Q. Do you think Bette Midlerâ€™s movie career is really flnished? – K.L.
A. Donâ€™t count Bette out yet. Yes, sheâ€™s had her share of big-screen miscues and outright flops lately. But things appear to be looking up. Midler tells me sheâ€™s ready to co-star in a flick titled â€œDown and Out in Beverly Hillsâ€ for those folks at the Walt Disney studio. Bette in a Disney movie? Letâ€™s just say Disney is altering its image as a movie producer.
Also, Bette tells me sheâ€™ll play the lead in a movie biography of Ina Ray Hutton, the 1940s bandleader (one of the few women to wave a big band baton). Sounds like good casting
