Polly holliday children -

One classic TV show we’ll never forget is Alice! The 1976 series made Diane Ladd, Linda Lavin, Polly Holliday, Beth Howland and Celia Weston stars. While recalling the sitcom, Linda says her role as Alice Hyatt, a widow with a young son, helped her get into the women’s movement.

“I was asked to speak at events,” the A-lister told The Los Angeles Times in December 2013. “I had never been asked to speak in public before. I was a musical comedy actress. I was invited to labor rallies and ERA marches. I got educated. I was invited to join the National Commission on Working Women.”

Linda’s career was quickly taking off and it was great she got to touch on those issues in Alice. “When Mel hired a waiter and paid him more than us, I organized [the waitresses] Flo and Vera and said we are on strike,” she remembered.

For Diane, her journey was different. She played Flo in the movie version of the show, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Any More. But since Polly already snagged the role as the hilarious waitress, Diane was left to play Isabelle. In a 1980 interview with the Desert Sun, Diane excitingly revealed how she wanted her character to portrayed.

“I’m going to do something on the show that I did in the movie wearing a cross,” the Chinatown star said. “In the movie, I wore a cross made out of safety pins, and I can’t do that again. So I’ve had the prop department make one by soldering a bunch of pennies together. I always wear a cross of one kind or another.”

The three-time Oscar nominee added that she took on the role because she wanted to provide for her now 53-year-old daughter, Laura Dern. “I did it for this,” she said. “I have a 13-year-old daughter and for the next few years, I need security and I want to be around, I want to have a regular schedule, I don’t want to have to go out of town. I did it for all those reasons.” Laura must be so proud of her mom!

Following the fourth season, Flo had only short-lived success on a titular spinoff. Yet, Polly, 82, didn’t kiss anyone’s grits for roles. She’s done films such as Gremlins, played Jill’s mom on Home Improvement and hit the stage for revivals including Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

After nine seasons of serving up chili at Mel’s Diner as Alice, Linda, 82, wasn’t one to rehash that kind of work. So she returned to the theater, winning a Tony for Broadway Bound and starring in productions of Gypsy, The Diary of Anne Frank and The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife.

She played Flo in the show’s inspiration, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, so Diane, 84, was made to order to fill in for Polly as Belle. But after two seasons, movies were back on her menu. she appeared in pics from Primary Colors to Joy and hot Oscar nods costarring with daughter Laura Dern in Wild at Heart and Rambling Rose.

While Jolene traded in truckling for busing tables, Celia, 68, had the drive to do a myriad of things after replacing Diane. She’s been in movies like Dead Man Walking, returned to TV for Modern Family and American Horror Story and also hit the stage, including a Tony-nominated turn in The Last Night of Ballyhoo.

#Fact1Her first Broadway appearance following her departure from long-term TV series hits ("Alice" and "Flo") was the comedy "Arsenic and Old Lace," alongside another actress (Jean Stapleton) who was also trying to get some distance from her own long series of TV hits ("All in the Family" and "Archie Bunker's Place"). Interestingly, before "Arsenic" landed on Broadway, Stapleton appeared in the national tour with Marion Ross in the Holliday role. Ross also was aiming for her first Broadway role after a long TV run in "Happy Days" but the producers re-cast the role for Holliday when Ross was unable to be based in New York.2Holliday attended Alabama College for Women (now the University of Montevallo, a small liberal arts college just below Birmingham, Alabama).3Wore a red wig during her time on Alice (1976).4Polly is a member of The Episcopal Church and was featured in an ad campaign on www.iamepiscopalian.org.5Close friends with actor Dustin Hoffman. They worked together in All the President's Men (1976) and Hoffman tried to get her cast as a producer in Tootsie (1982).6Was nominated for Broadway's 1990 Tony Award as best actress (featured role - play) for playing Big Mama in a revival of Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.7Polly's huge, award-winning success as Flo on Alice (1976) did not endear her to the titular star of the show, Linda Lavin, who was increasingly irritated at having the attention and the show stolen from under her. It was reportedly due to this friction that Polly was encouraged to leave for her own spin-off series Flo (1980), which did not succeed. Alice (1976) remained a hit for many years after.8Played Flo on the tv show Alice (1976), which was based on Diane Ladd's character from the movie Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974) Both were nominated for the highest awards in their medium for playing Flo, Polly for an Emmy and Diane for the Oscar. They both lost.

