Fay Wray, well remembered as the beauty who killed the beast in the 1933 classic "King Kong," will be making a personal appearance at the May 12 screening of Gregory La Cava's "The Affairs of Cellini" at the Los Angeles County Art Museum.' "It's a pretty good film," says Wray, a wry, spry, 93. "I do have fond memories of it. I think it was shown at Grauman's Chinese and somehow, that seemed like a kudo for all of us who were in it.

Director Gregory La Cava isn't widely remembered these days, but in the mid-1930s he was one of the most in-demand directors in Hollywood--and one of the highest paid. In fact, when he directed Carole Lombard and William Powell in the screwball comedy classic "My Man Godfrey" in 1936 it was La Cava, not his high-profile stars, who pulled down the highest salary.

The big dollars that arts, medical and charitable organizations raise don't just arrive in a basket with a bow on the doorstep. Rather, they come from the extraordinary generosity of Angelenos via benefits and people brave enough to ask others to part with their money. It's been good recently. A $1 million gift from the S. Mark Taper Foundation has established the S. Mark Taper Foundation Pediatric Critical Care Center in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Victor J. Hammer, an art dealer who with his brothers Armand and Harry founded the internationally recognized Hammer Galleries in New York City in the 1920s, has died in Lake Worth, Fla., near his Palm Beach home. He was 83 and died Sunday of heart disease. Dr. Armand Hammer, now chairman of Occidental Petroleum Corp., established the gallery with his brothers after his business affiliations with the then-infant Soviet government enabled him to purchase art treasures at a favorable rate.

I cannot always correctly spell or pronounce half the artists whose works I have enjoyed for many years. Not being an art intellectual has not deterred me from emotionally experiencing the excitement and beauty of famous paintings. I have been in much larger crowds in art galleries in San Francisco, Paris (I did think of Van Gogh's ear) Madrid, Rome and Florence than the crowd experienced by Tuck at our Los Angeles County Art Museum. I was grateful to be among the relatively few people in the United States to attend the Impressionist to Early Modern Paintings from the U.S.S.

The story about (Macy subsidiary) Bullock's uncertain future (front page, Jan. 28) contained one glaring error to a native Angeleno. The Art-Deco Bullock's Wilshire (now an I. Magnin) is not on the Miracle Mile. The Miracle Mile is (or was, depending on if it is still called that) the area of Wilshire Boulevard bounded by La Brea on the east and Fairfax to the west. In its youth, it contained the El Rey movie theater, which is now a Russian restaurant; family restaurants such as Van de Kamp's, Tilford's, the Ontra Cafeteria and Dupars; quality stores, including the multistoried Coulter's department store (which later became a Broadway)

Re "$1.2-Billion Downtown L.A. Project Draws Top Architects," Dec. 24: The new Walt Disney Concert Hall is Los Angeles' finest sculpture, and the surrounding gardens provide a contemplative viewpoint. Now the plans for an adjoining development could make Grand Avenue the focal point the city has always lacked. If the new area is done with the level of artistry that architect Frank Gehry displayed with Disney Hall, Los Angeles will be a more complete city, and very, very proud. Bill Mead Oak View, Calif.

Isn't it ironic that Armand Hammer withdrew his art collection from the Los Angeles County Art Museum in a move apparently driven by ego, and in so doing set himself for the most unfavorable and ultimately ego-shattering comparisons ("The March to Boutique Museums," by William Wilson, Jan. 22)? J. Paul Getty, the world's richest man, left an endowment of a couple of billion dollars for an art museum to be constructed on 450 acres in Brentwood. Armand Hammer, somewhere in the bottom half of Forbes 400 richest Americans, is renting a corner in Westwood for his collection worth a couple hundred million.
