What a week for repertory films! Without going to the multiplex you could see a terrific movie almost every night. Tonight, catch The Spider's Stratagem, Bernardo Bertolucci's haunting 1970 film, based upon a Jorge Luis Borges short story about a young man who returns to his hometown to find that a monument to his political-hero father has been defaced. It's in the Masters of Italian Cinema series. On Saturday, think Ida Lupino. The Hard Way (also playing tonight) and The Man I Love, both excellent '40s melodramas, star the hard-boiled actress, respectively, as a sister who pushes her sibling to success and as a second-rate singer who saves her sister's marriage but loses her own guy. Also on the schedule is The Trouble With Angels, a 1966 serious comedy directed by Lupino about a convent-school girl (Hayley Mills)

IF GOOD SENSE prevails, as it usually does for Chip Kelly, then the Tim Tebow era in Philadelphia will end with final cuts, due Saturday at 4 p.m. Oh, there were some fun times: the fourth quarter against the Colts in the preseason opener, and . . . well . . . Anyway: How could Kelly let such a good thing die? Well, because Tim Tebow does not throw the football very hard, or very accurately, or very quickly. These, for a quarterback, are called liabilities. Shortcomings.

Imagine you have a pony that gets paid a mind-boggling amount of money for making a weekly appearance at a successful, long-running circus. You pinch yourself daily over this incredible, crazily lucrative stroke of fortune. Because you're pretty sure that if the circus decided it could do without your pony, you'd never find another paying gig for him, even giving kids rides at birthday parties.
