Midweek Madness could not help but notice today's big news from the Supreme Court, and could not resist a musical blast from the past that has lyrics about such things as "love" and "justice" and "freedom" -- but is also just ever so slightly campy (this is a Scopitone performance, and you know Scopitone is just another word for camp). On top of everything else, this clip provides an excuse to celebrate the divine Debbie Reynolds. What more could you ask from a single installment of Midweek Madness?

A hotel with tacky charm; A MEMORABLE PLACEThe temperature in Las Vegas was an astounding 113 degrees when Peter and I pulled up in front of our hotel. Even our M&Ms had liquefied in the heat. Eating them was like biting into little chocolate water balloons."Get a load of this place," Peter remarked as we stared at the Debbie Reynolds Hotel & Casino - three stories of dirty white stucco dotted with backlit blowups of '40s movie stars and anchored to the pavement by an enormous half-moon painted to look like a film reel.

She survived drugs, booze, parental issues, complex relationships and a metal bikini, not to mention the electroconvulsive shock therapy that helps her cope with bipolar disorder. And Carrie Fisher has a lot to say about all of it. In 2006, the actress and writer who gained global fame as Princess Leia in the "Star Wars" saga poured her eventful life into an autobiographical show, "Wishful Drinking," which went on to play Broadway and was aired on HBO. On Tuesday, Fisher opens a two-week run of "Wishful Drinking" at the Hippodrome . "I've changed it a little bit," she said.

Sooner or later Albert Brooks will make a complete film, and it will be a peach. This ain't it.Superficially funny, "Mother" runs out of gas halfway and struggles to an ending so lame it feels more like a forfeit, a way of quitting without having to put an "Incomplete" on your resume. But that's typical of Brooks; even his best film, "Lost in America," had a bad second-half surrender.The premise is interesting, if, say, you're 12 and haunted by your mother, whom you love, hate, fear and desire all at once.

A discreetly positioned placard should warn anyon approaching the vicinity of Carrie Fisher: "Caution:Words at Play."She says: "I want to have values, instead of just being valuable."And: "I seem to take the right things in the wrong way."And: "It's not what you're given, it's how you take it."Ms. Fisher, as evidenced in her novels "Postcards from the Edge" and the new "Surrender the Pink," as well as her screenplay for the movie "Postcards from the Edge," which opens today, has a thing about verbal acuity.

CBS's "Battling for Baby," which airs tomorrow night at 9 (Channel 11), is two parts frothy fluff, one part hateful excoriation working mothers."Baby" has an old-fashioned comic approach and cast -- Suzanne Pleshette and Debbie Reynolds -- but its backlash politics put it on the cutting edge. This is is a nasty, hypocritical movie, its silly surface obscuring a vicious core.Ms. Pleshette is the concert pianist who missed her baby's early years, thanks to her career, and is now paying the price: She's brittle and insecure, and her daughter calls her by her first name.

At a Senator Theatre Classic screening of the 1955 movie "The Tender Trap" on Thursday, Academy Award-winning actress Celeste Holm thinks a sad, time-tested statement about many men and their choice of women will be revealed. In the frothy film, Frank Sinatra plays a swinging bachelor in New York City dating several beautiful women, but none seriously - until he meets a young, pretty ingenue (Debbie Reynolds) who's hell-bent on getting married. Holm, who will be an honoree at the Senator Theatre screening, plays Sinatra's sometime romantic interest, Sylvia.

The celebrity tabloids have been running breathless headlines all summer long. "Brad & Angelina's Electric Sex!" Star pants this week. "What Have I Done?," Life & Style strips across a photo of a distressed-looking Jennifer Aniston. And via People magazine's fall style issue comes this question: "Sweet or Sexy: What's Your Style? ... Take our quiz to find out if you're a Jen or Angelina." As the celebrity magazines aim to squeeze every gossipy drop from the Jennifer Aniston-Brad Pitt break-up, they've been peddling a story line as old as Adam and Eve. It's the tale of the wide-eyed innocent and the evil seductress.
