SANTA FE, N. M. -- President Bush calls him Rolando. He's a liberal Democrat from New York and a movie financier, and he was a fraternity brother of Bush's during their days at Yale. Roland W. Betts is playing host to Bush and his wife, Laura, this weekend at his home in the rolling hills northwest of Santa Fe. Betts lives in New York City.

Whitehead, the development corporation's chairman.

Betts offered to put together a limited partnership that would infuse HBO with $75 million in funds with which the voracious cable giant could shake and bake its own movies. Eventually, this money would have to be paid back, Betts said, but not for five years. Five years!
