In Shining Through, the World War II saga of an American stenographer- turned-spy, Our Heroine defeats the Germans through her command of their language and cuisine. If you like your strudel larded with schmaltz, this is the movie for you. Had Queens-born Linda Voss, the heroine of Susan Isaacs' page-turner, seen the film version she would have sneered, "It shoulda been a mini-series. " Only a mini-series could showcase the requisite number of USO dances, rayon blouses and seamed stockings Our Heroine rips through before achieving her goal.

The toxins coursing through Melanie Griffith's bloodstream are throwing one heck of a bon voyage party. "Yesterday, she almost fainted," a concerned publicist says of the star, who is about to exit an upstairs suite at the Four Seasons to discuss her life, her new movie, Shining Through, and the joys and mysteries of brown rice. "But she's feeling better today. " And indeed she is. Or at least she looks it. She glides into the room in dashing black and white, her va quickly followed by her voom, her blond hair, blue eyes and gleaming skin seeming to radiate, just like the peroxided screen goddesses - Harlow, Monroe, Holliday - who came before her. "Melanie is a movie star," Shining Through director David Seltzer explains, "because she is positively luminous on screen.

Today, class, we have four newly released videos that cover the range of The Inquirer's movie-rating system. At the top of the list is an excellent comedy about the world of big business. Next comes a good comedy about a gang of mental patients on the loose in New York. Then we have a baseball comedy that's only fair. And last, there's a lackluster comedy about a hypochondriac that's just plain poor. Were you taking notes? There may be a pop quiz. WORKING GIRL (1988) (CBS/Fox) $89.98.

A LI'L EXTRA MUSCLE It would be, at the very least, tacky to suggest that all this was timed to take the spotlight off aunt Jackie, but we are intrigued by the early, early, early word that Maria Shriver is pregnant. The wags are saying that Maria, now a rising star at NBC, and hubby Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Kennedy family's token Republican, are due to have their first child in early 1990. Word is that the couple are thrilled. ALL THAT GLITTERS . . . Speaking of celebrity families in the making, friends of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson now say that the two want to tie the knot at sea, on nothing less decadent than the Donald Trump yacht with the gold-plated everything.

THANK GOODNESS. Had another day gone by without major news from the Kardashians (better to offset any news from Caitlyn Jenner ), we all might have withered like the untended Gerberdaisies that once graced Temp Tatt's stoop. (Sorry, flowers.)
