When Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies arrested the son of Hollywood great Clark Gable on suspicion of driving under the influence and hitting several cars in Malibu, he appeared to be "on drugs," authorities said. John Clark Gable , 52, was arrested about 3 p.m. Tuesday. Gable allegedly hit a vehicle near the Malibu Pier whose driver then followed him while calling 911, said Sheriff's Sgt. Phil Brooks. Gable crashed his Ford Raptor into at least five parked cars in the 21300 block of Pacific Coast Highway.

Actress Lynn Redgrave was on the witness stand in Los Angeles, hating every minute of it. She was being questioned by her ex-husband in one of the nastiest Hollywood divorce trials in years. John Clark, acting as his own attorney, drew close to show her a document. Redgrave flinched. "Please, I would rather he didn't," she implored the judge. "I understand that sparks fly between you and Mr. Clark," Superior Court Judge Arnold Gold told her. "Just grit your teeth and answer his questions."

Stephen Belber, in his indecipherable essay on writing for theater ("A Place for Characters to Evolve," May 24), avers that an audience can be held spellbound watching two characters talking about the death penalty for three hours. He is also attempting to use the descriptive word "sucky" as a measure of whether a play is worth staging. He then sees himself as Sisyphus, pushing the boulder uphill, and never quite getting there, so what the hell, we'll do it for film instead. One is forced to conclude that Belber is pushing a boulder full of ideas that suck, ideas that should fall to the bottom of a very deep heap.

As Lynn Redgrave's collaborator and coach from just after "Georgy Girl" (1967) to "Gods and Monsters" (1999), I'd like to comment that she is, in my opinion, the best of the lot ("The Family Business," Dec. 15). She can have her off days, but there's an honesty about her acting that is her signature and, in my opinion, can't be beat. I never did figure out how she did it, but could only try to create the right environment for her. Now I see she's left town. I wish her well.

Before frenzied fans in an overcrowded high-desert high school gym in January, 1987, Jackson Clark made the most important pair of free throws of his life. The Saugus High senior came through with four seconds to play in triple overtime to lead his team to a 70-68 come-from-behind victory over Golden League rival Ridgecrest Burroughs. There was reason to celebrate. Clark's season-high 14 points helped Saugus snap Burroughs' six-year, 40-game home winning streak.

John Henrik Clarke never got around to writing his life story, which encompassed some of the more turbulent periods in American history. But time will not forget the former history professor who died at the age of 83 Thursday at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital in New York City after a heart attack. A pioneer in urging African and African American studies at Hunter College, where he taught from 1968 to 1985, he developed most of the department's curriculum.

Clark entered the season still dealing with the pain of a personal tragedy: His 22-year-old son Jackson, a former Saugus player, died of cancer in October. Nonetheless, Clark led Saugus to a 18-9 record despite the fact that he dismissed senior forward Chris Hernandez late in the season.
