New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 16, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeltung o Thursday January p 7 Attractions The Unsinkable Debbie Reynolds By Joey Berlin and Jeff Shore Copley Service Over the course of her illustrious 48year career including such classic films as Singing in the Rain and The Unsinkable Molly Debbie Reynolds never once auditioned for a part But that didnt keep her from flying to Los though Brooks seriously considered such other mature stars as Doris Day Esther Williams and even former first lady Nancy Reagan However after seeing Mother and talking with Reynolds during a series of promotional interviews in Austin Texas it is impossible to imagine anyone else in the part Selfdescribed as bossy by the unsinkable Reynolds into his old room at home Playing a subtle passive aggressive parent who lives a supposedly quiet life in her small Northern California town was quite a stretch I tried very hard not to be Debbie she says I didnt want the audience to see me I wanted them to see a character Of course as a real mother Im very outgoing and expressive I had to hold a lot back to be the mother in the In person Reynolds holds little back even when discussing her love life or current lack of one Reynolds isnt romantically involved with anyone at the moment and she intends to keep it that way While her father and mother workingclass folks from Texas were married for more than 50 years Reynolds hasnt been quite as successful in her relationships In fact at one time she was most famous as the wronged woman left behind as a single mother to raise two small children when husband Eddie Fisher ran off with violeteyed temptress Elizabeth Taylor Debbie Reynolds stars in the new Albert Brooks film her first film role in 25 yers Angeles to read for the title role in Albert Brooks hew Mother Of course Reynolds did it her way After struggling to find his office on what used to be the old MOM lot moved the building she Reynolds met with Brooks and read one scene Thats he told her Youve got the Not good enough Reynolds thought Albert why would you give me the part after just reading one she blurted out Dont you think I should read at least two Brooks was completely sold he responded Youre already bossing me around Youre just like my A year later Reynolds is getting rave reviews in what is invariably being referred to as her comeback role It very nearly wasnt hers is an awesome force to reckon wjth Simple conversation with thte seems like a performance itself She is a delightful raconteur equally concerned with giving the public what it wants and perfecting her craft Its easy to see where her daughter Carrie Fisher gets her lively wit Mother is Reynolds first screen acting job in 25 years but she wasnt sitting at home crocheting all that time After her most recent divorce she invested all her money and energy into her own Las Vegas casino Shes up on stage every night singing and dancing But Mother is a far cry from her nightclub act Brooks plays a twicedivorced scifi writer who realizes that hell never get his relationships with women straightened out until he resolves the one with his mother So he packs up his stuff and moves back Friday January 94 ALFONZ RAMOS Countys Sunday January arn In Canyon Lake IN wwt Ajmm Sponsored by Pawn Construction Company FREE PARKING dP of failed marriages to bad taste in men Shes done better with her kids Unlike her character in Reynolds has raised strong independent children They have veto power over the men she dates She runs her casino with son Todd And while her relationship with Carrie can be quite contentious as strong as I am and just as the two obviously have great love for each other Carrie sent her the script to Mother and insisted she go and read for Brooks Carries former boyfriend When Brooks chose Reynolds for the role Carrie stepped in to broker the deal for her agentless mom Reynolds professes to be unfazcd by Carries book Postcards from the a confessional story about a drug dependent actress and her domineering alcoholic mother despite the fact that many who read it or saw the rnovic with Reynolds old friend Shirley MacLaine as the mother consider it to be autobiographical That was a character she insists That couldnt have been me 1 couldnt have done the things I did and keep the schedule I keep if I had an alcohol Nor does Reynolds have a difficult time dealing with her daughters success and fame After all those years of her being Debbie Reynolds laughs Reynolds Im ALII Fri TIIAD BECKMAN BLUES BAND Sat STEVE JOHNSEN Now Orleans
