Where do you hide a 1,000-pound chicken? That’s what sheriff’s deputies in Alexander County, N.C., are trying to figure out as they search for the concrete statue that disappeared from a chicken farm west of Taylorsville over the weekend. While the chicken may be heavy, it’s only 3 feet tall. Deputies think the statue was taken sometime between 8 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. Sunday from the driveway of the farm. (AP)

A Siberian husky at a Chinese animal hospital tried to stage a prison break by escaping its cage and freeing two other dogs, UPI reported Wednesday. Surveillance video showed the husky using its mouth to undo the latch on its cage and then two others. “We’ve been in the industry for six, seven years, [and no other dog] has opened the cage this way,” facility owner Cao Sheng said. The husky was stymied by a door with a pass-code lock. (EXPRESS)

The Washington region had the seventh-largest immigrant population in the country in 2010, with 21.8 percent of the population being foreign-born, according to a study from the Brookings Institution. Celebrity chef Jose Andres, an immigrant from Spain, announced on Twitter that he will be closing some of his restaurants in the region because of the boycott — three Jaleo restaurants, Zaytinya and Oyamel. Busboys and Poets owner Andy Shallal, an Iraqi immigrant and progressive activist, will also shut all six of his restaurants throughout the region.

Metro begins to cut ‘weakest link’ trains

MARYLAND

Lawmakers give AG more power to sue feds

Agency retires first of its 4000-series cars, least reliable in its fleet

FAIZ SIDDIQUI (THE WASHINGTON POST)

TRANSPORTATION As the truck pulled away from Greenbelt rail yard with car 4054, a dirty, dusty hunk of aluminum stripped of its Metro insignia, there was little of the nostalgia felt a year ago when the transit agency began retiring its original subway cars. “There he goes,” Metro General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld deadpanned, slipping in a wry quip. “It’s a very emotional moment.” Metro’s clunky 4000 series, riddled with door, propulsion and brake problems and never treated to a midlife overhaul like earlier models, reached the end of its life Wednesday, as the agency began retiring the first cars in the troublesome fleet. The railcars, which began arriving in 1991, have been in service a quarter-century, but leave behind a legacy of stalled trains, maddening delays and the unsettling image of doors opening mid-ride. “There are really three things that need to work on a train for it to go,” said Dan Tangherlini, who served as interim Metro general manager in 2006. “The doors, the propulsion system and the brakes. And the 4000 series just had an inability to keep all three of those things going.”

KALORAMA

Metro’s 4000-series cars were introduced in 1991 to supplement the initial portion of the Green Line and have caused rider headaches since.

The cars, made by Italian manufacturer Breda — which made two earlier series still in service — cost about $1.3 million apiece and logged about a million-and-a-half miles each during their lifespan. The 100-car fleet was floated into service to supplement the initial portion of the Green Line when it opened in 1991. And while they carried Metro through the completion of the original system in 2001 — as ridership boomed — the series has had to be pulled from service at least three times since then, according to the agency. In 2010, the cars were grounded because of reports that doors were opening before trains reached the platform. Five years later, the fleet was yanked again

for the same problem. By January, the 4000-series trains were performing four times less reliably than the agency’s newest trains — its 7000 series — as measured by one metric, the “mean distance between delays.” Compared with new trains that were traveling 165,000 miles between delays, and the next newest model, which clocked in over 100,000 miles, the 4000-series trains were registering a meager 25,000 miles between delays. Simply put: “It’s the weakest link in the chain,” Wiedefeld said. “The sooner we get those off of here, the more 7000s we get on the system, the better for our customers,” Wiedefeld said.

Report: Bullying rife at Fairfax fire department Outside study follows suicide of firefighter, 31, harassed in web forum FAIRFAX COUNTY Bullying, harassment and discrimination are perceived to be problems in parts of the Fairfax County Fire Department, and nearly 40 percent of firefighters responding to a survey had experienced or witnessed it, according to a report released Wednesday. The analysis of the culture of the Fairfax County Fire Department was commissioned by the county in the wake of the highprofile suicide of firefighter Nicole Mittendorff, who was the subject of sexist and derogatory comments on a local web forum before her death in April. It

remains unclear who posted the remarks on the Fairfax Underground forum, or whether they played a role Mittendorff in Mittendorff’s suicide, but fire department officials have been exploring whether the messages might have been posted by her colleagues. The death of Mittendorff, 31, and a series of lawsuits by other female firefighters alleging discrimination and sexual harassment prompted questions about the treatment of women in the department and touched off a discussion nationally about the low number of women in firefighting and the problems they face. The 53-page report by a management consultant group found strong dedication and pride

among the Fairfax department’s 1,400 rank-and-file firefighters, but also issues with bullying, senior leadership and conflict management. A survey that accompanied the report found that 37 percent of respondents either experienced or witnessed bullying, harassment and discrimination, and some thought the issues need to be proactively addressed by the department and the county. The report also found there was dissatisfaction with the top ranks of the department. “Poor leadership behaviors are driving a negative culture,” the report found. “These behaviors include a lack of accountability, lack of integrity, lack of consistency and most importantly, a lack of trust.” JUSTIN JOUVENAL (THE WASHINGTON POST)

‘Morning Joe’ bans Conway from show

Trump, who said he isn’t committed solely to a two-state peace plan, listens to Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu.

Trump urges Israeli PM to curtail settlements President sees avenue for him and friend ‘Bibi’ to broker a peace plan POLITICS President Trump directly called on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday to curtail Jewish home building in the West Bank, as he predicted that he can help broker an end to the decades-long IsraeliPalestinian conflict. “I’d like to see you hold back on settlements for a little bit,” Trump said as he welcomed Netanyahu to the White House for their first meeting since the Republican president took office. “We’ll work something out.”

In his most extensive remarks about the chances for peace in the Middle East, Trump said he “could live with” either a separate Palestinian state or a unitary state as a peaceful outcome. “I want the one that both parties want,” he said. The comments signal a significant departure from past U.S. policy supporting the goal of an independent Palestine alongside Israel. Both Republican and Democratic presidents have backed a future Palestine on West Bank land that is now mostly under Israeli military occupation. “I would like to see a deal be made. I think a deal will be made,” Trump said. “I know that every president would like to. Most of

them have not started until late, because they never thought it was possible, and it wasn’t possible because they didn’t do it. “But Bibi and I have known each other a long time,” Trump continued, using the leader’s nickname. “Smart man. Great negotiator. And I think we’re going to make a deal. It might be a bigger and better deal than people in this room even understand. “So let’s see what we do,” Trump said to Netanyahu. “Let’s try,” Netanyahu replied, but he did not look pleased. Both leaders indicated that they are now open to new ideas outside of a two-state solution.

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said Wednesday that she refuses to book Kellyanne Conway on “Morning Joe” — and that wasn’t even the harshest thing Brzezinski and co-host Joe Scarborough said about the counselor to the president. “I don’t believe in fake news or information that is not true,” Brzezinski said. “Every time I’ve ever seen her on television, something’s askew, off or incorrect.” Even more damning was the way the hosts characterized Conway as an attention seeker who texts TV producers in a constant effort to get on air, with Scarborough adding that she’s not even in any of the key White House meetings.

