Fury, thy name was George Bernard Shaw when even the idea of "Pygmalion" as a musical came up. "I absolutely forbid any such outrage," he wrote of the proposed blasphemy, noting that his play already was lush with "its own verbal music." Shaw's protests eventually were drowned out and, as everybody knows, "Pygmalion" did become a musical, and a very good and popular one at that.

A divided Los Angeles City Council voted Friday to pay fired police Sgt. Roger M. "Hoot" Gibson the rest of the $631,000 he is owed from a years-old legal settlement approved by a federal judge. Lawmakers had balked this week on following the judge's order, noting that Gibson was fired 14 years ago for insubordination and accused of everything from having sex on his shift to running a burglary ring of cops.

The City Council on Monday formally approved a $41-million budget for the 1986-87 fiscal year and reduced the utility users tax from 11% to 9.5%. The budget, submitted May 12, includes $320,000 in increased permits and other fees that officials said would allow the city to rely less on tax revenue. Fees charged for fire inspections, taxi driver applications and various building and safety requirements will go up. Officials said the increases will affect mostly developers and non-residents.

Producers of "Rocky" films lost by a decision Monday when the Culver City Council voted 4 to 1 against renaming a street after the popular movie character. Chartoff-Winkler Productions, Inc. of Culver City had asked the city to change the name of Jean Place--where its offices are located--to Rocky Place. The company hoped the city would approve the change because all four "Rocky" movies, which have grossed more than $500 million, were filmed in Culver City.

Mayor Chris Norby, the highest vote-getter in last month's City Council election, gets to keep his gavel one more year. And his voting for himself helped him keep the job. Norby is the first council member in 15 years to be chosen by his colleagues to serve as mayor for a second consecutive year. The late Wayne Bornhoft was the last to do so. Norby, 47, was selected over Councilwoman Jan M. Flory on a 3-2 vote.

"Voyage of the Heart" (at the AFI USA Independent Showcase at Laemmle's Monica 4-Plex in Santa Monica) is so amateurish that it makes its potentially touching story ring false at every turn, thanks to inept acting, writing and direction. Writer Geoffrey Francis Dunn lacks the skill and experience to effectively develop what is a good story idea. A pretty college student on a research project meets a rugged, 60-plus Monterey Bay fisherman and they fall in love.
