NATIONAL PHONE REGISTRY REDUCES UNWANTED CALLS

DEAR ABBY: Many years ago you published a "Do Not Call" number for unsolicited phone calls. It worked great for a long time. I'm now starting to receive a lot of these calls again.

(Personally I never much cared for the film in two dimensions; I doubt I'll like it more in three. And yes, I know I'm in the minority on this.) Regardless, when you consider all the movies where boats of various sizes figure in the plot, you discover more riches than the Titanic could ever have carried. In fact, for the purposes of this piece, I'm consciously omitting all military/war films, since they would comprise (at least) one article all on their own. I'm also avoiding pirate movies for the same reason. That leaves ocean liner pictures, and films where smaller boats play a role. I've always appreciated how movies set on liners recreate a bygone era when travel could be calm and civilized. Other boat films may take us on-board a luxurious yacht, or show man pitted against the biggest and cru ...

In his acceptance speech, he said: "A writer worth his salt at all has an obligation not only to entertain but to comment on the world in which he lives." Mann later adapted the play for a 2001 production on Broadway, which featured Maximilian Schell from the 1961 film in a different role. In the introduction to the printed script, Mann credited a conversation with Abraham Pomerantz, U.S. Chief Deputy Counsel, for giving him the initial interest in Nuremberg. Mann and Kramer also collaborated on the film A Child is Waiting (1963). Working for television, he created the television series Kojak, starring Telly Savalas. Mann was executive producer, but was credited as a writer also on many episodes.
