"This movie we always think of as the anti-indie, because it lacks all edge," declares Isabel Rose, star and co-writer of the new musical romantic comedy "Anything but Love," in from New York for the West Coast premiere of her film. "Our film is round." Round and unapologetically retro, with a sincerity that apparently began with the making of the film, shot in New York on a tight budget and tight schedule that were strictly adhered to.

Robert Cary's "Anything but Love" is that rarity, an hommage to the sweeping Technicolor Hollywood love story of the '40s and '50s that works. It succeeds because it dares to take its people and their dreams seriously, with a gently humorous affection, instead of merely sending them up, and because it clearly is taking place in the Manhattan of here and now and not in some vague time warp.

IF you thought the Rev. Tori Spelling might be a little more subdued now that she has been invested with the power to perform gay marriages as she did this last weekend for her reality show "Inn Love," well, you'd be mistaken. "Hey bitches!" was her greeting from the stage of the landmark Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles Thursday night as she led the "gay benediction" to kick off the 25th anniversary of Outfest -- Los Angeles' Gay & Lesbian Film Festival.

Since so many religions have condemned homosexuality for millenniums, it's no small accomplishment that the absorbing and wrenching "Save Me," written by Robert Desiderio from a story by Craig Chester and Alan Hines, views a dedicated homophobe with compassion and understanding. This is a modest, thoughtful, independent production of exceptional insight and quietly devastating power.

Having just been fired by his analyst of 12 years, the eponymous 33-year-old neurotic played by Chris Messina stumbles downtown on New York City's Broadway in a stupor, passing Fairway and then Zabar's. Anyone who's done any time on the Upper West Side knows they've got their markets turned around, a blooper that sums up the always-just-a-bit-off photo-realism of this assertively Manhattan-centric "divorce comedy."

A federal judge Sunday dismissed one of the jurors in Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens' corruption trial because the court lost contact with the woman after her father's death. U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan plans to seat an alternate juror today and order the jury to start its deliberations from the beginning, a setback for Stevens' attempt to get a verdict before Alaskans vote on his reelection bid Nov. 4.

It was Funny Boys' night out at Sunday's premiere of "Little Miss Sunshine," the closing-night film of the successful 2006 Los Angeles Film Festival. "Sunshine" stars Adam Arkin, Steve Carell and Greg Kinnear hit the red carpet at the Wadsworth Theatre to support their quirky comedy -- a story about chasing your dreams in a win-or-die society and the important life lesson of losing. Former child star Haley Joel Osment was also on hand.

Perry Lieber, a one-time Hollywood press agent who became a friend and confidant of Howard Hughes when the eccentric billionaire took over RKO studios and then became Hughes' spokesman through his Las Vegas empire-building period, is dead. Lieber was 83 and died Monday night in Las Vegas. He had suffered from cancer and was honored earlier this year by First Lady Nancy Reagan for his personal fight against the disease. Lieber's career in public relations spanned 58 years.

When the bottom falls out of your world, perhaps the best thing to do is laugh. The motion picture industry seemed to sense this in the 1930s, after the Depression put such heavy burdens on everyday life. People needed to be taken out of themselves -- to shake off their troubles -- if only for a while. So Hollywood turned out comedies, many satirizing the rich but clueless and often featuring at their core a crackling, complicated, seemingly impossible romance.

Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood may have gone elsewhere, but London Fashion Week is not letting that dampen its enthusiastic vision for the first spring and summer of a new millennium. Bright pastels, peach-soft leather and whisper-chiffon sequins, ruching and ruffles and cheerful florals combine for a deeply feminine look.
