I talk to author Robert Matzen about his book Mission: Jimmy Stewart And The Fight For Europe. We talk his love of A List actresses too..

Three times a charm with my guest Robert Matzen as we talk about his book Mission:Jimmy Stewart And The Fight To Save Europe.  We learn all about James time as a pilot in World War 2 and the horror he experienced. His PTSD, his outlook on life and Hollywood after the war. We also talk about Jimmy's love of A List actresses, who he almost married, his affair with Marlene Dietrich resulting in pregnancy than an abortion.  Jimmy was known as quite the ladies man...WHO KNEW??  Not me..

I want to thank Robert for being my guest again. This was his third visit and he's just great. 

Mostly I want to thank my listeners. You all are the best.

Part 5 of iconic love stories of Classic Hollywood are the musical couple Betty Grable and Harry James…Harry rumbled with George Raft over Betty..

On part 5 of iconic love stories of classic Hollywood my pal April VeVea Whitaker and I discuss Pin up Betty Grable and Harry James. They both had crazy childhoods. They met and it was KABOOM. The problem was Harry was still married to wife numero uno and Betty was involved in a two year on and off relationship with George Raft. After some drama they married. Harry was on the road a lot and Betty stayed in Hollywood doing movies. They both got addicted to booze and gambling. Their daughters definitely did not think Betty was Mommy Bestest. She was distant and could sometimes be abusive. Harry was away he got to be Disneyland dad. There was infidelity, IRS problems and after a while absence did not make the heart grow fonder. Betty found out about Harry's infidelity (she had heard rumors but chose to ignore them) in a gossip column so that was it after 22 years of marriage. We talk after the divorce up to their deaths. We believe they loved each other up until the end. 

Thanks to April as always..

I hope you like my new little ditty of a theme song. I wrote the lyrics (took me five minutes at most..HA!) I want to give humongous thanks to  Dennis Bach, who edits the show, wrote the music and produced, and the wonderful broadway babies that sang the ditty

Part 4 of Iconic Romances of Classic Hollywood deal with the love and life of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Their divorce broke the heart of Millions of Americans that loved Lucy too.

My cohost April VeVea Whitaker and I discuss Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz and their tumultuous love story. Desi was a compulsive womanizer but thought "How could she/Lucy be mad, they're only hookers." Nice try Desi. They stuck it out for twenty years. The divorce broke not only their hearts, but millions of their fans. We discuss how they met, their whirlwind romance, their success with Desilu and finally their divorce. Each remarried but we like to think they loved each other til the end. 

Thanks mucho to April for doing this with me. I love that Ms VeVea.

Part 3 of Iconic romances of classic Hollywood. April and I discuss Tracy and Hepburn..Was Spencer really gay..

In part 3 of iconic romances of classic Hollywood we discuss Tracy and Hepburn. They have been controversial since Scotty Bauers book came out and said he had sexual contact with Spencer. First he told Katherine Hepburn biographer he fixed Katharine up with one woman, then he changed it to about 120..In the Katharine book the author claims they were beards for each other. We say, poppycock..HA! He stayed married until the day he died and K and S never went out publicly. That doesn't mean its not possible about their sexuality, but beards no way. Regardless we admire both very much and I believe they loved each other. So give it a listen..

Thanks so much to April for being my partner in crime for the series..She's the best.
