"Eyes Without a Face" (Les Yeux Sans Visage) was indeed a haunting, evocative film as Kenneth Turan said ("A 'Face' You Won't Forget," Jan. 21), but the audience and I had another reaction to it. During the "gory" scenes, the surgery sequence in particular, we were laughing at it. Makeup effects have come far in 37 years and these old shocks no longer hold their power. This inadvertent humor did not mar the poetry of the film's imagery, but it did make me wonder what it takes to jolt a contemporary audience.

Re "Good Ending for Sacred Prayer Books," Nov. 13: The book in the photo is not a sacred text "100 years old and not suited for further use," but the classic novel "Tevye the Milkman," the fiddler on the roof created by my great uncle, Sholom Aleichem, whose bemused smiling visage on the frontispiece you have also reproduced. That The Times has no Yiddish scholars I understand, but what about the staff of Sinai Temple and the Jewish day school? I hope they take Tevye's story out of the "gniza" and give it to some retirement home's library, where it will still be appreciated and enjoyed.

How impertinent of Irons to suggest it's appropriate to begin thinking of whether our great President might face eventual impeachment for his role in the Iran/contra scandal. Next thing you know, some spoilsport will suggest the faithful abandon efforts to get the Constitution revised so Ronnie can seek a third term. Fortunately, none of this has to interfere with the ongoing project to raise money for the addition of Reagan's visage to those already carved on Mount Rushmore. ALAN HARVEY Arleta

Nicolas Cage is a fine actor ("Just Winging It," by Kristine McKenna, Aug. 31), but his selection to play Superman is a travesty. There is, essentially, nothing about Cage that makes him appropriate for this role. He is the wrong physical type, being too short and skinny-legged. And, while he certainly does not have to be a Christopher Reeve clone, his narrow-eyed, slope-jawed visage doesn't even come close to the "look" of this mythical superhero. Beyond that, he brings entirely the wrong persona to this character.

Getting It On, the Clothing of Rock 'n' Roll, by Mablen Jones (Abbeville Press: $27.50). Mablen Jones, an artist and fashion historian, brings a hip mythologist's eye to her study of rock clothing as she enthusiastically analyzes the relationship between style and substance in the last 30 years of pop. Jones opens with the observation that "rock 'n' roll stars look dangerous--they express the romance of recklessness and the spectacle of excess at its outermost limits of agony and ecstasy.

Torii Hunter walked into the Angels' clubhouse the other day in Tempe, Ariz., took one look at Eddie McKiernan and was tempted to ask him to fetch a pair of sanitary hose. "I thought he was a clubhouse guy," said Hunter, the Angels' 33-year-old center fielder. "I can't believe he's 19. He looks like he's about 12. He makes me feel old, very old. When I was drafted, he was 3." McKiernan, a reliever who was 1-5 with a 3.

After several minutes of gazing up at the faces of four presidents carved into a mountain of granite, Sen. Barack Obama answered the obvious question: Could he picture himself there with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln? "I don't think my ears would fit," he said. "There's just only so much rock up there."

KAZUNARI Ninomiya's face is unblemished, almost fragile, a porcelain slate of innocence onto which director Clint Eastwood projects the emotional toll of war in "Letters From Iwo Jima." Ninomiya plays Saigo, an apolitical baker conscripted into the doomed defense of the island, fighting not for the generals or the emperor but only to survive and return to his wife and infant daughter. Through his eyes we see battle, its cynicism, fear, the hatreds and pity.

Asked if he is a political artist, Michael Minelli sighs. "Well, not intentionally," he says. "I don't set out to make a point. But anyone who knows me knows I yell at the television a lot." A glance at "cannibals & christians" at the Michael Kohn Gallery suggests that it is newscasters, politicians and other talking heads who receive the lion's share of the L.A. artist's expletive-peppered invective.

Sunset is what often dazzles travelers to Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, but sunrise there is equally spectacular. Early-morning hikers at the canyon rim often are rewarded with stunning colors. You can spend the night at the comfortable Bryce Canyon Lodge or at the North or Sunset campgrounds, all in the heart of the park. As night gives way to day, you have a short trip to the rim. In fall, the darkness of the cold, early mornings here can be eerie.

Summer has come to this quiet little town near Versailles. You can tell by the opening of "A Visage Decouvert," an exhibition at the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art. Art lovers stroll through the foundation's idyllic estate all year, many of them in search of "Long Term Parking," the best known work in Cartier's sculpture garden. In his witty commentary on the automobile age, French sculptor Arman has imprisoned 56 real cars in a 60-foot tower of concrete.

The icons of modern art tend to be big, muscular paintings--Picasso's "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon," Duchamp's "Nude Descending a Staircase," Leger's "The Mechanic," Mondrian's "Broadway Boogie Woogie." Harold B. Nelson, director of the Long Beach Museum of Art, had something different in mind when he organized the latest exhibition, "Icons for a New Era: The Spiritual Abstractions of Alexej Jawlensky."

It was an exercise in humor watching one of the world's most celebrated photographers posing for a photographer herself. Annie Leibovitz, 50, in town recently to promote her new book, "Women" (Random House), couldn't decide whether her trademark round glasses should be on, off or thrown on the big white bed behind her. Clearly, she was uncomfortable.
