I’m reminded of Olympia Dukakis in Steel Magnolias to Daryl Hannah. “Annelle, ya gotta lighten up. “ 😂
Implausible fan theory: Olympia Dukakis' character in 'Steel Magnolias' is a distant relative of Bob Belcher's family
you've never seen "Steel Magnolias?" if you love Shirley Maclaine, Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Oly…
My life goal is Olympia Dukakis in Steel Magnolias.
I'm Sally Field right now. Steel Magnolias is such a great film! I have relatives like Olympia Dukakis:)
Wasn't one of the Steel Magnolias named Clarice. Olympia Dukakis I think.
When I read this I see Olympia Dukakis in Steel Magnolias talking about the wretched, horrible, evil, wicked Weezer
If you put Olympia Dukakis from Steel Magnolias in The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, that's what I'm gonna be like as an old lady.
Directed by Herbert Ross. With Shirley Maclaine, Olympia Dukakis, Sally Field, Julia Roberts. Revolving around Truvy's Beauty Parlor in a small parish in modern-day Louisiana, STEEL MAGNOLIAS is the story of a close-knit circle of friends whose lives come together there. As the picture opens, we fin…
Just finished watching Steel Magnolias. Brilliant. one of my favourite lines is when Shirley Maclaine says to Olympia Dukakis "you are evil and you must be destroyed." It's a Classic.
No matter how hard you try there is no way you can remake the original Steel Magnolias or replace the original cast! Call it re-imagining call it what you want! There is NO replacing Shirley Maclaine, Olympia Dukakis, Dolly Parton, Julia Roberts or Sally Fields. Love Queen Latifah, but nah!!
Well, I didn't know that the movie "Steel Magnolias" made in 1989 was made again same title and all in 2012 featuring Queen Latifah as "M'Lynn", Phylicia Rashad as "Clairee", Adepero Oduye as "Annelle", Condola Rashad as "Shelby", Jill Scott as "Truvy", Alfre Woodard as "Quiver", Michael Bradley as "Spud", and Lance Gross as "Sammy". The one from 1989 has Sally Field as "M'Lynn Eatenton", Dolly Person as "Truvy Jones", Shirley Maclaine as "Quiser Boudreaux", Daryl Hannah as "Annelle Dupuy Desoto", Olympia Dukakis as "Clairee Belcher", Julia Roberts as "Shelby", Tom Severity as "Drum", Sam Shepard as "Spud Jones", etc etc.., Anyway, ALL awesome actors and actresses. Both VERY good movie's.
I received a letter today from someone. He expressed sympathy and support (which I appreciate ). His letter says, "sometimes life just *** " So well put. But for all the really crappy times there are thousands of happy times. But those low moments and trials take the breath out of people. I keep thinking about that scene in Steel Magnolias when Sally Field is just so angry at the funeral and wants to scream. Olympia Dukakis pushes Shirley Mclaine towards her and says "here, hit 'weeza'." Mark loved that movie and that scene. Are there any volunteers to be my "weeza"? Because I find myself drifting in and out of that anger phase. At this very moment I am feeling peace. I get periodic waves of sadness. But I am taking deep breaths and thinking about happy moments. Yes, it is going to be a long and difficult road. But I am so blessed with friends and family who are there for me. I know I will be ok Christmas is here and I have to make this as joyous as I can. After all, it is not all about me and my is ...

Steel Magnolias! Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis, Shirley Mac, Dolly Parton - you can't beat it!!
Steel Magnolias stars Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley Maclaine, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis, and Julia Roberts. Doubt it'd be made now.

"if you dont have anything nice to say, come sit by me" -Olympia Dukakis, Steel Magnolias
Watching "Steel Magnolias" (1989) on CMT right now -- this cast is awesome! Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Olympia Dukakis, Shirley Maclaine, Dylan Mcdermott, Tom Skeritt, Julia Roberts and Darryl Hannah -- one of my all-time favorites! :)
So, I've probably quoted it before, but my favorite line from Steel Magnolias is Olympia Dukakis', "If you haven't got anything nice to say.come sit by me!"
I'm sure that she is a wonderful woman but does Olympia Dukakis deserve a star on Hollywood Blvd.? I'd argue no. While the 81-year-old Greek actress has continued to work since appearing in her breakout role as Cher's mom in "Moonstruck," Dukakis has had few real career highpoints (except for "Steel Magnolias") that would demand a Hollywood star. She is scheduled to get her star in front of the Pantages at 11:30 (with guest speakers Ed Asner and Diane Ladd - DL has a star that I would argue was also not deserved).

