on December 
29 when she got a call from her upstairs 
neighbor Bernhard Goetz. It immediately be- 
came clear to her that Goetz was the gunman 
police were seeking as the "Death Wish Vigi- 
lante." Over the next two days, while Goetz 
prepared to turn himself in, Friedman held a 
series of extraordinary conversations with 
the fugitive. Tapes of two of those conversa- 
tions later became critical grand-jury evi- 
dence, and Friedman's story of her en- 
counters provides a remarkable glimpse into 
Goetz's mind. 


Amazing Grace, the Budget Basher 

By Brock Brower 

Three years ago, President Reagan asked J. 
Peter Grace, chairman and CEO of W. R. 
Grace & Company, to head a commission 
that would "hunt down government waste 
like hungry bloodhounds." Eighteen months 
later, the Grace Commission released a 
21,000-page report that cited 2,478 items of 
waste and inefficiency in government and 
suggested ways to save $424.4 billion over 
three years. But the report met with little en- 
thusiasm, and the commission's recommen- 
dations have gone nowhere. Grace, now 71, 
figures the total federal debt at $13 trillion by 
the year 2000, and he's taken his crusade to 
the people. He's joined columnist lack 
Anderson and formed Citizens Against 
Waste. Says Anderson of his new partner, 
"He's a multimillionaire and a certifiable 


North by Northwest 

By Seymour Britchky 

' The Upper West Side has never been known 
for its great restaurants, but these days it is 
possible to eat out north of West 72nd 

Street — and to do at least as well as at Za- 
bar's. In this roundup, Seymour Britchky re- 
views ten of the Upper West Side's best res- 
taurants, from the Terrace on the sixteenth 
floor of Columbia's Butler Hall to the new 
Cafe Central on Columbus Avenue. Only 
one of them existed fifteen years ago; just a 
few were around even four years ago. Collec- 
tively, they prove that not all neighborhood 
change is for the worse.

Esprit National Sales Manager 
Age: 27 

I like monogamy, but I left my 
boyfriend in New York; I left 
everything for Esprit! I'm not 
carefree enough, but when I 
feel young I feel good. Satin 
underwear is nice to wear on 
special occasions, but on most 
weekends I stay home and 
watch rented movies with 
friends. When I was little I 
wanted to be an actress, but 
then I found out I couldn't act.

not have seen Simon Gray's latest play, 
The Common Pursuit, before completing 
his article about the sale of The New 
York Review of Books ["Literary Lotto," 
January 21]. The play opened January 18 
at New Haven's Long Wharf Theatre and 
is a study of the progressive deterioration 
of a literary magazine and the intellec- 
tual poseurs who run it. The parallels 
between the play and the history of The 
New York Review of Books are striking.

David Blum's assault on The New York 
Review of Books makes me think that the 
Review's editors were prudent in their re- 
fusal to be interviewed in connection 
with the article. Although the Review 
suffers from editorial imbalances — sever- 
al of which were accurately noted by 
Blum — it cannot be challenged in its 
claim to be the most literate and compre- 
hensive journal of the humanities avail- 
able to an educated general audience. 
Those of us who regard the Review as a 
mainstay of our own continuing educa- 
tion have derived far more from its "soft, 
expansive essays on offbeat books that 
offend almost no one" than Blum evi- 
dently realizes. I am also skeptical of 
Blum's gratuitous closing gibe at the Re- 
views trade in personal classified ads, an 
enterprise that seems to have achieved 
respectability elsewhere.

Flatiron Impressions 


["The Flatiron Is Hot," by Phil Patton, 
January 28] was a welcome recognition 
of a remarkable revival. However, your 
author did not adequately recognize 
many of the local industries, companies, 
and institutions that have never left the 
area and have played an integral role in 
its resurgence. Anchoring 23rd Street's 
commercial vitality are the toy, novelty, 
porcelain, glassware, and gift industries. 
Two major national companies, New 
York Life Insurance and Metropolitan 
Life, have maintained their corporate 
headquarters at Madison Square Park for 
most of this century. A number of finan- 
cial, medical, and educational institu- 
tions have also long served the neighbor-

hood and the city. While photographers 
and other artisans are in the area, they 
are by no means the only local bu sinesses . 
Our friends in the real-estate industry de- 
serve full credit for mobilizing the mar- 
ket to exploit the advantages of the 23rd 
Street neighborhood. But the area's suc- 
cess is based on more than the astute 
judgment of a few realtors.

mentioning the origins of "twenty-three

phrase at gentlemen hanging out on the 
corner of 23rd Street, where "the winds

ping up Gibson girls' skirts and offering 
daring views of ankles." At least, accord-

prevent the Holocaust Memorial Com- 
mission from taking over the federally 
owned U.S. Custom House ["Intelli- 
gencer: Mrs. Astor Argues Against Holo- 
caust-Shrine Site," by Sharon Churcher, 
January 14]. The joyful Beaux-Arts build- 
ing is simply the wrong building for a 
memorial to the horrors of the Holo- 
caust. The flamboyant Custom House 
would be a natural site for a cultural-arts 
center housing a library, theater, and 
cinema to serve the growing lower-Man- 
hattan residential community, visiting 
tourists, the financial-district workers, 
and Staten Island commuters, whose 
ferry is only a few blocks away. The 
famed Rotunda room, with its wonderful 
WPA murals, could house special exhib- 
its and concerts. The three-acre Battery 
Park City site suggested by New York 
State for the Holocaust museum would 
permit construction of a more appro- 
priate building, one able to reflect the 
awful lesson of the Holocaust far better 
than the U.S. Custom House.

For the sheer magnificence of 
its luxury alone, the Jaguar XJ-S 
is unique. But the combination 
of the S-type's luxury with its 
astonishing V- 1 2 performance 
takes it beyond any other car 
available in America today 

Turn the key and the Jaguar 
5.3 liter V- 1 2 purrs into action. 
This is the production version of 
the engine that powers Jaguar's 
successful XJR-5 racing cars 
and the XJ-S that won the 1 984 
European Touring Car Cham- 
pionship. It is smooth and quiet 
at any speed. The feeling of con- 
trol and responsiveness is a reve- 
lation, for Jaguar teams its 
superb power plant with 
racebred handling technology 

The steering is positive and 
precise: a power rack and pinion 
system. Four wheel independent 
suspension and anti-dive geom- 
etry up front add to the S-type's 
superb road manners. Braking is 
sure and confident with power 
discs on all four wheels. 



I > 

But riveting performance is 
only one facet of the S-type's 
allure. Being a Jaguar, it is also 
exquisitely luxurious, supple 
leather surrounds its passengers, 
rare wood paneling enriches 
its quiet, comfortable interior 
and state of the art electronics 
add the convenience of cruise 
control, climate control, an 
advanced 80-watt sound 
system, and much more 

The Jaguar XJ-S is designed 
to give a superlative motoring 
experience to a few enthusiast 
drivers. We invite you to sample 
its many seductive pleasures. For

black West Sider, what else am I to make 
of the all-white-then, all-white-now cast? 
In the text, Bethany tries to disregard 
questions of demography, but Barbara 
Pfeffer's photographs expose the com- 
monplace fact of housing discrimination 
in New York. If "The Apartment" is not 
an all-white enclave, the photo essay is 
misleading. But if the portraits constitute 
a valid sample, New York Magazine has 
indeed offered a "glimpse of the soul" of 
middle-class life on the West Side.

devising what may be the single most de- 
rogatory critical remark of the century. 
His comment that Robert Wilson's Ein- 
stein on the Beach ["Theater: False Mes- 
siah, Fake Diamonds, " January 7] was "a 
four-and-a-half-hour masturbatory day- 
dream" outdoes even the typical toxicity 
of Simon's pen and certainly deserves a 
place in the annals of theater criticism. 
The American theater will remain alive 
as long as creators such as Wilson con- 
tinue to stretch the limits of our concept 
of art, and critics such as Simon draw at- 
tention to them with an intensity that 
mere praise cannot hope to achieve.

Diamonds, went to extraordinary lengths 
to single out my name, only, it seems, to 
make a most imextraordinary pun: 
". . . Richard Camp, who may singlehand- 
edly give camp a bad name." I haven't 
heard that pun since it was groaned out 
of my junior-high-school study hall. Ah, 
but I am not the first Camp to be punned 
with such antiquated zeal. In September, 
Simon reviewed The Golem, in which an 
actor named Camp (no relation) was also 
campily "Simonized." Are we who are 
named Camp forever to bear the brunt of 
Mr. Simon's Paleozoic puns? Perhaps if 
Simon resisted his chestnuts, he might 
come up with a rational review. But as 
many in the theater community know, as 
far as the camp lohn Simon is concerned, 
a "rational review" is rather oxymoronic. 
Which, but for the prefix, well describes 
his review of Diamonds.

The Dali Drama: A Surreal Tale of Commercial Art 

American Express cardholders got it last year four "origi- 
nal lithographs" by Salvador Dali, each bearing the art- 
ist's "personal signature in pencil," each $975. But the story 
of these Alice in Wonderland prints has become curiouser 
and curiouser, and Dali's lawyer and some art experts are 
saying they're virtually worthless reproductions. 

First, are these "genuine and authentic, new and original 
works of art" by Dali? Yes, said an accompa- 
nying "Certificate of Evaluation" from a 
former president of the Appraisers Associ- 
ation of America, Laurence Casper. But art 
experts say that means the plates would have 
to have been produced with Dali's participa- 
tion. And Dali lawyer Michael Ward Stout 
said last week, "The American public is 
spending $975 on something the artist never 
touched or approved." Stout said the limited 
edition of 5,000 consists of unauthorized cop- 
ies of four of twelve watercolors the painter 
created in 1 968 for two Random House limit- 
ed editions of the Lewis Carroll classic. 

The offering never claimed Dali made the 
plates, retorted Max Munn — whose Collec- 
tors' Guild initiated the offer — only that 

sisted the paper is "at least five years old" and that the signa- 
tures are real. Indeed, Dali signed several thousand blank 
sheets of paper before 1981, and the brochure says the Alice 
prints were printed on paper "signed by Salvador Dali before 
the lithographs were individually hand-pulled." Munn said 
he had bought signed paper "through an intermediary" 
from publisher Lyle Stuart — who denied knowledge of 
the transaction — and from Dali's printer in Spain. 

New York lawyer Robert Cinque has filed a 
copyright-infringement suit against Munn, 
American Express, and others on behalf of 
the company that bought the illustrations for 
the Alice book. Claimed Munn, "We have a 
contract signed by Mr. Dali authorizing us to 
do exactly what we did." Oberthur told New 
York Dali had no contract with Munn or his 
company. Still, American Express said it was 
actively defending the suit. Meanwhile, Dali 
archivist Albert Field said Munn's firm has 
approached him about offering four more 
Alice prints — "They said they'd pay me to say 
these were great works by Dali. I said I'd have 
to phone Spain to see if Dali had authorized 
them. They said there wasn't time for that." 
What about the bottom line? What are 

"from Salvador Dali's original [works] a master chromiste 
prepared the many individual color plates required." 

Also at issue is Dali's penciled signature. Stout said pre- 
liminary results of scientific analysis indicate the paper was 
made in mid- 1981. According to Jean Paul Oberthur, Dali's 
representative for reproductions worldwide, "Mr. Dali could 
not have signed such a large quantity of paper that year," a 
reference to the 80-year-old artist's failing health. Munn in- 

Alice print: What did Dali do? 

American Express's Alice prints worth? "Significantly" more 

than $975, Laurence Casper says in the brochure. But Aldis 
Browne, a member of the Art Dealers Association's print 
committee, contended, "These are lithographs by some arti- 
san who has copied them from Dali. Unframed, they're worth 
maybe $5 to $20 " plus the value of the signature, if genuine. 
Autograph dealer Charles Hamilton said that would increase 
the value to between $75 and $100. 

Mother Signs Best 

Ronald Reagan duped his fans, accord- 
ing to detective work by an autograph 
expert: His mother signed his name on letters 
and photos for thousands of admirers. 

"Nelle Reagan even signed Jane Wyman's 
name," said Herman Darvick, president of 
the Universal Autograph Collectors Club. 

Darvick said that he became suspicious 
when he noticed a strong resemblance be- 
tween the Wyman and Reagan handwritings, 
and that he subsequently located a 1942 
memo from an aide to Reagan's boss Jack 
Warner that revealed that young Ron had 
been paying Nelle $75 a week to conduct his 
fan correspondence. Then Darvick located 
the Reagan s' next-door neighbor in Dixon, Il- 
linois, who recalled that Nelle always reas- 
sured her friends that "Dixon people get au- 
thentic autographs not made by me."

Zilkha Loses Magazine 

Spurned by Sotheby's, the "21" club's 
Marshall Cogan finally has an art connec- 
tion. He's bought Art & Auction for his 
wife after what is said to have been a clash 
with its founder, Daniel Zilkha. 

Cogan, who bought a half-interest in the 
magazine for Maureen last summer, in- 
creased her stake to 97 percent this month, 
forcing out millionaire banker Zilkha, by one 
account. This source said, "Cogan was in a 
strong position because he'd pumped a lot of 
money in and got advertising up 70 percent." 

Zilkha called his exodus "amicable" and 
said he'll concentrate on another interest, the 
financial affairs of Indians in Maine. Pub- 
lisher Sam Cardonsky said, "We've been 
Knollized," referring to the sleek furniture 
company Cogan owns with Stephen Swid. 
"Daniel didn't want to put in the money the 
Cogans do. It was cause for some disgruntle- 
ment." Cogan's first move: a mass mailing to

The National Geographic is committed to 
revealing the world as it changes. It records the 
changes, large and small, and interprets them 
through all the informative arts in terms simple 
enough for a layman to understand, yet profound 
enough for a scientist to use as reference material. 

The Geographic covers subjects as diverse as 
rockets and rookeries, Vikings and volcanoes, 
computers and confections. Witness our recent 
chocographic exploration of the magic bean that 
nourishes not only mind and body but a 
multibillion dollar industry as well. We found 
that those who originally touted this irresistible 
mixture as an aphrodisiac may not have been far 
off. And, on a toothsome trip from the jungles of 
Africa and Brazil where cacao is grown to 
sophisticated factories in Europe and the United 
States tasting torrents of sweet brown delights 
along the way we found that we agree 
wholeheartedly with Linnaeus, who named the 
miracle bean Theobroma— "food of the gods." 

Our photo gra phic commitment is to show 
things that eyes haven't seen. Our photographers 
can and do spend weeks in the field waiting for 
the exact circumstances, the exact moment, for 
one singular shot. 

Our carto gra phic commitment is to update the 
changing face of the earth. Our maps are so 
precise, clear and informative that many of them 
have been used by the State Department in their 
embassies since the early 1930's. 

Our topogra phic commitment has led us to 
underwrite hundreds of investigations to explain 
the uncharted, remote places of the earth, while 
our oceano gra phic commitment has led us net 
only into supporting Jacques Yves Cousteau's early 
expeditions, but also into recent explorations of 
the deep-sea ocean floor along the Mid-Ocean 
Ridge, critical to our understanding of the 
movement of the earth's surface. 

The depth and diversity of the Geographic 
explain our extraordinary ps veho gra phic and 
demo gra phic profile. 35,000,000 people 
worldwide read the National Geographic every 
month. That includes 17% of all the adults in the 
United States, almost 30% of the college 
graduates. These people have an annual income 
close to $300,000,000,000 and they account for a 
major portion of the purchases of all American 
consumer goods. 

Who are they? They're educators, diplomats, 
world leaders, astronauts, working women, and 
the opinion makers of all ages. The adventurous, 
the curious, the knowledge-seekers. People who 
want to experience new ideas and new 

These people believe the Geographic. They 
trust it and respect it. They are fascinated by its 
subjects and awed by its scope. They read it. They 
talk about it. They save it. And they respond to it. 

It becomes almost an addiction. Like chocolate.

The Bottom Line/Dan Dorfman 


A $280-Billion Pot 


stock market is going higher, at least one 
big question remains: Where will the 
money come from? This year's rally, 
which has already pushed many stock 
prices up 30 to 40 percent in less than a 
month, has consumed huge amounts of 
cash. What's left out there to keep the 
rally going? 

In January alone, stocks grew in value 

much is available for equity investing, is 
that there's still a lot of money out there 
that can be converted into stocks — 
between $260 billion and $280 billion, ac- 
cording to estimates. And that excludes 
any foreign money. 

Let's look at where these numbers 
come from. To begin with, a frightened 
public, butchered on many new stock of- 
ferings over the past eighteen months, 
pulled an estimated $112 billion out of 
equities last year. And contrary to what 

ment firm in Minneapolis, figures that in- 
stitutions are generally holding about 52 
to 53 percent of their assets in equities, 
down from around 62 percent last year. 
That means, says Sit, that if institutions 
boosted their equity positions by just 5 
percent — which is not unreasonable, giv- 
en the favorable market climate — you 
could see the Dow climbing to 1,400 or 
1,450 very quickly. 

Money-market funds, with about $215- 
billion in assets, might also be tapped to 

High sights: James Marquez sees a 1,600 to 1,800 Dow by early next year; Charles Lewis thinks it will hit 1,420 in August. 

by almost $105 billion, with about $100- 
billion of the increase on the Big Board. 
That explosion has set off talk of the 
Dow's hitting 1,600 this year and possibly 
going as high as 1,800 in early 1986. Later 
on in this column, you'll meet three 
bulls — skilled money-makers all — with 
what they regard as super ideas on how 
to play the game. 

But these bulls, like a lot of others, 
have to contend with some troubling 
numbers from Indata, a closely tracked 
Southport, Connecticut, outfit that moni- 
tors over $100 billion of institutional 
equity holdings. In brief, Indata's num- 
bers show rapidly diminishing cash re- 
serves among the institutions, down now 
to just 6.7 percent of assets. That's close 
to the lowest level in two years and way 
below the level of last June.when the insti- 
tutional cash positions stood at close to 
12 percent. Since the institutional big- 
wigs have the most muscle to move mar- 
kets, the depleted cash reserves obviously 
raise doubts about the future vigor of 
stock prices. 

Still, there's a curious paradox: Those 
institutional cash reserves were only a bit 
higher — 7.6 percent — at the end of De- 
cember, and the market nonetheless rose 
sharply. What's going on? The explana- 
tion, judging from an analysis of just how 

you may have heard, the small investor 
has not been an aggressive participant in 
the current market rally. This is docu- 
mented by the folks at Merrill Lynch, 
who tell me that among retail buyers of 
stocks, those who put up all cash were 
net sellers of Big Board stocks every day 
in January. The trend was almost dupli- 
cated among the retail buyers who use 
margin (or credit) in their stock pur- 
chases, a group considered greater risk- 
takers. They bought more than they sold 
on only three days last month, and even 
on those days, the difference was small. 
The pattern held true on the American 
Stock Exchange, and, though public 
buying went on in the over-the-counter 
market, most of that took place early in 
January; in the last half of the month 
though, the rate of buying diminished. 

There's a message here: The public has 
so far remained skeptical. But that could 
have a bullish effect on the market, since 
it means there's at least $112 billion of 
untapped buying power out there among 
the small investors, and maybe a good 
deal more. 

The bond market represents another 
potential source of equity money — per- 
haps as much as $125 billion. Eugene Sit, 
the 46-year-old boss of Sit Investment 
Associates, a successful money-manage- 

make equity purchases. The bulk of this 
money— nearly $160 billion worth — is in 
public hands, and a lot of that is conser- 
vative, non-speculative money; in other 
words, it's not available for the stock 
market. Still, by some estimates, between 
$20 billion and $40 billion of the money- 
market cash could ultimately be with- 
drawn by institutional and public inves- 
tors to be put into equities. The week 
before last, nearly $2.8 billion came out 
of the money-market funds; obviously, 
those declining rates — recently under 8 
percent — are becoming less attractive. 

So, that accounts for $260 billion to 
$280 billion of potential equity money — 
enough, if you're an optimist, to make a 
case for a much higher market. But if you 
are an optimist, how do you play it? 
That's the question I put to our trio of 

First to Sit, who runs equity money for 
such corporations as General Dynamics, 
Boeing, and Ralston Purina. Sit says the 
United States has emerged as the loco- 
motive for worldwide economic growth. 
Accordingly, he adds, "we need above- 
average growth for the U.S. to get out of 
its deficit mess and to come to grips with 
the LDC problem," a reference to the 
$800 billion owed to the industrial world 
by the less developed countries. To Sit,

this means the Federal Reserve will 
maintain a policy of relatively stable 
rates. And that, in turn, adds up to the 
likelihood of a longer-than-normal run of 
economic expansion. (The current ex- 
pansion is already 27 months old.) "And 
since we have finally licked inflation," 
says Sit, "the Federal Reserve now has 
the flexibility to stimulate growth." 

Sit is usually optimistic, but also usual- 
ly on the money. He figures a 1,450 Dow 
is a good bet this year, given his bright 
economic scenario. But he believes a 
1,600 Dow is also a distinct possibility 
this year, provided the country gets its 
fiscal house in order. That condition 
would be met if the government enacted 
a program that included $30 billion to 
$45 billion in budget cuts and $10 billion 
to $15 billion in tax-revenue increases. 
Clearly, this would be quite a feat, but Sit 
thinks it's feasible. If it happens, he says, 
long-term rates would come down to 9 
percent, "and we'd get our 1 ,600 Dow." 

Sit continues to be excited about tech- 
nology, especially IBM. In fact, he thinks 
IBM should represent 5 to 6 percent of 
every portfolio. Data General and Inter- 
graph — a stock on which he's already 
made big money — are other technology 
favorites. Sit also likes specialty retailers, 
with Wal-Mart and the Limited, his top 
choices. Companies in the financial-serv- 
ices field, particularly American Express 
and Provident Life and Accident, also win 
Sit's endorsement. And if you can look 
down the road, Sit tells me, General Mo- 
tors and Ford are "very cheap stocks." 

James Marquez, 36, made a name for 
himself as a fund manager at Investors 
Diversified Services, the Minneapolis- 
based money-management giant. He's 
also a former portfolio manager at Citi- 
bank, and today, he manages his own 
money — it's in the seven figures — at the 
brokerage firm of Graber & Company. So 
far in 1985, he's up over 25 percent, he 
tells me. 

Thoughtful and often skeptical, Mar- 
quez is anything but skeptical about the 
market right now. His forecast: a leap in 
the Dow to between 1,600 and 1,800 by 
the first quarter of next year. Marquez 
points to low inflation and stable rates as 
the spark plugs of a business expansion 
that he believes could go on longer than 
most people anticipate. After a mild dose 
of profit taking, he expects the market to 
be off and running again. 

Another bullish catalyst cited by Mar- 
quez: a shortage of stocks. He estimates 
that between $80 billion and $90 billion 
worth of stocks disappeared last year as a 
result of takeovers, leveraged buy-outs, 
and companies' purchasing their own 
shares. He also argues that stocks are ba- 
sically dirt cheap — that even if they dou- 
bled in price from current levels they'd 
still be selling at 1965 prices, adjusted for 
inflation. So the pieces are in place for 
great new gains. 

How is Marquez playing the market? 
By downgrading the quality of his portfo- 
lio, he says. "You've got to go to the sec- 
ond- and third-tier levels; that's where 
the real values lie." Marquez figures the 
companies that have been tested by the 
economic slowdown and loss of access to 
capital — those that have survived and 
now possess good prospects — are the 
ones to own. In this context, he favors 
Texas Air and Republic Airlines. Mar- 
quez says this is the first time in three 
years that metals have looked good— not 
because of any price increases but rather 
because of the benefits to be gained from 
cost reductions. Inco and Phelps Dodge 
are his top choices. McLean Industries, 
a shipping company, is another Marquez 
favorite. The concept: a play on an im- 
proving worldwide economy. 

Our final bull is Charles M. Lewis, 54, 
a vice-president of Shearson Lehman/ 
American Express. Lewis has about 300 
clients, including both institutions and 
private investors; one is understood to be 
theatrical producer David Merrick. With 
a strong network of contacts — and with 
plenty of digging and reading — Lewis ex- 
cels in picking takeover targets. Last 
year, he made nineteen stock recommen- 
dations — all went up — including a num- 
ber of companies that were eventually 
acquired. Among the acquired firms 
were Electronic Data Systems, Petro- 
lane, Harris Bankcorp, and Carnation. 
The clients who participated in the nine- 
teen securities, from purchase to sale, 
averaged a 1984 gain of about 37 percent, 
says Lewis, a lanky, soft-spoken six- 

He tells me that the market should 
continue to be a winner as long as inter- 
est rates remain stable, and indeed, he 
expects the prime rate — the banks' best 
lending rate to its most creditworthy 
customers — to drop further, to the 9.75 
to 10.25 percent range, from its current 
10.5 percent. He looks for a Dow high 
this year of 1,420, which he believes will 
be achieved some time in August. 

Lewis's current strategy: Focus on the 
asset play, which he defines as shares 
selling well below their stated book val- 
ue. His favorite stock for 1985 is Wamer 
Communications. He sees a sharp earn- 
ings rebound, with profits running $2.25 
a share this year and $4.45 in 1986. And 
he predicts that the company, which is 
almost 30 percent owned by Chris-Craft 
Industries, will eventually be taken over 
by Chris-Craft. 

Other Lewis favorites: F.W. Woolworth, 
Safeway Stores, and CooperVision, each 
of which he expects to be taken over, and 
Gulf & Western and Ramada Inns. Gen- 
eral Motors Class E stock — that's what 
the holders of Electronic Data Systems 
received when the company was ac- 
quired last year by General Motors — is 
also viewed by Lewis as a big 1985 
number. hi

On Madison Avenue/Bernice Kanner 


Weighty Problem* 


on your New Year's resolution and OD 
on fudge brownies, February gets de- 
clared National Weight Loss Month. 

It's not enough that the second and 
traditionally most depressing month of 
the year is already host to Lincoln's and 
Washington's Birthdays, Valentine's Day, 
Ash Wednesday, Susan B. Anthony Day, 
Groundhog Day, and the Chinese New 
Year. No. The Thompson Medical Com- 
pany, the leading U.S. purveyor of over- 
the-counter appetite suppressants, has 
chosen February for a pound watch 
(we're not talking sterling) — and what it 
hopes will be a marketing coup for its 
products, which include Dexatrim diet 
pills, the Pritikin line of low-salt, low-fat 
foods, and Slim-Fast, a meal-replace- 
ment powder. 

Why February? "People are finished 
with the holidays and are buckling down 
to their New Year's resolutions — or slip- 
ping from them," says Don Lepone, vice- 
president for marketing at Thompson. 
"Also, doctors tell us that people eat 
more during the winter. And with spring 
and summer just around the corner, 
people are saying to themselves, 'I'm 
going to have to face that bathing suit 
again, so I'd better start losing weight 
now.' " 

The promotion, which kicks off a $30- 
million advertising campaign, and fea- 
tures millions of discount coupons and 
rebate offers, is perhaps the largest in 
the history of the diet-aid category. It 
aims to educate consumers about the 
dangers of fat and recruit into the 
Thompson fold those who are struggling 
with the scales. 

The universe of potential recruits is 
pleasingly plump. Some 10 million Amer- 
icans already use diet pills, and 40 mil- 
lion are fighting the battle of the bulge. 
Thirty million more should be — an esti- 
mated 70 million citizens are overweight. 
The American Cancer Society has found 
a clear relationship between obesity and 
mortality, and other studies have shown 
that it's second only to cigarette smoking 
as a major preventable cause of death in 
the United States. 
(P* All that calorie counting has been a 
" boon for "lite" and dietetic foods and for 
home-exercise gear such as the Lean Ma- 
chine. A. C. Nielsen has found that 46 
percent of all dieters read at least one 
book on the subject, and the Association 
of American Publishers notes that most 
current best-seller lists boast a minimum

of one or two diet books. Diet programs 
are all the rage. The Diet Center chain 
has 1,900 branches that offer "daily 
counseling and good personal follow- 
up." And diet pills are a S200-million 
market, as are meal replacements, a de- 
velopment so recent that no tracking 
service is yet following it. 

It's safe to assume, however, that the 
same weight-conscious folks who pop 
diet pills (which don't actually make you 
lose weight but simply decrease the sen- 
sation of hunger and reduce the craving 
for food) are prime candidates for meal 
replacements. These people cannot be 
categorized geographically, racially, or 
by size of income or family, but rather by 
gender Ninety percent of the target au- 
dience are women 18 to 49. 

To reach them with word of the won- 
ders of Dexatrim — regular, extra 
strength, Dexatrim Plus Vitamins, and 
longer-lasting Dexatrim 15 (it wards off 
hunger pangs for up to fifteen hours) — 
Thompson relies on user testimonials 
drawn from 12,000 letters a year, as well 
as on surveys from American Druggist 
and Pharmacy Times showing that phar- 
macists recommend Dexatrim more than 
any other diet aid. Indeed, drug chains 
accounted for 44 percent of all diet-aid 
sales in 1983, suggesting that the prod- 
ucts sell better in the presence of a 

Thompson took to the airwaves in 
1979, the year it went public. In its first 

ad, a slender woman at the beach with 
her son says, "The most impressive thing 
about Dexatrim is that I could lose 
weight without going hungry." Because 
the company can feature only dieters 
who have lost one and a half to two 
pounds a week over twelve weeks (in ac- 
cordance with the claims and data it sub- 
mitted to the Food and Drug Administra- 
tion), the Warren, Ohio, cashier who 
went from 192 to 106 pounds in 29 weeks 
didn't make it. Neither did the deputy 
assessor from Illinois who shed 87 
pounds in 36 weeks, or the California se- 
curity guard who dropped 26 pounds in a 
month, believing that "you can never be 
too thin or too rich." 

A commercial for Ciba-Geigy's Acu- 
trim, a fledgling competitor with ap- 
proximately 12 percent of the market, 
shows a woman on a sofa experiencing a 
hunger attack so powerful it propels her 
through the air toward her fridge — inside 
of it, a pulsating strawberry cheesecake. 
While we don't actually see her pop an 
Acutrim (that would be a Federal Trade 
Commission no-no), we do see her sud- 
denly calm and in control, able to resist 
the call of the calories. 

Though giant competitors have 
flocked to the market, Thompson has 
prevailed. Menley & James came out 
with Dietac in 1979, and Lederle tested 
Dyna-Trim and American Home Pro- 
ducts introduced Diet Gard in 1 981. To- 
day, only Dietac is a factor in the

marketplace. Why? Thompson chairman 
S. Daniel Abraham, a man known for 
quizzing passersby on the street about 
their packaging preferences, claims that 
his company "has been in the market 
longest and has more experience in ad- 
vertising and talking to dieting con- 
sumers than any other company. We 
spend more money reaching them and 
more hours listening to them. Like a lot 
of smaller guys, we try harder." 

The diet shelves have been stocked 
with fad formulas from Scarsdale to Bev- 
erly Hills. Perhaps the first in recent 
memory was Mead Johnson's Metrecal. 
Introduced in 1959, it was a meal-re- 
placement powder that, when mixed with 
water, tasted pretty much like powder 
mixed with water" — but packed just 900 
calories a day. As it became a dazzling 
success, it inspired imitators and was of- 
fered in liquid, wafer, and prepared-din- 
ner form, and even as soup. 

By 1977, except for its cookie, Metrecal 
had wasted away, its manufacturer blam- 
ing consumer boredom, a shift in tastes 
from liquid to solid diet aids, and the 
1969 ban on cyclamates. Mead Johnson 
could also have blamed the host of rival 
manufacturers who sought to cash in on 
the weight watch. In 1963, Pet introduced 
Sego with advertising that touted its su- 
perior flavor. Soon it had 50 percent of 
the market. And when Carnation discov- 
ered that waistline watchers were using 
its Instant Breakfast as a diet aid, the 
company lowered the product's calorie 
count, christened it Slender, distributed 
samples to 20 million homes — and spent 
a king's ransom spreading the word. 
(Last year, Carnation introduced its suc- 
cessful Do-It- Yourself Diet Plan, a meal 
replacement.) In 1972, after its research 
showed that the way to a dieter's pocket- 
book was through his sweet tooth, Pills- 
bury brought out Figurines, diet bars that 
dominated the girth-control market in 
the mid to late seventies. 

The industry didn't get a black eye un- 
til the late seventies, when 59 deaths at- 
tributed to liquid protein forced that 
product off the market. The high-flying 
Cambridge Diet crashed as well. Named 
for the university affiliation of the chem- 
ist who developed it, the diet plan offered 
three "nutritionally balanced" liquid 
meals a day totaling 330 calories — a level 
of energy intake akin to semi-starvation. 
After the Postal Service charged that ad- 
vertising claims about the product's safe- 
ty were unsubstantiated, the company 
trained Cambridge dieters to be "nutri- 
tion counselors" — i.e., commissioned 
salesmen. But in 1983, the diet — which 
was licensed by a California couple who 
also operated the Mark Eden mail-order 
bust-developing program — filed for 

Thompson saw a marketing opportuni- 
ty to mass-distribute a similar product at 
about half the price and, in 1977, came

out with Slim-Fast, a powder that, when 
mixed with skim milk, takes the place of 
one or more meals a day. Like most meal 
replacements, it contains vitamins, min- 
erals, protein, fiber, and bran. 

Most appetite suppressants, on the 
other hand, rely on phenylpropanola- 
mine (PPA), the active ingredient in 
many nasal decongestants. (In 1939, a 
Cincinnati doctor had reported in the 
Cincinnati Journal of Medicine that in us- 
ing PPA to treat patients who had stuffed 
noses, he found their appetites had 
waned. No one pounced on this discov- 
ery until the seventies, when Thompson 
began researching the compound.) To 
satisfy the FDA's requirement of two 
double-blind studies, and to calm con- 
sumer and medical groups' fears about 
PPA's safety and efficacy (specifically, 
that it raised blood pressure and pulse 
rate, altered mood, and was associated 
with kidney failure, stroke, psychotic 
reactions, and other complications), 
Thompson submitted more than a dozen 
tests on humans, monkeys, and rats. 

