Movie Mom on the Marx Brothers Council Podcast

Posted on November 5, 2021 at 9:14 am

I had a lot of fun talking to the Marx Brothers Council podcasters about getting kissed by Groucho Marx, having dinner with Gummo, and literally falling out of my chair with astonished laughter the first time I saw “A Night at the Opera.”

Rotten Tomatoes Designated Me a Top Critic!

Posted on December 3, 2020 at 12:24 pm

Copyright Rotten Tomatoes 2018
I’ve been a fan of Rotten Tomatoes since it started in 1998 and began adding my reviews to it shortly after. I check it several times every day. So it is one of the greatest honors of my life that I have been designated a “top critic!” That means my reviews will be highlighted on the site, along with those of so many of my favorite critics and friends. My deepest thanks to everyone at Rotten Tomatoes, especially those working so hard to make the site more inclusive and diverse.

Thanks to Hollywood Genes and Zoe Krainik for This Lovely Interview

Posted on October 10, 2019 at 3:32 pm

Zoe Krianik from the wonderful Hollywood Genes blog was kind enough to interview me.

An excerpt:

What is your earliest memory of watching a classic film? What did it do for you? Why do you remember it?

My dad says the first movie I ever saw in a theater was the Disney film Westward Ho the Wagons when I was four, and that after that I wanted to see a movie every day. Now I do! But the first film I remember seeing in a theater was another Disney film: Snow White. I instantly became a fan of Disney animation, musicals, and sitting in a dark room watching stories on a big screen.

Which is your favorite (fictional) film family and why?

The Sycamores in You Can’t Take it With You— because they are all so encouraging of each other’s dreams. Runners-up: the Marches in Little Women, the Winstons in Houseboat (who would not want to have Sophia Loren and Cary Grant as parents?), the Gilbreths in Cheaper by the Dozenand Belles on Their Toes, the Mackays in Please Don’t Eat the Daisies, and the Browns in National Velvet because Anne Revere is my favorite movie mother.
