NOBODY crosses a room like Angelina Jolie. She cut a purposeful stride across the polished floor of a Hollywood Roosevelt suite, a feat especially impressive because she was doing it in 4-inch heels and a pencil skirt. It was noon on a warm November day, weeks before Jolie's restrained and moving portrayal of real-life journalist Mariane Pearl in "A Mighty Heart" would land her nominations for Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards.

IF you believe the tabloid press, or even if you don't, Angelina Jolie hasn't lacked for experiences in her life. However, her relationship with Mariane Pearl, widow of murdered Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, brought her in contact with something completely new. "It's the first time," the actress says, an indefinable expression crossing a face so striking it can be difficult to look at straight on, "I've had a friendship with a journalist."

In the city that swallowed up Daniel Pearl, a sense of menace still hangs as heavy as the sultry air. A high-profile new film has focused renewed attention on the case of the Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped and executed by Islamic insurgents here in 2002, and has underscored the fact that many questions remain unanswered.

LETTER writer Tamara Gregory [Letters, May 20] referred to the "racism and continued narrow-mindedness then and now throughout the entertainment community" that resulted in such indignities as casting white actor Laurence Olivier as a black character, Othello, on stage. A valid point to be sure. But she then went on to say that it brought to mind the recent casting of Angelina Jolie as Mariane Pearl, widow of slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. Gregory must have been surprised to read in Kenneth Turan's Cannes article ["Her Toughest Role," May 22]

Adult moviegoers may be craving a serious drama after overdosing on a steady diet of mindless sequels that has driven this year's box-office sales. But whether they'll rush out to see a sobering, ripped-from-the-headlines story set in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks remains an open question for the distributor of next Friday's release "A Mighty Heart."

CBS and NBC's news divisions accused ABC's "Good Morning America" of unseemly behavior Tuesday over the program's handling of the first TV interviews with Mariane Pearl following confirmation of the killing of her husband, Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. The Journal arranged for Mariane Pearl to speak to CNN and the BBC with the understanding that the interviews would air on those outlets first because both are seen in Pakistan.

American officials notified the widow and parents of journalist Daniel Pearl on Friday that a torso and a severed head recovered from a shallow grave by Pakistani police were almost certainly his. The remains were found in a garden nursery next to a small building where Pearl had apparently been held hostage on the outskirts of the southern port city of Karachi. The police chief of Sindh province, of which Karachi is the capital, said the body was significantly decomposed.

Daniel Pearl of the Wall Street Journal, whose death at the hands of Pakistani kidnappers was announced by the State Department on Thursday, was never a typical business reporter, not even in his earliest days at the country's premier business newspaper. As the Journal acknowledged in a story published five days after Pearl, 38, was kidnapped last month, "the laid-back amateur fiddler with a reputation for forgetfulness seemed an odd addition to a newspaper with a buttoned-down corporate image."
