Mel’s Diner – a greasy-spoon truck-stop in Phoenix, Arizona – was the setting for this US comedy series.

The title character, Alice Hyatt (Linda Lavin), was an aspiring singer who arrived in Phoenix from New Jersey with her teenage son, Tommy (Philip McKeon), after the recent death of her truck-driver husband, Don.

Alice was hired at a diner owned by Mel Sharples (Vic Tayback) – a gravel-voiced, male-chauvinist fry cook – where she worked as a waitress while awaiting her big break at fame.

Alice’s co-workers were the raucous, red-headed man-hungry Flo (Polly Holliday) – who was fond of telling people to “kiss my grits” – and the young, naive and impressionable Vera (Beth Howland).

Flo was later replaced by Belle Dupree (Diane Ladd), a Southern blonde, who was in turn soon replaced by the spunky ex-truck driver Jolene (Celia Weston).

In 1980, after the character of Flo proved popular with the audience, CBS gave Polly Holliday her own spin-off, called, in the spirit of its parent series, Flo.

The show related Flo’s adventures running a roadhouse in her hometown of Cowtown, Texas, but lasted only a little more than a year.

Alice and her friends experienced several interesting years together at Mel’s Diner, which was frequented by quirky truck drivers, repairmen, and other blue-collar types and by several Hollywood celebrities, who appeared as themselves.

In later seasons Vera got married to the lovable policeman Elliot (Charles Levin), and in the very last episode Mel sold the diner to a contractor, Vera was pregnant, Jolene opened a beauty salon and Alice finally got her dream of being a singer and was moving to Nashville as the lead vocalist with a band.

The show was around for nine seasons and was a TV version of the Oscar-winning movie Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (1975) with Ellen Burstyn. Vic Tayback played Mel in both the movie and series.

Mel’s Diner was sold in the final episode and so was its set. One of the buyers was Columbia Pictures, who planned to use some of the furnishings in a future production.

Alice‘s theme song, There’s A New Girl In Town, sung by Linda Lavin at the start of each show, was written by Alan and Marilyn Bergman and David Shire.

Biography:After eking out a modest living as a piano teacher in Alabama and Florida, Polly Holliday switched to acting, spending ten seasons with the Asolo State Theater in Sarasota. In 1973, Holliday headed for New York, where she was cast in Murray Schisgal's Broadway play All Over Town; her director was Dustin Hoffman. All Over Town led to the tiny but pivotal role as a testy secretary in the Dustin Hoffman-Robert Redford feature All the President's Men (1976)--which, in turn, led to Holliday's being cast as wise-cracking waitress Florence Jean "Flo" Castleberry in the TV sitcom Alice (1976-80). Rising to nationwide fame by virtue of her oft-repeated catchphrase "Kiss mah grits!", Holliday earned four Emmy nominations and one Golden Globe Award.

Gremlins Mrs. Deagle (Polly Holliday)

Kiss Her Grits

Polly Holliday was previously known as Flo on the TV show Alice. Flo was a sassy waitress who smacked her gum and spouted, "Kiss my grits."

That attitude makes her perfect for the cruel Mrs. Ruby Deagle, a woman who would evict a tenant on Christmas Eve if they were overdue on rent.

According to the news report, Mrs. Deagle is the "widow of convicted stock-swindler Donald Deagle." She's the Ebenezer Scrooge of Kingston Falls. What's the female equivalent of Ebenezer? Ebenezra? Ebenezerette?

She's also a bit of a Wicked Witch who took a wrong turn trying to get back to Oz. You can imagine the Wicked Witch's iconic theme song in Mrs. Deagle's first scene, where she storms through Kingston Falls. She even walks in front of cars, because Mrs. Deagle doesn't stop for traffic; traffic stops for her.

The Softer Side of Deagle

Mrs. Deagle doesn't just threaten Billy's job. Here she is threatening to put his dog in her dryer.

MRS. DEAGLE: I'll catch the beast myself. Then he'll get what he deserves. A slow, painful death. Maybe I'll put him in my spin dryer on high heat.

Let that sink in: she threatens to murder a dog in the dryer.

Because of that, it's easy to root for the Gremlins when they kill her at the end of the movie. So, if you want to continue enjoying that grim scene guilt free, stop reading here.

Before Mrs. Deagle dies, we get a glimpse of her in her home. She's too weak to climb the stairs on her own. Her husband is dead, so her only company is her cats. (No wonder she hates dogs.) The cats' names are Kopeck, Ruble, and Dollar Bill, showing us Mrs. Deagle's sad, loveless life, where her only goal in life is money.

