It's crowded at the beach. Actors Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have listed their Malibu beach house for $14,749,000 — joining about 50 other homes priced at $10 million or more in the coastal city. Entered through a gated, landscaped courtyard, the Balinese-inspired house backs up to sand dunes and the ocean. The 4,300-square-foot house, built in 1978, was redesigned and renovated in 2005. It has a screening room, an office and a detached guest/meditation room. The master suite features floor-to-ceiling windows and a beachfront balcony for a total of four bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms.

It should come as no surprise that dreams do in fact come true in "Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story," a classic underfilly tale about a girl, her horse and the family farm they bet against when dad Ben (Kurt Russell) accepts an injured racehorse as partial severance after getting himself fired from his job as a horse trainer.

The plaid pants did it. And the moment during a practice when Herb Brooks barked an order to his players, hitched up his shoulder and skated away. Sitting in a screening room in Burbank, alone except for my memories and a predisposition to dislike Walt Disney Pictures' "Miracle" for dramatizing an event that needed no theatrical enhancement, I gasped, shaken more deeply than I'd expected.

The great radio monologist Jean Shepherd liked to say that the only truth to be found on television was in sports, because only in sports could the good guys end up losing. But not always. Sometimes the good guys actually win. In the 1980 Winter Olympics, if you were an American or in fact any nationality except Russian, the good guys won big.
