BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
How can they diss Denise Richard like that?There are way worse:Lucille Ball as MAMEElizabeth Taylor in A LITTLE NIGHT MUSICJeff
No! Not Denise Richards and her Oscar-worthy performance!You must be happy, Bill, that the haters did not put Paris on the list.(BTW, I liked Heston in TOUCH OF EVIL.)
Happy about PH not being there, but Richards' performance is, as you say, Oscar-worthy. There must be some mistake about putting her here.
They should take Denise out and insert the upcoming Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher.
Forget the title, but there was a movie about a summer romance with Shirly Booth. Seeing her in a bathing suit was a classic case of miscasting (and costuming) I can think of.
How about Barbra Streisand as a high price call girl in The Owl and the Pussycat.Or Denise Richards again as a Starship Commander in Starship Troopers.
Denise was outstanding in that one, too.
Good lord, why pick on Wayne and Rooney? THE CONQUEROR was a western with swords, and the Rooney character in TIFFANY'S was a farcical role anyway. It wouldn't have mattered who was cast. These dolts may not realize that in the old days, Asians were usually played by non-Asians, including Brando, Robinson, Muni, Donat, Karloff, Lorre, Guinness, even Woody Strode. Things have changed for the better, but history is history.
