Tall, dark and handsome Hugh Grant -- he plays a minister in the soon-due "Sirens" -- is being described as "the new Cary Grant." We shall see what we shall see. But what we definitely shall see in the movie is Elle...

It was Shirley Cowell, the cornstarch heiress who writes beautiful songs, who got her friend Lena Horne back in a recording studio. Shirley's not only the executive producer of Lena's record, "We'll Be Together Again," due out May 9 for Blue Note, but she has written the tune, "Day Follows Day," Lena sings with John Mathis, the record's only duet. The famous Broadway director George Abbott wrote the lyrics for "Day Follows Day," and that fabulous man, 106 years of age, is flying from his home in Florida to New York next week for the opening performance of the Broadway revival of his "Damn Yankees" and the party afterward, where he might even dance.

Linda and Paul McCartney and the kids flew off for a little vacation at their favorite Caribbean hideaway, Round Hill in Montego Bay, Jamaica. It will tickle you all over to hear that they arrived in time for the Sugar Cane Ball at Round Hill, one of the island's really big social affairs. This year the theme was "Sea Horses and Underwater Friends," and the ladies dressed in colors of the ocean. Some of them even tried to make waves. (Dreadful joke, but true). Anyhow, along with the McCartneys, the guests included Prince and Princess Lorenzo Borghese, in from Italy, Rhode Island Governor Bruce Sundlun, the Duke of Maural from Spain, several English swells, Joan and Joe Cullman and 238 others just like them.
