Quotes

Doreen: I simply had to drop by to congratulate you on finishing "Weep Not for the Happy."
Gloria Vane: What a thoughtful gesture. Especially since you were so keen to play the part yourself.
Doreen: Where ever did you hear that?
Gloria Vane: Oh, Peter told me. He said, "Doreen wants to play your part very badly." And I said, "You know, I think she could."
Doreen: I think you have things a bit mixed up, dear. But I won't argue. I respect my elders.
Gloria Vane: Oh, you should, dear. There's so few of them left.

failed pilot that I watched for some reason
1 September 2019 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

I don't know why I watched this. I bookmarked it on YouTube for some reason. Did I just like the premise? Was there an actor in it I was curious about?

Whatever the reason, the pilot for this series about a 40s movie star is, in spite of the somewhat unusual setting, a very conventional sitcom. It did have the occasional cute moment, as in the scene where Gloria makes the little boy cry, but mainly it's that sort of loud, obvious sitcom that wasn't good in the 90s and looks even worse today.

JoBeth Williams is persuasive, however, as Gloria, and actually rather impressive imitating a 40s tearjerker scene. But she wasn't enough to keep me watching to the end.
