I ACTION COLOR Cher and daughter Chastity By Jerry Buck LOS ANGELES (AP) - In the Sonny and Cher battle of the sexes on television, Cher always won with a clever putdown, acting the tart-tongued liberated woman But in real life, she says. Sonny was a “watered-down Svengali” who ran their careers and lives with an iron fist Except on TV. there was no back talk — and the jokes about Sonny’s being short or Italian were his idea, she says, because he wanted her to be witty. And liberated'1 He wouldn’t let her go to the movies or learn tennis because it would take her out of the house, she says Cher talked candidly in an interview about life with her now-estranged husband, picturing him as Professor Higgins to her Eliza Doolittle, shaping lier and molding her Show Business Beat By Marilyn Beck HOLLYWOOD (NYT) -“Harry and Tonto’’ is providing Art Carney with more than some rave reviews.

Looking backwards, he feels, “I should have seen a psychiatrist about the problem when I first started drinking at age 18.” The professional funny man, most famous for his Ed Norton portrayal on Jackie Gleason’s “The Honeymooners” series, refers to himself as “an arrested alcoholic.” says, “my longest period of sobriety was two years — not the last two years.” And claims that more than anything else he hopes he ll never take another drink in his life. “There were times.” he reveals, “when drink interfered with my career, when I would check mvself into one hospital or another for a cure. But I always pulled myself together No one ever had to have me committed." That last fact is a decided point of pride with him He has known times of extreme emotional, physical and professional depression, Art volunteers And is elated that things are looking so positive now because of “Harry and Tonto”. Talking about the picture in which he gives a touching portrayal of a 72-year-old widower attempting to cope with modern life, Carney says, “It reinforced my realization that I'm growing old — and that I don’t want to lose another hour of my life in a drink-mduced haze. ” While Barbra Streisand and Jon Peters are enjoying an 1 Acapulco holiday, the buzz is going around town that Kris Kristofforson is being re- I placed as Barbra's co-star in | the musical remake of “A J Star Is Born” — by Jon Peters • EVERY TUES. & WED. • JRJ • fVERV FRI. & SAT. - PHOENIX • (Bowling Banquets Welcome) SHOW LOUNGE J 113 ‘A’ Ave, N.W. $1 OFF COUPON ' PIZZERIA • / * 2739 6th St. SW.

Finally, she said shed had enough and she rebelled “I didn t object to him running things,” she said “He was better at it than I was. But I think people, including women, should have more freedom about how your life is run than just saying yes.” The “Sonny and (’her Comedy Hour”, top-rated for three years, fell apart with the 10-year marriage. They continued the show for two years after they separated Wanted To Do Divorce Show “lf he hadn t filed for separation — no, that’s not true I didn’t want to continue the show We went to the network and asked to do a divorce show, but the network didn’t I like it It would have been the same show — except that it would be a divorced couple.

Chastity, is being negotiated in divorce court. Sonny bounced hack with a new ABC variety show premiering this fall. Cher will do a solo special for CBS.

She was lfi Sonny, then 28, was a once-married ne’er do well After a short courtship, they were married on Oct. 27, 19B4 She was a shy, introverted girl, so frightened of audiences that Sonny had to push her on stage for their first performance. She clung to him, depended on him, looked to him for guidance. Finally, it became smothering “Sonny brought me out personally,” (’her said “He always wanted me to be witty and a good entertainer. But he wanted me to stay the way I was when I met him It’s hard to stay the way you were at IB when you’re 27.” “Sonny was a male chauvinist. There’s nothing wrong with that. He’s really a nice person,” she said “He thinks women are beautiful, but should stay rn their place, wherever it is.” Cher was just back from an exercise class. Her long black hair was parted in the middle and tied Indian style. She wore no makeup, but her dark skin — she’s part Armenian, part Turkish, part French and part Cherokee Indian — glistened. Her dark sloe eyes reflected rays from the late afternoon sun She spoke again of Sonny and her “personal freedom.” “I don’t mean bizarre freedom; I couldn’t go to the movies with a girlfriend The only place I could go was shopping. “I wanted to learn tennis and he said he wasn’t too crazy about that It would take me away from home There weren’t many other things because I never got a chance. I learned to ski, which I really love, but I didn t get a chance to do it until I left him.” Pushed Sonny To Buy House The only time she ever I pushed Sonny, she says, was to buy the $1 3 million house just off Sunset boulevard She cried After the breakup, she paid Sonny $451),(MHI for the house and was to move hack in on July I.
