At times when he mentions God, Father Bud Kieser describes a lovable but quirky sounding guy with whom Kieser is on familiar but exasperating terms: A demanding sort who orders him to be a priest, tells him "no go" and would not be above slipping a banana peel under Kieser's ego. On other occasions, Kieser describes an omniscient Supreme Being whose essence is existence and whose existence is felt both in the exterior universe and deeply within Kieser himself. "Both are a part of me," he says.

While Hollywood's reputation was being flogged before a Senate Commerce Committee hearing in Washington recently, some of those back in the den of iniquity were mourning the loss of one of their own--a priest. The death of 71-year-old Father Ellwood E. "Bud" Kieser was both sudden and striking--striking for the way it coincided with one of the more high-profile political assaults on the entertainment industry.

Father Ellwood Kieser, who died last Saturday, was a paradoxical simplicity. The work he chose placed him square in a world--Hollywood--where, at bottom, the values he professed were patronized and the idea of a life organized by faith was perceived as naive. Indeed, Fr.

The occupants of the red sedan tensed. Several yards ahead, blue-uniformed federales herded people out of their cars at a roadblock. Women and babies were crying. In their eagerness to find a cache of drugs or weapons the soldiers had overturned family belongings and heaved them on the side of the road. The guns the soldiers carried--and on occasion pointed at people--were loaded. A passenger in the car urged the driver not to be cocky with the young soldier who approached.

Father Ellwood "Bud" Kieser, who chose to work within Hollywood as a television and movie producer rather than condemn it, as have so many other clerics, has died. Kieser died of cancer at Cedars-Sinai Hospital on Saturday evening. He was 71. A Paulist priest who liked both the limelight and the entertainment industry, Kieser headed Paulist Productions for four decades.

PRIEST: A Spiritual Struggle by Ellwood E. Kieser (Doubleday: $19; 352 pp.) Battling a popular culture "more concerned with the coupling of bodies than with the fusion of souls," Father Ellwood Kieser no doubt must feel like a fish out of holy water in Hollywood. But what's extraordinary about Kieser is that he has managed to produce successful films and TV shows in a community that does not exactly take well to unabashed moralists. How does he do it?

Thank you for David Milch's warm tribute to recently deceased Paulist priest Ellwood Kieser ("Hollywood Was This Priest's Mission," Sept. 23). I must add, however, that not only did Kieser dedicate his life and his films to bridging the worlds of believer and unbeliever, but he sought to bridge the worlds of the wealthy and the poor. Kieser produced powerful works such as "Romero," with the late Raul Julia playing the role of Archbishop Oscar Romero, who was assassinated for speaking out against a brutal dictatorship on behalf of the poor in El Salvador.
