I don't think I've ever had this kind of interview before. Most of the time, I ask a question and the person answers, and even though the answer might be a little obscure, I can figure it out. That's what we get paid to do, figure things out. But then there's Sharon Farrell.

This is the story of a hard-working family on a limited budget pursuing the Hollywood dream. Mom is actress Sharon Farrell, star of "The Reivers" and in 1970 described as one of the decade's most promising young film talents. Her career never quite gained its full potential, though she worked steadily for a good number of years. She's still got her looks and her sweet, ingenuous Southern personality, but at age 40 finds acting jobs tough to come by.

Pat H. Broeske erroneously says Dennis Hopper has not directed a movie since "The Last Movie" in 1971 ("Who Loves 'Hoosiers'?--Indiana, That's Who. . . ," Nov. 16). In 1980 he directed "Out of the Blue," in which he starred with Linda Manz and Sharon Farrell. As Hopper said a few years ago when the movie was screened in Boston, the original director had made such a mess that the producer fired him and asked Hopper to take over, which he did, obtaining full directorial credit. In my opinion, the result was a seriously flawed but nevertheless powerful film, taking a look one generation down the line from Hopper's character in "Easy Rider" and seeing the punk rebellion: To each generation its own revolution.

Robert Conrad's hair has turned silver but his jaw's as square as ever in "Sworn to Vengeance" (at 9 tonight on CBS, Channels 2 and 8), a movie about a Carson City, Nev., police sergeant who doggedly tracks down the killers of three teen-agers. The murder of the two girls and a boy is luridly dramatized in the visions of a psychic (Sharon Farrell) who awakens with images of the killings flashing through her mind.

"The Reivers," adapted from the William Faulkner novel, is a slice-of-life film that effortlessly transports the viewer to the gentler, bygone days of 1905 rural Mississippi. It is a coming-of-age story that elicits the kind of reverie viewers found in last year's superb "Ramblin' Rose," but "The Reivers" is even more fun.