Still, not all of the medical communi- 
ty's feathers have been smoothed. Dr. 
Theodore Vanltallie, director of the Obe- 
sity Research Center at St. Luke's Roose- 
velt Hospital Center, notes that "the pub- 
lic takes billions of appetite suppressants 
each year. No one knows the actual im- 
pact of these drugs on weight. They're 
not dangerous if taken as directed, but 
people may use them inappropriately. 
The risk is that people will depend on 
them wholly, not as an adjunct to 
changes in their life-style and eating be- 
havior, the cornerstone of weight con- 
trol." And Dr. Norman Brachfeld, a car- 
diologist and expert on obesity, claims 
that diet pills are "potentially dangerous 
in that they can stimulate heart rate and 
increase blood pressure. The key to 
weight control is a decrease in caloric in- 
take and an increase in physical activity." 

Convinced of the safety of PPA (an 
FDA panel has recommended its approv- 
al), Thompson introduced its first appe- 
tite suppressant, Appedrine — a three- 
times-a-day tablet— in 1974. Caffeine was 
added to counter the lethargic effects of 
dieting. The following year, the company 
came out with Prolamine, a longer-last- 
ing, twice-a-day timed-release capsule. 
In 1976, after focus groups had persuad- 
ed Thompson that dieters wanted a still 
longer-lasting curb, it introduced twelve- 
hour Dexatrim, a product that, today, ac- 
counts for 55 percent of all appetite- 
suppressant sales. And in 1980, the 
company brought out Control, the first 
decaffeinated diet aid. (Subsequently, 
Thompson took the caffeine out of Dex- 

All these products are impressive, but 
I'm afraid they just don't do the trick for 
me. When it comes to an appetite sup- 
pressant, I'd rather have a coffee-ice- 
cream hot-fudge sundae any day.

Will the Aid Resume? 

wanted: sophisticated and patriotic 
investors to purchase interest-bearing 
bonds to finance the counterrevolution- 
aries currently battling the Sandinistas, 
who rule Nicaragua. 

Believe it or not, a version of this ap- 
peal may soon appear in the United 
States and abroad. Ever since Congress 
suspended CIA funding of the contra 
war, the rebels have been hurting. In the 
north of Nicaragua, where the main con- 
tra force operates from base camps 
across the border in Honduras, ammuni- 
tion is at a premium — each soldier is per- 
mitted to fire only five slugs a day. In the 
south, Eden Pastora, the legendary 
Commander Zero, has thousands of 
mouths to feed and $60 in the bank. Re- 
cent efforts to unify the two contra 
groups in order to attract more Ameri- 
can support failed miserably. At meet- 
ings in Miami last week, Pastora again re- 
fused to join with the northern forces as 
long as former cronies of the late dictator 
Anastasio Somoza remained in promi- 
nent positions. 

The question of Central America is 
again moving to the forefront in Wash- 
ington. The battles over the defense 
budget and tax simplification will con- 
tinue long after some crucial decisions 
concerning Central America are taken. 
The most significant of these concerns 
the contras. Sometime next month, the 

Reagan administration will probably ask 
Congress to release $14 million in sup- 
posedly covert aid for the guerrillas. The 
prospects for that release are dim. Even 
Richard Lugar, the Republican chairman 
of the Senate Foreign Relations Commit- 
tee, describes the White House proposal 
as "not viable at this time." If Lugar's 
prognosis doesn't improve, the adminis- 
tration may request funds for the families 
of the contras, a contingency already 
dubbed the "aid for dependent contras" 

"Assuming we don't get the $14 mil- 
lion from Congress," says a contra 
leader, "we really are seriously consider- 
ing floating a bond issue. It would be like 
Israel bonds [which are sold primarily to 
Jewish supporters of Israel living in 
America and Western Europe]. It won't 
be a broad public issue. Our audience is 
the people who believe in our cause." 
They'd better believe in it; the chances 
for repayment are laughable. 

Not so laughable is the administra- 
tion's overall Central America policy, 
which continues in disarray. Depending 
on whom you talk to.Washington either is 
interested in simply interdicting the flow 
of arms from Nicaragua to El Salvador or 
is actually out to topple the Sandinista 
regime. The president is of little help. 
When he declares the goal to be the res- 
toration of "democratic rule" to Nicara- 
gua, his words are read by many as a eu- 
phemism for ousting the Managua 

government. It is largely this confusion 
concerning the administration's true ob- 
jectives that is driving the congressional 
critics. Unless and until a clear course is 
defined, Reagan will encounter resis- 
tance whenever Nicaragua is debated. 

Equally troubling is Washington's 
stance on the Contadora peace process, a 
regional attempt to draft a treaty under 
which the Sandinistas would end their 
support for the guerrillas in El Salvador 
in exchange for America's calling off the 
contras. As of now, Contadora is stalled, 
primarily because the administration's 
foreign-policy architects refuse to believe 
that any agreement signed by the Sandi- 
nistas could be worth anything. 

There is something to this hard-line 
view; it is not merely paranoia. The San- 
dinistas see themselves as part of — in- 
deed, as the leaders of — a regionwide 
upheaval. "The revolution's moral im- 
perative and historical character," says 
Tomfls Borge, the Managua govern- 
ment's strongman, "make it inevitable 
that the energies released here will be 
universal in all Central America." In 
other words, says another comandante, 
"we will never give up supporting our 
brothers in El Salvador." 

Maybe they will and maybe they won't. 
The important points to keep in mind are 
these: First, the Sandinistas are dead seri- 
ous about their perceived historical role, 
and second, military pressure is, unfortu- 
nately, the only proven way to win 
concessions from such zealots. The ques- 
tion, as usual, is a matter of degree. 

Inside Nicaragua, meanwhile, the gov- 
ernment headed by Daniel Ortega is in- 
creasingly repressive, and economic 
hardship is widespread. Here is the testi- 
mony of the Carnegie Endowment's Rob- 
ert Leiken, a veteran and articulate critic 
of America's Nicaragua policy: "The 
shortage of basic necessities is . . . breed- 
ing pervasive corruption," says Leiken. 
"Party members . . . dine at luxury res- 
taurants restricted to party officials and 
vacation in the mansions of the Somoza 
dynasty There is a general impres- 
sion [in the outside world] . . . that the 
Sandinistas are the victims, not the victim- 
izers. Inside Nicaragua, however, the 
image is reversed. The word Nicaraguans 
employ the most frequently to describe 
the Sandinista government is engaho 
(hoax or trick)." 

The ostensible reason for Ronald Rea- 
gan's obsession with the Sandinistas is El 
Salvador, a country he has sworn will 
never fall to Communism on his watch. 
To a considerable extent, the administra-

tion's El Salvador policy has been vindi- 
cated. The very election of President Josd 
Napole6n Duarte, a true democrat who 
has already curbed the death squads, 
would not have been possible if the ad- 
ministration had followed the advice of 
those congressmen who sought to make 
military aid to the Salvadoran govern- 
ment contingent on the opening of ne- 
gotiations with the guerrillas, talks they 
hoped would lead to "power sharing." 
Duarte, in fact, has now begun a dia- 
logue with the guerrillas, but the talks 
have bogged down. "Neither side," says a 
Duarte aide, "feels weak enough to give 
ground." The war, it seems, is still stale- 
mated. The Salvadoran army predicts 
victory in 1985 — just as it has predicted 
victory before. 

If anything, the military situation is 
cause for concern. The famous "National 
Plan," a program to secure selected areas 
by driving out the guerrillas and then im- 
proving the economic climate, is all but 
disregarded, a panacea that never took 
hold. The latest program, "Project 
1,000," is an attempt to resettle thou- 
sands of homeless Salvadorans in com- 
munities fortified against guerrilla pene- 
tration. No one should be surprised if 
"Project 1,000," eerily reminiscent of the 
"strategic hamlet" program in Vietnam, 
fails, too. 

The crux of the problem is simple: The 
Salvadoran army alone cannot defend 
the majority of the nation's population. 
A strong civil defense must function as 
well. But many Salvadoran peasants view 
the government's plans for civilian mili- 
tias as little more than municipal suicide. 
Most villagers, eager only to survive and 
work their land, have reached an under- 
standing with the guerrillas: "If we go to 
the fields as neutrals," the mayor of 
Santa Clara told the Los Angeles Times, 
"the guerrillas leave us alone. If they 
know we are members of civil defense, 
they will pick us off one by one." This 
seems to be a near-universal perception. 
In one province, Chalatenango, only 3 of 
the 33 municipalities recently urged to 
adopt civil -defense plans have agreed to 
do so. 

An experience last fall in La Libertad 
province appears to be influencing the 
population's lack of response: Three civil- 
defense outposts were overrun by the 
guerrillas. A major army post was just six 
miles away, but reinforcements failed to 
appear for more than a day. Fifty-four 
militiamen died. 

Given this reality, a "fact on the 
ground" as Ariel Sharon would say, it is 
no wonder the Salvadoran rebels aren't 
eager to negotiate seriously. They nego- 
tiate for the propaganda value but re- 
main combatants. They have expertly 
adopted the old Vietcong rule for guer- 
rilla warfare: Danh va dam, dam va 
dark — "Fighting and talking, talking 
and fighting." m

Unleashed Passions 


Department officers in 
Central Park tried to give a 
ticket to a woman who had 

been letting her dog run off 
the leash. "Name please," 
they said. "Mary Poppins," 
she answered. The woman 

didn't give her real name 
until the officers threatened 
to take her to the precinct. 

Such extreme evasions are 
not unusual for owners 
trying to dodge the city's $50 
fine for letting a dog off the 
leash. The law, which 
is meant to keep 

pedestrians safe, has made a 
lot of pet owners pettish. 

"I think it's a ridiculous 
law," said Henny Sender, a 
reporter for Reuters whose 
black, aristocratic-looking 
mutt, Faber, was trotting 
leashless through Central 
Park the other Sunday. "I 
mean, $50 is a lot of money 
for letting a dog that is not 
vicious run free. I've seen the 
sweetest-looking old men 
just blatantly lying to the 
officers to get out of the fine 
for their dogs." 

Though giving a phony 
name is the most common 
way to avoid a ticket, some 
owners have come up with 
more imaginative strategies. 
Recently, a man was able to 
elude officers because his 
two male huskies were 
trained to dash out of the 
park when he whistled. 
Another man let his dog run 
alongside his car, and when 
officers approached, the man 
whistled for the dog to get 
back in the car and sped

of lengths," said Maura 
Wrynn, a spokeswoman for

shaking his head. "Seems like most New 
York movies — " "Never leave 
Bloomingdale's," says Denis's brother John, 
completing the thought. "Sometimes," John 
adds, "I wonder if Hollywood knows

anything about this town." 

There's no mistaking the kind of 
knowledge at the heart of Turk 182! the 
movie written by Denis and John Hamill, 
former reporters who now write scripts not 
quite in the Hollywood mold. Turk, their 
first, opens this week and stars Timothy 
Hutton as a Brooklyn kid who takes on the 
mayor after his brother, a fireman crippled 
while saving a life, is denied his pension 
because he was drunk at the time. 

Turk is full of the brotherly codes and 
shorthand dear to John and Denis, who 
grew up in Park Slope with five other Hamill 
children. Billy Hamill, their father, taught his 
kids to prefer books to movies, and movies to 
TV. Pete Hamill, the oldest, was also the first 

to earn a living with his typewriter, and his 
influence on John and Denis was keen. "If 
your big brother's a fireman, you grow up 
wanting to be a fireman," says John. "Pete 
was a writer." 

John, now 35, spent a year in Vietnam as a 
medic, worked as a reporter for 
a small weekly called Flatbush 
Life, and moved on to the Daily 
News. Denis, 33, started at the 
same Flatbush paper ("It was 
our underground railroad"), 
went on to the Village Voice, 
and eventually wrote columns 
for the Los Angeles Herald- 
Examiner and the Boston 
Herald-American. As reporters, 
each developed an eye for 
street detail: Covering looters 
during the 1977 blackout, they 
noticed that "the men stole 
meat, but the women went 
straight for the Pampers." 
Since 1982, they've lived just 

blocks apart in Windsor 

Terrace — John with his wife, Denis with his 
wife and three kids. The brothers escape to a 
nearby office that was once a fruit shop, or 
head down the street to "research" at 
Farrell's, an Irish bar much like the one in 
Turk. They recently finished a script called 
Critical Condition, about a hospital during a 
blackout, and are writing a police comedy for 
MGM and a murder mystery for producer 
Leonard Goldberg. 

Movie people "get a kick out of the fact 
we're still in Brooklyn," says John, but 
staying close to home keeps them happy and 
honest. "We could never 'go Hollywood,'" 
says Denis, "because we don't like living 
there. Besides, the stuff we write about comes 
from here." Eric Pooley

them in the mail — small 
cardboard boxes that held 
even smaller blue-and-gold 
boxes. Inside those boxes 
were blue capsules. When 
dropped into hot water, the 
capsules sank to the bottom, 
fizzed, and then released a 
message on cellophane that 
said: "area Retrospective 
Wednesday January 30th 9:00 
cocktails." Surprising, 
exciting? Not really; it was, 
after all, just another 
invitation to Area. 

Many of the 500 people 
knew what they were in for 
when that box arrived (the 
other 4,500 people on Area's 
mailing list received simple 
printed invitations), because 
the blue pill was a reprise of 
the one Area sent out for its 
opening, in September 1983. 
The new version announced 
a collage of Area's "themes," 
which change every six 
weeks. And why should

hollowed-out eggs (for 
Natural History) be surprised 
by a little blue pill? 

Although Area's 
invitations tend to be the 
most elaborate, the city's 
other clubs are nearly as 
inventive. Limelight, the 
disco in a renovated church 
at Sixth Avenue and 20th 
Street, sent out red 
firecrackers for a party 
following the Jacksons 
concert last August 5, and 
white church candles (which 

cost $1.75 each to mail) for 
its first anniversary. Private 
Eyes on West 21st Street 
mailed foam-rubber TVs as 
opening announcements, and 
Kamikaze on West 1 9th 
Street sent out red-white- 
and-blue silk scarves for its 
Pretend to Be French party. 

And the numbers are just 
as inspiring: Area sends out 
5,000 to 20,000 invitations a 
week, Limelight almost 
10,000, Danceteria on West 
21st Street 10,000 to 15,000, 
Kamikaze close to 7,000, and 
Private Eyes 3,500 to 10,000. 

Rudolf, Danceteria's 
manager, calls his mailing list 
"the core of the club." He 
stores 44 groupings on the 
club's computer. Among 
them are lists for typical East 
Village types, artists and 
collectors, early-Studio 54 
types, and gays ("Every club 
has to have a gay list"). "A 
Wasp-party invitation," 
Rudolf says, "is not going to 
be sent to Mohicans." 

Limelight's list is 
subdivided into artsy 
downtown, Upper East and 
West Sides, and literary. 
Kamikaze has ten categories, 
including A, B, and C art- 
crowd lists and a yuppie list. 

The invitation boom 
seems to have caught on 
about two years ago — partly 
because clubs advertise 
sporadically (according to 
Joe Dolce of Area, the club's 
ads are "purely status 
advertising") and partly 

because New Yorkers began 
to yawn when they got yet 
another plain invitation with 
a celebrity's name at the top. 

"People are less naive 
nowadays," says Rudolf. 
"There has to be more than a 
celebrity inviting them — the 
real club-goers don't care 
about celebrities." 

And so, the knickknacks 
and the toys fly through the 
mail: a fake London-to- 
Hollywood airplane ticket 
(for a Frankie Goes to 
Hollywood party); flash 
paper and matches (for 
Elements at Area); a wedding 
invitation (for a party in 
Madonna's honor at Private 
Eyes). But nobody seems to 
know whether the outlandish 
invitations work. "People get 
as many as ten invites a day, 
and it's hard to tell which 
ones are effective," says Steve 
Sukman, vice-president of 
Private Eyes. "But I think the 
only time you have to do an 
excellent invitation is for a 
boring party." Amy Virshup

Chroma Cards — a 
neighborhood favorite — was 
facing eviction from the 
Chrysler Building ("Fast 
Track," December 10, 1984). 
JKC Realty, the landlord, had 
charged that a display of 
beefcake cards and calendars 
was pornographic, violating 
the terms of Chroma's 
fifteen-year lease, which has

thirteen years left on it. 

But JKC's petition for 
eviction was dismissed two 
weeks ago, and Chroma will 
be able to stay in the Chrysler 
Building. "The judge said our 
display wasn't pornographic 
by any stretch of the 
imagination," said David 
Heer owner of the store and 
its three branches. 

Heer said the case "sort of 

restores your faith in the 
system." But he worries that

Bolden called as he walked 
into Bloomingdale's food 
department. Five garbage 
bags stuffed with yesterday's 
food — fruit-filled croissants, 
fancy folded pastries, and 
long loaves of French 
bread — were waiting for 
Bolden and his partner, 
Anthony Chatman. 

"They like to give us the

For the past three years, 
the owners of some of the 
city's top gourmet shops have 
been donating their unsold 
food to City Harvest (349- 
4004), which, in turn, gives 
the food to agencies that feed 

the hungry. City Harvest 
workers collect and 
distribute an average of 8,000 
pounds of food a day. 

Though most contributions 
are made by food retailers, 
City Harvest accepts edible 
contributions — from 5 to 
5,000 pounds — of all kinds: 
food a film studio used for a 
commercial, food confiscated 
by the police, food left over 
from a party. 

This day, the donors 
included Mangia, Sachs & 
Home, Fisher & Levy, Savoy, 
and La Boulange. Bolden and 
Chatman collected food in a 
bright-yellow van until the 
storage area was crammed 
with 24 bags of food. 

"It's a light day," said 



"And then we found this unspoilt little place where they still do perfect 
nouvelle cuisine."

homeless men had already 
gathered outside. Food 
also went to the Cathedral 
Kitchen of St. John the 
Divine, and to the St. 
Nicholas Senior Citizen's 
Center in Harlem. 

Helen VerDuin Palit got 
the idea for City Harvest in 
July 1 981 . The director of a 
New Haven soup kitchen, 
she was having trouble 
feeding everyone who 
wanted a meal. So she asked 
local shops to donate surplus 
food. The request paid off: In 
a few months, the soup 
kitchen was serving not only 
soups but chef salads, 
casseroles, and desserts. In 
December 1982, she opened 
the New York version of City 

"It worked so well in New 
Haven, I knew it had to work 
in New York," said Palit. She 
pointed out that a program 
such as City Harvest is an 
obvious solution to hunger in 
a society that wastes one fifth 
of its food. 

The contributions are tax 
deductible, but not 
everybody thinks it's right to 
take advantage of this. "It's 
my little form of charity to 
the world," said Marc 
Spector, an owner of A Bagel 
Store & More, which donates 
close to 1 ,500 bagels a week. 
"I don't expect a tax 
deduction when I give a 
dollar to a homeless man on 
the street. That's not the 
reason for charity."

rang- 1 picked up the receiver and heard 
a voice that was tense and fearful. As I 
recall, the conversation went like this: 
"Myra, this is Bernie." 
"Bernie who?" 
"Bernie Goetz." 

"Bernie, what in the world . . . ?" 
"Listen, can you rent a car?" 
"Rent a car? What are you talking about?" 
"Do you know where Route 95 is to Connect- 

"Connecticut! What are you talking about?" 

"Please, just listen to me. You can get a map and 
figure it out. Route 95. Take Route 95 to Connecti- 
cut, go off at Exit 6, and meet me at the Howard 
Johnson's there with a couple of the Guardian An- 
gels and a tape recorder." 

For a moment, there was only silence. I thought 
of the ongoing manhunt for the "Death Wish Vigi- 
lante." He had been described as tall, lanky, and 
blond, with a thin face and wire-rimmed glasses. 
This description fit 37-year-old Bernhard Goetz 
perfectly. My stomach churned. 

"You? My God!" I said. 

"Yes," he said. 

"Where in the world am I going to find Guard- 
ian Angels?" 

"I think they're picketing the mayor's man- 

"Bemie, my God, I've got to go to the bathroom. 
Do you want to hold on?" 

"No, no. I'll call back." 

"Just give me three minutes." 

"Well, I'll give you five." 

I hung up. I remember feeling stunned and 
wondering if Bernie was having some sort of fan- 
tasy. I also wondered if he was not having some 
sort of fantasy and, if he was not, why he had cho- 
sen to call me. We had lived in the same building 
on West 14th Street for six years, but at least as I 
saw it, we were hardly the closest of friends. 

Yet for reasons I still do not fully understand, I 
was the only person Bernie Goetz contacted. We 
spoke four times in three days, and he was, by 
turns, frightened, sickened, confused, ashamed, 
and outraged. He verged on tears several times. 
He laughed twice. He said that the four young 
men he had shot had not actually robbed him. 
They had shown what to him were unmistakable 
"signs" that they intended to attack. He said that 
one had thrust his hand into his pocket to indicate 
that he had a weapon. 

"I saw what was going to happen," Bernie said. 
"And I snapped." 

Bernie said that he had been forced to pull his 
gun on two previous occasions and had not fired. 
He said he did not want to be considered a hero 
and that he was not interested in fame or money. 
His primary concern seemed to be his privacy. He 
said he simply desired to resume a "normal life," 
and he appeared to believe this was actually possi- 
ble. I realized that whatever crimes Bernie Goetz 
may or may not have committed he was in some 
bizarre way an innocent soul. 

"I just want to be left alone," he said. 

Until Bernie Goetz awakened me with that first 
phone call, ours was a relationship of hundreds of 
brief encounters. We both worked at home and 
often took breaks in the lobby. He seemed intense 

Photographs: left. Robert Maass'Photore porters; right, Chns Morris' Black Star. 

and hyperkinetic, and he had an obsessive nature 
that appeared appropriate for an engineer who 
specialized in calibrating electronic equipment. 
He walked astonishingly fast. Often, his hands 
were clenched as he scurried through the build- 
ing. While I never heard him raise his voice, I 
sensed a tension in his speech and gestures. There 
was nothing remarkable about his mild green 
eyes. He was unfailingly proper and polite. 

For several years, Bernie lived in an apartment 
facing 14th Street. He then moved into a quieter 
one-bedroom flat in the rear, directly above my 
own. The previous tenant had been a rather bois- 
terous sex-show producer, and I was delighted to 
have Bernie replace him. Bernie covered his win- 
dows with stained glass, which gave the place a 
curious religious feeling. The rooms were sparsely 
furnished. The few pieces he did have were re- 
markable, and he appeared very pleased when I 
admired a massive mahogany chest he had inherit- 
ed. Everything was orderly and clean. 

When Bernie left the cathedral-lit sanctuary of 
his apartment and passed through the lobby, he 
found himself on a littered street of drug dealers 
and tawdry bargain stores. Junkies nodded out 
under the building's awning. Once, he stopped to 
peer curiously into a shopping cart full of rags and 
papers. A bag lady called for the police and ac- 
cused him of theft. All of this chaos seemed to be 
too much for Bernie, and he found a focus for his 
obsessive nature in cleaning up 14th Street. 

Because I was a member of the block associ- 
ation, Bernie constantly pursued me through the 
halls with new ideas. I would be rushing off to an 
appointment, and he would corner me in the 
lobby to suggest a city ordinance mandating the 
cleaning of all buildings every twenty years. I 
would be returning with a take-out lunch, starv- 
ing, and he would whip out a document about 
street peddlers. 

"Bernie, I have to go," I would say. 

"Myra, it'll just be a minute," he would say. 

For months, Bernie badgered various city agen- 
cies to remove an abandoned newsstand on the 
corner. The structure continued to be used by 
drug dealers as a trash bin, urinal, and leaning 
post. One night, the issue was settled by a fire. 
There were rumors that Bernie was the torch. I 
can only say that he cleared away the debris and 
swept up the cinders. 

The other troubles of 14th Street remained. Peo- 
ple in the building who had always considered 
themselves to be liberal began expressing some 
surprising sentiments. Bernie was one of these 
people. At a community meeting, I heard him say, 
"The only way we're going to clean up this street is 
to get rid of the spies and niggers." I was shocked 
to hear a man whom I knew to have close black 
and Hispanic friends talk this way, and I said, "I'm 
getting out of here." Later, somebody close to Ber- 
nie for many years suggested that he used an occa- 
sional racial epithet just to shock. 

"So he would go to the extreme of saying 'nig- 
ger' and 'spic' just to get the liberals wild, because 
he's pissed at them," the friend, Paul Barbuto, 
says. "He can also say the city government needs 
to be doing something for black kids. That's 

In 1 981 , Bernie was mugged by three black teen- 
agers in the Canal Street subway station. He

under the 

fought with one of the attackers until police ap- 
peared. The attacker claimed Bernie had assaulted 
him. The mugger was released in two and a half 
hours. Bernie was detained for six. He never dis- 
cussed the incident with me. He regarded the 
building staff almost as family, and he did confide 
in a doorman. 

"He was laughing, but not really," the doorman 
said to me. 

Bernie returned to his immaculate apartment 
with permanent damage to cartilage in his chest. I 
did not know that he later saw his attacker robbing 
a couple. I only later learned that he tried, unsuc- 
cessfully, to secure a pistol permit. I did not notice 
any change in him at all. He continued to scurry 
after me with petitions and to pester me to support 
yet another plan. 

Quietly, Bernie paid $200 out of his own pocket 
to have an unsightly placard removed from the 
building canopy. He spent another $300 for litter 
bins. He bought a chair to replace one at the front 
desk that squeaked, and he served for a time as 
treasurer of the tenants' association. Yet he 
seemed to shy away from block-association meet- 
ings. With all his passion for the neighborhood, he 
somehow remained a loner, a community-minded 
man uncomfortable with community. 

Often, I saw Bernie playing with children in the 
lobby. He would lift a child and laugh and seem 
momentarily at peace. He appeared far less at ease 
with his adult neighbors. In the midst of a conver- 
sation, he would sometimes abruptly whirl around 
and march away. He had apparently said all he 
wanted to say. One day, he visited a man on the 
tenth floor who was playing a recording at low vol- 
ume. Without a word, Bernie went over and 
turned off the stereo. While I was not alone in re- 
taining an odd affection for Bernie, I was also not 
the only one who found his eccentricities trying. 

"You know," I would say to one of the men at 
the front desk. "That guy is going to drive me

M asked if I could meet him at the 
M Howard Johnson's off Route 95. He 
m said he would call again in five min- 

-^■a^- utes. The phone rang at precisely 
the appointed moment. I am a 
writer. I had done a biography of 
Janis Joplin titled Buried Alive and was working on 
another book. I had no doubt that I was in the 
midst of a remarkable story. Without a second 
thought, and without telling Bernie, I flicked on 
the tape recorder, which happened to be next to 
my phone. Bernie's voice had a tremor, and his 
sentences were punctuated with sighs. 

Bernie: Now that I think about this, I'm going to 
come to New York tomorrow. So you don't have 
to drive up here. If you want, we can talk about 
this for a few minutes, and I just have to ask you a 
favor. Why don't you just forget this conversation 
ever took place. 

Me: I'm not going to do anything to hurt you, I 
promise you that. But I would like you to be a 
little, you're not being as coherent as you are 
usually prone to be. 

B: How can you understand these things? It's, 
it's, it's, I'll tell you what, listen, probably, well, 


not probably, but I have a good possibility of per- 
haps being able to live a normal life. So, look, what 
I'm gonna do is, I'm gonna ask you a favor. Please, 
tell no one ever about this. I'll come in to New 
York tomorrow. If you wanna talk to me for a few 
minutes tomorrow, I'll be in my apartment, but 
maybe, just maybe, I can get away with it. 

M: Bernie, can you tell me what happened? 

B: Myra, you don't understand. Listen, and this 
is what it amounts to in this situation. I have pro- 
tection with the truth, and I have protection with 

silence. Okay? Either one Myra, you weren't in 

the situation, and what is important to me is what 
is right and what is wrong. And I'm not even going 
to say that what I did was right or wrong. ... I 
mean, that, to me, is a real issue. And what I'm 
going to be judged on are technicalities, and that's 

a farce You see, it appears to everyone that I 

was right. Fine. Okay. If they want to reach that 
conclusion. Maybe they're right, maybe they're 
wrong. I don't think people can say that. I think 
those four guys know if I was right or wrong! 

M: What do you think? 

B: What do you think I think? Myra, do you 
think that I was looking for that? 

M: No. 

B: Myra, I responded viciously and savagely. It's 
a state of mind that you're not familiar with. If you 
corner a rat and you are about to butcher it, okay? 
The way I responded was viciously and savagely, 
just like that, just like a rat. Now, the city, they can 
drag me through the dirt by showing how savage 
and vicious I was and by not releasing the whole 
truth, even on the technical things that hap- 
pened. ... I know the truth. Those guys know the 
truth. The people are looking for an easy answer. 
They're looking for a good guy defending himself, 
or a Clint Eastwood. Or if they want to condemn 
it, they're looking for someone who was looking 
for trouble. Or they can say, "Well, this person is 
crazy. " Or they can say this person was uncivilized. 
Can you believe that, Myra! I heard some attorney 
from the Civil Liberties Union on television yester- 
day saying that I responded in an uncivilized way. 
Like he knows what went on. It's unbelievable! . . . 
Most people assume I did what's called the right 
thing. I'm not going to say that. I think what I did 
was appropriate or reasonable, if you can believe 
that, under the circumstances. Just appropriate 
and reasonable under the circumstances. And I 
knew what was happening right at the time. And a 
person does this and at the same time chooses to 
run away instead of turning himself over to the 
legal system — do you know what kind of state- 
ment that is about the legal system? If you have a 
clear-cut case, you would rather say the hell with 
it. See, Myra, you don't understand the situation 
in New York. In a way, in New York, the people 
are cornered, the people particularly in the poor 
sections, they're cornered like a rat. Myra, in the 
past three years, I have been attacked three times. 
And I've been threatened twice seriously. The 
people, particularly in the poor sections — you 
don't know how many guns there are in New 
York. The people have to have guns. And yet the 
city tells you, "Don't you dare have a gun; you get 
a one-year mandatory." I mean, this is just for 
starters. See, Myra, you don't understand. The so- 
ciety —

B: The society in its own way even uses terror- 
ism. They say, for example, "You know what it's 
like to go to jail?" Myra, I don't care what happens 
to me. But you know what they tell the rest of so- 
ciety? In jail, just for example, one of the unspo- 
ken fears, if you go to jail, among guys, is you're 
going to get gang-raped. Okay? In jail, you're 
going to get beaten, gang-raped, the whole f- — 
business. It's a subtlety that is used, it's a subtle 
form of terrorism of a lot of the population. 
Whether you believe it or not doesn't matter to 
me. That's something you have to think about. I'm 
not worried about going to jail, Myra. 

M: You're not going to go to jail. 

B: Myra, in terms of the values of the society, I 
have everything to gain. Everything. Whether it 
would be money, or whatever, or fame, or popu- 
larity. These things just make me sick. But the 
whole situation . . . the legal system is a farce. It's 
a farce. It's a self-serving bureaucracy. These 
lawyers who want to defend me for free, Myra, the 
case is an open-and-shut case on technicalities. 
It's a simple thing. 

M: You mean, you are innocent on technical- 
ities or you are guilty on technicalities? 

B: Obviously, I'm innocent, but on technical- 
ities. It would be a joke to beat this ... a joke. 

M: Then what in the world are you afraid of? 

B: What I want to lead is a normal life. 
That's all. 

M: In other words, they menaced you. 

B: Myra, why do you think these guys aren't tell- 
ing the truth? Well, the police, either they're not 
telling the truth or they're releasing information 
that's bad information deliberately. But that 
doesn't matter. 

M: The police don't think these guys were 

B: You don't understand the issue. For example, 
on a technicality, they'll say they were carrying 
[screwdrivers], but they didn't display them. So 
therefore, I did not have the right to respond, 
Myra I know it. And they know it. 

M: But you just said on a technicality you are 

B: On numerous technicalities. 

M: Then what difference does it make? Turn 
yourself in. Let a lawyer — 

B: No. No, Myra. I just want to be left alone. I 
want no part of it. I don't have the strength to see 
this through. I have projects that I'm working on 
in my apartment. Things I want to do, and I want 
to do those things. That's what I want. I just don't 
want to spend one day on this. And if I turn myself 
in, this is just gonna run my life for the next sever- 
al months. 

M: But I also do not think there is a chance in 
hell that you are going to do any time. 

B: That's not the issue. You don't understand. 
That's not what I'm afraid of. Myra, if someone 
comes up to me and puts a bullet in my head, I 
don't care. 

M: I thought you had things in your life that you 
wanted to do. 

B: If I'm going to live. Myra, that's not it 

What I want to do is forget this. Look, I'll tell you 
what. . . . I'll drive in to New York tomorrow, and 
what happens happens. 

M: What is your option if you don't? 

B: Listen, Myra. If I don't, if I don't turn myself 

in, if I don't get caught, I can lead a normal life. To 
you, that sounds unimportant. It seems like noth- 
ing to go through this. But I just don't want to go 
through it. 

M: I do understand. You are in a pickle. 

B: I'm not in trouble. It's just — Myra, this so- 
ciety makes me sick. Its values are so twisted. It's 
just crazy. I don't know. Anyway, look, why run up 
the phone bill? 

M: I cannot be the only person in the world you 
have told about this. 

