Part 1 I talk to actress Lane Bradbury. Lane was the youngest actress to join the actors studio, talks Ethel Merman, Bette Davis and getting her rear kicked by Harvey Keitel.
I had the pleasure of talking to actress Lane Bradbury. She was such a delight. We talked her move to New York, her beginning at The Actors Studio, learning "the method". She saw Marilyn Monroe there once. Lane was in the original Gypsy with Ethel Merman playing Baby June, also was in the Original Night Of The Iguana with Bette Davis playing Charlotte, Lane them moved to California and never stopped working. I remember her as the only girl that did not fall for Keith Partridge. She had not much to say about that. Then she did an incredible supporting role in Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, as the troubled wife married to a cheating Harvey Keitel. Lane said she and Ellen weren't acting in that scene. Harvey terrified them. Lane worked as a regular in the series In The Heat Of The Night and so many other shows. She is still working today. She did a TV movie with Sally Field and they had a grand time. It was the hippy era and a groovy movie called "Maybe I'll Come Home In The Spring" Lane is a dynamo, still taking dance classes in the city and going to the Actors Studio, which coincidentally Ellen Burstyn is the big cheese there. Lots of great scoops from Lane.
I want to thank my friend John O'Dowd for getting Lane as a guest for me.
