Prosecutors have refused to charge a tabloid photographer arrested after Barbra Streisand and husband James Brolin complained they were being stalked. Wendal Wall, 28, a Streisand neighbor arrested Saturday and held in lieu of $1-million bail, was released from the Malibu jail Tuesday after the Los Angeles County district attorney's office ruled "prosecution declined."

As an executive producer of "Cheatin' Hearts," I have got to defend not only this film but all other carefully made, low-budget independent films that are the hopes and dreams of their totally committed writer-directors (" 'Cheatin' Hearts': An Achy Breaky Story," July 9). Defend them from reviewers that run amok over newsprint.

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 premise of an innocent protagonist accidentally stumbling across some kind of devilish cult has driven all sorts of creepy films: "Rosemary's Baby," "Race With the Devil," "Harvest Home," "The Wicker Man," "All the President's Men," et al. To that frightful list do not by any stretch of imagination add "Nightmare on the 13th Floor," a pathetically unspooky TV movie airing at 9 tonight on cable's USA Network.
