Reminder: Bette Cancels Appearance At “The Rose” Screening

Mister D: Just in case those of us who are or were going haven’t suffered enough, I just had to repost this in case there were some tag alongs who don’t know about it. It’s my duty to slide down the razor blade into the swimming pool of alcohol that is my life….:-) Just kidding, but somebody has to be the bearer of bad news or is barer of bad news….probably the first. In the second I’d be hideously naked.

Actors Barry Primus and Doris Roberts, Oscar-nominated sound mixers Jim Webb and Theodore Soderberg, and director Mark Rydell will participate in an onstage discussion following the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ (now sold out) 30th anniversary screening of The Rose on Friday, September 25, at 7:30 p.m. at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. Los Angeles Times film critic Betsy Sharkey will host the evening.

Bette Midler was originally scheduled to be present at the event, but as per the Academy’s press release “has had to cancel for personal reasons.” Instead, Midler will provide “a special video message dedicated to the cast, crew and fans of the film.”
