Mind The Gap: Marie Osmond Morphs Into Everyone Else Comments (0)

Madonna-Marie-Osmond

This is fun to watch—Marie Osmond aping great gay icons—but some are more miss than hit. She's great as Marilyn, looks a bit Lisa Rinna as Elizabeth Taylor, is PERFECTION as Elsa Lanchester and then for Madonna, well, the eyes are way too intense and the final shot was done in Swept Away-style color. I think she's more Kate McKinnon above.

Below, see some of the work of Kim Goodwin, who is regardless quite the artist with warpaint...

Eli WallachEli Wallach, one of the most versatile and prolific actors in movie history, has died at 98.

The list of movie-loving household names with whom he worked in his 50-plus-year film career includes everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Al Pacino.

Tiffeni-2009061442018-eliwallachtiffany-originalWallach was perhaps best known for his role as “Tuco” in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), but also made big impressions in films as diverse as Baby Doll (1956), The Misfits (1961), Lord Jim (1965) and in the otherwise pedestrian The Godfather: Part III (1990).

His final feature film, shot well into his nineties, appears to have been Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010).

Wallach's stage work is as revered as his work in film; he appeared with Jackson in innumerable productions.

I never met Mr. Wallach, but did spot him at—of all places—a Madonna photo exhibit; he was a family friend of photographer Richard Corman. I just re-watched The Misfits and just saw The Godfather: Part III for the first time, both in the past week.

Marilyn Monroe

An eight-ton, stainless steel likeness of Marilyn Monroe was unceremoniously hauled to the dump in China after having been commissioned and put on display in front of a business center for a mere six months. This woman just can not get a break.

Marilyn Monroe would have been 88 years old today. (I was going to post a video of Jimmy James singing “Happy Birthday” as MM, but couldn't find one!)

Lady-gaga-madonna

Luckily, this "Madonna" autograph comes with a certificate of authenticity. This case of mistaken identity reminds me of the time when a (famous) picture of Madonna from her 1992 Sex book was thought to be a long-lost Marilyn Monroe nude...and was authenticated by a Marilyn Monroe expert!

Charles Casillo has released an almost completely new (100-plus fresh pages) version of his '99 novel The Marilyn Diaries, in which he imagines how an MM journal might read.

A sample:

"[Elizabeth Taylor] stuck out her ass in my face and said, 'I'm just making sure my panties don't ride up, honey. I don't want to ruin the lines in my dress.'

"'Oh, don't worry about that, dear,' I replied, 'Your body already does that.'"
