Re: The Q & A with Alexandra Dean on BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

Hi Alexandra, Thanks for dropping by this weekend! I was wondering if there are any segments on your cutting room floor that you were wishing could have been included in the final cut? Also curious about the distribution status. How widely will this be released to theaters? I was unable to attend th...

Re: Ricardo Cortez Q & A with Dan Van Neste on 8-26 & 8-27

...I would like to do another biography. At present, I have two possible subjects in mind, each of whom were active in the 1930’s (my favorite film decade). In my opinion, each has special plusses and minuses as a potential biographical subject. I’m currently trying to decide between them. I will b...

Re: Ricardo Cortez Q & A with Dan Van Neste on 8-26 & 8-27

Hi Dan, Thank you for joining us this weekend, and thank you for bringing Ricardo Cortez into a brighter light. Did he refer to himself as "Ricardo Cortez", or did he remain as "Jacob" in his family and social circles? Did he wish to have a longer career as a leading man, or was ...

Re: The Q & A with Steve Hayes, Tired Old Queen of the Movies 10-22 10-23

I do not mean this as critique but I must notice that your selections for your reviews are all Hollywood-centric. I do not see movies from: Toho, Mosfilm, Gaumont or Eros International. Is this conscious decision because of your perceived audience or because of your personal preferences? I must won...

Re: Q & A with Jeffrey Spivak about Buzz: The Life & Art of Busby Berkeley

I'm a fan of Mr. Berkeley's movies and look forward to reading your book. Though I'm daunted, as my impression is that the bright spots of his life is reflected only in the end product of his work; behind the celluloid it seems a dark tale of alcohol, tragedy and tyranny. Yes? I'm curious about Busb...

Re: AUTHOR BRENT PHILLIPS DISCUSSES CHARLES WALTERS!

Thanks for dropping by! Looking forward to getting your book. If you do a book tour, I'll be looking for an autograph!

By the way, Dinner's at 7:45pm. I used to always have it 8, but Lena Horne always took that as a song cue.

Enjoy!

Before you leave (must you?), was there anything that you wish you could've included in your book, but didn't?

Re: AUTHOR BRENT PHILLIPS DISCUSSES CHARLES WALTERS!

Initially Chuck had hoped to have a career in front of the camera. In the early 1930s he screen-tested for MGM but didn’t make the cut. Just as well because he then went to New York and recognized how important it was to really have mastered your craft before jumping into the Hollywood machinery. (...

Re: AUTHOR BRENT PHILLIPS DISCUSSES CHARLES WALTERS!

I'm so glad you're here. Some people count sheep to go to sleep; I plan fantasy dinner parties... deciding who'll sit at a table of 12. For the past month, you've had a seat at the table! I always enjoyed seeing Charles Walters dance with Judy Garland in the reconfigured finale of "Presenting L...

Re: Welcome Author Phillip Done August 8-10!

Thanks for spending time with us, Mr. Done! I'm not only a classic film fan, but also an opera fan; so I'm curious about the Miss Rutherford's father. I've seen his name listed as both John Rutherford and Jean Guilberty, and he is often referenced as "a tenor with the Metropolitan Opera"; ...

It's a large blue weight taken off my shoulders. Now, of course, I want to learn all about Charlotte Hunter. Thank you so much, Mrs. Osborne. I can finally rest after decades of searching.

Re: Q & A for Dana Andrews' Biographer

Thank you for spending time with us, Mr. Rollyson! Although it's not my favorite genre, I've found myself fascinated with Curse/Night of the Demon and have always been interested in how Dana Andrews became involved with this project. I now assume it was through his friendship with Jacques Tourneur. ...

Re: Soon to be playing- Our own MoiraFinnie

My calendar has been freed for this exciting evening. Moira, I've always been curious about something, and now I have you to ask: I've always wondered how the films are chosen in instances like this. Were you given any limitations? Did you choose from a menu, or was it carte blanche? It seems there ...
