"I'm one of the girls who's one of the boys," sings Lauren Bacall, 56, in Woman of the Year, which will bow on Broadway in April. In the role of a high-powered TV anchorwoman, she ingratiates herself at an all-male hangout and is made an "honorary guy." The musical is an updated version of the 1942 Spencer Tracy-Katharine Hepburn newspaper flick. Bacall's role resembles Barbara Walters, and the actress will likely have no trouble empathizing. Her contract calls for a heady 10 percent of the take.
Sly is socko
Sylvester Stallone, 34, proved a knockout at the L.A. City of Hope Hospital charity auction, which was organized by his 29-year-old wife, Sasha, with whom he is happily reconciled. The Rocky III training gloves he donated brought $475. But then Sly's presence began to distract attention from the bidding, and Sasha hustled him away.
A Marcos milestone
As Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos, 63, announced the end of eight years of martial law, his wife, Imelda, 51, nearly burst into tears, moved by a reference in his speech to the "dangers" her family has undergone. In 1972 Imelda was attacked by a knife wielder, and son Bongbong, 21, who attends a U.S. business school, is rumored to be on the "hit list" of dissident exiles.
Martin takes off
Even as an actor, Dean Paul (Players) Martin, 29, was seldom scrutinized as closely. But before graduation from the Air National Guard officer training school in Knoxville, Tenn., Dean's boy passed the inspection of Captain David Baumann (as fellow candidate Douglass Marberry looked on). Second Lieutenant Martin next takes jet training in Columbus, Miss. But come November, he'll head home to Hollywood and deal with pilots of another sort for ABC.
Simon and Copland
Brooklyn-born Aaron Copland, 80, had already composed his classic Appalachian Spring when Carly Simon, 35, was still into lullabies. But they shared the podium at a Stereo Review magazine fete at New York's St. Regis Hotel. Come Upstairs, Carly's latest LP, had been named one of the top records of 1980, and Copland was being honored for his contribution to the "Quality of American Musical Life." As Carly might have put it, nobody has done it better.
Tanya Tucker, 22, and Glen Campbell, 42, plan to marry—but when? A St. Valentine's date was reportedly shelved because, says an aide, "Tanya wants a big wedding and that takes preparation." But even with a busy schedule of separate and duo appearances, the country couple shoehorned in a Beverly Hills bash for Glen's buddy Johnny Mathis. They couldn't stay until the Twelfth of Never but did dance for a long, long time.
