Will Rogers would have loved the idea. After all, the cowboy humorist, dead these many years, had never met a showman (or showwoman) he didn't like. Here was an oversize mailer, designed as a striking period piece: A re-created Saturday Evening Post cover . . . a pencil and wash drawing of a smiling, perplexed Rogers, lasso in one hand . . . inside, sketches of anatomically extended chorus girls, early Esquire style . . .

June 21, 1992 | DANA LEWIS, Dana Lewis is a writer based in Tokyo
It was spitting rain, but the lines formed early at the Shochiku Central Theater near the Ginza. By 11 a.m., it was standing room only for the opening of the hottest film property in the country, "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me." This David Lynch film, a prequel to his defunct television series detailing the last days of Laura Palmer, has found a far kinder audience than it did in Cannes, where reviews were decidedly mixed. Rather than screening to boos, the movie is a phenomenon in Japan.

Wearing a long tan duster, black hat, leather pants and a shirt cut to the navel (gunfighting is such hot work), a young woman named Ellen rides into the dusty Western town of Redemption with repartee on her mind. An oafish local croaks "You're pretty" and gets "You're not" as a reply. He tries "I need a woman" only to be trumped by "You need a bath." No wonder they're calling this "The Quick and the Dead."
