SHOW Tue. 3:45 p.m. "Transformers" ››› Two races of robots wage war on Earth. TNT Tue. 8 p.m., Wed. 5 p.m. "Maps to the Stars" (2014): Fisher loosely played a version of herself in director David Cronenberg's seriocomic tale of a Hollywood family at very different stages in their lives. "Soapdish" (1991): The tart line delivery by Fisher earned ample laughs as she played one of the makers of a television serial with lots going on behind the scenes. "When Harry Met Sally ... " (1989): Fisher's wisecracking nature served her well as the friend who advises Sally (Meg Ryan) on – or against – romance. "The 'Burbs" (1989): Just with her facial expressions, Fisher said a lot as Tom Hanks' wife in this dark comedy about the couple's dealings with strange new neighbors. "Hannah and Her Sisters" (1986): In Woody Allen's Oscar-winning saga of a family and its connections, Fisher made her mark as Dianne Wiest's fellow-caterer friend in a large and great cast. "Under the Rainbow" (1981): An amusing Fisher played the ultimately exasperated supervisor of those playing Munchkins in the screen classic "The Wizard of Oz." "The Blues Brothers" (1980): Fisher had what turned out to be a pivotal role as a "Mystery Woman" in this sprawling comedy based on John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd's "Saturday Night Live" act. "Star Wars: Chapter V – The Empire Strikes Back" (1980): The emotional depth added to the saga by this edition, and reflected to no small degree by Fisher's Leia, qualifies this to be named here along with the first film in the franchise. "Star Wars: Chapter IV – A New Hope" (1977): Well, of course. Any movie that makes a performer iconic is a "must" for this sort of list, and this sci-fi epic set in "a galaxy far, far away" surely did that for Fisher as Princess Leia. "Shampoo" (1975): A wonderfully precocious Fisher – who displayed her edginess even then – set herself up to be one of a womanizing hair stylist's (Warren Beatty) youngest conquests.
