Gloria (Rosebud) Vasquez snapped on rubber gloves and happily poured peroxide on the dark blond hair of a male customer who wanted it "white on top," a request that she did not find bizarre. She had worked on his head only recently; one side looked buzzed and was still imprinted with decorative lines etched in the style of rap singer M.C. Hammer. "Does it burn yet? How white do you want it, falling-out white?" she asked in her booth at The Barbers in Artesia one afternoon last week.

WE'RE all used to the Oscar night acceptance speeches: 45 seconds of blather thanking everyone in sight before the orchestra kicks in telling the winner to get off stage. Wouldn't we all like to know what's really going on inside their heads? Are they thinking of how far they have come since growing up on an Iowa farm with no running water? Or maybe dredging up painful memories of having to live without a personal assistant while playing a "Star Trek" extra?

Regarding your June 30 review of the Orson Welles biography, "Rosebud: The Story of Orson Welles" by David Thomson: At the beginning of "Citizen Kane" someone suggested that "Rosebud" might have been the name of a horse Kane bet on. The film would have been much shorter if someone else had reminded them that the winner of the Kentucky Derby of 1914 was a horse named "Old Rosebud." WALTER J. FRISCH SEAL BEACH

Only one movie star mattered to Bob Board when he was growing up in Long Beach during the 1930s, and that was Marion Davies. "My parents didn't approve of her at all," he remembers with a laugh. "They said, 'Oh, she lives with this old man who is married and has children, and they live in a castle by the beach up north.' I thought, 'Ooohh, this does sound like an interesting person.'

"Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn" is a horror movie. The movie rating system is a horror story. How the De Laurentiis Entertainment Group managed to avoid the rating horror and get its horror movie into 340 American theaters today is more like a mystery. "Evil Dead 2," a movie that one DEG insider said was "so grisly you have to see it to believe it," was financed by DEG and, until recently, was scheduled for American release by DEG.

The golden retriever found wandering around the Rose Parade route on New Year's Day wearing only a red bandanna and dog license No. 175 from "Parksville" may be one step closer to home today. Puzzled county animal care officials, who have pampered the dog they nicknamed "Rosebud" after a South Pasadena resident turned it over to them, at first couldn't track down his license number in any of the half-dozen U.S. towns named Parksville.

Easterners phone his Santa Monica store and order clothes they've never even seen. "Send me everything Sinjin wears." That's the way they order. They're talking about Sinjin Smith--"King of the Beach"--a tall, tan, 30-year-old volleyball star who earned his title on sandy courts across America. He and his brother Andrew and sisters Rosebud and Georgiana opened a store nine months ago called Smithers, a family nickname. It's become part volleyball hero's shrine, part sports news central.

Some movies tell you stories. And some movies tell you they're going to tell you a story before they tell it. It's called framing a story, or in movie terms, a wraparound--a plot device that bookends the body of a movie story with what seems to be another story entirely. It's been around as long as movies have, and yet it remains a popular storytelling tool, particularly in movie biographies and mysteries.

David Thomson makes a point of telling us he's nobody's fool in "Rosebud," least of all Orson Welles'. Despite "a life passed in awe" of the Great Man, his paradoxical demolition of his former idol is proof that a disillusioned idolater can make a sympathetic, if self-absorbed, biographer. "Rosebud" bursts with compassion for the ambitious, self-destructive Welles, "who could not make a movie, or speak for more than a few minutes, without polishing his own legend."

Rosebud, infamous home of blueberry fettuccine, perhaps the single most ghastly plate of food I have ever found, is now a memory. Rosebud's old location in Larchmont Village is now the modest Cafe Pierrot. There's a new owner, a new menu, a new chef . . . believe me, I made certain of this before I set foot in the door. There's nothing too fancy in this tidy, narrow room, including the prices. Cafe Pierrot seeks to fill the neighborhood's need for a small, reasonable French restaurant.

Rosebud, a young mixed golden retriever found wandering in South Pasadena on New Year's Day, presumably will be reunited with an owner or owners this morning--but it won't have been easy. It is to be hoped he appreciates all the trouble everybody has gone to. As it turns out, his name is really Hobo, which he probably likes better than Rosebud, of all things. It also turns out that more than one owner may show up to claim him.
