conditions a motion pic ture insurance company will allow While the flowing lava was pri marily a specialeffects creation the surrounding fires were too real after the 35th or 40th consecutive night

the perks of stardom he is still trou bled by the responsibilities of deal ing with an insatiable entertain ment press The proud papa of a 5 yearold daughter he is anxious to protect her from their intrusions When his marriage hit the rocks he certainly didnt want to make it a news event Im often asked questions that a normal person would think are nobodys explains Jones who still makes his
