SNOW WHITER: “Snow White and the Seven...
SNOW WHITER: “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” is amazingly clean by today’s standards . . . the contents, not the actual film, which grew dirty over time. So the cartoon classic about a maiden’s life among a gang of little miners was restored by Cinesite in Burbank (F2). Each of its 119,500 frames was digitized into a computer and polished up . . . an 18-week job for more than 100 artists and technicians.
UNDYING WORDS: It’s been over a quarter-century since U.S. Catholic churches switched from Latin to English as the language of the Mass. . . . But not all of them. Small, dedicated groups keep alive the ancient Latin rite in both church-approved and independent ceremonies in Mission Hills, Canoga Park and Santa Clarita. See John Dart’s Religion column, page B9
‘SOCIOPATHS’: A Van Nuys judge is screening testimony by the key witness against the Menendez brothers--therapist L. Jerome Oziel, above. The judge ruled that the brothers’ own description of themselves as “sociopaths” was so loaded he won’t allow jurors to hear it (B1) . . . The jurors can hear, however, that the brothers said they were “turned on” by their careful planning to kill their parents.
INTO THE SUNSET: Once, the Newhall Pharmacy was the center of a Western cow town with a Hollywood touch. Stars like Gene Autry, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans hung out at the soda fountain. Ranchers could find animal vaccines in the cooler. After 52 years, Newhall’s first pharmacist calls it quits today at age 86 (B18). . . . His Newhall is long gone.
OVERLOOKED LESSON: Kevin Hambly of Simi Valley desperately wanted to play volleyball at Cal State Northridge. But CSUN Coach John Price never came to see him, so Hambly wound up at Brigham Young. Price is getting a look at what he missed at the U.S. Olympic Festival, where Hambly helped Price’s North team reach tonight’s gold medal game (C14).
