So, here was our Unseemly Trivia Contest question:

It was one of the most extraordinary theatrical seasons ever – producing classic plays and musicals.  In this season, no less than fourteen plays and musicals would eventually be turned into motion pictures.  And, one play was actually adapted from a novel which had, just a couple of years earlier, been turned into a hugely popular film, a film that was ultimately remade two times.  One of the remakes had a different title than the original film, and the other retained the title of the original film.  However, the title of the original novel was completely different to all the film versions, while the title of the play was completely different than all of the above.  Two other plays had incidental music by famous theater music composers.  Of the musicals, only one musical’s star would go on to repeat their performance in the film version.  One play with two high-wattage stars would come to the screen with two completely different high-wattage stars.

So – the following questions all have to do with plays and musicals turned into films:

Name the fourteen plays that became films.

Name the play adapted from a novel that had, just a couple of years earlier, been turned into a hugely popular film.  Name the original film, name the different title of one of its remakes, and name the novel’s title.

Name the two plays that had incidental music by two famous theater music composers and name the composers.

Name the musical and the star who was the only one that season to repeat their role in the film version.

Name the play with two high-wattage stars and name the two high-wattage stars who eventually did the film version.

And I'm happy to say this question stumped everyone - in fact, we only had one guess and it was from someone who never guesses - der Brucer - it was a noble guess, but not all the answers fit.  And now, here are the answers you've all been waiting for:

West Side Story, Look Back In Anger, Miss Lonelyhearts, Romanoff and Juliet, Compulsion, The Dark At The Top Of The Stairs, The Music Man, Two For The Seesaw, Sunrise At Campobello, The Entertainer, Blue Denim, Who Was That Lady I Saw You With, The Waltz Of The Toreadors, The Visit.

Monique/Diabolique/Reflections Of Murder/The Woman Who Was No More

Miss Lonelyhearts (Jule Styne), Compulsion (Cy Coleman)

The Music Man/Robert Preston

Two For The Seesaw/Henry Fonda and Anne Bancroft/Robert Mitchum and Shirley MacLaine.

And there you have it.  So happy to have stumped everyone, for once.

I love bowling. I worked at a bowling facility in the Minneapolis Athletic Club for a year as an assistant to an irascible old coot. I don't think he liked me much but I did the morning shift (coming in at 6am and oiling the lanes and cleaning up from the night before) so he didn't say much. His mantra was "these are not alleys, they are lanes" If you called the place a bowling alley you risked a nasty tirade. I was glad to leave the place when I went to University.

That being said, I haven't bowled in years, though I still have my bowling ball and bag. I need new bowling shoes, though.

I have a beautiful purple Columbia bowling ball and shoes that go with it (white tennis shoe style bowling shoes with purple accents).   I was in a league when I was living in Spirit Lake. I wasn't very good, but we did handicaps, so it worked out pretty well.   I got "Most Improved" one year.  And my team won the league one year so I actually have a trophy.  Woo Hoo

We had a wonderful day of casting calls yesterday.  I was so pleased to see so many talented singers come into the room.   And I admire them so much.  Some of them had to sit outside for hours waiting for their turn to come in and have their short moment.  It isn't easy - that's for sure.  Yet they somehow all managed to make it look easy.  

We have another day of casting calls on Sunday, and then after that, we should be able to start making some offers.

Yes, BK, I was around  and very aware when MARNIE got its critical lambasting in the 1960s. I've never liked it, and it subbornly refuses to grow on me after years of trying to enjoy it. Obviously, many critics have come to appreciate it over the years.

TORN CURTAIN, however, was panned then and is still disliked by many. It's wildly underrated in my opinion. I've even read respected critics who rate TOPAZ ahead of TORN CURTAIN which I don't understand at all.

Does anyone here have access to Julie Andrews' LP of DON'T GO IN THE LION'S CAGE TONIGHT that could make a audio cassette or CD for me? I have never heard this entire album, and the two "Buy It Now" offerings on Ebay would cost $25 with postage added which I think is extreme.

