Harry Dean Stanton Feuded With Bette Midler On The Rose

wu1ftc0

Stanton played a small role in the 1979 filmThe Rose” as a famed singer whose work is idolized by the title character played by Bette Midler. His character insults The Rose and asks her not to perform his songs. Stanton perhaps took the role a little bit to an extreme and began insulting Midler. On the recent Criterion Collection reissue of the film, Midler waxes fondly about all the cast, but still seems comically resentful of Stanton; she did, after all, once have a production company called “We Hold a Grudge Productions.” (Gold Derhy) Read More

BetteBack March 3, 1975: Is Bette Midler going to appear on TV as a regular on a show without singing?

News Journal Mansfield
March 3, 1975

Bette Midler

Q. – I was told that Bette Midler is going to appear on TV as a regular on a show without singing. Is this possible?  P.B., Bridgeport, Conn.

A. – It’s possible, but it’s not about to happen. Bette Midler has not signed to star in a straight non – musical TV series. However, she is a capable actress and would probably do well playing an offbeat character in a TV series. Bette’s current plans do not involve TV … she is readying a Broadway revue in which she will star. Read More

(On finding good original material for movies): People these days cannot write from scratch. They can adapt a novel or a play.

But when it comes to sitting down with no previous source material and saying these are the characters, let’s find a home for them well they can’t do it. (1991) – Bette Midler
