‘Hocus Pocus’ Gets a 3 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Releases and Funko POP Vinyls

Posted on Tuesday, August 7th, 2018 by Ethan Anderton

There’s been plenty of celebration regarding the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park, but another beloved movie from 1993 is also worthy of honor, especially with Halloween around the corner.

Hocus Pocus is one of Disney’s cult favorites with children of the ’90s especially holding the movie close to their heart. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy play the witch trio known as the Sanderson Sisters who are trying to achieve immortality in Salem, Oregon, but they need a certain spellbook in order to complete the incantation, and three kids and a talking cat have run off with it.

Before the curtain even went up on opening night, #HelloDolly was an event. 

Before the curtain even went up on opening night, #HelloDolly was an event. ???? #BetteMidler’s first appearance in a Broadway musical in decades? The tickets practically sold themselves. It’d be easy to get swept up just seeing Bette on Broadway, but the scale of the show rises to meet her with its standout cast, impressive choreography, and visual feast of colorful costumes. Heck, there’s even a train! ???? Did you see the standout musical this year? ????: Illustration by Patrick Faricy for EW Read More

Bette Midler On Movies, Music, And Her Gay Fans

Mister D: Once again UK journalists outdo the US as far as interviewing. Great job!

Gay Times UK
Bette Midler Interview
By Darren Scott
Sept. 2014


We’re having a debate with Bette Midler about her music. She doesn’t believe us when we note the eight year gap between her last, Grammy nominated album, Cool Yule, and her new one, It’s The Girls, is far longer than the one between No Frills and Beaches.

As gay conversations go, correcting Bette Midler on her back catalogue is pretty much the daddy of all things gay. Read More

Outrageous Fortune Tropes And Idioms


Bette Midler and Shelley Long star in this female buddy picture from 1987. Long plays Lauren Ames, an actress whose ambition far outweighs her success despite her many years of taking classes; Midler plays Sandy Brozinsky, a fast-talking, foul-mouthed waitress from the wrong side of the tracks who horns her way into Lauren’s exclusive drama class on a lark. Unbeknown to each other, Sandy and Lauren are both seeing the same impossibly perfect man, Michael Santers (Peter Coyote). When Michael inexplicably fakes his death, Sandy and Lauren wind up joining forces to track him down. A wacky, cross-country caper ensues, and both women discover that there’s a lot more to the man they love—not to mention their suspiciously homicidal Russian acting coach—than they ever imagined.

Bette Midler April 6, 1987: Bette Midler Goes To Writer Tama Janowitz For Movie Idea

Publication: Winnipeg Free Press
Issue Date: April 6, 1987

popupimgwatermark (47)

Writer Tama Janowitz caused a bit-of a stir In New York recently when the New York Times Magazine published her profile of Bette Midler. In Adventures in Tinseltown, Janowitz describes travelling to Hollywood to interview Midler, only to have the Divine Miss M offer her a development deal to write a script for a Midler idea.

In the article, Janowitz unabashedly agrees to think it over and maybe “take a meeting.” Writers aren’t supposed to get anywhere near that close to their subjects. Editor Edward Klein admits he was “a little bit” uncomfortable about the conflict of interest when the piece came in. But, he says, “It was all done tongue-incheek, with a sardonic quality. And since nothing came of it, I saw no problem. … My thought was, this was not a journalist on assignment, but a fiction writer (Janowitz wrote Slaves of New York) using her experience as part of her non-fiction report. I was very happy with the piece. I thought it was very amusing, a superb piece of work.” Read More
