Tanna Frederick Enters Jaglom's Lair of Talent
Posted by Tommy Garrett on Dec 14, 2008 - 10:59:37 PM

Tanna Frederick’s turn from farm girl of Iowa to movie starlet was the last time we saw the diva in the Henry Jaglom classic “Hollywood Dreams.” That was 2006. Fast Forward to 2008, the actress and legendary director make another great epic on film. This film, “Queen of the Lot,” has Frederick, a Bette Davis styled actress facing the more Lindsay Lohan contemporary dilemmas. DUI or two, trouble career after having hit movies on her resume. The credits are about to fall, when in comes a brainstorm of Margie’s. She’s figured out that she is not about to go down in flames and end up on skid row or a Hollywood one hit wonder. Frederick maneuvers and figures out how to save her career. Fans will love this latest twist in the sequel to “Hollywood Dreams.” And they will love the new vision, the great visionary himself Henry Jaglom has for Frederick, Margie and the viewers.

“Queen of the Lot” began filming this week in Hollywood with great fan fare. Anytime you put this incredible actress on the canvas with the skills of Hollywood’s most fascinating and talented director, you are bound to see greatness. Jaglom’s “Irene in Time” hasn’t been released yet, but Tanna Frederick plays a whole new character. The actress can’t continue being ignored by the Academy. She’s a force of nature on screen. But no one creates a character and a storyline like Jaglom, who is best known for cult classics like “Eating” and “Shopping.”

Jaglom may be as mysterious as they come. Not since the great Orson Welles’ “Citizen Kane” has there been so much buzz in Hollywood about a film, many are dying to see put together. Everyone believes that Frederick is the best newcomer since Bette Davis. That’s right folks, not Kate Winslett, Cate Blanchett or even Halle Berry compare on the screen to the actual innate acting ability. Not since Bette Davis stepped on the sound stage at the famed Warner Brothers in the early 1920s has anyone seen an actress who encompasses and exudes such an array of emotions and talent.

Confidence is what Henry Jaglom exudes and a keen eye for a real story is what he’s best known for. Not since 1938 with David O Selznick has there been so many headshots and resumes sent to a movie maker. For that era, it was “Gone with the Wind.” For this era, it’s “Queen of the Lot.” Jaglom is a master. Audiences worldwide trust his version of the truth. We all want to experience his deliberate yet forceful stories and characters. Jaglom, Frederick. Soon to become synonymous like Bette Davis, Willie Wyler.

“Queen of the Lot” as well as “Irene in Time” will both be released in theaters in 2009.