Olympia Dukakis in "Steel Magnolias. That was rather a compliment.

Watching Steel Magnolias. The banter between Shirley Maclaine & Olympia Dukakis is brilliant. Some of the best banter in celluloid.
I agree. Olympia Dukakis is amazing! loved her as Clairee in Steel Magnolias.
Can there be a remake of Steel Magnolias w/ Sally Fields, Dolly Parton, Olympia Dukakis, Shirley Maclaine, Julia Roberts, and Daryl Hannah?❤
My dog willl not eat while I am gone, so travels may be limited-"I love you more than my luggage" (Olympia Dukakis,Steel Magnolias)-so true.
It's actually Olympia Dukakis running as Clairee from Steel Magnolias. Got on the ballot in defiance of the awful remake
Some things should simply be left alone. "Steel Magnolias" is one of those things. The remake on Lifetime.BIG MISTAKE!! Never mess with perfection. Nobody can top Sally Field, Julia Roberts, Dolly Parton, Shirley McLaine, Olympia Dukakis, Darryl Hannah. They were made for those roles.

Two back to back good movies last night. Steel Magnolias all-star cast hit the ball out the park. The acting was superb. The queen demonstrates broad acting skills. I wasn't sure she'd pull it off as the mother of a twenty-something, but she did. She had me crying in that hospital scene when Shelby was taken off the machines. Phylicia played that Olympia Dukakis role to the hilt. She even looked liked Olympia at one point. I was laughing so hard when Phylicia and Alfre did the, "Go on. Hit her!" scene. Rashad's daughter pulled me in as the sick, but lively Shelby. And the newcomer who played Darryl Hannah's role was memorable as well. Overall, I give the movie 5 stars. The Carlina story was a brutal commentary on scattered families, and the disabling power of money. I know what it's like to be between two families; not an easy thing. Very confusing and someone's feelings always gets hurt. I give this movie a 5 for its realistic portrayal.
The new Steel Magnolias was good…but it was NOT better than the original. Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley Maclaine, Daryl Hannah, Julia Roberts and Olympia Dukakis played the *** out of their rolls.
Just watched the new Steel Magnolias and it doesnt even compare to the original! No one can fill the shoes of Shirley McLaine, Sally Field,Olympia Dukakis, Julia Roberts, Dolly Parton or Daryl Hannah.
Just finished watching "Steel Magnolias" with Queen Latifiah, Phylycia Rashad, and Alfre Woodard. OH.EMMM...GE! I not just sobbed, I literally cried. I like it every bit as much the original with Sally Field, Olympia Dukakis, and Shirley MacLean. The best iconic lines and scenes. The emotion. Wow!! Now..."Drink your juice, Shelby." Now about to watch South Park...It's on right now and, apparently, Honey Boo Boo is featured...must see.
I much much much preferred the old Steel Magnolias over the new one... no one could do it better then Sally Field... Julia Roberts. Dolly Parton... Olympia Dukakis, Shirley McMCLain.
So, I have many thoughts on the new "Steel Magnolias"... I still cried. Queen Latifah gave perhaps her best performance, and the casting was mostly good (Jill Scott can NOT hold a candle to Dolly Parton, sorry). Alfre Woodard and Phylicia Rashad were fabulous... Although sometimes I really missed Olympia Dukakis' dry deliver of the lines. Also... Darryl Hannah's Annelle was so much more on the mark.
I'd much rather watch the original movie of Steel Magnolias!!! The original cast for the movie did a much better job!! You can't replace the fantastic cast of Julia Roberts, Dolly Parton, Sally Field, Shirley Maclaine, Olympia Dukakis, and Daryl Hannah!! I don't like the new version of Steel Magnolias. You can't and shouldn't re-do a classic movie!! (Don't get me wrong, the women in the new movie are good actresses, and I like other movies that they have been in. But they shouldn't have remade this movie.)
Shirley Mclaine, Julia Roberts, Dolly Parton, Olympia Dukakis, Sally Fields. that is the cast for Steel Magnolias!! Watched the remake and was not impressed... some of the acting was horrible and they tried to say word for word like the original and it just wasn't good to me!
If they can remake Steel Magnolias with an all black cast, then they can cast Dolly Parton and Olympia Dukakis in a remake of Soul Plane.
Although I'm late... Shout out to the original Steel Magnolias! Shirley Maclaine, Sally Field, Julia Roberts, Olympia Dukakis, and Dolly Parton you ladies really deserved the Golden Award for Best Supporting Actress film!! The new Steel Magnolias *FAIL* bashful
Just watched the remake of Steel Magnolias on Lifetime. Was a little disappointed considering the all star cast that was in it. I enjoyed it but it was not nearly as good as the original. Phylicia Rashad did a really good job in Olympia Dukakis role of Clarice.
No offense to anyone but, The remake of Steel Magnolias ain't got nothing on the Original... Sally Fields, Julia Roberts, Dolly Parton, Daryl Hannah, Shirley Maclaine & Olympia Dukakis are the real Steel Magnolias...
Steel Magnolias was good, but nobody can do that last part like Olympia Dukakis."takin a whack at Wheezer".lol
Really disappointed in Steel Magnolias tonight. The cast sounded absolutely wonderful, and you'd have thought the humor would have been fantastic. Instead, they are sticking almost EXACTLY to the original script and very much UNDER acting their parts. Weezer and Clarice are the only ones that are fairly good. Clearly this remake was highly overestimated. Sally Fields, Julia Roberts, Olympia Dukakis, Shirley McClain, and Daryl Hannah.THAT was the perfect cast for the perfect movie...Lifetime needs to just stick to the movies they do best.originals. Just my opinion...
The only reason the all-black remake of Steel Magnolias should have been made was if Olympia Dukakis' role was played by Oprah. Judge away.

