EVERY ONCE in a while, you come across something in the newspaper so profoundly disturbing that you just want to go back to bed and pull the covers over your head.This happened to me the other morning.The sun was shining and the birds were chirping and I was on the back deck, enjoying my fourth cup of coffee and vibrating like a cheap motel bed, which is how you need to be in order to read the paper sometimes.And there it was, a short item on Page 2 of this very section.This is what it said: A fourth "Godfather" movie was in the works.

They have so much in common, these three long-dead holy women, their corpses dripping with jewels, that it's as though they've been calling back and forth to one another from across the centuries. Now that their images are in the same room at the American Visionary Art Museum , the murmur of their voices is almost audible. There's St. Kateri, holding a bouquet of her talisman - lilies - and reciting the Lord's Prayer in the Mohawk language. Embedded in the icon is a vial of water taken from the spring where Kateri lived in the 17th century.

He dissected 30 bodies, kept about 20,000 pages of notes and seldom finished what he started. But nearly 500 years after his death, Leonardo da Vinci can still draw a crowd - not only as an artist, but as a scientist. Tonight, a sellout crowd of more than 400 will gather at the Walters Art Museum to hear Kennedy Krieger Institute researcher Jonathan Pevsner discuss da Vinci's genius, focusing on the Renaissance master's study of the human brain. Scholars have spent careers deciphering da Vinci's sketches of flying ships, his catapults and the prescient knowledge of his celestial observations.

Clint Eastwood's latest film, "J. Edgar," due out Nov. 9, is a biopic on FBI director J. Edgar Hoover (played by Leonardo DiCaprio). Here's what the film's trailer revealed. 1. Leonardo DiCaprio loves him some accents: He's done Boston ("The Departed") and whatever he was trying to do in "Blood Diamond," but DiCaprio's Hoover-speak is a little vague here. Is it N.Y.? Generic East Coast? Simply gravelly? We're a little confused (for the record: Hoover was born in D.C.)

Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa is one of the most famous paintings in the history of art and a jewel of the collection at the Louvre Museum in Paris. So what's it doing in Baltimore? That's the question visitors to the Walters Art Museum have been asking this month as they enter the museum's Renaissance and Baroque galleries and spot the famous lady smiling down at them. Actually, as a wall label notes, it's not the "real" Mona Lisa. Instead, it is a copy -- albeit a very good one -- painted by an unknown French artist probably sometime in the 16th or 17th century.

For years, Leonardo stood under a bush in Mary Kay Pogar's front yard, red cap at a jaunty angle, thick book tucked under an arm. Then, on a summer day in 2005, the gnome disappeared. After a stop at Pogar's lab at a Towson hospital, he jetted around on Air Force One, went ice fishing in Antarctica and trotted along the Great Wall of China -- at least, if all the photos posted in the lab lounge were to be believed. For Pogar, a pathologist's assistant at Greater Baltimore Medical Center, the images were a tip-off that a co-worker filched her gnome.

Not since Robert Downey Jr. in Chaplin has a star grown as an actor and grown up within a role as excitingly as Leonardo DiCaprio does as Howard Hughes in The Aviator. And The Aviator zooms light years beyond Chaplin as a movie. DiCaprio leaps onto the screen as a 21-year- -old moviemaking tyro and airplane nut mounting an unprecedented spectacle, Hell's Angels (1930), with the largest private fleet of biplanes in the world and a number of cameras that provokes disbelief even from Louis B. Mayer.
