Hallmark's "The Christmas Card"Views: 1201

Well, as usual, the movie was a very heartwarming and enjoyable one. What else can we expect from Hallmark?

Glorianda (I hope I spelled it correctly), your Molly was wonderful. You looked beautiful and did an excellent job. I even sat through the second showing just to see your part again.

How lucky to be able to work with all of those wonderful actors and know that they are your collegues! Too cool!

How are you today after your premier last night?

Thank you! You are very kind, Debra.

Interestingly enough, I have a copy of the 'director cut ' version of the film which I prefer. It flows better and ties up the loose ends a bit more. They cut out at least 30 minutes of this TV version in order to have more room for advertising on the Hallmark channel. AH ~ That is the way it goes in the wonderful biz called 'show'!

Among the stuff that was trimmed or cut out, was a second scene with me (Molly) and the engaged couple 'Paul & Faith'. If you are curious about this missing scene, I have it on my reel posted at: www.glorinda.com

But it was very exciting to watch the movie with some friends and family members and yes, it was a wonderful expreience to work with a fabulous cast and crew like these people.

I thought Ed Asner delivered an awesome performance (as usual) and I love the spice that Perter Jason adds to the movie. BTW ~ Peter Jason is a delightful person to meet. Very funny and charming gentleman.

Thanks for watching and for your kind support. You are truly a dear.

As usual my computer is acting up and I can't hear the sound but I enjoyed the clips nontheless.

I have always enjoyed Peter Jason's work. I'm glad to hear that he's a nice guy too. Somehow, hearing that a certain actor is a schmuck turns me off on them. LOL So it's good to hear otherwise.

I truly enjoyed the movie and the fact that I knew you were probably watching it with loved ones and celebrating your TV movie! Too cool!

Glorinda:

I SO wanted to see this but after all was said & done, my husband made reservations for us to go out Saturday evening. Our anniversary was last week & he was out of town. I had a lovely evening -- & I did think of you while I was out, especially since we went to see some fantastic Baltimore dinner theatre doing "A Christmas Carol." I even mentioned the show to him.

And now you tell me it's airing again on 12/7 @ 9 PM . . . & that's when my plane will be landing in Phoenix! I'm just missing the boat everywhere on this. : < Looks like it'll also be on Christmas @ 7 PM. I'll try to see it then, but I'll be coming home from Louisiana that day. Lots of travel this month.

I watched your reel -- really enjoyed all the clips. Please tell us about "Widow Maker." That looks so intriguing!


Blessings -- Linda

Oh Linda!
You are one busy lady! Travel is so much fun though. I hope you are having a nice time.

Thanks for asking about "Widow Maker". It was a submission made for the National Film Challenge 2003 whereby the filmmakers are comissioned to create a short movie in one weekend! I was the producer and lead actress for this short movie. we were assigned the western genre and some specific details which had to included in our entry on a Friday night - then wrote, cast, shot, edited and scored the entire short in only 72 hours!!! No sleep for us!
;-)
I am happy to report we won 3 awards:
Best Western
Best Costumes
plus Best Shaving Incident!
and we screened in the Cedar Rapids Indie Film Fest 2004.

The movie short "Widow Maker" is currently used online to teach English as a second language.

Glorinda:

I thought it had a "dark western" look to it. Was it done in sepia or was that your reel? It was the expression on your face when you're shaving him, & then your fantastic walk out of the bldg -- so much emotion! -- that caught my attn w/"Widow Maker." You certainly appear to be a versatile actress.

Maybe one day you'd chat w/me about writing a movie script. I've done plays -- & obviously books -- but I've not yet attempted a film script. I'd love to be able to do one for my Robert Taylor book so as to have a "package deal" ready.

I'm so happy to have you here w/us on H&P. You offer a great film professional POV!

BTW, I also love your website . . . very well done.


Blessings -- Linda

Glorinda Marie
Thanks so much Linda!
;-)
I just finished the online radio interview with Marilyn May... I think it went well. Wow - my head is spinning with all the publicity!

Yes, you should definitely write a screenplay. You sound like such a very talented writer indeed. I would imagine it would be awesome to have your screenplay become a movie - how awesome to see your imagination humanized on the big screen!!!

Please write to me either privately or here for any help I can possibly provide you. I'd be delighted to help if I can.

And thanks for the nice compliments on "Widow Maker". - Ah shux...Yes, i am blushing.
;-)
Glorinda
PS - If you want, I can mail you a VHS version of the film ( I'll make you a copy from my DVD recorder). If so, pleae email me privately with a postal address to send it to.
