For much of the morning, Sheryl Lee Ralph has had a determined, don't-talk-to-me-unless-you-have-something-important-to-say look on her face. But this moment is different. Right now, Ralph is loose and smiling. "Everybody stop what you're doing for a sec and come close," Ralph says. "Y'all got to come close, you know I need that vibe."

If you caught Renée Zellweger and Bradley Cooper in their new supernatural horror movie "Case 39," you may have observed that the stars look younger than you might have expected. Although "Case 39" was released in the U.S just three weeks ago, Cooper and Zellweger began shooting the film in the fall of 2006 ? so long ago a young senator named Barack Obama was still nearly six months from announcing his run for the presidency and Facebook was just opening to the general public.

Nearly halfway around the world from Hollywood, a 17-year-old high-school student is trying to make a name for himself as a film distributor. Unlike the moguls in Tinseltown, though, he and his colleagues in a group called MysticVCD don't cut deals, take meetings or campaign for Oscars. Instead, their goal is to put a movie on the Internet first, long before it's officially released on tape or disc.

The people running Bill Clinton's campaign for President would prefer you didn't know about Mort Engelberg. Engelberg, 54, is a nice fellow--smart, articulate and passionately devoted to the candidate he has served since last fall. But Engelberg is a Clinton advance man. And in the world of modern politics, advance men are somewhat like secret agents--people whose very existence is best concealed for the sake of the mission. Consider the risks of exposure.

A few excerpts from recent Rex Reed reviews in the New York Observer: On "Anger Management": "When an accomplished pro like Jack Nicholson teams up with an incompetent amateur like Adam Sandler, the stench of easy money and fast profits poisons the ozone." On "Dreamcatcher": "Just when you say, 'I've seen the worst movie ever made,' and I respond, 'No, I've seen the worst movie ever made,' the garbage truck rolls around again, dumps off a horror called 'Dreamcatcher' and makes liars of us all.

Public television has a hard enough time as it is. But now some Republicans are determined to render it as brain dead as they are. These latest attacks against the programs on PBS have come mainly during a Senate debate on a $1.1-billion funding bill for 1993 to 1995. From Senate Minority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.), we hear that PBS is a gusher of "unrelenting liberal cheerleading."

For almost a century, writers have been coming to Southern California for the same reason that Willie Sutton robbed banks: because it's where the money is.

By 1915, playwright George Bernard Shaw had asked his secretary to create a special file folder for his lucrative dealings with the faraway movie moguls.
