The parrot wasn't talking. "I'm teaching her to say, 'I miss Mace,"' said Mace Neufeld, who at 85 reckons the bird, whose name is Margie, will outlast him. With no words of affection forthcoming, Neufeld, a New Yorker who landed in Beverly Hills back when you could grab a sandwich at the Ontra Cafeteria and rent a house with a pool for $300 a month, headed toward the sitting room. He once wrote music for Dorothy Loudon, managed Dusty Springfield, produced "The Omen. " But Neufeld moves with the fervor of a man less concerned with his legacy than the spread sheet of his latest film.

It's been three years since Tom Clancy's debut novel, "The Hunt for Red October," found the best-seller list. But the submarine thriller, being produced as a feature film by Mace Neufeld for Paramount, won't be surfacing soon. Neufeld will only say that it's still in development. We reached Clancy at his Maryland home, where he's polishing up his fourth novel, "The Cardinal of the Kremlin"--due out next summer from Putnam, about "FBI covert operations and all those neat fun things."

It wasn't post-production problems but the current glut of action movies that caused Paramount Pictures to pull "Flight of the Intruder" from the summer release schedule, says producer Mace Neufeld. "I agreed with (the studio) that it was wrong to throw it into the middle of all those hardware films," says Neufeld, "especially since our movie is character-oriented."

As the title of their latest hit film indicates, producers Mace Neufeld and Robert Rehme are familiar with the clear and present dangers involved in making techno-action movies. There was the rebellion in southern Mexico that nearly cost them the right to film special-effects explosives scenes in that country, which they used as a double for Colombia.
