Sally Kirkland

  1. Sandra Bernhard, The King of Comedy, 1983.  Sandra’s star was rising.  Not for much longer.
  2. Melanie Griffith, Working Girl, 1988.   Just Oscar-nominated for her Anna, 1987, Kirkland felt she had a good chance to be Tess McGill. But… “I denied Sally Kirkland an audition because she was too old,” said director Mike Nichols.  “But honestly she scared me.  She’d send me flowers and letters to let her read.  It wasn’t cute, it was desperate.”
