Re: Welcome Scott Nollen to Discuss Glenda Farrell: Hollywood's Hard-Boiled Dame on 9/26 & 9/27

What do you think of as The Essential Glenda Farrell films? I loved her bit in Johnny Eager (1941) and her rye turn in the noir, I Love Trouble (1948), but I wonder which later roles you enjoyed, and why? I haven't had a chance to see too much of her television work, but enjoyed her flintier approa...

Mr. Nollen, I'd like to mention that I appreciate the candor and direct style of writing of your posts in this discussion. It is a refreshing approach to say the least -- we need more of it. :) I found some photos from the Broadway production of Forty Carats on the web site of the Museum of the Cit...

Re: Welcome Scott Nollen to Discuss Glenda Farrell: Hollywood's Hard-Boiled Dame on 9/26 & 9/27

I'm glad I was able to address the fact of what a good person Glenda was, as well as a terrific actor and a very beautiful woman. That's part of what I find so fascinating about her. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of "juicy" Hollywood stories of tragedy and scandal that sell a lot of ...

I am feeling much better than when I first got up today. I've done a lot more writing here than I expected, and I've enjoyed it very much. I'm glad I was able to address the fact of what a good person Glenda was, as well as a terrific actor and a very beautiful woman.

Re: Welcome Scott Nollen to Discuss Glenda Farrell: Hollywood's Hard-Boiled Dame on 9/26 & 9/27

By all accounts, Glenda Farrell was a very generous person. Is much known about any sort of charity projects she was involved in? Can you share with us anything about Glenda's relationship with her son and grandson if you can? There is a very interesting interview of Tommy Farrell at the bottom of ...

I forgot to mention that I also wrote a chapter on Robert Louis Stevenson, TREASURE ISLAND and KIDNAPPED for a new two-volume set called THE DISNEY VERSIONS (Scarecrow), which is in the editing process now. I think I am the only RLS scholar still living. My book on Stevenson, I STILL LIKE! :lol:

Thanks to PT, Hardwicke, and Christy for your great questions and contributions to this topic. I hope that everyone reading this will post more if you would like. If you don't mind Scott, I'd like to ask a bit about how you write. In your interview with Cliff Aliperti about this book, you mentioned...

Dear Scott, We are so lucky to have you visit us and share your expertise with our membership here on The SIlver Screen Oasis. As a working single mother, I am always fascinated with how the single mother in Classic Hollywood managed to raise a child. One of the quotes attributed to Farrell is &quo...

Thanks, Hardwicke, I knew I would get some excellent detailed information from you on the Thomas Richards subject. I think that pretty well sums it all up. Yes, indeed. Marjorie Reynolds as Bobbie Logan! Of course I am very familiar with her because of the MR. WONG films, each I've seen about two do...

Following up on Hardwick's excellent questions, when researching this book, were you able to be in contact with anyone who knew Glenda Farrell? Unfortunately, no. I tried to get back in contact with Julie Harris, but it had been many years since she and I had talked, and her health was failing quit...

What was the most unexpected discovery about Glenda Farrell that you encountered during your research? Was there any information that you found, but that didn't make it into the book? Good evening to the most esteemed Mr. Hardwicke Benthow. I was hoping you'd drop in. In general, the fact I found m...

Re: Welcome Scott Nollen to Discuss Glenda Farrell: Hollywood's Hard-Boiled Dame on 9/26 & 9/27

Scott, I know that many members like the Torchy Blane movies with Glenda. How did she feel about the series? Did the casting help her career? Glenda invented that tough-dame news reporter for MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM (1933), so the Torchy Blane series didn't offer her anything new for a characteri...
