Synopsis

Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award nominee Stefanie Powers (Hart to Hart) stars as Tallulah Bankhead in Matthew Lombardo's hysterical comedy LOOPED. Southern, but by no means a belle, Tallulah Bankhead was known for wild partying and convention-defying exploits that surpassed even today's celebrity bad girls. Based on a true story, the play is set in a 1965 sound studio. Ms. Bankhead has been summoned to re-record, or loop, a single muffed line of dialogue from what would be her last film, Die, Die My Darling . It's a simple task, but ultimately takes hours when Bankhead arrives so inebriated she's unable to loop the line properly. What ensues is an uproarious showdown between an uptight film editor and the outrageous legend. Held hostage to Bankhead's antics, her recollections spill out as her talk turns to scandals and rumors that have followed her for years - bedding Gary Cooper and Joan Crawford, her disastrous turn in "A Streetcar Named Desire," and more. Ms. Powers could not be more perfect for the role, having co-starred with Bankhead in the very film that LOOPED is based upon.  "AS FUNNY AS IT GETS IN THEATRE!" raves The Hollywood Reporter. Don't miss this outrageous comedy!
