Margaret Ladd: "What's up, Scarlet?" DVD Release

After being absent from TV for 14 years, Margaret Ladd starred in 2005 in the movie "What's up, Scarlet?".
It's a small role, but at least we can see "Emma" again.

On April 28, 2009, this movie was released on DVD.

Scarlet Zabrinski, (Susan Priver, star of Mafioso and My Brother Jack) a successful, hard edged, L.A. matchmaker lives in the shadow of her overbearing mother, Ruth Zabrinski (Sally Kirkland, Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner for Anna) who relentlessly tries to find the perfect man for her daughter. Ben Zabrinski, (Jere Burns star of Good Morning Miami, The Mommies, Bob, Dear John) Scarlet's pot smoking brother, an unemployed lawyer, becomes furious when Scarlet unknowingly sets him up with a porno star. When Sabrina Fisser, (Musetta Vander, of Kicking and Screaming and Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?) a homeless foreign actress, rear ends her on a calm sunny afternoon, Scarlet offers this seemingly helpless vagabond a place to stay for one night. One night becomes an eternity as the free spirited Sabrina outstays her welcome. When a vengeful Ben tries to seduce Sabrina, Scarlet finds herself protective of her new friend. A mutual attraction develops and the two unlikely characters explore the uncharted territory of unexpected love.

  • "A refreshing and unusual screen couple." - LA Times

  • "Compelling" - Variety
The movie was shown at several Gay and Lesbian Film Festivals (San Francisco, Barcelona).

This is so cool, seeing Margaret again, acting just like in old days... I hope they have her included in case they ever plan to do a get-together for promoting the FC-DVDs!

Yeah, I love Margaret so much. She's a great actress and I hope to see more of her in future. I was totally suprised when I found out about that movie she was in.
