Broadway doesn't go for BOOZE and DOPE....

What I want to know is how does her hair look so good after wearing that wig!

The white/silver hair looks like Miranda's in "The Devil Wears Prada"

Thanks for the "Big Valley" clip. Lyon is so HOT, sometimes the classics never die. I mean, just think of being in the middle of a Lyon and Mitch (Rod Taylor in "The Birds") sandwich; or better still a 'doll' fueled 3-day weekend.

And is there anyone in this whaling town that hasn't taken the Amtrack from NY to Hudson and not scraped a patch of fog away from the window,to gaze upon the mighty Hudson River, gently turned their collar up about their throat and not absolutely MORPHED into Anne Welles?

You want to know why her hair looks so Miranda Priestly under that wig? Trixie, Helen Lawson's store-bought hair came from the eighth floor of Bergdorf-Goodman -- not 14th Street.

Gotta get off, gonna get
Have to get off from this ride
Gotta get hold, gonna get
Need to get hold of my pride

When did I get, where did I
How was I caught in this game
When will I know, where will I
How will I think of my name

When did I stop feeling sure, feeling safe
And start wondering why, wondering why
Is this a dream, am I here, where are you
What's in back of the sky, why do we cry

Gotta get off, gonna get
Out of this merry-go-round
Gotta get off, gonna get
Need to get on where I'm bound

When did I get, where did I
Why am I lost as a lamb
When will I know, where will I
How will I learn who I am

Is this a dream, am I here, where are you
Tell me, when will I know, how will I know
When will I know why?

Gotta get off

You said it Dionne.

14th Street? Please. St. Mark's Place!

If you want,
you can look at my WIGS.

They're the finest
in polyester, and...

I didn't pay for them.

Trixie Stickyfingers, they called her in the slammer, I hear.

Yes, my fingers are VERY well-known.

"Broadway doesn't go for BOOZE and DOPE...."

Well what does Broadway go for? PILLS and POPPERS? REEFERS and VINO? FOREIGN CHEESE?

Aaron, any smart answers?

Hudson doesn't go for KETAMINE and CRYSTAL METH ... we've got to be in bed by 8P.M. to be up before dawn to winterize the garden, and get the victorian cast-iron urns safely stowed away in the storm cellar.

TO NORTH FIFTH STREET:
Thank you for your kind comment on my Amtrack/Anne Welles revery.

I guess I'm a writer now (not as good as Rich of course), but a writer none the less, yeah ... like ZELDA FITZGERALD!

Speak for yourself. Just walk around town and notice how many cracked garden urns sit in the yard all through the winter...

Can you imagine how funny a lot of Susan Hayward's lines would have been if spoken by Judy Garland (originally cast as Helen Lawson)?

Now imagine Helen Lawson in Hudson...

"They drummed you right out of the Hudson Opera House, so you come crawling back to Stageworks. But Stageworks don't go for girls who pass out at the Red Dot listening to their music saying 'That's Me! That's me! Cassandra O'Hara!' Now out of my way, I have a kayaking trannie hooker waiting for me."
