I'm the one and only Barbra Streisand. After being one of the biggest box-office stars of the 1970s, I kick off the new decade with the movie "All Night Long", as a favor to my agent, Sue Mengers, married to the movie's director Jean-Claude Tramont. She convinces him to fire the actress Lisa Eichorn, even though they began filming weeks ago, and replace her with me. It's a short shooting schedule and they're willing to pay me $4M to take over the role, making me the highest paid actress in Hollywood at the time. I say 'I'll do it'.

My first film of the 1980s - billed as a 'romantic comedy' - is the biggest bomb of my career. The film flops at the box office and gets negative reviews from every major film critic. The movie takes in only $4.5 M, with a budget of $15M. A very big blemish on my film career I can't get rid of, but I can get rid of Mengers for talking me into this - so I do. I fire that bitch as my agent. I take that $4M and put it towards my next movie project that I've been working on since 1968 : 'Yentl'.

I’m Faye Dunaway, preparing to sweep the upcoming award season with what will become the tour de force performance of my career as Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest. I’m having Edith Head design my award show gowns in tribute to Joan with shoulders pads and secret compartments for the boys and the booze.

R137, I was 11 in 1981. My grandmother took me to visit family in Texas — my first time on a plane. The strike happened (or maybe the firing happened) while we were there. We were worried the whole time that we’d have to find another way to return.

Did you click your heels? Or wake up with a bump on your head?

R151, I wish. We boarded the plane in Dallas to fly home. Just as we were taking off the plane screeched to scary halt. Everyone thought it had something to do with the strike/scabs… turns out there was a deer on the runway.

One sad thing about that strike was that the union (PATCO) actually endorsed Reagan in the 1980 election, then he betrayed them a few months later. Potential Trump voters should take heed.

I'm the Queers Who Saved "Mommie Dearest". Without us it would have tanked at the box office:

"The film has had an enduring reputation as a cult film, particularly heralded by gay male audiences, owing to its over-the-top camp style. Writing for the British Film Institute, Alex Davidson observed that the film "has been savagely embraced by queer audiences since its cinema release in 1981. Drag queens outdo each other for the fiercest impersonation of Faye Dunaway in Crawford mode. And who doesn't want to be part of a 'whiplash' audience, whatever that is? Well, possibly Christina Crawford, who has seen her harrowing history of child abuse transformed into a gay pantomime. Watching audiences howl with laughter as your avatar is beaten and throttled must be a sobering experience."

I'm the Streisand LP "Memories" by Barbra Streisand. Columbia wanted a Streisand release for the Christmas season, but Streisand was in London working on her movie 'Yentl'. Streisand agreed to record two new songs while in London ("Comin' In and Out of Your Life" and "Memory"), while the remaining eight tracks were 'previously released'. Three of the songs were released three years earlier on her 'Greatest Hits Volume 2' album, one was from her 1979 album 'Wet', and one was from her last album 'Guilty'. One was an out-take from "A Star Is Born". Photographer Greg Gorman flew to London to do the cover and back cover photos of Streisand.

Columbia, going through financial difficulties at the time, gave the album a huge promotional push with advertisements saying, 'Remember Your Life and Times in Love'. Fans fell for it - the album peaked at #10 on the Hot 200 Albums Chart, and stayed on the chart for more than two years. The album went on to sell 5X Platinum. It was released in the UK as "Love Songs", with an additional four 'previously released' tracks, and became one of her best-selling albums of all time in the UK.

R59, the single is beautiful song, not laden with radio-friendly hooks, but her voice sounds superb here.
