'Producers' was better as a Broadway musical


‘THE PRODUCERS’
‘THE PRODUCERS’
There are a couple of lessons that we can glean from the movie version of the Broadway musical hit "The Producers" (Universal, 1 star).

The first, don't let the director of a massively successful Broadway play direct the movie.  Second, when the story's creator says don't pretend it is anything other than a Broadway musical, don't listen.

SENIOR DRIVING
SENIOR DRIVING
Pat Knobloch started driving a Model T Ford at age 12 at a time when gasoline was 16 cents a gallon.

Now 89 years old with eye problems, Knobloch had to stop driving in January.

"It has meant changing my whole life," Knobloch said. "My wife doesn't drive. So now I'm having to depend on other people to take me where I want to go."

Remote-control shades put privacy at your fingertip

Q: The windows in our great room are ridiculously tall. I mean, I have no clue what to put on them - curtains, shades, sheers? - but the glare is annoying and the sun is beginning to fade the sofa and chair upholstery. What can I do? We don't want to cover them up permanently.

A: Stop squinting: there are answers to out-of-reach windows. One solution might be a window film. Virtually invisible films do a laudable job of blocking the ultraviolet rays that can damage everything in their path, including works of art, wood floors and furniture. One source to check out is www.vista-films.com or call (800) 345-6048.

New anti-aging technique may spare you the nip and tuck


PULLING STRINGS
PULLING STRINGS
Karen Hogue isn't trying to look 20. Or 30, even. A mother of two teenage girls, the 51-year-old Southern Californian isn't ashamed of her age. Still, when it comes to looking a little bit younger, she's not opposed to some outside help.

"I don't like women who try to act like they're 21 when they're 50," said Hogue, who last year underwent an anti-aging procedure called a Contour ThreadLift to lift the drooping skin around her jaw line. "I'm doing this to soften the aging effect, not take it away."

Get down in brown - swimwear's newest color wave


SWIM FASHION
SWIM FASHION
If you've got a craving for a taste of something new when it comes to your swim wardrobe this season, then you'll love to dive into the latest color palette washing ashore in stores for spring and summer. Chocolate brown is fast becoming the most delicious hue to suit up in when it's time to make a fashion splash at the pool or on the beach.

While "the little black suit" will always be a timeless classic, brown is the toast of swim designers who have put their collections for spring and summer into neutral. It's just natural that the softer color would spill over into the swim scene.

'Munich' a powerful history-based drama


MUNICH
MUNICH
Any moment now, God is going to call up and say that "eye for an eye" thing in the Bible was all a big mistake. "Hey," says God, "the world was young and we - OK, I - wasn't sure about order and chaos. So we - I - took the obvious route: retribution.

"At the time, retribution seemed a good way to maintain equilibrium among the masses. You hit me and I'll hit you back," explained God on the "Larry King Show."

Author: We have the tools; we know how to behave


HOW TO BEHAVE
HOW TO BEHAVE
Once upon a time, people were mean to each other. There was fighting and selfishness and suffering.

Then came religion, ideologies that taught that you should treat others the way you would want to be treated.

And it was good. For a little while anyway.

So writes Karen Armstrong in her newest book dealing with the early days of religions. Her forte is the big picture - with a library that includes "A History of God," "The Crusades and Their Impact on Today's World" and "The Battle for God."

PATENT OFFENDING

In October 1976, an Alaska pipeline engineer named John Moore became seriously, mysteriously ill. Eventually, he found himself at the UCLA Medical Center, where he was diagnosed with a rare, progressive form of blood cancer called hairy cell leukemia.

To slow the disease and perhaps save his life, Moore's physician - Dr. David Golde - recommended removing Moore's spleen. The surgery was successful. Moore recovered and eventually returned to Alaska, with instructions to visit Golde for annual checkups.

Big like a Buick: Lucerne is stylish, impressive, comfortable - and large


BUICK LUCERNE
BUICK LUCERNE
There's something about a big Buick with a rumbling V-8 that suits the new Lucerne sedan and the brand.

Way back when, Buick was known as the doctor's car. It had some luxury, but wasn't as conspicuous as a Cadillac.

The marketing message since then has wandered, if not become hopelessly lost. The image now is that of the "retiree's car."

Not good. Not even fair. There are plenty of Americans who could enjoy a smartly styled large car such as the Lucerne.

Fashionable tour of duty: 100 years of khakis


LOVE THE ORIGINAL
LOVE THE ORIGINAL
Saaaalute! Yes, it's time to give those good ol' khaki pants a round of applause. After 100 years as an American icon - from durable work wear to rugged military uniforms to debonair Hollywood cool - the twill fabric called khaki continues to make history on the American fashion scene.

"Everyone loves an original and, like denim, khakis have a rich and authentic history that has endured and evolved to reflect the needs and styles of each new generation," says Jim Tibbs, senior vice president of design for Dockers, the brand of khakis that claims to have made its way into seven out of 10 closets of American men.

Keaton's become the mom of the moment


THE FAMILY STONE
THE FAMILY STONE
When did Diane Keaton go from being the woman every guy wanted to being everyone's mom?

Probably when Jack Nickolson traded up from daughter Amanda Peet to mom (Keaton) in the hit comedy "Something's Gotta Give." Before that she was cute, desirable and a bit airy.

Once you're a mom, though, you don't go back.

Mastering your camera's modes


Most people don't want to mess with a digital camera's settings. Manufacturers realize this and are making it easier to get a great shot every time. It's done with presets called modes, one of which will make your subjects look 10 pounds thinner. Let's say it's your child's birthday. The lights are low and the candles on the cake are glowing. You'll want a slow shutter speed to capture more light. But when the kids go outside and play in the sunlight, you'll want a faster shutter speed.
