Like his high-profile record career, Jerry Rubinstein's business ventures have amounted to an endless search for hits. United Artists records was one early chart topper. Rubinstein and his partners bought and sold the company for a tidy profit in the 1970s. Then there was Bel-Air Savings, a small thrift he and some major Hollywood players sold with what, in hindsight, was perfect timing in 1987, just before the S&L industry unraveled. But with the hits have come some misses.

There's but one business for the 2,800 folks in this Smoky Mountain foothill town to pursue--and it ain't makin' moonshine. It's tourism. The town gets lots and lots of tourists--about 4 million a year. Pigeon Forge is one of two places in Tennessee to be officially given Premier Resort City status by the state General Assembly. But the other day, entrepreneurial concerns were cast aside momentarily while residents celebrated the return of a local lady who hadn't been around for a spell.

It is Tuesday night, the place is packed to the gills, and maitre d' Craig Susser of Dan Tana's restaurant on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood has just told a group of young couples out on the town that he's sorry but he just doesn't have a table for a party of six. There must be some mistake, they insist, their name is right there in the reservation book. But Susser instantly sees through the ploy.
