Dapper, genial wearer of many media hats, Harry Evans is collaborating with Court TV on a one-hour TV documentary airing Oct. 2. "Shots in the Dark" is all about crime photography over the years. Harry hosts and does print commentary in a companion book by Gail Buckland from Little, Brown. "Mary Silverman of Court TV and I lunched and came up with this idea. I've always been fascinated by war and crime, even images that made me sick and posed the ethical question, `Is it historically justified to publish such pictures?"' Harry's done plenty of TV before, hosting shows on the telly in the U.K. and is an avid photographer with several picture books out. He's also written 20,000 words for a new photo book about war correspondents, and after our chat was off to Blighty for an honorary degree. Stout fellow.

Can the Paris Review really be almost half a century old? They marked their 48th year the other evening with a film benefit and then dinner at the Racquet Club on Park Ave. Seems like just yesterday George Plimpton, Harold Humes and Peter Matthiessen put out the first issue and American college girls like Jane Fonda started spending intern summers in Paris, changing typewriter ribbons, going out for baguettes and Beaujolais and were being chased around desks. Vive la France!

That sprightly fellow David Remnick has no shame. First his New Yorker reaped all those magazine awards, then, in a single issue (May 21) of The New York Times he was quoted in three different stories, on Woody Allen, Bob Dylan and Muhammad Ali. He probably went home that evening, had a dry sherry, and wrote a new best seller.
