Valentine's Day was fast approaching, and I couldn't think of what to get for a special someone in my life. But lucky me, I opened The Times and saw a story about a Hancock Park actress who teaches a women's self-help course that sounded interesting. The class was about how to locate your inner strength while stripping on a dance pole, either for personal enrichment or for the man in your life. "Beautiful!" the instructor shouts as women pretend they're stripping for their husbands.

What could possibly persuade a commitment-phobic film actress to wed herself to a regular TV series? For Sheila Kelley, it was the chance to explore a "cerebrally challenging" role--a role too juicy to pass up. "I wasn't going to commit at all, but this character is so incredibly seductive, she seduces me as well as anybody else," she says. Kelley is describing Gwen Taylor, who came to "L.A. Law" last year as secretary to divorce attorney Arnie Becker.

Maybe the third time Scott Bakula plays an L.A. psychiatrist will be the charm. He got knocked off early on in "Color of Money," and now in "A Passion to Kill," a relentlessly routine psychological murder mystery, he's done in by a lackluster script. Bakula's Dr. David Lawson receives a double whammy when he meets the beautiful, regal Diana (Chelsea Field), the bride of his best friend Jerry Chamberlain (John Getz).

It's hard to say which is more terrifying, the images we conjure in our minds while reading a scary book or the ones provided for us if the book is made into a movie.

The scene: Men grouped around a dying mother-to-be. "You've got to help her, doctor," says one to another. "I'm a PhD," he replies. First man, a moment later: "I think she's going into labor, doctor!" The PhD: "I need some hot water! I need some towels!" Cut to beaming PhD holding a swaddled infant: "It's a girl!" Anthropologist Hugo Archibald's trip to Africa has just culminated in the delivery of a chimpanzee baby, about to become a member of his family in the U.S.

"Dancing at the Blue Iguana" goes backstage at one of those flashy strip clubs that dot the arid industrial neighborhoods of the San Fernando Valley to reveal as much of the hearts and souls of the strippers as they do of their bodies. The film was developed by Michael Radford, the versatile director of "Il Postino," from a five-month period of workshops with the film's actors, who created the characters they were to play.

The pairing of director Bill Forsyth and John Sayles, this time as a screenwriter, to create the delightful "Breaking In" (opening Friday at selected theaters) seems so felicitous you wonder that it didn't happen sooner. These are both men who know when to leave well-enough alone and when the smallest grace note will set a scene tingling.

If ever anyone was born under a bad sign, effervescent accountant Eugene Proctor is that man. Hit by lightning twice (once inside a movie theater), Proctor is the kind of guy who gets his checked luggage mangled before his plane even takes off. If he rides in an elevator with a pregnant woman, the apparatus is sure to get stuck and the woman destined to go into labor. Immediately. He is an accident that never has to wait very long to happen.
