The Jerry Payne who wrote that beautiful article in the Travel Section should at least do a travel book. I read all of Henry David Thoreau's books, even his fiction, and I may be personally prejudiced, but Payne has far more talent and a far greater flair for human interest. Such talent should be used.

Former MGM executive Lindsley Parsons, Jr. is expected to be named interim president of the Entertainment Industry Development Corp. when its executive committee meets Monday, according to several sources. Plans reportedly call for Parsons, 72, to serve the agency, which issues film permits, for only six months. He will not be eligible for the permanent position to replace former President Cody Cluff, who resigned in the midst of an investigation into whether he misused corporate funds.

Mark Mandala said he will retire as president of the ABC Television Network effective May 1. Mandala became president in January, 1986, as part of a restructuring by parent Capital Cities/ABC. In a statement, Mandala, 56, said, "The timing was right, financially and functionally, to leave Capital Cities/ABC after nearly 32 years." In his job Mandala was in charge of such areas as affiliate relations, sales and network operations.

Amid heightened concerns about terrorism, it's business as usual in Hollywood . . . almost. Although Tri-Star is going ahead with filming on "City of Joy" in India this weekend and Fox has already started production on "Alien 3" in London, at least one other overseas production, Fox's "Naked Lunch," is being rerouted from its original shoot in Tangiers. Others could follow if the war worsens, studio executives say.

Was it only a few years ago that John Travolta was a '70s movie sensation, an urban youth movie sex-idol who seemed to blend Brando's brooding with Presley's swagger? In "Shout" (citywide), looking a bit fleshy and tired, Travolta is already trying to pass the torch. But there's nobody to pick it up--at least in this witless, over-pretty dud of a youth musical.

From its first words on screen right through its closing scene, "Sneakers" (citywide) is programmed for playfulness. A confident caper movie with a most pleasant sense of humor, it goes about its business in such a good-spirited way that it manages to make its familiar "Mission: Impossible" plot seem good as new.

Vietnam is leaving Valencia. Indian Dunes, the popular 200-acre movie and television location just north of Six Flags Magic Mountain, will turn from filming into farming by the end of the year. From stargazing to cattle grazing. From sets for "China Beach" and "Call to Glory" to land for barley and broccoli.

While Michael Segal is hardly a household name outside Hollywood or even a recognized face on La Croisette, his 5-year-old completion bond company is playing an increasingly integral role in how the major studios are structuring many of their big-budget movie deals.
