CDA: Olympia Dukakis

Richard told me about the death of Olympia Dukakis. She was 89, older than I thought. Here's a great scene from her best movie, the one that won her the Oscar, *Moonstruck*:



Call me contrary, but my favorite Olympia Dukakis moment is one in which she doesn't appear. Here's Jon Stewart's opening monologue from the second time he hosted the Oscars. The moment I love is at 3:48.

I loved her appearance in "Tales of the City" - the last one - did you see it? It was like a "Return to Tales of the City, 20 years later" and also starred Laura Linney, who I also love! You really have to see it! One of the stars is that movie star girl who recently became a boy - blanking on his name just now. Anyway, Olympia Dukakis - one of the real gems.

Actually the line you like from Jon Stewart is at 4:25! Happy Sunday!