Congress votes to block Obama gun control rule POLITICS Congress on Wednesday sent President Trump legislation blocking an Obama-era rule designed to keep guns out of the hands of certain mentally disabled people. On a vote of 57-43, the Senate backed the resolution, just one of several early steps by the Republican-led Congress to undo regulations implemented by former President Barack Obama. The House had passed the measure earlier this year. The White House has signaled that Trump will sign the legislation. The Obama rule would have prevented an estimated 75,000 people with mental disorders from being able to purchase a firearm. It was crafted as part of Obama’s efforts to strengthen the federal background check system after the 2012 massacre of 20 students and six staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. The shooter had a variety of impairments. The rule required that the Social Security Administration provide names of beneficiaries with mental impairment who have a third party managing their benefits. But lawmakers, with the backing of the National Rifle Association and advocacy groups for the disabled, opposed the regulation. The American Civil Liberties Union said the rule advanced a harmful stereotype that people with mental disabilities are violent. KEVIN FREKING (AP)

Woman held in slaying of Kim’s half-brother KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA Malaysian police arrested a woman Wednesday in the apparent assassination of Kim Jong Nam, the exiled half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. His death, which reportedly came after an attack by two female assassins at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, set off waves of speculation over whether North Korea had dispatched a hit squad to kill him. The woman arrested was carrying Vietnamese travel documents bearing the name Doan

Thi Huong, and she was arrested at the airport’s budget terminal, where Kim Jong Nam, 46, was attacked. It was not immediately clear whether the passport was genuine. She was identified using earlier surveillance video from the airport, police said. Police said they were hunting for more suspects. No further details were released. Malaysia started an autopsy Wednesday to determine the cause of death. But a Malaysian government official, who demanded anonymity because of the case’s sensitivity, said North

Crises consume Trump GOP wonders when new administration will find time to implement the party’s priorities

Embattled pick for Labor opts to withdraw

POLITICS Less than a month into President Trump’s tenure, the White House is beset by a crush of crises. Divisions, dysfunction and high-profile exits have left the young administration nearly paralyzed and allies wondering how it will reboot. The bold policy moves that marked Trump’s first days in office have slowed to a crawl. A week after after the administration’s signature travel ban was struck down by a federal court, the White House is still struggling to regroup and outline its next move on that signature issue. It’s also been a week since Trump — who promised unprecedented levels of immediate action — has announced a major policy directive or legislative plan. His team is riven by division and plagued by distractions. This week alone, controversy has forced out both his top national security aide and his pick for labor secretary. “Another day in paradise,” Trump quipped Wednesday after his meeting with retailers was interrupted by reporters’ questions about links between his campaign staff and Russian officials. Fellow Republicans have begun voicing their frustration and anxiety that the Trump White House will derail their high hopes for legislative action. Sen.

raised is a distraction,” he said. Sen. John McCain of Arizona blasted the White House’s approach to national security as “dysfunctional,” asking, “Who is in charge? I don’t know of anyone outside of the White House who knows.” Such criticism from allies is rare during what is often viewed as a honeymoon period for a new president. But Trump, an outsider who campaigned almost as much against his party as for it, has only a tiny reservoir of good will to protect him. Officials have begun trying to change some tactics, and some scenery, with the hope of steadying the ship. The White House announced Wednesday that Trump, who has often mentioned how much he loves adoring crowds and affirmation from his supporters, would hold a campaignstyle rally in Florida on Saturday, the first of his term. The event, according to White

Trump blames media President Trump criticized the intelligence community and the media Wednesday for the news reports that ultimately led to national security adviser Michael Flynn’s resignation Monday night. “I think he’s been treated very, very unfairly by the media — as I call it, the ‘fake media,’ in many cases — and I think it’s really a sad thing that he was treated so badly,” Trump said at a news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Trump added that “things are being leaked” and that the leaks are a “criminal act.” (THE WASHINGTON POST)

House press secretary Sean Spicer, was being “run by the campaign” and it is listed on Trump’s largely dormant 2016 campaign website. Pinballing from one crisis to the next is not unprecedented, particularly for a White House

still finding its footing. But the disruptions that have swirled around Trump achieved hurricane force early and have not let up. On Wednesday, his choice for labor secretary, fast food CEO Andy Puzder, withdrew his nomination, as the administration continued to navigate the fallout from the forced resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn. Flynn’s departure marked the return of an issue Trump is not likely to move past quickly. The president’s relationship with Moscow will continue to be scrutinized and investigated. “When you are the White House, every day is a crisis. Crisis is routine,” said Ari Fleischer, who was President George W. Bush’s first press secretary. “But when they all come right on top of each other, particularly at the start of an administration, it starts to create the feeling that they don’t know how to run the place.” JONATHAN LEMIRE (AP)

POLITICS Andrew Puzder, President Trump’s choice to serve as the next labor secretary, withdrew his nomination Wednesday amid growing resistance in the Senate. “I am honored to have been considered by President Donald Trump to lead the Department of Labor and put America’s workers and businesses back on a path to sustainable prosperity,” Puzder said in a statement. In the hours leading up to his withdrawal, 12 Republican senators “at a minimum” were withholding support, according to one GOP senator, who asked for anonymity. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., had told the White House that Puzder lacked the votes needed to win confirmation, according to a senior Senate aide. Puzder, a restaurant executive and Trump campaign supporter, had attracted widespread criticism regarding his business record and personal background (he had a rancorous divorce more than 25 years ago). Many Senate Republicans balked at supporting him in part over taxes he belatedly paid on a former housekeeper not authorized to work in the U.S. Puzder — who has spent much of his career speaking out against wage and labor regulations — also faced Democrat-led attacks over his remarks about women and workers at his company, which owns Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. (AP/THE WASHINGTON POST)

ALL-STAR FILL-IN?

Beal trendy pick to take Love’s spot

Baker confident that ‘somebody always emerges’ for key role MLB Dusty Baker did not name a closer Tuesday when he met with reporters for the first time this spring. He did not outline a specific process by which he will choose one, nor even declare an outright competition, either. “Without a real, bona fide closer, s omebody a lways emerges,” Baker said. While he doesn’t yet know who will close, Baker reiterated that he won’t deploy a closer-bycommittee, “because when the phone rings I want guys to know, mentally, when they might be in the game.” Baker conceded that Blake Treinen and Shawn Kelley could pitch the ninth — or “somewhere back there” — but outlined concerns about each of them.

He would not rule out Koda Glover, but wondered aloud if the young right-hander “might be too bold.” Baker admitted that righthander Joe Nathan, who is 42 and has 377 saves, intrigues him. And Baker said another closing candidate could be on the way, because “who knows? Something else might be in the works.” Kelley has the typical closer’s repertoire, high-strikeout stuff and a long track record of missing bats. But in 191 /3 innings of ninth-inning work, Kelley pitched to a 6.05 ERA with a 7.25 strikeout-to-walk ratio. In the 35 innings he threw in the seventh and eighth innings, Kelley pitched to a 0.77 ERA with a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 9.6. Most concerning, Kelley, 32, has twice had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. “He seems a likely candidate, but we have to see — can his arm sustain?” Baker said.

WASHINGTON POST AND GETTY IMAGES

Nats’ strategy for closer is wait and see Clockwise from top left, Shawn Kelley, Blake Treinin, Joe Nathan and Koda Glover are all under consideration to earn the Nationals’ closer job.

What about Treinen? The right-hander with can’t-miss stuff struggled in 2015, both with pressure and lefties. He seemed to fix both in 2016, when lefthanded hitters hit .221 against him, and righties hit .225. In “high-leverage” situations — which baseball-reference.com defines as moments in which win probability can change dramatically — Treinen held opponents to a .194 batting average. But Baker said he would be cautious about making Treinin, 28, a closer before he’s ready. Glover’s candidacy will be tied to his health. Late last season, he

pitched through what he learned later was a torn labrum in his hip, one that could have been repaired surgically but that he chose to rehabilitate this winter. Glover allowed runs in just two of his first nine appearances in the majors. But he gave up runs in five of his last seven appearances, all of which came with pain in his hip. Glover’s high-90s fastball, developing arsenal and seemingly endless self-assurance make the 23-year-old a classic closer in the making — as long as last year’s struggles, or injuries, do not linger.

