Part 2. Oscar winning actress Olympia Dukakis has played some of a wide variety of roles on stage and screen. But she is best known as Moonstruck's matriarch, Rose Castorini. Olympia Dukakis has been discovered many times on the long road to overnight stardom. She spoke with 51%'s Joe Donahue about the trip. (8:27).
Part 3. In the 400 years since the publication of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, the title characters have become famous for their eternal, albeit ill-fated love. But in the city of Verona this pair of star-crossed lovers is still very much alive. Each year thousands of tourists visit the famous balcony in Verona where some believe a real Romeo may have wooed Juliet. But what is even more surprising is the number of letters written each year to Juliet. Thousands of letters are sent to Verona each year, telling Juliet their love stories and asking for advice. Most surprising of all perhaps, is that those letters get answered. A team of secretaries posing as modern day Juliets answer letters from lovers around the globe. Radio Netherlands Lara Koerner visited with them at Juliet's club in Verona. (4:43).