B: You are. You are the only person who I have 
told who knows for sure. There are plenty of other 
people who, who know. But I haven't spoken to 
anyone about it. Well, one deputy sheriff. 

M: What did the deputy sheriff say? 

B: He recognized me. And he said I should get a 

M: But that's what I'm trying to tell you. 

B: But that's not what I want! He knew what I 
wanted. And that is to be left alone. You under- 
stand? See, for you, it's easy to say, "Go ahead and 
do this and let's get all the dirt out." Myra, rather 
than go through this, I'd rather put a bullet in my 

M: Don't talk like that. 
B: To you it sounds ridiculous. 
M: It doesn't sound ridiculous. It sounds 

B: Well, you're not in my position. That's all. 
Well, anyway, the hell with it. Probably nothing 
will happen, I hope. Okay. I'll be around. Why 
don't you just go to bed now? I'll be in tomorrow. 
If you want, you can stop by. I won't be in until the 

M: And you're going to stay here in New York 
City, and you're going to manage to go on with 
your life and not tell anybody about this? 

B: Sure. What I'm gonna try to do, I'll stay in 
New York for a period of time. Oh, by the way, 
Myra, there've been some very serious rumors 
about we're going to get a red herring [a prospec- 
tus for co-oping of the apartment building] in Jan- 
uary. But anyway, whether it happens or not 
doesn't matter. Maybe I'd like to stay for a period 
of time. But I just want to move out of New York. 
Myra, if you could see New York City the way I see 
New York City. 

M: Before this happened, had you thought that 
if something like that happened that you might do 
something like that if you got angry enough? 

B: What do you mean? 

M: Before this happened, and you were threat- 
ened or frightened, or they threatened to 
attack you. 

B: Myra, you don't understand. I know a little 
bit about fighting. And I know how to defend my- 
self. . . . You work out many different options 
under the circumstances. Do you understand? To 
say, I knew, it was premeditation — or whether it 
was not premeditation — is not important. Auto- 
matically, if you are thinking of defending your- 
self, whether you carry a gun or a screwdriver or a 
razor blade or anything, automatically there is a 
type of premeditation to your thinking. That a sit- 
uation can occur. 

M: So you're saying, in a way, that this is a sce-

The prosecutor 
wondered if 
Goetz was a 
member of a 

across can become a crime. Something like this? 
You never know what's going to happen. No one 
ever acted out anything like this. In that situation, 
Myra, you can use every facility you have, every bit 
of intelligence and treachery and speed and things 
like that. You're using all your facilities. And, 
Myra, I wasn't hunting those guys. I didn't even 
know they were on the train. Until I got on. 

M: Answer me yes or no. Did they threaten you? 

B: What do you think? 

M: I think they appeared to be very menacing. 

B: I know what was in their minds. And they 
know that I know. Do you understand? The 
threats. If a physical threat is displayed, that was 
irrelevant compared — 

M: Compared to what? 

B: Compared to the threat. The threats are what 
you see. With your eyes. 

M: What do you mean? 

B: The threats were numerous. Numerous and 

M: You perceived that they were a threat to you. 

B: I didn't perceive. I know. I know and they 
know. The police — I don't know how much 
they've checked into these guys. 

M: They've got records. 

B: What kind of records? 

M: Criminal records. 

B: Myra, those guys, those guys, I'm almost 
sure, are vicious, savage people. What I did, I re- 
sponded in a vicious and savage way. And you just 
think. The savagery that's involved, it's a lot more 
than pulling a trigger. 

M: Had you thought of this kind of scenario be- 
fore? If some people menaced you, or you per- 
ceived them to be menacing, that you were liable 
to pull out a gun and shoot them? 

B: Myra, you listen. I have been. I was attacked 
previously to this by two guys. Actually attacked. 
With weapons. And I got the drop on them, and I 
held one at bay. One of them ran ; I held one at bay, 
and I let him run away. But that was a different 

situation I was threatened once, on the street, 

a serious threat, and I pulled the piece and the 
person ran away. I allowed the person to run 
away. Once, the situation where I was attacked by 
two people, I had no choice but to pull the piece, 
and showing it was enough. The situation where I 
was threatened by one person, I didn't have to pull 
the piece, because I reacted in anger. I didn't even 
have to show the gun. If I were smarter, I would 
have just run inside a store and just stayed in the 

store [In the subway shooting], I saw what was 

going to happen. And I snapped. The truth of the 
thing, the total truth would protect me. The tech- 
nicalities would protect me. But I think, for me, 

I'm much better off just being totally silent For 

me, the best thing is to just try to forget and live a 
normal life. There really isn't much more to say. 

M: How did you get through that subway? 

B: Speed. 

M: What do you know from subway tunnels? 

B: You don't! Myra, you have to . . . Myra, in a 
situation like this, your mind, you're in a combat 
situation. Your mind is functioning. You're not 
thinking in a normal way. Your memory isn't even 
working normally. You are so hyped up. Your vi- 
sion actually changes. Your field of view changes. 
Your capabilities change. What you are capable of 
changes. You are under adrenaline, a drug called 

38 NEW YORK/ FEBRUARY l8, 1985 

adrenaline. And you respond very quickly, and you 
think very quickly. That's all. 

M: You're saying you don't even know what you 
were doing there? 

B: Oh, sure. I knew exactly what I was doing. In 
a sense, I knew exactly what I was doing. 

M: How*d you get out of the city? 

B: It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. You 
think! You think, you analyze, and you act. And in 
any situation, you just have to think more quickly 
than your opposition. That's all. You know. Speed 
is very important. 

M: Did you pass policemen on the way? 

B: It doesn't matter. The story is unimportant. 
I'm going to try and get some sleep. Myra, just 
please don't tell anyone. I'll be staying. I don't 
want to go out. I just don't want to do anything. 
When I come back, I'm going to have to answer a 
bunch of mail and write some checks and do some 
paperwork and this and that. I've got things that I 
normally would be doing that I'm planning on 
doing. I need a good shower, I have to change my 
clothes. I'd like to straighten up my apartment a 
little bit and answer some mail and clean myself 
up and just things like that. 

M: You better get a good night's sleep. 

B: Well, it's not easy. Okay, Myra. I'll see you 
around. Bye-bye. 


SM to buy a newspaper. I was dazed. I 
£ J remembered that I had seen a de- 
^r^"^B tective I knew sitting in the build- 

M I > n 8 tne previous Thursday. The de- 
^t^L ^ i^L, tective's name is Maurice Cerulli, 
and I had said, "Hey, Moe, what are 
you doing here?" He had said, "Just 
routine, uiv'en that I live on 14th Street, I had 
accepted the answer without a thought. Now I 
went to one of the doormen and asked what the 
police had been doing there. 

"I don't know," the doorman said. "They were 
asking questions about Bernie. They left a note in 
his door and a note in his mailbox." 

Back upstairs, I wondered if I should call Moe. I 
decided first to give Bernie a chance to turn him- 
self in. I reasoned that the notes from the police 
might prove to be too much of a shock for him. I 
slipped up to the ninth floor and pocketed a piece 
of paper stuck in the door reading, "Mr. Goetz — 
Please contact the police A.S.A.P." The following 
morning, I retrieved the note from the mailbox. 

Around noon on Sunday, I heard footsteps 
coming from the apartment upstairs. I dialed Ber- 
nie's number. There was no answer. I ran down to 
the front desk and asked the doorman if Bernie 
was home. The doorman said he was. I raced to 
the elevator. At that moment, the door slid open. 
There stood Bernie Goetz, on his way down to the 
laundry, holding a dirty blue sock. 

"I can't talk now, I've got a lot of things to do. I 
can't talk," Bernie said. 

About 2 p.m., there was a faint knock at my 
door. Bernie whisked into the apartment. Before I 
had a chance to tell him about the notes, he said 
he had found a message from the police under his 
door. I suggested he turn himself in. He said, "I 
can't, I can't." He said he could not endure the 
commotion. He said he might hide out in New 
England "until this blows over."

When I asked about the shooting, he paced back 
and forth. He appeared unable to put what had 
happened into words. He was able to leave me 
with a clear impression of how frightened he must 
have been. He finally turned and demonstrated a 
gesture he said one of the young men had made. 
He shoved his right hand into his pocket and 
thrust the fingers forward to suggest a weapon. He 
said something like "Look, Myra." 

As he spoke, Bernie moved from chair to chair. 
He sat down. He stood up. He sat down. While he 
was in the recliner, I asked, "Bernie, what's with 
the guns, for God's sake?" He said, "Oh, Myra, I 
grew up on a farm. Guns are nothing on a farm. I 
knew about guns when I was a kid." 

Bernie moved to the love seat. He reminded me 
that one of the doormen had been so badly beaten 
in a mugging that he had spent over a year in the 
hospital and had been left maimed. He said that 
the criminal-justice system allowed hoodlums to 
get away with anything short of homicide. 

"Myra, they can do anything to you but kill 
you," Bernie said. "They can fracture your skull. 
They can squash your brain. They can ruin your 
kidneys. They can break your legs. They can wreck 
your spine." 

Then Bernie shifted to the sofa. He rambled on 
about the poverty and bad schools that had 
spawned the four teenagers he had shot. He said 
that everyone was blameless. He said that every- 
one was to be blamed. He threw his hands in the 
air and said something like "I don't know, Myra, 
the whole thing's hopeless." He suddenly jumped 
to his feet and bolted out of the apartment. 

"I got to get going," he said. 

Less than an hour later, I heard a second faint 
knock. Bernie came in holding a neatly folded 
paper bag. He said, "Would you keep this for me 
for a couple of days?" I gave him a look, and he 
said, "This is not the weapon that was used." He 
raced toward the bedroom, and I said, "No, not 
there." I pointed to the front closet. I asked, "Will 
it explode?" He answered, "No, there are no bul- 
lets in there." I said, "I'm not touching it." He 
placed the package on the closet shelf. 

"You have a lot of stuff on the floor in here, you 
know," he said. 

A moment later, Bernie left, saying, "I got to 
go." I sat for a few minutes, and I decided I had to 
talk to Bernie about the package. I went up to his 
apartment and knocked. I said, "Bernie, it's me." 
There was no response, and I went back down- 
stairs. That evening, I tried to contact a childhood 
friend who is a lawyer. The friend wa5 on Martha's 
Vineyard for the New Year's weekend. I stared at 
the package in the closet. I had no desire to in- 
spect what was inside. 


/m telephone rang. Bernie was calling 
j J from somewhere outside the city. I 
r^^A heard the same anxious breathing 
M M and the same stammering speech. 
-^L. .^L. He sounded worn and fatigued. 

More than anything else, he 
seemed sad. I again turned on my 
tape recorder. He spoke about the police. 

B: For some reason, they really want to get me. 
Okay, fine. It doesn't matter. But anyway, it's only 
a matter of time. Because once they start asking 

me questions, Myra, you know, what am I going to 
do? I'm not going to be able to lie to them. 

M: Yeah, I think it would be very hard for you. 

B: Okay. Now, what I'm planning on doing — I 
figure for me, probably the best course that I can 
do is, you know, give myself up to the police here 
in New Hampshire and just make a deal with the 
city and say, "Look, if you want the whole truth, 
I'll tell you everything I possibly know. You can do 
whatever you want with me. But just, you know, 
give me my privacy. All I'm asking for is my pri- 
vacy. It's very important to me. If you give me my 
privacy, temporarily. Just temporarily, that's all. 
You don't have to give me amnesty or anything. 
Just my privacy temporarily, and then what 1 would 
like, you know, is to go on leading a normal life 
afterwards. This would be giving me my privacy 
permanently." . . . Myra, what I did — I turned into 
a monster, and that's the truth. But if most people, 
a lot of people, would have been in my shoes, they 
would have done the same thing. 

M: Of course. Everybody knows that. 

B: But here's the thing. The authorities are out 
to get me, Myra. As I see it, it's only a matter of 
time. So I think I'm going to try to pull this deal 
off. My privacy is worth a lot to me. What's going 
to happen though, too, once they start checking 
up on me, they're probably going to start checking 
into, tracing all my activities. And they'll probably 
start questioning a number of people, many peo- 
ple, including you, in about a week or so. I'm just 
giving you some warning. 

M: I am a little concerned because of what you 
left in the apartment. 

B: It's going to be next to impossible that they 
would search your place. 

M: It's not that. It's that if they asked me I'd 
have to tell them. 

B: I see. Well, uh, uh, gee, Myra, I hadn't 
thought that out. 

M: I know. And neither had I. 

B: Well, uh. Oh, gee. 

M: You don't want to come take them back, 
do you? 

B: Oh, gee, Myra. They could say, "What was 
this guy doing talking to you?" You could just say, 
"He talked to me about this and that." You're wor- 
ried, okay, they're going to put you on the spot 
saying, "Did he leave anything here, or did you 
assist him in any way, or anything like that?" 

M: Something to that effect. What transpired. 

B: You could say I just talked about it in general 

terms Myra, this Dr. Joyce Brothers wrote an 

article that I would be bragging about it and the 
whole thing. Oh, my God! 

M: I saw it. I know. Listen, there is no way that I 
can get back into your apartment to put that stuff 
back in? 

B: First of all, no, there isn't, because I have the 
only set of keys, and they're with me. And second, 
boy, that would really be bad for me too. 

M: Yeah, I know. 

B: Perhaps, could you just ask a friend, put them 
in a hatbox? 
M: I can't do that. 

B: Here's the thing. You do not necessarily 
know for sure what is in the bag. What I told you 
was what was not in the bag. I did not tell you 
what was in that bag. You have not opened the 
bag. I protected you in that way, Myra. Legally, I

M: Yeah, but— 

B: I said, "There are no bullets in this bag. 
There's nothing loaded." Now, you knew what

M: Yeah. 

B: You could surmise what is in there, but you 
could not necessarily know. 

M: Bernie, I think the problem — a grand jury 
wouldn't believe me, that's all. 

B: Myra, you're not going to be questioned that 
much, anyway. 

M: Wait a minute! 

B: Listen, I understand you're a little bit on the

rivers, uh — now that's an excellent idea — rivers 
get, uh, rivers get, uh, dredged? 

M: Why are they going to dredge the river? 

B: Well, there's all kinds of things to do. You 
can take the Staten Island Ferry and just, uh, you 
know, at night. 

M: No, I don't have to be that obscure. I could 
just, I'll figure out what to do about that. 

B: I just want to forget this if I possibly can. 

M: I think it is an important story. 

B: Myra, these are things that are just too much 
for people to bear. It's not art. It's disgusting. 

M: That's not what I mean. 

B: Don't go around telling anybody of any con- 
versations that you've had or this and that. And I 
guess now if they ask me if I talked to anybody, I'll 
say, yeah, I talked to you for a while. I'm not going 
to say anything about what I left in your apart- 
ment. I'll say I talked to you about it in general- 
ities and that I was thinking of turning myself over, 
of speaking to the Guardian Angels. See, at least I 
can make a deal.The deal is, the truth for my — how 
is it pronounced? — anon . . . anonym . . . 

M: Anonymity. 

B: A-non-y-mi-teee. 

M: Anonymity. 

B: Oh. It's not an easy word to pronounce. 

M: I think that is the best thing you can do, just 
trying to make the circus as easy on you as possi- 
ble. I think I can stand between you and that 

B: You can't. You can't. I won't do that. I don't 
feel I should have to hide anything from any- 
body I think I'll take a shower now and turn 

myself in, and that's probably all I can do. 

M: Are people recognizing you, or are you slip- 
ping through pretty easily? 

B: Well, like I say, New York City is out to get 
me I think what I'm offering them is reason- 
able. I don't see how they could, you know, turn it 

M: Okay. Now what about a lawyer? 

B: Here's the thing. I'll offer them anything. I'll 
tell them everything that they want to know. And, 
if they want to, they can put me on trial, and I'll 
plead no contest to anything. I'll make it so easy 
for them. I'll just tell 'em the whole truth, and if I 
did wrong, then they can judge me on that. I won't 
even fight it So anyway, I'm going to give my- 
self up in a couple of hours. I don't know if I 
should drive to the state capital and give myself up 

or if I should just go into a local sheriffs depart- 
ment or something I'll play it by ear. 

M: You don't want to come back into the city? 

B: Well. Maybe, I'm a little bit of a fighter. It's a 
little bit of a way of giving one last kick to New 

York City The deal that I want to make— I 

don't see how the city can pass it up It seems 

so fair on my part. 

M: Okay. As far as this other thing, telling any- 
thing afterwards, people will approach you. 

B: Here's the thing. If I'm allowed to be anony- 
mous, then they won't know who to go after 

My misfortune is I was in the wrong place at the 
wrong time, and I was number one, that's all. But 
Myra, people have to fight back. You have to. As I 
see it, if you don't, you're living like a dog. 

M: The degree of anonymity ... the press will 
drive them [the police] crazy. 

B: Of course. The press. Oh, they just love their 

M: So you want to stick to turning yourself in in 
New Hampshire. 

B: I think that's what I'm going to do. For me, it 
seems it's the best course of action. Like I say, be 
calm I guess that's about it. 

M: How come you were not in the army? 

B: No. You don't have to be in the army. Why? 

M: I just figured you would have been the 
right age. 

B: For what? For Vietnam, you mean? 

M: No. Nothing to do with Vietnam. 

B: I did everything I could to get out of Vietnam, 
and I did. In terms of beating the system and stuff 
like that, I beat it good. I was an essential civilian 
working for the military, and I got canned from 
that job. ... I was working on the nuclear subma- 
rines. And then from that, I went to a 4F. I got 
permanently disqualifed from the military. 

M: How*d you get 4F? 

B: I, uh, a psychiatrist trained me to act like a 
complete psychotic. Me and a number of other 
people. We actually went through a training pro- 
gram. It's ludicrous! . . . They're not going to want 
too much about my past. Generally, people want a 
simple answer, and it's just not. 

M: Will you call me again? 

B: Obviously not. Because I'm going to be in the 
hands of the police. So I won't be talking to you 
again until, well, maybe, I don't know if they could 
possibly release me on my own recognizance. Is 
that what it's called? But who knows? If you see 
me in the building, stop by and say hi. . . . Or, I'll 
give you a buzz or something like that. 

M: Okay. I think you're doing the right thing. 

B: I guess it's the only choice. Otherwise, it's 
going to be, I'm going to be a fugitive, that's all. 
Okeydoke. See you around. Bye-bye. 


/% with Bernie, I was finally able to 
j J reach my friend the lawyer, Paul 
^^^M Grand. He suggested that I could 
M M leave the brown paper bag at his of- 
M ^^L. fice. He added, "I would hate to 
have whatever might be in that bag 
drop out on the sidewalk for the 
whole world to see." He told me to place it in a 
shoe box with a string. I decided that I had to fol- 
low his instructions to the letter, and I searched 
my apartment for a shoe box. I was unable to find

one, and I went next door to a shoe store. I re- 
turned with a box, only to discover that Bernie's 
package was too large. I took a slightly bigger car- 
ton. I tied this with a cord and placed it in a shop- 
ping bag. I knotted a second cord, and I put the 
whole thing in a sack. I hopped a cab to Paul 
Grand's office. 

That afternoon, I heard that Bernie had in fact 
surrendered to the police in Concord, New Hamp- 
shire. Through Paul Grand, I turned the brown 
paper bag over to the authorities. I learned that 
Bernie had given me a 9-mm. automatic pistol and 
a Smith & Wesson .38-caliber revolver. 

For at least an hour, I was questioned by an as- 
sistant district attorney named Susan Braver. At 
the end of the interview, she stood up and said that 
she hoped Bernie was not a member of some sort 
of vigilante organization. I felt like saying that he 
could not even manage to attend block-association 

"Bernie?" I said. " Come on. " 

On television, I saw footage of Bernie being es- 
corted to a squad car. He was handcuffed and sur- 
rounded by police. This was the first time I had 
ever seen him walk slowly. The newspaper report- 
ed that Bernie had insisted on giving a full state- 
ment and had stubbornly refused to accept even 
free legal advice. He had also declined offers of 
bail money. I heard that police had found a toy fire 
engine in his rented car. I thought of the children 
he played with in the lobby. 

On January 3, Bernie was arraigned in Manhat- 
tan Criminal Court on charges of attempted 
murder and gun possession. I got a message to 
him, and he called. He was in a holding pen, and 
he said he was being transferred to Rikers Island. 
He said, "TO raise bail and I'll get out of there if I 
survive it." I asked how he felt. 

"I'm all right, Myra, everything's all right," he 
said. "Everything's fine. Fine." 

The following week, I was called down to the 
grand jury. In the waiting room, I saw one of the 
four teenagers Bernie had shot. He was lying on a 
wood bench, wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt 
and sneakers. He moaned and said, "Get me a 
motherf- ambulance. My stomach. My stom- 
ach." He limped as he went in to tell the jury that 
he had nothing to say. 

Then my name was called. I entered a large 
room and noted that there were black and white 
jurors. Susan Braver stood to my left and ques- 
tioned me aggressively. I felt she was intent on se- 
curing an indictment. My tapes were played, and 
several jurors laughed when they heard Bernie 
suggest that I dump his package off the Staten Is- 
land Ferry at night. Braver did not smile. 

"What did you say when he delivered the pack- 
age?" I remember Braver asking. 

"A-i-h," I answered. 

While the grand jury was still considering the 
case, Bernie raised bail. I stood downstairs that 
Tuesday evening awaiting his return. Somehow, 
he slipped through the reporters massed outside, 
and he scurried in through our building's back 
door. He was overjoyed to be home. He was more 
relaxed than I had ever seen him. 

"Hi, everybody," Bernie said. 

That night, I joined Bernie and some friends in 
his apartment. He seemed too happy to be upset 
by the mess the police had left. The room became 

crowded, and he suggested that we might be more 
comfortable in my flat. We went downstairs and 
ordered junk food. He said he had liked the meals 
at Rikers Island but had been put off by the 
roaches. He said his cellmates had included Em- 
manuel Torres, the accused killer of actress Caro- 
line Eisenberg. Torres had given him a book. 

Later, I heard Bernie walking alone in his apart- 
ment. Over the days that followed, the walking be- 
came pacing. One of the young men he had shot 
slipped into a coma at St. Vincent's Hospital. Ber- 
nie finally hired two attorneys. One, a well-known 
civil lawyer named Joseph Kelner, had been 
mugged in the past. The other, Barry Slotnick, was 
one of the more prominent criminal defenders in 
the city. Kelner and Slotnick wanted to see a vid- 
eotape of the statement Bernie had made in New 
Hampshire. There was constant speculation in the 
press as to whether Bernie would forgo immunity 
and appear before the grand jury. 


f ■ nie in the lobby. He was peppy, and 
M m he rattled on about the grand jury. 
■ m He said, "The only reason to appear 
I W is to show good faith." Then, per- 
^^^^ haps out of concern for me, he spoke 

of the brown paper bag. 

"Oh, by the way, Myra, when this 
thing settles down in a few days, uh, maybe, you, 
uh, the package, maybe you want to give it back," 
he said. 

When I got back to my apartment, I was shak- 
ing. I had hoped somebody had told Bernie that I 
had been compelled to turn the guns over to the 
police. For several days, I agonized over what to 
do. One afternoon, I finally picked up the tele- 
phone. I told Bernie that I had something to tell 

"Sure, come on up," he said. 

Upstairs, I sat on his couch. He had restored the 
apartment to order, and he had removed the scuff 
marks the police had left on his kitchen floor. I 
again admired his mahogany chest. I told him that 
I had taped him. He said, "I know, it's all right." I 
said that I had surrendered the guns. He said, "I 
know, it's all right." As I left, I paused to talk 
about the shooting. 

"Bernie, are you sorry?" I said. 

"I'd rather not answer," he said. 

I spoke of the young man who remained in a 

"I feel terrible for his mother," Bernie said. 

On another visit, Bernie showed me two pieces 
of mail. One was a letter from an apparent sado- 
masochist. The note read, "I want to be your 
slave." Bernie said, "Can you believe this?" The

about the case. We only discussed a petition he 
had posted about street peddling. I asked if he

sentence — already up to 
$13 trillion in his calcula- 
tions — for a sudden pot- 
hole. A real tire-thumper, 
• on an outbound trip along 
the FDR Drive, and deep enough to date 
from the darkest days of his old friend 
Mayor Abe Beame. "Feel that?" he asks, 
as the wallop shimmies back through the 
limousine's chassis. "That's what has 
happened to New York City, what these 
giveaway programs have done to the 
quality of life here." More washboard jit- 
ters under the limousine, and a half-curl 
of a smile. "All to get these 
liberals elected." 

Then a favorite story on 
his one-man crusade against 
government waste, a.k.a. 
Peter Grace's 2,478 Ways to 
Cut $424.4 Billion in Federal 
Boondoggling. The story is 
about heading up Mayor 
Beame's finance committee 
in 1974. Grace was flying to 
Memphis in the Grace jet 
when a call came from 
Walter Wriston, then head of 
Citicorp. " "We're not rolling 
over the debt, Peter. Tell 
your friend, the mayor.' Six- 
point-two billion dollars! 
'All right, Walt,' I said, 'can 
you send me a memo?' It was 
waiting on my desk when I 

got back — 175 pages, all 

saying the city is broke." In that emer- 
gency, enough good citizens, led by Felix 
Rohatyn, managed to put together Big 
Mac and bail out the city. "But who the 
hell" — and here's Grace's big point, his 
"net-net" on those growing federal defi- 
cits — "who the hell is going to bail out 
the federal government?" 

That's where the $13 trillion comes in. 
Thirteen trillion, he figures, will be the 
federal debt, at the rate the country's 
going, by the year 2000. But then, he says, 
add another $1 4 trillion in further federal 
obligations — the running total for Social 
Security, military retirement, and civil- 
service pensions by the year 2000 — and 
you arrive at the true bimillenary bailout 
figure. Twenty-seven trillion. 

The number is unreal; it must be a 
hype. Millions are comprehensible, as, 
say, the boodle some very rarified people 
possess. For example, J. Peter Grace him- 

self. Billions can be understood, as, say, 
the value of a large company. For exam- 
ple, W. R. Grace & Company, the sprawl- 
ing conglomerate that Peter Grace, as 
chairman and CEO, has built into 
No. 53 of the Fortune 500, with assets 
now of $6 billion. But trillions? 

"You cannot embrace a trillion," 
Grace reluctantly admits, though that is 
precisely what he is trying to get the 
American people to do. The fact is, he 
needs every last one of those trillions to 
prove his point. For, at 7 1 , Peter Grace is 
caught up in the favorite fantasy of every 
successful businessman: He is telling the 

Dream machine: Delivering the report to Reagan. 

government exactly how to run itself like 
any sound American company, before it 
goes broke. 

Grace got his chance to dream this 
dream three years ago, when Ronald 
Reagan appointed him chairman of the 
President's Private Sector Survey on Cost 
Control (PPSSCC). Eighteen months 
later, the Grace Commission, as the 
PPSSCC came to be known, issued a 
21,000-page report that claimed to have 
found 2,478 items of waste and ineffi- 
ciency in government that could be 
eliminated over three years to save 
$424.4 billion. 

Ever since, there has been a running 
controversy over whether the Grace 
Commission's numbers were real or in- 
flated. The latest doubter to weigh in is 
Professor Steven Kelman, from Harvard's 
Kennedy School of Government, who 
downwardly revises a bunch of Grace fig-

Food lor thought: Are the cakes from this Zen bakery in Yonkers up to Grace standards? 

ures in the current issue of The Public In- 
terest. He argues, for instance, that the 
Veterans Administration does not spend 
$140 per hospital-coverage claim, as the 
PPSSCC says, but only $5 to $7 (as 
against $3 to $6 for private insurance 
companies). But Professor Kelman's cor- 
rections are slight compared with an ear- 
lier report to Congress that squeezed 
$379 billion in Grace claims down to $97- 

These well-researched attacks have 
only made Peter Grace all the more de- 
termined to prove that his fantasy is, in- 
deed, stark reality. In fact, he is throwing 
all his personal influence, some of his 
own money, more of the company's, the 
allegiance of other corporations, and 
even his newfound friendship with col- 
umnrst Jack Anderson into the effort to 
convince people that these are real tril- 
lions going up in bureaucratic smoke. 

Actually, his most revealing contribu- 
tion to this public crusade may be his 
time — every spare moment, and he is su- 
perefficient at finding spare moments. 
"His life is on 30-second intervals," says 
Michael Novak, the Roman Catholic 
conservative who has worked with Grace 
on another project. It's also free of the 
normal time-wasting breaks. "I don't like 
to watch TV. I don't like to go to the mov- 
ies. I don't like to drink," says Grace. "I 
don't like to play bridge or poker. So I 
just keep going, stay up as late as I can." 

That kind of availability has propelled 
Grace onto dozens of news broadcasts, 
talk shows, and podiums to carry his 
message. Today, it's got him in a limou- 
sine, bouncing over the rubbly FDR 

Drive on his way to a quick out-and-back 
flight for a speech in St. Louis — if the car 
can get to the Westchester County Air- 
port without breaking an axle. 

s—^r- didn't know the presi- 
• I dent, never had really met 

H him," explains Peter Grace. 
H A lifelong, if conservative, 
B Democrat, he was asked by 

— ^ — Reagan to organize a private 
businessmen's posse — "to hunt down 
government waste," as Grace loves to 
quote him, "like hungry bloodhounds." 

Grace organized the commission as 
quickly as Washington inertia would al- 
low. He got 161 corporations to gather 
up 2,000 volunteers, including such top 
executives as IBM's former CEO Frank 
Can and Chase Manhattan's chairman, 
Willard C. Butcher. The group undertook 
47 cost surveys of various branches and 
interlockings and subterfuges of the U.S. 
government. It discovered — or, more ac- 
curately, rediscovered — such things as 
almost 3,000 military installations that 
could be closed without damage to na- 
tional security; 17,000 computers (now 
more like 19,000) that are about six years 
behind the state of the art and unable to 
talk to one another; $3.5 billion in de- 
faulted student loans; $1 billion annually 
in food-stamp fraud; 332 conflicting ac- 
counting systems; those 3-cent screws 
that appear to cost the Defense Depart- 
ment $91 apiece; and on down the list of 
overruns, stretch-outs, loopholes, scams, 
and dodges. And all of it was done strict- 
ly by the numbers. 

That is Peter Grace's way, and always 

has been, ever since he took over W. R. 
Grace & Company four decades ago. 
Around Grace headquarters, that ski- 
slope-shaped building that overlooks 
Bryant Park on 42nd Street, they call it 
"The System." It holds sway particularly 
during the reviews Grace runs annual- 
ly — covering the company's various ven- 
tures in chemicals, energy, sporting 
goods, and food — when he allows noth- 
ing but numbers. In fact, the volume of 
prepared reports is simply one grid after 
another. A real page-turner. A grid is 
projected up on the boardroom screen, 
and chairman Grace — a smallish man, 
with a bit of a tummy, a bald, freckled 
pate, and pale, probing, Irish eyes — 
scans the numbers, like a leprechaun 
checking out the seismic readings on his 
pot of gold. 

He tends to grill the world outside the 
boardroom the same way, claiming, "I'm 
just an accountant," and asking often for 
the net-net. That's the ultimate bottom 
line, though sometimes it comes to more 
than a crunched number. For example, 
here's Grace's net-net on congressmen: 
"Perfectly awful . . . clowns!" His backup 
analysis is "They never tell the truth" and 
have only "two objectives: to get elected, 
and then get re-elected." Which puts 
them in a constitutional position to deny 
and obstruct the good work of the Grace 
Commission, which — so far — they have 
been overly disposed to do. 

"I was very, very naive," Grace con- 
fesses as we bump along the FDR Drive. 
He presented the commission's Final Re- 
port with great fanfare in early 1984, in a 
sustained salvo of carefully timed public

releases. "I thought all we'd have to do is 
take bows. That it would all go down like 
lovely, sweet cough medicine." 

But very few in Washington would ad- 
mit to having a cough. The commission 
wasn't attacking just those $436 ham- 
mers the Pentagon keeps banging its 
thumb with, but the bureaucracy's very 
perks, such as overgrading, "double-dip- 
ping," and a cola (Cost of Living 
Allowance) that makes it better for a man 
to retire early than to continue to work 
and fall behind economically. Largely 
through Congress, the "permanent gov- 
ernment" counterattacked, with a com- 
bined report from the Congressional 
Budget Office and the General Account- 
ing Office. The CBO-GAO accountants 
could find, at most, a third of the savings 
the commission supposedly uncovered — 
most of which they would characterize as 
"changes in public policy." 

"My biggest single concern was the 
numbers," says Charles Bowsher, head of 
the GAO. "They were higher than reality. 
We didn't want people believing there 
was a quick $425 billion to be saved in 
the near-future when you're not sure it's 
really there." What further worried 
Bowsher was that when Grace testified 
before Congress he was stubborn about 
accepting any corrected figures. 

Grace won't even concede to Professor 
Kelman, who argues that the "horror 
stories" about "bureaucratic absurdity" 
are, without exception, statistical exag- 
gerations, even whoppers. 

Besides these attacks, other rumors 
floated around Washington about 
Grace's "plans" to undo Social Security. 
"Completely erroneous," snaps Grace. 
The commission only wanted to end mis- 
taken payments, he insists — $14.6 billion 
in 1980-82. "They'd say anything about 
the report rather than read it." 

ized that, to the world at 
large, the numbers didn't 
speak for themselves. 
Someone had to be their 
advocate. Out of feisti- 
ness, principle, and the ham in him ("He 
loves the public attention," says a Grace 
executive), he took on the job himself. 