John Wall was the only Wizards player originally selected to the NBA All-Star Game this weekend in New Orleans, but there’s still a chance one of his teammates could join him. Cavaliers forward Kevin Love is out with a knee injury, and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will announce his replacement. In a Wednesday interview with ESPN, Wall said it should be Beal, who is averaging a careerhigh 22.3 points per game and shooting 40 percent from 3-point range. TNT analyst Reggie Miller and six of eight NBA.com writers polled agreed that Beal should get the nod. Warriors guard Klay Thompson told CSN this week that Beal is “very deserving.” (TWP)

NHL

Capitals get Gilbert in trade with Kings Washington has traded a conditional fifth-round pick to Los Angeles in exchange for Tom Gilbert. The defenseman cleared waivers earlier this month and will report to the Capitals’ minor league affiliate in Hershey, Pa. The Kings are retaining 20 percent of Gilbert’s $1.4 million salary, and the conditions on the 2017 pick are that the Capitals get past the second round of the playoffs and that Gilbert play in at least half the postseason games. Otherwise, Los Angeles will get nothing in return. Gilbert is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. The move provides insurance in case of injuries to Washington’s defense. Gilbert, 34, posted five points this season in 18 games with the Kings. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Mets to return to Army for final exhibition of year

Meet the first woman in charge of craft beer at Pizzeria Paradiso

BARS Pizzeria Paradiso owner Ruth Gresser has always been an advocate for gender equality in the restaurant world. Now, for the first time in the company’s 25-year history, her craft beercentric restaurants will have a woman in charge of the beer program. Drew McCormick, the assista nt beverage director for the Paradiso locations in

Georgetown, Dupont Circle and Old Town Alexandria, is taking over the role of executive beer director from Josh Fernands, who’s moving to Maine. McCormick, who has been with the company since 2013, will be in charge of filling the dozens of draft lines and bottle lists at all three bars, as well as coming up with the calendar of special events. It’s still relatively rare, especially at high-profile beer bars, to see a woman leading a beer program. “For me, being a woman in the beer industry is going to shape a lot of what I

do,” McCormick says. She was the driving force behind both the “Ladies’ Night” at Paradiso last September that featured beers from breweries that were owned by women or had prominent female brewers and the happy hour the restaurant hosted after last month’s Women’s March, which raised money for the League of Women Voters. McCormick’s favorite beer styles run the gamut and include hoppy IPAs and traditional English ales. Her “most recent passion project,” she says, is gruit, the ancient style of beer flavored with a mixture of herbs instead

of hops. On Feb. 1, she organized a celebration of International Gruit Day at Paradiso with nine gruits on tap. “I like to really nerd out about things,” she says. And that, Gresser says, is why McCormick was the first person she thought of for the job. “She has so much energy and brings a new, youthful perspective while still having that beer knowledge,” Gresser says. “She’s interested in things on the fringe, even within the craft beer industry. I like the idea that her interests are in the more esoteric and unique stuff.” FRITZ HAHN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Take this wife’s advice — please! Before you say ‘I do,’ follow comedian Jamie Lee’s ‘Weddiculous’ tips for planning your own nuptials

Comedian Jamie Lee is not a wedding expert. But that didn’t stop her from writing a book about the subject. “I consider myself someone who went through it and is willing to share the highs and the lows,” Lee says. Using her April 2016 nuptials as an example, Lee wrote “Weddiculous” as a how-to guide, dispelling many of the myths marketed by what she calls Big Bridal and offering helpful do’s and don’ts gleaned from her experience. Now Lee — a veteran of MTV’s advice show “Girl Code,” host of the podcast “Best of the Worst” and a writer for Judd Apatow’s new HBO series “Crashing” — is on her “Weddiculous” stand-up comedy tour, which lands at the DC Improv this weekend and features the book’s co-writer, comedian Jacqueline Novak.

weekendpass You write that your wedding was everything you hoped it would be. Do you still feel that way? I do. It was a really special time. I will say the thing that I really cling to the most is less the wedding and more just being able to get everyone I know together in the same space. A lot of my memory stems from conversations I had just bumping into them in the hotel. The wedding itself is less of a vivid memory.

all of the resources available to new brides — Pinterest, The Knot, Modern Bride — they really sweep all of the underbelly elements under the rug and then you’re just left with gorgeous centerpieces and gorgeous dresses. That’s why I felt compelled to write the book because there needs to be some kind of resource that tells people they’re not alone and also allows them to laugh at how ridiculous all this is.

What most surprised you about the process of planning a wedding? I was initially excited and then the drama started and I really did not think that was something I was going to have to do deal with. You don’t feel normal when you’re going through it. You really feel like an outcast because

The book puts the onus on the reader to figure out what means the most to them. The frustrating thing is that no amount of money is going to ensure perfection. You think it will … but the wedding market is a racket, so you’re going to be spending more and not necessarily getting the quality you

“All of the resources available to new brides … sweep all of the underbelly elements under the rug.” think you should get. And I think that’s what actually breeds the bridezilla thing. We talk about in the book how we really don’t like the term “bridezilla” because it’s like calling an opinionated woman pushy or mouthy or something. It’s almost a less offensive slur. You are spending so much and it’s still not ensuring the quality that you would think it would ensure, and that makes people lose their mind.

You’re not a wedding expert, you’re just someone who had one. Does that makes you as qualified to write a wedding book as a so-called expert? I in no way consider myself an expert. I’ve talked to friends after they had their weddings and they’ll say, “Oh my god, it was so fun! It was the best, wasn’t it?” And then there’s an awkward pause and we both take prolonged sips of water: “The photographer, though, let’s talk about that.” There’s something that they’re holding on to that they feel like they can’t say right away because it’s almost admitting defeat, and I think because I do stand-up comedy it’s very easy for me to lash out and explore those flaws. So I think in that way I am a good candidate for writing this book because I’m kind of taking

one for the team. Most people are like it’s too uncomfortable to discuss and confront, but I’m all about confronting it. To be clear: That’s the only thing that makes me more qualified. Anyone who’s gone through this can do it. Since this is your “Weddiculous” comedy tour, is your stand-up material wedding-heavy? The wedding stuff is where I start and then it links into other things: I talk about my bachelorette party, I talk about going to Vegas. It’s a throughline, but it’s not to the point where if you’re not married you’re not going to enjoy it.

SADIE DINGFELDER | THE STAYCATIONER

On a particularly gloomy winter afternoon, with the sky the color of dryer lint, I yearned for the humid, green breath of plants. So I went to the U.S. Botanic Garden, a cathedral-like greenhouse just southwest of the Capitol, walked into the Garden Court — the first of a series of greenhouse rooms — and inhaled deeply. Ahh, the sweet smell of … chlorine? “They just shocked the fountains,” I overheard a volunteer tell a visiting school group. Even with chlorine, the Botanic Garden’s indoor courtyard provides a welcome respite from winter for all sorts of Washingtonians. On the Thursday afternoon I visited, two men wearing what appeared to be congressional lapel pins chatted quietly on a bench, while a young woman worked on her knitting nearby. A weathered woman with a collapsible shopping cart stood gazing at a turquoise pool of water fringed with pink and purple flowers. Once I got my fill of this lovely scene, I headed to the Garden Primeval, to marvel at the Botanic Garden’s

re-creation of a Jurassic landscape, where ferns and mosses dominated before the rise of flowering plants. There, I ran into the tail end of a noontime tour. “Look among the ferns over here — you can see there’s a little dinosaur,” said a volunteer, gesturing toward an unusual garden ornament. “If you come back and visit us again, I’m sure it will be full-grown.” Brimming with a passion for plants, the tour guide led us back into the Garden Court, but I didn’t mind backtracking. With her help, plants and shrubbery that I had previously passed by revealed themselves to be resourceful survivors, making strategic alliances with alien species — or eating them alive. “The plants over here all found themselves in nitrogenpoor soil,” she said, explaining how plants in the legume family have developed nodules on their roots that house bacteria that turn nitrogen from the air into something that plants — and their neighbors — can use. Then the guide drew our attention to a pitcher plant, which secretes sugar and protein on the rim of its jugshaped leaves to lure insects to

Flora vacation: In the garden of garden-y delights

U.S. Botanic Garden pro tip | The guided weekday lunchtime tours are tops. a gruesome death. “If you look into a pitcher in the wild, you’ll see a lot of black skeletons from the insects they’ve digested.” “Gross,” I said. The tour guide ignored me and continued to regale us with disgusting pitcher plant facts. “In Borneo, there’s a huge pitcher plant that attracts tree shrews, which lick the sugar from the rims and then poop into the pitcher, which provides nitrogen for the plant. Some people call them ‘shrew toilets,’ ” she said at the tour’s conclusion. Thirsty for more plant facts, I loitered in the courtyard until the 2 p.m. tour — led by a

different volunteer — started up. “I don’t want to lecture at you,” my new tour guide said. “I want you to share your own experiences. Tell me about your relationships with plants, good and bad.” “Have you met anyone who’s had a bad relationship with a plant?” I said. “Not yet,” she said. The volunteer walked us to a strange-looking tree with yellow pods jutting from its trunk. “This is a cocoa plant,” she said. “It’s where chocolate comes from.” Then she pointed out a huge vine, which turned out to be that of the vanilla orchid. Suddenly, I noticed the whole garden court was overflowing with tropical fruit: Papayas, bananas and oranges hung heavily from their respective trees, ripe and delicious-looking. “Who gets to eat the fruit?” I

asked, salivating. “It’s federal property,” she said. “Don’t touch.” All the fruit they grow ends up getting composted or sent to other botanic gardens for propagation, the tour guide explained. “We don’t even get to eat it,” she said. Suddenly famished, but hesitant to commit a federal crime, I decided it was time for me to face the winter once again. So I peeled off of the tour and headed for the door. I know I missed a lot — the tropical rainforest room, for instance — but that would have to wait for another day. I was craving salad, and a quick Google search showed a Sweetgreen just a half-mile away. Plants may be clever and sometimes even deadly, but this round goes to the vegetarian with a smartphone.

