Russ Tamblyn and Richard Beymer are sitting around a set for the ABC series "Twin Peaks," discussing their current work on the David Lynch/Mark Frost production and looking back at their co-starring roles as Riff and Tony in the 1961 film classic "West Side Story."

When moviemakers wanted to film "Peyton Place" in this small seaside town, the bestselling novel the movie was to be based on was so scandalous that the local library didn't even keep it on its shelves. The book had sparked outrage with its titillating look behind closed doors in a proper New England town. People read it in secret, and it was banned from many schools But that didn't keep Camden from welcoming 20th Century Fox to turn its streets, homes and people into "Peyton Place."

Is it possible to scare the holy geebees out of someone without the use of elaborate special effects, fake decapitations and gallons of make-believe blood? It is, and it's called "The Haunting." This black-and-white gem, based on the late Shirley Jackson's best-selling novel, "The Haunting of Hill House," just may be the best supernatural movie ever made. You never even see the malevolent spirits.

What could be more timely than "Running Mates," a light, blithe, romantic comedy with serious undertones, in which a presidential candidate's fiancee becomes the source of a scandal just as he's entering the homestretch of a heretofore effective campaign? With Diane Keaton as the fiancee and Ed Harris as the senator who would appear to have the White House within his grasp, the film (at 8 p.m. Sunday on HBO) sparkles like a Tracy-Hepburn picture.