I'ma really try to not compare this Steel Magnolias to the original. Try. Cuz Shirley Maclaine & Olympia Dukakis were EVERYTHING.
Reminder - the updated Steel Magnolias comes on Lifetime at 9pm. Queen Latifah, Alfre Woodard, Jill Scott and Phylicia Rashad star in it. They're playing the roles originated by Sally Field, Shirley Maclaine, Dolly Parton and Olympia Dukakis. It should be good.
‘Steel Magnolias’ gets a reboot By Chuck Barney McClatchy-Tribune News “Steel Magnolias,“ the 1989 film starring Sally Field, Shirley Maclaine and a young Julia Rob­erts, gained a well-earned reputation as a quintes­sential “chick flick” and one of the soggiest tear­jerkers ever. But it was also darn funny. Viewers will be remind­ed of that fact during the brand-new, highly faithful Lifetime reboot that fea­tures an all-black cast, in­cluding Queen Latifah, Al­fre Woodard, Phylicia Ra­shad and Jill Scott. Yes, they’ll have you reaching for the tissues when trag­edy strikes, but they’ll also have you giggling like crazy with every tart zinger they hurl. Of course,you first must be willing to embrace the dubious notion of remak­ing an iconic film about a tight-knit group of South­ern women. (The original cast also included Dolly Parton, Daryl Hannah and Olympia Dukakis.) Why mess with such a beloved classic? Well, because Hollywood just can’t help itself. At least in this case, ...
Hey Ladies don't forget the Premiere of Steel Magnolias will be on lifetime Sunday, October 7 at 9pm. Alfre Woodard plays cranky Ouiser (Shirley Maclaine's role); Phylicia Rashad plays her sidekick, Clairee (Olympia Dukakis' role); relative newcomer (and Phylicia's real-life daughter) Condola Rashad takes on Shelby, the role Julia Roberts originated; Jill Scott plays Truvy (Dolly Parton's role), who runs the salon where they all convene, and her assistant Annelle (originally Daryl Hannah) is played by Adepero Oduye. You don't wanted to miss this a all -african american cast. I can't wait.
I auditioned for a part in "Steel Magnolias" at the Homestake Opera House in Lead and I have actually been cast for the part of Claree (played by Olympia Dukakis in the movie version). I am so excited and scared! This will be so much fun - if I can learn all my lines.
Aaccckk! Lifetime has went and remade one of the few chickflicks I like ( lets keep in mind I chose seeing Inglorious Basterds over The Notebook)!!! Steel Magnolias was PERFECT with Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley McClaine, Olympia Dukakis, and of course, Julia Roberts! But now they've got Queen Latifah and Phylisha Rashod to name a few portraying my beloved characters? For shame!!!
Ok, I may be the only one who feels this way, but I am annoyed that Lifetime feels the need to remake Steel Magnolias. I love all the actresses they cast in the roles but who can top Julia Roberts, Dolly Parton, Olympia Dukakis, Shirley Maclaine and Sally Field?!
My sister, Hope, and I love the Original "Steel Magnolias" with Julia Roberts, Dolly Parton, Sally Fields, Shirley MacClaine, Olympia Dukakis, and Daryl Hannah. I am excited about the New Remake that is coming out next month. I hope it is equally good in its own right. Below, list some of your favorite lines..:-)! I'll try to leave some for you!
No offense, but there is only one "Steel Magnolia's" an it was released November 15, 1989, with the original cast Sally Fields, Shirley Maclaine, Olympia Dukakis, an Julia Roberts, it was/ is one of the best of my time am NO remake stands a chance!!! ;) that is all!!
Shirley Maclaine and Olympia Dukakis in Steel Magnolias - Pure comedy!!
In the movie, Steel Magnolias (1989), M'Lynn (Sally Field) grieves for her daughter, and when she expresses a desire to hit something, Clairee (Olympia Dukakis) suggests slapping Ouiser (Shirley Maclaine).
having a really hard time imaging the remake of Steel Magnolias...don't get me wrong, I like Queen Latifa and Alfre Woodard, but really...nothing can top Sally Field, Shirley McLaine and Olympia Dukakis...and from what I just saw it...it is word for word the same...
Olympia Dukakis in Steel Magnolias is on the stage!
I'm going to grow old like Shirley Maclaine in Steel Magnolias: cranky as *** & secretly in love with Olympia Dukakis. In fact, why wait?
Which was weirder, Lily Tomlin as gospel choir virtuoso in "Nashville" or Olympia Dukakis as Louisiana matriarch in "Steel Magnolias"?

