Olivia de Havilland wears her 82 years like a new frock and her fame like sensible pumps. With spun-silver hair upswept into a halo and brown eyes brimming with devilry, milady of the Italian bosom and French ankles gambols into the hotel suite. She looks less movie queen than Queen Mum, a role she played in the 1982 telefilm Charles and Diana. And although the valentine face is creased here and there, it beams like that of the lass who was Maid Marian in The Adventures of Robin Hood and Melanie in Gone With the Wind.

Imagine That , a family comedy about a workaholic Dad who finds that fatherhood is as rewarding as finance, reminded me of how funny Eddie Murphy is without a fat suit or flatulence gags. Murphy is the buttoned-down Evan, a Denver securities analyst so preoccupied at the firm that he forgets to pick up Olivia, his 6-year-old daughter, on custody days. Yara Shahidi, wide-eyed and adorable, is Olivia. She brings out in Murphy what's been missing from films such as Norbit - spontaneous play.

The bacchanalian association notwithstanding, "Twelfth Night" is better served by its alternate title, "What You Will" (the only Shakespeare play so equipped), for in the fanciful kingdom of Illyria, where only the official fool is wholly sane, the whiftiness of the populace is rooted in the conceit that whatever one regards as reality - however off-the-wall - is the way things are, baby. Orsino, who thinks he is in love with Olivia, sends Viola, whom he believes to be a man named Sebastian, to do a John Alden on Olivia.

The Arden Theatre's Twelfth Night is an uneven production that reminds us why the first thing we should heed in the comedy is the warning implicit in Shakespeare's second line. "Give me excess of it," Duke Orsino (Patrick Brinker) urges his musicians. He is, of course, one of the many victims of excess and extremities of passion in the play. From Orsino, who prefers the idea of love over the personal pursuit of it, to Malvolio's deluded self-love, Twelfth Night is crammed with souls who have lost their equilibrium.

This review originally appeared in Tuesday's Inquirer. Nicole Holofcener has made three features in 10 years, and each - Walking and Talking, Lovely & Amazing and, now, Friends With Money - could easily be defined as "small. " There are no car chases, no cataclysmic events, no mutant superheroes. There was, however, a dead cat. Mothers and daughters argue. Best friends commiserate. Men and women grapple with grown-up stuff like jobs, loneliness, sex, commitment, raising children, and wondering what video to rent.

Delish and dazzling: this Twelfth Night is Shakespearean comedy true to the text but made gorgeously fresh by a brilliant young director, Rebecca Taichman. In association with the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, McCarter Theatre's production is a celebration of love, what Taichman calls "a deep freeze that thaws into a playground of desire. " Orsino (Christopher Innvar) speaks the play's first lines: "If music be the food of love, play on;/ Give me excess of it. . . . " And excess is what everybody gets - wild love, a half-dozen plots, spectacular costumes by Miranda Hoffman.

Olivia McGarvey was paying attention. The Avon Grove sophomore listened as the Red Devils outfielders talked about the impact the wind was having as they tried to shag fly balls Monday. Then she watched as the majority of the pitches she faced were on the outside of the plate. McGarvey walked to the plate in the seventh inning, the score knotted at 2, and put both pieces of information together. She went with the pitch and sent the ball soaring into right. It dropped in for the winning RBI double in a 4-2 victory at West Chester Rustin - with some help from the wind.

The ninth inning ended with Coatesville first baseman Dom Ricevuto collecting a ground ball and running to the bag for the out. The Raiders dispersed and their opponent - Avon Grove - emerged from the dugout. That's when the umpire yelled, "International tiebreaker. " Right, the international tiebreaker rule. They hadn't gone over "ITB" yet, Avon Grove ace Maggie Balint thought to herself. In all of the practices before and during the season and the extra time spent after practice with her mother, Jennifer, ITB never came up. That wouldn't be a problem for Avon Grove.

'The whirligig of time' brings surprises. Among them is Britain's avant-garde Filter Theatre's production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night , commissioned by the august Royal Shakespeare Company. It turns out to be a frat party. And like wild, loud parties, it's fun, although there are definite dips into the stupid and the self-consciously cute. Whether you'll quite follow the plot (radically trimmed) if you don't already know the play is anybody's guess, especially as the lines are often delivered in flat, contemporary London accents.

OLIVIA MATILDA SANDERS, a daughter of the South, brought her religious faith, her cooking skills and her deft needlework to Philadelphia at an early age. Her fried chicken was spectacular and her peach cobbler outstanding, but she was also known to family and friends as a quilt- maker whose products were coveted by all who saw them. She never made a dime quilting; all her work went to family and friends, or were donated to various charitable enterprises. She could sit for six to eight hours at a time making her quilts - but never on Sunday.

On the day that Olivia Robb's mother, Ellen Gregory Robb, was beaten to death in the family's Upper Merion home, police led the 12-year-old girl to where her father, Rafael, sat in a nearby ambulance. "He told me not to worry, that everything would be fine," Olivia Robb testified Tuesday, speaking to jurors in the Montgomery County Court wrongful-death suit against her father. "No matter what I was told. " Instead, she lost both her parents. Within weeks, her father was behind bars for the killing.

The deal: Crepes, packed with sweet and savory ingredients that are sometimes surprising. Lime in a sweet crepe? Yes, please! The Kyra crepe with cinnamon, sugar and, yes, lime is fantastic. A best-seller is the Orlando (blend of three Mexican cheeses, guacamole, chipotle sour cream, spinach, roasted chicken). Another surprise: a saucy, cheesy pizza crepe.   We had: (And loved) the Ronnie (grilled chicken, three cheeses, tomatoes, pesto) and the Olivia (dark chocolate, strawberries, whipped cream)
