Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 6, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Beck's Show Business Beat By Marilyn Berk HOLLYWOOD (NYT) *-Perry Como’s been attending senior citizens seminars at his Tequesta, Cia., home, and reports the older segment of our population would prefer we start calling it like it is where they’re concerned “There’s growing resentment against the term senior citizen’,’’says Perry. “It’s no more than a flowery cover-up to hide a fact of life, “lr you’re getting old, why not be called ‘old ’ What’s wrong with being old 9 Why not be proud of your gray hair and wrinkles?” Como, at 82, admits that not everyone feels that way. Bob Hope and Kd Sullivan, both 71. have l)oen trying to convince Perry he should follow their dye-as-you-go routine, “but I just laugh at them. My hair has been gray since I was 25 Besides, you can dye it only so long before it starts turning red ” Perry was turning the heart of every female set si der during Hollywood taping of his Sept. 12 CBS special the other day. Looking very ‘hep’ in slacks and a tie-dyed safari shirt, he's still the same cool Como. “I don't even know what I'm doing here,” he laughed. The sponsor asked me how much I wanted to work this season, and I said I didn t want to work at all — so they offered me four specials I couldn’t turn down ” He also hasn’t been able to turn down the latest enticements from RCA Records, and after 30 years with that label has just signed a new contract that will have him crooning for the company until 1984. “At this rate CII be hobbling into the recording studio when I'm barely able to sing.” In extremely fine voice these days, he heads to Nashville next month to record a follow-up to his two big hits from the last several years “It’s Impossible” and “And I Love Her So”. * * * Several months age Telly Savalas informed me that he and Sally Adams — the mother of his 15-month-old son — we're planning a wedding. Now he reports that congratulations are in order The wedding has taken place Telly, his bride, and his baby will head to England soon as guests of the HBC. While there he also expects to make plans for filming segments of his CBS “Kojak” series on English soil. . . . Flip Wilson, the fellow who last year tired of being a TV star, appears to be on his way back, at least as a semi-series star He’s throwing himself into rehearsals of his October NBC special with such nearmonastic fervor, the sponsor now wants to up his commitment of Wilson specials from four to six for the coming season. Ifs nice for a change, to have everyone getting along so splendidly on a Wilson show Of course, theres still time for fireworks to ignite. Actual taping doesn't start until Sept. 18 Barry Newman is getting the reputation around his “PetrocelU” set as a fellow who won t settle for second best. But from reports I get from the production crew, Barry's attitude could well bt 1 responsible for turning tht NOON TO to PJI. Convenient parking in our ramp [DOWNTOWN, - •?
