Part 2 I talk to Author Dan Van Neste about his book They Coulda Been Contenders, Guess who was a mean Barrymore..

I talk to Author Dan Van Neste about his book, They Coulda Been Contenders:Twelve Actors That Should've Been Cinematic Superstars.  Dan picks twelve shoulda's and coulda's. Included the wonderful Zachary Scott best known as Monte Berigon in Mildred Pierce, Marian Marsh, Gloria Stewart, who had a comeback at 86 in The Titanic, John Hodiak best known for Alfred Hitchcocks, Lifeboat. We discuss his marriage to Anne Baxter and his tragic early death and so  much more. Dan also got to interview many of those profiled and we get to know some really great behind the scenes stuff. I enjoyed Dan thoroughly as I did his book.

Thanks so much to Dan for coming on the show. He was great. Mostly thanks to you for listening. You are the best.

Also sorry I've not been posting weekly podcasts. I had about 8 weeks all set for Iconic true love stories of Hollywood. My cohost for series April VeVea got engaged and is getting married in two weeks, how dare she!! Just kidding. April is the best and I wish her only wonderful things. I'm so happy for her. We had to postpone and I had to book some guests. I've got a great group coming up.

My Guest Author John DiLeo and I talk about Anti Valentines Movies. I think you’ll be surprised at a few we picked

In this podcast John Dileo and I chose movies for anti Valentines Day. Ones that will not make you feel bad if you are watching alone, or worse, with someone you'd rather not be with. We both love Romance and wonderful classic Romance movies, but since I was a kid I hated how just one day a year could make people feel rotten if they don't have their Clark Gable or Ava Gardner..Or even John T Doe. It's a day where we must be consumed with cards, triple the rate flowers and heart shaped candy that is probably from last year. I have celebrated V day, but only because the people I was with wanted me to. But I always insisted on low key and they'd get Hershey's kisses the next day. I believe if you are in love every day is Valentines day. Not just this industry made day to make people feel like crap. So know there are others that think of it as just a day. There are others on social media that you should just pass on by because they present a perfect package of, 'look we are so in love, and we're cute and he's drinking champagne out of my shoe'...take heart, they will probably break up in a week. Be good to yourself. Happy UnValentines Day.  Also Happy Valentines day to those who actually Love it..

Thanks so much to the very knowledgeable and fun John DiLeo. He always makes great choices and me laugh. 

Mostly thanks to the listeners. I so appreciate you.

I speak to Author Howard Johns On His Fab book A Stolen Paradise. Its a behind the scenes look at the making of the film The Night Of The Iguana. Booze, beach boys and The Liz and Dick show..

I enjoyed talking to Howard Johns about his book A Stolen Paradise. Its a wonderful look at what went on behind the scenes of making The Night Of The Iguana. It had a wonderful cast, Richard Burton, Ava Gardner, Deborah Kerr, Sue Lyon, Grayson Hall. Of course Elizabeth accompanied her Richard. The tabloids were saying would Richard go with Ava or Sue. Guess what, he stayed with his Elizabeth. There was lots of drinking, some drama, throw in John Huston and Tennessee Williams, what a story.  You will enjoy podcast and the book.

I want to thank Howard Johns for being so terrific. 

 

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