Shirley MacLaine Knowledge Base
Who is this actor in the Coco Chanel film with Shirley Maclaine?
Its the 2008 Coco Chanel film, with Shirley Maclaine playing the "old" Coco. And someone else playing the "young" Coco... but I want to know who is the actress playing the young Coco's best friend. The one that goes to the beach with her and sees those old sailors, and often helps young Coco with her shop.. anyone know? I've looked everywhere!
According to Shirley Maclaine's book, "It's all in the Playing"?
When the acting teacher of Shirley Maclaine's daughter was burned beyond recognition in a head-on collision, Maclaine wondered, "why did she choose to die like that in such a horrible way." Do we really think that all those people who died in the Recent earthquake in China wished to die like that? Do we really choose our births and deaths?
Dream about Shirley MacLaine and Warren Beatty?
Had a dream about Shirley MacLaine last night. Luckily, in the dream, she was still going strong. Her brother, Warren Beatty, was in the dream, too. We were all at my old college dorm that, in the dream, MacLaine had lived in, too. We were getting along as if we were family. For some reason, I stepped on a dog who got very mad at me and started to growl (and also made me think of the phrase "let sleeping dogs lie." What do you think it means?
Shirley MacLaine is possibly the last star of the studio system who is still around and moreover still making films. MacLaine`s career has eclipsed Hollywood; disproving the adage (applied to MacLaine and Marilyn Monroe) that they were created by studio publicity and the glamour machine. MacLaine is not only a great comediennne. She is a bittersweet dramatic actress. And as we know she is an unsurmountable musical comedy star. I saw her perform live in Lake Tahoe in the Seventies when she probably was well into her fifties and she was great!!!!!!!!!! I had the privilege of interviewing her in Hollywood in 1972 when she had just finished filming `Being There` with Peter Sellers. I asked her about the controversial masturbation scene and she was unconventionally forthright. So what`s your favourite Maclaine film? Mine is `Some Came Running` and the thing I remember best- wait for it- that 18 inch waistline. But Shirl doesn`t believe she was a sex symbol/role model.
what film prop would you choose?
if you could have one object that appeared in a film what would it be? for me, Shirley MacLaine's cracked vanity mirror from The Apartment. Or maybe Jack Lemmon's bowler hat. Or maybe the jacket that Robert de Niro wears in Taxi Driver with Bickle written across the back.
What do you think of Shirley MacLaine's ideas?

Out On A Limb by Shirley MacLaine
I keep mentioning this book in answers in the mythology/folklore section so I thought I'd ask who all has read it and what they thought of it. I still cannot put a question in the mythology section! When yahoo offers me sections to choose mythology/folklore is not an option. Why? And, yes, I have tried to post from that section.
What is the movie called that stars Haley Joel Osment?
When I was a kid, Im 20 now. There was a movie that would come on TV starring shirley maclaine and I think Haley Joel Osment. It was a little boy and I think MaClaine in the movie had to take care of him. All I remember is the little boy sitting in the kitchen talking to MaClaine while she was drinking scotch, I think it was. Could you tell me what movie that is? I can't find anything. Thanks! God Bless.

Why doesn't Kim Novak make movies anymore?
Kim Novak, the actress from the movie Vertigo. Does anyone know why she retired? I saw pictures of her from 2004 and she is still gorgeous. It is beyond me why she isn't in movies anymore. She is in her mid 70s now but there are plenty of actresses her age like Jane Fonda and Shirley Maclaine who still work in movies. Why did Kim retire and does anyone have recent pictures?

In the film BEING THERE (1979), why do people think of Chance as Intelligent rather than thinking he's stupid?
Having lived his life as the gardener on a millionaire's estate, Chance (Peter Sellers) knows of the real world only what he has seen on TV. When his benefactor dies, Chance walks aimlessly into the streets of Washington D.C., where he is struck by a car owned by wealthy Eve Rand (Shirley MacLaine). Identifying himself, the confused man mutters "Chance...gardener," which Eve takes to be "Chauncey Gardiner." Eve takes him to her home to convalesce, and because Chance is so well-dressed and well-groomed, and because he speaks in such a cultured tone, everyone in her orbit assumes that "Chauncey Gardiner" must be a man of profound intelligence. No matter what he says, it is interpreted as a pearl of wisdom and insight. He rises to the top of Washington society, where his simplistic responses to the most difficult questions (responses usually related to his gardening experience) are highly prized by the town's movers and shakers. In fact, there is serious consideration given to running Chance as a presidential candidate. Both a modern fable and a political satire, Being There was based on the novel by Jerzy Kosinski and costars Melvyn Douglas, who won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar as Eve's aging power-broker husband.
I'm starting the Church and School of Endora--what do I need?
We have the ultimate goddess. After all you can read about Christ's miracles, or you can watch Endora's on Nick at Nite.

