Mystery movies in which some poor schnook is lured into a murderous web by a sexy woman are a distinct sub-genre, from "The Postman Always Rings Twice" to "Body Heat."Thus "Deadly Desire," the latest world premiere film on the USA basic cable network tonight at 9, seems at first like a pretty familiar tale.Jack Scalia is the apparent schnook, a former cop who is a partner in a private security firm. He becomes attracted to one of the firm's clients, played by Kathryn Harrold, a woman whose husband collects guns and travels a lot, leaving her alone in a swanky San Diego home.

You don't need to be caught outdoors in subfreezing temperatures to get into trouble with hypothermia. Two elderly Maryland women have died in their homes this winter because indoor temperatures got too low. People older than 60, or younger than 1 year, have the most difficulty regulating their body heat when temperatures in their homes go below 69 degrees. Check on your aging relatives and neighbors. Make sure they have working furnaces and plenty of heat. And let's put some hats on those babies.

The most impressive thing you can say about "China Moon" is that it cares enough to steal from the very best.The movie, with minor adjustments, is a virtual tracing of Lawrence Kasdan's dazzlingly provocative and amusing "Body Heat" of 12 years ago, Kasdan's first movie and still the best thing he's ever done."

CHINATOWN SPECIAL COLLECTOR'S EDITION Paramount Home Entertainment / $14.95 Film noir, a genre that lays bare the basic rottenness of human nature, is not dead -- it's just hard to pull off nowadays. Rian Johnson's Brick was a surprisingly feisty genre entry back in 2005 (and it was even set in a high school). Lawrence Kasdan's Body Heat (1981) followed all the noir rules, while sexing things up considerably for post-ratings-code audiences. AMAZING JOURNEY: THE STORY OF THE WHO Universal / $29.98 The history of the band that brought the world "Magic Bus," Tommy and, in the late Keith Moon, the archetype of the crazed rock 'n' roll drummer, is chronicled in this two-disc set. Included are vintage performances and interviews.

She's a cruel mistress. Selfish and utterly without conscience, she does what she wants, and no amount of money or love can dissuade her from her hungers. Even if she loves you, it's no good unless she loves you all the way. Men die for her approval,and so do women, but whether or not she gives it is entirely up to her.Of course I speak not, ladies and gentleman, of the phenomenon or the person known as Madonna. No indeed, I speak rather of the cruel and capricious mistress known as the motion picture camera, and no amount of publicity or number of gold records or magazine covers can buy her off. She sees what she sees, and it's always the truth.

In the face of cold weather guaranteed to freeze any shivering timbers, it's best to practice some common sense guidelines to protect yourself, says a local doctor.The No. 1 rule: When venturing outside, cover up physical extremities. "Ears, nose, fingers, toes, anything that sticks out," says Dr. Elizabeth Tso, an attending physician in the emergency room at the University of Maryland Medical Center.The deep-freeze temperatures would be bad enough on those extremities the thermometer is not likely to top 25 degrees with lows in the single digits today but high winds will make it feel like 25 to 35 degrees below zero.

History books may say that the Russians beat Napoleon, but it was frostbite and French surgeons who really did him in. During the day, Napoleon's troops marched in the bitter cold, freezing their fingers and toes. During the night, the French surgeons rubbed snow on the frostbitten extremities, causing so much tissue damage that many soldiers had to have fingers and toes amputated.If Napoleon's troops had been able to dress differently for the cold, history might have turned out differently.

Exercising al fresco is one of the great pleasures of summertime. But heat waves and humidity can turn a refreshing long run into a sweat-drenched experiment in heat exhaustion. Overheating causes fatigue and dizziness. That's annoying enough. As internal temperatures rise above 100 degrees, athletes may experience cramps, headaches, nausea and vomiting. By the time core temperatures reach 104, the body rebels from hyperthermia. If the athlete keeps pushing and internal temperatures pass 104 degrees, the athlete risks "organ failure and death from heat stroke," says Dr. Aurelia Nattiv, professor in UCLA's Department of Family Medicine, Division of Sports Medicine.

Hypothermia, which could have been a factor in the deaths in the Patapsco River yesterday, occurs when the core body temperature falls below the normal 98.6 degrees and impairs muscular and brain functions. The condition is accelerated by exposure to water. Water conducts heat away from the body 25 times faster than air, which is why it's so important to take off wet clothes when you're cold. The colder the water, the faster the body's temperature plummets. The temperature of the Patapsco River yesterday was about 44 degrees, officials said.

IN CENTRAL IRAQ - For all the successes coalition troops have had during the past couple of days, according to Pentagon reports, a new enemy has surrounded them and is beginning to have an effect: the heat. This is the time of year in the Persian Gulf region when temperatures don't just creep up by a degree or two but jump by 10 or even 20 degrees from one day to the next. And in the past several days, the temperatures have become noticeably higher, hitting 88 in Baghdad, 18 degrees higher than when the war began.