First off, he enlisted the help of his own 
company. Since late last year, W. R. 
Grace has been sponsoring a promotion- 
al campaign — $3.1 million in television 
and print advertising — that features a 
baby who is being asked to sign in her 
crib for $50,000. That's the burden feder- 
al deficits are laying on each member of 
her generation. (That is, if you believe 
that $13-trillion debt in the year 2000, di- 
vided by the projected U.S. population.) 
More help has since come from Jack 

Anderson, "the liberal columnist," as 
Grace describes him. But the net-net on 
Jack Anderson is useful: "People are 
scared of him," Grace says. "Not a Con- 
gressman who isn't. And if I were in Con- 
gress, I'd be, too." 

Together, Grace and Anderson have 
formed a foundation called Citizens 
Against Waste, or caw. It is headquar- 
tered in Washington, with Grace execu- 
tive J. P. Bolduc as president, and it is 
seeking 50 million signatures on a na- 
tional petition "to blow the whistle on 
government waste." caw also plans to

subject those "perfectly awful clowns" in 
Congress to education by mail generated 
from those 50 million names. 

All told, there is just no way to call this 
duck — from the way it walks, swims, and 
quacks — anything but a pressure group. 
Grace makes no secret of this. He is toss- 
ing in all his honoraria — sometimes as 
much as $10,000 for a speech — and hop- 
ing to publish a magazine and produce 
TV documentaries. "It is wholly chicken 
and egg" — depending on what they can 
take in from the crowd. 

Jack Anderson is slightly more circum- 
spect. But he admits he has "essentially" 
changed his mind about a columnist's 
adopting a public cause — and using his 
own clout and other people's money to 
influence Congress. 

"Drew Pearson used to do this," he re- 
calls, citing the days when Pearson and 
Anderson did the column together as 
"Washington Merry-Go-Round." "I used 
to argue with him about it — say we are 
journalists, observers, that it's easier to 
sit in the grandstand and yell 'Throw the 
bum out!' than play quarterback." 

But now he would have to agree more 
with Pearson. "A columnist has a greater 
prerogative to take an editorial position," 
he has come to believe. "Also, as a citi- 
zen, I see the nation in desperate finan- 
cial shape — we don't have much time. 

It's a good crusade for a 
columnist." In his view, it 
fits as the culmination of 
everything he has been 
saying all his life. "I've 
spent 38 years here, and it 
gets worse. Median family 
income has risen l x h 
times, but government 
spending has gone up 246 
times, and it mostly sticks 
to their fingers. The big 
cause is the care and 
feeding of bureaucrats." 

All well and good, but 
why join Peter Grace — a 
frequent target for Drew 
Pearson in the column? 
"Drew's attacks were 
really more on Peter's 
forebears. He thought 
W. R. Grace was exploiting 
South America," Ander- 
son says. "Peter Grace, as 
of today, is devoted to his 
country. He comes across 
as a man dedicated to 
spending the rest of his 
life, at his own expense, 
taking on this number- 
one problem. What am I 
really doing to support 
him? Only helping to de- 
velop a constituency, or- 
ganize the public interest against the spe- 
cial interests." He's helping develop the 
magazine; he's given speeches and even 
written about caw. 

"But," Anderson admits, with a great, 
bearish shrug that shakes his whole desk, 
"we are kind of the Odd Couple." 

If ever there was a Messy One, it is Jack 
Anderson, working out of his Victorian- 
shabby, paper-cluttered, dimly lighted 
offices to bring every dark deed into the 
light of public scrutiny. " 'A snake in the 
grass, don't go near him,' I was told," re- 
calls Grace. "But I love the guy and tell 
people who are turned off from us by 
him, "You've got Jack Anderson wrong.' 

If ever there was a Neat and Tidy One, 
it is Peter Grace, with his empire run 
strictly by the numbers, where every con-

fidential reply to his memos must begin 
with the question he put in the first place. 
"He's a multimillionaire and a certifi- 
able curmudgeon," says Anderson, "but 
he let his hair down with me, head- to- 
head, and I like the man." 

What seems to have brought them this 
close together is worries that fathers 
have in common when they start thinking 
about their children's future. In this case, 
multiple worries, since there are nine 
children each in Anderson's Mormon 
family and Grace's Roman Catholic one. 
"Jack told me, 'I don't think we're going 
to get nuked, but this government spend- 
ing could lead to fundamental bank- 
ruptcy for my children,' " says Grace 
about their first meeting. 

"I've seen the top-secret intelligence," 
Anderson says, "and do not believe the 
Russians are suicidal. Nor are we. The 
next Pearl Harbor is going to be finan- 
cial, and that Pearl Harbor has already 

leaves the cratered East 
Side via the Bronx, then 
takes a sudden side trip 
into Yonkers for another 
of those 30-second inter- 
vals — this one slightly extended — that 
keep popping into his schedule. Call this 
one a Visit to a Zen Buddhist Bakery. 

It involves one of Grace's Roman 
Catholic charities, which he would prefer 
to keep private, but there is no denying 
that we are parked behind the Greyston 
Bakery and that the loading platform is 
crawling with monks — Trappist monks, 
in Cistercian traveling habits, and Bud- 
dhist monks, in short, gray jackets that 
look like le smoking. There is even an ab- 
bot among the Trappists — Father Tom 
Keating, now retired from St. Joseph's 
Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts. 

In 1950, Grace built that abbey for 
Father Tom. But right now, Father Tom is 
worried about fifteen Trappist monks in 
Snowmass, Colorado, whose eggery is 
going bust. He thinks these Yonkers 
Buddhists, who run the Greyston Bakery, 
may have the answer a joint scheme to 
bake a line of health-food cookies, to be 
distributed through Macy's, among other 
stores. The Zen Buddhists would handle 
the New York Macy's, and the Trap- 
pists — once they'd been trained by the 
Buddhists and after they'd mastered the 
adjustments needed to bake anything at 
8,000 feet — would supply the Dallas 
Macy's and the San Francisco Macy's. 

The limousine waits while Grace goes 
inside to help Father Tom decide (after 
all, W. R. Grace is now doing $771 mil- 
lion annually in fast foods and restaurant 
chains) if this is really God's way to go.

When he returns, the vehicle zooms 
around to the Buddhist monastery, for- 
merly the Dodge estate. The many monks 
and Grace enter, then send out word to 
come, partake of the feast. Grace is 
munching happily on a rich piece of 
Black Forest cake. A table is piled with 
pastries that on close investigation turn 
out to be terrific — especially the pecan 
pie, which is thin as a tart, and tastes like 
. . . what is Zen for "food for the gods"? 
You'd have to go to Dean & DeLuca to 
find baked goods this good. 

That's where you do go, a Zen 
teacher explains. His monks have been in 
the baking business only two and a half 
years, but already their delicacies are 
sold by the best gourmet shops in the 

Last year, when the Zen teacher was at 
St. Joseph's for a conference of seven ma- 
jor religions, he proposed this health- 
food-cookie venture to Father Tom — 
more out of interests ecumenical than 

Peter Grace keeps his own counsel, 
while raving about the cakes and cookies 
and pies, and on the way out, somebody 
asks the Zen teacher's name. "Bernard," 
the teacher answers, bowing with clasped 
palms. "Bernard Glassman." 

finally on our way out to 
the airport in Westches- 
ter, the rest of the story 
comes out: Father Tom 
happens to be the son of 
the admiralty lawyer who once represent- 
ed the Grace Line. Grace has always kept 
an eye on him, ready to help when need- 

ed. If there's a certain paternal quality to 
his interest, it's very reminiscent of the 
grand old days when W. R. Grace was a 
family company as well as a magnifi- 
cence throughout South America. 

The company was a vast shipping em- 
pire, built up from a single old barge. 
Grace's grandfather, W. R. Grace, who 
emigrated from Ireland during the potato 
famine, had sailed the boat out of Peru in 
the 1850s, to meet the guano fleet — 100 
miles offshore, and that much out front 
of any competition. From that came the 
green-and-white Grace Line, then the 
airline Panagra, textile mills in Peru, 
sugar mills and factories everywhere. 
"It was our most glamorous time, and I 
miss it very much," Grace says. 

But Peter Grace is the man most re- 
sponsible for ending all that glamour, ex- 
changing it for far greater riches by ex- 
ecuting the first modern corporate turn- 
around 40 years ago. That story involves 
another family friend— a Chilean econo- 
mist named Raul Simon. "A wonderful 
economic mind," Grace says. Don Raul 
ran the Chilean state railroad before Jo- 
seph P. Grace, Peter's father, hired him 
in 1936. "He used to keep this little black 
book, where he wrote down all the key 
figures on the world economy," Grace 
says. Another man who went by the 
numbers. "But he also had a sense of hu- 
mor, and wrote these Will Rogers kind of 
cracks in the newspaper El Mercurio: 'A 
pessimist is a married optimist.' He also 
used to say, 'Democracy is a wonderful 
system — until it works.' " 

Those were his first words of wisdom 
to Peter Grace, then 26 and pretty much 
of a playboy. Grace had grown up, with 
his own string of polo ponies, on the 
family's estate in Manhasset, Long Is- 
land. After St. Paul's and Yale, where he 
played goalie on the hockey team, he 
worked in Peru for a few years before 
seeking out Don Raul. 

"You really had to question him to get 
his views," Grace recalls. "This was dur- 
ing the war, and Latin America had 
never been more prosperous. But he saw 
they were going to go right through this 
hoard of money in nothing flat. He con- 
vinced me we were dead, dead, dead." 
That view wasn't popular in the rest of 
the Grace company, and when Grace 
suddenly took over control himself, at 32, 
he had a fierce struggle on his hands. 

But net-net, Grace pioneered a total 
turnaround that pulled W. R. Grace out 
of Latin America — before it was pushed 
out by anti-Yanqui feeling. 

The wisdom of Don Raul, however, 
goes beyond what has happened in Latin 
America and, in fact, becomes part of 
the dark side of the fantasy. "He also pre- 
dicted what's happening now in the 



USA," says Grace. "Just like I said about 
New York City, when we were bouncing 
along the street back there. You've got 
thousands of people getting off the bus 
from the South, every week, coming into 
our society. Due to the fact that the poli- 
ticians stuck out this bright, shining 
light — this beacon." 

That sounds ominously close to the re- 
marks about Puerto Ricans that got 
Grace in deep trouble three years ago. At 
a speech before the American Feed Man- 
ufacturers Association, he departed from 
his text and commented that "almost all" 
of the 900,000 Puerto Ricans who live in 
New York were "on food stamps, so this 
food-stamp program is basically a Puerto 
Rican program." Representative Robert 
Garcia of the Bronx, then head of the 
Congressional Hispanic Caucus, reacted 
by labeling Grace's statement as "racist 
in nature." 

Grace quickly flew down to Puerto 
Rico to apologize to Governor Romero 
Barcelo, and the crisis passed. But in the 
back of a limousine on the FDR Drive, 
Grace hardly sounds chastened by the 
experience. "The damage was done from 
1967 to 1980," he insists. That's when 
deficit government spending got to be 
"like dope." 

Grace thinks that many Americans 
share his vision. He keeps hearing from 
them over the phone lines during talk 
shows. An FBI widow who says right out, 
"I'm getting too much money." Pen- 
sioned military men who thank him, 
saying, "We're with you." By Grace's 
reckoning, "20 or 30 million of the public 
are up in arms." 

But that would still leave Citizens 
Against Waste shy 20 to 30 million signa- 
tures on that petition, even if these mil- 
lions all signed up. And so far, Grace and 
Anderson have only a million names to 
show for all their efforts. It may take 
something more, Grace admits darkly, 
and he recalls a conversation he had with 
a TV- talk-show host during a commercial 
break. "He was street-smart, done some 
reading on his own. He said to me, 
"When, in modern history, has there ever 
been a movement like this — asking for a 
turnabout as massive as this — when have 
things been changed without people in 
the street?' " What about people in the 
street? "Revolution," says Peter Grace. 
"Marching on Washington, violence in 
some form." 

Since it hasn't quite come to that yet, 
how far has Grace got with his fantasy? 
Even Charles Bowsher of the GAO con- 
cedes that there is more acceptance of 
the commission's recommendations than 
existed a year ago. "Maybe not exactly as 
worded," he cautions, "but Peter Grace 
has been quite successful in getting them 

ly. "I have zero interest in political life." 
His close associates insist they can't see 
him, temperamentally, as part of any ad- 
ministration team. 

Besides, to impart such ambitions to 
Grace is to misread the fantasy. He com- 
mitted himself to forming the Grace 
Commission precisely because he had 
reached that stage in life at which he could 
tell anybody, or anything, including the 
U.S. government, exactly what he thinks 
ought to be done. 

In fact, it is almost as if the irascible 
fashion in which Peter Grace operates 
has made him a good gadfly, despite his 
bad arithmetic. Going after the net-net, 
nagging people over every last detail to 
be sure a thing is done — that seems to be 
his impact, however hyped his numbers 
may be. 

Glory days: Founder W. R. Grace. 

more attention. That's the advantage of 
the Grace Commission." 

In fact, when Grace had a pre-Christ- 
mas meeting with the president, Reagan 
greeted him in the Oval Office, wearing a 
caw bumper sticker across his chest: 


in our wallet. "I'm a hero-worshiper," 
Grace says. The president, three years 
ago, was looking for a bloodhound; what 
he got, in Peter Grace, was a bulldog. Te- 
nacious. Ready to latch onto the throat of 
the federal bureaucracy and let nothing, 
including Congress, shake or beat him 
loose. "I believe in being loyal to the peo- 
ple who brought us down here," Grace 
says. "Get as much as we can adopted, 
and that's it."

crat. He came suddenly into the public 
eye in 1880. when the boilers blew on the 
Long Island Sound commuting steamer 
Sewanhaka off Hell Gate. The steamer's 
captain was cut off on the bridge by the 
blaze. So Cap'n Grace and his sea-dog 
wife took the situation in hand, calmed 
the panicking passengers, arranged their 
escape, and saved scores of lives. He was 
elected as a hero and promptly put the 
city's finances in balance, the police and 
street-cleaning departments on a busi- 
nesslike basis. 

Do the Grace genes carry political am- 
bitions? "I'm doing this as a cost-cutter, 
not a politician," Peter Grace says sharp- 

rives at the Westchester air- 
port. The Gulfstream II 
waits across the runway, 
distinguishable by the 
Grace-green racing stripe 
along its white fuselage. 

Peter Grace climbs aboard, goes right 
to work at his desk, banked by two stereo 
speakers. It may not be the old glamour 
of the Grace Line, but it is definitely 
high-tech corporate power. "Don't you 
get your mail the same day, the way I 
do?" Grace suddenly barks at an under- 
ling on theplane.who seems to have been 
too slow in responding to a letter. 

"How does it all feel?" Grace asks 
himself, with a gravelly sigh, settling in for 
his flight to St. Louis. "Tiring." 

But that has never stopped him from 
pursuing any interest to its final, exhaus- 
tive bit of information, e.g., that Trap- 
ist-Zen Buddhist health-food-cookie 

A subsequent call to Zen teacher Ber- 
nard reveals: (1) "Two days later, he 
drove up in the limousine with his secre- 
tary to the Greyston Cafe, which is our 
big local outlet here, and bought $130 
worth of our pastries." (2) "And we get a 
call that his vice-president for food, 
somebody named Soliman" — Anwar So- 
liman, Group Executive, Restaurant 
Group — "wants to visit us. But it was the 
day we were seeing the Rockefeller peo- 
ple, so we postponed, and the next day, 
Soliman brings along Joe Amendola to 
check us out! You know, Joe is with the 
Culinary Institute of America — that's the 
best there is — and he even takes one of 
my recipes back so he can teach it at the 
Culinary Institute. What's going on with 
this Peter Grace?" 

We'll all know more when he's had a 
look at the numbers, or, net-net, finished 
eating the pastries. ■■■

well on the Upper West Side. Za- 
bar's provided the smoked fish and 
bagels, and you provided the place. 
Restaurants, however, were another 
matter. Today, even by comparison 
with parts of town that were industrial 
deserts when the West Side was mature, 
they are still another matter. But the 
neighborhood is changing. Rapidly for 
the worse — consider, for example, Co- 
lumbus Avenue. But, also, slowly for the 
better — consider, for example, these ten 
places. Only one of them existed fifteen 
years ago. In fact, only a few of them

vice-president. They are all proof that a 
restaurant need not be terrible to make it 
north of West 72nd Street. 


a night, the slight din of this 
place is penetrated by a dis- 
cordant chorus of "Happy 
Birthday" or "Happy Anni- 
versary." (Sometimes mem- 
bers of the restaurant staff are part of the 
problem, singing along as they parade a 
cake and candles to the joyous table.) For 
the Terrace is like Niagara Falls — it has 
nothing to do with anybody's life, people 
just go there on special occasions. 
Among members of the academic and 
medical high societies around Columbia 
University and the nearby medical cen- 
ters, celebrating at the Terrace confers 
official importance on even the most rit- 
ualistic observance. But aside from its 
accepted status as the place for partying 
in this part of town, the restaurant's prin- 
cipal assets — the occasional terrific dish 
notwithstanding — are geographic: The 
Terrace purveys the only unmistakably 
fancy French food for a couple of miles 
around, and it is situated on the top (six- 
teenth) floor of Columbia's Butler Hall — 
the circumference of the room is virtually 
a ribbon of glass, and its sight lines pro- 
vide views of the glittering city and 
beyond, including every bejeweled 
bridge that touches on Manhattan Island. 
Those views, the cushy, dimly lighted in- 
terior — mirrored walls, plush velvet ban- 
quettes, flickering candles on the white- 
linened tables — and the arpeggiations of 
a harmless harpist make a setting that is 
just as romantic as any waterfall. 

From a list of first courses that is al- 
most exclusively seafood: perfectly de- 
cent but unexceptional Scottish smoked 
salmon, supple and of clear flavor, but 
without the complexity or subtlety of 
Scotland's best — it is served with sprigs 
of dill, capers, and a bit of chopped onion 
in a tired leaf of endive; fresh poached 
oysters, each of them over a dollop of 
not-especially-earthy duxelles, served in 
a creamy white-wine sauce that is nicely 
browned just before serving; yet another 
tired leaf of endive, this one holding the 
herbed mayonnaise that garnishes two 
wet slices of pink, pickle-studded, and 
somewhat pallid crayfish terrine; and.

the winner, the so-called lobster salad, a 
half-crustacean that is carefully poached 
and then cooled to room temperature 
just before it is served — with that same 
dressing, shredded vegetables mingled 
with sweet peas, and slivers of merely 
decorative truffle. 

But you can get a poached fillet of 
striped bass here that is skinless, bone- 
less, and tasteless — except for that 
vaguely kerosene flavor that poorly se- 
lected bass has these days. The some- 
times available roast pigeon lacks just 
about utterly the almost chocolate sharp- 
ness you find in the best of those birds. 

From the Terrace: Sylvia Kowalczuk. 

The roast duck is better, its meat moist 
and tasty of duck fat but without fatti- 
ness. The sweetbreads come in thin 
slices, and you wish the surfaces had a 
crispness to contrast with the meat's nat- 
ural pinguidity — still, you cannot fault 
the dark port sauce in which they are 
served. A better job of browning is per- 
formed on the medaillons of veal — the 
two little steaks are in a creamy sauce in 
which the billed morels are present in an 
amount sufficient only to tease. The lamb 
chops are cut from a rack, are rather 
mild for lamb, are garnished with mush- 
room caps in each of which you will find 
a bit of pureed mint — which is too bad 
for the mushrooms and irrelevant to the

der of cheese with a melon bailer. Hap- 
pily, the apple that is part of the dish 
does not get that treatment — it comes in 
slices. What goes as a raspberry napo- 
leon is a simple thing of ripe berries and 
good whipped cream between sheets of 
dark, flaky pastry, the whole set in a 
deep-red raspberry purde. The Linzer 
torte is of powerfully nut-flavored pastry 
around raspberry preserves that have an 
almost liquorlike strength. There is a 
chocolate dessert that is moist and po- 
tent, rich whipped cream between the 
layers of almost black cake.

quite recently — pizza, steam- 
table spaghetti, and the univer- 
sal red sauce were about all 
that went for Italian food on 
Manhattan's vast Upper West 
Side. If you strolled the neighborhood in 
those days, wherever you went, there 
were the natives accosting one another 
on the street to enter into passionate ex- 
changes on the subject of why cannot we 
have real Italian food over here like what 
they have downtown and crosstown? 
Now at last, the West Side has at least 
some of it. This place has been purveying 
the Upper West's best Italian food for a 
couple of years now. 

Santerello is very much your snug 
side-street repair, brick-walled and low- 
ceilinged, carpeted, candlelit, dim. You 
will probably not notice the art that is 
casually hung on the walls, but the bursts 
of flowers here and there are illuminated 
by ceiling track lights, and they are the 
bright spots in the room. Almost as 
bright are the waiters. They are conver- 
sant with the menu and discuss it with 
you in the manner of one human being to 
another. On the L pper West Side, that is 
the equivalent of Finding a resident string 
quartet in an SRO hotel. 

These gents will inform you, for exam- 
ple, that the marinated-seafood appetizer 
is of squid and scallops, shrimp and mus- 

50 NEW YORK/ FEBRUARY l8, 1985 

sels, and even tender little clams, all firm 
and fresh in their lemony dressing. The 
mozzarella fritta is a simple thing, blocks 
of cheese, battered and deep-fried — the 
cheese is warm and pully within its crisp 
surfaces, plain and utterly satisfying, 
quite lively when you squeeze on lemon. 
If the words "sfogliata ripieno" do not 
call to mind a vivid image, imagine a cou- 
ple of slices cut from a long, plump, 
warm strudel — the pastry wrapper is at 
once flaky and rich with fat, and it is 
filled with a hot, light, and well-seasoned 
stuffing of meat and cheese. 

You may have your red sauce dotted 
with shrimp in the dish of thin spaghetti 
that goes as capellini d'angelo con gam- 
beri. Or you may have it spicy, as part of 
the fusilli (corkscrew-shaped pasta) all' 
amatriciana — this one is a bit smoky of 
its Italian bacon. Or you may have it fra- 
grantly herbed as in the linguine alia 
Santerello — this sauce is hardly more 
than hot slices of tomato, and it is thick 
with salty ham, and heady with fresh 

Each day there is a fish of the day — 
you have reason to suspect that when 
there are two of them, yesterday's has be- 
come today's. Sometimes it is broiled 
swordfish — fresh, fibrous but still moist, 
and enriched with butter that is made 
sharp and tangy with lime and minced 
chives. But Santerello has served a dish 
that could be called .tuna with a past. 
Scampi here are more than what that 
word usually means — the shrimp are big 
and crunchy, and they are browned in a 
garlicky, oregano-flavored butter that is 
thickened with bread crumbs, Parmesan 
cheese, and slivers of ham. 

Good chicken dishes: one of them the 
breast in a pungent Gorgonzola sauce 
that is populated with bits of ham and 
fresh green peas; the other the legs, 
which are slit, stuffed with herbed ri- 
cotta, and served in a weighty sauce of 
tomato and zucchini. At least one good 
veal dish: artfully saut6ed scallops of the 
pearly meat in a strongly seasoned 
cream-and-Marsala sauce that is dense 
with fresh mushrooms. And good combi- 
nations: for one example, the spezzatino 
di vitello Santerello, wherein chunks of 
chicken, veal, and shrimp are stewed and 
served in a powerfully tarragon-flavored 
sauce that is textured with rice; for an- 
other, the spiedini alia uccelletto, an as- 
semblage, on a skewer, of marinated veal 
and sausages with slices of bacon, the 
row broiled and blackened a little and 
served on rice. 

You are advised to conclude your din- 

ner with the good house cheese — more 
than respectable Parmesan and provo- 
lone are usually on hand — and some 
fresh greens in a bright vinaigrette, for 
the sweet desserts may well turn you off 
upon presentation: Examples of each of 
the four are crowded onto a plate set at 
the center of your table. Your slight in- 
terest in this excessive display declines 
even further when your waiter, presuma- 
bly acting on instructions, points with an 
index finger at each sweet — at a range of 
about three inches — and describes. For 
the record, a dark cake allegedly made of 
macaroons is rather breadlike, and a 
mountainous item of pastry, whipped 
cream, and Grand Marnier is merely a 
mound of goodies. The cannoli — a crisp 
pastry tube filled with rich, thick custard 
and bits of candied fruit — is a perfectly 
good example of the thing. 

You can get a bottle of wine for as little 
as $9.50. Three courses and coffee will be 
around $22, plus tax and tip.

dlelight of this small, low- 
ceilinged store, that the 
brick walls are here and 
there pitted and patched, 
and that the pictures there- 
on disagree among themselves as to 
which way lies plumb. You note that the 
insulation is beginning to peel away from 
the hot-water pipe, and that six different 
kinds of chairs are placed around the 
dozen and a half tables. You find gold 
strands sprouting from the rim of your 
plastic bread basket, and you judge that, 
at best, these are yesterday's flowers in 
the five-and-dime glass vases that, de- 
spite their minuscularity, occupy more 
room than can be spared on the wee ta- 
bletops. So you conclude that Bistro 79 is 
an ill-run place — until you get the menu. 
Your copy, you notice, is wrinkled and 
stained, and for a moment it appears that 
the seemingly historic document only 
confirms your first impressions. But then 
you look more closely, actually read the 
words that are printed on the frayed 
pasteboard, and you realize that Bistro 79 
is not going downhill at all, but, rather, 
that it is going its own (sic) way. Where 
else in town, for example, can you be 
served "La Salade De Ceasears," or "Les 
Filet De Sole Meunicre," or "Le Petit

Naturally if you are unadventurous, 
you will be inclined to stay away. But be 
assured that, though many of the dishes 
on the menu are unknown off 79th 
Street, even the most esoteric of them 
mimic (and not so subtly either) the side 
of French cooking called la cuisine hour- 
geoise. For example, listed under "Les 
Hors d'Oeurves" (rhymes with tres sore 
nerves) you will find a dish called moules 
ravigotte, which, aside from the fact that 
it has gotte an extra /, is virtually identi- 
cal to mussels in sauce ravigote — it con- 
sists in fact of over a dozen of the little 
mollusks in their half-shells, cool and 
fresh and sweet-tasting (a minor miracle 
for mussels these days), under a tart, 

herbed dressing that is dense with 
chopped shallots. The oysters are opened 
only when you order them, they are fresh 
and cold and sparkling, and though they 
are served with a harshly acidic sauce 
mignonnette, you can ignore that, for 
they are fine with nothing at all, or with 
lemon — with or without a few grains 
from the pepper mill. Of course there is 
pflt6, but it is of a gritty texture and an 
almost violently salty taste. Have instead 
the hot sausage — three big slices of it, 
rimmed with flaky pastry, sweet-spiced 
and redolent of garlic, very good with its 
strong Dijon mustard. 

You get a good coq au vin here, the 
bird itself of vivid chicken flavor, the red- 
wine sauce dark and sticky and strongly 
seasoned. The veal dijonnaise is of pale, 

delicate meat nicely browned in the sau- 
tding — the scallops are served in a mildly 
mustard-flavored sauce that is thick with 
slivers of mushroom. The aforemen- 
tioned "Petit Carre Diagneau Persile" is 
explicated as "Baby Rack of Lambs 
Breads Crumbs Garlic Parsley." You 
order it anyway, and get half a dozen lit- 
tle chops cut from a carefully roasted 
rack, their edges covered with a crisp, 
garlic- flavored breading — the sauce, of 
poorly doctored roasting-pan juices, can- 
not undo the goodness of the pink meat. 
The plain steak (the menu identifies it as 
a "sirlion") is a nicely grilled slab of beef, 
and the French fries that come with it are 
thin and crisp. 

The strawberries are ripe, and you may 
have yours with a cold sauce sabayon 
that tastes more of sugary sweetness than 
Marsala wine. The syruped apple tart is 
on a dull pastry, and the not especially 
rich whipped cream helps only a little. 
The chocolate cake is intense under its 
black icing, crunchy with nuts as well. 

On the short list, there are good 
French regional wines at as little as $10. 
Three courses and coffee will be around 
$25, plus tax and tip.

E, XCEPT for "health food"

I nese restaurants are really ac-

. set. And except for certain 
M Japanese customers (those 
groups of businessmen who seem to 
smoke and drink as if bent on calling up 
Prohibition days), the crowd in Japanese 
restaurants will sometimes seem as trim, 
erect, and scrubbed as the corps de ballet 
just out of the shower. Of course this is 
especially noticeable here on the youth- 
ful and wanton Upper West Side, where 
nourishment in eating places is at best a 
secondary agenda. And you cannot miss 
it in Akaihana, a bright and shiny box of 
a place that lures the sound-body types 
not only with its bean curd, seaweed, and 
raw fish but also with a setting, of play- 
fully angulate lines and nursery colors, 
that is notably neat and clean — though it 
manages to skirt the antiseptic with artful 
whimsy. The sushi bar, which cuts across 
a corner at the back of the dining room, 
has as its brilliant backdrop a zigzag wall 
(like a folding screen) of vivid Chinese- 
red enamel. 

If you want to look like you belong, 
you will use chopsticks, and you will sit 
up straight. Leaning forward to shorten 
the haul is not done. Under the circum- 
stances, you may find sashimi easier to

bundles. The fluke sashimi is of vivid

brightness, the raw fillets intertwined 
with slivers of lemon; the pungency of 
mackerel is easy to take when the fish it- | 
self is fresh; and the likes of yellowtail 
and sea bass, though these are not espe- 
cially flavorful fish, are brought to life by 
the leaves of fresh ginger with which they 
are served. Among the sushi items, the 
octopus is of exceptional silkiness — a 
shaft of it is served belted to a block of 
rice with a band of deep-green seaweed. 
But if you come here when the three 
principal kinds of tuna are on hand, it is 
well to concentrate on those, for they set 
one another off smartly. The regular tuna 
is dark red and beefy, the toro (fatty tuna) 
mild and of an almost fluffy texture, the 
bonito fibrous and a little high. All of 
them make good sushi. 

From among the two dozen dishes list- 
ed as appetizers (some of which are also 
listed as main courses, or can be convert- 
ed to same by ordering a double portion): 
kaibashira furai, three plump, rich, deep- 
fried sea scallops, their flavor clear, their 
surfaces browned and crisp; hijiki, cool 
sea-gamy seaweed mixed with strands of 
root vegetable and flavored, strikingly, 
with ginger; agedofu, blocks of soft bean 
curd, deep-fried until their surfaces are 
firmed, served in a dark and salty soy 
sauce that is dotted with button mush- 
rooms; kara-age, chunks of boned chick-

out of the deep fryer, served with mus-

tard and oranges — the citrus makes the 
dish seem a bit Chinese; shumai, little 
steamed noodle dumplings stuffed with a 
spicy pork forcemeat — you eat them with 
a fiery mustard; and negimayaki, sheets 
of beef wrapped around shafts of scal- 
lion — the meat is rare, and the gently 
cooked scallions retain some of their 

Shio is a method of broiling fish in its 
skin, with much salt, that causes the fat 
under the skin to permeate the meat — to 
excellent effect when things work out 
right. Akaihana prepares salmon this 
way (salmon shioyaki) and removes the 
salty skin before serving it — sure enough, 
the meat is not itself very salty, but its 
flavor is notably enriched. And the place 
frequently offers a deep-fried sea bass, 
the big slices of it reassembled into the 
entire beast minus its bones — it comes 
off as an especially buttery fish, the 
crusty surface moist with oil and lightly 
soured with vinegar. 

Fresh fruit is usually available for des- 
sert, as well as those peculiar Japanese 
ice creams. Sake is very good with this 
food, and it is $2.50 the hot little pitcher. 
Japanese beers are $2.25 the bottle, $3.50 
for a big bottle of the excellent Sapporo 
"draft." You can eat for as little as $12 
per person, but go heavy on the sushi and 
choose one of the more expensive main 
courses, and you can easily spend more 
than $20, plus tax and tip.

the stairs leading to this second- 
story place, looked up, considered 
the prospect, and gone elsewhere, 
come back and look again. That 
run-down stairwell has been ren- 
ovated. Pale-blue paint and daintily pat- 
terned pale-blue paper now cover the 
lumpy walls, and the missing banister has 
been screwed back into place. It is not 
exactly alluring, but it is no longer fright- 
ening. What is still frightening is the fel- 
low behind the service bar just inside the 
restaurant door at the top of the stairs. 
He is a member of the proprietorial staff, 
and his aspect is that of the presiding 
zombie, whose power is such that it need 
never be used. He sits, still as a monu- 
ment, his eyes at half-mast, overseeing 
without looking. Meanwhile, within a 
few yards of his mooring, his waitress, 
working enough tables for a team of 
three plus a host and busboy, is running 
herself into marathon condition right be- 
fore his very eyelids. Presently she flies to 
him to requisition a glass of wine. He 
rushes to fill her order at the speed of 
Frankenstein's monster responding to 
the telephone. The waitress, of course, is 
a college girl, and this is the Columbia 
University neighborhood, but the spirit 
of classless academia has not entered 
here, for the patron knows precisely 
where his duties end and his underlings' 
begin — which may be just as instruc- 
tional to the young lady as her liberal- 
arts program. 

The establishment in which she is get- 
ting this tuition-free side of her educa- 
tion is a brick-and-wood shell of a place, 
odd-shaped by way of one diagonal wall 
that is stocked with wine and topped with 
a mirror that leans forward, providing an 
overview of the room to those not direct- 
ly under it. There are posters on the 
walls, plants here and there. An old chest 
of drawers is the coffee station. You eat 
at unlinened tables of sealed oak. Withal, 
the place is comfortable, and it gets a 
crowd that ranges from cohabiting un- 
dergraduates wearing, apparently, each 
other's clothing to tenured ladies and 
gentlemen in elbow-patched tweed jack- 
ets and Shetland sweaters. 

