George C. Scott, the raspy-voiced actor whose explosive performances powered such films as "Patton" and energized the apocalyptic satire "Dr. Strangelove," died Wednesday in his Westlake Village home of natural causes. He was 71. A brilliant actor but reluctant star who refused to accept the Oscar in 1971 for his portrayal of the larger-than-life Gen. George S. Patton Jr.

Multiple sclerosis patients may soon have a new drug that is nearly as effective as the recently approved beta-interferon but has far fewer side effects. Preliminary results from a clinical trial show that the drug, called copolymer one, reduces flare-ups of the disabling disease by nearly one-third, the drug's discoverer said Sunday at an MS symposium at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Hugh Jackman may not be returning to host the Oscars, but there still could be plenty of singing and dancing at the 2010 Academy Awards. Only this time, the musical routines are likely to involve a banjo. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Tuesday that Steve Martin and "30 Rock" star Alec Baldwin would serve as dual emcees of the 82nd annual Academy Awards, scheduled to be held March 7 at the Kodak Theatre. In a year when the academy is expanding its best-picture nominees from five to 10 films, many expected that Oscar producers Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman would be contemplating ways to shake up the telecast, starting with the host.

That show was critically acclaimed and low-rated, and it never won the Emmy as the big kahuna of comedy.

Three great examples of post-World War I German Expressionist cinema are out today from Kino on Video: "Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler" ($40), "Warning Shadows" and "Asphalt" (both $30). The two-disc "Dr. Mabuse" is the authorized version of Fritz Lang's 1922 masterwork that was restored in 2000 using two existing camera negatives. It's not only the longest version available -- clocking in at 4 1/2 hours -- it also comes closest to Lang's original vision.
