Addams Family, Illustrattiom

Long before comic book adaptations were all the rage, Hollywood looked to the pages of daily newspapers for ideas. Half a century ago, comic strips like Blondie and Dennis the Menace became sitcoms. Peanuts kicked off a string of iconic animated Charlie Brown specials. A Saturday Evening Post strip called Hazel became a TV hit NBC.

Of course, one of the greatest adaptations of a comic strip from the 1960s was The Addams Family, a gothic comedy inspired by one-panel cartoons in The New Yorker by Charles Addams. Premiering on small screens in 1964, the Addams Family have never really gone away. Cartoons followed in the 1970s. A Halloween reunion came later that decade. A trilogy of films revived the characters for a new generation in the 1990s. There have been Broadway shows, video games and an incredible pinball game based on the Addams. Read More

This Is So Why I Love Bitchy Queen Forums! Call Me A Homophobe! I Ain’t Scared Of No ‘MO’ (Mister D Is Saying This)

From Deadhorseinterchange.net
July 19, 2018

Mister D: Hey! There’s a reason we have stereotypes and cliches, because they are so abundantly around us. I love it. It makes the world a colorful place. When you try to quash these characteristics, you really don’t know what you’re going to create. In the case of gays, it turned out to be guys with great bods who still acted like girls. LOL I didn’t say that. I never said that. Just so this doesn’t get attributed to Ms. Midler, this is Don who has nothing to do with Miss Midler. So if you’re going to attack, attack me! Read More

On This Day In History: The Fabulous Bette Midler Show Premiered On The Fledgling HBO Cable Channel

Bette Midler, Hospital Bed

The Bette Midler Show is an HBO video special of one of Bette Midler’s tours entitled “The Depression Tour”. The video is of her show at the Cleveland Music Hall during February 1976. The show features many of Bette’s popular songs, such as “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, “Friends”, “In The Mood”, “Hello In There”, and “Lullaby of Broadway” As well as dazzling the audience with her spontaneous wit with her ‘Wonderful Sophie Tucker Jokes’ and her special ‘The Vicki Eydie Show’… ‘Bette set out on another cross-country tour entitled ‘The Depression Tour’, which she hoped would help album sales of her latest album. The show, as with Clams, was very successful, and was turned into an HBO TV special called “The Bette Midler Show.” The tour also spawned the album “Live at Last”, which to this day encompasses every essence of what a live Bette Midler show is like. Bette Midler, accompanied by the staggering harlettes, jokes, sings, and dances.’ (Wikipedia) Read More

God, This Is So Frustating & I Can’t Understand In The Morning LOL – The Triple Crown of Acting. That’s when a performer manages the Emmy, Oscar, and Tony for acting. To date only 24* actors have accomplished this

The Film Experience
List-Mania: Glenda Jackson & Lots of Triple-Crown Acting Trivia

Bette Midler, Barbra Hershey, Beaches, Lounges

Since I’m on record as being annoyed that all anyone cares about is the EGOT it’s time to celebrate our preferred obsession: The Triple Crown of Acting. That’s when a performer manages the Emmy, Oscar, and Tony for acting. To date only 24* actors have accomplished this, with Glenda Jackson being the most recent recipient as of this past Sunday night at the Tony Awards. Triple Crowns have become much more commonplace in the 21st century since actors move much more fluidly through the three mediums than they did in before the turn of the century. TV has totally lost its stigma for movie stars and Broadway is more welcome to very short runs freeing major stars up to continue with their movie and TV careers without as much scheduling trauma.

Video: Bette Midler – Live at The Majestic Theatre (1980) – Divine Madness On Broadway (Complete)

Mister D: This footage is old and rough in some places. Stationary. No Close Ups. But it’s a great artifact. I was lucky enough to see this production on Broadway. Much more electric live than just watching it on film. Bette was everywhere in NY. Even Times Square was playing the trailer of The Rose.

Bette Midler, Divine Madness
