There's Lenny Weinrib, a love-muddled sportswriter character written by Woody Allen, played by Woody Allen in his new film, "Mighty Aphrodite." Then there's Lennie Weinrib, a rising Hollywood writer-actor-comedian in the mid-'60s who's dropped out of view in recent years. Through his publicist, Allen says he'd never heard of Lennie-with-an-ie Weinrib and calls the whole thing a coincidence. But the name will ring a bell with many Hollywood veterans.

The piece on Lennie Weinrib by Kevin Thomas (Nov. 24) was first-rate and warmly nostalgic. Before the Billy Barnes Revue was a long-running hit at the Las Palmas Theatre in Hollywood and a not-successful show off-Broadway (the square New Yorkers couldn't relate to the hip), Barnes, lyricist Bob Rodgers and the original cast performed in what was an upholstered basement on Sunset Boulevard east of Vermont known as Cabaret Concertheater. I recall with much pleasure sitting there for hours with a bottle of wine, cheese and crackers and being entertained by the likes of Joyce Jameson, Ken Barry, Bob Dishy and many others who went on to individual stardom.

It's late at night. Your dog wants a walk. You're passing through the lobby of your apartment building when a voice calls out, "Psst, come over here. I wanna talk to you." Not to worry. It's only Vidi the robot. All he wants to do is rent you a video. To accomplish that, he'll dish out a little Hollywood gossip, crack a joke, show you a scene or two from a movie you're considering and maybe even tell you about the film maker. All this happens before you decide whether to rent the video, at the standard price of a dollar or two. Though the robot will tell you it likes to be called Vidi, its full name is Vidirobot 2001.