The people behind Au Grenier are ca- 
terers as well as restaurateurs, so when 

you have the grilled-mussel appetizer 
and find that it is of bivalves that have not 
been properly sorted or cleaned, you 
conclude that the extensive list of pat6s 
and salads (deliverable food) is the sec- 
tion of the menu from which to choose 
your first course. The country pfitS is 
coarse and pungently seasoned, just the 
right color of pink at the center of the 
hefty slices, very good with its strong 
mustard. And if the venison and rabbit 
pfitds are not exactly redolent of the ju- 
niper berries and armagnac with which, 
respectively, they are ostensibly pre- 
pared, their distinctive meat flavors make 
them fine alternatives to the standard 
pat6 de campagne. The lentil salad is an 
utterly satisfying bulk of the peppered lit- 
tle beans mingled with bits of onion and 
pimiento, all in a tart and well-herbed 
mustard vinaigrette. 

Au Grenier is not, however, all picnic 
food. It actually has its pretensions. Your 
salmon, for example, is served "en che- 
mise," which is to say wrapped, with 
spinach and sauteed onions, in a flaky 
pastry, the entire production set in a 
smooth white sauce that is flavored with 
herbs and mushrooms. But most of the 
food here, whatever it is called, is hefty. 
The poulet a l'estragon, for example, 
consists of both halves of a substantial 
chicken breast, browned but still moist, 
in a garlicky and tarragon-flavored 
mushroom sauce. You get fine sweet- 
breads, the thin slices of rich meat sau- 
tded until crisp, served in a tart, dark 
sauce that is thick with shallots. An order 
of roast pork is three giant slices that ap- 
pear to have been browned after they 
were cut from the roast — the pale, juicy, 
weighty meat is livened with a buttery 
dill sauce. The choucroute is a big 
mound of strong sauerkraut, studded 
with juniper berries and overlaid with 
inches of dark and spicy sausage, lengths 
of a pink and smoky one, and slabs of 
that good roast pork — winter food. Natu- 
rally, in a place of this kind, there is 
boeuf bourguignonne. This one is a little 
soupy, but its sauce has a good complex- 
ity of flavor — of wine and herbs, vegeta- 
bles and garlic — and the meat is fine. 

Au Grenier obtains good pastries but 
sometimes serves them a little too cold or 
a little toe old or both. At their best, the 
apricot and lemon tarts have a fruity 
sprightliness, the ganache has a deep 
chocolate intensity, and the napoleon a 
creamy richness, but you cannot depend 
on any of them being themselves. 

Much is made of wine, with several 
items on the long list offered by the glass. 
But get here a little late, and the house 
will claim to be out of this or that rather 
than open a bottle to sell you less than all 
of it. Bottles are $12 and up. Three 
courses and coffee will come to around 
$20, plus tax and tip.

This restaurant's spiffy 
little bar — with the polished 
mirror behind it reflecting 
the rows of glinting bottles — 
seems like a modern ap- 
pliance in a primitive kitch- 
en. From the looks of the floor, it appears 
that someone attempted to paint it — and 
failed. On your second look at the ceil- 
ing, you realize that the acoustic tiles are 
really squares of plywood. When the in- 
stallers were surfacing these walls, they 
chose one material — and then, when that 
ran out, another, so there is pastel-blue 
paint, vaguely patterned wallpaper, white 
brick, and, at the back, a wall that is al- 
most entirely mirrored. Withal, the place 
is not ramshackle, is in fact cheery, and it 

shrimp, and slices of good browned beef, 
each mingled with crisp vegetables, 
among them cucumbers, peppers, on- 
ions, scallions, and snow peas, all in a 
fiery lime-juice dressing. The makeup 
and proportions of these added ingre- 
dients vary from squid to shrimp to beef, 
and also from time to time, but the salads 
are especially stimulating when fresh and 
fragrant coriander leaves are present in 
abundance. You may think of sates as 
Indonesian or Malaysian dishes, but they 
are part of Thai cooking as well. A small 
order of chicken sate consists of three 
substantial lengths of white meat that 
have been flavored with a spicy and fruity 
marinade. The shafts of meat are impaled 
on wood skewers, broiled until they are 
flecked with black but still moist and 
shiny, and served with a thick peanut 
sauce that is sweet and spicy. Naturally 
the Thai noodle dish called mee krob is 
on the menu here — this is a great tangle 
of deep-fried rice noodles (in this version 
dotted with bits of pork and a few

Though the first section of the menu is 
headed "Appetizers," for a really rousing

the squid salad, shrimp salad, and beef

fresh and tender squid, whole crunchy

You get a nicely deep-fried whole fish 
here, the surface crusty, the pale meat 
moist and flaky and fresh-tasting — it ar- 
rives under a spicy-hot sauce that is thick 
with red peppers and peas, and with 
chunks of pineapple that are a striking 
note in this setting. What is given as 
"chicken curry (green)" reaches you as a 
steel pot of hot, oiled broth (mostly coco- 
nut milk) that is laden with strands of

coconut, red peppers, sweet green peas, 
and an abundance of good chicken. If 
you come to this place just once, do not 
miss the marinated rabbit, which consists 
of large chunks of the saut6ed meat, 
lightly crisped and tender, mingled with 
more of this establishment's ever-present 
sweet peas, and moistened with a spicy 
sauce that is redolent of garlic. 

Western desserts seem bizarre after 
Thai food, but to satisfy what must be a 
real demand, the restaurant obtains a 
good chocolate cake.

tt. Cafe Central is two parallel 
dining rooms bridged by a bar- 
room at the north end. The 
place is big, with oak floors un- 
derfoot, a maroon ceiling far 
overhead, brick or stained-wood panel- 
ing all around, lofty archways between 
the rooms, and tall windows looking out 
on Columbus Avenue. 

The establishment is frequented by two 
overlapping sets. Try for a drink at the 
long, curved bar (which occupies a raised 
platform running most of the length of 
the crosspiece of that pi), and you find 
yourself in a crowd of young citizens of 
all genders who are about the business of 
meeting others like or unlike themselves, 
often with sex aforethought. Occasional- 
ly, when things have gone swimmingly, a 
pair formed at the bar will get themselves 
to a table, presumably for the purpose of 
learning each other's names. But mostly 
the dining room is occupied by less im- 
pulsive sorts, for when the original Cafe 
Central was situated on Amsterdam 
Avenue, a few blocks southwest of here, 
it was one of the few West Side eating- 
and-drinking places where the young ha- 
bitues were of a somewhat bohemian, 
even intellectual, bent — anyway, writers 
went there. Today, of course, that set is 
clambering hard up media ladders, and 
the Central is something of an Elaine's 
West. Consider, for example, this beard- 
ed young gentleman in pleated dress 
shirt, suspenders, sunglasses, and fedora 
as he pats the limp hand of a young lady 
who is high on dreams of TV starletdom. 
She gazes mutely into his big black 

54 NEW YORK/ FEBRUARY l8, 1985 

lenses, and smiles but does not breathe. 

Later, she adoringly sketches his like- 
ness, for the Cafe is one of those places 
that saves money by using butcher paper 
for table linen, and cutely trades on the 
economy by setting on each table a 
tumbler of crayons. While sketching, she 
contentedly swallows each of her raw 
clams, though they are less than fresh 
and come with a feeble cocktail sauce. 

Cafe Central: You can doodle while you 

Another time, she gets them as clams 
Cassino, and on this occasion she is 
lucky, for the tiny mollusks are sweet, 
and though they are hot in their half- 
shells, they have not been toughened — 
they are delicately surfaced with a brown 
breading dotted with bits of bacon. Melt- 
ed mozzarella is a holdover from the old 
Cafe's menu. These days, you get a big 
plate covered over with the browned and 
pully stuff, disks of hot tomato and cir- 
cles of red onion over that — fun food. 
You may be distressed by the unripe mel- 
on upon which the abundance of good, 
strong prosciutto is draped, but have that 
anytime rather than the pate\ which is 
icy and gooey. 

There are a handful of pasta dishes, 
among them a seafood item that goes as 
linguine fra diavolo — the firm noodles 
are dressed with a sturdy red sauce that 
is heavily populated with fish and shell- 
fish. On occasion, the Central essays the 
difficult task of grilling thin slices of 

swordfish — and gets away with it, the 
pale crosshatched steaks reaching you 
cooked through but still moist, their 
tender and fibrous texture intact. The 
place turns out a terrific veal chop, pale 
and juicy and handsomely browned — its 
mustard-cognac sauce is beside the 
point. The steak au poivre is so coated 
with whole peppercorns that the meat is 
robbed of its beefiness. 

You can see the dessert 
cart coming, for it is four lev- 
els high and sports flaming 
candles. It also sports fresh 
nut-studded brownies that 
you may have with ice cream 
and strong chocolate sauce; 
an inelegant pie of nutted 
fudge over a corn-syrup 
filler — the addition of 
whipped cream actually 
tones it down; a peach 
cobbler of sugary, syrupy 
fruit, chunks of crust, and a 
big dollop of whipped 
cream; a hazelnut-lemon 
cheesecake of an excep- 
tional richness under its 
thick layer of white icing; 
and the winner (for its com- 
parative subtlety), a pound 
cake that is peppered with 
poppy seeds and coated with 
a light, lemony glaze. 

You will be able to get a 
decent bottle of wine for $14 
or so. Three courses and cof- 
dine. fee will be around $25, plus 

tax and tip.

gled to make of itself a mir- 
ror image of the prosperous 
arrondissement on the oth- 
er side of Central Park, it 
became inevitable that the 
success of clubby Italian restaurant-sa- 
loons over there would engender emula- 
tion over here. But, as common wisdom 
unerringly has it, new money is rarely 
content with received values. Rather, it is 
impelled — compulsively — to "improve" 
on the past. So a restaurateur (if he is at- 
tuned to the tastes of the brownstone 
renovators and co-op insiders who are 
converting the West Seventies and Eight- 
ies into a bedroom community for 
Bloomingdale's) knows that, good as a 


restaurant may be, it would surely be bet- 
ter with, say, a mirrored ceiling. Cava- 
liere's got one, you bet. And the West 
Siders come here in numbers, of a notion 
that what they are getting is what the 
city's best new Italian restaurants have 
recently brought to other parts of town. 

You enter to the barroom, which, like 
the rest of this softly lighted place, is 
painted boudoir pink. The big three-sid- 
ed bar (shaped like half a hexagon) is sur- 
faced with dark-green marble and 
framed with pale wood, and it is often oc- 
cupied not only by drinkers but by soli- 
tary eaters. Cavaliere's is, in fact, the only 
bar in town at which ladies have been ad- 
vanced upon with the proposal "May I 
buy you a mixed green salad?" That over- 
head mirroring is in the dining room on 
your left — it is low, almost within reach, 
and, though it was probably intended to 
"raise" the ceiling, what it raises is the 
roof, for the glass reflects not only the 
view but the vociferous conversation of 
those who crowd this place. The floor is 
carpeted, chromium light fixtures gleam 
on the walls, and there are potted palms 
in just about every corner. Track lights 
are focused on the grotesque blowups of 
seashells and flowers with which the 
walls are hung, and on the single red rose 
that — in a little vase — stands on the mar- 
ble mantel over the fireplace. The so- 
called garden room at the back is no 
more outdoors than the rest of the place, 
but here you look up, through a skylight 
that extends over most of the room, at the 
stars, and at the lighted windows of high- 
rise apartment buildings on 72nd Street 
and of brownstones on 73rd. 

Then you look down, at a seafood sal- 
ad of conch and shrimp, octopus and 
squid and scallops, with strands of onion, 
all in a lemony dressing that is powerful- 
ly flavored with dill — the seafood started 
out in good shape but has been too long 
in this marinade to have much of its 
oceanic character left. The salad of arti- 
choke hearts — with provolone, onions, 
and mushrooms — benefits from the same 
good dressing and suffers from the same 
prematurity of preparation. But the fried 
squid must be made to order, for these 
are light and crisp little ringlets, and they 
come with a solid if undistinguished to- 
mato sauce. More of that sauce accom- 
panies the fried mozzarella, but the hot, 
pully stuff is best when you squeeze lem- 
on onto its crisped-batter surface. 

The paglia e fieno, a combination of 
green and white noodles, is fine in its 
creamy tomato sauce dotted with fresh 
green peas, bits of ham, and tender 
strands of onion. On a good night, the 
place puts out a first-class pesto sauce 
made with strong, nutty cheese — it is 
heady with the fragrance of fresh basil. 
The fettuccine al filetto di pomodoro is a 
sad version — this dish longs for noodles 
that are fresh and eggy, but here it is

BASS PR0F0ND0: Hunan Balcony's sea bass 
is a monumental production, the surface fried 
crisp, the meat buttery and moist. 

made with pale, dried ones, which some- 
times reach you almost hard; and you 
wish this were a sweet, chunky tomato 
sauce instead of a paste. 

You get a nice enough salmon steak, 
fresh and with much of its flavor present, 
but the garlic and lemon that are part of 
its billing are remote. The zuppa di pesce 
is notable for the powerful flavor of the 
Pernod with which its winy broth is forti- 
fied — the assorted fish and shellfish 
therein are not bad, either. In yet another 
complex assemblage, the polio conta- 
dina, chunks of chicken, morsels of 
strong sausage, and nuggets of beef are 
all combined with mushrooms and pep- 
pers, potatoes and onions — it is the kind 
of food that compensates for its inele- 
gance with pungency and weight. The 
veal rolls are about as close as this place 
comes to a subtle, well-balanced dish, for 
the cutlets of pale meat are wrapped 
around an herbed and well-seasoned fill- 
ing of ham and cheese, and the rolls are 
then saut6ed until their surfaces are 
browned and their contents steamy — the 
bundles are served in a white-wine sauce 
that is thick with slivers of mushroom. 
What is called a rack of lamb is really a 
handful of little chops that are individ- 
ually broiled — which is too bad, for these 
are tiny baby chops and they almost 
inevitably lose their blood juiciness if 
cooked even a moment too long, as they 
are here. The chops are served with a jig- 
ger of emerald-green jelly. 

Cavaliere is an Italian restaurant, but 
you cannot get a slice of cheese here 
after dinner. In place of the cheese you 
wanted with your otherwise fine arugula 
salad, you get sand. But if not cheese, you 
can get cheesecake, and it is pretty 
good — made with ricotta, it is at once 
light and firm, brown-topped, a little wet, 
sugary. All night the sound of the whisk 
is heard — in the front room — banging 
around inside the copper pot. Still, when 
you order zabaglione, what you get is a 
third of a wineglass of the stuff, and it is 
soupy — try to pick some up with a fork, 
and you come up with a damp fork. But 
that does not surprise you, for your back- 
room waiter did not really want to accept 
the order, and whoever he persuaded to 
make it wished to discourage him from 
such temerity again. You have to be 
doing business directly with the captain 
to get a good one. The chocolate cake is 
dense under its thick layer of black icing. 
Another decent chocolate cake — called 
Grand Marnier cake — has a layer of mar- 
malade at its center. If you get the poppy- 
seed cake when it is fresh, it is a light and 

spicy and creamy thing. But when it is 
past its peak, it is dry and heavy. 

The wine (from one of those lists with 
descriptions like "soft and distinctive" or 
"deep, rich, dry, mid-bodied, long finish") 
is $1 1 the bottle and up. Three courses 
and coffee will be about $25, plus tax 
and tip.

Italians, or Japanese were in 
this neighborhood in more 
than token numbers, the Chi- 
nese — usually in huge, garish, 
and tawdry-looking places — 
were working the territory for the value 
in it that others shunned. In fact, much of 
what eventually became trendy in New 
York's Chinese restaurants had its origin 
on upper Broadway. One of the city's 
first Sichuan restaurants — named Sze- 
chuan — was up here, as was one of the 
earliest links in the Shun Lee chain. In 
the sixties and seventies, dominance in 
this Chinese league depended on the un- 
predictable movements of chefs behind 
the scenes. No sooner would you figure 
out which was the top place, and begin to 
make a habit of it, than the food would 
fall apart one night, right under your 
poised chopsticks: Another good cook 
had accepted a better offer, and it was 
time once again to reexplore the area. 

Lately, the situation has stabilized, al- 
beit not at a very high culinary level. 
These days when you get to know a stable 
West Side Chinese restaurant — get to 
know, that is, which dishes to order and 
which to avoid — you can go for years be- 
fore that awful moment when, from a 
plate of moo shu pork, you learn that it is 
time to move on. Among members of this 
relatively sedate generation of eating 
places, Hunan Balcony is among the old- 
est. Its popularity derives in part from the 
appeal of its low prices to its largely 
youthful clientele. But — and this is per- 
haps more important — many of the 
youngsters have discovered the key to 
eating well here: When selecting from 
the more than 100 dishes on the menu, 
you concentrate on the 17 in the center 
column, those headed "Hunan 

It is not just the low prices and good 
food that attract the college-age crowd. 


The boys and girls also feel right at home 
in the utterly anonymous surroundings. 
Take the beer bottles off the tables, and 
the rooms of this place could pass for the 
most functional of college dining halls. 
The differences between the downstairs 
room and the one above are principally 
matters of altitude: Both have industrial 
carpeting, linen-textured oilcloth on the 
tables, an assortment of contemporary 
side chairs, lots of hanging plants, and 
plenty of bright light. To these inviting 
surroundings the young regulars enter 
with enthusiasm, toss their outer layers 
over nearby chairs, and then order — 
sometimes before sitting down, often 
without reference to the menu. The semi- 
bilingual waiters know the dishes and 
have memorized the list of available 
beers (the drink of choice here), but if 
you want anything as complicated as, 
say, a dry Manhattan, you may get some- 
thing fruited that resembles a bourbon 

Appetizers do not appear in that all- 
important center column, and, accord- 
ingly, the fried dumplings, though hand- 
somely browned and stuffed with a tasty 
pork forcemeat, are greasy on the sur- 
face, a condition not much undone by 
the undistinguished soy sauce with 
which they are served. You stray from the 
security of the center column yet again, 
risk the cold duck with bean sauce, and 
find that the bird has been sliced in the 
Chinese manner, that is, right through 
the carcass, skeleton and all; moreover, 
the cutting was apparently done with a 
high-speed crosscut saw, for the slices of 
perfectly nice meat are riddled with bits 
of bone, and here, too, the sauce cannot 
undo the condition. 

You seek safety in the middle of the 
menu, and find it in the green jade scal- 
lops, the plump white morsels mingled 
with mushrooms, florets of fresh, deep- 
green broccoli, and slices of bright red 
pepper, the whole dish moist with good 
hot oil. Separated by a wall of sliced to- 
matoes are the two parts of shrimp and 
pork Hunan-style: on your left, a mild 
shrimp preparation, in which the good 
crustaceans are in a tangy sweet-and- 
sour sauce that is threaded with onions; 
on your right, a dark and hot-spiced pork 
dish, in which shredded vegetables and 
strands of the sweet meat are moistened 
with a nubbly sauce that is dotted with 
black beans. Whole deep-fried fish ap- 
pear on Chinese menus all over town, but 
this establishment's sea bass is a notably 
monumental production, the battered 
surface of the big beast fried crisp, the 
meat within it fresh and buttery and 
moist, the abundant sauce thick with 
vegetables, fragrantly gingered and gar- 
licked — like many of the dishes here that 
are marked with asterisks, this one is 
spicy, but far from painfully so. What 
goes as capital chicken is a nice mix of

tender chicken, sections of red pepper, 
and sprigs of fresh watercress — the last 
wilted by the hot-peppered oil that is this 
item's sauce. But the big winner is the 
lamb with walnuts — the warm, darkened, 
but still crunchy nuts retain their sharp 
flavor, which is vivid against the rich 
meat; peppers, scallions, and hot spices 
add to the liveliness of the good dish. 

For vegetables and rice, you must dare 
to try the right-hand column, and — by 
now you know what to expect — you find 
that the eggplant with garlic sauce is 
greasy, has little of the character of either 
eggplant or garlic. The sauteed water-

place lives up to its very 
decent food, but, happily, 
many of the restaurant's 
shortcomings are more 
diverting than distressing. 
One that is not, however, is something 
that a sign in the window refers to as 
"jazz," which is actually a guitar player 
and a bass player seeking guidance from 
each other. The live music, however, is 
only in the long, narrow barroom up 
front, a dimly lighted space with rattan 
stools at the bar and rattan chairs at the 
handful of tables — at which no one 
seems ever to eat. To eat, you will be led 
to the "garden" room at the back, which 
is more like a plasterboard tent with 
a tree in the middle, a peaked glass top, 
and about a dozen tables; or to the larger 
all-white dining room upstairs, which in 
summer will sport an outdoor terrace 
overlooking the panorama of 79th 
Street's two-way traffic. 

Wherever you are put, if there are just 
two of you, you will be seated at a table 
that you could hide under the Daily

the top portion of your straight-up cock- 
tail is promptly soaked into your table

until he has asked, with a sly grin,

"Which of you is the wine expert?" Then 
it is time for the ritual of the recitation of 
the special dishes of the day. These he 
reads from a sheet of paper. Then he 
hands you the sheet of paper. Either he 
wants to prove that he can read or he 
thinks that you cannot, one. Then there is 
the crowd. They take this place seriously. 
Here is this lady in copper hair and two 
black eyes pausing partway through a 
bowl of cream-of-mussel soup with saf- 
fron. Says she to the gentleman on her 
right (the one in the velvet suit and 
chains), "Why am I supposed to like 
this?" He tells her. 

If you would like a little help appre- 
ciating your so-called grilled clams, it 
could be pointed out to you that the mol- 
tusks — in their half-shells — are fresh, 
warmed through but still tender, reach 
you in a pool of slightly briny, fragrantly 
parsleyed butter that is sweetened with 
shallots. But if you are coming here only 
once, you should start your dinner with 
the boudin blanc, a juicy and sweet- 
spiced sausage of veal and chicken, 
grilled till its casing is charred, served 
with strong mustard and hot cinnamoned 
apples. Every day there is a pasta of the 
day, sometimes linguine in what is called 
"piquant tomato sauce." The noodles 
themselves are fine, firm and tender, but 
the sauce forgot to look itself up in the 
dictionary, is neither sharp nor tart nor 
biting nor pungent, is actually rather 
sweet of the onions that are much of its 
bulk — still this is a perfectly honest red 
sauce, and it can be made sturdy (but not 
piquant) by the addition of ground 

Come when brook trout is on hand, 
and you get a boned and butterflied 
whole fish, skin on, the surface of the 
pale meat handsomely crosshatched with 
grill marks, and moistened with melted 
butter that is sharpened with minced 
chives. In fact, most of the main courses 
here are grilled: tiny chicken breasts, 
which are served with a sauce of Pom- 
mery mustard; a veal chop that, you dis- 
cover too late, is not a rib chop but a loin 
chop — well made, but at $18.95 not what 
you had in mind; thick-cut calfs liver 
that gets dried out in this handling. 

Coffee toffee pie is a thick, cool, pud- 
dinglike deep-brown substance of inele- 
gantly sugary taste and syrupy texture on 
an ordinary crust — the children may love 
it. Comes the warm weather, and Julia 
serves a stunning cool poached peach — it 
is of heady fresh-fruit flavor in its deep 
pool of strawberry pur6e. 

You will be able to find a bottle of de-

tax and tip.

founding director of DTH (along with 
Karel Shook), Mitchell is known for his 
singular ideas, such as his initial premise 
that blacks could and should do classical 
dancing. The success of DTH proves he 
was right when he maintained that — de- 
spite nearly universal opinion to the con- 
trary — fifteen years ago. A recent per- 
formance at Brooklyn College, one of 
several brief engagements in and around 
the city, showed him right in subsequent 

Some years ago, Mitchell gave his 
dancers a stiff dose of pure, old-fash- 
ioned classical dancing via productions 
of Paquita and Swan Lake, Act II, then, 
in a seeming reversal of his position, 
packed the repertory with dramatic bal- 
lets. "First we went back to the nine- 
teenth century," one rebel member com- 
mented, "then we all took acting 
lessons." In retrospect, both moves were 
provident. The company now does a 
Swan Lake that is pure in style, with its 
mimed passages clear as the moonlight 
that floods the lakeside, and infused with 
sincere feeling. When Donald Williams's 
Prince Siegfried mimes to his best friend, 
"I have lost her forever," even the least 
sophisticated member of the audience 
will understand and sympathize with his 

When the company, whose talent pool 
is still limited, lost some of its best male 
dancers — Ronald Perry to American Bal- 
let Theatre, Mel Tomlinson to the New 
York City Ballet— Mitchell's public re- 
sponse was "It won't hurt us badly; it 
simply gives the others a chance." While 
his comment was undoubtedly a cover 
for anger or anguish or both, it's true that 
the remaining and up-and-coming young 
men to whom he then turned his efforts 
have risen to the occasion, although 
some of them seemed unlikely prospects. 
Eddie Shellman, for example, whose 
thickly muscled body seems made for an- 
other line of work, has become not only a 
skilled but a radiant dancer, as was evi- 
dent from his Brooklyn performance in 
the Sanguinic section of The Four 

Even Mitchell's craziest ideas have 
served a purpose — if not artistic then po- 
litical or practical. His combination of 
street and African dance with classical 
ballet in the colorful, vulgar Forces of 
Rhythm drew an unsophisticated au- 
dience that remained to cheer the Balan- 
chine-Stravinsky Agon. My quibble with 
Mitchell these days is that he's letting 
one of his very best concepts lapse. DTH 
dances a number of its works, particular- 
ly its antique ones, too timidly. But I can 
remember Mitchell, who was bred to Bal- 
anchine's principle of a bold, energetic 
attack on space, exhorting his company 
class to dance larger and fiercer, then 
gazing out over a body that had fallen in 
the attempt, crooning "Now that's some- 
thing I can work with." H

Financial planning" has become the new buzzword of the in 
vestment industry. But just as bad money drives out good, 
the cavalier use of "financial planner" by anyone handing 
out investment advice, no matter how sketchy, has made 
the title less meaningful. 

One reason for this sudden emphasis on planning 
is the consolidation of the financial-services industry. 
"Firms are diversifying and merging to offer a 'full 
service' array of financial products to clients— insur- 
ance, stock and bond trading, mutual funds, and 
direct participation programs," and now limited 
partnerships in real estate, according to the Stanger 
Register, which follows real-estate syndications. Bro- 
kerage houses, insurance companies, banks, and 
mutual-fund groups are offering the customer a set 
of savings and investment products intended to meet 
a broad range of financial needs. 

At the same time, there is a great demand from individuals for help in 
planning their financial future and in choosing the appropriate investment 

Before going out to find this assistance, however, sort through your cur- 
rent investments, spelling out your financial goals and reviewing your invest- 
ments profile: 

What kind of returns are you looking for? How much risk are you willing 
to assume? Do your current investments match your needs? What has 
been your previous investment experience? What is your tax situation? 
What is your investment time frame, and what are your priorities: Are you 
concerned about putting aside money for your child's education, or for your 
own retirement? 

While these are the kinds of questions a financial planner should ask, 
it is good to frame answers to these questions in advance. This will help 
you decide if a particular planner's style suits your goals and investment 

Choosing a financial planner who is right for you and your needs is 
similar to finding a good doctor or lawyer or accountant. A recommendation 
from a friend who is a satisfied client is a good point of departure. 

Illustration: Lloyd Carl Miller 







_l_he explosion in the 
number of investment 
products on the market 
may seem confusing. 

Before signing up with any planner, find 
out his or her educational background and 
investment experience; the number of years 
spent in this field; what past-performance 
track record is available, if any; and who the 
planner's other clients are. Also find out 
whether the planner offers a special kind of 
expertise and whether that is what you want. 
For example, given the current tax uncertain- 
ties, you will probably be better off with a 
planner who is looking for investments that 
will provide good returns, irrespective of tax 
consequences, than one who knows how to 
increase your tax write-offs. In other words, 
get an exact idea of what you are going to be 
getting in the way of financial planning, what 
you will be paying for it, and how you will be 
paying for it, whether in hidden or upfront 

An important consideration in choosing a 
planner is how they get compensated. Some 
planners will not charge a fee, but make 
money from the companies whose products 
they sell you. If a planner works for a specific 
financial-services firm, his advice may be lim- 
ited to products his firm offers. 

A growing number of independent plan- 
ners charge their clients fees but are free to 
recommend any investment option, since 
they are not getting paid on the basis of 
whose product they get you to buy. 

A cornucopia of investment options, in 
units of $2,000, $1,000, and even less, now 
exists. Many have been tailored for individual , 
retirement accounts (IRA's). They include all 
kinds of limited partnerships, such as real es- 
tate, oil and gas deals, tax-free unit invest- 
ment trusts, zero-coupon bonds, and mutual 
funds of every stripe. 

Moreover, a growing number of these new 
products are offered without an initial sales 
load or fee, which make them especially pop- 
ular with fee-based financial planners who 
are looking for ways to offset their own 

The explosion in the number of invest- 


ment products on the market may seem con- 
fusing. But such diversity gives the average 
person the ability to build the kind of portfolio 
that used to be unique to the wealthier inves- 
tor. That's true whether you do your own fi- 
nancial planning, or rely on someone else to 
help you in this area. 

Here is the outlook for investment mar- 
kets in the months ahead. 

What looks good 

iwo features of the current economy 
dominate investment markets as 
1985 begins. First, inflation remains 
surprisingly low, and it is likely that 
consumer prices won't rise much more than 
5 percent this year. Second, interest rates are 
still quite high. And "real" interest rates, rates 
adjusted for inflation, are staying at remark- 
ably lofty levels. 

In addition, the Treasury Department has 
thrown a screwball at investors with its plan to 
"simplify" the tax system. What concerns in- 
vestors is that simplification involves many 
complex changes of the rules of the game as 
it is presently played. While the plan is not 
given much chance of passage intact, it 
has nonetheless created a great deal of 

For investors looking to put their money to 
work, the confluence of low inflation, high in- 
terest rates, and a perplexing tax picture pro- 
duces both opportunities and uncertainties. 

It was only a few years ago that runaway 
inflation was the most important investment 
consideration. Investors sought ways to keep 
their assets rising faster than prices. Real es- 

tate, gold, and art objects became popular as 
inflation hedges. Bonds and other financial 
paper were scorned. Cash, for the most part, 
was parked in short-term investments like 
money funds. 

But as inflation continues to stay moder- 
ate, it is dawning on many investors that the 
next few years, far from returning us to the 
kind of economic conditions that character- 
ized the late 1970s and early 1980s, will be 
quite different and will require different in- 
vestment strategies. 

'The investment winners over the next 
four years will be those who can lend money," 
and "the losers will be the borrowers," says 
Jay Goldinger, the author of Early Warning 
Wire and an investment strategist with Can- 
tor, Fitzgerald & Co., a West Coast brokerage 

In the 1970s, Goldinger notes, "Borrow- 
ers took advantage of spiralling prices and 
low interest rates. They paid back their loans 
in cheaper dollars. Now with low inflation and 
high interest rates, borrowers find themselves 
paying on loans with more expensive dollars. 
The country's wealth is changing hands from 
those who borrow to those who lend and the 
lenders are reaping the profits." 

A similar view is held by Merrill Lynch's 
chief investment strategist, Stanley Salvigsen, 
who believes that the commodity in short 
supply in the 1980s is money, which is there- 
fore registering the strongest relative price 
gains in the economy. 

"Current high 'real' rates of interest are a 
reflection of the increased relative value of 
money in the world economy," says Salvigsen. 

What this means is that saving is being re- 
warded over current consumption, and inves- 
tors have greater incentive to lock money up 
for a longer period of time. 

And, indeed, all kinds of long-term bonds 
have made a comeback, from Treasuries to 
government bonds to zero coupons. So have 
other investment vehicles that promise high 
yields over an extended period of time, rang- 
ing from brokerage-firm unit investment 
trusts and Ginnie Maes to mutual funds that 
emphasize income over capital appreciation. 

Tax-free municipals are also extremely ap- 
pealing. For a number of reasons, yields have 
dropped less than on taxable instruments. 
And it is possible to obtain returns of nearly 
10 percent on municipals that are exempt 
not only from federal, but also from state and 
local taxes. Tax-free yields are almost equal to

lowest tax brackets to really benefit on an af- 
ter-tax basis. This is especially true in New 
York, where state and local taxes are very 

All of this presents problems for the stock 
market. It's hard for stocks, which are riskier 
and more uncertain, to compete with a sure 
thing like a guaranteed 10 percent return. 
What's the chance that a particular stock or 
mutual fund will go up by more than 10 per- 
cent in 1985? 

And for the next few months, many ana- 
lysts believe, the stock market will continue to 
be choppy and indecisive. 

A lot depends on the outlook for the econ- 
omy. As growth bounces back from the lull of 
the last few months, it is possible that the 
market will be buoyed by the improvement. 
However, that could also mean higher 
interest rates. 

Some of the same factors that are making 
interest-rate investments attractive also favor 
certain kinds of stocks, provided an investor 
is patient— and looking for values. 

As opposed to the rising tide that lifted all 
ships from August 1982 through the middle 
of 1983, selectivity will be important in the 
year ahead. Reasonably valued stocks of 
companies that have low or no debt, are 
structured to be lean and competitive, and 
can show solid earnings growth in 1985 will 
outperform the averages in the coming year. 

Mutual funds, while they also under- 
performed in 1984, managed to increase 
their assets by over 20 percent last year, and 
many new funds came into being. The funds 
are attracting many investors because they 
provide professional portfolio management 
and diversification for a small management 

The growing popularity of switch-fund 
services, which tell subscribers whether to be 
in equity mutual funds or to be parked tem- 
porarily in money funds, can be expected to 
continue in 1985. Some of these services are 


willing to do the actual switching for a nomi- 
nal charge, and a few not only move funds 
between stock funds and money funds 
(money-market mutual funds), but also 
switch in and out of a variety of funds, in- 
cluding bond funds and gold funds. 

