NEW YORK, NY: Don’t let all the recession-obsessed soothsayers fool you. People are still lining up to see a good show. At around midnight of the evening before tickets went on sale at the Minskoff Theatre for Bette Midler’s Clams on the Half Shell Revue, the line began to form for what turned out to be the largest single day ticket sale in Broadway history. The previous record had been set more than a year ago by Bette Midler at the Palace Theatre. Red Skelton said it when he was told that over 10,000 people had shown up at movie mogul Harry Cohen’s funeral: “Give the people something they want to see and they’ll come out for it.”At a time when people were selling apples on the street corners in Greenwich Village for $1.50 each, I’m convinced now that we do indeed need it now.

BetteBack April 1, 1974: The Divine Mr. J

Phoenix Arizona Republic

The_Devine_Mr

For Bette Midler fans, don’t get too excited when you see the hype for a new movie, “The Divine Mr. J.”

The publicity people would have us believe it’s a new movie starring the Divine Miss M as the Virgin Mary in a religious Satire. Truth of the matter is the film was made three years ago in Detroit and Bette’s part is a bit .,. .

BetteBack April 11, 1973: Bette Midler Flounces And Minces

Redlands Daily Facts
April 11, 1973

CC011

BERKELEY, Calif. — (NEA) — She flounces and minces, coos and shrieks.

She is ludicrous and appealingly pathetic. She is a performer, is Bette Mi^er. That’s Bette as in “bet”- just one syllable.

She’s a killer. She brings out the queens in drag wbo first started flocking around her at the Continentel Baths in the Ansonia Hotel, mid Manhattan, sitting around in their steaming towels. Then the straights started coming, too, fully togged. Read More

Brownsville Herald

During ‘71 72 and now 73, female stars poured out with such goodies as Carole King, Carly Simon and Melanie. But there is a new girl now making an old style but a fresh sound.

Bette Midler excites the female rock scene in every way she can.

Her recent release. “ The Divine Miss M ’ includes tunes that make other female stars look dull. She can move a slow song with the same excitement as a fast song and vice versa, but will get a different point across in every note she sings. Read More

celebrated in places like Las Vegas.”

Bette Midler Compares Blake Shelton To John Wayne

Boston Globe
Bette Midler Compares Blake Shelton To John Wayne
OCTOBER 29, 2016

30quote1

Bette Midler certainly seems to be enjoying her first season as a judge on ‘The Voice‘.

She told Celebuzz that she was unsure about taking the job at first, but that a friend convinced her by telling her to “show them what it means to be a performer”.

She also really seems to like Blake Shelton. “Blake is a hoot!” said the Hocus Pocus star, “He is on the small screen, but I personally think—if I were his agent—I would get him on a big screen as quick as possible… He’s so photogenic, like a John Wayne Type.” Read More
