HOLLYWOOD -- Being the king of rock and roll apparently wasn't enough for Elvis Presley. He wanted to be a G-man, too.According to his FBI file, recently placed on its Web site (http: //www.fbi.gov), Elvis offered to be an FBI informant.Elvis told the FBI in 1971 he had been "approached by individuals and groups in and outside of the entertainment business whose motives and goals he is convinced are not in the best interests of this country."The memo said that "Presley indicated that he is of the opinion that the Beatles laid the groundwork for many of the problems we are having with young people by their filthy, unkempt appearances and suggestive music ... He advised that the Smothers Brothers, Jane Fonda and other persons in the entertainment industry of their ilk have a lot to answer for in the hereafter for the way they have poisoned young minds by disparaging the United States in their public statements and unsavory activities."

WASHINGTON -- Timothy Wirth says he is trying to save the world, and he may actually have the money to do it.The former senator from Colorado was tapped last fall by Ted Turner to carry out a task no one ever expects to be handed: Decide how best to spend someone else's $1 billion -- and then spend it. The only restriction is that the cash must help attack some of the world's daunting afflictions, such as overpopulation and disease.When Turner, the media guru who founded CNN and is vice chairman of Time Warner Inc., announced in September that he was dedicating the money to a variety of United Nations causes, skeptics labeled him impulsive, quixotic, even downright loony.

Two films airing on Showtime today may be enough for you to consider calling in sick today, or at least taking a long lunch.Maggie Smith won the first of her two Academy Awards for 1969's "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" (11: 15 a.m.-1: 15 p.m.), where she's marvelous as a teacher at a Scottish girls' school in 1932 whose students become immersed in art, music and some ill-chosen politics. There are even a few romantic subplots and some schoolgirl conniving thrown in for good measure. But the story is secondary to Smith, who's so good that her performance has since become a model for every would-be actress trying to portray an English schoolteacher.

Slashing a crowd into a frenzyIn Atlanta, it's the tomahawk chop. In Greenville, N.C., the latest rage is the saber slash.The new move is in anticipation of 20th-ranked East Carolina's big day today, a showdown with No. 23 Pittsburgh. And, much like fans of the Braves, Pirates backers will be armed with purple or gold plastic foam sabers, hoping to help cut up the Panthers for a sixth straight victory."Unbelievably fantastic," bookstore owner Don Edwards said of sales of the sabers, which have reached 3,000 in three days.

RECENTLY I read in the newspaper that Jane Fonda is happiest when she spends four hours a day exercising.This was according to her media mogul fiance Ted Turner, who did not specify exactly what Ms. Fonda does in those four hours, but hinted that it was rigorous enough to leave a Green Beret clutching his chest and gasping for breath.Of course, ol' Ted couldn't just let it go at that. He also felt compelled to blab about his fiancee's eating habits.According to Mr. Turner, this is what passes for meals in the Jane Fonda household:Breakfast: a shake made from protein powder, ice cubes and a few berries.

"Point of No Return" isn't a remake so much as a tracing of another movie, Luc Besson's original "La Femme Nikita" of just three years ago. So in a certain respect it feels dead; it has glitz, glamour and pizazz but no personality or spontaneity; it feels as if it were directed by a robot. Whatever it represented to Besson, I'll tell you what it represented to John Badham: a paycheck.Still . . . it kind of packs a punch. OK, I watched, I rooted, I enjoyed and, toward the end, I was involutarily pulling the trigger along with our heroine.
