"I was known as the Girl in the Window because no one knew who I was." The Girl in the Window--a haunting, painterly image of mystery, loneliness, perhaps tragedy, someone needing to be rescued. A fairy-tale figure. The girl, whose name is Nickcole Collins, is no longer in the window, which overlooked one of Chicago's most notorious housing projects, the Henry Horner Homes, once synonymous with drug dealing and gang-banging.

The film gathered dust for decades, a silent, 28-minute documentary titled "Navaho Boy: The Monument Valley Story," about a Navajo family whose home was the backdrop for one of John Wayne's most famous Westerns. Years later, non-Indian filmmakers traveled to the land of otherworldly stone promontories to locate the people and stories behind the blurry, Technicolor images.

On the island of Malta in the Mediterranean Sea, Hollywood is building a submarine. When completed, the 400-ton, full-sized U-boat won't be able to dive beneath the water's surface, but it will withstand 9-foot seas and serve as the centerpiece in producer Dino DeLaurentiis' "U-571," a World War II thriller about U.S. forces who try to steal a top-secret decoding device from a German sub.

It was called "I.B. Tech" by aficionados and "glorious Technicolor" by everyone else who worshiped its breathtaking colorful brilliance until it faded from use in the mid-1970s. Now Technicolor has brought back its vaunted imbibition (or I.B.) printing process, more appropriately called "dye-transfer," at least on a sporadic basis. Even today, when it's more of a novelty, we're still wowed by new Technicolor dye-transfer prints of "Any Given Sunday," "Toy Story 2" and the restored "Rear Window."

Not even the Sexiest Man Alive could lure moviegoers to the box office this weekend. On the the slowest weekend at the multiplex thus far this year, "The Words," a new film starring Bradley Cooper -- deemed by People magazine to be the most attractive man in 2011 -- debuted to lackluster ticket sales. The weekend winner was "The Possession," the horror flick that topped the box office over the Labor Day holiday. The film collected an additional $9.5 million, according to an estimate from distributor Lionsgate, raising its overall total to a solid $33.3 million.

A 3-D version of “Finding Nemo” was expected to dominate the box office upon its debut, but the animated film sank to the runner-up position at the multiplex this weekend. Instead, “Resident Evil: Retribution,” the fifth installment in the popular Milla Jovovich science-fiction thriller franchise, claimed the No. 1 position. However, both films missed industry projections. Pre-release audience polling had suggested that “Retribution” would take in around $27 million during its first weekend in theaters, but Sony Pictures estimated that the film actually opened with a decent $21.1 million.

A budding folk singer's struggle to connect with fans is at the heart of Joel and Ethan Coen's latest film, "Inside Llewyn Davis," their historically informed story of a musician trying to find his way in the Greenwich Village folk music scene circa 1961. Off the screen, however, Davis has already won some big fans in the music business who are delighted in those rare instances when music and musicians take the center stage on screen. "From our standpoint at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we love movies like that because they really make people take a look at where the current music they listen to comes from," said Rock Hall of Fame Foundation President Joel Peresman.
