An unshaven gunman robbed a Center City bank of a bagful of 20s at lunchtime yesterday, then kidnapped at gunpoint the teller he had stuck up at the same bank earlier this month, police said. The rogue hailed a taxicab after the 12:30 p.m. stickup at the Continental Bank, 16th Street and JFK Boulevard, and escaped with his woman hostage and uncounted loot. The hostage teller was freed minutes later, unhurt. Detectives said they were investigating whether the gunman is the serial bank robber responsible for numerous Center City bank stickups.

Just last week, when the plane that tricksters Penn Jillette and his silent, one-named sidekick Teller were taking from Los Angeles to New York caught fire while on the ground, people thought it was part of their act. "Yeah, the plane blew up," Penn booms from Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, where he and Teller begin a weekend engagement tonight with comedian Paula Poundstone. "We got to use those slides, and as we got down on the ground, a dozen people were giving us credit for it. One of the firemen came over and said, 'Did you guys do this, or what?

Buried near the bottom of Penn and Teller's credits are some odd little gems: The two are Visiting Scholars at MIT - the highest honor bestowed by the school - and they've lectured at both the Smithsonian Institution and Oxford University. Now, all this academic stuff might seem strange to anyone who has seen this duo in action. After all, they're not known for pulling rabbits from hats, they're far more likely to produce a battalion of giant hissing Madagascar cockroaches, as they did once on "Late Night with David Letterman.

Michael Bertoline, 18, is not someone who forgets a face, especially the face of a man he thought had robbed him of $2,000 only a week earlier. Bertoline was only in his third week as a teller at the PSFS branch at Cottman Avenue and Rutland Street in Northeast Philadelphia when a man handed him a note and took off with the money from his cash drawer. Seven days later, Bertoline looked up and saw what looked like the same man in the bank. "I just calmed down and whispered to my supervisors that the same man who robbed me was in the building," he said in an interview yesterday.

AS BULLYING, hazing and corporal punishment are lawyered out of polite society, nagging doubts seep in. We wonder if children need more than a safe, flexible space that nurtures creativity and self-esteem. We wonder if they need discipline in some rigid form - high expectations, met with hard work. From this lagoon of cultural guilt crawl such creatures as the Tiger Mom, and now, in "Whiplash," one of the most vivid monsters in recent movie history - a jazz instructor, of all things.

A bank teller work-study program will be one of a number of new courses that will be made available to students by Eastern Regional High School for the 1988-89 school year. School board member Harvey Klein said the Glendale National Bank and the Howard Savings Bank, which both have branches within the school district, helped plan the program and will be participating. Other local banks may get involved, he said. "There's a need for this right here in our community," Klein said.

A man punched a teller at First Union Bank in the face, handcuffed her, then locked her in the vault before stealing more than $100,000 yesterday morning, Rockledge police said. According to police, the heist was the first of its kind in the borough in at least 25 years. Police said the masked man approached the teller about 9 a.m. as she was starting her shift in the drive-through annex of the bank on Huntingdon Pike. Police would not release the teller's name but said she had worked at the bank for about two years.

Customers would never grumble if their bank tellers were all like Linda Tomasetti of Beverly. The enthusiastic 24-year-old teller underscored why she likes her work and is so good at what she does when she finished second Nov. 13 in eliminations to choose the "super teller" from about 800 contestants in Chemical Bank New Jersey's statewide competition. Tomasetti, the head teller at the Palmyra Branch of Chemical Bank New Jersey, at Highland and Morgan Avenues, had earlier captured the Princeton territory division title.

THE THIRD SEASON of the NBC police drama "Chicago PD" starts tonight, and Jesse Lee Soffer , who plays Detective Jay Halstead, sat down with me yesterday to offer a sneak peek of what to expect. Soffer, who's been acting since he was 6 years old, had a smaller role in "Chicago Fire," playing an ambiguously dirty policeman. It's when producers on the show decided to make a spin-off based on the police department's perspective that they cast Soffer as a cop in the intelligence unit whose moral and ethical boundaries are a little muddled.

In a new ad campaign for Prada, the Italian fashion house, Miles Teller looks intense in a blue shirt and dark blazer. He is pulling a fancy fountain pen out of his breast pocket, scrawling something on the palm of his hand. The spread appeared last week in a glossy men's fashion magazine, part of a big Sunday newspaper. "I've got to send it to all my ex-girlfriends," Teller deadpans. All his exes? "Not that many," says the star of the Oscar-nominated best picture Whiplash and the mega-box-office Divergent series.

THREE BACHELORS make a wager to see which of them can best keep love at bay in "That Awkward Moment," and you'll never guess what happens next. Well OK you will, because in romantic comedies dating back to Shakespeare, such anti-love vows exist only to be defeated. The devil is in the details - how casting and chemistry can keep the movie ahead of audience expectations. Results vary in the mildly gross and R-rated "Awkward," with Zac Efron front and center as Jason, who boasts of having a "roster" of casual-sex attachments, and encourages his friends to follow suit.

This year's Sundance vision of the world - terrible, lean, bleak, demanding, a whole lot unfair, and maybe a little whimsical - was 30-30. It was a showcase for a generation of filmmakers coming into their 30s in an event that itself turned 30. The 110 films spread over 10 sections seemed to say, "Enough nonsense, here's what's really happening behind the curtain of American life. " So all you strivers out there in a depressed economy, take a look at Whiplash , written and directed by Damien Chazelle and one of the festival's opening set of four films.
