Touchstone Pics has finally managed to placate star Shelley Long over billing for "Outrageous Fortune," upcoming in February. Bette Midler will have top billing in half of the country and Long is No. 1 in the other half. That means two sets of posters, lobby cards, trailers, etc.
According to a rep for Long, her top billing was guaranteed, since she was the first star signed for the film. But Midler, star of Touchstone's two recent hits, "Down and Out in Beverly Hills" and "Ruthless People," ain't exactly chopped liver.
