Her entire Hollywood career spanned less than a decade, from a memorable (and unbilled) walk-on in a 1928 Laurel and Hardy silent film to her death in 1937 when she was just 26, and yet Jean Harlow remains one of the movies' most recognizable icons. Drive down the refurbished Hollywood Boulevard, and her visage gazes down on you from the side wall of the Chinese Theater. Search for her name on eBay, and you'll get about 200 hits - including still photos that sell for upward of $300. When the American Film Institute released its list of 25 screen goddesses, she came in at No. 22 - and many complained she had been severely shortchanged.

According to the almanac, Dec. 21 was the winter solstice - the shortest day of the year - but for Gwen Stefani it was a long, melancholy slog spent in an anonymous arena in Sunrise, Fla., a bland suburb of Fort Lauderdale. On the closing night of her first solo tour, which she describes as an uneven affair, Stefani found herself short of breath by the third song and staring out at a surprisingly listless crowd. She exhorted the fans at the Bank Atlantic Center to make some noise, and the crowd of mostly daughters and mothers stirred a bit. Then she tried it again with a different approach: "I want you to do this so loud the baby hears you!"

Perhaps more than any other hobby, autograph collecting can be a difficult, if not downright intimidating, field for the beginner. dTC Forgeries abound, and the variety of autographs to be collected seems almost endless -- a lot of famous people over the years have signed their names.Some basic rules: the cheapest autograph is just that, a plain autograph on a piece of paper, maybe cut off a letter or other document. Checks and letters are more desirable -- letters especially, depending on their content (a letter from Judy Garland asking that someone pick up her laundry would not be nearly as valuable as one in which she discussed whether she truly enjoyed playing Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz)

LOS ANGELES -- Few pop hit makers are hotter these days than Linda Perry, songwriter and producer to the stars, or Pharrell Williams, of N.E.R.D. and the Neptunes. A musician -- especially one making a debut of sorts -- would have to be nuts, or stupid, to turn down contributions either might offer. Yet as Gwen Stefani put together her first album apart from No Doubt, the alternative-rock band she has fronted for 17 years, she had a vision of the record she had long wanted to make, and wasn't about to budge.

Movie fans will have to look no further than TCM all weekend, as the folks at Turner salute the late Jimmy Stewart with a 48-hour, 23-film salute to one of Hollywood's best, running from 6 a.m. today until 6 a.m. Monday.Since the films are airing chronologically (beginning with 1936's "Rose Marie"), the best stuff isn't necessarily reserved for prime time; in fact, some of Stewart's most memorable films will air in the wee hours of the morning. But arguably the best of the bunch, 1950's "Harvey," comes on when the whole family can enjoy it: 4 p.m. tomorrow.
