The Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor takes place only near the end of "From Here to Eternity" (1953). But it's an ideal selection for the Maryland Historical Society's series, "Patriotic Hollywood: World War II in Film." Stephen Ambrose once wrote, "What held [American GIs] together was not country and flag, but unit cohesion." "From Here to Eternity" is about the pain of building that unit cohesion and the rewards it gives to all who join it, be they selfless, selfish or damaged.

Neighborhood activists will renew their fight against an absentee landowner who wants to double the number of homes that can be built on an 11.3-acre tract on Ballman Avenue.The landowner, Georgia Clift, wants her property rezoned R-10 to permit 10 housing units per acre.Clift, who moved to New Hampshire in 1983, says the R-5 designation, which limits the number of units per acre to five, has scared away potential buyers who want to build town houses there.A county administrative hearing officer denied her request, and Clift filed an appeal, which will be heard Dec. 18 in Annapolis.

The county Board of Appeals must rehear a woman's plan to demolish a 125-year-old Brooklyn Park home and may not consider a 1994 ordinance aimed at preventing the demolition, a state appeals court ruled yesterday.The Court of Special Appeals ruled that Georgia O. Clift must present her proposal to the county appeals board a second time because the board considered the wrong ordinance when it approved the demolition of her Ballman-Gischel House on April 7, 1995.The court said that the board should not have considered a 1994 ordinance aimed at preventing destruction of historic homes because it was not enacted until two months after Clift had applied for her demolition permit.

Westminster attackman Pat Smith never got to play with his team in last year's state semifinals. With his arm in a cast, all he could do was watch from the sideline. Last night, the senior made certain that he'll get one more shot. Smith scored a career-high nine goals, helping the host Owls build a large early lead on their way to a 13-8 win over North Carroll in the Class 4A-3A, North regional final. "I was so excited last year to get there, then five minutes into practice I break my arm," said Smith, who also had a pair of assists.

Creative Alliance's "Baltimore Movie Museum" film series, a regular Wednesday night event programmed by George Figgs and Alana Roth, this week double-bills Howard Hawks' 1948 Red River and Nicholas Ray's 1954 Johnny Guitar under the title "Closet Hollywood." Ray's movie is a camp Western classic, but in Hawks' picture homosexual subtext is one element of an epic canvas. The key "gay" scene in Red River comes when John Ireland's gunslinger, after joining John Wayne's cattle drive, challenges Wayne's surrogate son and top lieutenant, Montgomery Clift, to a shooting contest.

It was nearly 10 p.m. when the orchestra leader in Boston's Cocoanut Grove nightclub lifted his baton to signal the playing of the national anthem as a prelude to the club's floor show. It was the last Saturday night of November 1942, and a wartime crowd of soldiers, sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen on leave jammed the club in Boston's theater district for an evening of pleasure. Also in the crowd were football fans who had watched Holy Cross defeat No. 1 ranked Boston College in a stunning 55-12 victory at Fenway Park.