Sobering pieces of history

RICHARD STRAUSS PHOTOS (NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AMERICAN HISTORY)

EXHIBITS As President Trump continues to make news with his executive orders, a new National Museum of American History exhibit reminds us of one particularly memorable — and damaging — such order enacted by Franklin Roosevelt on Feb. 19, 1942. Signed two months after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, Executive Order 9066 resulted in the imprisonment of more than 100,000 people of Japanese ancestry living on the West Coast of the U.S., two-thirds of whom were American citizens. The executive order didn’t specify Japanese-Americans as the target; rather, it gave the War Department the authority to remove from designated military zones anyone considered a threat to the U.S. People of Japanese heritage living on the West Coast were feared to be spies for the Axis powers and transported to “accommodations” set up by the military. “West Coast zones were seen as vulnerable for attack by Japan, so [the military] created a zone of exclusion” and kicked Japanese and Japanese-American residents out of it, says Jennifer Locke Jones, curator of “Righting a Wrong: Japanese Americans and World War II.”

To mark the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, the National Museum of American History will host its annual Day of Remembrance ceremony Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m. The event will feature a discussion with former internees. For more information, go to americanhistory.si.edu/ day-of-remembrance.

Junwo “Jimmy” Yamashita wore this uniform while serving in the U.S. Army’s 442nd Regimental Combat Team, a unit made up entirely of Japanese-Americans, many of them from the internment camps. Yamashita and two fellow company members were awarded the French Legion of Honor Medal in 2014.

Jingo Takeuchi made these Mickey Mouse sandals for his son Goro while their family was imprisoned at the Topaz camp in Santa Fe, N.M. More than 11,000 people were processed through Topaz between 1942 and 1945.

It’s OK to be nosy.

“The hysteria of a two-front war led to the executive order, and the military determined who it would exclude and remove.” Japanese-American families living in California, western Washington state, western Oregon and southern Arizona were rounded up and shipped off to internment camps further inland, where they lived under strict supervision until the war ended — and in some cases, up to a year afterward. “No charges were ever brought, and no one was ever found guilty of espionage,” Jones says of the internees, who were all effectively treated like spies during the war. Commemorating the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, the exhibit is bookended by a display of the original fateful document and the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, which issued an official apology and granted reparations. In between are more than 100 objects from the museum’s collection, and items newly

people

acquired from the families of the internees. These include official documents concerning the “evacuations,” birth and death certificates, family photos, ID tags, school yearbooks, newspapers, war medals and handmade art from various camps. One particularly memorable object is a box containing several hand-carved wooden birds, made by Sadao Oka from Monterey, Calif., while he was interned at the Poston camp in Arizona. Many internees — especially those too young or too old to work in the camps — found themselves spending hours on arts and crafts. “The older generation had a popular bird-carving workshop,” says museum specialist Noriko Sanefuji, who helped acquire many of the objects for the collection, including the bird box. “The birds are made from scrap wood and inspired by books and magazines. The focus on birds is symbolic for people who don’t have their freedom.” Many of these carved birds became buttons and pins, and boys in the camp would give them to their girlfriends as gifts. “The exhibition is about how life goes on,” Jones says. “You can’t right a wrong; you can only redress it.” ELENA GOUKASSIAN (FOR EXPRESS) National Museum of American History, 1400 Constitution Ave. NW; Fri. through Feb. 20, 2018, free.

Here’s looking at me

‘Self-Portrait With Stars,’ Jerome Skiscim Skiscim created this work by layering objects on a piece of photographic paper, painting it with chemicals and then exposing it to light, a process known as chemography. The rectangles with the geometric shapes inside (created with stickers and stencils) represent the analytical, digital realm, he says. “To me, it looks like math or logic.” The circle at the top represents a more organic, spiritual existence. The background, which Skiscim created by applying cooking spray before the photography chemicals, “represents the noise of the world and the noise of your thoughts,” he says.

D.C. ARTISTS PROBE A PHENOMENON WITH THE EXHIBIT ‘SELFIE: ME, MYSELF, AND US’ When drunk Australian Nathan “Hopey” Hope fell and bit through his lip in 2002, he didn’t know he was about to make linguistic history. “Sorry about the focus, it was a selfie,” he wrote on an online forum alongside a photo of his injury — the first known use of the term on record. “Selfies are ubiquitous and unavoidable. They’re everywhere,” says D.C.-based artist Brendan L. Smith. That’s why he and seven other local artists decided to put together a show exploring the practice, “Selfie: Me, Myself, and Us.” “Selfies raise interesting ideas about identity and how we project this false concept of ourselves online,” he says. Don’t look for glamorous Kim Kardashian-style pics in this exhibit, which opened Saturday and features multiple pieces from each participant. The artists — many of whom avoid social media — explore self-presentation and virtual worlds through sculpture, abstract painting and collage. One contributor, Jerome Skiscim, had never taken a selfie until a week before the show opened, when he needed a photo of himself to promote an artist talk. “I took 10 or 12 of them before I got something decent,” he says. “It’s the most awkward thing I’ve ever done.” SADIE DINGFELDER (EXPRESS) Flashpoint Gallery, 916 G St. NW; through March 11, free.

‘Selfie With Lips,’ Megan Maher Maher’s piece is a mixed-media self-portrait. “I lived in rural Indiana for a little bit as a kid, so I included a contour map of the county I lived in,” she says. She studied her lips closely before drawing them. “I was noticing all the cracks and lines that have shown up now, so I drew those, but then I also drew some [more lips] on a day when I was wearing lip balm, when the lines were filled in. It kind of reinforces what we do with our selfies on social media — taking photos over and over and trying to hide our imperfections.”

‘Etch A Sketch Bust,’ Michael Booker

‘Humanity Digitized,’ Brendan L. Smith Smith’s sculpture uses technology from a variety of eras to show how the urge to capture one’s image has spanned centuries. “There’s a Brownie camera from the ’50s as the head, and around the body there are a bunch of old tintype photos and cellphone circuit boards.” Taken together, the figurine captures “the idea that this human form is becoming a computer,” he says. “Eventually, maybe we just become our digital selves, like [in] ‘Tron.’ ”

Booker wanted to juxtapose the ephemeral with the eternal, so he painted the image of a marble bust as it might appear on an Etch A Sketch. “With an Etch A Sketch, you shake it and it’s gone, while marble sculptures are supposed to last forever,” he says. Both art forms, as well as selfies, represent an ultimately impossible quest to freeze time. “Even the bust is going to crumble eventually,” he says.

Happy deals are here

Sometimes you want more than cheap happy-hour wings and nachos after work. Maybe you’re trying to impress a date without breaking the bank, or you’ve decided to swear off fried food. Whatever your reason, check out these upscale-restaurant happy hours that go above and beyond, offering delicious food at great prices. EMILY CODIK, FRITZ HAHN AND BECKY KRYSTAL (THE WASHINGTON POST) Alta Strada 465 K St. NW; Mondays-Fridays, 3-7 p.m.; Fridays & Saturdays, 11 p.m.-1 a.m.

Goodies you can feel good about buying

APRIL GREER (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)

If you can grab two neighboring stools at Alta Strada’s classy, light-filled bar, you’re in for a very affordable date night. Start with a cocktail — a well-made boulevardier ($8), a classic Americano ($6) or just a glass of prosecco or Lambrusco ($6) — and then order a snack, perhaps the crunchy fried meatballs ($8). The menu includes two $7 pizzas (traditional margherita or sauce-free bianca), which can be customized with such $1 toppings as ’nduja, prosciutto, fried Brussels sprouts and broccoli rabe. You can come up with some interesting concoctions for about half the price of the pies on the dinner menu. Alta Strada’s crunchy beef, pork and veal shoulder meatballs are offered on the Italian spot’s happy-hour menu.

