Kate Bosworth had trouble seeing herself as early-'60s starlet Sandra Dee in the new Bobby Darin biopic, Beyond the Sea, despite sharing a blond-haired, blue-eyed gamine quality. "I watched two of her movies, A Summer Place and Come September, and then I freaked out, worrying about doing her voice and her style," says Bosworth, 21. So she called Kevin Spacey -- who directed the film and stars as Darin, who was married to Dee -- and he assured her that, "It's not an imitation. The performance had to come from my heart."

At Ron Jon Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach, Fla., amid the buzz from fans waiting for the "real Gidget" to autograph their books, a girl of about 6 has a question. She faces the honey-haired woman sitting on the stage and asks, "Are you a surfer?" Kathy Kohner Zuckerman stops signing in mid-sentence and peers at the girl through thick-framed glasses. "She asked if I'm a surfer," Zuckerman repeats loudly. Then she smiles at the child and answers, "I am the legend. I was the first girl surfer."

I thought Sandra Dee gave an excellent performance in the schmaltzy "Here on Earth," except it isn't Sandra Dee -- it's Leelee Sobieski. And the movie isn't set in 1954, it's 2000. Aside from a few swear words and a reference to the sexual use of handcuffs, "Here on Earth" could have been written and filmed in 1954. Like "Peyton Place" or "A Summer Place," it deals with hot-button issues -- suicide, disease, neglect -- but does it in a superficial, Hallmark Card way.

NATIONAL Threats loom in AIDS fight New York's alert that a gay man had become ill with a possible super strain of HIV has left experts eager for clues that could show whether the strain poses a threat to public health. But while some fear a repeat of the grim, early days of the AIDS epidemic and others say the strain is likely nothing new, nearly everyone agrees that the case has revealed the waning of safe-sex practices that were credited with curbing the epidemic.

Sloan Wilson, 83, author of the best-selling 1955 novel whose title, The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit, became a catchphrase to describe frustrated suburbanites striving for the illusive and ever-more-expensive American Dream, died Sunday in Colonial Beach, Va. He had Alzheimer's disease. Although Mr. Wilson wrote more than a dozen novels and many articles for such magazines as the New Yorker, Harper's, Reader's Digest and Life, The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit was his greatest success.
