Susannah



   Susannah posted on Movies & Reviews  Interesting factoid: American made-for-tv movies are often released as theatrical movies in the foreign market. The Lizzie Borden movie starring Fritz Weaver and Elizabeth Montgomery was--with the addition of a few nude scenes--shown in European theaters.

   StormCnter  That's an excellent marketing tool. A made for television movie is just as well done as most of the cinema offerings.

   MeiDei  Just the opposite with The White Queen & I think The Borgias - they added explicit sex scenes for the American audience only. As if we don't have vivid imaginations, we have to have it played out for us. Insulting, I think and really unnecessary when doing historical presentations.

   Susannah posted on Movies & Reviews  What young actress, while playing opposite Richard Burton in which movie, said of Elizabeth Taylor (who was proving a bit of a disruptive presence on the set ), "I'm going to give that b#&ch an acting lesson she'll never forget."

   MeiDei  Not Night of the Iguana - or is it? It's the only one I remember reading about la Taylor being "disruptive". Don'[t recall the young actress - just Ava.

   Susannah posted on Movies & Reviews  I'm watching "Titanic" on dvd. No, not the one with Kate Winslet. This was a 2012 British mini-series written by Julian Fellowes of "Gosford Park" and "Downton Abbey" fame. I hadn't known it existed till yesterday. So far, so good.

   StormCnter  Are you binge-watching? That's what they call it when we watch several episodes of a series at one sitting. I've done it with "Downton Abbey" and also with "The Grand".

   Susannah  I'm dragging this one out, because I want it to last--and also because Fellowes and the actors did a fine job of portraying the fear and the panic of the passengers as they're trying to find places on the lifeboats, and it's disturbing. In a good way, though.

   Susannah posted on Suggested Reading  For those of you who are fans of Hilary Mantel, author of Wolf Hall, she has a brand-new collection of short stories out. It's called "The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher," though I'm under the impression the only reference in the entire book to Thatcher is tangential.

I've never read anything by Mantel, so I can't offer a personal recommendation here.

   StormCnter  I've read two of her books and they were good ones. I've always been interested in Tudor England and particularly enjoyed "Wolf Hall".

   Susannah  Okay...it was Nancy Dussault, a major singer who'd starred in major musicals. I was startled when she moved to television, because she still had a lot of voice left in her. The show was "Too Close for Comfort," and it ended its run when Ted Knight died in 1986.

   Susannah  Here's an interesting tidbit. The phrase "days of wine and roses" comes from a poem by Ernest Dowson, who, ironically, died of alcoholism at age 32. He wrote yet another poem that included the phrase "gone with the wind," which Margaret Mitchel decided would be perfect for her book.

   Susannah posted on Suggested Reading  I'm about halfway through "Jackie as Editor: The Literary Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis," by Greg Lawrence. It's about the only part of her life that was never put under a microscope: her editorial jobs at Viking and Doubleday. It's pretty interesting, with some good anecdotes about various authors. And it provides a depressingly accurate picture of what publishing has become today.