Hank’s Oyster Bar 633 Pennsylvania Ave. SE; Mondays-Saturdays, 3-7 p.m.; Sundays, 3-10 p.m.

Oyster happy hours are a dime a dozen in Washington, but the daily happy hour at the Capitol Hill branch of Hank’s Oyster Bar is exceptional. Take your pick of sweet or briny oysters (usually from Virginia) for $1.25 and then move on to heartier fare: battered-fish tacos topped with avocado and pico de gallo ($4 each); cheesy crab dip with house-made tortilla chips ($8); or lobster sliders on buttery brioche buns, served with a side of Old Bay-dusted fries ($14). Pair your food with $5 red, white, rosé or sparkling wines, or a $4 Narragansett tallboy. The deals are offered every day of the week,

but the best time to go is Sundays, when they run from 3 p.m. until close. You might be surprised by how many oysters you can slurp down over the course of a lazy afternoon.

Sushi Taro 1503 17th St. NW; MondaysFridays, 5:30-7 p.m.

Getting half-price sushi and alcohol is great anywhere, but Sushi Taro isn’t just anywhere. Consider this: The Dupont Circle spot earned a Michelin star last year, offering a prized omakase tasting menu with a price tag in the triple digits. Despite all the fanfare, you can visit the restaurant after work and pay 50 percent less for most of the sushi on the bar menu. The menu includes

$4 for two pieces of tuna nigiri, $3.75 for a yellowtail-and-scallion roll or, in simpler terms, a delicious dinner with drinks at one of the top restaurants in town for what could cost about $35 per person. The happy hour is extremely popular, and the bar has only 11 seats. So dine in small groups, show up early and be prepared to wait. It’ll be worth it.

Kapnos Kouzina 4900 Hampden Lane, Bethesda; daily, 3-7 p.m.

The large, modern bar at Kapnos Kouzina is the most inviting afterwork setting in Bethesda, where most happy hours are found at chains and sports bars. Vegetarians can do well here: Highlights from

the $6 “bites” menu include tangy, rice-stuffed dolmades, served with a smear of yogurt sauce; crispy kolokithokeftedes (zucchini fritters) with touches of dill and mint; and crunchy, spiced fried Greek potatoes. One of the better deals is a $12 sampler of any three spreads from the full dinner menu, including the melitzanosalata, with roastedand-smoked eggplant, feta cheese and walnuts. But even regulars will want to drop by for such only-athappy-hour items as the mini lamb gyros, marinated octopus and an IPA from Jailbreak Brewing in Laurel, Md. The $6 red and white wines rotate regularly. Don’t miss the Unfaithful, the best of the $7 cocktails, with a mix of bourbon, cider and mint.

SUNDRIES

Union Kitchen Grocery opens in Shaw

The second grocery shop from Union Kitchen, the food business incubator in NoMa, opened Monday at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. In addition to goods like ice cream and cocktail bitters from more than 100 local businesses, the shop (1251 Ninth St. NW) offers a rotating selection of prepared foods for breakfast and dinner with Indian, Caribbean, Chinese and Italian fare and American comfort food. BECKY KRYSTAL (THE WASHINGTON POST)

SWEETS SPAGnVOLA chocolate is on a sweet mission. The brand, which recently opened a D.C. outlet at the Shops at 2000 Penn (2000 Pennsylvania Ave. NW), is working with the Ondo state government in Nigeria to build that country’s first premiumchocolate factory. SPAGnVOLA owners Eric and Crisoire Reid will teach farmers there how to produce the bricks chocolatiers use in their work. “We [will] provide the knowledge to produce bricks and then [SPAGnVOLA] will buy their bricks,” says Eric Reid, president and chief executive of the company. Through the project, farmers’ earnings will increase from “less than 50 cents a pound [for beans] to about $8 a pound for chocolate bricks,” he says. Currently, the husband-andwife duo imports about 22 tons of cacao beans annually from their Dominican Republic farm. The beans are hand-sorted at the Reids’ Gaithersburg, Md., factory, which opened in 2009. Their single-estate, organic chocolate bars, bonbons and truffles earned SPAGnVOLA a spot on National Geographic’s list of top 10 chocolate shops in the world. “Chocolate was our calling,” Eric Reid says. He and Crisoire, an award-winning chocolatier and Dominican Republic native, also have a location in National Harbor (181 Waterfront St., Oxon Hill, Md.). They are planning to open a fourth shop in Virginia this year. ASHLEY RODRIGUEZ (THE WASHINGTON POST)

2016: A Second Look Want to relive 2016? HA HA HA HA — no, of course not. But there were some glimmers of light, and a lot of those were found at the movies. The AFI Silver’s program 2016: A Second Look gives you a chance to see some of the year’s best movies — both those that dominated at the box office and those that didn’t get the credit they deserved. It starts with “Captain Fantastic,” above, about a dad (Viggo Mortensen, nominated for an Oscar for the role) raising his large family off the grid. The other don’t-miss (or don’t-missagain) films include “The Fits,” “Swiss Army Man” and “Kubo and the Two Strings.” See, 2016 wasn’t all bad.

However, as always with Playbackthetape, the movies were taped from their original broadcasts, with all the ads intact. Suns

DARK HABITS [ENTRE TINIEBLAS]

The iconoclastic Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar may have made his reputation as an enfant terrible, but his contributions to world cinema — 20 feature films; Oscars®, Golden Globes, Goyas, Donatellos and César awards; a career retrospective at MoMA — now place him in the category of grand master.

Mon, Mar 13, 9:20; Wed, Mar 15, 9:20

Following her lover's fatal drug overdose, bolero singer and drug addict Yolanda (Cristina Sánchez Pascual) seeks refuge in the Convent of Humble Redeemers, an enclosure dedicated to the rescue of wayward women with a past in drugs, prostitution and murder. No redemption is in sight as this haphazardly run convent turns out to house a kitsch collection of vices and sins involving heroin, LSD, a tiger and erotic books. Frequent visits by old lovers and police officers also turn this house of worship into an ultimate farce. (Note courtesy of MoMA.) DIR/SCR Pedro Almodóvar; PROD Luis Calvo. Spain, 1983, color, 114 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED

His early films scandalized and delighted audiences with their hyperbolic scenarios and sardonic comedy — full of risqué sexual behavior, riotous color, profane passions and flamboyant fashions. His later work features more seriousminded melodrama and truly transgressive thrillers, with fullblooded characters, impressively intricate plotting and sincere emotionalism. As Almodóvar continues to grow as an artist, his work takes its rightful place among the greats of world cinema. Following wide acclaim for his latest masterpiece JULIETA, AFI Silver presents a thorough survey of Almodóvar's feature films. All films in the series are in Spanish with English subtitles.

Pedro Almodóvar's first feature explores life in Madrid during Spain's infamous Movida Madrileña, the exuberant post-Franco counter-cultural movement of which Almodóvar himself was a driving force. Highlighting punks, musicians, wild parties, drugs, empowered women and lots of sex, Almodóvar crafts a crazy and daring comedy that epitomizes the barrierbreaking thirst of a taboo-ridden society experiencing the resurgence of democracy and its corresponding freedoms.

A colorful cast of characters lights up this hilarious tale overflowing with cheesy dramatic irony. Cornily named nymphomaniac Sexilia (Cecilia Roth) falls for Riza (Imanol Arias), the gay son of the Emperor of Tiran (a fictional Middle Eastern state). Sexilia's psychoanalyst, Susana, has the hots for Sexilia's father, who unfortunately is a sex-averse gynecologist. Among his patients is Princess Toraya, ex-wife of the Emperor of Tiran, who is dead-set on being impregnated by her stepson Riza. A chain of twisted relationships makes this outlandish film, Pedro Almodóvar's second feature, a continuation of his cathartic release following the oppressive reign of Franco.