I don't know how I passed it up when I was a member of the Columbia Record Club back in the 1960s. I remember it coming out, but I bought something else, and have never heard the whole thing, just the few songs from it that are on the Julie CD compilation A LITTLE BIT OF BROADWAY.

Just curious if anyone has access to it. Thanks.

Good morning, all!  Yesterday was a real depression day and I hope today is a much better one.  This is proof, DR Danise, that it doesn't get easier, six months after the death.  I had received an email from Susanna Moross Tarjan asking how my dad was doing.  This meant that I had forgotten to notify her at the time so, after writing back, I spent the remainder of the afternoon in a state and went to bed around 8:30.  I got up this morning around 10 am, and I'm feeling much better.

DR MattH, I can make you a copy of the Julie Andrews album; I believe it's my favorite of hers, although I always loved her early RCA recording on which she sang Noel Coward's moving "Matelot.".  When I was doing WHERE'S CHARLEY? in 2004, Tony Walkton and I talked about it a lot.  It was one of the recordings I bought around 1966 or so and played to death.  I couldn't wait for a CD release.

Today, back to the NYPL, tomorrow night, "Bukowsiical," for which I bought tickets while we tjhught DR Cason was playing the role.  I have to buy an Amtrak ticket to DC today as well.

TOD:
  DVD:  UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS, final disc; HOT FUZZ (Region 1 or Region 2?);
  CD: Guy Haines, The Brain from Planet X,  LA Pique Dame (Tchaikovsky)

Friday!!!

About 2/3rd's of a house last night.  Much cooler....both air coolers are now working.  

Show went well....lots of NEW acting by a couple of people who must have been saving it for the show...didn't hear those readings or singing during the rehearsals...not that any of it was an improvement.

And you will be glad to hear that El Gallo did not come and stand beside me on the steps during my BIG speech.  No, he decided to walk across the front of the stage while I was talking, blocking me from the audience.

Ass!  I told him afterwards to PLEASE not do that!  "Oh, I was just trying to get out of your way....."

I was so excited to see I could join last night and still get the tix!!


The Lovely and Generous DR GINNY very kindly used 2 of her preview slots to get tix  for the Vixter and I to see the final  'Brain" on 8/30

Yes, DR Ginny -- divas are every where!  :(

I certainly know diva editors who protect "their cut" like it was the holy grail. Yes, I like doing my cut first, but if there are changes, I make them and move on. Especially with something as disposable as promos/commercials. I just try find a way to give them what they want (so many times they don't know how to articulate what's bothering them and I have to decipher.) With enough digging, sometimes what they think was wrong wasn't the problem at all and then I can figure out how to solve it.

On a long form piece if I feel the producer/director is making a midguided judgement I will defend my decision---once. Then if they decide to go with their idea, I don't sulk and pout about it. (although in my head I'm saying "You are stupid, stupid, stupid!") It's disheartening to work with a director who makes decisions based on their own ego to the detriment of the film, but fortunately I don't have to work with that person more than once.  

I enjoy the occasions when I'm proved wrong, because then I feel like I've learned something!

And I have to say that I am blessed to work with lots of wonderful collaborators at this point in time and rarely have any drama in the editing room.

Yes, BK, I was around  and very aware when MARNIE got its critical lambasting in the 1960s. I've never liked it, and it subbornly refuses to grow on me after years of trying to enjoy it. Obviously, many critics have come to appreciate it over the years.

TORN CURTAIN, however, was panned then and is still disliked by many. It's wildly underrated in my opinion. I've even read respected critics who rate TOPAZ ahead of TORN CURTAIN which I don't understand at all.

Well, I adore MARNIE.  I always have.  
I agree that TORN CURTAIN is supremely under-appreciated.

