Imagine that a social anthropologist from another galaxy drops into the middle of Mardi Gras, the Miss Texas beauty pageant or a 25th high-school reunion in Elmhurst, Ill., and is barraged with uniquely American sights and sounds. What would he make of us? That is the perspective on American events and rituals Mark Frost hopes to present in Fox's new documentary series, "American Chronicles."

For a while, fans of the quirky but ill-fated TV series "Twin Peaks" believed they'd have one last taste of the town's famous cherry pie, coffee and inbred relationships, in the form of a big-screen movie version. That was the hope, at least, after ABC-TV canceled the prime-time soap opera in May. But on Thursday, creators David Lynch, Mark Frost and their Lynch/Frost Prods. said that the movie version is off.

The distance between the real town of Taborton in Upstate New York and the television town of Twin Peaks in the Pacific Northwest can't be measured in miles. But it can be measured in terms of the imagination of Mark Frost. Frost, David Lynch's collaborator on the twisted and moody ABC soap opera, "Twin Peaks," spent his summers at his family's vacation home in Taborton when he was growing up.

The Union Label: Crew members on "Twin Peaks" are working under a union contract for the first time starting this week, as a newly negotiated agreement with the International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees begins to take effect. The contract, which covers make-up artists, photographers, film editors and stagehands, was negotiated just hours before the union was to have struck the set of "Twin Peaks," as well as ABC television offices in Los Angeles and New York.

What would seem an idea right out of "Mission Impossible"--a one-hour recapitulation of last season's many plot twists on "Twin Peaks"--has been canceled, ABC said Thursday. ABC originally planned to air on Sept. 29 a show that would have recapped important points in the surreal saga of sex, murder and doughnuts in a small logging hamlet in Washington state. The series now is in summer repeats.

Whether the suit continues is now in ABC's hands.