I actually stole that line from Olympia Dukakis. She said it to Shirley Maclaine in Steel Magnolias :)
Two more classic quotes from 'Steel Magnolias': Clarice (Olympia Dukakis) says to Weezy (Shirley Maclaine) "You know I love you more than my luggage", and shortly afterwards, Weezy responds "You are too twisted for color TV, Clarice". Hilarious but very indpired screenwriting!
My phone autocorrects "Duke" to "Olympia Dukakis." Should probably stop watching Steel Magnolias so much.
Me: How was the Steel Magnolias show? Friend: Iron Maiden. And it was good. Me: Man, how great is that Olympia Dukakis?
Hey ya'll - my mom is playing Clairee in Steel Magnolias. Jean von Metzke joins film greats Olympia Dukakis and Phylicia Rashād in one of the show's best roles.
YOU GUYS, IT'S FINALLY HERE! The first trailer for Lifetime's remake of Steel Magnolias with an African-American cast has hit the internet. As BlackBook's singular staff member covering the Black Steel Magnolias beat (it's a voluntary position), I am pleased as punch to share this with you because i...
Clairee and Ouiser. Olympia Dukakis and Shirley Maclaine were magnificent in "Steel Magnolias".
Olympia Dukakis from Steel Magnolias - "Spoken like a true smartass."
According to Olympia Dukakis in Steel Magnolias Mark, Rick and Steve are
oh we could exchange stories, as Olympia Dukakis said in Steel Magnolias "she comes with a past" that would be me ;)
Oh Lifetime...why why WHY would you even attempt to remake Steel Magnolias?!?! This really bothers me because Julia Roberts's signature color is pink, Sally Field can jog all the way to Texas and back, Shirley Maclaine thinks Olympia Dukakis is too twisted for color tv, Daryl Hannah doesn't care what you keep in your frigidaire, but you will not keep liquor in hers, and Dolly Parton's favorite emotion is laughter through tears!! You just don't mess with that!
Sporting a little Lemon Park...as Olympia Dukakis on Steel Magnolias says “The only difference between us and the animals, is our ability to accessorize”
Meggie's stroll into brought to mind an old Olympia Dukakis line in 'Steel Magnolias', "Looks like 2 pigs fighting in a blanket"
new Steel Magnolias behind the scenes..gonna be good. Afrie as Olympia Dukakis' crazy character..lord!!!
