A block of North Charles Street was turned into a cinematic playpen over the weekend, as thousands of movie lovers ventured to the Charles Theatre and its environs to sample everything from a 90-second short celebrating gnats to the latest film from Oscar-winning documentary director Alex Gibney. The 10th annual Maryland Film Festival launched with a shorts program Thursday evening and wrapped last night with a new work from blaxploitation film pioneer Melvin Van Peebles.

Q: It has been six months since I smoked my last cigarette, and now that I've successfully kicked the habit, I'm wondering if my old cigarette cases (some of which are quite fancy) have any value. Some of the cases date from the '40s.A: The value of a cigarette case depends on its design, age, the material it's made from, whether it's signed by a famous maker or whether it belonged to a famous person. For instance, at a Christie's East auction in New York in June, several cigarette cases sold for sizable sums.

The folks at Turner sure love the movies. And on "The Good, The Bad and the Beautiful," it shows.This two-hour retrospective look at women in the movies, premiering at 8 p.m. tomorrow on TNT, includes clips from 43 films and enough snappy lines and snippets of memorable performances to fill a textbook.It also, somewhat sadly, reinforces the notion that Hollywood seems to have forgotten how to build movies around women. The wonderful female characters who carried films such as "The Postman Always Rings Twice," "His Girl Friday," "Camille," "Bombshell" and even a non-PC film like "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," only make more apparent the paucity of good women's roles in the movies today.

Boston--Each year, I like to close out the calendar by purging myself of the mistakes, misjudgments and misstatements that crept into this space over the past 12 months. My annual Media Culpa ritual is good for the soul, good for humility and good for the clean-slate business.Mind you, my errors are on a relatively modest scale. It was not I who said the recession was over or that the Soviet Union would hang together or that Mario Cuomo would run for president. It was the Post Office that printed 300 million Hubert Humphrey stamps with a wrong date.

The photographer known as Weegee -- Arthur Fellig, by actual name -- was a city rat with a Speed Graphic camera who roamed the streets of New York in the hours after midnight. With a mini-darkroom custom built in the trunk of his car and a police radio to guide him like a North Star of the demimonde, he wandered from atrocity to atrocity, snapping dazzlingly immediate shots of life and death, urban style, '40s-style. You've seen his brash, flash-blasted pix a million times and not known it: the hood with his head tilted back, his ruined face spewing rivers of blood behind a bullet-starred windshield; the screaming survivor of a fire that is consuming her children in a blazing tenement; the sailor grabbing a kiss from a pretty gal outside a U.S.O club.
