The film is based on the 1980 novel The Edge by Frank D. Gilroy. He sold the film rights to the Ladd Company at Warner Bros. intending to direct; Ladd then sold the project to Herb Jaffe at United Artists for $300,000 and Jaffe hired David Newman to rewrite it. A UA production executive suggested Bette Midler for the lead and she asked for Don Siegel to direct. The script was rewritten by Jerry Blatt, Carol Rydall, Midler and Siegel. During development, it was also known as The Jackpot and Hot Streak. Gilroy had his name removed from the film and was credited as “Burt Blessing”. Read More

Video: The Thorn (Complete) With Bette Midler

Bette Midler in The Divine Mr. J

The Thorn is a comic, religious satire movie released on May 24, 1974, as The Divine Mr. J. It was first shown as The Greatest Story Overtold at the Detroit Institute of Art in 1971. It was released on video in the early 1980s as The Thorn. It was written, directed and produced by Peter Alexander. Its release was legally challenged on grounds that its title and advertising deceptively exploited the fame of its co-star, Bette Midler.

Originally conceived as The Greatest Story Overtold, an irreverent spoof of the 1965 movie The Greatest Story Ever Told, the film was influenced by the increase in popularity and profitability of Christian evangelismPeter McWilliams wrote, produced, directed and edited the film under the pseudonym, Peter Alexander. He went on to write a broad range of mostly self-published, popular books.  It was filmed mostly in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan from 1970 to 1971. Read More

The Sublime Miss M, bette midler

For nearly 50 years, Bert and Ernie, the two lovable puppet roommates of Sesame Street, have been at the center of a constant question regarding their personal identities: Are Bert and Ernie lovers? Whether presented as a thoughtful question about the portrayal of queer characters on television or simply as a joke, the question surrounding the puppets’ relationship has existed for decades.

Speaking with Queerty, Marc Saltzman, a former writer for Sesame Street, says that he always understood that the two Muppets were, in fact, gay. “I always felt that without a huge agenda, when I was writing Bert & Ernie, they were,” he said. “I didn’t have any other way to contextualize them.” Read More
