You may remember her as Mama Romano on the TV sitcom "One Day at a Time" or as Sid Caesar's comic foil or as the Broadway star of any number of '40s musicals, from "High Button Shoes" to "Love Life." But Nanette Fabray likes to think of herself simply as a hoofer. "My first preference, since you ask, is that I'm a tap dancer," she said. "I really feel that way. I still tap dance. You have to think to do it."

THE 41st edition of Cinecon, the Labor Day weekend convention of the Society of Cinephiles, showcases vintage cinema today through Monday at the Egyptian. As always, the schedule is studded with rarities and rediscoveries -- there will be 23 features plus numerous shorts -- many of them restored and preserved by the society. This year's guests, each of whom will appear with one of their films, are Patricia Neal, Diane Baker, Nanette Fabray and director Delbert Mann.

In her article on Steve Martin playing Sgt. Bilko ("A Wild and Crazy Sarge," Aug. 27), Kristine McKenna states that playing the same role made Phil Silvers "a star" in the '50s. Perhaps it made him a household word, but--never even having been a fan of his comic style--I know Silvers became a star in 1947 when he opened on Broadway in "High Button Shoes" with Nanette Fabray. He also co-starred with the likes of Rita Hayworth, Gene Kelly, Betty Grable, Carmen Miranda and John Payne in Hollywood musicals that were enormous hits, pre-Bilko.

While I was glad to see Daryl H. Miller's positive review of that old Broadway chestnut, "High Button Shoes" ("'High Button Shoes' Still Provides Delight," May 27), I felt dismay that he listed practically everyone associated with the Broadway production of 1947, including (in order of their mention) Jerome Robbins, George Abbott, Jule Styne, Sammy Cahn and Phil Silvers, but no mention of the librettist, Stephen Longstreet, nor Silvers' co-star, Nanette Fabray. Fabray is still with us, so she can speak for herself at the oversight.

That's the secret to longevity, explains actress Nanette Fabray, who is starring in the West Coast premiere of "Club of Hearts," a comedy about three widows getting on with their lives, playing in La Mirada. Fabray, 70, embarked on her stage, movie and television career at age 3 with a tap-dance routine at Los Angeles' Million Dollar Theater. During six decades, she has earned Emmy and Tony awards and starred on several television programs.

Early in "No, No, Nanette," the title character is warned to avoid flappers "who think life is one long giggle." * Those flapper girls have nothing on "No, No, Nanette," the 1920s musical so light and frothy it makes "42nd Street" look like Greek tragedy. High kicks and soft-shoe, lame jokes and "Tea for Two"--these foolish things have sustained Vincent Youmans' three-act lollipop, off and on, for 70 years.
