Bette Midler On Her Parents:

Bette Midler On Her Parents: “My mother was very showbiz. Not my father. His idea of showbiz is Lawrence Welk. He adores Lawrence Welk. My mother loved television. She used to send us to the movies and she was particular about the movies she’d send us to. No dramas. No horror movies. As a result, I never saw a horror movie until I was 22. My folks, you see, like hula dancing, but not the darker things in life. (Springfield Union, September 1, 1976)

  1. Your parents were very wise. I think there’s enough darkness in daily life I don’t like saying it in the movies.
