From the moment Dan Quayle was picked by George Bush last month, comparisons between the young, blond Indiana senator and actor Robert Redford made the presidential campaign suddenly sound like a casting call. In his quest for the vice presidency, some Republican pros stated, Quayle would certainly be a big hit with women, a bridge over the so-called gender gap. "He runs well in Indiana among women," a male Indiana delegate said. But is it true? Do looks make a candidate?

Ryatt Redford is not related to that other Redford, Robert--movie star, social activist, sex object. But Ryatt has his own ambitious streak. Not even 2 years old, the red-and-white tabby landed a bit role in a television comedy special, starring Paula Poundstone, which may be on cable TV next year. Ryatt is a graduate of College for Cats, a weekly acting class in Van Nuys for felines, which was the subject of an article in May.

"I put the hat on and I looked in a three-way mirror and it was really weird," Robert Stack was saying. "It was like I had put the tape on fast reverse, but the guy who looked back at me was a guy I didn't know. It certainly didn't look like the guy from 30 years ago." The man in the mirror was none other than Eliot Ness, the G-Man extraordinaire who played a crucial part in ending the reign of gangster Al Capone in Chicago in the early 1930s.

The Western Shoshone Indian sisters Carrie and Mary Dann have the kind of unadorned, from-the-heart directness that puts the high-flying rhetoric of most political activists to shame. In the Joel Freedman documentary "To Protect Mother Earth," they speak out for the rights of the Western Shoshone to hunt and ranch on the 24 million acres in Nevada that the Shoshone Nation has occupied since before Columbus and which the U.S. government now claims for its own.

If it looks like a movie set, don't be surprised. Thousand Palms Oasis was the setting for Cecil B. DeMille's 1924 silent film epic "King of Kings," and the 1969 movie "Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here," starring Robert Redford, Robert Blake and Katharine Ross. The oasis is something special and deserving of protection, but that's not why the Coachella Valley Preserve was established. The reserve's raison d'etre is habitat for the threatened Coachella Valley fringe-toed lizard.

What was it like to be a pioneer in the Southwest more than a century ago? You can get an idea by traveling in a covered wagon across the desert that is now part of the Coachella Valley Preserve, where the scenery hasn't changed since the days of the settlers. You'll be spared a body-jolting ride, however, thanks to the wagon's rubber tires and padded seats. More true to history is the pair of mules, not horses, that pull the wagon. Handling the reins is mule skinner Neil Fawcett.
