Re: Welcome Joseph Egan for a Q & A on Mary Astor 1-21 & 1-22

Thanks Sue Sue. Yes, Mrs. Osborne is your documentarian. Joe was gracious enough to trust me with his incredible book. Another question Joe: Will you tell the SSO members that unbelievable story about the studio heads meeting and trying to stop Astor from continuing with her trial/law suit? Mrs. O

Re: Welcome Joseph Egan for a Q & A on Mary Astor 1-21 & 1-22

Joe- It's so interesting that Ruth Chatterton was also Bette Davis' idol, which seems to show that Astor, Davis and Chatterton were similar in their interests and priorities. I am hearing that NYC will be the next stop for the documentarian. She's planning to snag Molly Haskell and Robert Osborne. T...

Re: Welcome Joseph Egan for a Q & A on Mary Astor 1-21 & 1-22

Joe-

Is there any newsreel footage of the trial?
I know there are many photos of the trial taken by the swarm of newspaper reporters. I cannot imagine the noise and crowd and claustrophobia in that courtroom.

Re: Welcome Joseph Egan for a Q & A on Mary Astor 1-21 & 1-22

Joe-

Tell us more about what happened at the trial. As I remember Astor was making Dodsworth at the time - in the daytime and attending court at night. And is it true that co-star Ruth Chatterton went to court with Astor to help her get through the ordeal?

Re: Welcome Joseph Egan for a Q & A on Mary Astor 1-21 & 1-22

Joe

Thanks for your answers.
Do you think a transcript exists for the trial? Your book is so thorough that I was under the impression that you had gotten a transcript.

And is it true that she and Bette Davis worked on the dialogue of The Great Lie to help make it better?

After all your research and emotional investment in Astor, did you wish you had the opportunity to interview her?

Re: Welcome Joseph Egan for a Q & A on Mary Astor 1-21 & 1-22

Joe -

So the trial was NOT a divorce trial but a child custody trial.
Was Astor working on film projects at the time of the trial in 1936?

thanks,
Mrs. O

Re: Welcome Joseph Egan for a Q & A on Mary Astor 1-21 & 1-22

Hi Joe!

Yes that is right - PAUL Osborne - that delightful host of TCM. :)))

Will you tell us a bit about Mary Astor and her romance with John Barrymore - she was 17 and he was FORTY.....
and also about her first husband Kenneth Hawks.

Re: Welcome Joseph Egan for a Q & A on Mary Astor 1-21 & 1-22

HI JOE!!! We're so happy to welcome you to the SSO! In an odd twist of fate, another Mary Astor book was published ONE MONTH before your wonderful book, The Purple Diaries. Would you tell us in a nutshell what that other Mary Astor book concerns and briefly detail how your book is different from the...

Ron- Tell the story you told me about the reactions you've gotten from older people when they've been able to see the Vitaphone shorts after so many years, including relatives that you've been able to find. Mrs. Osborne PS I'm now a huge fan of Shaw and Lee and I am delighted to see that Jimmy Conli...

Re: WELCOME TCM GUEST PROGRAMMER RON HUTCHINSON DECEMBER 3 & 4.

Happy Saturday Ron!

That is a fabulous picture of you with Ben Mankiewicz by the way.

Did Fox have an early version of Vitaphone? For example with the Fox Movietone News?
I'm confused about that and what, if any, the difference was with their process and Vitaphone.

Many thanks,
Mrs. Osborne

Lynn:


I am so proud AND excited for you.
There is nothing better than good accurate research, and you obviously did yours with this book and before that with your documentary about Las Vegas. Which did you enjoy most - writing the book or making the documentary?

Best,

and as you and Sue sue well know, with The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, there was no 20th Century-Fox fanfare over the logo at the beginning of that movie, because Zanuck loved the score so much......
