I once asked Alfred Hitchcock what he thought of a certain actor, a man he had used in one of his films. In his splendid oracular way Hitchcock said, "He does nothing well," and waited for me to be satisfactorily startled, as I was indeed. The actor, Hitchcock explained, was wonderful in reaction. He listened and you could see what he was feeling; he was a fine actor when the lines were his but also when they belonged to someone else.

The persistently fascinating culture clashes endemic to British life in India surface once again in "The Peacock Spring." Adapted from Rumer Godden's novel, the story is a compelling look at the manner in which the two societies were still firmly interwoven in the late 1950s, a decade after Indian independence.
BUSINESS

The Oct. 19 stock market crash will shrivel the year-end bonuses paid to investment bankers but isn't likely to hurt executive income in other businesses, compensation experts say. Since most bonuses are tied to performance and profitability, which generally have been improving this year, the vast majority of recipients will get at least the same amount they did in 1986, interviews with a number of business consultants suggest.

Jim Barber is not that familiar with ocean swimming. After all, his hometown, Indianapolis, isn't exactly on the beach. But Barber had little trouble winning the 10-mile event Saturday at the Seal Beach Open Water Swim Championships. Barber and 22 other swimmers started at the Huntington Beach Pier, where he was the first to enter the 64-degree water. He took an immediate lead and continued to build on it.

Spectators rose to their feet and began cheering as Mark Rowley neared the shore. His 10-year-old son, Vince, went to meet him at water's edge, a pair of crutches in hand. The applause got louder as Rowley struggled out of the water and took the crutches from his son. "Oh my gosh, I can't believe it," a woman in the crowd said. "Look, that guy only has one leg." A fact many already knew as Rowley, 48, completed his 18th consecutive Seal Beach 10-mile Open Water Swim.

Peter Egan of Santa Monica won the Huntington Beach Open Pier Swim so easily Saturday that two-time defending champion Henry Wise attributed the victory to what he thought was Egan's world-class background. "He's a hot swimmer," Wise said. "He swam in the Olympics for New Zealand, I think." However, Wise was mistaken. Egan, a 36-year-old freelance television writer, originally from Kansas City, Mo., has no Olympic experience.

In "The Wedding Date," Dermot Mulroney plays an escort hired by an insecure New Yorker to squire her to her sister's wedding and act as if he's in love. Debra Messing plays the free-spending john, so it follows that Nick is no ordinary hooker-- he's a hooker with a degree in comparative literature from Brown. Had Chekhov written "The Wedding Date," an Ivy League semiotician introduced in the first act would have certainly deconstructed something in the third. (The movie's basic premise, perhaps?
