PBiFF - Disappointed in Dunaway's details - CinemaDave

Apr. 23rd, 2006 09:54 am PBiFF - Disappointed in Dunaway's details

Having read several biographies about Faye Dunaway,
I always wanted to know why this Tallahassee Lassie from FLA,
became a Gator Girl at the University of Florida.
I did not get the answer to this question,
because I did not get to talk to Faye Dunaway on the Red Carpet.

She spoke to the television reporters,
but she was whisked away quickly from the red carpet because
"She was tired from travel."

Little did I know that Dunaway failed to attend the premier of her own movie,
"Rain," which costarred Robert Loggia, Brooklyn Sudano and Khandi Alexander.
Sadly, there are reports from the Palm Beach Post that Dunaway demanded to profit from her appearance.
Maybe Dunaway did not realize that PBiFF was a non profit organization.
If the facts and figures of Jose Lambiet's article is correct,
Faye Dunaway would have walked away with the majority of money raised by Saturday Night's gala.

Faye Dunaway gave the last and longest speech of the night.
She talked about her favorite leading men, Jack Nicholson, Steve McQueen and Warren Beatty.
She also said,

"Learn the craft. Don't think it's easy and pay attention to the details."

I guess I am one of the details that she overlooked
and this entry has come back to haunt Faye Dunaway.

I've never had any personal contacts with movie stars in the flesh or the telephone but I know some people who have and it's surprising how often they say the stars disappoint.

Re: Dunaway

I have been very fortunate with the celebrities that I have met.
One of the nicest guys I've met, believe it or not, was G. Gordon Liddy.
Lily Tomlin was very nice to me when I got her autograph when I was 14.
Fay Wray...Patty Heaton...Dyan Cannon..Dennis Hopper was nice...
