So what the hell kind of agent do I have?

My agent stinks! STINKS! I don't know where the hell he is, as I've been trying to get in touch with him for over 12 years already. I want to get back into the showbiz ya know, and I ain't a young chick anymore, I figure there's got to be a damn remake to that "On Golden Pond" being developed in Hollywood for gawd sakes.
I think I would be perfect in the part that Hepburn played in that picture, my luck they'd cast that Paris Hilton in the Jane Fonda roll, OY can you imagine! and who would they make my husband, probably that Danny Devito,. ha It would wind up straight to the DVS video thing. Them twits in Hollyweird don't know what the hell they're doing. Every time ya look at the Fantangos or whatever the hell it's called,  they're releasing remakes, or some crap aim at a damn 10yr old brat in 3D! The other week I thought of being a nice grandma, as I am!.. and take a couple of my countless brats to the picture show, well!!! My daughter was nice enough to pick me up and drive me and 3 of the brats, forgot their names, to the Orion 25 plex on 36st. She wanted me to take 10 of them kids of hers, but i put my foot down on that idea quick. Well it was a toss between that Medea picture (God forbid!), Hop(Oy, a cartoon!), Arthurs(Love revivals) and some movie about a bird(yeah right!).  I took them to see that "Scream" picture, and I went to see that Arthur one.  I fell asleep! I must have slept through eight showings of that picture, and still didn't see anything with Liza Minnelli or Dudley Moore. What the hell was I originally talking about in this thing here?...oh yes.. MY gawd damn agent STINKS! The last time I heard from him he was looking in getting me a commercial for one of these insurance companies, ya know like the late Ed Mcmahon I was to talk about how ya can sell your home to whatever bank for some cash and still live in it, till ya die..for ya kids to get nothing in the end, cause the damn companies would take every damn thing ya own. Sounds good to me, let me tell ya. Here's a photo I found of an ad I did in the old days. It was for the Gimbles department store, right before they went out.
A looker! No Doubts about that HONEY!  
I remember them SOB's being cheap as all hell, when they came knocking at my damn door later that evening for their brush. Thank goodness that It didn't happen these days, or I would be in the seat next to that Lindsey  Lohans, another winner! HA.

"A Pu Pu Platter" my 1st musical.

Me in a promotional still for the motion picture “A Pu Pu Platter” (1948). A musical that made poo poo at the box office. I played Maria Von Charles a lady of the evening (aka a hooker)/lounge club singer in the Bronx.  It was about her struggles to become Miss Pu Pu of China town, an annual event in the Big Apple and how she had to fight her way to get there by NY transportation.  It had a great list of wonderful songs and dance numbers, like; “A Egg Roll for a Dollar, My Love for an Extra 2”, “Where’s That Damn Train”, “Move That Ass“, “Pu-Pu for You!”, “China Town Melody”, “So, I‘m From The Bronx, and Your Point“, “Give me that Pu Pu Crown!”, “Five Dollars, Five Minutes” and “What the hell is in that Dim Sum?” 
The picture opened and closed the next day, but did manage to make it’s rounds as a road show in a couple of the southern states, and played at the drive-in’s, as all my pictures eventually winded up. It’s biggest play date was a double bill with  “I Remember Mama”, somewhere in Tennessee, people remembered mama, but forgot about Pu Pu! The film went through  hell as it traveled  from state to state, the projectionists had cut and butchered the picture, calling it indecent and disgusting,  It stirred up protesters standing in front of every venue with signs “Don’t see this Pu Pu!!!, And  “It’s the Devil’s Pu-Pu”.  I and the rest of the production and cast believed that this was some great free publicity, we all thought that now we were going bring home some ticket sales, but by the time the film got back to NY it was only one frame of celluloid!  They destroyed it, them bastards! My hopes of becoming a mainstream star once again wounded up in some garbage dump(s) across the U.S.A.
