Mental Hackers - Leaving The 20th Century (Vinyl, LP)
He lived to screw. He had been honest with my mother about his appetite for young girls, and said he would change, but she married him anyway. They became the Brangelina of the day. Only Burton and Taylor outpeered them. She was the total package: sexy, beautiful and bright, with an underlying shyness to her charisma. As my father was hellbent on seducing any and every beautiful woman he happened across, he immediately suggested to R. In happier times: The happy Anthony and Joan pose with his birthday cake before cutting it up.
August 25, Humour was the weapon he used to soften all resistance so that the work of seduction could begin in earnest. My mother knew, as she kissed my father lightly goodnight, that something irrevocable had happened. After his movie Doctor Dolittle — now considered a classic — was a flop on its first release and with no movie work on tap, he marked time in Las Vegas doing cabaret.
The mob ran Caesars Palace where he headlined, and after one mega-successful engagement, the boys upstairs asked my father what he would like by way of a present. On closing night, rolling on from stage left, came a spanking-new E-Type Jag, chocolate as specified, tied with a big red ribbon.
My mother failed to understand his helpless morbid sufferings. His extreme complexity made her feel lost and alone in the marriage. Like him, she possessed no middle setting, no common touch to heal over the chasms in understanding. They cohabited the big house but they rarely lived together. My father preferred to repair to his study over the garage, where he could noodle with songs, dream his dreams, pop his pills, and smoke his dope.
My mother had her gay friends who were always up for another long night. She was rarely sick and rarely tired.
He was a committed napper and hypochondriac. Have a wonderful time. And remember… start a trend! She took him literally and started several: knee-high white boots, bangle earrings, rakish bob haircuts. She was a comet, a whirlwind, an It Girl. They argued all LP) time about her career, which she rightly felt she was sacrificing for him. Her best friends, such as Natalie Wood and Dyan Cannon, the former wife of Cary Grant — inarguably less magnetic and gorgeous than my mother — were sitting in make-up chairs at 20th Century Fox while she was sitting at home.
Mother and son: British-born actress Joan Collins, pictured here in with her son Alexander Newley, celebrates her 70th birthday on 23rd May Resentment reigned until they came to a silly compromise: she would find another outlet for her creative energies in interior decoration.
It was something, he laughed, that she could do from home. Soon she was making life at Summit a dizzying round of parties, which on any given night might have featured Natalie Wood with her all-devouring brown eyes and melting smile; Rat Pack member Peter Lawford; Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward deep in conversation with Sammy Davis Jr; John F. One night, I fell face-down in the pool, sinking. My mother screamed and the party froze. My father ran to the rescue.
He jumped in and splashed out to save me. Back at poolside, I vomited water and started bawling. He used them to console himself after the broken promises of Dolittle and Sweet November, his film with Sandy Dennis. He decided to create his own movie. It was a testament to the unbridled sinfulness of his sex life, and it was a holy mess.
By the winter ofthe Newley family, such as it was, was LP) London for pre-production. Heironymus hit theatres in as the first and last wide-release film to receive an X rating. But the critics slaughtered it: Newley was no more than a self-indulgent poseur and conman.
My father was devastated. My mother smiled wanly at our pleasure as my father watched through fogged glass — the blessed scene amounting to a stake in his heart. He turned and walked off through the glistening ferns, leaving a shrinking stain of breath on the window glass to symbolise his care.
The need for a constant male presence in her life was in all likelihood a bad habit traceable to her father — the emotionally glacial and self-important theatrical agent Joe Collins — who rarely gave his perfect little daughter the time of day.
We resumed life at Summit Drive, but it was never the same. My father withdrew more and more into himself. My mother fretted and despaired. SpaceKitten checked The Addams Family 2 6 minutes ago.
