This site looks kind of cool. I found it while searching Google tonight for new MSM news. Anyway, this page had an announcement about Mary Stuart Masterson's upcoming CBS television series "Raising Kate." Right below that, there is a 1996 interview with MSM by the TORONTO SUN about the premiere of "Bed of Roses."
Someone in the Netherlands set up an attractive web site that praises his own personal picks as the "Top Twenty Five Most Attractive Actresses in the World." His first pick is not Mary Stuart Masterson, but she sure made the cut. If you want to have a look at the Dutch citizen's selections as the most attractive actresses, try clicking the link:
Turner Network Television (TNT) frequently runs "Heaven's Prisoners," as one of Ted Turner's companies, Savoy Pictures, was the principal backer of the movie. It was a great suspense and action movie, as has been pointed out on this site in more than one place. TNT Roughcut ran a nice profile of Mary Stuart Masterson last year, and it is still available!
The subject of "Funny About Love" came up in an interview with its director, Leonard Nimoy. Mr. Nimoy has some nice things to say about both Gene Wilder and Mary Stuart Masterson in this interview. Included in the talk are Mr. Nimoy's recollections about other movies he has directed, and, or course, Mr. Spock and "Star Trek.."
Combing the search engines for links for Mary Stuart Masterson information, I stumbled across this article from nearly five years ago, January 1996. Now, who put the VCR of life on fast forward, anyway? It's been five years since "Bed of Roses" opened? Anyway, Mary Stuart Masterson was interviewed by USA TODAY just as the film was about to debut. You can take a look at this piece of the past by clicking on the link below:
According to a post by Claudia Kehl of Switzerland on the MARY STUART MASTERSON FORUM, CBS has decided to pick up six episodes of the Mary Stuart Masterson drama "The Further Adventures" as a mid-season replacement. The series has been retitled "Raising Kate," and still involves a single mother juggling more than one job while raising her daughter. As it is a mid-season replacement, you can look for the series to debut sometime around late January or early February 2001. Someone in the television entertainment industry took a smart pill.
I finally received a VHS of this movie, and just finished writing the review just moments ago. This is one of the best movies of any I have seen, let alone one of the best Mary Stuart Masterson has ever done. In an age of budget-busting special effects blockbusters, it is nice to watch a movie about real people and real emotions. I strongly recommend to everyone to rent or buy this one. You may be able to rent a VHS cassette through Reel.com, or just get the DVD if you don't want to lay out the big bucks for the VHS. But you better see this one. To get a look at the Tavern's review, just click on the link below:
The Book of Stars is out there! You can get it on DVD through outlets like Amazon.com, Reel.com, and many, many more. It is also available on VHS, but at a very expensive price. I should know. I ordered it through Amazon at the hefty $89.95 (US), but I believe it will be worth it from all the reviews I have read. I don't think any MSM fans can afford to miss this one. Get the DVD if you want to avoid the VHS price, or wait for it at major rental outlets. You can also try rental of the VHS version through Reel.com, which also rents cassettes.
This magazine-style site has a very informative article about the "serious" acting side of Mary Stuart Masterson, versus the "romantic" side, which she showed in the 1996 film Bed of Roses. This 1996 article, based on an interview with Ms. Masterson, includes some of her insights into both her professional and personal futures.
April Smith has written two teleplays that became Mary Stuart Masterson starring vehicles on television. One was Love Lives On, a 1984 television movie, and the other was Black and Blue, a television movie probably more familiar to Tavern visitors. There is a review of Black and Blue on the Review page of this site. There are links on Ms. Smith's official site to storylines of all her theatrical and television films, and she is also a novelist. Hit the link below to explore this site. I will set a link to the April Smith site on the Links Menu page as well.
The site for "Matinee Magazine has some great things to say about Ms. Masterson's role as Watts in Some Kind of Wonderful, a perennial favorite movie of Tavern visitors. To get a look at this article, click the handy link below.
The Customers Page now has images of all the flags representing the nations of the visitors to the Tavern. The flags are just what that page needed to set it off right. Hope you all have a look at it, and pick out your own country's flag. The Biography Page was changed to reflect the disappointing news about the prospective CBS television series, "The Further Adventures," which was not picked up by CBS for the fall season. Mary Stuart Masterson was to star in that series, but it may get picked up by CBS in the spring of 2001. Also on the Biography page is the video release of "The Book of Stars," and some information about an upcoming short film MSM directed and wrote for Showtime cable network. Upcoming improvements will include additional biographies of MSM's co-stars, and a search for some favorite sites of Tavern visitors that have since disappeared from the Web. If we can't find those sites, the links will be removed from the links page and the MSM Favorite Site Award page.
