Dack Rambo, television actor best known for his role as Jack Ewing, cousin of the notorious J.R. on the popular series "Dallas," has died. He was 53. Rambo died Monday at Delano Regional Medical Center near the San Joaquin town of Earlimart, where he grew up, and where he had a ranch. He had resigned from his last role, as congressman Grant Harrison on NBC's daytime soap opera "Another World" in 1991, saying that he had tested positive for HIV and wanted to become a spokesman for AIDS patients.

The 16-year-old Mendelssohn's incredible Octet is ample proof that he--not Mozart, not Schubert, not Rossini--was probably the greatest child genius composer. Despite its difficulties, musicians relish a chance to play the Octet--as eight string players from the Los Angeles Philharmonic Chamber Music Society evidently did at the University of Judaism's Gindi Auditorium Monday night.

Acrophobia, the blues, addictions to carbs and shopping: In "Beanstalk!, A Tall Tale," the overstuffed retelling of "Jack and the Beanstalk" at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank, every character has a problem. Jack (Matt Johnson), a pizza delivery boy who fears heights, loses his job when an order comes in from an old paint factory, because it's only accessible via a towering ladder. Jack's mom (Marcia Strassman), a pie maker, is about to be fired because she's lost her will to bake.

Jack's Placita, a colorful Broadway bar and restaurant known for its fried shrimp specials, pre-noon cocktails and more recently, the discovery of two bodies in the freezer, is under investigation by city zoning officials. Neighboring merchants have asked a city zoning administrator to order that the beer hall-like eatery at 327 S. Broadway clean up its act or shut its doors.

In a city that has a flair for murder with an ironic twist comes the strange case of Jack's Placita: Jack's is a cavernous beer hall on Broadway in downtown Los Angeles, where polyester-clad crooners sing in Spanish and the decor consists primarily of posters of bikini-clad beach bunnies hoisting Coronas to their sun-kissed lips. It is a place not likely to be found in the newest Guide Michelin.

On a recent trip to a local Alpha Beta, 66-year-old Klara Leviant surveyed the dairy section with surprise. "You mean you can buy cottagecheese?" she marveled in her native Russian. "I've always made it!" Leviant, who moved to the United States from the Ukraine about five months ago and now lives in West Hollywood, was one of several Soviet women taking a tour of the supermarket under the direction of Klava Cousin, a West Hollywood registered dietitian.

You are a child returning from adventures with a lion and a witch in the magical land of Narnia when you tumble out of a wardrobe and you're staring at the secretary of the English department at Westmont College. Alternatively, you might pop out of a wardrobe and into a research library at Wheaton College outside Chicago, gaping at a clutch of C.S. Lewis scholars who, of course, would be gaping back at you. That's how fantasy works.

Once Patrick Burrows gets talking about Cornish pasties, he can entertain you for hours. That's just what he did at the Totally Pasty Dinner he recently gave as a fund-raiser for his church, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Santa Monica. Whenever pasties are the topic, he'll recite at least one corny old saying about them. For example: "You can beat an egg, you can beat a carpet, but you can't beat a good Cornish pasty." OK, so it sounds silly.

Nonchalance is not an option when making your Carnegie Hall debut. Just ask 15-year-old Sarah Crespo-Szabo. "I'm so nervous my hands are shaking," the percussionist confides to a cellist moments before the Santa Monica High School Symphony walks onstage. Crespo-Szabo and her 78 orchestra mates had spent months preparing for this moment, and, typical teenagers, many wanted to seem blase.
