Susannah



   Susannah posted on Movies & Reviews  I finished skimming/plowing through the Diane Keaton memoir. I learned far more than I needed to about bulimia and far less than I needed to about anything remotely interesting.

   Susannah  Storm, you had asked whether she had anything amusing/engaging/noteworthy/whatever to say about Jack Nicholson.

In a word, no. She did say she was in a movie with him. But apparently extended descriptions of compulsive vomiting engaged her interests more.

   StormCnter  Well, I've got Anjelica Huston's book on my shelf. We'll see what SHE has to say about our Jack.

   Susannah posted on Movies & Reviews  If you're looking for a good movie star memoir, avoid at all costs Diane Keaton's "Then Again." Then again, if you're looking for a non-narcotic sleep aid, you might want to invest in it. Talk about boooooorrrriiing.

Here's what she has to say about the making of "The Godfather":
1. She hated her wig.
2. Al Pacino likes to eat standing up.

Here's what she has to say about "Annie Hall":
1. Absolutely nothing, but I might have missed the line where she talked about it.

Here's what she has to say about Woody Allen:
1. He's funny. He gets upset if you accidentally clink your silverware on the plate. They dated for a while.

Here's what she has to say about Warren Beatty:
1. They dated for a while.

Here's what she has to say about her stage debut in "Hair."
1. It was a Broadway musical. Some people took off their clothing and got paid fifty bucks extra. She didn't. Or at least I think she didn't. It's hard to tell.

Most of the book, as far as I can determine, is about the collages her mother made of pictures ripped out of magazines. This does not, I assure you, make for a riveting narrative.

   StormCnter  Thank you! I hadn't intended buying it, but now I'll be sure to save my money. She says nothing about "Annie Hall"? Whate in the world about Diane Keaton would have attracted Jack Nicholson? Maybe there's less to Nicholson than I had thought.
May 3 at 15:42 EST .


   Susannah  I haven't gotten to the part about Nicholson yet, although I might have missed it. If you take out the parts about Keaton's mother's insanely boring scrapbooks, there's only about 40 pages left. If I can plow through it, I'll let you know.

As a side note, I number among my acquaintance a woman who may be the only one on the planet ever to turn down a date with Warren Beatty. Guess why?

   Susannah  She thought he was a dope. Which is ironic; I read somewhere once that he has a lifelong fear of being thought stupid.

   Susannah posted on Movies & Reviews  This redheaded television, movie, and stage actress, born in 1944, has won two Tony awards and one Emmy. Her very unusual first name was given to her by her Air Force colonel father to commemorate the Flying Fortress, and her surname is that of a character in Apocalypse Now/Heart of Darkness.

   Susannah posted on Movies & Reviews  Here's a sign of hope for all of you in eastern New England with nine or more feet of snow: I just saw two bluebirds. Since they're flying in tandem from tree to tree, I assume they're shopping for real estate. They're back early. I guess they wanted to beat the crowd.

   Richdet  Did you know that the students at MIT have a THREE-STORY high mountain on campus, which they are using for skiing and climbing? This Boston Herald article is a few days old, but I will link it here because it is a lot of fun, and as good a remedy to our snow weariness as those bluebirds:

   MeiDei  I saw a pair of squirrels playfully exercising their usual spring time ritual the other day. As for the birds & nest building this will be a cruel year for those that use twigs & other findings. Will put out an assortment of odd sized twine, yarn, some cotton batting & dried Autumn Sedum branches from my Christmas village display. Maybe this year they'll actually use the birdhouses.

   StormCnter  Down here in north central Texas, we have several inches of snow, but the bigger news is 5.000 stranded at D-FW Airport, with 1,000 flights cancelled because of ice. My wonderful Nigerian-born, ever-smiling, mailman hand delivered three days of mail late yesterday. The Star-Telegram never did arrive, but the intrepid Dallas Morning News guy made his careful rounds. My house is at the bottom of a hill and the street in front remains coated with ice. The good news, however, is that the ice will be gone in a couple of days, while those of you buried in mountainous snowbanks aren't going to get them cleared soon. I do understand the greater impact and I worry about you.

   Richdet  Either Phillips Academy or they were all baby-food models as toddlers (as was Bogart ). I will go with Phillips Academy, though I prefer the other one as a solution.

   Susannah posted on Movies & Reviews  "My Own True Love," sung by fifties chanteuse Margaret Whiting, and later by the Duprees in a doo-w*p version, was the theme, under another name, of what very famous movie?

   StormCnter  Off topic, but Margaret Whiting had a younger sister who was in the movies and then in a radio series. I listened to it every Saturday morning. The series was "Junior Miss" and she was Barbara Whiting.

The bad word filter wouldn't let me spell "doo-w*p."

   StormCnter  Dude, I had never heard that song, but I like it, too. Margaret Whiting, to me, is always associated with "It Might as Well be Spring", because she always prefaced it by reminding listeners her father wrote it.

   Safetydude  I won't admit to how many years ago Storm, a friend of mine had an over-night 'all request' radio program and "The Ballad Of All The Sad Young Men" was his theme.
Requests were made by Western Union telegrams.
Remember those?

   Susannah  Didn't care for her politics, but beyond that, she seemed like a nice, down-to-earth person. She continued singing up until a few years ago, and she said, "If I didn't sing 'It's My Party' I'd be an idiot, because that's what people come to hear." She did a very charming bluesy, self-deprecating version of the song in her later years.
