Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Revenge. Giants. Monsters. Chases. Escapes. True love. Miracles. Long Reach High School's production of The Princess Bride, based on the popular movie and book, contained all these and more. The play, adapted by director Catherine Barry and her brother, J. Patrick Barry, from the screenplay by William Goldman, transported audiences to an imaginative world while telling a tale of epic proportions in performances last Thursday through Sunday. Take a stablehand and a peasant girl, have them fall in love, turn them into a legendary pirate and a princess-to-be, and add in a giant, a vengeful Spanish swordsman, an eccentric Sicilian, a pompous prince and arrogant lackey, a few crazed townspeople, and The Princess Bride is born.

FWFR.COM What's the point? -- Four Word Film Review doesn't quite live up to its name - as its FAQ section notes, the site has evolved since the URL was chosen. But if you find haiku too loquacious, this site offers film descriptions and reviews no more than four words. The results are sometimes lame ("Oaf of office" for Primary Colors) and sometimes amusing ("Inigo introduces himself repeatedly" for Princess Bride and "Leto: Farewell to Arm" for Requiem for a Dream). What to look for --If you sign up for membership, you can post your own reviews and also rank others' reviews to help ensure the actually funny ones get their due.

Programming for open-air festivals is like programming for neighborhood theaters: You've got to know your audience. The Little Italy Outdoor Film Festival almost started a mini-riot one year when organizers decided not to open with "Moonstruck. " Never making that mistake again, they keep their surprises to the middle of the schedule. (They always close with "Cinema Paradiso. ") Here's what draws fans to some of Baltimore's other open-air series: Eclectic AVAM crowds flip for everything from 'E.T' to 'Avalon' According to the American Visionary Art Museum 's Pete Hilsee, the Flicks from the Hill audience has responded to everything from musical comedy to sci-fi fantasy and broad comedy.

If you've seen "Forrest Gump" -- and, based on the box-office returns, chances are you have -- you might want to see tonight's rerun of "The Princess Bride" on cable. Or, for other reasons, you might want to see an old docudrama about Richard Nixon or a new made-for-TV movie starring Gary Busey's son. At any rate, there are very few reasons I can muster for watching broadcast TV tonight, outside of a chance to catch a "Picket Fences" rerun.* "I Witness Video" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2)

It's Meathead!Oh, yeah, he's wearing a tie and a little blue blazer and he speaks in complete sentences and he's so laid-back he could be teaching Zen consciousness in Encino and his hair has gone the way of all hair except Robert Redford's, but it is indeed, Meathead."

ABOUT TWO this afternoon, Kathleen Heagney expects to be walking down the aisle of a Virginia church on the arm of her beaming father. She'll be dressed like a princess in a long, white gown with flowing train, and crowned with a glittery band anchoring her veil. Over months of planning, she found herself yearning for traditional flourishes, including a full Catholic mass and a niece singing "Ave Maria," to celebrate this Valentine's Day wedding. After all, it's her first, and she's 50. "I'm probably going to cry," she predicted.

The Cappie awards had the golden statuettes, the glamorous gowns and the showy musical numbers - but all of the winners at the first Baltimore gala to honor high school theater were teenagers. The Cappies - short for Critics and Awards Program - uses student critics to review high school productions and to vote on year-end awards, which were given Monday night at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. The evening embraced award-show glitz punctuated by the screams and whoops of audience members full of school spirit.
