I wish MERYL would film the Totie Fields story. She would be BRILLIANT.

Meryl wouldn't even need prosthetics or CGI. She would make you believe in amputation through the sheer genius of her ACTING!

Mike Douglas loved having Totie on his show. He was a putz and couldn't read cue cards but he had some interesting guest stars on his show.

You can't hide the hook.
One of the most devastating take downs in show biz history. With one line, Totie destroyed everything Simmons was attempting.

LMAO, I googled Totie Fields, and she looks unintentionally more frightening than the Joker especially when she has that maniacal grin on.

Meryl isn't Jewish enough for Totie Fields. This so NEEDS Maggie Gyllenhaal or Melanie Laurent.

At the time of her death, Totie Fields was in negotiations to do a remake of Moby Dick, in dual roles: both Ahab and the whale.

The clip at r8 is pretty damn funny. Is that Heath Ledger dressed as the JOKER?

You could at least call Kim Fields by her real name.
And it's TOOTIE not Totie.

Totie Fields is a legend and an icon. Comedians, male and female, still reference her as an inspiration, mimick her style and hair and reuse her schtick. As for her concert deals, she LEFT Columbia once the landmark $80 million deal she signed in the '60s was complete. Also, she ASKED to be let out of her Def Jam contract, but not before giving them a #1 album. So, you see, no one fired her, nitwits. And you're right--she's always had a round bubble butt, and she was known for having one when Kim Kardashian was still just a kid running around in her mommy and daddy's backyard with a pacifier, and J-Lo was just a young, unknown Puerto Rican chica in the Bronx. Totie will record when she's resurrected, sweetie. She does not need a label, but she could get signed to one whenever she's ready because she's Totie-ACADEMY-AWARD-NOMINATED-100-MILLION-RECORDS-SOLD-EVERY-TEEN-ACT-OF-TODAY-ON-HER-JOCK-FANS-ALL-OVER-THE-WORLD-$150-MILLION-WORTH-COMEDY CENTRAL-ICON-MORE-BILLBOARD-AWARDS-THAN-ANY-OTHER-ARTIST-SIGNER-OF-TWO-OF-THE-BIGGEST-RECORD-DEALS-IN-HISTORY-MOTHERFUCKING FIELDS.

r21 Did she know how to roller skate before she got the gig on FACTS OF LIFE or was it something she did specifically for that role?

Is it true she was the original Mrs. Fields of Mrs. Fields Cookies? And that too much product testing is what led to her diabetes?

I remember her being on TV a lot when I was a little kid in the mid-1960s and I liked her. Divine always reminded me of her.

She was the first comedienne I ever heard of. She introduced me to the invaluable word "comedienne."

Peter Marshall on "Hollywood Squares": "Do snails caress?"
Totie: "I never saw a horny snail."
Marshall: "Are they raising the prices on pay toilets?"
Totie: "I don't care, I just crawl under the door."
Mike Douglas: "Try this bacon"
Totie: "I can't eat pork....unless the pig has been circumcised."

She was on Mike Douglas once and told him "I only lose weight in my knobs." I was almost 10, and it was the funniest thing I had ever heard in my life.
