Prosecutors have refused to charge a tabloid photographer arrested after Barbra Streisand and husband James Brolin complained that they were being stalked. Wendal Wall, 28, a Streisand neighbor who was arrested Saturday and held on $1 million bail, was released from the Malibu jail Tuesday after the district attorney's office ruled "prosecution declined." Deputy Dist. Atty. Martin L.

In Warner Bros.' upcoming action drama "The Gangster Squad," based on a series of Los Angeles Times articles, Josh Brolin plays John O'Mara, a Los Angeles police officer in an elite unit devoted to cleaning up the city's criminal element, specifically targeting a mobster operation run by Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) — the movie's ensemble cast also features Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, Giovanni Ribisi and Anthony Mackie, among others. Brolin learned a lot about the film's 1940s setting from his father, actor James Brolin, and from stories he read about the real-life officers of the era. "These guys were pretty brutal back then," he said recently, sitting outside City Hall, where he was shooting scenes for the Warner Bros.

The recent Los Angeles run of "I'll Eat You Last," starring Bette Midler as the late talent agent Sue Mengers, drew a fair number of Hollywood stars to the Geffen Playhouse -- some of whom actually knew Mengers during her heyday in the '70s as a Tinseltown power broker. Among the most notable faces in the Geffen audience was Barbra Streisand, who was one of Mengers' most important clients and is a key point of reference in the play. Streisand attended a recent performance of "I'll Eat You Last" with her husband, James Brolin, according to the actress-singer's publicist.

"Lies & Alibis" isn't as jaunty as its title and dilutes a serviceable premise for a mild diversion that just lapses into confusion. Directors Matt Checkowski and Kurt Mattila and writers Noah Hawley and Collin Friesen work up more complications than they and their ensemble cast, boasting a surprisingly large number of name players, can handle.

Next up is the 1977 cult fave "Kingdom of the Spiders," starring William Shatner as a vet whose Arizona town is being overrun by some nasty tarantulas.

Prime time could do a lot worse than a soap opera renaissance. But CBS newcomer "Angel Falls" won't remind anyone of seductive "Dallas" or "Dynasty." Premiering at 10 tonight on Channels 2 and 8, it isn't artful enough even to be amiable corn. Although it wastes no time plowing into misery and setting the table for sexual action, its plodding characters and the laborious pace of their story are a good bet to leaden your lids.

"The Master of Disguise" sounds as if it should be a natural for Dana Carvey, who has created a gallery of hilarious characters and impersonations on "Saturday Night Live" and elsewhere. But even his protean talent can't dent this ponderously unfunny and uninspired comedy.

The producer of "Ted & Venus" (at the Royal) has called it the "spiritual sequel" of "Harold and Maude." Ironically, Bud Cort was as appealing in that the milestone comedy as he is repellent in this film, which suffers seriously from a discernible point of view--and which also marks his directorial debut.

Maybe it's the recession, but Sidney Sheldon's "The Sands of Time" (tonight and Tuesday on KTLA-TV Channel 5 at 8 p.m.) lacks the gaudy extravagance customarily associated with TV adaptations of Sheldon's romance novels. Most of this four-hour miniseries, top-lining Michael Nouri and Deborah Raffin, seems to be spent in the woods of rural Spain. But Sheldon fans have come to expect more than this.
