SHORT TAKES : Lancaster 'In Good Spirits'

January 04, 1991| From Times Wire Services

Oscar-winner Burt Lancaster is showing some signs of improvement after a stroke in November left him partially paralyzed, his agent said.

"He's doing as well as can be expected. He's responding to the therapy and is in good spirits," Ben Benjamin said Thursday.

The 77-year-old actor suffered a stroke Nov. 30 and is under care at an undisclosed hospital near his Los Angeles home.

Lancaster starred in more than 70 movies and won an Oscar in 1960 for "Elmer Gantry."