Overworked Gloria (Carmen Maura) takes multiple cleaning jobs to make ends meet. Her unforgiving life is inhabited by a cast of eccentric characters: an abusive taxi-driver husband who schemes to forge Hitler's handwriting, a drug-dealing teenage son who is the actual forger, an unappreciative mother-in-law who hides her sweets and a prostitute neighbor who pays Gloria to sit in on sex acts she performs with exhibitionist customers. In this absurd and oppressive environment, what is a woman like Gloria to do — in Almodóvarian fashion? Drugs, murder, sex and selling off a younger son to a pedophile dentist helped make this tragicomedy the auteur's first international success. (Note courtesy of MoMA.)

In one of Pedro Almodóvar's most risqué comedies, a newly released mental patient (Antonio Banderas) stalks and kidnaps the object of his obsession — former porn star Marina (Victoria Abril) — and then holds her captive until she falls in love with him, in a bizarre case study of Stockholm syndrome. Punctuated by a tense Ennio Morricone musical score, the film remains controversial more for its sadomasochistic undertones and the victimization of women than for its graphic nudity and passionate sex scenes.

Diego (Nacho Martínez) is a former star bullfighter forced into early retirement after being gored by a bull.

Enter Ángel (Antonio Banderas), Diego's bullfighting student, who is, ironically, scared of blood. After an unsuccessful rape attempt, Ángel turns himself in to the police and confesses to it, as well as to multiple murders he did not commit.

In Pedro Almodóvar's Oscar®-winning homage to women — and all men who want to become women — single mother Manuela (Cecilia Roth) watches her only son die on his 17th birthday while running to get a stage actress' autograph. As the heart-broken mother embarks on her quest to find the boy's transsexual father, she befriends a richly diverse assortment of women, including the actress her son died pursuing (Marisa Paredes), a transgender prostitute named Lola (Toni Cantó) and a young, pregnant nun (Penélope Cruz). DIR/SCR Pedro Almodóvar; PROD Agustín Almodóvar. Spain, 1999, b&w/color, 101 min. In Spanish and Catalan with English subtitles. RATED R

One day, their dead mother Irene (Carmen Maura) returns as a ghost to resolve issues with Raimunda, who is busy dealing with her husband's death and calming her daughter. Mysteries unfold in this story filled with death, incest, adultery, murder, fear and humor. The ensemble cast of six female actors jointly won the Best Actress award at Cannes, and Cruz became the first Spaniard to be nominated for a Best Actress Oscar®. (Note courtesy of MoMA.)

News of the death of powerful Madrilenian businessman Ernesto Martel (José Luis Gómez) forces Harry Caine (Lluís Homar), a blind man who was once a filmmaker, to confront his tragic past. Lena (Penélope Cruz) was the star of Caine's last feature, GIRLS AND SUITCASES, with a plot similar to Pedro Almodóvar's WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN. Although she was Martel's girlfriend at the time, the director and actress fell in love during filming. The filmwithin-a-film, combining multiple genres, brings together love, obsession, voyeurism and melancholy in a moving meditation on filmmaking and cinema. (Note courtesy of MoMA.)

Plastic surgeon Robert Ledgard (Antonio Banderas) turns his mansion into an underground operating room where he unscrupulously seeks to create a synthetic skin that could have saved his deceased wife, who was badly burned in an accident. Vera (Elena Anaya), with a shocking past to be revealed later, is Ledgard's involuntary specimen and captive human sculpture. The film reunites Pedro Almódovar with Banderas for the first time since TIE ME UP! TIE ME DOWN! (1990), which also dealt with a captor and his captive. THE SKIN I LIVE IN is a psychological thriller and horror story of unmatched cruelty and madness. (Note courtesy of MoMA.)

JULIETA Tue, Apr 25, 7:00; Thu, Apr 27, 7:00

Pedro Almodóvar's 20th feature film weaves three Alice Munro short stories into a Hitchcockian melodrama about mothers and daughters, passion and grief and the hard changes one undergoes in a lifetime. Emma Suárez stars as Julieta, a Madrid art dealer who has been estranged from her adult daughter for 13 years. Shaken by a chance encounter with her daughter's childhood friend (Michelle Jenner), Julieta makes a deep dive into her own long-buried past. She recalls how, as a student in the 1980s, her younger self (played by Adriana Ugarte) met the man she would fall passionately in love with, Xoan (Daniel Grao), on an overnight train journey.

Two men forge a relationship as they use the intricacies of the spoken word — however improbably — to communicate with the comatose women they love. Nurse Benigno Martín (Javier Cámara) talks to felled ballerina Alicia (Leonor Watling), while journalist Marco Zuluaga (Darío Grandinetti) confides in gored bullfighter Lydia González (Rosario Flores). As the stories of all four lives crisscross between past and present, Pedro Almodóvar weaves a touching and highly original tale, for which he won an Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay.

Enrique (Fele Martínez) is a young film director. Actor Ignacio (Gael García Bernal) turns up looking for work and identifies himself as a childhood friend. Enrique doesn't recognize the man, but his reaction to the name Ignacio signals a deeply intertwined past. Ignacio has written a story and asks Enrique to make it into a film — and cast him in the lead. The story is based on their time at Catholic boarding school, where they fell in love but were pulled apart by Father Manolo (Daniel Giménez Cacho). Moving between past and present, BAD EDUCATION is a film noir-melodrama hybrid layered with shadowy pasts and unexpected twists. (Note courtesy of MoMA.)

With the advent of sound, Hollywood quickly prioritized comedians who could talk over the sublime pantomime and sight gags of the silent clowns. Enter a team of brothers who, starting out in their teens under the guidance of their hard-driving mother, had honed a vaudeville act that ran — and talked — circles around any other. The Marx brothers were led by the fast-talking, quick-witted and absurdly entertaining flim-flammer Groucho, and included the Italianate madcap Chico; the childlike Harpo, who famously did not talk; and the handsome straight man Zeppo, who like the fifth brother Gummo, eventually left the act to his more anarchically inclined brothers. The brothers' onscreen antics and wordplay are the stuff of legend, entertaining and inspiring audiences across generations. This retrospective of their finest films presents a rare opportunity to see them back on the big screen.

LITTLE MEN (2016)

Twenty-six-year-old Bi Gan's mesmerizing directorial debut has been compared to the work of master auteurs Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Tsai Ming-liang, Hou Hsiao-hsien, David Lynch and Andrei Tarkovsky. Hinging on the story of Chen (played by the filmmaker's uncle), a country doctor on a quest to find his nephew, the film takes a turn for the mystical when the protagonist happens upon Dang Mai, an enchanted town where past, present and future merge. Shot on a minimal budget in Bi Gan's hometown, this is an instant classic of independent cinema, complete with a virtuosic, nearhallucinatory 40-minute take that demands to be seen on the big screen.

On Thanksgiving, Krisha (Krisha Fairchild, Schults' aunt), a woman with a past of addiction and mental illness, shows up at her sister's home. It's a recipe for trouble, and Schults delivers, turning what could've been a conventional tale of familial reconciliation into part horror, part thriller, part John Cassavetes.

SPARTACUS (1960)

He's Spartacus! And Colonel Dax. And Whit Sterling, Midge Kelly, Chuck Tatum and Jonathan Shields. And Vincent van Gogh and Doc Holliday and Einar the Viking, too. The indomitable Kirk Douglas recently turned 100, and played approximately that many different roles during his seven decades in show business. Renowned for his on-screen intensity, his ability to play both conventional heroes and morally compromised anti-heroes with convincing gusto and, of course, for his trademark cleft chin, Douglas is a paragon of the post-WWII Hollywood leading man. This series presents some of Douglas' most notable films from across his wide-ranging and dynamic career.

A landmark film for young director Stanley Kubrick, it was one of two 1960 films (along with Otto Preminger's EXODUS) to openly hire and credit blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, thus effectively ending the blacklist era.

Warren Beatty's boastful-but-sensitive gambler and Julie Christie's business-minded madam enjoy an overnight success, setting up a bordello together in the frontier town of Presbyterian Church. But their success draws the interest of the local mining company, which, when rebuffed in their effort to buy them out, resorts to strong-arm tactics. Vilmos Zsigmond's gorgeous widescreen photography, Leonard Cohen's moody balladry and director Robert Altman's eye and ear for detail make this revisionist Western classic a must-see on the big screen.

