Real-Life Broadway Danny Rose Dies
Talent agent Ruth Webb was quite a character, from the live racoons she nursed to the Hollywood legends she revitalized after everyone else had given up on them (hello, Mickey Rooney). But my favorite story from her very entertaining obit is this nugget: Tonya Harding (of Nancy Kerrigan/skating scandal fame) turned down a part in a Woody Allen movie "because she abhorred his morals." Wow, you know Woody was at a low point when Tonya Harding could take the high ground on him.
