Young Hollywood abounds in the Sunset Strip area where this house is located. Leonardo DiCaprio lives down the street in one direction; Tobey Maguire lives nearby in the other. The neighborhood has been described as "the quintessential, high-end Sunset Strip celebrity row." About this house: The owners, who are developers, rebuilt this 1956 house during the past two years with quiet in mind. They wanted to evoke the atmosphere of Bali outdoors combined with a Zen simplicity inside.

I was pleased to see your story on women execs and producers in the film industry, especially Lynda Obst ("A New Kind of Networking," by Irene Lacher, March 2). Several years ago, I wrote a letter to her in response to an article she'd written concerning the care and feeding of good writers. I asked her to read my screenplay, and her story editor, Stacey Sher, called me back and agreed to read it. Though they didn't buy my story or even option it, Ms. Sher spent almost 25 minutes on the phone with me detailing what I might do to make my script better.

There were two Erin Brockoviches at the premiere of director Steven Soderbergh's legal drama "Erin Brockovich": megastar Julia Roberts, who plays the feisty law office clerk-researcher in the movie, and the real Brockovich (now Erin Brockovich-Ellis). In fact, the duo that most industry guests wanted their photo taken with Tuesday night was not Roberts and her beau, Benjamin Bratt, or It-couple Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt; it was the statuesque Brockovich-Ellis and her boss, lawyer Ed Masry.

Oliver Stone has begun shooting one of the first Hollywood films about Sept. 11 in New York -- without re-creating the large-scale devastation that's all too familiar to residents who lived through the 2001 attacks. After months of meetings with community and family groups, producers of the untitled movie have promised to tread carefully on sensitive ground. Most of the major action portraying the World Trade Center collapse will be shot on a Los Angeles sound stage.
