IT'S GOOD to be underestimated!" That's what George Hamilton says, as we sit in the dimly lit bar of Manhattan's plush Plaza Athenee hotel. He has arrived; impeccable, calm, but amused by something that he said delayed him slightly. "It's time to get married or get a butler," he laughs, "being alone is not as much fun as one might imagine." (For the record, George has been married, to Alana Stewart, and they have a son, Ashley. The rest of the time has been spent romancing great beauties who never speak badly of him once the affair is over.

There's a restaurant scene partway through Act 2 of "La Cage aux Folles" that spotlights Christopher Sieber, playing Albin, the reigning drag queen of Saint-Tropez in the propulsive and entertaining production at the Hippodrome this week. Albin, decked out like an overstuffed Margaret Thatcher and still hurt by perceived slights from the most important people in his life, is called upon to sing a little something. Sieber's whole body subtly softens and seems to glow as he sings in gentle, conversational tones: "Hold this moment fast, and live and love as hard as you know; make this moment last, because the best of times is now. " No great shakes as a lyric or a tune, but Sieber's nuanced singing sells it so affectingly that you'd swear it was the most divinely inspired song in the Broadway canon, a bittersweet anthem as much for those in love as for those who feel threatened.

George Hamilton just wants a cup of coffee, that's all. But a small obstacle confounds the handsome, supernaturally tanned actor in his Tulsa, Okla., hotel room — the coffee maker. "This is a whole new experience for me," he says by phone. "I'm 72 years old. It's about time I learned how to do this. Hold on a minute. " Vague clanking sounds can be heard, for more than a minute. "It doesn't look like coffee," Hamilton says when he gets back on the line. "It's just sugar and milk and warm water.

Why do Dancing With the Stars viewers insist on casting their votes based solely on who they like and totally ignoring ability? I get that people like Wayne Newton, but it's ridiculous that he stayed on despite a 15/30 from the judges, and Albert Reed was sent home instead. Either the stars need to be of the same level of popularity, or, as one of my blog readers noted, the viewer vote should count for less. We don't need another Master P (or Billy Ray Cyrus or George Hamilton or Jerry Springer)

There's nothing wrong with "Eight Heads in a Duffel Bag" that three re-writes and a new director wouldn't have solved.A so-called black farce, it follows as Mafia meathead Joe Pesci tries to track down the duffel bag of the title, which has gotten mixed up on an airline flight to San Diego. By the physics of lazy screenwriting, it's come into the astonished possession of an amiable but otherwise unremarkable medical student named Charlie (Andy Comeau, and I don't know who he is either), who is spending his vacation with his girlfriend (Kristy Swanson)

"Live fast, love hard and die young," Faron Young sang in his 1955 hit of the same name, "and leave a beautiful memory." No matter whether Young had his late friend Hank Williams in mind: The cliche never fit a hillbilly singer so perfectly.Williams' 29 years were busy ones: His now-hallowed canon of desperately emotional work made him the most celebrated country artist of his day, and he went out as poetically as any tragic young figure, succumbing to a mix of morphine, alcohol and powerful sedatives in the back of a Cadillac limousine en route to a New Year's Day concert in 1953.

It has been two years since Susan St. James retired from the fast-paced life of a television and movie star, but the 45-year-old actress hasn't exactly been sitting around with her feet up."I've got an 8-year-old son who's a Cub Scout -- that's a career in itself," quips Ms. St. James, who spent more than two decades acting and whose last role was Kate McArdle in the television comedy "Kate & Allie." "I had to learn to use a drill to do all the scout projects. I should be the one who gets the merit badges."
