BetteBack January 28, 2000: ‘Great’ Bette for a good time

The Boston Herald
January 28, 2000 | Verniere, James

original

Isn’t She Great.”

Rated R. At Copley Place and suburban theaters.

three stars

A kooky labor of love, “Isn’t She Great” confidently sports no question mark in the title and stars the Divine Miss M as Austin Powers’ favorite writer Jacqueline Susann.

Susann, as some may remember if this film is to have any shelf life at all, was the failed actress-turned-best-selling author of the shag-a-licious novels “The Valley of the Dolls,” “The Love Machine” and “Once Is Not Enough.” While she didn’t quite change the face of American publishing with her poodle and Pucci wardrobe and her sex-crazed, pill-popping starlets eager to trade their nubile flesh for movie roles as long as the supply of uppers and downers never ran out, Jacqueline Susann was something else, all right.

Anybody surprised that Bob Hope will be emcee at the Friar Club charity dinner honoring Johnny Carson on October 19. The combination of the King of Emcees saluting the King of Midnight should get the festivities off to a smashing start.

President of the Friars, Buddy Hackett, has the event scheduled for the grand ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Read More

BetteBack January 28, 2000: Isn’t She Great? No. Grating? Yes.

Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)
January 28, 2000 | Gire, Dann

6ae83e3558034e683e1c8f5848fe2f09

Isn’t She Great

Written by Paul Rudnick; based on an article by Michael Korda. Produced by Mike Lobell. Directed by Andrew Bergman. A Universal Pictures release. Rated R (language). Running time: 95 minutes.

Cast:

Jacqueline Susann Bette Midler

Irving Mansfield Nathan Lane

Florence Maybelle Stockard Channing

Michael Hastings David Hyde Pierce

Henry Marcus John Cleese

Great? No.

Grating? Yes.

This cold comic look at the life and death of trash romance novelist Jacqueline Susann has ear-gouging dialogue, rude conversations with God and – something that time will eventually prove me right about – the single biggest miscasting of the new millennium. Read More

BetteBack December 16, 1973: Danger Sign to the Divine Miss M?

Pacific Stars And Stripes
December 16, 1973

57549_0

The first time I heard Bette Midler on record I didn’t really care for her. She sounded a bit pretentious, a trifle overbaked and more than a little false. But then I saw her one night on Johnny Carson‘s show and it changed my whole opinion of her.

On that show, she wore a wonderfully tacky outfit, went through some horrendous choreography and sang “Chattanooga Choo Choo” with such enthusiasm that no one would be heartless enough to tell her the whole act was 30 years out of date. Read More

BetteBack November 30, 1973: What Can You Tell Me About Bette Midler?

Dover Times Reporter
November 30, 1973

tumblr_l65kwzKwWK1qcumv8o1_1280

What can you tell me about Bette Midler? I think she is fantastic! H.C.

Bette’s personality has helped to get her songs right to the top of the charts. She is from Hawaii, which she savs is a wild place. While still there. Bette got some work as a movie extra. It paid S350 a week. The money helped convince her parents that maybe shoe business wasn’t such a bad business and Bette consequently flew to N.Y.

One day a talent coordinator for David Frost saw Bette and signed her for the Frost Show. The audience gave her quite a reception and Frost signed her to five more shows. Merv Griffin jumped on the bandwagon and so did Johnny Carson and Mike Douglas. She was on her way to fame! Read More
