(On Woody Allen and maybe starring in one of his films) “Well, you know, he never calls, he never writes … I dropped a few hints, but I don’t know.

(On Woody Allen and maybe starring in one of his films) “Well, you know, he never calls, he never writes … I dropped a few hints, but I don’t know. I thought he liked me. I thought he enjoyed it. [Woody’s agent] Sam Cohn called me and said he thought Scenes From a Mall was the best thing he’d ever seen me do and he was sure it would be a big hit, and he sounded genuine. He had no reason to lie. He thought we were fabulous together. And I thought, “Golly, I hope I get to do it again.”‘ (1991, Movieline) – Bette Midler Read More

El Paso Herald Post
August 8, 1974

83870

The common denominator for a variety of new fashions from high-styled Adolfo to funky Bette Midler is that “they all make a girl look like a woman.” There is even a revival, in the most recent showings, of big hats, four-inch heels and white gloves.

The Future Of Women In Comedy In Hollywood

IndieWire
