Classic movies, true stories of tinseltown. All about classic Hollywood.

I talked to my friend Poseidon from the fabulous blog Poseidons Underworld. We had so much fun talking 70's movies of the week starring classic Hollywood Stars. Tear jerkers, both our encounters with David Cassidy, my encounter with Sean Cassidy doing his best Marlon Brando imitation. Lots of classic Hollywood Gossip It was very fun and he will be on again soon. He is a treasure trove of info. You will love him and his blog.

I talked to Stephen Michael Shearer about his biography on Hedy Lamarr titled Beautiful: The Life Of Hedy Lamarr. Its a really good read. I usually skip a page here and there but I didn't with this book. I was fascinated by her childhood, her life in Vienna, her marriage to the third richest man in Vienna and her story of her escape from him and Vienna. We talked Hedy's six marriages. None lasting or happy. Her incredible inventions and her movie career. They really did not know what to do with her. 

Of course being so beautiful and aging were weighing large in her mind. People would meet her and say" You WERE so beautiful. She soon took to getting extensive plastic surgery that was not at all flattering. She also started seeing Dr Feelgood for his amazing B vitamin shots (actually meth) She started acting erratically. She shoplifted, and then she moved to Florida and became a recluse, not even letting her children see her. In 1997 she was finally lauded for her inventions. She never got a penny from them. 

This is a very extensive look into Hedy's life. You can also see Stephen on the new Hedy Movie Bombshell. Its available on Netflix. 

I want to thank Stephen for being such a great guest. I'm looking forward to talking g to him about other women he wrote about; Gloria Swanson and his friend Patricia Neal. 

Thanks to the listeners. You are the best..

I talked to Carole Landis biographer Eric Gans. We talked her life, her husbands, her free attitude towards sex, her career , her traveling all over to entertain the troops during World War 2. Finally we got into her affair with Rex Harrison. She thought he was the ONE and love of her life, only one problem..he was married and had no intention of divorcing his wife. On the last night of her life Carole had dinner with Rex and its believed that Rex told her he was going to be in NYC for a long time doing the Broadway Show Anne Of A Thousand Days. What they spoke about we will never really know. Did he tell her they were over?? What is known is that Carole took enough Seconal to kill herself four times over. She left notes. One for mom and one for Rex. Rex was the first one to discover Caroles body sadly laid out in her bathroom. She was clutching rosary beads and the notes. Some cops got a hold of the note for Rex and Rex and his wife paid 500 dollars for it. Its a sad story of a very beautiful woman with many demons. 

Thanks so much to Eric. He was fabulous.. Check out his book
