Mister D: With the recent spate of musicals trickling on to the big screen, it just seems like Bette and other actresses who can really sing are being looked over. And don’t give me the bullshit about being too old…Meryl Streep in “Mamma Mia!” (where no one can really sing) and Michelle Pheiffer in “Hairspray?” There has to be something out there for actors/actresses that can really sing.
I’d like to see what you ladies and germs think. Is there a musical you’d like to see brought to the big screen that you think Bette would be perfect for….whether it’s the lead or a supporting part? Is there a bio of a deceased singer/actress that would be appropriate for Bette to do…for example Dusty Springfield, Peggy Lee, Rosemary Clooney, Wendy O. Williams? 🙂 What about a remake of an old Hollywood musical?
Let’s all put our thinking caps on and see what we come up with. Nobody will laugh at your favorite picks….except maybe me!!!! Just kidding. I just thought this might be fun, but hey, you may think it’s a bore….so we’ll see.
Love, Mister D
PS: If you’d like to give a reason why that would even make your choices better.
