    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Of course the fact that Donny is a pathological liar isn't new, but it will be interesting to see some of the details of specific lies as the Mueller report rolls out. It might not make much difference politically, but it will be fun to see in black and white. And then there is the fact that Trump tried to obstruct justice, but the only thing that saved him was that his orders were not carried out.

    Happy Birthday to...

    ...Jessica Lange (born on April 20, 1949), the American actress who needs only a Grammy Award to become the 16th person to win all four entertainment awards. Time cover for October 25, 1976 She has been nominated six times for Academy Awards. Her recognized roles and movies are as follows (Oscar wins in bold): Frances Farmer in "Frances" (1982). Best Actress. Julie Nichols in "Tootsie" (1982). Best Supporting Actress. Jewell Ivy in "Country" (1984). Best Actress. Patsy Cline in "Sweet Dreams" (1985). Best Actress. Ann Talbot in "Music Box" (1989). Best Actress. Carly Marshall in "Blue Sky" (1994). Best Actress. Lange made her screen debut as a Fay Wray-like character in a much-hyped 1976 remake of "King Kong." "I had no idea how big the movie was, or that coming out of it I wouldn’t be taken seriously," Lange told AARP The Magazine in 2017. "I went back to taking acting classes for a few years. When you’re young, you don’t see the connections, how one thing leads to the other." Lange appeared as The Angel of Death in Bob Fosse's "All That Jazz," a 1979 drama (with musical numbers) starring Roy Scheider as a choreographer/director loosely based on Fosse himself. The film was nominated for nine Academy Awards and won four (art direction/set decoration, costume design, film editing and original score). It also tied Japanese director Akira Kurasawa's "Kagemusha" for the prestigious Palme d'Or (or Golden Palm) at the 1980 Cannes Film Festival. Fosse died of a heart attack on Sept. 23, 1987 at the age of 60. Her first major dramatic role was opposite Jack Nicholson in the 1981 remake of "The Postman Always Rings Twice." It was directed by Nicholson's frequent collaborator, Bob Rafelson. Lange is one of 11 people who have received two Academy Award nominations during the same year. She earned a Best Supporting Actress nod for her performance opposite Dustin Hoffman in the 1982 comedy "Tootsie." She also received a 1982 Best Actress nomination for her portrayal of the troubled actress Frances Farmer (1913-1970) in the biopic "Frances." At the 55th annual Academy Awards ceremony held on April 11, 1983, Lange won the Best Supporting Actress award for "Tootsie." But the Best Actress Oscar went to Meryl Streep for her performance in the drama "Sophie's Choice." The 1984 drama "Country" reteamed Lange with her "Frances" co-star Sam Shepard -- who also was her significant other in real life. They played an Iowa couple who struggled to keep their farm and family together. The film was one of three farm-oriented dramas that year. The others: "Places in the Heart" (starring Sally Field) and "The River" (which was headlined by Mel Gibson and Sissy Spacek). Lange received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress, but the award went to Field. Lange was nominated for her third Best Actress Oscar in four years for her portrayal in "Sweet Dreams" of the great country music star Patsy Cline (1932-1963). Directed by the Czech-born British filmmaker Karel Reisz, the biopic also starred Ed Harris, Ann Wedgeworth, David Clennon and John Goodman. For the film's musical performances, Lange lip synced to Cline's recordings. The 1989 drama "The Music Box" starred Lange as a Chicago attorney determined to keep her Hungarian immigrant father (Armin Mueller-Stahl) from being tried and deported as a Nazi war criminal. For her performance in the picture -- which was directed by the Greek-born filmmaker Costa-Gavras -- Lange received her fourth Best Actress nomination. In Martin Scorsese's 1991 remake of the 1962 thriller "Cape Fear," Robert De Niro starred as Max Cady -- a man released from prison after serving a 14-year term for rape. He blamed his conviction on his attorney Sam Bowden (Nick Nolte). As a result, Cady began methodically stalking and terrorizing Bowden and his wife and daughter (Lange, Juliette Lewis). But he was always careful to stay within the bounds of the law. Oscar nominations went to De Niro (Best Actor) and Lewis (Best Supporting Actress). Set during the Cold War era, the 1994 drama "Blue Sky" starred Lange as the manic-depressive matriarch of a military family assigned to a U.S. Army base in Alabama. Meanwhile, her husband (played by Tommy Lee Jones) became concerned about the negative impact of above-the-ground nuclear testing. The film -- which was not released until four years after its production -- was the last picture directed by Tony Richardson (1928-1991). On March 27, 1995, Lange became only the second person to win a Best Actress Oscar after winning one for Best Supporting Actress (Meryl Streep did it first and Cate Blanchett later duplicated the feat).

    Overrated talents ?

    I think Elvis was overrated as an "actor." If he wasn't a popular singer, he wouldn't have had a Hollywood movie career. Or at least not much of one. Some producers and studio moguls liked to promote their wives/girlfriends, when some of them had limited talent. Fox promoted the hell out of Tyrone Power. He was decent in a handful of films. Dreadful in most of the others. Some of the child stars were overrated. They perfected one kind of scene, the all-important crying scene, but most of them couldn't play comedy very well and were out of their depth when it came to subtler forms of drama. The only child stars from the 30s and 40s that I consider to be any good: Jackie Cooper, Butch Jenkins and Dean Stockwell. They acted natural on screen. Especially Butch Jenkins. He seemed like a real kid. But a lot of the other ones were over the top.