Re deadlines: We did that on Wednesday - gave the agent until noon.  She called us immediately and asked if they could have till five.  We said okay.  She called back and said this conversation had to take place between hubby and wife, and that it would that evening.  The next morning we had the call from the agent with the final details, and I, upon my arrival in LA, agreed to them.  And since then we have probably left eight messages for the agent, just asking for a simple confirmation - we agreed to the final details and it should be a done deal and probably is, but until I get that final confirmation, then for me it's nothing.  Unfortunately, my casting guy is in sessions all day, so he can't leave another "you have until five" message, which is what I want to do.  I may ask my GM to do it right now.

Hmm...

So... I have a $25 discount voucher on United from when my luggage was "delayed" back in March... However, I can only redeem the voucher via a travel agent or their phone reservation system... Which would not let me take advantage of the Online Booking Bonus... But after checking the fares online, i realized that the one-way fares are just the same as the round-trip fares - the flights are priced in segments, not as a "package" (like the used to do, if that makes sense).  So...

I called United to see if I could book my next trip as two, one-way flights/tickets.  This way I could apply the discount voucher to one segment, and book the other segment online and get the frequent flyer bonus.  And, lo and behold, that's totally kosher.

And since I was thinking of heading down to Richmond next week - my aunt from Seattle is visiting, and I haven't seen her in almost 20(!) years - I checked out the flights for that trip too.  Surprisingly, even though I'm booking less than two weeks in advance, I was able to find fares under $175 - which is cheaper than Amtrak.  And if I decide to book it as two, one-way segments and get two Online Booking Bonuses, then I'll have enough points for a free ticket!  :)

Next came David Mamet's HOUSE OF GAMES which I had never seen before. About con artists and con games (at least on the surface), I saw the cons way in advance and figured I was smarter than the filmmakers. Then Mamet pulled a fast one and brought me up short. Good film!

Next, I began watching the special features on the DVD. There are separate 14 minute interviews with Lindsay Crouse and Joe Montegna. I had forgotten that Crouse was at one time married to David Mamet. What a gift for him to present her with: a terrific leading role in a great script being directed by him.

And, of course, Montegna's professional involvement with Mamet goes way back, so hearing their comments on making the picture were very entertaining.

The actress is not happening.  We finally heard back from her agent, who said the problem was that the actress thought that the Equity stipend was WEEKLY.  Now, this is a person who DID a NYMF show last year.  To say that I went ballistic over all this wasted time is an understatement.  And if we've lost my followup actress because she booked another show in these last two days, well, my wrath will know no bounds.  I'm tempted to call the actress personally.  Certainly the two mutual friends are going to get an earful today.

Today I went to Goodwill to look at the books, and hanging on a hanger in the book section was this....I don't know what to call it.....like a tank top with spaghetti straps and built in H U G E bosoms......so I took it up to the counter and bought it for $3.99....

In retrospect, it has been abominable, both she and her agent.  I was giving her the benefit of the doubt because we'd had such a nice conversation.  And the funniest thing her agent said just a few moments ago was, "She's going to pass."  I believe my GM laughed out loud and said it was not she who was passing but US.  In fact, the casting guy formally pulled the offer, and has now sent an offer to our next actress, who hopefully will like the show and want to do it.  But, I'll be talking to the casting guy at three-thirty my time, and we're going to make a list of five actresses.  I don't think we've heard from the actor who has an offer, but hopefully soon.

And now I'll tell you who the actress was - and I want to preface it by saying I really do think she would have done well in the part, but two days ago the whole idea of it began to annoy me (all the waffling) and I'm now glad it hasn't worked out, because I feel there would have been even more drama ahead.  And when I tell you who it is, you'll know immediately how stupid a decision this was on her part - she should have leapt at the chance to a) do a wonderful part, and b) work with me, who, after all, has worked in the recording industry for seventeen years and has worked with the best there is.

Her name is Andrea McArdle, and creating this kind of bad energy is maybe why she's never been able to create another role outside of tiny little workshops.

I don't know how I passed it up when I was a member of the Columbia Record Club back in the 1960s. I remember it coming out, but I bought something else, and have never heard the whole thing, just the few songs from it that are on the Julie CD compilation A LITTLE BIT OF BROADWAY.

