Q: What’s this about Bette Midler making her film debut as the Virgin Mary?

A: lt’s a three-year old, jazzed-up home-movie spoof titled “The Divine Mr. J” that emerged from the can only when the Divine Miss M emerged from obscurity. “We turned down a Mike Nichols film, for Heaven’s sake,” says her manager. “Now this piece of (vulgarity deleted) comes out.”

Remembering Sue Mengers: Everybody Came to Sue’s

Those who remember New York in the 1970s, as I do, look back on a city that had hit a very rough patch—decaying, bankrupt, and crime-ridden. But fun. Looking at real-estate prices back then, from today’s perspective, is like a trip through the Looking-Glass. Indeed, for a period of several months in 1978 and 1979 the most valuable pieces of real estate in all of Manhattan may well have been spots at the front of the line for “Treasures of Tutankhamun,” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Some eight million people visited the Tut exhibition—not only a mass of humanity greater than the population of New York at the time, but more people than Tut ruled when he was king. It was the beginning of the art-museum blockbuster show, and if you were around at the time, you know just how much of an extravaganza it was. David Kamp’s remarkable piece on the exhibition and the hoopla that it caused, “King of New York,” starting on page 158, gives us back that moment—what he rightly calls “one of the most all-encompassing cultural phenomena of the second half of the 20th century.” Read More
