Gilbert, 71, is one of Britain's most highly regarded film directors. The former child actor has been in movies for 66 years, 40 as a director.

It's a weary group staring at what can only be described as a legless limo. The top half of the black car sits in a processing house deep in Brooklyn, and it poses a problem that has kept Susan Sarandon, Jude Law, director Charles Shyer and others waiting for hours. They are in their final days of filming a remake of "Alfie," and the mirror that was custom-made to aid in shooting the action in the limo's back seat isn't working. Now they have to rig up a replacement.

"Stepping Out" (at the Beverly Connection and the AMC Century 14) is a heartwarming, spirit-lifting drama with comedy, music and dance that's just perfect for Liza Minnelli--and nine other splendid actresses.