I have an early meeting on Tuesday at LACC to see what props and costumes and wigs I can borrow.  The answer to that question will help alleviate some of the stress.  Part of the problem is that for the last couple of years, the producers on NYMF shows have so been bending and subverting the rules that the bar keeps being raised in terms of the production values.  That's not what this festival is supposed to be about, and Equity actually forbids it being about that, but they do it anyway.  There is one show in this year's festival, and I'd guess that they're spending between 50 and 100K, most of it entirely under the table, which is not fair to any of the other shows.  I've had to raise a considerable amount of money, most of which we have no hope of getting back, and even having done that, everything is so tight it's not even funny.

We are finding some backup designers just in case I don't think what I'm shown over the weekend is going to work.

Thankfully my courier story has a happy ending. Although no thanks to them.

I had sent an envelope yesterday with Purolator via canada post. It was guaranteed next day delivery by noon. Now when i placed the order i said the envelope absolutey had to get there by noon. And if their service was not reliable they should tell me and i would send it some other way.

Well of course they said it was guaranteed.

Anyhow early this morning i called canada post and the guy on the phone said that there were no followup details. Meaning other the system was not updated. Or something was wrong.

Well something didn't sit right with me. So i called purolator directly. And their computer said that the plane had had some problems and had to emergency land somewhere else. And that until the envelope was entered into the system there, there was nothing they could do.

Needless to say this did not make me happy. If you think BK gets annoyed at people. I really cannot put up with crap.

What made it worse was the agent said that when they have problems like this the parcel is always put on rush and would go out tomorrow (saturday).

This did not make me happy. But it could have worked.

They told me to call back later to see if it was updated.

Well since i did not believe they would deliver on saturday. And since they had no idea where the package was i decided to take matters into my own hands and send the item by another means.

So the person got it.

But (and here's the funny part). So i call back purolator at 4:30pm and i think they have located the package. And it will be delivered monday.  I said, "first off that will do me no good". and "second i was told all mistakes were put on priority to go out saturday".

Apparently that is not entirely true (which really annoyed me).

I told them to put a note in the file to not deliver it and just send it back to me since time was crucial.

And guess what. The guy had the nerve to tell me that although i would get my money back for the shipment, i would have to pay to have it returned.

They must be joking, right? :)

Apparently that is their policy. Although there is no chance i will be paying for it. He said i could fight it. But really they are going to get an earful from me.

DR JENNIFER - I feel your courier pain....and all they say is "You get your money back....."

I hope you tell everyone you know WHAT company it was.

Yah it is pathetic that that is what they consider just.

I don't think it was really their fault.

But it certainly is their fault that they are telling people different things (i.e., one person tells me it will go out priority sat and another says only monday).

I have dealt with canada post before (not sure if i have to go through them). I think so since i paid them. But they are usually fair. One other time when a thing was guaranteed for a certain amount of days (and arrived late). They paid both for the original item and the replacement.

But this time i will probably add up extra fees incured (that seem reasonable). Just to see if they will pay them back.

Marnie was celebrated only in retrospect.  On its release it was one of the most critically lambasted of all Hitchcock films and audiences hated every minute of it.  In those days, I was literally one of its only supporters.

Today I went to Goodwill to look at the books, and hanging on a hanger in the book section was this....I don't know what to call it.....like a tank top with spaghetti straps and built in H U G E bosoms......so I took it up to the counter and bought it for $3.99....

It's actually chilly tonight here in New York City.  I had to don a sweat jacket (for some reason "sweat jacket" doesn't seem right, in any case...) in order to stay warm as I was walking around.  It's even "cold" enough outside that the MTA has turned off the A/C in some of the subway cars.  Of course, it's always warm underground, so...

MONK had a pretty good episode going until a ridiculous chase across a bumper car track that no one would have attempted while trying to chase a crook.

We saw the murder in the first scene, so again not a traditional mystery, but there were a couple of surprising curve balls thrown into the plot and one very tender and well played scene with Monk and Julie.

