Janet didn't reach the heights that Pia Zadora did.
As far as the rise part, a friend was the musical director of the original "Dames at Sea". Pia Zadora was Bernadette Peter's replacement. She played about four performances before they found out she was actually 16. Apparently she was quite good, but lying about her age got her canned.
Considering the current backlash, poor AnnE.
Whoever has to endure Harvey Weinstein panting on top of her in return for having a brief shot at fame.
I think the the husband owns or owned The Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas.
nobody....she was like totally unknown and then boom she won a Golden Globe back when there wasn't much publicity about them. Granted I was a kid so I could be remembering this wrong but I think there was almost like hysteria when she won (like people openly shaking there head and going OMG! and booing) I wish it was on youtube. I remember her joyously making a speech while the crowd talked over her.
BTW they took the Golden Globes off the networks for like twenty years after this. It aired on cable and a lot of people wouldn't even show up.
Thank you R18, I needed that! Never saw the movie!
I found a long trailer for her Butterfly movie that won the golden globe for her, it looked rotten to the core.
