USC played No. 4 Stanford even. The Trojans forced the high-powered Cardinal into triple overtime and appeared on the verge of sending the game into a fourth extra period. That's when it all went bad for the Trojans. Stanford linebacker A.J. Tarpley recovered a fumble by USC running back Curtis McNeal in the end zone, sending the No. 20 Trojans to a 56-48 defeat before a stunned crowd of 93,607 Saturday at the Coliseum. Stanford stayed on track for a possible national title and improved to 8-0 overall and 6-0 in the Pacific 12 Conference.

Only in Hollywood could a screenwriter mine the rather unsexy topics of water and land rights in Southern California during the early 20th century and come up with one of the most beguiling, beautiful and arresting films of all time. Robert Towne, who wrote the screenplay for "Chinatown," screens the 1974 classic, which won the Academy Award for original screenplay. After the film, Towne will be joined by California historian Kevin Starr, and Mark J. Harris and Ted Braun, USC cinematic arts professors, to discuss the film's resonance with our sense of Los Angeles.
