Joey Bishop, the deadpan comedian who was ABC's answer to NBC's late-night talk-show king Johnny Carson in the late 1960s and was the last surviving member of Frank Sinatra's legendary Rat Pack, has died. He was 89. Mr. Bishop, who had been in failing health for some time, died Wednesday night at his home in Newport Beach, Calif., according to his longtime friend, publicist Warren Cowan. An adept ad-libber with a dry, underplayed sense of humor, Mr. Bishop achieved his greatest fame in the 1960s.

Last Monday, I devoted my opening story to Marlo Thomas being in an L.A. restaurant talking about supposed plans to do a big-screen version of her landmark TV series, That Girl. This item was meant to be newsy and upbeat for this philanthropic and creative actress. Marlo then called: "Liz, I was never in that restaurant and I never talked to anybody about a film version. That Girl belonged to a certain time when young girls were just learning to be `free to be.' My partners and I are flattered by requests to do a movie version but decided long ago to leave it in the moment where it belongs!"

In an age when time is always at a premium, "going home to change" between work and play is almost never an option. This fact of life has made the go-everywhere dress a wardrobe essential, and you're going to see it everywhere this spring.In chemise, sheath and trapeze shapes, the dress-me-up/dress-me-down dress is a flattering alternative to the dress-for-success suit or sportswear combos that are so much a part of the workaday office scene."The dress is easy, comfortable and versatile," says Bruce Binder, vice-president/fashion director Macy's Northeast.
