It's actually not overly difficult to get equivalent functionality without having to flip to dashboard.

Open up Script Editor (in /Applications/Applescript - may require dev tools), create a new script with the following command:

tell application "QuickTime Player" to present movie 1 scale screen

Save as FullScreenQuickTime.scpt (or whatever name you like) in ~/Library/Scripts.

Open Applescript Utility (again in /Applications/Applescript), check the box "Show Script Menu in menu bar".

Launch your Quicktime movie. From the new menu bar script menu, select your script, and the movie will resize to full screen, without having to go to Dashboard.

This also works on Panther (and probably Jaguar)..
