was reminded why I got into journalism last week, when I was assigned to cover Charleston Fashion Week. Even though it was hectic, I really love the rush of doing stories on the fly and coming up with a different angle every day for the event. With multimedia being a bigger part of the job, the added tasks of tweeting and shooting video also were fun. You’ll see that same type of coverage in The Post and Courier for the Family Circle Cup (starting Saturday) and Saturday’s Bridge Run. Stay connected to postandcourier.com/familycircle and postandcourier.com/bridgerun.

7 P.M. APRIL 9 // NORTH CHARLESTON Kulture Klash is back. The multimedia, eclectic arts festival will be 7 p.m.-2 a.m. April 9 at Noisette at the Navy Yard, 10 Storehouse Row in North Charleston. The festival features local artists, musicians, DJs and dancers and is usually one of the wildest events in the Holy City. Information about KK7 is sparse at this point, so visit www. kultureklashartsfestival.com for updates on tickets and the full lineup of artists. JOHNNY PUNDT

Happy 100th,

Freddie Green

ERIN FORNADEL

An illustration of Freddie Green by Lowcountry artist Robert Washington.

appy birthday, Freddie. Yes, I believe I can say that directly to Freddie Green, one of Charleston’s favorite sons, even though he died in 1987. His flesh and bones passed away that year, but his spirit will live forever, given his contributions to American culture through jazz music. Green was the rhythm guitarist in the Count Basie Orchestra for just about 50 years, joining the band after it rolled into New York City in 1937 to begin changing the face of American music. He is credited with having the longest running gig in show business. The Basie Band was the musical touchstone of the swing era. Yes, there was Fletcher Henderson, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller and many others, but nobody swung like Basie, the band’s pianist as well as bandleader. Green, aka Mr. Rhythm, was called by Basie “my left hand.” His unusual in-the-pocket strumming propelled the band to heights of artistry and musicianship and its listeners to ecstasy. Consider this: Green was in the Basie Band longer than Basie, so to speak. The Count died in 1984. The Basie Band, still playing, is the role model for the Charleston Jazz Orchestra. Not many of its concerts have gone on without some tune from Basie’s book. It’s another way Green is still alive to me. When I hear CJO guitarists John Oden and Lee

ACE’S ON BRIDGE By BOBBY WOLFF

In today’s deal most declarers, if pressed, would admit that they would be unlikely to go down in six spades unless they lost two diamond tricks. Accordingly, they should direct their efforts to catering for bad splits in that suit. The normal way to play the slam is to take the heart king with the ace and draw trumps in two rounds. Then come the club ace and king, a club ruff to strip off the clubs, and a heart ruff in dummy to get rid of that suit. The stage is set to play diamonds to best advantage. At this point declarer leads a diamond to his jack. If it loses to a singleton king, West must concede defeat at once by giving a ruff-sluff. If West could play back the diamond seven, declarer inserts dummy’s eight and is protected against any lie of the cards. If West could return the 10, declarer runs this around to his ace and can finesse against West if he has the two remaining diamonds. What if the diamond jack scores, as it would do in the diagramed layout? Declarer

now must take care to lead a low diamond from hand and duck in dummy (or if feeling really greedy, cross to dummy with a trump to lead a diamond toward his ace, intending to duck unless the king appears). This line insures the contract. Either the diamonds will be split, or East will be endplayed to lead a diamond into the split tenace or give a ruff-sluff.

went to Friday night’s show during Charleston Fashion Week. I had an outfit picked out (dark-wash jeans, white sequin tee, black boucle jacket, black clutch, cocktail ring, dangling silver earrings), but the shoes were a big question mark. I’m not a high heels kind of girl, which is strange considering I’m 5 feet 2 and could definitely benefit from some additional height. But if there’s one place where high heels are de rigueur, it’s a fashion show. As for the fashion show itself, all I can say is “Wow.” People in Charleston really know how to bring it. I have never seen so many chic, fabulous looking people in one place before.