ENDORA! please note: all who oppose us will be transformed into lawn furniture and left to rust http://www.harpiesbizarre.com/ Do Xians have to suck the fun out of EVERYTHING?!?! They're worse than a biblical plague......
Why do liberals love despots like Fidel Castro?
Just listen to them gush: "Viva Fidel! Viva Che! Castro is the most honest and courageous politician I've ever met." Jesse Jackson "Meeting Fidel Castro were the eight most important hours of my life." Steven Spielberg. "Very selfless and moral. One of the world's wisest men." Oliver Stone "Cuba's Elvis." Dan Rather "A source of inspiration to the world." Naomi Campbell "Socialism works. I think Cuba can prove that." Chevy Chase "To be a poor child in Cuba may be better than being a poor child in the U.S." Eleanore Clift Other liberals who have visited Cuba and Castro include Robert Redford, Spike Lee, Sidney Pollack, Woody Harrelson, Danny Glover, Ed Asner, Shirley MacLaine, Alanis Morissette, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Kevin Costner. Apparently these useful idiots, as Lenin would have called them, are either ignorant of, or willing to ignore the real nature of Fidel Castro, this "extremely humane" dictator who is a homicidal communist brute. This is a man who has killed tens of thousands of his own citizens. He's killed over 30 Americans, he harbors fugitives from U.S. justice, he has supported terrorism and narco-terrorism throughout the hemisphere, causing untold thousands of other citizens' deaths. Scott: Saddam? Please! Have you been living in a cave lately? We KILLED him. Now, if liberals are willing to kill Castro, I will gladly concede your point ;-)
Anyone see Can-Can on Fox Movie channel today (details)?
It was the musical movie with Frank Sinatra and Shirley MacLaine. I was doing things around the house and didn't see the whole Adam & Eve ballet scene but I saw the last part of it. The choreography looked just like Bob Fosse's work, but his name is not listed for it on the imdb website. Anybody have any info on this?
last one useless info part 2 funny or not?
A group of frogs is called an army. A group of rhinos is called a crash. A group of kangaroos is called a mob. A group of whales is called a pod. A group of geese is called a gaggle. A group of ravens is called a murder. A group of officers is called a mess. A group of larks is called an exaltation. A group of owls is called a parliaThe 80s song “Rosanna” from the Eighties was written about Rosanna Arquette, the actress. Warren Beatty and Shirley MacLaine are brother and sister. Starfish don’t have brains. Shrimps’ hearts are in their heads. The derivation of the word trivia comes from the Latin “tri-” + “via”, which means three streets. This is because in ancient times, at an intersection of three streeets in Rome (or some other Italian place), they would have a type of kiosk where ancillary information was listed. You might be interested in it, you might not, hence they were bits of “trivia.”
Do you think Will Ferrell is funny?
I like this man. I want to like this guy. He seems so nice but I honestly don't see think he is funny. He is very un-funny in my opinion. I walked out on "Bewitched" the movie because of him. That could have been such a cute movie. They had Shirley MacLaine as Endora and Nicole Kidman was the perfect Samantha! I don't think any other actress could have pulled it off but this guy was such a complete A with two S's.

e.e. cummings poem in movie "In Her Shoes"?
Saw an pretty fair movie on HBO, called "In Her Shoes" starring Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette and Shirley MacLaine. An e.e. cummings poem plays a prominent role in the movie at the end, bringing two sisters together. Anybody know the poem's name?
Can Sybil (Cybil) Commit Mass Suicide?
If a person with Multiple Personalities Disorder kills themself, do all the other personalities go to Hell, too? If Sybil is a Buddhist, does she just keep coming back over and over and over again really fast like a record album skipping, or maybe like Shirley MacLaine on crack? And if you're a schizophrenic, are you ever truly alone? Can you literally rob Peter to pay Paul? Or go f*ck yourself? And are you cheating on your wife/hubby when the other personality takes over or is she/he cheating on you? Did Norman Bates have an Oedipus complex, or was he just a typical stupid little MF? I sure ask a lot of questions for two or ten lousy points, don't I? Or am I only asking a half-question apiece here for all my different personalities, in which case Yahoo owes me back 2.5 points. I obviously have too much time on my thirty-two hands. God only knows who will answer the email, but I'll really try to personally. If not, try again in a moment or two. I may be back eventually.
