Villanueva, a former kicker for the Los Angeles Rams who went on to own Spanish-language television and radio stations, said he would commit more than $20 million of his own money.

The Scene: Wednesday's opening night for "My Fair Lady" at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. This veritable tsunami of musical nostalgia washes over the Music Center until July 18. "You get a little choked up when you hear the songs," said Charlotte Rae. "It's been 40 years and the music still hits home." * The Setting: The after-party was in a roped off flower-bedecked area on the Music Center's plaza.

Three-hundred pals of the Doheny Eye Institute were back in the saddle again Monday evening at the Beverly Wilshire--this time in black tie and with that American treasure, Gene Autry. He received the institute's first Doheny Award. "I think they put in three corneas--or whatever you call them--before one really took," said America's favorite cowboy (that's what benefit chairman Montgomery Fisher called him), "but I can still see pretty well out of the other eye."

Quarterbacks Troy Winslow and Bob Toledo were roommates during the San Francisco 49ers' training camp in 1968, turned loose when a labor agreement assured the return of veterans John Brodie, George Mira and Steve Spurrier. Winslow and Toledo have not crossed paths in the more than 19 years since. As a result, I'm pretty sure Toledo is unaware of the role Winslow might have played in the UCLA coach's success this season.

In past years, corporations gave to nonprofit museums and charities without expecting much in return. With downsizing rampant, corporations find themselves squeezed on gifts. Charities find themselves talking with corporate "marketing departments." And, that, said I. Michael Heyman, secretary, Smithsonian Institution, can present a problem in ethics and morality.

This being the 10th anniversary of the beginning of the last pro football season in Los Angeles, it is perhaps a good time to mourn and remember what our community has missed by not possessing an NFL team. Nothing. We've missed nothing. We've lost nothing. Two teams gone? We have more teams than ever. We have a dozen teams on living room TVs, a handful of teams on our car radios, and every single team in the cafe down the street. We have two Monday night teams. We have two Thursday night teams.

Sitting about 14 feet from Queen Elizabeth II and just six from Prince Philip at the Library of Congress luncheon last week in Washington was a thrill. A number of Californians, including First Lady Gayle Wilson, were among the 350 invited to the elegant affair co-hosted by the library and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

"It's going to cost me a lot of money tonight," the adorable Nick Vanoff stage-whispered as wave after wave of Valentino models came over the stairs Busby Berkeley style and swung through a sound stage stuffed with rich and famous. The least of his worries was the price of the ticket to the Wednesday night benefit at 20th Century Fox, organized by the Colleagues, premiering the Spring/Summer Valentino collection.

Dame Gwyneth Jones, star of Los Angeles Music Center Opera's "Die Frau Ohne Schatten," was among the last to arrive at the midnight Halloween night supper in the sky-top Pavilion restaurant at the Music Center. How had the opening gone? "I thought it was wonderful. Not only did the audience applaud; they were so quiet. You know, the production opened first in London, but it fits better here in Los Angeles--with all your talk of women's lib and women's rights and abortion."
