Researchers raised another cannon from an underwater site two miles offshore. They hope it will help prove the sunken wreckage was once the flagship of the notorious pirate Blackbeard. "We knew it the first day, and we still have absolutely no doubt that she's the Queen Anne's Revenge," said Phil Masters, whose Florida-based research firm located the wreckage in 1996. "There is no other ship lost at Beaufort Inlet with anything more than 10 cannon."

Dyan Cannon's two cats, Puppy and Kitty, were snoozing in cushy chairs while we sat on her living room floor, talking, laughing and snacking on fruit. The actress, whose latest movie, "Out to Sea," with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, opens next week, slowly peeled the skin from a tangerine. "Look at that," Cannon, 60, observed.

"Loose Cannons" (citywide) is yet another mismatched buddy-buddy cop movie. Even though director-co-writer Bob Clark has a bright, genial style, there's a foredoomed feel about it all. Gene Hackman is the tough, irreverent old pro, Dan Aykroyd is his overly sensitive, on-the-edge partner and, once again, they battle their way through a screaming maze of psycho criminals, car-chases and wisecracks to find happiness. As a buddy couple, Hackman and Aykroyd are not bad.

Gene Kira had to see it for himself, and sure enough, there it was, in the dank confines of the collection room in UCLA's ichthyology department, stuffed headfirst in a jar full of alcohol, all mottled and brown-- Opisthognathus rhomalea. The Bigmouth Bastard, in the flesh, 40-plus years removed from its watery world south of the border and looking very much its age.
