Hillary Rodham Clinton returned to Washington early Wednesday night with an unusual knickknack she had picked up earlier in the day in Manhattan. The first lady won a Grammy for "It Takes a Village," her recorded reading of her book on child rearing that was judged to be the year's best spoken word or nonmusical album. "I'm amazed," she said, dressed in a gold lace overlay and a flowing green skirt backstage at Madison Square Garden.

If you've seen any of a hundred movies about star-crossed lovers, the fate awaiting the titular teens in "David & Fatima" can be predicted from the start. Still, this journey of David (Cameron Van Hoy), an idealistic Israeli Jew who falls for the gentle Fatima (Danielle Pollack), a Palestinian Muslim, is an earnest, reasonably absorbing drama, particularly in its first half.

"It WAS one of those wonderful phone calls," Robby Benson says, recalling February when producer Larry Mortoff dialed him up and asked if he wanted to direct "Billy: The Early Years," a new film about evangelist Billy Graham being released in late October. "It's why so many people are in show business. Because, mostly, you don't get the good phone calls." It wasn't always this way.

The Tiffany Theaters are being resurrected, at least briefly. The twin 99-seat Sunset Strip theaters closed in 2002 because the building that houses them was to be demolished as part of a mixed-use real estate development. That's still the plan, but the wrecking ball isn't expected until next year. So the developer of the proposed Sunset Millennium project, Apollo Real Estate Advisors, is donating the use of the Tiffany spaces to the Actors Studio for at least the rest of 2004.
