Some of us were fortunate enough to see a different John Carradine in the 1950s and early '60s when Ventura Boulevard narrowed down to a narrow road in Tarzana. There, in a local bar called the Hangman's Tree, Carradine would sit at the bar and regale the occupants with bawdy jokes for hours on end. To hear his sonorous voice, with Shakespearean splendor, give new dimensions to old jokes is a pleasure I'll always remember. John was even on stage in this little bar; an inveterate trouper, he always satisfied.

Forget the Hollywood Walk of Fame refrigerator magnet, the Mickey Mouse ears beanie and the postcards of the Golden Gate Bridge. Tourist Karina Ille will have a much more memorable souvenir of her California visit when she returns Sunday to her native Austria. Last weekend the 21-year-old Ille discovered a rare star-shaped piece of benitoite in San Benito County, where this country's only mining spot for the gem is located. That exclusivity prompted officials to proclaim benitoite as California's state gemstone in 1985.

The true actor is an actor is an actor is an actor. The salary may be large enough to keep a whole country afloat for several days or so small you can't afford a second cup of coffee. But all that really matters is that you stride on stage or stand in front of a camera and pretend to be somebody else.

In "The Resurrection of the Undead" (by Hugh Hart, Dec. 21), the great John Carradine, by far the best Dracula of them all, was totally left out in this supposed survey of the character's appearances in movies. This is not only unacceptable but unbelievable. BILLY MANN Santa Monica

If Robert Carradine blows a line on a movie set, the director just re-shoots the scene. But if Bobby Carradine blows a line on the race course at 110 m.p.h., then Robert Carradine has a big problem. Carradine is starting in the second row for today's Bridgestone Potenza Supercar Series at the Camel Grand Prix of Greater San Diego. Having starred alongside John Wayne, Lee Marvin, Walter Matthau and Dennis Hopper, Carradine might be best known for leading the "Revenge of the Nerds."
