In old Hollywood, being gay--or playing gay--was the kiss of death for a career. It was even more of a career-stopper than a lurid sex scandal. Or being over 40. Now you can get your film complete with searchlights and limos at the Mann Chinese, star in a Mel Gibson film, co-star in a new NBC series or sign a studio deal to write and direct a feature.

Tommy O'Haver's "Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss" is a giddy yet wise romantic comedy about a self-absorbed young gay photographer from Indiana who has come to L.A. in search of love and success. Sean P. Hayes' boyish Billy loves old Hollywood movies, particularly women's melodramas, and O'Haver makes his film a witty homage to vintage screen romance while keeping its perspective on the here and now.

In my 30-odd years of reading Calendar, I have never been moved to write in response to something encountered in its pages. I am now compelled following your writer's snide, semantically ill-advised characterization of Sean P. Hayes' feinting answer to a question about his sexuality as babble ("It's Not Easy Being Jack," by William Keck, Dec. 24). However elastic one's definition of "babble," it is more accurately exemplified by the media's incessant nattering on the issue of sexual orientation than by Hayes' thoughtful and carefully parsed (if purposely evasive)

Turns out there was some validity to 1999's onslaught of end-of-the-millennium prophecies. True, we didn't go "kaboom," but 2000 did see "Cats" close on Broadway and Brad Pitt's goodbye to bachelorhood, and after four sold-out concerts, Barbra Streisand won't be singing us love songs anymore. And as if that weren't wrenching enough, Celine Dion was nowhere to be found. How do we cope? "Trust me," assures "Will & Grace's" flamboyantly fierce, fabulously fictitious Jack McFarland.