Polly Holliday Is Matron in Premiere of "New" Robert Anderson Play, Free and Clear, in Florida May 7-30

Performing with Holliday are John Krich, Bryant Mason and Bryan Barter. Eberle Thomas directs.

Asolo artistic director Howard Millman said in statement, "It's a homecoming of sorts for Polly Holliday and John Krich, who performed at the Asolo in the early years. We are proud and happy to also welcome back two fine actors who are graduates of the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training, Bryant Mason and Bryan Barter. I am delighted to have this cast assembled for such an exciting and noble project."

Alabama-born Holliday enjoyed great success in the 1970s on TV as the gum-crackin', salty waitress , Flo, on the TV sitcom, "Alice." She even snagged her own spinoff, "Flo."

She was Tony-nominated for playing Big Mama to Kathleen Turner's Maggie the Cat in 1990's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. She was the lonely small-town schoolteacher in Picnic in Broadway in 1994.

At Asolo, she appeared in Shaw's Candida and as Bananas in The House of Blue Leaves. As previously reported by Playbill On-Line, Free and Clear had a brief regional showing 21 years ago at Long Wharf Theatre, though the nature of that staging is not fully clear. Asolo has billed its new staging as the play's world premiere and characterized the Long Wharf staging as an "evaluation production" and a "tryout," terms not usually used in resident theatre.

*

Anderson, who is 86, is best known for his plays Tea and Sympathy, I Never Sang for My Father and You Know I Can't Hear You When the Water's Running.

Performances of Free and Clear will play May 7 30, at the Florida State University Center for the Performing Arts in the Jane B. Cook Theatre.

"We're honored to bring Free and Clear to the stage in full production for the first time," Millman said. "This is a very exciting project. We're presenting a new play created by one of the outstanding playwrights of our time..."

According to the Asolo announcement, "Free and Clear is the story of a family. Two brothers return home for their mother's birthday. Each has dreams and desires of his own which do not fall in line with his parents' plans. What obligations do children have to their parents? How much can a parent expect of their children? Join these characters on their journey as they search for answers."

According to producer Richard G. Fallon, who has a long history with Asolo and Sarasota theatre, who is presenting the play with Millman's company, "Producing this play has been a consummate mission of mine for the past 10 years. I am fulfilling a promise I first made to Robert's agent, Audrey Wood, before she died and then to Robert Anderson, with whom I have become very close. Audrey deeply believed in Robert and his work. I promised to help get this play produced in a way that will truly do it justice. That's why now, at a time when Robert's health is failing, it is so very important to see my promise fulfilled soon. We have a responsibility to produce the play both for Robert and for the play's relevance as his last work. My belief is that, because of the course of events that brought it here, the play was destined for the Asolo stage."

Robert Anderson, a native New Yorker, is one of America's major playwrights to chronicle mid-century American life. Anderson received The Edward Albee Last Frontier Playwright Award (1997) and The William Inge Lifetime Achievement Award for a Playwright (1985), among other honors. Educated at Harvard University (magna cum laude), Anderson's work includes the play Silent Night, Lonely Night, as well as screenplays (including the transfers of "Tea and Sympathy" and "I Never Sang for My Father," radio plays, teleplays and two novels.

Fallon was given permission by Anderson and his family to bring Free and Clear to the stage. Fallon, who founded the Asolo State Theatre in 1965, the FSU/Asolo Conservatory of Professional Actor Training, the Department of Theatre at FSU and the development of the School of Theatre at FSU, first contacted Eberle Thomas, who in turn went to the Asolo with the idea.

"When Richard Fallon and Eberle Thomas approached us about doing Robert's play, we knew it was an excellent opportunity and it had to be done," explained Howard Millman, in a statement.

Who is Polly Holliday?

Polly Dean Holliday was born in Jasper, Alabama USA, on 2 July 1937 – her zodiac sign is Cancer, and she holds American nationality. She’s a retired actress, who hasn’t been active in the entertainment industry since 2010.

The movie was a hit, winning 11 awards, including an Oscar for Best Make-up, while it was nominated for 10 other awards.

Early life and education

Polly was raised in Jasper alongside her brother Doyle, by their mother Velma Mabell Holliday (nee Cain) who was a housewife, and their father Ernest Sullivan Holliday who worked as a truck driver.