Acoustic Syndicate Saturday at Pour House

It’s pretty rare when a popular punk rock band visits Charleston. After all, the Holy City isn’t exactly known for punk music. Reno Divorce is not quite as big of a name in the punk world as Mike Watt, who visited last week, but the Denver-based band is bringing back the punk ’n’ roll sound that helped cauterized the hemorrhaging popularity of the punk movement during the late ’80s and early ’90s. Reno Divorce will perform tonight at The Pour House, 1977 Maybank Hwy., with The Defilers and Royal Tinfoil. Tickets are $8 at the door. Doors open at 9 p.m., show starts at 10. Call 5714343 or visit www.charlestonpourhouse.com.

After nearly two decades as an enduring band, Acoustic Syndicate is as respectable as they come. For years, Acoustic Syndicate, which hails from North Carolina, has written and performed progressive bluegrass with a country twang and a little funkiness, resulting in an overall feelgood style that is equal parts soothing and electric. Acoustic Syndicate will perform two sets Saturday at The Pour House, 1977 Maybank Highway. Tickets are $13 in advance, $15 the day of the show and are available at the door or online at www.etix.com. Doors open at 9 p.m., show starts at 10. Call 571-4343 or visit www.charlestonpourhouse.com for more information.

Georgia-born and Atlantabred, Skye Paige has the special ability to understand both the dusty back roads of country music and the neon glow of big-city rock. It’s a perspective that has lent itself to both her music and her burlesque shows. Now living in Charleston, Paige injects her blues and country roots with a sultry shot of rock ’n’ roll and ’50s pin-up fashion. It’s not all about image with Paige, however, as the singer/songwriter and guitarist took home first place at the House of Blues’ “Battle of the Blues” in 2009. Skye Paige and The Original Recipe will perform Tuesday at Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ, 1205 Ashley River Road. Doors open at 9 p.m. Visit www.hometeambbq.com or call 225-7427. – By Matthew Godbey Special to The Post and Courier

Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers RARE BIRD ALERT (Rounder)

We all know Steve Martin the Movie Star or Steve Martin the Comedian, but until a couple of years ago, not a lot of folks knew Steve Martin the Bluegrass Artist. Sure, Martin is well-known for his banjo playing, having incorporated it into his comedy acts for years. It wasn’t until 2009, when he recorded “The Crow” with bluegrass group The Steep Canyon Rangers that we saw just how adept Martin was at playing that “old-timey” music. Martin and the Rangers, who met while Martin was visiting North Carolina a few years ago, hit it off well; so well in fact that after that the first album and a subsequent tour, the men saw fit to record and release a second volume of bluegrass music. While some may argue that Martin’s name alone will sell records despite the quality of the music, in truth The Steep Canyon Rangers were already well-recognized in the industry for their musical talents. This is a beautiful recording, with tracks such as “Jubilation Day” and “The Great Remember (for Nancy)” giving bluegrass lovers exactly what they want. Special guests Paul McCartney and The Dixie Chicks lend vocals to “Best Love” and “You,” respectively. There is even a live recording of Martin’s famous novelty song “King Tut,” which gets a good bluegrass reworking. He might be a “wild and crazy guy” in his comedy act, but on “Rare Bird Alert,” Martin’s business is bluegrass, and lately business is great. KEY TRACKS: “Go Away, Stop, Turn Around, Now Come Back,” “Women Like to Slow Dance,” “King Tut.”

Duran Duran ALL YOU NEED IS NOW (S-Curve)

It would have been interesting to watch Duran Duran make the transition from ’80s pop stars to present day has-beens. One problem though: Apparently, Simon Le Bon and the rest of the Double-D crew apparently never got the memo that the group was supposed to be washed up by now. Sure, the band has experienced some lean years and career missteps since the height of its power in the early 1980s with hits such as “Hungry Like the Wolf” and “The Reflex.” But like a determined prize-fighter, Duran Duran has always gotten up, shaken itself off and continued fighting. “All You Need is Now” is the band’s 13th studio album, and on this outing the band seems to have captured a bit of the magic that first gained it notice in the early days of MTV. Produced by Mark Ronson, “All You Need is Now” allows the listener to recall Duran Duran’s glory days without beating them over the head with nostalgia. There are definitely ’80s elements to the music, but since many of today’s younger artists are gravitating toward that sort of sound, Duran Duran sounds hipper than it probably should. Le Bon’s voice is as strong as ever, and songs such as “Blame the Machines” and “Girl Panic!” remind one of those sythhappy days. If you were waiting for the great album that should have come after Duran Duran’s 1982 breakthrough “Rio,” then this just might be it. KEY TRACKS: “Blame the Machines,” “Other People’s Lives” “Girl Panic!”

