You learn the most surprising things from obituaries sometimes, and when I read the one about Roald Dahl, the celebrated children's author who died Friday at the age of 74, my mouth dropped open.Who would believe this man -- whose books describe so scathingly the warts and foibles and inexplicable cruelty of adults -- also had written the screenplay for the cheerful, optimistic, downright uplifting movie "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?"The Roald Dahl I knew didn't have Dick Van Dyke in his vocabulary.

Baltimore children's book author Elisabeth Dahl used to walk two or three miles just so she could hang out at the Library of Congress, reveling in the Paris Opera House style-architecture, the 23-karat gold-plated dome and the breathtakingly extensive archives that includes the personal papers of Thomas Jefferson. Dahl married a librarian who works now at Towson University, and the couple celebrated their wedding in the Enoch Pratt Free Library . So 45-year-old writer couldn't be more thrilled that her first published book, a children's novel called "Genie Wishes," was chosen to represent the State of Maryland at the 14 t h annual Library of Congress National Book Festival on Saturday.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- In a sweeping attack on Pentagon efforts to ban gays and lesbians from the military, a federal judge in Sacramento has ruled that the controversial policy is unconstitutional because it is based on illegal prejudice.U.S. District Judge Milton L. Schwartz yesterday also ordered the Navy to reinstate Mel Dahl, an ex-sailor who sued after he was discharged in 1982 because he is gay."No governmental entity, even the military, can enact and enforce prejudicial policies without doing violence" to constitutional guarantees of equal protection of the laws, Judge Schwartz wrote in his opinion.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Last week, as the tug pulling the retired Navy aircraft carrier Saratoga plodded up the Atlantic coast toward Newport, R.I., James R. Dahl slowly made his way through 35 years of memory, to the dotted line where he signed his name and the heaving deck where he did his job."I was 17 years old when I went on that ship, and it amazed me. It amazed me," said Dahl, now 51, a former machinist's mate on the Saratoga."I signed up on my birthday, and I lived there for three years.

THE VOICE OF LAURA Ingalls Wilder continues to sweep across America like the prairie wind she wrote about, though she's been dead for 41 years."We're in the third generation of Wilder's books," says Ann Weller Dahl, in her 27th year as a teacher at Baltimore's Calvert School, "and as far as I'm concerned there'll be a fourth and a fifth. Wilder combines reading skills, history and values that are being ignored in much of education."Other authors and other series from the past remain popular among young people, but you won't find Nancy Drew or the Hardy Boys in the Calvert School curriculum.

You're a big-time movie director. You were a fellow in directing at the American Film Institute, and directed 36 music videos, the cult film "Kill Me Again" and the brilliantly received "Red Rock West." Now you've got one of the most ecstatically reviewed movies of the decade in "The Last Seduction." Life should be great, no? What's to worry about? Everything is easy!Well, no."Basically, it's a fistfight from Day One," says John Dahl wearily. "You just fight and manipulate and . . . sometimes you win a little and sometimes you lose a little."

"The Last Seduction," which opens today at the Rotunda, certainly bears out the Biblical injunction that the last shall be first: It's the first good movie of the year. It may be the first good movie of last year. It's an archly ironic film noir that whirls along like a dervish on shore leave, teasing its own conventions exactly as it fulfills them.It's of the noir subset No. 7A -- the femme fatale -- built around a beautiful, predatory woman who has no moral compass, deploys her body as a lethal weapon, and uses the weaker sex as one might use tissue: to soak up fluids and to dispose of. Linda Fiorentino, briefly big years ago after "Vision Quest," is big all over again as sultry, leggy Bridget Gregory, a New Yorker married to a weak-willed physician (Bill Pullman)
