CALGARY HERALD Wednesday, November 6, 1996 C5 IICIHH and the The Nanny's Fran Drescher spins her own tale for the big screen ENTERTAINMENT j -iMi -: . .

Only this film will be called The Beautician And The Beast and it will have a definite contemporary spin to to it. "Timothy Dalton plays the Beast, and he's wonderful!" she exclaims. "He looks really rugged. They roughed him up and gave him lots of facial hair so it's really funny." i But Dalton in his first big , role since giv- Jamie Portman Southam Newspapers ing up his James Bond connection won't be portraying your nor mal garden variety Beast in this ' Paramount film scheduled for re-lease next year. Instead, his char-" ' acter is the uncouth leader of a newly democratized Eastern European country, a leader with some rather beastly habits. Still, he's concerned for his children's future so he hires an American teacher capable of "Westernizing" them. Drescher plays the teacher, but her character's classroom credentials are more than a bit bogus. "I'm actually someone who teaches beauty culture but I get confused for a real teacher and end up being hired to teach these children. When someone like me arrives on the scene it blows everybody's mind and makes everything topsy-turvy." As is the case with her hit TV show, The Nanny, Drescher is also acting as her own producer for The Beautician And The Beast. It's a job she savors probably, she says, because she's a perfectionist at heart and likes being in control. With both film and series, she imposed her own rigid standards: "I won't do my lines unless they're written properly for me, and we keep rewriting all the way up to actual shooting." Drescher considers herself luckier than most actors in not being afraid to let her own emotions hang out on screen. "I don't think I'm as blocked a human being as some other people are. I don't carry quite as much psychological baggage. My emotions run more freely through my system and I'm able to find them more easily." It seems that Eric Stoltz is a practical joker on movie sets. That's the word from Jeff Daniels who co-starred with Stoltz in the current Two Days In The Valley. Daniels tells the story about one crucial dramatic scene in which he was supposed to be drinking a cup of coffee. He had to leave the set for just a couple minutes and during his absence Stoltz loaded the waiting java with several spoons full of salt. The cameras were rolling by the time Daniels discovered what Stoltz had done. "I didn't want to ruin the scene. So I did it AND I drank .the coffee!" Still, when he looks back on Two Days In The Valley, Daniels feels a lot more posi- w turns I ' t'f'l I -. I 'm tive about his mischievous co-star than he does about the finished film. "I had a good time with Eric," he says. He's less charitable towards the people behind the camera. He's so unhappy with what's out there on movie screens that he refuses to talk about it. "They've done things with their movie that I just can't agree with and don't want to discuss. I can either go into a tirade or wish them luck ... so I guess I'll wish them luck." Film-maker Ivan Reitman on the zany challenge of directing both Robin Williams and Billy Crystal in Father's Day: "It was like driving two Ferraris at once. They blew more takes on this movie than anything they've ever done because they would make each other laugh at the most inopportune moments. They couldn't help themselves." Paramount has set Nov. 26 as the date for the home video release of six sets of episodes from its classic Mission Impossible television series, which originally ran from 1966 to 1973. Fans of the recent Tom Cruise feature film will have the chance to compare its high-gloss adventures with the real thing. Each video will contain two episodes featuring such original Mission stalwarts as Martin Landau, Peter Graves and the late Greg Morris. Among the featured stars are George Takai (Star Trek), Pernell Roberts (Bonanza) and Ed Asner (The Mary Tyler Moore Show). Each video will retail at $9.95 in the United States and Canada.
