MIAMI -- When Audrey Hepburn woke up Sunday, groggy from anesthesia after undergoing surgery in Los Angeles, her thoughts were in Miami, according to a close friend.If not for the sudden discovery of a cancerous tumor on her colon, Ms. Hepburn would have been in Miami this weekend. She was to be inducted into the Miami Children's Hospital's International Pediatrics Hall of Fame, which honors physicians and others for their contributions to the health and happiness of children."When she came out of the anesthesia, she said, 'How long do I have?

When Billy Wilder's comedies clicked, whole groups of stars could settle into unexpectedly risible constellations - as they did in his most purely entertaining movie, the gangbusters Roaring Twenties farce, "Some Like It Hot." Wilder had worked with Monroe before 1959, but in "Some Like It Hot," he took her dizzy-blonde persona and ran with it. When Monroe's Sugar Kane, a ukulele-strumming singer in an all-girl band, isn't cooing or tippling, she's falling for male tenor-sax players.

Wearing a work uniform often seems to me like it would be a great gift. At the very least it would eliminate 20 or 30 minutes of closet-scouring every morning. And at best, it would save you money to buy the clothes you really want to wear in the rest of your life. It's especially cool to see how Emily Vollherbst - who is required to wear all black at her job as a cashier at Eddie's grocery in Charles Village - jazzes up the dress code. Even in a uniform, her personal style shows through, and you know exactly who she is. Age: 20 Residence: Bolton Hill School: General Fine Arts major at Maryland Institute College of Art. Self-described style: "I've always been inspired by a mixture of Katharine Hepburn and Audrey Hepburn.

What? It's New Year's Day, and you say you're not going to watch football? What sort of American are you? C'mon, let's see some citizenship papers. OK, if you insist on continuing with this madness, there are a few things on TV today that don't take place within the confines of a 300-foot-long field. But not many.* "Tournament of Roses Parade" (11 a.m.-12:30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11; 11 a.m.-1 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2; 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- If you want to watch anything other than this parade this afternoon, good luck.

Two vastly different, but equally venerable, racing traditions are the highlights of today's sports television -- the 121-year-old Kentucky Derby and the 144-year-old America's Cup Series.

A Saturday afternoon outside or Audrey Hepburn on the tube? Decisions, decisions"My Fair Lady" (Noon-3 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Even if the weather's nice, this is one of the few films that could convince you to spend a Saturday afternoon indoors. The songs are wonderful, Audrey Hepburn quite loverly and Stanley Holloway steals the spotlight whenever he shows up on-screen -- as Eliza's dad, he may well be the best part of the movie. A real winner. ABC"Baywatch" (6 p.m.-7 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54)

For Chris Davison, art isn't limited to what you might see on the walls of Maryland Art Place, where she is a board member. Art is also what she wears. "I was a buyer for Macy's forever ago. I worked in the garment industry in New York for years. ... I look at fashion as an art form." Davison's fashion background was evident when we "Glimpsed" the 43-year-old Owings Mills resident at MAP's Vanity Affair gala. The look: Champagne silk Prada dress. Black footless tights. Black patent leather peep-toe Gucci platforms.

NEW YORK - As Albert Finney sees it, there's a fundamental difference between him, a robust bull barreling into a Gotham hotel suite, and the tall-tale spinner he plays in Tim Burton's new film Big Fish. "I live stories rather than tell them," exclaims Finney, a lusty 67, the best-known British actor never to win an Oscar. He's likely to snag yet another nomination for his salty turn as the fantasist father of a realist son in Burton's fractured fairy tale, which goes into wide release Friday.

SUN SCORE ***1/2 The Truth About Charlie updates the classic Audrey Hepburn-Cary Grant caper Charade, about a beautiful widow in Paris stalked for a fortune she never knew about, with the freedom and euphoria of a moviemaking team on a creative spree. With incandescent Thandie Newton as the heroine, stalwart Mark Wahlberg as the enigmatic American who comes to her aid, and slippery Tim Robbins as an officious helpmate from the American Embassy, director Jonathan Demme treats the premise as a great big snowball that he can roll merrily down a fresh new slope.

I thought that having to watch 97 hours of local television covering the hostage standoff in Dundalk was bad. Then I found out what bad was: sitting through three hours of Jennifer Love Hewitt trying to be Audrey Hepburn. OK, maybe I'm overstating the case a little. I admit I hate Hewitt as a television actress. Her one-note waif-ingenue act leaves me cold. I also admit to having made a big mistake in preparing for ABC's "The Audrey Hepburn Story," which airs tonight. I went out and rented a real Hepburn movie, "Love in the Afternoon," so I could make a more informed comparison and not one distorted by the haze of pleasant memory.

What, no Lassie?The American Film Institute's list of the Top 50 "screen legends" of all time -- 25 men, 25 women -- was released with considerable hoopla on CBS last night, with 50 of today's stars paying tribute to their predecessors. And apart from the omission of America's favorite collie, just about all the big names made the cut.Among the men, there's Humphrey Bogart atop the list (putting the AFI in tune with Entertainment Weekly, which named him the top movie star of all time), followed by Cary Grant, James Stewart, Marlon Brando and Fred Astaire.

There are plenty of Europeans to take up the slack.There is excitement in the salons as hemlines continue to rise to improbable heights.
