Did You Know?
In 2013, Stefanie Powers
acted in "Looped," a theatrical production based on a true story about the events involving actress Tallulah Bankhead. Powers played Bankhead in the play. The action is confined to a sound studio where the star is supposed to record a line of dialogue that must be matched to a scene on film - the process is called "looping." Both Bankhead and Powers shared the brief scene in the movie that contains the line that Bankhead had such difficulty looping. "Looped" originated with Valerie Harper
in mind. She earned a Tony Award nomination after the play's short stint on Broadway in 2010, and was to have reprised the role in a national tour. Harper withdrew because it was revealed that she had developed terminal brain cancer. See more

Do you attend church regularly?
Well, not too regularly.
[Mrs. Trefoile looks shocked
Not as often as I'd like.
Not as often as you'd like? What a strange thing to say! If you like going to church, why do you not attend regularly?
Well, I mean, often there isn't time.
Not time for prayer? Not time to sing the praises of the Lord? One's duty to the Lord must take precedence, must it not? Patricia, I'm surprised at you!
