Tonight's "Beverly Hills, 90210" episode largely departs from tales of dating, shopping and teen-age Angst to give its version of a disquieting event of a year ago that drew national attention: Banning High School's refusal to play a football game against Dorsey following shootings at Dorsey's stadium. "The events surrounding Dorsey and Banning really saddened me," said Charles Rosin, the executive producer of Fox's popular drama (airing at 8 p.m., Channels 11 and 6).

Interesting article on the film industry and how most of it is going to Canada ("Oh No, Canada," by E.D. Maytum, Jan. 9). Has Maytum ever thought that maybe Vancouver offers a more friendly environment for these productions, one that includes an exchange rate of almost 50% on the dollar, reasonable union rates, beautiful scenery (so it rains a bit!) and provincial tax incentives to the production companies? Has Maytum ever thought that maybe these productions might not even have happened if they hadn't been filmed up north?

The fascination with "Beverly Hills, 90210," Fox-TV's one-hour drama about life among affluent teens, has already landed Luke Perry, Shannen Doherty and Jason Priestly on the covers of People, Us and Entertainment Weekly magazines. But will the three hearttrobs land in the movies? Not anytime soon. Perry, Doherty and Priestley, all twentysomething, are perfectly happy with the first big breaks of their careers, thank you very much.

The Scene: Thursday's premiere of New Line Cinema's "The Mask" at the Motion Picture Academy. A high-energy party followed in the lobby of a nearby defunct S&L. (The setting was chosen because a bank plays a major part in the film.) Star Jim Carrey called the special effects-packed movie an ode to Looney Toons cartoonist Tex Avery. Director Charles Russell said: "Think of it as a romantic comedy that's a little hyperactive."

It's a given that "Rolling Stone 25: The MTV Special" (tonight at 10) is going to be fairly flattering and self-aggrandizing, with one corporate, post-counterculture rock 'n' roll institution saluting another.

Meryl Streep ran a bowling game. Annette Bening took charge at the ring toss. Shaquille O'Neal instructed kids at basketball. Debbie Allen taught dance. Michelle Pfeiffer and Sandy Koufax took turns heading up a baseball game booth. The casting didn't always make sense, but you can be sure that the annual Pediatric AIDS Foundation "A Time for Heroes" fund-raiser Sunday afternoon was not your ordinary country fair.
