Lyle Waggoner--Hollywood actor--has more of a ring to it than Lyle Waggoner--builder of makeup and wardrobe trailers for the movie industry. But for Waggoner, who spent eight years on "The Carol Burnett Show," trading in stardust for sawdust has meant more financial stability than he ever knew in the film industry. Waggoner's 13-year-old business, Star Waggons in Sylmar, leases custom-made trailers and motor homes to movie studios and television production companies for location work.

Talk about a show biz twist. . . . A crew member who once worked with best-actress nominee Sally Kirkland relates: Back in the fall of 1981, Kirkland was set to be the leading lady in "Gypsy Angels." Described as "a barnstorming love story," it was all about a pilot who travels the country--doing air shows and crop dusting--who falls in love with a woman who's a former topless dancer. But Kirkland never went before the cameras.

A feature film about a heterosexual doctor who re-examines his life after he tests positive for AIDS--filmed in Orange County, financed by an Orange County doctor and directed by a graduate of Orange Coast College--will, fittingly enough, have its premiere in the county. The producers of "A Different Life" are still looking for a distributor, but in the meantime they have booked the film into the Valley View Twin Cinemas in Garden Grove for a one-week run, today through Thursday.

You turn on the TV, and there's Ali MacGraw or Meredith Baxter Birney, talking in their best close-personal-friend voices about makeup tips. But they're not just suggesting that smoky topaz eye shadow, they're selling it. Welcome to the world of infomercials. Thanks to Federal Communications Commission deregulation, those 30-minute spots that look like talk shows but are really commercials for things such as makeup and cookie diets now appear on 2,000 TV stations.
