Witches Old And New

Monday March 4, 2013
Witching frenzy


Witches always steal the show.

HOLLYWOOD has always had a steady flow of movies that feature witches.

This year alone, we’ve had at least three movies that involve witchcraft. In the campy Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, Famke Janssen plays a witch named Muriel; Beautiful Creatures sees Emmy Rossum as Lena Englet who has to decide whether to battle good or bad; and in Oz The Great And Powerful, Michelle Williams plays the good witch while Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz are the bad witches.

Audio: Mambo Italiano by Bette Midler


Mambo Italiano by Bette Midler

A boy went back to Napoli,
because he missed the scenery,
the native dancers and the charming songs.
But wait a minute, something’s wrong.

Hey! Hey!
Now it’s hey Mambo, Mambo Italiano!
Hey Mambo, Mambo Italiano!
Go, go, Joe, you mixed up Sigiliano.
All you Calabrese do the mambo like crazy.

And hey Mambo! Don’t wanna tarantella,
Hey Mambo! No more-a moozzarella.
Hey Mambo! Hey Mambo Italiano.
Try an enchilada with a fish-a-barcalada.

Hey goombah!
I love-a how you dance rumba.
But take-a some advice paisano,
learn how to mambo.
If you’re gonna be a square,
you’re never gonna go nowhere. Read More

BetteBack February 1, 1978: Bette Midler Gives Her All

Salina Journal
February 1, 1978


ONLY DIVINE: That’s Bette Midler these nights at the jam-packed Copacabana in New York. She resembles a feisty little cross between Jeannette MacDonald gone crazy, Nancy Walker grown taller and Mae West liberated.

The best thing about Miss Trash-and Flash is how she dares to relate directly to her audience on a realistic level. She is one of the big stars and big talents who comes out, gives her all, “gets down” and never conveys the feeling that she might be putting you on. In other words, she is not full of it. Read More
