Re "Entertainer Shari Lewis Dies at 65," Aug. 4: From the time I was a boy growing up in the '60s, I loved Shari Lewis. Whether it was her own show or appearances on others, I never missed a chance to see Lamb Chop. Perhaps one of the most talented ventriloquists to ever grace our presence, Shari had a way of capturing our hearts. I remember being in the military, far from home, turning the television on in our day room and watching reruns of her show every Saturday. She made me feel less homesick.

The odds against an actress making her film debut co-starring with the hottest male star in the world are about as long as those against Elaine May getting a go-ahead on "Ishtar 2." But 24-year-old Shari Headley did just that, being chosen to star opposite Eddie Murphy in the current summer hit "Coming to America." Headley doesn't seem to be overwhelmed by either her selection for the role or the media attention she's getting because of it.

Actress Shari Shattuck, who plays Ashley on "The Young and the Restless," got quite a kick out of her character's obsession with clean shaven skin on the work front. "It's like Walt Disney having a moustache, but nobody else at Disney being allowed to have one," she says, pointing out that Jabot owner Victor Newman (played by Eric Braeden) "has a moustache." Shattuck, however, recalls reading some king of psychological study that said women prefer to meet a guy without any facial hair.

NEW YORK - Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman's debut feature, the offbeat comic book adaptation "American Splendor," was greeted with so much success when it came out in 2003 that the filmmaking duo couldn't imagine things going any other way. "We had this level of delusion that a lot of first-time filmmakers have but maybe multiplied because of the reception," Pulcini said of the Paul Giamatti movie, which HBO's film division allowed them...

Lewis, best known as a puppeteer/ventriloquist, is also a symphony conductor. Just about every weekend, she's conducting an orchestra in a family-oriented concert somewhere in the country. Using her expertise in classical music and puppeteering, she's figured out a way to turn youngsters on to that music. Her method?

Shari Arison is Israel's richest woman, presiding over a financial empire that includes the country's second-biggest bank. She also claims in a memoir to see visions of the future. But one thing she apparently didn't envision is the puzzlement, laughter and even nervousness that have greeted her book. Arison, 51, is up against an Israeli public that is notoriously cynical about power elites in general and banks in particular. "Everyone has the right to hear voices," quipped Motti Kirshenbaum, a popular TV commentator.
