More Details

Synopsis:
The story of a deep friendship, lasting from childhood to beyond death, between two very different women -- one a poor but ambitious Jewish girl from the Bronx who goes on to become a famous Broadway star, and the other an attractive WASP from a wealthy San Francisco family who starts out with all the advantages in life yet manages to find nothing but disappointment.

Notes:
Estimated budget $20 million. Shot in Metrocolor. Eugenia Weston designed Bette Midler's makeup and Bob Mills applied it; Barbara Lorenz was Ms. Midler's hairstylist. Critically-lauded screen debut of young actress Mayim Bialik, who in the early 90s became the star of a popular television sitcom called "Blossom". Working titles for the film were "Friends" and "Remember Me."
