In the new film "The Musketeer," Mena Suvari lives the life of a fairy-tale princess. In this retelling of Alexandre Dumas' classic "The Three Musketeers," Suvari plays an orphaned girl who is swept off her feet by the heroic D'Artagnan, played by Justin Chambers. Tim Roth, the villain, then snatches her, and she must be rescued from the tower of a 17th century castle, where she is the bait to lure the hero for the final showdown. "I'm almost like Rapunzel, who lets her hair down for the prince to save her," Suvari says with a laugh and shaking her golden locks.

Richard Lester changed the cinematic language of the movie musical with his off-the-wall comic sensibilities and frenetic visual style in the Beatles' 1964's "A Hard Day's Night" and 1965's "Help!" even winning an MTV Music Award two decades later honoring him as the "father of music videos. " His swinging 1965 comedy "The Knack ... and How to Get It," with Michael Crawford, won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Lester also managed to avoid being typecast as a comedic director, showing a more sensitive dramatic side in the quirky 1968 romance "Petulia" with Julie Christie and George C. Scott.

Put a slash through The Streak. Rain wasn't the only thing coming down during Moorpark High's 33-0 victory over Carpinteria in a Southern Section Division X semifinal football game Friday night at Moorpark. The Musketeers ended a losing streak of 51 games against Carpinteria, beating the Warriors for the first time since 1934. "The streak is dead," Moorpark Coach Ron Wilford said. "There is a God in Moorpark." There is also a defense.

LONE PINE, Calif. - Oral histories of Native Americans and U.S. Cavalry records offer insights into a horrific massacre here in 1863: Thirty-five Paiute Indians were chased into Owens Lake by settlers and soldiers to drown or be gunned down. But the records are silent on one important point. Exactly where did the massacre occur on the moonlit night of March 19, 1863? An archaeological find in what is today a vast alkali playa has revealed a cache of bullets, musket balls, cavalry uniform buttons and Native American artifacts that Paiute tribal members and researchers believe are evidence of the grim chapter in Owens Valley history.

Third-seeded Baylor did enough to shake off a fight-to-the-finish Xavier squad, 75-70, in Friday night's Sweet 16 matchup at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. The Bears will advance to their second Elite Eight in three seasons, where on Sunday they will face No. 1 Kentucky. Xavier wasn't easy to dismiss, despite Baylor's opening 14-2 lead that eventually extended to an 18-point advantage. The Musketeers closed to within three points with only 23 seconds to play, but Baylor hung on thanks to the dominant play of senior forward Quincy Acy. "They really kept fighting," Baylor Coach Scott Drew said.

GEOFF BOUCHER missed a key point in his dissection of the machinations against director Richard Donner by producers Alexander and Ilya Salkind on "Superman II" ["The Cape Crusader," Nov. 26]. "The Godfather" films were not models that the Salkinds were looking at while deciding to film two Superman movies simultaneously. Rather, it was their "The Three Musketeers" and "The Four Musketeers," both of which were filmed in 1973 as one long epic and later split into two films and released a year apart.

Fess up, "MasterChef" fans. How many times? As in, how many times did you find yourself choking back tears (or, perhaps, rolling your eyes) during the two-hour debut of Season 4 of the prime-time show that puts the home cook center stage. Sure, the winner of this reality show competition walks away with $250,000 (cash, we are led to believe) but you can't help but get the idea that the men and women seriously vying for the title would do it all for free. PHOTOS: Hollywood backlot moments Like everyone, they're just looking for validation for their all-encompassing passion.

A historic chateau in Bearn, a French province in the Pyrenees mountains, is on the market for 645,000 euros or roughly $845,000 at late April conversion rates. The location served as a watch tower in the 9 th century and later belonged to the family of Catherine d'Espaloungue de Rague, mother of musketeer Henri  d'Aramitz, who lived in the 1600s. He was the inspiration for Alexander Dumas' character Aramis in “The Three Musketeers.” With about 5,275 square feet of livable space, the property includes a main house, a barn and a caretaker's house on 2.3 acres with views of the mountains.

West Virginia Mountaineer mascot Jonathan Kimble, who famously appears in an ESPN commercial staring down football analyst Lee Corso, has been told to stop using his musket on hunting excursions after killing a black bear on Monday. "While Jonathan Kimble's actions broke no laws or regulations, the university has discussed this with him, and he agrees that it would be appropriate to forego using the musket in this way in the future,” university spokesman John Bolt said. Kimble says that hunting with the musket is a Mountaineers' mascot tradition.

Caffey was one of five players in double figures for the 49ers (6-5), who handed the No. 14 Musketeers (8-2) their second consecutive loss since a brawl Dec. 10 against Cincinnati that resulted in the suspension of four players. Long Beach State used aggressive defense and kept heavy pressure on Xavier's star point guard, Tu Holloway, who returned from a one-game suspension and scored 17 points.

"Paranormal Activity 3" vanquished the box-office ghosts this weekend, taking in a whopping $54 million upon its premiere in the U.S., according to studio estimates. The other two new films in wide release this weekend, however, flopped. An expensive 3-D version of "The Three Musketeers" grossed a disappointing $8.8 million. And "Johnny English Reborn," a comedy starring British comedian Rowan Atkinson, did not resonate with American audiences. While the film is a hit overseas, it collected a weak $3.8 million in the U.S. this weekend.

Offensively, Moorpark knew it had to keep its options open and then adjust based on Newbury Park's defensive formations. "We can run and we can pass," Musketeers senior tailback Austin Edmonson said. "Fortunately, today we ran more than we passed." Defensively, Moorpark knew it had to limit the running game of Notre Dame-bound Cameron Roberson . "We knew if we stopped Roberson, we would win the game," Moorpark senior linebacker Marc Palacios said. "That was our mentality."

Whatever your relationship (ardent, platonic, nonexistent) to the Alexandre Dumas story about Athos, Porthos, Aramis and the lion-hearted musketeer intern, D'Artagnan, there's a word for the latest screen edition of "The Three Musketeers": Whatthehell? Seriously: What the hell? Those who favored the callous aggravations of the recent Guy Ritchie-directed "Sherlock Holmes," a film without which "The Three Musketeers" would be unthinkable, may forgive the grating, chaotic brand of storytelling and filmmaking here more easily than I. The director, Paul W.S. Anderson, brings to this costume party the same battering-ram sensibility he brought to "Alien Versus Predator," "Death Race" (which I liked, actually)