She was then invited to play supporting characters in several mediocre movies, such as the 1974 crime drama “The Catamount Killing”, the 1975 comedy “W. W. and the Dixie Dancekings”, and the 1975 romantic drama “Distance”.

Pakula, starring Dustin Hoffman, Robert Redford and Jack Warden.

Love life and husband

Polly was amongst the most secretive of actresses while still active in the film industry, and to this day hasn’t spoken of any men (or women) whom she has perhaps been with.

Because of her age, there are many people who believe that she was once married, that it ended in a divorce after a couple of years, and that Polly has kept all the details hidden from the media’s attention. Some claim that she’s today married to a non-celebrity man, but this hasn’t been confirmed either.

There are others who claim that she’s lesbian, and that this is why she’s so secretive in regards of her love life, while still an active actress. Polly hasn’t addressed the rumors regarding her sexual orientation.

As of June 2021, she seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.

Hobbies and other interests

Polly’s highly religious, and is a member of the Episcopal Church.

She has been interested in politics since her 20s, and was a supporter of the Democrats for several decades, however, in 2019, she turned to the Republican Party, because she became dissatisfied with the Democrats.

Polly’s acting career had taken her all around the US, and she also got to visit various European and Asian countries.

It didn’t take her long to fall in love with travelling, and it quickly became her favorite hobby.

She has been into reading books since her early teenage years, and has always preferred those based on true events over all others. Polly has read various books regarding the history of the US, and the First and the Second World Wars.

She has her own favorite actors and actresses, some of whom are the late Heath Ledger, the late Robin Williams, and Meryl Streep; her favorite movies include “The Dark Knight”, “Good Will Hunting” and “Kramer vs. Kramer”.

Age, height and net worth

Polly’s age is 83. Her hair was once blonde, now gray, and she has brown eyes. Her height is 5ft 7ins (1.7m) and she weighs around 143lbs (65kgs).

As of June 2021, her net worth has been estimated at over $2 million.

Polly Holliday Is Matron in Premiere of "New" Robert Anderson Play, Free and Clear, in Florida May 7-30

Performing with Holliday are John Krich, Bryant Mason and Bryan Barter. Eberle Thomas directs.

Asolo artistic director Howard Millman said in statement, "It's a homecoming of sorts for Polly Holliday and John Krich, who performed at the Asolo in the early years. We are proud and happy to also welcome back two fine actors who are graduates of the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training, Bryant Mason and Bryan Barter. I am delighted to have this cast assembled for such an exciting and noble project."

Alabama-born Holliday enjoyed great success in the 1970s on TV as the gum-crackin', salty waitress , Flo, on the TV sitcom, "Alice." She even snagged her own spinoff, "Flo."

She was Tony-nominated for playing Big Mama to Kathleen Turner's Maggie the Cat in 1990's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. She was the lonely small-town schoolteacher in Picnic in Broadway in 1994.

At Asolo, she appeared in Shaw's Candida and as Bananas in The House of Blue Leaves. As previously reported by Playbill On-Line, Free and Clear had a brief regional showing 21 years ago at Long Wharf Theatre, though the nature of that staging is not fully clear. Asolo has billed its new staging as the play's world premiere and characterized the Long Wharf staging as an "evaluation production" and a "tryout," terms not usually used in resident theatre.

*

Anderson, who is 86, is best known for his plays Tea and Sympathy, I Never Sang for My Father and You Know I Can't Hear You When the Water's Running.

Performances of Free and Clear will play May 7 30, at the Florida State University Center for the Performing Arts in the Jane B. Cook Theatre.

"We're honored to bring Free and Clear to the stage in full production for the first time," Millman said. "This is a very exciting project. We're presenting a new play created by one of the outstanding playwrights of our time..."

According to the Asolo announcement, "Free and Clear is the story of a family. Two brothers return home for their mother's birthday. Each has dreams and desires of his own which do not fall in line with his parents' plans. What obligations do children have to their parents? How much can a parent expect of their children? Join these characters on their journey as they search for answers."

