The deteriorating effects of early onset Alzheimer's disease are explored, with absorbing results for the most part, in "Forget Me Never," a poignant CBS drama inspired by actual events.

The city is beside itself. This can't be happening. Not him . Not Woody Allen. He seemed like such a nice Jewish boy, deep down.

A judge Monday ordered Mia Farrow's lawyers to give him details of her tentative book deal and an update of her net worth so he can decide whether Woody Allen should pay her legal fees.

Sladkus also argued that Farrow has a $3-million deal with Doubleday-Dell for an autobiography.

Testifying under sharp cross-examination, Woody Allen said Monday that at one point he told Mia Farrow he had ended his affair with her 22-year-old adopted daughter while he really was "in constant contact" with her "five or six times a day."
