BetteBack June 30, 1975: People Magazine Interview Regarding “Clams”

People Magazine
Bette Midler Returns In Tacky Triumph
June 30, 1975
By Patricia Burstein

In a blue-and-white smock with red sandals coordinating her Bicentennial look, the star shimmied along New York’s 42nd Street on a recent afternoon. Some of the drifters and drunks recognized and swooped down on her, and she fluttered her fingers in self-­defense. She slunk past a peep show window, then nipped into an alley. A second later her bright red head popped out – the hand clutching the throat is her own, in the classic strangulation bit of vaudeville. “I wouldn’t say I invented tack,” Bette Midler observed, nasally, “but I definitely brought it to its present high popularity.” Though meant as a self-effacing remark, it is true. Her virtual one-woman Broadway show this season has been the biggest hit by a solo artist since she herself last brightened the Great White Way in 1973. Read More

BetteBack February 6, 1975: Critics Get A Preview Of The Cher Special

San Mateo Times
February 6, 1975

There is no question that when Sonny Bono started his “Sonny Comedy Hour” he missed Cher.

The absence of Cher was one of the real reasons for the show failing to make it through the season.

Not only did Sonny’s show lack writing, it lacked comedy.

Next Wednesday night, Cher will try it on her own. This show, a special designed to kick off her new series, came off much better than did Sonny’s solo venture in television.

It was the presence of Cher that made the old “Sonny and Cher Show” a success. The girl can wear clothes like a high fashion model. Read More

BetteBack January 19, 1975: What Happened After The Cher Special Taping?

Lubbock Avalanche Journal
January 19, 1975

6046f22b68639a49a3d796c589666235

When Cher Bono wrapped up taping her first CBS-TV special, she with her steady, David Geffen (and don’t let anyone tell you differently) took off with the likes of none other than her first show guests, Elton John (In kilts and ruffles and of course, with his famous white framed glasses), Bette Midler in drab, and Richard Chamberlain along with a party of “intimates” and entourage to such a port of entertainment as Studio One in West Hollywood. They all danced together and then caught impressionist Lynn Carter
on stage in the Back Lot. What made it amazing was that many of the people crowding the big place didn’t recognize the stars. The put down was when a few did, they were rather sneered at by the Divine Miss M (whom they all apparently adored) and ignored by EJ (Mr. Music Super Star). Happily most were charmed by Chamberlain’s shyness and won over by Cher’s smiles and David’s congeniality. Read More

Bette Midler. At KeyArena, Seattle, last night. ——————————-

“I hear you’re in the market for a new police chief,” declared Bette Midler at KeyArena last night. “Well, look no further: I’m your gal.”

Sorry, Bette – you’re a lot better at gleefully disturbing the peace than you would be enforcing it. Read More

Idina Menzel Talks ‘Daunting’ ‘Beaches’ Remake, Bette Midler and Wedding Planning (Video, too)

As she prepares for audiences to see her rendition of Bette Midler’s “Wind Beneath My Wings” in Lifetime’s upcoming Beaches remake, Idina Menzel is sharing her memories of the iconic hit.
