      Did you know?

        Her salary for Murder by Numbers (2002) was $15,000,000


      From Speed (94, Jan De Bont) to Speed 2: Cruise Control (97, De Bont), Sandra Bullock went from $500,000 a picture to $12.5 million. All this, of course, in a society where, famously, you are worth whatever you get. Though possibly some relic remains of an earlier culture which—while liking Ms. Bullock well enough—could reckon tht $500,000 was generous for her Annie Porter in that first Speed. Would it amaze you to hear the proposal that 500,000 young women in America could have done as well in the part? Or am I missing the point?

      As I said, I like Ms. Bullock: she is fun, tomboyish, observant, and pretty. But she has become a business, her own production company, and what is called a national favorite. So be it—but, as I go through the list, I defy you to be quite sure which film was which.

      She is the daughter of a German opera singer, Helga Bullock, and as a child the family traveled widely, following the mother's career. Sandra can sing, too. She was educated at Washington-Lee High School, and then briefly at East Carolina University before she went into acting. She did some TV and she had the lead role (the Melanie Griffith part) in a short-lived TV series, Working Girl (90). Her first significant movie was When the Party's Over (92, Matthew Irmas), followed by Demolition Man (93, Marco Brambilla); Wrestling Ernest Hemingway (93, Randa Haines); The Vanishing (93, George Sluizer); The Thing Called Love (93, Peter Bogdanovich), and then Speed.

      That was followed with While You Were Sleeping (95, Jon Turteltaub), her first vehicle; The Net (95, Irwin Winkler); Two if by Sea (96, Bill Bennett); A Time to Kill (96, Joel Schumacher); seriously out of her depth as Hemingway's girl in In Love and War (96, Richard Attenborough); and then Speed 2.

      For Hope Floats (98, Forest Whitaker), she was co-executive producer; with Nicole Kidman in Practical Magic (98, Griffin Dunne); the voice of Miriam on The Prince of Egypt (98); Forces of Nature (99, Bronwen Hughes); Gun Shy (00, Eric Blakeney), which she produced; 28 Days (00, Betty Thomas); a comeback in Miss Congeniality (00, Donald Petrie); Murder by Numbers (02, Barbet Schroeder); Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (02, Gallic Khouri).

      And so the girl next door is now fortysomething, a household name, but not yet in a single vital movie.
