An attempt to call a few gathering places in Sparta, Ohio, Wednesday night to see if Dodger pitcher Tim Belcher's hometown friends were gathered to watch him pitch Game 4 of the World Series proved futile. There are no bars or restaurants in Sparta--population 200--we are told. "I'll give you the Sheriff's number in Morrow County, maybe he can help you," the telephone information assistance supervisor said.

"Pathfinder" is one of the funniest films of the year. That's not good news for this attempted action-adventure, which clearly lost its way in its own copious fog. The setup is good: One of the Viking expeditions to reach North America hundreds of years before Columbus leaves as its only survivor a 10-year-old boy. The child is raised by Indians, who call him "Ghost," either because of his pale skin or because they know the film will be haunted by cliches from a thousand other movies.
