Myth-charged, elemental images bring Tristan & Isolde within hailing distance of real magic. Bereft knights send their moribund champion, Tristan (James Franco), across the sea amid bouquets of flaming arrows. A tremulous bride, Isolde (Sophia Myles), stands grimly upright in a boat as she glides on a river to a politically motivated marriage. Unfortunately, in the end, all you get are magic's distant echoes. Parts of this ultimate doomed-love story have an enjoyable sweep and thrust.

CORNWALL, Ontario -- The Baltimore Bandits found a team they could identify with when they came to Canada last night to play the Cornwall Aces, who, like the Bandits had one victory.But the Bandits remained the team with one win, losing for the sixth time in eight games this season, 6-3, before 2,467 at Cornwall Civic Complex.These teams have similar records and the same problem: scoring goals. Last night though, Baltimore's biggest problem was penalties. They were assessed 52 of 92 penalty minutes, and Cornwall took advantage with four power-play goals.

Jack Davis, 108, long recognized as Britain's oldest World War I veteran, died Sunday in a nursing home in Stoke Hammond, Buckinghamshire, England. Mr. Davis lived to mourn almost all of the 5 million Britons who fought with him in the war. "They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old; age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them," his voice boomed out in a typical Flanders Fields observance in Belgium last year.