It's pathetic, really. And we almost feel pity for her. When the Gremlins attack, Mrs. Deagle pleads to God, or some other deity, to spare her.

MRS. DEAGLE: They're here! They've come for me. I… I'm not ready. I'm not ready yet. I'm not ready.

In a less cartoonish movie, this would be a horrific scene. The villain repents, but it's too late.

However, this is Gremlins, not Citizen Kane so we, and everyone else, rejoice when Mrs. Deagle's motorchair goes haywire and flings her out a window to her death.

Face it, we all have a little bit of gremlin inside of us.

Her character's catchphrase of "Kiss my grits!" remains perhaps the most memorable line associated with the series Alice.

Early life[edit]

Holliday was born in Jasper, Alabama, the daughter of Ernest Sullivan Holliday, a truck driver, and Velma Mabell Holliday (née Cain).[1] She grew up in Childersburg and Sylacauga, where her brother Doyle's boyhood friend Jim Nabors lived. Before acting, Holliday worked as a piano teacher in her native Alabama, and then in Florida. She began her acting career as a member of the Asolo Theatre Company in Sarasota, Florida, where she stayed for 10 years.

Career[edit]

In 1973, Holliday moved to New York City and appeared in Alice Childress's play Wedding Band at the Public Theater. More than a year later, she was cast in the Broadway hit All Over Town. While working on All Over Town, she befriended the play's director, Dustin Hoffman, who later worked with her on the 1976 movie All the President's Men.

In 1976 Holliday was cast — in what would be her major break — as sassy, man-hungry waitress Flo Castleberry on the American sitcom Alice. Her character coined the popular catchphrase "Kiss my grits!" The phrase became part of the American vocabulary. Holliday starred in Alice from 1976 to 1980, and then moved to her own short-lived spin-off show, titled Flo, in which Flo left her residence in Arizona and moved back home.

In 1983, Holliday joined the cast of the CBS-TV sitcom Private Benjamin as a temporary replacement for series regular Eileen Brennan, who was recovering from serious injuries after being struck by a car.[4]

Holliday also made appearances on television shows such as The Golden Girls, where she played Rose Nylund's blind sister Lily, in a recurring role as Jill Taylor's mother on Home Improvement, and a regular character on The Client.

Holliday's notable roles in films include All the President's Men, Moon Over Parador, Mrs. Doubtfire, the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap and her role as Mrs. Ruby Deagle in the 1984 hit Gremlins, for which she won the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress.

On the Broadway stage, she has appeared in revivals of Arsenic and Old Lace (1986) as Martha Brewster, one of the dotty, homicidal, sweet old aunties; Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1990), for which she was nominated for a Tony for her portrayal of Big Mama; and Picnic (1994). She also appeared in the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap as the director of Camp Walden. In 2000, she appeared at Lincoln Center in a revival of Arthur Laurents's The Time of the Cuckoo.

Holliday was born in Jasper, Alabama, the daughter of Ernest Sullivan Holliday, a truck driver, and Velma Mabell Holliday (née Cain).[1] She grew up in Childersburg and Sylacauga, where her brother Doyle's boyhood friend Jim Nabors lived. Before acting, Holliday worked as a piano teacher in her native Alabama, and then in Florida. She began her acting career as a member of the Asolo Theatre Company in Sarasota, Florida, where she stayed for 10 years. Holliday is an Episcopalian who sang in the St. Andrews Episcopal Choir in Mobile, Alabama[2] and in January 2010 she appeared as herself in an official advertisement campaign for the Episcopal Church.[3] In New York City, she sang in the Grace Church (Episcopal) Choral Society in Greenwich Village and ran a chamber music series there called the Willow Ensemble (1995-2008).

Career[edit]

In 1973, Holliday moved to New York City and appeared in Alice Childress's play Wedding Band at the Public Theater. More than a year later, she was cast in the Broadway hit All Over Town. While working on All Over Town, she befriended the play's director, Dustin Hoffman, who later worked with her on the 1976 movie All the President's Men.

