T allulah's back, and she's as bawdy as ever. Well, sort of. For the past 42 years, the real Tallulah Bankhead, who will forever be remembered for her baritone-laced husky pronunciation of the word "Daaaaaahling," has been sleeping away the ages in a quiet corner of a Chestertown churchyard, perhaps sipping celestial bourbons and smoking cigarettes while dressed in her trademark full-length fur coat. Last week, she stepped back onto Broadway, courtesy of actress Valerie Harper in "Looped."

" It also works as the art-imitating-art story line for the two Baltimore-area actors starring in the new musical version of "Rocky" that opens this week on Broadway.
