Finally ! I wondered why the did not release a trailer while promoting this in Cannes.

Thanks for posting OP!

I read the Hollywood Reporter review and it sounded promising.

[quote]“We need to shoot; I’m here now, come on,” says an exasperated Dunaway. Seated on a comfortable-looking sofa in an airy New York apartment living room, she huffs, “This is the worst seat in the world. I’m not happy with anything here.” But when she then snaps, “I need a glass of water, not a bottle,” a quick complicit eye roll at the camera suggests she’s aware enough to own the reputation as part of the persona she created.

[quote]This is addressed only glancingly in a reference to her career as “before and after Mommie Dearest,” with the unstated subtext that the industry seldom gives women another chance after such a stinging failure.

Jane, Barbra, Sally, Diane, Meryl, Jessica, Glenn, etc., have all endured flops, yet they still get hired. People stopped hiring Faye because of those flops + her nasty temperament.

An actor-director like Barbra is a perfectionist, and despite her megalomania, she gets things done. Faye, OTOH, couldn't get Master Class off the ground because she's too erratic.

by Anonymousreply 17June 27, 2024 8:37 PM

She tried to come back with Barfly. Did not work out, so she hang in there as a working actress , She did get hired for 3-5 tv-productions a year , where her "intensity" usually overpowered the material. She had a career in reverse. She started on top and had to struggle her way down, which she wrote about in her book as being ok.

I have a soft spot for her because of her work in the 70ies. Since i´m not in her eyeline ore ending up as salad faced gayling, i don´t have judge her mental illness and erratic behaviour.

She is very good at tossing food, btw.

I can't picture Dunaway doing stuff like Book Club, or Eighty for Brady. Dunaway had a specific niche that she was perfect for. But a lot of those types of roles simply aren't being written anymore.

The one role I could have seen Dunaway doing in recent years is Katharine Graham in The Post. Upper class elegance was always Dunaway's forte, but once again we got a miscast Meryl.

R21 combined with better editing and transitions, I think Mommie Dearest would’ve been better received than it was originally if one of the following two things happened: —Faye’s over-the-top acting was toned down just a drop —The writing for the movie was more grounded in truth

When I say “better received” I was thinking along the lines of Faye’s career wouldn’t have cratered the way it did after Mommie Dearest and just been on a long and steady decline.

Now if both of those things happened then you could make the argument that Mommie Dearest could’ve been a serious contender for Oscars..

In 1966 Faye won the Theatre World Award for her performance in he blank-verse drama Hogan's Goat written by William Alfred. She became friends with the playwright and called him the single most important figure in her lifetime. Teacher, mentor and the man she would have picked as father if the choice was hers.

She reprised her role in the play for a 1971 television production. Also in the cast is future golden girl Rue McClanahan.

I´m still hopeing the 1974 tv production of Arthur Millers After the Fall with Faye and Christopher Plummer shows up someday

Excerpt from “With Love, Mommie Dearest” by A. Ashley Hoff:

“POOR FAYE DUNAWAY. HER performance as a rampaging Joan Crawford was so convincing that even people in the industry couldn’t help but wonder if there was just a tiny bit of similarity between her on-screen performance and her off-screen behavior.

And unlike Patty Duke, whose scene-chewing performance in the similarly maligned Valley of the Dolls nearly derailed her own award-winning career (though she later made peace with the film and its campy legacy), Dunaway has been unable to see the humor in Mommie Dearest. It remains a sore subject, one that sadly (she feels) has overshadowed her great performances in some of the true cinematic masterpieces of her generation.

Faye’s participation in the movie serves as a cautionary tale on multiple levels: not simply in picking and choosing roles with more care, or in giving a performance that can be perceived as too convincing, but also in handling the failure of a project with grace, humor, and a lightness of touch, allowing one to move forward undisturbed. It also offers a lesson in being (or being perceived as) kinder to one’s coworkers and peers.”

Kelly and Mark really seemed to struggle with asking La Dunaway anything relevant or getting anything mildly substantive from their guest.

I'm guessing that's probably because Faye's team presented them with a 100-page list of topics Miss Dunaway would absolutely NOT discuss, the most glaringly obvious being Mommie Dearest.

So that left Kelly and Mark with snoozer questions like, "How did you feel when you won the Oscar?"

Oscar-winning Hollywood legend Faye Dunaway has played many different parts across her decades-long career, but she's being comically selective about what her grandson will call her as she takes on a new role as his grandmother.

The 83-year-old made a rare recent talk show appearance Monday on Live With Kelly and Mark to promote her upcoming HBO documentary Faye, and answered a question about what her grandson, Oliver Dunaway O’Neill, will call her when he's older.

"I know you have a grandbaby, and right now, you've been deciding on a grandma name," Ripa said, referencing the 2022 birth of Dunaway's grandson, whose father is Dunaway's only child, Liam Dunaway O'Neill. "I think, this is what I think the baby should call you: Ms. Dunaway."

The Network and Chinatown star smiled and looked toward the audience and said, "No way! No way! I tell him I want to be called grandmama."

Ripa then suggested, "What about Madame?" which Dunaway also rejected.

"No! He'll tell me exactly what he wants to call me, and it'll be better than any name I could've thought of," she said. "He's a darling boy. I adore him!"

Dunaway also spoke about her decision to allow cameras to capture portions of her life for the Faye documentary, which premiered at Cannes in May.

"The unexamined life is not worth living. I think [Socrates] said that," Dunaway said. "You have to examine your life, look at your choices, understand why they were made, and learn from it. If you don't do that... life is not worth living."

