An amusing incident occurs the day before an interview with Brittany Murphy. Actor Justin Long, one of her pals and her red-carpet date for this year's MTV Movie Awards, has agreed to talk about this young actress, who finds her star rising in three prominent fall movies ("Sidewalks of New York," "Don't Say a Word," "Riding in Cars With Boys"). But sitting on the patio at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, Long becomes momentarily confused.

Another misty day in Brittany and no way to spend my big wad of francs. All I could do was drink Campari for 20 cents a shot, bicycle through the medieval lanes of this ancient walled city, jog atop the great stone ramparts, wade into the English Channel, play low-roller games in the casino, chow down cheap cre^pes or quenelles, board the mini-train at the city gates or take the sea shuttle to the posh resort town of Dinard.

Easy. That's how Brittany Lincicome described her six-under-par 66 Thursday in the first round of the $2-million Kraft Nabisco Championship at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage. Stacy Lewis described her afternoon of golf a little differently. Lewis actually made a bogey in the 100-degree heat and had to step up and make a six-foot putt to save that bogey. But then came a stretch of three straight birdies and so, like Lincicome, Lewis also shot a 66. That puts the sometime roommates and frequent dinner companions together in the lead after the first round of the LPGA's first major of the season.

The essence of much effective horror is an ability to tap into the churning fears of a moment in time. The low-budget, grimly realized "Would You Rather" is explicit about this approach, introducing us to a young woman (Brittany Snow) in dire financial straits with a terminally ill brother to care for. She agrees to attend a dinner hosted by an eccentric, wealthy philanthropist (Jeffrey Combs, enjoying himself) who promises a form of help. Instead, she and seven other guests find themselves coerced into playing a cruel version of the titular game, predicated on committing atrocious acts upon one another (or oneself)

SAN DIEGO - The three people accused of killing a 22-year-old Marine wife were engaged in a sadistic sexual lifestyle that may be linked to her death, according to court documents released Wednesday. Detectives believe two of the defendants, a Marine and his girlfriend, may have sexually accosted Brittany Dawn Killgore before killing her, according to one document. Four search warrants, ordered released by an appeals court over the objections of the district attorney's office, provide an inside look at the unusual relationship involving Staff Sgt. Louis Perez, 45; Jessica Lopez, 25; and Dorothy Maraglino, 36, all charged with murder in connection with Killgore's slaying.

Just as France's holiday season reaches its peak, the carcasses of wild boars are appearing on Brittany's celebrated coastline, raising fear that a potentially lethal algae is at work that could threaten the health of humans as well. The bodies of more than 30 of the animals have been found in the sea or on the slimy, seaweed-covered beaches around the bay of Saint Brieuc, where some coastal areas have been sealed off. Environmentalists believe the potentially fatal algae is the result of a buildup of nitrates from fertilizers used by the region's farmers, many of whom raise pigs, seeping into the sea. July and August are the busiest months for France's seaside resorts as the country's schools close for vacation.

Yani Tseng of Taiwan shot her second consecutive four-under 68 on Friday, taking a four-shot lead after the second round of the Women's British Open at Southport, England. The American duo of Brittany Lincicome and Christie Kerr joined Amy Young of South Korea in the chase entering the weekend. "There was no wind this morning and it was very calm, so it was nice out there," said Tseng, who is trying to win her third major championship. "The course played totally different than what we played the last three days, so it was really nice."
