Storyline

After an illustrious career, veteran Hollywood makeup artist Ruby Romaine has finally decided to call it quits. Or has she? In a series of hilarious tales told from the confines of her trailer, Ruby explains why she reconsidered her retirement--and how she almost didn't get a second chance to do the two things she does best: touching up an actor's face and sharing the latest Tinseltown gossip!

As deft as ever
10 August 2003 | by (san diego) – See all my reviews

Tracey directs this one, with much the same rhythm and truth as her "Takes On" series.

Surprises include legend Debbie Reynolds playing it straight to Ruby Romaine's booze-soaked stream of consciousness; new characters Svetlana and Pepper Kane; veterans Barbara Bain, Paul Dooley & M. Emmet Walsh all casted brilliantly in flashbacks (the tales as spun by Ruby).

Ruby is certainly among the most inspired of Ms. Ullman's characters. This HBO special is long overdue & much appreciated. Viva Romaine!!!
