Television may have become the mass medium of entertainment, but when a theatrical motion picture company invades a town to make a film, the events are generally remembered longer than floods, tornadoes, quintuplets or Sherman's march to the sea, which a location can sometimes resemble. Until a year ago, Natchitoches (pronounced Nack-i-tish) was still talking about the time John Wayne and William Holden came to town to make "The Horse Soldiers."

In the published version of Robert Harling's play "Steel Magnolias," he opens with this cautionary author's note: "The women in this play are witty, intelligent and, above all, real characters. They in no way, shape or form are meant to be portrayed as cartoons or caricatures." In Harling's movie adaptation, directed by Herbert Ross, he must have prefaced his script with the reverse caution. The film's yammering sextet is relentlessly cartoonish.

Ruby, the Afro-puff mannequin, sits in the front window underneath a 1940s perm machine that makes her look more tortured than beautiful. Above her is the torso of another mannequin, wrapped in necklaces, and the pelvis of another decorated in belts, both serving as lamps. Surrounding her are vintage hipster clothes, spectacular stones in a jewelry display and a line of jeweled belt buckles that Hollywood is hot for.
