Yes, I'm well aware "Lisybabe" makes me sound like a teenage girl. But I was when I chose the handle and it kinda stuck.
Hollywood Images of Disability (CHF EDIT) from salome chasnoff on Vimeo.
Briliant video. Only criticism is when they mention Marlee Matlin, who is not only one of the few disabled actors who have managed to forge a career for themselves in Hollywood, but also, iirc, in Children of a Lesser God, she decides against the "cure" and the romantic lead has to come live in her world.Correct me if I'm wrong (only seen it once), but I feel that she's absolutely the wrong person to include in the list of non-disabled, predominantly male, actors who have won awards for cripping up. P.S Can we legitimately add Colin Firth to the list now, or does the King's Speech not count as a "curing story"? I haven't seen it yet.
