The modest yet redeeming triumph of Ghost World - director Terry Zwigoff's fiction-film debut and his first work since his soul-quaking 1995 documentary Crumb - is the offhand way it brings to the screen a streak of American dark humor that is dour, resilient and unexpectedly infectious. It's the humor not of American down-and-outers, but of various kinds of American drop-outs - the instinctive skeptic, the doubting Thomas or Thomasina, and most of all the authenticity freak who can't stand commercialism as a value or sanitized comfort as the measure of a good existence.

WASHINGTON - Chances are, you've never heard of culturally essential Americans such as Enid Bissett, Orla Watson and Earl C. Tupper. Their genius will be on display in a new traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibition of sketches, patent illustrations and factory drawings for products that shaped the nation in profound but humble ways. Take Charles Brannock of Syracuse, N.Y., the inventor of the Brannock Device. You know it as the shoe-store gizmo that measures foot length and width.