According to producer Richard G. Fallon, who has a long history with Asolo and Sarasota theatre, who is presenting the play with Millman's company, "Producing this play has been a consummate mission of mine for the past 10 years. I am fulfilling a promise I first made to Robert's agent, Audrey Wood, before she died and then to Robert Anderson, with whom I have become very close. Audrey deeply believed in Robert and his work. I promised to help get this play produced in a way that will truly do it justice. That's why now, at a time when Robert's health is failing, it is so very important to see my promise fulfilled soon. We have a responsibility to produce the play both for Robert and for the play's relevance as his last work. My belief is that, because of the course of events that brought it here, the play was destined for the Asolo stage."

Robert Anderson, a native New Yorker, is one of America's major playwrights to chronicle mid-century American life. Anderson received The Edward Albee Last Frontier Playwright Award (1997) and The William Inge Lifetime Achievement Award for a Playwright (1985), among other honors. Educated at Harvard University (magna cum laude), Anderson's work includes the play Silent Night, Lonely Night, as well as screenplays (including the transfers of "Tea and Sympathy" and "I Never Sang for My Father," radio plays, teleplays and two novels.

Fallon was given permission by Anderson and his family to bring Free and Clear to the stage. Fallon, who founded the Asolo State Theatre in 1965, the FSU/Asolo Conservatory of Professional Actor Training, the Department of Theatre at FSU and the development of the School of Theatre at FSU, first contacted Eberle Thomas, who in turn went to the Asolo with the idea.

"When Richard Fallon and Eberle Thomas approached us about doing Robert's play, we knew it was an excellent opportunity and it had to be done," explained Howard Millman, in a statement.

Missing Children: A Mother's Story (1982)   3/53/53/53/53/5

Mare Winningham in Missing Children: A Mother's Story (1982)

Mare's Missing Children Nightmare

Kate Bradshaw (Mare Winningham - Philomena) has had a tough life thanks to not being able to read and marrying a man who abused her, stole her money and then cleared off, but at least she has her three children who she adores. It is why she reluctantly ends up going to Welfare to seek help as she can't feed them and it is there that, social worker, Lander Hughes (Noble Willingham - The Children Nobody Wanted) notices that Kate can't read and sends her to Mary Gertrude Tyler (Polly Holliday - The Heartbreak Kid) who runs the Children's Rescue Mission. Believing that the sympathetic Miss Tyler will take her children in temporarily whilst she sorts things out they head to court to sign some documents which Kate believes are to permit Miss Tyler to obtain medical care for the children. But when a few days later Kate returns to the Mission to visit her children she discovers they have been placed with a family and there is nothing she can do about it, especially someone in her circumstances unless she is fortunate enough to find some one who will help her take on Miss Tyler in court.

I first watched Mare Winningham in "St. Elmo's Fire", one of my all time favourite movies, but somehow despite an enjoyable performance I felt that she didn't seem to fit with the actors around her. Some years later I discovered a series of made for TV movies which she had made at the start of the 80s and it all made sense because Mare Winningham's gift, along with being a good actress, is sweet likeability; she plays characters in a way which allows an audience to sympathise for them. And that is what we get from her in "Missing Children: A Mother's Story" as right from the start we sympathize with her as Kate because of that natural likeability, especially in the early scenes where we see her love for her children.

Polly Holliday in Missing Children: A Mother's Story (1982)

Anyway beyond another very good performance from Mare Winningham "Missing Children: A Mother's Story" could quite easily be inspired by a true story although I don't remember seeing mention of it. It has that feel of an old injustice being dramatized, the sort which many years later gets brought to the fore when someone digs through old adoption records and discovers some heinous acts of those who were in authority and abused their positions. But at the same time it is a story which has that element of moral justice thrown in to the mix as we see Kate find some compassionate lawyers who help her fight her corner. It is entertaining enough with an okay blend of humour and drama to stop it from being all one level.

But "Missing Children: A Mother's Story" is not without problems and in order to make the story work in the space of 90 minutes some characters are poorly written. Take Kate's husband; he is written as such a stereotype that all we get is a womanizer, who robs and beats his wife. Elsewhere we have the great Scatman Crothers typecast in a handyman type role. In fact whilst there are these issues the calibre of the cast which includes Anne Haney, Jane Wyatt and Polly Holliday help make "Missing Children: A Mother's Story" work.

What this all boils down to is that "Missing Children: A Mother's Story" is one of those movies which is entertaining for those who enjoy tales of good people fighting injustice. And with Mare Winningham in the lead role it is an effective drama despite some issues.

