Charlie's Earth Angel
Sacha made me think of something. Ten minutes into Altman's Dr. T & The Women. A ritzy Houston mall. Feathered women mill about. Tara Reid and Kate Hudson are at Tiffany's with their mother, Farrah Fawcett. A few minutes later, they look around: Mom's missing. She hasn't been quite herself lately. They rush out, she's nowhere in sight. Altman discreetly pans to a store sign: Guess. Cut to Farrah, who's dressed in brown like some wood nymph. Spaced-out, floating. Kicks off her brown shoes. Shakes loose her earth-colored sweater, drops it. (She's outside: Timberland.) Next thing, she's climbing into the fountain. Disrobing. Splashing about like Anita Ekberg. Starkers, a mermaid-child. Women gather about, incredulous, giggly, outraged. Altman quietly pans up: Godiva, Chocolatier.
