'FIRE' THIS TIME

This may not have been what the Founding Fathers had in mind: Over the recent Presidents' Day weekend, Clint Eastwood's assassination thriller was as hard to find on shelves as a biopic on James Garfield. That's because In the Line of Fire, in its second week in stores, has become the nation's top video rental, replacing incumbent Rookie of the Year. At the other end of the top 10, The Secret Garden makes a bold-and unlikely- debut. The film, which grossed more than $31 million in theaters-and at $24.96 has been priced for buyers rather than renters-has yet to hit the sales top 10, unusual for a new G-rated release.
