James Stewart, who has been a movie star for more than half a century, recently visited MCA Home Video, which is putting out on cassette such Stewart movies as "The Glenn Miller Story" (1954), "Winchester '73" (1950), "Bend of the River" (1950), "Thunder Bay" (1953) and "The Rare Breed" (1965).

Tuesday, in the Pavilion of the Music Center, the 30-voice, male choir of Winchester Cathedral made its first Southern California appearance.
