Bette Midler Singing “You’ve Got To Have Friends” – Continental Baths Concert
Check out those vocals!
Brenda (Bette) leads the pack down the escape route, and holds together Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn in the crazy destruction of trying to escape when stealing paperwork from taxes. When they get down to the bottom, Brenda proves she’s the most adventurous – saying “Ya wanna go again!?”
Barbara Hershey plays on the side of Bette Midler, where the women talk about careers and mixing it with children, which turns into an argument of jealousy and anger. Bette has the last word – and it’s a harsh but amazing one.
Bette’s goodbye to Johnny Carson
Bette serenades Johnny as a goodbye with the song “One For My Baby, And One More For The Road,” and it’s absolutely divine. They show Johnny just taking in the moment from his desk, and it’s so heartwarming.
“The woman who taught gun powder how to bang.” Well, if that wasn’t a line about Bette Midler, I don’t know what was.
The bar patrons get Stella up on the bar to dance to “her song” Â – and she pulls her old moves from her days at the Continental Baths out as she rocks it in a very Burlesque type of way.
Winefred Sanderson couldn’t be ignored, and it’s one of the most iconic Halloween songs there is. Also, her theatrics couldn’t be matched in this role.
Happy Birthday, Bette!
