She handled it VERY well. She did not blow a fit, she was firm in her refusal and was very pleasant to Sajack and Edwards, who were quite funny talking to the studio audience after Dickinson left.

She's a classy broad.

I always liked her and now I think I love her. And she did keep it down to an agreeable slow boil and I think the reasons she gave later in the MR interview are and were and continue to be perfectly valid.

Where has this footage been? I've heard about this for years, never knew this footage existed. I'm guessing Angie was fearful of any JFK relationship mentioning. She once agreed to write her autobiography, but eventually decided against it and returned the advance. I heard her once say in an interview that she had been keeping a diary, but burned it when she and Bacharach hired live-in help after their daughter was born.

They got here there on the pretext that she would be in conversation with Brian DePalma. I loved the moment where she said ...

"Uh, I can answer that. No, he's not."

Agreed. And her interactions with the crew beforehand show her to be polite, professional, sensible and brisk. She also doesn't make a fuss when she finds out DePalma is running 10 minutes late (supposedly), and even suggests to the makeup guy that he wait so he doesn't have to touch her up again in 10 minutes.

I like that even from the beginning she states her boundaries. Like r21 said - polite, professional, sensible and brisk. She gets to the point. Her face though when she hears "This is Your Life" basically is HELL NO.

Angie was likely propositioned by producers in Hollywood, but she clearly didn't allow herself to be mistreated.

Wow, truly a "classy broad" her whole life. I once heard a rumor that someone asked her what sex was like with JFK and she responded, "It was the best 2 minutes of my life".

Ralph Edwards, New York Times, 1987 . . .

Not all of those experiences were pleasurable. 'Lowell Thomas gave me my worst evening,' Mr. Edwards recalled. 'He was master of ceremonies at an event at the old Astor Hotel ballroom in New York. After it had started, I walked in with an NBC camera, a 'This Is Your Life' book under my arm, and went up to him and said, 'Tonight, Lowell Thomas, this is your life!' He said, 'This is a sinister conspiracy.' The show went downhill from there. As I took him up toward the stage, I said to him, 'You're going to enjoy this.' He said, 'I doubt it very much.' And he didn't.'

Mr. Edwards said that in all the years the show was on the air, he knew of only one guest who was tipped off in advance. 'Gloria Swanson found out about it and called me the night before she was supposed to be on,' Mr. Edwards said. 'Her sister had inadvertently told her that she was arriving in Los Angeles. So I said to Gloria, 'All right, will you come to the show anyhow and expose that to the audience? We'll see how it works.' The rating was only so-so for that show.'

When I was a young gayling I was friends with the founder of a major recording studio in the 60's. She was friends with Angie when she was married to Burt Bacharach who was under contract to the studio. She knew them both well. She told me Angie was a "saint " Bacharach was a "sumofabitch" She said Angie was a great mother taking care of their retarded daughter. The marriage broke up when Angie caught Burt " schtuping "their retarded daughter. She added Burt also had a thing for underage black girls. Like around 12 yo. She said he was a real putz.

I saw Burt on one of the holiday skating shows. They were rehearsing the songs that Boitano and friends would be skating to. He was with one of the Isley Brothers and he was in the studio with the Isley who has the really bushy eyebrows. While he was singing, Bacharach kissed him on the shoulder several times... I thought that it was odd. I know that folks in the entertainment industry are touchy feely an all, but the way that he kissed him was too intimate for television, let alone a cheesefest skating show.

I've always heard she's a much smarter person than you would think given her screen image.

Fun fact: she's close friends with Betty White. When White was developing "The Betty White Show," about an aging TV actress, White wanted to make the protagonist the star of a scifi show, since she was a huge fan of them in real life. (She loved Star Trek and Space: 1999.) The network told her that would be prohibitively expensive, so instead she had her character be the star of a TV show called "Undercover Woman" as a tribute to her friend Angie's "Police Woman." (Unfortunately, "The Betty White Show" was not very good, and folded after airing just a few episodes.)

In the Rocca interview she has charm and wit and quiet confidence and perspective, and no hint of a made up character playing herself, and she even looks great (87 at the time of the 2919 interview.)

Angie was great and even Oscar worthy in Dressed To Kill. I saw it again recently and was surprised by how little she has to say in the film. A lot of it (like that wonderful museum sequence) is all said with her eyes and facial expressions. She says that, in the original script, De Palma had filled that scene with voice overs from her character, so that she'd always know exactly what was going on and what she was thinking every step of the way. When the film was finished, she asked when they were going to record the voice overs and De Palma told her that they didn't need to do it, because her face had said everything. Pure visual storytelling.

Didn't know about the voiceover--that would have really changed the tone.

That they blacklisted her from "The Tonight Show" because of this fiasco show how the business ALWAYS was shitty, and especially so to women.

And she's the one who's still alive. HA! Fuck you, Bob Hope, inconvenienced because he was heading to the studio to be a guest for her "Life." And fuck you, Johnny.

Angie poured so much time and love into her daughter--it must have been even harder for her than most mothers of suicides when her daughter killed herself.

No mention of Big Bad Mama till now? She shows her tits and lets Captain Kirk fuck her.

She's definitely an interesting woman.

May God continue to keep her.

She and Earl Holliman do commentary tracks on a couple of POLICE WOMAN episodes on one of the DVD sets.

They are pretty funny together.....and Angie says: "Look, Earl, you're wearing your favorite jacket in this episode......oh....wait.....you're wearing it today, too!"
