Joe Mantegna may not look like your standard-issue sex symbol, but women sure fell for him last year when he starred in the David Mamet film "House of Games." An erotic thriller set against a seedy underworld of card sharks and small-time hustlers, "House of Games" featured Mantegna as a debonair con man with a hard-boiled heart and an irresistible bedside manner.

December 9, 1990 | HILARY DE VRIES, Hilary de Vries is a Boston-based free-lance writer specializing in the arts.
HE IS, IN THE simplest terms, not a New Yorker. Reared in the shadow of Al Capone and schooled in Chicago-style realism, Joseph Anthony Mantegna is a counterpoint to the American tradition of celluloid heavies. Among the Brandos, Pacinos and De Niros, Mantegna is an actor's alternative to that brawling, Lower East Side Italian tough guy: a Pinteresque con man with a sharkskin suit and the soul of an ice pick.

Since Spenser is supposed to be a gifted cook as well as a private eye of almost mythicability, let's use a culinary metaphor to describe the newest attempt to translate the popular detective-novel character to the small screen: "Small Vices," debuting Sunday on A&E, is a souffle that rises beautifully at first but deflates as it reaches the critical moments in its cooking time. The story is taken from Robert B. Parker's novel of the same name, which Parker himself has adapted.

One of the fondest dreams of people who stage plays in Los Angeles is that success on the boards will translate into a movie, but it doesn't happen that often. David Mamet's "Lakeboat" is one of the few plays in recent years to successfully navigate the difficult journey from stage to screen. An outstanding production of L.A.'s 1994 theater season, this early work by the playwright-screenwriter was directed at the Tiffany Theatre by longtime Mamet associate, actor Joe Mantegna.
