“Life Moves Pretty Fast: The Lessons We Learned From Eighties Movies” by Hadley Freeman, Simon and Schuster, 339 pages, $16 paperback original.

Let’s start with “Steel Magnolias.” What is widely known now as as the Bechdel Movie Test for well-represented women in movies, came from cartoonist Allison Bechdel whose formulation was: A movie “has to have at least two women in it. 2) Who talk to each other. 3) About something besides a man.” U. K. Guardian columnist Freeman formulates the “Magnolia Test” to determine “whether or not a movie is a proper women’s movie: 1) The cast is largely, maybe even solely, female. 2) The female characters talk to each other about a million things other than men and genuinely like each other .3) And the relationship between the women is far more important than any they have with a man. 4) Bonus points if any of the following are in the film: Shirley MacLaine, Dolly Parton, Bette Midler, Olympia Dukakis. Triple for Sally Field.” Read More

BetteBack January 23, 1975: Does Bette Midler’s career appear to be going downhill?

Burlington Daily Times

Does Bette Midler’s career appear to be going downhill?

YES. Bette Midler has been getting poor management. Events like that bad reception at Johnny Carson’s Friar’s Roast need never have happened.

BetteBack January 28, 2000: ‘Great’ Bette for a good time

The Boston Herald
January 28, 2000 | Verniere, James

original

Isn’t She Great.”

Rated R. At Copley Place and suburban theaters.

three stars

A kooky labor of love, “Isn’t She Great” confidently sports no question mark in the title and stars the Divine Miss M as Austin Powers’ favorite writer Jacqueline Susann.

Susann, as some may remember if this film is to have any shelf life at all, was the failed actress-turned-best-selling author of the shag-a-licious novels “The Valley of the Dolls,” “The Love Machine” and “Once Is Not Enough.” While she didn’t quite change the face of American publishing with her poodle and Pucci wardrobe and her sex-crazed, pill-popping starlets eager to trade their nubile flesh for movie roles as long as the supply of uppers and downers never ran out, Jacqueline Susann was something else, all right.

Anybody surprised that Bob Hope will be emcee at the Friar Club charity dinner honoring Johnny Carson on October 19. The combination of the King of Emcees saluting the King of Midnight should get the festivities off to a smashing start.

President of the Friars, Buddy Hackett, has the event scheduled for the grand ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Read More

BetteBack January 28, 2000: Isn’t She Great? No. Grating? Yes.

Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)
January 28, 2000 | Gire, Dann

6ae83e3558034e683e1c8f5848fe2f09

Isn’t She Great

Written by Paul Rudnick; based on an article by Michael Korda. Produced by Mike Lobell. Directed by Andrew Bergman. A Universal Pictures release. Rated R (language). Running time: 95 minutes.

Cast:

Jacqueline Susann Bette Midler

Irving Mansfield Nathan Lane

Florence Maybelle Stockard Channing

Michael Hastings David Hyde Pierce

Henry Marcus John Cleese

Great? No.

Grating? Yes.

This cold comic look at the life and death of trash romance novelist Jacqueline Susann has ear-gouging dialogue, rude conversations with God and – something that time will eventually prove me right about – the single biggest miscasting of the new millennium. Read More

Bette Midler’s ‘Hello, Dolly!’ crew got sick backstage

Bette Midler’s ‘Hello, Dolly!’ crew got sick backstage

At the first preview of “Hello, Dolly!” fans were kvelling and Bette Midler received four standing ovations — but backstage members of the production got a sickness bug, and rumors spread along the Great White Way that the cast had come down with food poisoning.

“There was buzz that people in the cast were sickened by some cookies brought backstage by the show’s David Hyde Pierce,” said a theater source, who added, “Half the cast were throwing up offstage and running to the bathroom whenever they weren’t onstage.” Read More

25 Things You Never Knew About the Golden Globes

25 Things You Never Knew About the Golden Globes
Posted January 3, 2017 by Moviefone Staff

1980_gg37_bette_midler_chevy_chase_fotor

For a night known as Hollywood’s most notorious open-bar gala, the Golden Globes ceremony remains (somewhat) shrouded in mystery.

Most viewers probably don’t even know who presents it (the Hollywood Foreign Press Association), how many voting members it has (only about 90), or what qualifies them to pass judgment on movies and television. Yet movie fans and awards mavens continue to take the Golden Globes seriously as a precursor to the Academy Awards, since some of the Globe honorees will indeed go on to win Oscars. Read More

BetteBack October 1, 1973: Flashy, Trashy and Infectious Miss M.

San Mateo Times
October 1, 1973

2016-08-26_6-36-55

In this crazy rock ‘n roll world where superstars streak into prominence with the alacrity of unnatural phenomena and instantly develop a cult following that worships with unquestioning fervor, Bette Midler is being acclaimed the High Priestess of Camp.

She makes the kookiness of early career Barbra Streisand look pristine, the grossness and vulgarity of Belle Earth and Sophie Tucker seem tame and the frenzied on-stage antics of Janis Joplin and Jerry Lewis appear understated. It was only her third appearance in the Bay Area and her four night stint at Berkeley Community Theater was a solid sellout. Read More
