Rolex is relaunching its Tudor brand in the U.S. after a 17-year absence, an event that feels a bit like encountering your thrill-seeking first cousin after his long boarding school stint. Priced from $2,500 to $5,000, Tudor timepieces are produced alongside Rolex watches in Switzerland, but they're assembled with more affordable ETA Swiss watch movements rather than the movements made in-house at Rolex. Unveiled in 1946 by Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf, the Tudor collection was originally branded with a shield that contained a decorative rose, a symbol of the English Tudor dynasty.

Re "End of Blockbuster near," Business, Nov. 7 When I rented VHS movies from Blockbuster, the cartridges carried funny reminders telling customers to rewind their tapes. They included: "To play is human. To rewind is divine!," "Be a friend. Rewind when you reach the end," and "Just to remind, please rewind. Thanks. The end. " Blockbuster had been struggling in the DVD and video-game rental business thanks to the growth of Redbox and Internet-streaming services such as Netflix and YouTube.

In the age of TiVo, rewind can be a viewer's favorite button. Sadly, we can't record and play back those moments in life that we want to do over. This isn't true for the play "A Parallelogram," written by Bruce Norris and playing at the Mark Taper Forum, because a special remote control allows the character, Bee (Marin Ireland), to replay scenes from her current life. She is aided by an older version of herself, who materializes to share wisdom and surprises about Bee's future. Her boyfriend, Jay (Tom Irwin)

If you want flashy pyrotechnics and gore, proceed straight to "The Amityville Horror" movies. But if you yearn for a classy ghost film with some old-fashioned storytelling magic, turn to "The Uninvited." Unlike so many modern-day haunted-house films, this 1944 entry endures primarily because of its keen sense of subtlety, mystery and suspense. It doesn't even matter that the ghosts in "The Uninvited" are rarely seen.

Where you've seen him Quinton Aaron had had bit parts as bodyguards before playing Q in Michel Gondry's "Be Kind Rewind": "I was going on 'Be Kind Rewind' as background and ended up getting upgraded to principal," says the Bronx native. "The one month I worked on that film, that made me decide [to be an actor]. When you find that job where you don't care how long you have to stay there, you're just ready, you have the same energy you arrived with when it's time to go . . . that's how I looked at it."

WEST DIVISION San Diego 2010: 9-7, 2nd in West Last year in playoffs: 2009 Rewind: Gaudy statistics alone won't get it done. The Chargers were reminded of that last season when they missed the playoffs despite finishing No. 1 in the league in total offense and defense. Play: The Chargers have one of the league's best quarterbacks in Philip Rivers, and they did him a big favor by re-signing two of his favorite targets: Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd.

So MY dad took a couple of days off, allowing me to "guest host" his column for him again, a task I rank right up there with scrubbing pond scum off a canoe. Gee, thanks. As my father himself would say: "Bartender!!!" "You know, this thing just isn't intuitive at all," he huffs. That's Gunga Dad now. He's in the den trying to rewind the DVD, so he can take it back to Blockbuster. I keep telling him that you don't need to rewind a DVD. In fact, you can't rewind a DVD even if you want to.

On the afternoon of Friday, Nov. 22, 1963, the turgid melodrama of "As the World Turns" was suddenly interrupted by grave news from the real world. In Dallas, three shots had been fired at President John F. Kennedy's motorcade. Fifty-eight minutes later, a visibly moved Walter Cronkite would confirm the unthinkable: The president was dead. For the ensuing three days, Americans gathered around their televisions in a rite of collective mourning as the three broadcast networks abandoned their regularly scheduled programming to provide uninterrupted news coverage.

A group of like-minded young people pool their resources, make use of new, inexpensive technology and begin to make movies that capture their particular time and place. From the French New Wave to the recent American micro-budget movement, filmmakers have often come together just so. The documentary "Blank City," which opens in Los Angeles on Friday, explores the independent filmmakers of New York City's downtown scene in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Though the New York musicians from that era — the Ramones, Blondie and Sonic Youth, to name but a few — have been well documented, the filmmaking of that period has been less examined, even though directors such as Jim Jarmusch ("Stranger Than Paradise")

Lesley Ann Warren's first audition for the title role in CBS' 1965 version of the Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II musical, " Cinderella" was an unmitigated disaster. Warren was all of 18 but had garnered great notices for her supporting role as Snookie on Broadway in "110 in the Shade," the musical version of "The Rainmaker." "Cinderella" director Charles S. Dubin had seen Warren in "110" and thought she would be perfect. (Rodgers and Hammerstein's only original musical for TV had aired live to great acclaim in 1957 with Julie Andrews in the starring role.

It's beginning to look a lot like 1998 in the Middle East. Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister from 1996 to 1999, has a shot at taking over again after a very close election Tuesday. In Iran, Mohammad Khatami, the country's president from 1997 to 2005, on Sunday announced his candidacy in the June presidential race. If both win, they can growl at each other via the airwaves just like they did a decade ago.
