I think that both Joan and Lauren would have improved any series, they were both articulate, highly intelligent ladies Although I never heard about Bacall being offered a role in Falcon Crest.

We all Nominated each other at my local gym, and I did it two days ago. I have been drawing my pension for twelve years and it didn't do me any harm, it was just like a refreshing cold shower. :D

No, not lucky, she was abysmal, not a clue how to play madcap Mame, hardly any voice, and what did shock me her dancing wasn't up to much either.

No, I thought that it was one of the worst pieces of miscasting ever. I agree with the critic who gave it a one word review, "Maimed!"
