HOLLYWOOD - "It's big news," Tom Hanks is proclaiming in jest. "This is massive!" Kidding aside, the decade-old movie to which Hanks refers is the Oscar-winning Apollo 13, just out in a special two-disc anniversary edition DVD (Universal, $23). The discs feature the original widescreen and Imax versions of the box-office hit about the near-fatal 1970 space mission, commentary with director Ron Howard and Apollo 13 commander Jim Lovell and his wife, Marilyn, and three documentaries. "There is an awful lot of stuff on the DVD, both the movie and the history" of the space missions, he says.

For Henry Dashiell "Hank" Burroughs Jr., a veteran White House Associated Press photographer, accompanying President John F. Kennedy to Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, was going to be another routine assignment. The whirlwind Texas trip was to end in Hyannis Port, Mass., where Kennedy would spend Thanksgiving. The presidential party landed at Dallas Airport at 12:37 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, on a warm, sun-splashed afternoon. As Kennedy departed Air Force One, he walked across the airport tarmac to well-wishers behind a chain link fence.

Playing Viktor Navorski, the hero of Steven Spielberg's new comedy-drama The Terminal, Tom Hanks pays homage to heart-tugging, acrobatic silent clowns like Charlie Chaplin and to absurdist, dough-bodied farceurs like Peter Sellers. Whenever the script gives him a chance, Hanks balances sentiment and slapstick as a traveler from the fictional Eastern European country of Krakhozia who gets stuck at New York's JFK airport indefinitely because rebels have toppled his home government and the United States hasn't recognized the new regime.

It is probably a law of television physics: If you soar as high as producer David E. Kelley did a few seasons ago with Ally McBeal, The Practice and Chicago Hope all doing well in the ratings at the same time, you are going to have one big crash when you return to Planet Earth. Last fall, Kelley's crash came in the form of a Fox series about three female attorneys in their 20s called The Girls' Club. The trio did more shopping and whining than law, and the series was mercifully one of the first to be canceled.
