Steel Magnolia

Sometimes we forget that, even today, giants still roam the earth, and a few goddesses are still at work. Albeit, all too often, in vehicles unworthy of their grandeur...


  1. I want a remake of A Little Night Music (to replace the dreaded memory of the horrific Liz Taylor version from 1977) with Dear Shirley as Madame Armfeldt. She would be perfection in the part.

  2. I have to say I've never thought of her in a Continental Mode, but you just may be right. Meryl as Desirée? Kevin Kline as Egerman? You might just have a picture there...

  3. And if you have the misfortune of seeing her as Chanel, you'll never want to think of her in a Continental Mode.

    But we love Shirley anyway. And I'm personally praying that she makes a return to the musical stage in some form or fashion.
