Remember Gordon John Sinclair, the gangly, ginger-haired Scottish kid who was such a winner in "Gregory's Girl"? Well, he's back, now grown up and billing himself John Gordon-Sinclair in "The Girl in the Picture" (opening Friday at the Westside Pavilion). His hair's a little darker, he's filled out a bit and his new movie is even slighter than the earlier one, impossible as that would seem (it's not a sequel, but easily could be).

After the North American premiere of "Gregory's Two Girls" here last month, Bill Forsyth, the film's director, looked both relieved and concerned. The audience laughed in all the right places, but was that enough to satisfy distributors? In an interview several days after that screening, the film's future remained uncertain in the U.S., but Forsyth seemed to feel a whole lot better.

Stubbing out cigarettes and discarding paper coffee cups, the Vikings are on their way back to Valhalla. Lunch was over at the studio where "Eric the Viking" had been shooting. Now a dozen hairy hulks in furs, leggings, and horned helmets unsmilingly proceed to "C" stage, while the onlooking prop men and camera crew begin a litany of wisecracks: "There's been a lot of back-stabbing on this picture, hasn't there?" "Is that the only way you can carry your weapons?" This isn't sarcasm.

Two acclaimed movies of 1986, "My Beautiful Laundrette" and "Mona Lisa," head the list of contemporary British films to be screened in the UC Irvine Film Society's winter series beginning this week. Ross Goo, a senior at UCI and one of four directors of the university's film society, said one reason for focusing on recent British cinema is that the films selected have received little or no exposure in Orange County.

What has become a screen tradition will continue in the summer of '86. Aside from a few serious-themed titles (like "Heartburn"), the emphasis will be on high-concept popcorn pictures. That means action ("Cobra," "Raw Deal"), sci-fi and horror ("The Fly"), comedy ("Legal Eagles"), teen tales ("Ferris Bueller's Day Off") and teen idols (like Prince in "Under the Cherry Moon"). There're more than 125 films scheduled. A compilation by Pat H. Broeske.
