It can be rough being young and popular in Hollywood. The night after the 61st Academy Awards presentation, there was Carrie Hamilton, a performer in the up-and-comers production number, out on the town again. "I'm exhausted," she said at the premiere of the movie "Sing." "Everybody from last night still has their makeup on--you go to sleep propped up," the actress, dressed in shredded jeans, joked. "But I thought, 'I'm so tired, I wonder if anyone else is going to show up.'

The transparent image of Casper the Friendly Ghost may be floating across a movie screen in the background, but the atmosphere today on the Todd-AO music scoring stage isn't exactly ethereal. Film composer James Horner, looking a decade younger than his 41 years, is trying for the third time to navigate an enormous pickup orchestra and a dozen female singers through a fast-changing, 10-minute chase sequence, filled with musical shifts that must match the image to the second.

Carolco Pictures Inc.'s first film in more than a year is the Western comedy "Wagons East." But for the big-budget producer that once made such hit movies as "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" and "Basic Instinct," things seem to be heading south. "Wagons East," best known as the last film made by comic actor John Candy, who died of a heart attack before the production was completed, is a box office dud. The TriStar Pictures release grossed an anemic $1.

A marionette show about the effects of gentrification, set along the eastern portion of Sunset Boulevard, might seem a bit of a stretch. But that is precisely the point for the creators of "Sunset Chronicles" -- to flex their creativity and comment on the reality of living in Los Angeles by crafting a fantasy world.

Even before the newest entry in the "Star Wars" saga opened last week, a comic-book store clerk in Seattle had organized a group called the International Society for the Extermination of Jar Jar Binks and set up a Web site with an address that sounds like a battle cry: http://www.jarjarmustdie.com. From all indications, the digital animated character who debuted in "Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace" is irritating moviegoers across North America.

Touchy-feely we are not. We tend to double-bolt our doors, avoid eye contact with neighbors and keep our hands locked in the "10-2" steering wheel position to prevent us from becoming road-rage kill. Meet my new best friend: automated teller. We are perpetually on Amber Alert. We are Angelenos -- proud, equity rich, spread thin and spread out. We have no there here, no common watering hole, no central kiosk.

It has taken over 10 years, but Michael L. Kavanagh finally has Brendan Behan exactly where he wants him: on stage. "He was a great influence on my life," said Kavanagh, who pays tribute to the late Irish writer in his one-man show, "Bein' with Behan" (at Van Nuys' West End Playhouse through Feb. 4). "We also have very similar backgrounds. We both come from the slums of Dublin.

There is an ongoing controversy and debate over alleged "historical inaccuracies" in a number of top Hollywood films that will soon be up for awards.

What worked and what tanked among '96's all-important holiday films? Publicly, studios might blame a glut of films or serious miscalculations about what the public, particularly women, wanted to see.
