Harry and the Hendersons stars a mysterious mountain creature, and it provides an occasion to remember what Dorothy Parker once said about Hollywood - the home of more than a few abominable showmen. The only "ism" that counts in Hollywood, Parker remarked, is plagiarism. No one knows the truth of Parker's observation more than Steven Spielberg, whose caliber as a filmmaker is forever being confirmed by the dozens of weak imitations his mega-hits have inspired. As the director of E.T. - The Extra- Terrestrial, the most popular picture in history, Spielberg was a glum witness to the studio stampede to see if any screenwriters had an extra- terrestrial or two stashed away in a drawer.

A few days after Halloween, Sasquatch, also known as Bigfoot, surfaced in Warminster, found his way to Archbishop Wood, and walked into a film session for the Vikings' offensive linemen. "He scared the hell out of me," Wood assistant coach Mike Carey said. "It was the coolest costume I've ever seen. " Inside that costume was Wood's Chris O'Connor, a 6-foot-7, 278-pound guard. It was Carey, the squad's defensive coordinator and offensive-line coach, who had nicknamed the hulking senior "Bigfoot.

Was it itchy in that suit? Was it hot in there, on that day in 1967, when Elna Wallace put on an ape suit and cavorted in a forest near Bluff Creek, Calif.? Was the man behind the camera guffawing as Elna wandered around, looked back, then traipsed into the woods? Was she giggling? Was her husband, the prankster behind this whole thing, snickering fit to bust? Well, now he is. On Nov. 26, Ray Wallace died, and with him, his greatest creation: Bigfoot. Yes, Bigfoot.

Friends, I have always believed, and I still believe. Ray Wallace, who died last month at the age of 84, had fascinated or amused the world for decades by presenting us with the spoor of Bigfoot, bargain-basement yeti of the Great Northwest. Indeed, almost all the "evidence" for the existence of Bigfoot emerged from Ray's place, and his family now says that the famous grainy film of Foot in fact depicted Ray's wife Elna in a gorilla suit. According to the Associated Press, the hoax started in 1958, when Wallace tried to scare thieves away from his logging trailer by surrounding it with huge footprints.

DESPITE THE fact that marijuana for medical purposes has once more been denied approval, I must say that Nico Chan's letter has convinced me that Congress is wrong in this matter. After all, the fact that this writer somehow worked Bigfoot into his argument proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Mr. Chan is only using marijuana for medical purposes, and not abusing it. I'm sure Bigfoot would agree. Stuart Caesar Philadelphia

Most autophiles are probably thinking they'll come to the 1988 Philadelphia International Auto Show with their Bigfoot firmly on the ground. But this year, chances are their heads will be geared skyward for the new star of the show, the Hystar Airship, touted as the "World's First Flying Saucer. " Each hour on the hour during the 11-day run of the show (today through Jan. 18), this 17-foot-diameter cross between a blimp and a helicopter will rotor out of its stall above the Civic Center's main showroom.

When Bigfoot and its fellow monster machines roll into the Spectrum this weekend, the shows will be as ear-splitting as a heavy-metal concert, as packed with the potential for sudden violence as a hockey game, and as American as leaving a patch of rubber on the road. "If you had to boil it down to its essence," says Stephen Greenberg, the promoter of the U.S. Hot Rod Truck Championships, "what we're selling is power. People picture themselves stuck in traffic behind the wheel of Bigfoot.

STRANGE DAYS WITH BOB SAGET. 10 tonight, A&E. ANYONE WHO still confuses Abington's Bob Saget with "Full House's" Danny Tanner probably needs to check out the comedian's cameos on HBO's "Entourage," during which he plays a version of himself more in line with his standup act than "TGIF. " Whether that's the "real" Saget is anyone's guess. Mine, based on sightings from "Entourage" to "America's Funniest Home Videos," with stops off for a couple of best-forgotten sitcoms, is that Saget's a performer, and that like most of us, he prefers to stay employed.

Bob France. Mountain man. Lives in a log cabin with a stockade gate to keep the world at bay. Snares snakes for fun. The woods and its denizens are as familiar to him as the calluses on his hands. Then one day Bob France went into the dark and teeming woods, and familiarity slipped away. For he had entered another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. A dimension known as - Chestnut Ridge. This stretch of the Allegheny Mountain foothills, running from West Virginia up through Westmoreland and Indiana Counties, is Pennsylvania's Twilight Zone.

Working like a Bieber If we were Justin Bieber - and we're not - we might think twice before hitting Brazil again. First, he's seen sneaking into and out of a bordello. Tourism? Business? A mistake, his minders say - he thought it was a "private members club. " [Your comment here.] [We have no comment.] Next, he's hit by a fan-thrown water bottle during a São Paulo concert, storms off, comes back, moves on to Rio, and it's all muito bem . "Brazil goes hard," he tweeted. [Your comment here.]

In orchestra years, a conductor in his 30s is a mere toddler, still framing out basic concepts of cause and effect as he moves through the world. Yannick N?zet-S?guin is no toddler. He's 33, but already he has a sophisticated set of skills. The Montrealer, who made a Philadelphia Orchestra debut of considerable impact Thursday night, has the full concept of ensemble control under his belt. With some gorgeous phrase-shaping and meticulously detailed dynamics, he put a personal imprint on Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2. If he had to edge out the soloist a bit to make his point, well, at least the perspective was convincing - that this work can be heard as another Rachmaninoff symphony with regular visitations from the piano.

Christmas stockings are among the treasured symbols of the holiday season. In some families, they are heirlooms passed from generation to generation, with collections starting with a baby's first stocking. Stockings come in all shapes and sizes - big enough to contain a treasure of stuffers, or petite enough to serve as tree ornaments or hold flatware at the dinner table. A 17 1/2-inch-long stocking sold through Orvis this year unzips to expand for larger stuffers; it boasts a 10-inch-wide foot (www.

'Tis the season for the cable outfits and the networks to start plying us with all manner of holiday offerings. It's enough to make a kid cross-eyed by the time Santa shimmies down the chimney to do his thing. But with all the family stuff that has to get done between now and then, it's wise to pick your (viewing) spots. One good spot to land this weekend is "Big and Hairy," a "Showtime Original Pictures for All Ages" presentation airing at 8 p.m. Sunday. Tackling themes of loyalty, friendship, familial love, team spirit and other good stuff, "Big and Hairy" is the engaging tale of a boy and . . . his Sasquatch.

TIME TRAP IN OREGON WOODS PRIMED TO SPRING FOR PREY A one-of-a-kind Bigfoot trap built in the Oregon woods 18 years ago doesn't have bait anymore. But that doesn't mean people have stopped wondering about the legendary beast said to roam the Pacific Northwest. The trap was set up in the Rogue River National Forest near reported sightings of the gigantic hairy creature. And it was built to last. It outlasted its creators at North American Wildlife Research, a group bent on proving that Bigfoot existed.
