La Streep

Better late than never. I promised a chart page for your favorite actress from several rounds of polling and a tribute page to the winner. Here she is!

And while we're on the topic, here is an interesting look at her process in relation to building her performance in the movie Prime, now playing at a theater near you. Plus previous Film Experience notes on Meryl Streep: The Prime of Miss Meryl Streep, Actresses of the Aughts Entry ~#23, Bronze Medalist: Film Bitch Awards, 2002

good read there! I hadn't seen any pictures of Prairie Home Companion, so that's good.

Looking at her Box Office record thought was strange. In my mind I had this belief that during her late '70s and, well, all of the '80s stretch her films did well financially as well as critically.

Well, many did. This was the 70's/early 80's. Topping $100 million made Kramer v. Kramer a huge huge hit. That would be like $200-250 million now... for a family drama. Nothing to sneeze at, that is. Out of Africa's $70something million was like the usual best pic $100-$150 take, at least. The Deer Hunter even looks like it was quite the hit back in 1978. Even many of Streep's other 80's films that didn't make the list that made say $20-30 mill were probably considered commerical successes at the time.