The 1984 Tax Reform Act included one 
feature that is undoubtedly favorable for 
stock-market investors. The holding period to 
qualify for long-term capital-gains tax treat- 
ment was cut to six months from one year for 
assets acquired after June 22, 1984. Because 
of this, it is much easier for investors to make 
profits that are taxed at the maximum capital- 
gains rate of 20 percent. 

The Treasury Department's surprising ini- 
tial proposal to do away with favorable capi- 
tal-gains treatment, as part of its tax-overhaul 
scheme, has overshadowed this development. 

It is highly uncertain which, if any, of the 
proposed versions of the modified flat-tax will 
be accepted, and it could take several years 
to be enacted at all. 

In the meantime, many investors may be 
pleasantly surprised that they can obtain 
long-term capital gains six months earlier 
than previously. 

Not everybody is convinced that inflation 
has actually been licked. And some advisers 
make a case for including at least some infla- 
tion hedges in a total portfolio. Real estate 
won't perform like it did in the hyperinfla- 
tionary years, but quality property will con- 
tinue to be a good investment for individuals 
with staying power. The current tax code, 
moreover, makes real estate probably the 
most tax-advantaged investment available to 
the average individual, but this could change 
with an overhaul of the tax system. Mean- 
while, the current investor gets rapid depreci- 
ation, deductions for interest payments, and 
long-term capital-gains treatment. 

There is also a growing boomlet for all 
cash investments in real estate, whether 
through limited partnerships or through mu- 
tual funds. This conservative way to invest in 

property rejects leverage, reducing tax write- 
offs but providing the opportunity for grow- 
ing returns over the years. It is particularly 
appealing for IRA's and other tax-deferred 
investments on which current profits go 
untaxed and compound tax-free until with- 
drawals are made. 

Gold and other precious metals proved 
to be terrible investments in 1984. But, if 
there are any signs that inflation is accelerat- 
ing, gold at $300 an ounce or silver at $6 
an ounce may prove to be an attractive 

In 1985, investors should have a variety of 
attractive opportunities. But it is important to 
be selective. Emphasize quality, be reason- 
able in your expectations, and be alert to the 
unique features of the current economy.

moved to 1287 in January, just a notch below 
its all-time high. Then the Dow dropped 200 
points, before that explosive, but short-lived, 
August rally which again pushed stocks 
higher. By and large, however, 1984 was a 
frustrating year for stock-market investors. An 
exception was for yield-oriented investors in 
utility stocks, which had a great year as inter- 
est rates edged lower and inflation continued 
to abate. 

The overall disappointment was great be- 
cause there were widespread expectations 
that stocks would move higher in an election 
year in which the Republican candidate was 
highly favored. Despite President Reagan's 
landslide, this failed to occur. 

As 1985 begins, the outlook for stocks re-

tion plan, which put Wall Street into shock. 

Meanwhile, the big institutions, like pension 
funds, bank trust departments, and mutual 
funds, that are the major day-to-day players 
in the stock market, have cash reserves 
estimated at about 8 percent, not considered 
enough to fuel a major stock-market rally. 

Given all these factors, it has been hard to 
be sanguine about stocks and equity mutual 

However, the market has a way of surpris- 
ing the consensus, and a number of forecast- 
ers believe it is quite possible that the market 
will set new records sometime in 1985. 

If there are some more pleasant surprises 
for the economy— such as real progress by 
the president and in Congress in cutting the 
deficit— they could produce upward motion 
in the stock market. 

"The big investment move in the securi- 
ties markets will come in common stocks as 
the average price-earnings multiple rises," 
says Robert Stovall, investment director at 
Dean Witter Reynolds, Inc., provided stocks 
trade closer to historic multiples in the year 

He notes that the Dow Jones industrial av- 
erage, which celebrated its 100th birthday in 
1984, has averaged a multiple (the market 
price of a share divided by twelve-month 
earnings) of approximately 14 over its 100 
years. In the recent past, stocks have traded 
at a multiple of 17 when inflation was running 
at the present low level. However, the average 
p/e (multiple) on the Dow is currently under 10. 
With combined earnings for one share of 
each of the 30 Dow Jones industrial compan- 
ies that make up the average expected to to- 
tal $145 in 1985, up from $130 in 1984, an 
upward adjustment of the p/e on the Dow to 
exactly 10 would put the widely watched in- 
dex at 1450 this year ($145 times 10). 

"The market could surprise a lot of inves- 
tors and have a big jump early in the first half 
of the year," Stovall ventures. "And many indi- 
vidual investors who are waiting for a long- 
term trend to develop will end up watching it 
come and go if they are not already in the 
market because the adjustment could take 
place very quickly." 

More pessimistic observers feel that any 
upward move in the year ahead will be short- 
lived and will not carry the market beyond 
1400. However, a number of analysts believe 
that a highly selective approach to stocks 
could yield positive results this year, no mat- 








ter what happens to the averages. 

"We continue to place emphasis on con- 
sumer, financial, and utility stocks," says Phil- 
adelphia's Glenmede Trust Company, which 
looks for stocks that will benefit from further 
declines in interest rates and a slow-growth 

"If an effort is made to reduce the federal 
deficit, there is a decent possibility that we 
may experience several years of moderate 
growth with low inflation— and a very reward- 
ing period for equity investors as a result," 
says Mark Tavel, executive vice-president for 
Value Line, Inc. 

"With the economic and market outlooks 
uncertain, and confidence in the immediate 
future on the wane, it is not surprising that 
few investors are willing to look to the long 
term," says Robert Nurock, who writes The 
Astute Investor, a newsletter. "Yet, it is just 
these conditions, as well as the opportunity 
they present, that lead us to believe a long- 
term viewpoint is warranted now," he adds. 

In 1984, blue-chip stocks clearly outper- 
formed smaller-capitalization stocks— those 
generally traded on the American Stock Ex- 
change and the over-the-counter markets— 
which are frequently the province of the 
individual investor. 

In fact, many excellent secondary-market 
issues have, along with less stellar issues, 
suffered from severe and indiscriminate price 
corrections, making them attractive once 
more to some stock-market observers. The 
technology stocks are a case in point. 

"In the technology stocks it is a lot like 
1974," according to Jim McCamant and Meg 
Kellogg, who write the Medical Technology 
Stock Letter. "We are seeing the same out- 
standing values with no one seeming to care," 
they add, noting that individual issues are 
now selling "substantially below their real 

"Historically, the trend toward larger is- 
sues has emerged during uncertain eco- 
nomic times because bigger companies are 
thought of as having the financial where- 
withal to withstand business downturns," 
says Nurock. 

The emphasis on the big-capitalization 
blue-chip stocks is "beginning to reach an ex- 
treme," Nurock believes. "Viewed in terms of 
'excessive speculation,' larger stocks may 
now be reaching an extreme in institutional 
ownership equivalent to the public's enthusi- 
asm for smaller issues as the broad market

peaked," he says. 

"Accordingly, we think that now is the 
time to accumulate secondary issues with a 
view toward establishing substantial gains as 
the market turns more clearly upward," 
Nurock recommends. Investors, he adds,

" * financial characteristics, such as clean 
balance sheets, improving profit margins, 
and returns on investment are present;

dicate that they are in an advanced state of

Mutual funds

ance was spotty in 1984, the 
funds continued to appeal to 
a wide range of investors. 
"We had an interesting split in mutual- 
fund performance in 1984," observes 
Sheldon Jacobs, editor of The Handbook for 
No-Load Fund Investors. "The capital appre- 
ciation, aggressive growth funds, and tech- 
nology funds showed losses, but the more 
conservative funds had a good year, and an 
investor who made good selections could 
have done quite well," he says. 

Some conservative stock funds, bond and 
other fixed-income funds, and funds that in- 
vested in utilities were among the best per- 
formers during 1984, particularly during the 
second half when they benefitted from the

drop in interest rates and the stock market's 
emphasis on blue-chip stocks. The funds that 
performed the most poorly last year were 
mostly ones that invested in gold. 

Last year was spectacular in terms of 
growth for mutual funds. According to the In- 
vestment Company Institute, the trade group 
for the mutual-fund industry, assets under 
management in equity, bond, and other in- 
come funds stood at $132.7 billion at year 
end, up from $113.6 billion for year end 
1983, for a gain of more than 14 percent in 
one year. That doesn't include money funds, 
which also had a resurgence last year, or 
short-term tax-exempt funds. 

Even more interesting, the number of 
long-term funds tracked by the ICI rose to 
809 from 637, twelve months earlier, an in- 
crease of 27 percent. What this means is one 
in five long-term mutual funds started up in 
just the last year. 

While there were a number of new equity 
funds, many of the start-ups were for special- 
ized income funds that invest exclusively in 
Ginnie Maes, government securities, or ad- 
justed-rate preferred stocks. Many funds 
groups added these types of offerings to their 
array of products, accounting for much of the 

Investors, while shying away from direct 
investment in stocks, seem to like the mu- 
tual-fund concept, and for good reasons. At a 
time when the stock market has become very 
volatile, moving rapidly up or down in a mat- 
ter of days, the individual investor's best bet 
for participating in a rally or getting out when 
prices plummet is through a mutual fund. 
The varieties of mutual funds, tailored to al- 
most every investment objective, continues to 
increase. And the ability to switch from one 
kind of fund to another within a single fund 
"family" gives the individual the ability to 
manage an overall investment portfolio with- 
out having to decide exactly what stocks and 
bonds to buy or sell. 

As the accompanying table shows, the 
top ten performing mutual funds in 1984 
were mainly funds that invested in utilities or 
fixed-income investments. Number one was 
the Prudential-Bache Utilities Fund, up 
38.62 percent. A sizable portion of this gain, 
however, was due to the liquidation of a tax re- 
serve. Two funds that invest in regular common 
stocks did make the list, with the Windsor 
Fund and the Sequoia Fund coming in ninth 
and tenth, both up around 19 percent.

.eople used to go to 
banks for toasters, 
now they go for yields. 
They have become 
interest-rate junkies." 


Tn consumer finance, one of the most 
notable developments in recent 
years has been the avid inclination of 
savers to shop around for the highest 
available yield. 

"People used to go to banks for toasters, 
now they go for yields," says William LeFevre, 
research chief at Purcell, Graham & Co., Inc. 
"Many Americans-particularly senior citizens- 
have become interest-rate junkies." 

This yield-sensitivity— or oversensitivity— 
has kept individuals hopping from money 
funds to bank savings certificates to unit 
trusts to Treasury bills, in order to improve 
their interest return by as little as a fraction of 
a percentage point. Most of this switching 
has been between short-term vehicles. 

Missing from most investors' calculations, 
however, has been the means to decide 
when it is time to move from short-term in- 
vestments to longer-term fixed-income instru- 
ments, like notes or bonds, as interest rates 
come down. 

But in 1984, the really astute investors 
went not just for yield, but for total return— 
the sum of annual interest income plus capi- 
tal appreciation. 

They did this by switching from short-term 
vehicles to instruments with longer-maturi- 
ties, so that when interest rates came down 
sharply during the second half of the year, 
these investors had locked onto rates of up to 
14 percent for a number of years. They also 

benefitted when the face value of their notes, 
bonds, Ginnie Maes, or fixed-income mutual 
funds appreciated substantially, because 
when interest rates come down, the price of a 
previously issued bond, for example, usually 
goes up. 

During 1984, interest rates traced a vola- 
tile path, rising in the first part of the year and 
declining sharply in the second half. What 
happened first was a dramatic improvement 
in inflationary expectations, as the Consumer 
Price Index continued to run at a 4 percent 
annual rate, and then a loosening of the Fed- 
eral Reserve Board's interest-rate policies late 
in the year, when it looked like the economy 
might be heading into another recession. 

The rates on long-term bonds peaked 
first, with the Treasury's 30-year bond hitting 
14 percent briefly in May, before declining to 
around 11.5 percent as the year ended. How- 
ever, short-term interest rates continued to 
climb into the summer, causing many individ- 
uals to keep their money in short-term invest- 
ments, where rates were still running at over 
10 percent. 

Anyone who, with luck or foresight, hit 
long-term rates at their peak continues to re- 
ceive astonishing real returns— after sub- 
tracting for the 4 percent inflation rate— of as 
much as 10 percent, and has seen the port- 
folio value of his or her investment rise by 20 
percent or more. 

The biggest surprise was zero-coupon 
bonds. Because these bonds— which don't 
pay annual interest but get paid off at a multi- 
ple of their purchase price when they ma- 
ture—compound interest on interest, they 
tend to be more volatile than ordinary bonds. 
When interest rates rise, they drop steeply. 
But they also climb dramatically when inter- 
est rates decline. Last year some zeros rose 
in price by almost 80 percent. Though most 

investors purchased zeros to lock away in 
IRA's or other tax-sheltered plans, some took 
advantage of the capital appreciation. 

Meanwhile, those individuals who stayed 
short and must roll over their interest-rate in- 
vestments in the coming weeks are in for a 
shock. Let's say someone purchased a six- 
month bank savings certificate last July that 
returned 13 percent after compounding. To- 
day, banks are offering only 9 percent on that 
same investment, a drop of 4 percentage 
points in less than half a year's time. Money 
funds and bank money-market accounts are 
also yielding about 9 percent, and three- 
month Treasury bills dipped under 8 percent 
in December, after hitting 12 percent in August. 

The question now facing investors is 
whether interest rates will continue to drop, or 
whether the chance to go for total return has 
passed them by. 

A number of forecasters are predicting 
that interest rates will start moving higher 
again this spring as the economy picks up 
more steam. According to Lawrence Kudlow, 
a Washington, DC, economic consultant, in- 
flation has probably bottomed and "90 per- 
cent of the interest rate decline has already 
occurred." An increase in bond yields will be 
"the next major move in rates," says Kudlow. 

David Jones, chief economist with Aubrey 
G. Lanston & Company, a government secu- 
rities dealer, also expects interest rates to rise 
in coming months, but feels that another sub- 
stantial drop may be in store for the second 
half of 1985. He expects the yield on the gov- 
ernment's 30-year bond, for example, to 
move back up to 12.5 percent in coming 
months, but says that it could end this year 
dipping to 10.5 percent. Jones recommends 
that investors, instead of venturing into the 
longest maturities, stick to 2- to 7-year notes 
and other intermediate term instruments. 

Other advisers feel that the play in bonds 
is far from over, and some even go so far as to 
suggest that this may be the last chance in- 
vestors have to lock in double-digit yields for 
some time to come. "The debt markets will 
continue to be the investment leader," says 
Jay Goldinger, an investment counselor with 
Cantor, Fitzgerald & Co. "Interest rates still 
have a way to come down, and we may even 
be in for a mini-recession this year," he adds. 

"It may be that deficits will cause inflation, 
but they haven't yet," comments Lance Brof- 
man, chief economist for Donald Sheldon &

real interest rates and thus cause excess re- 
turns to bondholders," he notes, adding that 
"investors should take advantage of this huge 
discrepancy between current interest rates 
and inflation levels." 

For those on the lookout, there are still 
double-digit yields available on intermediate 
notes and long-term bonds, Ginnie Maes, 
and some other instruments. 

Goldinger feels there are also some over- 
looked opportunities in the fixed-income 
area. He likes closed-end bond funds, bond 
funds that don't accept new money and trade 
like stocks on the New York Stock Exchange. 
Some of these are yielding from 11.75 to 12 
percent and hold the potential for good price 
gains as well. 

For more intrepid investors, Goldinger 
suggests buying short-maturity bonds on 
margin. Some three-year government- 
agency notes are yielding 10.75 percent. 
Meanwhile, brokers are charging customers 
only about 8.75 percent for margin debt. In 
effect, the investor is receiving a positive 
spread of over 1 percent for this transaction 
and is also speculating on price gains that 
would result if rates come down further. Mar- 
gin on these notes is only 3 percent of their 
value, compared with 50 percent on stocks— 
so an investor with $3,000 can purchase 
$10,000 in notes. 

However, right now, the best investment 
area for both yield and total return may be 
tax-free municipals, which we'll look at next. 


m / ■ / hile rates on taxable bonds 
m / M / have dropped substantially, 
W W yields on tax-free municipal 
w bonds are just starting to de- 
cline, and it is still possible to obtain top-rated 
tax-free investments returning around 9.5 

For many investors this may be the best 
deal available. Whereas only individuals in 


very high tax brackets used to be drawn to 
municipals, it is possible these days for indi- 
viduals in the 26 percent tax bracket to bene- 
fit from a long-term tax-free investment. 
Short-term tax-exempt money funds, which 
are yielding only about 5.75 percent cur- 
rently, are a good deal only for taxpayers in 
the very highest brackets. 

But for someone in the 26 percent 
bracket, a 9.5 percent tax-free return is equal 
to a 12.66 percent taxable return. In the 40 
percent bracket, that 9.5 percent is the 
equivalent of a taxable yield of 15.83 percent. 
And the individual in the top 50 percent fed- 
eral tax bracket would have to earn a whop- 
ping 19 percent on a taxable instrument to 
equal a 9.5 percent tax-free yield. 

(Here is how to calculate your own after- 
tax equivalent return. Determine your tax 
bracket and deduct the number from 100. 
Then divide the result into the tax-exempt 
rate. Let's assume that someone in the 40 
percent bracket is being offered a 9.5 per- 
cent tax-free return. Subtract 40 from 100 to 
get 60, and divide 60 into 9.5 to obtain an af- 
ter-tax equivalent of 15.8 percent.) 

Furthermore, the New York State resident 
who invests in municipal bonds issued by the 
state or units within the state escapes city 
and state, as well as federal, taxes for the in- 
terest income. This triple tax exemption 
makes the after-tax equivalent return even 
more substantial for top-bracket investors. 

Why are municipal-bond yields so lofty? 
One current explanation— again related to 
the Treasury Department's tax-reform plan- 
says that the tax-free market is worried that 
the price of previously issued municipal 
bonds will suffer if the maximum tax rate 
drops to 35 percent. 

However, many experts say this concern 
accounts for only a small interest-rate pre- 
mium. They suggest, instead, that unique 
supply and demand factors in the market for 
tax-exempt bonds are the main reason for the 
high tax-free returns. 

"It is not a response to tax reform," asserts 
James Lebenthal, chairman of Lebenthal & 
Co., Inc., the municipal-bond firm. "It is the 
result of a glut of new issues and the fact that 
with banks and insurance companies no 
longer the mainstay buyers in the tax-free 
market, municipal bonds are priced to knock 
individual buyers off their feet." 

In a further effort to attract individual buy- 
ers, an increasing number of municipal is- 
sues are coming to market backed by private 

insurance, which gives them a AAA rating. In- 
vestors must sacrifice about three-eighths of 
a percentage point in for an insured tax-free 
instrument, but this feature seems to be very 
popular because it reduces concern about 

Another innovation gaining popularity in 
the tax-exempt market is the zero-coupon 
municipal bond. It works just like other zero- 
coupon bonds. The bond is purchased for a 
fraction of its redemption price. No annual in- 
terest is paid. However, the Internal Revenue 
Service requires owners of corporate and 
Treasury-related zero-coupon bonds to pay 
yearly taxes on the interest at which the 
bonds are compounding. A zero-coupon 
municipal avoids this tax treatment. 

The coming months should provide a res- 
pite from the record level of new tax-exempt 
issues that were offered to investors in recent 
months. A flood of new financings came to 
market during the last months of 1984 in or- 
der to beat a January 1, 1985 deadline that 
eliminates certain tax-exempt offerings. With 
that surge out of the way, the widespread ex- 
pectation is that municipal rates will be com- 
ing down in the next few months. 

But investors who act now can lock in a 
higher yield and may find that bonds they 
buy now will also appreciate in price if the de- 
cline in tax-free rates turns out to be as sub- 
stantial as the drop that has taken place in 
taxable yields.

mated that over 40-million individuals now 
have IRA's. 

"More and more of our customers are tak- 
ing their IRA's seriously as investments," says 
Merrill Lynch's Donald Underwood. "Some of 
these accounts are approaching $10,000 
and while individuals still like that instant 
tax deduction, they also are watching to 
see how well their investments are doing, 
and they are looking at their IRA's as mini- 

The available investment choices for IRA's 
now include managed commodity funds, 
real-estate syndications that emphasize in- 
come and appreciation, and other special- 
ized investments that come in tailored 
$1,000 and $2,000 units. But most investors 
seem to be sticking to more conventional 
choices like stocks, equity mutual funds, an- 
nuities, and high-return savings instruments. 
"Most of our customers are looking for yield 
and safety," says Underwood. 

There is one significant change this year 
that applies to IRA contributions. They must 
be made by April 15 and can no longer be 
delayed if a tax return gets filed late because 
of an official extension. 

The earlier deadline for setting up Keogh 
accounts remains the same. A Keogh must 
be opened by the end of a business's fiscal 
year, usually December 31 ; but the deadline 
for making contributions may be postponed 
by filing for an extension beyond the April 15 
tax-filing date. 

If there is one major complaint about IRA's, 
it is that the maximum annual individual con- 
tribution of $2,000 ($2,500 for a couple 
where only one person works) has not been 
raised since eligibility was broadened. By 
contrast, persons with Keogh plans— retire- 
ment funds for self-employed individuals and 
their employees— can now sock away up to 
$30,000 a year or 25 percent of eligible in- 
come. This basically doubles the previous 
Keogh maximum of $15,000 or 30 percent of 
self-employed income. 

Additionally, many workers whose compan- 
ies have set up 401(k) plans are discovering 
that they are an attractive way to set aside ad- 
ditional dollars towards retirement. 

A 401(k) plan (the name comes from an 
amendment to the tax code) must be estab- 
lished by a company for its employees— it 
can't be started by an individual. Once set 
up, it lets an individual set aside pre-tax dol- 
lars, just like an IRA. However, the maximum 







annual amount can be as high as $30,000 or 
up to 25 percent of one's salary, whichever is 
less. Depending on who is offering the plan, 
contributions can be invested in a variety of 
accounts from money-market funds to a 
choice of equity mutual funds. 

In addition, many employers match all or 
part of an employee's contributions. As in an 
IRA or Keogh, taxes on investment profits are 
deferred until withdrawals take place. How- 
ever, lump-sum withdrawals from a 401(k) 
are eligible for ten-year forward averaging for 
tax purposes, a more favorable treatment 
than for IRA's. 

It is also easier to take money out of a 
401(k) for reasons of disability or hardship 
without paying a penalty for premature with- 
drawals. And it is possible to take out loans 
against one's account. 

Many large companies have already estab- 
lished 401(k) plans, and these programs are 
spreading rapidly to midsize and smaller 
companies. As the word about how they work 
gets around, many workers are asking their 
employers to set up these plans. 

The Treasury, in its tax-reform blueprint, ad- 
vocates elimination of 401(k) plans. At the 
same time, it proposes raising IRA contribu- 
tion limits to $2,500 per person and $5,000 
for a married couple, whether or not the 
spouse is employed. The projected savings 
from the termination of 401(k)'s would be 
more than offset by doubling the IRA maxi- 
mum. lt will be interesting to see if Congress 
goes along with any changes that will widen 
the current deficit. 


Annuities provide another way to 
put aside money for retirement, 
and they can also be useful 
L_as a tax-planning tool. 
The appeal of an annuity, an insurance- 
company product, is that it allows the buyer 
to defer taxes on investment gains until with- 
drawals take place. However, unlike IRA's, 
Keoghs, or 401(k) plans, the money that goes

into an annuity is after-tax income, not pre-tax 

Annuities guarantee monthly income, once 
withdrawals start, some for as long as the 
holder lives. And there are death benefits for 
beneficiaries, should the purchaser die be- 
fore the annuity is tapped. 

The industry still has a black eye from the 
collapse of Baldwin-United Corporation 
which left purchasers of billions of dollars 
of "single-premium deferred annuities" or 
SPDA's in limbo for months. Insurance reg- 
ulators and the insurance and brokerage 
industry are still working to pick up the 

Baldwin-United got into trouble when it 
started using assets from its SPDA's to fi- 
nance other corporate ventures. Because of 
the stir this created, companies selling an- 


nuities these days emphasize products that 
keep annuity assets segregated in a separate 
account, assuring customers that these prob- 
lems won't be encountered again. 

Annuities come in two main formats. A 
fixed annuity guarantees a fixed rate of return 
and is similar to a tax-deferred savings ac- 
count. The variable annuity, which has be- 
come increasingly popular, gives the investor 
a variety of investment options ranging from 
real estate to equity mutual funds. The varia- 
ble annuity offers opportunities for greater re- 
turns, but it is also possible to lose money. 

Although not yet approved for sale in New 
York, the latest wrinkle is the variable annuity 
with a choice of investment options and the 
privilege of switching between them. Inte- 
grated Resources, Inc., recently introduced 
what it calls the Integrated Capital Accumula- 

tion Plan or icap. The investor is given four 
choices— a short-term money-market portfo- 
lio, a corporate-bond portfolio, a growth-stock 
portfolio, and a government-securities portfo- 
lio—and can make one free switch each 30 
days, by telephone. 

The 1984 Tax Reform Act eliminated the 
double taxation of capital gains on assets in a 
variable annuity. All income and capital gains 
now go directly to the investor. 

In a move to make the icap annuity more 
appealing to investors, the only initial sales 
load is a $30 policy fee and there is no back- 
end charge after the fifth year. But there is a 
0.5 to 0.75 (depending on the investment 
choice) percent annual management fee and 
a 1.4 percent annual "mortality fee" that 
guarantees income for the rest of investor's 
life, as well as a death benefit. 

Potential investors in annuities should also 
know that there are usually penalties for mak- 
ing withdrawals within the first five years of 
opening a plan. Furthermore, when with- 
drawals take place taxes are due on the in- 
come component. The initial investment has 
already been taxed and does not get taxed 

Annuities aren't only used as retirement ve- 
hicles. Because income earned in an annuity 
is tax-deferred, this feature is used for tax 
planning by some individuals, pushing in- 
come into a future year when they expect to 
be in a lower tax bracket. The tax-free com- 
pounding feature can itself be a good deal. 
And some companies offer fixed annuities for 
periods of as little as one year. 

Precious metals 

Precious metals have been ex- 
ceedingly poor investments 
over the last twelve months, 
driving the gold bugs buggy. 
Gold bullion, which traded as high as $406 
an ounce early in 1984, has recently dipped 
below $300. And some forecasters think that 
it could drop as low as $250 in the months

metals have been the strong dollar, high inter- 
est rates, and a low U.S. inflation rate. "Gold 
trades like a currency and it has been weak, 
like other currencies, against the dollar," says 
Eugene Sherman, chief economist for Inter- 
national Gold Corporation Limited (Intergold), 
the marketing organization for the South 
African gold-mining industry. "Also working 
against gold is the psychological depressant 
of declining oil prices," he adds. 

Despite the negative short-term outlook, 
some advisers make a case for purchasing 
gold as a portfolio hedge. A sudden drop in 
the dollar, they argue, would almost certainly 
send gold prices higher. In addition, a weak- 
ening U.S. currency would push up the price 
of imports contributing to the domestic infla- 
tion rate, as imports become more expensive, 
and that would also add impetus to an in- 
crease in the price of bullion. 

The dollar has confounded repeated pre- 
dictions that it will weaken, but a turning 
point some time in 1985 is likely. 

Andre Sharon, who follows gold for Drexel 
Burnham Lambert, Inc., admits he has been 
wrong on the price of gold, because he has 
been wrong on the dollar. "It can, must and 
will come down," he insists. "The question re- 
mains one of timing, of how long it can con- 
tinue to shrug off reality." 

Sharon is telling the firm's clients to hold 
about 7.5 percent of their assets in gold-re- 
lated investments, split evenly between the 
actual metal and gold-mining stocks. He also 
believes investors should have part of their 
equity portfolio in foreign stocks, which would 
also benefit from a decline in the strength of 
the dollar. 

Sherman says individuals have been show- 
ing more interest in buying gold as it has 
dropped to the $300 level. In his view, the 
best strategy for an investor interested in bul- 
lion is dollar-cost-averaging— periodically 
buying a coin instead of trying to enter the 
market at what the buyer thinks is the exact 
low point in price for bullion. 

In addition to the popular South African 
Krugerrand, gold coins on the market include 
the Mexican peso, the Austrian corona, the 
Chinese panda, and the Canadian maple 
leaf, which has a purity rating of .9999, the 
highest possible. 

Besides coins and gold shares, there are 
also a number of mutual funds that invest in 
gold and provide another way for individuals 
to hedge their investment bets with a position 
in bullion. 


Annuity: An insurance company product 
that typically guarantees periodic income. Of- 
ten used for retirement. The investor contrib- 
utes after-tax dollars, and taxes on gains are 
deferred until withdrawal. 
Blue-Chip Stock: Stock in well-established, 
highly capitalized companies enjoying a high 
degree of public confidence. Considered a 
quality, if often conservative, investment. 
Bank Money-Market Account: A bank 
minimum-balance account paying variable 
interest rates pegged to the current market.

". . .The form of The Breakfast Club is cheesy psychodrama, but its 
director and high-powered performers give it excitement. . / 


The Breakfast Club, the new film 
written and directed by John Hughes 
(Sixteen Candles), is about five high- 
school kids who spend a long Saturday — 
from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. — in the library serv- 
ing detention. It's a very large library, 
with a vaulted roof, balconies, and inter- 
nal stairways, but it's effectively a pris- 
on — the kids leave it only once, and then 
briefly. The camera barely leaves the 
room as well. Like the kids, we're stuck 
in that library. At the beginning of the 
day, the five are virtual strangers, but by 
the end, they will have spent so much 
time attacking, defending, confessing, 
breaking down and breaking through 
that they will know all one another's se- 
crets. New friendships will be formed, 
class barriers breached, old suspicions 
and hostilities swept away. 

In other words, The Breakfast Club re- 
creates the physical limitations, and the 
pressure-cooker atmosphere, of a sol- 
emnly therapeutic play. It's all about 
Identity and False Facades and Relation- 
ships, and as the characters undress their 
souls, the camera moves in for the kill. 
Sooner or later, everyone gets to play the 
Truth Game. What other game can you 
play when there's nowhere to go? Theat- 
rical psychodrama has been tried before 
in movies — in Hitchcock's Lifeboat, for 
instance, based on a Steinbeck story — 
but I don't think it's the sort of thing that 
should be encouraged. 

The form of The Breakfast Club is de- 
plorable, yet much of the writing and act- 
ing is good, and the movie has been 
sharply edited by Dede Allen. As Sixteen 
Candles demonstrated, John Hughes, the 
Chicago-based screenwriter turned di- 
rector, understands adolescents as well 
as anyone who has ever made movies 
about them, and he has a fluent way with 
young actors. In this picture, his dramat- 
ic ideas may be cheesy, but Hughes still 
manages to create some excitement and 
laughs. The Breakfast Club is far from 

"My God, are we gonna be like our 
parents?" someone wails, and the doleful 
answer comes back, "When you grow up, 
your heart dies." The Breakfast Club is 
about youth as a special state of ag- 
grieved sensitivity. It explores something 
common to adolescents everywhere — the 
certainty that no one, absolutely no one, 
could possibly understand how you 

Classmates: Nelson, Estevez, Sheedy, Ringwald, and Hall. 

feel. Aggressive and defensive at the 
same time, teenagers turn themselves 
into eccentrics — characters — as a way of 
warding off judgment; adolescent life, by 
its nature, has theatrical elements, which 
is no doubt the reason Hughes was 
tempted into structuring his material this 
way. In the funny opening scenes, the 
five kids, with nothing to say to one an- 
other, sit at desks in the library unveiling 
their specialties — their creepo habits, 
their petty outrages and self-mutilations. 
One girl tries cutting off the circulation 
in her finger with a piece of string; a boy 
sets his shoes on fire. Hughes has cap- 
tured kids' happy intimacy with the 
sacred emotion of physical disgust. 

The performers are all high-powered. 
Emilio Estevez, from The Outsiders and 
Repo Man, is the self-punishing jock 
Andy, a decent boy whose father has got 
him wound so tight around the fantasy of 
being a winner that he can barely 
breathe. Estevez, who should be moving 
into leading roles very soon, has got the 
jock moves down cold — his Andy seems 
to react to everything with his shoulders, 
and he uses his physical strength as if it 
were a moral policeman, put on earth to 
keep everyone else in line. Estevez is a 
touching actor — he can make this boy's 

macho intensity seem corny and noble at 
the same time. 

Andy stands at the top of the school's 
social hierarchy, and so does Claire Stan- 
dish, a popular princess who brings a box 
lunch of sushi to detention day. Molly 
Ringwald plays Claire, and it's a relief to 
see her looking like herself again and 
not — as Vanity Fair rigged her in its Jan- 
uary fashion layout — like an elderly Palm 
Beach matron. (Was it some form of mor- 
tuary prankishness or sheer editorial 
misjudgment that led the magazine to 
dress Ringwald, a snub-nosed come- 
dienne with bee-stung lips, in floor- 
length silk-charmeuse gowns, ringlets, 
veils, and enough flowers to bury a Mafia 
chieftain? Ringwald looked like Mar- 
garet Dumont trying out for a part in 
Pretty Baby.) 

