Beauty From Within



Mom sent me "Beauty is from within--" so I know the lighthearted banter that left my computer keyboard went awry in transit.

In my script from last year, Propinquity and the Mesmerizer, the main character, a spry, feisty 80 year old (to be ideally played by Phyllis Diller) told the 20 something hunk who was chasing HER, object: matrimony, (which she treated like a fate worse than death,) "I'm OLD, not DEAD. When you deal with me, you need to dial the wattage down a bit (on that smile)." The visual is to be of him with a 100 watt smile directed at her.

When she finally succumbs to his charms, it is for head and heart, because "good looks are ephemeral. Not that I mind pretty scenery. But it's a 'frill and extra', not the staff of life."
