Harold Pruett, who plays the outsider on the new "Hull High," tells a story about Sophia Loren: He was filming "The Fortunate Pilgrim" in Yugoslavia with the actress. "The food was really greasy and I wasn't eating. After a month and a half she noticed that I was getting thin. I told her I didn't like the food. About three days later I got a call.

To see it alone in that theater, its gigantic crowd and battle scenes playing over a sea of empty seats, is to recall Ozymandias' proud boast on a scrap of ruined marble in a desert: "Look on my works, Ye Mighty, and Despair."
