It is dark and the air is stifling inside Stage 2 at Churubusco Studios, where the science-fiction film "Total Recall" is being made. Director Paul Verhoeven and his production crew, many of whom worked with him on "RoboCop," are backed into a corner of fabricated red rock catacombs, breathing the thick vanilla-scented prop smoke that is used to soften the image for the camera.

THE Oct. 29 review of the new cut of "Alien" omitted the "story by" credit given to Dan O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett ("Return to the Nostromo," by Manohla Dargis). We understand that credits can sometimes be an alien world to the general public. However, we hope that the L.A. Times recognizes the importance of the "story by" credit. Generally, that credit is given to those whose original written work has created the basic narrative, idea, theme or outline indicating character development and action for the film.

The tone of Hollywood's futuristic fantasies can be summed up: We have seen the future and it is really grungy . From "Blade Runner" to "Total Recall" to the current "Freejack," the world view is not pretty. We're treated to a gloppy, punctured-ozone-layer universe crawling with freakoids and punkettes. As with most cautionary fables, the dangers are all rooted in urban decay. Cities are the festering souls of future rot and technology exists to promote decay.

Hollywood had a hard time saying "no" to Gary Shusett. In the early 1970s, he co-founded Sherwood Oaks Experimental College, a professional school devoted to the craft of filmmaking, and kept it going for the rest of his life by brandishing a trait never in short supply in this town: tenacity. After a guest lecture by reclusive record producer Phil Spector proved popular, Shusett realized he could make a go of it by persuading the industry's big names to share their experiences and expertise with students.

It's been more than a decade since King Kong took his big fall off New York's World Trade Center. But in sequel-crazed Hollywood, movie heroes never die--especially not the tallest, darkest and most brutishly handsome leading man of all. However, the challenge of "King Kong Lives" (citywide) isn't just bringing the Big Fella back from the dead.
