Daisy Werthan:
You should have let me keep my old LaSalle. It never would’ve behaved this way and you know it.
Boolie Werthan:
Mama, cars don’t behave. They are behaved upon. Fact is, you demolished that Chrysler all by yourself.
Daisy Werthan:
Say what you want, I know the truth.
Boolie Werthan:
The truth is, you just cost the insurance company $2,700. You’re a terrible risk. Nobody’s gonna issue you a policy after this.
Daisy Werthan:
You’re just saying that to be hateful!
Boolie Werthan:
OK. I am. I’m makin’ it all up. Look out there in the driveway! Every insurance company in America is out there, waving their fountain pen, trying to get you to sign up!

Coming to Baltimore’s Landmark Theatres for just two screenings, June 4th at 7 PM and June 8th at 11 AM:

Two of the world’s greatest living actors, Angela Lansbury and James Earl Jones, star in Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer Prize winning play Driving Miss Daisy.

The theatrical production of Driving Miss Daisy with Lansbury and Jones was filmed during the play’s Australian tour following sell-out seasons on Broadway and London’s West End. This film offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to see two iconic Broadway and Hollywood veterans in one of the most enduring and popular stage plays of our time. The production also stars four time Tony Award winner Boyd Gaines.

Driving Miss Daisy tells the story of the decades-long relationship between an elderly Southern Jewish woman, Daisy Werthan, and her compassionate African-American chauffeur, Hoke Colburn. Their iconic tale of pride, changing times and the transformative power of friendship has warmed the hearts of millions worldwide.

We have tickets for the Sunday screening. Want to join us? Get your tickets now.

From the Did You Know file: Angela Lansbury has been nominated three times for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, but never won; nor did she win any of the 18 Emmy Awards for which she was nominated over the past 33-year years. She holds the record for the most Primetime Emmy losses by any performer. She has, however, won five Tony Awards and many more Golden Globes and Drama Desk Awards.

We’ll see you in Harbor East next month.
