There are plenty of cautionary tales in the Hollywood chronicles: careers that rose and fell like rockets, careers that never quite got going, careers cut short by mischance. Few stories have seemed to me more bitterly sad than Jean Seberg's. The robust and beautiful young woman from Marshalltown, Iowa, had won an audition to be Otto Preminger's Joan of Arc in "Saint Joan," and you would have said, as the press releases did, that it was an updated Cinderella story.

A newly reconstituted state judicial watchdog panel--now dominated by Democrats--has taken the first step toward dismissing misconduct charges against an appeals court judge accused of flouting the law in a court dissent. California Court of Appeal Justice J. Anthony Kline, appointed to the bench by then-Gov. Edmund G. "Jerry" Brown Jr., was charged last year with misconduct for writing in a dissent that he would not follow a controversial California Supreme Court ruling.

"Born on the Fourth of July," "Glory," and "When Harry Met Sally" --with five nominations each--were the clear favorites this year among the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., which announced the nominees for its annual Golden Globe Awards Wednesday morning in Beverly Hills. Following close behind with four nominations each were 'Dead Poets Society," "Do the Right Thing" (tapped by the L.A. Film Critics as the year's best picture), and Disney's animated fairy tale, "The Little Mermaid."

These are some of the changes that producers have made in returning prime-time series. Secrecy surrounds some of the season-opening scenarios, such as the fate of Pam Ewing on "Dallas," who was last seen in a fiery car crash.
