NEW YORK (AP) _ At 53, Warren Beatty still leaves women breathless, but he drools a lot while smooching, a former girlfriend says.

Actress Mamie Van Doren, who dated Beatty in the early 1960s, makes that claim in the July 2 issue of People magazine.

″He drools a lot. He has such active glands,″ she said.

Beatty directed and stars in the summer blockbuster ″Dick Tracy.″ His latest flame reportedly is his co-star, Madonna.

″Warren and Madonna are still an item, but nobody believes it,″ said Madonna’s publicist, Liz Rosenberg. ″It’s Warren and Warren only.″

An Associated Press story June 25 about counterfeit baseball and football cards gave incorrect descriptions of the differences between the fake and legitimate Score cards featuring Bo Jackson.

On the back of the legitimate baseball card, the word “BO” appears with the B in blue ink and the O in black ink. The fake baseball card back has the word printed all in black. Both the fake and legitimate cards have white borders.

The legitimate football card has a purple border around a black-and-white photo of Jackson, and the back has a color photo of Jackson. There is no color printing on the fake football card, Score said. ..........................................................................

DALLAS (AP) - You better know Bo to avoid getting stuck with worthless collectibles.

Counterfeit Bo Jackson baseball and football cards are in circulation, said George Martin, a spokesman for Score, the company that puts out the real thing.

″We don’t want kids getting hurt,″ he said Friday. ″Any real collector is going to know, but some 10-year-old kid could get hustled because they’re being told these cards are more valuable.″

The authentic cards sell for about $15, said Dallas cards dealer Dick Wickline. The fakes are fuzzy and have black and white borders. The originals have purple and green borders.

Jackson plays football for the Los Angeles Raiders and baseball for the Kansas City Royals. He also makes Nike commercials.


HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - Priscilla Allen says her head-splitting performance in the new Arnold Schwarzenegger film ″Total Recall″ is brief but unforgettable.

″I certainly have had a lot of exposure with my head coming apart all over the country,″ she said. ″Evidently my scene is extremely memorable because total strangers are coming up to ask me about it.″

Allen’s exploding head is featured in advertisements for the sci-fi thriller.

″I look like a real person in the movie and then you find out (Schwarzenegge r is) inside me and I’m his disguise,″ she said.


NEW YORK (AP) - Jazz bassist Milt Hinton marked his 80th birthday on a stage crammed with his musician friends.

Jazz greats young and old turned out for the concert at Town Hall, including bassist Jay Leonhart and trumpeter Wynton Marsalis.

Leonhart sang a tune he wrote just for the occasion that included the line: ″Before the birth of Branford and Wynton, I was friends with Milton Hinton.″ Branford is saxophonist Branford Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis’ brother.

Hinton led a line of 11 bassists playing his call-and-response ″The Judge Meets the Section.″


NEW YORK (AP) - John Voldstad, one of the silent brothers Darryl on television’s ″Newhart,″ choked out the words ″I do″ at his wedding.

For years, the blond, chubby Voldstad only grinned when introduced by brother Larry as one of the two Darryls. The grin remained when he recently wed 20-year-old Kellye Fowler in Gadsden, Ala.

Voldstad, 39, met Miss Fowler in August when he was playing tennis in a celebrity tournament in Macon, Ga., and she asked him for an autograph.

″She was spelling Kellye with a ye, and I thought, ’Umm, that’s very pretty,‴ Voldstad said in the July 2 issue of People magazine.

Miss Fowler’s mom wasn’t too keen about the romance and - not trusting those Hollywood types - went along on most of the couple’s dates.

Miss Fowler, who wants to act, appeared on ″Newhart″ as an extra before the show went off the air.
