Howard Cushnir made some money writing screenplays but, like many screenwriters, what he really wanted was to direct. He decided to finance his own movie--but only had enough to make a rough demo reel. And he felt guilty asking dozens of film professionals and vendors to donate time and products just to benefit his career. Turning the project into a charitable event solved both his problems.

Advance publicity for the 40-minute featurette "Sexual Healing" (Sunday night at 10 on Showtime) tells us that the seriocomic short delves into the potentially titillating topical subject of phone sex, but "in a warm, touching, non-exploitive manner." Just what the racy yet reactionary '90s have been waiting for: A look at the saucy world of 900-prefix sex lines, Capra-corn style.

"The Big Brass Ring" (1982, directed and written by Orson Welles.) Orson Welles' last film, a passionate examination of the American Dream as revealed through the relationship between an expatriated New Deal liberal (Welles) and his protege (name of superstar) who is about to run for President, is the perfect bookend for a career that began with the 1941 masterpiece "Citizen Kane." That paragraph would have made a nice insertion in Steven Scheuer's annual "Movies on TV" guide.

Today, the steadily receding calendar reads, "The Great Peace March: 148 days to go." Every time David Mixner walks out of his office at PRO-Peace (People Reaching Out for Peace) headquarters on Beverly Boulevard on the Westside, he sees the calendar and panics, he says. But judging by the behavior of Mixner and his colleagues in the bustling office complex, the mood at PRO-Peace seems one of exhilaration rather than panic.
