The Wicker Man is too loony to be a drama, too earnest to be a comedy, too predictable to be a horror film. All that, and it wastes the talents of Nicolas Cage, playing a traffic cop-cum-detective who couldn't find a clam at a clambake. The film remakes the 1973 cult classic about an innocent, weak-willed Christian policeman (Edward Woodard) who, while searching for a lost girl, finds himself caught up in a bizarre fertility ritual on a remote Scottish island. But the new film abandons the religious subtext that was crucial to the earlier film, not to mention the wanton sexuality represented by Britt Ekland as the island's focal priestess.

In designing an interior, as in so many other of life's activities, it's important not to be misled by preconceptions.A certain type of furnishing, for example, ought not be rejected solely because it is associated with a look that's not to our liking or that seems inappropriate for a style we are trying to create. Every element, regardless of the assumptions that surround it, should be judged on its own terms.Some wonderful surprises will result from this method of evaluating objects. On the other hand, the tendency to pigeonhole pieces into strict categories leads to predictable, boring interiors.

George Herbert Walker Bush, by Tom Wicker. Viking. 228 pages. $19.95. Clare Boothe Luce once said that history remembers even the greatest presidents with one sentence. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves and saved the union. Franklin D. Roosevelt led the nation out of the Depression and won World War II. So what will George Herbert Walker Bush's sentence be? In this brief biography, the veteran journalist suggests that the elder Bush's greatest accomplishment may merely have been becoming president.

Even though I like a mixture of furniture styles, I'm having trouble producing an informally elegant atmosphere in my large living room. Can you give me some general guidance?I suggest that you keep things simple both in color and line. The floor, walls and curtains could all be done in shades of bleached linen, while at least some of the furniture might be in a similar color. The type of furnishings -- rustic, traditional or modern -- is less important than their color, which should not be dark.

Q: Years ago a friend gave me an unopened bottle of "Old Mock Whiskey" made in 1916 according to its still-intact federal tax stamp. It was bottled in 1933 during Prohibition. Both its bright green and red box and tax stamp are clearly marked "Medicinal Use Only," the only way to legally acquire whiskey during Prohibition. Who might want it and how much is it worth?A: It's unusual to find an unopened Prohibition-era whiskey bottle with its box in such good condition. But you might not be able to sell it in some states without a liquor license.

MARC train service was suspended on the Camden line between Baltimore and Washington after a person was struck by a CSX Corp. freight train in Laurel, a MARC official said.

The MARC train travels between Oriole Park at Camden Yards and Union Station, she said. No information was available on the victim, she said. MTA officials could not estimate when service would be restored, Wicker said.

When Patti Montgomery moved to a gambrel-roofed cottage in Roland Park, she immediately claimed a small, first-floor room as her own. "I am the mother of three boys and I wanted a place of my own to escape to for peace and quiet," she says with a tTC laugh.She chose the room because it was the sunniest in the house, and painted it pinkish mauve, put up white eyelet curtains and furnished it with a few Victorian pieces from her former home in Jacksonville, Fla.Although the room served her purpose of providing a sanctuary of sorts, she was not quite satisfied with the decor.

Few things can be more maddening in a movie than to have events turning continuously on various and sundry dimes; surely, the mark of a weak script (or a lazy scriptwriter) is to have outcomes that hinge on timely happenstance. But the weirdly exhilarating thing about Wicker Park is the reckless abandon with which it embraces the convenience of coincidence, and then the extreme measures it takes to reassure the audience that it's not a movie about coincidence at all, but rather manipulation, obsession, the boundaries of love and the lengths to which the human heart will go to satisfy itself.
