Dear President Gorbachev: I wish to discuss a serious matter. Over the past months I have watched with growing alarm as your policies of glasnost and perestroika --well intentioned, I suppose--have created an insidious threat to all of us here in Hollywood. Knowing you are fully occupied with other matters, i.e., rectifying the fresh orange shortfall in the Moscow Mom-and-Pops, I am writing to bring you an update on our own crisis. Truth to tell, it all starts with some good news.

The set is a 16-ton mock-up of a Soviet sub's control room, mounted on a huge mechanically maneuverable platform 22 feet above Stage 15's concrete floor. "Full left rudder!" Neill barks, and as he does, there is a quake. A real one, 4.

For Dan Rodriguez, the sea was a fabulous escape. "The ocean is different," he says. "You go out there, you were always breathing that sea breeze. Things are clearer. You could see the stars at night, different cloud formations, the wildlife, herds of sea lions. It's a different world." It's a world, however, that is now shut off to Rodriguez.

As Alec Baldwin explains it, his has been a "blink-and-you've-missed-him" movie career. Take, for example, his small but juicy role last year as Michelle Pfeiffer's husband, Frankie (The Cucumber) DeMarco, in Jonathen Demme's "Married to the Mob." The critics thought he was great--that is, if they overlooked the fact that he died in the first 15 minutes. "I can't tell you how many friends of mine who went to see the movie said, 'God, I couldn't find a place to park.