In 1976 Holliday was cast — in what would be her major break — as sassy, man-hungry waitress Flo Castleberry on the American sitcom Alice. Her character coined the popular catchphrase "Kiss my grits!" The phrase became part of the American vocabulary. Holliday starred in Alice from 1976 to 1980, and then moved to her own short-lived spin-off show, titled Flo, in which Flo left her residence in Arizona and moved back home. The show was successful during its abbreviated first season, but ratings declined during the following season due to a time change, and it was canceled in 1981.[4]

In 1983, Holliday joined the cast of the CBS-TV sitcom Private Benjamin as a temporary replacement for series regular Eileen Brennan, who was recovering from serious injuries after being struck by a car.[4]

Holliday also made appearances on television shows such as The Golden Girls, where she played Rose Nylund's blind sister Lily, in a recurring role as Jill Taylor's mother on Home Improvement, and a regular character on The Client.

Holliday's notable roles in films include All the President's Men, Moon Over Parador, Mrs. Doubtfire, the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap and her role as Mrs. Ruby Deagle in the 1984 hit Gremlins, for which she won the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress.

On the Broadway stage, she has appeared in revivals of Arsenic and Old Lace (1986) as Martha Brewster, one of the dotty, homicidal, sweet old aunties; Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1990), for which she was nominated for a Tony for her portrayal of Big Mama; and Picnic (1994). She also appeared in the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap as the director of Camp Walden. In 2000, she appeared at Lincoln Center in a revival of Arthur Laurents's The Time of the Cuckoo.

In 2000, she was inducted into the Alabama Stage and Screen Hall of Fame.[5]

Gremlins Mrs. Deagle (Polly Holliday)

Kiss Her Grits

Polly Holliday was previously known as Flo on the TV show Alice. Flo was a sassy waitress who smacked her gum and spouted, "Kiss my grits."

That attitude makes her perfect for the cruel Mrs. Ruby Deagle, a woman who would evict a tenant on Christmas Eve if they were overdue on rent.

According to the news report, Mrs. Deagle is the "widow of convicted stock-swindler Donald Deagle." She's the Ebenezer Scrooge of Kingston Falls. What's the female equivalent of Ebenezer? Ebenezra? Ebenezerette?

She's also a bit of a Wicked Witch who took a wrong turn trying to get back to Oz. You can imagine the Wicked Witch's iconic theme song in Mrs. Deagle's first scene, where she storms through Kingston Falls. She even walks in front of cars, because Mrs. Deagle doesn't stop for traffic; traffic stops for her.

The Softer Side of Deagle

Mrs. Deagle doesn't just threaten Billy's job. Here she is threatening to put his dog in her dryer.

MRS. DEAGLE: I'll catch the beast myself. Then he'll get what he deserves. A slow, painful death. Maybe I'll put him in my spin dryer on high heat.

Let that sink in: she threatens to murder a dog in the dryer.

Because of that, it's easy to root for the Gremlins when they kill her at the end of the movie. So, if you want to continue enjoying that grim scene guilt free, stop reading here.

Before Mrs. Deagle dies, we get a glimpse of her in her home. She's too weak to climb the stairs on her own. Her husband is dead, so her only company is her cats. (No wonder she hates dogs.) The cats' names are Kopeck, Ruble, and Dollar Bill, showing us Mrs. Deagle's sad, loveless life, where her only goal in life is money.

It's pathetic, really. And we almost feel pity for her. When the Gremlins attack, Mrs. Deagle pleads to God, or some other deity, to spare her.

MRS. DEAGLE: They're here! They've come for me. I… I'm not ready. I'm not ready yet. I'm not ready.

In a less cartoonish movie, this would be a horrific scene. The villain repents, but it's too late.

However, this is Gremlins, not Citizen Kane so we, and everyone else, rejoice when Mrs. Deagle's motorchair goes haywire and flings her out a window to her death.

Face it, we all have a little bit of gremlin inside of us.

1 9 7 6 – 1 9 8 5 (USA)
209 x 30 minute episodes

Mel’s Diner – a greasy-spoon truck-stop in Phoenix, Arizona – was the setting for this US comedy series.

The title character, Alice Hyatt (Linda Lavin), was an aspiring singer who arrived in Phoenix from New Jersey with her teenage son, Tommy (Philip McKeon), after the recent death of her truck-driver husband, Don.

Alice was hired at a diner owned by Mel Sharples (Vic Tayback) – a gravel-voiced, male-chauvinist fry cook – where she worked as a waitress while awaiting her big break at fame.

alice62

Alice’s co-workers were the raucous, red-headed man-hungry Flo (Polly Holliday) – who was fond of telling people to “kiss my grits” – and the young, naive and impressionable Vera (Beth Howland).

Flo was later replaced by Belle Dupree (Diane Ladd), a Southern blonde, who was in turn soon replaced by the spunky ex-truck driver Jolene (Celia Weston).

