Women all over the country will get to make up their own minds this Sunday when CBS-TV broadcasts the party—a benefit for the Burt Reynolds Heart Center in the Egleston Hospital for Children in Atlanta. The fete, at NBC's Burbank Studio 4, drew the Hollywood "A" list—people like James Stewart, Henry Winkler, Linda Evans, Charles Bronson and Loretta Swit. Though Burt's ex-squeeze and "best friend" Dinah Shore showed up, former flame Sally Field was absent, presumably without malice. Who was Burt's date? Speculation centered on 1976 Miss America Tawny Godin Little, who was very much in evidence. Burt was quick to cut off undue inferences. "I've dated Tawny Little," he explained. "That doesn't mean we're having an affair." But Burt's Best Little Whorehouse co-star, Dom DeLuise, plainly enjoyed the evening's wonder-who's-kissing-and-not-telling game. "Being the best friend of a sex symbol is wonderful," he chortled. "Just from his leftovers my complexion has completely cleared up."
