Dark Monday • Shirley's Still Here

Postcards From The Edge Postcards From The Edge

Shirley MacLaine appeared in her first film in 1955, with a star turn in Alfred Hitchcock's The Trouble With Harry. Thirty-five years later, and a career that includes some of the great films and performances of our time, MacLaine returned to the screen in a bravura performance in Postcards From The Edge, Carrie Fisher's semi-autobiographical story about growing up the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher. MacLaine pulled from her vast experience in the entertainment industry to deliver this show-stopping number, I'm Still Here. The song was originally written by Stephen Sondheim for his show Follies. This is Shirley giving it the Hollywood treatment.
