"If we're talking about the Muse, I'd better see to the liquor." Hilary Stevens
“The Muse, you see, is Aphrodite and Medusa, and when you turn her head around, she is yourself. So hard to learn to love yourself. Your own free and powerful self.”
Mrs. Stevens Hears the Mermaids Singing, the movie
I'm so excited to have heard from so many people. Catherine Crouch, Patrick Richwood, Patrick Kirst, Rebecka Harpring, Anne Diehl, Tatjana Longerot, Jim Logan, Kate, and Katherine Archer have all checked in. I would love to know what everyone is doing.
There are a few glitches, but we should be fully on-line, video and all in a couple of days!
I'm going to use this page to work on a new project: The Making of Mrs. Stevens: Or how a "woman from Ohio" beat the odds, politics, a hot-shot "man from L.A.," a New York literary agent, a Boston playwright, two wars in the Middle-East, the death of our first committed actress, Audra Lindley, our second committed actress, Glenda Jackson's election to Parliament, the mob, sexism, ageism not to mention actual rejections from Katharine Hepburn, Joanne Woodward, Coleen Dewhirst, Julie Harris and several others, the ordinary scramble for funding for indy films and made an award-winning movie in only 22 years.
