Washington -- You can't help liking Pat Conroy. Forget all the stereotypes of the private, guarded writer when it comes to this guy. He's a big, outgoing man with a ready smile and an engaging manner. He's got a million stories, mostly about himself and his pretty weird family, and he tells even the sad ones with humor and charm. In fact, he may be the world's nicest egotist.He's a world-class raconteur, one who says he was influenced by the storytelling traditions of the two groups he belongs to: the Irish and Southerners.

New York - It has been 27 years since a knobby-kneed 22-year-old from Brooklyn teetered onstage on Broadway in her first starring vehicle, belted out "I'm The Greatest Star" (a song that now seems more like a prophecy than a show tune), and in the course of the musical's first five minutes became a legend.Some things, however, never change: Barbra Streisand still knows how to make an entrance.A rainy Sunday morning: Ms. Streisand has left her Manhattan aerie and is about to descend upon the St. James Hotel, where she will grant a rare interview to talk up her film adaptation of "The Prince of Tides," which grossed $15 million in its first week and which she directed, starred in, and, according to "Tides" author Pat Conroy, who has a screenwriting credit along with Becky Johnston, even wrote.

David Fritts was standing within a display of Ranger bass boats while a good crowd roamed the aisles at Bass Expo this past weekend in the Cow Palace at the state fairgrounds in Timonium.Now and again, Fritts would answer a question or point to an important feature on one boat or another, but as of late afternoon Saturday, it did not seem that Fritts was drawing a crowd befitting one of the hottest professional bass fishermen around.Not to worry, Fritts said, there is time still to capitalize on his victory in last summer's Bass Masters Classic.

HOLLYWOOD -- "If you cast wrong, it's not an easy day," said director Barry Levinson, who with Oliver Stone and Barbra Streisand addressed a recent Directors Guild of America seminar. During the course of the 2 1/2 -hour discussion, they shared, among other tidbits, some of the agonizing that went into casting Oscar nominees "Bugsy," "JFK" and "Prince of Tides."Mr. Levinson said that he was "amazed" at the number of people who turned down various roles in "Bugsy." The part of gangster Meyer Lansky, in fact -- for which Ben Kingsley received a best supporting actor Oscar nomination -- wasn't filled until a week before the shoot.

NEW YORK -- After decades of being the quintessential private person, the reclusive diva, the reluctant star, Barbra Streisand is suddenly spilling her guts.There's Streisand being playful on the cover of Vanity Fair. There's Streisand being grilled by Mike Wallace on "60 Minutes." And there's Streisand being interviewed by a platoon of journalists during a recent weekend in Manhattan.The reason for this outpouring of personal detail has been to promote "The Prince of Tides," the new film that she produces, directs and stars in with Nick Nolte.

It's been a few years between films for Blythe Danner. Five years ago, she played the mother in the film version of Neil Simon's ''Brighton Beach Memoirs.'' She did television and stage in the ensuing years (she did ''Blythe Spirit'' at the Mechanic in 1987) but did no movies until last year, when she did Woody Allen's ''Alice,'' ''Mr. and Mrs. Bridge'' and ''The Prince of Tides.'' which Barbra Streisand directed.''It's because the children are grown,'' said Danner. ''I'm free to do more films than I did. My daughter is 18 and away at college, and my son is living in Riverdale, N.Y. Now I can go here and there for three weeks at a time.

...TC Marylanders should watch the Academy Awards Ceremonies with a lot of interest this year. Sure, Baltimore's Barry Levinson is nominated for best director and his film "Bugsy" is nominated for best picture, but there's another talented family that seems to have worked on the sound production for most of the big pictures made last year.That name is Maitland. Now where do I begin? Dennis Sr. grew up in Baltimore and attended Forest Park High school before going to New York to pursue his career as a production sound mixer.

Barbra Streisand has performed a minor miracle, of sorts, with "Prince of Tides." As a director, she has extracted from Nick Nolte the best performance of his career.Nolte has always done well, but here he is required to be more than one-dimensional. He responds with a performance that is admirable in all areas.So is the film. Streisand, who also stars in the film, is a bit self-indulgent in the love scenes, but in all other respects this is a splendid movie version of an excellent novel.
