Director Mark Rydell On Bette Midler Getting Into Character Of The Rose: “There were some difficult moments. I told Bette she had to visit some places inside herself that were very painful for her. She begged me not to make her deal with her own deep loneliness and the pain she’d lived with as a child. Bette didn’t want to go into the battlefield of her subconsciousness. But she committed herself to those black areas she had been trying to forget in all of her 32 years. The result is one of the finest performances I’ve ever seen. She pulled out all the stops. Â She had the courage to look her worst, distort her face and wring out her emotions.” (Beaver County Times, November 18, 1979) – Bette Midler
