We went out to Harry's Bar in Century City the other evening for the judging of the eighth annual Imitation Hemingway Contest, and it was a bacchanal, as usual. One of the judges, Barnaby Conrad, was ill in Santa Barbara, and another, Jack Hemingway, the master's son, was fogged in at the airport in Salt Lake City; so we were reduced to Ray Bradbury, Digby Diehl, Paul Keye and me; plus our first woman--Bernice Kert, author of "The Hemingway Women."

Jack Hemingway was prepared for the worst. Time after time, Ernest Hemingway's eldest son has cringed and fumed at biographies or screen portrayals that he feels have distorted, sensationalized and exploited his father's life and writings, both for commercial payoff or literary blood sport. But now comes "Hemingway," the six-hour docudrama starring Stacy Keach as America's most celebrated writer. The two-part story concludes tonight on KCOP Channel 13.

Although fish literature rarely hooks non-anglers, knowing the lingo isn't necessary to enjoy these collected stories, columns and poetry. The father-as-fisherman theme ranges from an aloof-but-kind Ernest Hemingway on a Montana river, depicted by his son Jack Hemingway, to the bumbling dad presented by W. Bruce Cameron, knocking his son into the lake and losing a big fish to boot.

JACK LONDON, HEMINGWAY, AND THE CONSTITUTION: Selected Essays, 1977-1992 by E.L. Doctorow (Random House: $20; 206 pp.). It shouldn't come as a surprise that E.L. Doctorow, writing nonfiction, is at his best discussing novelists like Jack London, Theodore Dreiser, and George Orwell; they, too, were sociopolitical writers, interested in the hypocrisies and duplicities of modern civilization.

The Scene: Monday's "Judgement (sic) Night," as it's lightly called, of the International Imitation Hemingway Competition. The contest is about writing "one really good page of really bad" Ernest Hemingway. It was held in Century City at Harry's Bar & American Grill, a clean, well-lit place that validates for parking. Who Competes: Eric Lax described the ideal competitor as "a guy who bullfights in the shower."

The Ernest Hemingway myth lives on, immortalized now in four-poster beds and duck decoys. Consumers will have to decide whether to have or have not. Brand Hemingway has joined the rapidly growing ranks of licensed products for the home, a cross-pollination of a 20th century literary titan and the current penchant for celebrity labels. The spin: If you loved the book, you'll adore the decorative throw.

Mary Hemingway, a foreign correspondent who became the often embattled wife but "always good friend" of the fabled author, has died, it was learned today. Jack Hemingway, the Nobel laureate's eldest son by an earlier marriage, said the writer's widow was 78 when she died Wednesday at St. Luke's Hospital in New York City. Death was attributed only to "a long illness."