Anthony Michael Hall, who was so 
funny as the fast-talking mover in Sixteen 
Candles, gives another good perform- 
ance, this time as a blandly respectful 
champion grade-getter, envied and de- 
spised by the other students, and begin- 
ning to despise himself. Hall has pale 
skin, pale-blue eyes, and almost milky 
blond hair; he's bodiless, almost translu- 
cent in this movie — a spirit of pure intel- 
ligence — until he pulls off a bravura

emotional scene at the end that had me 
wiping tears from the corners of my eyes. 
Ally Sheedy, as an abstracted, unhappy 
girl, is very moving, too. Swathed in black 
shawls like a fifties Village bohemian, 
Sheedy crouches low over her desk, dark 
hair falling down, and mutters odd things 
to herself. Sheedy plays an oddball loner 
posing as a nut case. As she reveals to the 
others that she's a nymphomaniac, she 
has a wicked, dirty grin — excited by the 
unaccustomed audience as much as by 
the lie she's telling. 

The only bad performance in the 
group is Judd Nelson's, as Bender, the 
working-class punk, and that hurts the 
movie, since Bender is the catalyst — the 
needier, endemic to this kind of drama- 
turgy, who gets things going by taunting 
the others with their weaknesses and eva- 
sions. Bender is malevolent and insinuat- 
ing; he puts his hands on a girl's breast 
and laughs at her for being a virgin. He's 
so contemptuous that he won't ever talk 
straight to the others — in his view, sar- 
casm and put-ons are all they deserve. 
Nelson, who has broad, flaring nostrils 
and longish straight hair that he flings 
back from his face, rams his way through 
the part — he's commanding, but he's 
perhaps too excited with the possibilities 
of controlling the whole show, and he 
goes too far with the jeering sarcasm. His 
insults are so venomous they are 
unforgivable: When we find out that he's 
a sensitive kid who's been abused at 
home, we don't want to warm up to him. 

Hughes takes the kids through the rev- 
elations of who they really are and what 
they really feel about one another, and 
some of that is really interesting and 
some of it really isn't. At least he has the 
good sense to let them freak out every 
once in a while — we need the release, 
too. Emilio Estevez has a great bit in 
which he throws off his shirt and goes on 
a jock rampage, slamming walls and 
jumping all over the place, and at one 
happy moment someone turns on some 
music and the picture breaks into a 
dance musical. It's bracing to hear that 
even though kids view adults as the com- 
mon enemy, their own school society is as 
class-ridden, as rife with petty snobberies 
and distinctions of status, as the most 
hidebound arenas of the evil adult 
world. That's a major perception, and 
possibly the subject for an interesting 
movie. I wish Hughes had found a less 
pretentious way of showing it. 

if The Breakfast Club has the strained 
intensity of a mediocre play, Heaven 
Help Us, another movie about kids — this 
time boys at a parochial school — is as 
casually ingratiating as a TV sitcom. The 
picture is timid, and all but worthless, 
but moviegoers who have always longed 
to see Donald Sutherland as a monk — 
and I know that you guys are out there — 
will be in ecstasy. n

Music/Peter G. Davis 


Kittiwah Island or Disneyland?: The Met Porgy and Bess is a cute cartoon. 

". . .Conservative types may approve of this lackluster Porgy, which 
buries real passions under mounds of details and cliches. . ." 


gers, and fina'ly collapses under the bur- 
den of its own respectability, Gershwin's 
Porgy and Bess has just lumbered into 
the Metropolitan Opera repertory. If 
nothing else, the Met's official imprima- 
tur, which arrives 50 years after the work 
first opened on Broadway, seems to have 
settled some disturbing questions about 
the piece — at least for those easily satis- 
fied people who used to be troubled by 
Porgy's suspicious musical parentage and 
racial issues. The Met's cozy production 
seems to tell us that a work of such musi- 
cal richness and vitality can be accepted 
as a bona fide opera despite its popular 
music-theater origins and many clumsy 
patches. We are also told to relax and ac- 
cept the warm, human characters as 
quaint period creations and forget about 
DuBose Heyward's artificial, sentimen- 
tal, fairy-tale depiction of black life. Now 
it is apparently safe to dismiss all doubts 
about Porgy and Bess, particularly the 
perceptive sort of observation that Virgil 
Thomson made a couple of months after 
the first performance .in 1935: "With a li- 
bretto that should never have been ac- 
cepted on a subject that should never 
have been chosen, a man who should 
never have attempted it has written a 
work that has considerable power." 

Some of us would still like to ponder 
that ingenious Porgy paradox propound- 
ed by Thomson, but the Met will have 
none of it. Walt Disney could not have 
dreamed up a more cute or inoffensive 
cartoon-drawn vision of Porgy and Bess, 
complete with a spick-and-span Catfish 
Row tenement house and Hollywood 
back-lot Kittiwah Island. The Met cer- 
tainly must have known what it wanted 
and what it would get by inviting back 
the familiar team of Nathaniel Merrill 
and Robert O'Hearn to stage and design 
the opera. One of Rudolf Bing's favorite 
directors two decades ago, Merrill could 
always be counted on for safe, depend- 
able, faceless work that invariably 
pleased critics who regarded any kind of 
relevant, imaginative, or thought-provok- 
ing production concept as an insidious 
perversion of the composer's intentions. 
No doubt such conservative types will 
approve of this lackluster Porgy, which so 
successfully buries the real passions of 
the piece under mounds of pointless, 
ponderous details and embarrassing vis- 

ual cliches, most of them only reminding 
us of how egregiously blacks were carica- 
tured in the 1930s. 

Like most Merrill productions, this 
one leaves the singers pretty much free to 
do as they wish, and fortunately the Met's 
Porgy does have several wonderful per- 
formers onstage. Gregg Baker as Crown 
is particularly outstanding: a bass-bari- 
tone of superior quality with superb dic- 
tion and an animal grace that perfectly 
suits the athletic activities of this danger- 
ous villain. Myra Merritt's sweet soprano 
makes a lovely moment of Clara's "Sum- 
mertime," while Florence Quivar is a 
dignified and tragic Serena, even if the 
music lies a bit too high for her formida- 
ble mezzo-soprano. Perhaps the chorus 
turns in the best performance of all, a 
flexible, responsive group that makes a 
consistently gorgeous sound, no matter 
what the mood of Catfish Row's volatile 

Simon Estes performed Porgy on 
opening night with a leg injury , and that 
possibly accounted for the rather blank 
impression he made in the role — or it 
could be that here is one talented singer 
who might just come to life with some 
directorial assistance. Despite his bland 
presence, Estes admirably served the mu- 
sic with a deluxe voice nat few other 
Porgys could ever match; ho may well be 
able to suggest the role's pathos and 

quiet strength once he is able to get back 
on his knees. As for Grace Bumbry's gro- 
tesque Bess, shabbily sung and ludicrous- 
ly acted, the less said the better. 

It speaks well for the Met that most of 
the leading roles for Porgy could be filled 
from the ranks and with such vocal dis- 
tinction — quite some distance has been 
traveled since Marian Anderson's debut 
with the company 30 years ago. For this. 
James Levine must take much of the 
credit, as well as for conducting the un- 
abridged score with such musicianly care 
(in future performances, he might think 
about pitching the orchestra at a slightly 
lower volume). If only the Met had faced 
the problematical dramatic challenges of 
Porgy as forthrightly and imaginatively 
instead of saddling us with this patently 
dishonest white elephant. 


makers turned out for the New York 
Philharmonic's recent concert perform- 
ance of Act I from Die Walktire, and ex- 
pectations ran high. Such glamorous 
events do not occur all that often during 
a typical Philharmonic season nowadays, 
and everyone, in the audience as well as 
onstage, seemed determined to make the 
most of this one. The high-powered so- 
loists included Eva Marton, Peter Hof- 
mann, and Martti Talvela, while Zubin 
Mehta conducted with energetic enthusi-

asm, obviously intent on making a major 
Wagnerian statement — understandably 
so, since CBS engineers were also on 
hand to record the proceedings for com- 
mercial release. Excitement hung in the 
air, and the scene was set for great things. 
Unfortunately, a triumph never quite 

One problem might simply have been 
Act I of Die Walkure, always a risky busi- 
ness when wrenched out of context and 
played in concert. Judging from their re- 
cordings, Arturo Toscanini and Bruno 
Walter were able to pull it off — both con- 
ductors also had the considerable advan- 
tage of Lauritz Melchior in his prime as 
Siegmund — but I'm afraid the Philhar- 
monic's performance never even came 
close to matching those high standards. 
Without sets, stage action, brilliant con- 
ducting, and three inspired singers, Act I 
of Die Walkure can all too easily degen- 
erate into a dreary hour of expository 
declamation, partially redeemed at the 
end by the glorious love music. And that 
more or less is what happened on this 

I appreciated Mehta's earnest efforts 
to charge the notes with drama and 
create a palpable sense of atmosphere, 
but the effects he drew from the orches- 
tra rarely made musical sense. Instru- 
mental textures were consistently bloat- 
ed and insensitively blended, thematic 

material seemed shapeless, and the en- 
tire performance lurched erratically from 
one moment to the next. Even though 
she apparently had nothing especially 
expressive or specific to communicate 
about the role, Marton did make some 
lovely sounds as she sailed effortlessly 
through Sieglinde's music. Hofmann is 
an experienced Siegmund, but, for me at 
least, he has always been a problematical 
one — a Wagnerian hero who, from a dis- 
tance, looks like a teenage punk-rocker 
but who produces the leathery sounds of 
a worn-out, 60-year-old heldentenor. 
That left Talvela, whose monotonous 
droning as Hunding hardly added luster 
to a disappointing evening. 


sented a program at Columbia's McMil- 
lin Theater entitled A Milton Babbitt 
Celebration — a true celebration, and for 
the best of reasons. This was not a "duty" 
concert marking a birthday, anniversary, 
or some other manufactured occasion, 
but a spontaneous gesture on behalf of a 
living, working composer who has writ- 
ten a lot of wonderful music that should 
be played and heard more often. Babbitt 
has a reputation for being cerebral and 
inaccessible, but his scores never struck 
me that way. True, his creative processes 
are always complex and closely rea- 
soned — the new Composition for Guitar, 

for example, which Babbitt describes as 
follows: "The character of this one-move- 
ment work manifestly changes at about 
its midpoint, where there is a reinterpre- 
tation of the underlying rhythmic con- 
ception, which itself is a reflection of the 
basic six-part pitch polyphony, conceived 
as, and — therefore, I trust — perceptible 
as three contrapuntal duets." Well, yes, I 
guess so. 

What always brings me back to Bab- 
bitt's music, though, is not its intricate 
structural design but its self-assured ele- 
gance, gestural clarity, shimmering tex- 
tural purity, and an expressive quality 
that verges on the ecstatic. All these fea- 
tures are readily apparent in Phonemena 
for voice and piano (also performed at 
this concert in its version for voice and 
tape, both times with Judith Bettina as 
the sensationally accomplished soprano 
soloist), the Second String Quartet, and 
the early Composition for 12 Instruments. 
Each score not only generates its own in- 
dividual poetic atmosphere but also de- 
livers a surprisingly immediate visceral 
impact — partly, I suspect, because Bab- 
bitt's intellect invariably functions on 
such a high level of intensity, athletic vig- 
or, and feverish concentration. In any 
case, all-Babbitt concerts are a rare 
pleasure for those who care, and Specu- 
lum Musicae may be thanked for making 
this one especially enjoyable. mm

Theater/ John Simon 


. .Despite some superb acting and a whiff of potential drama, 
Tom and Viv never rises above a theatrical gossip column. . ." 


wretched marriage to Vivien Haigh- 
Wood, as Michael Hastings has done in 
Tom and Viv, will it do to concentrate on 
the less important, less historic, less fas- 
cinating of the two? If you are trying to 
make Eliot guilty of having Vivien com- 
mitted to an institution — even though, as 
the playwright argues, she was not 
insane — must you not make both 
characters real enough for us to 
care about them, love or hate 
them? If you are going to deal with 
some of the most advanced literary 
figures of the period — one of them 
onstage, the others barely off — are 
you not obliged to write as literate- 
ly as they did? These are the tests 
Hastings should pass, but flunks; 
not shamefully, merely dishearten- 

Granted, the London production 
that arrived at the Public Theater 
with one major cast change — Ed 
Herrmann, an American, who now 
plays Eliot (an unwise choice, 
since Eliot easily out-Englished the 
English) — has been tinkered with 
by the author and, possibly, others. 
Thus in the text, the chocolate-lov- 
ing Tom asks the chocolate-loving 
Viv (or Vivie, Vivien, or Vivienne — 
she had enough names for a per- 
fect multiple personality): "If God 
walked in the door. Collected 
poems of Bill Carlos Williams in 
one hand, box of Cadbury's best in 
the other, he said you have one 
choice, you could take the poems 
to Heaven or eat the chocolates in Hell. 
What would you take?"— "The 
poems." — "Absolutely." Now, at the 
Public, they have substituted Carl Sand- 
burg for Williams; under these circum- 
stances, if Vivien picked the poems, she 
would certainly be certifiable. 

But the real problem is that Hastings 
himself prefers chocolates. He has made 
a play out of bonbons: poisoned ones for 
Tom, and Cadbury's best for Viv. The 
play has no true knowledge of what hap- 
pened, no special insight into its char- 
acters (except the minor ones), and is 
closer to the sensibility of Liz Smith than 
that of Tom Eliot or even Vivien. Eliot is 
no favorite poet of mine, and I'm sure 
that, as a human being, he was predom- 
inantly an insufferable stuffed shirt; nev- 

ertheless, he was a man of keen intelli- 
gence and subtlety, which Hastings does 
not begin to convey. Indeed, there was 
something sexually off about Eliot: 
whether, as Jeffrey Meyers suspects, he 
was a closet homosexual (not even Peter 
Ackroyd's biography sufficiently exam- 
ines the relationships with Jean Verdenal 

Mismatch: Covington and Herrmann in Tom and Viv. 

and John Hayward); or a crypto-sadist, as 
Rosemary Dinnage theorizes in The New 
York Review; or just impotent, as his 
clandestine writing of obscene poetry 
and the clearly nonsexual second mar- 
riage would imply. In any case, Miss Din- 
nage is right to wonder — given the truss 
Eliot wore for a congenital double her- 
nia, and the menorrhagia that plagued 
Vivien — "why, in the twentieth century, 
didn't they have the appropriate oper- 
ations for these unattractive problems?" 

Trying to answer this could have made, 
even on the gossipy level, a more inter- 
esting play, but Hastings seemed more 
concerned with lampooning exploita- 
tion, whether by men of women, or by the 
social-climbing, middle-class Eliot (as the 
author sees him) of Vivien, who, though 

rather upper herself, is shown as having 
no social pretensions or aspirations 
whatsoever and thus viewable as a ple- 
beian. But this simplistic structure is 
muddied by the minor characters — espe- 
cially Vivien's mother, Rose, and brother, 
Maurice — whom Hastings, to his credit, 
perceives as more complex, unless it is 
merely a case of confused thinking 
or writing. Anyway, these two, su- 
perbly enacted by Margaret Tyzack 
and David Haig, are for me the fo- 
cal points; but Maurice and Rose, a 
play without scandal value and no 
better written, would never have 
been produced. 

Why are we never shown what 
held the Eliots together for almost 
eighteen years? And why must 
Maurice speak a kind of P. G. 
Wodehouse telegraphese? But 
Hastings is particularly bad when 
he addresses clinical matters, and 
the least credible scenes are the 
one in which Viv is committed and 
another where an American army 
psychiatrist interviews her at the 
genteel sanatorium and points out 
the medical, social, and economic 
injustices she has undergone. 
These scenes reek of inauthen- 
ticity, and it is a further mistake to 
have the lead actor, as the script 
demands, double as the medical 
officer — especially since Herr- 
mann lacks the depth and variety 
even for the one part of Tom. Con- 
versely, even the supporting Eng- 

lish actors, Richard Butler and Mi- 

chele Copsey, are exemplary, double-cast 
or not. As Viv, Julie Covington, a plain 
woman with (at least here) a high-pitched 
singsong that obstructs communication, 
twists her first-act persona into a music- 
hall turn; in the second act, however, she 
does rise to being exacerbated, exasper- 
ating, and touching all at once. 

One scene, in fact, is genuine drama: 
Tom's desperate attempt to talk rational- 
ly to the irresponsible, or merely ag- 
grieved and unconventional, Viv prior to 
having her committed. Here, there are 
enough contradictory impulses clashing 
across the boards or within each char- 
acter, there is enough universality in one 
person up against another's otherness, to 
make the scene as moving as it is well 
written. For the rest, despite fine visual

". . .Coming of Age in SoHo suffers from disunity of tone; the 
farce clashes with both the serious and the absurdist comedy. . ." 

values and Max Stafford-Clark's sound 
direction, the play never rises above a 
theatrical gossip column beset by both 
paucity of facts and fear of libel. 

Eliot was a man of culture and would 
never, like Edward Herrmann, have mis- 
pronounced Action francaise as Action 
franqais. Yet you don't have to know 
about Charles Maurras, or much French, 
to know that action is feminine. A small 
point, but emblematic of larger troubles. 

albert innaurato's Coming of Age in 
SoHo is a likable mess, but a mess all the 
same. Seemingly more rewritten than 
written, it started out with a middle-aged 
female protagonist; withdrawn and re- 
vised, it came back and out of the closet 
with a male one. This is Bartholomew 
Dante, known as Beatrice, who wards off 
his not-quite-ex-wife's efforts to repos- 
sess him with "I'm not bisexual, I am a 
homosexual who suffers temporary am- 
nesia in the presence of strong-willed la- 
dies." A promising situation: Beatrice 
has moved out of the conjugal abode 
after fourteen years and set up sparse 
housekeeping in a loft furnished with a 
typewriter, a Death in Venice computer 

game he has invented, some tentative 
sticks of furniture, and the Sara Lee 
pound cake.Haagen-Dazs ice cream, and 
unspecified coffee on which he subsists. 
And here is Patricia Gianbatista Dante, 
daughter of a Philadelphia Mafia don, 
trying to reclaim him. But already we can 
sense shaky construction: Fourteen years 
of marriage can by no stretch, or shrink- 
ing, of the imagination constitute a "tem- 
porary amnesia." Why and how were 
these two married so long? 

Well, there is something about her 
having been the prettiest girl in class, hit 
on by all the jocks, and preferring some- 
one gentler, brighter, more caring. There 
is a play in that. There is also a play in the 
hero's not having lived up to an early lit- 
erary success (corresponding to Innaura- 
to's early dramatic smash, Gemini). The 
widely read children's novel about bond- 
age and implied pedophilia, Little Boy 
Bound, was followed by failures; now 36, 
Beatrice wants to find himself and over- 
come his writer's block. There is a play in 
that too. 

So far, the tone has been that of serious 
comedy. Now, in rapid succession, there 
enter into Beatrice's life (a) Dy, actually 

Odysseus McDowell, a hectic sixteen- 
year-old Wasp on the lam from St. Paul's, 
where, as an example of how not to write, 
they read B. Dante, whom Dy admires, 
wants to stay with, and write about; and 
(b) a precocious, brilliant, highly motivat- 
ed fourteen-year-old, Puer, the child he 
had by another temporary amnesia, Hen- 
rietta Schlussnuss, a German "terrorist 
with artistic ambitions — like a critic." 
Puer, upon his mother's getting life, has 
come to find his "fahzer" — little Ward 
Saxton, as Puer, does a grand German 
accent. Why the woman's name? Because 
Beatrice, who here keeps listening to 
Mascagni and Mahler, is, like Innaurato, 
a buff, enamored of the great lieder 
singer Heinrich Schlussnuss. Here we 
are getting into in-jokes and absurdism, 
what with Henrietta's having tried to ab- 
duct an entire Wagnerian cast for artistic 
as well as political reasons, and Puer, 
who is a wizard at languages, computers, 
and existential psychology, juxtaposed 
with Dy, the rebellious Wasp and writer 
in the making. Level II. 

Level III: Patricia has a big mafioso 
brother, Pasquale, and a little mafioso 
henchman and handyman, Danny, and

there is a whole subplot about kidnap- 
ping Beatrice and threatening him with 
the deaths of the tied-up boys— Puer, Dy, 
and his stiff of a Harvard brother, Tra- 
jan — unless he returns to Patricia. This is 
a slightly updated Kaufman-and-Hart 
farce that clashes with both the serious 
and the absurdist comedy. What Coming 
of Age suffers from most is disunity of 
tone. Much is made of Beatrice and Patri- 
cia's having read Unamuno together; 
well, Unamuno said it in How to Make a 
Novel: "But is there any language with- 
out a story, or any fineness of language 
without a story finely told?" The play 
tries to make it on wit, resourcefulness, 
clever language; but where is the fineness 
of story to support the superstructure? 
And is there any framework sturdy yet 
elastic enough to prop up such a mixture 
of pathos and whimsy, esoteric wise- 
cracks and simple cris de coeur? 

There are snazzy bits of invention, sat- 
isfying gags, and moments of bittersweet 
insight, but the disjointed, piecemeal 
plotting makes one wonder whether it 
isn't all a strategy of evasion: Instead of 
hard, comic-sad nourishment, Innaurato 
scatters painless junk food at us. Can he 
not find the right plot, is he scared of 
lapsing into sentimentality, or is he 
afraid of the full truth? At one point, Bea- 
trice tells Dy, whom he'll put up, "I have 
an old rollaway bed for when my mother 

visits. I also have a rollaway life — but that 
is another story." I was wishing for that 
other story instead of the one that kept 
being rolled out. 

Probably Innaurato should not direct 
his own plays: The pacing is often as self- 
indulgent as the plotting. As Beatrice, 
John Procaccino looks uncannily like the 
author and seems to have absorbed his 
mannerisms as well; but the performance 
becomes too mannered and monoto- 
nous, notably that slow-motion eyeball- 
rolling, first heavenward, then inward. 
Ward Saxton is a delight as Puer, and 
Mercedes Ruehl a subtly accurate Patri- 
cia. There is reasonably good work from 
Scott DeFreitasas Dy and from Evan Mi- 
randa as Danny. Michael Dolan can't do 
much with Trajan, and Stephen Rowe is 
hopelessly trite as Pasquale. A splendid 
set by Loren Sherman, good costumes 
and lighting by Ann Emonts and James 
F. Ingalls, respectively, but Coming of Age 
in SoHo is much too much an act of dis- 
persal instead of concentration. 


Guys Naked From the Waist Down: 

Scott Bacula, who plays a straight 
comedian; Jerry Colker, who wrote the 
book and lyrics, and plays an angry 
comedian; and John Kassir, who plays a 
sick comedian, and surely supplied some 
of his own weirdly hilarious material. 

When these guys do comedy routines, 
or even songs with undistinguished mu- 
sic by Michael Rupert, they are expert; 
and since that is what they mostly do 
during Act I, that act is mostly pleasur- 
able and often riotous. But already a plot 
is hatching: These guys, called Ted 
Klausterman, Phil Kunin, and Kenny 
Brewster (good names!) in the show, are 
performing in various obscure spots un- 
til, after some initial disagreement, they 
form a comedy trio and go off to the 
Coast for a stint on the Tonight Show. 

Sure enough, Act II, which is more 
plot than shtick, is a drag — in more ways 
than one. These fresh young comics sell 
out to a stupid TV sitcom about a three- 
some of cops who dress up in drag to nab 
criminals. (There are plenty of slide pro- 
jections throughout the evening, and we 
get to see the guys, on and off TV, in 
drag, though at least not with their lower 
parts exposed.) Now it's all about the 
corruption of success, betrayed ideals, 
fame as a destroyer of friendship, and, 
somehow or other, the joys of father- 
hood. (The wrong baby handed to an un- 
wary progenitor at the clichd clinic?) 
One of the boys is killed by success, the 
others start from scratch. And so they all 
should. Andrew Cadiff was the able di- 
rector, and the orchestrator was Michael 
Starobin, who, rather prematurely, is be- 
ginning to repeat himself. h

". . .Hotel du Lac is a novel of whimsical detachment, muted 
hushes — just the thing for a reader with a bad cold. . ." 

Hotel du Lac, by Anita Brookner. Pan- 
theon Books; 184 pages; $13.95. 

Hotel du Lac is the sort of book to 
read when you're sick in bed and want to 
enjoy it. Is P. G. Wodehouse too bouncy 
for your delicate, fretful mood? E. F. Ben- 
son too acid? Dostoevski pitching it a bit 
strong? Then give the pillows another 
jab, pull up the fluffy blanket, and settle 
back with Anita Brookner's novel and a 
cup of herbal tea. Weak herbal tea. 

Edith Hope, an almost blameless spin- 
ster of 39, is staying at the Swiss hotel to 
finish one of her florid romance novels — 
stories that offer mousy, superfluous 
women like herself the fraudulent expec- 
tation that they will be desired by a ro- 
mantic hero. "The facts of life," she 
says — not of sex, but marriage — "are too 
terrible to go into my kind of fiction." 
Edith has also gone away — been packed 
off by her friends, in fact — for an emo- 
tional convalescence: Back in London, 
she has been the author and victim of 
some "apparently dreadful thing." The 
Hotel du Lac is just the spot for an off- 
season visitor in need of rest and privacy. 
It is "a house of repute, a traditional es- 
tablishment, used to welcoming the pru- 
dent, the well-to-do, the retired, the self- 
effacing." A prospective guest unaware 
of its reputation would be put off by its 
"perverse pride in its very absence of at- 
tractions ... the sparseness of the ter- 
race, the muted hush of the lobby." Pass- 
ing an elderly resident, "the boy carrying 
[Edith's] bags nodded vestigially and 
murmured 'Madame la Comtesse.' " 

The hotel has other guests who dislike 
lobbies with noisy hushes: the beautiful 
Iris Pusey and her fat, fair daughter — ap- 
parently another vestigial virgin — who 
strip the resort town's shops of all desir- 
able gowns, gloves, and lingerie; Lady 
Monica, there to remedy her anorexia 
but surreptitiously feeding every meal to 
her dog; and Mr. Neville, a well-groomed 
older gentleman suspiciously at loose 
ends. Looking for some mild distraction, 
Edith pokes about in their lives, with a 
lady novelist's whimsical detachment. In- 
deed, Edith's gentility sometimes ap- 
proaches the Martian; passing a shop 
with vegetables for sale, she thinks, "Evi- 
dently a grocery of some sort." 

Hotel du Lac is intelligent enough, 
smooth and inoffensive: Edith skates 

Brookner: Romance out of season. 

coolly through her narrative, occasional- 
ly making a pleasantly acerbic remark. 
("I simply do not know anyone who has a 
lifestyle. What does it mean? It implies 
that everything you own was bought at 
exactly the same time, about five years 
ago.") But the characters seem frozen in 
their characteristic poses: In every 
chapter, the Puseys are loaded down with 
brightly colored shopping bags, Monica 
is stuffing her pet with macaroons, Mr. 
Neville is contributing his titillating, 
enigmatic presence. If you picked up this 
novel after a little snooze, you'd have 
trouble finding your place. And the 
scene on the mountain, where Mr. Nev- 
ille discomfits Edith, is a study in precios- 
ity ("Edith, breathing hard, wondered if 
she were drunk or simply rendered in- 
cautious by the novelty of this conversa- 
tion. I hate you,' she shouted, hope- 
fully"). Can this fluttery affectation, 
these adorably jangling adverbs be meant 
as a parody of the genre of maidenly ro- 
mance? Is Mr. Neville's artificial speech 
(recommending himself to Edith, he says, 

"I have a rather well-known col- 
lection of famille rose dishes") 
meant to mirror his bogus char- 
acter? The vigorous reader, driv- 
en to extreme fretfulness by these 
questions, may want to reach in 
and shake these people and tell 
them to get the lead out. The 
ideal reader, however, will drift 
amiably through this combina- 
tion of coyness and despair. She 
is used, after all, to following sour 
medicine with syrupy tea.

crooked cops and straight 
reporters, seedy nightclub gigo- 
los sniffing at the big money, true 
believers groveling to magic fra- 
ternity symbols, drunks and fail- 
ures of all classes and sexes — 
here are all their voices again, in 
a new collection of stories by 
John O'Hara. Two thirds of this 
anthology is given to stories writ- 
ten after 1956, the date of the collection 
Lionel Trilling made for the Modern Li- 
brary. Many of these stories are longer 
and looser; they show O'Hara taking his 
time to explore character and place 
rather than neatly braiding a sequence of 
details into a noose that is jerked tight, 
twitching, with a sudden vision or a cas- 
ual remark. Here, again, is the fearful 
"Over the River and Through the Wood," 
in which Mr. Winfield opens the young 
girl's door at the wrong time, to see 
"loathing and contempt and the promise 
of the thought his name forever would 
evoke." "Too Young" ends with 
the teenage victim of eavesdropping 
wanting "to think thoughts that he hated 
and that would forever ruin his life." The 
latter struck me as an overemphatic little 
squiggle of melodrama, but the story has 
a wonderful last line: " 'Let me alone!' he 
said, to no one." 

In the much later "Ninety Minutes 
Away," the little whore dragged into the 
police station calmly turns around and 
propositions the chief and the coun-

" . .O'Hara's stories of snobbery are bleak, 
Tuohy's tart and compassionate. . ." 

ty attorney: "How about if you get me a 
room in the hotel? I don't care which one 
of you. I'll give you a good time. . . . Then 
how about this? You can have all I make 
over ten dollars." The local reporter, who 
says he likes pretty dames with no mor- 
als, springs her; he loses his job for it 
and goes off with the girl, but she rolls him 
as soon as he falls asleep. The story then 
goes on, for ten times the length of the 
early ones, to the man's new job and his 
affair with another reporter, the cultured, 
independent daughter of a famous col- 
umnist. Clearly this one is worthier of 
our attention, but when that terrifyingly 
vivid hustler walks out, the story goes 
into a long postcoital depression. "Imag- 
ine Kissing Pete," a turgid novella trac- 
ing a mismatched couple through 30 
years of a spite marriage, is depressed 
from the beginning; it ends in an absurd 
transfiguration (the marriage is justified 
because the son becomes the Princeton 
valedictorian) that seems to have more to 
do with O'Hara's snobbery about colleges 
than with any demands of the characters 
or plot. 

If Random House couldn't come up 
with another Lionel Trilling, did it have 
to settle for an academic dope like Frank 
MacShane? O'Hara must suffer an intro- 
duction of non-critical criticism ("John 
O'Hara belongs to [the] small company 
of great short-story writers simply be- 
cause of the quality of his work"), imbe- 
cile redundancy ("A sort of epiphany oc- 
curs. It can produce chill or warmth, 
depending on the story"), and oafish non 
sequiturs ("If Napoleon was right in call- 
ing the Piazza San Marco in Venice 'the 
best drawing room in Europe,' O'Hara's 
stories as a whole provide the best con- 
versation in America"). 

As O'Hara got older, his famous sex- 
ual frankness became increasingly dated 
and ludicrous (from the 1960 novella: 
"Mary . . . was not a teaser, but a girl who 
would kiss a boy and allow him to 
wander all over her body so long as he 
did not touch bare skin"). But even in the 
most casual or mechanical of these sto- 
ries there is something to hold our inter- 
est. The old Jewish lady in Los Angeles, 
forcibly removed to the bosom of her 
family, says, "With Walter it has to be 
seen. He has to show people every room 
in the house and everything in all the 
closets. 'My wife has sixty-four pairs of 
shoes,' he says to them, and he opens the 
closet door to prove it. The same way 
with a grandmother. A grandmother in 
New York isn't the same thing as a 
grandmother in the house!" A woman 
about to meet her old lover's daughter 
tells the maid, "I'll take the chair with my 
back to the light. At this hour of the day 

it doesn't make a great deal of difference, 
but she's young and she might as well get 
the glare." A two-bit salesman ap- 
proaches a movie actress: "So I asked 
Jerry, who was the young star that they 
were banking on the most here at Metro- 
Goldwyn. And without a moment's hesi- 
tation he named you. Miss Natica Jack- 
son. So I said right away I wanted to have 
this talk with you for the purpose of 
sounding you out on this excellent pro- 
position whereby, whereby we could 
work this out to our mutual advantage 
and profit." Some of these people may be 
appalling, but all of them are real, and all 
of them are alive. 

The people in Frank Tuohy's stories 
are all displaced persons — well-bred 
Englishmen in the stews of South Amer- 
ica, paralytically polite Japanese con- 
fronting liberated Europeans, old people 
in the country of the young. In one of the 
most affecting pieces, "Fingers in the 
Door," a middle-class, middle-aged 
mother does not behave appropriately 
and is severely punished. Facing a clearly 
superior old lady on a train, Caroline is 
resentful — "Even if there is a war and 
civilization comes to dust," she thinks, 
"this woman will never invite me to be a 
voluntary helper in her canteen." But 
when her husband is injured, Caroline 
puts the dowager's regard ahead of her 
husband's feelings, simpering with the 
false gentility of an adolescent. Not only 
does the old woman turn from her in dis- 
gust; Caroline's own teenage daughter, 
outdoing her in refinement, pouts and 
shrinks away. In the marvelous "A Floral 
Tribute," a family reacts to the grand- 
father's death in the sensible, modern 
way — that is, they make less of a fuss 
than they would about a missed delivery. 
"In the traditional drama there would be 
ritual actions to be followed by the 
womenfolk, the washing and laying out 
of the body, the drawing of blinds and 
burning of wild herbs, the ceremonial 
waitings and the choice of mourning 
clothes. But in the southern part of Great 
Britain today, these were all obsolete or 
only to be performed by professionals." 
When the Catholic maid, disregarding 
the "no flowers" notice, sends a large 
and hideous wreath, the daughter-in-law 
goes to pieces at this blasphemy of taste. 

