Robert Conrad

"Glory Days," airing at 9 p.m. Sunday on CBS (Channels 2 and 8), is a daydream that tries to be a movie--and fails. The underlying fantasy has universal appeal. After reveling in the huge football success of his talented high school senior son, 53-year-old retiree Mike Moran (Robert Conrad) achieves his own ambition by becoming a star quarterback in the small college ranks.

Paul Conrad, whose fiercely confrontational editorial cartoons made him one of the leading political provocateurs of the second half of the 20th century and who helped push the Los Angeles Times to national prominence, has died. He was 86. Conrad died early Saturday of natural causes, surrounded by his family at his home in Rancho Palos Verdes, said his son David. With an unyielding liberal stance rendered in savage black and white, Conrad both thrilled and infuriated readers for more than 50 years.

Somehow singer-actress Connie Stevens didn't get the memo that film directing is considered a young man's game. Sure, there are plenty of filmmakers over age 60 who are working, including Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Clint Eastwood, who is turning 81 in May.

Earlier this year, a little trifle called "Extreme" came and went on the ABC schedule without anyone seeming to notice. It starred James Brolin as the leader of a rescue team of sexy young hotheads in a ski resort town. Now, NBC is uncorking "High Sierra Search and Rescue" on Sunday. There are only three differences between this and "Extreme": no snow, a more cumbersome title and Robert Conrad as its star (although, technically, that may not really qualify as a difference).

An employee in a Paramount city building gazed out his window and spotted two men breaking into a car across the street. Two detectives arrived promptly and arrested the alleged crooks. The latter demanded to know who had snitched on them, according to City Talk, Paramount's newsletter.
