Outraged friends and colleagues are rallying to the defense of late '50s screen hunk Jeff Chandler to offset damage done to his reputation by Esther William's racy bestselling autobiography, "The Million Dollar Mermaid." According to Williams, who began a love affair with Chandler during the shooting of "Raw Wind in Eden" in 1956, Chandler was "happy and secure only in women's clothing." Cross-dressing, she writes, gave the actor a sexual thrill.

Re Liz Smith's column "Was Telling This Tale Necessary?" (Aug. 11): What do you suppose would prompt a matronly ex-movie star to write a biography in which she denigrates a former lover? Esther Williams, whose acting abilities always remained in the pool, has obviously been in denial all these years regarding her dalliance with Jeff Chandler. Having known Jeff quite well, I am sure he felt that there should be a slight touch of femininity in their relationship. Jeff had a great sense of humor.

As a child in post-World War II England, Shirley McGlade clipped a picture of movie star Jeff Chandler and put it in her wallet. That was her father, she told schoolmates--a rich American who had divorced her mother and was fighting for custody of her. "People believed me," she said. "I lived in a fantasy world."

*** "Broken Arrow." Key . $19.98. This pleasant, good-hearted little western about the relationship between a white settler (Jimmy Stewart) and the Apache Chief Cochise (Jeff Chandler) probably delivered one of the strongest and most effective popular pleas for racial tolerance of any early-'50s American movie.

"Broken Arrow"? Terrific film. One of my favorite Jimmy Stewart westerns. Jeff Chandler's Cochise is his very best performance, and isn't Debra Paget just achingly beautiful? What's that? We're talking about a completely different film here? Has Hollywood become so derivative of late that it can't come up with original titles for films? (Don't get me started on Michael Crichton and "The Lost World"). INGRID NUERNBERG Los Angeles

Chris Bray's article on the theremin refers to "The Day the Earth Stood Still" as a "Z-Movie" ("From Russia, With Love," So SoCal, June 8). Excuse me! That 20th Century Fox picture was written by Edmund H. North, directed by Robert Wise and scored by Bernard Herrmann. All three have at least one Academy Award on their resumes. The film's producer, Julian Blaustein, had then just completed the landmark James Stewart-Jeff Chandler western "Broken Arrow," and "Earth Stood Still's" cast included such distinguished actors as Michael Rennie, Patricia Neal, Hugh Marlowe and Sam Jaffe.
