Which Movies Should Become the Next Broadway Musicals?
by Mark Blankenship


Greg: How about the wonderful Mrs. Henderson Presents, which stars Judi Dench as a theatre owner who becomes notorious for staging all-nude revues? As I was watching, I kept thinking it was crying out for a musical adaptation.
Mark: Ooh, yes! First of all, that musical would have an amazing lead role for an older star. I always love getting to see a seasoned actress remind us that she’s still got the goods.
Greg: Yes! But let’s just get Dame Judi to do it! She’s still acting on the stage, at least in London, and we know she can sing.
Mark: Do you realize how many people would have meltdowns if Judi Dench starred in a stage version of Mrs. Henderson Presents? You’d have to line Shubert Alley with EMTs.

there aren’t enough ambulances in new york city to handle all the meltdowns!

Dame Judi Dench pens foreword for Bananagrams book

By Billy Langsworthy

AUGUST 12TH 2014 AT 11:30AM 
UPDATED AUGUST 12TH 2014 AT 12:06PM

Bond star was introduced to the game by her daughter.

Oscar-winning actress Dame Judi Dench has written the foreword for The Collins Little Book of Bananagrams.

The book has been written by the brand’s creative consultant Deej Johnson and word-game champion Mark Nyman, and contains ‘curious words and fascinating facts’.

“We have known for some time that Dame Judi Dench is a fan of Bananagrams, a game she discovered when her daughter introduced her to it a few years ago,” said Bananagrams founder Rena Nathanson. 

“When putting the book together, we approached her about writing the foreword and I was absolutely thrilled when she said yes. 

“For me, it’s the icing on the cake and we’re all really excited that she’s agreed to be part of The Collins Little Book of Bananagrams.”

The book will be available globally from October 2nd.

an hour with judi dench

(actually, 1 hour 11 minutes 22 seconds)

you have to scroll down the page to get to her video 

she’s so gorgeous that she’s shot in close up almost exclusively and she has no make up on and her hair’s not done and although it was scheduled you get the feeling that two guys just dropped in for a chat.  

the last 5 minutes are the best - she looks down and realizes that her top is askew because of the mic clip and adjusts her neckline,  she stretches and is just so freaking sexy!

Judi Dench has a lot riding on Peeps
Dame Judi Dench’s filly Peeps makes her debut at Newmarket.

Although actors don’t normally care to work with children or animals, Dame Judi Dench can make an exception. She has high hopes today for Peeps, her two year-old-filly, when it makes its debut at Newmarket.


Still, Mark Tompkins, Peeps’s trainer, is endearingly honest when I inquire if it’s worth a flutter. “Only a fool would bet on a filly that’s not run before,” he advises.


Dame Judi, who co-owns Peeps with her driver Bryan Agar, did well with her last horse, Smokey Oakey, also trained by Tompkins: it notched up seven victories.


“Mark bred Peeps at his stud,” says Agar. “Like Smokey, he owns part of the horse, with Judi and myself owning 25 per cent each.”


Peeps will be ridden by Ted Durcan in today’s 2pm race, but Tompkins is philosophical about whether Dame Judi, will be able to make it along to cheer. “She is a workaholic, sadly,” he says.
