Will Gabor's body be preserved after death?

LOS ANGELES /*Frederic von Anhalt*/ told reporters on Friday that he plans to file a lawsuit against the New York Post for reporting the story.

"To plastinate my wife, this is so sick. My wife is alive," he said. "Those psychos at the New York Post they have nothing else to do but pick on me, they are going to be sued. I'm warning them they are going to be sued."

Von Anhalt slammed the Post for picking up the story from a German tabloid that quoted a doctor he has never talked to.

/*Gabor*/, who has been hospitalized several times in the past months, returned earlier this week to a hospital in Los Angeles after von Anhalt had found her unconscious.

He says his 93-year-old wife is doing much better.

"She's at home and she's recovering," he said. "She's doing much better day by day. Hopefully we're going to get her out of bed very soon."

The Hungarian-born actress's lengthy film career includes spots in a dozen films and television series, including John Huston's 1952 "Moulin Rouge" and the 1958 film noir "Touch of Evil" by Orson Welles.
