By Ronald Grover and Chris Michaud LOS ANGELES/NEW YORK (Reuters) - "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the sequel to Marvel's 2011 film about the red, white and blue superhero, smashed its way to $96.2 million in weekend ticket sales, setting a new record for an April release and speeding past last week's winner, "Noah." In the process, it also validated the strategy of the film's distributor, Walt Disney Co , to ramp up its pipeline of films featuring super heroes made famous by bashing bad guys in Marvel Comics. "Captain America," which stars Chris Evans as a scrawny World War Two reject given super powers from an experimental serum, easily exceeded the April take for the racing movie "Fast Five," which collected $86.2 million in ticket sales in April 2011. Since Disney bought Marvel for $4 billion in 2009, Marvel characters have starred in some of Hollywood's biggest hits. More »Disney's latest hero, 'Captain America,' sets box office record

By Bill Trott WASHINGTON (Reuters) - CIA officials had rave reviews for Boris Pasternak's classic Russian novel "Doctor Zhivago" - not for its literary merit but as a propaganda weapon in the Cold War, the Washington Post reported on Sunday.
