Ask Stacy -- Week of 3/28/15
DEAR STACY: I watched Diane Sawyer's "Sound of Music" special on "20/20" and enjoyed it immensely. However, it left me wondering about Eleanor Parker, who was not mentioned. She was perfect in her performance as the baroness. — VM1200, Spokane, Washington
DEAR VM1200: Parker died of pneumonia at age 91 in December of 2013. She retired from her illustrious career after making the TV movie "Dead on the Money" in 1991. Her many credits include three Academy Award nominations for Best Actress, for "Caged" (1950), "Detective Story" (1951) and "Interrupted Melody" (1955). Wed four times, she had four children including actor Paul Day Clemens.
DEAR STACY: I like Terry Crews, but "World's Funniest Fails" is incredibly bad, insultingly stupid TV. As if "World's Funniest Videos" didn't offer enough kicks to the crotch as on-air entertainment. How did this thing get on the air? — Paula W., Chattanooga, Tennessee
DEAR PAULA: The idea of making a show out of YouTube fails had to have sounded great at the outset, don't you think? I can tell you that the Fox show, which was handed an order for eight additional episodes in February, has been coming in well behind all its network competition. But then, it's not expensive to make and presumably expectations weren't that high.
DEAR STACY: What is French Stewart up to lately? — Shirley G., Huntington Beach, California
DEAR SHIRLEY: Have you missed him on "Mom," the Anna Faris-Allison Janney comedy? The one-time "3rd Rock From the Sun" actor plays Chef Rudy on the series.
DEAR STACY: Whatever happened to the girl who played "Matilda"? A wonderful child actress. — Lori B., Clinton, Iowa
DEAR LORI: After making the 2000 dud "Thomas and the Magic Railroad," gifted young actress Mara Wilson — whose credits also include "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Miracle on 34th Street" — left the limelight. She attended Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, and then turned to other creative pursuits, including writing an off-Broadway play called "Sheeple" and an article for Cracked.com about child stars.
