    'Sound of Music' gaining on native son Mozart in Salzburg
    SALZBURG, Austria — I'm on a bus with 57 other tourists singing "I Am Sixteen Going on Seventeen." It's fun. Really fun. Well, it's sort of fun. After three hours, I feel like jumping out the window. "I can't hear you," the tour guide coaxes the...

  • 'Priest'

    'Priest'
    The title doesn't completely indicate what you'll get from this rather grim action-with-vampires adventure, which was a 3-D attraction in theaters. Paul Bettany plays the title cleric who goes to the rescue in a post-apocalyptic world when his niece (Lily...

    Western Costume, closet to the stars, turns 100
    To the casual passerby, there's nothing remarkable about the 120,000-square-foot former printing plant fronting a sun-baked stretch of Vanowen Street in North Hollywood. There's nothing to indicate that, just beyond the double doors, gangsters are earning...

  • From Christopher Plummer at Stratford Shakespeare Festival, 'A Word or Two'

    STRATFORD, Ontario — At the age of 82 and with his acting chops and handsome looks singularly unscathed, Christopher Plummer has earned the right to talk of death. If a man can fight back so many of its familiar ravages, you think, he must be a...