In 1980, after the character of Flo proved popular with the audience, CBS gave Polly Holliday her own spin-off, called, in the spirit of its parent series, Flo.

The show related Flo’s adventures running a roadhouse in her hometown of Cowtown, Texas, but lasted only a little more than a year.

Alice and her friends experienced several interesting years together at Mel’s Diner, which was frequented by quirky truck drivers, repairmen, and other blue-collar types and by several Hollywood celebrities, who appeared as themselves.

alice_674There were several interesting regular customers, including Henry (Marvin Kaplan) and Earl (Dave Madden of Partridge Family fame).

In later seasons Vera got married to the lovable policeman Elliot (Charles Levin), and in the very last episode Mel sold the diner to a contractor, Vera was pregnant, Jolene opened a beauty salon and Alice finally got her dream of being a singer and was moving to Nashville as the lead vocalist with a band.

The show was around for nine seasons and was a TV version of the Oscar-winning movie Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (1975) with Ellen Burstyn. Vic Tayback played Mel in both the movie and series.

Mel’s Diner was sold in the final episode and so was its set. One of the buyers was Columbia Pictures, who planned to use some of the furnishings in a future production.

Alice‘s theme song, There’s A New Girl In Town, sung by Linda Lavin at the start of each show, was written by Alan and Marilyn Bergman and David Shire.

The HUAC hearings of the late 1940s and early 50s ruined the careers of many of Hollywood's best writers and directors. The ones hardest hit by this witch hunt were Jules Dassin, John Penn, Waldo Salt, Dalton Trumbo, and Martin Ritt.

In 1975, Salt, Dassin, Trumbo and Ritt viewed a screener beta tape copy of Martin Scorsese's movie "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore," and, with no blacklisting and Hollywood production code to trip them up, set about turning Scorsese's little bittersweet film into a TV sitcom. Starring Linda Lavin in Ellen Burstyn's original role and returning Vic Tayback as Mel Sharples, the diner owner/cook with the salty vocabulary, the quartet of unfriendly Hollywood Ten witnesses set about creating a situation comedy that was so subtle in imparting its socialist messages of racial/class/gender equality that it did so with an all-white cast, which included Nancy McKeon's (The Facts of Life) brother Phillip as the boy with the single mother, predating the Murphy Brown controversy by at least 15 years.

Getting "Alice" past the TV censors--a.k.a., the Sponsors--was no problem at all, because the crypto-communist messages of class division were cast as mere household and workplace spats within the well-worn paradigm of the comedy of manners.

The chief instigator for the socialistic message of racial equality, surprisingly, was PollyHolliday, co-starring as the sassy, backtalking, Southern gal (read: black) waitress Flo. When she told oppressive male diner owner (read: capitalist honky) Mel to "Kiss My Grits," Holliday's retort represented a very thinly-veiled comeback that downtrodden black Americans secretly wanted to unleash against their white racist overlords. Beth Howland as Vera was a stand in for lesbians, though her lesbianism was only implied in the faintest manner possible (her plain looks and lack of makeup), though she did foreshadow "Ellen" by more than two decades.

While its producers meant "Alice" to be a modern version of a strike play (e.g., "Waiting for Lefty"). it totally went over audiences' heads. Although the class divisions (working poor versus oppressive boss poor) were sharply delineated, viewers could access *actual* racial tensions in the Norman Lear shows "All In the Family" and its spinoff, "The Jeffersons." In those programs, viewers could watch actual racial confrontations between polly holliday kiss my grits bigot Archie Bunker (Carroll O'Connor) and "uppity" black George Jefferson (Sherman Hemsley).

Unfortunately, Marxist critics were quick to point out, even those shows got the class disparity angle wrong by portraying Archie Bunker as a member of a favored social class (blue collar everyman) and Jefferson as a member of the oppressor class (black entrepreneur owner of a chain of drycleaners).

In his groundbreaking monograph on the inherent class and racial divisions in both "Alice" and "The Jeffersons," leading postmodernist critic Jean-Francois Lyotard opined that these ostensible socialists had lived too many decades under the oppressive capitalist American system, which had engrained a counter-productive bourgeoise prejudice in their latent assumptions of racial, class and gender biases.

For a more extensive critique on the latent racism, sexism and homophobia in American sitcoms, read Lyotard's monograph, "Engrained Counter-countercultural Bourgeoise Latencies of White American Socialist Television Creative Male Writers and Producers in the Late Twentieth Century," Harvard U Press, 1998.
