She sat down at her type- writer and wrote a story about three men in love with the same woman. Naturally, that woman was Yvette. Then she sold the package to ABC television which will beam the two-hour movie Oct. 8. The title was "Counter- Yvette is livid that the network retitled her project "Hit Now she's completing a sec- ond script, another television movie which she hopes will spin off into a weekly situation comedy. "I'll star as one of the sis- ters in the movie she said, "but if it becomes a series 1 will just be the pro- ducer. Acting in a series is too lime consuming.

Yvette has no economic problems. She is married to director Stanley Donen who manages to keep the wolf from his Bel Air mansion. But Yvette is an indepen- dent womar. She jets around the world to archeologlcul digs, selling stories and pic- ture layouts to magazines. She recently sold her own textile business in Haiti. It is, in fact, a wonder that Donen knows what Yvette looks like unless he sees her movies. She recently returned from Canada where she starred in "Journey into Prior to that she visit- ed Java, Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Nepal and Thai- land. "Archeological trips are a jumping off place for my writ- ing and Yvette said. "And I enjoy the free- dom. I couldn't go to all those places if 1 were in a series. "I'm writing screenplays because it's the only way 1 can insure myself of getting the sort of roles I want. Recite Own Words "The thing I enjoy most is writing a story and then per- forming in it.

The other is a swinging chick (in the make for a rich hus- band." As if Yvetle were not busy enough, she is preparing a ro- mantic comedy movie script in which she would star. Can't Wail "We actresses can't afford lo sit around and wait for male writers to provide us with good she said. "In the pictures I've seen late- ly the script would have been improved If a woman played the man's roles robbing banks, breaking out of pris- ons, putting out fires. "Instead of writing good parts for women, male writers simply ask actresses to take off their clothes. The heck with that." Bit Parts: JOURNEY TO THE fDGE OF TOMORROW.
