"The Hustons: Hollywood's Maverick Dynasty" is a loving look at a dysfunctional family that's been responsible for some of Hollywood's finest works.What's most interesting about the show, a two-hour "Biography" special airing at 8 p.m. Sunday on A&E, is that each Huston spent almost as much time shunning Hollywood as embracing and being embraced by it.Patriarch Walter had achieved some success on the Broadway stage and was initially hesitant to make motion pictures, even after talkies made it possible for stage actors with well-trained voices to practically write their own ticket.

PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN HAS always had something extra behind the eyeballs: a glint of high or lowdown wit, a surfeit of mischief or creative energy. A prize supporting actor for more than a decade, he's played everything from a droll oversize preppie with an annoying sense of truth, in The Talented Mr. Ripley, to a sleazy tabloid reporter who gets a flaming sendoff from a serial killer, in the Hannibal Lecter thriller, Red Dragon. In three dozen films, playing big men who move with misguided confidence or sometimes genuine grace, Hoffman had become an heir to the great Hollywood character actors -- the kind that audiences loved seeing even if they couldn't instantaneously recall the performers' names.

Bruno Richard Hauptmann could hardly have foreseen how prophetic his close-to-final words would become when he uttered them on the night of April 3, 1936, shortly before being escorted to the electric chair in the New Jersey State Prison at Trenton.Hauptmann, in the oddly syntaxed and sometimes poetic way he had of speaking, told his minister, "They think when I die, the case will die. They think it will be like a book I closed. But the book, it will never close."More than a half century later, the book in the Lindbergh kidnapping case remains open.

A posse full of soon-to-be-big-name movie stars comes out with guns a-blazing in John Sturges' 1960 The Magnificent Seven, airing at noon today on AMC. This tale of seven gunslingers (actually, six gun- and one knife-slinger) hired to protect a poor Mexican town from a band of nasty desperadoes is a classic for so many reasons: Elmer Bernstein's soaring score, Charles Lang's sparse cinematography, and a cast of then-unknowns, including Robert Vaughn, Charles Bronson and James Coburn (who plays Britt, the guy with the knife)
