Filming of Jeff Bridges' movie The Contender, about a U.S. President (Bridges) who nominates a female Vice President (Joan Allen) after the elected veep dies in office, hit an unexpected glitch recently. While shooting a White House ballroom scene in a Richmond, Va., country club, writer-director Rod Lurie noticed what could have been a major gaffe: a large oil portrait of Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy, hanging prominently on the wall.

"I'm reassessing the whole thing," she says, "[deciding] if I even want to stay in that end of the business."
