Alexa from Pop Elegantiarum here. I love Carrie Fisher, and I wish I could swoop into New York to catch her one-woman show Wishful Drinking. One of her bits involves her drawing a comparison between Eddie Fisher leaving her mom, Debbie Reynolds, for Elizabeth Taylor and the whole Brad Pitt - Angelina Jolie - Jennifer Aniston saga. All it took was a glance at this old Screenplay magazine of mine to confirm that she's on to something.
It's all there: the story purporting to break up the raven-haired temptress and Eddie, followed by a sympathy piece on Debbie the single gal. I wonder who will play these roles in another 40 years?
An aside: the cover story "Strange Things Marlon Brando Does to Women" really doesn't live up to its title. It's just a bunch of pics of Marlon and his co-stars. Snooze.
