Barron Matalon, 47, Hollywood hairdresser whose clients included Jane Fonda, Debra Winger, Madeleine Stowe and Rosemary Clooney. Matalon won national attention in 1986 when he created a chin-length modern shag cut for Fonda to model at the Academy Awards. He nicknamed the revisited style "the new 'Klute' " after one of the actress's films, and described it as an updated version of the 1960s layered look. He also gave the short cut to Fonda's daughter Vanessa Vadim.

--The daughter of late mobster Sam Giancana says she has been mistreated "by Hollywood rat finks."

Last week, actress Brooke Palance took the plunge. She went from so-so shoulder-length hair to a chic, freewheeling style that is showing up on savvy women around the world. The cut of the season is short and boyish at the nape of the neck with feminine fullness through the crown. A longer top layer and subtle internal layering make for wash-and-wear ease, myriad styling possibilities and freedom from most hair-styling products. The sassy coiffure has no official name (although Vidal Sassoon calls its versions Turnstyles)

The chairman of Virgin Atlantic Airways and Virgin Records has set his sights on a flight record. Richard Branson wants to use a hot-air balloon to cross the Pacific Ocean. The 6,200-mile trip from Miyakonojo, Japan, to Southern California would be the longest hot-air balloon flight ever. "It's the last great challenge," said Branson, 38, whose balloon flight across the Atlantic--less than half the length of the Pacific trip--nearly killed him two years ago.

At least 300,000 people, chanting "Choice now" and sending a resounding message of alarm to Supreme Court justices and politicians, marched in support of legal abortion Sunday in a demonstration matching the largest ever to occur here. The marchers, many wearing the traditional white of suffragists, said that they hope the high court will "heed our message" and not use a pending case to overturn the 1973 decision that made abortion legal. Many participants hung coat hangers from their clothing or around their necks and carried signs saying: "Never Again."

"This is going to be painful," Tom Hayden said with a slight sigh as he settled into his seat in a darkened theater. Moments later, larger-than-life images of Robert Kennedy on the 1968 campaign trail in California filled the screen, and there was no way to avoid the feeling that the next two hours, however entertaining they might be, were going to lead to some psychic discomfort. Sure enough, at the end of the film, Hayden excused himself, eyes reddened, to duck into the men's room.

Thin and fit, her face glowing pink, a quite relaxed Jane Fonda kicked off her heels, smoothly tucked her legs under a russet-suede skirt and settled cozily into a 90-minute chat with co-star Jeff Bridges. Their current movie, "The Morning After," a romance thriller about a down-and-out drunk Los Angeles actress and a down-home disabled ex-cop from Bakersfield--what Fonda touts as a "movie-movie, not a message movie"--opens Christmas Day.

For years in this car-clogged city, the easiest way to score a tank of biodiesel -- that much-hyped fuel of the future -- involved seeking out a guy named Rob Del Bueno. Del Bueno is not an engineer or a gas station owner, but a former member of a sci-fi surf rock band called Man or Astro-man? He played bass, and spent most of the 1990s telling people he was from outer space.
