FOR a month now, young Hollywood has been planning a retirement party. The guest list spans the pop culture landscape -- studio executives, novelists, Academy Award winners, sitcom writers, musicians. One proposal has Martin Scorsese jumping out of a cake. The honoree will take the bus unless he can hitch a ride with someone. A lively, bespectacled bachelor who lives alone in a rent-controlled apartment, he can't drive.

Re "Reel life was his real love," Column One, June 27 It has been 27 years since I last sat in Jim Hosney's classroom, listened to the whirl of a 35-millimeter projector in his apartment or heard that laugh, but time has diminished neither my fondness nor gratitude. While my vocations are law and politics rather than film, the lessons learned from this master permeate much of my work. One of the greatest testaments to Hosney is that my legal briefs, press releases and speeches often contain references to such decidedly nontraditional sources as "Alice in Wonderland" and "Rashomon."

What is it about "Indecent Proposal" that has hit a nerve? It's been another week of impressive box-office grosses, another rash of anti-"Indecent Proposal" vitriol and spirited defense--in the press, to the press, on radio talk shows and elsewhere. There isn't a day that goes by, it seems, when someone else doesn't weigh in with their views on why the picture is (a) offensive to women, (b) implausible, (c) fodder for satire, (d) escapist fantasy or (e) only a movie, for heaven's sake.

More than 18 months after the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library opened in Simi Valley, Ronald Reagan the actor has finally hit the screen there in an eight-film festival that promises to be a marked departure from the executive trappings already on display. "This is something that's been talked about since we started," said library spokeswoman Stefanie Salata. "A lot of people do comment when they see the (museum's) Hollywood section. They say, 'Oh, you should show his movies,' " Salata said.
