(On how difficult it is to get good movie material) “Two words: Im Possible. Very, very hard. A struggle of life and death. A bore.

(On how difficult it is to get good movie material) “Two words: Im Possible. Very, very hard. A struggle of life and death. A bore. Especially soul destroying. Wearying beyond belief. I mean, we leave no stone unturned. And yet even when you come up with something you believe in, it’s so hard to convince people that it’s worthwhile, that it’s worth making. Even though they think, hey, she’s good, she’s got a string of hits behind her, she knows what she’s doing– they don’t have any faith, they don’t want to take that chance.” (1991, Movieline) – Bette Midler Read More

(On what she does with her money) “Not a goddamn thing. I don’t do anything with it. I give a lot of it away. I like charity. I like gardens. And travel. My husband says my life is wasted on me. He said no one should have as much good fortune as me and not have any idea what to do with it. I don’t pay any attention to it.” (1991, Movieline) – Bette Midler

(On being a director) “To tell you the truth, I’m no dummy. Directing is just a bitch. And it’s years out of your life.

(On being a director) “To tell you the truth, I’m no dummy. Directing is just a bitch. And it’s years out of your life. And you are in a dark editing room a lot of it. You’d better like that person you are in there with because you’re there, you’re locked. It’s a lot like making records. Sometimes it gets so claustrophobic in those little dark rooms, it’s hard. And I don’t want to do that much work. I don’t want to work that hard for no money. I would rather work a little and make a lot of money than work like a dog and make nothing.” (1991, Movieline) – Bette Midler Read More

(On Sally Field) “She’s very smart. She’s doing exactly what she wants to do.

(On Sally Field) “She’s very smart. She’s doing exactly what she wants to do. It took her a minute to figure out how the business has changed, because it changed right out from under her, when nobody was looking. So that’s what we’re all in for. You can either jump in feet first and go to work or you can stand on the sidelines. Things have changed.” (1991, Movieline) – Bette Midler

BetteBack December 18, 1973: Bette Midler At The Palace

Mattoon Journal Gazette
December 18, 1973

Bette+Midler+BetteDeltaDawn_ThePalace

Bette Midler’ll haul down about $300,000 for three weeks of doing her “trash with flash ’ act at the Palace Theater.

Las Vegas salaries have come to New York. That’s $100,000 a week. Six shows a week. $26,000 a show. Jimmy Nederlander, the personable proprietor of the Palace, said as we watched the unbelievable opening night lobby scene, “Bette Midler is the biggest grosser in the history of the Palace.”

“I was here in ’67 when Judy Garland came in and I think this is bigger,” I agreed. Read More

BetteBack September 12, 1973: Bette Midler on a New Tack

September 12, 1973

Pardon me, I know you’re probably in a rush this morning, but if you have a minute or two free, I could use some help with a couple of problems. They both concern Bette Midler and her new show at the Universal Amphitheater.

You see, I’m supposed to write about rock music and I keep finding these non-rock performers with such impact and power that I find myself occupied a lot with them these days. First, there was Harry Belafonte and then Liza Minnelli and now Bette Midler. I mean, what are my pals going to think? Read More

BetteBack September 13, 1972: Bette Midler’s Star Rises Fast

Oakland Tribune
September 13, 1972

Bette - The Divine Miss M

Bette Midler may be the fastest-rising star to emerge this year. The 26-year-old former Hawaiian has in the past few months come from complete obscurity to considerable fame, all through the most incredible of circumstances.

Three years ago Bette Midler came to New York from Honolulu, hoping to become an actress. She nailed down a few off-Broadway roles and played on Broadway in “Fiddier On The Roof.” Then, after listening to Aretha Franklin a lot, she decided to try singing. She put together an act mixing equal parts of old (1940’s, 1950’s and early 1960’s) songs, contemporary ballads and ribald comedy. Read More
