Face it. Beards are everywhere - and we're not talking about a little stubble. More guys are wearing full-out fuzzy beards and mustaches - scruffy and dense like bracken, or elegantly coiffed and pointed like topiary - and the evidence of facial fawning grows. Manhattan's International Beauty Show this month hosted as many bearded models and clipper demonstrations as it did colorists and tall coifs. Cosmetic surgeons such as Ardmore's Rumer Cosmetic Surgery offer facial hair transplants (for $3,000)

Beset by the prospect of layoffs and struggling to curb classroom assaults, Philadelphia's beleaguered school police are aggrieved over another issue these days: a new dress and grooming code that bans goatees and "soul patches" but permits beards. "This is going to prevent violence in the schools?" asked Michael Lodise, president of the union representing 635 part- and full-time school police. His union filed grievances after Chief Myron Patterson, who took over school police operations last summer on loan from the city, formulated a new code.

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody's there to hear it, does it make a sound? And if a man shaves off his mustache and nobody notices that it's gone, did he ever really have one? And does he even exist? That's the central question in Emmanuel Carr?re's La Moustache, an intriguing study of identity, marriage and, perhaps, madness. Adapted from his own 1987 novel, Carr?re's keenly observed puzzler begins innocently enough in the apartment of a seemingly happy Parisian couple, Marc and Agn?s (Vincent Lindon and Emmanuelle Devos)

It was like being transported into the 1890s at Aldan Elementary School on Saturday as the borough celebrated its hundredth. There were a beard and mustache competition, with the participants having grown the facial hair expressly for the occasion, and horse-drawn carriage rides.

A second helping of W. Wilson Goode (March 21)? I still have indigestion from the first. This shows how pathetic this city's political and business climate must be to allow a person who cost this city millions (and still counting) to continue to maintain a presence here. By the way, your honor, lose the facial hair. It's as cheesy as your two terms in office were. JOHN SFORZA, Philadelphia

Compared to Louie Zamperini, Job had it easy. After crashing in the Pacific in World War Two, Zamperini drifted in a lifeboat for 47 days before being sent to a POW camp in Japan, where the commandant took a personal interest in making Zamperini's life hellacious. Unbroken is a fitting title for this excruciating cinematic treatment of the flyboy's ordeal. It plays like an endless, unrelieved gauntlet of suffering, an onslaught untempered by grace or redemption. If director Angelina Jolie was aiming for torture, she hit the mark.

VOORHEES Jeff Langum's beard is a natural wonder. Like a waterfall, it cascades from his face, a magnificent, meticulously groomed gush of curly salt-and-copper rivulets. So extraordinary is Langum's long, lush, and bushy creation - it recently won a world championship - that I simply must ask to touch it. "Go ahead," says the married father of two, who frequently, and graciously, grants such requests. Frequent as well are reactions like mine: I'm surprised by his majestic mane's almost delicate softness.

THESE stylish Philadelphians of a certain age possess what I call "advanced style. " They exude a long-forgotten sense of class in which men and women dressed more for style than comfort. These seasoned ladies don pearls, dress hats, Chanel bags and kitten heels on their feet. The mature guys are sporting facial hair, classic navy sport coats, vintage eyeglass frames and Belgiumloafers. Their style, like fine wine, just gets better with age.   Contact Reuben Harley at BIGRUBE@streetgazing.com , or follow on Twitter @BigRubeHarley.

What's the difference between "Scream" and its wild child "Scream 2"? Four deaths, 12 screams, 29 curse words and five cordless phones. Mr. Showbiz, an entertainment site on the Internet, did an informal survey comparing the two Wes Craven slash pictures and came up with some interesting statistics. While "Scream 2" has more dead bodies than "Scream" (11 to seven), it is more PG in other respects. For example, the second picture has 12 fewer actual screams, 29 fewer naughty words and no sex (compared with one sex scene in the first "Scream")

While the New York Yankees and Derek Jeter couldn't work out a deal and went before arbitrators yesterday, All-Star second baseman Ray Durham got a $20 million, four-year contract from the Chicago White Sox. Jeter, who appeared in his first All-Star Game last summer, asked a three-man panel for $5 million, which would match Ruben Sierra's 1992 salary with Texas as the second-highest ever awarded in arbitration. The only higher award was the $5.3 million pitcher Jack McDowell got from the Chicago White Sox in 1994 - when he lost his case.

WHEN YOU practice immigration law, your idea of what it means to be "American" is both fluid and sacred. The fluidity comes in seeing new applicants for that great gift of citizenship with their changing faces and histories. Color, creed and cadence are interesting variations on a theme of longing to belong, but they're ultimately inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. Multicultural isn't all that it's cracked up to be, if you listen to my clients. It's simply the politics of "feel good.

When Rey and Nicole met a year ago, neither knew that they shared a life-changing secret. It was one that had tormented each of them as far back as they could remember - and that ultimately brought them together. Rey had gone to an event at his church, and spotted Nicole across a crowded room. "There was something about her that spoke to me," he recalls. "I thought, 'There she is . . . the girl you've been waiting for.' " Nicole, a lean, sandy-haired beauty, didn't sense Rey's eyes on her, even when he headed her way. But once he came close, the chemistry between them was undeniable.

THE MOST wings Jason Kelce had ever eaten in one sitting was 70 at an all-you-can-eat Hooters extravaganza. He's going to have to do better than that on Friday when he participates in WIP's Wing Bowl 22. Yesterday at the NovaCare Complex, media gathered to watch as the Eagles center participated in his qualifier so he could become the first active athlete to take part in the annual bock-bockanalia. Morning show co-host Al Morganti presented Kelce with his challenge: five wings in five minutes.

JOSH REDDICK has gotten himself into a hairy situation. The A's outfielder opened the season with facial hair that rivals that of Michael J. Fox in "Teen Wolf. " Last month, Reddick accepted a beard-growing challenge from WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan. On the top of his Twitter account, Reddick proudly proclaims: "I have two jobs . . . Play baseball and BEAT DANIEL BRYAN IN A BEARDOFF!" So far, it looks like Reddick will win. A photo circulating on the Internet shows last year's Gold Glove winner with the hair on his head combed over his face.
