Part 2 I talk to Author Stone Wallace about film noir, gangsters in the fifties and was Ma Barker just a sweet little old country lady..

Part 2

It was a lot of fun talking about the end of the forties and fifties gangster flicks.He tells us how it changed in the fifties. He also told me that it could be a falsehood that Ma Barker was the mastermind of her brood. Could it be possible she was just a simple country woman that gave birth to four sons that just happened to be psychopaths?? I'd be devastated if the Shelley Winters Ma Barker movie was not fact..

WE talk about Richard Conte, Sterling Hayden, Tough broads and lots more. WE digress every now and then but its always about classic films and actors. Also two gangsters that are most definitely in love. 

Thanks to Stony for coming on

Mostly thanks to my listeners!

I hope 2020 is a happy healthy one for you all.

My blonde shell expert April and I talk about a brunette. But what a brunette..The never dull and ever so gorgeous Ava Gardner

April Vevea, my partner in the blonde shell series and I talk for the first time about a brunette, the sexy, gorgeous and always fascinating Ava Gardener. We talk her three marriages, some romances, her big time love of parties, dancing and alcohol. Her disdain of Hollywood which led her to live in Spain for many years. She loved the bullfighters and the flamenco. We talk some of her films. My favorite Ava performance was in The Night Of The Iguana. Ava always loved Frank, and they would reunite for a night here and there, and the fighting would start all over again. We discuss Ava's basically being run out of Spain. The older you get the harder the booze hits. She was ready to go though. Her next stop was England where she lived out the rest of her days. Ava was a fun and down to earth woman, she could be brutally honest, about herself, especially. I know I love Ava. So does our blonde shell expert April.

 

As a PS I'll be delving  much deeper into Ava and Franks love/hate relationship when I do Classic Hollywood iconic love stories. Included will be Gable and Lombard, Bogie and Bacall, The Olivier's and The Burtons.

 

Thanks so much to my friend April. I so love working with her.

Mostly thanks to my listeners. You all are the best!

Part 2 I talk to Tom Johnson and David Fantle on their fabulous book Hollywood Heyday: 75 Candid Interviews With Golden Age Legends..Fred Astaire started it all

Tom and David join me once again. WE did an interview about a year ago and we talked about some of their interviews, but there were so many legends and so little time. WE discuss the wonderful chutzpah of youth. Both were fresh out of High school in Minnesota, had written fan letters to Fred Astaire. Fred Invited them to interview him. Armed with their trusty pen and paper and two groovy 70's polyester suits It was Hollywood he we come. WE talk Lucy, Ted Knight, grumpy Uncle Fester, Jaqueline Bisett and her famous tee shirt scene, my boyfriend Ed ASner, Gene Kelly, Robert Wagner..Please call me R.J...and so many more. Find out who there fave interviews were with. The book is a great read with wonderful insight. It all started with Fred..If Fred Talked to you, you must be OK. Lots of great stories.

 

Thanks so much to Tom and Dave. Some of the audio is a little weird as we were all in different places. My editor tried to get the sound more balanced.

 

Please check out their book. I highly recommend. They make some really funny observations.
