With a for-sale sign planted outside like a perennial, the house on St. Georges Road in tony north Roland Park is just like countless others stuck in an unforgiving housing market.Except that this house, with a swan gliding through a backyard pond, a tree-filled atrium and designer bricks, last sold for nearly $1 million in a high-stakes bidding war.And except for the fact that this house has been for sale five years.Currently, the swan, a few ducks and a caretaker live on the 1 1/4 -acre estate, overseeing the swimming pool, a lush expanse of lawn and bamboo trees shading the borders.

Hmmmmm ... y ou call that a season finale? Ryan Murphy alluded to something big happening in this episode that would forever alter the lives of this group of friends and would be the central focus of Season 6. Naturally, I ' m hoping for some realism.  A big fight would do the trick! If Derek Chavis was in charge of "Glee," that's exactly what he would do: Give the group a big fight and have them come back to pick up the pieces in the final season. Instead, they give Rachel a TV series, Mercedes a mall tour and Santana ... another Yeast-I-Stat commercial shoot in Iowa?

There is no Katharine Hepburn movie this year, so viewers who insist on charm, music, lights and laughter in their holiday movies will have to make do with "The West Side Waltz," which airs at 9 tonight on WJZ (Channel 13).Some sacrifice.Based on Ernest Thompson's stage play, "The West Side Waltz" is loaded with talent. There's a star in each of the three main roles -- Shirley MacLaine, Liza Minnelli and Jennifer Grey.As if that weren't an abundance of riches, one of Hollywood's finest actresses, Kathy Bates, plays a supporting role.

"Winchell: Gossip, Power and the Culture of Celebrity," by Neal Gabler. It's brand new and a great book. It puts you on Broadway in the 1920s, the end of Vaudeville and yellow journalism. I've been reading biographies lately. I read both the Brandos, the first by Manso and then his version and Shirley Maclaine's.George Figgs, owner of theOrpheum Cinema, Fells Point

Horrible old aunts sometimes pinch the cheeks of children to make them rosy for photographers. I thought of that in "Used People," not because it's full of horrible old aunts -- although it is -- but because each character seems to have had his or hercheeks pinched by the director.Everybody has been brought to the fullest red-cheeked bloom of "character" and behaves with madcap zaniness throughout. There's not a moment of stillness or repose: It's all squawk and blather or tinpot tragedies playing out in badly decorated living rooms.

Shirley MacLaine, as a former first lady, and Nicolas Cage, as her hangdog Secret Service protector, make a nice team in "Guarding Tess" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11), but the real reason to watch -- for folks around here -- is the star turn by Baltimore and Maryland.Standing in for "Summersville, Ohio," metropolitan Baltimore pops up several times during the 1994 film. There's Laboreore, a 125-year-old Mount Washington mansion that plays Tess' home; there's Kernan Hospital, playing a hospital; there's a spot alongside Loch Raven, playing host to a picnic; there's well, we wouldn't want to give them all away.

The makers of "The Evening Star" are so worried that you won't remember its predecessor from 13 years ago, "Terms of Endearment," that they continually interrupt the movie to show you photos of the first cast. There's Debra Winger as Shirley MacLaine's doomed daughter Emma, and there's Jeff Daniels as her feckless, worthless son-in-law Flap.This must happen at least 10 times, and each time it's a mistake, because it reminds you that almost no one in this movie is as good as anyone in that movie, and that this movie doesn't get any closer to your heart than your gag reflex, while that one nested instantly between the ventricles.

Talk-show host and so-so actress Ricki Lake is buoyed by a fortunate cast in "Mrs. Winterbourne," a modern fairy-tale that begins awkwardly but will eventually win over most romantics.It's a lot like "While You Were Sleeping" in its mistaken-identity plot (Does the line "I fell in love with you all!" sound familiar?), but "Mrs. W" is far more uneven. Still, like a vacation occasionally interrupted by bad weather, it's a pleasant escape.Lake plays Connie Doyle, a dim 18-year-old who goes to New Yawk, hooks up with a loser, gets pregnant and is thrown out on the street.

Rating -- PG-13. THE RINGER What it's about -- A nice guy in a bind helps his shady uncle "fix" the Special Olympics by posing as mentally disabled and entering the competition. The Kid Attractor Factor -- Johnny Knoxville, in the role he was born to play. Good lessons/bad lessons -- Don't let other people limit what you do with your life. And cheaters never prosper. Violence -- Slapstick pratfalls. Language -- Special Olympians can teach us all a little something about cursing. Sex -- Discussed, but not in any depth.

A producer friend has a personal insult for a film so thin it doesn't seem to exist: He calls it "a rumor." He'll find Rumor Has It an apt title. There's some sass to the set-up: what if a confused woman named Sarah Huttinger (Jennifer Aniston) discovered that her late mother and her salty, still-kicking grandmother (Shirley MacLaine) were the real-life models for Elaine and Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate? And what if she searched for "Benjamin Braddock," who bedded them both, and found that he's Beau Burroughs (Kevin Costner)

Set in Philadelphia and Florida, In Her Shoes is a fractured contemporary Cinderella story with first-rate movie craftsmanship and no real fairy-tale lift to it. It boasts one wicked stepmother (Candice Azzara) and two sisters suffering from low self-esteem: Maggie (Cameron Diaz), a feckless beauty who panics at the prospect of reading, and Rose (Toni Collette), a zaftig lawyer who overachieves her way straight out of life's pleasures, including healthy relationships with men. Instead of a fairy godmother, we get an understanding grandmother (Shirley MacLaine)

One of Barbra Streisand's greatest roles was her portrayal of comedian Fanny Brice in "Funny Girl." And comedians, of course, subscribe to the long-lived show-biz motto that one should "always leave 'em laughing."But Sunday night, as Ms. Streisand finished her final encore at the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim in California, the big room was awash in tears.After all, the 52-year-old Ms. Streisand had performed the final show of her first tour in 28 years -- a tour she swears will be her last.Because the concert had been postponed from May 31 because of the singer's laryngitis, it meant that 13,000 cheering, whistling, stomping fans -- many of whom forked over $350 for a ticket -- unexpectedly got to witness show-business history.
