Ashley Judd has the face that launched a thousand conventional women-in-jeopardy movies -- not just her own, which usually depend on Judd's push and drive for their ratcheting momentum, but the rip-offs on TV, often on the Lifetime Channel. The genre as we now know it belongs to her; she and her writers and directors propelled it in liberating directions. A Judd suspense film like Double Jeopardy (1999), in which a foul husband sets up his wife for a fake murder, doesn't just reverse the moral and sexual dynamics of hard-shelled Hollywood melodramas about a femme fatale and a male sucker (Double Indemnity is the towering prototype)

What's a mid-summer downpour when you've got people to meet, networking to do? Even a weather-related downtown traffic jam couldn't keep some 45 folks away from Harborview's South Harbor Tavern. They came for "Networking Happy Hour: The Sequel" -- a production of Women in Film and Video of Maryland, a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to promoting women in the film, video and related industries. Those who braved the soggy streets were rewarded with good food, good company and good chances of meeting people in Maryland's film and video industry.

That wasn't Harrison Ford at the Key Bridge Monday night, but it was the next best thing: the tail-end of a plane sticking out of the Patapsco was put there in the service of "Random Hearts," a political thriller he's currently filming in the Washington, D.C., area. Director Sydney Pollack used the bridge to film an early sequence in the movie, in which an airplane crash sets off a series of events. The project will visit a cabin in Prince George's or Howard County for a week later on in the schedule.

Fullwood Foundation Cheery shades of red were everywhere at the "15th Annual Fullwood Foundation Benefit and Recognition Breakfast." The Martin's West ballroom was decked out in red, black and white -- as were the more than 40 people being honored for their community service. They each wore a dazzling medal around their necks with ribbons in the same three colors. Fullwood Foundation volunteers, who helped the 1,800 guests find their seats, were dressed in crimson. Obviously, many of the guests knew red, in particular, was the color of the hour.

You won't catch any of the current nominees, but dozens of past Academy Award winners will be spotlighted on TCM this month, as the cable channel stages its annual celebration of all things Oscar. The festival, called "31 Days of Oscar," runs the entire month, filling TCM's schedule with Oscar-winning and Oscar-nominated movies. And while it includes all the big winners - "Gone With the Wind," "Casablanca" and "Ben-Hur" - the real fun comes from ferreting out lesser-known gems, films that rarely turn up on must-see lists and aren't shown nearly as frequently as the big guns.
