Dropped Names: Famous Men and Women as I Knew Them

During his more than 50 years as an actor, Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon, Dracula) has met and known such luminaries as Jackie Kennedy, Rita Hayworth, the Queen Mother, Arthur Miller and Elizabeth Taylor. In his first book, Dropped Names: Famous Men and Women as I Knew Them (Harper, $26), he shares details of his encounters with more than 50 famous people, revealing intimate details of them, as well as of himself. Written with humor, tenderness and honesty, Langella’s book is both very entertaining and very personal.

Titanic 3D

By Tribune Media Services

(PG-13) ★★★★☆ The ship so nice they sank it twice, only this time, with a 3-D up-charge. James Cameron’s 1997 film returns for the 100th anniversary of the doomed vessel’s 1912 voyage. The 3-D is pretty good, but still a straight-up postproduction conversion job. Eh. But Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are back (ah, so young) with all their eye-roll-worthy dialogue. At least Cameron is a genius at instilling narrative dread and providing incredible cinematic images. The show will, you know, go on.
