Project: HUSH Casting Director: Perry Finley MONICA Female, Caucasian, Late 30's to early 40's. Mentally and physically weak as well as tired. Worn down from mistreatment from her husband as well as taking care of her child practically alone.
This is the picture I submitted. No agent would have ever put me up for this role becaue of my age. But I got the darn thing.
My audition for" Hush" was at 11:04 AM today, down at USC. I'm finally going to college! lol Actually, I have donated my body for research to USC I did it after visiting my mom in Sioux City, Iowa. She better just live forever and she's so mean , she probably will. I've saved my son or whoever would have to bury me at least $10,000 these days!! And the aggavation and tears and all that mushy stuff that goes along with funerals and weddings.. My scene was to read a bedtime story to my son. I am leaving him, abandoning him, running away from an abusive husband. So they wanted different facial and voice emotions in the reading of this sweet little story. It was about saying, "Goodnights" to the walls,the picture of a cow jumping over a moon and a bowl of mush on the table and a little old lady who keeps saying,"Hush",well just everything in the bedroom of the little boy's. Gosh , I remember when I had to be on location away from my son, Chance and well, it was easy. I just fell apart. Sobbing thru the whole thing. I've always been very good at changing from one emotion to another. The director Perry Finley called about a half hour ago. We are shooting on location and I will be first up cause I have been invited to the Long Beach Film Festival to answer questions from the audience. And Perry wants me to go. The Festival starts at 4 and goes on and on I'm told and Steve Nave a director, actor, producer and head of the Casting Workshop I've been going to is in charge and invited me. Of course the Filming takes precedence. Steve is alright with that. He is such a pro!
Here's me and Dee Dee, a sweet fan who works at the VA Hospital in Westwood, who I met at one of the last shows I did. this weekend is the weekend I'm doing it again/ Click on this Website and see who will be there besides June Lockhart and Lassie. I'm ok from my fall just a bruised knee. My mom told me when people started to fall they don't have much time left. My Mom scares me with these old wive's tales.
The dates are July 13th and 14th (Sat-Sun)

Here is sorta where I landed on my shoulder, knees, and hurt myself yester-day and I'm trying to keep my mind off hurting. And there is my little Kia that I love. I fell on those square pieces of walkway but a little higher up the road. I don't know how much I can write but here goes. I'm trying to remember all the famous people I have worked with. Yesterday I did a Classic Radio Show that is heard all over the world and I was trying to think of all the people I was working with when I was young and had no idea who they were and how lucky I was to even be in the same room with them. Franchot Tone in a "Hitchcock," Eve Arden in a "Man from Uncle," Stella Adler's brother played my father in a "Ben Casey."-Luther Adler. Lew Ayers played my father in "Ben Casey, "Frank Gorshin in "Hitchcock",Larry Hagman in "I Dream of Jeannie", Elaine Stritch in my first movie filmed in Cuba, Mercedes McCambridge played my mom, Bruce Dern, Diane Ladd,Warren Oates, Barbara Rush, Robert Blake, Ben Gazarra,David Jansen, Vince Edwards, James Arness, Robert Young, Burt Reynolds,Richard Chamberlin, Slim Pickens,Robert Wagner, Quinn Redeker an actor who wrote and got an Academy Award for "The Deer Hunter"- Gene Lyons, Steven Hill, Paul Burke, Raymond Burr, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Lee Majors, Peter Falk, Peter O'Toole, Robert Conrad, Ryan O'Neil, James Garner, Marilyn Maxwell, Amanda Blake, Nina Foch= who was a mean Bitch to me. Is it bad Karma to speak ill of the dead? I don't care ,she was really mean and nasty. All the above ladies mentioned were wonderful to me and helpful and nice. Well, I have to try to get to the Motion Picture Hospital and I'll continue later. I haven't felt any pain while trying to remember all of this. Thank you my dear little Web Site. lol
