During one of the satirical cocktail conversations in Alfred Hitchcock's "Rope" (1948), two women debate the virtues of James Mason ("so attractively sinister!") and Cary Grant. So it was perhaps a fulfillment of a directorial dream when, 50 years ago, Hitchcock pitted these two stars against each other in his most glorious adventure fantasy, "North by Northwest." "North by Northwest" reminds you of how magical and emotionally satisfying movie escapism can be, especially in the current era of "Transformers."

IT'S BEEN a great 40 years. If I had to do it all over again, I'd do it exactly as I have.Being movie and stage critic for The Evening Sun for 28 of those years (for more than 14 of those same years, I also did television criticism) has been a career dream come true.No regrets. No sad songs. I was a star worshiper and remain one. It has been my privilege to interview some of the biggies during all those years, among them Joan Crawford, Katharine Hepburn, Ginger Rogers, Meryl Streep, William Holden, Sylvester Stallone, Gregory Peck, Robert Taylor, Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida, Paul Newman and James Mason (who said my face should be on a stamp, whatever that means)

With its bracing green-mountain locations, there's no great romantic farce better suited to the open air than 1987's Roxanne, which unspools at 8:30 tonight at the Abell Open Space (300 block of E. 32nd St. in Charles Village). With Daryl Hannah in the title role, this inspired update of Cyrano de Bergerac, written by its star, Steve Martin, and directed by Fred Schepisi, leaves the same kind of amorous afterglow that Splash did. And it has a breezy literacy all its own. The filmmakers stick closely to the story of a gallant man with a harlequin's nose.

William Mason, Baltimore's latest reigning film star, is a lively 143-year-old that has eight wheels and tips the scales at 105,000 pounds. When the William Mason (no relation to James Mason), gets steamed up about something, it's usually at 76 pounds per square inch.And one more thing: the William Mason is really a she: a classic American-Type locomotive that measures 48 feet from the tip of her cow catcher to the coupler on her tender. She's just returned to Baltimore from a yearlong adventure that, along the way, included a $125,000 rebuild at Pennsylvania's Strasburg Railroad shops.

As a Marylander, I am embarrassed by the phonies Martin O'Malley and Robert Ehrlich and their negative campaigns. Both have nothing positive to run on and can only try to convince us that the other is a liar and a fraud. In truth, both are liars! Neither is worthy of being elected as any kind of representative of Maryland. James Mason
