Author and actress Carole Mallory is teaching acting at Temple Ambler beginning October 3 through November 14. Mallory has appeared in Looking for Mr. Goodbar as a friend of Diane Keaton’s and filmed over a dozen movies. Her TV appearances include: the Tony Randall Show and several All in the Family episodes during which Carroll O’Connor said, “You are a talented comedian.” Mallory played a pregnant woman who, instead of going to an obstetrician, went to a veterinarian. Brave New World, Charlie’s Angels, Starsky and Hutch, Police Story are some of her credits. Clips of her performances can be seen on www.carolemallory.com. When she filmed Take the Job and Shove It, tired of the casting couch, she quit acting to write about her Holllywood experiences. Contact 267 468 8500 to register @ Temple.
On September 18 at the Lower Providence Public Library she will be teaching the wisdom of her mentor Norman Mailer, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of 36 books. Kurt Vonnegut, known for his gallows humor was also a mentor. His masterpiece was Slaughterhouse Five. Mallory will be teaching Vonnegut’s emphasis on witty, punchy dialogue to liven up boring prose. “Being a famous writer is like being in the Lacrosse Hall of Fame and that exciting,” Vonnegut said.
Mallory’s classes won’t be boring. Loving Mailer, Flash and Picasso’s Ghost about her engagement to Picasso’s son, Claude, and letting go of the past, are her the books she has written. She writes columns for the Huffington Post, Hollywood’s the Wrap and Yahoo Voices. Currently she is finishing her memoir, My Friendship with Kurt Vonnegut and Joseph Heller.
