The World Wrestling Federation, after winning a mini-bidding war for Debbie Reynolds Hotel & Casino, said Friday it plans to convert the bankrupt Las Vegas property into a themed resort to showcase its cast of hulking characters. The WWF was forced to raise its initial $10-million offer after an outside creditor appeared in court to bid $10.5 million. But the WWF upped its final offer to $10.6 million, which was approved Friday by U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Las Vegas.

Gripping the seats in the small, darkened theater, the audience is engrossed in the action on the screen. The room is vibrating, and eyes as wide as gramophones are fixed on the high-definition video. Disneyland's Star Tours? Not quite. . . . Debbie Reynolds' Hollywood Movie Museum. It's a little high-tech for a museum, but this is a Hollywood museum, and it is in Las Vegas. The star-studded opening is tonight--on Reynolds' 63rd birthday.