R142, I know what I'm referring to. I remember reading that there was more to the Lombardo/Harper lawsuit than you stated. Here is a relevant section from the article linked to below:

"Lombardo says that the 74-year-old 'Rhoda' star, and her husband, Tony Cacciotti, 'knowingly withheld the truth about her cancer.' The writer filed the lawsuit as a result of one filed by Harper, in which she claims he did not pay the remainder of her contract despite her illness."

Unless Lombardo is lying about the the Harper suit, in which she apparently expected to be have her full contract paid even though she was unable to play it out, you'll have to admit that does put a different spin on the situation. BUT, as I said, even if Lombardo's version is the truth, he's still a POS for many of his other vile lawsuits and other actions throughout his "career." Here again, this source is not the best place to link to for this kind of story, but presumably the information is factual.

When she uttered her “can you please leave…” line she was still so beautiful at 55. Her surgeries destroyed everything unique about that great face. I’d normally lay this on the surgeon(s) but I suspect she was a nightmare patient who refused to listen. Just as she told the director not to say action until she gave him a cue, she surely told the surgeon to operate on her cue. With horrific results.

You actually hear Dunaway before you see her, complaining over the soundtrack that she's ready to shoot, why have they not start shooting yet, come on already! Later, director Laurent Bouzereau ... will present a montage of the star sitting on her couch, grousing about everything from the angle at which she's being shot to the water she's drinking. Headlines that play up her temper tantrums and sudden leaves of absence from productions, all brimming with puns and schadenfreude ("Dun-Away With!"), whiz across the screen. A vintage clip from the Carson-era Tonight Show, featuring Bette Davis spitting a Xenomorph-bloodstream level of acid as she dubs Dunaway the worst person in showbiz, gets some early prime real estate. Faye may have indeed come to praise this screen icon and noted anti-wire-hanger enthusiast, but you wonder how much it plans on burying her before it gets around to the complimentary segments.

Funny that only Mickey Rourke and Sharon Stone (of all people) are the only major talking heads who were included from the present time. Her plastic surgery is horrible. Rourke's has gotten less awful with time, except for that nose. Dunaway looks like she had some good, subtle work when she was younger.

Her career was destined to hit a decline around the late 70s/80s and its not surprising she wound up on tv and in low budget films. Women on screen were different and she didn't destined to play mothers (as she demonstrated in "Mommie Dearest"). Younger actresses like Sigourney Weaver (a much better actress) and contemporaries like Jane Fonda got the strong female leads in better films.

All her roles after Network seem to be her just doing yet another version of Mommie Dearest.

Years ago, I went to an anniversary screening of The Poseidon Adventure, where Carol Lynley appeared and was interviewed.

She told a really funny story about how she was staying at a bungalow at the Chateau Marmont in the 70s while she was filming a movie, and Faye Dunaway had the bungalow next to her. Faye came knocking frantically on Carol's bungalow door early one morning and insisted on coming into Carol's bungalow so she could look through her window into her own bungalow and see if the guy she took home the night before was still asleep in her bed.

Oh God, Faye is amazingly, laughably bad in that EVITA PERSON clip. I saw the movie when it first aired, but I did not remember it or her being SO terrible.

Faye as Calas just seems bizarre.

by Anonymousreply 271July 16, 2024 3:15 PM

She has a particular style of acting that isn't particularly suited for a lot of films which made her decline as she aged inevitable. She can play sexy and intense (with absolutely zero character range) but as women age, especially in Hollywood in the '80s, there aren't a whole lot of parts for that type.

Faye playing Hepburn in the play Tea at Five was a horrible idea. First off, she was only playing the older Hepburn in the second act which was under an hour. The first act with younger Kate was cut for obvious reasons. Of course, the experience ended in tears especially for one little homosexual boy. I saw Kate Mulgrew do it at the old Promenade back in 2003(?) and she was fabulous.

I'm surprised that they didn't discuss that she took a pay cut for Bonnie and Clyde in order to get her name above the title. It was a smart move on her part, but maybe it wasn't her idea so she didn't want to include it.

I watch this at least monthly and it never fails to make be laugh. When actors do monologues they fail to capture the spontaneous “mouth moving faster than brain” so evident here. Faye spits out “ob” then her brain catches up “OBSESSION” You can hear the brain thinking “good one!” as she continues “why can’t you be obsessed with POSITIVE things. It’s a work of art.

I absolutely loved this. It really made me like her, and it humanized her- Even the bipolar "excuses"- There is not doubt that Faye suffers from mental illness. Its very funny that even THIS really brushed over Mommie Dearest (At least Faye's views on it). This was excellent. She really loves her son, that made me happy.

And I particularly enjoyed Sharon Stone, Mickey Rourke, and Liam.

It's easy for people such as you to "like" someone with mental illness if they don't have to work with them or deal with them directly. If the truth is that she's mentally ill and that could be controlled by drugs which she refuses to take, forgive me if I'm not at all sympathetic to her.

R309- oh no- DO NOT MISCONSTRUE-- I would kill this bitch. And I truly feel for anyone who had to work with her- in any capacity.

I really dug that Assistant Director from chinatown- He gave zero fucks and laid it on the table-

There are NO excuses for the recent shit, including the little homosexual boy.

And I forgot to mention- Mara Hobel is a mensch. What a sweetheart.

This DID humanize Faye, and she is clearly mentally ill- but I could NEVER fault anyone who was treated like shit by her, nor do I condone this. I think every negative word about Faye is true. But I felt for her. AND her victims!

It's only sortof a rehab. They admit she's been a handful and doesn't always take her meds. She's lucky to have her son, although she seems to be his career and probably his retirement plan. Still, only the most random people went on camera to talk about her. I was not aware that she had worked so much post-Mommie Dearest, although it all looks pretty forgettable.

She was awful in "Mommie Dearest", but the awfulness (not to mention the makeup and clothes) are what make it a camp classic.

Turning this into a 12-part series would have made it excruciating.
