Gary Graver, who was Orson Welles' final cinematographer and waged a decades-long campaign to complete the celebrated director's final film, "The Other Side of the Wind," has died. He was 68. Graver died Thursday at his Rancho Mirage home after a long battle with cancer, said his wife, Jillian Kesner-Graver. "He was a maverick cameraman who could do anything," Curtis Harrington, a director who made "Usher" (2002) with Graver, told The Times on Saturday.

"The budget to complete 'The Other Side of the Wind' is $3.5 million. That includes all post-production, sound, music, etc. It can be purchased and finished for that amount. That's not much money for the film that book-ends 'Citizen Kane.' But it seems 'Freddie Got Fingered' and 'Jackass: The Movie' come first." Veteran cinematographer and filmmaker Gary Graver is sounding off in his Studio City backyard.

Christie's has withdrawn a 1941 Oscar won by Orson Welles for co-writing "Citizen Kane" from its entertainment memorabilia auction on Friday. The statuette, valued at $300,000 to $400,000, was the centerpiece of the event, to be held in New York. The action was taken after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences claimed the right to buy back the statue for $1. The rest of the sale will proceed as planned, the New York Times reports.

If you've seen one too many drug-war thrillers, one too many movies pitting a few good guys against a hundred villains, one too many chase scenes near or on Hollywood Boulevard; and one too many movies where a hero is tortured unremittingly by sadistic hoodlums, thereby justifying a climax of wholesale carnage--than you know what to expect from "Commando Squad" (citywide). That's exactly what it is: one too many.

The highlight of the two-disc set of "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" (Paramount, $35) is the clever, tongue-in-cheek audio track between director Brad Silberling and the "real" Mr. Snicket -- author Daniel Handler. The other extras -- covering every aspect of the production -- are entertaining and informative.

After three decades and only brief brushes with film fame, actor Norbert Meisel needed a few more minutes on celluloid to qualify for Screen Actors Guild health-care benefits. So Meisel said he appeared in some promotional shorts produced by a friend in Studio City, projects titled "Going Hollywood," "All of My Funerals," "Evil Spirits" and "Naked Forces." Those acting roles qualified Meisel, now 71, for insurance.

Judging by the dozens of long and short videos on display at the American Film Institute's 1994 National Video Festival (starting tonight at 7 and continuing through Sunday at various venues on the AFI campus), what videomakers currently seem interested in are the facts. Or at least, their version of the facts.