One classic TV show we’ll never forget is Alice! The 1976 series made Diane Ladd, Linda Lavin, Polly Holliday, Beth Howland and Celia Weston stars. While recalling the sitcom, Linda says her role as Alice Hyatt, a widow with a young son, helped her get into the women’s movement.

“I was asked to speak at events,” the A-lister told The Los Angeles Times in December 2013. “I had never been asked to speak in public before. I was a musical comedy actress. I was invited to labor rallies and ERA marches. I got educated. I was invited to join the National Commission on Working Women.”

Linda’s career was quickly taking off and it was great she got to touch on those issues in Alice. “When Mel hired a waiter and paid him more than us, I organized [the waitresses] Flo and Vera and said we are on strike,” she remembered.

For Diane, her journey was different. She played Flo in the movie version of the show, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Any More. But since Polly already snagged the role as the hilarious waitress, Diane was left to play Isabelle. In a 1980 interview with the Desert Sun, Diane excitingly revealed how she wanted her character to portrayed.

“I’m going to do something on the show that I did in the movie wearing a cross,” the Chinatown star said. “In the movie, I wore a cross made out of safety pins, and I can’t do that again. So I’ve had the prop department make one by soldering a bunch of pennies together. I always wear a cross of one kind or another.”

The three-time Oscar nominee added that she took on the role because she wanted to provide for her now 53-year-old daughter, Laura Dern. “I did it for this,” she said. “I have a 13-year-old daughter and for the next few years, I need security and I want to be around, I want to have a regular schedule, I don’t want to have to go out of town. I did it for all those reasons.” Laura must be so proud of her mom!

Following the fourth season, Flo had only short-lived success on a titular spinoff. Yet, Polly, 82, didn’t kiss anyone’s grits for roles. She’s done films such as Gremlins, played Jill’s mom on Home Improvement and hit the stage for revivals including Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

After nine seasons of serving up chili at Mel’s Diner as Alice, Linda, 82, wasn’t one to rehash that kind of work. So she returned to the theater, winning a Tony for Broadway Bound and starring in productions of Gypsy, The Diary of Anne Frank and The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife.

She played Flo in the show’s inspiration, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, so Diane, 84, was made to order to fill in for Polly as Belle. But after two seasons, movies were back on her menu. she appeared in pics from Primary Colors to Joy and hot Oscar nods costarring with daughter Laura Dern in Wild at Heart and Rambling Rose.

Missing Children: A Mother's Story (1982)   3/53/53/53/53/5

Mare Winningham in Missing Children: A Mother's Story (1982)

Mare's Missing Children Nightmare

Kate Bradshaw (Mare Winningham - Philomena) has had a tough life thanks to not being able to read and marrying a man who abused her, stole her money and then cleared off, but at least she has her three children who she adores. It is why she reluctantly ends up going to Welfare to seek help as she can't feed them and it is there that, social worker, Lander Hughes (Noble Willingham - The Children Nobody Wanted) notices that Kate can't read and sends her to Mary Gertrude Tyler (Polly Holliday - The Heartbreak Kid) who runs the Children's Rescue Mission. Believing that the sympathetic Miss Tyler will take her children in temporarily whilst she sorts things out they head to court to sign some documents which Kate believes are to permit Miss Tyler to obtain medical care for the children. But when a few days later Kate returns to the Mission to visit her children she discovers they have been placed with a family and there is nothing she can do about it, especially someone in her circumstances unless she is fortunate enough to find some one who will help her take on Miss Tyler in court.

I first watched Mare Winningham in "St. Elmo's Fire", one of my all time favourite movies, but somehow despite an enjoyable performance I felt that she didn't seem to fit with the actors around her. Some years later I discovered a series of made for TV movies which she had made at the start of the 80s and it all made sense because Mare Winningham's gift, along with being a good actress, is sweet likeability; she plays characters in a way which allows an audience to sympathise for them. And that is what we get from her in "Missing Children: A Mother's Story" as right from the start we sympathize with her as Kate because dark charizard 1st edition holo that natural likeability, especially in the early scenes where we see her love for her children.

