If you are looking for a cinematic way to celebrate Easter Sunday, why not catch a big-screen presentation of 1927's silent "The King of Kings"? H.B. Warner plays the title role, but the real star is director Cecil B. DeMille, the king of biblical epics. Picked as the best film about Jesus in a Time magazine poll, "The King of Kings" is notable for its early Technicolor resurrection scene. As the ads said, "Supreme in Theme, Gigantic in Execution." Live musical accompaniment by the Cabeza de Vaca Arcestra.

Controversy usually unfolds AFTER a playoff series starts. But it's already there, riding shotgun with the Kings and Sharks, who will be meeting for the third time in the postseason in the last four years. This all has to do with the knee-on-knee collision between Kings captain Dustin Brown and the Sharks' dynamic rookie Tomas Hertl on Dec. 19. Hertl, who required knee surgery, returned to action last week. Sharks fans haven't forgotten. Nor has Hertl, who told Bay Area reporters: "Playoff time, it's more important, because it's L.A. I not much like L.A. this season.

You knew it was just a matter of time before young undocumented immigrants began delivering cantaloupes to Rep. Steve King's Washington office. And on Thursday, three young students did just that -- while also asking to meet with him. And who can blame them after the Iowa Republican made odd and insulting claims about young immigrants who were brought illegally to the U.S. as children, suggesting that many of those so-called Dreamers are involved in...

There is one small downside to winning the William M. Jennings Trophy, according to Kings goalie Jonathan Quick. The Jennings award goes to "the goalkeeper(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against it. " It had never been won by a Kings' goalie and Quick won it outright when the Boston Bruins allowed three goals Sunday in their final game of the season, bringing their total to 177. Los Angeles allowed 174 goals this season. "The goalie is nominated to make the speech at the awards there, but the team gave up the least amount of goals in the league," Quick said on Saturday night.

In the end, they brought Michael Jackson to the one place where his life always made sense -- beneath a spotlight and in front of his adoring fans. The superstar, in a gleaming gold coffin, was celebrated in a Staples Center memorial service that was beamed around the world and, like the icon himself, strove mightily to be all things to all people.

The kernel of Betsy Carter's third novel, "The Puzzle King," is a powerful bit of family lore that takes up no more than a paragraph of her 2002 memoir, "Nothing to Fall Back On": the story of the time, in 1936, that her mother's German-born American aunt, Flora, traveled back to her native country to get dozens of her relatives out. The gift she brought for the American consul was a copy of that year's hottest book in the States, "Gone With the...

Re "Troubled dream," Opinion, May 18 Those who insist that only an African American should sculpt the bust of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. forget what the great civil rights leader said about the importance of being judged by "the content of (one's) character." I'm a white American, born 12 years after a sniper's bullet cut down King in Memphis, but I suspect that if King heard the suggestion that a Chinese artist was incapable of portraying an African American, he'd roll over in his grave.

There are worthwhile things to be said both for and against President Clinton, and such an article would be welcome. However, a list of unsubstantiated insults, as penned by King, is bigotry in action. The Times should be more responsible than to publish this kind of invective. FEROL H. GOOD Laguna Hills

It was a win. That was all that mattered to the Clippers. The intensity was lacking for the most part, but the Clippers still worked hard enough for a 117-101 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday afternoon at Staples Center. No one really expected the Clippers to play with the same passion against a Kings team going nowhere as they displayed Wednesday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder in a game that had playoff implications. "Certain games are a little tougher than others just because one team might not be playing for anything and one team might," said Blake Griffin, who led the Clippers with 27 points on nine-for-15 shooting and nine assists.

They paid tribute to his “class and charisma,” and the Kings sent Finnish icon Teemu Selanne of the Ducks off with a whimsical gift in a pregame ceremony honoring Selanne's career. A standup paddleboard. Selanne is not going off into the sunset on his board - where he can presumably hang with buddy and former teammate and avid surfer, Paul Kariya - just yet. BOX SCORE: Ducks 4, Kings 3 (SO) The Staples Center fans may not have seen the last of Selanne, who will be retiring after the season and did not play against the Kings on Saturday.

If the hockey gods had a sense of humor, they would have arranged for the Kings and the Ducks to play for the Pacific Division title Saturday at Staples Center. At the very least, they would have put one team in position to knock the other out of the playoffs. Alas, the hockey gods must have been busy elsewhere because they didn't leave much drama surrounding Saturday's game. The Kings have been locked into third place in the division for a while, certain that they will start on the road against the San Jose Sharks, likely on Wednesday.

Hockey fans will have to wait for the first-ever playoff series between the Kings and the Ducks, but a matchup between the Kings and the San Jose Sharks promises to be the next-best thing. The Ducks on Wednesday wiped out any chance of there being a local derby in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs by clinching first place in the Pacific Division when they powered past the San Jose Sharks for a 5-2 victory at the Honda Center. In winning, the Ducks assured themselves of the No. 1 or No. 2 seeding in the West -- they're a point ahead of St. Louis but the Blues have a game in hand -- and consigned the Sharks to second place in the Pacific and a matchup with the third-place Kings.

EDMONTON, Canada - Records, refining and an imminent retirement. The three Rs marked the Kings' final regular-season road game as they defeated the Edmonton Oilers, 3-0, on Thursday night at Rextall Place behind Marian Gaborik's three-point effort and the fourth shutout of the season for rookie goalie Martin Jones. Records were matched and others broken with the Kings' late-season tour of the also-rans in the Pacific Division ending, thankfully, as did their three-game losing streak.

Thank you for the article on Rodney King ["For Rodney King, it's AA to VH1," by Greg Braxton, Oct. 12]. Having had a spiritual awakening he is now going to be on a "reality" show. I guess if you can't be in reality you can at least act on TV in a reality show. My point is that the AA sponsor who suggested he break his anonymity and go public is not within the traditions of AA. But I guess it's OK for Rodney to blame anybody else rather than take responsibility. Just please don't make him out to be a hero for getting sober.

Wearing one glove, Michael Jackson reached into the pop culture zeitgeist and influenced an entire generation, giving pieces as simple as military badges and a fedora an imprint that, for a time, was as powerful as his music. At the height of his career in the mid-1980s, he was a fresh representation of how a male pop singer could look, with his perfectly chiseled face, long curls, white T-shirt, black pegged pants, white ankle socks and black loafers.

CALGARY, Canada - After 80 regular-season games, it is official: The Kings will be making their way to San Jose. That's where they will open the first round of the playoffs with many signs pointing to a Game 1 possibly Wednesday at San Jose. The drama in Anaheim with the Ducks beating the Sharks paved the way and set up the playoff matchups. At the same time, there was an uneven game going on at the Scotiabank Saddledome as the Calgary Flames won, 4-3, needing a shootout after the Kings rallied from a three-goal deficit.
