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.

My guests and I all tell a movie we are thankful for. It’s not necessarily our faves, but ones that mean a lot to us.

 Today my guests April VeVea, Stone Wallace, Lisa Sanita, John O'Dowd, Dayna Decarlo, Anthony Miranda and I talk about a movie we are thankful for. Some of our choices were life changers in one way or other. We are all lovers of classic films and it's hard to choose just one. Which are you thankful for??

I know for sure I'm thankful to my wonderful guests. Also all the other great folks that have come on my podcast this year. 

I'm thankful to TCM, classic movie lovers, the wonderful group on my facebook page and mostly to you all that listen to the podcast. You are the best.

Have a safe a wonderful thanksgiving!

April VeVea and I talk the life and death of Sharon Tate…

We discuss Sharon Tates life and loves, and her film career as short as it was. We discuss her relationship with Jay Sebring and her tumultuous marriage with Roman Polanski. Sharon was so incredibly beautiful, Elizabeth Taylor and Kim Novak refused to work with her. Of course we discuss Sharon's death by the Manson Family. Sharon was 8 months pregnant when she died. The murder of Sharon and the others was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. So heartbreaking. Hopefully you get to know Sharon a little bit more than you did before. 

Thanks so much to my classic movie blonde expert April VeVea

Part 2 I talk to author Laurie Jacobson about her book Dishing Hollywood…and did we dish. Exclusive scoop on Lassie, and Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood.

I had a great time dishing with Hollywood Historian, Author and all around cool chick Laurie Jacobson, We talked Scandals, Timmy's In The Well, which is a memoir by Jon Provost and co written by Laurie who BTW happens to be Jons wife.  There is news you may not have wanted to know about Lassie, Natalie Woods last night, her take on the night Paul Bern died and much more. Her book Dishing Hollywood, after each chapter gives a recipe. Laurie has a very unique style of writing that is humorous but real. It was a lot of fun. 

 

I want to thank Laurie for coming on the show. Hopefully she'll be on again soon. 

 

Mostly thanks to the listeners. You are the best!

I talk to the very fun Sloan De Forest about her book Must See SCI-FI : 50 Movies That Are Out Of This World….

I talk to author Sloan De Forest about her book Must See Sci Fi. WE had a lot of fun discussing sci-fi movies starting from the first one til some in the sixties and one from the seventies. We talk The Blob, the blobathon, blobmania, The Day The Earth Stood Still, Invasion of The Body Snatchers (the original) THEM!!! starring Kris Kringle, Edmund Gwenn and those giant ants. We also discuss The Thing From Outer Space, and how much we like the romance part of the movie. It all works. We discuss Russell Johnson AKA as The Professor in Gilligans Island, and The Thing From Another World. We find we both thought he was quite the looker. We also discuss Planet Of The Apes, Rod Serling providing the twist ending, Logan's Run and their Toga's provided by Frederics Of Hollywood and so much more. I was delighted to find another woman that talks classic sc-fi and we don't wear pocket protectors..I had a lot of fun. 

 

Thanks so much to Sloan. She was really great..

This is my second annual Halloween Spooktacular. My guest is Tom Ogden AKA The Ghost Guy..Who is Haunting Hollywood, listen and see…

 

Yes, It's that time again. It's my second annual spooktacular Halloween show. Today I have The Ghost Guy, Tom Ogden and we discuss Haunted Hollywood. There seems to be a whole population of ghosts haunting their old stomping grounds. We discuss ghostly sightings of Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift, Haunted Hotels, Clifton Webb, Peg Entwistle AKA The Hollywood sign girl and much more. I asked Tom a question that has puzzled me since the beginning, after being haunted by my sheet covered brothers and them saying boo. Why Boo?? Tom wasn't sure but he googled it for me. I'll link you to an answer. THere's gotta be more..

I hope you enjoy this podcast and my final sppoktacular until next year. 

 

Thanks much to Tom Ogden. He was a fun guest. 

 

Thanks mostly to my listeners. I may have some news coming up about the podcast. Fingers crossed.
