The screenplay to the film Angie was written with Madonna in mind – but she’d leave the project, and two different versions of what happened emerged.
Throughout the 1990s, Madonna dabbled with some pretty successful movie projects. She kicked the decade off in 1990 with Dick Tracy and in 1991 with the controversial documentary Truth Or Dare: In Bed With Madonna (the title you saw the film under was dependent on where you lived), the latter a press sensation of a film that won her a few new enemies as well as friends.
She followed that up, in tandem with her music career, by taking on a supporting role in A League Of Their Own, and a memorable part at that. She also contributed a song to the movie, that earned an Oscar nomination. Erotic thriller Body Of Evidence was perhaps less well received, but, of course, she headlined Alan Parker’s adaptation of the hit stage musical Evita, a film for which she was snubbed for Oscar recognition but still offered to perform at the Academy Awards ceremony. For all the talk of ego surrounding megastars, that always struck me as a classy touch.
