By the time Al Gore took the podium at the Democratic National Convention, actor Richard Dreyfuss had already met with the vice president. In fact, the star of "Mr. Holland's Opus" had scored even more impressive coups. There was his two-hour tete-a-tete with President Clinton and his lunch with key Middle East peace negotiators. He had traveled to Israel three times and met with then-Prime Minister Shimon Peres. No one is expecting Dreyfuss to help restore Middle East peace.

Gov.-elect Gray Davis may have the same name as an achromatic shade, but he's no painter--at least not a professional one. Which means he won't be allowed to slap some paint on a city recreation center when he and his wife, Sharon, spiff up a small part of Los Angeles on Saturday. The Davises will instead paint the Wilton Elementary School--picked because their first choice, the Echo Park Recreation Center, gave them a last-minute brushoff.

Look for the emergence of a new political power in L.A. The name--the Book Study Group--certainly doesn't reflect its purpose, which is to push political candidates to take stronger positions on gay issues, especially testing of AIDS drugs.

The billboards on the Sunset Strip--long the battleground for advertisers touting everything from Calvin Klein to Marlboro to Pia Zadora--have been enlisted for a new war on a new target: film makers. In the last month, four of the towering graphics along the two-mile stretch most traveled by the movers and shakers in the film industry have been jousting for industry attention.

In advertising you call it a tease or a come-on. Something to pique your interest, get the juices flowing and make you want more. At L.A. Works, a Hollywood-based nonprofit group founded by actor Richard Dreyfuss, public policy consultant Donna Bojarsky and attorney Bob Johnson, the hope is that their second annual volunteer day, "The Works '94," scheduled for Saturday, will entice Angelenos to take a shot at volunteering and keep them coming back for more.
