In 1989, attorney Ray Clark got a telephone call that would make him, for a while, one of the most famous lawyers in Los Angeles. The call to his small firm was from the presiding judge in the trial of Richard Ramirez, accused of being the brutal serial killer known as the Night Stalker. The defense team that Ramirez's family had hired was falling apart, and the judge wanted Clark to take over as lead defense counsel. Clark agreed, and soon became a fixture in printed and broadcast news accounts, protesting his client's innocence.

KNBC-TV news anchor Kelly Mack's 12-year ordeal with an obsessed fan began as innocent flattery, with gushing letters and requests for autographed photos. Over time, however, the reported delusions of one man--and the incessant phone calls, faxes, gifts and letters by the thousands--altered Mack's life and instilled in her a chronic sense of fear.

Zona A Book About a Film About a Journey to a Room Geoff Dyer Pantheon: 230 pp., $24 Imagine going to the movies but, for one reason or another, you can't see or hear anything on-screen. Fortunately, you can still experience the film with the help of a friend tugging on your sleeve excitedly and guiding you through the movie by describing what they see and hear, and, for added color, what it means. How much you'd gain from that experience would depend on your level of patience, certainly, but also on the quality of the film and your friend's abilities.

Re "Online Reviews Raising Questions in Cyberspace," June 29: Until recently, I was naive enough to assume the reviews on Amazon.com were authentic. Then I learned from a friend that someone using his "eddress" had posted a viciously negative review of my book, "Keep Watching the Skies," on Amazon.com. Internal evidence proved it was really posted by a sad case who had been stalking me online for some time, and evidently this fact convinced Amazon.com to remove the bogus review. The same stalker attacked others who had books featured on Amazon in the same manner.

In the title role of Adrián Biniez's quietly engaging "Gigante," Horacio Camandule's Jara is pretty gigantic: a nice-looking, massive guy whose solid build is marred by too much belly for even his large frame. He's a shy, 35-year-old security guard who works a night shift monitoring the surveillance cameras of a vast supermarket on the outskirts of Montevideo, Uruguay. Through one of his cameras, he spots Julia (Leonor Svarcas), a pretty young cleaning woman. It's an instance of virtual love at first sight, but Jara doesn't know what to do with his feelings.

The cases of two convicted murderers, within the space of 48 hours, made it clear that California's handling of capital cases may need a wee bit of tweaking. On Friday, death row inmate Richard Ramirez died. He was the notorious "Night Stalker," convicted of killing 13 people and trying to kill five others and of 11 counts of sexual assault. He had spent more than half his life behind bars, mostly on death row; he died in a hospital bed in Marin County. In November, Proposition 34 on the California ballot would have abolished the death penalty.

Why is it seemingly such a secret what the cause of death was of Richard Ramirez, the "Night Stalker"? With everything the public knows about his crimes, his weird beliefs and his many victims, for some reason this is being kept from open knowledge, at least for now. All authorities will say is that he died of natural causes. The tabloids and gossip sites are reporting that it was hepatitis C; a handful contend that he turned bright green shortly before his death. But why are people left to guess whether these reports are true rather than simply receive a short, official statement?

Richard Ramirez - the infamous serial killer who died Friday - was named the "Night Stalker" during an editorial "rump session" at the now defunct Los Angeles Herald Examiner. The informal gathering occurred after authorities revealed the string of killings were tied to a single suspect. Many names were bandied about at the meeting - among them "The Walk-in Killer" and "The Screen-Door Intruder," each referencing the ease with which the killer accessed the victims' homes.
