The teacher smiles when it is mentioned that she tends to be thought of as an actress who plays flakes and neurotics. She cites a review one of her acting-school students brought her a few months ago: "It says, 'The school guidance counselor, played by, of all people, Sandy Dennis. . . .' " The student didn't understand the reviewer's mock-surprise reference to her, says Sandy Dennis, who for the past 10 years has taught acting when she is not acting.

September 14, 1990 | From Times Wire Services
Sandy Dennis, who has earned an Academy Award and two Tony Awards during her acting career, says she never goes to the movies and would rather read a good book. Dennis, at work here on the set of Sean Penn's film, "The Indian Runner," also said her favorite film is not "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" for which she won an Oscar in 1965 for supporting actress. It's "Thank You All Very Much," an obscure 1969 British film about a girl who must raise a child she had out of wedlock.

Sandy Dennis, the Academy Award-winning actress who made an art form of intense, nervous mannerisms, has died of cancer in Connecticut. Her longtime friend, Doris Elliott, told the Associated Press that she learned of the 54-year-old actress' death from Dennis' agent, Bill Treusch. Elliott, however, said she did not know when the actress died. Another friend, who asked not to be identified, told the wire service that Dennis had been suffering from ovarian cancer.

Some albums are released just for the love of it. Exhibit A: "Who Knows Where the Time Goes," a four-record, boxed set that showcases the work of Sandy Denny, one of the great voices of the contemporary folk movement sparked in England in the late '60s by bands like Fairport Convention. Exhibit B: "Tribute to Steve Goodman," a live, two-record package featuring John Prine, Arlo Guthrie, John Hartford, Richie Havens and others who joined Jan.

Volunteers and organizers of Burbank on Parade as well as the city's entry into the Tournament of Roses breathed a sigh of relief after the City Council decided to reach into this year's budget to fund next year's events. "I truly feel that community pride is the biggest issue here," said Dennis Hooper, a board member of Burbank on Parade. "The investment they are making is so minimal."

Martin Fried, 62, theatrical director who worked with Lee Strasberg at New York's highly respected Actors Studio. To persuade audiences of his theory that Shakespeare is fun, Fried organized offbeat presentations of the Bard's work, including "Lovers and Lunatics" in 1990. He knitted scenes from various Shakespearean plays, he explained, into a theme of love and lunacy so that audiences would know what they were going to see, even if they had trouble with Shakespeare's language.

Our spies on the tightly closed set of Woody Allen's latest untitled film, now in production in NYC, tell us that the director's super-secrecy over script details is causing all kinds of confusion. NYC stage actor Philip Bosco, for instance, "showed up to shoot a scene the other day and didn't even know his relationship to Gena Rowlands (around whom the film is reported to revolve), because he hadn't seen the script in advance," said our source.

On behalf of the many talented "unknown" actors and "understudies" from Providence to Costa Mesa, I would like to comment on Dan Sullivan's implication that when understudies take over parts on Broadway (or anywhere), they are somehow of a lesser caliber than the "stars" or "names" they replace, and that they thus bring a "summer stock" quality to their performances ("Summer Stock in Big Apple," Aug. 23). Usually these talented, hard-working understudies have been with the play since it first went into production, and Actors Equity requires constant understudy rehearsals so that the actors are prepared in the event they must take over a part.
