WHAT WE generically call Broadway covered itself with glory last week when Bernadette Peters and Glenn Close tossed a real showbiz party to celebrate John Travolta's performance playing a woman in the hit film Hair- spray. And now with awards season upon us, there is hope for an Oscar nod in John's direction. Hairspray producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron were also honorees. They are men who constantly seek to celebrate the triumphs of The Great White Way by taking its material to the screen.

AFP: American Fighter Pilot is a classic example of what U.S. media does better than almost anything: Create myths that make us feel better about ourselves as a nation. CBS is billing the show that premieres tomorrow night as a "new reality series" from directors Tony Scott (Top Gun) and Ridley Scott (Black Hawk Down). In terms of structure, it is a reality series in the way that it follows three young Air Force officers through 110 days of Top Gun training to become F-15 fighter pilots, the elite of elite.

SUN SCORE ** The marketers of Man on Fire have launched a monstrous bait-and-switch media campaign. They've sent Denzel Washington on the morning talk shows with touching clips of his character, a scarred bodyguard, bonding with the luminous 10-year-old Dakota Fanning. They've provided only fleeting glimpses or discussion of the picture's mayhem - a relatively clean RPG assault on a motorcade, for example, instead of the scene where Washington rips some digits from a thug and cauterizes the wounds with a cigarette lighter.

Deja Vu is a misnomer. This elaborate, action-packed thriller centers on a cutting-edge FBI surveillance unit that enlists ATF agent Denzel Washington to solve the bombing of a jammed New Orleans ferry. The film is tense and engrossing. But it lacks exactly what the title advertises: the sense of inexplicable familiarity that should haunt you as the story unfolds and leave you all a-tingle when it ends. Deja vu (Touchstone) Starring Denzel Washington, Paula Patton, Jim Caviezel, Val Kilmer, Adam Goldberg.

The conflict between a woman's inner good girl and inner bad girl is a great movie subject. Unfortunately, it remains untapped in Domino, the "inspired-by-fact" story of a ferocious female bounty hunter who in the end displays a heart of tarnished gold. Domino (Keira Knightley), the daughter of a British movie star, Laurence Harvey (Room at the Top, The Manchurian Candidate), and a London model (played by Jacqueline Bisset), chucks pampering and privilege to grab fugitives and bail-jumpers off the mean streets and out of the crummy motels and trailer parks of the American West.
