For Nancy, the scene is only make-believe, a few moments of a film titled "Judgment," in which she portrays a troubled teen-ager about to end a life of drugs, prostitution and gang membership.

My first thought was of a rush to register treatments with titles like "Storm Over Baghdad" or "Desert Warriors." But a spokeswoman for the guild said that so far as she knew it was normal traffic and she was unaware of any such specific rush. The Motion Picture Assn.
