The scene is being shot in a splendid, eccentric, high-rise office filled with antique hobby horses, Tiffany lamps and bowls of roses, with expansive windows looking down on Times Square. Faye Dunaway and Nastassja Kinski confront each other over the affections of Rutger Hauer with a passion worthy of many intense romantic triangles committed to film.

He was escorted on the arm of his daughter, supported at the end of a cane, carried by the cheers of thousands. Only once Saturday did the 93-year-old guest of honor stand on his own. It was when the Pauley Pavilion announcer collectively introduced his dozens of former players. From across the court, John Wooden suddenly rose to face them. Stooped, but standing. Unsteady, but certain.

Jean Smart--the star who left "Designing Women" to expand as an actress--is, to her immense credit, becoming impossible to pigeonhole. Only a month ago she was chilling as a savage serial killer in the TV movie "Overkill," and tonight she's a sweet, drawling, prim North Carolina schoolteacher thrust into the arms of a rock 'n' roll mega-star in "Just My Imagination" (at 9 p.m. on NBC, Channels 4, 36 and 39).

The complexities that attended writer Christopher Isherwood and artist Don Bachardy's early romance aren't hard to grasp. There was the three-decade age difference, Isherwood being 49 when he met the 18-year-old Bachardy on a Santa Monica beach in 1953.

The Scene: Wednesday's premiere of Warner Bros. and Morgan Creek's "True Romance" at Mann's Chinese Theater. The movie has been dubbed "a '90s 'Bonnie and Clyde.' " To call the film violent would be an understatement. Agents attacking each other over a deal point would be tame compared to this. "It's a film that's full of surprises," said director Tony Scott. "And the real surprise, considering how much violence there is, is how much humor it has."

Age hasn't blunted the edgy impact of "Jerker," the fiercely homoerotic one-act by the late Robert Chesley that in 1986 provoked a push for more restrictive censorship. The touring revival from Call Box Productions, currently cruising Highways, boasts enough nudity and frank sexuality to hold its own against any play in a subsequent decade of envelope-pushing gay theater.
