In the 30 years since Vanessa Redgrave first dazzled Americans as the loopy rich girl ditching an impossible husband in "Morgan!", this English actress often seemed to be living at cross-purposes. She would win raves for her performances, then lose jobs with her support for unpopular causes.In the late 1980s, she became a shadow in newspapers and magazines by demanding that reporters agree not to ask her about politics, as if there were two Vanessa Redgraves whose passions remained strangers, perhaps enemies.

Your beloved Midweek Madness featurette is a day late on purpose, so it could burst forth in rhapsodic song, with pastel lighting and silly choreography (not to mention thoughts "wholesome or un-") to mark the first day of "The Lusty Month of May. " After the wretched rains that had the very earth moving in Baltimore as April finally ended, we're just hoping for The Dry Month of May. Feel free to sing and dance along with Vanessa Redgrave and company. "Go blissfully astray," too, if you like.

Kathleen Tynan, 57, who won widespread acclaim for a biography of her late husband, drama critic Kenneth Tynan, died of cancer Tuesday in London.

Her 1987 biography, "The Life of Kenneth Tynan," was hailed as the high spot of her literary career. Her other works include the 1975 novel "The Summer Aeroplane" and the screenplay for the 1978 movie "Agatha," which starred Dustin Hoffman and Vanessa Redgrave.

After she'd had a brief incandescent run in the theater and done some TV movies, Meryl Streep got her first film role: two brief scenes in Julia, starring Vanessa Redgrave and Jane Fonda. Her second was The Deer Hunter, in which she played a war bride and fresh-faced beauty - so green, in fact, that some thought they had merely found a woman who resembled the character and cast her. The film generated the first of her 14 Oscar nominations. Now 30 years later, Streep's oldest daughter, Mamie Gummer, after only two professional plays, has her first role of consequence in a film starring Vanessa Redgrave (Evening)

Joining "A Room With a View" and "Enchanted April" in the sub-sub-genre of "Middle-class Brits on Vacation in Italy," "A Month By the Lake" offers some sedate but undeniable pleasures: The triumph of a shrewd, decent and practical woman, the thawing of a pompous prig, and the comeuppance of an American upstart. Throw in Lake Como's gorgeous scenery and you've got just the soothing thing for the people who instinctively know they must stay far, far away from "To Die For."It's 1937 and this time Miss Bentley has come to the lake alone.

With a cast that seems to include every A-list dramatic actress in Hollywood, Evening qualifies as a major motion picture event on pedigree alone. Still, all the star power in the world can't gloss over a plot that's not nearly as poignant as it thinks it is, or a melodramatic narrative that comes across as much ado about not very much at all. For Evening is an odd mix, a film that dwells on one woman's past romantic missteps while simultaneously stressing...

In Henry Jaglom's "Deja Vu," love is more than a sense of familiarity. It's pure, electric destiny.The film is dreamy and delicious in ways romantic movies rarely are, as it tells the story of a man and a woman, each deeply involved in a relationship, who find themselves inexplicably and mystically drawn to each other.Victoria Hoyt, who was so appealing and mercurial as the Hollywood actress in husband Jaglom's "Last Summer in the Hamptons," plays Dana, who meets a sad, radiant older woman on a business trip to Israel.

Lovely and ruminative, the film version of "Mrs. Dalloway" is like a sweetly melancholic song. But the tune does not pierce the heart as it should.Adapted by Eileen Atkins from the Virginia Woolf novel, Marleen Gorris' film stars a radiant Vanessa Redgrave as the elder Mrs. Dalloway. Delicate, good-natured and most interested in the happiness of those around her, she prepares for a party that conveniently (for the narrative, at least) brings together the people she knew in her youth.As she strolls through pretty 1923 London and buys flowers, Mrs. Dalloway thinks back on the time when, as a young woman (played by Natascha McElhone)

On The Weekend Watch:THE MEMORIES LINGER ON -- Elvis Presley may have died in 1977 (or maybe not, depending on your conspiracy leanings), but this week's nightly Elvis salute on Channel 54 is showing his memory is certainly alive and well. The station says Monday's screening of Presley's 1968 "Comeback Special" generated more than a 50 percent increase in the usual ratings. Still to come are "Aloha From Hawaii," at 8 tonight, an internationally telecast special which may have been seen by a billion people in 1973, and Friday's film, "Fun In Acapulco," from 1963.
