Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

There's so much to say which is perhaps why I never say it.And why I'll let you say it instead since I gave up trying to write up my thoughts each week (too many thoughts!) COMMENT PARTY!You're invited.Bring your own comments.

Ben's farewell at the Glitter BallAnd the predicted winner is...Adore (love that bitch) though my true heart belongs to Bianca

Ben de la Creme at least understood filling the entire workroom mirror with lipstick brain vomit when he departed last week leaving only four...and then three Monday night (Adore,Bianca,and Courtney) to compete for thecrowntiara of America's Next Drag Superstar.

But what a way to go...and Ben even referencedWhat a Way To Go!(1964) at one point (though I regret to inform that I couldn't find it to prove it in screencap form) before sashaying away.Which made her exit all the more painful since a queen who can reference old movies and has a grasp of cultural history to draw from beyond current reality tv and Beyoncé (the only two things the lesser queens seem to "get"each season) isalwaysa better queen for it.I still cringe thinking of that old episode whereevendrag queensdidn't know whatGrey Gardens(1975) was -- and this was even after the Emmy & Globe winning Jessica Lange and Drew Barry more version in 2009 -- and chastised Jinkx for choosing an "obscure"celebrity to riff on.RuPaul didn't dress them down for it but justice in the end because guess who won the whole season.

My point is two-fold and as yet unexpressed.See how I can't focus with this show?

1) The last couple of episodes have been curiously muted and I hope the show finds a way to put a little pep back into its step when it goes away again at the finale and

2) there are surely few better films to draw inspiration from if you're a man in a dress thanWhat a Way To Go!.Consider Miss Shirley Maclaine in the Oscar nominated costumes by Moss Mabry and Edith Head in gif formafter the jump...if you dare...