Soundgarden LIVE ON I-5 (A&M)

When Soundgarden released its breakthrough album, “Badmotorfinger,” in 1991, it was a time when music was shaking off the hair metal hangover and turning to the new thing on the street; grunge. Along with its Seattle cohorts Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Alice in Chains, Soundgarden rode that grunge wave through two more albums, “Superunknown” and “Down on the Upside,” and heavy touring. In 1997, the band called it quits. There has been a couple of greatest hits packages put out over the last decade or so, and Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell has found success as both a solo artist and a member of the now defunct Audioslave. Many fans, however, have always felt that the Soundgarden train came to an abrupt halt way too early. Early last year the band announced it was reuniting. The resulting tour proved that 12 years had not dampened the enthusiasm of the band’s fans. As part of the celebration surrounding the reunion, Soundgarden has released “Live On I-5,” the band’s very first collection of live tracks. Taken from the band’s 1996 tour, the title refers to Interstate 5, which runs along the Pacific Coast of the United States. Each live track was recorded in California, Oregon, Washington or British Columbia. The tracks find a band that still sounds hungry despite its success and really gives no hint at the approaching implosion. Some of the better performances include “Spoonman,” “Rusty Cage” and “Fell On Black Days.” While not every track rocks, there is still enough great live material among the 17 tracks here to delight any Soundgarden fan. KEY TRACKS: “Spoonman,” “Rusty Cage,” “Fell On Black Days.”

Dirty Bourbon River Show VOLUME TWO (Independent)

Music is meant to be an emotional experience. You get a certain feeling inside when you hear a good song or album. And while I can only speak for myself, I am highly suspicious of any type of music that stirs no emotion in me, be it good or bad. Dirty Bourbon River Show will definitely cause the listener to feel something, although individual results may vary. Upon the first spin of the New Orleans’ band’s latest album, “Volume Two,” I felt quite a few things. The kickoff track, “Mad,” reminded me of my first time seeing Walt Disney’s “Dumbo” as a child, especially the “Pink Elephants on Parade” sequence, while songs such as “From Time to Time” and “The Day the Devil ...” makes one realize that there are other folks who can lay the vintage “old-timey” sound just as well as The Squirrel Nut Zippers and The Asylum Street Spankers. These guys are for real. They definitely feel what they play, and the CD simply oozes both authenticity and talent. If the idea of a mix of Dixieland jazz, blues, gypsy, Latin and early Americana music appeals to you, then Dirty Bourbon River Show demands your attention. KEY TRACKS: “Mad,” “The Day the Devil ...,” “Vendetta.”

attend the three-day festival. The festival is free, but some booths, like the restaurant booths, require $1 tickets or cash. Even though many people think the event is hosted by the town of Summerville, it’s actually hosted by and for the benefit of the Summerville YMCA. Profits from booth rentals and percentages of ticket sales go back to the YMCA, which then puts the money into financial assistance programs for Summerville families. It’s the YMCA’s biggest fundraiser. “We put the money right back into the community in the form of financial assis-

some traditional festival fare, including fried Snickers, homemade ice cream and kettle corn, according to Liz Graham, marketing director for the YMCA and one of the planners of this year’s festival. And there will be games and rides, like a carousel and a Tilt-A-Whirl. “The great thing is that it is a family event. It doesn’t relate to the night. It’s free, there’s no alcohol, so it’s safe and people aren’t rowdy. And really, there’s something for everyone to do whether they’re very young or very old,” Graham said.

The festival is 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday. What will be there? Nearly 200 arts and crafts vendors from across the state and as far away as Colorado and New Hampshire will be selling clothing, jewelry, woodwork, photography, ceramics and more in their booths. About 90 local businesses and several dozen nonprofit organizations also will have booths. Sixteen restaurants will participate in the Taste of Summerville, and food and specialty gourmet vendors will also be selling products. Food vendors will have

tance,” Graham said. .”Especially with this economy, we’ve seen more and more people needing the financial assistance,” so profits can help subsidize membership fees.

