Filming an NBC miniseries in which he plays mass murderer Ted Bundy, Mark Harmon calls the role a "real hat trick. Bundy was your basic textbook schizophrenic psycho. One minute he was the all-American boy. The next, he was a deranged psychopath." Still, says Harmon, who will hang up his stethoscope on NBC's St. Elsewhere, "It beats pushing bedpans."...

Barbara Hershey's stature as an actress reaches new heights in Woody Allen's latest film, Hannah and Her Sisters (see review, page 12). But Hershey felt dwarfed by three of her male co-stars, Max Von Sydow, Michael Caine and Daniel Stern. "Max and Daniel are 6'3", and Michael is 6'2"," says 5'4" Hershey.
