Last month, after years of futile goose-chasing, Mexican authorities captured the country's most-wanted criminal, the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel boss Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán. But another legendary Mexican desperado remains at large after 40 years, haunting the fantasies of an adoring public. She's Camelia la Texana, a comely San Antonio ingenue turned drug-smuggling queen who shot and killed her lover in a jealous rage. At least that's her story as immortalized in "Contrabando y Traición" ("Contraband and Betrayal")

Can you measure the size of a ship by its captain? Cunard Line pulled off a spectacular photo shoot of Capt. Kevin Oprey posed in front of his ship, the Queen Mary 2, while balanced on the vessel's underwater bow. The recent photos, in which the captain appears in uniform as a tiny dot in front of the behemoth ship, were snapped to mark a decade at sea for the ocean liner in 2014. "It's the incredible majesty of that ship, it's a towering, beautiful ocean liner," photographer James D. Morgan said in a statement from the luxury cruise line.

Re "In the running, as herself," Sept. 19 Transgender teen Cassidy Lynn Campbell would get my vote for homecoming queen at Marina High School. Not only is she beautiful, she is smart, brave and true to herself. Kudos to Marina High and her parents for allowing her to be who she is.

A long-time habitué and self-styled chronicler of life on the fringes of Hollywood, filmmaker Henry Jaglom makes movies in a style of studied nonchalance that borders on relentless self-indulgence. With "Queen of the Lot," he picks up from his 2006 film "Hollywood Dreams" for the further adventures of a psychotically fame-obsessed young actress (Tanna Frederick) who has this time out realized her dream of becoming a star. Frederick comes across as an adult who never outgrew the cutesy tricks of a child performer ?

A simple scan of songwriter-artist-video director-designer Allee Willis' home is visual rhapsody. A plastic Mr. T piggy bank circa 1983 with painted-on yellow bling is perched on a shelf in the rec room. A pink magazine rack of spun spaghetti metal, made to look like a poodle, is positioned between a pair of shaggy pink couches covered in plastic. On a side table is a squished beer bottle disguised as an ashtray, which renders the colloquialism "Sock it to me" in psychedelic blue. A bottle of Farrah Fawcett creme rinse and conditioner by Fabergé is nearby.

Please don't think of me as picky but regarding your review's Critic's Pick on "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" (Oct. 15) you stated Terence Stamp was Oscar-nominated. Sorry, Stamp was not nominated for this film. The only Oscar nomination "Priscilla" got was for best costume design--which it won! Marc Andrew Downing, MARC88@ix.NETCOM.COM

The Queen Mary in Long Beach embraces its British lineage by hosting the Christ Church Cathedral Choir from the famed 12th century church in Oxford, England. The choir will perform a pre-Easter concert April 1 in the Queen's Lounge -- and it's free. The deal: The choir of 12 men, 16 boys and two organists has a history that dates back 500 years. Cardinal Wolsey appointed its first director, John Taverner, in 1526. Today choral conductor Stephen Darlington fills that role for the singers who perform around the world.

A week after "12 Years a Slave" writer John Ridley and director-producer Steve McQueen both refrained from thanking one another after winning Oscars - the former for adapted screenplay, the latter for best picture - Ridley downplayed rumors of a rift between the two men. "You can't help people's perceptions, but I am sorry that people perceived that" as a feud, Ridley told the Huffington Post at the SXSW Film Festival, adding that he had said...

PARIS -- The scent of damp moss in the air, models floating across the runway like fairy-tale heroines wandering the forest, filmy white gowns trailing behind them.  Designer Sarah Burton painted a wildly romantic picture at the Alexander McQueen show Tuesday night at Paris Fashion Week.  And it was impossible not to fall under the spell. According to the show notes, the inspiration for the collection was floral and nocturnal fauna, “Beauty and the Beast” and wild romance.

By coincidence you ran an article on Hawaii's Kohala Coast (Footloose, Sept. 17) the day I came back from a week's stay at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. Exactly as you described it, the hotel resort is the queen of the island resorts. The dining experience at the Batik room and the Pavilion was something to behold. From the bellhop to the pool/beach manager, the service was superb. I am already looking forward to seeing these newly made friends again. ANNIE G. KO Torrance

When Cassidy Lynn Campbell woke up on Saturday morning she ambled to her bedroom mirror and took a long, astonished look at herself. "I was just thinking, what happened last night, what happened?" said the brown-haired 16-year-old. "It's so crazy that I actually won. " On Friday night Cassidy was named homecoming queen at Marina High in Huntington Beach, an event that wouldn't normally get much attention if not for a single fact: Cassidy was born a boy but now lives as a transgender girl.

Come Sunday night, director Steve McQueen's critically praised rendering of the true story of Solomon Northup, a free black man kidnapped and sold into slavery in the Antebellum South, may win the Academy Award for best picture. So why isn't everyone talking about "12 Years a Slave" around the water cooler, on the street, over coffee? It is arguably the most revered film in recent memory that so few have seen. Those who do watch it often leave theaters in a hush, finding it difficult to explain how they feel about what they've witnessed on the screen.

Not long after Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" premiered at the Telluride Film Festival last August, a friend cautioned the British director that his movie was "more important than you. " It turned out to be far truer than anyone, including McQueen, might have guessed. Nearly half a year after McQueen's searing retelling of the 1841 enslavement of Solomon Northup was first shown to moviegoers, "12 Years a Slave" remains the year's hot button movie, with McQueen the thoughtful and sometimes stubborn voice at the center of the conversation.
