Blind Items Revealed #2

December 14, 2017

Back in the day, this director was A+ list. He had just made the movie that would define his career and he was on top of the world. It is a movie that almost everyone has seen, and if you haven't seen it, you know exactly what it is about. That is how pervasive it is. Anyway, the studio wanted a movie from the director. He was hot. So, he proposed something that looking back looks idiotic and destined to be a bomb, but hey, he was the director of that thing so we have to let him. I think the director knew his movie was crap. His celebrity offspring told him the movie was crap. The director didn't care. This was his own personal porno. You can't look at the top names when you look at the cast. That was cover. It is the actresses that got topless in the movie for their first credit. Most of them had to casting couch to get in that movie. There are so many sex scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor with actresses who had casting couched to get a role and then have sex on camera only to see it end up solely in the director's home movie collection. He had recordings made of sex with those actresses too in case they ever decided to come after him. He threatened to release the tapes. He thought he was untouchable. He kind of is now.

What "celebrity offspring" does Garry Marshall have?

Glue said...

Noooo! You all called it and I refused to believe it about Garry Marshall! I am officially blown away. Good job guys.

krk67 said...

He was in line at LAX in front of me once and was as charming and amusing as could be.

This makes me sad.

Sarah L said...

This one makes me sad!!

Krab said...

Barbotus got it. Cheers! I'd forgotten about Exit to Eden.

Sd Auntie said...

Sister is Penny Marshall. Laverne!

Glue said...

@paris - I think one of his daughters was an actress.

Spiffypaws said...

Ya think Rosie had to casting couch!?

Do Tell said...

Garry Marshall was so widely beloved, I have a hard time buying this one. Just wow. Very disappointing.

Sarah L said...

But a sibling isn't offspring.

Don Kieballs said...

There must have been another similar blind because I remember mentioning Exit to Eden as the movie

Do Tell said...

Kathleen Marshall is an actress, but celebrity? Nah.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

He has a son who is an actor/director - Scott Marshall

Rafael said...

Another LARP by a 4chan butthurted Trump supporter. lol

Don Kieballs said...

The celebrity offspring could be any or all of his 3 children. They all act (I'm not saying nepotism allowed them too, but )

Do Tell said...

Oh FFS.

parissucksliterally said...

Garry Marshall does not have "celebrity offspring".
I call bullshit on this one.

Don Kieballs said...

Celebrity offspring are the offspring of a celebrity. His children are offspring, he is the celebrity.

Who's old enough to remember "straight" Rosie in this role and it being funny only because she was considered chubby. Or her crush on Tom cruise. Or Ellen in "Mr. Wrong"? Seems so silly now...the world is a better place when people come out!!!!

Andi F said...

@spiffy-enty specially states the casting couch was not for the headliners, but for the 1st time actresses. So not Rosie

Google is your friend. All of Gary's kids are actors/writers/directors/producers.

kelli_girl said...

Wiki says both his son & daughter are in the movie biz, but neither looked familiar to,me. And I agree with the others this makes sad. He seemed like a really nice guy.

Don Kieballs said...

I watched the movie only because Dana Delaney was in it. I loved her from China Beach (I'm not ashamed to admit) and Tombstone.

Pattie C. said...

Like so many of you this one makes me very sad.

Don Kieballs said...
Celebrity offspring are the offspring of a celebrity. His children are offspring, he is the celebrity.

^^^ This. After checking it out, all three of his children were in and out of the business. Probably referring to his son though, regarding celebrity offspring who told him the movie was crap.

WTH happened to my comment? I didn't delete it.

Lucrezia said...

I was hoping 2018 would start without a comment from Rafael.

Do Tell said...

Michael Douglas is a celebrity offspring. James McCartney is the offspring of a celebrity. There is a difference in how they are referenced here.

plot said...

First, how in the hell would anyone know about these super secret tapes? Personal porno isn't widely shared.

Yeah Exit to Eden was a terrible movie and the script was mangled by a continuous round of new producers. It was supposed to be erotic mild porno, and ultimately Garry decided to make it a slapstick comedy with Rosie and the extremely talented Paul Mercurio (anyone remember Strictly Ballroom?) Lots of power struggles on that film and it looks to me like Garry is the one who nixed all the eroticism of the original book to an oeuvre that fit his comfort level.

Too bad the movie caused Mercurio to reject Hollywood and stay in Australia mostly.

Appalachian Mothersauce said...

I have a friend who's the nicest guy in the world. Everyone loves him including women. I also know that he's a complete sexual deviant.

I totally believe this. Watch the interviews on YouTube.

Shakira Eakins said...

No one wanted to believe it about Cosby either but there ya go.

Sd Auntie said...

Oughh. Thanks

plot said...

@Appalachian Mothersauce

I recently informed my brother that his favorite high school teacher, everyone's favorite at that school, was schtupping my best friend from age 13 on.

This teacher totally groomed her family, too, that such a nice teacher would take an interest in her, bring his kid(s) to their home to visit, treat my friend (who was generally a wall flower at the time) like the special young girl they knew she was.

