We saw her about the time that top photo was taken, for her "one man show". She was great, sang some songs, told some dirty jokes. And the entire audience was made up of a bunch of little old ladies...and fags!
Love Bea Arthur. Interestingly, in the black and white photo she looks like Dita Von Tesse!
You're right, Kerry, very Dita - although I understand she's tiny, and Bea is anything but.Maybe Dita should have married her instead of Marilyn...
Or maybe BEA should have married Marilyn!
