Now, with a setback in his planned defense of a $6-million lawsuit filed against him by Canadian financier Jack Singer, Coppola is rumored to be in a commercial mood to write and direct "Godfather III."

Nothing is simple with Francis Ford Coppola, least of all his bankruptcies. In the filmmaker's latest pair of Chapter 11 proceedings--and there have been four since 1983--the biggest creditor is longtime Coppola associate Fred Roos. Roos, a good soldier, has co-produced at least 16 of Coppola's films, from "The Conversation" to "Tucker." He also served as an officer of Coppola's Zoetrope Corp.

In your obituary of Braven Dyer Jr., I was surprised that you did not mention that "Bud" Dyer was the son of Braven Dyer, the respected and fine sportswriter for the L.A. Times during the '30s through at least the '50s. Braven Sr. was a contemporary in the sports department of Bill Henry early on, and then Paul Zimmerman, Paul Lowry, Jack Singer and others, and later on Jack Geyer, Harley Tinkham and Johnny De La Vega, who were acquaintances of mine.

He'll always be the Other Bergman to some people, less glamorous than Ingrid, less morose than Ingmar, more obscure than either one. But no matter, because when it comes to modern screen comedy, writer-director Andrew Bergman is, as "Honeymoon in Vegas" (citywide) proves one more time, nothing less than the emperor of the absurd, a man who is funny in a way quite his own.
