L.A. WEDDING WOWS.

HOLLYWOOD That famous quip describing the Fred Astaire/ Ginger Rogers partnership ("He gives her class; she gives him sex appeal") applies equally to the Music Center/Hollywood teaming that took place July 18 at the premiere of "Runaway Bride."

For the second year in a row, Paramount has given a fundraising preem to the Music Center. Besides bringing in $270,000, the benefit fosters the meeting of two distinct L.A. tribes: Pasadena's old money and the Westside's money-so-new-it's-practically-wet.

Two mare forces behind making the benefit happen were Paramount topper Sherry Lansing and "Bride" director Garry Marshall, both of whom serve on the Music Center's board.

Marshall remarked that the "movie industry thinks the Music Center is too uppity rich and WASPy, and the Music Center thinks Hollywood people won't listen to them."

One thousand guests were on hand to attend the screening in Westwood and after-party at the Armand Hammer Museum.
