LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Liar, Liar” beat the Val Kilmer thriller “The Saint” at the weekend box office and trounced other star vehicles on its way to breaking the $100 million mark, according to industry estimates Sunday.

The Jim Carrey comedy had $18.5 million in ticket sales in its third week, while “The Saint” opened with about $16.2 million. That film, starring Kilmer as a world-class thief trying to rescue scientist Elisabeth Shue, got mixed reviews but was heavily hyped. Read More

BetteBack January 2, 1974: “Bette Midler” Review – It’s A Gas!

Lincoln Evening Journal
January 2, 1974

9-5-2012 6-59-46 PM

The album Bette Midler (Atlantic SD-7270) is out of another era. And it’s a gas.

She’s the vamp of the 70’s. but brings back the sound and feel of the music of the 30’s.

The album has a socko impact with a sleepy acquiescence that only Miss Midler can provide.

Her style combines a smooth flowing ease and lackadaisical feel, if that’s possible.

And then she turns around and gives a soulful black interpretation to “Higher and Higher.” She does a fine job on an old Kurt Weill torch tune entitled “Surabaya Johnny.” Read More

BetteBack December 16, 1973: Bette’s Second Album A Danger Sign?

Pacific Stars And Stripes
By Robert Hilburn
December 16, 1973

9-5-2012 6-57-53 PM

The first time I heard Bette Midler on record I didn’t really care for her. She sounded a bit pretentious, a trifle over-baked and more than a little false. But then I saw her one night on Johnny Carson‘s show and it changed my whole opinion of her.

On that show, she wore a wonderfully tacky outfit, went through some horrendous choreography and sang “Chattanooga Choo Choo” with such enthusiasm that no one would be heartless enough to tell her the whole act was 30 years out of date. Read More

BetteBack December 14, 1973: Bette Midler: Just What The Doctor Ordered

Daily Review
December 14, 1973

ZZZ031512-PP

BETTE MIDLER – By Bette Midler on Atlantic.

Bette’s first album was a once-in-a-lifetime shot where she brought back some oldies as only she could. Her recent effort is just as good, with a little more background than before, which is just what the Divine Miss M needed to keep her!940’s style up.

The album was produced excellently by Arif Mardin and Barry Manilow. Some of the tunes on the record are “Skylark,” “Drinking Again.”
In The Mood” and “Uptown—Da Doo Run Run.” Read More
