Maybe The Oddest Couple Of All...

I have been furiously working on a new project the last couple of weeks (stay tuned for an announcement about that!) and as a result I haven't checked in with my favorites much.  I was trying to work my way through the backlog on everybody (a two day process for Chateau Thombeau alone!), when I arrived at the always fascinating and informative Poseiden's Underworld.  It was there that everything started spinning, turning purple and going dim when I read that while studying at the American Academy of Dramatic Art, Grace Kelly was a classmate of Don Rickles!!!




I KNOW!!!


So, here's the thing.  My guess is they must of done scene work together.  What, in the history of great two-character scenes, do you think they did?  Or if you were their teacher, what scene would you assign to them?

i always wanted to read the book he came out with a few years ago. he must've included what you've mentioned.....i mean, who wouldn't tell a grace kelly story if they had one?

You've got a point there.

So excited to hear about your new project, Felix! Can't wait to hear more! And although I love both, I just can't reconcile the idea of GK and DR living on the same planet. My mind is boggling...

OK Felix, I'll play along:

1) The balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet. If Buckwheat and Alfalfa could do it, these two should have been able to work through that, too.

2) Any of the Ceaser and Cleopatra scenes from George Bernard Shaw's Ceasar and Cleopatra. What I love about this play is that if it done as Shaw wrote it, it is a tongue in cheek piece, ripe with satire.

3) Scarlett's confession and Rhett's Give a Damn from Gone with the Wind. That should speak for itself.

Genius, Cookie!

The Cool Cookie beat Miss J to it- Caesar & Cleo, baby!

Did you know that Ceasar and Cleo is available on DVD? Our copy is a Korean DVD; it came in English and Korean dub versions. Too fun!

I for one would have enjoyed this screen pairing in From Here To Eternity. Rolling around in the surf smooching...
