I fail to see the purpose in John Horn's article featuring "Quinceanera" filmmakers' Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer ["The XXX Factor," July 1]. Westmoreland's earlier work in adult porn has no relevance to the quality of the film, which recently played to two packed theaters at the L.A. Film Festival. "Quinceanera" is a fresh and hopeful story of Mexican American teens growing up in a rapidly gentrifying Echo Park. It has been beautifully filmed and the actors are outstanding.

"Quinceanera" takes its title from the Latino custom of celebrating a girl's 15th birthday as elaborately as a family can afford. Endearing and perceptive, it is set in picturesque Echo Park, a neighborhood rapidly undergoing gentrification. The quinceanera, in honor of Alicia Sixtos' lovely Eileen, opens the film, introducing the two young people who will be the film's central figures, along with their great-great-uncle, a street vendor and beloved community figure.

As it enters its second decade, the Los Angeles International Gay & Lesbian Film & Video Festival, which opens its 10-day 11th edition Thursday at the Directors Guild, can be proud of having brought countless significant films to the city. In many instances, especially in regard to foreign productions, the festival provides the only opportunity to see them.

Performance artist-actor Kent Fuher has an interesting observation on the state of drag. Fuher is better known to Angelenos as the vibrant-lipped beat poet Jackie Beat, whose "Fifteen Minutes" show at Luna Park has drawn raves. "The key to the success (of drag) is that people expect so little from a drag queen," he said. "You get up there and you have written material and people say, 'These jokes would work even if he wasn't dressed like a woman!' You know you have them in the palm of your hand."

The Toronto International Film Festival announced a number of additional world premieres Tuesday, saying that John Turturro's “Fading Gigolo,” Josh Waller's Cory Monteith pic “McCanick,” and Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland's Errol Flynn film "The Last of Robin Hood” will all appear first at the festival. It also said that “Yurusarezaru Mono,” Lee Sang-il's remake of Clint Eastwood's “Unforgiven,” will make its North American premiere there after playing the Venice Film Festival shortly before; Alex Gibney's cycling doc “The Armstrong Lie” and James Franco's latest director-actor drama “Child of God” will also make their N.A. debuts north of the border.

"The Fluffer" begins as the light satire on the gay porn industry its title suggests, but then develops parallel stories of thwarted love and ultimately emerges as a coming-of-age odyssey of notable substance and honesty. That it is a fine example of modest-budget filmmaking, boasting first-rate acting, writing and directing, is not all that surprising.

Joan Crawford once described Errol Flynn as "the most beautiful man who ever lived. " But that was when Flynn was the charming, dashing and devilishly handsome star of such Warner Bros. swashbucklers as 1935's "Captain Blood," 1938's "The Adventures of Robin Hood" and 1940's "The Sea Hawk. " By 1957, though, Flynn's hedonistic lifestyle of booze, drugs and young women - he was tried and acquitted in 1942 in the alleged statutory rape of two teenage girls - had caught up with him. He was a dissipated 48. And his personal life was in shambles, having recently separated from his third wife, actress Patrice Wymore.

It closes Sunday, July 18, at 7 p.m.
