It's somehow comforting that Lilli Palmer, Siobhán McKenna, and Mai Zetterling share a birthday (and it's today).
 
A dog at rest tends to stay at rest.
 
One sees a lot of, e.g., “The family moved to Oregon when Sarah was twelve-years-old.”

That’s a big nope.

I’m watching Keeper of the Flame, and my understanding is that I’m not supposed to like it, but so far I’m kinda grooving on it.

That is the best absolutely deranged Spencer Tracy–Katharine Hepburn antifascist melodrama I’ve ever seen.

I owe you multiple thanks for Dreyer's English, which sorted out my who/whom shakiness, gave me confidence to split infinitives, and converted me to the series comma.

My favorite is the writers who ask me to read and give notes on a work (usually spec writers; most pros know better). After reading all those pages and offering comments aimed at helping... well, you know what I'm going to say. Defensiveness and nary a thx.
Replying to @1tomstraw
I read a manuscript written by the friend of a very good friend around three decades ago, provided a helpful and detailed report, and received no response at all. My friend eventually told me that the writer was not happy with my response. I've never done it again.

The only downside, really, of a two-hour walk is that it takes two hours. Otherwise: no notes.

I asked something once and you answered and I am grateful. Thank you.

Given that the Dreyer's English calendar has been all about hyphens lately, I have a timely question for @BCDreyer: In this construction, should "deal making" be hyphenated? pic.twitter.com/IEXMEJWH5g

I can live without the hyphen. Here.

To be clear: it probably won't be the last time they ask you a question. But it will certainly be the last time they get an answer.
Replying to @brooklyndan
Well, let's put it this way: It'll be the last time I see the question, that's for sure. If you catch my old drifteroonie.
 
Not too late. It’s amazing out.

[It's not the "thank you" I'm esp. invested in; it's the absence of "your answer is not what I wanted and now I'm going to tell you why."]
 
In reply to @BCDreyer
No questions yet. But, a big Thank You for all your sage and free advice.
Replying to @EduardoR
Well, when you do get to a question, you should please say: "I already said thank you the last time, so we're square." Don't forget to remind me!

Then let's do that. It's reasonably faithful and reasonably not hideous, and sometimes that's the best you can manage.

NOT YOU. But you're welcome anyway.

OK, new policy here at House of Copyediting Pro Tip:

If you ask me a question and I answer it, and your response is entirely "I don't like your answer" and the words "thank you" are nowhere to be seen, that's the last time you'll ever be asking me a question.

Of the front jacket of the Kellyanne Conway tell-all, I guess the best that can be said is:

To be honest, I speak less of the peculiar presentation of the author's name than of the egregious cheesecake, but mostly: whatever.
 
In reply to @BCDreyer
There was a convention, widely adopted around the Star Wars episodes 1-3 trilogy, that the em dash should separate subtitle from title when the title includes a colon, e.g. Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace I hated this but accepted it, as one does. But now …
Replying to @PETEKEELEY @StyleWriterNYC and 1 otherfalse
I did a minor bit of nosing around among our own SW books, but I can't find that any of them ever mandated the episode number at all, so we never had to deal with the problem.

Consecutive colons would unnerve me to no end.

Diane Ladd is a great straight man, and the way she mimes coldness toward the end is brilliant.
 
In reply to @StyleWriterNYC
The official, or at least commonest, version seems to be: Mission: Impossible—Dead Reckoning Part One You can certainly honor that, but I would forgive anyone who opted for: Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning, Part One
Replying to @BCDreyer @StyleWriterNYC and 2 others
Or I'll meet you in the middle with: Mission: Impossible—Dead Reckoning, Part One to avoid the double colon. But that last bit needs *some* kind of punctuation, whether the creators have deemed it or not. (I'm only so respectful.)

I’m sorry, chief. I should have capitalized “Pole.” 😉
 
In reply to @BCDreyer
She can star in the version that also has Josephine Baker as Solange and Joan C as Carlotta.
Is that the one with Fred and Adele doing "Rain on the Roof"?
 
In reply to @BCDreyer
She's one of those actors I think of as always having been old (like Patrick Stewart). Seeing a twenty-something Lansbury in her first role (1944's Gaslight) broke my brain.
Replying to @JeremyOkelley
She was still a *teenager.*
 
In reply to @CafeMuscato
She might well have been definitive. She's absolutely perfect for the role, and I'd like to think she would not have shied away from the acidic aspects.
Replying to @BCDreyer @CafeMuscato and 1 otherfalse
She'd have been a touch young for it for the original, but we can rejigger the past a bit as we need to.

Oh, Diedrich, you just can't imagine how magical it was (or maybe you can). My eyes are welling up just thinking about it.

Mitzi would never in a million years have played it, but she sure as hell could have.

The last full-tilt Dreyer family theater party was to see Angela Lansbury in Deuce in 2007, the notion being that she hadn't been on Broadway since 1983 and this was probably gonna be it.

Who knew she was just catching her breath before three more Broadway roles?

A particularly treasured memory: seeing Barbara Barrie as the teenage Katrin in a 2014 production of I Remember Mama, all of whose roles, male and female, young and old, were played by actresses of a certain age and then some. It was glorious. pic.twitter.com/RXESEA221F

That's wonderful Phyllis Somerville just to her right.

My best to date is Donna McKechnie, who really got the girlish part and the nasty drunk part—and who, at the end of "Who's That Woman?," seemed so happy (either as Sally or as herself or as both) to have had the chance to hoof a bit.
Buddy's description of Sally as "cute as hell" is really something.
 
Dorothy Collins remains the GOAT but Victoria Clark is the best Sally I've seen live.