SEVEN DAYS IN MAY Sun, Apr 23, 4:15

Set some time in the near future of the 1970s, liberal U.S. president Jordan Lyman (Fredric March) signs a nuclear disarmament treaty with the Soviet Union, in the wake of a Korean Warlike stalemate in Iran. Amid a loud public outcry of dissatisfaction from the administration's political opposition and rightwingers in the military, Marine Corps Colonel Martin "Jiggs" Casey (Kirk Douglas) uncovers a plot within the Joint Chiefs of Staff, led by charismatic Air Force General James Mattoon Scott (Burt Lancaster), to stage a military coup. The impressive cast includes Ava Gardner, Edmond O'Brien, Martin Balsam, John Houseman and George Macready. DIR John Frankenheimer; SCR Rod Serling, from the novel by Fletcher Knebel and Charles W.

Unique among Westerns, this film takes place in 1816 (most are set closer to the Civil War years) and concerns not a wagon train of homesteaders but a Missouri River keelboat crew making a perilous journey from the frontier town of St. Louis deep into the Montana territory to trade with the Blackfoot Indians. Captain Frenchy (Steven Geray) heads a crew that includes friendly rivals Jim Deakins (Kirk Douglas) and Boone Caudill (Dewey Martin), plus Boone's frontiersman uncle Zeb (Arthur Hunnicutt) and an ace in the hole: Blackfoot princess Teal Eye (Elizabeth Threatt), sprung from enemy captors, whose return the crew hopes will curry favor with her tribe.

Mel Brooks' spoof of the Western was a tremendous hit, establishing the template for his 1970s and '80s genre satires. Coveting land around the frontier town of Rock Ridge, nefarious railroad magnate Hedley Lamarr (Harvey Korman) recruits a gang to terrorize the town and uses his influence to stick Rock Ridge with rookie sheriff Bart (Cleavon Little), the town's first black resident. Despite long odds, the wily new sheriff flips the script with help from newly deputized drunk "The Waco Kid" (Gene Wilder) and Dietrich-esque saloon singer Lili Von Shtupp (Oscar®-nominated Madeline Kahn). "A wed wose. How womantic." DIR/SCR Mel Brooks; SCR Norman Steinberg, Andrew Bergman, Richard Pryor, Alan Uger; PROD Michael Hertzberg. U.S., 1974, color, 93 min. RATED R IN MEMORIAM: Gene Wilder 1933–2016

DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST Opens February 17 – see website for daily showtimes

At the dawn of the 20th century, a multi-generational family in the island Gullah community off of South Carolina — former West African slaves who adopted many of their ancestors' Yoruba traditions — struggles to maintain their cultural heritage while contemplating a migration to the mainland, even further from their roots. The first wide release by a black female filmmaker, AFI Conservatory alumna Julie Dash's DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST was met with critical acclaim when it opened in 1991, and it still resonates today, most recently as a major influence on Beyonce's "Lemonade." Restored (in conjunction with UCLA) for the first time, with color grading overseen by cinematographer Arthur Jafa. DIR/SCR/PROD Julie Dash; PROD Arthur Jafa, Steven Jones.

This is the inspiring story of Jackie Robinson, the man who broke the color barrier in all-white major league baseball when he debuted for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, achieving stardom, opening the doors for others and marking a key victory in the Civil Rights movement. DIR/SCR Brian Helgeland; PROD Thomas Tull. U.S., 2013, color, 128 min. RATED PG-13

Monty Python delivers a scathing, anarchic satire of both religion and Hollywood's depiction of all things biblical in this hilarious epic. The setting is Judea 33 AD, a time of poverty and chaos. At the center of it all is Brian Cohen (Graham Chapman), a reluctant would-be messiah who rises to prominence as the result of a series of absurd circumstances (and a bit of mistaken identity with that better-known prophet). The Pythons, each playing multiple roles, nail the topical humor of the day: ex-lepers, Pontius Pilate, the art of haggling, the Romans ("What have they ever done for us?") and crucifixion.

MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL

In person: the Langley Punks & Travesty Films fellow travelers You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll hurl your beer. AFI Silver pays tribute to the DC area's original homegrown comedy filmmakers the Langley Punks, a cult force throughout the '70s and early '80s. Eventually morphing into the comedy collective Travesty Group, their astonishing output in the days before video cameras included 11 short films, a kinescope tribute to classic comedy television, a collaboration with Sam Raimi and a comedy album featuring "Rock and Roll Doctor," heralded by Dr. Demento as "one of the greatest novelty recordings of all time." This program includes their magnum opus, HYATTSVILLE HOLIDAY. The Washington Post called Travesty Group "hysterical." The New York Times called them "truly funny." But what do they know? See for yourself, if you dare. Program approximately 90 min. NOT RATED

Sing-Along

Spawning a hit musical, plush killer bunnies and a generation of comedy nerds, this irreverent cult classic is the Pythons' unique take on the legend of King Arthur. After recruiting the Knights of the Round Table to join him in Camelot (turns out it's a silly place), Arthur and his coconut-clopping crew set out on a noble quest to find the Holy Grail. Featuring limbless knights, a Trojan rabbit and wisecracking Frenchmen, the troupe's first original feature mixes absurd set pieces with Terry Gilliam's trademark animation, in the only Python film he directed. DIR/SCR Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones; SCR Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin; PROD Mark Forstater, Michael White. UK, 1975, color, 91 min. RATED PG

Jûzô Itami's rapturous "ramen Western" returns to U.S. screens for the first time in decades, in a new 4K restoration. This tale of an enigmatic band of ramen ronin who guide the widow of a noodle shop owner on her quest for the perfect recipe serves up a savory broth of culinary adventure seasoned with offbeat comedy sketches and the erotic exploits of a gastronome gangster. Sweet, sexy, surreal and mouthwatering, TAMPOPO remains one of the most delectable examples of food on film. (Note courtesy of Janus Films.)

This ineffable mix of unbridled joy and vérité realism presents beloved singer/songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Leon Russell as filmed by documentarian Les Blank between 1972 and 1974. Blank's camera lets us into the world of Russell and his friends and fellow artists in and around his recording studio in Oklahoma, capturing intimate, off-the-cuff moments and combining them with mesmerizing scenes of Russell and his band performing live. This singular film about an artist and his community never got an official theatrical release and has attained legendary status. Now, after more than forty years, it can finally be seen and heard in all its rough beauty. (Note courtesy of Janus Films.) DIR/SCR Les Blank; PROD Denny Cordell, Leon Russell.

‘Border Crossing: Jami Porter Lara’ When you look at Jami Porter Lara’s pottery, you should see something familiar but slightly askew. That’s because the artist uses a millennia-old process to create works that resemble a common item: the plastic bottle. On a trip to the U.S.-Mexico border, Porter Lara found pieces of ancient pottery and empty plastic

bottles left by migrants. The juxtaposition of the two inspired her new exhibit, “Border Crossing.”

George Saunders, ‘Lincoln in the Bardo’ Though he’s long been one of the country’s most acclaimed


THURSDAY | 02.16.2017 | EXPRESS | 27

top stops short-story writers, George Saunders is just now getting around to writing his first novel at 58. “Lincoln in the Bardo,” released this week, takes place in the Georgetown cemetery, where President Abraham Lincoln has just buried his 11-year-old son. Then, things get weird (and funny) as a chorus of spirits debate class and race and advise Lincoln.

Written by Express and The Washington Post.

‘Daughters of the Dust’ AFI Silver, 8633 Colesville Road, Silver Spring; opens Friday, $8-$13.

Twenty-five years after its release, filmmaker Julie Dash’s “Daughters of the Dust” returns to theaters. Set in 1902, the iconic film explores the Great Migration through the lives of a family living in a Gullah community on the Sea Islands off the coasts of South Carolina and Georgia. Dash was the first African-American woman to direct and produce a full-length feature film, and last year the movie saw a resurgence of recognition with the release of Beyonce’s visual album “Lemonade,” which channels elements of the film.

CAMERON CARPENTER and the International Touring Organ Fri, Mar 3, 8pm Strathmore “Extravagantly talented… fantastical and memorable” —New York Times

Hammerstein & Kern’s classic hit, featuring show stopping songs like ‘Old Man River’ and ‘Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man’. Two teens derail a train and cause a media frenzy. A witty and humorous look at truth and reality. A masterpiece of modern Mexican theatre. You’ve never seen a family pray quite like this. Enter the eye of the storm with them, and bear witness to a surreal, harrowing tale of survival and forgiveness.

