Loretta Swit and Harry Hamlin, who played to many millions of weekly television viewers when they were Maj. Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan in “MASH on CBS and attorney Michael “Mickey” Kuzak in NBC's “L.A. Law,” will share a small-theater stage in North Hollywood starting next month in the premiere of “One November Yankee,” a two-actor play written and directed by Joshua Ravetch. The two will begin the play, which opens Nov. 16 in a production by the NoHo Arts Center Ensemble, as a brother and sister who survive the crash of a single-engine airplane.

The easy assumption to make is that they have settled for local theater after years on Emmy Award-winning television. But that's not the way Harry Hamlin sees it. Hamlin - who gained fame as hunky lawyer Michael Kuzak on "L.A.

Dear Reader, I have not interviewed Loretta Swit. In the process, I have struck a blow for freedom of the press. Loretta Swit feels "abused by the press," according to a spokesman for the Theater Guild in New York, which is producing her one-woman touring show, "Shirley Valentine." It's at the Plummer Auditorium in Fullerton tonight. If I wanted to interview her, the spokesman said, I would have to sign a written agreement promising not to abuse her.

Scene: The Festival Amphitheatre in Garden Grove on Monday night, after three-plus hours of uneven performances by celebrities at a GroveShakespeare fund-raiser that paid tribute to the late Joseph Papp. "Joe Papp, we love you. We love you so much we actually showed up here to listen to everybody tell us how much they loved you." "Joe who?" "You know. The guy from New York who loved Shakespeare and Sally Kirkland."

It sure has been a terrifying two weeks, with a dark-haired Elizabeth Montgomery causing havoc in "Sins of the Mother" (Feb. 19, CBS), and a dark-haired Loretta Swit terrorizing Barbara Eden in "Hell Hath No Fury" (March 4, NBC). How can anyone get any sleep around here? And to think they were so nice as blondes. Michael Devine, Hollywood

It's a long way from the American West to West Hollywood--but when the two did meet, it was instant chic, sudden awareness and almost immediate gratification. All of that--and more--as the 3-month-old Los Angeles chapter of the Wild Horse Sanctuary held an overflow luncheon at open-for-the-occasion Spago on Friday. It was not an afternoon for easy eating or leisurely chatting.

This past summer saw the National Audubon Society sell conservation to America through a series of special television documentaries on PBS. Robert Redford narrated the sad but not yet hopeless story of the California condor; Dennis Weaver told of building common ground between farming and wildlife; Loretta Swit described the efforts to preserve panthers and cheetahs. This fall, the series will continue on Turner Broadcasting's WTBS.
