HORSE TALE: Brooke Shields, Gina Gershon, Clive Davis, Jim Caviezel, Johan Lindeberg and Matthew Settle were treated to an early screening of Steven Spielberg’s new epic, “War Horse,” just before the Thanksgiving weekend, courtesy of The Cinema Society. Mariska Hargitay and her husband, Peter Hermann, were anticipating the film more than others, as the latter is currently co-starring in the theatrical version of “War Horse” at Lincoln Center. “The play is so magical and I think only Steven Spielberg could capture that,” said Hargitay of the World War I drama, which features plenty of the director’s signature manipulation of the heartstrings and elegantly choreographed battle scenes. “I’ve been dying to see this movie. I’m a history buff and I like any kind of war picture,” said Cuba Gooding Jr., whose own World War II fighter pilot flick, “Red Tails,” is in theaters come January. Shields, for her part, was just happy to be in one piece following a hiccup in her matinee performance of “The Addams Family” on Broadway. “I made an exit today that was very grand — I fell down all the stairs into the bleachers. So maybe that will be on YouTube.”
