The Soviet Union gets a taste of Hollywood romance next month with the country's first American Film Festival. "Splash," "Roxanne," "Romancing the Stone" and "Children of a Lesser God" are among the films to be shown for a week in Moscow and five days in Leningrad, and stars, including Daryl Hannah, Michael Douglas and Marlee Matlin, will appear at the screenings. Two movies requested by the Soviets, "A Chorus Line" and "Singing in the Rain," will be shown, as well as the 1978 Vietnam war film "Coming Home."

"We wanted quality films which gave a new image of America -- a sense of our history, part of our humor, our culture, universal issues and films for children," said Carole Peyser, director of the nonprofit Film and Theater in Diplomacy, a San Francisco group that arranged the festival. She said the event won't be announced in the Soviet Union until its opening night, Feb. 19.

Marcos Belongings Bring $600,000

The Philippine government of Corazon Aquino is cashing in on the Marcos name, if indirectly. An auction of furniture and antiques from a New York City apartment that belonged to former president Ferdinand Marcos and his wife Imelda brought in almost $600,000 Saturday, $200,000 more than expected. "There is the indefinable issue of provenance," said a spokesman for Christie's auction house in New York, which conducted the auction of 83 items for the Philippine government. "There certainly is a mystique about what has been a famous -- or an infamous -- person's property."

A 19th-century mahogany dining table sold for $33,000, more than four times its estimated value, and a pair of George II mahogany library armchairs sold for $37,400, more than three times their estimated worth. One buyer paid $17,600 for a dark green malachite jewel box made in 1890 by the renowned Russian jeweler Faberge'. None of the buyers was identified.

Eddie Murphy, Leading Man

Eddie Murphy's raw language scares some moviegoers away, but his name on the marquee draws in more customers than any other star, according to a survey of movie theater executives. He replaces Tom Cruise as the top box office draw. Rounding out the Top 10: Michael Douglas, Michael J. Fox, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Paul Hogan, Cruise, Glenn Close, Sylvester Stallone, Cher and Mel Gibson.

Hahn Says Bakker Was Threatened

Jessica Hahn says former PTL president Richard Dortch was "not that far from the truth" when he said he was threatened with violence by the New York evangelist Hahn worked for.

On Friday, Dortch said the Rev. Gene Profeta threatened him and Jim Bakker in late 1984 during stalled negotiations with Hahn over how much money she should receive to keep quiet about a 1980 sexual encounter with Bakker. Dortch claimed Profeta "told me that he would come to Charlotte, North Carolina, and when he got finished with Jim Bakker and me, we would never be able to do anything else with a woman for the rest of our lives."

Fearing that he might be killed, Dortch said, he arranged a $265,000 settlement with Hahn in early 1985. Hahn was Profeta's secretary at the Full Gospel Tabernacle Church in Massapequa, N.Y.

"Dortch had many conversations with many people ... and what I'm saying is it wasn't all pleasant," said Hahn Saturday from the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles. "There was pressure there. I can't even say on who. I can only say that {Dortch} was not that far from the truth. I'm not saying he is an angel. I think he just needs to set the record straight."

Last April, The Charlotte Observer reported that Dortch used $265,000 in PTL money for Hahn after her representatives threatened to sue PTL and make public her one-day sexual encounter with Bakker.

Rosa Parks, Riding in Comfort

Thirty-three years ago Rosa Parks touched off the civil rights movement when she refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Ala., bus. But now Parks, who celebrates her 75th birthday Thursday, can forgo public transportation and get around in style in her 1988 Buick Century. The car is a gift from Detroit automobile dealer Prat Parekh, who learned that Parks' car had been totaled in an accident two months ago.

"All of us owe a lot to Mrs. Parks for her tireless efforts to help all minorities," he said. "But for her and Dr. Martin Luther King's efforts, perhaps I wouldn't be able to operate this dealership."
