"When I was 10 or 11, I vividly remember watching [old] footage of
concentration camps and my gut tightening like a screw," says Liam Neeson, 41,
who stars in Schindler's List as Oskar Schindler, the German industrialist
responsible for saving more than 1,200 Jews during World War II. Even when the
Holocaust was re-created on a movie set, Neeson found it almost too much to
bear. "When I wasn't working, I didn't want to visit the set. I knew I'd be
drawn into a depression, and Schindler was supposed to be upbeat."
Nonetheless, the filming is not an experience the actor will soon forget. He
still proudly wears the circular Jewish Concentration Camp Survivor lapel pin
given to him by Holocaust survivor Poldek Pfefferberg, 80, who was saved by
Schindler and worked as a consultant on the movie. Explains Neeson: "I
wouldn't dare wear it, except Pfefferberg pinned it on me himself."

After several years spent mostly producing and directing TV and feature films,
Henry Winkler, formerly the Fonz, returns Jan. 11 to weekly TV to star as a
right-wing talk show host in Fox's new sitcom Monty. The role breaks new
ground for Winkler, whose Happy Days' character is still a favorite with fans.
"Last year I took my three children to a Dodgers game, and they flashed my
picture on Diamond Vision, and everyone started to chant my name [`Henry,
Henry!']," says Winkler, 48, recalling the amazement of daughter Zoe, 13. "She
said, `Dad, it's so funny to think you were the idol of millions. They don't
know who you really are.' "

Robert Duvall feels a strong kinship with the gentlemanly Cuban retiree he
plays in Wrestling Ernest Hemingway. He even wears his character's two-tone
shoes. "I love Latin culture," says Duvall, 63, who speaks Spanish and studies
the tango, Argentina's national dance. For this movie, Duvall saturated
himself in Miami's Cuban culture. "I went to social clubs, bingo halls and
dances, soaking in the aura, the Spanish gentleman thing," he says. "I'd grab
something and use it on the set the next day." But the inspiration for his
Latin-style dance, which opens and closes the film, comes from New York City,
where Duvall makes his home. "I know a Cuban guy who one New Year's Eve danced
with a glass of water on his head. That kind of control is what I emulated in
the movie."
