When a couple of steelworkers notice that a night spot is packing in the local lasses with a Chippendale-style revue, they reflexively react with scorn--at least until they start calculating the take. The difference between Gaz (Robert Carlyle, pictured) and his pals and the buffed-out young guys is an instant source of humor and discomfort (Cinemax Friday at 8 p.m.).

Regarding Richard Covington's otherwise interesting article on European film distribution in the U.S. and elsewhere ("An Unresolved Border Conflict," Feb. 20), he states: "Rising European stars like Antonio Banderas, Cate Blanchett, Ewan McGregor, Emily Watson and Robert Carlyle have made their reputations principally in American and British films." Please note that as often as the Brits try to claim Blanchett as one of their own, she remains Australia's greatest export, to the point of having been named "Australian of the Year" in 1999.

The miniseries was criticized for its subject matter and it changed focus midstream, but in the end, CBS' "Hitler: The Rise of Evil" earned seven Emmy nominations. Robert Carlyle, left, in the title role, was not nominated, but Peter O'Toole was, for supporting actor for his portrayal of German President Paul von Hindenburg.

Principal filming is scheduled to start early next month in Prague, Czech Republic, on a CBS miniseries covering the early life and political rise of Adolf Hitler, a project that drew criticism from Jewish leaders and others when it was announced last summer. Despite calls for CBS to back away from the miniseries, the project, which is being produced by Alliance-Atlantis, took on a new screenwriter and continued development.

A Jewish leader who had criticized CBS for making a four-hour miniseries on a young Adolf Hitler is now praising the movie after having seen it. Last year, Abraham Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League, said it was "distressing that people would spend talent, time and money to make this man human." But on Friday, Foxman commended CBS and the film's producers for teaching a history lesson in a powerful way.

"The Bachelor" proved a bigger ratings attraction than the opening of CBS' two-part miniseries "Hitler: The Rise of Evil," based on preliminary Nielsen Media Research ratings issued Monday. The ABC dating show added roughly 5 million viewers from the first to the last half-hour, averaging more than 15 million viewers over those two hours, as did back-to-back episodes of NBC's "Law & Order: Criminal Intent."

I thought that serious movies and TV shows had gone beyond making their villains cartoonish! Robert Carlyle playing Hitler looks like someone out of a Monty Python skit, what with the over-the-top anger, the tiny mustache and the slightly oversized clothes. Chris Larkin playing Goering does not look like the former athlete and World War I hero that Goering was. Evil is more easily dismissed if it is portrayed as being cartoonish. Evil is perpetrated by people like us, and it should be realistically portrayed as such so as to be able to resist it. J. Gregory Keene Lake Forest Why are people making such a big deal about the new CBS miniseries, especially since there have been made-for-television and feature films about Hitler before, and with such brilliant actors as Anthony Hopkins ("The Bunker")

The producer of CBS' miniseries "Hitler: The Rise of Evil" has been fired for statements he made regarding the project and President Bush. Ed Gernon, an executive vice president at Alliance Atlantis, which is behind the production scheduled for next month, was abruptly let go after more than a decade with the company. CBS officials were said to be upset that Gernon appeared to equate Hitler with Bush by drawing parallels between Germany in the 1930s and contemporary America.