Among its many programs, the YMCA has a large youth sports program, gymnastics and guitar lessons. “We also offer afterschool care at three locations, and many of those

kids are on financial assistance. Otherwise, they’d have to go home to an empty house, but instead they’re coming here.” About 15,000 people belong to the Summerville YMCA, according to Graham. This year, College of Charleston tourism students will track attendance and survey the economic impact of the festival. The YMCA already hosted the Flowertown Run a few weeks ago, which is “a good warm-up” for this weekend’s Cooper River Bridge Run. This year’s Flowertown Run was the largest yet with about 1,200 participants. Pets are not allowed at the festival. Parking is available on the streets or in the Richardson Street parking garage. Or park in the Berlin G. Myers/ U.S. Highway 78 parking lot. This year, the Y will run free shuttles throughout the day from that lot to the festival.

The wave start will require a strict enforcement of the corrals by volunteers, who may have to act like bouncers in enforcing who gets in which corral. Hopefully, everyone will cooperate and the wave start will give people more room to run and walk.

The biggest change in this year’s race, which starts at 8 a.m. Saturday on Coleman Boulevard in Mount Pleasant, will be the long-anticipated and long-discussed wave start. Wave starts, in a nutshell, involve organizing runners in corrals of several thousand, from fastest to slowest, and starting them at intervals, or waves, from a minute and half to five minutes. The only 10Ks bigger than the Bridge Run, Atlanta’s Peachtree and Colorado’s Bolder Boulder, have long used them. In running columns in 2004, 2005 and 2006, I urged the Bridge Run to implement a wave start because of increasing numbers of complaints of congestion on the course as the race got bigger. The suggestion, initially, was met with stiff resistance by race officials because of the extra logistics and work involved with it. But starting in ’06, staffers began observing how Peachtree and Boulder implemented wave starts. The Bridge Run started the process toward a wave start in 2007 with efforts to corral runners and to purchase the fencing necessary to enforce the corrals. Now with four years of corralling practice, the Bridge Run is finally ready to proceed with its first wave start. The Bridge Run’s first wave start, more modeled after Peachtree than Boulder, is set for three minute breaks between sub-corrals of runners. After elite, seeded and sub-40-minute runners start

The Pines at the Woodlands Inn offers value-priced dining EDITOR’S NOTE: This review is on the casual dining location of The Pines, not the more formal dining experience of The Dining Room. BY DEIDRE SCHIPANI

Special to The Post and Courier

‘C

hange you can believe in” are the operative words at the Salamander Resort managed property Woodlands Inn in Summerville. New owner Johnny Linton and his family are taking steps to take the starch out of a Woodlands Inn experience and replace it with the finish of a well-polished gem. Recognized as one of only six properties in North America to have earned the Forbes’ Five Star and AAA’s Five Diamond rating in both food and lodging, it is unparalleled. It managed to acquire top AAA’s highest grades for food and accommodations while without an executive chef after the departure of Nate Whiting last fall. This speaks volumes to the quality of the kitchen staff and executive sous chef’s Sean Diehl’s strengths. In November, the Woodlands Inn brought on board as executive chef California native Andrew Chadwick, whose responsibilities include the more formal The Dining Room, the casual Pines Cafe and Bar as well as the inn’s private events and catering operations. Chadwick is well-schooled for these tasks. He has owned and operated his own namesake restaurant, Andrew Chadwick’s at Rutledge Hill (Nashville). He opened the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort (Calif.); was the executive chef at the Meadowood Napa Valley Resort; and did a stint at a Ritz-Carlton property in St. Thomas. Chadwick is taking advan-

