Shelley Duvall lived with tobacco heir Patrick Reynolds (Draycott) in Wolf's Lair, a castle in Hollywood from 1974 to 1976. She convinced a shy, reluctant Reynolds to visit her on the set of Nashville (1975), whereupon director Robert Altman cast him in a walk-on role in the film. Reynolds was then cast as Draycott Deyo in Bernice Bobs Her Hair. Later he went on to act in other TV and film roles, including a starring part in the sci-fi feature Eliminators (1986). In 1986 Reynolds embarked on a new career speaking out against Big Tobacco, his family's former business. See more »
Marjorie's braids are brunette throughout the story, but they are blond in the back seat of her car. See more »
I'm at a point in my life where I don't have time for anything but the truth. Life is too short, and I'm getting too old.
How old are you?

well, we watched this movie in English class. Not only is it a movie from the 70s (you can tell from the picture quality), but it's absolutely absurd. The girl who plays Bernice is, well, either awful or incredibly good. Bernice is this sad, pathetic, horse-toothed girl who spends the summer with her pretty and popular cousin Marjorie. THe movie was slow-moving, but very funny. I laughed the entire time I watched it because Bernice was such a sad little person.She only showed true spirit at the end. If you would like to have yourself a good laugh, or don't mind losing 45 minutes of your life, this is a pretty good way to spend it. I'ts ridiculous and silly and entertaining, mostly because Bernice is the strangest person I have ever had the privilege to watch.
