The banners scream across cable news channels, network newsmagazines and even newspapers, sounding a lot like a western shootout that could co-star Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas: "Showdown With Saddam" "Faceoff in the Gulf" "Countdown: Iraq" If...

Times Staff WriterSome motion pictures are born great, others achieve greatness over time, but only the truly exceptional have had it both ways. Rapturously received from the moment it was released in 1953, "From Here to Eternity" remains, half a century later, a...
