TELEVISION Q&A

Question: I've been a fan of Teri Garr for years, and have wondered why I don't see her doing much anymore. Did she ever work with Elvis Presley?

Answer: First, let me advise you that Teri Garr stars in Showtime's Ronnie and Julie airing on March 30.

Garr did nine movies with Elvis, but spoke nary a word in any of them. Instead, she danced in each of the flicks. (Garr started her professional career as a member of a San Francisco-based ballet company.)

Garr, who was nominated for an Oscar for best supporting actress for Tootsie has made several films over the years, including Young Frankenstein; Oh, God; Close Encounters of the Third Kind; A Perfect Alibi and Ready to Wear. Her more recent TV experiences have been rather disappointing: Two sitcoms, Good and Evil and Women of the House were short-lived.

Question: About 20 years ago, I saw a movie with Barbara Hershey and Chad Everett. She played a lesbian whose lover was framed for murder. Can you help me find the title?

Answer: The 1977 TV movie you're looking for is titled In the Glitter Palace. Hershey, who got her start on television in the 1960s and '70s, is in the running for a best supporting actress Oscar for The Portrait of a Lady.
