    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I have white ones and blue ones. They are one of my favorite flowers, second to sunflowers.

    She is (in terms of her publicity and fame, and how seriously she takes it and herself) the Joan Crawford of today (no reflection on, or reference to, how she treats her children intended at all).
    And to underscore VALuvsMKwan's point, I give you this link, with another actress playing essentially the same scene with much more conviction.

    That is Faye Dunaway, a cut from the original "Mommie Dearest". Ironic that she is attacking roses - Madonna's favorite. Maybe Joan liked hydrangeas

    Madonna's clip was more The Godfather (including the music).

    I would never have know those flowers were called hydrangeas if not for this thread. FSU - always educational. (14 pages??)

    Yep. The gardner here grows white ones. They go well with magnolia trees.
    But I like the pink and the purple more.

    Oh. How out of the flower loop I must be.
    I usually get daisies for birthdays.

    My kids will give me sunflowers. Two reasons, I love them and I'm not allergic to them.

    Dried hydrangeas make lovely floral arrangements. Of course, I never get to do that, those pesky deer and their ravenous appetites.

    Goodness knows. They're so pretty, I can't imagine why anyone hates them. But to each his own, I guess. I don't think sunflowers are pretty, but many people do!

    Short of seeing clips of Lypsinka (and what seems like 10,000 far less talented drag queens) performing to audio tracks of "Mommie Dearest", I wonder who has filmed a REMAKE (in response to your use of "original')? That would send the concept of high camp right on out of the solar system.

    Perhaps Ms. Ciccione Penn Ritchie would like to take on that project, skilled thespian that she is.

    They are ok in a garden but I wouldn't want them in a cut flower arrangement either.

    I thought that Vagabond thought the clip provided was not from the movie. So, I will change my word from original to actual or one and only.

    Five bucks says Madonna's daddy LURVES hydrangeas and that's why she loathes them.

    Is that deliberate or just a typo?

    After "Shanghai Surprise", I think the only thing she hated was acting lessons.

    It's entitled "Mommie Dearest - Rose Garden w/ Original Music" and says under the video:

    All current prints of "Mommie Dearest" are missing the underscoring for the dramatic rose garden sequence. It is reported that the master audio-track containing the music was damaged beyond repair, therefore the scene is presented without music on the DVD releases.

    Here is the scene with Henry Mancini's underscore, as taken from the original VHS edition.

    Sorry, the part I bolded confused me. I misunderstood, I thought you didn't know who the actress was and that is was a clip from the movie. Oops on me .

    No, just a typo. I didn't think it looked right, but I didn't look it up to confirm that her family name is "Ciccone".

    Perhaps the Freudian thought I had in typing it that way was that someone with so much self-interest and ego couldn't possibly have only one "i" in her last name.
