gets a movie
Roger Clinton, the younger brother of President Clinton, will appear in a new film, National Lampoon's Last Resort, Trimark Pictures said Friday. Corey Feldman and Corey Haim will co-star as Sam and Dave, who are summoned to Treasure Island to save it from an evil villain. Covering as CIA agents and scuba instructors, the boys face off with everything from a wise-cracking mermaid to a pink sweater-clad poodle. Clinton will assume the part of Gino, a none-too-bright hulk of a brute with a soft spot.

Help for Bosnian boy
Bianca Jagger, who last month brought a desperately ill 8-year-old Bosnian boy out of his besieged town to have his heart repaired, said she would like to adopt the child but realizes he must return home. "I have a moral obligation to see he gets back" home to Tuzla, Jagger said Thursday at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital in New York, where surgeons patched a hole in Muhamed Ribic's heart June 3. Muhamed was discharged Friday and will live with Jagger in her Manhattan apartment until his six-month visa runs out. Jagger, once married to rock star Mick Jagger, has since arranged for two more children to be brought out.
The Oscar that Joan Crawford won for her performance in Mildred Pierce fetched $68,500 at auction in New York on Saturday, becoming only the second Academy Award publicly sold, a spokesman for Christie's said. Crawford's Oscar, which was expected to bring only $8,000 to $12,000, was sold to an unidentified private collector after heated bidding. Only one other Oscar, won by Harold Russell for the Best Years of Our Lives, has ever been sold.
A father and son paid $20,000 for a custom-made guitar signed by President Bush, Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks and others that was auctioned in Nashville, Tenn., to raise money for the Grand Ole Opry Trust Fund. The guitar is a Fender Presidential Telecaster, one of only two built to commemorate the 1991 Country Music Association's awards show. The other guitar was given to Bush.
