2.0 out of 5 stars Everything you Ever Wanted to Know About Gypsy Rose Lee....., October 13, 2000
This review is from: Lady of Burlesque [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The only real reason to sit through this melodramatic kitsch-filled dramedy is Barbara Stanwyck. That and the fact this is an actual adaptation of the famed stripper's foray into the world of literature. Yes, folks, this slight film is based on the one, the only, Gypsy Rose Lee's story, entitled, "G-String Murders." It's campy fun now, but when it was penned, about 50 years ago, this was major no-no territory. My, how things have changed. Demi Moore should have watched the real pros when actors had faces, and real acting required more than forming tears at will. Stanwyck always knew she could act, and that formidable presence makes anything she stars in palatable. And who would've thunk Pinky Lee did more in his life than entertain kids....

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly riveting, intriguingly detailed., November 9, 1997
Surprise! Here's a book that not only intrigues with impressionistic detail of the New York City transit system, but that also provides a valuable lesson into how the most complex city in the U.S. lives and breathes. I took it with me on jury duty and it more than carried me through the tedium of long hours of nothingness with my peers. Jim Dwyer has X-ray vision when it comes to looking at the inner workings of the Big Apple.
