That should be
grep "\bjudea" /scripts/movies/brian/* | grep "\bfront\b"
The cat is superfluous and the \b grep token should be \\b out of a
quote or \b inside one.

I'd say the glob wouldn't be the job of the Python script, since that
would be the job of the shell. ("Windows, you say? What's that?")
