    I think you have either the wrong % or placing for Barfly. Fantastic Faye Dunaway! I’m surprised Voyage of the Damned is placed so high and I never heard of Arizona Dream. I saw the rest and pretty much agree with their rankings. I do think Network was her best performance, but so many are great.

    Yeah, I made a typo with Barfly. It’s fixed now.

    Thanks. I also am surprised not to see Mommie Dearest somewhere.

    Voyage of the Damned is laughably bad. Such a close call among Bonnie & Clyde, Chinatown and Network as her best – looking back at her output in the ’70s makes Dunaway’s current state of affairs all the more sad.

    Given its reputation, did you really expect to see it in here?

    Re Mommie Dearest I’m not really sure of its reputation. I know there was a lot of criticism, but wasn’t it also a hit? I know I LMAO in the theatre and upon subsequent viewings. A lot of it was camp and way OTT. Dunaway gives it her all, though.

    It wasn’t critically acclaimed upon release.

    Alex, I mistakenly put you on ignore. Do you know how I can remove it?

    She blames it for destroying her career.

    Mommie Dearest actually got some good reviews for her and Dunaway was second at the New York Film Critics awards.

    I always thought it was a mistake for her to say it destroyed her career. Truth is she was about 40 and her career probably would have taken a hit anyway as most actresses did back then (and I guess even nowadays).

    I think part of why she hates it also has to do with making her ex husband a producer and then the marriage went really bad afterwards. I think it was a painful time for her. I wish she would embrace the film though since she worked hard on it.

    TCM has an hour long discussion coming up soon. It was taped at their festival last year. I don’t know when it airs. I heard Ben say that the take away from the interview was how hard a worker she was and the preparation that she put into her films. I guess sometimes that was taken the wrong way by people and she was considered “difficult”.

    I’m happy Faye is trying to make a comeback but The Bye Bye Man? We can do better for one of the greatest actresses to grace the screen!!!! Bonnie and Clyde will always be number 1 for me with Network close behind. Chinatown didn’t blow me away like it did for most.

    Mommie Dearest was indeed a big box office hit in 1981, and Dunaway garnered critical raves from the likes of Roger Ebert and Pauline Kael. What really left a bruise on her, though, was Paramount’s marketing campaign for the picture, which billed it as a Rocky Horror Picture-style camp event, with headlines like “Meet the baddest Mommie of ’em all.” Because of that, plus the middling reviews for the film itself and the (probably valid) chatter about her nasty behavior on-set, Dunaway’s career took a significant hit. Signing on to films like Supergirl and the dreary The Wicked Lady did not help.

    And at some point in the 80s she turned to television with a movie about Evita Peron and mini series like Beverly Hills Madam. :). I suppose Andrew Lloyd Weber firing her from Sunset Boulevard in the early 90s didn’t help, but I saw her on stage in Master Class in 1995 and she killed it as Maria Callas. There was talk of her producing a movie from the play, but I guess that didn’t come to pass.
