As if it weren't enough that Lena Dunham, the 26-year-old writing/directing/acting phenom who started a revolution this year with her HBO series "Girls," scored a $3.5-million book deal and has been granted the unofficial but unimpeachable title of "voice of her generation," she also appears to have won the presidential election - or at least to have been one of the driving forces behind the guy who did.

The simplest films can be the most daring, the most impressive, the most satisfying. So it is with "A Single Girl." Directed by Benoit Jacquot and starring the radiant Virginie Ledoyen, this French effort focuses, largely in real time, on a critical moment for a young Parisian woman. Intimate and engaging, "A Single Girl's" immediacy, sense of life observed and belief in the power of cinema make it a delicate throwback to the now distant pleasures of the French New Wave.

Re "Demography and the single girl," Opinion, Aug. 23 Don't forget the old broads who are living the single life and loving it and still living in our Proposition 13 homes. On my block there are three of us -- two widows and one divorcee. We're happy growing our tomatoes in our backyards. We aren't looking for men because we figure either he or we would be wiping the dribble off one or the other's chin in no time. Anyway, it's cheaper to buy a puppy to love! MARY C.

Helen Gurley Brown, longtime editor of Cosmopolitan magazine and author of the classic 1962 book "Sex and the Single Girl," died Monday. She was 90. Brown joined Cosmopolitan in 1965 and served as its editor for 32 years, giving it its signature pro-sex, love-quiz, headline-popping style. She retired from the magazine in 1997. In January of this year, just weeks before turning 90, Brown donated $30 million to the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism and the Stanford School of Engineering to establish the David and Helen Gurley Brown Institute for Media Innovation.

Helen Gurley Brown still has sex with her husband. Even though she's 78 and he's 83, they are still going strong in the bedroom, she told Newsweek. The cover story was about scientists' efforts to treat sexual dysfunction in women of all ages, but Brown wants us to know that in her late 70s she's more interested in sex than ever.

In her bestselling 1962 book "Sex and the Single Girl," Helen Gurley Brown dared to tell American women that they inherited their "proclivity" for sex, that it "isn't some random piece of mischief you dreamed up because you're a bad, wicked girl. " When her frank and exuberant mix of advice, exhortation and naughty girl talk became a publishing phenomenon, thousands of women wrote to seek her advice, and she would sit at home at night in Los Angeles, trying to answer them all. One night, her husband, the movie producer David Brown, had an idea while he watched her type.

I had met Mr. Min only once before, but when we arrived at the restaurant, the first thing he said to me was, "Do you have a boyfriend?" Both of his daughters -- my brother's fiancee and her younger sister -- were mortified. That didn't stop their father from posing the question again later, and from asking whether anyone had a suitable match for his shy 18-year-old niece from Korea. The sisters apologized profusely.

Alicia Keys is offering fans plenty of options with her latest single, “Girl on Fire,” by simultaneously releasing three versions of the song. Her "choose your favorite version" approach for the single -- the title track to her forthcoming album, due out Nov. 27 -- comes in the form of the original and a two-part suite: an “Inferno” remix featuring Nicki Minaj and a stripped-down “Blue Light” version. Keys' strength has largely been her ballads, especially the sweeping, dramatic numbers where she gives her powerful vocals the space to run amok over anthemic hooks.

Before there was Carrie Bradshaw, Joan Holloway and “Fifty Shades of Grey,” there was Helen Gurley Brown. The legendary author and Cosmopolitan magazine editor from 1965 to 1997 who died on Monday emboldened a generation of women with her controversial views about female sexuality, and laid the groundwork for today's sexualized fashion and celebrity culture, which is digested by men and women alike. Before she took over at Cosmopolitan, she wrote the 1962 advice book “Sex and the Single Girl,” which taught women to forget about marriage, and worry about sexual and financial independence instead.

This weekend marks the end of an era for American women. Cathy, the weight-obsessed, chocolate-loving, shopaholic comic strip heroine who has appeared in newspapers (including this one) for more than three decades, will make her final appearance on Sunday. Cathy's creator, Cathy Guisewite, has been chided for plenty of things over the years, not least sabotaging female progress by trafficking in hoary and reductive female stereotypes. The title character had a nagging mother, a fear of dressing rooms and a straight-from-the-container Haagen-Dazs response to all of life's frustrations.

It's likely that more people have heard of Busby Berkeley than have seen his astonishing dance numbers in their entirety. Helping to change that is a 10-film retrospective put on by the UCLA Film & Television Archive starting Friday night at the Hammer Museum in Westwood. This is a welcome opportunity to see the eye-popping routines Berkeley created during a long career in Hollywood in the only kind of presentation -- a theatrical-size screen -- that do them justice.