tage of his local suppliers and purveyors along with cultivating a kitchen garden on the grounds of the inn. For this review, we focused on the Pines Cafe and Bar. The menu is considered “allday dining” and offers small plates along with soups and salads as well as sandwiches and entrees. The price points are considerably lower than The Dining Room, where appetizers cost $9-$24 compared to $11-$20 in the Pines. Dining Room entrees in the $36-$50 range make the Pines prices of $16-$22 a bargain. Value is the operative word that describes the experience. The staff is attentive. And it was clear that the more casual dining experience was garnering weekday guests for the inn. Woodlands over-all price points are high. But kudos to the owner and staff for providing opportunities to enjoy the inn for occasions other than “big events.” The wine menu at the Pines is nicely priced and the “wines of the moment” program with whites for $7 a glass and reds for $8 are competitive with any menu around town. The house-made breads and biscuits are served with Plugra butter: plain and honey-pecan seasoned. The sourdough rolls and tender biscuits were well-crafted, although the described flavors of blue cheese and walnuts in the biscuits escaped us. A lobster bisque ($9) was classic in its preparation and flavors. Chicken and cashew spring rolls ($11) nod to Southeast Asia and are best enjoyed by placing in the soft butter lettuce leaf and dipping in the chili sauce that possesses both heat and sweet. Fried sepia or cuttlefish

replaces the ubiquitous “calamari” at the Pines. Its $20 price tag was a deterrent. The Caesar salad ($10) has not been tinkered with and can be embellished with grilled chicken ($4) or marinated shrimp ($7). Lovers of lobster rolls will be pleased with the lobster BLT ($21) on sweet and buttery brioche served with a stack of pont-neuf potatoes fried in duck fat. Simply fried chicken breast ($18) demonstrated the art of the fryer and its side of bacon ranch dressing an herbal wash that partnered well with the buttermilk crust. The burger was grilled lamb ($16) and it was topped with feta cheese and Piquillo peppers. These “little beak” Spanish chilies marry well with lamb. If the veal cheeks ($22) are on the menu, do have an order. They were accompanied by a potato puree that was edible heaven. The fish of the day was

John Dory ($26), sometimes called St. Peter’s fish. Firm, delicate, almost nutty, its pale color cried out for a splash of edible adornment. It was accompanied by those same delicious potatoes and well-turned root vegetables that were a tad undercooked. All desserts are priced at $10 and the pears and pistachios proved elusive when it came to the flavor. The pear had the same fate as the root vegetables, not quite as tender as one would expect. However, its chocolate filling was stellar and speaks well to the chocolate cake with ganache on the menu. Attentive, polite service marked our experience. Our server was not as wellschooled on preparations as the caliber of this establishment would require. Easy to train for. And all the attributes of the powerful kitchen producing higher-priced entrees in The Dining Room can be yours at a smaller cost.

All Smiles in Summerville Special to The Post and Courier

D

own along little Main Street in Summerville, a coffee and tea shop calls out, attending to its visitors in casual comfort. Its name: the fittingly titled Single Smile Cafe. Gracious and goodtempered, the bistro opened nine months ago. Single Smile emphasizes its soups, sandwiches, gourmet coffees and specialty teas. And as beverages go, the cafe delivers — undoubtedly. The cafe offers about 50 varieties of teas, in addition to espressos and freshly brewed coffees. A typical latte yields smooth appeal, tasting like a nice home brew. More remarkably, the cafe also features about a dozen or so kinds of root beer.

if you go WHAT: Single Smile Cafe. ADDRESS: 100 S. Main St., Summerville. PHONE: 875-7745. HOURS: 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Sun.; 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Mon.-Tues.; 8 a.m.6 p.m. Wed.; 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Thur.; 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Fri.-Sat.

Meanwhile, the menu fixes on clean, fresh items. Take a peek: smoked salmon on a bagel; homemade pimiento cheese on toasted bread; or a sampling of shrimp salad, chicken salad, egg salad and tuna salad. Tastefully presented, a trio of the salads (plus fruit) runs $7.48. The egg salad is creamy in texture, the

shrimp comes with crunchy pieces of celery, and, oh, but if we could recreate the tuna salad at home. Single Smile also makes fresh the soups ($3.75), including chicken vegetable noodle, butternut squash, red pepper and wild mushroom, she-crab and a hearty tomato basil bisque. Other items include a Jimmy Dean sausage, egg and cheese croissant; a turkey, bacon and cheese quesadilla; and a ham, bacon and cheese melt on croissant. An unusual selection of magazines sits at the ready (Foam, anyone?), the same for purchasable collections of tea sets and dishes. The cafe makes an ideal setting for slipping into the morning, sipping coffee or enjoying delicious cakes and pastries, both courtesy of Saffron Bakery.

