VARIETY being the spice of life, there's some hot movie viewing available today. From Basil Rathbone playing Sherlock Holmes, through an over the top look at the excesses of the 60s and a mobster comedy, to Fellini's-eye view of Rome. Boredom is unlikely to be a problem - though sometimes quality is. That does not, however, apply to the 1946 classic Dressed to Kill (STAR Plus 2.30pm, Original Running Time 72 mins), not to be mixed up with the 1980 film of the same name which shamelessly ripped off Psycho. This lively black and white thriller marked Basil Rathbone's last appearance as super sleuth Holmes, supported by Nigel Bruce as baffled sidekick Doctor Watson. They're on the trail of three music boxes made in prison which hold the key to the whereabouts of stolen banknote plates. NEXT up is The Doors (World 9.30pm, ORT 135 mins), Oliver Stone's ode to Jim Morrison's rise to fame amid the excesses of the rock/drugs scene of the late 60s. Apparently Stone's recreation of the sights and sounds of the time is uncanny - which is amazing since for most of that period he was in 'Nam, wasn't he? Val Kilmer (Top Secret) is Morrison, and Meg Ryan (Top Gun) his girlfriend. The film's main failing is it's too long - watching hippies get zonked can be tedious. Perhaps you had to be there. For a shorter version, try Rockumentary: The Doors (MTV 8pm). ON its release in 1990, My Blue Heaven (Pearl 9.45pm, ORT 95 mins) was given an decidedly lukewarm reception. Unjustifiably so - it's lightweight yes, but it's also entertaining and leaves its audience dancing . . . literally. Steve Martin (Roxanne) is not entirely convincing as an Italian hood from NY, who moves to the town of Fryburg under the witness protection programme. But Rick Moranis (Honey I Shrunk the Kids), as the hapless FBI man responsible for delivering Martin, and Joan Cusack (Working Girl) playing the town's inflexible assistant DA, are faultless. ROME has never looked so enticing nor so depressing as in the highly stylised paen to the Eternal City, Fellini's Roma (Pearl 12.05, ORT 128 mins). Director Federico Fellini, who won a special achievement award at last week's Oscars, takes viewers on a tour of the Rome of his infancy, his youth and his adult life. The film veers between extravagant sentimentality and grotesque parody. It's also alternately very funny - witness the clerical fashion show - and tedious, but Fellini's talent for pulling off images of stunning visual impact is never in doubt. FOR something completely different, fans of Andrew Lloyd-Webber's songs - and we know you're out there - may like to hear Elaine Paige (the original star of his West End musical Evita) singing them live (STAR Plus 7pm). The line-up includes Don't Cry for Me Argentina and I Know Him So Well.
