The Brothers Grimm show up in the first scenes of "Ever After" a bit confused and curious. Subtitled "A Cinderella Story," and despite castles, princes and glass slippers, contemporary sensibilities give this latest retelling of the fairy tale its revisionist wings. Since Mary Pickford first played the role in 1915, cinematic Cinderellas have embodied the role and place of women at the time. "Ever After" is no exception, reflecting the wrinkles in the current state of American feminism.

This is the unlikely story of how a public school finagled a movie-set house to make its dream library. The tale of the house from the film "Life as a House" is a sweet story of perseverance that bears some parallels to the plot line of the film. In the movie, terminally ill architect George Monroe, played by Kevin Kline, wants to build his dream house before he dies.

It's easy to see why King Kong fell for Fay Wray. Sixty-one years after the film's premiere, she's still a scrumptious, albeit slightly hard of hearing, little dumpling. Although her life's accomplishments include 77 feature films, three marriages, two kids, an autobiography and a couple of plays, she'll always be remembered as the lovesick gorilla's main squeeze. Does she resent it?

Dr. Pangloss, Voltaire's ardent believer in this best of all possible worlds, wouldn't be working as a tutor today. Oh my, no. He'd be here in Hollywood, rewriting the classics of world literature into sappily-ever-after movie scripts. The latest of these cinema sugar coatings is opening today, Disney's all-animated musical version of one of the saddest romances ever put to paper, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." It's a heartbreaking book; almost everybody dies.

Patt Morrison's attack on Disney's "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" ("These Stories Are Classics for a Reason," Calendar, June 21) demands a rebuttal--from a satisfied moviegoer who paid for his ticket, not a professional apologist for the studio or the industry.

Americans' ambivalence toward things British is nowhere more pronounced than at the movies. Like the 1999 theatrical reissue of Carol Reed's "The Third Man," the DVD release of David Lean's "Lawrence of Arabia" should jolt movie lovers into remembering the diverse virtues of classic English directors. For decades, Lean was denigrated as impersonal or middlebrow.

He saw her in the parking lot next to the Cirque du Soleil tent when their cars pulled up in tandem. Their eyes locked. It wasn't the usual she's cute/he's cute thing: There was a connection. After the performance, they spied each other again. He was with a friend but didn't feel comfortable pursuing the stranger. He never asked her name, her phone number, didn't see the license plate number. And he can't forget her. What's a '90s hopeless romantic to do?
