Naked Woman

ENTERTAINMENT
March 24, 1991 | JEAN ROSENBLUTH
Great White's seventh and dumbest album provokes an array of involuntary reactions, from the grimace upon viewing the inside cover illustration of a naked woman straddling a fish hook to eye-rolling at profundities such as "Roller girls ain't no teases / I know she'll do just what she pleases for me." But the most insidious thing about the record is how it brings on uncontrollable foot tapping. Even the most intractable hater of dumb-rock would be hard-pressed to deny the p-a-a-a-r-t-y!

Authorities in the art world cast doubt on the authenticity of an alleged Picasso painting that was seized by Iraqi police south of Baghdad. "The Naked Woman," which police claimed was painted by Picasso, was seized near the southern city of Hillah on Tuesday after a man allegedly tried to sell it for $450,000. Iraqi police said the painting appeared to have been stolen from Kuwait after Saddam Hussein's 1990 invasion. But the painting has a tag on the back with several misspellings that says it was sold by "the louvre" to "the museum of kuwait," with the words Louvre and Kuwait in lower case.

Authorities banned an issue of Newsweek magazine for publishing material they said was offensive to Islam, local media reported Friday. A government official in Islamabad ordered the "forfeiture of all copies of the weekly Newsweek of Nov. 22," the state-run agency Associated Press of Pakistan reported, quoting Tariq Mahmood Bajwa, a government official in the capital. The edition published "objectionable remarks ... tantamount to desecration of the Koran," the agency said.

A quick scan of any greeting card aisle will tell you that almost nothing says love faster than the red rose. And marketers behind two romantic films this season have taken the rose motif and run with it. The poster for the just-released "Love in the Time of Cholera" features a large, single red rose hanging against a stark, black background. A small stream of carefully placed dewdrops (or are they teardrops?) falls onto a rose petal that discreetly covers a naked woman's back.

Has Davy Crockett changed between 1955 and 1988? I can't recall Davy eyeing a beautiful young woman (Cheryl Arutt) skinny-dipping in the original 1954-55 shows, as he does in the two-hour "Rainbow in the Thunder," the first of five new "Davy Crockett" episodes that will appear on "The Magical World of Disney" this season (Sunday at 7 p.m., Channels 4, 36 and 39). Still, the new Davy (Tim Dunigan) doesn't forget about his unseen wife and kids.

In 1863, Edouard Manet shocked his Parisian audience by painting a naked woman boldly staring out of a picture while sitting on the grass with fully clothed men. The provocative subject matter and loose brushwork were far too modern for the conservative tastes of the time.

Mixing comedy, confession and music, funnyman actor Andy Dick played his life for laughs Tuesday at the Key Club, where he has a weekly residency. His rambling, 90-minute program was less a music concert than a theatrical work-in-progress, complete with a semi-naked woman, a barefoot guitarist and his former "NewsRadio" co-star Vicki Lewis as a singing angel. When a show begins (and ends) with a very large man upchucking on the star, you know it's not strictly about the music.
