It can't be called "serendipity" when you happen across something you already know is good. So it wasn't serendipitous that a copy of Abraham Cahan's novel "The Rise of David Levinsky" (1917) ended up in my hands. I had found myself in the public library with a few minutes to kill, and remembered that I'd been meaning for years to look up a quote from the book. I pictured it clearly as the opening line, ...

BURBANK, Calif. - In the hit movie "American Gangster," those aren't the sounds of Denzel Washington's footsteps whenever his drug-lord character struts about the tough New York streets. That's really Alyson Moore, wearing her worn men's size-6, hard-soled shoes from an Army surplus store and walking in place heel-to-toe on a cement slab strewn with coffee grounds.   BEHIND THE SCENES - Warner Bros. foley artists Alyson Moore and John Roesch do a movie's everyday sounds, ...

Keith Richards suffered a life-threatening brain injury when he fell from a palm tree while on vacation last year in Fiji. But fellow Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, who witnessed the fall from just a few feet away, devotes barely a paragraph to it in "Ronnie," his new autobiography.   ROCK LEGEND - Ron Wood's biography depicts his life on the road and tells of the drug and alcohol abuse that almost consumed him.

CNS Photo courtesy of MSO. Even by rock's brain-shriveling standards of debauched self-abuse, Osbourne repeatedly set a new standard. But no more. Clean and sober for the past two ... [full story]

A made-for-MTV sex symbol, Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine is well known as a teen idol and a Romeo, however briefly, to such stars as Jessica Simpson and Lindsay Lohan. He's even more noted for his sleek pop-soul vocal style that at times suggests Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson by way of Sting and Hall & Oates.   MAROON-5 - What's love got to do with it? Not so much, claims Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine, ... [full story]

Chef Gordon Ramsay gets away from it all by scuba diving all over the world. He's not looking for fresh food; he's soaking up the beauty of nature and the mystery of the sea.   GORDON RAMSAY - 'For me, doing either of a 'Kitchen' TV episode is like opening up a new restaurant,' says chef Gordon Ramsay, star of 'Kitchen Nightmares' and 'Hell's Kitchen.' CNS Photo courtesy of Eric Liebowitz. "I love diving by myself, uninterrupted, ... [full story]

Who put a lit professor in charge of this holiday season's movies? Consider these august titles: "Beowulf." "Love in the Time of Cholera." "The Kite Runner." "No Country for Old Men." "Atonement."   BLADE RUNNER - A restored and remastered 'Blade Runner' is back in theaters, and with it has returned the controversy of whether the script would have been better if it had stayed closer to the Philip K. Dick's novella. CNS Photo. Also coming to ... [full story]

LOS ANGELES - Salvador Dali, the seminal surrealist, was an erudite artist with a love of mainstream movies. In hindsight, it seems inevitable that the Spanish-born painter, who lived from 1904 until 1989, would have a considerable involvement with the cinema. He was as much showman and celebrity as artist.   'THE PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY' - The crisp look of Salvador Dali's classic paintings, prime among them 'The Persistence of Memory' (1931), appealed to Alfred Hitchcock. ...

For The Beatles and for director Richard Lester, 1964's "A Hard Day's Night" was a tough act to follow and, as it turned out, an impossible one. Besides having the novelty of seeing John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr on the big screen for the first time, "A Hard Day's Night" captured Beatlemania like it was lightning in a bottle and offered the world a good-natured close-up of The Beatles being themselves. ...

The lanky actor Vince Vaughn has a talent for making shifty-eyed, fast-talking scoundrels seem loveable. He is now starring as the title character in "Fred Claus," a merry Christmas comedy that is perfectly safe for families, unlike his $200 million comedy hit from 2005, "Wedding Crashers."   VINCE VAUGHN - Vince Vaughn stars as Santa's bitter older brother in the comedy 'Fred Claus.'

Holiday kitsch got a jump-start from "Fred Claus," and holiday mayhem fires off an early round with "P2." But there remains, abundantly, the delightfully premature ripping into packages for the coming season.   THE STRETCH RUN - As Hollywood gallops to the 2007 finish line, a broad lineup (Alvin and the Chipmunks! Francis Ford Coppola!) promises a photo-op finish. A strong contender is the drama 'Darfur Now,' a documentary by Ted Braun. CNS Photo courtesy of ... [full story]
