Video: Bette Midler: Bootleg Betty: Rainbow Sleeve – Divine Madness

This is a Tom Waits song Bette sang in Divine Madness that was left off the soundtrack. A gem of a song. She has always been his best interpreter. It just seems logical for her to record an album of his tunes.

One of Bette Midler’s more unusual grand entrances…

Cosplay Videos
David Bruce: Mishaps Anecdotes
April 10, 2018

“One of Bette Midler’s more unusual grand entrances was in a hot dog costume, complete with condiments and buns. At an early fitting of the costume, Ms. Midler ran into trouble. The costumers had used Krazy-Glu in its construction, and because of a lack of air circulation in the costume, the glue had not dried. When Ms. Midler tried to get out of the costume, she couldn’t — her hair was glued to the giant weiner. She was forced to stay inside the giant weiner until her hairdresser came and cut her out.” – David Bruce Read More

Famed Critic Pauline Kael Speaking Of Bette Midler In “Divine Madness”

Mister D: I remember the time Pauline Kael was on Tom Snyder’s old talk show. He asked her who should win the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1979. Without pause she said Bette Midler for the Rose. She said I haven’t heard lines read like that in decades and if she doesn’t win the Oscars mean nothing. This was when critics had considerable power over what was a hit or miss in movies She was considered one of the greatest critics. Check out some books on her. Bruce Vilanch said he sat next to her in Divine Madness. She was a big Bette Midler fan before the movies. She was upset with the end product of Divine Madness because of the editing and how they ended the movie. She said a real Bette Midler concert would not end like that. It would end up with a happy, upbeat song, like “Friends” After she saw Jinxed, she was sure Hollywood would ruin the Bette we knew growing up. That’s me hearsay and gossip. IF I’m wrong Bruce, let me know. It’s been a while and I might have succumbed to the Telephone Game. Read More
