PEOPLE IN BRIEF: Scarlett's dresses need repairs

Scarlett's dresses need repairs

AUSTIN, Texas -- It's time to find out if fans of ''Gone With the Wind'' frankly give a damn about the fabulous dresses worn by Vivien Leigh in the multiple Oscar-winning Civil War drama.

The Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas in Austin is trying to raise $30,000 to restore five of Scarlett O'Hara's now tattered gowns from the 1939 film.

The Ransom Center is planning an exhibit to mark the movie's 75th anniversary in 2014, but at the moment most of them are too fragile to go on display, according to Jill Morena, the center's collection assistant for costumes and personal effects.

Official: Smith had 44 different drugs at home

LOS ANGELES -- A month after Anna Nicole Smith died of a drug overdose, her psychiatrist gathered 44 different prescription drugs from Smith's seaside home in the Bahamas and delivered them to a medical examiner in Florida, according to testimony Tuesday in the drug conspiracy trial of the psychiatrist, a doctor and Smith's boyfriend-lawyer.

Dr. Harold Schueler, chief toxicologist for Broward County, Fla., testified that he met with Dr. Khristine Eroshevich in March, 2007, when she brought the cornucopia of pills and liquids to his office.

Many of the bottles contained painkillers, opiates and sleeping medications. Methadone, phenobarbital and Valium were among the drugs found along with antibiotics and Tylenol.

'Lost' alums pursuing TV project

NEW YORK -- Michael Emerson confirms he and former fellow ''Lost'' star Terry O'Quinn are shopping around for ideas for a TV show.

Emerson said they both want something more lighthearted than ''Lost.'' He hopes the show can acknowledge their ''age and frailty.'' Emerson says he envisions a show where, if their characters get hit in the face, they ''don't get up for a month.''

The 55-year-old Emerson and 58-year-old O'Quinn are both up for best supporting actor Emmy Awards.