Like O'Hara's, many of Tuohy's stories 
are about snobbery, but here, instead of 
bleakness and rancid self-pity, is compas- 
sion and tartness. (A straying husband 
thinks, "He really owed himself a good 
time — though he could not readily have 
explained how this curious debt had 
been incurred.") Some of these stories 
are superb, but all are good, and though 
there are 36, there are not enough, m

AMADEUS— (2 hr. 38 min., '84) Charming but trashy. 
Peter Shaffer has adaptated his immensely successful 
play, in which he first propounded the notion that An- 
tonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham), composer to the 
Viennese court, destroyed Wolfgang Amadeus Moxart 
(Tom Hulce) out of envy and a peculiar quarrel with 
God. He, Salieri, wants only to serve God with his mu- 
sic, yet God made him a mediocrity and choee instead 
to speak through Moxart — a bumbling, loutish boy. 
We see Mozart's years in Vienna through the prism of 
Salieri's envy — the concerts and opera productions, 
the confrontations with Emperor loeeph II and court 
officials. Abraham uses his big nose and heavy beard 
for their full weight of misery; when he expounds the 
beauties of Mozart's compositions, he seem* to be en- 
tering paradise and hell at the same time. Director Mi- 
le* Form an does his best work in re-creating the atmo- 
sphere of 18th-century opera — a time when opera was 
a living art form, not a solemn museum show. But 
Shaffer's over-explicit dramaturgy keep* pounding 
away at Salieri's envy and betrayal of Moxart, and the 
last third of the movie grows so exploitative even Ken 
Russell might have said, "Enough!" Musical perfor- 
mances by Neville Marriner and the Academy of St.

THE BAY BOY-d hr. 47 min., '88) In Canada in 
1937, a teenage boy face* new personal and moral 
responsibilities when he witnesses a shocking crime. 
With Liv UUmann, Kiefer Sutherland, Peter Donat. 
Written and directed by Daniel Petrie. B. 81 

★ BEVERLY HILLS COP-(l hr. 45 min., '84) The 
young director Martin Brett hat allowed Eddie 
Murphy plenty of room to talk hit way in and out of 
preposterous situations in this genial, leisurely police 
movie. Murphy is a renegade officer from gritty De- 
troit whose buddy hat been killed. He goes to Beverly 
Hills to investigate, and falls in with silky art-gallery 
types and the most genteel, rule-bound police force in 
the world. The movie it about the way white organiza- 
tional skill has to yield to black street-smarts, and it's a 
comedy of clashing social type*. Everyone Murphy 
meets in Los Angeles is either bizarrely straight, or 
epicene, foreign and insinuating. Many of Murphy's 
encounters have the eerie magic of inhabitants of dis- 
tant planet* getting to know one another. With good 
performance* by Judge Reinhold and John Ashton a* 
fellow police officers. Written by Daniel Petrie Ir.

BIRD Y— (2 hr., '84) A weird, literary idea for a movie, 
and damned if it doesn't almost work. Nicola* Cage is 
an ordinary Joe growing up in sixties Philadelphia, 
Matthew Modine an odd, obsessed boy whom Cage 
grows to love and protect. Birdy — a* the Modine char- 
acter is called — love* birds of all sort* and wants to 

Dy. He's so enthralled by bird* that he'* barely hu- 
man — he look* at girls with complete indifference. 
The scenes of the two boys growing up are often funny 
and oddly affecting, but unfortunately the story hat an 
oppressive framing device — in the "present" (i.e., 
around 1970), both boy* have become wrecked Viet- 
nam veterans. Birdy has gone catatonic and perches 
(literally) on his bed, stark naked, and hi* friend 
walks around with a horrible bandage covering most 
of hi* face. In their scenes as vets, Cage is grossly 
sentimental and loud, and Modine'* beatific stare 
grows monotonous. See it, though, for the bird visions, 
and the amazing bird "flights." From the William 
Wharton novel Dir. Alan Parker. (Ian. 21, 1985) R. 

★ BLOOD SIMPLE— (1 hr. 36 min., '84) A hair-raiting 
and funny gothic thriller, set in Texas, in which the 
characters are driven by lust, jealousy, and greed — 
the immemorial trinity of pulp fiction. The director, 
Joel Coen, making hit debut, ha* a deliberate, slightly 
hokey, up-from-horror-filmi style, but alto enough 
humor to prevent hit material from turning into crude, 
primal pulp. Working with his brother, Ethan, Coen 
has created a story rich in surprise, betrayal, and 
coincidence — a thoroughly satisfying, old-fashioned 
tale, with roots in the heated, sex-driven crime stories 
of James M. Cain and Jim Thompson The principal* 
are Abby (Frances Mc Dorm and), a bored near-slut; 
Ray (John Gets), the not-too-bright stud bartender she 
convinces to run away with her; her husband, Marty 
(Dan Hedaya); and the vicious divorce detective, 
Vieser (M. Emmet Walsh), whom Marty hire* to kill the 
couple. The Coens put these four primitives through a 
crazy round of double crosses and misunderstandings 
that grow in hilarity even as they remain strictly logi- 
cal. The movie hat numerous perverse touches and a 
horror-film edge, yet it never pastes over into the su- 
pernatural — the sense of the uncanny is produced 
strictly through realistic meant. An amazing first film. 
(Jan. 21, 1983) R. 6. SS. 62

hr. 50 min., '84) A young black extraterrestrial (Joe 
Morton), lands with a splash near Ellis Island and 
wind* up in Harlem, where he't taken for just another 
loser. He doesn't speak, but he has such a tad and 
receptive face that the people he meets pour out their 
souls to him. He's an escaped slave, chased by a pair 
of white bounty hunter* who emit banshee yells, but 
nearly everyone in Harlem alto seem* to be displaced 
and either running or hiding. This gentle and touch- 
ing comedy, written and directed by the incredibly 
resourceful John Sayles, is both a hipster's parody of 
science fiction, and an elegy for a wounded communi- 
ty. Sayles, using the camera with considerable wit, 
has devised some mock-funny chase scenes, but the 
glory of Brother is it* talk. In a time when most film- 
maker* are indifferent to blacks, Sayles ha* restored 
to Harlem tome of its voice. (Oct. 1, 1984) 90 

CHOOSE ME— (1 hr. 54 min., '84) Another of Alan Ru- 
dolph's self -conscious movies about shallow, lost peo- 
ple in Lot Angeles. This one hat tome laughs and a 
pastiche of pretty visual styles, but it's still painfully 
mannered. Keith Carradine is the escaped mental pa- 
tient who mesmerizes all the women, Lesley Ann War- 
ren the unhappy owner of a bar, Genevieve Bujold a 
radio sex advisor who knows nothing about tax, Pa- 
trick Bauchau a gangster, and Rae Dawn Chong a pa- 
thetic barfly who writes poetry and grows jealous of 
her husband. (Nov. 19, 1984) R. 16 

THE COTTON CLUB-(2 hr. 1 min., '84) This whirl- 
ing, fiery pinwheel of a movie leaves a jangled, unsa- 
tisfying imprint on the mind. There's an exciting, sus- 
tained atmosphere of danger and glamour and some 
brilliant bits, but director Francis Coppola and writer 
William Kennedy imposed a mechanical symmetry on 
the material without ever combining the film's two 
genres — gangster film* and musical comedy — in a 
way that hat any emotional power. Composing the 
movie for "pace," in tiny, tightning-fast scenes, Cop- 
pola relies on "typical" incidents — and so, despite it* 
length, the picture feel* thin and movie- ith. Richard 
Gere, weightless as always, it at the center as a cornet 
player, and this makes no sense, since whites did not 
play at the Cotton Club. The filmmakers invent flimsy 
reason* for him to be there, but he never really fit* into 
the movie. The on-stage number* are shoehorn ed into 
the picture without any connection to the plot, and 

Coppola (hoots them in fragments — just when you are 
getting involved in what the dancers are doing, 
there's a cut. But some of the performers don't come 
off badly, especially James Re mar as Dutch Schultx, 
Bob Hoskins a* Owney Madden (the gangster-owner 
of the club), and Julian Beck and Fred Gwynne as 
their respective subordinates. With Gregory Hines, 
Lonerte McKee, Diane Lane, and Nicolas Cage. (Dec.

20 min., '84) A Canadian documentary about the on- 
going persecution of black Jews in Ethiopia; the film 
was a catalyst for Israeli rescue efforts. Dir. Simcha 
Jacobovici. 8 

min , '88) Sean Perm, an edgy, hard-driving daredev- 
il, and Timothy Hutton, still too earnest but at least a 
little better-looking now that he's older, are Daulton 
Lee and Christopher Boyce, the real-life American 
traitors convicted in 1977 for selling secret* to the So- 
viet Union. Steven Zaillian's screenplay, based on the 
book by New York Time* reporter Robert Lindsay, 
present* the boys a* product* of the banal affluence of 
Southern California in the '60s. Christopher, working 
at a plant that has a CIA contract, is shocked by his 
discovery of CIA dirty tricks, and sells to the Russians 
the codes in which CIA spy satellites transmit infor- 
mation. Daulton, a scummy drug-dealer, serves at hit 
courier. At presented by director John Schlesmger 
and Zatllian, Christopher is an idealistic boy, which 
makes no sense: Why did this idealist accept money 
from the Soviets? And if he hated CIA tricks, what did 
he think the KGB was up to? Still, it's a good story. 
Perm, brilliant throughout, makes Daulton sly, cagey, 
yet desperate to fit in somewhere. If either of the two 
boys comes near moral innocence, it is he.Schletinger 
move* things along very fast, but then will stop for a 
long reverie in the hills, where Christopher train* fal- 
con*. From moment to moment, the picture feels deci- 
sive, but afterward* nothing in it quite makes sense.

★ THE FLAMINGO KTD-(1 hr. 40 min., '84) A 
crudely conceived, often sentimental coming-of-age 
comedy that is surprisingly blunt about money. Neal 
Marshall's screenplay it a morality tale about the nou- 
veaux riches and the working class. Matt Dillon, the 
son of an honest-prole plumber from Brooklyn, spends 
the summer working at a beach club in Long Island, 
hobnobbing with friends whose parents have pros- 
pered and moved to "The Island." During the sum- 
mer, Matt falls under the influence of Richard 
Crenna, the gin-playing "king" of the club, a si easily 
likable foreign-car dealer with a smooth line of patter. 
Which daddy is the boy going to embrace? The issues 
are laid out too pally, but the movie is lively and 
funny, and it neatly captures the atmosphere of the 
gaudy pink cabana club, with its brown-breasted girls 
in bikinis, its nerdy, giggling boys, its summer-long 
gin game*. Dillon turns in a creditable performance, 
and all the actors are good, even Crenna, who pulls 
more guile and humor out of hi* role than one had

★ THE OOD6 MUST BE CRAZY-(1 hr. 49 min.. '84) 
An amiable, shaggy-dog-story-type comedy, written 
and directed by lamie Uys, a South African who 
makes friendly jokes about the outside absurdities 
and discontinuities of African life. In the pseudo-doc- 
umentary opening, we see footage of the Bushmen 
who live in the Kalahari Desert of Botswana, a gentle 
people whose peaceful lives ore disrupted when a pi- 
lot carelessly drops a Coke bottle from his cockpit. 
The Bushmen think the smooth, hard, useful object is 
a gift from the gods, and begin squabbling over it. 
When their leader, Xi, decides to throw it off the end 
of the world, ha moves to the edge of the desert, where 
he encounters the representatives of "superior" white 
civilisation, including a burly microbiologist who 
turns into a bumbling fool around women; a beautiful 
blond schoolteacher heading for a new assignment in 
the bush; and a bunch of shockingly lasy Communist 
guerrillas (they play cards a lot). Director Uys mixes 
anthropological comedy and slapstick; he knows his 
Harold Lloyd and his Keystone Kops. Some of the 
gags are not of a very high order, but Uys keeps them 
coming, and he makes use of everything he's got.

★ THE KILLING FIELDS— (2 hr. 19 min., '84) The 
story of a friendship set against the dark, disastrous 
background of Cambodia's recent history. This Brit- 
ish-made epic is about Sydney Schanberg (Sam Ws- 
terston), the Tinted* correspondent in Cambodia dur- 
ing the concluding years of the civil war between the 
Khmer Rouge and the American-backed Lon Nol gov- 
ernment, and Dith Pran (Haing S. Ngor), his Cambo- 
dian assistant — his translator and troubleshooter, the 
man who did the coaxing, bribing, and corner cutting 
that are part of a war correspondent's routine. When 
the Kilmer Rouge took over, Schanberg could no 
longer protect his friend. Back in America, he broods 
guiltily and writes endless letters to relief organisa- 
tions while Pran, unbeknownst to Schanberg, survives 
in a forced-labor camp. The British director Roland 
Joffe, in his feature film debut, captures the horror of 
Asian war and Communist totalitarianism with sor- 
rowful eloquence, but the relationships in the fore- 
ground ore awkward and undeveloped. And when 
Joffe cuts back and forth between the two men, one 
begins to rebel at the moral implication that a guilty 
conscience is as painful as incarceration. Sam Wat er- 
st on'i tearful, self-righteous performance doesn't 
help, but Cambodian refugee Haing S. Ngor is su- 
perb. (Nov. 12, 1984) R. 14, 30. 48. 83, 92, 1 13.

MICKI & MAUDE-U hr. 57 min., '84) Playwright 
Jonathan Reynolds wrote the script of this Blake Ed- 
wards farce, and some of the lines are brighter than 
usual for an Edwards movie, but Edwards's half- 
creepy attitudes coma through anyway. The hero, Rob 
Salinger (Dudley Moore), wants to have a baby more 
than anything in the world, but his wife, Micki (Ann 
Reinking), a successful lawyer, doesn't have the time. 
Rob falls in love with Maude (Amy Irving), a beautiful 
young cellist, and suddenly both women are preg- 
nant. Rob races back and forth between the two wom- 
en, lying to both. That he behaves like a snake is an 
acceptable comic convention. That the filmmakers 
make all sorts of excuses for him (he didn't mean to 
cause anyone any harm) is, an the other hand, rather 
pathetic. The movie reaches its climax in a deftly 
played and directed but grossly conceived scene in 
which (of course) both women have their babies at 
once. Moore gives his best performance in years, Irv- 
ing is magnetically sexy, but Ann Reinking is stiffly 
great-ladyish just when she's supposed to be a good 
sport. The movie is a lot like a soon-to-be-cancelled 
TV sitcom, and the mechanically farcical nature of the 
material wears one down. (Jan. 14, 1983) PG-13. 38.

MRS. SOFFEL-0 hr. SO min., '84) Honorable, well 
crafted, but impoverished. Mel Gibson, sporting an 
American accent that evokes both Henry Fonda and 
John Wayne, plays a convicted robber and murderer 
who is awaiting execution in a Pittsburgh prison along 
with his brother (Matthew Modine). The year is 1901, 
and the prison warden's wife (Diane Keaton) is a high- 
minded and pious lady who hies to improve the pris- 
oners' souls with readings from the Bible. Gibson se- 
duces her through the bars, and she helps him 
escape; she escapes, too, leaving the warden's prison- 
like apartment (and her children) behind. It's a sexy 
story, but the Australian director Gillian Armstrong 
(My Brilliant Career) shoots everything in such a 
somber, rigidly unsensational style that she takes the 
excitement out of it. The movie is so sober and quiet 
that it's setting doesn't seem to be American. Yet Gib- 
son and Keaton are both excellent, and the final 
shoot-out in the snow is miraculously beautiful. (Jan.

1984— (2 hr. 3 min., '84) Completely boring. Almost 
every shot is iron gray, with wet, dank, colorless back- 
grounds and nvUky lighting. The buildings are 
bombed out or defaced, the people pasty-faced au- 
tomatons. This latest version of Orwell's novel has 
been made in a spirit of misguided fidelity that should 
not be confused with talent The movie is so lifeless it 
could have been conceived by the book's familiar 
" (John Hurt), after he has been 

brainwashed. (Jan. 28. 1985) R. 14, 61. 71. 528. 
617. 708. 792. 878 

PARIS, TEXAS— (2 hr. 30 min., '84) A fiasco. Ameri- 
ca's hottest playwright, Sam Shepard, wrote it, and 
Wim Wenders directed it, and what results from this 
doubling up of obsessions with America as myth is a 
lifeless art-world hallucination — a movie composed 
entirely of self-conscious flourishes. Harry Dean Stan- 
ton, the favorite actor of Hollywood hipsters, stars as 
the Man of the West — the mute wanderer who has 
been shattered ever since he and his wife (Nottattja 
Kinski) split up four years ago. After wandering in the 
desert, Stanton collects his towheaded child (Hunter 
Carton) who has been raised by his brother, and 
heads for Texas to find Kinski. Much of the dialogue 
is flat and impersonal, and the great Stanton gives a 
neutral performance. Wenders sends the characters 
through a western landscape that has passed into self- 
conscious myth; some of the images look like post- 
cards, some like photo-realist paintings. The final 
scenes resolve the movie visually, but we're left with 
nothing more than the myth of the Westerner, the 
myth of the loner, and so on. With Dean Stockwell anil 
Aurora Clement. (Nov. 19, 1984) R. 9, 85, 213. 828.

★ A PASSAGE TO DMDIA-(2 hr. 40 min., '84) Large- 
scale, spectacular, yet also intimate, light on its feet, 
even debonair. David Lean, 76, builds movies the old 
way, with brick, mortar and stone. The narrative is sol- 
id, the characters pleasingly complex, the society they 
inhabit recognizably treacherous. Lean, adapting 
E. M. Forster'l classic 1924 novel himself (he also 
leaned on Santha Rama Rau's stage version), sticks 
close to the spiritual and physical state of the two Eng- 
lish voyagers to India, the delightful Mrs. Moore 
(Peggy Ashcroft) and Adela Quested (Judy Davit), a 
queer, honest, sexually repressed girl whose earnest 
desire to know "the real India" leads to so much trou- 
ble. Making friends with the volatile Indian, Dr. Aziz 
(Victor Banerjee), the two women journey with him to 
the Marabar caves, where the sinister echo drives 
them both mad: Adela brings a charge of assault 
against Aziz, and the benevolent Mrs. Moore becomes 
cranky, indifferent, and sour, and goat off to die. 
Around these spiritual and metaphysical happenings, 
a large social picture comes into focus. Except for 
Lean's vagueness with Mrs. Moore, and a rum travel- 
ogue ending, the movie is satisfyingly solid, even ex- 
citing, ludy Davis, a commanding personality, isn't 
really convincing at an hysteric. But all the other ac- 
tors are excellent, including James Fox and Alec 
Guinness. (Jan. 7, 1985) PG. 48. 108. 109. 118.

PLACES IN THE HEART— (1 hr. 50 min., '84) Writer- 
director Robert Benton has drawn on memories of his 
own family's history in rural Texas for this pious cele- 
bration of hard times and togetherness in the Depres- 
sion. The movie it beautifully made, and occasionally 
affecting, but it's to carefully calculated, to tame and 
essentially conventional, thai it cannot be taken seri- 
ously as art. Sally Field it the indomitable Edna 
Spalding, who goes into business, after her sheriff 
husband is accidentally killed, with a black hobo 
(Danny Glover). Together they plant cotton, fighting 
the long odds of the Depression literally from their 
knees. The family is enlarged as well by the haughty 
boarder Mr. Will (John Malkovich), who hat been 
blinded in the World War. In an unconnected sub- 
plot, the husband (Ed Harris) of Edna's sister (Lindsay 
Crouse) hat an affair with a married woman (Amy Ma- 
digan). All of these performers ore excellent and 
might have achieved something miraculous if turned 
loose, but Benton's teste and craftsmanship only dis- 
guise how sentimental the material is at heart. (Oct 1,

THE RETURN OF THE SOLDIER-(l hr. 41 min.,

ory of a love affair twenty years earlier, and indiffer- 
ent to the feelings of hit wife and spinster cousin.

A SOLDIER'S STORY-(l hi. 42 min., '84) Charlea 
Fuller' a adaptation of bit award-winning A Soldier'M 
Play is both an absorbing murder mystery and a heart- 
wrenching investigation of the fomilUr question. How 
shall a black man live in white society? In 1944, aa a 
black combat unit stationed in Louisiana awaits over- 
seas assignment, the unit's sergeant, Vernon Waters 
(Adolph Caesar), is murdered. Washington sends a 
black officer, Captain Davenport (Howard E. Rollins 
Jr.), to investigate, and Davenport's interrogation of 
the men serves as the frame for a series of flashbacks. 
For all his seriousness. Fuller structured the play and 
the movie in the shape of an Agatha Christie murder 
mystery. Many of the men, it turns out, have reason to 
hate Waters, an inverted racist and martinet so jeal- 
ous about improving the lot of Negroes he destroys the 
Negroes he doesn't approve of — the ones who sing 
and dance and smile. This tormented man is a poten- 
tially great character, but Adolph Caesar, photo- 
graphed in tight close-up, is portentous and gravelly, 
in the Jack Webb manner. Norman Jewison's direc- 
tion is generally stagy and over-emphatic but the ma- 
terial is still fascinating. With an outstanding support- 
ing cast, largely drawn from the Negro Ensemble 
Company. (Oct 1, 1964) PG. 16. 38. 82, 90, 102.

SQUIZZY TAYLOR— (1 hr. 41 min., '82) The life story

of the 1920s. With David Atkins, Jacki Weaver, Alan 
Cassell. Dir. Kevin Dobson. 87 

★ 8TARMAN— (1 hr. 58 min., '84) Jeff Bridges gives a 
brilliantly inventive and witty performance as an ex- 
traterrestrial who lands on Earth and takes the form of 
Karen Allen's dead husband. Bridget's Starman, 
trying desperately to pass aa Homo arectot, can't quite 
get the moves right — he stands up so straight his neck 
turns into a pole, he jerks his head around like a bird 
seeking feed, and from time to time he flashes a grin 
that looks like Lawrence Walk's famous smile. The 
movie, a thriller in form, is derivative and rather 
cheesy — FT. with sex — but it has a good heart, and 
Bridget's performance keeps one involved. Dir. John 
Carpenter. (Dec. 17, 1984) PG. 1 1. 22. 38. 60. 97.

★ STOP MAKING. SEN8E-(1 hr. 28 min., '84) In the 
beginning of this superb film record of a Talking 
Heads concert, David Byrne, the leader of the group, 
emerges alone on a bare stage, holding his guitar. 
With his neat, slicked-back hair, bony frame, cream 
suit and white shoes, he is extremely elegant, an 
ironic cross b e t wee n Cab Calloway and William S. 
Burroughs. The him is elegant, too. After Byrne per- 
forms the first number by himself, the rest of the band 
enters in subsequent numbers, one or two at a time, 
until Talking Heads reaches its full strength of nine. 
As the group grows in size, the music grows richer, 
adding female voices, and calypso, African, and gos- 
pel sounds. Byrne is mesmerizing — among other 
things, he's a terrific, lories limbed dancer, inventive 
and spontaneous, energetic but non-egotistical. Di- 
rector Jonathan Demme works with a steady camera 
and cool colors rather than the usual flaming purples 
and hand-held ecstasy. The movie is completely un- 
hackneyed, and a delight. (Nov. 5, 1964) 7, 51 

★ STRANGER THAN PARADISE— (1 hr. 30 min., 
'64) In this hip black comedy, the young American 
filmmaker Jim Jarmusch works in austere black and 
white, with each sequence consisting of a single long- 
lasting shot leading to a blackout. Not a great deal 
happens — the story is more observed than galva- 
nized. But what there is of it is perfect. Willie (John 
Lurie), a young man who emigrated from Hungary ten 
years ago, lives a marginal existence in a shabby New 
York tenement, accompanied, now and then, by his 
buddy Eddie (Richard Edson). The men are virtually 
twins — skinny, with flattened noses that extend to 
meet horsey lips — and as self-assured in their bizarre- 
ly out-of-it style as the lunch crowd at Le Cirque. Into 
their Uvea comes sixteen-year-old Eva (Easter Balint), 
just off the plane from Budapest and considerably 
smarter than either of them. In some way that neither 
can articulate, Eva stirs the two doltish, saturnine 
men, and the movie turns into an oddly touching 
American road him in which the three wander aim- 
lessly from the freezing white nothingness of Lake 
Erie to the motel wasteland of Florida. The absurdist 
ending proves that America is indeed the land of op- 
portunity. Lurie did the music, which is harshly beau- 
tiful in the Bartok style. (Oct 8, 1984) R. 88. 828, 

★ A SUNDAY IN THE COUNTRY-; 1 hr. 34 min., 
'84) In French, Eng. subtitles. A beautiful and moving 
autumnal film by Bertrand Ta vernier about a fictional 
artist of the Impressionist period who never achieves a 
unique style and who arrives at the end of his life real- 
izing that he will be forgotten. Monsieur Ladmiral 
(Louis Ducreux) suffers, for he sees the colors as we all 
do, without the transforming imagination of a Monet 
or Cezanne or van Gogh; the failure of his vision kills 
him. When I .admiral's grown children come to visit 
him in the country, he reacts as a much younger par- 
ent might — he looks for evidence of his own strengths 
and weaknesses. He cannot, for instance, forgive his 
son (Michel Aumont) for selling out on his own ambi- 
tions. His daughter, Irene (Sabine Asa ma), he forgives 
entirely, for she embodies the heedless spirit he 
missed in his own life. Tall and noisy, dressed entirely 
in white, Irene bursts into the movie like a tornado, 
and stirs her father up. The ending, in which Gabriel 
Fame's music sweeps over the images with surprising 
power, suggests the mixed happiness and anguish of 
a belated rebirth. (Nov. 26, 1964) G. 56 

TCHAO PANTIN — !i hr. 40 min., '84) In French, Eng.

* WITNESS— (1 hr. 54 min., '85) Remarkable. In Peter 
Weir's new movie (incomparably his best), a hard- 
ened Philadelphia homicide detective (Harrison Ford, 
in a smashing star performance) hides out in an 
Amiah farm deep in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, 
where he protects both himself and a young Amish 
boy who was the unwilling witness to a murder. This 
specialist in urban corruption is amused by the spot- 
less Amish, who are harsh, narrow, and exhauxtingly 
virtuous, but also amused at himself for liking them so 
much. In some ways, he is one of them. But only in 
some ways. Peter Weir, whoae portentous style has al- 
ways been irritating in the past brings all the bruising 
speed to the Philadelphia scenes that one could want, 
and out in the country he achieves the meditative 
strength — the tension in quiet — of a master director. 
The light is soft, the landscapes gentle and nurturing. 
The detective's violent way of life is criticized, yet 
such is the pull of violence, and of this particular 
hero, that the movie only fulfills itself when the hero 
swings back into action. Still, it's the most beautiful 
and thoughtful thriller one could imagine — a one-of- 
a-kind movie. With the talented KeUy McGillis as the 

young Amish widow the detective falls in love with.

AMARCORD— (2 hr. 7 min., '73) In Italian, Eng. subti- 
tles. Fellini's best movie in recent years is an autobio- 
graphical piece about life in a small Italian city — Fel- 
lini's hometown — during the Fascist period. The 
anecdotes are delicately comic and sad, and the pic- 
ture is split between regret and nostalgia. 1 0 

THE AWFUL TRUTH— (1 hr. 30 min., '37) A smart, 
sophisticated screwball comedy— one of the beet. 
With Irene Dunne, Gary Grant and Ralph Bellamy. 
Dir. Leo McCaray. 95 

FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE-(l hr. 48 min., '63) 
One of the early James Bond movies, from when they 
were truly exciting and wonderful and almost believ- 
able. With Sean Cannery, Pedro Armendariz, and 
Lotte Lenya. Dir. Terence Young. 39 

THE GODFATHER— (2 hr. 55 min., '72) The greatest 
American movie since Citizen Kane— passionate, viv- 
id, funny, and, at times, very moving. Francis Ford 
Coppola turned Mario Puzo's novel about the genera- 
tions of a Mafia family into an epic about the corrup- 
tion of America, with organised crime as a metaphor 
for big business. With Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, 
James Caan, and Diane Keaton. 39 

IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT— (1 hr. 43 min., 34) 
Clark Gable's macho charm seems dated now, but 
Claudette Colbert is, as usual, exquisite in this com- 
edy about a runaway heiress and a newspaperman 
who fall in love on a cross-country chase. Not as good 
as the faster-paced screwball comedies of the Depres- 
sion, but still a classic. Dir. Frank Capra. 95 

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA— (3 hr. 41 min., '62) Still 
the best spectacle movie ever made. Peter O'Toole, 
golden hair flying in the breeze, dons white robes as 
T. E. Lawrence, English uniter of the Arabs during 
World War I. Much heroism, moral anguish, masoch- 
ism, sadism, and murky politics. Magnificent desert 
photography. With Omar Sharif, Alec Guinness, and 
Jack Hawkins. Dir. David Lean. 98 

LIFEBOAT— (1 hr. 36 min., '44) A drama that takes 
place entirely on a lifeboat written by John Steinbeck 
and Jo Swerling and directed by Alfred Hitchcock. It 
gets a little claustrophobic, but the performances, 
especially Tallulah Bankhead's, are marvelous. Best

Bendix, Henry Hull, and John Hodiak. 89 

PASSIONS D'AMORE— (1 hr. 37 min., '81) In Italian, 
Eng. subtitles. A romantic tale spiced with black hu- 
mor and perversity. In the Italy of the 1860a, a splen- 
didly handsome young cavalry officer (Bernard Gir- 
audeau), in love with a beautiful married woman 
(Laura Antonelli), is reassigned to a remote post 
where he becomes the object of the infatuated love of 
his commander's cousin, (Valeria d'Obici), a power- 
fully ugly woman with protruding teeth and sunken 
vampire's eyes. At first sickened by the love-stricken 
woman's demands, the officer is trapped by pity, but 
then, to his utter astonishment he finds himself in- 
flamed by the woman's passion for him. The movie is 
an ironic parable of beauty captured by ugliness, di- 
rected with great assurance by Ettore Scola. 96 

min., '83) In French, Eng. subtitles. Plain and crafts- 
man-like in style, but fascinating. In a small French 
farming village in the sixteenth century, a dour young 
husband, Martin Guerre, leaves his wife and disap- 
pears from town. Years pass without word, and than 
he returns. Or so it seems; the man who returns (Ge- 
rard Depardieu) is bigger, better-looking, and full of 
life. He sssms to recognize everyone, and later that 
night his wife (Nathalie Bays) embraces him fervently. 
Has Martin grown up in some miraculous way, or is 
this man an impostor? If he's an impostor he's also a 
very good husband, and it's part of the movie's special 
grace to suggest that being a husband might qualify 
as a creative act. Written Jean-Claude Carriers and 
directed Daniel Vigne. 50 

TO CATCH A THTEF— (1 hr. 37 min., '55) Cary Grant 
and the Riviera never looked better than in this Hitch- 
cock comedy-adventure, and Grace Kelly, as a cool, 
super-jaded heiress, manages to project sex appeal as 
well as elegance. Hitchcock, no doubt, can take credit 
for that as well aa for the sexual comedy that takes the 
place of real female-male chemistry betwee n Kelly 
and Grant The plot has Grant, an ex-jewel thief, us- 
ing his old tricks to trap an impostor; it's short on 
thrills, but helped by the charm of the cast and the 
beauty of the surroundings. With Jessie Royce Landis 
and John Williams, who are marvelous. 89

The American Express Course in Fine Dining 1 

Lesson 172: 
How to eat at Hatsuhana 
when they're booked solid* 

When all the tables are filled at Hatsuhana I, just bring the 
American Express® Card over to the new Hatsuhana II 
at 46th and Park. You'll find the same exotic sushi and 
Japanese specialty dinners that recently earned 
Hatsuhana I four stars in The New York Times? 

At Hatsuhana II, you'll enjoy a masterfully prepared 
dinner from two sushi bars in an Oriental decor that's as 
lovely as Hatsuhana I. So visit the new Hatsuhana on 
Park Ave., (212) 661-3400. And don't forget the 
American Express Card.

Solution! to lut wc« It's puzzlei ippew on pt|e 132. 


Every expensive sedan promises hap- 
piness once you've bought it. 

However, each differs widely on what 
constitutes happiness. 

At BMW, we believe contentment has 
improbable origins— in microprocessors, 
suspension designs, braking systems— 
and that it is experienced some ten thou- 
sand times a year, on mile after mile of 
winding road and highway. 

There, BMW 735i owners will enjoy a 
prosperity no other luxury car provides. 

It has, for example, a new anti-lock 
braking system with electronic sensors 
that monitor all four wheels. These sensors 
"tell" the brakes to apply pressure inter- 
mittently, pulsating in split-second intervals, 

*£> 1984 BMW ot North America, Inc The BMW trademark and logo are 

preventing locking and allowing the driver 
to steer even in panic stops. 

The 735i's new 3.5-hter engine uses 
the third generation of a BMW innovation 
called Digital Motor Electronics. Here, 
other sensors probe the engine, feeding 
data back to a microprocessor. It then 
tells the engine the precise moment to fire 
for peak performance. 

This would suggest the 735i is pure- 
ly a "road" car— if you weren't surrounded 
by evidence to the contrary. 

Richly-grained wood paneling accents 
an interior characterized by thick carpet- 
ing and seats covered in furrows of 
fine leather. A wraparound dash presents 
all manner of vital and easily readable 

egistered European Delivery can be arranged through your authonzed U S 

information. There's even a multifunctional 
onboard computer and a separate 
indicator that informs you when routine 
service is advisable. 

Perhaps most important, the 735i pro- 
vides a return on investment that's rare in- 
deed. A driving experience that, as Car and 
Driver wrote of 7-Senes BMW's, "can 
take a limited amount of time and turn it in- 
to an experience to be savored for always." 

We invite you to sample a small but 
revealing portion of that ex- 
perience at your nearest 
BMW dealer. Where the new 
735i awaits your test drive.
