#TBT Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle

Unknown-5 I've mentioned before how much I adore Matthew Broderick and how special my time was with him during my Broadway debut in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.  I've also mentioned how much I adore Jennifer Jason Leigh.  So, it should come as no surprise that I ran to the theatre in 1994 to support them both in a little film called Mrs. parker and the Vicious Circle.

Dorothy Parker was an American poet, short story writer, critic and satirist, best known for her wit, wisecracks, and eye for 20th-century urban foibles.  Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle introduces us to how Dorothy Parker remembers the heyday of the Algonquin Round Table, a circle of friends whose barbed wit, like hers, was fueled by alcohol and flirted with despair.

Jennifer Jason Leigh earned a Golden Globe nomination ofr her brilliant performance.  Take a peek back with Dorothy Parker and her Vicious Circle...

Hey My Fellow Movie Lovers...

A Bison, Virgo, devoted daughter, yoga and spinning enthusiasts, graduate of  the "mecca" - Howard University's School of Communications, former publicist, actress, branding influencer and "doggie mom" to an adorably smart-energetic maltese are just a few of the characteristics that make up the essence of me -- Carla Renata.

Formerly of UBNRAdio.com, where I Co-Hosted "On Air With Tony Sweet", this Fall, I will be hosting a new show for Black Hollywood Live owned by E! Correspondent Maria Menounos  and am a freelance contributor for NPR's Weekend All Things Considered.

I absolutely adore talking about all things cinema and it is my sincere hope that although not every opinion I have will or will not be embraced, know that I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to share!  Enjoy and see you on the red carpet!!!