Another teacher who was sleeping with students went a different route; he was generally a bully to everyone, red white&blue, kinda a racist if you ask me for the way he treated the African American students, certainly a pure stand up guy who attracted another set of parents. Yeah, he'd close the door to his office a lot while young students were in there.

Ah the 70s and 80s, when no one believed what kids had to say.

The abuser or women and children has no "type". It really could be anyone.

Don Kieballs said...

Shakira Eakins - Thank you. I was trying to think of a good example and ybsoc llib totally slipped my mind

Rinky said...

Pretty Woman is such a grotty, nasty movie, beneath it's 'charming', sparkly surface. Only someone thoroughly mired in everyday moral degeneracy could so confidently produce that in the 90s as a 'fairytale' romantic film. It's really quite disturbing how many fools bought into it as some kind of feel-good flick.

I believe the original script at least had an ending that was based on reality - the street hooker ends back on the street, used and discarded. Making it into a feel-good romance is the work of someone with a rather nasty mind and a contempt for the audience. Mind you, given what shit audiences eat and ate in that film's case, I guess it's hard not to have contemot for them after a while.

Don Kieballs said...

I'm mixed about Pretty Woman. I like Julia Roberts and Gere is ok. But the plot was weird and I didn't like seeing George Costanza being so sleezy

Just Paige said...

@Shakira everyone believed it about Cosby. People who were in the audience in the 80’s of a taping and had no personal interaction with him, belived it about Cosby. Treated people like crap.

Shakira Eakins said...

Everyone except for all the commenters on gossip sites that were shocked, myself included. People that grew up watching him and weren't at taping had a hard time with it. Just like fans of Marshal on here.

Don Kieballs said...

I legitimately always thought of Cosby as a nice, wholesome family guy. As he got older I saw him as getting grumpy and trying to speak down to the younger generation, but not in a hateful way. I was definitely shocked when I first heard the rumors.

Shakira Eakins said...

You're welcome!

Shakira Eakins said...

This exactly. I thought maybe he was just getting old and bitter. Nope. He's just an a$$.

Rafael said...

Give us a good one about Trump. Trump and Ivana (there is creep pics)? Trump and Jeffrey Epstein? Melania porn past? There´s so much stories. Guy was always a perv. Sad.

Laughing all by yourself is sad. Pathetic even.

You know you're dealing with a bot when he/she says inflammatory things to upset both sides. He/she's an equal-opportunity troll.

MovieBuff said...

I don’t think I saw this blind on Dec 14th. Exit to Eden is one of my best movies just like Blame it on Rio.

Hey what was the On set scoop on the 90s movie Where the Day takes you. Everyone was in that cast. Will Smith, Alyssa Milano, Lara Flynn Boyle, Ricki Lake, that Getty kid from Lord of the Flies, Dermot Mulroney...David Arquette. Had to be stories from this cast of players.

Buddy Bones Smith said...

Damn, Garry Marshall? Does anybody else hear REM’s “It’s The End Of The World (as we know it) on a constant loop in their head?

Don Kieballs said...

^^Now we get to add Michael Stipe to this!

Cindy said...

Exit to Eden was a riot.

Mara Lideks said...

Some of us are not at all surprised by this. He never changed.

rosie riveter said...

Oh gross! Wasnt Rosie o Donnell in this? Omg I could throw up

SimplyMasonZero said...

At least its not Verhoeven or Kubrick, almost scared the hell out of me there.

plot said...

These clips Garry allegedly kept don't even sound like porn to me. Equating Marshall with Trump or Cosby or Epstein is a little breathy and hysterical, no?

-"Where the Day takes you"

Great little movie. Sean Astin was in that, too.

Count Jerkula said...

I'll PayPal Gary $100 for access to any additional nude footage of Dana Delaney he may have lying around.

When I was in 8th grade I would look forward to China Beach to get a glimpse of her, and when I saw her titties and bush in this movie, 6yrs later, I fapped like a fiend.

emeraldcity said...

Marshall had a sex dungeon in his basement, fully stocked S&M. I presume the long term wife was in on it. Consenting adults and all but still he had his kinks.

Mara - very interesting; thanks for sharing!

MrDarkDC said...

I call shenanigans. Have a friend who was an actress on two Garry Marshall films when she was young, pretty, and unknown. Considered him a friend. He was the only person who gave her film work in her career (now over). I specifically asked her once if she ever casting couched. She said no. I asked if she ever would. She said, basically, maybe. So someone willing to, a perfect mark for someone doing what is described here, was left alone by Garry and considered him a father figure, who was incredibly kind to her because he liked her and thought she was talented. (She is.)

Nope. Sometimes these are fake, and I think that's to provide plausible deniability and enforce the 'this site has fiction' warning.

plot said...

@MrDarkDC

I don't buy it either, particularly if this is Exit Eden. Naturally if the movie were to follow the book, the auditions would be more sexual in nature. The movie was wildly different from the book, ultimately, after many changes in producers. So those audition tapes still exist??? Oh my! Scan-DAL! That doesn't not mean Marshall still has them, or procured them through unseemly means or uses them for his porn.
