Bette Midler On Making The Rose

Bette Midler On Making The Rose: “There are things I could have done better in the film, but it is what it is. I used to be terribly dissatisfied with my records and hate my producers. I’m determined not to do this with films. I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. I know what I’m feeling now is fleeting. I know bad times are going to come and pass. And I know that happiness comes again, too. Right at this minute, I’m happy and satisfied.” (The Milwaukee Journal Dec 2, 1979) – Bette Midler Read More

What Bette Midler Attributes to The Appeal Of Her Low Rent Humor

What Bette Midler Attributes to The Appeal Of Her Low Rent Humor: “Just youthful high spirits. my dear! Lewd can be hysterical if it’s not serious. If it’s serious, it’s not funny. It’s the most frightening, threatening thing in the world. But when it has the overtones of parody, then it’s quite jolly. That’s what I do. I can be gross. But people know it’s like a little girl who’s got her mouth wrapped around a whole lot of words that she doesn’t really know what they mean. Some people wish I were worse.” (The Milwaukee Journal Dec 2, 1979) – Bette Midler Read More

Bette Midler On Her Lewdness In Her Act And In The Rose

Bette Midler On Her Lewdness In Her Act And In The Rose: “I’m much lewder in my real act than I am in the film. I had to change a lot of my physical style for the film. I’m a mincer. I wear very high heels. I’m known for skittering and pigeon-toeing my way across the stage very fast. I wanted the things I do while I sing in the film to be more violent of nature. My girlfriend, Toni Basil, a great rock n’ roll dancer who knows all the microphone moves and pop dances, spent time working with me on the moves for the movie.” (The Milwaukee Journal Dec 2, 1979) – Bette Midler Read More
