Re Stan Margulies' obituary, March 1: He was such a good person. I never heard a raised voice, a nasty remark or a mean criticism. In the multi-varied Hollywood world, he was straight--always. I was honored to be Stan Margulies' film editor on "If It's Tuesday This Must Be Belgium," "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," "Roots" and "The Thorn Birds," among others. Stan was my boss, but he was always a friend. There must have been difficult situations for him at times, but they never showed.

In "Entities at Work 'Out on a Limb' " (by Roderick Mann, Feb. 9), four Americans and two Peruvians take a trip up a mountain to see a sign that said "Flying saucers do exist. UFO contact point." After dark, Stan Margulies is told by a Peruvian that they have already stopped at the sign, "examined (it) carefully," and then driven on. None of the four Americans has any recollection of this having occurred. They ask Shirley MacLaine for her expert opinion and she says, "The entities are at work."

There have been some intriguing screen credits over the years but none, I dare say, to equal two that will appear on producer Stan Margulies' five-hour ABC miniseries of Shirley MacLaine's book "Out on a Limb." For among the cast credits of the show, scheduled to air in November, you will read: "Trance-channelers Kevin Ryerson and Sture Johanssen played by themselves." Trance-channelers? "People through whom 'entities' from the spirit world choose to speak," Margulies explained the other day.

LeVar Burton Role: Kunta Kinte MEMORIES: "I was the first one there [on location] in Savannah. Everyone came in after I arrived, and the buzz among the actors was, 'This is material that we do not often see.' These were all veterans in the industry and really venerable actors in my eyes, and they all had a special feeling in their voices when talking about the script. "There's such a thing as the 'Roots' family.

'Cycle' to TV: Robert Schenkkan is adapting his 1992 Pulitzer Prize-winning play "The Kentucky Cycle" as a miniseries for HBO. The six-hour play, co-produced by Los Angeles' Mark Taper Forum, tells the interlocking stories of three families in the Cumberland Mountains over a 200-year span. Washington and Broadway openings are scheduled this fall. Schenkkan and Emmy Award-winning producer Stan Margulies ("Separate but Equal," "Roots") will produce the miniseries.

Obviously "Roots" producer Stan Margulies has never sat with a room full of children and watched "Reading Rainbow" ("Touching a Nation's Soul," Jan. 18). LeVar Burton does have an incredible career--his work is enjoyed by many, many children, parents and educators. Apparently, the role of an excellent teacher in an innovative, educational television program is undervalued and underappreciated. Burton may have once touched the soul of a nation, but daily he touches the minds of our nation's future.
