>• Stars of two magical '70s hits, Iake Eissinmann, 46, and Kim Richards, 44, reunite in the new Race to Witch Mountain.

DID KIDS THINK YOU HAD SPECIAL POWERS? "They'd ask, 'Can you make me fly?'" says Richards, a mom of four (and aunt of Paris Hilton's!) who recently returned to acting.

WHY WERE THE FILMS SO SUCCESSFUL? "They resonated with a generation," says Eissinmann, now a producer-director. "Divorce was on the rise and here's a brother and sister trying to figure out who they are."

YOU WORKED WITH THE LEGENDARY BETTE DAVIS. "On her first day, I knocked on her door," says Richards, "and said, 'Hi, Miss Davis, if you need help with your lines, just let me know.'"

HAVE YOU STAYED IN TOUCH? "I only have one little sister," says Eissinmann, "and that's Kim."
