Gregg Allman's paid a lot of dues, but this may have been asking too much. There he was one morning, tied to the video equivalent of a whipping post--"Live With Regis and Kathie Lee"--and invited, with five minutes left to the show, to sing the Allman Brothers' chestnut "Melissa" for probably the 10-millionth time. And then cut off before the second verse by credits and a voice-over. And let's add insult to injury: Back at his hotel, snide comments were running as thick as the free coffee.

In the mad holiday rush for prime family film release dates, Disney--the studio known for having a lock on Thanksgiving--is the one now juggling dates. Disney's computer-animated movie "A Bug's Life" has been caught between a rock and a hard place, or in this case a pig and a Rugrat. The film was scheduled to open Nov. 20 against Paramount's "Rugrats," the film version of the hit Nickelodeon television children's series. Late Wednesday, Disney bumped its debut to Nov.

November? Must be Miller time--Warren Miller time, that is. Yep, the annual ritual is here. While most moviegoers settle back in the darkness, shushing their neighbors so they can enjoy some Hollywood-produced Oscar contender, somewhere across town Warren Miller fans take their seats and start screaming. And pounding the floor. And talking back to the screen: "Awesome," "Wow, cool," " Arrrrrright !" Or laughing.

Twentieth Century Fox's last-minute decision to delay the release of "Great Expectations" has cost the modern Dickens adaptation a prime holiday slot, as well as 1997 awards consideration, but may boost its box-office hopes. The romantic drama, directed by Alfonso Cuaron ("A Little Princess") and starring Ethan Hawke, Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert De Niro, had been scheduled for a two-city, two-theater run starting Dec. 31. Now it will open Jan.

Flames flicker across the screen, then a mushroom cloud. "No one gets to read the story of his own death," a narrator intones in the stillness of an ornate reception room in the Russian Embassy, four blocks from the White House in Washington.

WHO says there are too many sequels? Certainly not the movie studios. In addition to new installments in the "Spider-Man," "Shrek" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" series, at least four other movie franchises will offer up third episodes this summer. The highest-profile entries are George Clooney in "Ocean's 13" (June 8), Matt Damon in "The Bourne Ultimatum" (Aug. 3) and "Rush Hour 3" (Aug. 10), the first starring role for Chris Tucker since the last "Rush Hour" movie came out six years ago.

FOR most of us, a rough day on the job might mean getting chewed out by the boss, but does it include falling off a horse? Or jumping off a building? Or taking a rubber bullet in the gut? Nope, didn't think so. Those are just a few of the assignments stuntman Bobby Hoy endured over the 50-plus years he was in the business, working on Blake Edwards films and dozens of TV shows.

We confess a twinge of nostalgia on learning that the Winnetka 6 Drive-In could go the way of cheap gasoline, tail fins and all flesh: Pacific Theatres has announced it will replace this icon of the auto age with a 26-screen megaplex with shops and restaurants. We'd barely digested that news when Northridge Fashion Center announced plans for a competing entertainment complex, with multiple movie screens and other enticements.

How's this for a game plan? Let director Duwayne Dunham coach Warner Bros.' peewee football movie, "Little Giants," until the last 3 1/2 weeks of shooting and then bring aboard another director to drive the movie home. It's very rare that a director is ever pulled off a picture this late in the game. But for the movie, which was behind schedule, to be finished for its Oct. 14 release, the move was a necessary one, say sources involved with the film.
