Etc.

The only thing Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn were guilty of was being disloyal to Mia Farrow. That's it on that issue.

Another of Mia's children is making allegations against Allen, making sure he stays in the news.

Obituary: Oscar-winning actor Maximilian Schell, 83, has died. He won the Oscar for his performance in 1961's Judgment at Nuremberg.

Mr. Schell made his film debut in “Kinder, Mütter und ein General” (“Children, Mother and a General,” 1955) and appeared in several other West German films before leaving in 1958 for the United States, where his sister Maria Schell was already building a Hollywood movie career, starring that year in “The Brothers Karamazov.”

Mr. Schell’s acting roles did go well beyond World War II and Germany. He played Vladimir Lenin in “Stalin,” a 1992 television film; the title character in “Peter the Great,” a 1986 mini-series; and an aging cardinal in the 1996 sequel to “The Thorn Birds.” He appeared in “Topkapi” (1964), about a jewel theft in Turkey; “Krakatoa, East of Java,” set in the 19th century; “The Freshman,” a 1990 Mafia comedy; and “Deep Impact” (1998), a comet-disaster movie.
