All things pass in Hollywood, but for Army Archerd. For 50 years, while great stars faded and powerful studio chiefs sank into obscurity, Archerd has written his daily column for Variety, the entertainment industry's must-read, and he can count the times he's missed a deadline on the fingers of one hand. "Army is a legend in Hollywood and his column is read like the Bible," said Rabbi David Baron, Archerd's spiritual leader at Temple Shalom for the Arts. On Tuesday, Jan. 28, the American Friends of the Hebrew University will recognize Archerd's "dedication, generosity and deep commitment to his community" by presenting him with the Scopus Award.
