Still Alice
Eagle-eyed friend Patsy happened to come across Mom, recognizing her, in the movie Still Alice, previously about which I'd had no knowledge.

Young Adult
When I saw the excellent Diablo Cody-written dark comedy Young Adult I did not expect to spot my mother in the baby shower scene as they go out onto the lawn, mostly as the film is set in the mid west. According to the film's official website, they shot a lot of the film back east.
Amusingly enough, even though she worked two or three days on it, Mom could not recall that exact project, despite it being the previous autumn: she finally tracked down the vouchers.

Day Player gig
Boardwalk Empire
Back in 2009 Mom was selected and upgraded for a line in the pilot episode of the Martin Scorsese directed the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, which premiered September 19th.
In a funeral scene, Mom plays a friend to the widow (played by Prudence Wright Holmes). Mom notices the entrance of Steve Buscemi and leans over, telling the widow, "Nooky: Thompson's here..."
After Buscemi gives his condolensces and departs, "Nooky" and my mom lean in as the widow realizes a slight "truth problem" with Buscemi's statement.

She's not alone: with my first credited role,
my name was misspelled as Geoffery, not Geoffrey.

30 Rock
Mom worked on the episode Moms for the NBC sitcom 30 Rock, which aired this date. Probably not as visible as she could have been, she stands behind and to the side of Tina Fey in the wardrobe room, and later is in the cast line-up singalong.

Cold Souls
Now and then I come across Mom in a film about which I either did not know in which she worked, or knew but somehow managed to forget or not catch the film in theatres.
Cold Souls mainly did the art house circuit and for whatever reason, I was unable to catch it during its release, but Mom did mention she worked on it. Over time I managed not to recall this, but did rent the DVD and suddenly... there was Mom...
Amusingly, my best friend Jennifer recognized Mom simultaneously, a fair feat as she's never met my mother in person (as it is, Jenn recognizes the back of my head in a movie faster and more easily than my own face...).

Memories of the strangest midnight show
Sometime during 1977 my brother's then girlfriend contacted me, asking if I would accompany her to the famous Eighth Street Theatre (home to the original Rocky Horror Picture Show Fan Club), to see I Could Go on Singing, as my brother didn't want to see it, and she believed I was a Judy Garland fan.
"No," I stressed. "I'm not a Judy Garland fan, I'm a Wizard of Oz fan, which is quite different."
But it was a 10pm showing, and being a Thursday, the last night it'd be playing, and I felt bad she'd be alone in Greenwich Village, so I agreed. Plus as there would be no way for me to get back to New Jersey, I would stay over at her place where I could play with her cat Pit-Face. Well, the dreadful hundred minute Judy Garland movie felt like seven hours. She and I were two of six in the entire audience. As the film ended not a second too soon, a peculiar announcement came over the theatre PA system:
"We usually clear the theatre for the midnight showing of All Dressed Up In Rubber With No Place To Go... but if y'wanna stay y'can..."
She and I looked at each other, wondering what th'heck kind of film would have that as a title... Then the Rocky Horror Fan Club all raced in and took up the first three or four rows. We both accurately deduced they apparently had a litany the way they do for Rocky Horror, and they did, making a very badly made silly movie far more entertaining (this was eleven years before even the KTMA episodes of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 hit the cable-waves).
Right from the get-go with a considerably substantial amount of female nudity (with which I have little to no issue), eventually the lead makes it to New York city, and there was a scene of a street magician, the scene essentially so the hero's backpack could be stolen. I saw someone in the watching crowd, and to my brother's girlfriend, I indicated a woman resembling Carole Wallace, who'd done some movie extra-work with my mother some months earlier.
Another shot of the audience and there was my mother...!
We flipped out over the hilarity; mom being in a silly bad movie with so much crude (to just lame) humour and so much "gratuitous" nudity.
After the screening, we spoke with Rocky Horror Fan Club president Sal Pino to convey this bit of trivia. It turned out Sal knew my actor friend Bob Osborne, and considering various events he'd attended, Sal realized (and was quite thrilled to deduce that), at some point he may actually have met my mother...!
Understandably we told mom about all this, but while for some time we tried to get her to come into New York to see it, schedules never quite worked out.
For years I sought out the film on VHS to no avail, and learned it went through a title change or three. When Mom worked on it, it had been titled Pelvis (its imdb entry title). Recently I stumbled across an online article that mentioned its All Dressed Up In Rubber With No Place To Go title, and that under the title Toga Party, it was available on DVD...!
I ordered a copy of it, which I received this entry date, and while it is the same film, my memory of the majority of it is extremely different. The riffing Rocky Horror Fan Club litany made it watchable (the riffing aspect downright hilarious at the time): the film on its own is rather dreadful, all but unwatchably so. For the DVD the film was not digitally "repaired" in any way, and generally everyone was orange in the badly lit interior scenes. The DVD is also full screen, so I cannot make out Carole Wallace, my memory has her at the far edge of the screen when we saw it in the theatre.
To save emailing the photos as file attachments, I created this page, below on which are frame grabs: Mom is on the right with the 1977 Giant Bug Eye style glasses (such were th'style at th'time...).
