Patrick J. Frawley Jr. has had a diverse career. He started in the import-export business, ran a company that makes ballpoint pens, chaired the Schick Safety Razor Co. and another concern that makes movie prints. He is also a wealthy man and recently sold one of his Holmby Hills estates to television producer Aaron Spelling. But for the last 20 years, Frawley, 65, now chairman and president of Frawley Corp. in Studio City, has had a one-track mind.

The potential is "phenomenal," said Sleichter, president of Advantage Life Products Inc. in Laguna Hills.
