Golden West College's Jazz Week Feb. 7-11 will include several jazz-oriented movies, both documentaries and dramas, in a free series. All the films will start at 3 p.m. in the campus' Forum II theater. The program begins Monday with "The Gig." The 1985 film, starring Cleavon Little and Wayne Rogers, follows a group of middle-aged jazz amateurs who land their first professional gig, with surprising results. The series shifts to real-life Tuesday with the 1959 release, "Jazz on a Summer's Day."

Frank D. Gilroy's "The Gig" (Friday at selected theaters) follows a quintet of full-time urban professionals--and part-time amateur jazzmen--who suddenly get a shot at a lifetime dream: playing an actual professional engagement before paying audiences. Accepting the gig--a last-minute fill-in--means they'll have to disrupt settled, conventional lives, jobs that include dentistry, real estate and used cars.

"There's a lot of glamour tonight," Kenneth Norris proclaimed. Not the least, at Las Floristas' Floral Headdress Ball, was Norris' announcement that he was giving another $100,000 to support Las Floristas Handicapped Children's Clinics. Carolyn Stockwell, sitting with Randy and a raft of friends, was almost giddy with pleasure over the way the Beverly Hilton International Ballroom looked. Bowers of flowers were everywhere, mixed with a touch of blue neon.

Adam Sandler, who stars in the upcoming holiday movie "Spanglish," has purchased a Pacific Palisades home for just under $13 million, according to real estate sources. Sandler bought a house, on two-thirds of an acre, with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms in nearly 13,000 square feet. The home, built in 1990, also has a pool. The property was not on the market.

Jim Paul, manager of an Arco service station in San Juan Capistrano, knows what his customers like and dislike. "They don't like paying for air," says Paul, who believes that it is just not right to charge customers for a service that for years was free. Many motorists would agree with Paul. But the days when drivers could roll into almost any service station and find air and water hoses next to the gas pumps are rapidly disappearing.

With Dan Rather knocked out of his chair by a cold, CBS seemed to be adrift without an anchorman. All the regular substitutes were away Wednesday when a sick Rather said he'd rather not. So Forrest Sawyer sat in. Forrest who? Sawyer has been with the network in New York for two months, but his is not a household name yet. So where have all the anchors gone? The first-string sub for Rather, Bob Schieffer, is on vacation. Charles Kuralt is on the road in London.

The third-in-ratings "CBS Morning News" next week will feature a new anchor team--Maria Shriver and Forrest Sawyer--but only on a temporary basis, CBS said Friday. Co-anchor Phyllis George is taking two weeks off, but definitely will return, the network said. There have been rumors that George, who joined the program only last January, may soon be headed elsewhere in CBS.
