WHEN HE WAS 13, it was a very good year for Mickey Light. He discovered "Frankie" Sinatra, the cocky young crooner with girls swooning at his feet and a trip-wire temper. For a poor Baltimore kid like Light, watching Sinatra's meteoric ascent as an American icon in the 1940s made him feel as if guys like him could be somebody."When I was a kid, I lived in a poor neighborhood by the Maryland Penitentiary," Light says. "We went to see a movie with Sinatra [it was the "The Kissing Bandit"]. He was a young skinny guy just like we were.

The photos of author Robert Timberg in recent years aren't as horrifying as his memoir leads readers to expect. His eyes are direct and unflinching, and his mouth expresses wry amusement. He has the kind of wrinkles normally found on a 74-year-old man and a patch of skin across his nose that at a casual glance appears sunburned. There's nothing about Timberg's appearance now that could be described as freakish, nothing that would cause young children to howl in fright. It's taken Timberg more than 35 operations - including one without anesthesia - and 47 years to achieve that face, and he's still not entirely reconciled to it. There are moments even now when he looks in the mirror and is first startled, then furious.

Michael Felgate has a problem. The soft-spoken manager of a classy New York auction house is in love with a gorgeous schoolteacher, who happens to be the daughter of a mid-level mob boss.But Michael's problem isn't the mob. Michael's problem is that he's in a movie that's been done before -- and much more effectively -- in "Analyze This." Like that earlier comedy, "Mickey Blue Eyes" is a fish-out-of-water comedy that gets most of its laughs by caricaturing the Mafia dramas of Scorsese and Coppola.

If one image from the night stands out, it's of this tall man with a full head of gray hair in a gray sports jacket and black shirt who just said that he was turning 80 next spring standing up at the table where three other men sat in this Italian place in Locust Point. Frankly it was a little odd and a little uneasy to be sitting there listening to him stand and sing "You Make Me Feel So Young," not just because he did the entire song, not just because he sang it a cappella, but because his full heart was in it, and he seemed blissfully adrift in a distant place of his own life.

I've always been fascinated by eye color, especially as it changes after a baby is born. As happens with most caucasian babies, both my sons were born with blue eyes, but I haven't expected it to last -- my eyes are blue, but my husband's are brown. My 5-month-old's eyes are still quite blue, albeit with a few streaks around the middle of the iris. I was trying to remember when his big brother's eyes changed, so I went through some old pictures the other night, and at 5 months, his eyes were already very greenish-brown.

'Field of Dreams' 5:30 p.m. [AMC] Sure, historical inaccuracies abound in this Kevin Costner movie about a man who turns a cornfield into a baseball field to reconnect with his father. But who cares that the young Doc Graham has dark brown eyes and the old one has blue eyes if you end up wiping your own in the end?

He will not dance again,or sing.He cannot talk or walk,Or even stand.He cannot read or write,the blue eyes a vacant stare,As from the flickeringTelevision screen.He looks uncomprehendingat ''The Price Is Right.''His world has shrunkTo a half-filled water glass,A box of Kleenex by his bed,Bewilderment.And yet he understandsA kiss, and knowsThat in the kingdomof my heart,He wears the crown.Pub Date: 6/06/96

Wherever Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is right now, he may well be shedding a tear.Farrakhan, like most of us, has probably spent the past few days mourning the passing of Ol' Blue Eyes - Frank Sinatra. The Italian-American crooner was the favorite singer of the African-American firebrand whose incendiary rhetoric has been labeled anti-white and anti-Semitic. Only in America.Farrakhan was a singer himself in his pre-Nation of Islam days. His admiration for Sinatra proves that Ol' Blue Eyes was the best at his craft, a singer's singer.

Infinity Theatre Company is offering a two-show summer season at Children's Theatre of Annapolis on Bay Head Road. The opening production, "My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra," runs weekends through July 10 and features a cast of four singers — a younger couple and an older pair who first previewed this show in March at a Manhattan benefit. Sinatra's last concert was three years before his death on May 14, 1998, meaning that anyone under 21 would hardly know this performer, often called the top entertainer of the 20th century.

"Behind Blue Eyes: The Life of Pete Townshend," by Geoffrey Giuliano. Dutton. 352 pages. $24.95. One thing people love about celebrity journalism is the chance to hear an artist "speak" through interviews that stress long, unedited quotes. Unlike conventional profiles, where the writer acts as a sort of filter between the subject and the reader, these quote-driven pieces simply take down what the star has to say and offer it up without comment.That may make for magazine copy, but it's hell on biographies.

Blue eyes are typically associated with beauty, or perhaps Frank Sinatra. But to University of Wisconsin anthropologist John Hawks, they represent an evolutionary mystery. For nearly all of human history, everyone in the world had brown eyes. Then, between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, the first blue-eyed baby was born somewhere near the Black Sea. For some reason, that baby's descendants gained a 5 percent evolutionary advantage over their brown-eyed competitors, and today the number of people with blue eyes tops half a billion.

Eric Hutchinson's real big break came after he thought he had already gotten it. About three years ago, the pop singer-songwriter-musician was signed to Maverick Records, the Warner Bros.-distributed label partly founded by Madonna, whose roster included the likes of Alanis Morrissette and Michelle Branch. But just as Hutchinson was about to begin work on his major-label debut, Maverick shut down. The Takoma Park native was back where he started - making music on his own. It took nearly two years to receive a buyout from the company.
