It’s best not to be too pompous about yourself.

It’s best not to be too pompous about yourself. It’s better not to need a limousine for your head. Although people think I’m just ‘divine,’ I have my share of worries. I worry about growing old and losing my shape, my looks, my hair. As an entertainer, that’s my stock and trade. Oh, and I also worry that I don’t dance as well as Michael Jackson. – Bette Midler

Bette Midler on “Misery”

[Bette Midler on “Misery”] I turned that down because I didn’t want to saw off someone’s foot, even though the role won an Oscar [for Kathy Bates]. It was stupid to say no to those pictures. And while I was unsure about doing this play [on Broadway as Sue Mengers], I felt it was time for me to say yes. – Bette Midler

By golly, Miss Dolly…say it isn’t so.  For the complete version of Bette Midler‘s vocal performance of her opening number, “I Put My Hand In,” you have to see Hello, Dolly! live at the Shubert Theatre.  The song quickly introduces Dolly Levi as the meddlesome matchmaker who gets the job done, and lucky ticket holders get to hear the entire song with all of composer Jerry Herman’s verses.  However, for owners of the cast CD, it’s another story.  That’s because the final verse of the song has been omitted for the recording.  On the CD, the song ends with this verse: Read More
