  1. Obit on Variety https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/diahann-carroll-dead-dies-tony-winner-first-black-woman-to-star-in-tv-series-1203358913/

  3. Part of the problem is that it's almost all dialog and takes place almost entirely in their suburban London home. But Jackson and Washbourne are magnificent. The film is rather bleak but has a vein of black humor. Hackson recites the poem "Do Take Muriel Out." Do take Muriel out She is looking so glum Do take Muriel out All her friends have gone. And after too much pressure Looking for them in the Palace She goes home to too much leisure And this is what her life is. All her friends are gone And she is alone And she looks for them where they have never been And her peace is flow
  4. One of my favorite Glenda Jackson films is the little-seen Stevie. She plays Brit poet Stevie Smith, a mousy little thing who lives were her spinster aunt (Mona Washbourne). Her voice is addictive. Wonderful film, detailing the mental decline of a woman who's maybe missed out on a life.
  5. Glenda Jackson in Elizabeth Is Missing image sharing sites
  6. Those of who saw Glenda Jackson in the Masterpiece Theater mini Elizabeth R were riveted by her electrifying performance. Her early films often repeated this level of energy but those kinds of roles were few and far between. Women in Love is a fabulous film. I think it stands up well. As for her win for A Touch of Class, it's a very good rom-com. Barbra Streisand should have won for The Way We Were but that film was botched in the editing room and portions of it make no sense.
  7. Glenda had a spotty career and made a lot of films that went nowhere in the US. Yet her range of performances in films like Women in Love, House Calls, A Touch of Class, Mary Queen of Scots, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Stevie, The Music Lovers, and an hilarious cameo in The Boy Friend made her a top star for about a decade. She earned two other best actress nominations in addition to her two wins.
  8. Two-time Oscar winner Glenda Jackson hadn't made a theatrical or TV film since 1992. After a career in politics followed by some stage work, she's back before the cameras for a British TV movie called Elizabeth Is Missing. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8201352/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_1
  9. JUDY took another big dump. Dropped 56.3% from Sunday to Monday.
  10. and according to Box Office Mojo.... the film plummeted 34.5% from Saturday to Sunday taking in $795,766. Not a good sign for this week's expansion. We'll see if they scale back the planned expansion to 1,400 theaters.
  11. "Boosted by Oscar talk for Zellweger’s portrayal of the famed entertainer, “Judy” struck a chord with moviegoers and collected a promising $3 million. That haul is especially impressive considering it opened in just 461 North American theaters, translating to $6,705 from each location and marking the highest screen average of the weekend. If its limited debut is any indication, “Judy” could end up in the category of prestige films that are both loved and seen. Next weekend, the musical biopic will expand to 1,400 to 1,500 screens." This article from Variety misinforms. Notice the info of
  12. Thanks for your snarky comment, but you need to comprehend what you read. They originally predicted an opening of $1.3-1.4M... The film opened to $.9M. Get it? Then they predicted the weekd would take in $3.1M. It took in $2.9M. Get it? Look at Variety and Box Office Mojo websites before you accuse someone of lying. The numbers are there for all to see. Despite the ballyhoo, the film has underperformed. Get it?
  13. RZ obviously. Have you ever seen her NOT in preening mode?
  14. It was actually $2.9..... despite the hype.
  15. Three. JUDY barely made $3M in its opening weekend and Variety is now trying to claim it a hit. Diane Keaton's Poms opened with $5.3M and was announced as a bomb from the getgo.
  16. and Zellwigger is way too old to be playing Judy.....
  17. Variety stated the film's audience is more than 60% women over 35. So the film is HAG BAIT.
  18. People who expect that the actress would lip sync to Garland's recordings.... There's flashback stuff (apparently) to when Garland's voice was at its peak. As I said before ..... stick with the Judy Davis TV biopic.
  19. According to Box Office Mojo https://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?page=daily&id=judy.htm Loos like it opened in most big cities a fell far shot of estimates. Anyone expecting to hear Garland's magnificent voice will flee the theater when Zellweger starts yodeling.
  20. It opened on 461 screens....
  21. Zellweger's yodeling must have turned off audiences.
  22. Zellweger's preening biopic opened Friday. Estimates called for $1.3 to $1.4M but it made only $900K, less then 70% of best guesses.
  23. NY Times wasn't terribly impressed and said Zellwigger plays Judy as a panicked hummingbird.
