Two films airing on Showtime today may be enough for you to consider calling in sick today, or at least taking a long lunch.Maggie Smith won the first of her two Academy Awards for 1969's "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" (11: 15 a.m.-1: 15 p.m.), where she's marvelous as a teacher at a Scottish girls' school in 1932 whose students become immersed in art, music and some ill-chosen politics. There are even a few romantic subplots and some schoolgirl conniving thrown in for good measure. But the story is secondary to Smith, who's so good that her performance has since become a model for every would-be actress trying to portray an English schoolteacher.

RECENTLY I read in the newspaper that Jane Fonda is happiest when she spends four hours a day exercising.This was according to her media mogul fiance Ted Turner, who did not specify exactly what Ms. Fonda does in those four hours, but hinted that it was rigorous enough to leave a Green Beret clutching his chest and gasping for breath.Of course, ol' Ted couldn't just let it go at that. He also felt compelled to blab about his fiancee's eating habits.According to Mr. Turner, this is what passes for meals in the Jane Fonda household:Breakfast: a shake made from protein powder, ice cubes and a few berries.