L

ong a staple of the cocktail party scene in Charleston and throughout the coastal south, it seems as if everyone’s mother knows how to make a mean pickled shrimp.

and citrusy. Best of all, it’s a cinch to make. While the idea of pickled shrimp might bring visions of your grandmother and her silver platter to mind, thanks to Craig Deihl of Cy-

press, pickled shrimp is en vogue once again. Way more than an accompaniment for your Bloody Mary, this pickled-shrimp dish could stand alone as a small entree.

There are around 20 rock shrimp. That’s a lot of shrimp for a $12 appetizer. Add to that some of the freshest and loveliest produce I’ve seen in a while, this dish was satisfying all by itself. Deihl says that the dish will be on the seasonal side of the menu as an appetizer, and will probably take the place of the shrimp and grits. The shrimp in this dish are great, but the produce is the real star.

According to Deihl, “The dish was really inspired by the black cherry tomatoes from Kurious Farms. They were so beautiful and we had their cucumbers, too, and I just thought that was a perfect dish to showcase the product.” Kurious Farms is a hydroponic farm in Moncks Corner. They have more than 1,500 plants, including tomatoes, cucumbers and some of the best bibb lettuce you have ever eaten.

In addition to the produce from Kurious, Deihl uses The Chef’s Garden in Huron, Ohio, for many of his dishes at Cypress. In the pickled shrimp, you will find its baby carrots, celery, turnips and parsley. The dish is finished with the pickle juice and a lemon olive oil. For $12, my money is on this dish to be one of the most talked about appetizers of spring in Charleston.

‘Source Code’ dazzles until the end BY CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Critic

D

uncan Jones’ first film, the mesmerizing, sci-fi character drama “Moon” from 2009, was a marvel of efficiency, tension and pacing. It signaled the arrival of an artist with an appreciation for the past but also with his own clear, unique voice, ready to leave a distinctive stamp on the culture. And it was the best movie of the year, according to this critic, at least. “Source Code” represents his evolution as a director, now that he has a bigger cast and more expensive toys to play with. It’s swifter, glossier, more ambitious. And for a long time, it’s a thrilling and challenging puzzle based on a clever idea, until it pushes its central gimmick and gets too greedy at the end, that is. It’ll make your brain hurt (in a good way) trying to determine whether it all makes sense until it quite obviously and frustratingly doesn’t make sense anymore. It also aims for some emotional connections it doesn’t fully develop. Maybe we’re nitpicking needlessly, and should just let ourselves go with it. Still, it leaves you with the nagging sensation that this is a good film that could have been great if only it had quit while it was ahead. Based on a script by Ben Ripley, “Source Code” keeps us as consistently confused and off-guard from the start as its main character, U.S. Army Capt. Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal). And, to be fair to you, it’ll be tough to describe what happens here without giving the aforementioned fun-of-thepuzzle away. But we’ll try. A decorated soldier from the battle in Afghanistan,

movie review ★★★ (of 5)

DIRECTOR: Duncan Jones. STARRING: Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, Jeffrey Wright, Michael Arden. RATED: PG-13 for some violence including disturbing images, and for language. RUN TIME: 1 hr. 34 min. WHAT DID YOU THINK?: Find this review at www.charlestonscene.com and offer your opinion of the film.

Colter wakes up one morning, disoriented, on a commuter train heading toward Chicago. Across from him is a sweet and beautiful woman (Michelle Monaghan) whom he’s never seen before, yet she’s talking to him with the familiarity of a friend. He takes a quick glance at himself in the bathroom mirror and is startled to discover he’s in the body of another man, one he doesn’t know. Within minutes, the train has blown up, killing everyone on board, but Colter suddenly finds himself still alive, strapped inside a crude metal pod, communicating by monitor with an Air Force captain (Vera Farmiga). She explains that he’s part of a special assignment called “Source Code,” designed to allow him to enter the body of another man for eight minutes. His task is to gain valuable information and hopefully prevent a later, larger terrorist attack. And so Colter must go back and relive the same eight minutes over and over again, gleaning more details each time. Yes, this will probably remind you of “Groundhog Day,” but this is also where “Source Code” is at its most zippy and compelling — and, strangely, at its most plausible. Gyllenhaal, who helped developed the character, makes Colter’s fear, anger

Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright. and general discombobulation palpable, but “Source Code” also allows him some much-needed flashes of humor. The supporting cast is strong down the line, including Jeffrey Wright as the coldly driven brains of the operation, and even in the choice of actors on the train who only get a couple of lines, but have significance with each eight-minute goround. The score is a little insistent and intrusive, especially compared to the gorgeous and haunting score from “Moon,” and Jones could have made more of an impact at times with silence. But we should probably quit while we’re ahead, too, and let you discover the secrets of “Source Code” for yourself and decide whether they actually add up.

Girl’s change in attitude dismaying

Remembering Elizabeth Taylor

D

BY REBEKAH BRADFORD

Special to The Post and Courier

L

ast week, millions of people mourned the death of a true Hollywood legend. Elizabeth Taylor was as famous for her complicated personal life as she was for her film roles, but she was also represented old Hollywood glamour. This week, we honor one of the greats. Caroline Pope is being challenged by Steve Dunleavy, who’s working on a novel.

QUESTIONS 1. Where was Elizabeth Taylor born? 2. Her performance in what film made her a star? 3. Who played her father in the movie “Father of the Bride?” 4. Rock Hudson played her husband in what film? 5. Her character Maggie the Cat was from what movie? 6. Taylor was the first actress to earn a million dollars for her role in what film? 7. What color were Elizabeth Taylor’s eyes? 8. Taylor appeared solo on the cover of “People” magazine 14 times. Who’s the only person to be on the cover more? 9. What man did she marry twice? 10. How many times did she marry?

THE ANDY WARHOL FOUNDATION FOR THE VISUAL ARTS/ARTISTS RIGHTS SOCIETY

Andy Warhol’s “Liz #5,” a 1963 silkscreen portrait of actress Elizabeth Taylor.

CAROLINE’S ANSWERS

1. California. 2. “Lassie.” 3. I haven’t even seen that movie. 4. Can we come back to this one? 5. Oh, “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” 6. I think it might’ve been for “Cleopatra.” 7. Weren’t they like a lavender? 8. JFK Jr. 9. Um, I don’t know. 10. A lot.

CONCLUSION Once again, a Head2Head trivia champ fails to make it to a second win. Pope was no match for Dunleavy who considers himself quite the film buff. We’ll see how he fares next week with a different topic.

DEAR ABBY “desperation.” — NOT DESPERATE IN LOUISIANA DEAR NOT DESPERATE: Recognize that for all of the joy Rick brings you, Janet is his extremely immature daughter and she’s part of the package. She appears to have years of growing up to do. You can’t change her behavior, so go on with your life without seeking her approval. Unfortunately, nasty ex-wives are nothing new. If the ex does anything beyond “threaten” you, file a police report. Write www.DearAbby.com.

STEVE’S ANSWERS

1. England. London, if you need specifics. 2. “National Velvet.” 3. Spencer Tracy. 4. “Giant.” 5. “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” 6. I’m not sure about this, but “Taming of the Shrew”? 7. Blue. No, purple-ish. 8. Princess Di. Probably. 9. Richard Burton. 10. Between 7 and 9.

CORRECT ANSWERS 1. London. 2. “National Velvet.” 3. Spencer Tracy. 4. “Giant.” 5. “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”

EAR ABBY: I am in my late 30s and have been dating “Rick” for six years. The problem is his daughter, “Janet.” We used to get along, but now she hates me. She calls me awful names and says she wishes I would go away. I recently asked Rick to marry me. Now Janet says I am “desperate,” and she refuses to talk to either of us. I don’t know what to say to her. I’m appalled at her attitude toward me, the language she uses and the things she’s saying about me to her friends on the Internet. She won’t listen to her dad. Her mother is encouraging her behavior and has been threatening me. I can’t get Janet to understand that her dad and I love each other, that it’s all right for a woman to ask a man to marry her and it’s not out of

6. “Cleopatra.” 7. Violet. 8. Princess Diana. 9. Richard Burton. 10. Eight
