I talked to Steve, a true lover of Classic movies. It was just two huge classic movie buffs yakking away. I enjoyed myself thoroughly. Steve knows his Kay Francis, who I also really love and we talked her movies. Some obscure but always worth a watch to see what fabulous frock Kay would be in. WE chatted a bit about a four time co star of Kays, Ricardo Cortez. Ricardo, real name Jacob Krantz was born in NYC to Austrian immigrants. Ricardo is Steves fave creep of precodes. Mine is Warren William. We also talked Steves top ten of his favorite actresses and bet me mine would not be the same. He was right. We had a couple of the same faves, he had one actress I had never heard of. All in all it was a fun chat with a fellow fan.
Thanks so much to Steve for coming on the show. I felt like we were old pals. I met him on my facebook page www.facebook.com/truestoriesoftinseltown. I am so happy to have him as a contributor. He always has some fascinating tidbit I never heard of. You can find him there and say hey.. He will also be back on the show. I loved him..

I talked to Karen from the fabulous blog Shadows and Satin. I've been a big fan of hers for a while so I was thrilled to have her on. She covers film noir and precode films. We talked about a couple you just can't miss precodes. We discussed ten movies she just doesn't get, meaning she understands the film but wonders why its a big deal. I agreed with a Loy of her choices. We also discussed the Turner Classic Movie Festival. I was so jealous. Next year if Im around I'm going..It was fun. Karen knows her stuff. Thanks so much for being a guest. I'd love you to come back on.

Mary and I had a great time chatting about Grace Kelly. The pictures in her book are fabulous. We discuss Grace's childhood where she was definitely not her fathers favorite. She set out to live life on her terms. She really was an amazing woman.
Thanks so much to Mary, you were a fun guest.
