At 52, Sanford Lieberson is no Hollywood neophyte. The London-based film maker had a brief stint as head of 20th Century Fox Film's movie production in 1979, and he knows projects are imperiled when studios change hands. Yet Lieberson was stung by his experience this year with Columbia Pictures, when new managers inherited his $7-million "Stars & Bars." For the film's opening, Columbia bought a 5-inch by 5-inch ad in the New York Times instead of the full page typically bought by a major studio.

How encouraging it must be to film makers that Columbia Pictures Entertainment and Dawn Steel handed out a $35,000 1988 BMW convertible as a gift to writer/director David Seltzer, whose current cars aren't quite up to snuff? (Outtakes, by Leonard Klady, Nov. 6). But maybe we should look beyond the superficial. $35,000 may not seem like much in relation to the salaries and expenditures of a major studio, but for a corporation laboring to re-establish itself, the money could make a world of difference to a film that needs the proper promotion to give it a fair chance at the box office, such as Sanford Lieberson's "Stars and Bars."

Marit Allen, a Hollywood costume designer whose artful style made such movies as this year's "La Vie en Rose" required viewing for fashion lovers, has died. She was 66. Allen, who was a fashion editor with British Vogue before she changed careers, died Nov. 26 of a brain aneurysm in Sydney, Australia, where she was working on the superhero movie "Justice League of America," according to news reports. During more than 30 years as a costume designer, Allen created wardrobes for some 40 films.