Toby’s Dinner Theatre of Columbia 410.730.8311 Tobysdinnertheatre.com GALA Theatre 3333 14th Street, NW 202-234-7174 www.galatheatre.org Woolly Mammoth Theatre Co. 641 D Street NW 202-393-3939, woollymammoth.net

Master dramatist Tom Stoppard’s newest play is bristling with intellectual energy and searing wit, The Hard Problem explores the complexities of consciousness, the nature of belief, and how to reconcile hard science with lived experience. “Breathtakingly on-point new comedy” (Washington Post). Timely world premiere about growing up black in America. “5 STARS” (DC Theatre Scene) Samantha and Leo are a team—best friends &roommates, fat girl and gay guy against the world—until a new friend upends their cozy co-dependent diet of mutual self-loathing and TV marathons. An ode to the complications of friendship in its many messy forms, and nod to love that sometimes looks a lot like rage. A grownup prequel to Peter Pan. Magical and hilarious with daring movement and mermaids. Visit ConstellationTheatre.org This wildly popular interactive comedy whodunit keeps the audiences laughing as they try to outwit the suspects and catch the killer. New clues and up to the minute improvisation deliver “shrieks of laughter night after night.” (Washington Post)

Love in the time of politics Director Amma Asante kept things complicated in ‘A United Kingdom’

Oscar-nominated actress Queen Latifah is set to receive the Entertainment Icon award at this year’s American Black Film Festival Honors, taking place in Los Angeles on Friday. The actress said she is honored to receive the award: “It means so much to me coming from fellow entertainers and my peers.” The ABFF Honors will air Wednesday at 8 p.m. on BET and Centric. (AP) BOOKS

Krysten Ritter to release her first novel this year For Ruth and Seretse (Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo), love doesn’t come easy.

At the time, Britain was struggling to rebuild its economy after WWII, its former empire was rapidly shrinking and there was immense pressure put on the government by Bechuanaland’s neighbor and British ally South Africa, which was just beginning its apartheid system (so they were quite unhappy with a black African man marrying a white British woman). “If you don’t understand what [Seretse and Ruth] were up against,” Asante says, “you won’t understand the strength of their love.”

FOX SEARCHLIGHT

FILM “The story of a black man who falls in love with a white woman, on its own, isn’t massively interesting,” Amma Asante says. Which may not be the way to sell “A United Kingdom,” the director’s new film, which opens Friday. And yet the trailers make it look like the story of a black man who falls in love with a white woman. The movie goes far deeper. Based on the lives of Seretse Khama and Ruth Williams (David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike), “A United Kingdom” is as much a political drama as it is a love story. Seretse, the heir to the throne of Bechuanaland (the country of Botswana today), meets and marries Ruth, a white woman living in postwar Britain. While they face obstacles typical for the time — most notably family and cultural opposition from both sides — Seretse’s role on the world stage means their marriage has effects that ring much louder than awkwardness at Christmas dinner. “By the time I came to the story, there was a wisdom amongst the team that this had to be completely a love story, that the politics made it too heavy,” says the London-born Asante (“Belle”). “My argument was we’ve got to go for this from the get-go as a story that’s a combination of love and politics.”

AWARDS

The ABFF Honors to award Queen Latifah

What that means, rather ironically, is that “A United Kingdom” is the rare romance where Asante the two le ads spend most of the movie apart. After the two are married and move to Bechuanaland, then a British protectorate, they are politically outmaneuvered, resulting in Seretse essentially living in exile in Britain for years while Ruth remains in Bechuanaland. Those were the years of Seretse and Ruth’s story that Asante

found most interesting. “This [had to] be a movie about what happens once they fall in love — that’s the fascinating aspect of the story.” Still, it’s not all diplomacy and mining rights and political maneuvering. “I’m an old-fashioned romantic,” Asante says. “So seeing [the scene with] her holding the baby while he’s speaking about a new future for his country is always very emotional to me. Look at all of what this couple had to stand up against, and that baby is the best evidence of their love. That child exists as their legacy.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

verbatim

“I don’t think there’s a race problem at all.” NEIL PORTNOW, president of the Recording Academy, telling Pitchfork the Grammys do not have a racial bias because

the awards are not a “corporate entity,” but are “peer-voted” by 14,000 academy members. He added, “They have to qualify in order to be members … so they are sort of the experts and the highest level of professionals in the industry.”

Provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos to appear on Friday’s “Real Time With Bill Maher”

Crown Archetype announced Wednesday that it had acquired actress-producer Krysten Ritter’s “Bonfire,” a psychological thriller about an environmental lawyer and a company accused of dumping toxic chemicals. The book is scheduled for publication on Nov. 7. Ritter said in a statement that she welcomed the chance to “explore a character journey” and likened the writing process to studying an acting part. (AP) TELEVISION

‘Saturday Night Live’ is on a ratings streak “Saturday Night Live” reached its largest audience since 2011 with 10.8 million viewers during last weekend’s episode. Hosted by President Trump impersonator Alec Baldwin, the episode also featured the return of Melissa McCarthy’s portrayal of White House press secretary Sean Spicer. To put viewership into perspective, “SNL” had a bigger audience than all but four prime-time programs on TV last week. Among younger viewers, only the Grammys had better ratings. (AP)

about “the real scandal” after President Trump tweeted, “The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by ‘intelligence’ like candy,” after the administration fired Michael Flynn. “Has anyone ever succeeded in distracting people from a scandal by saying ‘the REAL scandal here is ...?’ “ @bfod tweeted about Trump’s line.

@JESSICAKROY tweeting sarcastically about the three different Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers — all of which feature model Kate Upton. This swimsuit edition is supposedly focused on body diversity and age inclusion. It is Upton’s third time appearing on the cover, and the cover was released after rumors that the model had demanded cover treatment. Last year, Sports Illustrated also had three different covers, but they featured models Ashley Graham and Hailey Clauson and MMA fighter Ronda Rousey.

Apple released a trailer for its forthcoming show, “Planet of the Apps.” Twitter user @Panoras1 aptly described it as “‘The Voice’ show, but instead of music players they have developers.” It was widely derided on social media.

“This is a happy ending, hopefully he doesn’t fall into any more issues and just keeps going. I’m proud of ... anybody who finds success out of a dark time.” EJ NASH, a commenter on buzzfeed .com, writing about “Felon Bae” (real name Jeremy Meeks) walking in New York Fashion Week. Meeks’ attractive mug shot photos went viral in 2014, and he landed a modeling contract after serving 27 months in prison.

An adult needs to take away Harrison’s toys

The universe is ganging up on Alanis Alanis Morissette’s home in Los Angeles’ upscale Brentwood neighborhood was burglarized last week, TMZ reported, and the thieves got away with $2 million in jewelry. It’s not clear if they took anything else. The singer was not at home at the time. This report comes weeks after Morissette’s manager admitted to stealing nearly $5 million from the singer between 2010 and 2014. (EXPRESS)

Harrison Ford had a potentially serious run-in with an airliner, NBC-TV reported. Ford, 74, was told to land his single-engine plane on a runway at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, Calif., on Monday, but he mistakenly landed it on a parallel taxiway, passing over an American Airlines jet holding nearby. “Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?” Ford is heard asking air traffic controllers in a recording. The Federal Aviation Administration said it is investigating. This incident comes after Ford was injured in 2015 when his World War II-era trainer crashed on a Los Angeles golf course. In 1999, Ford crash-landed his helicopter during a training flight. (AP)

Mike Comrie is being investigated for rape

‘Sincerely, Karlie, aka her very upset publicist’

The Los Angeles Police Department told People that it is investigating Mike Comrie, former NHL player and ex-husband of Hilary Duff, for allegedly raping a woman. Sources told TMZ that the woman, who was not named, met Comrie on Saturday at a bar and went with him to his home, where he raped her multiple times, she said. He reportedly claims they had consensual sex. (EXPRESS)

Karlie Kloss has apologized after she was criticized for appearing in Vogue in a Japanese-themed photo shoot that portrayed Kloss dressed in traditional geisha garb. “These images appropriate a culture that is not my own and I am truly sorry for participating in a shoot that was not culturally sensitive,” she tweeted. “My goal is, and always will be, to empower and inspire women. I will ensure my future shoots and projects reflect that mission.” (EXPRESS)
