Hollywood Online: MovieTalk Interviews
This site (formerly called "BiteSite") contains several
interview clips (using "Real Audio"). They have added 9 new clips, from
an interview about "Dangerous Beauty", in addition to the 6 older clips.
They also have a very small picture of her
and a some minor biographical data. If you explore their site, they
have lots of multimedia from many movies.
Jacqueline was seen briefly on the E! network's show,
"Roman Polanski", one of their "True Hollywood Story" shows.
To find out when Jacqueline will be on TV this month, go to the
Bisset Page. You might also want to check their listings
for other stars, etc.
Jacqueline could be heard (but not seen) narrating
Impressionists on the Seine on PBS last year.
AMC Salute to Film Noir: I caught glimpses of Jacqueline in
the audience of this show on American Movie Classics that aired on
December 1st, 1997.
The December issue of "Inside Kung-Fu" magazine has this small black&white
photo of Jacqueline with her companion Emin Boztepe and some other
martial arts masters. This was pointed out to me by a Jacqueline
Bisset fan who is a student of Emin Boztepe (there was a website
that included more information about him and his school, but it is
down right now).
Jacqueline Around the World
Jacqueline Presided Over Montreal Film Jury
Jacqueline was in Montreal for the
Montreal World Film Festival (Festival des Films du Monde),
Aug. 22 to Sept. 2, 1997,
where she is president of the "official film jury". You can read the
Release, which includes a short bio, and has links to more
info about the film festival.
Another Montreal Film
Festival page, with info and a few pictures of Jacqueline.
Jacqueline on Another Film Jury
Jacqueline was on the jury of another film festival, in France.
If you check
page at their site, you'll see they "borrowed" some of my
scans. They also give a link to my old site.
Jacqueline Spotted in Moscow
Another fan reports that she and her husband met Jacqueline in the
Pushkin Fine Arts museum in Moscow. In her words:
"[Jacqueline] was there for the Moscow
International Movie Festival along with Robert De Niro, Jeoffrey Rush and
Sophia Loren. I have to tell you she is even more beautiful in person, with
the body of an eighteen-year old.... She was very nice to us and gave us an
autograph.... By the way she is even more popular
in Russia than she is here."
Jacqueline was also at the
Argentine Film Festival;
this site includes a couple of pictures of her.
1996 AFI Fest
Report includes a picture of Jacqueline. And
Mike Myers, a.k.a. Austin Powers
Apparently Mike Myers (of "Wayne's World" fame) (and/or Mike McCullers?)
is a Jacqueline Bisset fan. The a tie-in book,
Austin Powers: How To Be an International Man of Mystery, by
Mike McCullers, has a section
entitled, "Top Ten Birds, Then and Now" (that is, 1967 and 1997). The
only woman to make both lists is Jacqueline Bisset!
See the Links Page for more links.
According to some 1970s movie magazines, Jacqueline is 5' 6 1/2'' tall.
TV: The Simpsons
In an episode from the 14th season, "Large Marge", the Old Sea Captain
(Captain McAllister) sings
Jacqueline Bisset in my favorite film, 'The Deep.'"
This was 25 years after the movie's release.
The 18th episode of the third season of Cheers (the sitcom) has
a Jacqueline Bisset connection. The episode is titled
Bet". An old drinking acquaintance (played by Michael Richards,
"Kramer" of Seinfeld) of Sam's (Ted Danson) visits the
bar to remind Sam of a bet they made. Sam claimed he would marry
Jacqueline Bisset by a certain date (now just a day away); if not, the
other guy gets the bar. Though the agreement
would probably not stand up in court,
Sam doesn't want his old drinking problems dredged up in public again.
Carla comes up with the scheme to find another woman named
"Jacqueline Bisset" (rather than the movie star) for Sam to marry in time
to win the bet. They find such a woman, though the marriage doesn't take
place. So in this
episode, the actress Laurie Walters plays
"Jacqueline Bisset". [At one time, the Internet Movie Database had
this confused, and listed this episode of Cheers in
In the third verse of his song
in the Rain, Al (Year of the Cat) Stewart
sings about Jacqueline:
I saw your movie
Wondered if you really felt that way
Do you ever fear
The images of Hollywood?
Have you felt a shadow of its pain?
I thought of you in Clifton in the rain.
He sings her last name as "bis-SAY".
The song originally appeared on the album Bedsitter Images;
it was included on the collection Al Stewart: The Early Years
(1977) and more recently on To Whom It May Concern.
I don't know what year the song was written, or which movie it
refers to. The link listed above has the complete lyrics, and links
to the guitar chords. There is some discussion of the song and the
reference to Jacqueline in the
Al Stewart Mailing List
In "Cul-De-Sac", Jacqueline played a
character named "Jacqueline", but was billed as "Jackie Bisset"; in
"Two for the Road", she played
a character named "Jackie", but was billed as "Jacqueline Bisset".
