For decades, biographers have battled over the facts of a life that, in any telling, seemed too incredible to be true. Was Warner Bros. action hero Errol Flynn a Nazi? A bisexual drug addict? Or merely the greatest adventure star the movies ever produced?

Re Susan King's article "The Greatest Stories Ever Told, or So Say the Posters" (May 14): The "one-sheet" is indeed the most common size of U.S. film poster, but it is not 11x14 inches in size as the article states; 11x14 is the approximate size for lobby cards. One-sheets are generally 27x40, though they were slightly larger during the era under discussion, when they were still printed with borders. PHIL AYLING Hacienda Heights Author Lawrence Bassoff claims that in "Hercules Unchained" the hero never pushes the walls apart, as depicted in the poster.

Imagine "Faust" transposed to contemporary Malibu, and you'll have a rough idea of what Lawrence Bassoff's sunny and amusing "Hunk" (citywide) is like. Few are the men who haven't identified with Charles Atlas' proverbial 97-pound weakling who gets sand kicked in his face when he goes to the beach. But instead of sending away for a body-building course or joining a gym, nice but nerdy computer hack Bradley Brinkman (Steve Levitt) succumbs to the shortcut of selling his soul to the devil.

ovie scholars say the last film noir was released in 1959, but a raft of contemporary directors probably begs to differ: "Red Rock West," "Reservoir Dogs," "The Last Seduction," "One False Move" and "Traveller" are but a few recent releases that rework the tenets of film noir, a style that shows no sign of disappearing.

"Turbulent, Thrill-Shot Spectacle . . . Big Enough for Two Pictures," screams the headline from the poster for the 1935 Cecil B. DeMille epic "The Crusades." "MGM's Mighty Romantic Adventure! Lovers Trapped in Animal Stampede!" shouts the main tag line for the 1950 classic African adventure "King Solomon's Mines." "I am Temujin . . . Barbarian . . . I fight! I love! I conquer . . . like a Barbarian!"

The following listing of movies planned for 1987 release is divided into four time zones: Coming Soon (the January-February period), Spring (March through mid-May), Summer (mid-May to September) and Fall-Winter (September through Christmas). At the tail end of the listing are several films that as yet have no play dates. Many of the names and dates will change--and some of these movies may go directly from production to cable television or videocassette or someone's shelf.
