When a woman learns of an immortality treatment, she sees it as a way to outdo her long-time rival.
A pneumatic bra was built to create the effect where Meryl Streep's breasts become higher and firmer after drinking the potion, but the effect didn't look realistic enough. In order to get the shot, Streep's dresser stood behind her, out of sight of the camera, and pushed her breasts into position.
Can you believe that? A musical version of "Sweet Bird of Youth."Who are they kidding?
Opening Woman: Thank God you wanted to leave...
Second Woman: Can you believe Madeline Ashton? Talk about waking the dead.
Second Man: I gotta get a drink...
The moral of the movie may be that eternal youth is more of a curse than a blessing, yet during the ballroom scene we meet a large number of immortals who are having no problems at all.