Polly Holliday <b>polly holliday children</b> Missing Children: A Mother's Story (1982)

Anyway beyond another very good performance from Mare Winningham "Missing Children: A Mother's Story" could quite easily be inspired by a true story although I don't remember seeing mention of it. It has that feel of an old injustice being dramatized, the sort which many years later polly holliday children brought to the fore when someone digs through old adoption records and discovers some heinous acts of those who were in authority and abused their positions. But at the same time it is a story which has that element of moral justice thrown in to the mix as we see Kate find some compassionate lawyers who help her fight her corner. It is entertaining enough with an okay blend of humour and drama to stop it from being all one level.

But "Missing Children: A Mother's Story" is not without problems and in order to make the story work in the space of 90 minutes some characters are poorly written. Take Kate's husband; he is written as such a stereotype that all we get is a womanizer, who robs and beats his wife. Elsewhere we have the great Scatman Crothers typecast in a handyman type role. In fact whilst there are these issues the calibre of the cast which includes Anne Haney, Jane Wyatt and Polly Holliday help make "Missing Children: A Mother's Story" work.

What this all boils down to is that "Missing Children: A Mother's Story" is one of those movies which is entertaining for those who enjoy tales of good people fighting injustice. And with Mare Winningham in the lead role it walmart money card account login an effective drama despite some issues.

#Fact1Her first Broadway appearance following her departure from long-term TV series hits ("Alice" and "Flo") was the comedy "Arsenic and Old Lace," alongside another actress (Jean Stapleton) who was also trying to get some distance from her own long series of TV hits ("All in the Family" and "Archie Polly holliday children Place"). Interestingly, before "Arsenic" landed on Broadway, Stapleton appeared in the national tour with Marion Ross in the Holliday role. Ross also was aiming for her first Broadway role after a long TV run in "Happy Days" but the producers re-cast the role for Holliday when Ross was unable to be based in New York.2Holliday attended Alabama College for Women (now the University of Montevallo, a small liberal arts college just below Birmingham, Alabama).3Wore a red wig during her time on Alice (1976).4Polly is a member of The Episcopal Church and was featured in an ad campaign on www.iamepiscopalian.org.5Close friends with actor Dustin Hoffman. They worked together in All the President's Men (1976) and Hoffman tried to get her cast as a producer in Tootsie (1982).6Was nominated for Broadway's 1990 Tony Award as best actress (featured role - play) for playing Big Mama in a revival of Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.7Polly's huge, award-winning success as Flo on Alice (1976) did not endear her to the titular star of the show, Linda Lavin, who was increasingly irritated at having the attention and the show stolen from under her. It was reportedly due to this friction that Polly was encouraged to leave for her own spin-off series Flo (1980), which did not succeed. Galaxy backpack victoria secret pink (1976) remained a hit for many years after.8Played Flo on the tv show Alice (1976), which was based on Diane Ladd's character from the movie Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974) Both were nominated for the highest awards in their medium for playing Flo, Polly for an Emmy and Diane for the Oscar.

One classic TV show we’ll never forget is Alice! The 1976 series made Diane Ladd, polly holliday children Lavin, Polly Holliday, Beth Howland and Celia Weston stars. While recalling the sitcom, Linda says her role as Alice Hyatt, a widow with a young son, helped her get into the women’s movement.

“I was asked to speak at events,” the A-lister told The Los Angeles Times in December 2013. “I had never been asked to speak in public before. I was a musical comedy actress. I was invited to labor rallies and ERA marches. I got educated. I was invited to join the National Commission on Working Women.”

Linda’s career was quickly taking off and it was great she got to touch on those issues in Alice. “When Mel hired a waiter and paid him more than us, I organized [the waitresses] Flo and Vera and said we are on strike,” she remembered.

For Diane, her journey was different. She played Flo in the movie version of the show, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Any More. But since Polly already snagged the role as the hilarious waitress, Diane was left to play Isabelle. In a 1980 interview with the Desert Sun, Diane excitingly revealed how she wanted her character to portrayed.

“I’m going to do something on the show that I did in the movie wearing a cross,” the Chinatown star said. “In the movie, I wore a cross made out of safety pins, and I can’t do that again. So I’ve had the prop department make one by soldering a bunch of pennies together. I always wear a cross of one kind or another.”

The three-time Oscar nominee added that she took on the role because she wanted to provide for her now 53-year-old daughter, Laura Dern. “I did it for this,” she said. “I have a 13-year-old daughter and for the next few years, I need security and I want to be around, I want to have a regular schedule, I don’t want to have to go out of town. I did it for all those reasons.” Laura must be so proud of her mom!
