Trivia:
Gertrude tells Henry Hopper, portrayed by Andrew McCarthy, that their name for their car is "Priscilla," which is a fictionalized reference to the actual name they used for their car, "Auntie," which they named for Gertrude's aunt Pauline, of who Stein was fond of saying "...who always behaved admirably in emergencies and behaved fairly well most times if she was flattered." However, "Auntie" was a Ford, while "Priscilla" on screen was a 1920s convertible of indeterminate origin, but later referred to in a letter written to Henry Ford (read aloud) as a 1912 Model T "body."See more »

Alice doesn't live here anymore...., 27 December 1998
Author: holefill from The Sierra Foothills of Northern CA

The richness and romance of the lives of Alice B. Toklas and Gertrude Stein is poorly and bitterly portrayed in Waiting For The Moon. It is no wonder that the video went out-of-print before the ink was dried on the boxes.

The stately and mannish Gertrude is played by a pretty and starry-eyed Linda Bassett. Alice, her demure and gypsy-like lover and secretary, is played by a sharp-tongued, tantrum-throwing Linda Hunt - looking more like Gertrude's grandmother than her paramour.

This is not a happy film, although its intention may be otherwise, and for Stein-aholics and Toklas-aphiles it is a huge disappointment. One of the most beautiful romances of this century deserves a portrayal better than this.
