Trivia

Joan Simon tells Gwen that she knows that she is dying of cancer, even though her doctors told her husband and not her about her diagnosis. To modern ears this sounds like gross malpractice, but it was not uncommon for physicians to talk only to husbands about their wives' medical conditions. One famous example from this era was Lurleen Burns Wallace, the wife of Alabama's infamous segregationist governor George Wallace. In 1961, Lurleen was diagnosed with cancer, but her doctors only told George, who failed to see to it that she had any follow-up treatment. Several years later, she sought treatment on her own for a different medical condition and was told at that time that she had had uterine cancer for some time. She started a course of radiation therapy even as her term-limited husband encouraged her to run for governor in his place, but the cancer was too far advanced and Governor Lurleen Wallace died in office in 1968 at the age of 41.

Joan Simon: Please, don't.
Gwen Verdon: [playfully] Well, okay, fine! You're uninvited.
Joan Simon: It's lousy enough I have to coddle Neil. Please don't make me coddle you as well.
[Gwen is stunned]
Joan Simon: I'm not a child, Gwen. I know I'm never coming home.

Glory it seems is relative
15 June 2019 | by klbrad1963See all my reviews

I am halfway through the series and do not understand the fawning critiques. Michelle Williams though playing Gwen Verdon is coming off more like Shirley McClainr in each succeeding episode. While Sam Rockwell has me pining for Roy Scheider. Another casting missteps include the actors selected to portray Ben Veneer and Anne Reinking. I'm not expecting carbon copies but these actors lack the "it" factor associated with the talented performers. When the series focuses on the dynamics of the Fosse/Verdon relationship it is compelling and interesting. However, the musical numbers continue to sink it's impact.