Good heavens, pretty racy lyrics if you ask me


Sioux City Sue
ASCAP 1945
Lyrics by Ray Freedman (aka Max)
Music by Dick Thomas

I drove a herd of cattle down from old Nebraska way
That's how I come to be in the state of Iowa
I met a gal in Iowa, her eyes were big and blue
I asked her what her name was, she said Sioux City Sue

Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

I asked her if she had a beau
She said, "Yes quite a few"
But still I started courtin' my sweet Sioux City Sue
The first time that I stole a kiss, I caught her stealing two
I asked her did she love me, She said "Indeed I do"

Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

Now I'm admitting Iowa, I owe a lot to you
Cause I come from Nebraska to find Sioux City Sue
I'm gonna rope and tie her up, I'll use my old laso
I'm gonna put my brand on, my sweet Sioux City Sue

Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

Hard to imagine his childhood without so many things we did take for granted - especially in terms of communication and entertainment.  He grew up in a rural area. The village is still even 5 hours away from here by car.  His little sister married my mother's older brother.

I am thus very genetically close to my cousin. (Gary).

On behalf of my father, thank you.

He is remarkable. He is quite ambulent, quick witted and funny - though has short term memory loss.  He is on no medication!

But, of course! I'm taking Matthew, my best friend from college, for his birthday tomorrow night.  We're going out for a snack after.  Would you like to come along?

I'd love to -- if you and Matthew don't mind waiting maybe 15 minutes (while we break down the set, props, costumes, etc.).  Whaddaya say?  Am I worth 15 minutes?

DR Cason - So, how did it go tonight?
Title: Re:THE STORY OF JERRY AND THE DOG
Post by: Cason on August 10, 2007, 09:18:40 PM
The al fresco was nice - I think we got some good buzz on top of the already good buzz we had going.  Our actor ended up making it there after his ad agency meeting (but Jennifer, the other understudy, did get to perform with the number, since we are doing it out of context and isn't complicated blocking).  It was kind of chilly of course, but we were inside there at Fringe Central.

The band run-through went well -- I stood in for the "Founder" tonight running through the songs, as his voice was threatening to go out...and then they just ran some of the blocking and choreography and we were done at around 10.

So, we'll see how it all goes tomorrow!

Then, I will be learning lots and lots of lines and brushing up a lot of songs as quickly as possible.

Luckily, he was saying he was feeling better at the end of rehearsal...but it's a matter of taking care of it.  We have the show tomorrow night, and then a noon show on Sunday.  Add that on top of the fact that they are still on LA time (i.e. a show at 9am - and people were complaining about singing at the al fresco at 1pm NY time today) and the fact that "Bukowsical!" is a serious workout for any singer...we'll see.

People just aren't taking care of their voices...luckily they were all just marking through this evening, but still...

That's the thing - I really love the show (it's perfect for the Fringe), and the whole creative team...it's just a shame that a few rotten apples can spoil the bunch; yet of course, none of that is seen by anyone other than us.

And I hope it doesn't read to the audience.

Speaking of divas, I guess Big Daddy Warbucks finally made it home, and told her no.  She was bad news (bad karma) -- sorry she played the game on you, bk -- but I have a feeling the Joyce you end up will be much better for you and the show. The Brain is a no divas allowed zone!

They are a fun group -- one of my friends introduced them to me about a year and a half ago, after they had a concert special on HBO.  Funny, strange New Zealanders!

Very possibly - but I just don't know how to get it to fit the size qualifications for an "avatar"...

I think I'll go upstairs and read. I started "My Life at Grey Gardens 13 Months and Beyond A True and Factual Book" by Lois Wright.  Who knew she was living there with the Edies?   She was there during the whole filming but didn't fit in with the theme of the doc, so her footage was cut.   Interesting

Because the smart people only want to fly to Pittsburgh to be with TD, and then they never want to leave.

And what are you waiting for, dr TCB?
